Fortress Investment Group shareholders can be forgiven for wondering if they’ll ever receive a dividend again.
The New York-based alternative investments giant said yesterday that it would not pay a third-quarter dividend. It is the ninth consecutive quarter that Fortress has chosen to withhold a dividend; the firm hasn’t paid one since the second quarter of 2008.
Fortress said it would retain capital for potential future investment opportunities and working capital purposes.
The $41.7 billion firm had $167.5 million in cash at the end of the second quarter.
Fortress shares are down about 20% this year.
