PART I

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS.

AEI Income & Growth Fund XXII Limited Partnership (the "Partnership" or the "Registrant") is a limited partnership which was organized pursuant to the laws of the State of Minnesota on July 31, 1996.  The registrant is comprised of AEI Fund Management XXI, Inc. (“AFM”) as Managing General Partner, Robert P. Johnson, the Chief Executive Officer and sole director of AFM, as the Individual General Partner, and purchasers of partnership units as Limited Partners.  The Partnership offered for sale up to $24,000,000 of limited partnership interests (the "Units") (24,000 Units at $1,000 per Unit) pursuant to a registration statement effective January 10, 1997.  The Partnership commenced operations on May 1, 1997 when minimum subscriptions of 1,500 Limited Partnership Units ($1,500,000) were accepted.  The Partnership's offering terminated January 9, 1999 when the extended offering period ended. The Partnership received subscriptions for 16,917.222 Limited Partnership Units ($16,917,222).

The Partnership was organized to acquire existing and newly constructed commercial properties located in the United States, to lease such properties to tenants under net leases, to hold such properties and to eventually sell such properties.  From subscription proceeds, the Partnership purchased twelve properties, including partial interests in three properties, at a total cost of $13,363,547.  The balance of the subscription proceeds was applied to organization and syndication costs, working capital reserves and distributions, which represented a return of capital.  The properties are commercial, single tenant buildings leased under net leases.

The Partnership's properties were purchased without any indebtedness.  The Partnership will not finance properties in the future to obtain proceeds for new property acquisitions.  If it is required to do so, the Partnership may incur short-term indebtedness, which may be secured by a portion of the Partnership's properties, to finance day-to-day cash flow requirements (including cash flow necessary to repurchase Units).  The amount of borrowings that may be secured by the properties is limited in the aggregate to 10% of the purchase price of all properties.  The Partnership will not incur borrowings to pay distributions and will not incur borrowings while there is cash available for distributions.

The Partnership will hold its properties until the General Partners determine that the sale or other disposition of the properties is advantageous in view of the Partnership's investment objectives.  In deciding whether to sell properties, the General Partners will consider factors such as potential appreciation, net cash flow and income tax considerations.  The Partnership expects to sell some or all of its properties prior to its final liquidation and to reinvest the proceeds from such sales in additional properties.  The Partnership reserves the right, at the discretion of the General Partners, to either distribute proceeds from the sale of properties to the Partners or to reinvest such proceeds in additional properties, provided that sufficient proceeds are distributed to the Limited Partners to pay federal and state income taxes related to any taxable gain recognized as a result of the sale.

- 2 -

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS.  (Continued)

In May 2015, the Managing General Partner mailed a Consent Statement (Proxy) seeking the consent of the Limited Partners to continue the Partnership for an additional 60 months or to initiate the final disposition, liquidation and distribution of all of the Partnership’s properties and assets.  Approval of either proposal required the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the outstanding units.  On June 17, 2015, the votes were counted and neither proposal received the required majority vote.  As a result, the Partnership will not liquidate and will continue in operation until the Limited Partners vote to authorize the sale of all of the Partnership's properties or December 31, 2046, as stated in the Limited Partnership Agreement. However, in approximately five years, the Managing General Partner expects to again submit the question to liquidate to a vote by the Limited Partners.

Leases

Although there are variations in the specific terms of the leases, the following is a summary of the general terms of the Partnership’s leases.  The properties are leased to tenants under net leases, classified as operating leases.  Under a net lease, the tenant is responsible for real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs and operating expenses for the property.  For some leases, the Partnership is responsible for repairs to the structural components of the building, the roof, and the parking lot.  At the time the properties were acquired, the remaining primary lease terms varied from 10 to 20 years, except for the Staples store, which had a remaining primary term of 8.4 years.  The leases provide the tenants with two to five five-year renewal options subject to the same terms and conditions as the primary term.  The leases provide for base annual rental payments, payable in monthly installments, and contain rent clauses which entitle the Partnership to receive additional rent in future years based on stated rent increases.

Property Activity During the Last Three Years

As of December 31, 2016, the Partnership owned interests in seven properties with a total cost of $9,931,744.  During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Partnership sold two property interests and received net sale proceeds of $3,602,430, which resulted in a net gain of $1,540,914. As of December 31, 2019, the Partnership owned interests in five properties with a total cost of $6,671,214.

Major Tenants

During 2019, six tenants each contributed more than ten percent of the Partnership's total rental income.  The major tenants, in aggregate, contributed 93% of total rental income in 2019.  It is anticipated that, based on the minimum rental payments required under the leases, each major tenant will continue to contribute more than ten percent of rental income in 2020 with the following exception.  The tenant of the Tractor Supply Company store will not continue to be a major tenant because the property was sold in 2019.  Any failure of these major tenants could materially affect the Partnership's net income and cash distributions.

ITEM 1.  BUSINESS.  (Continued)

Competition

The Partnership is a minor factor in the commercial real estate business.  There are numerous entities engaged in the commercial real estate business which have greater financial resources than the Partnership.  At the time the Partnership elects to dispose of its properties, the Partnership will be in competition with other persons and entities to find buyers for its properties.

Employees

The Partnership has no direct employees.  Management services are performed for the Partnership by AEI Fund Management, Inc., an affiliate of AFM.

ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS.

Not required for a smaller reporting company.

ITEM 1B.  UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS.

Not required for a smaller reporting company.

ITEM 2.  PROPERTIES.

Investment Objectives

The Partnership's investment objectives are to acquire existing or newly-developed commercial properties throughout the United States that offer the potential for (i) regular cash distributions of lease income; (ii) growth in lease income through rent escalation provisions; (iii) preservation of capital through all-cash transactions; (iv) capital growth through appreciation in the value of properties; and (v) stable property performance through long-term lease contracts.  The Partnership does not have a policy, and there is no limitation, as to the amount or percentage of assets that may be invested in any one property.  However, to the extent possible, the General Partners attempt to diversify the properties by tenant and geographic location.

Description of Properties

The Partnership's properties are commercial, single tenant buildings.  The properties were acquired on a debt-free basis and are leased to tenants under net leases, classified as operating leases.  The Partnership holds an undivided fee simple interest in the properties.

