Physicians Realty Trust (NYSE:DOC) (the “Company”) announced today that the Company’s Board of Trustees has authorized and the Company has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.225 per common share for the quarter ending September 30, 2014.
Governor Tommy G. Thompson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, stated, “We continue to successfully execute our business plan to grow our portfolio of high quality medical office buildings as well as our pipeline of acquisition opportunities. In addition, we have a strong and predictable revenue stream in place, driven by high occupancy levels and solid cap rates. This has enabled the Company to declare our fifth consecutive dividend payment of $0.225 per share. We are continuing to work hard to execute our growth strategy and with our recent upsized public offering and a new unsecured revolving credit facility in place, we are well positioned to do so.”
The dividend will be payable on October 30, 2014, to common shareholders of record on October 17, 2014.
