Change to the Shareholder Investment Plan

CIBC also announced today that it will make a change to its elections under the CIBC Shareholder Investment Plan (the “Plan”). 

Under the Plan, CIBC offers the Dividend Reinvestment Option for Canadian residents and the Stock Dividend Option for US residents, to reinvest dividends, respectively, on their CIBC common shares and preferred shares in the form of CIBC common shares in lieu of receiving their dividends in cash. Canadian resident shareholders may also purchase additional common shares under the Share Purchase Option.

For the July 29, 2024 dividend and for future dividends declared until further notice, common shares received by participants under the Plan will be issued from treasury without a discount.  Previously, common shares received by participants under the “Dividend Reinvestment Option” or “Stock Dividend Option” portions of the Plan were issued from treasury at a 2% discount to the Average Market Price (as defined in the Plan).

Registered shareholders resident in Canada or the United States wishing to join the Plan can obtain an enrolment form from CIBC’s agent, TSX Trust Company (Tel: 1-800-387-0825 or e-mail at [email protected]).

In order to participate in time for the July 29, 2024 dividend payment date, enrolment forms from registered shareholders must be received by TSX Trust Company before the close of business on June 21, 2024.  Eligible beneficial or non-registered shareholders must contact their financial institution or broker well in advance of the above date for instructions on how to enroll in the Plan.