The Partnership's properties are subject to the general competitive conditions incident to the ownership of single tenant investment real estate.  Since each property is leased under a long‑term lease, there is little competition until the Partnership decides to sell the property.  At this time, the Partnership will be competing with other real estate owners, on both a national and local level, in attempting to find buyers for the properties.  In the event of a tenant default, the Partnership would be competing with other real estate owners, who have property vacancies, to attract a new tenant to lease the property.  The Partnership's tenants operate in industries that are competitive and can be affected by factors such as changes in regional or local economies, seasonality and changes in consumer preference.

(1)  Does not include acquisition costs that were expensed.

The properties listed above with a partial ownership percentage are owned with the following affiliated entities:  Advance Auto Parts store (AEI Income & Growth Fund 25 LLC); Best Buy store (AEI Income & Growth Fund 24 LLC and AEI Income & Growth Fund 27 LLC); Staples store (AEI Income & Growth Fund 25 LLC); and PetSmart store (AEI Accredited Investor Fund V LP).

The Partnership accounts for properties owned as tenants-in-common with affiliated entities and/or unrelated third parties using the proportionate consolidation method.  Each tenant-in-common owns a separate, undivided interest in the properties.  Any tenant-in-common that holds more than a 50% interest does not control decisions over the other tenant-in-common interests.  The financial statements reflect only this Partnership's percentage share of the properties' land, building, liabilities, revenues and expenses.

At the time the properties were acquired, the remaining primary lease terms varied from 10 to 20 years, except for the Staples store, which had a remaining primary term of 8.4 years.  The leases provide the tenants with two to five five-year renewal options subject to the same terms and conditions as the primary term.  The leases for the Best Buy store and the Advance Auto Parts store were extended to end on March 31, 2024 and April 30, 2025, respectively.

Pursuant to the lease agreements, the tenants are required to provide proof of adequate insurance coverage on the properties they occupy.  The General Partners believe the properties are adequately covered by insurance and consider the properties to be well-maintained and sufficient for the Partnership's operations.

ITEM 2.  PROPERTIES.  (Continued)

For tax purposes, the Partnership's properties are depreciated under the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS).  The largest depreciable component of a property is the building which is depreciated using the straight-line method over 39 years.  The remaining depreciable component of a property is land improvements which are depreciated using an accelerated method over 15 years.  Since the Partnership has tax-exempt Partners, the Partnership is subject to the rules of Section 168(h)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code which requires a percentage of the properties' depreciable components to be depreciated over longer lives using the straight-line method.  In general, the federal tax basis of the properties for tax depreciation purposes equals the book depreciable cost of the properties plus the amortizable cost of the related intangible lease assets, except for properties purchased during 2009 through 2017.  For those properties, acquisition expenses that were expensed for book purposes were capitalized and added to the basis of the property for tax depreciation purposes.

At December 31, 2019, all properties listed above were 100% occupied.

(a) As of December 31, 2019, there were 604 holders of record of the registrant's Limited Partnership Units.  There is no other class of security outstanding or authorized.  The registrant's Units are not a traded security in any market.  During the period covered by this report, the Partnership did not sell any equity securities that are not registered under the Securities Act of 1933.

Cash distributions of $15,980 and $17,097 were made to the General Partners and $543,602 and $552,804 were made to the Limited Partners for 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The distributions were made on a quarterly basis and represented Net Cash Flow, as defined, except as discussed below.  These distributions should not be compared with dividends paid on capital stock by corporations.

As part of the Limited Partners’ distributions discussed above, the Partnership distributed net sale proceeds of $40,000 in 2019.

(b) Not applicable.

(c) Pursuant to Section 7.7 of the Partnership Agreement, each Limited Partner has the right to present Units to the Partnership for purchase by submitting notice to the Managing General Partner during January or July of each year.  The purchase price of the Units is equal to 90% of the net asset value per Unit, as of the first business day of January or July of each year, as determined by the Managing General Partner in accordance with the provisions of the Partnership Agreement.  Units tendered to the Partnership during January and July may be repurchased on April 1st and October 1st, respectively, of each year subject to the following limitations.  The Partnership will not be obligated to purchase in any year any number of Units that, when aggregated with all other transfers of Units that have occurred since the beginning of the same calendar year (excluding Permitted Transfers as defined in the Partnership Agreement), would exceed 5% of the total number of Units outstanding on January 1 of such year.  In no event shall the Partnership be obligated to purchase Units if, in the sole discretion of the Managing General Partner, such purchase would impair the capital or operation of the Partnership.

Other Information

Effective April 11, 2016, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) implemented Rule 2310, a revised rule that requires securities broker-dealers to report on customer account statements the value of investment units of non-traded securities, such as REITs, LLCs and Limited Partnerships, provided that the per unit value is derived using methodology set forth by the rule.

At December 31, 2019, the estimated value of the Partnership's Units was $819 per Unit.  The Managing General Partner is the party responsible for the estimated value per Unit.  The estimated value was derived using methodology that conforms to standard industry practice and based upon material assistance and/or confirmation by third-party valuation expert(s), in accordance with the appraised value method set forth in FINRA Rule 2340(c)(1)(B).

- 7 -

ITEM 5.  MARKET FOR REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCK-
                 HOLDER MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASES OF EQUITY SECURITIES.

In determining the estimated value of each property, the Managing General Partner relied on some or all of the following external information sources, as well as its own experience in the commercial, net leased property industry and knowledge of each property:

Opinions of value from real estate brokerage firms
Appraisal reports from independent commercial property appraisers
Industry market reports from real estate brokerage and appraisal firms
Market values from comparable properties listed for sale or recently sold
Interviews with real estate brokers and tenants
Tenant financial reports and other credit information, where available

The per Unit value was the aggregate estimated value of the Partnership's assets less the Partnership's liabilities, and less the value attributable to the interest of the General Partners, divided by the number of Units outstanding.  The Partnership's cash, receivables and liabilities were valued at face value.  Each of the Partnership's properties were valued by dividing their annual rental income as of December 1, 2019 by a capitalization rate the Managing General Partner believed, based upon the aforementioned valuation process, to be representative of the retail market for the sale of each property. The resulting value for each property was reviewed to determine that it also reflected circumstances that may have been unique to each specific property.  For recently acquired properties, an appraisal report received at or near the time of acquisition from an independent commercial property appraiser was used to determine the value of the property.  The appraisal report is used to value the property for approximately one year after the date of acquisition.  The valuations were estimates only, and were based on a number of assumptions which may not be accurate or complete.  In addition, property values are subject to change and could decline after the date of the valuations.  Accordingly, this estimated value should not be viewed as the amount at which a Limited Partner may be able to sell his units, or the fair market value of the Partnership properties, nor does it represent the amount of net proceeds Limited Partners would receive if the Partnership properties were sold and the proceeds distributed in a liquidation of the Partnership.

