Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements


Note 1 – Organization and Basis of Presentation
Equity LifeStyle Properties, Inc. ("ELS"), a Maryland corporation, together with MHC Operating Limited Partnership (the "Operating Partnership") and its other consolidated subsidiaries (the "Subsidiaries"), are referred to herein as "we," "us," and "our." We are a fully integrated owner and operator of lifestyle-oriented properties ("Properties") consisting primarily of manufactured home ("MH") and recreational vehicle ("RV") communities. We provide our customers the opportunity to place manufactured homes, cottages or RVs on our Properties either on a long-term or short-term basis. Our customers may lease individual developed areas ("Sites") or enter into right-to-use contracts, also known as membership subscriptions, which provide them access to specific Properties for limited stays.
Our Properties are owned primarily by the Operating Partnership and managed internally by affiliates of the Operating Partnership. ELS is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership, has exclusive responsibility and discretion in management and control of the Operating Partnership and held a 94.6% interest as of March 31, 2020. As the general partner with control, ELS is the primary beneficiary of, and therefore consolidates, the Operating Partnership.
Equity method of accounting is applied to entities in which ELS does not have a controlling interest or for variable interest entities in which ELS is not considered the primary beneficiary, but with respect to which it can exercise significant influence over operations and major decisions. Our exposure to losses associated with unconsolidated joint ventures is primarily limited to the carrying value of these investments. Accordingly, distributions from a joint venture in excess of our carrying value are recognized in earnings.
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and regulations for Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.
Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. All adjustments to the interim consolidated financial statements are of a normal, recurring nature and, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of results for these interim periods. Revenues and expenses are subject to seasonal fluctuations and accordingly, quarterly interim results may not be indicative of full year results.
On October 15, 2019, we effected a two-for-one stock split of our common stock. Pursuant to the anti-dilution provision in the Operating Partnership's Agreement of Limited Partnership, the stock split also effected a two-for one split of the outstanding Operating Partnership units ("OP units"). All shares of common stock and OP units and per share data in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes, for all periods presented, have been adjusted to reflect the stock split.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
(a)
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

On January 1, 2020, we prospectively adopted FASB ("ASU 2018-15") Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software (ASC 350-40), Customer's Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. ASU 2018-15 provides guidance on accounting for fees paid when the arrangement includes a software license and aligns the requirements for capitalizing implementation costs incurred in a hosting arrangement that is a service contract with the requirements for capitalizing costs to develop or obtain internal-use software. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
On January 1, 2020 we adopted FASB (“ASU 2016-13”) Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326) using the modified retrospective approach. ASU 2016-13 requires entities to measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. Entities should use forward-looking information to better form their credit loss estimates. 
We are exposed to credit losses primarily through sales of annual membership subscriptions and membership upgrades and home sales. We have developed an allowance for credit losses, which represents an estimate of expected losses over the remaining contractual life of our receivables considering current market conditions and estimates for forecasts when appropriate. The estimate

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

is a result of our ongoing assessments and evaluations of collectability, historical loss experience and future expectations in estimating credit losses in each of our receivable portfolios. We recognized a cumulative-effect adjustment of $3.9 million, which decreased opening retained earnings as of January 1, 2020.
The cumulative-effect adjustment resulting from the adoption of ASU 2016-13 as of January 1, 2020 was as follows:

Revenue Recognition
Rental income is accounted for in accordance with the ASC 842, Leases, and is recognized over the term of the respective lease or the length of a customer's stay. Utility recoveries are presented within Rental income on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income. Expected credit losses related to the collectability of lease receivables are presented as a reduction to Rental Income. Lease receivables are presented within Other assets, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and are net of expected credit losses. See Note 3. Leases for additional information.

Annual membership subscriptions and membership upgrade sales are accounted for in accordance with ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. Membership subscriptions provide our customers access to specific Properties for limited stays at a specified group of Properties. Payments are deferred and recognized on a straight-line basis over the one-year period during which access to Sites at certain Properties is provided. Membership subscription receivables are presented within Other assets, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and are net of an allowance for credit losses. Membership upgrades grant certain additional access rights to the customer and require non-refundable upfront payments. The non-refundable upfront payments are recognized on a straight-line basis over 20 years. Financed upgrade sales (also known as contract receivables) are presented within Notes receivable, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and are net of an allowance for credit losses.

Income from home sales is recognized when the earnings process is complete. The earnings process is complete when the home has been delivered, the purchaser has accepted the home and title has transferred. Financed home sales (also known as chattel loans) are presented within Notes receivable, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and are net of an allowance for credit losses.
(c)
Restricted Cash
As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, restricted cash consists of $27.6 million and $25.1 million, respectively, primarily related to cash reserved for customer deposits and amounts escrowed for insurance and real estate taxes.

