Section 2: EX-99.1 (EXHIBIT 99.1)

Exhibit


Exhibit 99.1

Phillips Edison & Company Reports First Quarter 2020 Results, Provides Update on COVID-19 Impact, and Updates Estimated Value Per Share to $8.75

Record portfolio occupancy of 95.6%

Surpassed $1.3 billion of cumulative stockholder distributions

Implemented executive base salary reductions as part of plan to maximize financial flexibility and preserve cash in response to COVID-19 pandemic


CINCINNATI -- May 12, 2020 - Phillips Edison & Company, Inc. (“PECO” or the “Company”), an internally-managed real estate investment trust (“REIT”) and one of the nation’s largest owners and operators of grocery-anchored shopping centers, reported net income of $11.2 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, an improvement from a net loss of $5.8 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2019.

First Quarter 2020 Highlights (vs. First Quarter 2019)
Same-center net operating income (“NOI”) increased 2.6% to $86.9 million
Leased portfolio occupancy totaled 95.6%, an increase from 93.0% at March 31, 2019
Executed 214 leases (new, renewal, and options) totaling 1.1 million square feet with comparable new lease spreads of 6.8% and comparable renewal lease spreads of 11.2%
Funds from operations (“FFO”) increased 11.9% to $68.2 million; FFO per diluted share increased to $0.20 from $0.19
Core FFO increased 8.4% to $60.2 million; Core FFO per diluted share increased to $0.18 from $0.17
FFO and Core FFO totaled 122.2% and 107.9%, respectively, of total distributions made during the quarter
Paid off $30 million term loan due in 2021, leaving the Company with no material term loan maturities until 2022

Estimated Value per Share Update
On May 6, 2020, the Company’s board of directors updated the EVPS of its common stock to $8.75 as of its March 31, 2020 financials. The EVPS was below the midpoint of the range ($8.45 to $9.68) provided by Duff & Phelps, LLC, an independent third-party valuation firm. The decrease was primarily driven by the estimated negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on PECO’s non-grocery tenants resulting from social distancing and stay-at-home guidelines and the uncertainty of the duration and effect on the overall economy. Previously, as of its March 31, 2019 financials, the Company’s EVPS was $11.10.

Management Commentary
“We ended our second consecutive quarter with record leased occupancy, which improved to 95.6% at March 31, 2020,” said Jeff Edison, chairman and chief executive officer of PECO. “Additionally, during the quarter we saw strong growth in our portfolio, illustrated by an 8.4% increase in Core FFO, compared to the first quarter of 2019, representing 107.9% of our total distributions. Despite this performance, the environment in the first quarter was materially different compared to today. Our current focus is working closely with our neighbors (tenants) and associates during this unprecedented time resulting from COVID-19.”
“Our core philosophy of owning and operating grocery-anchored shopping centers has never been more critical than during the ongoing pandemic. During this difficult time, all of our centers have remained open due to the





necessity-based nature of our grocery anchors and other essential retailers. However, approximately 30% of our total neighbor spaces are temporarily closed due to restrictions on businesses and restaurants, as well as social distancing and stay-at-home mandates. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our portfolio has been material.
“In response to the resulting uncertainty, we have implemented several measures to maximize our financial flexibility, including the temporary suspension of our monthly stockholder distributions, expense reductions including executive management salary decreases and workforce reductions, and a $200 million draw on our revolving credit facility. The draw was made to protect the liquidity required to operate the business effectively for the foreseeable future.
“It is difficult to predict when the economy will stabilize and what lasting effects this pandemic will have on our neighbors, our portfolio, and the economy over the long term. These factors and the anticipated reduction in cash flow were considered in the recently completed independent valuation performed by Duff & Phelps. As a result, our Board of Directors has lowered our EVPS to $8.75, versus our previous EVPS of $11.10.
“Despite this reduction in value, we are proud of our track record of 111 consecutive months of distributions and distributing over $1.3 billion to our stockholders in the form of regular monthly distributions. This represents approximately 46% of the proceeds from our initial public offerings that have been returned to our investors through distributions. Our temporary distribution suspension will be reevaluated once the pandemic has stabilized and we can assess our ongoing cash flows.
“We are working tirelessly with our neighbors to understand their needs and to ensure they are aware of all the resources available to help them. Maintaining regular dialogue with our neighbors will be critical as we seek to understand their future plans to reopen when the stay-at-home mandates begin to lift and the economy reopens.”

