Jay Whitehurst, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “2019 is off to a steady, consistent start for National Retail Properties, with occupancy remaining above our long-term average and our new acquisitions being driven by our relationship tenants at strong initial cash yields, with future rent growth, and with long-term triple net leases.  Coupled with our low leveraged, flexible balance sheet, we remain well positioned to continue our consistent per share growth on a multi-year basis.”
