RUMSON, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / October 6, 2017 / Chase Packaging Corporation, which trades over-the-counter under the symbol ”CPKA” (OTC PINK: CPKA), today announced that its Board of Directors declared a ten percent (10%) stock dividend on its outstanding Series A 10% Convertible Preferred Stock (”Preferred Stock”). Shareholders of record as of November 15, 2017, will receive the stock dividend for each share of Preferred Stock owned on that date, payable on December 1, 2017. The dividend will be paid in kind (i.e., in additional shares of Preferred Stock) based on the stated value of $100 per share.

The Board’s declaration is in accordance with the provisions of the Statement of Resolution Establishing the Preferred Stock which provides that the Board of Directors may, in the exercise of its sole discretion, declare and pay a ten percent (10%) annual dividend on the stated value, such dividend payable either in cash or in kind, or any combination thereof.

Fractional shares will be accumulated until whole shares can be issued. As of October 6, 2017, Chase Packaging had 33,238 shares of Preferred Stock outstanding.

Management of the Company is seeking to secure a suitable merger partner wishing to go public or to acquire private companies to create investment value for the Company. However, there is no assurance that a transaction will be concluded.
