  • Executed 10 new and extended leases with overall portfolio occupancy of 97.4%.

T. Wilson Eglin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lexington, stated, "Our operating results continue to be strong in all areas of our business. We have maintained high levels of occupancy, capitalized on opportunities to lower our cost of capital and added long-term net leases to our portfolio. Over the balance of the year, we expect to take advantage of opportunities to extend our debt maturities while interest rates are at attractive levels, add long-term net leases to our portfolio in order to extend our weighted-average lease term and make substantial progress addressing our 2014-2015 lease rollovers. We believe these steps will result in greater cash flow from a higher quality portfolio."
