PSCU Financial Services gives CUs 20.5 million from Visa IPO
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (4/29/08)--PSCU Financial Services will give its credit unions $20.5 million it received in proceeds from Visa’s initial public offering (IPO), the company announced yesterday. The payments will be made in mid-May. “We are under no legal obligation to return these funds, but the directors agreed that distributing these monies to the Visa-issuing credit unions under our principal umbrella will help these credit unions further invest in new products and services that can drive long-term growth,” said PSCU Board Chairman Craig Esrael, president, First South CU, Bartlett, Tenn. During the past year, PSCU has returned $64 million to its members, including more than $32 million in cash dividends, which is a record, said David J. Serlo, PSCU Financial Services president/CEO. The Visa returns are an added bonus to member-owners, who also received a $24.1 million dividend for 2007, including $5.1 million in special MasterCard dividends from MasterCard’s IPO. PSCU Financial Services is a credit union service organization based in St. Petersburg, Fla. It is owned by more than 500 member credit unions.
