REALTY INCOME CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2021
(unaudited)
1.Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements of Realty Income Corporation (“Realty Income”, the “Company”, “we”, “our” or “us”) were prepared from our books and records without audit and include all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) necessary to present a fair statement of results for the interim periods presented. Readers of this quarterly report should refer to our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, which are included in our 2020 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as certain disclosures that would substantially duplicate those contained in the audited financial statements have not been included in this report. Unless otherwise indicated, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States (U.S.) dollars.
At September 30, 2021 we owned 7,018 properties, located in all 50 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom (U.K.) and Spain, consisting of approximately 125.0 million leasable square feet.
2.Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Procedures
Principles of Consolidation. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Realty Income and other subsidiaries for which we make operating and financial decisions (i.e., control), after elimination of all material intercompany balances and transactions. We consolidate entities that we control and record a noncontrolling interest for the portion that we do not own. Noncontrolling interest that was created or assumed as part of a business combination or asset acquisition was recognized at fair value as of the date of the transaction (see note 11). We have no unconsolidated investments.
Federal Income Taxes. We have elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. We believe we have qualified and continue to qualify as a REIT. Under the REIT operating structure, we are permitted to deduct dividends paid to our stockholders in determining our taxable income.  Assuming our dividends equal or exceed our taxable net income, we generally will not be required to pay federal corporate income taxes on such income. Accordingly, no provision has been made for federal income taxes in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, except for federal income taxes of our taxable REIT subsidiaries. The income taxes recorded on our consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income represent amounts accrued or paid by Realty Income and its subsidiaries for city and state income and franchise taxes and for U.K. income taxes.
Lease Revenue Recognition and Accounts Receivable. The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to limit its spread are negatively impacting the economy across many industries, including the industries in which some of our clients operate. These impacts may continue as the duration and severity of the pandemic increases. As a result, we have closely monitored the collectability of our accounts receivable and continue to evaluate the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to limit its spread on our business and industry segments as the situation continues to evolve and more information becomes available.
We must continue to assess the probability of collecting substantially all of the lease payments to which we are entitled under the original lease contract as required under Topic 842, Leases. If a company concludes collection of substantially all lease payments under a lease is less than probable, rental revenue recognized for that lease is limited to cash received going forward, existing operating lease receivables must be written off as an adjustment to rental revenue, and no further operating lease receivables are recorded for that lease until such future determination is made that substantially all lease payments under that lease are now considered probable. If a company subsequently concludes collection of substantially all lease payments under a lease is probable, a reversal of lease receivables previously written off is recognized.
The majority of concessions granted to our clients during 2020 and the nine months ended September 30, 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic have been rent deferrals with the original lease term unchanged. We currently anticipate future concessions to be similar. In accordance with the guidance provided by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) staff, we have elected to account for these leases as if the right of deferral existed in the lease contract and therefore continue to recognize lease revenue in accordance with the lease contract in effect. In limited circumstances, the undiscounted cash flows resulting from deferrals granted increased significantly from original lease terms, which required us to account for these as lease modifications, and resulted in an insignificant
-6-

