Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
September 30, 2022
(Unaudited and dollars in thousands, except share and per share data)


NOTE 1: Organization
Independence Realty Trust, Inc. (“IRT”), is a self-administered and self-managed Maryland real estate investment trust (“REIT”) which was formed on March 26, 2009. Our primary purposes are to acquire, own, operate, improve and manage multifamily apartment communities in non-gateway markets. As of September 30, 2022, we owned and operated 122 multifamily apartment properties that contain 36,176 units (unaudited) across non-gateway U.S. markets including Atlanta, Columbus, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Louisville, Memphis, Oklahoma City, and Raleigh. In addition, as of September 30, 2022, we owned interests in five unconsolidated joint ventures that are developing multifamily apartment communities. We own all of our assets and conduct substantially all of our operations through Independence Realty Operating Partnership, LP (“IROP”), of which we are the sole general partner.
As used herein, the terms “we,” “our” and “us” refer to Independence Realty Trust, Inc. and, as required by context, IROP and their subsidiaries.
On July 26, 2021, IRT, together with IROP, and IRSTAR Sub, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IRT (“IRT Merger Sub”), entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (“STAR”) and its operating partnership, Steadfast Apartment REIT Operating Partnership, L.P. (“STAR OP”). Consummation of the mergers provided for in the Merger Agreement (which we refer to collectively as the “STAR Merger”) was subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, receipt of IRT stockholder approval and STAR stockholder approval, which occurred on December 13, 2021. The STAR Merger closed on December 16, 2021. For further discussion, see Note 3: IRT and STAR Merger included in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
NOTE 2: Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
a. Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared by management in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although we believe that the included disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2021 included in our 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly our consolidated financial position and consolidated results of operations and cash flows are included. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The Company evaluated subsequent events through the date its financial statements were issued. No significant recognized or non-recognized subsequent events were noted other than those described in the footnotes.
b. Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements reflect our accounts and the accounts of IROP and its subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Pursuant to the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810, “Consolidation”, IROP is considered a variable interest entity of which we are the primary beneficiary. As our significant asset is our investment in IROP, substantially all of our assets and liabilities represent the assets and liabilities of IROP.
c. Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
September 30, 2022
(Unaudited and dollars in thousands, except share and per share data)

d. Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include cash held in banks and highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased. Cash, including amounts restricted, may at times exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation deposit insurance limit of $250 per institution. We mitigate credit risk by placing cash and cash equivalents with major financial institutions. To date, we have not experienced any losses on cash and cash equivalents.
e. Restricted Cash
Restricted cash includes escrows of our funds held by lenders to fund certain expenditures, such as real estate taxes and insurance, or to be released at our discretion upon the occurrence of certain pre-specified events. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, we had $35,829 and $29,699, respectively, of restricted cash.
f. Investments in Real Estate
Investments in real estate are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation. Costs, including internal costs, that both add value and appreciably extend the useful life of an asset are capitalized. Expenditures for repairs and maintenance are expensed as incurred.
Investments in real estate are classified as held for sale in the period in which certain criteria are met including when the sale of the asset is probable, and actions required to complete the plan of sale indicate that it is unlikely that significant changes to the plan of sale will be made or the plan of sale will be withdrawn.
Allocation of Purchase Price of Acquired Assets
In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 805, the properties we acquire are generally accounted for as asset acquisitions. Under asset acquisition accounting, the costs to acquire real estate, including transaction costs related to the acquisition, are accumulated and then allocated to the individual assets and liabilities acquired based upon their relative fair value. Transaction costs and fees incurred related to the financing of an acquisition are capitalized and amortized over the life of the related financing.
We estimate the fair value of acquired tangible assets (consisting of land, building and improvements), identified intangible assets (consisting of in-place leases), and assumed debt at the date of acquisition, based on the evaluation of information and estimates available at that date.
The aggregate value of in-place leases is determined by evaluating various factors, including the terms of the leases that are in place and assumed lease-up periods. The value assigned to in-place lease assets is amortized over the assumed lease up period, typically six months. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we acquired in-place leases with a value of $1,099 and $1,136, respectively, related to our acquisitions that are discussed further in Note 3: Investments in Real Estate. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded $79 and $53,367, respectively, of amortization for intangible assets. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recorded $368 and $1,203, respectively, of amortization for intangible assets. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we wrote-off fully amortized intangible assets of $0 and $58,048, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we wrote-off fully amortized intangible assets of $0 and $792, respectively. As of September 30, 2022, we expect to record additional amortization expense on current in-place intangible assets of $556 for the remainder of 2022.
Business Combinations
For properties we acquire or transactions we entered into that are accounted for as business combinations, we apply the acquisition method of accounting under ASC 805, which requires the identification of the acquiror, the determination date, and the recognition and measurement, at fair value, of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. To the extent that the fair value of net assets acquired differs from the fair value of consideration paid, ASC 805 requires the recognition of goodwill or a gain from a bargain purchase price, if any. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we incurred merger and integration costs of $275 and $3,477. These amounts were expensed as incurred, and are included in the consolidated statements of operations in the item titled "Merger and integration costs", and primarily consist of technology migration and implementation, consulting and professional fees and employee severance costs.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
Management evaluates the recoverability of our investment in real estate assets, including related identifiable intangible assets, in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 360, “Property, Plant and Equipment”. This statement requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that recoverability of the assets is not assured.
Management reviews our long-lived assets on an ongoing basis and evaluates the recoverability of the carrying value when there is an indicator of impairment. An impairment charge is recorded when it is determined that the carrying value of the asset exceeds the fair value. The estimated cash flows used for the impairment analysis and the determination of estimated fair value are based on our plans for the respective assets and our views of market and economic conditions. The estimates consider matters such as current and historical rental rates, occupancies for the respective and/or comparable properties, and recent sales data for comparable properties. Changes in estimated future cash flows due to changes in our plans or views of market and economic conditions could result in recognition of impairment losses, which, under the applicable accounting guidance, could be substantial.
Depreciation Expense
Depreciation expense for real estate assets is computed using a straight-line method based on a life of 40 years for buildings and improvements and five to ten years for furniture, fixtures, and equipment. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded $49,268 and $146,222 of depreciation expense, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we recorded $17,016 and $49,496 of depreciation expense, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we wrote-off fully depreciated fixed assets of $0 and $3,092, respectively.
Casualty Related Costs
Occasionally, we incur losses at our communities from wind storms, floods, fires and similar hazards. Sometimes, a portion of these losses are not fully covered by our insurance policies due to deductibles. In these cases, we estimate the carrying value of the damaged property and record a casualty loss for the difference between the estimated carrying value and the insurance proceeds. Any amount of insurance recovery in excess of the amount of the losses incurred is considered a gain contingency and is recorded in casualty (gains) losses, net when the proceeds are received. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, we recorded $191 and $7,176 of net casualty gains, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, we incurred $0 and $359 of casualty losses, respectively.
g. Investments in Real Estate Under Development
We capitalize direct and indirect project costs incurred during the development period such as construction, insurance, architectural, legal, interest costs, and real estate taxes. At such time as the development is considered substantially complete, the capitalization of certain indirect costs such as real estate taxes, interest costs, and all project-related costs in real estate under development are reclassified to investments in real estate.

