– Collected 100.0% of Fourth Quarter 2020 Contractual Rents as Contemplated in Original Leases –

– Completed $409 Million of Acquisitions in 2020 –

NETSTREIT (NYSE: NTST) (the "Company"), today announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

"2020 was a very important year for NETSTREIT, and we are extremely proud of all of our accomplishments. Our portfolio performed well throughout a period of elevated economic stress and we credit our sector-leading collections to our portfolio quality and the defensive characteristics that define our strategy. We also completed our Initial Public Offering, which enhances our access to capital as we look to continue to grow. Further, we continued to improve our already strong portfolio composition through thoughtful acquisitions and dispositions which resulted in a larger, more diversified and higher quality asset base, which is another example of our ability to execute our strategy to drive cash flow growth and generate a strong, safe yield over time," said Mark Manheimer, Chief Executive Officer of NETSTREIT. "As we look ahead to 2021, we are focused on continuing to capitalize on our significant growth opportunity within the net lease sector, utilizing our dedicated platform and high-quality balance sheet."

FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2020 HIGHLIGHTS

  • Reported net income per diluted share of $0.15, Core Funds from Operations ("Core FFO") per diluted share of $0.181 and AFFO per diluted share of $0.201 (see non-GAAP financial measures reconciliation) for the fourth quarter of 2020

  • Reported net income per diluted share of $0.01, Core FFO per diluted share of $0.652 and AFFO per diluted share of $0.692 (see non-GAAP financial measures reconciliation) for the full year 2020

  • Prior to giving any consideration to deferral or abatement arrangements granted as a result of COVID, the Company collected 100.0% of fourth quarter contractual rent. For the full year 2020, the Company collected 96.9% of contractual rent

PORTFOLIO UPDATE

As of December 31, 2020, the NETSTREIT portfolio was comprised of 203 properties, contributing $41.8 million of annualized base rent3, with a weighted-average remaining lease term of 10.5 years, of which 70.0% were leased to investment grade rated tenants and 8.0% were leased to tenants with investment grade profiles (unrated tenants with more than $1.0 billion in annual sales and a debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of less than 2.0x). The portfolio was 100.0% occupied as of December 31, 2020.

INVESTMENT ACTIVITY

During the quarter ended December 31, 2020, the Company invested approximately $81.2 million in 26 properties at an initial cash capitalization rate of 6.8%. Acquisitions completed during the quarter had a weighted-average remaining lease term of 8.8 years, and 68.7% are occupied by investment grade rated tenants.

Over the same period, the Company sold 12 properties for total proceeds of $37.4 million. The cash capitalization rate on the 12 properties was 6.6%.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

FFO, Core FFO and AFFO

FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure defined by NAREIT as net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding real estate-related expenses including, but not limited to, gains (losses) from sales, impairment adjustments, and depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Our calculation of FFO is consistent with FFO as defined by NAREIT.

Core FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as FFO adjusted for gains from forfeited earnest money deposits and non-recurring public company costs. We believe the presentation of Core FFO provides investors with a metric to assist in their evaluation of our operating performance across multiple periods because it removes the effect of unusual and non-recurring items that are not expected to impact our operating performance on an ongoing basis.

AFFO is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as Core FFO adjusted for GAAP net income related to non-cash revenues and expenses, such as straight-line rent, amortization of above- and below-market lease-related intangibles, non-cash compensation expense, and amortization of deferred financing costs.

Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. In fact, real estate values historically have risen or fallen with market conditions. FFO is intended to be a standard supplemental measure of operating performance that excludes historical cost depreciation and valuation adjustments from net income. We consider FFO to be useful in evaluating potential property acquisitions and measuring operating performance. We further consider Core FFO and AFFO to be useful in determining funds available for payment of distributions. FFO, Core FFO and AFFO do not represent net income or cash flows from operations as defined by GAAP. You should not consider FFO, Core FFO and AFFO to be alternatives to net income as a reliable measure of our operating performance; nor should you consider FFO, Core FFO and AFFO to be alternatives to cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities (as defined by GAAP) as measures of liquidity.

FFO, Core FFO and AFFO do not measure whether cash flow is sufficient to fund all of our cash needs, including principal amortization, capital improvements and distributions to stockholders. FFO, Core FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities as defined by GAAP. Further, FFO, Core FFO and AFFO as disclosed by other REITs might not be comparable to our calculations of FFO, Core FFO and AFFO.

EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre

We compute EBITDA as earnings before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. In 2017, NAREIT issued a white paper recommending that companies that report EBITDA also report EBITDAre. We compute EBITDAre in accordance with the definition adopted by NAREIT. NAREIT defines EBITDAre as EBITDA (as defined above) excluding gains (or losses) from the sales of depreciable property and real estate impairment losses.

Adjusted EBITDAre is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as EBITDAre further adjusted to exclude straight-line rent, gains from forfeited earnest money deposits, non-recurring public company costs, representing consulting fees that we have incurred in preparing to become a public company and non-cash compensation expense.

We present EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre as they are measures commonly used in our industry. We believe that these measures are useful to investors and analysts because they provide supplemental information concerning our operating performance, exclusive of certain non-cash items and other costs. We use EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre as measures of our operating performance and not as measures of liquidity.

EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre do not include all items of revenue and expense included in net income, they do not represent cash generated from operating activities and they are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or cash flows from operations as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures. Additionally, our computation of EBITDA, EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre may differ from the methodology for calculating these metrics used by other equity REITs and, therefore, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other equity REITs.

NOI and Cash NOI

NOI and Cash NOI are non-GAAP financial measures which we use to assess our operating results. We compute NOI as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding general and administrative expenses, interest expense (or income), depreciation and amortization, gains (or losses) on sales of depreciable property, gain from forfeited earnest money deposits and real estate impairment losses. We further adjust NOI for non-cash revenue components of straight-line rent and amortization of lease intangibles to derive Cash NOI. We believe NOI and Cash NOI provide useful and relevant information because they reflect only those income and expense items that are incurred at the property level and present such items on an unlevered basis.

NOI and Cash NOI are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and our NOI and Cash NOI may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. You should not consider our NOI and Cash NOI as alternatives to net income or cash flows from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP.
