Dividend Declaration

In January 2024, the Company's Board of Directors (the “Board”) declared a $0.26 cash dividend per common share payable on February 15, 2024 to each shareholder of record on January 31, 2024, and in its capacity as General Partner of the Operating Partnership, authorized a $0.26 cash distribution per Operating Partnership unit to the Operating Partnership's unitholders.

At-the-Market Offering

Under our at-the-market stock offering (“ATM Offering”) program, which commenced February 2021, and was replaced with a new program in December 2023, we may offer and sell our common shares, $0.01 par value per share, having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $250.0 million. We may sell the common shares in amounts and at times to be determined by us but we have no obligation to sell any of the common shares. Actual sales, if any, will depend on a variety of factors to be determined by us from time to time, including, among other things, market conditions, the trading price of the common shares, capital needs and determinations by us of the appropriate sources of its funding. We currently intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of common shares pursuant to the ATM Offering program for working capital and general corporate purposes. As of March 31, 2024, we had approximately $220.1 million of common shares remaining available for sale under the ATM Offering program. There were no sales of our common shares during the first quarters of 2024 or 2023.
Share Repurchase Program

In May 2023, the Board authorized the repurchase of up to $100.0 million of the Company’s outstanding common shares through May 31, 2025, replacing the previously authorized plan to repurchase up to $80.0 million of the Company's outstanding common shares through May 31, 2023. Repurchases may be made from time to time through open market, privately-negotiated, structured or derivative transactions (including accelerated share repurchase transactions), or other methods of acquiring common shares. The Company intends to structure open market purchases to occur within pricing and volume requirements of Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act. The Company may, from time to time, enter into Rule 10b5-1 plans to facilitate the repurchase of its common shares under this authorization. The Company did not repurchase any common shares in both the three months ended March 31, 2024 and March 31, 2023. The remaining amount of common shares authorized to be repurchased under the program as of March 31, 2024 was approximately $100.0 million.
