The weighted-average lag between leases signed during the fourth quarter of 2017 and the contractual commencement date was eight months.

In addition to new leases signed, Digital Realty also signed renewal leases representing $64 million of annualized GAAP rental revenue during the quarter. Rental rates on renewal leases signed during the fourth quarter of 2017 rolled up 2.3% on a cash basis and up 5.7% on a GAAP basis.

Investment Activity

During the fourth quarter of 2017, Digital Realty entered into a 50/50 joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation to provide data center solutions in Japan. Mitsubishi Corporation contributed two existing data center facilities in the western Tokyo suburb of Mitaka, while Digital Realty contributed its recently completed data center development project in Osaka. The three seed assets were collectively valued at approximately 40 billion Japanese Yen, or approximately $350 million.

Likewise during the fourth quarter of 2017, Digital Realty acquired a 250,000 square foot data center on a 19-acre site in suburban Chicago, approximately four miles from the company's Franklin Park campus, for a purchase price of $315 million. Roughly three-fourths of the building has been developed and is fully leased, and the property is expected to generate cash net operating income of approximately $22 million in 2018, representing a 7% going-in cap rate. The remaining 65,000 square feet of shell space is available for build-out of approximately eight megawatts of critical load from a dedicated, on-site sub-station.

Digital Realty also acquired a 132,000 square foot multi-story parking garage adjacent to the company's highly connected Sovereign House data center in London for a purchase price of £22 million, or approximately $30 million. The parking garage is expected to generate cash net operating income of £0.8 million, or approximately $1 million, representing a 4% cap rate on in-place parking income. Digital Realty leased space within the parking garage to house critical Sovereign House equipment. This acquisition secures the company's position beyond the expiration of its previous parking garage lease in 2026.

Separately, Digital Realty acquired a 1.4-acre land parcel adjacent to 350 E. Cermak in Chicago, IL for a purchase price of $25 million. The site is expected to support the development of a 12-story, 720,000 square foot data center with up to 34 megawatts of critical power. Commencement of development will be subject to market demand, and delivery will be phased to facilitate customer expansion requirements.

During the fourth quarter of 2017, Digital Realty closed on the sale of 44874 Moran Road, a 78,000 square foot data center in Sterling, VA for $34 million. The property was 100% leased and was expected to generate cash net operating income of approximately $3 million in 2017, representing an exit cap rate of 7%. The property was held in a consolidated joint venture, in which Digital Realty owned a 75% stake. The sale generated net proceeds of $34 million, and Digital Realty recognized a gain on the sale of approximately $12 million, net of non-controlling interests, during the fourth quarter.

Likewise during the fourth quarter of 2017, Digital Realty closed on the sale of 1 Solutions Parkway, a 156,000 square foot suburban office building in St. Louis, MO for $37 million. The property was 100% leased to a single tenant and was expected to generate cash net operating income of approximately $3 million in 2017, representing an exit cap rate of 7%. The sale generated net proceeds of $35 million, and Digital Realty recognized a gain on the sale of approximately $15 million.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Digital Realty closed on the sale of 34551 Ardenwood Boulevard, a 323,000 square foot technology manufacturing property in Fremont, CA for $73 million. The property was 86% leased and was expected to generate cash net operating income of approximately $5 million in 2018, representing an exit cap rate of 7%. The sale generated net proceeds of $72 million, and Digital Realty recognized a gain on the sale of approximately $25 million in the first quarter of 2018.

Subsequent to the end of the quarter, Digital Realty also closed on the sale of 200 Quannapowitt Parkway, a substantially vacant, 211,000 square foot data center redevelopment project in Wakefield, MA for $15 million. The sale generated net proceeds of $15 million, and Digital Realty recognized a loss on the sale of approximately $0.4 million in the first quarter of 2018.

Balance Sheet

Digital Realty had approximately $8.6 billion of total debt outstanding as of December 31, 2017, substantially all of which was unsecured. At the end of the fourth quarter of 2017, net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA was 5.2x, debt-plus-preferred-to-total enterprise value was 28.9% and fixed charge coverage was 4.2x.
