DEERFIELD, Ill.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--BAB, Inc. (OTCBB: BABB), today announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly distribution of one cent ($0.01) per share, payable on October 4, 2013, to shareholders of record as of September 20, 2013.
The Company believes that, for tax purposes a portion of the distribution and any future distributions that the Board may declare in 2013 (collectively, the “Distributions”) may be treated as a return of capital to shareholders to the extent of each shareholder’s basis, while the remaining portion of the Distribution may be treated as a dividend.
The portion of the Distributions that will be treated as dividends will not be determined until after December 31, 2013, as that portion is dependent upon the Company’s earnings and profit for tax purposes for its fiscal year ending November 30, 2013, and the Company will not be able to definitively calculate its earnings and profits until after the end of the fiscal year. The final determination will be reported to recipients of the Distributions on a tax information return in early 2014.
BAB, Inc. franchises and licenses Big Apple Bagels®, My Favorite Muffin®, SweetDuet Frozen Yogurt & Gourmet Muffins® and Brewster’s® Coffee. The Company’s stock is traded on the OTCBB under the symbol BABB and its web site can be visited at www.babcorp.com.
