The assumptions generally fall within the customary ranges for similar investment programs. The breakeven exit cap rate to fully return Investor capital (7.81%), is higher than the typical range for other single-tenant net-lease programs skewed by single-tenant net-lease retail properties (specifically retail pharmacies). There is a 45 basis point spread between the exit cap and the purchase cap allowing for cap rate expansion during the hold. The lease is guaranteed by parent whose majority stockholder is one of the world’s leading automotive equipment suppliers in three vehicle businesses: automotive seating, interiors, and clean mobility.

According to the third quarter 2018 Net Leased Market Report completed by The Boulder Group, cap rates during the quarter for single tenant net leased retail product increased by five basis points, however, were up 18 basis points from their historic low of 6.07% set during the fourth quarter of 2017. Cap rates in the net leased office sector increased by five basis points while cap rates for the net leased industrial sector declined by two basis points.
The increase within the net leased retail sector represents the third consecutive quarter of increases for that sector. While the demand for net leased assets remains strong, upward pressure on interest rates is creating upward pressure on cap rates. In the third quarter, the 10-year treasury yield peaked at 3.10%, the second highest level since 2014. The rising cap rate environment has the greatest impact on properties with no rental escalation, weak credit properties, or those in secondary/tertiary markets. In addition, assets priced above $12 million that are typically sold to institutional buyers experienced significant cap rate increases. Institutional buyers are more sensitive to the volatility of financing markets as they struggle to meet internal fixed-yield targets.
Although the supply of net leased properties increased slightly during the third quarter, there is a reported lack of new construction assets with long-term leases. Cap rates for recently constructed properties with strong credit tenants experienced little or no cap rate movement. We note that the net lease market is expected to remain active during the balance of 2018, as both institutional and fund investors attempt to reach acquisition allocations by year-end. The majority of net leased participants expect cap rates to remain in a similar range as the past few years
