DENVER, July 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund Inc. ("DPF"), a public reporting, NAV REIT (NASDAQ:ZDPFEX) (NASDAQ:ZDPFAX) (NASDAQ:ZDPFWX) (NASDAQ:ZDPFIX), announced today that its Board of Directors authorized for each class of common stock a dividend of $0.03 per share, subject to adjustment for class-specific expenses, for the month ending July 31, 2017 (the "July Dividend").
The July Dividend will be payable to stockholders of record as of the close of business on each day during the period from July 1, 2017 to July 31, 2017, pro-rated for the period of ownership. The dividend will accrue daily and be paid no later than August 31, 2017.
As previously disclosed, our board of directors has approved and submitted to our stockholders for their approval a proposal (the "Proposal") to amend our charter to restructure our share classes as part of a broader restructuring (the "Proposed Restructuring"). For more information about the Proposal and the Proposed Restructuring, please refer to the definitive proxy statement for the 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 6, 2017 and is also available on our website at www.dividendcapitaldiversified.com.
If the Proposal is approved by the stockholders on July 26, 2017, the Company expects that the board of directors will formally approve and implement the Proposed Restructuring effective as of August 1, 2017. We expect that on or about August 1, 2017, we will, among other things, implement our new distribution reinvestment plan. We currently expect that commencing in August, monthly distributions will accrue on single record dates and be paid monthly. We expect to declare dividends for the months of August and September on or about July 31, 2017. However, there can be no assurances that the stockholders will approve the proposed charter amendment on July 26, 2017, or at all, and if approved, the implementation of the Proposed Restructuring may be delayed or may not be approved by our board of directors at all.
On March 22, 2017, DPF's Board of Directors authorized for each class of common stock a dividend of $0.09 per share, subject to adjustment for class-specific expenses, for the quarter ending June 30, 2017. The dividend will be paid according to the table below on July 17, 2017 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on each day during the period from April 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017, pro-rated for the period of ownership.
