(NYSE American: CTO) (the “Company” or “CTO”) today announced its operating results and earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Select Highlights * Reported a Net Loss of ($0.33) per share for the three months ended September 30, 2020, including a non-cash, unrealized after-tax loss on the mark-to-market of the Company’s ownership of 2,039,644 shares of Alpine Income Property Trust, Inc. (“PINE”) of ($0.23) per share, after tax. * During the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company collected 91% of the Contractual Base Rent (as defined below) due during such period. * During the third quarter of 2020, the joint venture entity that currently holds approximately 1,700 acres of undeveloped land in Daytona Beach, Florida (the “Land JV”) sold approximately 3,300 acres for $46.0 million. * During the third quarter of 2020, acquired two income properties for an aggregate purchase price of $47.9 million, reflecting a going-in weighted-average cap rate of 7.7%. * During the third quarter of 2020, sold three income properties for 12.2 million, representing a weighted-average exit cap rate of 5.5%. * Paid a regular cash dividend for the third quarter of 2020 of $0.40 per share on August 31, 2020 to shareholders of record as of August 17, 2020. * As of October 28, 2020, the Company has collected approximately 93% of the Contractual Base Rent (as defined below) due in October 2020. * Declared a regular cash dividend for the fourth quarter of 2020 of $1.00 per share, representing a 150% increase to the Company’s previous regular quarterly cash dividend and an annualized yield of approximately 9.5% based on the closing price of CTO common stock on October 27, 2020. * The Company will hold a special meeting of shareholders on Monday, November 9, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET for a vote in connection with the Company’s recently announced real estate investment trust (“REIT”) conversion for the shareholders of record on October 13, 2020. The Company plans to make a one-time special distribution to the Company’s shareholders to ensure it has distributed all of its previously undistributed earnings and profits attributable to the taxable periods ended on or prior to December 31, 2019 (the “Special Distribution”). The current aggregate amount of the Special Distribution is anticipated to be between $52 million and $56 million, of which the cash portion will in no event be less than 10% of the aggregate amount. CEO Comments“We had a very active quarter as we executed on the sale of approximately two-thirds of the remaining land in our land joint venture, recycled out of three non-core assets, and reinvested the proceeds into two high-quality additions to our income property portfolio,” noted John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTO Realty Growth. “We believe the evolution to a diversified investment strategy focused on risk-adjusted returns will provide the Company and our investors an opportunity to capitalize on value in what is a highly dynamic market. As we look towards a potential REIT conversion, these transaction activities and the associated increase to our guidance, combined with the 150% increase in our fourth quarter dividend and the prospects of a meaningful special dividend, continue to position the Company towards a best-in-class, diversified real estate investment company.”Quarterly Financial Results HighlightsThe tables below provide a summary of the Company’s operating results for the three months ended September 30, 2020: For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2019 Variance

by the Company’s recent income property acquisitions versus that of properties disposed of by the Company during the comparative period and revenue from management fee income, the majority of which was from the external management of PINE that did not commence until late in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Three Months Ended September 30,

2020 REIT conversion. For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2019 Variance to Comparable Period in the Prior Year (in thousands, except for per share

and Paid, per share$0.40  $0.11 $0.29 263.6% The net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was primarily due to the decrease in the closing stock price of PINE resulting in a non-cash, unrealized loss on the mark-to-market of the Company’s investment in PINE of ($1.4) million and a decrease of ($1.9) million from the year-over-year difference in gains on disposition of income producing properties.Year-to-Date Financial Results HighlightsThe tables below provide a summary of the Company’s operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2020: For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 Variance to Comparable Period in the Prior Year (in thousands)                       Income Properties$35,409 $31,361 $4,048 12.9%

