15 retail properties for around $42.1 million

Agree Realty Corporation has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of 15 retail properties for around $42.1 million. These deals added stores of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. (BBBY – Analyst Report), Old Navy and Dress Barn for the first time to the company’s portfolio, besides the first Wendy’s restaurants.

The acquisition of these net leased properties gives rise to much diversification in Agree Realty’s portfolio base, bringing in 12 diverse tenants from 9 different retail sectors. Positioned across 10 states, these properties enjoy a weighted-average lease term of approximately 11 years, making them a strategic buy for the company. They are net leased to retailers like Sherwin Williams (SHW- Analyst Report), Family Dollar Stores Inc. (FDO – Analyst Report), Academy Sports + Outdoors and Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts.

As a matter of fact, the retail real estate landlords are having a tough time amid a rising use of e-commerce in the retail sector. Online shopping has been gaining much momentum among consumers as it is more convenient and at times cheaper compared to shopping from physical stores.

Considering these factors, Agree Realty is targeting investments in assets that are leased to e-commerce resistant sectors. The company is focusing on net leasing of properties to the leading retailers in this sector, thereby ensuring steady rental revenue from such properties.

The company has, in fact, aimed for an acquisition volume of $175–$200 million in 2015. With these acquisitions, we believe, the company would be able to leverage the improving market fundamentals and ride on the growth trajectory. But issues surrounding interest rates may hurt its growth momentum to some extent.
