As of the end of the second quarter, the Company increased its corporate liquidity from approximately $1.2 billion to approximately $1.8 billion, comprised of $278.9 million in cash and cash equivalents and the full $1.5 billion of availability under its credit facility.  In addition, secured debt was reduced by $11.3 million, bringing the total amount reduced for the year to $132.6 million.

Capital Market Activity
The Company issued $600.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.40% senior notes due 2028 at an issue price of 99.144% of par value. Proceeds from the senior notes along with borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility and cash on hand have been or will be used to fund the purchase of a portion of or the repayment at maturity of VEREIT's 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due December 2020, of which $50.2 million was purchased on June 25, 2020 with $271.6 million principal amount remaining. The Company also utilized proceeds to fund the partial redemption of $150.0 million of VEREIT's 6.7% Series F preferred stock on July 22, 2020 and repay borrowings under the Operating Partnership's revolving credit facility.

Consolidated Financial Statistics
Financial Statistics as of the quarter ended June 30, 2020 are as follows:  Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA of 6.1x, Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio of 3.1x, Unencumbered Asset Ratio of 81.2%, Net Debt to Gross Real Estate Investments of 39.5%, and Weighted Average Debt Term of 4.8 years.  Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA includes the negative effects of portfolio enhancing abatement amendments, which largely impact second quarter revenue.  In exchange for the abatements, increased lease term and other economic benefits were obtained.  Excluding this, Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA would have been 5.8x.

Common Stock Dividend Information
On August 5, 2020, the Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend for the third quarter of 2020 of $0.077 per share consistent with last quarter's dividend.  The dividend will be paid on October 15, 2020 to common stockholders of record as of September 30, 2020.  The Board of Directors has not made any decisions with respect to its dividend policy beyond the third quarter and will continue to monitor the current environment.

2020 Guidance
As previously stated, given the economic uncertainty and rapidly-evolving circumstances related to COVID-19, the Company has withdrawn its previously issued 2020 guidance and is not providing an updated outlook at this time.

Management Commentary
Glenn J. Rufrano, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Rent collection for Q2 was higher at 85% than previously announced and was further increased to 91% for July.  In addition, liquidity improved to $1.8 billion with the $600.0 million bond issuance, which now finances our December 2020 convertible debt maturity and leaves us with no corporate bonds due until 2024.  While we have had better than expected results on rent collections, we chose to maintain capital within the balance sheet, maximizing value to all stakeholders in the form of liquidity and future growth.  Our board has, therefore, decided to maintain the current dividend, which at a 51% payout ratio for Q2, is a solid base on which to grow to a more traditional level."

Real Estate Portfolio
As of June 30, 2020, the Company's portfolio consisted of 3,836 properties with total portfolio occupancy of 98.8%, investment grade tenancy of 37.0% and a weighted-average remaining lease term of 8.5 years, increasing from 8.3 years.

Real Estate Leasing Activity
During the quarter, the Company entered into 64 new and renewal leases on approximately 2.1 million square feet, or 2.3% of the portfolio.  Leasing activity included 0.9 million square feet of early renewals.  This activity does not include pandemic related amendments.

Acquisitions
During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company had acquisitions of $10.0 million in the form of a mezzanine position for last-mile distribution facilities.

Dispositions
During the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company disposed of 17 properties for an aggregate sales price of $66.2 million. Of the total disposition amount, $14.7 million was used in the total weighted average cash cap rate calculation of 6.0%, including $4.7 million in net sales of Red Lobster restaurants.  The gain on second quarter sales was approximately $9.0 million.

About the Data

Rent collection percentages disclosed are based on contractual rent and recoveries paid by tenants to cover estimated tax, insurance and common area maintenance expenses, including the Company's pro rata share of such amounts related to properties owned by unconsolidated joint ventures.  Percentages are calculated using a denominator that reflects pre-COVID-19 rents that has not been adjusted for any rent relief granted.  Amounts exclude any tenants in bankruptcy.

