                                  THE COMPANY

Realty Income, The Monthly Dividend Company®, is an S&P 500 company and member
of the S&P 500 Dividend Aristocrats® index for having increased its dividend
every year for over 25 consecutive years. We invest in people and places to
deliver dependable monthly dividends that increase over time. The Company is
structured as a real estate investment trust ("REIT"), requiring us annually to
distribute at least 90% of our taxable income (excluding net capital gains) in
the form of dividends to its stockholders. The monthly dividends are supported
by the cash flow generated from real estate owned under long-term net lease
agreements with our commercial clients.

Realty Income was founded in 1969 and listed on the New York Stock Exchange
(NYSE: O) in 1994. Over the past 53 years, Realty Income has been acquiring and
managing freestanding commercial properties that generate rental revenue under
long-term net lease agreements with our commercial clients.

At June 30, 2022, we owned a diversified portfolio:


•Consisting of 11,427 properties;
•With an occupancy rate of 98.9%(1), or 11,295 properties leased and 132
properties available for lease or sale;
•With clients doing business in 72 separate industries;
•Located in all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom (U.K.) and
Spain;
•With approximately 218.5 million square feet of leasable space;
•With a weighted average remaining lease term (excluding rights to extend a
lease at the option of the client) of approximately 8.8 years; and
•With an average leasable space per property of approximately 19,120 square
feet; approximately 12,840 square feet per retail property and approximately
240,450 square feet per industrial property.

(1) Excludes four properties with ancillary leases only, such as cell towers and
billboards, of which one was vacant.


Of the 11,427 properties in the portfolio at June 30, 2022, 11,289, or 98.8%,
are single-client properties, of which 11,158 were leased, and the remaining are
multi-client properties.

Unless otherwise specified, references to rental revenue in the Management's
Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations are
exclusive of reimbursements from clients for recoverable real estate taxes and
operating expenses totaling $41.0 million and $23.5 million for the three months
ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively, and $85.0 million and $45.2 million
for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Investment Philosophy
We believe that owning an actively managed, diversified portfolio of commercial
properties under long-term, net lease agreements produces consistent and
predictable income. A net lease typically requires the client to be responsible
for monthly rent and certain property operating expenses including property
taxes, insurance, and maintenance. In addition, clients of our properties
typically pay rent increases based on: (1) fixed increases, (2) increases tied
to inflation (typically subject to ceilings), or (3) additional rent calculated
as a percentage of the clients' gross sales above a specified level. We believe
that a portfolio of properties under long-term net lease agreements with our
commercial clients generally produces a more predictable income stream than many
other types of real estate portfolios, while continuing to offer the potential
for growth in rental income.

Diversification is also a key component of our investment philosophy. We believe
that diversification of the portfolio by client, industry, geography, and
property type leads to more consistent and predictable income for our
stockholders by reducing vulnerability that can come with any single
concentration. Our investment activities have led to a diversified property
portfolio that, as of June 30, 2022, consisted of 11,427 properties located in
all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, the U.K. and Spain, and doing business in 72
industries. None of the 72 industries represented in our property portfolio
accounted for more than 9.2% of our annualized contractual rent as of June 30,
2022.

With expanded scale from our merger with VEREIT, we hope to serve our existing
clients better and to partner with new clients that require the larger and more
diversified balance sheet we now provide. Equally, as we look to continue to
expand geographically across Europe, we hope to partner with new multinational
clients that seek a real estate partner with an expanding geographic footprint.

Investment Strategy
We seek to invest in high-quality real estate that our clients consider
important to the successful operation of their businesses. We generally seek to
acquire commercial real estate that has some or all of the following
characteristics:

•Properties in markets or locations important to our clients;
•Properties that we deem to be profitable for our clients (e.g., retail stores
or revenue generating sites);
•Properties with strong demographic attributes relative to the specific business
drivers of our clients;
•Properties with real estate valuations that approximate replacement costs;
•Properties with rental or lease payments that approximate market rents for
similar properties;
•Properties that can be purchased with the simultaneous execution or assumption
of long-term net lease agreements, offering both current income and the
potential for future rent increases;
•Properties that leverage relationships with clients, sellers, investors, or
developers as part of a long-term strategy; and
•Properties that leverage our proprietary insights, including predictive
analytics (e.g., through the selection of locations and geographic markets we
expect to remain strong or strengthen in the future).

We typically seek to invest in properties owned or leased by clients that are
already or could become leaders in their respective businesses supported by
mechanisms including (but not limited to) occupancy of prime real estate
locations, pricing, merchandise assortment, service, quality, economies of
scale, consumer branding, e-commerce, and advertising. In addition, we
frequently acquire large portfolios of properties net leased to different
clients operating in a variety of industries. We have an internal team dedicated
to sourcing such opportunities, often using our relationships with various
clients, owners/developers, brokers and advisers to uncover and secure
transactions. We also undertake thorough research and analysis to identify what
we consider to be appropriate property locations, clients, and industries for
investment. This research expertise is instrumental to uncovering net lease
opportunities in markets where we believe we can add value.

In selecting potential investments, we generally look for clients with the
following attributes:


•Reliable and sustainable cash flow, including demonstrated economic resiliency;
•Revenue and cash flow from multiple sources;
•Are willing to sign a long-term lease (10 or more years); and
•Are large owners and users of real estate.

From a retail perspective, our investment strategy is to target clients that
have a service, non-discretionary, and/or low-price-point component to their
business. Our investments are usually with clients who have demonstrated
resiliency to e-commerce or have a strong omni channel retail strategy, uniting
brick-and-mortar and mobile browsing, both of which reflect the continued
importance of last mile retail, the movement of goods to their final
                                      -33-

destination, real estate as part of a customer experience and supply chain
strategy. Our overall investments (including last mile retail) are driven by an
optimal portfolio strategy that, among other considerations, targets allocation
ranges by asset class and industry. We review our strategy periodically and
stress test our portfolio in a variety of positive and negative economic
scenarios to ensure we deliver consistent earnings growth and value creation
across economic cycles. As a result of the execution of this strategy,
approximately 93% of our annualized retail contractual rent on June 30, 2022, is
derived from our clients with a service, non-discretionary, and/or low price
point component to their business. From a non-retail perspective, we target
industrial properties leased to industry leaders, the majority of which are
investment grade rated companies. We believe these characteristics enhance the
stability of the rental revenue generated from these properties.

After applying this investment strategy, we pursue those transactions where we
believe we can achieve an attractive investment spread over our cost of capital
and favorable risk-adjusted returns. We will continue to evaluate all
investments for consistency with our objective of owning net lease assets.

Underwriting Strategy
In order to be considered for acquisition, properties must meet stringent
underwriting requirements. We have established a four-part analysis that
examines each potential investment based on:


•The aforementioned overall real estate characteristics, including demographics,
replacement cost, and comparative rental rates;
•Industry, client (including credit profile), and market conditions;
•Store profitability for retail locations if profitability data is available;
and
•The importance of the real estate location to the operations of the clients'
business.

We believe the principal financial obligations for most of our clients typically
include their bank and other debt, payment obligations to employees, suppliers,
and real estate lease obligations. Because we typically own the land and
building in which a client conducts its business or which are critical to the
client's ability to generate revenue, we believe the risk of default on a
client's lease obligation is less than the client's unsecured general
obligations. It has been our experience that clients must retain their
profitable and critical locations in order to survive. Therefore, in the event
of reorganization, we believe they are less likely to reject a lease of a
profitable or critical location because this would terminate their right to use
the property.

Thus, as the property owner, we believe that we will fare better than unsecured
creditors of the same client in the event of reorganization. If a property is
rejected by our client during reorganization, we own the property and can either
lease it to a new client or sell the property. In addition, we believe that the
risk of default on real estate leases can be further mitigated by monitoring the
performance of our clients' individual locations and considering whether to
proactively sell locations that meet our criteria for disposition.

We conduct comprehensive reviews of the business segments and industries in
which our clients operate. Prior to entering into any transaction, our research
department conducts a review of a client's credit quality. The information
reviewed may include reports and filings, including any public credit ratings,
financial statements, debt and equity analyst reports, and reviews of corporate
credit spreads, stock prices, market capitalization, and other financial
metrics. We conduct additional due diligence, including additional financial
reviews of the client, and continue to monitor our clients' credit quality on an
ongoing basis by reviewing the available information previously discussed, and
providing summaries of these findings to management.