Measures Taken to Maximize Financial Flexibility During Pandemic Uncertainty
PECO has implemented a number of measures to mitigate the negative financial and operational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic (including those mentioned above) to preserve liquidity and ensure that PECO is able to meet its operating needs for a sustained period:
The Board approved a temporary 25% reduction to the chief executive officer’s base salary, a temporary 10% reduction to the remaining executive management team’s respective base salaries (president, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and general counsel), and a 10% reduction to board members’ base compensation for the 2020-2021 term.
Monthly distributions have been temporarily suspended.
The Company drew $200 million in April on its $500 million revolving credit facility.
All capital projects are being delayed to the extent possible.
Expense reductions are being implemented at the property and corporate levels, including a reduction in workforce.
The Share Repurchase Program for DDI (death, qualifying disability or determination of incompetence) requests has been temporarily suspended. The Share Repurchase Program for standard requests remains suspended.
PECO has formed an internal task force dedicated to understanding the CARES Act and other SBA programs that may help its neighbors in securing resources to help them with liquidity concerns. The Company is contacting each of its neighbors to understand their current business situation and needs, and to help them re-open their stores as quickly as possible.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 Financial Results
Net Income
For the first quarter of 2020, net income totaled $11.2 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $5.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019.
The improvement is primarily attributable to a decrease in non-cash impairment charges resulting from disposition activity in 2019, coupled with 2.6% same-center NOI growth and lower general and administrative expenses compared to the first quarter of 2019. These improvements were partially offset by the loss from dispositions during the three months ended March 31, 2020 versus the comparable period.

FFO as Defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”)
For the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, FFO attributable to stockholders and convertible noncontrolling interests increased 11.9% to $68.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, from $61.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, during the first quarter of 2019.
The improvements were driven by NOI growth from higher rent and recoveries, lower amortization of corporate intangibles, lower general and administrative expenses, lower interest expense, and a decrease in the estimated earn-out liability.

Core FFO
For the first quarter of 2020, Core FFO increased 8.4% to $60.2 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $55.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, during the same year-ago period.
The improvements were driven by NOI growth, lower general and administrative expenses, and lower interest expense.

Same-Center NOI
For the first quarter of 2020, same-center NOI increased 2.6% to $86.9 million compared to $84.7 million during the first quarter of 2019. The improvement was driven by a $0.23, or 1.9%, increase in average minimum rent per square foot, increased same-center occupancy, and higher recovery of expenses when compared to the first quarter of 2019. These increases were partially offset by higher real estate taxes.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2020 Portfolio Overview
Portfolio Statistics
At quarter-end, PECO’s wholly-owned portfolio consisted of 285 properties, totaling approximately 31.9 million square feet located in 31 states. This compares to 300 properties, totaling approximately 34.1 million square feet located in 32 states as of March 31, 2019.
Leased portfolio occupancy was a record 95.6%, an improvement from 95.4% at December 31, 2019. Anchor occupancy increased to 98.3% from 98.0% at December 31, 2019, while in-line occupancy decreased to 90.1% from 90.2% at December 31, 2019. These strong results were driven by demand for retail space in well-located grocery-anchored neighborhood shopping centers.

Leasing Activity
During the first quarter of 2020, 214 leases (new, renewal and options) were executed totaling approximately 1.1 million square feet. This compared to 270 leases executed totaling approximately 1.0 million square feet during the first quarter of 2019.
Comparable rent spreads during the quarter, which compare the percentage increase (or decrease) of new or renewal leases to the expiring lease of a unit that was occupied within the past 12 months, were 6.8% for new leases, 11.2% for renewal leases (excluding options), and 10.4% combined (new and renewal leases).






Disposition & Acquisition Activity
PECO sold three properties, generating $17.4 million in gross proceeds during the quarter. In the near term, sale proceeds are expected to be used to help preserve liquidity during the current economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In the future, disposition proceeds are expected to be used to fund tax-efficient acquisitions, fund redevelopment opportunities in owned centers, and delever the balance sheet.
During the quarter, PECO acquired land that was previously subject to a ground lease, as well as an outparcel adjacent to one of its shopping centers.
The Company anticipates selling non-core assets during the coming quarters as its capital recycling program winds down; however, the pace of dispositions and acquisitions will be impacted by the current economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Balance Sheet Highlights at March 31, 2020
At quarter-end, PECO had approximately $454.7 million of borrowing capacity available on its $500 million revolving credit facility, net of outstanding letters of credit. On April 1, 2020, PECO drew $200 million on its revolving credit facility, leaving approximately $255 million of borrowing capacity remaining.
Net debt to TEV was 45.0% at March 31, 2020, compared to 39.5% at December 31, 2019. This increase was driven by the change in EVPS, as net debt decreased $19.5 million from December 31, 2019.
At March 31, 2020, the Company's outstanding debt had a weighted-average interest rate of 3.3%, a weighted-average maturity of 4.7 years, and 81.9% of its total debt was fixed-rate debt. This compared to a weighted-average interest rate of 3.4%, a weighted-average maturity of 5.0 years, and 89.4% fixed-rate debt at December 31, 2019.

