(1)

The calculation to determine net income attributable to common stockholders includes provisions for impairment, gains on sales of real estate, and foreign currency gains and losses. These items can vary from quarter to quarter and can significantly impact net income available to common stockholders and period to period comparisons.



(2) 

Our financial results in the first nine months of 2020 were impacted by the following transactions: (i) $123.4 million of provisions for impairment in the first nine months of 2020, of which $105.1 million related to the third quarter, (ii) $34.4 million in reserves recorded as a reduction of rental revenue in the first nine months of 2020, of which $24.1 million related to the third quarter, (iii) a $9.8 million loss on extinguishment of debt due to the January 2020 early redemption of the 5.750% notes due 2021 recorded in the first quarter of 2020, and (iv) a $3.5 million executive severance charge for our former CFO also recorded in the first quarter of 2020.



(3) 

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 provisions for 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 nine and ten of this press release.

(1)

Collection rates are calculated as the aggregate cash rent collected for the applicable period from the beginning of that applicable period through October 31, 2020, divided by the contractual cash rent charged for the applicable period. Cash rent collected is defined as amounts received including amounts in transit, where the tenant has confirmed payment is in process. Rent collection percentages are calculated based on contractual base rents (excluding percentage rents and tenant reimbursements). Charged amounts have not been adjusted for any COVID-19 related rent relief granted and include contractual base rents from any tenants in bankruptcy. Due to differences in applicable foreign currency conversion rates and rent conventions, the percentages above may differ from percentages calculated utilizing our total portfolio annualized contractual revenue.



(2)

We define top 20 tenants as our 20 largest tenants based on percentage of total portfolio annualized contractual rental revenue as of the most recent reported period.



(3)

We define investment grade tenants as tenants with a credit rating, and tenants that are subsidiaries or affiliates of companies with a credit rating, of Baa3/BBB- or higher from one of the three major rating agencies (Moody's/S&P/Fitch).

We have executed deferral agreements or maintain ongoing deferral discussions with tenants that account for a majority of the unpaid contractual rent for each of the periods referenced in the table above. Additional detail on rent collections can be found in our supplemental materials available on our corporate website at www.realtyincome.com/investors/financial-information/quarterly-results.

Theater Industry Update

As of September 30, 2020, the theater industry represented 5.7% of annualized contractual rental revenue. Given the ongoing disruption to the industry due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we performed a property-level analysis on the collectability of rent for our 78 theater properties, including the gross receivables outstanding as of September 30, 2020, totaling $44.9 million. Our analysis involved the assignment of quartile rankings for each asset's pre-pandemic EBITDAR relative to each operator's overall footprint. Other criteria utilized included an analysis of the property's pre-pandemic annual EBITDA generation before corporate overhead, and real estate fundamentals.

As a result of this analysis, we determined that for 31 of the 78 theater properties it was no longer probable that we would collect substantially all of contractual rents due. As a conservative measure, we fully reserved for six additional theater properties for which we do not possess unit level financial information. Consequently, we reserved for 100% of the outstanding receivables for 37 theater properties and will account prospectively for these leases on a cash accounting basis. The aggregate reserve associated with outstanding receivables for these properties totaled $17.2 million, approximately $1.6 million of which was a reserve for straight-line rent receivables. The dilution for the third quarter of 2020 as a result of establishing these reserves for our theater portfolio is $0.05 per share to our net income and FFO and $0.04 per share to our AFFO. The monthly contractual rent associated with these properties totals approximately $2.8 million.

Additionally, during the third quarter, we recorded provisions for impairment on 12 of the 37 theater properties for $79.0 million. Impairment charges are not included in Nareit-defined FFO or in our calculation of AFFO.

See "Item 1A--Risk Factors" in Part II of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for quarter ended September 30, 2020 for more information regarding the actual and potential future impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to limit its spread on our tenants and our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.

Dividend Increases 

In September 2020, we announced the 92nd  consecutive quarterly dividend increase, which is the 108th 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, 2020 was $2.808 per share. The amount of monthly dividends paid per share increased 3.1% to $0.701 in the third quarter of 2020, as compared to $0.680 in the third quarter of 2019. During the third quarter of 2020, the company distributed $242.2 million in common dividends to stockholders, representing 85.7% of its AFFO of $282.5 million.

