Home Capital announces stock dividend and increased cash dividend 
TORONTO, Feb. 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Home Capital Group Inc. (TSX: HCG) is pleased 
to announce that its Board of Directors has approved a stock dividend of one 
common share per each issued and outstanding common share, which has the same 
effect as a two-for-one split of the common shares. 
The stock dividend will be paid on March 10, 2014 to shareholders of record at 
the close of business on February 28, 2014. Share certificates representing 
common shares issued pursuant to the stock dividend will be mailed to Home 
Capital's registered shareholders on or about March 10, 2014. Non-registered 
shareholders' brokerage accounts will be credited for the additional shares 
representing the stock dividend on or about March 10, 2014. The stock dividend 
will effectively have no unfavourable tax consequences for Canadian 
shareholders or the Company. 
Home Capital's common shares will be traded in accordance with the "due bill" 
procedures of the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) from February 26, 2014 through 
March 10, 2014. This means any trades that are executed on the TSX during this 
period will be identified to ensure purchasers of Home Capital's common shares 
receive the entitlement to the stock dividend. Home Capital's common shares 
are expected to begin trading on an ex-dividend basis, without an attached due 
bill entitlement to the stock dividend, on the TSX on March 11, 2014. The due 
bill redemption date will be March 13, 2014. 
The stock dividend will increase the number of Home Capital's outstanding 
common shares from 34,744,090 to 69,488,180. Home Capital is undertaking the 
stock dividend to provide greater liquidity to Home Capital shareholders, 
increase and broaden Home Capital's shareholder base, and improve 
accessibility to Home Capital stock. 
Home Capital's Board of Directors has also approved the payment of a quarterly 
dividend of 32.0 cents per share on the outstanding common shares of the 
Company. This represents a 4.0 cent per share increase in its quarterly 
dividend and is equivalent to an annual dividend of $1.28 per share. The 
dividend increase reflects the continuing success of Home Capital's operating 
subsidiaries, Home Trust Company and PSiGate. The dividend is payable on March 
1, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 24, 
2014 and will be paid on shares outstanding prior to the payment of the stock 
The quarterly dividend on the common shares is designated as an "eligible" 
dividend for the purposes of the Income Tax Act (Canada) and any similar 
provincial legislation.
