During this time, we became a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange in 1994, and we continued to grow in all areas of our business.

In addition, we have:

    • 535 consecutive monthly dividend payments
    • 69 consecutive quarterly increases

We've accomplished this by being singularly dedicated to our mission of paying monthly cash dividends and employing a consistent business plan that supports our mission.