Note 3 – Leases


Lessor
Rental income derived from customers renting our Sites is accounted for in accordance with ASC 842, Leases, and is recognized over the term of the respective operating lease or the length of a customer's stay. MH Sites are generally leased on an annual basis to residents who own or lease factory-built homes, including manufactured homes. Annual RV and marina Sites are leased on an annual basis to customers who generally have an RV, factory-built cottage, boat or other unit placed on the site, including those Northern properties that are open for the summer season. Seasonal RV and marina Sites are leased to customers generally for one to six months. Transient RV and marina Sites are leased to customers on a short-term basis. In addition, customers may lease homes that are located in our communities.
The leases entered into between the customer and us for a rental of a Site are renewable upon the consent of both parties or, in some instances, as provided by statute. Long-term leases that are non-cancelable by the tenants are in effect at certain Properties. Rental rate increases at these Properties are primarily a function of increases in the Consumer Price Index, taking into consideration certain conditions. Additionally, periodic market rate adjustments are made as deemed appropriate. In addition, certain state statutes allow entry into long-term agreements that effectively modify lease terms related to rent amounts and increases over the term of the agreements. The following table presents future minimum rents expected to be received under long-term non-cancelable tenant leases, as well as those leases that are subject to long-term agreements governing rent payments and increases:

Lessee
We lease land under non-cancelable operating leases at 13 Properties expiring at various dates through 2054. The majority of the leases have terms requiring fixed payments plus additional rents based on a percentage of gross revenues at those Properties. We also have other operating leases, primarily office space, expiring at various dates through 2026. For the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, total operating lease payments were $2.4 million and $2.3 million, respectively.
The following table summarizes our minimum future rental payments, excluding variable costs, which are discounted by our incremental borrowing rate to calculate the lease liability for our operating leases as of March 31, 2020:

Equity Offering Program
Our at-the-market (“ATM”) equity offering program allows us to sell, from time-to-time, shares of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share, having an aggregate offering price of up to $200.0 million. As of March 31, 2020, we have $140.7 million of common stock available under the ATM offering program for issuance.
Exchanges
Subject to certain limitations, OP Unit holders can request an exchange of any or all of their OP Units for shares of Common Stock at any time. Upon receipt of such a request, we may, in lieu of issuing shares of Common Stock, cause the Operating Partnership to pay cash. During the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, 9,228 and 10,650 OP Units, respectively, were exchanged for an equal number of shares of Common Stock

Note 6 – Investment in Real Estate
Acquisitions
On March 25, 2019, we completed the acquisitions of Drummer Boy Camping Resort, a 465-site RV community located in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and Lake of the Woods Campground, a 303-site RV community located in Wautoma, Wisconsin, for a total purchase price of $25.4 million. These acquisitions were funded with available cash and a loan assumption of approximately $10.8 million, excluding mortgage premium of $0.4 million.

The weighted average interest rate on our outstanding mortgage indebtedness, including the impact of premium/discount amortization and loan cost amortization on mortgage indebtedness, as of March 31, 2020, was approximately 4.3% per annum. The debt bears interest at stated rates ranging from 2.7% to 8.9% per annum and matures on various dates ranging from 2021 to 2041. The debt encumbered a total of 125 and 116 of our Properties as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, and the gross carrying value of such Properties was approximately $2,634.2 million and $2,524.7 million, as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.
2020 Activity
During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, we entered into a $275.4 million secured credit facility with Fannie Mae, maturing in 10 years and bearing a 2.7% interest rate. The facility is secured by eight MH and four RV communities. We also repaid $48.1 million of principal on three mortgage loans that were due to mature in 2020, incurring $1.0 million of prepayment penalties. These mortgage loans had a weighted average interest rate of 5.2% per annum and were secured by three MH communities.
2019 Activity
During the quarter ended March 31, 2019, we defeased mortgage debt of $11.2 million in conjunction with the disposition of five all-age MH communities as disclosed in Note 6. Investment in Real Estate. These loans had a weighted average interest rate of 5.0% per annum. We also assumed mortgage debt of $10.8 million, excluding mortgage note premium of $0.4 million, as a result of the acquisitions that were closed during the quarter. This loan carries an interest rate of 5.5% per annum and matures in 2024.
Unsecured Line of Credit
During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, we borrowed and paid off amounts on our unsecured Line of Credit ("LOC"), leaving no balance outstanding as of March 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2020, our LOC has a remaining borrowing capacity of $400 million with the option to increase the borrowing capacity by $200 million, subject to certain conditions. The LOC had $160 million outstanding at December 31, 2019.
As of March 31, 2020, we were in compliance in all material respects with the covenants in all our borrowing arrangements.

