Tenant Description

O'Reilly Auto Parts (NASDAQ: ORLY), is one of the dominant retailers in the auto parts sector.

O'Reilly’s continues to be an attractive investment for investors due to their long term leases (15 - 20 years), periodic rent increases, two (2) - four (4), five-year renewal options, and investment grade rating. The automotive sector remains an investor favorite, as tenants like O’Reilly, show they can be successful in good and bad economic times. This resilience demonstrates the continuous demand in the automotive sector regardless of other factors.

O’Reilly Auto Parts was founded in 1957 as a single store in Springfield, Missouri and its headquarters are still located there. As of December 31, 2018, O’Reilly’s has grown to 5,219 stores across 47 states.

O'Reilly sells an extensive line of new, aftermarket and remanufactured automotive parts, maintenance items, tooling supplies, accessories, automotive tools, and professional service equipment. For years, it has focused on a dual-market strategy catering to both the "Do It For Me" (DIFM) professional service providers (PSPs) as well as "Do It Yourself" (DIY) individual consumers. This dual strategy contributes to O'Reilly's success and is one of the competitive advantages O'Reilly has over its competitors, along with its strong distribution network.

Auto parts store properties remain in high demand among net lease investors as there are very few investment grade options that are priced below $2 million with the exception of dollar stores. The retail auto parts industry continues to thrive as the age of vehicles on the road continues to increase.
