“We are pleased with FCPT’s strong performance through the first half of the year. In the second quarter, we experienced continued high rent collections, and acquired a number of quality restaurant and retail properties. We continue to maintain a conservative balance sheet and ample liquidity and obtained our second investment grade rating from Moody’s Investors Service in May which improves our cost of debt,” said CEO Bill Lenehan. “The Company is set up well to take advantage of investment opportunities in the second half of the year.”

  • During the quarter, FCPT received an inaugural Investment Grade rating from Moody’s Investors Service of Baa3, stable outlook, on its senior unsecured revolving and term loan facility. This rating, along with the BBB rating from Fitch, qualifies FCPT for lower credit spreads under its Credit Facility which will save over $1 million in annual interest expense, and benefit the company on future debt offerings.
