 Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT II, Inc.
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

1. ORGANIZATION
Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT II, Inc. (“we,” the “Company,” “our,” or “us”) was formed as a Maryland corporation in June 2013. Substantially all of our business is conducted through Phillips Edison Grocery Center Operating Partnership II, L.P., (the “Operating Partnership”), a Delaware limited partnership formed in June 2013. We are a limited partner of the Operating Partnership, and our wholly owned subsidiary, PE Grocery Center OP GP II LLC, is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership.
We invest primarily in well-occupied, grocery-anchored, neighborhood and community shopping centers that have a mix of creditworthy national and regional retailers that sell necessity-based goods and services in strong demographic markets throughout the United States. Our advisor and property managers are owned by Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“PECO,” “Advisor,” or “Manager”). Under the terms of the Amended and Restated Advisory Agreement (“Advisory Agreement”) and the master property management and master services agreements (“Management Agreements”) between subsidiaries of PECO and us, PECO is responsible for the management of our day-to-day activities and the implementation of our investment strategy.
On July 17, 2018, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger ("Merger Agreement") pursuant to which, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions, we will merge with PECO, with PECO continuing as the surviving corporation (“Merger”). As consideration for the Merger, PECO will issue 2.04 shares of PECO common stock in exchange for each share of our common stock and will assume the majority of our outstanding debt, subject to closing adjustments. For a more detailed discussion, see Note 3.
As of September 30, 2018, we wholly-owned fee simple interests in 86 real estate properties acquired from third parties unaffiliated with us or PECO. In addition, we own a 20% equity interest in a joint venture that owned 13 real estate properties as of September 30, 2018 (see Note 5).

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Certain of our accounting estimates are particularly important for an understanding of our financial position and results of operations and require the application of significant judgment by management. For example, significant estimates and assumptions have been made with respect to the useful lives of assets; recoverable amounts of receivables; and other fair value measurement assessments required for the preparation of the consolidated financial statements. As a result, these estimates are subject to a degree of uncertainty.
Other than those noted below, there have been no changes to our significant accounting policies during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. For a full summary of our accounting policies, refer to our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 27, 2018.
Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation—The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Readers of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should refer to the audited consolidated financial statements of Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT II, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2017, which are included in our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all normal and recurring adjustments necessary for the fair presentation of the unaudited consolidated financial statements for the periods presented have been included in this Quarterly Report. Our results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, are not necessarily indicative of the operating results expected for the full year.
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include our accounts and those of our majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated upon consolidation.
Investment in Unconsolidated Joint Venture—We account for our investment in our unconsolidated joint venture using the equity method of accounting as we exercise significant influence over, but do not control, this entity. This investment was initially recorded at cost and is subsequently adjusted for contributions made to and distributions received from the joint venture. Earnings or losses on our investment are recognized in accordance with the terms of the applicable joint venture agreement, generally through a pro rata allocation. Under a pro rata allocation, net income or loss is allocated between the partners in the joint venture based on their respective stated ownership percentages.
We use the cumulative earnings approach to classify distributions from our unconsolidated joint venture. Distributions received are considered returns on investment and classified as cash inflows from operating activities unless our cumulative distributions received less distributions received in prior periods that were determined to be returns of investment exceed cumulative equity in earnings recognized by us. When such an excess occurs, the current-period distribution up to this excess is considered a return of investment and is classified as cash inflows from investing activities.
On a periodic basis, management assesses whether there are indicators, including the operating performance of the underlying real estate and general market conditions, that the value of our investment in our unconsolidated joint venture may be impaired. An investment’s value is impaired only if management’s estimate of the fair value of the investment is less

6



than its carrying value and such difference is deemed to be other-than-temporary. To the extent impairment has occurred, the loss is measured as the excess of the carrying amount of the investment over its estimated fair value.
Management’s estimates of fair value are based upon a discounted cash flow model for each specific investment that includes all estimated cash inflows and outflows over a specified holding period and, where applicable, any estimated debt premiums, capitalization rates, discount rates and credit spreads used in these models are based upon rates we believe to be within a reasonable range of current market rates.
Newly Adopted and Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements—The following table provides a brief description of newly adopted accounting pronouncements and their effect on our consolidated financial statements:
Standard
 
Description
 
Date of Adoption
 
Effect on the Financial Statements or Other Significant Matters
ASU 2017-05, Other Income - Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets (Subtopic 610-20)
 
This update amends existing guidance in order to provide consistency in accounting for the derecognition of a business or nonprofit activity.
 