impact to rental revenue for nine months ended September 30, 2021. Similarly, rent abatements granted, which are also accounted for as lease modifications, impacted our rental revenue by an insignificant amount for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
Unless otherwise specified, references to reserves recorded as a reduction of rental revenue include amounts reserved for in the current period, as well as unrecognized contractual rental revenue and unrecognized straight-line rental revenue for leases accounted for on a cash basis. References to reserve reversals recorded as increases to rental revenue include amounts where the accounting for recognition of rental revenue and straight-line rental revenue has been moved from the cash to the accrual basis. The following table summarizes reserves and reserve reversals to rental revenue (dollars in millions):
Three months ended September 30,Nine months ended September 30,
2021202020212020
Rental revenue reserves (reserve reversals)$(0.8)$21.8 $15.0 $29.3 
Straight-line rent reserves (reserve reversals)(2.3)2.3 (1.1)5.1 
Total rental revenue reserves (reserve reversals)$(3.1)$24.1 $13.9 $34.4 
As of September 30, 2021, other than the information related to the reserves recorded to date, we do not have any further client specific information that would change our assessment that collection of substantially all of the future lease payments under our existing leases is probable. However, since the conversations regarding rent collections for our clients affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are ongoing and we do not currently know the types of future concessions, if any, that will ultimately be granted, there may be impacts in future periods that could change this assessment as the situation continues to evolve and as more information becomes available.
Newly Issued Accounting Standards. In July 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-05 establishing Topic 842, Lessors - Certain Leases with Variable Lease Payments. ASU 2021-05 improves ASC 842 classification guidance as it relates to a lessor's accounting for certain leases with variable lease payments. This guidance requires a lessor to classify a lease with variable payments that do not depend on an index or rate as an operating lease if either a sales-type lease or direct financing lease classification would trigger a day-one loss. This guidance is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2021, with early adoption permitted. We are currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of ASU 2021-05 on our consolidated financial statements.
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04 establishing Topic 848, Reference Rate Reform. ASU 2020-04 contains practical expedients for reference rate reform related activities that impact debt, leases, derivatives and other contracts. The guidance is optional and is effective between March 12, 2020 and December 31, 2022. The guidance may be elected over time as reference rate reform activities occur. We are currently evaluating the impact that the expected market transition from LIBOR to alternative references rates will have on our financial statements as well as the applicability of the aforementioned expedients and exceptions provided in ASU 2020-04.
Reclassification. Starting with the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, we began presenting 'Income taxes,' which was previously presented in 'Expenses,' below a newly captioned subtotal for 'Income before income taxes' within our consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income. Prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.
3.Agreement and Plan of Merger
On April 29, 2021, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger, as amended, or the Merger Agreement, with VEREIT, Inc., or VEREIT, its operating partnership, VEREIT Operating Partnership, L.P., or VEREIT OP, and two newly formed wholly-owned subsidiaries of us. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, (i) one of the newly formed subsidiaries of us agreed to merge with and into VEREIT OP, with VEREIT OP as the surviving entity, which we refer to as the Partnership Merger, and (ii) immediately thereafter, VEREIT agreed to merge with and into the other newly formed subsidiary of us, with our subsidiary as the surviving corporation, which we refer to as the Merger and, together with the Partnership Merger, the Mergers.
On November 1, 2021, we completed our acquisition of VEREIT, and the Mergers were consummated. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement and subject to the terms thereof, upon the consummation of the Mergers, (i) each outstanding share of VEREIT common stock, and each outstanding common partnership unit of VEREIT OP owned by any of its partners other than VEREIT, Realty Income or their respective affiliates, was automatically
-7-

converted into 0.705 of newly issued shares of our common stock, and (ii) each VEREIT OP outstanding common unit owned by VEREIT, Realty Income or their respective affiliates remained outstanding as partnership interests in the surviving entity. For more information, see Note 22, Subsequent Events.
Following the Mergers, we intend to contribute certain of our office real estate properties to a newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary, Orion Office REIT, Inc., or Orion, and distribute all of the outstanding shares of Orion common stock to our stockholders (including legacy VEREIT stockholders who received shares of our common stock in the Mergers) on a pro rata basis at a rate of one share of Orion common stock for every ten shares of Realty Income common stock held on the applicable record date, which we refer to as the Orion Divestiture. We have currently set a record date for the distribution of shares in the Orion Divestiture for November 2, 2021 and expect the distribution to occur on November 12, 2021. Following the consummation of the Orion Divestiture, Orion will operate as a separate, independent public company.
A.    Merger-related Costs
In conjunction with our acquisition of VEREIT, we incurred approximately $16.8 million and $30.1 million of merger-related transaction costs during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, respectively. The merger-related costs incurred to date primarily consist of advisory fees, attorney fees, accountant fees and SEC filing fees.
In addition, we have engaged service providers, including investment banks and advisors, to help us negotiate the terms of the Merger and to advise us on other merger-related matters. In connection with these services, we expect to be required to pay success-based fees to the extent that certain conditions, including the closing of the Merger and consummation of the Orion Divestiture, are met. As of September 30, 2021, we expect to incur approximately $19.0 million of such success fees.
B.    Litigation Relating to the Mergers
To date, purported stockholders of VEREIT filed 12 lawsuits challenging disclosures related to the Merger (
Stein v. VEREIT, Inc., et. al., Case No. 1:21-cv-01409 (D. Ct. Md., June 7, 2021) (the “Stein Complaint”); Bowles v. VEREIT, Inc., et. al., Case No. 1:21-cv-00845 (D. Ct.