Note 9 – Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities
Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk
We record all derivatives at fair value. Our objective in utilizing interest rate derivatives is to add stability to our interest expense and to manage our exposure to interest rate movements. We do not enter into derivatives for speculative purposes. In connection with our $200.0 million senior unsecured term loan (the “Term Loan”), which has an interest rate of LIBOR plus 1.20% to 1.90% per annum, we entered into a three-year LIBOR Swap Agreement (the "Swap") allowing us to trade the variable interest rate on the Term Loan for a fixed interest rate. The Swap has a notional amount of $200.0 million of outstanding principal with an underlying LIBOR of 1.85% per annum for the first three years and matures on November 1, 2020. Based on the leverage as of March 31, 2020, our spread over LIBOR was 1.20% resulting in an estimated all-in interest rate of 3.05% per annum.

As of March 31, 2020, we had not posted any collateral related to this Swap.

Note 10 – Equity Incentive Awards
Our 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2014 Plan”) was adopted by the Board of Directors on March 11, 2014 and approved by our stockholders on May 13, 2014. During the quarter ended March 31, 2020, 90,933 shares of restricted stock were awarded to certain members of our management team. Of these shares, 50% are time-based awards, vesting in equal installments over a three-year period on January 29, 2021, January 31, 2022, and January 27, 2023, respectively, and have a grant date fair value of $3.3 million. The remaining 50% are performance-based awards vesting in equal installments on January 29, 2021, January 31, 2022, and January 27, 2023, respectively, upon meeting performance conditions as established by the Compensation Committee in the year of the vesting period. They are valued using the closing price at the grant date when all the key terms and conditions are known to all parties. The 15,154 shares of restricted stock subject to 2020 performance goals have a grant date fair value of $1.1 million.
Stock based compensation expense, reported in General and administrative expense on the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income, for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, was $3.0 million and $2.4 million, respectively.

Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies
We are involved in various legal and regulatory proceedings ("Proceedings") arising in the ordinary course of business. The Proceedings include, but are not limited to, legal claims made by employees, vendors and customers, and notices, consent decrees, information requests, additional permit requirements and other similar enforcement actions by governmental agencies relating to our utility infrastructure, including water and wastewater treatment plants and other waste treatment facilities and electrical systems. Additionally, in the ordinary course of business, our operations are subject to audit by various taxing authorities. Management believes these Proceedings taken together do not represent a material liability. In addition, to the extent any such Proceedings or audits relate to newly acquired Properties, we consider any potential indemnification obligations of sellers in our favor.
The Operating Partnership operates and manages Westwinds, a 720 site mobilehome community, and Nicholson Plaza, an adjacent shopping center, both located in San Jose, California pursuant to ground leases that expire on August 31, 2022 and do not contain extension options. The master lessor of these ground leases, The Nicholson Family Partnership (the “Nicholsons”), has expressed a desire to redevelop Westwinds, and in a written communication, they claimed that we were obligated to deliver the property free and clear of any and all subtenancies upon the expiration of the ground leases on August 31, 2022.

with any redevelopment, the City of San Jose’s conversion ordinance requires, among other things, that the landowner provide relocation, rental and purchase assistance to the impacted residents.
We believe the Nicholsons’ demand is unlawful, and on December 30, 2019, the Operating Partnership filed a complaint in California Superior Court for Santa Clara County, seeking declaratory relief pursuant to which it requested that the Court determine, among other things, that the Operating Partnership has no obligation to deliver the property free and clear of the mobilehome residents upon the expiration of the ground leases. The Operating Partnership filed an amended complaint on January 29, 2020. The Nicholsons filed a demand for arbitration on January 28, 2020, which they subsequently amended, pursuant to which they request a declaration that the Operating Partnership, as the “owner and manager” of Westwinds, is “required by the Ground Leases, and State and local law to deliver the Property free of any encumbrances or third-party claims at the expiration of the lease terms.” On February 3, 2020, the Nicholsons filed a motion in California Superior Court to compel arbitration and to stay the litigation, which motion is currently scheduled to be heard on June 25, 2020. We intend to continue to vigorously defend our interests in this matter. As of March 31, 2020 we have not made an accrual, as we are unable to predict the outcome of this matter or reasonably estimate any possible loss.

Note 12 – Reportable Segments


We have identified two reportable segments: (i) Property Operations and (ii) Home Sales and Rentals Operations. The Property Operations segment owns and operates land lease Properties and the Home Sales and Rentals Operations segment purchases, sells and leases homes at the Properties. The distribution of the Properties throughout the United States reflects our belief that geographic diversification helps insulate the portfolio from regional economic influences.
All revenues were from external customers and there is no customer who contributed 10% or more of our total revenues during the quarters ended March 31, 2020 or 2019.
