SPIRIT REALTY CAPITAL, INC.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
June 30, 2014
(Unaudited)



Note 1. Organization
Company Organization and Operations
Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (the "Company") is a Maryland corporation and operates as a self-administered and self-managed REIT that seeks to generate and deliver sustainable and attractive returns for stockholders by investing primarily in and managing a portfolio of single-tenant, operationally essential real estate throughout the United States that is generally leased on a long-term, triple-net basis primarily to tenants engaged in retail, service and distribution industries. Single tenant, operationally essential real estate generally refers to free-standing, commercial real estate facilities where tenants conduct activities that are essential to the generation of their sales and profits.
On July 17, 2013, the Company merged with and into Cole Credit Property Trust II, Inc. ("Cole II"), a Maryland Corporation, pursuant to the Merger Agreement ("Merger").
The Company’s operations are carried out through its operating partnership, Spirit Realty, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”). Spirit General OP Holdings, LLC ("OP Holdings"), one of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries, is the sole general partner and owns 1.0% of the Operating Partnership. The Company and a wholly-owned subsidiary are the sole limited partner and own the remaining 99.0% of the Operating Partnership.

As of June 30, 2014, our undepreciated gross investment in real estate and loans totaled approximately $7.55 billion, representing investments in 2,369 properties, including properties securing our mortgage loans. Of this amount, 98.5% consisted of our gross investment in real estate, representing ownership of 2,224 properties, and the remaining 1.5% consisted of commercial mortgage loans receivable secured by the remaining 145 properties or other related assets.
Recent Developments

Common Stock and Convertible Notes Offerings

On May 20, 2014, the Company completed a secondary public offering of 26,450,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the "Shares"), par value $0.01 per share, pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated May 14, 2014 (the "Common Stock Offering"). The Shares sold in the offering include 3,450,000 shares of common stock sold to the underwriters pursuant to their 30-day option to purchase additional Shares of common stock to cover over-allotments, which was exercised in full on May 16, 2014.

Concurrent with the Common Stock Offering, on May 20, 2014, the Company completed public offerings of $402.5 million aggregate principal amount of 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”) and $345.0 million aggregate principal amount 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021 (the “2021 Notes” and, together with the 2019 Notes, the “Convertible Notes”), pursuant to an underwriting agreement dated May 14, 2014 ( the "Convertible Notes Offering"). The Convertible Notes sold in the offering include $52.5 million of the 2019 Notes and $45.0 million of the 2021 Notes sold to the underwriters pursuant to their 30-day option to purchase additional notes to cover over-allotments, which was exercised in full on May 16, 2014.

The resulting net proceeds to the Company from the Common Stock Offering and Convertible Notes Offering were approximately $271.2 million and $726.2 million, respectively, after deducting the underwriting discount and other transaction costs. Net proceeds raised from the concurrent public offerings were partially used to extinguish senior mortgage notes payable with an aggregate principal balance of $509.8 million, redeem $18.0 million of net-lease mortgage notes which were not tendered in connection with the Exchange Offer, repay all amounts drawn against the Credit Facility and to fund future acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.

Spirit Master Funding Notes Exchange Offer

On May 20, 2014 (the “Settlement Date”), the Company completed its offer to exchange (the "Exchange Offer") any and all of certain net-lease mortgage notes, (the “Old Notes”) issued by one or more indirectly-owned special purpose, bankruptcy remote subsidiaries of the Company, for new notes under an amended trust indenture and property management agreement (the “New Notes”). The Exchange Offer was subject to a minimum tender condition of at least 98% of the outstanding principal of Old Notes. Of the $912.4 million of Old Notes outstanding on the Settlement Date, $894.4 million or 98% elected to exchange their Old Notes for New Notes and $18.0 million of the Old Notes not tendered were redeemed.

The New Notes will maintain generally similiar structural terms as the Old notes. The New Notes bear interest at the same rate, amortize at a slower rate and have a 17 year extension of the legal final payment date (although the anticipated repayment date remains the same). The New Notes are not insured by third party financial guaranty insurance and the associated insurance premium was eliminated. The New Notes are secured by substantially all of the assets owned by these entities.

Debt Defeasance
On June 5, 2014, two indirectly owned subsidiaries of the Company defeased the loans outstanding under a master loan agreement. The original amount under the loan agreement was $545.7 million bearing interest at a fixed rate of 6.59% with a maturity date of June 5, 2016. On the defeasance date, the principal balance outstanding under the loan agreement was approximately $488.7 million. Prior to the defeasance date, the obligations under the loan agreement had been secured by 112 properties and rents therefrom leased to a significant tenant, which had an aggregate gross book value of approximately $917.7 million as of June 30, 2014. The Company funded the defeasance using a portion of the proceeds from the Convertible Notes Offering.
At the Market Common Stock Offering Program
On April 15, 2014, in connection with the commencement of a continuous equity offering, the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") a prospectus supplement under which the Company may sell up to an aggregate of $350.0 million of shares from time to time in “at the market” offerings (the “ATM Program”). The Company may sell the shares in amounts and at times to be determined by the Company from time to time, but has no obligation to sell any of the shares in the ATM Program. The ATM Program will operate pursuant to an equity distribution agreement entered into by the Company and the Operating Partnership with a number of sales agents for the offer and sale of the shares. During the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the company sold 1,574,320 shares under the program, raising proceeds of approximately $16.6 million, net of $0.3 million in sales agent compensation.

