Royal Oak’s current annual dividend target of 6.69% ($3.78/share) is currently fully covered by Funds From Operations (FFO). FFO is a non-GAAP supplemental measure of operating performance, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts. The dividend is paid monthly and can be taken as cash or reinvested by purchasing additional shares at a 2% discount. Dividends are not guaranteed and are paid when declared by the Board of Directors, subject to certain corporate limitations.
Royal Oak’s REIT structure permits a dividend which is tax-advantaged for many stockholders. REIT dividends are not qualified dividends; a portion of REIT dividends may be ordinary income and a portion may constitute a non-taxable return of capital for federal income tax purposes. At least 70% of Royal Oak’s dividend has been a return of capital in each of the last 4 tax years (2015-2018). A portion of the REIT dividends that are not treated as a return of capital may be taxed at a reduced effective tax rate for stockholders entitled to a deduction created by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.
In addition to consistent income in the form of a monthly dividend, Royal Oak’s share price has increased 13%, growing from $50.00 to $56.50 for shares purchased at inception (March 2014). Assuming reinvested dividends, as of May 2, 2019, initial investors have experienced a total return of 63.8% on their original investment since March 2014, with a compound annual growth rate of 9.9%.
