ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadstone Real Estate today announced an increase to the regular quarterly cash dividend of Broadstone Net Lease, a private real estate investment trust (REIT) managed by the firm. The REIT's independent Board of Directors voted to increase the quarterly dividend from $1.05 per share to $1.12, which represents a 6.6 percent increase.

Broadstone Net Lease's current distribution is $4.48 per share on an annualized basis, representing a 6.8 percent dividend yield. Board members also voted to increase the determined share value from $65 to $66 per share for new investments received between Feb. 1 and April 30, 2014.  The original price at inception on Dec. 31, 2007, was $50 per share.

"This dividend increase reflects about half of the 17 percent growth in adjusted operating funds from operations per share achieved in 2013, thereby allowing us to maintain a conservative dividend payout ratio of under 90 percent," explained Amy Tait, Broadstone Chairman and CEO.  "In 2014, we intend to continue to grow the diversified portfolio through accretive acquisitions, while maintaining the quality of our portfolio and the strength of our balance sheet."
