America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. Announces 12% Increase in Quarterly Distribution and a Supplemental Distribution

OMAHA, Neb., June 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On June 15, 2022, America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (NASDAQ: ATAX) (the “Partnership” or “ATAX”) announced that the Board of Managers of Greystone AF Manager LLC (“Greystone Manager”) declared a cash distribution to the Partnership’s Beneficial Unit Certificate (“BUC”) holders of $0.57 per BUC. The distribution consists of a regular quarterly distribution of $0.37 per BUC plus a supplemental distribution of $0.20 per BUC. The distribution is payable on July 29, 2022 to BUC holders of record as of the close of trading on June 30, 2022. The BUCs will trade ex-distribution as of June 29, 2022.

The increase in the regular quarterly distribution to $0.37 per BUC represents a 12% increase from the previous quarterly distribution of $0.33 per BUC, which was declared in March 2022. The supplemental distribution of $0.20 per BUC reflects a portion of the Partnership’s recent gains on the sale of its Vantage investments. The supplemental distribution has been declared in connection, and will be paid together, with the regular quarterly distribution.

While the Board has not yet declared any distributions for subsequent quarters, the Partnership currently expects to continue to be in a position to make supplemental distributions, in addition to the regular quarterly distributions, for the remaining quarterly periods in 2022.

“The Board’s approval of a 12% increase to the regular quarterly distribution demonstrates its confidence in the execution of our strategy and the strong cash generation capability of our portfolio of investments,” said Kenneth C. Rogozinski, Chief Executive Officer of ATAX. “The meaningful supplemental distribution declared today demonstrates our commitment to returning a significant portion of our earnings from Vantage investment sales to our unitholders.”

Greystone Manager is the general partner of America First Capital Associates Limited Partnership Two, the Partnership’s general partner. Distributions to the Partnership’s BUC holders, including regular and any supplemental distributions, are determined by Greystone Manager based on a disciplined evaluation of the Partnership’s current and anticipated operating results, financial condition and other factors it deems relevant. Greystone Manager continually evaluates the factors that go into BUC holder distribution decisions, consistent with the long-term best interests of the BUC holders and the Partnership.
