Portfolio Update

As of November 7, 2018, the Company owned ten properties located in Arizona, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York and Pennsylvania, totaling approximately 952,000 rentable square feet (including approximately 114,000 rentable square feet under development), which were 100% leased with a weighted-average remaining lease term of approximately 14.7 years. As of November 7, 2018, the Company had invested approximately $121.5 million in the aggregate (excluding transaction costs) and had committed an additional approximately $15.9 million to reimburse certain tenants and sellers for completion of construction and tenant improvements at the Company’s properties. The Company’s average current yield on invested capital is approximately 15.4% for these ten properties, calculated as (a) the sum of the current base rents, supplemental rent (with respect to the lease with PharmaCann LLC at one of the Company’s New York properties) and property management fees (after the expiration of the base rent abatement period for the PharmaCann Massachusetts property), divided by (b) the Company’s aggregate investment in these properties (excluding transaction costs and including aggregate potential development funding and tenant reimbursements of approximately $15.9 million).

Acquisition Activity

On July 12, 2018, the Company acquired a property in Massachusetts for $12.75 million (excluding transaction costs) in a sale-leaseback transaction, and entered into a triple-net lease for the entire property with Holistic for continued operation as a cannabis cultivation and processing facility comprising approximately 55,000 square feet of industrial space.

On August 2, 2018, the Company acquired a property in Michigan under development and expected to comprise approximately 56,000 square feet of industrial space upon completion. The initial purchase price for the property was approximately $5.5 million, and the seller is responsible for completing certain development milestones, for which the seller is expected to be reimbursed approximately $5.3 million (the “Additional Purchase Price”). GPI, the tenant at the property, is also expected to complete tenant improvements for the building, for which the Company has agreed to provide reimbursement of up to $2.2 million (the “TI Allowance”). Assuming full payment for each step of the development, the Company’s total investment in the property will be $13 million. Concurrent with the closing of the purchase, the Company entered into a long-term, triple-net lease agreement with GPI, which intends to use the facility for medical-use cannabis cultivation and processing upon completion of development.

On October 30, 2018, the Company acquired an approximately 58,000 square foot industrial property in Colorado for $11.25 million (excluding transaction costs) and entered into a long-term, triple-net lease with TGS for continued operation as a cannabis cultivation facility.
