Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. is the pioneering real estate investment trust for the medical-use cannabis industry. Founded in December, 2016, we are the first publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IIPR) to provide real estate capital to the medical-use cannabis industry.
A real estate investment trust (REIT) is a corporation that combines the capital of many investors to acquire income producing real estate. As a public company traded on the NYSE, we are uniquely positioned in the industry to access public capital markets. As a REIT, one of our most attractive attributes is that we must distribute through a dividend to our stockholders at least 90 percent of our taxable income. Innovative Industrial Properties has paid consecutive quarterly dividends to our common stockholders since the second quarter of 2017.