January 1, 2018
 
We have evaluated the impact of ASU 2017-05 on $0.8 million of deferred gains relating to the contribution of real estate assets in 2016 to our joint venture. As a result of our evaluation, we determined that this contribution meets all of the requirements under ASC 610-20 as a completed sale. In accordance with the modified retrospective transition method, we recognized the cumulative effect of the change, representing the recognition of $0.8 million of previously deferred gain as of December 31, 2017, in the opening balance of Accumulated Deficit with a corresponding adjustment to the opening balance of Accounts Payable and Other Liabilities as of the beginning of 2018.
ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230);
ASU 2016-18, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230)
 
These updates address the presentation of eight specific cash receipts and cash payments on the statement of cash flows as well as clarify the classification and presentation of restricted cash on the statement of cash flows.
 
January 1, 2018
 
We adopted these ASUs by applying a retrospective transition method which requires a restatement of our consolidated statement of cash flows for all periods presented.
ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)
 
This update outlines a comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 states that “an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services.” While ASU 2014-09 specifically references contracts with customers, it also applies to certain other transactions such as the sale of real estate or equipment. Expanded quantitative and qualitative disclosures are also required for contracts subject to ASU 2014-09.
 
January 1, 2018
 
The majority of our revenue is lease revenue from our wholly-owned properties. We record these amounts as Rental Income and Tenant Recovery Income on the consolidated statements of operations. These revenue amounts are excluded from the scope of ASU 2014-09. As a result, the adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not result in any adjusting entries to prior periods as our revenue recognition related to these revenues aligned with the updated guidance.

The following table provides a brief description of recent accounting pronouncements that could have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements:
Standard
 
Description
 
Date of Adoption
 
Effect on the Financial Statements or Other Significant Matters
ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820)
 
This ASU eliminates, adds and modifies certain disclosure requirements for fair value measurements as part of the FASB’s disclosure framework project. Early adoption is permitted.
 
January 1, 2019
 
We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of these standards will have on our consolidated financial statements.
ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326)
 
This update amends existing guidance by replacing the incurred loss impairment methodology currently used with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of information to inform credit loss estimates.
 
January 1, 2020
 
We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of this standard will have on our consolidated financial statements, but do not expect the adoption to have a material impact.
ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842);

ASU 2018-01, Leases (Topic 842): Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842;

ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842, Leases; and

These updates amend existing guidance by recognizing lease assets and lease liabilities on the balance sheet and disclosing key information about leasing arrangements. Early adoption is permitted as of the original effective date.
 
January 1, 2019
 
We are currently evaluating the impact the adoption of these standards will have on our consolidated financial statements. We have identified areas within our accounting policies we believe could be impacted by the new standard. This standard impacts the lessor’s ability to capitalize certain costs related to leasing, which will result in a reduction in the amount of execution costs currently being capitalized in connection with leasing activities and an increase to our Property Operating expenses. The standard will also require new disclosures within the accompanying notes to the consolidated financial statements.

We expect to adopt the practical expedients available for implementation under the standard. By adopting these practical expedients, we will not be required to reassess (i) whether an expired or existing contract meets the definition of a lease; (ii) the lease classification at the adoption date for existing leases; and (iii) whether the costs previously capitalized as initial direct costs would continue to be amortized. This allows us to continue to account for our leases where we are the lessee as operating leases, however, any new or renewed leases may be classified as financing leases. We currently have an immaterial number of leases of this type. We also expect to recognize right of use assets and lease liability on our consolidated balance sheets related to certain leases where we are the lessee.

In July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11. The update allows lessors to use a practical expedient to account for non-lease components and related lease components as a single lease component instead of accounting for them separately, if certain conditions are met. We expect to utilize this practical expedient.

