ARMOUR previously announced that the Company will move to a quarterly dividend on its common stock for the second quarter of 2020. The Company expects to announce its decision regarding the amount of second quarter dividends on common stock in the latter part of June 2020 as well as whether the Company will return to its prior monthly dividend policy.

Dividends paid in excess of current tax earnings and profits for the year will generally not be taxable to common stockholders.