In the second quarter of 2020, the Company updated its definition of Normalized EBITDA to include the impact of straight-line rent, in order to be consistent with peer companies.  The Company recast the data presented for prior periods, including ratios impacted by the change.

Descriptions of FFO and AFFO, EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA, Principal Outstanding and Adjusted Principal Outstanding, Net Debt, Interest Expense, Excluding Non-Cash Amortization, Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio, Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Annualized Ratio, Net Debt Leverage Ratio, and Unencumbered Asset Ratio are provided below. Refer to the subsequent tables for reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and the calculations of these financial ratios.

Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ("EBITDA"), EBITDA for Real Estate ("EBITDAre"), Normalized EBITDA and Normalized EBTIDA Adjusted for Abated Rent

Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, as discussed below, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("Nareit") has promulgated a supplemental performance measure known as Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate ("EBITDAre"). Nareit defines EBITDAre as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, impairment write-downs on real estate, gains or losses from disposition of property and our pro rata share of EBITDAre adjustments related to unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We calculated EBITDAre in accordance with Nareit's definition described above.

In addition to EBITDAre, we use Normalized EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent as non-GAAP supplemental performance measures to evaluate the operating performance of the Company. Normalized EBITDA, as defined by the Company, represents EBITDAre, modified to exclude non-routine items such as acquisition-related expenses, litigation and non-routine costs, net, net revenue or expense earned or incurred that is related to the services agreement associated with a discontinued operation, gains or losses on sale of investment securities or mortgage notes receivable, payments on fully reserved loan receivables and restructuring expenses. We also exclude certain non-cash items such as impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, gains or losses on derivatives, gains or losses on the extinguishment or forgiveness of debt, write-off of program development costs, and amortization of intangibles, above-market lease assets and below-market lease liabilities. Normalized EBITDA omits the Normalized EBITDA impact of Excluded Properties. Management believes that excluding these costs provides investors with supplemental performance information that is consistent with the performance models and analysis used by management, and provides investors a view of the performance of our portfolio over time. Management also believes that Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent is useful to investors because the period for which rent is abated is less than 12 months and therefore should not be annualized.  Therefore, EBITDA, EBITDAre, Normalized EBITDA and Normalized EBTIDA Adjusted for Abated Rent should not be considered as an alternative to net income, as computed in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses Normalized EBITDA as one measure of its operating performance when formulating corporate goals and evaluating the effectiveness of the Company's strategies. EBITDA, EBITDAre, Normalized EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Excluded Properties

Excluded Properties are properties for which (i) the related mortgage loan is in default, and (ii) management decides to transfer the properties to the lender in connection with settling the mortgage note obligation. Certain non-GAAP measures and operating metrics omit the impact of such properties for the month beginning with the date that such criteria are met and ending with the disposition date, in order to better reflect the ongoing operations of the Company.

At and during the three months ended June 30, 2020 and March 31, 2020, there were no Excluded Properties. At and during the three months ended June 30, 2019, there was one Excluded Property which was an office property comprising 145,186 square feet, of which 6,926 square feet was vacant, with Principal Outstanding of $19.5 million.

Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio

Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio is the sum of (i) Interest Expense, excluding non-cash amortization, (ii) secured debt principal amortization on Adjusted Principal Outstanding and (iii) dividends attributable to preferred shares divided by Normalized EBITDA. Management believes that Fixed Charge Coverage Ratio is a useful supplemental measure of our ability to satisfy fixed financing obligations.

Fixed Rate Debt

Fixed Rate Debt includes variable rate debt effectively fixed through the use of interest rate swap agreements.

Funds from Operations ("FFO") and Adjusted Funds from Operations ("AFFO")

Due to certain unique operating characteristics of real estate companies, as discussed below, the Nareit, an industry trade group, has promulgated a supplemental performance measure known as funds from operations ("FFO"), which we believe to be an appropriate supplemental performance measure to reflect the operating performance of a REIT. FFO is not equivalent to our net income or loss as determined under U.S. GAAP.

