The following table presents information with respect to dividends on shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Class A common stock”), and Class B common stock, par value $0.01 per share (“Class B common stock”), of Arlington Asset Investment Corp. (the “Company”). If declared, shares of Class A common stock and Class B common stock receive dividends in the same amounts and on the same dates.
The tax characterization to shareholders of the distribution will be determined after the end of the calendar year and will be reported to shareholders on Form 1099-DIV. To the extent the Company has current or accumulated earnings and profits for the year, distributions would be reported as dividends. Because the Company is taxed as a C-corporation for U.S. federal tax purposes, any dividends would be qualified dividends eligible for the reduced capital gains rates. Any distributions in excess of earnings and profits for the year would be classified as nontaxable returns of capital to the extent they do not exceed a shareholder’s adjusted tax basis in the Company’s stock, or as a capital gain to the extent that the amount of the distribution exceeds a shareholder’s adjusted tax basis in the Company’s stock.