Revenues$40,420 $32,978 $7,442  22.6% The increase in total revenue period-over-period was primarily attributable to income produced by the Company’s recent income property acquisitions versus that of properties disposed of by the Company during the comparative period, income from commercial loan investments that were originated subsequent to the second quarter of 2019, and revenue from management fee income, the majority of which was from the external management of PINE, which did not commence until late in the fourth quarter of 2019. For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Nine

with the Company’s anticipated 2020 REIT conversion and increased audit, tax and legal fees, primarily attributable to the Company’s Land JV and the asset portfolio sale to PINE, for which fees were incurred primarily during the first quarter of 2020. For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2020 For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 Variance to Comparable Period in the Prior Year (in

decrease in the closing stock price of PINE resulting in a non-cash, unrealized loss on the mark-to-market of the Company’s investment in PINE of ($7.1) million, a decrease of ($13.1) million from the year-over-year difference in gains on disposition of income producing properties, and aggregate losses of ($2.1) million related to the Company’s commercial loan portfolio that included impairment charges recognized in the first quarter of 2020 related to the Company’s disposition of four of its commercial loan investments.COVID-19 Pandemic and Rent Collection UpdateIn March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus as a pandemic (the “COVID-19 Pandemic”), which has spread throughout the United States. The spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic has continued to cause significant volatility in the U.S. and international markets, and in many industries, business activity has experienced periods of almost complete shutdown. There continues to be uncertainty around the duration and severity of business disruptions related to the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as its impact on the U.S. economy and international economies.Q3 2020 Rent Status: The Company collected 91% of the Contractual Base Rent due for the three months ended September 30, 2020. Contractual Base Rent (“CBR”) represents the amount owed to the Company under the terms of its lease agreements in each respective month. The Company has previously agreed to defer or abate certain CBRs in exchange for additional lease term or other lease enhancing additions. In general, the repayment of the deferred CBR began in the third quarter of 2020, with ratable payments continuing, in some cases, through the end of 2021. The Company has not yet reached an agreement with certain tenants responsible for approximately 6% of CBR due during the three months ended September 30, 2020.October 2020 Rent Status: As of October 28, 2020, the Company had received payments from tenants representing approximately 93% of the CBR due during the month of October. An assessment of the current or identifiable potential financial and operational impacts on the Company as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic are as follows: * The total borrowing capacity on the Company’s revolving credit facility is based on the assets currently in the borrowing base, as defined by the Company’s revolving credit facility agreement. Pursuant to the terms of the revolving credit facility agreement, any property in the borrowing base with a tenant that is more than 60 days past due on its contractual rent obligations would be automatically removed from the borrowing base and the Company’s borrowing capacity would be reduced. For the tenants requesting rent relief with which the Company has reached an agreement, such deferral and/or abatement agreements for current rent, under the terms of the credit facility, would not be past due if it adheres to such modification, and thus those properties would not be required to be removed from the borrowing base. The Company’s available borrowing capacity has not been limited as a result of the referenced terms of the revolving credit facility. * As a result of the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the federal government and the state of Florida issued orders encouraging everyone to remain in their residence and not go into work. In response to these orders and in the best interest of our employees and directors, we have implemented significant preventative measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and Board of Directors (the “Board”), including: (i) conducting all meetings of the Board and Committees of the Board telephonically or via a visual conferencing service, (ii) permitting the Company’s employees to work from home at their election, (iii) enforcing appropriate social distancing practices in the Company’s office, (iv) encouraging the Company’s employees to wash their hands often and use face masks, (v) providing hand sanitizer and other disinfectant products throughout the Company’s office, (vi) requiring employees who do not feel well in any capacity to stay at home, and (vii) requiring all third-party delivery services (e.g. mail, food delivery, etc.) to complete their service outside the front door of the Company’s office. The Company also offered COVID-19 testing to its employees to ensure a safe working environment. These preventative measures have not had any material adverse impact on the Company’s financial reporting systems, internal controls over financial reporting or disclosure controls and procedures. At this time, we have not laid off, furloughed, or terminated any employee in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Compensation Committee of the Board may reevaluate the performance goals and other aspects of the compensation arrangements of the Company’s executive officers later in 2020 as more information about the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic become known.Land Joint VentureDuring the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Land JV sold approximately 3,300 acres for $46.0 million. From inception through September 30, 2020, the Land JV sold approximately 3,700 acres for $68.2 million, which has resulted in distributions to the joint venture partner that reduced the partner’s capital balance to $42.3 million as of September 30, 2020.  Following these transactions, the Land JV has approximately 1,700 acres of undeveloped land, or $80 million to $110 million of potential value remaining. Following the repayment of the Land JV partner’s capital balance, the Company is scheduled to receive 90% of the additional proceeds under the terms of the Land JV agreement.The Land JV’s current pipeline related to the remaining 1,700 acres includes approximately 134 acres of potential land sales that total $16.3 million, the majority of which are expected to close in the next 90 days. The buyers of these parcels include in-state and out-of-state developers.Operational HighlightsDuring the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company engaged in the following notable operational activities related to the existing properties within its portfolio: * Commenced rebranding and repositioning efforts on its 269,000-square foot Perimeter Place retail center in Atlanta, Georgia. As part of the rebranding efforts, the Company will relaunch the property as Ashford Lane. The revitalized property will include a redesign of the existing public areas to provide more green space, a series of outreach and marketing campaigns to drive engagement and brand awareness, and a focused effort on leasing the existing vacancy with new, complimentary tenants that will deliver an improved experience for the community. Subsequent to the end of third quarter of 2020, the Company entered into the following noteworthy agreements with new or existing tenants: * Entered into a new lease with a food hall operator to occupy approximately 17,000 square feet at Ashford Lane. * Entered into an amendment with an existing beachfront restaurant tenant to expand their existing operations onto an adjacent piece of land currently owned by the Company.    AcquisitionsDuring the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company acquired the following two properties for total acquisition volume of approximately $47.9 million, reflecting a weighted-average going-in cap rate of approximately 7.7% and a weighted-average remaining lease term of approximately 13.2 years. * On August 21, 2020, the Company acquired an approximately 120,000 square foot single tenant office property in Tampa, Florida. The property is occupied exclusively by Ford Motor Credit Company LLC through a lease that was recently extended through March 2026. * On September 25, 2020, the Company acquired an approximately 108,000 square foot retail property situated on approximately eight acres in Hialeah, Florida.