Acquisitions and dispositions

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company purchased 190 properties, representing an aggregate gross investment in real estate properties of $365.5 million, which includes $1.8 million in revenue producing follow on investments in existing properties. During the same period, the Company sold seven properties for $15.3 million in gross sales proceeds. See Note 3 for additional discussion of the Company's investments.

Certain information and note disclosures, normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”), have been condensed or omitted from these statements pursuant to SEC rules and regulations and, accordingly, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements as filed with the SEC in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.
The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The Company has formed numerous special purpose entities to acquire and hold real estate subject to mortgage notes payable (see Note 5). As a result, the vast majority of the Company’s consolidated assets are held in these wholly owned special purpose entities, and are subject to debt. Each special purpose entity is a separate legal entity, and is the sole owner of its assets and responsible for its liabilities. The assets of these special purpose entities are not available to pay, or otherwise satisfy obligations to, the creditors of any owner or affiliate of the special purpose entity. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, assets totaling $6.3 billion and $6.1 billion, respectively, were held, and liabilities totaling $3.3 billion and $3.8 billion, respectively, were owed by these special purpose entities and are included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Although management believes its estimates are reasonable, actual results could differ from those estimates.
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made to prior period balances to conform to the current period presentation.
Segment Reporting
Accounting Standards Codification Topic (“ASC”) 280, Segment Reporting, established standards for the manner in which public enterprises report information about operating segments. The Company views its operations as one segment, which consists of net leasing operations. The Company has no other reportable segments.
Real Estate Investments
Purchase Accounting and Acquisition of Real Estate - When acquiring a property for investment purposes, the Company allocates the purchase price (including acquisition and closing costs) to land, building, improvements, and equipment based on their relative fair values. For properties acquired with in-place leases, the Company allocates the purchase price of real estate to the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities acquired based on their estimated fair values and acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. In making estimates of fair values for this purpose, the Company uses a number of sources, including independent appraisals and information obtained about each property as a result of its pre-acquisition due diligence and its marketing and leasing activities.
Lease Intangibles - Lease intangibles, if any, acquired in conjunction with the purchase of real estate represent the value of in-place leases and above- or below-market leases. For real estate acquired subject to existing lease agreements, in-place lease intangibles are valued based on the Company’s estimates of costs related to tenant acquisition and the carrying costs that would be incurred during the time it would take to locate a tenant if the property

were vacant, considering current market conditions and costs to execute similar leases at the time of the acquisition, and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining initial term of the related lease. Above- and below-market lease intangibles are recorded based on the present value of the difference between the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the leases at the time of acquisition of the real estate and the Company’s estimate of current market lease rates for the property, measured over a period equal to the remaining initial term of the lease. Capitalized above-market lease intangibles are amortized over the remaining initial terms of the respective leases as a decrease to rental revenue. Below-market lease intangibles are amortized as an increase in rental revenue over the remaining initial terms of the respective leases plus any fixed-rate renewal periods on those leases. Should a lease terminate early, the unamortized portion of any related lease intangible is immediately recognized in the Company’s condensed consolidated statements of operations.
Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
The Company reviews its rent receivables for collectability on a regular basis, taking into consideration changes in factors such as the tenant’s payment history, the financial condition of the tenant, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant operates, and economic conditions in the area where the property is located. In the event that the collectability of a receivable with respect to any tenant is in doubt, a provision for uncollectible amounts will be established or a direct write-off of the specific rent receivable will be made. The Company provided for reserves for uncollectible amounts totaling $5.4 million and $4.6 million at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, against accounts receivable balances of $18.8 million and $14.3 million, respectively; receivables are recorded within deferred costs and other assets, net in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. For deferred rental revenues related to the straight-line method of reporting rental revenue, the Company performs a periodic review of receivable balances and established a provision for losses of $10.8 million and $9.6 million at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, against deferred rental revenue receivables of $42.0 million and $35.3 million, respectively. The Company's periodic review includes management’s estimates of amounts that will not be realized and an assessment of the risks inherent in the portfolio, giving consideration to historical experience and industry default rates for long-term receivables.
Loans Receivable
Impairment and Allowance for Loan Losses - The Company periodically evaluates the collectability of its loans receivable, including accrued interest, by analyzing the underlying property-level economics and trends, collateral value and quality, and other relevant factors in determining the adequacy of its allowance for loan losses. A loan is determined to be impaired when, in management’s judgment based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Specific allowances for loan losses are provided for impaired loans on an individual loan basis in the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value of the underlying collateral less disposition costs. Delinquent loans receivable are written off against the allowance when all possible means of collection have been exhausted. There was no allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2014 or December 31, 2013.
A loan is placed on nonaccrual status when the loan has become 60 days past due, or earlier if management determines that full recovery of the contractually specified payments of principal and interest is doubtful. While on nonaccrual status, interest income is recognized only when received. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, there were no mortgages or notes on nonaccrual status.

