ITEM 8.01
Other Events.

On August 11, 2016, Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (“we,” “our” or “us”) announced the following:
From July 1, 2016 through August 9, 2016, we acquired 68 properties for a gross acquisition cost of approximately $144.9 million (including $7.5 million contractually committed to renovations) in six transactions with an initial cash yield of approximately 7.41% (based on in-place base rent payable under the lease as described below) and a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 13.6 years.
We also have identified and are in various stages of reviewing a number of potential property acquisitions. As of August 9, 2016, we were tracking and evaluating properties that present acquisition opportunities through the third quarter of 2016 with an estimated aggregate purchase price of over $329.7 million, in addition to acquisitions under contract with an aggregate purchase price of approximately $43.5 million. Our acquisition of these properties (other than the acquisitions under contract) is subject to us negotiating and executing with the sellers mutually acceptable definitive and binding purchase and sale agreements. There can be no assurance that the sellers of these properties will be willing to proceed with a transaction, that we will be able to negotiate and execute satisfactory definitive purchase and sale agreements with the sellers, that our due diligence will be satisfactory or that the conditions to closing will be satisfied. As such, there can be no assurance that we will complete any of the potential acquisitions that we are evaluating.
We calculate initial cash yield from acquired properties by dividing the first 12 months of contractual cash rent (excluding any future rent escalations provided for in the lease and contingent rent) by gross investment in the properties. Gross investment in an acquired property includes the contracted purchase price and any related capitalized transaction costs. Because it excludes any future rent increases or additional rent that may be contractually provided for in the lease, as well as any other income or fees that may be earned from lease modifications or asset dispositions, initial cash yield does not represent the annualized investment rate of return of acquired properties. Additionally, actual cash rent earned from acquired properties may differ from the contractual cash rent used in calculating the initial cash yield based on other factors, including difficulties collecting contractual rental revenues and unanticipated expenses at these properties that we cannot pass on to tenants, as well as the risk factors set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015.
From July 1, 2016 through August 9, 2016, we disposed of four properties for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $6.9 million, with the three occupied properties achieving a capitalization rate of approximately 8.41% (based on in-place base rent payable under the lease), and an overall gain on sale of $0.03 million. As of August 9, 2016, we had dispositions under contract that would generate aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $57.1 million. While we expect to complete these dispositions, the consummation of each disposition is subject to customary closing conditions. As a result, there can be no assurance that we will complete these dispositions.
We calculate the capitalization rate for disposed properties as the annualized cash rent on the date of disposition divided by the gross sales price. For multi-tenant properties, non-reimbursable property costs are deducted from the annualized cash rent prior to computing the capitalization rate. Annualized cash rent for a disposed property represents the annualized monthly contractual cash rent under the related lease at time of disposition.
Liquidity and Debt Maturities by Year
As of August 9, 2016, we had approximately $654.7 million of borrowing capacity available (subject to customary conditions) under the revolving credit facility of our operating partnership, Spirit Realty, L.P., $21.2 million cash and cash equivalents and $20.1 million restricted cash available under our master funding program (representing proceeds from the sale of collateral under the program held on deposit until a qualifying substitution is made or the funds are applied as prepayment of principal).
As of June 30, 2016, our debt had a weighted average stated interest rate of 4.51% and a weighted average maturity

of 4.8 years. The following table summarizes our debt maturities and weighted average stated interest rates as of June 30, 2016 (dollars in millions):




(1) Amounts aggregated by outstanding principal balance of debt by year of maturity without giving effect to scheduled principal amortization. A significant portion of our secured debt is partially amortizing and requires a balloon payment at maturity.
(2) Interest rates include the default interest rate with a weighted average stated interest rate of 9.85% on $36.5 million (including $7.9 million of capitalized interest) of defaulted commercial mortgage backed securities. If the commercial mortgage backed securities were excluded, the total weighted average stated interest rate would be 4.45%.