The sale of the properties generated a gain of approximately $0.3 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.During the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company sold eight properties for total disposition volume of approximately $51.6 million, reflecting a weighted-average exit cap rate of approximately 4.6%.On October 13, 2020, the Company completed the sale of the property located in Arlington, Texas, formerly leased to Macaroni Grill, for a sale price of $2.5 million. The gain on the sale was approximately $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, after tax, of which proceeds are expected to be a part of a 1031 like-kind exchange transaction.Also on October 13, 2020, the Company completed the sale of a vacant land parcel located adjacent to the property in Dallas, Texas, leased to 7-Eleven, which was sold in June 2020. The sales price on the vacant land parcel was $0.5 million and the gain on the sale was approximately $0.1 million, or $0.01 per share, after tax. In conjunction with the sale, the Company executed a promissory note with the buyer at a principal loan amount of $0.4 million, which bears interest at a fixed rate of 7.50% and an initial term of 2.5 years from the date of disposition.Income Property PortfolioThe Company’s income property portfolio consisted of the following as of September 30, 2020:(square feet in thousands) Property Type  of Properties Square Feet Weighted-Average Remaining on Lease Term Single-Tenant (1) 24 1,435 13.6 Multi-Tenant 6 1,015 5.7 Total / Weighted-Average Lease Term 30 2,450 9.9         % of Contractual Base Rent attributable to Retail Tenants67%   % of Contractual Base Rent attributable to Office Tenants31%   % of Contractual Base Rent attributable to Hotel Ground Lease2%   (1)The twenty-four single-tenant properties include (i) a property leased to The Carpenter Hotel which is under a long-term ground lease and includes two tenant-repurchase options and (ii) a property in Hialeah leased to a master tenant which includes three tenant-repurchase options.

