Gladstone Commercial Corporation is a REIT that invests in single tenant and anchored multi-tenant net leased industrial, office and, to a lesser extent, medical properties nationwide. We also invest alongside developers in build-to-suit transactions where a tenant requires a new building. We buy properties with strong tenants of all sizes and our track record of underwriting the credit of middle market businesses is unmatched. We target primary and secondary growth markets that possess favorable economic growth trends, diversified industries, growing populations, and strong employment.
Our senior management team, under the guidance of David Gladstone, has over 200 years of combined experience investing in real estate and middle market businesses. Under their guidance, we’ve built a portfolio that generates predictable and durable cash rents to fund distributions to our investors. Our goal is to pay shareholders distributions on a monthly basis and to increase shareholder wealth through sound investment and property operations practices. We have never cut our distributions to shareholders – even during the Great Recession. We have a track record of success, as exhibited by a history of strong distribution yields, consistent occupancy greater than 96.0%, and 10+ years of paying continuous monthly cash distributions.
Stable High Occupancy Portfolio
As of December 31, 2016, we own a diversified portfolio of 96 office, industrial and medical properties located in 24 states and leased to 89 tenants. We have grown the portfolio in a consistent, disciplined manner at a rate of 18% per year since our IPO in 2003. We match long-term leased properties with long-term debt to lock in the spread to create a durable, stable cash flow stream to fund monthly distributions to shareholders. Our occupancy stands at 97.9% and occupancy has never dipped below 96.0% since our IPO in 2003.
