The Board of Directors of MGE Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGEE) today declared a 3-for-2 stock split in the form of a common stock dividend. The stock split is expected to help keep the stock affordable for investors.

The common stock dividend is payable Feb. 7, 2014, to shareholders of record at the close of business on Jan. 24, 2014.

"The stock split underscores the confidence the Board of Directors has in our company's long-standing commitment to shareholder value," said Gary Wolter, chairman, president and CEO.

The company's last stock split was in 1996 when a 3-for-2 stock dividend was issued.