The following table provides a breakdown of each major asset type, liabilities and the number of Units that were used to calculate the estimated value per Unit as of December 31, 2019 and 2018:

ITEM 6.  SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA.

Not required for a smaller reporting company.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL
                 CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

This section contains "forward-looking statements" which represent management's expectations or beliefs concerning future events, including statements regarding anticipated application of cash, expected returns from rental income, growth in revenue, the sufficiency of cash to meet operating expenses, rates of distribution, and other matters.  These, and other forward-looking statements, should be evaluated in the context of a number of factors that may affect the Partnership's financial condition and results of operations, including the following:


Market and economic conditions which affect the value of the properties the Partnership owns and the cash from rental income such properties generate;

the federal income tax consequences of rental income, deductions, gain on sales and other items and the effects of these consequences for the Partners;

resolution by the General Partners of conflicts with which they may be confronted;

the success of the General Partners of locating properties with favorable risk return characteristics;

the effect of tenant defaults; and

the condition of the industries in which the tenants of properties owned by the Partnership operate.

Application of Critical Accounting Policies

The Partnership’s financial statements have been prepared in accordance with US GAAP.  Preparing the financial statements requires management to use judgment in the application of these accounting policies, including making estimates and assumptions.  These judgments will affect the reported amounts of the Partnership’s assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the dates of the financial statements and will affect the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods.  It is possible that the carrying amount of the Partnership’s assets and liabilities, or the results of reported operations, will be affected if management’s estimates or assumptions prove inaccurate.

Management of the Partnership evaluates the following accounting estimates on an ongoing basis, and has discussed the development and selection of these estimates and the management discussion and analysis disclosures regarding them with the managing partner of the Partnership.

Upon acquisition of real properties, the Partnership records them in the financial statements at cost.  The purchase price is allocated to tangible assets, consisting of land and building, and to identified intangible assets and liabilities, which may include the value of above market and below market leases and the value of in-place leases.  The allocation of the purchase price is based upon the fair value of each component of the property.  Although independent appraisals may be used to assist in the determination of fair value, in many cases these values will be based upon management’s assessment of each property, the selling prices of comparable properties and the discounted value of cash flows from the asset.

The fair values of above market and below market in-place leases will be recorded based on the present value (using an interest rate which reflects the risks associated with the leases acquired) of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases and (ii) an estimate of fair market lease rates for the corresponding in-place leases measured over a period equal to the non-cancelable term of the lease including any bargain renewal periods.  The above market and below market lease values will be capitalized as intangible lease assets or liabilities.  Above market lease values will be amortized as an adjustment of rental income over the remaining term of the respective leases.  Below market lease values will be amortized as an adjustment of rental income over the remaining term of the respective leases, including any bargain renewal periods.  If a lease were to be terminated prior to its stated expiration, all unamortized amounts of above market and below market in-place lease values relating to that lease would be recorded as an adjustment to rental income.

The fair values of in-place leases will include estimated direct costs associated with obtaining a new tenant, and opportunity costs associated with lost rentals which are avoided by acquiring an in-place lease.  Direct costs associated with obtaining a new tenant may include commissions, tenant improvements, and other direct costs and are estimated, in part, by management’s consideration of current market costs to execute a similar lease.  These direct costs will be included in intangible lease assets on the balance sheet and will be amortized to expense over the remaining term of the respective leases.  The value of opportunity costs will be calculated using the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases over a market absorption period for a similar lease.  These intangibles will be included in intangible lease assets on the balance sheet and will be amortized to expense over the remaining term of the respective leases.  If a lease were to be terminated prior to its stated expiration, all unamortized amounts of in-place lease assets relating to that lease would be expensed.

The determination of the fair values of the assets and liabilities acquired will require the use of significant assumptions with regard to the current market rental rates, rental growth rates, discount and capitalization rates, interest rates and other variables.  If management’s estimates or assumptions prove inaccurate, the result would be an inaccurate allocation of purchase price, which could impact the amount of reported net income.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS.  (Continued)

Carrying Value of Properties

Properties are carried at original cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization.  The Partnership tests long-lived assets for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.  For properties the Partnership will hold and operate, management determines whether impairment has occurred by comparing the property’s probability-weighted future undiscounted cash flows to its current carrying value.  For properties held for sale, management determines whether impairment has occurred by comparing the property’s estimated fair value less cost to sell to its current carrying value.  If the carrying value is greater than the net realizable value, an impairment loss is recorded to reduce the carrying value of the property to its net realizable value.  Changes in these assumptions or analysis may cause material changes in the carrying value of the properties.

Allocation of Expenses

AEI Fund Management, Inc. allocates expenses to each of the funds they manage primarily on the basis of the number of hours devoted by their employees to each fund’s affairs.  They also allocate expenses at the end of each month that are not directly related to a fund’s operations based upon the number of investors in the fund and the fund’s capitalization relative to other funds they manage.  The Partnership reimburses these expenses subject to detailed limitations contained in the Partnership Agreement.

Factors Which May Influence Results of Operations

The Partnership is not aware of any material trends or uncertainties, other than national economic conditions affecting real estate generally, that may reasonably be expected to have a material impact, favorable or unfavorable, on revenues and investment property value.  However, due to the recent outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the U.S. and globally, our tenants and operating partners may be impacted.  The impact of the coronavirus on our future results could be significant and will largely depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, including new information which may emerge concerning the severity of the coronavirus, the success of actions taken to contain or treat the coronavirus, and reactions by consumers, companies, governmental entities and capital markets.

Results of Operations

For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership recognized rental income of $560,172 and $718,486, respectively.  In 2019, rental income decreased due to the sale of two properties and a rent decrease related to the Best Buy store, as discussed below.  These decreases were partially offset by a rent increase on one property.  In addition, in 2018, rental income was lower due to the tenant of the Advance Auto Parts store receiving free rent, as discussed below.  Based on the scheduled rent for the properties owned as of February 29, 2020, the Partnership expects to recognize rental income of approximately $410,000 in 2020.

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS.  (Continued)

For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership incurred Partnership administration expenses from affiliated parties of $107,704 and $105,537, respectively.  These administration expenses include costs associated with the management of the properties, processing distributions, reporting requirements and communicating with the Limited Partners.  During the same periods, the Partnership incurred Partnership administration and property management expenses from unrelated parties of $44,778 and $34,767, respectively.  These expenses represent direct payments to third parties for legal and filing fees, direct administrative costs, outside audit costs, taxes, insurance and other property costs.

