The board of Healthcare Trust Inc., a publicly registered non-traded real estate investment trust sponsored by AR Global, has approved a change in the company’s common stock dividend policy.
The REIT said that it “will no longer declare dividends based on daily record dates, but instead, any future dividends authorized by the board will be paid on a monthly basis in arrears based on a single record date during the applicable month.”
The company indicated that the change will have no impact on its daily dividend declarations for June 2020, all of which are paid around July 5, 2020.