We will continue to evaluate the effect the adoption of these ASUs will have on our consolidated financial statements. However, we currently believe that the adoption will not have a material impact for operating leases where we are a lessor and will continue to record revenues from rental properties for our operating leases on a straight-line basis. We are still evaluating the impact for leases where we are the lessee.
Reclassifications—The following line item on our consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017, was reclassified:
Acquisition Expenses were combined with General and Administrative.

3. PROPOSED MERGER WITH PECO
On July 17, 2018, we entered into the Merger Agreement, pursuant to which we will merge with PECO, with PECO continuing as the surviving corporation. The Merger will result in a national portfolio of approximately 320 grocery-anchored shopping centers encompassing approximately 36 million square feet in established trade areas across 33 states.

8



As consideration for the Merger, PECO will issue 2.04 shares of PECO common stock in exchange for each share of our common stock, which, for our stockholders, is equivalent to $22.54 based on PECO’s most recent estimated net asset value per share (“EVPS”) of $11.05. The exchange ratio is based on a thorough review of the relative valuation of each entity, including factoring in PECO’s growing investment management business as well as each company’s transaction costs. We will not pay any internalization or disposition fees in connection with the Merger. Our outstanding debt is expected to be refinanced or assumed by PECO at closing under the terms of the Merger Agreement.
The Merger Agreement provides certain termination rights for us and for PECO. In connection with the termination of the Merger Agreement, under certain specified circumstances, (i) we may be required to pay PECO a termination fee of $31.7 million, and (ii) PECO may be required to pay us a termination fee of $75.6 million in the event that PECO terminates the Merger Agreement. The Merger Agreement provided us with a 30-day go-shop period pursuant to which we could solicit, receive, evaluate, and enter into negotiations with respect to alternative proposals from third-parties. The go-shop period ended during the third quarter.
The parties to the Merger Agreement or their respective affiliates will enter into an agreement to terminate, effective immediately prior to the Merger, the Advisory Agreement and Management Agreements, in each case with no further payment under such agreements other than amounts accrued thereunder and previously unpaid.
Immediately following the closing of the Merger, PECO stockholders are expected to own approximately 71% and our stockholders are expected to own approximately 29% of the combined company.

4. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
The following describes the methods we use to estimate the fair value of our financial and nonfinancial assets and liabilities: 
Cash and Cash Equivalents, Restricted Cash, Accounts Receivable, and Accounts Payable—We consider the carrying values of these financial instruments to approximate fair value because of the short period of time between origination of the instruments and their expected realization.
Real Estate Investments—The purchase prices of the investment properties, including related lease intangible assets and liabilities, were allocated at estimated fair value based on Level 3 inputs, such as discount rates, capitalization rates, comparable sales, replacement costs, income and expense growth rates, and current market rents and allowances as determined by management.
Debt Obligations—We estimate the fair value of our debt by discounting the future cash flows of each instrument at rates currently offered for similar debt instruments of comparable maturities by our lenders using Level 3 inputs. The discount rates used approximate current lending rates for loans or groups of loans with similar maturities and credit quality, assuming the debt is outstanding through maturity and considering the debt’s collateral (if applicable). We have utilized market information, as available, or present value techniques to estimate the amounts required to be disclosed.
The following is a summary of borrowings as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 (dollars in thousands):

Recorded value does not include deferred financing costs of $3.9 million and $5.3 million as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively.
Derivative Instruments—As of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we had five interest rate swaps that fixed LIBOR on $570 million of our unsecured term loan facilities (“Term Loans”). All interest rate swap agreements are measured at fair value on a recurring basis. The valuation of these instruments is determined using widely accepted valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows of each derivative. This analysis reflects the contractual terms of the derivatives, including the period to maturity, and uses observable market-based inputs, including interest rate curves and implied volatilities. The fair values of interest rate swaps are determined using the market standard methodology of netting the discounted future fixed cash receipts (or payments) and the discounted expected variable cash payments (or receipts). The variable cash payments (or receipts) are based on an expectation of future interest rates (forward curves) derived from observable market interest rate curves.
In accordance with ASC 820 Fair Value Measurement, we incorporate credit valuation adjustments to appropriately reflect both our own nonperformance risk and the respective counterparty’s nonperformance risk in the fair value measurements. In adjusting the fair value of our derivative contracts for the effect of nonperformance risk, we have considered the impact of netting and any applicable credit enhancements, such as collateral postings, thresholds, mutual puts, and guarantees.
Although we determined that the significant inputs used to value our derivatives fell within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with our counterparties and our own credit risk utilize Level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads, to evaluate the likelihood of default by us and our counterparties. However, as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, we have assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of our derivative positions and have determined that the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation of our derivatives. As a result, we have determined that our derivative valuations in their entirety are classified in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