At June 30, 2022, approximately 43% of our total portfolio annualized
contractual rent comes from properties leased to our investment grade clients,
their subsidiaries or affiliated companies. At June 30, 2022, our top 20 clients
(based on percentage of total portfolio annualized contractual rent) represented
approximately 42% of our annualized rent and 12 of these clients have investment
grade credit ratings or are subsidiaries or affiliates of investment grade
companies.

Asset Management Strategy
In addition to pursuing new properties for investment, we seek to increase
earnings and dividends through active asset management.

Generally, our asset management efforts seek to achieve:

•Rent increases at the expiration of existing leases, when market conditions
permit;

                                      -34-
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of     Contents
•Optimum exposure to certain clients, industries, and markets through re-leasing
vacant properties and selectively selling properties;
•Maximum asset-level returns on properties that are re-leased or sold;
•Additional value creation from the existing portfolio by enhancing individual
properties, pursuing alternative uses, and deriving ancillary revenue; and
•Investment opportunities in new asset classes for the portfolio.

We continually monitor our portfolio for any changes that could affect the
performance of our clients, our clients’ industries, and the real estate
locations in which we have invested. We also regularly analyze our portfolio
with a view towards optimizing its returns and enhancing its overall credit
quality. Our active asset management strategy pursues asset sales when we
believe the reinvestment of the sale proceeds will:

•Generate higher returns;
•Enhance the credit quality of our real estate portfolio;
•Extend our average remaining lease term; and/or
•Strategically decrease client, industry, or geographic concentration.

The active management of the portfolio is an essential component of our
long-term strategy of maintaining high occupancy.


Impact of Real Estate and Credit Markets
In the commercial real estate market, property prices generally continue to
fluctuate. Likewise, during certain periods, including the current market, the
global credit markets have experienced significant price volatility,
dislocations, and liquidity disruptions, which may impact our access to and cost
of capital. We continually monitor the commercial real estate and global credit
markets carefully and, if required, will make decisions to adjust our business
strategy accordingly.

                              RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

Increases in Monthly Dividends to Common Stockholders
We have continued our 53-year policy of paying monthly dividends. In addition,
we increased the dividend three times during 2022. As of July 2022, we have paid
99 consecutive quarterly dividend increases and increased the dividend 116 times
since our listing on the NYSE in 1994.

The following table summarizes our dividend increases in 2022:

                                 Month         Month       Dividend       Increase
2022 Dividend increases       Declared          Paid      per share      per share
1st increase                  Dec 2021      Jan 2022        $0.2465        $0.0005
2nd increase                  Mar 2022      Apr 2022        $0.2470        $0.0005
3rd increase                  Jun 2022      Jul 2022        $0.2475        $0.0005

The dividends paid per share during the six months ended June 30, 2022, totaled
approximately $1.4805, as compared to approximately $1.4085 during the six
months ended June 30, 2021, an increase of $0.072, or 5.1%.


The monthly dividend of $0.2475 per share represents a current annualized
dividend of $2.9700 per share, and an annualized dividend yield of approximately
4.4% based on the last reported sale price of our common stock on the NYSE of
$68.26 on June 30, 2022. Although we expect to continue our policy of paying
monthly dividends, we cannot guarantee that we will maintain our current level
of dividends, that we will continue our pattern of increasing dividends per
share, or what our actual dividend yield will be in any future period.

(1)The initial weighted average cash lease yield for a property is generally
computed as estimated contractual first year cash net operating income, which,
in the case of a net leased property, is equal to the aggregate cash base rent
for the first full year of each lease, divided by the total cost of the
property. Since it is possible that a client could default on the payment of
contractual rent, we cannot provide assurance that the actual return on the
funds invested will remain at the percentages listed above. Contractual net
operating income used in the calculation of initial average cash yield includes
approximately $2.5 million and $6.8 million, received as settlement credits as
reimbursement of free rent periods for the three and six months ended June 30,
2022, respectively.

In the case of a property under development or expansion, the contractual lease
rate is generally fixed such that rent varies based on the actual total
investment in order to provide a fixed rate of return. When the lease does not
provide for a fixed rate of return on a property under development or expansion,
the initial average cash lease yield is computed as follows: estimated cash net
operating income (determined by the lease) for the first full year of each
lease, divided by our projected total investment in the property, including
land, construction and capitalized interest costs.
(2)None of our investments during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022,
caused any one client to be 10% or more of our total assets at June 30, 2022.
(3)Includes two U.K. development properties that represent investments of
£13.2 million and £14.9 million Sterling during the three and six months ended
June 30, 2022, respectively, converted at the applicable exchange rate on the
funding date.
(4)Our clients occupying the new properties are 89.2% retail and 10.8%
industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 39% of the rental revenue
generated from acquisitions during the three months ended June 30, 2022, is from
our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.
(5)Our clients occupying the new properties are 87.4% retail and 12.6%
industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 33% of the rental revenue
generated from acquisitions during the six months ended June 30, 2022, is from
our investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.

Announcement of Transaction with Wynn Resorts
In February 2022, we announced that we had signed a definitive agreement with
Wynn Resorts, Limited to acquire the Encore Boston Harbor Resort and Casino for
$1.7 billion under a long-term net lease agreement. This sale-leaseback
transaction, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2022, is
expected to be executed at a 5.9% initial weighted average cash lease yield and
includes an initial lease term of 30 years with annual rent growth of 1.75% for
the first ten years and the greater of 1.75% or CPI (capped at 2.5%) over the
remaining lease term. The lease also includes an additional 30-year option to
renew upon expiration. This transaction is subject to numerous uncertainties,
including various closing conditions, and there can be no assurance that the
transaction will be consummated on the terms or timetable currently
contemplated, or at all.

Portfolio Discussion

 Leasing Results
At June 30, 2022, we had 132 properties available for lease out of 11,427
properties in our portfolio, representing a 98.9% occupancy rate based on the
number of properties in the portfolio. Our property-level occupancy rate at June

towers and billboards, of which one was vacant.

(1)Includes scheduled and unscheduled expirations (including leases rejected in
bankruptcy), as well as future expirations resolved in the periods indicated
above.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022, the annual new rent on re-leases
was $35.51 million, as compared to the previous annual rent of $33.63 million on
the same units, representing a rent recapture rate of 105.6% on the units
re-leased. We re-leased four units to new clients without a period of vacancy,
and seven units to new clients after a period of vacancy.

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the annual new rent on re-leases was
$67.20 million, as compared to the previous annual rent of $63.47 million on the
same units, representing a rent recapture rate of 105.9% on the units re-leased.
We re-leased seven units to new clients without a period of vacancy, and 19
units to new clients after a period of vacancy.

As part of our re-leasing costs, we pay leasing commissions to unrelated,
third-party real estate brokers consistent with the commercial real estate
industry standard, and sometimes provide rent concessions to our clients. We do
not consider the collective impact of the leasing commissions or rent
concessions to our clients to be material to our financial position or results
of operations.

At June 30, 2022, our average annualized contractual rent was approximately
$14.13 per square foot on the 11,295 leased properties in our portfolio. At June
30, 2022, we classified 36 properties, with a carrying amount of $66.3 million,
as real estate and lease intangibles held for sale, net on our balance
sheet. The expected sale of these properties does not represent a strategic
shift that will have a major effect on our operations and financial results and
is consistent with our existing disposition strategy to further enhance our real
estate portfolio and maximize portfolio returns.

Investments in Existing Properties
During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we capitalized costs of $25.8
million on existing properties in our portfolio, consisting of $0.8 million for
re-leasing costs, $2.8 million for recurring capital expenditures, and
$22.2 million for non-recurring building improvements. During the six months
ended June 30, 2022, we capitalized costs of $37.8 million on existing
properties in our portfolio, consisting of $3.2 million re-leasing costs,
$2.8 million for recurring capital expenditures, and $31.8 million for
non-recurring building improvements.

The majority of our building improvements relate to roof repairs, HVAC
improvements, and parking lot resurfacing and replacements. The amounts of our
capital expenditures can vary significantly, depending on the rental market,
credit worthiness of our clients, the lease term and the willingness of our
clients to pay higher rents over the terms of the leases.

