Dividends FAQ

Class A1 shares were issued to original shareholders of Ahtna, Incorporated in 1971 who also enrolled to a village.

Class A2 settlement common stock was issued to original enrollees of Ahtna, Incorporated in 1971 who did not enroll to a village. Since the Class A2 shareholder is not enrolled to a village, they receive the 7(j) money directly.

All other classes do not receive this distribution.

The amount of 7(i) distributions varies depending upon the natural resource net profit of the regional corporations. Ahtna receives money from other regional corporations throughout the year.
