On February 1, 2019, the board of directors (the Board) of NorthStar Healthcare determined to suspend the monthly distribution payments to stockholders, effective immediately.

The Board believes it is prudent to preserve capital and protect NorthStar Healthcare’s financial position by suspending distributions at this time.

For the year ended December 31, 2018 and month ended January 31, 2019, NorthStar Healthcare paid an annualized distribution amount of $0.3375 per share of its common stock.