We define recurring capital expenditures as mandatory and recurring landlord
capital expenditure obligations that have a limited useful life. We define
non-recurring capital expenditures as property improvements in which we invest
additional capital that extend the useful life of the properties.

Sale of Unconsolidated Joint Ventures
In July 2022, six of the seven properties owned by our industrial partnerships
acquired in connection with the VEREIT merger were sold, with the seventh
property expected to be sold later in the third quarter of 2022. The gross
purchase price for the properties is $905.0 million and our proportionate share
of net proceeds (after mortgage defeasance and closing costs) is estimated to be
approximately $120 million.

Equity Capital Raising
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, we raised $1.1 billion and
$1.7 billion of gross proceeds from the sale of common stock, respectively, at a
weighted average price of $67.13 and $66.51 per share, respectively, primarily
through proceeds from the sale of common stock through our prior ATM program. In
June 2022, we replaced our prior ATM program, which authorized us to offer and
sell up to 69,088,433 shares of common stock, with a new equity distribution
program, pursuant to which we may offer and sell up to 120,000,000 shares of
common stock (1) by us to, or through, a consortium of banks acting as our sales
agents or (2) by a consortium of banks acting as forward sellers on behalf of
any forward purchasers contemplated thereunder, in each case by means of
ordinary brokers' transactions on the NYSE at prevailing market prices or at
negotiated prices.
Note Issuances
In June 2022, we closed on the previously announced private placement of £600.0
million of senior unsecured notes, which included £140.0 million of notes due
2030, £345.0 million of notes due 2032, and £115.0 million of notes due 2037.
The combined notes have a weighted average tenor of approximately 10.5 years,
and a weighted average fixed interest rate of 3.22%.

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%.

New, Expanded Revolving Credit Facility
In April 2022, we entered a new $4.25 billion unsecured credit facility to amend
and restate our previous $3.0 billion unsecured credit facility, which was due
to expire in March 2023. The new revolving credit facility matures in June 2026
and includes two six-month extensions that can be exercised at our option.
Similar to our previous revolving credit facility, the new revolving credit
facility also has a $1.0 billion expansion feature, which is subject to
obtaining lender commitments. As of June 30, 2022, the balance of borrowings
outstanding under our new revolving credit facility was $219.1 million, and we
had a cash balance of $172.8 million.

Expansion of Commercial Paper Program
During July 2022, our U.S. Dollar-denominated unsecured commercial paper program
was amended to increase the maximum aggregate amount of outstanding notes from
$1.0 billion to $1.5 billion. We also established a new Euro-denominated
unsecured commercial paper program, which permits us to issue additional
unsecured commercial notes up to a maximum aggregate amount of $1.5 billion (or
foreign currency equivalent), which may be issued in U.S. Dollars or various
other foreign currencies, including but not limited to, Euros, Sterling, Swiss
Francs, Yen, Canadian Dollars, and Australian Dollars, in each case, pursuant to
customary terms in the European commercial paper note market. The notes offered
under our European commercial paper program will rank pari passu with all of our
other unsecured senior indebtedness, including borrowings under our revolving
credit facility and our term loan, and our outstanding senior notes, including
under our U.S. Dollar-denominated commercial paper program. We use our unsecured
revolving credit facility as a liquidity backstop for the repayment of the notes
issued under these programs.

Our financial results during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 were
impacted by merger and integration-related costs of $2.7 million and
$9.2 million, respectively, related to our merger with VEREIT. Our financial
results in 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, and $13.3 million of merger and
integration-related costs related to our merger with VEREIT.

See our discussion of FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO (which are not financial

reconciliation of net income available to common stockholders to FFO and
Normalized FFO, and AFFO.

                        LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Capital Philosophy
Historically, we have met our long-term capital needs by issuing common stock,
long-term unsecured notes and bonds, term loans under our revolving credit
facility, and preferred stock. Over the long term, we believe that common stock
should be the majority of our capital structure; however, we may also raise
funds from debt or other equity securities. We may issue common stock when we
believe that our share price is at a level that allows for the proceeds of any
offering to be accretively invested into additional properties. In addition, we
may issue common stock to permanently finance properties that were initially
financed by our revolving credit facility, commercial paper program, or debt
securities. However, we cannot assure you that we will have access to the
capital markets at all times and at terms that are acceptable to us.

Our primary cash obligations, for the current year and subsequent years, are
included in the "Table of Obligations," which is presented later in this
section. We expect to fund our operating expenses and other short-term liquidity
requirements, including property acquisitions and development costs, payment of
principal and interest on our outstanding indebtedness, property improvements,
re-leasing costs and cash distributions to common stockholders, primarily
through cash provided by operating activities, borrowings on our credit facility
and under our commercial paper program and through public securities offerings.
As of June 30, 2022, there are approximately $1.9 billion of obligations
becoming due through the remainder of 2022, which we expect to fund through a
combination of cash
                                      -39-
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of     Contents
flows from operations, issuances of common stock or debt, and additional
borrowings under our revolving credit facility and rolling over borrowings under
our commercial paper program.

We may choose to mitigate our financial exposure to exchange rate risk for
properties acquired outside the U.S. through the issuance of debt securities
denominated in the same local currency and through currency derivatives. We may
leave a portion of our foreign cash flow unhedged to reinvest in additional
properties in the same local currency.

Conservative Capital Structure
We believe that our stockholders are best served by a conservative capital
structure. Therefore, we seek to maintain a conservative debt level on our
balance sheet and solid interest and fixed charge coverage ratios. At June 30,
2022, our total outstanding borrowings of senior unsecured notes and bonds, term
loan, mortgages payable, revolving credit facility and commercial paper were
$15.82 billion, or approximately 27.3% of our total market capitalization of
$58.05 billion.

We define our total market capitalization at June 30, 2022, as the sum of:


•Shares of our common stock outstanding of 617,564,272, plus total common units
outstanding of 1,060,709, multiplied by the last reported sales price of our
common stock on the NYSE of $68.26 per share on June 30, 2022, or $42.23
billion;
•Outstanding borrowings of $219.1 million on our revolving credit facility;
•Outstanding borrowings of $950.0 million on our commercial paper program;
•Outstanding mortgages payable of $928.9 million, excluding net mortgage
premiums of $19.2 million and deferred financing costs of $1.0 million;
•Outstanding borrowings of $250.0 million on our term loan, excluding deferred
financing costs of $344,000;
•Outstanding senior unsecured notes and bonds of $13.39 billion, including
Sterling-denominated notes of £2.57 billion, and excluding unamortized net
premiums of $257.0 million and deferred financing costs of $58.7 million; and
•Our proportionate share of outstanding debt from unconsolidated entities of
$86.0 million, excluding premiums and deferred financing costs.

Universal Shelf Registration
In June 2021, we filed a shelf registration statement with the SEC, which is
effective for a term of three years and will expire in June 2024. In accordance
with SEC rules, the amount of securities to be issued pursuant to this shelf
registration statement was not specified when it was filed and there is no
specific dollar limit. The securities covered by this registration statement
include (1) common stock, (2) preferred stock, (3) debt securities,
(4) depositary shares representing fractional interests in shares of preferred
stock, (5) warrants to purchase debt securities, common stock, preferred stock,
or depositary shares, and (6) any combination of these securities. We may
periodically offer one or more of these securities in amounts, prices and on
terms to be announced when and if these securities are offered. The specifics of
any future offerings, along with the use of proceeds of any securities offered,
will be described in detail in a prospectus supplement, or other offering
materials, at the time of any offering.

At-the-Market ("ATM") Program
Under our ATM program, up to 120,000,000 shares of common stock may be offered
and sold (1) by us to, or through, a consortium of banks acting as our sales
agents or (2) by a consortium of banks acting as forward sellers on behalf of
any forward purchasers contemplated thereunder, in each case by means of
ordinary brokers' transactions on the NYSE at prevailing market prices or at
negotiated prices. Our ATM program replaced our prior ATM program in June 2022,
which previously authorized us to offer and sell up to 69,088,433 shares of
common stock. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we issued 15,899,972
shares, which were sold pursuant to forward sale confirmations, and raised
approximately $1.07 billion of gross proceeds under the prior ATM program.
During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we issued 25,973,181 shares and
raised approximately $1.73 billion of gross proceeds under the prior ATM
program. As of June 30, 2022, there were no open forward sale confirmations and
we had 120,000,000 shares remaining for future issuance under our ATM program.
We anticipate maintaining the availability of our ATM program in the future,
including the replenishment of authorized shares issuable thereunder.

Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan
Our Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan, or our DRSPP, provides our
common stockholders, as well as new investors, with a convenient and economical
method of purchasing our common stock and reinvesting their distributions. Our
DRSPP also allows our current stockholders to buy additional shares of common
stock by reinvesting all or a portion of their distributions. Our DRSPP
authorizes up to 26,000,000 common shares to be issued. Our DRSPP includes a
waiver approval process, allowing larger investors or institutions, per a formal
approval process, to purchase shares at a small discount, if approved by us. We
did not issue shares under the waiver approval process during the six months
ended June 30, 2022. During the three months ended June 30, 2022, we issued
43,260 shares and raised approximately $2.9 million under our DRSPP. During the
six months ended June 30, 2022, we issued 84,631 shares and raised approximately
$5.7 million under our DRSPP. At June 30, 2022, we had 11,250,748 shares
remaining for future issuance under our DRSPP program.

Revolving Credit Facility
In April 2022, we entered a new $4.25 billion unsecured revolving credit
facility to amend and restate our previous $3.0 billion unsecured revolving
credit facility, which was due to expire in March 2023. This new multicurrency
credit facility matures in June 2026, includes two six-month extensions that can
be exercised at our option and allows us to borrow in up to 14 currencies,
including U.S. dollars. Similar to our previous credit facility, our new
revolving credit facility also has a $1.0 billion expansion feature, which is
subject to obtaining lender commitments. Under the new revolving credit
facility, our current investment grade credit ratings provide for financing on
U.S. Dollar borrowings at the Secured Overnight Financing Rate ("SOFR"), plus
0.725% with a SOFR adjustment charge of 0.10% and a revolving credit facility
fee of 0.125%, for all-in pricing of 0.95% over SOFR and British Pound Sterling
at the Sterling Overnight Indexed Average ("SONIA"), plus 0.725% with a SONIA
adjustment charge of 0.0326% and a revolving credit facility fee of 0.125%, for
all-in pricing of 0.8826% over SONIA.

The borrowing rate is subject to an interest rate floor and may change if our
investment grade credit ratings change. We also have other interest rate options
available to us in different currencies as well. Our new credit facility is
unsecured and, accordingly, we have not pledged any assets as collateral for
this obligation.

At June 30, 2022, we had a borrowing capacity of $4.03 billion available on our
new revolving credit facility and an $219.1 million outstanding balance. The
weighted average interest rate on borrowings under our revolving credit facility
during the six months ended June 30, 2022, was 1.5% per annum. We must comply
with various financial and other covenants in our credit facility. At June 30,
2022, we were in compliance with these covenants. We expect to use our credit
facility to acquire additional properties and for other general corporate
purposes. Any additional borrowings will increase our exposure to interest rate
risk.

Commercial Paper Program
We have a U.S. dollar-denominated unsecured commercial paper program. Under the
terms of the program, we may issue unsecured commercial paper notes up to a
maximum aggregate amount outstanding of $1.0 billion. Borrowings under this
program generally mature in one year or less. At June 30, 2022, we had an
outstanding balance of $950.0 million. The weighted average interest rate on
borrowings under our commercial paper program was 0.8% for the six months ended
June 30, 2022. We use our $4.25 billion revolving credit facility as a liquidity
backstop for the repayment of the notes issued under the commercial paper
program.

The commercial paper borrowings outstanding at June 30, 2022 have matured and
will mature between July 2022 and January 2023. We generally use our credit
facility and commercial paper borrowings for the short-term financing of new
property acquisitions. Thereafter, we generally seek to refinance those
borrowings with the net proceeds of long-term or more permanent financing,
including the issuance of equity or debt securities. We cannot assure you,
however, that we will be able to obtain any such refinancing, or that market
conditions prevailing at the time of the refinancing will enable us to issue
equity or debt securities at acceptable terms. We regularly review our credit
facility and commercial paper program and may seek to extend, renew or replace
our credit facility and commercial paper program, to the extent we deem
appropriate.

During July 2022, our U.S. Dollar-denominated unsecured commercial paper program
was amended to increase the maximum aggregate amount of outstanding notes from
$1.0 billion to $1.5 billion. We also established a new Euro-denominated
unsecured commercial paper program, which permits us to issue additional
unsecured commercial notes up to a maximum aggregate amount of $1.5 billion (or
foreign currency equivalent), which may be issued in U.S. Dollars or various
other foreign currencies, in each case, pursuant to customary terms in the
European commercial paper note market.

Term Loan
In October 2018, in conjunction with entering into our current revolving credit
facility, we entered into a $250.0 million senior unsecured term loan, which
matures in March 2024. Prior to April 2022, borrowing under this term loan bore
interest at the current one-month LIBOR, plus 0.85%. In connection with entering
into our new unsecured credit facility in April 2022, the previous LIBOR
benchmark rate was replaced with daily SOFR, based on a five day lookback
period, and, due to our current credit ratings, is not subject to a credit
spread adjustment. In conjunction with this term loan, we also entered into an
interest rate swap, which was based off the one-month LIBOR through June 30,
2022. As of June 30, 2022, the interest rate swap was also converted to SOFR. As
of June 30, 2022, the effective interest rate on this term loan, after giving
effect to the interest rate swap, is 3.73%.

Mortgage Debt
As of June 30, 2022, we had $928.9 million of mortgages payable, of which £33.4
million related to a Sterling-denominated mortgage. The majority of our
mortgages payable were assumed in connection with our property acquisitions,
originally including ten mortgages from our merger with VEREIT in 2021 totaling
$839.1 million, and eight mortgages on 17 properties totaling $45.1 million
during the six months ended June 30, 2022. At June 30, 2022, we had net premiums
totaling $19.2 million on these mortgages and deferred financing costs of
$1.0 million. We expect to pay off the mortgages payable as soon as prepayment
penalties have declined to a level that would make it economically feasible to
do so. During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we made $226.0 million in
principal payments, including the repayment of seven mortgages in full for
$223.9 million (of which $168.2 million was paid off related to mortgages
assumed from our merger with VEREIT).

OP notes that remained outstanding, totaling $39.1 million in the aggregate,

the outstanding bonds of VEREIT Operating Partnership, L.P. ("VEREIT OP") in
connection with the consummation of the merger with VEREIT (the "Exchange
Offers").
(2) These notes were originally issued by VEREIT OP in December 2019 for the
principal amount of $600 million. The amount of Realty Income debt issued
through the Exchange Offers was $599 million, resulting from cancellations due
to late tenders that forfeited the early participation premium of $30 per $1,000
principal amount and cash paid in lieu of fractional shares.

All of our outstanding notes and bonds have fixed interest rates and contain
various covenants, with which we remained in compliance as of June 30, 2022.
Interest on our £400 million of 1.625% senior unsecured notes issued in October
2020, our £400 million of 1.125% senior unsecured notes issued in July 2021, our
£350 million of 1.750% senior unsecured notes also issued in July 2021, our £250
million of 1.875% senior unsecured notes issued in January 2022, and £250
million of 2.500% senior unsecured notes also issued in January 2022 is paid
annually. Interest on our remaining senior unsecured note and bond obligations
is paid semiannually.

