EDISON, NJ-On Tuesday, the board of directors of Mack-Cali Realty Corp. announced the payment of both common and preferred stock dividends for the first quarter. The cash dividend of 45 cents per common share represents an annualized figure of $1.80 per share, down from the previous rate of $2.56.

In a statement, the company said that with the revised yearly dividend, it expects to “enhance its balance sheet by retaining additional cash of approximately $60 million on an annualized basis.” Holders of preferred stock will receive 50 cents per share.

Common and preferred dividends are to be paid on April 13 and April 15, respectively.Headquartered here, Mack-Cali’s portfolio contains 293 buildings, mostly office properties in the Northeast, spanning roughly 33.5 million square feet.

In terms of leasing, the company had a rather busy first quarter.
