VERO BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 12, 2022--

Orchid Island Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: ORC) announced today that the Board of Directors of the Company declared a monthly cash dividend for the month of September 2022.

The Company plans on announcing its next common stock dividend on October 12, 2022.

The Company intends to make regular monthly cash distributions to its holders of common stock.

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.
