Current and historic dividend information, as well as quarterly financial statements, investor presentations, and earnings call transcripts are available online through Alerus’ investor relations website at

The Company also announced that its board of directors approved a new stock repurchase program (the “New Stock Repurchase Program”) which authorizes the Company to repurchase up to 1,000,000 shares of its common stock, subject to certain limitations and conditions. The New Stock Repurchase Program will become effective on February 18, 2024, and will expire on February 18, 2027.
