It's not the full dividend previously paid but it's a start.

JERICHO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Kimco Realty Corp. (NYSE: KIM), one of North America’s largest publicly traded owners and operators of open-air, grocery-anchored shopping centers and mixed-use assets, today announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per common share, payable on September 24, 2020 to shareholders of record on September 10, 2020.


“In light of the company’s financial performance, including the improving level of rent collections, excellent liquidity position and the recent affirmation of our investment grade credit rating, this dividend declaration reflects the Board’s confidence in the strength and quality of our portfolio and its ability to provide successful last mile fulfillment opportunities for our tenants and shoppers," stated Conor Flynn, Kimco's Chief Executive Officer. “Declaring our dividend at this initial level accounts for the dividends already paid in 2020 and reflects continued focus on maintaining a strong balance sheet and financial flexibility. The Board will continue to monitor Kimco’s financial performance and intends to declare additional dividends on common shares in 2020, as needed, of at least the minimum amount required to maintain compliance with Kimco’s REIT taxable income distribution requirements. We expect to establish a more normalized and well-covered dividend level based on our adjusted funds from operations and REIT taxable income in 2021.”
