April 2008

From your chairman

During the first quarter of 2008, financial worries continue to exist in the financial
capitals of this nation. The latest has been the demise of Bear Stearns, one of the largest global investment banks, securities trading, and brokerage firms in the world, which has existed for more than eighty years. This company, with a book value of more than 7 billion dollars, was purchased for 240 million dollars. While CTECU used some of its capital to cover a small portion of its expenses during 2007, we also increased our Net Worth to Asset Ratio throughout 2007. Additionally, we are pleased to announce that our income exceeded our expenses for the first quarter of 2008. CTECU continues to serve 15216 each of you, our member/owners, to the best of our ability. We will not compromise that trust. With the current dividend rates, CTECU recommends that you invest in the higher paying CDs that are currently available. Please note the following Regular CDs starting at $2,000.00 minimum balance and the rates that are currently available thru 4-30-08: 3 months: 6 months: 12 months: 30 months: 60 months: 2.96% rate and 3.00% APY* 3.11% rate and 3.15% APY* 3.26% rate and 3.30% APY* 3.45% rate and 3.50% APY* 3.60% rate and 3.65% APY*

Near the end of the last Board of Director’s meeting, the directors declared the dividend rates for the month ending March 31, 2008, as follows: Regular Share dividends at 1.00% rate yielding 1.00% APY*; IRA Share dividends at 1.50% rate yielding 1.51% APY* and Share Draft dividends at 0.25% rate yielding 0.25% APY*. *APY denotes Annual Percentage Yield.