(2) Deposits held by lenders that are reserved to fund tenant improvements/repairs on collateral properties or when leasing commissions are incurred to secure a new tenant.
(3) Includes net sales proceeds from property dispositions held as collateral that can be released upon qualified re-investment.
(4) Funds held in lender controlled accounts generally used to meet future debt service or certain property cost requirements.
(5) Funds held in lender controlled accounts released within the following month after debt service requirements are met.

A significant amount of these reserves were established in connection with obtaining lender consents relating to our initial public offering during 2012 and Merger during 2013.
Income Taxes
The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. As a REIT, the Company generally will not be subject to federal income tax provided it continues to satisfy certain tests concerning the Company’s sources of income, the nature of its assets, the amounts distributed to its stockholders, and the ownership of Company stock. Management believes the Company has qualified and will continue to qualify as a REIT and therefore, no provision has been made for federal income taxes in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements. Even if the Company qualifies for taxation as a REIT, it may be subject to state and local income and franchise taxes, and to federal income tax and excise tax on its undistributed income.
Franchise taxes are included in general and administrative expenses on the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. Taxable income from non-REIT activities managed through the Company’s taxable REIT subsidiary is subject to federal, state, and local taxes, which are not material.
New Accounting Pronouncements
From time to time, new accounting pronouncements are issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) or the SEC that are adopted by the Company as of the specified effective date. Unless otherwise discussed, these new accounting pronouncements entail technical corrections to existing guidance or affect guidance related to specialized industries or entities and therefore will have minimal, if any, impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations upon adoption.

In April 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360), Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity, which amends the requirements for reporting discontinued operations. Under ASU 2014-08, a disposal of a component of an entity or a group of components of an entity is required to be reported in discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results when the component or group of components meets the criteria to be classified as held for sale or when the component or group of components is disposed of by sale or other than by sale. In addition,

12


SPIRIT REALTY CAPITAL, INC.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - (continued)
June 30, 2014
(Unaudited)

this ASU requires additional disclosures about both discontinued operations and the disposal of an individually significant component of an entity that does not qualify for discontinued operations presentation in the financial statements. The Company has early adopted the provisions of ASU 2014-08 beginning with the period ended March 31, 2014, and has applied the provisions prospectively.

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers: Topic 606. This new guidance establishes a principles-based approach for accounting for revenue from contracts with customers. Lease contracts covered by Topic 840, Leases, are excluded from the scope of this new guidance. This new standard is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016 and early adoption is not permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its financial statements.
Note 3. Investments
Real Estate Investments
At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company’s gross investment in real estate properties and loans, including real estate assets held for sale, totaled approximately $7.55 billion and $7.24 billion, respectively. These investments are comprised of 2,369 and 2,186, respectively, owned or financed properties that are geographically dispersed throughout 49 states. Only one state, Texas, with a 13.0% investment, accounted for more than 10% of the total dollar amount of the Company’s investment portfolio. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, the Company’s gross investment portfolio was comprised of 2,224 and 2,041 owned properties. The Company also held 145 properties securing mortgage loans receivable with aggregate carrying amounts of $112.9 million and $117.3 million as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively. Other unsecured loans receivable with aggregate carrying amounts of $0.4 million were also held as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013.
During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company had the following gross real estate and loan activity:

(2) The total accumulated depreciation and amortization associated with dispositions of real estate was $2.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

The properties that the Company owns are leased to tenants under long-term operating leases that typically include one or more renewal options. The leases are generally triple-net, which provides that the lessee is responsible for the payment of all property operating expenses, including property taxes, maintenance and repairs, and insurance costs; therefore, the Company is generally not responsible for repairs or other capital expenditures related to its properties, unless the property is not subject to a lease agreement. At June 30, 2014, 29 of the Company’s properties were vacant, not subject to a lease and in the Company’s possession; three of these properties were held for sale. At December 31,

In addition, the future minimum rentals do not include any contingent rentals based on a percentage of the lessees' gross sales or lease escalations based on future changes in the consumer price index ("CPI").
Certain of the Company’s leases contain tenant purchase options. Most of these options are at or above fair market value at the time the option is exercisable, and none of these purchase options represent bargain purchase options under GAAP.