We record derivative assets in Other Assets, Net and derivative liabilities in Accounts Payable and Other Liabilities on our consolidated balance sheets.

6. REAL ESTATE ACQUISITIONS
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, we acquired one and nine grocery-anchored shopping centers, respectively. None of these acquisitions were considered business combinations, but rather were classified as asset acquisitions. As such, most acquisition-related costs were capitalized and are included in the total purchase prices shown below.

The revolving credit facility matures in January 2019, with an option to extend the maturity date to July 2019. Gross borrowings under our revolving credit facility were $114.0 million and gross payments on our revolving credit facility were $49.0 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The revolving credit facility has a maximum capacity of $350 million. The revolving credit facility is expected to be paid in full at closing of the proposed Merger.
(2) 
Of the outstanding Term Loans balance, $185 million matures in July 2019 with options to extend to 2021, $185 million matures in June 2020 with an option to extend to 2021, and $200 million matures in 2024. A maturity date extension requires the payment of an extension fee of 0.15% of the outstanding principal amount of the corresponding tranche. Our outstanding Term Loans are expected to be refinanced or assumed by PECO at closing of the proposed Merger.

8. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Litigation—We are involved in various claims and litigation matters arising in the ordinary course of business, some of which involve claims for damages. Many of these matters are covered by insurance, although they may nevertheless be subject to deductibles or retentions. Although the ultimate liability for these matters cannot be determined, based upon information currently available, we believe the resolution of such claims and litigation will not have a material adverse effect on our consolidated financial statements.
Environmental Matters—In connection with the ownership and operation of real estate, we may potentially be liable for costs and damages related to environmental matters. In addition, we may own or acquire certain properties that are subject to environmental remediation. Generally, the seller of the property, the tenant of the property, and/or another third party is responsible for environmental remediation costs related to a property. Additionally, in connection with the purchase of certain properties, the respective sellers and/or tenants may agree to indemnify us against future remediation costs. We also carry environmental liability insurance on our properties that provides limited coverage for any remediation liability and/or pollution liability for third-party bodily injury and/or property damage claims for which we may be liable. We are not aware of any environmental matters which we believe are reasonably likely to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

9. DERIVATIVES AND HEDGING ACTIVITIES
Risk Management Objective of Using Derivatives—We are exposed to certain risks arising from both our business operations and economic conditions. We principally manage our exposure to a wide variety of business and operational risks through management of our core business activities. We manage economic risks, including interest rate, liquidity, and credit risk, primarily by managing the amount, sources, and duration of our debt funding and the use of derivative financial instruments. Specifically, we enter into interest rate swaps to manage exposures that arise from business activities that result in the receipt or payment of future known and uncertain cash amounts, the value of which are determined by interest rates. Our derivative financial instruments are used to manage differences in the amount, timing, and duration of our known or expected cash receipts and our known or expected cash payments principally related to our investments and borrowings.
Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk—Interest rate swaps designated as cash flow hedges involve the receipt of variable amounts from a counterparty in exchange for our making fixed-rate payments over the life of the agreements without exchange of the underlying notional amount.
The changes in the fair value of derivatives designated, and that qualify, as cash flow hedges are recorded in AOCI and are subsequently reclassified into earnings in the period that the hedged forecasted transaction affects earnings. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, such derivatives were used to hedge the variable cash flows associated with certain variable-rate debt. The ineffectiveness previously reported in earnings for the period ended September 30, 2017, was adjusted to reflect application of the provisions of ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), as of the beginning of 2017. This adjustment was not material.
Amounts reported in AOCI related to these derivatives will be reclassified to Interest Expense, Net as interest payments are made on the variable-rate debt. During the next twelve months, we estimate that an additional $5.9 million will be reclassified from Other Comprehensive Income (“OCI”) as a decrease to Interest Expense, Net.
The following is a summary of our interest rate swaps that were designated as cash flow hedges of interest rate risk as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 (notional amount in thousands):

