Full Year 2012 Highlights
In commenting on the Company's results, Garland S. Tucker, III, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "The fourth quarter of 2012 was the capstone of another great operational and financial year for Triangle. We were very active from an investing and a capital markets standpoint during the quarter as we broadened our investment portfolio and further strengthened our balance sheet with our $80.5 million 6.375% ten year bond offering. The strength and performance of our investment portfolio during the year provided us the opportunity to increase our dividend four times over the last five quarters, to a current dividend of $0.54 per share."
