(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 during the six months ended June 30, 2021 were impacted by a $46.5 million loss on extinguishment of debt due to the January 2021 early redemption of the 3.250% notes due October 2022 recorded in the three months ended March 31, 2021, and $13.3 million of merger-related costs related to our proposed merger with VEREIT. Our financial results during the six months ended June 30, 2020 were impacted by a $9.8 million loss on extinguishment of debt due to the January 2020 early redemption of the 5.750% notes due 2021, and a $3.5 million executive severance charge for our former chief financial officer. 

(3)

FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO are non-GAAP financial measures. Normalized FFO is based on FFO and adjusted to exclude merger-related costs related to our proposed merger with VEREIT and AFFO further adjusts Normalized FFO for unique revenue and expense items, such as losses on extinguishment of debt and executive severance costs. Please see the Glossary in the Supplemental Operating and Financial Data for the three months ended June 30, 2021 for our definitions and explanations of how we utilize these metrics. See pages 10 and 11 herein for reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

(1)

Collection rates are calculated as the aggregate contractual rent collected for the applicable period from the beginning of that applicable period through June 30, 2021, divided by the contractual rent charged for the applicable period. Rent collection percentages are calculated based on contractual rents (excluding percentage rents and contractually obligated reimbursements by our clients). Charged amounts have not been adjusted for any COVID-19 related rent relief granted and include contractual rents from any clients 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 rent.

(2)

We define our top 20 clients as our 20 largest clients based on percentage of total portfolio annualized contractual rent as of June 30, 2021 for all periods.

(3)

Please see the Glossary in the Supplemental Operating and Financial Data for the three months ended June 30, 2021 for our definition of investment grade clients.

We either have executed deferral agreements or maintain ongoing deferral discussions with clients that account for a majority of the unpaid contractual rent for each of the periods referenced in the table above.

Initial average cash lease yield is a supplemental operating measure. Please see the Glossary in the Supplemental Operating and Financial Data for the three months ended June 30, 2021 for our definition of this metric. Contractual net operating income used in the calculation of initial average cash yield for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 includes approximately $850,000 received as settlement credits for four properties acquired as reimbursement of free rent periods.

(2) 

Represents investments of £424.9 million Sterling during the three months ended June 30, 2021 and £715.1 million Sterling during the six months ended June 30, 2021, converted at the applicable exchange rate on the date of acquisition.

(3)

Our clients occupying the new properties operate in 19 industries and are 85.1% retail and 14.9% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 54% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the three months ended June 30, 2021 is from our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.

(4)

Our clients occupying the new properties operate in 28 industries and are 75.8% retail and 24.2% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 47% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the six months ended June 30, 2021 is from our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.

For purposes of comparability, same store rental revenue is presented on a constant currency basis using the exchange rate as of June 30, 2021 of 1.38 GBP/USD.

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 $5.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $3.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, and $13.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 compared to $3.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020. 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 increases for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 relative to the comparable periods for 2020 would have been 16.3% and 4.9%, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Markets

Equity Capital Raising

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we raised $457.5 million from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $69.01 per share, primarily through our At-The-Market-Program.

In July 2021, we raised $594.1 million from the issuance of 9,200,000 shares of common stock in an underwritten public offering, inclusive of 1,200,000 shares purchased by the underwriters upon the exercise of their option to purchase additional shares.

In July 2021, we issued £400 million of 1.125% senior unsecured notes due 2027 (the "2027" Notes) and £350 million of 1.750% senior unsecured notes due 2033 (the "2033" Notes). The public offering price for the 2027 Notes was 99.305% of the principal amount, for an effective semi-annual yield to maturity of 1.242%, and the public offering price for the 2033 Notes was 99.842% of the principal amount, for an effective semi-annual yield to maturity of 1.757%. Combined, the new issues of the 2027 Notes and 2033 Notes have a weighted average term of 8.8 years and a weighted average effective semi-annual yield to maturity of 1.48%. The issuances represented our debut green bond offering.

Revolving 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 June 30, 2021, the balance of borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility was $635.3 million, consisting entirely of Sterling-denominated borrowings of £460.0 million.

Additionally, we have 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 proceeds used for general corporate purposes. We use our unsecured revolving credit facility as a liquidity backstop for the repayment of the notes issued under this program. As of June 30, 2021, we had $650.0 million in commercial paper borrowings.

2021 Earnings Guidance

We estimate Normalized FFO per share for 2021 of $3.37 to $3.46. We estimate AFFO per share for 2021 of $3.53 to $3.59, an increase of 4.1% to 5.9% over 2020 AFFO per share of $3.39. Normalized FFO per share and AFFO per share exclude the merger-related costs associated with the proposed VEREIT merger. Summarized below are approximate estimates of the key components of our 2021 earnings guidance, which do not give effect to the announced merger between us and VEREIT, Inc. other than merger-related costs incurred to date:

(1)        

As of June 30, 2021, there was $40.5 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 Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and $61.2 million of uncollected rent for which we have not granted a lease concession.

(2)        

See Normalized FFO calculations on page ten 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 current and previous term loans. The deferred financing costs are being amortized over the lives of the respective notes payable, mortgages and term loan. 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.
