These properties are well-located in major MSAs and are mission critical for the corporate tenants.”

With these recent transactions, CCIT’s real estate portfolio consists of 35 wholly-owned properties located in 17 states, totaling approximately 5.6 million square feet and with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $921.1 million. The overall weighted average credit rating of the rated tenants in the portfolio is A-, and the weighted average remaining lease term is nearly 11 years. More than 63% of CCIT’s portfolio consists of tenants rated by Standard & Poor’s, and of those tenants more than 88% are rated investment grade.