10. EQUITY
On May 9, 2018, our board of directors increased its EVPS of our common stock from $22.75 to $22.80 based substantially on the estimated market value of our portfolio of real estate properties as of March 31, 2018. We engaged a third party valuation firm to provide a calculation of the range in EVPS of our common stock as of March 31, 2018, which reflected certain balance sheet assets and liabilities as of that date. Shares of our common stock are issued under the DRIP and redeemed under the Share Repurchase Program (“SRP”), as discussed below, at the same price as the estimated value per share in effect at the time of issuance or redemption.
Distribution Reinvestment Plan—The DRIP allows stockholders to invest distributions in additional shares of our common stock. Stockholders who elect to participate in the DRIP, and who are subject to U.S. federal income taxation laws, will incur a tax liability on an amount equal to the fair value on the relevant distribution date of the shares of our common stock purchased with reinvested distributions, even though such stockholders have elected not to receive the distributions in cash. In connection with the proposed Merger, the DRIP was temporarily suspended for the month of July 2018; as a result, all DRIP participants received their July 2018 distributions in cash rather than in stock. The DRIP resumed in August 2018, with the distribution paid in September 2018.
Share Repurchase Program—The SRP provides an opportunity for stockholders to have shares of common stock repurchased, subject to certain restrictions and limitations. The cash available for repurchases on any particular date will generally be limited to the proceeds from the DRIP during the preceding four fiscal quarters, less amounts already used for repurchases since the beginning of that period. Our board of directors reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time, to reject any request for repurchase. In connection with the proposed Merger, we also temporarily suspended the SRP for the month of July 2018 and resumed in August 2018.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2018, repurchase requests surpassed the funding limits under the SRP. When we are unable to fulfill all repurchase requests in a given month, we will honor requests on a pro rata basis to the extent funds are available. We will continue to fulfill repurchases sought upon a stockholder’s death, “qualifying disability,” or “determination of incompetence” in accordance with the terms of the SRP.
Approximately 0.9 million shares of our common stock were repurchased under the SRP during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. In October 2018, approximately 137,000 shares of our common stock were repurchased under the SRP. Repurchase requests in connection with a stockholder’s death, “qualifying disability,” or “determination of incompetence” were completed in full. The remaining repurchase requests that were in good order were fulfilled on a pro rata basis.
In connection with the proposed Merger, the combined company will be required to reset its share repurchase queue. As a result, all SRP requests currently on file will be canceled on the date the Merger closes. All stockholders wishing to participate in the SRP after the Merger must submit a new SRP form to the transfer agent, DST, after the Merger to be included in the next standard repurchase of the combined company. All standard repurchase requests must be on file and in good order to be included for next standard repurchase of the combined company, which is expected to be in July 2019. At that time, should the demand for standard redemptions exceed the funding available for repurchases, the combined company is expected to make pro-rata redemptions. Following that standard repurchase, standard repurchase requests that are on file with the combined company and in good order that have not been fully executed (due to pro rata redemptions), will remain on file for future redemptions.
Class B Units—The Operating Partnership issues limited partnership units that are designated as Class B units for asset management services provided by PECO. The vesting of the Class B units is contingent upon a market condition and service condition. We had 0.5 million and 0.4 million unvested Class B units outstanding as of September 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively. We anticipate the outstanding Class B units will remain unvested upon completion of the Merger, and are therefore expected to be retired at that time.

