MANAGEMENT COMMENTARY

“We continue to focus on maximizing current and future earnings through our four building blocks of growth: best-in-class portfolio rent escalations, revenue generating capital expenditures with existing tenants thanks to our industrial focus, development funding opportunities provided by the distressed lending environment, and a diversified acquisition pipeline,” said John Moragne, BNL's Chief Executive Officer. “Our portfolio also continues to perform well despite recent tenant credit events, we maintain a fortified and flexible balance sheet, and we remain focused on operational real estate expertise that’s critical in today’s macroeconomic environment.”