Revolving Credit Facilities
$400 million Credit Facility - On July 17, 2013, the Operating Partnership and various affiliates thereof, entered into a three-year credit agreement ("Credit Facility") with various lenders and terminated the $100.0 million secured revolving credit facility. The Operating Partnership may obtain loans and/or extensions of credit in an aggregate amount not exceeding $400.0 million. The initial term expires on July 17, 2016 and may be extended for an additional 12 months subject to the satisfaction of specified requirements. The Credit Facility bears interest, at the Operating Partnership’s option, of either (i) the “Base Rate” (as defined in the Credit Agreement) plus 1.00% to 2.00%; or (ii) LIBOR plus 2.00% to 3.00%, depending on the Operating Partnership’s leverage ratio. The Operating Partnership is also required to pay a fee on the unused portion of the Credit Facility at a rate of either 0.25% or 0.35% per annum, based on percentage thresholds for the average daily unused balance during a fiscal quarter, which amounted to $0.3 million and $0.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively.
As a result of entering into the Credit Facility, the Company incurred origination costs of $4.5 million. These costs are being amortized to interest expense, on a straight-line basis, over the remaining initial term of the Credit Facility. At June 30, 2014, $3.1 million of the $4.5 million is included in deferred costs and other assets, net on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. The effective interest rate on outstanding borrowings under the Credit Facility, which includes cash interest, non-cash amortization of deferred financing costs, and non-utilization fees, was 5.49% for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The interest rate, excluding the impact of non-cash amortization of deferred financing costs and non-utilization fee of the Credit Facility, was 2.78% for the three months ended June 30, 2014. As of June 30, 2014, there were no amounts outstanding on the Credit Facility.
The Company guarantees the Operating Partnership's obligations under the Credit Facility and, to the extent not prohibited by law, all of its assets and the Operating Partnership's assets, other than interests in subsidiaries that are contractually prohibited from being pledged, are pledged as collateral for obligations under the Credit Facility.
The ability to borrow under the Credit Facility is subject to the Operating Partnerships' ongoing compliance with a number of customary financial covenants. As of June 30, 2014, the Operating Partnership was in compliance with these financial covenants.
Line of Credit - As of June 30, 2014, a special purpose entity owned by the Company had access to a $40.0 million secured revolving credit facility (“Line of Credit”). The initial term of the Line of Credit expires in March 2016, and each advance under the Line of Credit has a 24-month term. The interest rate is determined on the date of each advance and is the greater of (i) the stated prime rate plus 0.5% or (ii) the floor rate equal to 4.0%. The interest rate with respect to each advance resets on the annual anniversary date of each advance, and is subject to the same terms as above. As of June 30, 2014, $15.5 million was outstanding on the Line of Credit under three separate advances, secured by 3 properties, at a weighted average stated rate of 4.0% and an effective interest rate for the three months ended June 30, 2014 of 4.22%. Each advance under the Line of Credit is secured only by its specified asset. The ability to borrow under the Line of Credit is subject to the Company's and special purposes entity's ongoing compliance with a number of customary financial covenants. As of June 30, 2014, the Company and special purpose entity were in compliance with these financial covenants.

Master Trust Notes

On May 20, 2014, the Company completed its Exchange Offer for the outstanding principal balance of certain net-lease mortgage notes issued by indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries Spirit Master Funding, LLC, Spirit Master Funding II, LLC and Spirit Master Funding III, LLC under the Company's Spirit Master Funding program. Of the $912.4 million of Old Notes outstanding as of the Settlement Date, $894.4 million elected to exchange their Old Notes for New Notes. Approximately $18.0 million of outstanding principal balance immediately prior to the Settlement Date were redeemed by the Company due to non-tender. The terms of the New Notes remain generally similar to the Old Notes including the interest rate and anticipated final repayment dates, however, the New Notes generally amortize more slowly than the Old Notes and have a legal final payment date that is 17 years later than the Old Notes. The New Notes are not insured by third party financial guaranty insurance and the associated insurance premium was eliminated. The revisions to the Spirit Master Funding Program in connection with the issuance of the New Notes, also generally provide the Company more administrative flexibility as property manager and special servicer.

In December 2013, Spirit Master Funding VII, LLC ("SMF VII") issued new investment grade rated $330 million net-lease mortgage notes under a new securitization platform. The issue was comprised of $125.0 million of 3.89% Series 2013-1 Class A interest only, net-lease mortgage notes expected to be repaid in December 2018 and $205.0 million of 5.27% Series 2013-2 Class A amortizing net-lease mortgage notes expected to be repaid in December 2023. The notes are secured by the assets of SMF VII and are non-recourse. The Company used the proceeds of the issue to replace shorter-term debt, fund acquisitions and for general corporate purposes. As of June 30, 2014, the Series 2013-1 and Series 2013-2 notes have outstanding balances of $125.0 million and $203.0 million, respectively, and are secured by 318 properties, including 79 properties securing mortgage loans.
CMBS
The Company has 229 fixed and 26 variable rate CMBS loans that are secured by mortgages on certain of the leased properties and related assets. The stated interest rates as of June 30, 2014 for the fixed rate notes ranged from 3.90% to 8.39% with a weighted average stated rate of 5.68%. The variable rate notes ranged from 2.65% to 3.56% with a weighted average stated rate of 3.28%. As of June 30, 2014, the fixed and variable rate loans have balances outstanding of $1.9 billion and $110.9 million, respectively, and are secured by 736 and 123 properties, respectively.
Convertible Senior Notes
On May 20, 2014, the Company completed public offerings of $402.5 million aggregate principal amount of 2.875% Convertible Notes due in 2019 and $345.0 million aggregate principal amount of 3.75% Convertible Notes due in 2021. Interest on the Notes is payable semiannually in arrears on May 15 and November 15 of each year, beginning on November 15, 2014. The 2019 Notes will mature on May 15, 2019 and the 2021 Notes will mature on May 15, 2021. The Company loaned the net proceeds from the Convertible Notes Offering to the Operating Partnership in exchange for promissory notes with substantially the same terms as the Notes.
The Convertible Notes are convertible only during certain periods and, subject to certain circumstances, into cash, shares of Spirit Realty Capital's common stock, or a combination thereof. The initial conversion rate applicable to each series is 76.3636 per $1,000 principal note (equivalent to an initial conversion price of $13.10 per share of common stock, representing a 22.5% premium above the public offering price). Earlier conversion may be triggered if shares of Spirit Realty Capital common stock trade higher than the established thresholds or certain corporate events as

