NEW YORK, NEW YORK (January 21, 2020) Griffin Industrial Realty, Inc. (NASDAQ: GRIF) (“Griffin”) announced that it recently entered into two separate purchase and sale agreements with different sellers to acquire industrial/warehouse buildings of approximately 108,000 square feet and approximately 68,000 square feet, respectively, in Orlando, Florida.

Closings on these two purchases are each subject to the satisfactory completion of due diligence by Griffin. There is no guarantee that either of these building purchases will be completed under their current terms, or at all.
