Dividend Reinvestment

Dividend Reinvestment Plan and Stock Purchase Plan

The Astoria Financial Corporation Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan offers our shareholders a simple, convenient and economical way to invest in additional shares of our common stock. The Plan allows our shareholders to:

  • Automatically reinvest the cash dividends on all or a portion of their shares of Astoria Financial common stock in additional shares of our common stock, and
  • Make optional cash purchases of additional shares of our common stock.

The minimum purchase for optional cash purchases is $50.00 and the maximum limit is $10,000 per month, unless we grant a waiver of this limit.

There is no cost to a participant to invest funds through the Plan. All expenses related to an investment through the Plan, including brokerage commissions and transfer taxes, if any, are paid by us. All service charges, except for those associated with sales of shares and withdrawal from the Plan, are paid by us. In addition, all record keeping is done automatically, and a Plan participant is sent details of every transaction.
