America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. Announces Regular Quarterly Cash Distribution and Supplemental BUCs Distribution

OMAHA, Neb., Sept. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On September 14, 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 distribution to the Partnership’s Beneficial Unit Certificate (“BUC”) holders of $0.57 per BUC. The distribution consists of a regular quarterly cash distribution of $0.37 per BUC plus a supplemental distribution payable in the form of additional BUCs equal in value to $0.20 per BUC. The supplemental distribution will be paid at a ratio of 0.01044 BUCs for each issued and outstanding BUC as of the record date, which represents an amount per BUC based on the closing price of the BUCs on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC on September 13, 2022 of $19.15 per BUC. No fractional BUCs will be issued in connection with the supplemental distribution, as all fractional BUCs resulting from the distribution with a fraction equal to or above 0.5 will be rounded up to the next higher BUC, and fractional BUCs with a fraction less than 0.5 will receive cash for such fraction based on the market value of the BUCs on the record date. The Partnership expects to issue an aggregate of approximately 230,500 BUCs in the supplemental distribution.

The cash distribution and supplemental distribution will be paid on October 31, 2022 to all BUC holders of record as of the close of trading on September 30, 2022. The BUCs will trade ex-distribution as of September 29, 2022.

The supplemental distribution reflects the Partnership’s continuing intent to distribute a portion of the Partnership’s recent gains on the sale of its Vantage investments. The payment of the supplemental distribution in the form of BUCs allows ATAX to retain additional capital to fund future investment opportunities at a low cost and is non-dilutive to current BUC holders.

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 a supplemental distribution, in addition to the regular quarterly distribution, for the fourth quarter of 2022.

“The Board’s declaration of the ongoing regular quarterly distribution plus a supplemental distribution demonstrates its objective of distributing earnings to our unitholders,” said Kenneth C. Rogozinski, Chief Executive Officer of ATAX. “The payment of the supplemental distribution in the form of additional BUCs will allow BUC holders to benefit from ATAX’s deployment of the retained capital into accretive investments in a cost efficient, non-dilutive manner.”

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.