For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership recognized interest income of $33,231 and $6,245, respectively.  In 2019, interest income increased due to the Partnership having more money invested in a money market account due to property sales and higher money market interest rates in 2019.

In February 2018, the Partnership entered into an agreement with the tenant of the Advance Auto Parts store in Indianapolis, Indiana to extend the lease term five years to end on April 30, 2025.  As part of the agreement, the annual rent decreased from $95,885 to $81,861 effective January 1, 2018.  In addition, beginning on March 1, 2018, the tenant received free rent for four months that equaled $27,287.

In July 2018, the Partnership entered into an agreement with the tenant of the Best Buy store in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin to extend the lease term five years to end on March 31, 2024.  As part of the agreement, the annual rent decreased from $149,302 to $129,395 effective February 1, 2019.  In addition, beginning on February 1, 2019, the tenant received free rent for one month that equaled $10,783.

Management believes inflation has not significantly affected income from operations.  Leases may contain rent increases, based on the increase in the Consumer Price Index over a specified period, which will result in an increase in rental income over the term of the leases.  Inflation also may cause the real estate to appreciate in value.  However, inflation and changing prices may have an adverse impact on the operating margins of the properties' tenants, which could impair their ability to pay rent and subsequently reduce the Net Cash Flow available for distributions.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Partnership's cash balances increased $2,874,830 as a result of cash generated from the sale of property, which was partially offset by distributions paid to the Partners and cash used to repurchase units in excess of cash generated from operating activities.  During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Partnership's cash balances decreased $63,447 as a result of distributions paid to the Partners and cash used to repurchase Units in excess of cash generated from operating activities.

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased from $647,949 in 2018 to $446,742 in 2019 as a result of a decrease in total rental and interest income in 2019, an increase in Partnership administration and property management expenses in 2019 and net timing differences in the collection of payments from the tenants and the payment of expenses.
- 12 -

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS.  (Continued)

The major components of the Partnership's cash flow from investing activities are investments in real estate and proceeds from the sale of real estate.  During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Partnership generated cash flow from the sale of real estate of $3,602,430.  During the same period, the Partnership expended $30,000 to invest in real properties.

In December 2018, the Partnership decided to sell the Applebee’s restaurant in Crawfordsville, Indiana.  In January 2019, the Partnership entered into an agreement to sell the property to an unrelated third party.  On April 8, 2019, the sale closed with the Partnership receiving net proceeds of $1,863,691, which resulted in a net gain of $655,332.  At the time of sale, the cost and related accumulated depreciation was $1,856,656 and $648,297, respectively.  At December 31, 2018, the property was classified as Real Estate Held for Sale with a carrying value of $1,208,359.

In June 2019, the Partnership entered into an agreement with the tenant of the Tractor Supply Company store in Grand Forks, North Dakota to extend the lease term ten years to end on November 30, 2030.  The annual rent remained the same with a 4.0% increase scheduled to occur after five years.  As part of the agreement, the Partnership paid a tenant improvement allowance of $30,000 that was capitalized.

In June 2019, the Partnership reached an agreement to sell its 50% interest in the Tractor Supply Company store to an unrelated third party.  On August 1, 2019, the sale closed with the Partnership receiving net proceeds of $1,738,739, which resulted in a net gain of $885,582.  At the time of sale, the cost and related accumulated depreciation was $1,433,874 and $580,717, respectively.

The Partnership's primary use of cash flow, other than investment in real estate, is distribution payments to Partners and cash used to repurchase Units.  The Partnership declares its regular quarterly distributions before the end of each quarter and pays the distribution in the first week after the end of each quarter.  The Partnership attempts to maintain a stable distribution rate from quarter to quarter.  The Partnership may repurchase tendered Units on April 1st and October 1st of each year subject to limitations.

For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership declared distributions of $559,582 and $569,901, respectively.  Pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, distributions of Net Cash Flow were allocated 97% to the Limited Partners and 3% to the General Partners.  Distributions of Net Proceeds of Sale were allocated 99% to the Limited Partners and 1% to the General Partners.  The Limited Partners received distributions of $543,602 and $552,804 and the General Partners received distributions of $15,980 and $17,097 for the years, respectively.

As part of the distributions discussed above, the Partnership distributed net sale proceeds of $40,404 in 2019.  The Limited Partners received distributions of $40,000 and the General Partners received distributions of $404.  The Limited Partners’ distributions represented $3.09 per Unit.

- 13 -

ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS.  (Continued)

The Partnership may repurchase Units from Limited Partners who have tendered their Units to the Partnership.  Such Units may be acquired at a discount.  The Partnership will not be obligated to purchase in any year any number of Units that, when aggregated with all other transfers of Units that have occurred since the beginning of the same calendar year (excluding Permitted Transfers as defined in the Partnership Agreement), would exceed 5% of the total number of Units outstanding on January 1 of such year.  In no event shall the Partnership be obligated to purchase Units if, in the sole discretion of the Managing General Partner, such purchase would impair the capital or operation of the Partnership.

During 2019, the Partnership repurchased a total of 771.14 Units for $573,096 from 28 Limited Partners in accordance with the Partnership Agreement.  The Partnership acquired these Units using net sales proceeds.  During 2018, the Partnership repurchased a total of 178.20 Units for $137,248 from 13 Limited Partners.  The Partnership acquired these Units using Net Cash Flow from operations.  In prior years, the Partnership repurchased a total of 3,276.10 Units for $2,445,294 from 169 Limited Partners.  The repurchases increase the remaining Limited Partners' ownership interest in the Partnership.  As a result of these repurchases and pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, the General Partners received distributions of $5,789 and $4,245 in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

The continuing rent payments from the properties, together with cash generated from property sales, should be adequate to fund continuing distributions and meet other Partnership obligations on both a short-term and long-term basis.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership had no material off-balance sheet arrangements that had or are reasonably likely to have current or future effects on its financial condition, results of operations, liquidity or capital resources.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Partners:
AEI Income & Growth Fund XXII Limited Partnership
St. Paul, Minnesota

Opinion on the Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of AEI Income & Growth Fund XXII Limited Partnership (a Minnesota limited partnership) as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related statements of income, changes in partners' capital (deficit), and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2019, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Partnership as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2019, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Basis for Opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Partnership’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Partnership’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Partnership in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Partnership is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

AEI INCOME & GROWTH FUND XXII LIMITED PARTNERSHIP
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2019 AND 2018

(1)  Organization –

AEI Income & Growth Fund XXII Limited Partnership (“Partnership”) was formed to acquire and lease commercial properties to operating tenants.  The Partnership's operations are managed by AEI Fund Management XXI, Inc. (“AFM”), the Managing General Partner.  Robert P. Johnson, the Chief Executive Officer and sole director of AFM, serves as the Individual General Partner.  AFM is a wholly owned subsidiary of AEI Capital Corporation of which Mr. Johnson and his wife own a majority interest.  AEI Fund Management, Inc. (“AEI”), an affiliate of AFM, performs the administrative and operating functions for the Partnership.

