FCPT Closes First Tranche (10 Restaurant Properties) of Washington Prime Transaction


Four Corners Property Trust (NYSE:FCPT), a real estate investment
trust engaged in the ownership of high-quality, net-leased restaurant
properties ("FCPT" or the "Company"), closed on the purchase of ten
restaurant properties today from Washington Prime Group Inc. ("WPG").
This is the first of two tranches in the forty-one property acquisition
announced in September 2017. Closing of the thirty-one remaining
properties in the second tranche is expected to be completed by the end
of the second quarter of 2018, subject to remaining due diligence and
customary closing conditions.

The purchase price for the first tranche was approximately $13.8 million
and represents a capitalization rate consistent with our investment
thresholds and past transactions. The leases have a current weighted
average remaining term of approximately 7.5 years. Four of the ten
properties are ground leases (i.e., the tenant built its own
building with ownership reverting to the landlord upon lease expiry).

The first tranche restaurant properties consist entirely of outparcels
to WPG properties and are well located within highly trafficked retail
corridors in Florida, Illinois, Iowa and Ohio. All ten properties are on
out-lots to either open air or WPG's "Tier One Enclosed" properties.
None of the ten restaurant properties or the adjacent WPG properties are
currently encumbered by property-level debt.

The ten properties represent ten different restaurant brands: Arby's,
BJ's Restaurant, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chick-Fil-A, Chili's, McDonald's,
Olive Garden, Panda Express, Red Lobster, and Starbucks. Of the ten
leases, eight are with corporate operators and two are with franchisees.

Additional detail on all properties acquired from WPG will be disclosed
upon the closing of the second tranche.