11. EARNINGS PER SHARE
We use the two-class method of computing earnings per share (“EPS”), which is an earnings allocation formula that determines EPS for common stock and any participating securities according to dividends declared (whether paid or unpaid). Under the two-class method, basic EPS is computed by dividing the income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur from share equivalent activity.
Restricted stock is granted under our 2013 Independent Director Stock Plan and is potentially dilutive. There were 6,900 and 5,000 unvested restricted stock awards outstanding as of September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. During periods of net loss, these securities are anti-dilutive and, as a result, are excluded from the weighted-average common shares used to calculate diluted EPS.
Class B units are participating securities as they contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents, and are potentially dilutive due to their right of conversion to common stock upon vesting. There were 0.5 million and 0.4 million Class B units of the Operating Partnership outstanding as of September 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The vesting of the Class B units is contingent upon satisfaction of a market condition and service condition. Since the satisfaction of both conditions was not probable as of September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Class B units remained unvested and thus were not included in the diluted net loss per share computations.

12. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Economic Dependency—We are dependent on PECO for certain services that are essential to us, including asset acquisition and disposition decisions, asset management, operating and leasing of our properties, and other general and administrative responsibilities. In the event that PECO is unable to provide such services, we would be required to find alternative service providers, which could result in higher costs and expenses.
Advisor—Our current Advisory Agreement became effective September 1, 2017. Pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, the Advisor is entitled to specified fees for certain services, including managing our day-to-day activities and implementing our investment strategy. The Advisor manages our day-to-day affairs and our portfolio of real estate investments subject to the board of directors’ supervision.

Such distributions are in addition to the incentive compensation that the Advisor and its affiliates may receive from us. During the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Operating Partnership issued 59,182 and 69,341 Class B units, respectively, to the Advisor for asset management services performed. Prior to September 2017, a portion of the asset management fee and subordinated participation, and distributions on Class B units, were paid to a former third-party advisor. Effective September 2017, this relationship was terminated.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q of Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT II, Inc. (“we,” the “Company,” “our,” or “us”) other than historical facts may be considered forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). We intend for all such forward-looking statements to be covered by the applicable safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in those acts. Such statements include, in particular, statements about our plans, strategies, and prospects and are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including known and unknown risks, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated. These risks include, without limitation, (i) risks associated with our ability to consummate the proposed Merger and the timing and closing of the Merger; (ii) changes in national, regional, or local economic climates; (iii) local market conditions, including an oversupply of space in, or a reduction in demand for, properties similar to those in our portfolio; (iv) vacancies, changes in market rental rates, and the need to periodically repair, renovate, and re-let space; (v) changes in interest rates and the availability of permanent mortgage financing; (vi) competition from other available properties and the attractiveness of properties in our portfolio to our tenants; (vii) the financial stability of tenants, including the ability of tenants to pay rent; (viii) changes in tax, real estate, environmental, and zoning laws; (ix) the concentration of our portfolio in a limited number of industries, geographies, or investments; and (x) any of the other risks included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Therefore, such statements are not intended to be a guarantee of our performance in future periods. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “believe,” “continue,” or other similar words. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date this report is filed with the SEC. We make no representations or warranties (express or implied) about the accuracy of any such forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and we do not intend to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
Any such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors and are based on a number of assumptions involving judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive, and market conditions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately. To the extent that our assumptions differ from actual conditions, our ability to accurately anticipate results expressed in such forward-looking statements, including our ability to generate positive cash flow from operations, make distributions to stockholders, and maintain the value of our real estate properties, may be significantly hindered.
See Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors of this Form 10-Q and Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors of our 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC on March 27, 2018, for a discussion of some of the risks and uncertainties, although not all of the risks and uncertainties, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those presented in our forward-looking statements. Except as required by law, we do not undertake any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements contained in this Form 10-Q. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements are disclosed in Part II, Item 1A. Risk Factors and Part I, Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of this Form 10-Q.
All references to “Notes” throughout this document refer to the footnotes to the consolidated financial statements in Part I, Item 1. Financial Statements.