defined occur.
In connection with the issuance of the Convertible Notes, the Company recorded a discount of $56.7 million, which represents the estimated value of the embedded conversion option feature for each of the Convertible Notes. The discount is shown net against the aggregate gross value of the Convertible Notes on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets within mortgages and notes payable, net. The equity component of the conversion feature is recorded in additional paid-in-capital, net of financing costs. The discount will be amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over a period of approximately 5 years for the 2019 Notes and 7 years for the 2021 Notes. As of June 30, 2014, the unamortized discount was $55.8 million. The Company also incurred $19.6 million in deferred financing costs in connection with the Convertible Notes Offering. This amount has been allocated on a pro-rata basis to each of the Convertible Notes and is being amortized to interest expense over the term of each note.
Debt Extinguishment

Net proceeds raised from the concurrent public offerings were partially used to retire senior mortgage notes payable with an aggregate principal balance of $509.8 million, redeem $18.0 million of net-lease mortgage notes which were not tendered in connection with the Exchange Offer, and repay all amounts drawn against the Credit Facility. The Company defeased approximately $488.7 million aggregate principal amount of senior mortgage indebtedness included in the total above. The defeased notes had contractual interest rates of 6.59% and upcoming maturities in 2016. As a result of these transactions, the Company recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of approximately $64.7 million.

Debt (premium)/discount net is amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over the terms of the related notes. The financing costs related to the establishment of debt are deferred and amortized to interest expense using the effective interest method over the term of the related debt instrument. Unamortized financing costs totaled $41.8 million and $23.8 million at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, and are included in deferred costs and other assets, net on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
Note 6. Derivative and Hedging Activities
The Company uses interest rate derivative contracts to manage its exposure to changes in interest rates on its variable rate debt. These derivatives are considered cash flow hedges and are recorded on a gross basis at fair value and included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Assessments of hedge effectiveness are performed quarterly using regression analysis and the measurement of hedge ineffectiveness is based on the hypothetical derivative method. The effective portion of changes in fair value are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss (“AOCL”) and subsequently reclassified to earnings when the hedged transactions affect earnings. The ineffective portion is recorded immediately in earnings in general and administrative expenses.

Note 8. Commitments and Contingencies
The Company is periodically subject to claims or litigation in the ordinary course of business, including claims generated from business conducted by tenants on real estate owned by the Company. In these instances, the Company is typically indemnified by the tenant against any losses that might be suffered, and the Company and/or the tenant are insured against such claims.
As of June 30, 2014, there were no outstanding claims against the Company that are expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
As of June 30, 2014, the Company had commitments totaling $31.3 million, of which $28.2 million relates to future acquisitions and the remainder to fund improvements on properties the Company currently owns.

The Company estimates future costs for known environmental remediation requirements when it is probable that the Company has incurred a liability and the related costs can be reasonably estimated. The Company considers various factors when estimating its environmental liabilities, and adjustments are made when additional information becomes available that affects the estimated costs to study or remediate any environmental issues. When only a wide range of

(1) Impairment charges are presented for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and for the year ended December 31, 2013.
The fair values of impaired real estate and intangible assets were determined by using the following information, depending on availability, in order of preference: signed purchase and sale agreements or letters of intent; recently quoted bid or ask prices, or market prices for comparable properties; estimates of cash flow, which consider, among other things, contractual and forecasted rental revenues, leasing assumptions, and expenses based upon market conditions; and expectations for the use of the real estate. Based on these inputs, the Company determined that its valuation of the impaired real estate and intangible assets falls within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

In addition to the disclosures for assets and liabilities required to be measured at fair value at the balance sheet date, companies are required to disclose the estimated fair values of all financial instruments, even if they are not carried at their fair values. The fair values of financial instruments are estimates based upon market conditions and perceived risks at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013. These estimates require management’s judgment and may not be indicative of the future fair values of the assets and liabilities.
Financial assets and liabilities for which the carrying values approximate their fair values include cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and escrow deposits, and accounts receivable and payable. Generally, these assets and liabilities are short-term in duration and are recorded at fair value on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The estimated fair values of the fixed-rate mortgage and other loans receivable, revolving credit facilities and the fixed-rate mortgages and notes payable have been derived based on market quotes for comparable instruments or discounted cash flow analyses using estimates of the amount and timing of future cash flows, market rates and credit spreads. The mortgage and other loans receivable, revolving credit facilities and the mortgages and notes payable were measured using a market approach from nationally recognized financial institutions with market observable inputs such as interest rates and credit analytics. These measurements are classified as Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The following table discloses fair value information for these financial instruments (in thousands):

Note 10. Significant Credit and Revenue Concentration

As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company’s real estate investments are operated by 404 and 377 tenants, respectively, that engage in retail, service and distribution activities across various industries throughout the United States.

