Collection rates are calculated as the aggregate cash rent collected 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 a denominator that reflects pre-COVID-19 contractual base rents (excluding percentage rents and tenant reimbursements). Charged amounts have not been adjusted for any rent relief granted and include contractual base rents from any tenants in bankruptcy.


We define top 20 tenants for any period as our 20 largest tenants based on percentage of total portfolio annualized rental revenue as of the last day of such period.


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).

The company has either executed deferral agreements or maintains ongoing deferral discussions with tenants that account for a majority of the unpaid contractual rent for each of the periods referenced above.  Additional detail on rent collections, including information regarding industry-specific collection, can be found in Realty Income's institutional investor presentation available at The foregoing information does not purport to reflect our results of operations or financial condition for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.