The terms of the Partnership offering called for a subscription price of $1,000 per Limited Partnership Unit, payable on acceptance of the offer.  The Partnership commenced operations on May 1, 1997 when minimum subscriptions of 1,500 Limited Partnership Units ($1,500,000) were accepted.  The offering terminated January 9, 1999 when the extended offering period ended.  The Partnership received subscriptions for 16,917.222 Limited Partnership Units.  Under the terms of the Limited Partnership Agreement, the Limited Partners and General Partners contributed funds of $16,917,222 and $1,000, respectively.

During operations, any Net Cash Flow, as defined, which the General Partners determine to distribute will be distributed 97% to the Limited Partners and 3% to the General Partners.  Distributions to Limited Partners will be made pro rata by Units.

Any Net Proceeds of Sale, as defined, from the sale or financing of properties which the General Partners determine to distribute will, after provisions for debts and reserves, be paid in the following manner: (i) first, 99% to the Limited Partners and 1% to the General Partners until the Limited Partners receive an amount equal to: (a) their Adjusted Capital Contribution plus (b) an amount equal to 9% of their Adjusted Capital Contribution per annum, cumulative but not compounded, to the extent not previously distributed from Net Cash Flow; (ii) any remaining balance will be distributed 90% to the Limited Partners and 10% to the General Partners.  Distributions to the Limited Partners will be made pro rata by Units.

For tax purposes, profits from operations, other than profits attributable to the sale, exchange, financing, refinancing or other disposition of property, will be allocated first in the same ratio in which, and to the extent, Net Cash Flow is distributed to the Partners for such year.  Any additional profits will be allocated in the same ratio as the last dollar of Net Cash Flow is distributed.  Net losses from operations will be allocated 99% to the Limited Partners and 1% to the General Partners.

(1)  Organization – (Continued)

For tax purposes, profits arising from the sale, financing, or other disposition of property will be allocated in accordance with the Partnership Agreement as follows: (i) first, to those partners with deficit balances in their capital accounts in an amount equal to the sum of such deficit balances; (ii) second, 99% to the Limited Partners and 1% to the General Partners until the aggregate balance in the Limited Partners' capital accounts equals the sum of the Limited Partners' Adjusted Capital Contributions plus an amount equal to 9% of their Adjusted Capital Contributions per annum, cumulative but not compounded, to the extent not previously allocated; (iii) third, the balance of any remaining gain will then be allocated 90% to the Limited Partners and 10% to the General Partners.  Losses will be allocated 98% to the Limited Partners and 2% to the General Partners.

The General Partners are not required to currently fund a deficit capital balance.  Upon liquidation of the Partnership or withdrawal by a General Partner, the General Partners will contribute to the Partnership an amount equal to the lesser of the deficit balances in their capital accounts or 1% of total Limited Partners' and General Partners' capital contributions.

In May 2015, the Managing General Partner mailed a Consent Statement (Proxy) seeking the consent of the Limited Partners to continue the Partnership for an additional 60 months or to initiate the final disposition, liquidation and distribution of all of the Partnership’s properties and assets.  Approval of either proposal required the affirmative vote of holders of a majority of the outstanding units.  On June 17, 2015, the votes were counted and neither proposal received the required majority vote.  As a result, the Partnership will not liquidate and will continue in operation until the Limited Partners vote to authorize the sale of all of the Partnership's properties or December 31, 2046, as stated in the Limited Partnership Agreement. However, in approximately five years, the Managing General Partner expects to again submit the question to liquidate to a vote by the Limited Partners.

(2)  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies –

Financial Statement Presentation

The accounts of the Partnership are maintained on the accrual basis of accounting for both federal income tax purposes and financial reporting purposes.

Accounting Estimates

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing these financial statements in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP).  Those estimates and assumptions may affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses.  Actual results could differ from those estimates, and the difference could be material.  Significant items, subject to such estimates and assumptions, include the carrying value of real estate held for investment, real estate held for sale and related intangible assets.

AEI INCOME & GROWTH FUND XXII LIMITED PARTNERSHIP
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2019 AND 2018

(2)  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – (Continued)

The Partnership regularly assesses whether market events and conditions indicate that it is reasonably possible to recover the carrying amounts of its investments in real estate from future operations and sales.  A change in those market events and conditions could have a material effect on the carrying amount of its real estate.

Cash Concentrations of Credit Risk

The Partnership's cash is deposited in one financial institution and at times during the year it may exceed FDIC insurance limits.

Receivables

Credit terms are extended to tenants in the normal course of business.  The Partnership performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers’ financial condition and, generally, requires no collateral.

Receivables are recorded at their estimated net realizable value. The Partnership follows a policy of providing an allowance for doubtful accounts; however, based on historical experience, and its evaluation of the current status of receivables, the Partnership is of the belief that such accounts, if any, will be collectible in all material respects and thus an allowance is not necessary.  Accounts are considered past due if payment is not made on a timely basis in accordance with the Partnership’s credit terms.  Receivables considered uncollectible are written off.

Income Taxes

The income or loss of the Partnership for federal income tax reporting purposes is includable in the income tax returns of the partners.  In general, no recognition has been given to income taxes in the accompanying financial statements.

The tax return and the amount of distributable Partnership income or loss are subject to examination by federal and state taxing authorities.  If such an examination results in changes to distributable Partnership income or loss, the taxable income of the partners would be adjusted accordingly.  Primarily due to its tax status as a partnership, the Partnership has no significant tax uncertainties that require recognition or disclosure.  The Partnership is no longer subject to U.S. federal income tax examinations for tax years before 2016, and with few exceptions, is no longer subject to state tax examinations for tax years before 2016.