    CTO Realty Growth Increases Quarterly Dividend by 150%, Declares Dividend for the Fourth Quarter 2020

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CTO Realty Growth, Inc. (NYSE American: CTO) (the “Company” or “CTO”) announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized, and the Company has declared, an increase in the Company’s quarterly cash dividend to $1.00 per share of common stock for the fourth quarter of 2020 from its previous quarterly cash dividend of $0.40 per share of common stock. The dividend is payable on November 30, 2020 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on November 16, 2020. The 2020 fourth quarter cash dividend represents a 150% increase over the Company’s previous quarterly dividend and an annualized yield of approximately 9.5% based on the closing price of the common stock on October 27, 2020. “This is the 44th consecutive year CTO has paid a cash dividend to its shareholders and this most recent increase of 150% reflects the continued strength and growth of our Company," said John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTO Realty Growth.”The Company also announced that it has adopted a Dividend Reinvestment and Direct Stock Purchase Plan (the "Plan"). The Plan has two components: a dividend reinvestment component and a direct stock purchase component. The dividend reinvestment component allows the Company's shareholders to designate all or a portion of the cash dividends on their shares of common stock for reinvestment in additional shares of common stock. The direct stock purchase component allows shareholders and new investors to purchase shares of common stock directly from the Company.The Plan will be administered through the Company's transfer agent, Computershare, N.A. ("Computershare"). Computershare will purchase shares for the Plan either in the open market or directly from the Company as newly issued shares of common stock, as described in the Plan. Shareholders and other persons may obtain a copy of the Plan prospectus and enrollment applications by contacting Computershare at 1-800-368-5948 or visiting Computershare’s website at www.computershare.com/investor. All shareholders and new investors considering enrollment in the Plan should carefully review the terms of the Plan and consult with their advisors as to the implications of enrollment in the Plan.About CTO Realty Growth, Inc.CTO Realty Growth, Inc. (NYSE American: CTO) is a Florida-based publicly traded real estate company, which owns income properties comprised of approximately 2.4 million square feet in diversified markets in the United States and an approximately 23.5% interest in Alpine Income Property Trust, Inc., a publicly traded net lease real estate investment trust (NYSE: PINE).We encourage you to review our most recent investor presentation, which is available on our website at www.ctorealtygrowth.com.SAFE HARBORAlthough forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s present expectations and reasonable beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect upon the Company, a number of factors could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Such factors may include: (1) uncertainties relating to the estimate of the amount of the Special Distribution; (2) the expected timing and likelihood of completion of the Merger; (3) the possibility that the Company’s shareholders may not approve the Merger; (4) risks related to disruption of management’s attention from ongoing business operations due to the Merger and REIT conversion; (5) the Company’s ability to remain qualified as a REIT; (6) the Company’s exposure to U.S. federal and state income tax law changes, including changes to the REIT requirements; (7) general adverse economic and real estate conditions; (8) the ultimate geographic spread, severity and duration of pandemics such as the recent outbreak of novel coronavirus, actions that may be taken by governmental authorities to contain or address the impact of such pandemics, and the potential negative impacts of such pandemics on the global economy and the Company’s financial condition and results of operations; (9) the inability of major tenants to continue paying their rent or obligations due to bankruptcy, insolvency or a general downturn in their business; (10) the completion of 1031 exchange transactions; (11) the availability of investment properties that meet the Company’s investment goals and criteria; (12) the uncertainties associated with obtaining required governmental permits and satisfying other closing conditions for planned acquisitions and sales; and (13) an epidemic or pandemic (such as the outbreak and worldwide spread of COVID-19), and the measures that international, federal, state and local governments, agencies, law enforcement and/or health authorities implement to address it, which may (as with COVID-19) precipitate or exacerbate one or more of the above-mentioned and/or other risks, and significantly disrupt or prevent us from operating our business in the ordinary course for an extended period. For additional information regarding factors that may cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the Company’s forward-looking statements, the Company refers you to the information contained under the caption “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and in the Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A dated October 19, 2020, each as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.There can be no assurance that future developments will be in accordance with management’s expectations or that the effect of future developments on the Company will be those anticipated by management.
