Easterly Government Properties, Inc. (NYSE: DEA) (the “Company” or “Easterly”), a fully integrated real estate investment trust focused primarily on the acquisition, development and management of Class A commercial properties leased to the U.S. Government and its adjacent partners, announced today that it has acquired a 135,200 square foot facility primarily leased to the Office of the Chief Information Officer (“OCIO”) and Office of Human Capital of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), located near Dallas, Texas (“ICE - Dallas”).

ICE - Dallas is a 95% leased facility that has been renovated to suit the ICE’s OCIO and Office of Human Capital. The OCIO is responsible for delivering innovative information technology (IT) and business solutions that enable ICE to protect and secure the nation. The asset will help facilitate the OCIO’s mission critical IT initiatives to modernize ICE’s IT systems and adapt and conform to modern IT management disciplines. Two additional triple net (NNN) private tenants occupy the remaining leased space and feature annual lease escalations. The weighted average initial lease term for all three tenancies is 16.2 years and still carries a weighted average remaining lease term of 13.3 years at the time of this release.

“This strategic acquisition positions us to further enhance Easterly’s cashflows and provide accretive growth for our shareholders,” said Darrell Crate, Easterly’s Chief Executive Officer. “With the addition of this asset and the excellent creditworthiness of our tenancy, we continue to fortify our balance sheet to enable continued growth across market cycles.”

Easterly’s acquisition value was predicated on the current leased square footage of the property, which excludes unleased space to which we attribute no value as part of the purchase price. ICE - Dallas currently has an additional 6,154 square feet available for future leasing as a value-add opportunity.

With this acquisition, Easterly owns, directly or through the Company’s joint venture, 91 properties totaling 8.9 million square feet.
