Company Release - 7/29/2020 4:30 PM ET

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CTO Realty Growth (NYSE American: CTO) (the “Company”) today announced that the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.40 per share payable on August 31, 2020, to shareholders of record on August 17, 2020.

Laura M. Franklin, Chairman of the Board, stated, "The Board is pleased that the Company’s growth in revenue continues to support our dividend tradition that began in 1976, and represents a trailing twelve-month dividend growth of over 160%.” Ms. Franklin continued, “This dividend increase is reflective of the Company’s strong cash flow growth and supportive of the Board’s decision to pursue a potential REIT conversion for 2020, which if approved by shareholders, would require the Company to pay a substantially higher dividend in 2020 to meet the requirements for a REIT’s distribution of taxable income.”
