Shareholders Receive Update on Sealaska’s Business Success at 2018 Community Meetings
Thursday, June 7, 2018

Shareholders and community members from Klawock, Alaska attend a meeting at the local ANB Hall.

Sealaska recently completed well-attended community meetings in nine Southeast Alaska and Washington communities.

In addition to getting quality one-on-one time with shareholders during each meeting, President and CEO Anthony Mallott updated them on Sealaska’s financial recovery. Sealaska’s 2017 net income of $43.3 million is one of its greatest financial performances to date. That is a $78 million turnaround since the losses Sealaska experienced in 2013.

Anthony Mallott attributed the financial recovery to Sealaska’s successful seafood, timber and government services businesses, which made a $19 million profit in 2017. “We have people working every day on your behalf to take this success and even make it greater,” Mallott said at the Juneau community meeting. “Our decision-making is stronger. Team-based management is working for us. People on those teams are highly-qualified and have the capacity to create the operational turnaround for Sealaska.”

Sealaska funds educational and professional development programs like scholarships and internships, issues dividends twice a year to shareholders and donates to cultural and community programs. If you were not able to attend the meetings, more detailed information is available in the community meeting booklet here, along with customized information sheets about Sealaska’s contributions and impact within each place we visited: SitkaJuneauHainesHoonahPrince of WalesKetchikanSouthcentral Alaska, and Washington State.
