Broadstone Net Lease REIT Seeks Net-Lease Acquisition Opportunities

Private REIT Acquires Properties via Sale & Leaseback and UPREIT Transactions

ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Broadstone Net Lease (BNL), a private real estate investment trust (REIT) managed by Broadstone Real Estate, has completed its most active consecutive fundraising quarters in the REIT’s history, and now seeks individual and portfolio acquisition opportunities between $5 million and $100 million.  BNL acquires free-standing, single-tenant, net-leased properties in the retail, industrial and medical industries.   

“So far this year, BNL has been an active buyer, as we have closed or have under contract nearly $160 million worth of net-leased real estate,” commented Broadstone’s Chairman, CEO & President, Amy Tait.  “We currently have cash and line availability in place to complete at least $125 million of acquisitions in the near term, and continue to raise new equity on a monthly basis to fund future growth.”

In addition to Broadstone’s focus on sale & leaseback transactions, the firm’s principals have executed more than $1 billion of UPREIT transactions, historically.  UPREIT transactions provide a tax deferred exit strategy for owners of real estate who would otherwise recognize a significant taxable gain in a cash sale of a highly appreciated property with a low tax basis. By contributing the property to the operating partnership of Broadstone Net Lease‚ the contributing property owner’s historical cost basis is maintained.  This program has allowed property owners to exchange low cost-basis real estate for a diversified income stream.
