Corporate Activities

On December 16, 2019, New Residential’s board of directors declared a fourth quarter 2019 dividend of $0.50 per common share or $207.8 million, which was paid on January 31, 2020 to stockholders of record as of December 31, 2019.

On February 14, 2020, in a public offering, New Residential issued 14.0 million shares of its 6.375% Series C Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Preferred Series C”), par value $0.01 per share, with a liquidation preference of $25.00 per share for net proceeds of approximately $338.7 million. To compensate the Manager for its successful efforts in raising capital for New Residential, in connection with this offering, New Residential granted options to the Manager relating to 1.4 million shares of New Residential’s common stock at the closing price per share of common stock on the pricing date, which had a fair value of approximately $1.0 million as of the grant date. The assumptions used in valuing the options were: a 1.55% risk-free rate, a 9.00% dividend yield, 17.39% volatility and a 10-year term.
