Fairfax Revises Record Date of Annual Dividend


TORONTO, Jan. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited (TSX: FFH and FFH.U) has revised the record date for its annual dividend announced earlier today to January 18, 2019 (the originally announced record date of January 21, 2019 is a holiday in the United States).  The dividend payment date of January 28, 2019 remains the same.

The first paragraph of the press release of earlier today announcing the annual dividend should therefore be read as follows:
