T.

As a result, the weighted-average lease term of our portfolio is 7.7 years, an increase of 18% compared to June 30, 2012, with approximately 30% of our revenue coming from leases ten years or longer, providing the Company with a more stable base of long-term cash flow. In addition, we continued to lower our cost of capital with the completion of our first investment-grade rated notes offering, utilizing the proceeds primarily to retire expensive short-term secured debt."
