I am pleased to report that our Board of Directors has approved a dividend rate for the third quarter of 2005 of 5.25% (annualized). The dividend will be distributed to member financial institutions on October 31, 2005. The Home Loan Bank's dividend rate for the second quarter of 2005 was 5.00% and for the first quarter of 2005 was 4.70%. The dollar amount of the third quarter dividend will be approximately $49 million.

The dividend reflects the Bank’s low-risk profile and conservative investment strategy. It represents a payout of approximately 80% of core earnings for the quarter. Retained earnings after the dividend payment will be approximately $234 million. The Bank intends to rebuild retained earnings to approximately $250 million (the December 2002 level) by next year.