Revenue Recognition

The Partnership's real estate is leased under net leases, classified as operating leases.  The leases provide for base annual rental payments payable in monthly installments.  The Partnership recognizes rental income according to the terms of the individual leases.  For leases that contain stated rental increases, the increases are recognized in the year in which they are effective.  Contingent rental payments are recognized when the contingencies on which the payments are based are satisfied and the rental payments become due under the terms of the leases.

(2)  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – (Continued)

Real Estate

Upon acquisition of real properties, the Partnership records them in the financial statements at cost.  The purchase price is allocated to tangible assets, consisting of land and building, and to identified intangible assets and liabilities, which may include the value of above market and below market leases and the value of in-place leases.  The allocation of the purchase price is based upon the fair value of each component of the property.  Although independent appraisals may be used to assist in the determination of fair value, in many cases these values will be based upon management’s assessment of each property, the selling prices of comparable properties and the discounted value of cash flows from the asset.

The fair values of above market and below market in-place leases will be recorded based on the present value (using an interest rate which reflects the risks associated with the leases acquired) of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases and (ii) an estimate of fair market lease rates for the corresponding in-place leases measured over a period equal to the non-cancelable term of the lease including any bargain renewal periods.  The above market and below market lease values will be capitalized as intangible lease assets or liabilities.  Above market lease values will be amortized as an adjustment of rental income over the remaining term of the respective leases.  Below market lease values will be amortized as an adjustment of rental income over the remaining term of the respective leases, including any bargain renewal periods.  If a lease were to be terminated prior to its stated expiration, all unamortized amounts of above market and below market in-place lease values relating to that lease would be recorded as an adjustment to rental income.

The fair values of in-place leases will include estimated direct costs associated with obtaining a new tenant, and opportunity costs associated with lost rentals which are avoided by acquiring an in-place lease.  Direct costs associated with obtaining a new tenant may include commissions, tenant improvements, and other direct costs and are estimated, in part, by management’s consideration of current market costs to execute a similar lease.  These direct costs will be included in intangible lease assets on the balance sheet and will be amortized to expense over the remaining term of the respective leases.  The value of opportunity costs will be calculated using the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases over a market absorption period for a similar lease.  These intangibles will be included in intangible lease assets on the balance sheet and will be amortized to expense over the remaining term of the respective leases.  If a lease were to be terminated prior to its stated expiration, all unamortized amounts of in-place lease assets relating to that lease would be expensed.

(2)  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies – (Continued)

The Partnership tests real estate for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable.  For properties the Partnership will hold and operate, it compares the carrying amount of the property to the estimated probability-weighted future undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the property and its eventual disposition.  If the sum of the expected future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the property, the Partnership recognizes an impairment loss by the amount by which the carrying amount of the property exceeds the fair value of the property.  For properties held for sale, the Partnership determines whether impairment has occurred by comparing the property’s estimated fair value less cost to sell to its current carrying value.  If the carrying value is greater than the net realizable value, an impairment loss is recorded to reduce the carrying value of the property to its net realizable value.

For financial reporting purposes, the buildings owned by the Partnership are depreciated using the straight-line method over an estimated useful life of 25 years.  Intangible lease assets are amortized using the straight-line method for financial reporting purposes based on the remaining life of the lease.

The disposition of a property or classification of a property as Real Estate Held for Sale by the Partnership does not represent a strategic shift that will have a major effect on the Partnership’s operations and financial results.  Therefore, the results from operating and selling the property are included in continuing operations.

The Partnership accounts for properties owned as tenants-in-common with affiliated entities and/or unrelated third parties using the proportionate consolidation method.  Each tenant-in-common owns a separate, undivided interest in the properties.  Any tenant-in-common that holds more than a 50% interest does not control decisions over the other tenant-in-common interests.  The financial statements reflect only this Partnership's percentage share of the properties' land, building, liabilities, revenues and expenses.

The Partnership's properties are subject to environmental laws and regulations adopted by various governmental entities in the jurisdiction in which the properties are located.  These laws could require the Partnership to investigate and remediate the effects of the release or disposal of hazardous materials at these locations if found.  For each property, an environmental assessment is completed prior to acquisition.  In addition, the lease agreements typically strictly prohibit the production, handling, or storage of hazardous materials (except where incidental to the tenant’s business such as use of cleaning supplies) in violation of applicable law to restrict environmental and other damage.  Environmental liabilities are recorded when it is determined the liability is probable and the costs can reasonably be estimated.  There were no environmental issues noted or liabilities recorded at December 31, 2019 and 2018.

Fair Value Measurements

As of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership had no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis or nonrecurring basis.

Income Per Unit

Income per Limited Partnership Unit is calculated based on the weighted average number of Limited Partnership Units outstanding during each period presented.  Diluted income per Limited Partnership Unit considers the effect of any potentially dilutive Unit equivalents, of which the Partnership had none for each of the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.

Reportable Segments

The Partnership invests in single tenant commercial properties throughout the United States that are net leased to tenants in various industries.  Because these net leased properties have similar economic characteristics, the Partnership evaluates operating performance on an overall portfolio basis.  Therefore, the Partnership’s properties are classified as one reportable segment.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

In August 2018, the SEC adopted the final rule under SEC Release No. 33-10532, Disclosure Update and Simplification, amending certain disclosure requirements that were redundant, duplicative, overlapping, outdated or superseded.  In addition, the amendments expanded the disclosure requirements for the analysis of partners’ capital for interim financial statements.  Under the amendments, an analysis of changes in each caption of partners’ capital presented in the balance sheet must be provided in a note or separate statement.  The analysis should present a reconciliation of the beginning balance to the ending balance of each period for which a statement of income is required to be filed.  The Partnership’s first presentation of year-to-date quarterly changes in partners’ capital was included in its Form 10‑Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019.

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-02, which provides guidance for accounting for leases.  The new guidance requires companies to recognize the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by leased assets, initially measured at the present value of the lease payments.  The accounting guidance for lessors is largely unchanged.  The ASU is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018. It is to be adopted using a modified retrospective approach.  The Partnership has adopted the accounting pronouncement effective January 1, 2019 and the adoption of the standard did not have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements.

(4)  Real Estate Investments –

The Partnership leases its properties to tenants under net leases, classified as operating leases.  Under a net lease, the tenant is responsible for real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance, repairs and operating expenses for the property.  For some leases, the Partnership is responsible for repairs to the structural components of the building, the roof, and the parking lot.  At the time the properties were acquired, the remaining primary lease terms varied from 10 to 20 years, except for the Staples store, which had a remaining primary term of 8.4 years.  The leases provide the tenants with two to five five-year renewal options subject to the same terms and conditions as the primary term.  The leases for the Best Buy store and the Advance Auto Parts store were extended to end on March 31, 2024 and April 30, 2025, respectively.

