10/12/2022

Year to date lease terms include $28 million in annualized, straight-line rent and over nine years of weighted-average lease term

NEW YORK, Oct. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Net Lease, Inc. (NYSE: GNL) ("GNL" or the "Company") announced today that in the third quarter it executed one new lease, one expanded lease, and two lease extensions in its best of class global portfolio. These leases, which are for properties located in the US and UK, have a new weighted-average remaining lease term of 9.1 years, an increase of almost four years compared to the old lease term. Year-to-date, GNL has signed new, renewed or expansion leases totaling 3.6 million square feet with a weighted-average remaining lease term of 9.4 years which increases the amount of straight-line rent these tenants are required to pay by approximately $1 million based, in part, on existing exchange rates for the leases with tenants in the UK and Europe. The leases signed in 2022 are for properties the Company owns in the US, UK, France and the Netherlands and include investment-grade tenants such as the US Government, the State of Indiana, FedEx, and Whirlpool.

"We are continuing the leasing momentum we've seen in this year," said James Nelson, CEO of GNL. "The leases we signed in the third quarter have a weighted-average lease term of more than nine years and added over 100,000 occupied square feet to our portfolio. Building on the strong relationships we have established with our tenants over time, our asset management team has been very successful signing leases this year and continues to build a strong pipeline of new and renewal leases in North America and Europe."
