We intend to make regular quarterly distributions to holders of our common stock. U.S. federal income tax law generally requires that a REIT distribute annually at least 90% of its REIT taxable income, without regard to the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gains, and that it pay tax at regular corporate rates to the extent that it annually distributes less than 100% of its taxable income. Our current policy is to pay quarterly distributions, which on an annual basis will equal all or substantially all of our taxable income.
According to the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, a real estate investment trust, or REIT, is a company that owns, and in most cases, operates income-producing real estate. Some REITs also engage in financing real estate. The shares of many REITs are traded on major stock exchanges.
A company that qualifies as a REIT generally is permitted to deduct dividends paid to its stockholders from its taxable income, which has the effect of reducing the amount of federal corporate level tax the REIT is required to pay. As a result, and in order to comply with certain distribution requirements applicable to REITs, most REITs distribute approximately 90 to 100 percent of their taxable income to their stockholders and, therefore, do not pay federal corporate level taxes. Most states follow this federal tax treatment and allow REITs to deduct dividends paid to their stockholders from their taxable income for state tax purposes.
Hannon Armstrong will hold a blend of energy efficiency, clean energy and other sustainable
infrastructure assets in its portfolio. For more information, please see the Investment Strategy section of our Investor Relations website.
