As of August 3, 2022, IIP owned 110 properties located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, representing a total of approximately 8.6 million rentable square feet (including approximately 2.2 million rentable square feet under development / redevelopment), with a weighted-average remaining lease term of approximately 16 years. As of August 3, 2022, IIP had invested approximately $2.1 billion across its portfolio (consisting of purchase price and construction funding and improvements reimbursed to tenants, but excluding transaction costs) and had committed an additional approximately $209.6 million to fund draws by certain tenants and sellers related to construction and improvements at IIP’s properties (assuming full funding of draws for these improvements, IIP’s total investment in its portfolio equates to approximately $274 per square foot). These statistics do not include an $18.5 million loan commitment from IIP to a developer for construction of a regulated cannabis cultivation and processing facility in California.

Capital Markets Activity

From April 1, 2022 through today, holders of an aggregate of approximately $3.1 million of IIP’s Exchangeable Senior Notes submitted their Exchangeable Senior Notes for exchange, and IIP issued a total of 47,059 shares of common stock to these holders in accordance with the terms of the indenture governing the Exchangeable Senior Notes. As of August 3, 2022, approximately $6.5 million aggregate principal amount of the Exchangeable Senior Notes remains outstanding.

On April 5, 2022, IIP completed an underwritten public offering of 1,578,948 shares of common stock, and on April 6, 2022, IIP completed the issuance of an additional 236,842 shares of common stock pursuant to the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares in the offering, resulting in aggregate net proceeds of approximately $330.9 million. IIP expects to use the net proceeds from this offering to invest in specialized industrial real estate assets that are used in the regulated cannabis industry and for general corporate purposes. As of August 3, 2022, 27,973,429 shares of IIP common stock are outstanding.

Financial Results

IIP generated total revenues of approximately $70.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to approximately $48.9 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of 44%. The increase was driven primarily by the acquisition and leasing of new properties, additional improvement allowances and construction funding at existing properties resulting in adjustments to base rent, and contractual rental escalations at certain properties.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022, IIP recorded net income attributable to common stockholders and net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share of approximately $39.9 million and $1.42, respectively; funds from operations (FFO) (diluted) and FFO per diluted share of approximately $55.2 million and $1.97, respectively; normalized FFO, which adds back to FFO acquisition-related expense, financing expenses and the loss on exchange of a portion of the Exchangeable Senior Notes during the three months ended June 30, 2022 (Normalized FFO), and Normalized FFO per diluted share of approximately $55.3 million and $1.97, respectively; and AFFO and AFFO per diluted share of approximately $60.1 million and $2.14, respectively.

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, IIP recorded net income attributable to common stockholders and net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share of approximately $74.6 million and $2.75, respectively; FFO (diluted) and FFO per diluted share of approximately $104.1 million and $3.83, respectively; Normalized FFO and Normalized FFO per diluted share of approximately $104.4 million and $3.84, respectively; and AFFO and AFFO per diluted share of approximately $113.9 million and $4.19, respectively.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, FFO (diluted), Normalized FFO, AFFO and FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO per diluted share include the dilutive impact of the assumed full exchange of the Exchangeable Senior Notes for shares of common stock.

IIP paid a quarterly dividend of $1.75 per common share on July 15, 2022 to stockholders of record as of June 30, 2022, equal to an annualized dividend of $7.00 per share. IIP’s AFFO payout ratio was 82% (calculated by dividing the quarterly dividend by IIP’s AFFO for the quarter).

FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies. A complete reconciliation containing adjustments from GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders to FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO and definitions of terms are included at the end of this release.

FFO and FFO per share are operating performance measures adopted by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (NAREIT). NAREIT defines FFO as the most commonly accepted and reported measure of a REIT’s operating performance equal to net income, computed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, depreciation, amortization and impairment related to real estate properties, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Management believes that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, management believes FFO and FFO per share to be supplemental measures of a REIT’s performance because they provide an understanding of the operating performance of IIP’s properties without giving effect to certain significant non-cash items, primarily depreciation expense. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions. IIP believes that by excluding the effect of depreciation, FFO and FFO per share can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods. IIP reports FFO and FFO per share because these measures are observed by management to also be the predominant measures used by the REIT industry and industry analysts to evaluate REITs and because FFO per share is consistently reported, discussed, and compared by research analysts in their notes and publications about REITs. For these reasons, management has deemed it appropriate to disclose and discuss FFO and FFO per share.

IIP computes Normalized FFO by adjusting FFO, as defined by NAREIT, to exclude certain GAAP income and expense amounts that management believes are infrequent and unusual in nature and/or not related to IIP’s core real estate operations. Exclusion of these items from similar FFO-type metrics is common within the equity REIT industry, and management believes that presentation of Normalized FFO and Normalized FFO per share provides investors with a metric to assist in their evaluation of IIP’s operating performance across multiple periods and in comparison to the operating performance of other companies, because it removes the effect of unusual items that are not expected to impact IIP’s operating performance on an ongoing basis. Normalized FFO is used by management in evaluating the performance of its core business operations. Items included in calculating FFO that may be excluded in calculating Normalized FFO include certain transaction-related gains, losses, income or expense or other non-core amounts as they occur.

Management believes that AFFO and AFFO per share are also appropriate supplemental measures of a REIT’s operating performance. IIP calculates AFFO by adjusting Normalized FFO for certain non-cash items.

For the periods presented, FFO (diluted), Normalized FFO, AFFO and FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO per diluted share include the dilutive impact of the assumed full exchange of the Exchangeable Senior Notes for shares of common stock.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, as the performance thresholds for vesting of the performance share units were not met as measured as of the respective dates, they were excluded from the calculation of weighted average common shares outstanding – diluted for all periods presented.

IIP’s computation of FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such REITs. Further, FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flow available for management’s discretionary use. FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of IIP’s financial performance or to cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of IIP’s liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund IIP’s cash needs, including IIP’s ability to pay dividends or make distributions. FFO, Normalized FFO and AFFO should be considered only as supplements to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as measures of IIP’s operations.
