Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC Announces Record Date and Estimated Range for Dividend on Class A Shares


NEW YORK, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Och-Ziff Capital Management Group LLC (the "Company") (NYSE: OZM) announced that its Board of Directors declared a December 31, 2007 record date for its fourth-quarter 2007 dividend. The Company estimates that the dividend will be between $1.05 and $1.20 per Class A share. The Company anticipates that the dividend will be determined and paid during the first quarter of 2008 to holders of record of Class A Shares on December 31, 2007.

The estimated dividend is based on the Company's actual results through October 31, 2007 and management's estimate of expected results through December 31, 2007. Since the Company recognizes substantially all of its incentive income on the last day of the fiscal year and this amount is based on the Company's performance for the entire fiscal year, the Company's actual dividend may vary from the estimate and this variance could be material. The Company does not intend to update or revise this dividend estimate, and the actual amount of the dividend and the payment date will be announced when all relevant information is available during the first quarter of 2008.