Nareit defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP adjusted for gains or losses from disposition of property, depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, impairment write-downs on real estate, and our pro rata share of FFO adjustments related to unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We calculate FFO in accordance with Nareit's definition described above.

In addition to FFO, we use adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") as a non-GAAP supplemental financial performance measure to evaluate the operating performance of the Company. AFFO, as defined by the Company, excludes from FFO non-routine items such as acquisition-related expenses, litigation and non-routine costs, net, net revenue or expense earned or incurred that is related to the services agreement associated with a discontinued operation, gains or losses on sale of investment securities or mortgage notes receivable, payments on fully reserved loan receivables and restructuring expenses. We also exclude certain non-cash items such as impairments of goodwill and intangible assets, straight-line rent, net direct financing lease adjustments, gains or losses on derivatives, reserves for loan loss, gains or losses on the extinguishment or forgiveness of debt, non-current portion of the tax benefit or expense, equity-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets, deferred financing costs, premiums and discounts on debt and investments, above-market lease assets and below-market lease liabilities. We omit the impact of the Excluded Properties and related non-recourse mortgage notes from FFO to calculate AFFO. Management believes that excluding these costs from FFO provides investors with supplemental performance information that is consistent with the performance models and analysis used by management, and provides investors a view of the performance of our portfolio over time. AFFO allows for a comparison of the performance of our operations with other publicly-traded REITs, as AFFO, or an equivalent measure, is routinely reported by publicly-traded REITs, and we believe often used by analysts and investors for comparison purposes.

For all of these reasons, we believe FFO and AFFO, in addition to net income (loss), as defined by U.S. GAAP, are helpful supplemental performance measures and useful in understanding the various ways in which our management evaluates the performance of the Company over time. However, not all REITs calculate FFO and AFFO the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) and are not intended to be used as a liquidity measure indicative of cash flow available to fund our cash needs. Neither the SEC, Nareit, nor any other regulatory body has evaluated the acceptability of the exclusions used to adjust FFO in order to calculate AFFO and its use as a non-GAAP financial performance measure.

Gross Real Estate Investments

Gross Real Estate Investments represent total gross real estate and related assets of Operating Properties, equity investments in the Cole REITs, investment in direct financing leases, investment securities backed by real estate and mortgage notes receivable, and the Company's pro rata share of such amounts related to properties owned by unconsolidated joint ventures, net of gross intangible lease liabilities. We believe that the presentation of Gross Real Estate Investments, which shows our total investments in real estate and related assets, in connection with Net Debt, provides useful information to investors to assess our overall financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage. Gross Real Estate Investments should not be considered as an alternative to the Company's real estate investments balance as determined in accordance with GAAP or any other GAAP financial measures and should only be considered together with, and as a supplement to, the Company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Interest Expense, Excluding Non-Cash Amortization

Interest Expense, excluding non-cash amortization is a non-GAAP measure that represents interest expense incurred on the outstanding principal balance of our debt and the Company's pro rata share of the unconsolidated joint ventures' outstanding principal balance.  This measure excludes (i) the amortization of deferred financing costs, premiums and discounts, which is included in interest expense in accordance with GAAP, and (ii) the impact of Excluded Properties and related non-recourse mortgage notes. We believe that the presentation of Interest Expense, excluding non-cash amortization, which shows the interest expense on our contractual debt obligations, provides useful information to investors to assess our overall solvency and financial flexibility. Interest Expense, excluding non-cash amortization should not be considered as an alternative to the Company's interest expense as determined in accordance with GAAP or any other GAAP financial measures and should only be considered together with and as a supplement to the Company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Net Debt Leverage Ratio

Net Debt Leverage Ratio equals Net Debt divided by Gross Real Estate Investments. We believe that the presentation of Net Debt Leverage Ratio provides useful information to investors because our management reviews Net Debt Leverage Ratio as part of its management of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage.