Overview
We are a public non-traded real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that invests in retail real estate properties. Our primary focus is on grocery-anchored neighborhood and community shopping centers that meet the day-to-day needs of residents in the surrounding trade areas. As of September 30, 2018, we wholly-owned 86 real estate properties acquired from third parties unaffiliated with us or PECO. In addition, we own a 20% equity interest in a joint venture, which owned 13 real estate properties as of September 30, 2018.
In July 2018 we entered into the Merger Agreement with PECO. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, PECO will issue 2.04 shares of PECO common stock in exchange for each share of our common stock, which is equivalent to $22.54 per share based on PECO’s most recent EVPS of $11.05. The exchange ratio reflects our most recent estimated value per share, adjusted for estimated transaction-related expenses. We will not pay any internalization or disposition fees in connection with the proposed Merger as no value consideration was given for the advisory services that PECO provides to us. Our outstanding debt, excluding the revolving credit facility, is expected to be refinanced or assumed by PECO at closing under the terms of the Merger Agreement. For a more detailed discussion, see Note 3.

Results of Operations
We wholly-owned 86 properties as of September 30, 2018, and 83 properties as of September 30, 2017. The Same-Center column in the tables below includes the 74 properties that were owned and operational prior to January 1, 2017. The Non-Same-Center column includes properties that were acquired after December 31, 2016, in addition to corporate-level income and expenses. In this section, we primarily explain fluctuations in activity shown in the Same-Center column as well as any notable fluctuations in the Non-Same-Center column related to corporate-level activity. Unless otherwise discussed below, year-over-year comparative differences for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, are almost entirely attributable to the number of properties owned and the length of ownership of these properties.

Total revenues—Of the $3.5 million increase in total revenues, $2.1 million was related to our 12 non-same-center properties. The remaining variance was the result of an increase in revenue among same-center properties, primarily due to a $0.5 million increase in minimum rent, which was driven by a $0.17, or 1.4%, increase in same-center minimum rent per square foot since September 30, 2017. The growth in rental income was partially offset by a $0.3 million reduction in straight-line rent adjustments. We also saw an increase of $1.2 million in our tenant recovery income, as a result of improved recovery rates of 1.0% and higher recoverable expenses.
Property operating expenses—Of the $0.7 million increase in property operating expenses, $0.3 million was related to our 12 non-same-center properties. The remaining variance was primarily attributable to a $0.3 million increase in bad debt expense related to tenant bankruptcies and evictions.
Real estate tax expenses—Of our increase in same-center real estate tax expenses, $0.7 million was due to a decrease in favorable tax appeal results in the current quarter. The remaining variance was related to reassessments in several states, which increased for the 2018 tax year, including several properties being reassessed for the first time since they were purchased.
Termination of affiliate arrangements—The $6.0 million termination of affiliate arrangements was related to the termination of our relationship with our former advisor. In exchange for a payment of $6.0 million, our former advisor sold the 77,243 Class B units they owned back to the Operating Partnership at our $22.75 NAV per share at that date, redeemed all of their interests in a special limited partner interest co-owned with the PECO sponsor, and terminated all fee-sharing arrangements with us.
Interest expense, net—Our increase in interest expense was driven by our increase in total debt borrowings and our weighted-average interest rate, which was partially offset by savings from refinancing certain property-level debt through our revolving credit facility in the current year. The weighted-average interest rate and maturity as of September 30, 2018, were 3.4% and 2.7 years, respectively, compared to a weighted-average interest rate and maturity of 3.1% and 3.9 years, respectively, as of September 30, 2017. The decrease in our average debt maturity is due to an increase in borrowings on the revolving credit facility, which is currently set to expire in January 2019. This balance is expected to be paid in full at the closing of the proposed Merger.
Transaction expenses—The $1.7 million of transaction expenses resulted from costs incurred in connection with the proposed Merger, primarily associated with third-party professional fees, such as legal, tax, financial advisor, and consulting fees.
Other income, net—Our $0.9 million increase in other income is primarily from the equity income from our Joint Venture as a result of a gain on a property sale.

