Published

WESTPORT, Conn., April 04, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compass Diversified (NYSE: CODI) (“CODI” or the “Company”), an owner of leading middle market businesses, announced today that its Board of Directors (the “Board”) has declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.25 per share on the Company’s common shares (the “Common Shares”). The distribution for the three months ended March 31, 2024, is payable on April 25, 2024, to all holders of record of Common Shares as of April 18, 2024.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.453125 per share on the Company’s 7.250% Series A Preferred Shares (the “Series A Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series A Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2024, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2024. The distribution for such period is payable on April 30, 2024, to all holders of record of Series A Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2024.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series B Preferred Shares (the “Series B Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series B Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2024, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2024. The distribution for such period is payable on April 30, 2024, to all holders of record of Series B Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2024.

The Board also declared a quarterly cash distribution of $0.4921875 per share on the Company’s 7.875% Series C Preferred Shares (the “Series C Preferred Shares”). The distribution on the Series C Preferred Shares covers the period from, and including, January 30, 2024, up to, but excluding, April 30, 2024. The distribution for such period is payable on April 30, 2024, to all holders of record of Series C Preferred Shares as of April 15, 2024.

CODI’s common and preferred cash distributions should generally constitute “qualified dividends” for U.S. federal income tax purposes to the extent they are paid from “earnings and profits” (as determined under U.S. federal income tax principles), provided that the requisite holding period is met. To the extent that the amount of the cash distributions exceeds earnings and profits, such distribution will first be treated as a non-taxable return of capital to the extent of the holder’s adjusted tax basis in the shares, and thereafter be treated as a capital gain from the sale or exchange of such shares.

CODI anticipates, but is not certain, that all 2024 distributions will be treated as qualified dividends, provided that the requisite holding periods are met. The final tax status of such amounts will be made and reported to shareholders in early 2025, when the determination of earnings and profits for the 2024 year is completed. The final tax status of the 2024 distributions may differ from this preliminary expectation.