Real Estate Portfolio Update

As of September 30, 2020, our portfolio consisted of 6,588 properties located in 49 U.S. states, Puerto Rico and the U.K., and leased to approximately 600 different tenants doing business in 51 separate industries. The properties are primarily freestanding and leased under long-term, net lease agreements with a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 9.0 years. The company's portfolio of commercial real estate has historically provided dependable rental revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of September 30, 2020, portfolio occupancy was 98.6% with 92 properties available for lease or sale out of 6,588, as compared to 98.5% as of June 30, 2020 and 98.3% as of September 30, 2019.

The tenants occupying the new properties operate in 15 industries, and are 97.2% retail and 2.8% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 73% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the third quarter of 2020 is from investment grade rated tenants, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.

Our calculation of same store rental revenue includes rent deferred for future payment as a result of lease concessions we granted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and recognized under the practical expedient provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). Same store rental income was negatively impacted by reserves recorded as reductions of rental revenue of $19.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $241,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2019, and $26.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared to $1.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Our calculation of same store rental revenue also includes uncollected rent for which we have not granted a lease concession. If these applicable amounts of rent deferrals and uncollected rent were excluded from our calculation of same store rental revenue, the decreases for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 relative to the comparable periods for 2019 would have been (4.6)% and (5.9)%, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Markets

Capital Raising
In July 2020, we issued $350.0 million of 3.250% senior unsecured notes due January 2031, which constituted a further issuance of, and formed a single series with, the $600.0 million senior notes issued in May 2020. The public offering price was 108.241% of the principal amount, for an effective yield to maturity of 2.341%. 

During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, we raised $348.6 million from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $62.57 per share, primarily through our At-The-Market-Program.

In October 2020, we issued £400.0 million of 1.625% senior unsecured notes due December 2030. The public offering price for these notes was 99.191% of the principal amount, for an effective yield to maturity of 1.712%. The issuance represented our debut public offering of Sterling-denominated notes.

Credit Facility and Commercial Paper Program
We have a $3.0 billion unsecured revolving credit facility, with an initial term that expires in March 2023 (subject to two six-month options to extend). The revolving credit facility also has a $1.0 billion accordion feature, which is subject to obtaining lender commitments. As of September 30, 2020, the balance of borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility was $556.1 million, consisting entirely of Sterling-denominated borrowings of £430.5 million. In addition, we had a cash balance of $724.8 million.

In August 2020, we established a U.S. dollar-denominated unsecured commercial paper program. Under the terms of this program, we may issue unsecured commercial paper notes up to a maximum aggregate amount outstanding of $1.0 billion, with note proceeds used for general corporate purposes. We expect to use our unsecured revolving credit facility as a liquidity backstop for the repayment of the notes issued under this program. As of September 30, 2020, the balance of our commercial paper program was $300.0 million.

2020 Acquisitions Guidance

Our current guidance relating to our acquisition volume is approximately $2.0 billion for 2020. We continue to evaluate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business as the situation continues to evolve.

ADJUSTED FUNDS FROM OPERATIONS (AFFO)
(dollars in thousands, except per share amounts) 

We define AFFO as FFO adjusted for unique revenue and expense items, which the company believes are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company's ongoing operating performance. Most companies in our industry use a similar measurement to AFFO, but they may use the term "CAD" (for Cash Available for Distribution) or "FAD" (for Funds Available for Distribution).

(1) 

As of September 30, 2020, there was $26.5 million of uncollected rent deferred as a result of lease concessions we granted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and recognized under the practical expedient provided by the FASB and $36.4 million of uncollected rent for which we have not granted a lease concession. The collection of the $62.9 million of unpaid rent is probable. Deferrals accounted for as modifications totaling $63,000 and $224,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, respectively, have not been added back to AFFO.



(2) 

See FFO calculation on page nine for reconciling items.



(3) 

The executive severance charge represents the incremental costs incurred upon our former CFO's departure in March 2020, consisting of $1.6 million of cash, $1.8 million of share-based compensation expense and $58,000 of professional fees.



(4) 

Includes the amortization of costs incurred and capitalized upon issuance of our notes payable, assumption of our mortgages payable and issuance of our term loans. The deferred financing costs are being amortized over the lives of the respective notes payable, mortgages and term loans. No costs associated with our credit facility agreements or annual fees paid to credit rating agencies have been included.



(5) 

Straight-line payments from cross-currency swaps represent quarterly payments in U.S. dollars received by us from counterparties in exchange for associated foreign currency payments. These USD payments are fixed and determinable for the duration of the associated hedging transaction.



(6) 

Includes adjustments allocable to noncontrolling interests, obligations related to financing lease liabilities, and foreign currency gains and losses as a result of intercompany debt and remeasurement transactions.
