  • As of December 31, 2020, Century’s tangible book value, when viewed in reference to the current purchase price of $642 million, represents 175 times the book value.

  • Using cash on hand on its balance sheet, Eastern will fund the purchase price.
  • Eastern also announced an increase of 33% to its quarterly dividend to $0.08 per share in line with its capital management initiatives.
