Gladstone Commercial executed an early renewal and 12-year lease extension with Valspar Specialty Paints, LLC, which will be guaranteed by The Valspar Corporation ("Valspar"), for all 125,692 square feet at the Company's industrial property located in a large industrial park in Menomonee Falls, WI, a Milwaukee suburb. The lease amendment extends the maturity to August 31, 2028 and adds Valspar, the corporate parent, as a guarantor.

"We are excited that Valspar and JBT have chosen to extend their leases at our properties to continue their growth. Both properties are critical to each tenant's operations and are well located in large business parks in strong secondary markets. By securing these long-term lease renewals, we are maintaining 100% occupancy at these properties through 2028 and 2021, respectively," remarked Matt Tucker, Managing Director of Gladstone Commercial. "Today's announcement brings total year-to-date 2015 leasing volume to over 740,000 square feet.
