Sealaska Achieves one of the Strongest Years in its History
Thursday, May 3, 2018

“Today, we are experiencing the positive effects of focusing on operational performance and profitability, which has a direct impact on benefits and programs for shareholders,” said Sealaska CEO Anthony Mallott.

Sealaska has achieved one of the most successful years in its history, recording a net income of $43.3 million, up $29.3 from $14 million earned in 2016. These and other financial performance highlights were published today in Sealaska’s 2017 Annual Report.

“Today, we are experiencing the positive effects of focusing on operational performance and profitability, which has a direct impact on benefits and programs for shareholders,” said Sealaska CEO Anthony Mallott. “The steady growth seen in our profitable businesses and recovery from the significant losses in 2013 are the true indications of positive change,” he said.

The success of its businesses allows Sealaska to provide meaningful and sustainable shareholder benefits. Sealaska paid a total of $22.5 million in shareholder distributions in 2017. In just the first half of 2018, more than $23 million was paid in shareholder distributions.

“The Sealaska board and management are proud that Sealaska is financially strong and able to make consistent and meaningful contributions to efforts our shareholders care about,” said Sealaska Board Chair Joseph Nelson. “In 2018, Sealaska is adding $10 million to the scholarship endowment and exploring options to offer its shareholders a bereavement benefit,” he said.


Sealaska businesses work to enhance the health and productivity of the ocean and water environments. Sealaska also searches for ways to sustainably benefit from its natural resources. Through balanced land management of our forested lands, environmental services work and our seafood investments, we look to find sustainable ways to realize income to benefit Sealaska shareholders. Our businesses are driving the success of Sealaska. By utilizing the wisdom of our ancestors, we are helping to solve the challenges of today and tomorrow.
