CTO Realty Growth Increases Quarterly Dividend by 3.7% and Declares Dividends for the Second Quarter 2022
WINTER PARK, Fla., May 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CTO Realty Growth, Inc. (NYSE: CTO) (the “Company” or “CTO”) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized, and the Company has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $1.12 per share of common stock for the second quarter of 2022 (the “Common Stock Cash Dividend”), which represents a 3.7% increase as compared to the Company’s previous quarterly cash dividend of $1.08 per share of common stock. The Common Stock Cash Dividend is being increased to account for the Company’s strong year-to-date cash flow growth and the need to distribute a certain amount of taxable income to maintain its REIT tax status.
The Common Stock Cash Dividend represents a 12.0% year-over-year increase as compared to the Company’s second quarter 2021 common stock cash dividend and an annualized yield of approximately 7.1% based on the closing price of the common stock on May 23, 2022.
The Common Stock Cash Dividend is payable on June 30, 2022 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on June 9, 2022 and the ex-dividend date for the Common Stock Cash Dividend is June 8, 2022. The Common Stock Cash Dividend will apply to pre-split shares only and will not be impacted by the Company’s previously announced stock split, which is to be effective July 1, 2022.
The Board of Directors also authorized, and the Company has declared, a quarterly cash dividend of $0.39844 per share of the Company’s 6.375% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock for the second quarter of 2022, to be paid on June 30, 2022 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on June 9, 2022.
