Patrick J. Callan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of One Liberty, stated, "The closings of these transactions further exemplifies the continued execution of our strategy to selectively identify and add valuable assets to our portfolio. With approximately $101.3 million of successful acquisitions since the beginning of 2013, One Liberty is building on the initiatives we implemented to drive rental income, cash flow and to increase stockholder value in the years to come."
One Liberty completed the previously announced $39.2 million acquisition of an approximately 700,000 square foot industrial facility located in Fort Mill, South Carolina and leased through April 2029 to Northern Tool & Equipment Company, Inc. and affiliates. This facility serves as a principal distribution center for the tenants' products, which includes industrial grade and personal use power tools and equipment. The purchase price includes approximately $27.3 million of mortgage debt with an annual interest rate of 4.875% and maturing in April 2029.
The Company closed on an approximately 125,600 square foot distribution facility located in Indianapolis, Indiana for approximately $9.27 million. The property is leased by Federal Express Corporation for a term which expires in February 2023.
The Company completed the acquisitions of two restaurants for $2.98 million and $2.64 million, respectively. One property is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan with a lease that expires in March 2027. The other property is located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with a lease that expires in December 2032.
One Liberty estimates that the rental income (including the impact of straight-line rent adjustments) in 2014 from these four properties will be approximately $4.08 million.
In connection with the completion of certain of these acquisitions, the Company borrowed $23.5 million from its credit facility, which represents the current balance outstanding under its $75 million facility.
