10/26/2021

MILL VALLEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Four Corners Property Trust, Inc. (“FCPT” or the “Company”, NYSE: FCPT) today announced financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Management Comments

“We are very pleased with our investment pace in the quarter with over $107 million of acquired properties, and a strong pipeline heading into the fourth quarter,” said CEO Bill Lenehan. “We acquired net-lease properties with great brands and fundamentals. Consistent with the first half of the year, over half of the properties were in non-restaurant categories including the targeted verticals of medical retail and auto services. The portfolio continues to perform well with 99.8% collections in the third quarter, and the balance sheet benefits from low leverage and no near-term maturities.”

Rent Collection Update

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

(1)

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 and third quarters 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.

(2)

Assumes the issuance of common shares for OP units held by non-controlling interest.
