Easterly Government Properties Receives Investment Grade Credit Rating

Reflective of its Superior Tenancy and Investment Grade Balance Sheet, Easterly Achieves Inaugural BBB Rating with Stable Outlook

Easterly Government Properties, Inc. (NYSE: DEA) today announced that the company received an investment grade issuer credit rating from Kroll Bond Rating Agency, LLC (“KBRA”) of BBB with Stable Outlook.

“Receiving this investment grade rating from KBRA is reflective of the strong underlying credit quality of our cashflows and the secure balance sheet we have built at Easterly Government Properties,” stated Allison Marino, Easterly’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Accounting Officer. “With approximately 99% of our annualized lease income coming from KBRA’s AAA rated U.S. Government credit, we intend to utilize our attractive cost of capital to drive shareholder value.”

“We are pleased KBRA recognizes the strength of our balance sheet supported by leases of mission critical facilities to government agencies with an enduring mission,” said Darrell Crate, Chief Executive Officer of Easterly Government Properties. “We expect to use this rating to expand our capital base and support earnings growth for our shareholders.”