The Partnership's properties are commercial, single-tenant buildings.  The Advance Auto Parts store was constructed in 2005 and acquired in 2006.  The Best Buy store was constructed and acquired in 2008.  The Staples store was constructed in 2010 and acquired in 2011.  The PetSmart store was constructed and acquired in 2012.  The St. Vincent Medical Clinic was constructed in 2010 and acquired in 2013.  There have been no costs capitalized as improvements subsequent to the acquisitions, except for $3,007 of tenant improvements related to the Staples store.

(6)  Partners’ Capital –

For the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Partnership declared distributions of $559,582 and $569,901, respectively.  The Limited Partners received distributions of $543,602 and $552,804 and the General Partners received distributions of $15,980 and $17,097 for the years, respectively.  The Limited Partners' distributions represented $41.75 and $40.87 per Limited Partnership Unit outstanding using 13,021 and 13,527 weighted average Units in 2019 and 2018, respectively.  The distributions represented $41.75 and $9.59 per Unit of Net Income and $0 and $31.28 per Unit of return of capital in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

As part of the distributions discussed above, the Partnership distributed net sale proceeds of $40,404 in 2019.  The Limited Partners received distributions of $40,000 and the General Partners received distributions of $404.  The Limited Partners’ distributions represented $3.09 per Unit.

The Partnership may repurchase Units from Limited Partners who have tendered their Units to the Partnership.  Such Units may be acquired at a discount.  The Partnership will not be obligated to purchase in any year any number of Units that, when aggregated with all other transfers of Units that have occurred since the beginning of the same calendar year (excluding Permitted Transfers as defined in the Partnership Agreement), would exceed 5% of the total number of Units outstanding on January 1 of such year.  In no event shall the Partnership be obligated to purchase Units if, in the sole discretion of the Managing General Partner, such purchase would impair the capital or operation of the Partnership.

During 2019, the Partnership repurchased a total of 771.14 Units for $573,096 from 28 Limited Partners in accordance with the Partnership Agreement.  The Partnership acquired these Units using net sales proceeds.  During 2018, the Partnership repurchased a total of 178.20 Units for $137,248 from 13 Limited Partners.  The Partnership acquired these Units using Net Cash Flow from operations.  The repurchases increase the remaining Limited Partners' ownership interest in the Partnership.  As a result of these repurchases and pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, the General Partners received distributions of $5,789 and $4,245 in 2019 and 2018, respectively.

AEI INCOME & GROWTH FUND XXII LIMITED PARTNERSHIP
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2019 AND 2018

(8)  Coronavirus Outbreak –

Subsequent to December 31, 2019, there was a global outbreak of a new strain of coronavirus, COVID-19 which continues to adversely impact global commercial activity and has contributed to significant volatility in financial markets.  The global impact of the outbreak has been rapidly evolving, and as cases of the virus have continued to be identified in additional countries, many countries have reacted by instituting quarantines, placing restrictions on travel, and limiting hours of operations of non-essential offices and retail centers.  Such actions are creating disruption in global supply chains, and adversely impacting a number of industries, such as retail, restaurants and transportation.  The outbreak could have a continued adverse impact on economic and market conditions and trigger a period of global economic slowdown.  The rapid development and fluidity of this situation precludes any prediction as to the ultimate adverse impact of the coronavirus.  Nevertheless, the coronavirus presents material uncertainty and risk with respect to the Partnership’s performance and financial results, such as the potential negative impact to the tenants of its properties, the potential closure of certain of its properties, increased costs of operations, decrease in values of its properties, changes in law and/or regulation, and uncertainty regarding government and regulatory policy.  The Partnership is unable to estimate the impact the coronavirus will have on its financial results at this time.

ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

(a) Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including its President and Chief Financial Officer, the Managing General Partner of the Partnership evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)).  Based upon that evaluation, the President and Chief Financial Officer of the Managing General Partner concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective in ensuring that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in applicable rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the President and Chief Financial Officer of the Managing General Partner, in a manner that allows timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

(b)  Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.

(i) Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.  The Managing General Partner, through its management, is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over our financial reporting, as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act, and for performing an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2019.  Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with US GAAP.  Our system of internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Partnership; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with US GAAP, and that receipts and expenditures of the Partnership are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management of the Managing General Partner; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the Partnership's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Management of the Managing General Partner performed an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2019 based upon criteria in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”).  Based on our assessment, management of the Managing General Partner determined that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2019 based on the criteria in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013) issued by the COSO.

ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.  (Continued)

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

(ii)  Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.  During the most recent period covered by this report, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 9B.  OTHER INFORMATION.

None.


PART III

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.

The registrant is a limited partnership and has no officers, directors, or direct employees.  The General Partners manage and control the Partnership's affairs and have general responsibility and the ultimate authority in all matters affecting the Partnership's business.  The General Partners are AEI Fund Management XXI, Inc. (“AFM”), the Managing General Partner, and Robert P. Johnson, Chief Executive Officer and sole director of AFM, the Individual General Partner.  AFM is a wholly owned subsidiary of AEI Capital Corporation of which Mr. Johnson and his wife own a majority interest.  AFM has only one senior financial executive, its Chief Financial Officer.  The Chief Financial Officer reports directly to Mr. Johnson and Marni J. Nygard, President of AFM, and is accountable for his actions to both.  Although Mr. Johnson and AFM require that all of their personnel, including the Chief Financial Officer, engage in honest and ethical conduct, ensure full, fair, accurate, timely, and understandable disclosure, comply with all applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations, and report to Mr. Johnson and Ms. Nygard any deviation from these principles, because the organization is composed of only approximately 50 individuals, because the management of a partnership by an entity that has different interests in distributions and income than investors involves numerous conflicts of interest that must be resolved on a daily basis, and because the ultimate decision maker in all instances is Mr. Johnson, AFM has not adopted a formal code of conduct.  Instead, the materials pursuant to which investors purchase Units disclose these conflicts of interest in detail and Mr. Johnson, as the CEO and sole director of AFM, resolves conflicts to the best of his ability, consistent with his fiduciary obligations to AFM and the fiduciary obligations of AFM to the Partnership.  The director and officers of AFM are as follows:

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.
                 (Continued)

Robert P. Johnson, age 75, is Chief Executive Officer and sole director and has held these positions since the formation of AFM in August 1994, and has been elected to continue in these positions until December 2020.  He was President of AFM from August 1994 to July 2019.  From 1970 to the present, he has been employed exclusively in the investment industry, specializing in limited partnership investments.  In that capacity, he has been involved in the development, analysis, marketing and management of public and private investment programs investing in net lease properties as well as public and private investment programs investing in energy development.  Since 1971, Mr. Johnson has been the president, a director and a registered principal of AEI Securities, Inc., which is registered with the SEC as a securities broker-dealer, is a member of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and is a member of the Security Investors Protection Corporation (SIPC).  Mr. Johnson has been Chief Executive Officer, a director and the principal shareholder of AEI Fund Management, Inc., a real estate management company founded by him, since 1978.  Mr. Johnson is currently a general partner or principal of the general partner in nine limited partnerships and a managing member in five LLCs.