Note 11. Discontinued Operations

In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-08, which amends the requirements for reporting discontinued operations (see Note 2). Under ASU 2014-08, a disposal of a component of an entity or a group of components of an entity is required to be reported in discontinued operations if the disposal represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity's operations and financial results. The Company has early adopted the provisions of ASU 2014-08 beginning with the period ended March 31, 2014, and will apply the provisions prospectively. Properties that were reported as held for sale as of December 31, 2013, will continue to be reported under the prior standards and will be presented in discontinued operations until they are disposed of.
As a result, net gains or losses from the disposition of these properties, as well as the current and prior period operations, of these properties will continue to be reclassified to discontinued operations. The results of discontinued operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, are summarized below (dollars in thousands):

Note 13. Incentive Award Plan and Stock Option Plan
Under the Company’s Incentive Award Plan (the “Plan”), the Company may grant equity incentive awards to eligible employees, directors and other service providers. Awards under the Plan may be in the form of stock options, restricted stock, dividend equivalents, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, performance awards, stock payment awards, performance share awards, LTIP units and other incentive awards. If an award under the Plan is forfeited, expires or is settled for cash, any shares subject to such award may, to the extent of such forfeiture, expiration or cash settlement, be used again for new grants under the Plan. As of June 30, 2014, 2.6 million shares remained available for award under the Plan.
Restricted Shares of Common Stock
During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company granted 0.4 million shares under the Plan to certain named executive officers and employees. The Company recorded $3.8 million in deferred compensation associated with these grants. As of June 30, 2014, approximately 2.0 million non-vested restricted shares of common stock were outstanding.
Performance Share Awards
During the six months ended June 30, 2014, in connection with the 2014 bonus program, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors approved an initial target grant of 242,883 performance shares to the named executive officers of the Company. The performance period of this grant runs from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2016. Pursuant to the performance share award agreement, each participant is eligible to vest in and receive shares of the Company's common stock based on the initial target number of shares granted multiplied by a percentage range between 0% and 250%. The percentage range is based on the attainment of total shareholder return of the Company compared to a specified peer group of companies during the performance period. In addition, each performance share award entitles its holder to a cash payment equal to the aggregate dividends that would have been outstanding on each dividend record date over the performance period. Based on the grant date fair value, the Company expects to recognize $3.3 million in compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period associated with this grant.
As of June 30, 2014, under each separate annual performance award, the Company's total shareholder return compared to the specified peer group during the performance periods would have resulted in the release of 1.1 million shares, in the aggregate. In addition, approximately $0.4 million in dividend rights have been accrued. The projected shares to be released are not considered issued under the Plan until the performance period has ended and the actual number of shares to be released is determined. The performance shares and dividend rights are subject to forfeiture in the event of a non-qualifying termination of a participant prior to the performance period end date.

Stock compensation
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recognized $3.0 million and $5.5 million, respectively, in stock-based compensation expense, which is included in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company recognized $1.8 million and $3.6 million, respectively in stock-based compensation expense.
As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the remaining unamortized stock-based compensation expense, including amounts relating to the performance awards, totaled $17.4 million and $15.6 million, respectively, which is recognized as the greater of the amount amortized on a straight-line basis over the service period of each applicable award or the amount vested over the vesting periods.

Note 14. Loss Per Share
Loss per share has been computed using the two-class method. Loss per common share under the two-class method is computed by dividing the sum of distributed earnings to common stockholders and undistributed earnings allocated to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. In applying the two-class method, undistributed earnings are allocated to both common shares and participating securities based on the weighted average shares outstanding during the period. Classification of the Company's unvested restricted stock, which contain rights to receive nonforfeitable dividends, are deemed participating securities under the two-class method. Under the two class method, earnings attributable to unvested restricted shares are deducted from loss from continuing operations and net loss attributable to common stockholders in the computation of loss per share for each.

The table below is a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator used in the computation of basic and diluted loss per share (dollars in thousands):

The Company intends to satisfy its exchange obligation for the principal amount of the Convertible Notes to the exchange note holders entirely in cash. As the Company intends to settle the principal amount of the Convertible Notes in cash, the "if-converted" method to include convertible debt in diluted EPS is not applicable and the treasury stock method is being used. As the Company's stock price is below the conversion price, there are no potentially dilutive shares associated with the Convertible Notes.