Net Debt, Principal Outstanding and Adjusted Principal Outstanding

Principal Outstanding is a non-GAAP measure that represents the Company's outstanding principal debt balance, excluding certain GAAP adjustments, such as premiums and discounts, financing and issuance costs, and related accumulated amortization. Adjusted Principal Outstanding includes the Company's pro rata share of the unconsolidated joint ventures' outstanding principal debt balance and omits the outstanding principal balance of mortgage notes secured by Excluded Properties. We believe that the presentation of Principal Outstanding and Adjusted Principal Outstanding, which show our contractual debt obligations, provides useful information to investors to assess our overall financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage. Principal Outstanding and Adjusted Principal Outstanding should not be considered as alternatives to the Company's consolidated debt balance as determined in accordance with GAAP or any other GAAP financial measures and should only be considered together with, and as a supplement to, the Company's financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Net Debt is a non-GAAP measure used to show the Company's Adjusted Principal Outstanding, less all cash and cash equivalents and the Company's pro rata share of unconsolidated joint ventures' cash and cash equivalents. We believe that the presentation of Net Debt provides useful information to investors because our management reviews Net Debt as part of its management of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage.

Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Annualized Ratio

Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Annualized ("Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA") equals Net Debt divided by the respective quarter Normalized EBITDA multiplied by four. We believe that the presentation of Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Annualized provides useful information to investors because our management reviews Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Annualized as part of its management of our overall liquidity, financial flexibility, capital structure and leverage.

Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent Annualized Ratio

Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent Annualized equals Net Debt divided by the respective quarter Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent multiplied by four. Management believes that Net Debt to Normalized EBITDA Adjusted for Abated Rent Annualized is useful to investors because the period for which rent is abated is less than 12 months and therefore should not be annualized.

Unencumbered Asset Ratio

Unencumbered Asset Ratio equals unencumbered Gross Real Estate Investments divided by Gross Real Estate Investments. Management believes that Unencumbered Asset Ratio is a useful supplemental measure of our overall liquidity and leverage.

Forward-Looking Statements

Information set forth herein contains "forward-looking statements"  which reflect the Company's expectations and projections regarding future events and plans, the Company's future financial condition, results of operations, liquidity and business, including acquisitions, rent receipts, rent relief requests, and rent relief granted, debt levels, maturities and refinancings, liquidity, the payment of future dividends and the impact of COVID-19 on the Company's business. Generally, the words "anticipates," "assumes," "believes," "continues," "could," "estimates," "expects," "goals," "intends," "may," "plans," "projects," "seeks," "should," "targets," "will," variations of such words and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on information currently available and involve a number of known and unknown assumptions and risks, uncertainties and other factors, which are difficult to predict and beyond the Company's control, that could cause actual events and plans or could cause the Company's business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Further, information regarding historical rent collections should not serve as an indication of future rent collections.

The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: the duration and extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our business and the businesses of our tenants (including their ability to timely make rent payments) and the economy generally; federal, state or local legislation or regulation that could impact the timely payment of rent by tenants in light of COVID-19; the Company's ability to renew leases, lease vacant space or re-lease space as leases expire on favorable terms or at all; risks associated with tenant, geographic and industry concentrations with respect to the Company's properties; risks accompanying the management of its industrial partnership and office partnership; the impact of impairment charges in respect of certain of the Company's properties; unexpected costs or liabilities that may arise from potential dispositions, including related to limited partnership, tenant-in-common and Delaware statutory trust real estate programs and the Company's management with respect to such programs; competition in the acquisition and disposition of properties and in the leasing of its properties including that the Company may be unable to acquire, dispose of, or lease properties on advantageous terms or at all; risks associated with bankruptcies or insolvencies of tenants, from tenant defaults generally or from the unpredictability of the business plans and financial condition of the Company's tenants, which are heightened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; risks associated with the Company's substantial indebtedness, including that such indebtedness may affect the Company's ability to pay dividends and that the terms and restrictions within the agreements governing the Company's indebtedness may restrict its borrowing and operating flexibility; the ability to retain or hire key personnel; and continuation or deterioration of current market conditions. Additional factors that may affect future results are contained in the Company's filings with the SEC, which are available at the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying assumptions or factors, new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
