Gramercy to resume preferred dividends in Q4; targets 2014 for common payout

Following last week's $47.4M private placement of common shares (expected to close today), Gramercy Property Trust (GPT) announces its intention to resume payments on its preferred stock beginning with the dividend due in Q4.

The company has identified a $130M pipeline of investment opportunities, and says the capital raise will help with executing these acquisitions, and allowing dividend-paying ability in 2014

A conference call and presentation is scheduled for 4:30 ET.

Friday evening: Gramercy raises $47.4M.

    I think this is what Demuth has been saying all along (other than common dividend in 2014 vs late 2013)....I'd say he got it pretty well right.

    Cohen and Steers are the top tier investor in REIT space, best investor you can get. When common div resumes, they will buy heavy.