Overview
Spirit Realty Capital, Inc. (the "Company") is a Maryland corporation and operates as a self-administered and self-managed REIT that seeks to generate and deliver sustainable and attractive returns for stockholders by investing primarily in and managing a portfolio of single-tenant, operationally essential real estate throughout the United States that is generally leased on a long-term, triple-net basis primarily to tenants engaged in retail, service and distribution industries. Single tenant, operationally essential real estate generally refers to free-standing, commercial real estate facilities where tenants conduct activities that are essential to the generation of their sales and profits.
On July 17, 2013, the Company merged with and into Cole Credit Property Trust II, Inc. ("Cole II"), a Maryland Corporation, pursuant to the Merger Agreement ("Merger").
The Company’s operations are carried out through its operating partnership, Spirit Realty, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”). Spirit General OP Holdings, LLC ("OP Holdings"), one of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries, is the sole general partner and owns 1.0% of the Operating Partnership. The Company and a wholly-owned subsidiary are the sole limited partner and own the remaining 99.0% of the Operating Partnership.
We have elected to be taxed as a REIT for federal income tax purposes commencing with our taxable year ended December 31, 2005. We believe that we have been organized and have operated in a manner that has allowed us to qualify as a REIT for federal income tax purposes commencing with such taxable year, and we intend to continue operating in such a manner.
We generate our revenue primarily by leasing our properties to our tenants. As of June 30, 2014, our undepreciated gross investment in real estate and loans totaled approximately $7.55 billion, representing investment in 2,369 properties, including properties securing our mortgage loans. Of this amount, 98.5% consisted of our gross investment in real estate, representing ownership of 2,224 properties, and the remaining 1.5% consisted of commercial mortgage and equipment loans receivable secured by 145 properties or related assets. As of June 30, 2014, our owned properties were approximately 98.7% occupied (based on number of properties), and our leases had a weighted average non-cancelable remaining lease term (based on annual contractual rent) of approximately 10.1 years. Our leases are generally originated with long lease terms, typically non-cancelable initial terms of 15 to 20 years and tenant renewal options for additional years. As of June 30, 2014, approximately 87% of our single-tenant properties (based on annual rent) provided for increases in future annual base contractual rent.

2014 Highlights
For the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, Spirit Realty Capital:
Recognized revenues of $151.8 million, more than double the revenues reported in the second quarter of 2013 largely due to the Merger completed on July 17, 2013.
Generated Adjusted Funds from Operations (AFFO) of $0.20 per share, Funds from Operations (FFO) of less than $0.01 per share, and net loss of $0.24 per share.
Closed 24 real estate transactions and invested $207.7 million (including $1.2 million follow on investments in existing properties) which added 86 properties to our portfolio, earning an initial cash yield of approximately 7.72% under leases with an average remaining term of 18.0 years.
Strengthened the balance sheet and acquisition capacity by:
Issuing $402.5 million of 2.875% Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 and $345.0 million of 3.75% Convertible Senior Notes due 2021, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $726.2 million.
Completing a secondary offering of 26,450,000 shares of common stock, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $271.2 million.
Establishing an at-the-market program (ATM) allowing for the periodic issuance of its common stock which raised $16.6 million on 1.6 million shares sold during the quarter.
Completing an exchange offer for $912.4 million outstanding principal balance of certain net-lease mortgage notes issued under its Spirit Master Funding Program, with each class of new notes having a rating of "A+" by Standard & Poor's Rating Services (S&P).
Extinguishing $527.8 million of debt with a weighted average interest rate of 6.54% and weighted average remaining term of 25 months.

Raised over $1 billion through a combination of registered offerings of common stock and unsecured convertible notes.
Factors that May Influence Our Operating Results
Rental Revenue
Our revenues are generated predominantly from receipt of rental revenue. Our ability to grow rental revenue will depend on our ability to acquire additional properties, increase rental rates and/or occupancy. Approximately 87% of our single-tenant properties contain rent escalators, or provisions that periodically increase the base rent payable by the tenant under the lease. Generally, our rent escalators increase rent at specified dates by: (1) a fixed amount; or (2) the lesser of (a) 1 to 1.25 times any increase in the CPI over a specified period, or (b) a fixed percentage, typically 1% to 2% per year. As of June 30, 2014, 98.7% of our owned properties (based on number of properties) were occupied.
For the three months ended June 30, 2014, Shopko contributed 13.8% of our total revenue. Walgreen Company (“Walgreens”), our next largest tenant, contributed 3.9% of our total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Because a significant portion of our revenues are derived from rental revenues received from Shopko and Walgreens, defaults, breaches or delay in payment of rent by these tenants may materially and adversely affect us.
Without giving effect to the exercise of tenant renewal options, the weighted average remaining term of our leases as of June 30, 2014 was 10.1 years (based on annual rent). Approximately 11.5% of our leases (based on annual rent) as of June 30, 2014 will expire prior to January 1, 2018. The stability of our rental revenue generated by our properties depends principally on our tenants’ ability to pay rent and our ability to collect rents, renew expiring leases or re-lease space upon the expiration or other termination of leases, lease currently vacant properties and maintain or increase rental rates at our leased properties. Adverse economic conditions, particularly those that affect the markets in which our properties are located, or downturns in our tenants’ industries could impair our tenants’ ability to meet their lease obligations to us and our ability to renew expiring leases or re-lease space. In particular, the bankruptcy of one or more of our tenants could adversely affect our ability to collect rents from such tenant and maintain our portfolio’s occupancy.
Our ability to grow revenue will depend, to a significant degree, on our ability to acquire additional properties. We primarily focus on opportunities to provide capital to small and middle market companies that we conclude have stable and proven operating histories and attractive credit characteristics, but lack the access to capital that large companies often have. We believe our experience, in-depth market knowledge and extensive network of long-standing relationships in the real estate industry will provide us access to an ongoing pipeline of attractive investment opportunities.
Our Triple-Net Leases
We generally lease our properties to tenants pursuant to long-term, triple-net leases that require the tenant to pay all property operating expenses, such as real estate taxes, insurance premiums and repair and maintenance costs. As of June 30, 2014, approximately 85% of our single tenant properties (based on annual rent) are subject to triple-net leases. Occasionally, we have entered into a lease pursuant to which we retain responsibility for the costs of structural repairs and maintenance. Although these instances are infrequent and have not historically resulted in significant costs to us, an increase in costs related to these responsibilities could negatively influence our operating results. Similarly, an increase in the vacancy rate of our portfolio would increase our costs, as we would be responsible for costs that our tenants are currently required to pay. Additionally, contingent rents based on a percentage of the tenant’s gross sales have been historically negligible, contributing less than 1% of our rental revenue. Approximately 43.2% of our annual rent is attributable to master leases, where multiple properties are leased to a single tenant on an “all or none”

