Two Harbors Investment Corp. Announces Second Quarter 2023 Common and Preferred Stock Dividends
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Two Harbors Investment Corp. (NYSE: TWO), an Agency + MSR mortgage real estate investment trust, today declared a dividend of $0.45 per share of common stock for the second quarter of 2023. The second quarter dividend is payable on July 28, 2023 to common stockholders of record at the close of business on July 5, 2023. The common stock dividend is a function of several factors, including sustainability, earnings and return potential of the portfolio, taxable income, impact to book value and the market environment.
Two Harbors also declared today the following preferred stock dividends:
- a dividend of $0.50781 per share of the 8.125% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock;
- a dividend of $0.47656 per share of the 7.625% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock; and
- a dividend of $0.45313 per share of the 7.25% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock.
The Series A, Series B and Series C preferred dividends are payable on July 27, 2023 to the applicable preferred stockholders of record at the close of business on July 12, 2023.
“The decision to reduce the dividend this quarter was not a function of downward pressure on earnings, but rather a strategic focus on enhancing book value and further investing capital into a positive Agency MSR and MBS environment,” stated Bill Greenberg, Two Harbors’ President and Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that at this level the dividend will be sustainable and competitive, while allowing us to invest additional capital at very attractive spreads and grow our MSR business.”