The following is a summary of the key financial covenants for our senior
unsecured notes, as defined and calculated per the terms of our senior notes and
bonds. These calculations, which are not based on U.S. generally accepted
accounting principles ("GAAP") measurements, are presented to investors to show
our ability to incur additional debt under the terms of our senior notes and
bonds as well as to disclose our current compliance with such covenants and are
not measures of our liquidity or performance. The actual amounts as of June 30,
2022, are:
Note Covenants                                    Required                  

Actual

Limitation on incurrence of total debt            < 60% of adjusted assets     40.1  %
Limitation on incurrence of secured debt          < 40% of adjusted assets      2.5  %
Debt service coverage (trailing 12 months) (1)    > 1.5x                    

5.5x

Maintenance of total unencumbered assets > 150% of unsecured debt

258.2 %



(1)  Our debt service coverage ratio is calculated on a pro forma basis for the
preceding four-quarter period on the assumptions that: (i) the incurrence of any
debt (as defined in the covenants) incurred by us since the first day of such
four-quarter period and the application of the proceeds therefrom (including to
refinance other debt since the first day of such four-quarter period), (ii) the
repayment or retirement of any of our debt since the first day of such
four-quarter period, and (iii) any acquisition or disposition by us of any asset
or group since the first day of such four quarters had in each case occurred on
July 1, 2021 and subject to certain additional adjustments. Such pro forma ratio
has been prepared on the basis required by that debt service covenant, reflects
various estimates and assumptions and is subject to other uncertainties, and
therefore does not purport to reflect what our actual debt service coverage
ratio would have been had transactions referred to in clauses (i), (ii) and
(iii) of the preceding sentence occurred as of July 1, 2021, nor does it purport
to reflect our debt service coverage ratio for any future period. The following
is our calculation of debt service and fixed charge coverage at June 30, 2022
(in thousands, for trailing twelve months):
Net income available to common stockholders                                $             561,612

Plus: provision for taxes                                                                 41,846
Plus: depreciation and amortization                                                    1,345,260
Plus: provisions for impairment                                                           33,730
Plus: pro forma adjustments                                                              491,791

Cash Reserves
We are organized to operate as an equity REIT that acquires and leases
properties and distributes to stockholders, in the form of monthly cash
distributions, a substantial portion of our net cash flow generated from leases
on our properties. We intend to retain an appropriate amount of cash as working
capital. At June 30, 2022, we had cash and cash equivalents totaling $172.8
million, inclusive of £107.5 million Sterling and €12.3 million Euro.

We believe that our cash and cash equivalents on hand, cash provided from
operating activities, and borrowing capacity is sufficient to meet our liquidity
needs for the next twelve months. We intend, however, to use permanent or
long-term capital to fund property acquisitions and to repay future borrowings
under our credit facility and commercial paper program.

Credit Agency Ratings
The borrowing interest rates under our revolving credit facility are based upon
our ratings assigned by credit rating agencies. As of June 30, 2022, we were
assigned the following investment grade corporate credit ratings on our senior
unsecured notes and bonds: Moody's Investors Service has assigned a rating of A3
with a "stable" outlook and Standard & Poor's Ratings Group has assigned a
rating of A- with a "stable" outlook. In addition, we were
                                      -44-
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Table of     Contents
assigned the following ratings on our commercial paper at June 30, 2022: Moody's
Investors Service has assigned a rating of P-2 and Standard & Poor's Ratings
Group has assigned a rating of A-2.

Based on our credit agency ratings as of June 30, 2022, interest rates under our
new credit facility for U.S. borrowings would have been at the Secured Overnight
Financing Rate ("SOFR"), plus 0.725% with a SOFR adjustment charge of 0.10% and
a revolving credit facility fee of 0.125%, for all-in pricing of 0.95% over SOFR
and, for British Pound Sterling borrowings, at the Sterling Overnight Indexed
Average ("SONIA"), plus 0.725% with a SONIA adjustment charge of 0.0326% and a
revolving credit facility fee of 0.125%, for all-in pricing of 0.8826% over
SONIA. In addition, our new credit facility provides that the interest rates can
range between: (i) SOFR/SONIA, plus 1.40% if our credit rating is lower than
BBB-/Baa3 or our senior unsecured debt is unrated and (ii) SOFR/SONIA, plus
0.70% if our credit rating is A/A2 or higher. In addition, our credit facility
provides for a facility commitment fee based on our credit ratings, which range
from: (i) 0.30% for a rating lower than BBB-/Baa3 or unrated, and (ii) 0.10% for
a credit rating of A/A2 or higher.

We also issue senior debt securities from time to time and our credit ratings
can impact the interest rates charged in those transactions. If our credit
ratings or ratings outlook change, our cost to obtain debt financing could
increase or decrease. The credit ratings assigned to us could change based upon,
among other things, our results of operations and financial condition. These
ratings are subject to ongoing evaluation by credit rating agencies, and we
cannot assure you that our ratings will not be changed or withdrawn by a rating
agency in the future if, in its judgment, circumstances warrant. Moreover, a
rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold our debt securities,
preferred stock or common stock.

(1)The initial term of the credit facility expires in June 2026 and includes, at
our option, two six-month extensions. At June 30, 2022, there were $219.1
million borrowings under our revolving credit facility. Commercial paper program
outstanding at June 30, 2022 were $950.0 million, which have matured and will
mature between July 2022 and January 2023.
(2)Excludes non-cash net premiums recorded on notes payable of $257.0 million
and deferred financing costs of $58.7 million.
(3)Excludes deferred financing costs of $344,000.
(4)Excludes both non-cash net premiums recorded on the mortgages payable of
$19.2 million and deferred financing costs of $1.0 million.
(5)Interest on the term loan, notes, bonds, mortgages payable, credit facility
and commercial paper program has been calculated based on outstanding balances
at period end through their respective maturity dates.
(6)Realty Income currently pays the ground lessors directly for the rent under
the ground leases.
(7)Our clients, who are generally sub-clients under ground leases, are
responsible for paying the rent under these ground leases. In the event our
client fails to pay the ground lease rent, we are primarily responsible.
(8)"Other" consists of $678.6 million of commitments under construction
contracts, and $49.0 million for re-leasing costs, recurring capital
expenditures, and non-recurring building improvements.

Our credit facility, commercial paper program, term loan, and notes payable
obligations are unsecured. Accordingly, we have not pledged any assets as
collateral for these obligations.


Unconsolidated Investments
As a result of our merger with VEREIT, we assumed an equity method investment in
three unconsolidated entities. We are responsible to fund our proportionate
share of any operating cash deficits pursuant to the governance documents of the
applicable entities. There are no further material commitments related to these
investments at this time. The debt held by the unconsolidated entities is
secured by its properties, though is non-recourse to us with limited customary
exceptions which vary from loan to loan. In July 2022, six of the seven
properties owned by our industrial partnerships acquired in connection with the
VEREIT merger were sold, with the seventh property
                                      -45-

expected to be sold later in the third quarter of 2022. Our proportionate share
of net proceeds (after mortgage defeasance and closing costs) is estimated to be
approximately $120 million.

Dividend Policy
Distributions are paid monthly to holders of shares of our common stock.

Distributions are paid monthly to the limited partners holding common units of
Realty Income, L.P. each on a per unit basis that is generally equal to the
amount paid per share to our common stockholders.


In order to maintain our status as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, we
generally are required to distribute dividends to our stockholders aggregating
annually at least 90% of our taxable income (excluding net capital gains), and
we are subject to income tax to the extent we distribute less than 100% of our
taxable income (including net capital gains). In 2021, our cash distributions to
common stockholders totaled $1.17 billion, or approximately 149.4% of our
estimated taxable income of $783.3 million. Our estimated taxable income
reflects non-cash deductions for depreciation and amortization. Our estimated
taxable income is presented to show our compliance with REIT dividend
requirements and is not a measure of our liquidity or operating performance. We
intend to continue to make distributions to our stockholders that are sufficient
to meet this dividend requirement and that will reduce or eliminate our exposure
to income taxes. Furthermore, we believe our cash on hand and funds from
operations are sufficient to support our current level of cash distributions to
our stockholders. Our cash distributions to common stockholders in the six
months ended June 30, 2022, totaled $884.1 million, representing 76.0% of our
adjusted funds from operations available to common stockholders of approximately
$1.16 billion. In comparison, our cash distributions to common stockholders in
2021 totaled $1.17 billion, representing 78.5% of our adjusted funds from
operations available to common stockholders of $1.49 billion.

Future distributions will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors and
will depend on, among other things, our results of operations, FFO, Normalized
FFO, AFFO, cash flow from operations, financial condition, capital requirements,
the annual distribution requirements under the REIT provisions of the Internal
Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, our debt service requirements, and any other
factors the Board of Directors may deem relevant. In addition, our credit
facility contains financial covenants that could limit the amount of
distributions payable by us in the event of a default, and which prohibit the
payment of distributions on our common stock in the event that we fail to pay
when due (subject to any applicable grace period) any principal or interest on
borrowings under our credit facility.

