Servus Credit Union Celebrates a Record-High Profit Share Payout With Province-Wide Celebrations

Servus Members Get It - A Profit Share Celebration

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 31, 2011) - Close to 40 Servus Credit Union locations will be participating in a province- wide celebration today in light of its highest Profit Share payout to members in the organization's history. The Profit Share total reached $43 million in 2010, which is up from $42.2 million shared in 2009.

Members are invited to bring their friends and families to any *participating branch today for free refreshments and snacks between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., courtesy of Servus Credit Union.

"Members received their cash payouts in December 2010, which was a good time for our members' families," explained Garth Warner, President and CEO of Servus Credit Union. "The more business that members have with Servus, the greater their profit share was, and will continue to be. The Profit Share program is just one way we say thanks for continuing to do business with Servus."

Servus Credit Union is owned by members and is a part of Alberta's communities. To become a member, customers simply open an account and purchase a minimum of $1 in Common Shares.

"The Servus Profit Share program is uncommon in the financial sector in Alberta, and is one of several 'feel good' initiatives that we take part in to help build better our communities," continues Mr. Warner. "Servus members get it. They understand that banking with Servus enables them to share directly in our profits."

Last year's program paid cash as well as a dividend on Common Shares and Investment Shares. Commercial and agricultural members received cash as a service charge rebate.
