ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Broadstone Net Lease, Inc. (BNL) announced today that it has completed its initial assessment of the impact of Hurricane and Tropical Storm Irma on the 50 properties BNL owns that are located in Florida and the areas of Georgia impacted by the storm. As of June 30, 2017, these properties represent approximately $13.5 million, or 8.5%, of BNL’s contractual rental revenue over the next twelve months and approximately 1.0 million, or 7.4%, of BNL’s rentable square feet of operational space. BNL’s portfolio management team has been in communication with all of BNL’s tenants in the affected areas, and reports indicate that BNL’s properties sustained no or minimal damage as a result of the hurricane. In the coming weeks, BNL’s portfolio management team will be conducting site visits to all of the properties in Florida and the areas of Georgia impacted by Hurricane Irma to develop a complete understanding of any potential impacts from the storm. We will provide additional information or updates in the event of a material change from these initial reports.
“We are grateful that our friends, tenants, family, and co-workers in Florida, Georgia, and Texas are safe and that our properties in the affected areas only sustained minimal damage,” stated Chris Czarnecki, Chief Executive Officer of BNL. “Our portfolio management team and their partners at our tenants performed exceptionally well under challenging circumstances. Our thoughts continue to be with all of the people and communities impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.”
