CEO Comments

"Our solid financial and operating performance for the fourth quarter contributed to excellent results in 2015," said John P. Case, Realty Income's Chief Executive Officer. "Our 2015 AFFO per share increased 6.6% to $2.74, driven primarily by a near-record volume of property-level acquisitions, favorable pricing and terms on our capital raising activities, and healthy portfolio occupancy. These results supported multiple dividend increases throughout 2015 and at the beginning of 2016. With the payment of the February 2016 dividend, we will have grown our dividend by 5% as compared to the same month a year ago."

"In 2015, we completed $1.26 billion in acquisitions, which is our third most active year for acquisitions in the company's history. We primarily funded our investment activity by issuing $1.2 billion of common equity. Our balance sheet is well-positioned today with approximately 75% of our market capitalization represented by equity, the highest level in ten years. We also currently have $1.63 billion available on our $2 billion credit facility which offers plenty of financial flexibility as we continue to grow our company in 2016."

"Our portfolio occupancy at the end of 2015 was 98.4%, up from 98.3% last quarter. We were able to achieve this high level of occupancy despite managing our most active year ever for lease expiration activity. We re-leased 253 properties with expiring leases to existing or new tenants, at rent above our expiring rent."

Financial Results

Revenue
Revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased 6.5% to $263.7 million, as compared to $247.6 million for the same quarter in 2014. Revenue for 2015 increased 9.6% to $1.023 billion, as compared to $933.5 million for 2014.

Net Income Available to Common Stockholders
Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $76.2 million, as compared to $71.0 million for the same quarter in 2014. Net income per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 was $0.31, as compared to $0.32 for the same quarter in 2014. Net income available to common stockholders for the quarter ended December 31, 2014 was impacted by an unusually large gain on sales of real estate, which represented $0.11 per share.

Net income available to common stockholders for 2015 was $256.7 million, as compared to $227.6 million for 2014. Net income per share in 2015 was $1.09, as compared to $1.04 for 2014.

The calculation to determine net income for a real estate company includes impairments and/or gains on property sales. Impairments and/or gains on property sales vary from quarter to quarter. This variance can significantly impact net income and period to period comparisons.

Funds From Operations (FFO) Available to Common Stockholders
FFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased 23.8% to $177.9 million, as compared to $143.7 million for the same quarter in 2014. FFO per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased 10.9% to $0.71, as compared to $0.64 for the same quarter in 2014.

FFO for 2015 increased 15.9% to $652.4 million, as compared to $562.9 million for 2014. FFO per share in 2015 increased 7.4% to $2.77, as compared to $2.58 for 2014.

Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO) Available to Common Stockholders
AFFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased 16.9% to $170.0 million, as compared to $145.4 million for the same quarter in 2014. AFFO per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 increased 4.6% to $0.68, as compared to $0.65 for the same quarter in 2014.

AFFO for 2015 increased 15.2% to $647.0 million, as compared to $561.7 million for 2014. AFFO per share for 2015 increased 6.6% to $2.74, as compared to $2.57 for 2014.

The company considers FFO and AFFO to be appropriate supplemental measures of a Real Estate Investment Trust's (REIT's) operating performance. Realty Income defines FFO consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trust's (NAREIT's) definition, as net income available to common stockholders, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, plus impairments of real estate, reduced by gains on sales of investment properties and extraordinary items. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which the company believes are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company's ongoing operating performance. See the reconciliations of net income available to common stockholders to FFO and AFFO on pages six and seven. 

Dividend Increases
In December 2015, Realty Income announced the 73rd consecutive quarterly dividend increase, which is the 83rd increase in the amount of the dividend since the company's listing on the New York Stock Exchange in 1994. The annualized dividend amount as of December 31, 2015 was $2.292 per share. The amount of monthly dividends paid per share increased 3.6% to $2.271 in 2015 from $2.192 in 2014.

In January 2016, Realty Income increased the amount of the dividend by 5.0%, with the new dividend representing an annualized dividend of $2.382 per share, as compared to the February 2015 annualized dividend amount of $2.268 per share. The new monthly dividend amount of $0.1985 per share will be paid on February 16, 2016 to shareholders of record on February 1, 2016.

As of December 31, 2015, Realty Income's portfolio of freestanding, single-tenant properties consisted of 4,538 properties located in 49 states and Puerto Rico, leased to 240 commercial tenants doing business in 47 industries. The properties are leased under long-term, net leases with a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 10.0 years.

Portfolio Management Activities
The company's portfolio of commercial real estate, owned primarily under 10- to 20-year net leases, continues to perform well and provides dependable rental revenue supporting the payment of monthly dividends. As of December 31, 2015, portfolio occupancy was 98.4% with 71 properties available for lease out of a total of 4,538 properties in the portfolio, as compared to 98.4%, with 70 properties available for lease as of December 31, 2014. Economic occupancy, or occupancy as measured by rental revenue, was 99.2% as of December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

Since September 30, 2015, when the company reported 74 properties available for lease, the company had 44 lease expirations, re-leased 32 properties and sold 15 vacant properties. Of the 32 properties re-leased during the fourth quarter of 2015, 27 properties were re-leased to existing tenants, one was re-leased to a new tenant without vacancy, and four were re-leased to new tenants after a period of vacancy. The annual new rent on these re-leases was $4.71 million, as compared to the previous annual rent of $4.83 million on the same properties, representing a rent recapture rate of 97.5% on the properties re-leased for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Since December 31, 2014, 253 properties were re-leased to existing or new tenants with a rent recapture rate of 100.9% on the properties re-leased during 2015.

During the quarter ended December 31, 2015, same store rents on 3,636 properties under lease increased 1.3% to $200.3 million, as compared to $197.8 million for the same quarter in 2014.

These properties are 100% leased with a weighted average lease term of approximately 15.7 years and an initial average cash lease yield of 7.1%. The tenants occupying the new properties operate in 17 industries, and the property types consist of 89.1% retail and 10.9% industrial, based on rental revenue. Approximately 28% of the rental revenue generated from acquisitions during the fourth quarter of 2015 is from investment grade rated tenants.

2016 Earnings Guidance

We estimate FFO per share for 2016 of $2.82 to $2.89, an increase of 1.8% to 4.3% over 2015 FFO per share of $2.77. FFO per share for 2016 is based on a net income per share range of $1.14 to $1.21, plus estimated real estate depreciation of $1.76 per share, and reduced by potential estimated gains on sales of investment properties of $0.08 per share (in accordance with NAREIT's definition of FFO).

We estimate AFFO per share for 2016 of $2.85 to $2.90, an increase of 4.0% to 5.8% over 2015 AFFO per share of $2.74. AFFO further adjusts FFO for unique revenue and expense items, which are not as pertinent to the measurement of Realty Income's ongoing operating performance.

We define AFFO as FFO adjusted for unique revenue and expense items, which the company believes are not as pertinent to the measurement of the company's ongoing operating performance. Most companies in our industry use a similar measurement to AFFO, but they may use the term "CAD" (for Cash Available for Distribution) or "FAD" (for Funds Available for Distribution).
