Tanger Outlets Commemorates The 20th Anniversary Of Its Initial Public Offering

GREENSBORO, N.C., May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Tanger Factory Outlet Centers Inc. (NYSE:SKT) – Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tanger Outlets, marks an important milestone today by ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. The bell ringing ceremony commemorates Tanger's 20 th anniversary of being listed as a publicly-traded Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT).

"This is a historic moment for Tanger Outlets and our industry," said Frank Marchisello, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Tanger Outlets.  "Going public in 1993 helped fuel our growth and success by providing Tanger the access to capital to grow from an enterprise value of $200 million to $4.7 billion. Tanger currently has 43 centers in 26 states from coast to coast and in Canada and more than 180 million annual shoppers."

Realizing that consumers would want to buy high quality, brand name merchandise at substantial savings direct from the manufacturer, Stanley K. Tanger opened the nation's first outlet center in Burlington, North Carolina, in 1981. In 1993, he made another bold move by taking the company public and creating the first factory outlet REIT to be traded on the New York Stock Exchange. 

From the beginning, Tanger Outlets common shares trading on the New York Stock Exchange was a big hit with investors. The initial public offering (IPO) of 4.1 million common shares on May 28, 1993, was priced at $22.50 per share. The IPO was quickly oversubscribed by more than 6 to 1 and closed the first day at $25.00 per share. In November of 2004, when Tanger's shares rose to $50 per share, the company announced a 2 for 1 split of its common shares. As the company's share price continued to increase, the company split the common shares on a 2 for 1 basis in January 2011.

Tanger has not only paid, but has also raised, its annual dividend rates for twenty consecutive years. Since the IPO, Tanger investors have received a cumulative return of over 1900% including dividends and price appreciation.
