CHS shares its economic success with its cooperative- and producer-owners by returning cash in the form of patronage and equity redemption that helps them grow and contributes to vital rural communities. Cash distributions highlight the value the cooperative business model delivers to its stakeholders.
Since fiscal 2010, CHS has returned more than $3 billion in cash, equity redemption and preferred stock to its owners.
