According to a press release issued by ARCP, the sale-leaseback of approximately 500 Red Lobster locations was completed at a 7.9% cash cap rate or a 9.9% cap rate under generally accepted accounting principles. The portfolio has a weighted average lease term of roughly 25 years and 2% annual compounded rent escalations.
