CEO Comments

“2021 was a milestone year and I am deeply appreciative of our talented ‘One Team’ and all that we have accomplished,” said Sumit Roy, Realty Income’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition to closing our merger with VEREIT, we expanded our global platform through our investment in Spain, a new growth vertical in Continental Europe. To that end, we invested a record $2.6 billion in high-quality real estate during the fourth quarter. This brings 2021 property-level acquisitions to $6.4 billion, setting an annual record for the company. Our core business remains healthy as portfolio occupancy ended the year at 98.5% and our balance sheet remains well-positioned to capitalize on a robust global investment pipeline in 2022.”

Theater Industry Update

As of December 31, 2021, our clients in the theater industry represented 3.4% of our annualized contractual rent. As of December 31, 2021, we were fully reserved for the outstanding receivable balances for 34 theater properties.

For the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, we recorded $5.1 million and $22.1 million, respectively, in reserves on contractual base rent for theater properties. Contractual rent reserves exclude reserves on contractually obligated reimbursements by our clients, which was equivalent to $1.4 million and $1.6 million, respectively.

At December 31, 2021, the receivables outstanding across the portfolio totaled $426.8 million, net of $74.0 million of reserves, and includes $231.9 million of straight-line rent receivable, net of $11.8 million of reserves.

We did not record any provisions for impairment on theater properties for the year ended December 31, 2021. See “Item 1A—Risk Factors” in Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 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 clients and our business, results of operations, financial condition and liquidity.

We distributed $1.17 billion in common dividends to stockholders in 2021, representing 78.5% of our AFFO of $1.49 billion.



Real Estate Portfolio Update

We own an actively managed, diversified portfolio of commercial properties under long-term, net lease agreements with a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 9.0 years. Our portfolio of commercial real estate has historically provided dependable rental revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of December 31, 2021, portfolio occupancy was 98.5% with 164 properties available for lease or sale, as compared to 98.8% as of September 30, 2021 and 97.9% as of December 31, 2020.

Initial weighted 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 December 31, 2021 for our definition of this metric. Contractual net operating income used in the calculation of initial weighted average cash lease yield includes approximately $5.3 million received as settlement credits for six properties as reimbursement of free rent periods for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and approximately $8.5 million received as settlement credits for 41 properties as reimbursement of free rent periods for the year ended December 31, 2021.

The three months and year ended December 31, 2021 includes £2.3 million and £7.0 million, respectfully, of investments in U.K. development properties,
converted at the applicable exchange rates on the funding dates.







(3)


Our clients occupying the new properties are 88.6% retail and 11.4% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 35% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the three months ended December 31, 2021 is from our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.







(4)


Our clients occupying the new properties are 83.6% retail and 16.4% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 40% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the year ended December 31, 2021 is from our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.



Same Store Rental Revenue

For purposes of comparability, same store rental revenue is presented on a constant currency basis using the exchange rate as of December 31, 2021 of 1.35 GBP/USD. None of the properties in Spain met our same store pool definition for the periods presented. In addition, the same store pool excludes properties assumed on November 1, 2021 as a result of our merger with VEREIT.

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 impacted by (reserve reversals) and reserves to rental revenue of $(5.6) million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 compared to $11.7 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, and $6.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 compared to $32.9 million for the year ended December 31, 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 months and year ended December 31, 2021 relative to the comparable periods for 2020 would have been 11.5% and 7.7%, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Markets



Capital Raising

During the three months ended December 31, 2021, we raised $1.72 billion from the sale of common stock at a weighted average price of $69.07 per share, primarily through our At-The-Market-Program.

In January 2022, we issued £250.0 million of 1.875% senior unsecured notes due January 2027 (the “January 2027 Notes”) and £250.0 million of 2.500% senior unsecured notes due January 2042 (the “January 2042 Notes”). The public offering price for the January 2027 Notes was 99.487% of the principal amount, for an effective semi-annual yield to maturity of 1.974%, and the public offering price for the January 2042 Notes was 98.445% of the principal amount, for an effective semi-annual yield to maturity of 2.584%. Combined, the new issues of the January 2027 Notes and the January 2042 Notes have a weighted average term of approximately 12.5 years and a weighted average effective semi-annual yield to maturity of approximately 2.28%.



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 December 31, 2021, the balance of borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility was $650.0 million. In addition, we had a cash balance of $258.6 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 December 31, 2021, we had $901.4 million in commercial paper borrowings.



Early Redemption of 4.650% Notes Due 2023

In December 2021, we completed the early redemption on all $750.0 million in principal amount of our outstanding 4.650% notes due August 2023, plus accrued and unpaid interest. As a result of the early redemption, we recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $46.4 million, or $0.09 per diluted common share, to net income available to common stockholders, Nareit-defined FFO and Normalized FFO in the three months ended December 31, 2021. Loss on extinguishment of debt is excluded in our calculation of AFFO.



Completion of Exchange Offers

In connection with our merger with VEREIT, in November 2021, we completed our debt exchange offer to exchange outstanding notes issued by VEREIT’s operating partnership, or VEREIT OP, totaling $4.65 billion in principal, for new notes issued by Realty Income, pursuant to which approximately 99.2% of the outstanding notes issued by VEREIT OP were exchanged for a like aggregate principal amount of the notes issued by Realty Income. The interest rate, interest payment dates, redemption terms and maturity of each series of Realty Income notes issued by Realty Income in the exchange offers were the same as those of the corresponding series of VEREIT notes exchanged.

We recorded reserves to rental revenue of $827,000 (of which $5.6 million was related to straight-line rent receivables), net of reserve reversals of $(4.8) million, for the three months ended December 31, 2021, $18.1 million (of which $3.3 million was related to straight-line receivables) for the three months ended December 31, 2020, $14.7 million (of which $4.5 million was related to straight-line rent receivables) for the year ended December 31, 2021 and $52.5 million (of which $8.4 million was related to straight-line receivables) for the year ended December 31, 2020. Unless otherwise specified, references to reserves recorded as a reduction of rental revenue include amounts reserved for in the current period, as well as unrecognized contractual rental revenue and unrecognized straight-line rental revenue for leases accounted for on a cash basis. References to reserve reversals recorded as increases to rental revenue include amounts where the accounting for recognition of rental revenue and straight-line rental revenue has been moved from the cash to the accrual basis.

Note:  All of these dividend yields are calculated as annualized dividends based on the last dividend paid in applicable time period divided by the closing price as of period end. Dividend yield sources: Nareit website and Bloomberg, except for the 1994 NASDAQ dividend yield which was sourced from Datastream / Thomson Financial.

 







(1) 


FTSE Nareit US Equity REIT Index, as per Nareit website.







(2) 


Calculated as the difference between the closing stock price as of period end less the closing stock price as of previous period, plus dividends paid in period, divided by closing stock price as of end of previous period. Does not include reinvestment of dividends for the annual percentages.







(3) 


Includes reinvestment of dividends. Source: Nareit website and Factset.







(4)


Price only index, does not include dividends as NASDAQ did not report total return metrics for the entirety of the measurement period. Source: Factset.







(5)


All of these Compound Average Annual Total Return rates are calculated in the same manner for each period from Realty Income’s NYSE listing on October 18, 1994 through December 31, 2021, and (except for NASDAQ) assume reinvestment of dividends. Past performance does not guarantee future performance.  Realty Income presents this data for informational purposes only and makes no representation about its future performance or how it will compare in performance to other indices in the future.
