Exhibit 99.1


Plymouth Industrial REIT Expands in Ohio with $27 Million Cleveland Acquisition and Pending UPREIT Transaction in Cincinnati


BOSTON—(October 1, 2018) Plymouth Industrial REIT, Inc. (NYSE American: PLYM) announced that it has acquired a 400,000-square foot, multi-tenant Class A industrial building in Cleveland, Ohio for $27.0 million in cash, which was funded with borrowings under the Company’s secured credit facility. The Company also announced the signing of a definitive agreement to acquire a 1.1 million-square-foot, multi-tenant Class B industrial property in Cincinnati, Ohio for total consideration of $24.8 million. The Cincinnati transaction is expected to be funded with the issuance of operating partnership units and the assumption of existing mortgage debt.


The 400,000-square-foot 30339 Diamond Parkway in Cleveland is 100% leased to four tenants, including Royal Appliance Manufacturing Company and Ryder Logistics and located in Cleveland’s high-demand Southeast market. The acquisition is projected to provide an initial yield of 7.6%.


The Cincinnati acquisition, which is expected to close later this month, is projected to provide an initial yield of 8.5%. Plymouth expects to fund the transaction with the issuance of approximately $10.8 million in operating partnership units priced at $17.00 per unit, and the assumption of approximately $14 million of existing mortgage debt. Located on 103 acres with rail and crane service on site, the property is 92% leased to 12 tenants. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and due diligence as well as satisfactory assumption of the existing mortgage debt.


Pendleton White, President and Chief Investment Officer of Plymouth Industrial REIT, noted, “Cleveland and Cincinnati are attractive markets for us, and we are excited to increase our presence in each market. In addition to the stabilized income from strong current occupancy, the acquisitions offer opportunities to leverage our leasing expertise on future renewals in tight markets, significantly diversify our tenant base and secure future development potential.”