30

Table of Contents

basis and which contain cross-default provisions. Where appropriate, we seek to use master leases to prevent a tenant from unilaterally giving up underperforming properties while maintaining well performing properties.
Interest Expense
As of June 30, 2014, we had an approximately $4.0 billion principal balance outstanding of largely secured, fixed-rate mortgage notes payable and borrowings under our revolving credit facilities. As of June 30, 2014, the weighted average stated interest rate on our fixed and variable-rate debt, excluding non-utilization fees, the amortization of deferred financing costs and debt discounts/premiums, was approximately 5.06%. Our fixed-rate debt structure will provide us with a stable and predictable cash requirement related to our debt service. The variable rate debt consists of 26 mortgage notes. We entered into interest rate swaps that effectively fixed the interest rates at approximately 4.55% on a significant portion of this variable rate debt. We amortize the deferred financing costs and debt discounts/premiums associated with our fixed-rate debt to interest expense using the effective interest rate method over the terms of the related notes. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, non-cash interest expense recognized on our revolving credit facilities, mortgages and notes payable totaled approximately $1.3 million and our non-utilization fee on our Credit Facility was $0.6 million. Any changes to our debt structure, including borrowings under the $400.0 million Credit Facility or debt financing associated with property acquisitions, could materially influence our operating results depending on the terms of any such indebtedness. Most of our debt provides for scheduled principal payments. As principal is repaid, our interest expense decreases.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses include employee compensation costs, professional fees, consulting, portfolio servicing costs and other general and administrative expenses. As a public company, our annual general and administrative expenses have increased due to added legal, insurance, accounting and other expenses related to corporate governance, SEC reporting and other compliance matters.
Transaction Costs
As we acquire properties, we may incur transaction costs that we may be required to expense. For properties acquired with in-place leases, we allocate the purchase price of real estate to the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities based on their estimated fair values and acquisition costs are expensed as incurred. For properties acquired in connection with a sale leaseback, transaction costs are capitalized and amortized over the term of the lease as reduction to rental revenue. As a result, acquisition transaction costs may vary between periods depending on the nature of the acquisition.
Impact of Inflation
Our leases typically contain provisions designed to mitigate the adverse impact of inflation on our results of operations. Since tenants are typically required to pay all property operating expenses, increases in property-level expenses at our leased properties generally do not adversely affect us. However, increased operating expenses at vacant properties and the limited number of properties that are not subject to full triple-net leases could cause us to incur additional operating expense. Additionally, our leases generally provide for rent escalators (see “Rental Revenue” above) designed to mitigate the effects of inflation over a lease’s term. However, since some of our leases do not contain rent escalators and many that do limit the amount by which rent may increase, any increase in our rental revenue may not keep up with the rate of inflation.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires our management to use judgment in the application of accounting policies, including making estimates and assumptions. We base estimates on the best information available to us at the time, our experience and on various other assumptions believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. If our judgment or interpretation of the facts and circumstances relating to various transactions or other matters had been different, it is possible that different accounting would have been applied, resulting in a different presentation of our condensed consolidated financial statements. From time to time, we re-evaluate our estimates and assumptions. In the event estimates or assumptions prove to be different from actual results, adjustments are made in subsequent periods to reflect more current estimates and assumptions about matters that are inherently uncertain. A summary of our critical accounting policies is included in our Annual Report on Form

31

10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 in the section entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” We have not made any material changes to these policies during the periods covered by this quarterly report.
