Item 2.01 Completion of Acquisition or Disposition of Assets.
On August 28, 2014, Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. (the "Company"), through a wholly-owned subsidiary, acquired two retail properties totaling 89,000 square feet located in Greenwich, Connecticut (Fairfield County) (the "Greenwich Properties") for $47.4 million from an unaffiliated property owner. The properties were purchased free and clear of mortgages.  The purchase was funded with available cash, borrowings under the company's unsecured revolving credit facility and a $25 million unsecured term loan.
On September 2, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the acquisition of the Greenwich Properties. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
On February 19, 2014, the Company, through two wholly-owned subsidiaries, completed the purchase of a fifty percent tenant-in-common interest in the Gateway Plaza Shopping Center (the "Gateway Property") and Applebee's Plaza (the "Applebee's Plaza Property") for a combined purchase price of $14.05 million from an unaffiliated property owner.  Both properties are located in Riverhead, NY (Suffolk County) (the "Retail Joint Ventures"). The Applebee's Plaza property was purchased subject to an existing first mortgage payable encumbering the property in the amount of $1.2 million. The mortgage matures in January 2019 and bears interest at a fixed rate of 5.98% per annum.  Simultaneously with the closing of our interest in the Gateway Property, a $14 million first mortgage payable was placed on the property.  The mortgage loan has a term of ten years and bears interest at a fixed rate of 4.18% per annum.  The Company funded its remaining equity needed to complete the two investments with borrowings under its unsecured revolving credit facility and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its non-core portfolio.
On February 21, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the investments in the Retail Joint Ventures.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2.
In January 2014, the Company acquired the 30,940 square foot Bethel Hub Shopping Center in Bethel, CT (Fairfield County) (the "Bethel Property") for a purchase price of $9.0 million from an unaffiliated property owner.  The property was purchased free and clear of mortgages. The $9.0 million acquisition was funded with proceeds from the sale of the Company's non-core properties.
On January 13, 2014, the Company issued a press release announcing the acquisition of the Bethel Property.  A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.3.
In December 2013, the Company, through two wholly-owned subsidiaries, acquired two New Jersey retail properties totaling 119,000 square feet. The first property is located in Boonton, New Jersey (Morris County) (the "Boonton Property") and was purchased for $18.35 million from an unaffiliated property owner. The purchase was funded with borrowings under our unsecured revolving credit facility and the assumption of a first mortgage payable encumbering the property in the amount of $7.8 million.  The mortgage matures in September 2022 and has a fixed interest rate of 4.2%.  The second property is located in Bloomfield, New Jersey (Essex County) (the "Bloomfield Property") and was purchased for $11.0 million from an unaffiliated property owner. The purchase was funded with borrowings under our unsecured revolving credit facility and the assumption of a first mortgage payable encumbering the property in the amount of $7.7 million.  The mortgage matures in August 2016 and has a fixed interest rate of 5.5%.
