One Liberty Properties Enhances Credit Facility

Extends Term and Eliminates Interest Rate Floor

GREAT NECK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2015) - One Liberty Properties, Inc.

Patrick J. Callan, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of One Liberty, said, "We are pleased with our bank group's continued confidence in One Liberty and our strategy. With the amendment and a reduction to our interest costs, we can continue to pursue accretive opportunities to deploy capital to grow our recurring cash flow."
