CEO Comments

"Our operating and financial performance continues to drive favorable risk-adjusted earnings growth for our company," said John P. Case, Realty Income's Chief Executive Officer. "We remained selective during the third quarter, completing $265 million in acquisitions at attractive investment spreads relative to our cost of capital. Year-to-date, we have completed $957 million in acquisitions and our pipeline remains robust. We continue to expect to complete approximately $1.5 billion in acquisitions in 2017. Our high-quality real estate portfolio ended the quarter with occupancy of 98.3% as we re-leased 79 properties at a recapture rate of nearly 104%, our fifth-consecutive quarter in excess of 100%."

"During the third quarter, we issued $444 million in common equity primarily through our ATM program, further fortifying the strength of our balance sheet. Our fixed charge coverage ratio of 4.7x represents the highest level in our company's history. Our outlook remains positive and we are reiterating our 2017 AFFO per share guidance of $3.03 - $3.07, representing annual growth of 5.2% - 6.6%."

Financial Results

Revenue
Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 10.7% to $306.9 million, as compared to $277.2 million for the same quarter in 2016. Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased 11.0% to $905.1 million, as compared to $815.3 million for the same period in 2016.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders
Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $87.9 million, as compared to $70.3 million for the same quarter in 2016. Net income per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 was $0.32, as compared to $0.27 for the same quarter in 2016.

Net income available to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $240.7 million, as compared to $202.8 million for the same period in 2016. Net income per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $0.89, as compared to $0.80 for the same period in 2016.

The calculation to determine net income for a real estate company includes impairments, gains on property sales and/or fair value adjustments on interest rate swaps. These items can vary from quarter to quarter and can significantly impact net income and period to period comparisons.

Funds From Operations Available to Common Stockholders (FFO)
FFO for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 12.2% to $211.2 million, as compared to $188.3 million for the same quarter in 2016. FFO per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 5.5% to $0.77, as compared to $0.73 for the same quarter in 2016.

FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased 12.3% to $601.7 million, as compared to $535.6 million for the same period in 2016. FFO per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased 5.2% to $2.22, as compared to $2.11 for the same period in 2016.

FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was impacted by the $13.4 million non-cash redemption charge on the 6.625% Monthly Income Class F Preferred Stock that was redeemed in April 2017, which represents $0.05 per share. This charge is based on the excess of redemption value over the carrying value of the 6.625% Monthly Income Class F Preferred Stock that represents the original issuance cost that was paid in 2012.

Adjusted Funds From Operations Available to Common Stockholders (AFFO)
AFFO for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 14.5% to $213.6 million, as compared to $186.6 million for the same quarter in 2016. AFFO per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2017 increased 6.9% to $0.77, as compared to $0.72 for the same quarter in 2016.

AFFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased 14.7% to $623.3 million, as compared to $543.4 million for the same period in 2016. AFFO per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 increased 7.5% to $2.30, as compared to $2.14 for the same period in 2016.

The company considers FFO and AFFO to be appropriate supplemental measures of a Real Estate Investment Trust's (REIT's) operating performance. Realty Income defines FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' (NAREIT's) definition, as net income available to common stockholders, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, plus impairments of real estate assets, and reduced by gains on property sales. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which the company believes are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company's ongoing operating performance. Presentation of the information regarding FFO and AFFO is intended to assist the reader in comparing the operating performance of different REITs, although it should be noted that not all REITs calculate FFO and AFFO in the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to reviewing our cash flows from operating, investing, and financing activities. In addition, FFO and AFFO should not be considered as measures of liquidity, our ability to make cash distributions, or our ability to pay interest payments. See the reconciliations of net income available to common stockholders to FFO and AFFO on pages six and seven of this press release. 

Dividend Increases
In September 2017, Realty Income announced the 80th consecutive quarterly dividend increase, which is the 93rd increase in the amount of the dividend since the company's listing on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 1994. The annualized dividend amount as of September 30, 2017 was $2.544 per share. The amount of monthly dividends paid per share increased 5.7% to $0.635 in the third quarter of 2017 from $0.601 in the third quarter of 2016.

