HONOLULU, Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Board of Directors of Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. (NYSE:ALEX) approved a third quarter dividend of $0.19 (nineteen cents) per share. The dividend is payable on September 5, 2019 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 12, 2019.
"This 2.5-cent per share quarterly dividend increase reflects continued strong earnings growth in our commercial real estate portfolio, fueled by the addition of several newly acquired assets, the opening of Lau Hala Shops (Oahu) and Ho'okele Shopping Center (Maui), and solid earnings growth in our 'same-store' portfolio. When combined with a 2-cent per share increase in our dividend last quarter, this represents a 31-percent increase from our first quarter dividend level," said Chris Benjamin, A&B President and Chief Executive Officer.
