New York REIT, Inc. Clarifies Ex-Dividend Date For Cash Liquidating Distribution (11/14/17)

NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- New York REIT, Inc. (NYSE: NYRT) (the "Company" or "NYRT"), which is liquidating and winding down pursuant to a plan of liquidation, today clarified the date on which the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Shares"), will trade ex-dividend of the previously announced cash liquidating distribution of $2.07 per share. As previously announced, the cash liquidating distribution will be payable on November 28, 2017 to shareholders of record on November 20, 2017.

Investors should note that the ex-dividend date is set by the NYSE. Under the rules of the NYSE, when a distribution is declared in a per share amount that exceeds 25% of a company's stock price, the date on which that company's shares will begin to trade without the dividend, or ex-dividend, is the first business day following the payment date. Accordingly, the NYSE has informed the Company that it has set an ex-dividend date for the cash liquidating distribution of November 29, 2017. Consequently, if a shareholder as of the record date sells shares at any time prior to the ex-dividend date of November 29, 2017, they will not receive the cash liquidating distribution.
