NAPERVILLE, Ill., Aug. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicago Rivet & Machine Co. (NYSE American: CVR) today announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share payable September 20, 2023 to all shareholders of record on September 5, 2023.  This is a $0.12 per share reduction from the $0.22 per share quarterly cash dividend that the Company has declared and paid in recent quarters.

The Company stated that while its financial condition remains sound, the Board of Directors determined that the reduction in the dividend was prudent given the Company's recent operating performance.  As previously disclosed, the Company is working on implementing initiatives to improve performance.  In particular, the Company is reviewing and seeking to adjust pricing in light of higher operating costs related to the current economic and labor market environment and has made investments in equipment to improve operating efficiency.  The Company also intends to invest in strategic human resources to help lead efforts to improve the Company's performance.  In addition, the Company will pursue opportunities to develop new customer relationships and build on existing ones in all markets served.

With respect to the payment of future dividends, the Board of Directors will continue to consider the Company's current profitability, the outlook for long-term profitability, known and potential cash requirements and the overall financial condition of the Company.
