Financial Results

For the three months ended December 31, 2022, IIP generated total revenues of approximately $70.5 million, compared to approximately $58.9 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of 20%. The increase was driven primarily by the acquisition and leasing of new properties, additional real estate infrastructure allowances provided to tenants at certain properties that resulted in adjustments to base rent, and contractual rental escalations at certain properties, partially offset by the previously disclosed defaults of tenants for which IIP did not receive or record revenue. During the three months ended December 31, 2022, IIP collected 94% of contractual rents and did not collect rents totaling approximately $4.7 million (including approximately $4.3 million of contractual base rents and property management fees and approximately $384,000 for tenant reimbursements for property insurance premiums and property taxes) from four tenants: Kings Garden (California), affiliates of Medical Investor Holdings, LLC (Vertical) (California), Green Peak (Michigan) and an affiliate of Parallel (Pennsylvania). Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 included approximately $3.0 million and $1.9 million, respectively, of tenant reimbursements for property insurance premiums and property taxes.

For the year ended December 31, 2022, IIP generated total revenues of approximately $276.4 million, compared to approximately $204.6 million for 2021, an increase of 35%. The increase was driven primarily by the acquisition and leasing of new properties, additional real estate infrastructure allowances provided to tenants at certain properties that resulted in adjustments to base rent, and contractual rental escalations at certain properties, partially offset by the previously disclosed defaults of tenants for which IIP did not receive or record revenue. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, IIP collected 97% of contractual rents and did not collect rents totaling $8.6 million (including $8.2 million of contractual base rents and property management fees and $440,000 for tenant reimbursements for property insurance premiums and property taxes) from four tenants: Kings Garden (California), Vertical (California), Green Peak (Michigan) and an affiliate of Parallel (Pennsylvania). Total revenues for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2021 included approximately $10.1 million and $4.4 million, respectively, of tenant reimbursements for property insurance premiums and property taxes.

For the three months ended December 31, 2022, IIP recorded net income attributable to common stockholders and net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share of approximately $41.2 million and $1.46, respectively; funds from operations (FFO) (diluted) and FFO per diluted share of approximately $53.9 million and $1.92, respectively; normalized FFO, which adds back to FFO acquisition-related expense, litigation-related expense and financing expense during the three months ended December 31, 2022 (Normalized FFO), and Normalized FFO per diluted share of approximately $55.0 million and $1.95, respectively; and AFFO and AFFO per diluted share of approximately $59.6 million and $2.12, respectively.

For all 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.

IIP paid a quarterly dividend of $1.80 per common share on January 13, 2023 to stockholders of record as of December 30, 2022, equal to an annualized dividend of $7.20per share. IIP’s AFFO payout ratio for the three months ended December 31, 2022 was 85% (calculated by dividing the common stock dividend declared per share by IIP’s AFFO per common share – diluted for the quarter). The common stock dividends declared for the twelve months ended December 31, 2022, of $7.10 per common share represent an increase of $1.38, or 24%, over dividends declared for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

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 all 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 twelve months ended December 31, 2022, the performance share units (“PSUs”) granted to certain employees were not included in dilutive securities as the performance thresholds for vesting of the PSUs were not met as measured as of December 31, 2022. For the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2021, 81,414 shares issuable upon vesting of PSUs granted to certain employees in January 2021 were dilutive, as the performance thresholds for vesting of these PSUs were met as measured as of December 31, 2021.

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.
