Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017; Revised Earnings Guidance for the Year 2017; Announces Impairment Charges for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2017

Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. For the quarter, the company's total revenues were $165,422,000 compared to $168,357,000 a year ago. Loss before other expense and income tax expense was $3,193,000 compared to profit of $18,376,000 a year ago. Loss before income tax expense was $3,223,000 compared to profit of $13,035,000 a year ago. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $12,829,000 compared to $23,100,000 a year ago. Net income per share attributable to common stockholders diluted was $0.03 compared to $0.05 a year ago. FFO was $95,845,000 compared to $90,463,000 a year ago. AFFO was $98,019,000 compared to $97,851,000 a year ago. FFO per share of common stock - diluted was $0.20 compared to $0.20 a year ago. AFFO per share of common stock- diluted was $0.20 compared to $0.22 a year ago. The company is updating its 2017 AFFO per share guidance from that presented in November of 2016. The change is a result of two primary factors: first, increased credit losses, and second, the Company withdrawing its prior $250 million net acquisition target. The Company believes that given the high number of retail and consumer industry related bankruptcies relative to recent years, and the fact that the Company's largest tenant is a general merchandise retailer, it is not prudent to increase leverage in order to meet its previous net acquisition target. Based on these expectations, the Company currently anticipates 2017 AFFO per share to range from $0.80 to $0.84 per share. AFFO per share is sensitive to the timing and amount of real estate and capital markets activities during the year, as well as to the spread achieved between the lease rates on new acquisitions and the interest rates on borrowings used to finance those acquisitions. The Company does not provide a reconciliation for its guidance range of AFFO per diluted share to net income available to common stockholders per diluted share, the most directly comparable forward looking GAAP financial measure, due to the inherent variability in timing and/or amount of various items that could impact net income available to common stockholders per diluted share, including, for example, gains on debt extinguishment, impairments and other items that are outside the control of the Company. The company also announced impairment charges for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017. For the quarter, the company's portfolio impairments was $34,376,000 compared to $12,938,000 a year ago.
