Orchid Island Capital Announces One-for-five Reverse Stock Split, August 2022 Monthly Dividend and July 31, 2022 RMBS Portfolio Characteristics

  •  One-for-five reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of Common Stock
  • August 2022 Monthly Dividend of $0.16 Per Share of Common Stock
  • RMBS Portfolio Characteristics as of July 31, 2022
  • Next Dividend Announcement Expected September 12, 2022

Orchid Island Capital, Inc. (the "Company") ORC announced today that the Board of Directors of the Company (the "Board") approved a reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the "Common Stock"), at a ratio of one-for-five (the "Reverse Stock Split"). The Reverse Stock Split is scheduled to take effect at approximately 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 30, 2022 (the "Effective Time"). At the Effective Time, every five issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock will be converted into one share of Common Stock, with a proportionate reduction in the Company's authorized shares of Common Stock and preferred stock. The par value of each share of Common Stock will remain unchanged. The shares are expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis at market open on August 31, 2022. Trading in the Common Stock will continue on the NYSE under the symbol "ORC" but the security will be assigned a new CUSIP number.

No fractional shares will be issued in connection with the Reverse Stock Split. Instead, each stockholder that otherwise would receive fractional shares will be entitled to receive, in lieu of such fractional shares, cash in an amount determined on the basis of the closing price of the Common Stock on the NYSE on August 30, 2022. The Reverse Stock Split will apply to all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock as of the Effective Time. Stockholders of record will be receiving information from Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company's transfer agent, regarding their stock ownership following the Reverse Stock Split and cash in lieu of fractional share payments, if applicable. Stockholders who hold their shares in brokerage accounts or in "street name" are not required to take any action in connection with the Reverse Stock Split.

The Company also announced today that the Board declared a monthly cash dividend for the month of August 2022 (the "August Dividend"). The dividend of $0.16 per share will be paid September 28, 2022, to holders of record of Common Stock on August 31, 2022 (the "Record Date"), with an ex-dividend date of August 30, 2022. Because the Record Date for the August Dividend is after the Effective Time of the Reverse Stock Split, the August Dividend will reflect the Reverse Stock Split and will be paid on a split-adjusted basis. The August Dividend equates to a dividend of $0.032 per share of Common Stock on a pre-split basis. The Company plans on announcing its next common stock dividend on September 12, 2022.

The Company estimates book value per share as of August 16, 2022 to be approximately $3.10 to $3.12 per share without giving effect to the Reverse Stock Split, an increase of approximately 8.0% to 8.7% from the book value per share at June 30, 2022 of $2.87. The estimated book value per share includes a deduction for the Company's July 2022 dividend of $0.045 per share of Common Stock that will be paid on August 28, 2022, which was declared on July 13, 2022 with a July 29, 2022 record date.

The estimated book value per share range is unaudited and has not been verified or reviewed by any third party. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise its estimated book value per share.

The Company intends to make regular monthly cash distributions to its holders of common stock. In order to qualify as a real estate investment trust ("REIT"), the Company must distribute annually to its stockholders an amount at least equal to 90% of its REIT taxable income, determined without regard to the deduction for dividends paid and excluding any net capital gain. The Company will be subject to income tax on taxable income that is not distributed and to an excise tax to the extent that a certain percentage of its taxable income is not distributed by specified dates. The Company has not established a minimum distribution payment level and is not assured of its ability to make distributions to stockholders in the future.

As of August 17, 2022, July 31, 2022 and June 30, 2022, the Company had 176,251,193 shares of common stock outstanding.
