Item 8.01. Other Events.

On May 18, 2021, the Board of Directors of Stock Yards Bancorp, Inc. voted to maintain the Company's quarterly cash dividend at $0.27 per common share. The dividend will be paid on July 1, 2021 to stockholders of record as of June 21, 2021.

Additionally, the Company announced that its Board of Directors extended the Company’s stock repurchase plan’s expiration date to May 2023. First implemented in May 2019, the stock repurchase plan authorized the repurchase of one million shares. To date, the Company has repurchased approximately 259,000 shares at an average cost of $35.41 per share. Stock repurchases are expected to be made from time to time on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, subject to applicable securities law. The plan, which will expire in two years unless otherwise further extended or completed at an earlier date, does not obligate the Company to repurchase any specific dollar amount or number of shares prior to the plan’s expiration. On May 18, 2021, Stock Yards Bancorp, Inc. issued a press release, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and incorporated by reference, announcing the dividend increase and the extension of the stock repurchase program.