Distributions of our current and accumulated earnings and profits for federal
income tax purposes generally will be taxable to stockholders as ordinary
income, except to the extent that we recognize capital gains and declare a
capital gains dividend, or that such amounts constitute "qualified dividend
income" subject to a reduced rate of tax. The maximum tax rate of non-corporate
taxpayers for "qualified dividend income" is generally 20%. In general,
dividends payable by REITs are not eligible for the reduced tax rate on
qualified dividend income, except to the extent that certain holding
requirements have been met with respect to the REIT's stock and the REIT's
dividends are attributable to dividends received from certain taxable
corporations (such as our taxable REIT subsidiaries) or to income that was
subject to tax at the corporate or REIT level (for example, if we distribute
taxable income that we retained and paid tax on in the prior taxable year).
However, non-corporate stockholders, including individuals, generally may deduct
up to 20% of dividends from a REIT, other than capital gain dividends and
dividends treated as qualified dividend income, for taxable years beginning
after December 31, 2017, and before January 1, 2026.

Distributions in excess of earnings and profits generally will first be treated
as a non-taxable reduction in the stockholders' basis in their stock, but not
below zero. Distributions in excess of that basis generally will be taxable as a
capital gain to stockholders who hold their shares as a capital asset.
Approximately 67.3% of the distributions to our common stockholders, made or
deemed to have been made in 2021, were classified as a return of capital for
federal income tax purposes.

                             RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Critical Accounting Policies
Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP
and are the basis for our discussion and analysis of financial condition and
results of operations. Preparing our consolidated financial statements requires
us to make a number of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported
amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. We believe
that we have made these estimates and assumptions in an appropriate manner and
in a way that accurately reflects our financial condition. We continually test
and evaluate these estimates and assumptions using our historical knowledge of
the business, as well as other factors, to ensure that they are reasonable for
reporting purposes. However, actual results may differ from these estimates and
assumptions. This summary should be read in conjunction with the more complete
discussion of our accounting policies and procedures included in note 2 to our
consolidated financial statements in our Annual Report on   Form 10-K   for the
year ended December 31, 2021.

In order to prepare our consolidated financial statements according to the
rules and guidelines set forth by GAAP, many subjective judgments must be made
with regard to critical accounting policies. Management must make significant
assumptions in determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities
assumed. When acquiring a property for investment purposes, we typically
allocate the cost of real estate acquired, inclusive of transaction costs, to:
(1) land, (2) building and improvements, and (3) identified intangible assets
and liabilities, based in each case on their relative estimated fair values.
Intangible assets and liabilities consist of above-market or below-market lease
value and the value of in-place leases, as applicable. Additionally,
above-market rents on certain leases under which we are a lessor are accounted
for as financing receivables amortizing over the lease term, while below-market
rents on certain leases under which we are a lessor are accounted for as prepaid
rent. In an acquisition of multiple properties, we must also allocate the
purchase price among the properties. The allocation of the purchase price is
based on our assessment of estimated fair value of the land, building and
improvements, and identified intangible assets and liabilities and is often
based upon the various characteristics of the market where the property is
located. In addition, any assumed mortgages are recorded at their estimated fair
values. The estimated fair values of our mortgages payable have been calculated
by discounting the future cash flows using applicable interest rates that have
been adjusted for factors, such as industry type, client investment grade,
maturity date, and comparable borrowings for similar assets. The use of
different assumptions in the allocation of the purchase price of the acquired
properties and liabilities assumed could affect the timing of recognition of the
related revenue and expenses.

Another significant judgment must be made as to if, and when, impairment losses
should be taken on our properties when events or a change in circumstances
indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. If
estimated future operating cash flows (undiscounted and without interest
charges) plus estimated disposition proceeds (undiscounted) are less than the
current book value of the property, a fair value analysis is performed and, to
the extent the estimated fair value is less than the current book value, a
provision for impairment is recorded to reduce the book value to estimated fair
value. Key inputs that we utilize in this analysis include projected rental
rates, estimated holding periods, capital expenditures, and property sales
capitalization rates. If a property is held for sale, it is carried at the lower
of carrying cost or estimated fair value, less estimated cost to sell. The
carrying value of our real estate is the largest component of our consolidated
balance sheets. Our strategy of primarily holding properties, long-term,
directly decreases the likelihood of their carrying values not being
recoverable, thus requiring the recognition of an impairment. However, if our
strategy, or one or more of the above assumptions were to change in the future,
an impairment may need to be recognized. If events should occur that require us
to reduce the carrying value of our real estate by recording provisions for
impairment, they could have a material impact on our results of operations.

2,647,226 square feet from properties with no land or building ownership.
(2) The same store rental revenue percentage increase for the six months ended
June 30, 2022 as compared with the same period in prior year is 3.0%.
(3) For purposes of comparability, same store rental revenue is presented on a
constant currency basis using the exchange rate as of June 30, 2022, of 1.22
GBP/USD. None of the properties in Spain met our same store pool definition for
the periods presented.
(4) Relates to the aggregate of (i) rental revenue from properties (285
properties comprising 5,721,191 square feet) that were available for lease
during part of 2022 or 2021, (ii) rental revenue for properties (13 properties
comprising 704,617 square feet) under development, and (iii) rental revenue that
is not contractual base rent such as lease termination settlements.
(5) Primarily consists of lease termination revenue and reimbursements for
tenant improvements.
(6) Amounts for the six months ended June 30, 2021 represent same store rental
revenue from VEREIT properties, which were not included in our financial
statements prior to the close of the merger on November 1, 2021.

For purposes of determining the same store rent property pool, we include all
properties that were owned for the entire year-to-date period, for both the
current and prior year, except for properties during the current or prior year
that; (i) were vacant at any time, (ii) were under development or redevelopment,
or (iii) were involved in eminent domain and rent was reduced. Beginning with
the first quarter of 2022, properties acquired through the merger with VEREIT
were considered under each element of our same store pool criterion, except for
the requirement that the property be owned for the full comparative period. If
the property was owned by VEREIT for the full comparative period and each of the
other criterion were met, the property was included in our same store property
pool. Each of the exclusions from the same store pool are separately addressed
within the applicable sentences above, explaining the changes in rental revenue
for the period.

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). Beginning with the first quarter of 2022,
properties acquired through the merger with VEREIT were considered under each
element of our Same Store Pool criterion, except for the requirement that the
property be owned for the full comparative period. If the property was owned by
VEREIT for the full comparative period and each of the other criterion were met,
the property was included in our same store property pool. 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, 2022 relative
to the comparable periods for 2021 would have been 2.6% and 3.5%, respectively.

Of the 11,427 properties in the portfolio at June 30, 2022, 11,289, or 98.8%,
are single-client properties and the remaining are multi-client properties. Of
the 11,289 single-client properties, 11,158, or 98.8%, were net leased at June
30, 2022.

Of the 11,769 in-place leases in the portfolio, which excludes 168 vacant units,
10,069, or 85.6%, were under leases that provide for increases in rents through:

•Base rent increases tied to inflation (typically subject to ceilings);
•Percentage rent based on a percentage of the clients’ gross sales;
•Fixed increases; or
•A combination of two or more of the above rent provisions.


Rent based on a percentage of our client's gross sales, or percentage rent, was
$2.2 million in the three months ended June 30, 2022, $596,000 in the three
months ended June 30, 2021, $6.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022,
and $1.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2021. We anticipate percentage
rent to be less than 1% of rental revenue for 2022.

At June 30, 2022, our portfolio of 11,427 properties was 98.9% leased with 132
properties available for lease, as compared to 98.5% leased with 164 properties
available for lease at December 31, 2021, and 98.5% leased with 103 properties
available for lease at June 30, 2021. It has been our experience that
approximately 1% to 4% of our property portfolio will be available for lease at
any given time; however, it is possible that the number of properties available
for lease or sale could increase in the future, given the nature of economic
cycles and other unforeseen global events, such as the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic
and the measures taken to limit its spread.

Rental Revenue (reimbursable)
A number of our leases provide for contractually obligated reimbursements from
clients for recoverable real estate taxes and operating expenses. The increase
in contractually obligated reimbursements by our clients in the periods
presented is primarily due to the growth of our portfolio due to acquisitions.

