On June 11, 2024, Great Ajax entered into a management agreement with Rithm Capital (Rithm) to serve as its external manager. Rithm anticipates transitioning the investment portfolio to a commercial real estate investment strategy that will seek attractive risk-adjusted returns for shareholders.

Great Ajax Corp is an externally managed real estate investment trust (REIT) that acquires, invests and manages a portfolio of mortgage loans secured by single-family residences and single-family properties. We also invest in loans secured by multi-family residential and commercial mixed-use retail/residential properties. In addition, we hold real estate owned (REO) properties acquired upon the foreclosure, other settlement of our owned non-performing loans, or that we acquire in the market. These are principally single-family homes, although we also own smaller commercial properties. We opportunistically determine whether to sell any REO asset, sometimes offering mortgage financing to the purchaser, or to hold the REO as a rental property. We believe that our tailored approach to each asset we acquire will generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our stockholders over the long term through dividends and capital appreciation.

We were incorporated in Maryland on January 30, 2014. We conduct substantially all of our business through our operating partnership, Great Ajax Operating Partnership LP, a wholly owned Delaware limited partnership, and its subsidiaries. We are the sole general partner of the operating partnership. We elect to be taxed as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, beginning with our taxable year ending December 31, 2014. Our qualification as a REIT will depend upon our ability to meet, on a continuing basis, various complex requirements under the Internal Revenue Code relating to, among other things, the sources of our gross income, the composition and values of our assets, our distribution levels and the diversity of ownership of our capital stock.