Marni J. Nygard, Esq., age 45, is President of AFM and has held this position since July 11, 2019, when she assumed the role from Mr. Johnson. She has been elected to continue in this position until December 2020.  Ms. Nygard continues as Chief Investment Officer for AEI and is a General Securities Principal of AEI Securities, Inc. She joined AEI in 2005 and is responsible for the implementation of AEI’s acquisition investment objectives and strategies. As President, she drives corporate initiatives for the development, analysis, marketing and management of AEI public and private Funds investing in net leased commercial properties. Prior to joining AEI, she was employed as an attorney at CI Title in St. Paul, Minnesota in the residential and commercial property departments.

Patrick W. Keene, CPA (inactive), age 60, was Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary of AFM from January 22, 2003 to January 31, 2020, when he retired from AEI.  Mr. Keene had been employed by AEI Fund Management, Inc. and affiliated entities since 1986.  Prior to being elected to the positions above, he was Controller of the various entities.  From 1982 to 1986, Mr. Keene was with KPMG, an international accounting and auditing firm, first as an auditor and later as a tax manager.  Mr. Keene was responsible for all accounting functions of AFM and the registrant.

Keith E. Petersen, CPA (inactive), age 45, is Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary of AFM and has held these positions since February 1, 2020, when he assumed these roles from Mr. Keene.  He has been elected to continue in these positions until December 2020.  Mr. Petersen has been employed by AEI Fund Management, Inc. and affiliated entities since November 2016.  Prior to being elected to the positions above, he was Controller of the various entities.  Prior to joining AEI, Keith was employed with Pine River Capital Management as the Vice President of Tax Compliance and with Deloitte, an international accounting and auditing firm, as a Senior Tax Manager.

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE.
                 (Continued)

Since Mr. Johnson serves as the Individual General Partner of the Partnership, as well as the sole director of AFM, all of the duties that might be assigned to an audit committee are assigned to Mr. Johnson.  Mr. Johnson is not an audit committee financial expert, as defined.  As an officer and majority owner, through a parent company, of AFM, and as the Individual General Partner, Mr. Johnson is not a "disinterested director" and may be subject to a number of conflicts of interests in his capacity as sole director of AFM.

Before the independent auditors are engaged, Mr. Johnson, as the sole director of AFM, approves all audit-related fees, and all permissible nonaudit fees, for services of our auditors.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Under federal securities laws, the directors and officers of the General Partner of the Partnership, and any beneficial owner of more than 10% of a class of equity securities of the Partnership, are required to report their ownership of the Partnership's equity securities and any changes in such ownership to the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission").  Specific due dates for these reports have been established by the Commission, and the Partnership is required to disclose in this Annual Report on 10-K any delinquent filing of such reports and any failure to file such reports during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.  Based upon information provided by officers and directors of the General Partner, all officers, directors and 10% owners filed all reports on a timely basis in the 2019 fiscal year.

ITEM 11.  EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION.

The General Partner and affiliates are reimbursed at cost for all services performed on behalf of the registrant and for all third party expenses paid on behalf of the registrant.  The cost for services performed on behalf of the registrant is based on actual time spent performing such services plus an overhead burden.  These services include organizing the registrant and arranging for the offer and sale of Units, reviewing properties for acquisition and rendering administrative, property management, and property sales services.  The amount and nature of such payments are detailed in Item 13 of this annual report on Form 10-K.

                   MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS.

The following table sets forth information pertaining to the ownership of the Units by each person known by the Partnership to beneficially own 5% or more of the Units, by each General Partner, and by each officer or director of the Managing General Partner as of February 29, 2020:

ITEM 13.  CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND
                   DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE.

The registrant, AFM and its affiliates have common management and utilize the same facilities.  As a result, certain administrative expenses are allocated among these related entities.  All of such activities and any other transactions involving the affiliates of the General Partner of the registrant are governed by, and are conducted in conformity with, the limitations set forth in the Limited Partnership Agreement of the registrant.  Reference is made to Note 3 of the Financial Statements, as presented, and is incorporated herein by reference, for details of related party transactions for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.

Neither the registrant, nor the Managing General Partner of the registrant, has a board of directors consisting of any members who are “independent.”  The sole director of the Managing General Partner, Robert P. Johnson, is also the Individual General Partner of the registrant, and is the Chief Executive Officer, and indirectly the principal owner, of the Managing General Partner.  Accordingly, there is no disinterested board, or other functioning body, that reviews related party transactions, or the transactions between the registrant and the General Partners, except as performed in connection with the audit of its financial statements.

ITEM 13.  CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND
                   DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE.  (Continued)

The limitations included in the Partnership Agreement require that the cumulative reimbursements to the General Partners and their affiliates for certain expenses will not exceed an amount equal to the sum of (i) 20% of gross offering proceeds, (ii) 5% of Net Cash Flow for property management, (iii) 3% of Net Proceeds of Sale, and (iv) 10% of Net Cash Flow less the Net Cash Flow actually distributed to the General Partners. The cumulative reimbursements subject to this limitation are reimbursements for (i) organization and offering expenses, including commissions, (ii) acquisition expenses, (iii) services provided in the sales effort of properties, and (iv) expenses of controlling persons and overhead expenses directly attributable to the forgoing services or attributable to administrative services. As of December 31, 2019, these cumulative reimbursements to the General Partners and their affiliates did not exceed the limitation amount.

The following table sets forth the forms of compensation, distributions and cost reimbursements paid by the registrant to the General Partners or their Affiliates in connection with the operation of the Fund for the period from inception through December 31, 2019.
