Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. Announces Second Quarter of 2020 Financial and Operating Results
Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (NYSE: SRC) ("Spirit" or the "Company"), a net-lease real estate investment trust ("REIT") that invests in single-tenant, operationally essential real estate, today reported its financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.
SECOND QUARTER 2020 HIGHLIGHTS
"The second quarter presented an extraordinary challenge for our team, and I am proud of how they performed. We have worked through the vast majority of all outstanding rent deferral requests and are actively engaged in resolving the few remaining requests, providing a path to return to more normal rent collections. Our balance sheet has been strengthened through strategic debt and equity raises, providing liquidity to be opportunistic and on the offensive. Most notably, we took the lead in providing timely and granular disclosure about our rent collections and portfolio health to provide investors the insight they needed during a turbulent time. As I have said before, the Spirit team has been battle tested and I believe we proved that once again," stated Jackson Hsieh, President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.625 per share of common stock, representing an annualized rate of $2.50 per share.
