Investor Presentation Exhibit 99.1

Slide 1

Safe Harbor Statement 1 Certain statements in this Presentation constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are statements that relate to management’s expectations or beliefs, future plans and strategies, future financial performance and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” or “potential.” Such forward-looking statements reflect current views with respect to the matters referred to and are based on certain assumptions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, that could cause the actual results, performance, or achievements of the Company to differ materially from any future results, performance, or achievement implied by such forward-looking statements. While forward-looking statements reflect the Company’s good faith beliefs, assumptions and expectations, they are not guarantees of future performance. Except as required under the federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the SEC, the Company does not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to the forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Presentation or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. Examples of forward-looking statements in this Presentation include, but are not limited to, statement(s) relating to (a) the Company’s Portfolio, Net Lease Portfolio, Long-Term Leases and Rent Escalators, Tenant Base, Growth Platform, Market Opportunity, and Redevelopment Projects, (b) Industry Fundamentals, (c) the Company’s Balance Sheet, Dividend Growth and Investment Highlights; (d) the Company’s expected quarterly dividends and growth; and (e) the impact of COVID-19. Other unknown or unpredictable factors could also have material adverse effects on our business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations and prospects. For a further discussion of these and other factors that could cause the Company’s future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, and the Company’s other filings with the SEC, including, in particular, the section entitled “Risk Factors” contained therein. In light of these risks, uncertainties, assumptions and factors, there can be no assurance that the results and events contemplated by the forward-looking statements contained in this Presentation will, in fact, transpire. Moreover, because the Company operates in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment, new risks are likely to emerge from time to time. Given these risks and uncertainties, potential investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements as a prediction of future results. Unless otherwise noted in this Presentation, all reported financial data is presented as of the period ended March 31, 2020, and all portfolio data is as of March 31, 2020. This Presentation presents certain non-GAAP financial measures, including the Company’s Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”). Please refer to the Appendix of this Presentation for complete reconciliations between each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that FFO and AFFO are helpful to investors in measuring its performance because both FFO and AFFO exclude various items included in GAAP net earnings that do not relate to, or are not indicative of, the Company’s core operating performance. The Company pays particular attention to AFFO, a supplemental non-GAAP performance measure, as the Company believes it best represents its core operating performance and allows analysts and investors to better assess the Company’s core operating performance. Further, the Company believes that AFFO is useful in comparing the sustainability of the Company’s core operating performance with the sustainability of the core operating performance of other real estate companies. The information contained herein has been prepared from public and non-public sources believed to be reliable. However, the Company has not independently verified certain of the information contained herein, and does not make any representation or warranty as to the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in this Presentation.
