Four Corners Property Trust, Inc. (“FCPT” or the “Company”, NYSE: FCPT) today announced that it has entered into agreements to issue $100 million of senior unsecured notes (the “Notes”). The Notes have a ten-year term and are priced at a fixed interest rate of 6.44%.

With the issuance, the Company’s weighted-average debt maturity is approximately 5.3 years, excluding the Company’s unsecured revolving credit facility. Net proceeds from the offering will be used for general corporate purposes including the funding of acquisitions.