Other Revenue
Other revenue primarily relates to interest income recognized on financing
receivables for certain leases with above-market terms.

comprehensive income. Prior to this adjustment, general and administrative
expenses as a percentage of total revenue was 4.9% for the six months end June
30, 2021. There was no change for the three months ended June 30, 2021.

Depreciation and Amortization
The increase in depreciation and amortization for the three and six months ended
June 30, 2022, was primarily due to the acquisition of properties in 2021 and
the merger with VEREIT. As discussed in the sections entitled "Funds from
Operations Available to Common Stockholders (FFO) and Normalized Funds from
Operations Available to Common Stockholders (Normalized FFO)" and "Adjusted
Funds from Operations Available to Common Stockholders (AFFO)," depreciation and
amortization is a non-cash item that is added back to net income available to
common stockholders for our calculation of FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO.

The increase in interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30,
2022 is primarily due the January 2022 issuance of £500 million in principal of
Sterling denominated notes, the issuance of $4.65 billion in principal of notes
associated with the exchange offer and assumption of $839.1 million in principal
of mortgage debt, both associated with our merger with VEREIT in November 2021,
the July 2021 issuance of £750 million in principal of Sterling denominated
notes, and higher average balances and rates on the credit facility and
commercial paper borrowings, partially offset by the December 2021 early
redemption on all $750.0 million in principal of the 4.650% notes due August
2023, and the January 2021 early redemption on all $950.0 million in principal
of the 3.250% notes due October 2022.

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, the weighted average interest rate on
our:


•Revolving credit facility outstanding borrowings of $219.1 million was 1.5%;
•Commercial paper outstanding borrowings of $950.0 million was 0.8%;
•Term loan outstanding of $250.0 million (excluding deferred financing costs of
$344,000) was swapped to fixed at 3.7%;
•Mortgages payable of $928.9 million (excluding net premiums totaling $19.2
million and deferred financing costs of $1.0 million on these mortgages) was
4.8%;
•Notes and bonds payable of $13.39 billion (excluding net unamortized original
issue premiums of $257.0 million and deferred financing costs of $58.7 million)
was 3.3%; and
•Notes, bonds, mortgages, term loan, and credit facility and commercial paper
borrowings of $15.7 billion (excluding all net premiums and deferred financing
costs) was 3.1%.

Property Expenses (excluding reimbursable)
Property expenses (excluding reimbursable) consist of costs associated with
properties available for lease, non-net-leased properties and general portfolio
expenses. Expenses related to properties available for lease and non-net-leased
properties include, but are not limited to, property taxes, maintenance,
insurance, utilities, property inspections and legal fees. General portfolio
costs include, but are not limited to, insurance, legal, property inspections,
and title search fees. At June 30, 2022, 132 properties were available for lease
or sale, as compared to 164 at December 31, 2021, and 103 at June 30, 2021.

The increase in property expenses (excluding reimbursable) for the three and six
months ended June 30, 2022, is primarily due to the increase in portfolio size,
resulting in higher utilities, repairs and maintenance and property-related
legal expenses.

Property Expenses (reimbursable)
The increase in property expenses (reimbursable) for the three and six months
ended June 30, 2022, was primarily attributable to our increased portfolio size,
which contributed to higher operating expenses as a result of our acquisitions
in 2021 and the six months ended June 30, 2022, and an increase in ground lease
rent, insurance, and property taxes paid on behalf of our clients.

General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses are expenditures related to the operations
of our company, including employee-related costs, professional fees, and other
general overhead costs associated with running our business.

The increase in general and administrative expenses for the three and six months
ended June 30, 2022, is primarily due to higher payroll-related costs and higher
corporate-level professional fees, information technology, and corporate
occupancy costs associated with the growth of the company, including the merger
with VEREIT. At June 30, 2022, the headcount was 380 versus 239 at June 30,
2021.

Provisions for Impairment

Merger and Integration-related Costs
In conjunction with our merger with VEREIT, we incurred approximately
$2.7 million and $9.2 million of merger and integration-related transaction
costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively,
compared to approximately $13.3 million during the three and six months ended
June 30, 2021. Merger and integration-related costs consist of advisory fees,
attorney fees, accountant fees, SEC filing fees and additional incremental and
non-recurring costs necessary to convert data and systems, retain employees and
otherwise enable us to operate the acquired business or assets efficiently.

Foreign Currency and Derivative Gain, Net
We borrow in the functional currencies of the countries in which we invest. Net
foreign currency gain and loss are primarily related to the remeasurement of
intercompany debt from foreign subsidiaries. Gain and loss on foreign currency
are largely offset by derivative gain and loss.

Derivative gain and loss relates to mark-to-market adjustments on derivatives
that do not qualify for hedge accounting. Net derivative gain and loss are
primarily related to realized and unrealized short term currency exchange swaps.
Gain and loss on derivatives are largely offset by foreign currency gain and
loss.

In June 2022, following the early prepayment of our Sterling-denominated
intercompany loan receivable from our consolidated foreign subsidiaries, we
terminated the four cross-currency swaps used to hedge the foreign currency
exposure of the intercompany loan. As the hedge relationship has been terminated
and the future principal and interest associated with the prepaid intercompany
loan will not occur, $20.0 million was reclassified from accumulated other
comprehensive income, or AOCI, to Foreign currency and derivative gain, net
during the three months ended June 30, 2022. The reclassification from AOCI was
offset by $7.9 million in losses from the intercompany loan remeasurement on the
final exchange.

Loss on Extinguishment of Debt
In January 2021, we completed the early redemption on all $950.0 million in
principal amount of outstanding 3.250% notes due October 2022, plus accrued and
unpaid interest. As a result of the early redemption, we recognized a $46.5
million loss on extinguishment of debt for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Equity in Income and Impairment of Investment in Unconsolidated Entities
Equity in income of unconsolidated entities for the three and six months ended
June 30, 2022, relates to three equity method investments that were acquired in
our merger with VEREIT. The loss for the three and six months ended June 30,
2022 is primarily driven by an other than temporary impairment of $7.8 million.
There were no comparative investments for the three and six months ended June
30, 2021.

Other Income, Net
Certain miscellaneous non-recurring revenue is included in other income, net.
The increase in the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, is primarily
related to insurance proceeds received from property losses and other
non-recurring settlements.

Income Taxes
Income taxes are for city and state income and franchise taxes, and for
international income taxes accrued or paid by us and our subsidiaries. The
increase in income taxes for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, was
primarily attributable to our increased volume of U.K. investments, which
contributed to higher U.K. income taxes as compared to the same period in 2021.

The calculation to determine net income available to common stockholders
includes provisions for impairment, gain from the sale of properties, and

available to common stockholders.


The increase in net income available to common stockholders for the six months
ended June 30, 2022, compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021 primarily
related to the increase in the size of our portfolio due to the merger with
VEREIT, which closed on November 1, 2021. In addition, net income available to

six months ended June 30, 2021, was 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.


