“Ringing the first opening bell of the New Year is an exciting way to celebrate the beginning of an important new chapter in STORE Capital’s history,” said Volk. “We were gratified by Wall Street’s enthusiastic response to our IPO and strong interest in our Company. The proceeds from our IPO are being used to further expand our real estate portfolio and sustain our leadership position in investing in profit center net-lease real estate. In partnering with our middle market and larger customers, we have built a remarkable value proposition that provides tailored real estate lease solutions that create value for them by improving their capital efficiency. Going public was an important step in our long term strategy, giving us more opportunity to help our customers as we grow.”