As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the carrying value of our investments in real estate under development totaled $86,763 and $41,777, respectively, and was recorded as a separate line item on the face of our consolidated balance sheet.
h. Investments in Unconsolidated Real Estate Entities
We invest in joint ventures in which we exercise significant influence but do not control the major decisions of the joint venture. Therefore, we account for these investments using the equity method of accounting. Under the equity method of accounting, the investments are carried at cost plus our share of net earnings or losses. As of September 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the carrying value of our investments in joint ventures totaled $70,608 and $24,999, respectively, and were recorded as a separate line item on the face of our consolidated balance sheet. We recognized losses of $1,477 and $2,411 from equity method investments during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, and these losses were recorded in loss from investments in unconsolidated real estate entities on the face of our consolidated statements of operations.

i. Revenue and Expenses
Rental and Other Property Revenue
We apply FASB ASC Topic 842, “Leases” with respect to our accounting for rental income. We primarily lease apartment units under operating leases generally with terms of one year or less. Rental payments are generally due monthly and rental revenues are recognized on an accrual basis when earned. We have elected to account for lease (i.e. fixed payments including base rent) and non-lease components (i.e. tenant reimbursements and certain other service fees) as a single combined operating lease component since (1) the timing and pattern of transfer of the lease and non-lease components is the same, (2) the lease component is the predominant element, and (3) the combined single lease component would be classified as an operating lease.
We make ongoing estimates of the collectability of our base rents, tenant reimbursements, and other service fees included within rental and other property revenue. If collectability is not probable, we adjust rental and other property income for the amount of uncollectible revenue.
j. Derivative Instruments
We may use derivative financial instruments to hedge all or a portion of the interest rate risk associated with our borrowings. The principal objective of such arrangements is to minimize the risks and/or costs associated with our operating and financial structure, as well as to hedge specific anticipated transactions. While these instruments may impact our periodic cash flows, they benefit us by minimizing the risks and/or costs previously described. The counterparties to these contractual arrangements are major financial institutions with which we and our affiliates may also have other financial relationships. In the event of nonperformance by the counterparties, we are potentially exposed to credit loss. However, because of the high credit ratings of the counterparties, we do not anticipate that any of the counterparties will fail to meet their obligations.
In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives and Hedging”, we measure each derivative instrument at fair value and record such amounts in our consolidated balance sheets as either an asset or liability. For derivatives designated as cash flow hedges, the changes in the fair value of the effective portions of the derivative are reported in other comprehensive income and changes in the fair value of the ineffective portions of cash flow hedges, if any, are recognized in earnings. For derivatives not designated as hedges (or designated as fair value hedges), the changes in fair value of the derivative instrument are recognized in earnings. Any derivatives that we designate in hedge relationships are done so at inception. At inception, we determine whether or not the derivative is highly effective in offsetting changes in the designated interest rate risk associated with the identified indebtedness using regression analysis. At each reporting period, we update our regression analysis and use the hypothetical derivative method to measure any ineffectiveness.
k. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Where available, fair value is based on observable market prices or parameters or derived from such prices or parameters. Where observable prices or inputs are not available, valuation models are applied. These valuation techniques involve management estimation and judgment, the degree of which is dependent on the price transparency for the instruments or market and the instruments’ complexity for disclosure purposes. Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in our consolidated balance sheets are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure their value. Hierarchical levels, as defined in FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” and directly related to the amount of subjectivity associated with the inputs to fair valuations of these assets and liabilities, are as follows:
Level 1: Valuations are based on unadjusted, quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities at the measurement date. The types of assets carried at Level 1 fair value generally are equity securities listed in active markets. As such, valuations of these investments do not entail a significant degree of judgment.
12

