MILL VALLEY, Calif., August 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Four Corners Property Trust, Inc. ("FCPT" or the "Company") (NYSE: FCPT) today announced financial results for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Management Comments

"Our portfolio continued to perform well in the second quarter with strong collections and many of our tenants experiencing sales in excess of 2019 pre-pandemic levels," said CEO Bill Lenehan. "Our acquisition volume has increased as the year has progressed, and we expect that momentum to continue in the second half of the year. We maintained our discipline of acquiring strong net-lease properties with creditworthy tenants and great brands, and have enhanced the diversity of the FCPT portfolio with the acquisition of a number of non-restaurant properties in the quarter." Mr. Lenehan added, "FCPT further strengthened its balance sheet in June by extending our $650 million credit facility for four additional years at a lower cost with a high-quality bank group."

Rent Collection Update

As of June 30, 2021, the Company has received rent payments representing 99.8% of its portfolio contractual base rent for the quarter ending June 30, 2021.

Amount represents base rent that the Company believed it would abate as a result of lease amendments. GAAP requires revenue recognition for the abated rent in the current period. For the second quarter of 2020, this amount was recorded in rental revenue and accounts receivable. When the related amendments were signed, the accounts receivable balance equal to the abated rental payment was recognized as a lease incentive and amortized as a reduction to rental revenue over the future lease term.
