Tampa, FL – December 8th, 2020 – Generation Income Properties, Inc. (OTCQB: GIPR) (“GIP” or the “Company”) announced the closing on the previously disclosed intent to acquire a 2,500-square-foot, single tenant Sherwin Williams building in Tampa, Florida. As previously announced, the transaction was structured as a contribution to GIP’s operating partnership, Generation Income Properties LP, for total consideration of approximately $1.78 million.
GIP funded the transaction with approximately $1.29 million of debt from Valley National Bank and the issuance of 24,309 partnership units in Generation Income Properties LP valued at $20.00 per unit for purposes of the contribution. Sherwin Williams has a credit rating of BBB from Standard & Poor’s with approximately 7.5 years remaining on the lease term for the property.
Rick Russell, Chief Financial Officer of GIP, noted, “This transaction reflects the continued interest in the UPREIT structure as a vehicle for property owners to dispose of their assets and has allowed GIP to continue to grow its portfolio with assets occupied by strong tenants in top-tier markets”.
Valley National Bank held the current debt on the property at the time of acquisition and enabled GIP to assume and amend the current debt terms to generate a more favorable return for the company.
Kyle Bellini, Relationship Manager for Valley National Bank commented “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a great customer. The sponsorship, location, and credit quality of the deal are second to none! We will strive to add value to many more opportunities for this group down the road.”