(Unaudited and dollars in thousands, except share and per share data)

Level 2: Valuations are based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active or for which all significant inputs are observable, either directly or indirectly.
Level 3: Inputs are unobservable for the asset or liability, and include situations where there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability. In certain cases, the inputs used to measure fair value may fall into different levels of the fair value hierarchy. In such cases, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurement in its entirety falls has been determined based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, and considers factors specific to the asset or liability.
FASB ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments” requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate that value. Given that cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash are short term in nature with limited fair value volatility, the carrying amount is deemed to be a reasonable approximation of fair value and the fair value input is classified as a Level 1 fair value measurement. The fair value input for the derivatives is classified as a Level 2 fair value measurement within the fair value hierarchy. The fair value inputs for our unsecured credit facility and term loans are classified as Level 2 fair value measurements within the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of mortgage indebtedness is based on a discounted cash flows valuation technique. As this technique utilizes current credit spreads, which are generally unobservable, this is classified as a Level 3 fair value measurement within the fair value hierarchy. We determine appropriate credit spreads based on the type of debt and its maturity. There were no transfers between levels in the fair value hierarchy for the nine months ended September 30, 2022. The following table summarizes the carrying amount and the fair value of our financial instruments as of the periods indicated:

l. Deferred Financing Costs
Costs incurred in connection with debt financing are deferred and classified within indebtedness and charged to interest expense over the terms of the related debt agreements, under the effective interest method.
m. Office Leases
In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 842, “Leases”, lessees are required to recognize a right-of-use asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet at the lease commencement date for all leases, except those leases with terms of less than a year. We lease corporate office space under leases with terms of up to 10 years and that may include extension

options, but that do not include any residual value guarantees or restrictive covenants. As of September 30, 2022, we have $3,049 of operating lease right-of-use assets and $3,368 of operating lease liabilities related to our corporate office leases. The operating lease right-of-use assets are presented within other assets and the operating lease liabilities are presented within other liabilities in our consolidated balance sheet. We recorded $252 and $1,096 of total operating lease expense during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, which is recorded within property management expense and general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations.
n. Income Taxes
We have elected to be taxed as a REIT. Accordingly, we recorded no income tax expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021.
To qualify as a REIT, we must meet certain organizational and operational requirements, including a requirement to distribute at least 90% of our ordinary taxable income to stockholders. As a REIT, we generally are not subject to federal income tax on taxable income that we distribute to our stockholders. If we fail to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, we will be subject to federal income taxes on our taxable income at regular corporate rates and will not be permitted to qualify for treatment as a REIT for federal income tax purposes for four years following the year during which qualification is lost unless the Internal Revenue Service grants us relief under certain statutory provisions. Such an event could materially adversely affect our net income and net cash available for distribution to stockholders; however, we believe that we are organized and operate in such a manner as to qualify and maintain treatment as a REIT and intend to operate in such a manner so that we will remain qualified as a REIT for federal income tax purposes.
o. Employee Retention Credit
Under the terms of the March 27, 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), we are eligible and applied for assistance in the form of a refundable employee retention credit. Since applicable GAAP guidance is limited, we adopted an accounting policy by analogizing to International Accounting Standard 20 “Accounting for Government Grants” to recognize employee retention credits as a reimbursement of payroll related expenses within property operating expenses, property management expenses, and general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. During the three months ended September 30, 2022, we received employee retention credit refunds totaling $6,238 and recognized $738 in property operating expenses, $212 in property management expenses and $211 in general and administrative expenses representing a reimbursement of previously paid employer payroll taxes, $788 in property operating expenses and $6 in property management expenses representing a reimbursement for retention costs and $257 representing interest within other income (expense) in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. The remainder will be included in accounts payable and accrued expenses in our condensed consolidated balance sheets and recognized on a systematic basis through December 2023 as a reimbursement of payroll related expenses attributable to off-cycle compensation increases awarded to employees beginning in July 2022 and intended to support employee retention during the pandemic and its ongoing effect on the macroeconomic environment.