Total revenues—Of the $12.6 million increase in total revenues, $10.1 million was related to our 12 non-same-center properties. The remaining variance was the result of an increase in revenue among same-center properties, primarily due to a $1.8 million increase in minimum rent, which was driven by a $0.17, or 1.4%, increase in same-center minimum rent per square foot since September 30, 2017. The increase in same-center revenue was also attributed to a $1.7 million increase in tenant recovery income as a result of higher recoverable expenses and a 2.5% increase in our recovery rate. The growth in rental and tenant recovery income was partially offset by a $0.9 million reduction in straight-line rent adjustments.
Property operating expenses—Of the $2.1 million increase in property operating expenses, $1.4 million was related to our 12 non-same-center properties. The remaining variance is primarily attributed to higher recoverable expenses, as well as a $0.3 million increase in bad debt expense related to tenant bankruptcies and evictions.
Real estate tax expenses—Of our increase in same-center real estate tax expenses, $0.6 million was due to a decrease in favorable tax appeal results in the current year. The remaining variance was related to reassessments in several states, which increased expenses for the 2018 tax year, with several properties being reassessed for the first time since they were purchased.
General and administrative expenses—Our decrease in general and administrative expenses was attributable to a $0.5 million reduction in asset management fees as a result of the reduction in the asset management fee rate, a $0.5 million decrease in acquisition expenses on properties not ultimately acquired, and a decrease in legal and consulting fees paid to third parties.
Termination of affiliate arrangements—As discussed above, the $6.0 million termination of affiliate arrangements was related to the termination of our relationship with our former advisor.
Interest expense, net—Our increase in interest expense was driven by our increase in total debt borrowings and our weighted-average interest rate, which was partially offset by savings from refinancing certain property-level debt through our revolving credit facility in the current year. The weighted-average interest rate as of September 30, 2018, was 3.4%, compared to a weighted-average interest rate of 3.1% as of September 30, 2017.
Transaction expenses—The $2.2 million of transaction expenses resulted from costs incurred in connection with the proposed Merger, primarily associated with third-party professional fees, such as legal, tax, financial advisor, and consulting fees.
Other income (expense), net—Of our $1.0 million increase in other income, $0.8 million was primarily from our equity income from our Joint Venture.

21



Leasing Activity—The average rent per square foot and cost of executing leases fluctuates based on the tenant mix, size of the space, and lease term. Leases with national and regional tenants generally require a higher cost per square foot than those with local tenants. However, such tenants will also pay for a longer term. As we continue to attract more of these national and regional tenants, our costs to lease may increase.

We consider an inline deal to be a lease for less than 10,000 square feet of gross leasable area (“GLA”).
(2) 
The cost of executing new leases, renewals, and options includes leasing commissions, tenant improvement costs, and tenant concessions. The costs associated with landlord improvements are excluded for repositioning and redevelopment projects, if any.
(3) 
A comparable lease is a lease that is executed for the exact same space (location and square feet) in which a tenant was previously located. For a lease to be considered comparable, it must have been executed within 365 days from the earlier of legal possession or the day the prior tenant physically vacated the space.
(4) 
The comparable rent spread compares the first year ABR of a new lease over the last year ABR of the prior lease of a unit that was occupied within the past twelve months.
(5) 
The portfolio retention rate is calculated by dividing (a) total square feet of retained tenants with current period lease expirations by (b) the square feet of leases expiring during the period.
The portfolio retention rate in the current quarter was significantly impacted by several tenants who filed for bankruptcy or were evicted.

Non-GAAP Measures
Same-Center Net Operating Income—We present Same-Center Net Operating Income (“Same-Center NOI”) as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define Net Operating Income (“NOI”) as total operating revenues less property operating expenses, real estate taxes, and non-cash revenue items. Same-Center NOI represents the NOI for the 74 properties that were wholly-owned and operational for the entire portion of both comparable reporting periods. We believe NOI and Same-Center NOI provide useful information to our investors about our financial and operating performance because each provides a performance measure of the revenues and expenses directly involved in owning and operating real estate assets and provides a perspective not immediately apparent from net income. Because Same-Center NOI excludes the change in NOI from properties acquired after December 31, 2016, it highlights operating trends such as occupancy levels, rental rates, and operating costs on properties that were operational for both comparable periods. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating Same-Center NOI, and accordingly, our Same-Center NOI may not be comparable to other REITs.
Same-Center NOI should not be viewed as an alternative measure of our financial performance since it does not reflect the operations of our entire portfolio, nor does it reflect the impact of general and administrative expenses, acquisition expenses, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income, or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties that could materially impact our results from operations.