Real Estate Portfolio Update

As of September 30, 2017, Realty Income's portfolio of freestanding, single-tenant properties consisted of 5,062 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico, leased to 251 different commercial tenants, and doing business in 47 industries. The properties are leased under long-term, net lease agreements with a weighted average remaining lease term of 9.6 years.

Portfolio Management Activities
The company's portfolio of commercial real estate, owned primarily under long-term net leases, continues to perform well and provides dependable rental revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of September 30, 2017, portfolio occupancy was 98.3% with 86 properties available for lease out of a total of 5,062 properties in the portfolio, as compared to 98.5% as of June 30, 2017, and 98.3% as of September 30, 2016. Economic occupancy, or occupancy as measured by rental revenue, was 98.5% as of September 30, 2017, as compared to 99.1% as of June 30, 2017, and 98.8% as of September 30, 2016.

Since June 30, 2017, when the company reported 76 properties available for lease, the company had 99 lease expirations, re-leased 79 properties and sold 10 vacant properties during the quarter ended September 30, 2017. Of the 79 properties re-leased during the third quarter of 2017, 73 properties were re-leased to the same tenants, four were re-leased to new tenants without vacancy, and two were re-leased to new tenants after a period of vacancy. The annual new rent on these re-leases was $15.39 million, as compared to the previous annual rent of $14.84 million on the same properties, representing a rent recapture rate of 103.7% on the properties re-leased during the quarter ended September 30, 2017.  

Rent Increases
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, same store rents on 4,272 properties under lease increased 1.0% to $244.9 million, as compared to $242.6 million for the same quarter in 2016. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, same store rents on 4,272 properties under lease increased 1.0% to $734.8 million, as compared to $727.4 million for the same period in 2016.

Investments in Real Estate
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income invested $264.9 million in 56 new properties and properties under development or expansion, located in 16 states. These properties are 100% leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 15.2 years and an initial average cash lease yield of 7.0%. The tenants occupying the new properties operate in ten industries, and the property types are 100% retail, based on rental revenue. Approximately 10% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the third quarter of 2017 is from investment grade rated tenants.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income invested approximately $956.9 million in 177 new properties and properties under development or expansion, located in 35 states. These properties are 100% leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 14.9 years and an initial average lease yield of 6.5%. The tenants occupying the new properties operate in 21 industries, and the property types are 96.6% retail and 3.4% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 39% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the first nine months of 2017 is from investment grade rated tenants.

Property Dispositions
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income sold 17 properties for $25.5 million, with a gain on sales of $4.3 million, as compared to 24 properties sold for $19.6 million, with a gain on sales of $4.3 million, during the same quarter in 2016.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income sold 46 properties for $69.5 million, with a gain on sales of $17.7 million, as compared to 51 properties sold for $55.2 million, with a gain on sales of $15.3 million, during the same period in 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Markets

Capital Raising
During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income raised $443.7 million from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $57.53 per share. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, Realty Income raised $1.3 billion from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $59.99 per share.

Credit Facility
Realty Income has a $2.25 billion unsecured credit facility. This credit facility is comprised of a $2.0 billion revolving credit facility and a $250 million five-year unsecured term loan. The credit facility also has a $1.0 billion expansion feature. As of September 30, 2017, Realty Income had a borrowing capacity of $1.34 billion available on its revolving credit facility.

2017 Earnings Guidance

We estimate FFO per share for 2017 of $2.96 to $3.01. FFO per share for 2017 is impacted by a $13.4 million non-cash redemption charge on the Class F preferred shares that were redeemed in April 2017, which represents $0.05 per share. FFO per share for 2017 is based on a net income per share range of $1.15 to $1.20, plus estimated real estate depreciation and impairments of $1.88 per share, and reduced by potential estimated gains on sales of investment properties of $0.07 per share (in accordance with NAREIT's definition of FFO).

We estimate AFFO per share for 2017 of $3.03 to $3.07. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which are not as pertinent to the measurement of Realty Income's ongoing operating performance.

Additional earnings guidance detail can be found in Realty Income's supplemental materials available on Realty Income's corporate website at https://www.realtyincome.com/investors/financial-information/quarterly-results/default.aspx.