July 2, 2021) (the “Ciccotelli Complaint”); Upton v. VEREIT, Inc., et. al., Case No. 1:21-cv-06129 (D. Ct. S.D.N.Y July 16, 2021) (the “Upton Complaint”); Matten v.

The Jenkins Complaint names VEREIT, the members of the VEREIT board of directors, Realty Income, Merger Sub 1 and Merger Sub 2 as defendants. The Boyko Complaint names Realty Income and the members of the Realty Income board of directors as defendants. The Demand Letter is addressed to Realty Income and the members of the Realty Income board of directors.
The Complaints each allege generally that the entities and individual defendants named in such Complaint violated Section 14(a) and Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder and that the individual defendants violated Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act by preparing and disseminating a registration statement that misstates or omits certain allegedly material information. The Demand Letter includes similar allegations. Furthermore, the Jenkins Complaint also alleges that: (1) members of the VEREIT board of directors breached their fiduciary duties by entering into the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement through a flawed and unfair process and by failing to disclose

all material information to VEREIT’s stockholders; and (2) VEREIT, Realty Income, Merger Sub 1 and Merger Sub 2 each aided and abetted such breach of fiduciary duty by the VEREIT board of directors.
Each Complaint seeks, among other things, injunctive relief enjoining the consummation of the Merger, if the Merger is consummated, rescission or rescissory damages and an award of the plaintiff’s costs, including attorneys’ and experts’ fees. The defendants believe that all of the claims asserted in the Complaints are without merit and intend to defend against them vigorously. On July 30, 2021, VEREIT filed a Form 8-K containing supplemental disclosures regarding the Mergers and related transactions in response to allegations set forth in the Complaints and the Demand letter. We have determined that there is a reasonable possibility that we and/or VEREIT will incur losses associated with the Complaints and Demand letter, though the amount of the reasonably possible loss or range of losses is not expected to be material. Accordingly, no accrual for merger-related litigation matters has been recorded as of September 30, 2021. However, litigation is inherently uncertain and there can be no assurance regarding the likelihood that the defendants’ defense of the actions will be successful. The outcome of these lawsuits can’t be predicted and additional lawsuits arising out of the Mergers may also be filed in the future.

(1)The initial average cash lease yield for a property is generally computed as estimated contractual first year cash net operating income, which, in the case of a net leased property, is equal to the aggregate cash base rent for the first full year of each lease, divided by the total cost of the property. Since it is possible that a client could default on the payment of contractual rent, we cannot provide assurance that the actual return on the funds invested will remain at the percentages listed above. Contractual net operating income used in the calculation of initial average cash yield includes approximately $3.2 million received as settlement credits for 35 properties as reimbursement of free rent periods for the nine months ended September 30, 2021.
In the case of a property under development or expansion, the contractual lease rate is generally fixed such that rent varies based on the actual total investment in order to provide a fixed rate of return. When the lease does not provide for a fixed rate of return on a property under development or expansion, the initial average cash lease yield is computed as follows: estimated cash net operating income (determined by the lease) for the first full year of each lease, divided by our projected total investment in the property, including land, construction and capitalized interest costs.

(2)None of our investments during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 caused any one client to be 10% or more of our total assets at September 30, 2021.
(3)Includes one U.K. development property that represents an investment of £4.7 million Sterling during the nine months ended September 30, 2021, converted at the applicable exchange rate on the funding date.
(4)Our clients occupying the new properties are 80.2% retail and 19.8% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 43% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 is from investment grade rated clients, their subsidiaries or affiliated companies.
