Tanger Declares Special Dividend

Dec 10, 2015, 16:15 ET from Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc.

GREENSBORO, N.C., Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. (NYSE: SKT) announced today that its Board of Directors approved a special dividend of $0.21 per share to be paid on January 15, 2016 to holders of record on December 31, 2015. The amount of the special dividend, which will be a 2015 distribution for tax purposes, is in line with the company's previously announced expectations. This special dividend, combined with regular quarterly dividends paid in 2015, represents a 38.1% increase over the regular quarterly dividends paid in 2014.

Tanger's work to execute its tax deferral strategy is ongoing. Some of the asset sales proceeds may continue to be held with a qualified intermediary and/or an exchange accommodation titleholder to facilitate tax efficient reinvestment. Successful execution of this strategy and the actual amount of tax gains ultimately deferred, if any, is dependent on a number of factors, some of which the company does not control. Any proceeds not deferred may be used for the payment of an additional special dividend, if required.
