TYPE OF REPORTING PERSON
This Amendment No. 25 on Schedule 13D (the "Schedule 13D") relating to shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share (the "Shares"), of Safehold Inc., a Maryland corporation (the "Issuer"), is being filed by iStar Inc., a Maryland corporation ("iStar"), and supplements and amends the statement on Schedule 13D originally filed with the Commission on June 27, 2017 (as amended, the "Statement").
|Item 4.||Purpose of Transaction|
On December 7, 2022, iStar paid a pro-rata special distribution of 0.07655 shares of common stock of the Issuer in respect of each outstanding share of common stock of iStar held by stockholders of record as of December 1, 2022. iStar distributed an aggregate of 6,632,473 shares of the Issuer's common stock in the special distribution and owns 33,856,587 shares of the Issuer common stock after giving effect to the special distribution.
As previously announced, the aggregate value of the special distribution is intended to approximate iStar's estimate of its undistributed real estate investment trust ("REIT") taxable income for 2022, which is primarily attributable to the gain from the sale of iStar's net lease portfolio in the first quarter of the year, offset by certain net operating loss carry forwards. As a REIT, iStar is subject to excise tax on any undistributed net capital gains.
No fractional shares of the Issuer's common stock were issued in connection with the special distribution, and instead iStar stockholders received cash in lieu of any fractional shares.
|Item 5.||Interest in Securities of the Issuer.|
|(a)||As of December 7, 2022, iStar beneficially owns 33,856,587 Shares directly, or approximately 54.3% of the outstanding Shares. Annex A sets forth the number of Shares and the aggregate percentage of the outstanding Shares beneficially owned by each of iStar's executive officers and directors.|