Adjusted Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real
Estate (Adjusted EBITDAre)
The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (Nareit) established
an EBITDA metric for real estate companies (i.e., EBITDA for real estate, or
EBITDAre) it believed would provide investors with a consistent measure to help
make investment decisions among REITs. Our definition of "Adjusted EBITDAre" is
generally consistent with the Nareit definition, other than our adjustments to
remove foreign currency and derivative gain and loss, excluding gain and loss
from the settlement of foreign currency forwards not designated as hedges,
(which is consistent with our previous calculations of "Adjusted EBITDA"). We
define Adjusted EBITDAre, a non-GAAP financial measure, for the most recent
quarter as earnings (net income) before (i) interest expense, including non-cash
loss (gain) on swaps, (ii) income and franchise taxes, (iii) gain on
extinguishment of debt, (iv) real estate depreciation and amortization,
(v) provisions for impairment, (vi) merger and integration-related costs,
(vii) gain on sales of real estate, (viii) foreign currency and derivative gain,
net (as described in the Adjusted Funds from Operations section), and (ix) our
proportionate share of interest expense and real estate depreciation and
amortization from unconsolidated entities. Our Adjusted EBITDAre may not be
comparable to Adjusted EBITDAre reported by other companies or as defined by
Nareit, and other companies may interpret or define Adjusted EBITDAre
differently than we do. Management believes Adjusted EBITDAre to be a meaningful
measure of a REIT's performance because it provides a view of our operating
performance, analyzes our ability to meet interest payment obligations before
the effects of income tax, depreciation and amortization expense, provisions for
impairment, gain on sales of real estate and other items, as defined above, that
affect comparability, including the removal of non-recurring and non-cash items
that industry observers believe are less relevant to evaluating the operating
performance of a company. In addition, EBITDAre is widely followed by industry
analysts, lenders, investors, rating agencies, and others as a means of
evaluating the operational cash generating capacity of a company prior to
servicing debt obligations. Management also believes the use of an annualized
quarterly Adjusted EBITDAre metric, which we refer to as Annualized Adjusted
EBITDAre, is meaningful because it represents our current earnings run rate for
the period presented. Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre and Annualized Pro Forma
Adjusted EBITDAre, as defined below, are also used to determine the vesting of
performance share awards granted to executive officers. Annualized Adjusted
EBITDAre should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to net
income as a measure of our operating performance. We define Annualized Pro Forma
Adjusted EBITDAre as Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre, subject to certain
adjustments to incorporate Adjusted EBITDAre from properties we acquired or
stabilized during the applicable quarter and to remove Adjusted EBITDAre from
properties we disposed of during the applicable quarter, and includes
transaction accounting adjustments in accordance with U.S. GAAP, giving pro
forma effect to all transactions as if they occurred at the beginning of the
applicable period. Our calculation includes all adjustments consistent with the
requirements to present Adjusted EBITDAre on a pro forma basis in accordance
with Article 11 of Regulation S-X. The Annualized Pro Forma Adjustments are
consistent with the debt service coverage ratio calculated under financial
covenants for our senior unsecured notes. We believe Annualized Pro Forma
Adjusted EBITDAre is a useful non-GAAP supplemental measure, as it excludes
properties that were no longer owned at the balance sheet date and includes the
annualized rent from properties acquired during the quarter. Management also
uses our ratios of net debt-to-Annualized Adjusted EBITDAre and net debt-to
Annualized Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDAre as measures of leverage in assessing our
financial performance, which is calculated as net debt (which we define as total
debt per the consolidated balance sheets, excluding deferred financing costs and
net premiums and discounts, but including our proportionate share on debt from
unconsolidated entities, less cash and cash equivalents), divided by annualized
quarterly Adjusted EBITDAre and annualized Pro Forma Adjusted EBITDAre,
respectively.

The following summarizes our FFO and Normalized FFO (dollars in millions, except

We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the National Association of
Real Estate Investment Trusts' definition, as net income available to common
stockholders, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, plus
provisions for impairments of depreciable real estate assets, and reduced by
gain on property sales. We define Normalized FFO, a non-GAAP financial measure,
as FFO excluding merger and integration-related costs related to our merger with
VEREIT. We define diluted FFO and diluted normalized FFO as FFO and normalized
FFO adjusted for dilutive noncontrolling interests.

We consider FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate supplemental measures of a
REIT's operating performance as they are based on a net income analysis of
property portfolio performance that adds back items such as depreciation and
impairments for FFO, and adds back merger and integration-related costs, for
Normalized FFO. The historical accounting convention used for real estate assets
requires straight-line depreciation of buildings and improvements, which implies
that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since
real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions,
presentations of operating results for a REIT, using historical accounting for
depreciation, could be less informative.

ADJUSTED FUNDS FROM OPERATIONS AVAILABLE TO COMMON STOCKHOLDERS (AFFO)

The following summarizes our AFFO (dollars in millions, except per share data):

We define AFFO, a non-GAAP measure, as FFO adjusted for unique revenue and
expense items, which we believe are not as pertinent to the measurement of our
ongoing operating performance. We define diluted AFFO as AFFO adjusted for
dilutive noncontrolling interests.

(1) All per share amounts are presented on a diluted per common share basis.


We consider AFFO to be an appropriate supplemental measure of our performance.
Most companies in our industry use a similar measurement, but they may use the
term "CAD" (for Cash Available for Distribution), "FAD" (for Funds Available for
Distribution) or other terms. Our AFFO calculations may not be comparable to
AFFO, CAD or FAD reported by other companies, and other companies may interpret
or define such terms differently than we do.

The following is a reconciliation of net income available to common stockholders
(which we believe is the most comparable GAAP measure) to Normalized FFO and
AFFO. Also presented is information regarding distributions paid to common
stockholders and the weighted average number of common shares used for the basic
and diluted computation per share (dollars in thousands, except per share
amounts):

We believe the non-GAAP financial measure AFFO provides useful information to
investors because it is a widely accepted industry measure of the operating
performance of real estate companies that is used by industry analysts and
investors who look at and compare those companies. In particular, AFFO provides
an additional measure to compare the operating performance of different REITs
without having to account for differing depreciation assumptions and other
unique revenue and expense items which are not pertinent to measuring a
particular company's on-going operating performance. Therefore, we believe that
AFFO is an appropriate supplemental performance metric, and that the most
appropriate GAAP performance metric to which AFFO should be reconciled is net
income available to common stockholders.

Presentation of the information regarding FFO, Normalized 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,
Normalized FFO, and AFFO in the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may
not be meaningful. Furthermore, FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO are not
necessarily indicative of cash flow available to fund cash needs and should not
be considered as alternatives to net income as an indication of our performance.
FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to
reviewing our cash flows from operating, investing, and financing activities. In
addition, FFO, Normalized FFO, and AFFO should not be considered as measures of
liquidity, our ability to make cash distributions, or our ability to pay
interest payments.

                         PROPERTY PORTFOLIO INFORMATION

At June 30, 2022, we owned a diversified portfolio:


•Consisting of 11,427 properties;
•With an occupancy rate of 98.9%(1), or 11,295 properties leased and 132
properties available for lease or sale;
•With clients doing business in 72 separate industries;
•Located in all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, the U.K. and Spain;
•With approximately 218.5 million square feet of leasable space;
•With a weighted average remaining lease term (excluding rights to extend a
lease at the option of the client) of approximately 8.8 years; and
•With an average leasable space per property of approximately 19,120 square
feet; approximately 12,840 square feet per retail property and approximately
240,450 square feet per industrial property.

(1) Excludes four properties with ancillary leases only, such as cell towers and
billboards, of which one was vacant.


At June 30, 2022, 11,295 properties were leased under net lease agreements. A
net lease typically requires the client to be responsible for monthly rent and
certain property operating expenses including property taxes, insurance, and
maintenance. In addition, clients of our properties typically pay rent increases
based on: (1) fixed increases, (2) increases tied to inflation (typically
subject to ceilings), or (3) additional rent calculated as a percentage of the
clients' gross sales above a specified level.

We define total portfolio annualized contractual rent as the monthly aggregate
cash amount charged to clients, inclusive of monthly base rent receivables, but
excluding percentage rent and reimbursements from clients, as of the balance
sheet date, multiplied by 12, excluding percentage rent. We believe total
portfolio annualized contractual revenue is a useful supplemental operating
measure, as it excludes properties that were no longer owned at the balance
sheet date and includes the annualized rent from properties acquired during the
quarter. Total portfolio annualized contractual rent has not been reduced to
reflect reserves and reserve reversals recorded as adjustments to GAAP rental
revenue in the periods presented and excludes unconsolidated entities.

We are engaged in a single business activity, which is the leasing of property
to clients, generally on a net basis. That business activity spans various
geographic boundaries and includes property types and clients engaged in various
industries. Even though we now only have a single segment, we believe our
investors continue to view diversification as a key component of our investment
philosophy and so we believe it is still important to present certain
information regarding our property portfolio classified according to the
business of the respective clients, expressed as a percentage of our total
portfolio annualized contractual rent:

                              IMPACT OF INFLATION

Leases generally provide for limited increases in rent as a result of fixed
increases, increases in the consumer price index, or retail price index in the
case of certain leases in the U.K. (typically subject to ceilings), or increases
in the clients' sales volumes. We expect that inflation will cause these lease
provisions to result in rent increases over time. During times when inflation is
greater than increases in rent, as provided for in the leases, rent increases
may not keep up with the rate of inflation.

Moreover, our use of net lease agreements tends to reduce our exposure to rising
property expenses due to inflation because the client is responsible for
property expenses. Inflation and increased costs may have an adverse impact on
our clients if increases in their operating expenses exceed increases in
revenue.
