Achieves Baa1 Rating With A Stable Outlook

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich., March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Agree Realty Corporation (NYSE: ADC) (the "Company") today announced that Moody's Investors Service has upgraded the Company's issuer rating to Baa1 from Baa2 with a stable outlook.

According to Moody's press release, the Baa1 issuer rating reflects the Company's solid credit profile, supported by its low leveraged balance sheet and flexible capital structure with a resilient, largely unencumbered portfolio. Additionally, Moody's stated that the Company's strong liquidity position and access to capital has enabled the Company to comfortably fund its investment activity and meet its minimal near-term debt maturities.
