Corporate Activities

On December 16, 2020, New Residential’s board of directors declared a fourth quarter 2020 dividend of $0.20 per common share or $82.9 million, which was paid on January 29, 2021 to stockholders of record as of December 31, 2020.

On February 8, 2021, New Residential’s board of directors authorized the repurchase of up to $200.0 million of its common stock through December 31, 2021. Repurchases may be made from time to time through open market purchases or privately negotiated transactions, pursuant to one or more plans established pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or by means of one or more tender offers, in each case, as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements. The amount and timing of the purchases will depend on a number of factors including the price and availability of New Residential’s shares, trading volume, capital availability, New Residential’s performance and general economic and market conditions. No share repurchases have been made as of the date of issuance of these consolidated financial statements. The share repurchase program may be suspended or discontinued at any time.
