ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Broadstone Real Estate today announced an increase to the regular quarterly cash dividend of Broadstone Net Lease, a private real estate investment trust (REIT) managed by the firm. The REIT's independent Board of Directors voted to increase the quarterly dividend from $1.05 per share to $1.12, which represents a 6.6 percent increase.