Distributions
For the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, total distributions of $55.8 million were paid to common stockholders and operating partnership unit (“OP unit”) holders, including $15.9 million reinvested through the distribution reinvestment plan, for net cash distributions of $39.9 million.
During the quarter, FFO totaled 122.2% of total distributions and Core FFO totaled 107.9% of total distributions, compared to 111.3% and 101.4%, respectively, for the first quarter of 2019.
The Company made its March 2020 distribution of $0.05583344 per share ($0.67 annualized) to stockholders and OP unit holders of record on March 16, 2020 entirely in cash on April 1, 2020. Following this distribution, monthly distributions have been temporarily suspended and will be reevaluated once the pandemic has stabilized and PECO is able to fully assess the impact of COVID-19 on its business.
Together with Phillips Edison Grocery Center REIT II, Inc., the Company has distributed over $1.3 billion to its stockholders and OP unit holders in the form of monthly distributions.

Share Repurchase Program (“SRP”)
During the first quarter of 2020, approximately 288,000 shares of common stock, totaling $2.7 million, were repurchased under the SRP. The SRP for requests related to DDI have been temporarily suspended and the SRP for standard requests remains suspended.

Non-GAAP Disclosures
Same-Center Net Operating Income
We present Same-Center NOI as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define NOI as total operating revenues, adjusted to exclude non-cash revenue items, less property operating expenses and real estate taxes. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, Same-Center NOI represents the NOI for the 279 properties that were wholly-owned and operational for the entire portion of both comparable reporting periods. We believe Same-Center NOI provides useful information to our investors about our financial and operating performance because it 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 (loss). Because Same-Center NOI excludes the change in NOI from properties acquired or disposed of after December 31, 2018, 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 as it does not reflect the operations of our entire portfolio, nor does it reflect the impact of general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income (expense), 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.
Funds from Operations and Core Funds from Operations
FFO is a non-GAAP performance financial measure that is widely recognized as a measure of REIT operating performance. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”) defines FFO as net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and gains (or losses) from change in control, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for impairment losses on real estate and impairments of in-substance real estate investments in investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of the depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. We calculate FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests in a manner consistent with the Nareit definition, with an additional adjustment made for noncontrolling interests that are not convertible into common stock.
Core FFO is an additional performance financial measure used by us as FFO includes certain non-comparable items that affect our performance over time. We believe that Core FFO is helpful in assisting management and investors with the assessment of the sustainability of operating performance in future periods. We believe it is more reflective of our core operating performance and provides an additional measure to compare our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that may cause short-term fluctuations in net income (loss). To arrive at Core FFO, we adjust FFO attributable to stockholders and convertible noncontrolling interests to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items including, but not limited to, depreciation and amortization of corporate assets, changes in the fair value of the earn-out liability, gains or losses on the extinguishment or modification of debt, transaction and acquisition expenses, and amortization of unconsolidated joint venture basis differences.
FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) or income (loss) from continuing operations under GAAP, as an indication of our liquidity, nor as an indication of funds available to cover our cash needs, including our ability to fund distributions. Core FFO may not be a useful measure of the impact of long-term operating performance on value if we do not continue to operate our business plan in the manner currently contemplated.
Accordingly, FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements, and should not be viewed as more prominent measures of performance than net income (loss) or cash flows from operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO, as presented, may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs.

Restricted stock awards were dilutive to FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests and Core FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and, accordingly, their impact was included in the weighted-average common shares used to calculate diluted FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests per share and Core FFO per share. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 restricted stock awards with a weighted-average impact of 0.7 million shares had an anti-dilutive effect upon the calculation of earnings per share and thus were excluded. As these shares were not anti-dilutive to diluted FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests and Core FFO per share, they are included here.

Our Response to COVID-19 PECO has taken the following steps to maximize its financial flexibility and preserve cash given the uncertainty and fluidity of the COVID-19 pandemic: 1. The Board approved a temporary 25% reduction to the CEO’s base salary, a temporary 10% reduction to the executive management team’s base salary (president, chief operating officer, chief financial officer, and general counsel), and a temporary 10% reduction to board members’ base compensation for the 2020-2021 term. 2. Monthly distributions have been temporarily suspended. 3. The Company drew $200 million in April on its $500 million revolving credit facility. 4. All capital projects are being delayed to the extent possible. 5. Expense reductions are being implemented at the property and corporate levels, including a reduction in workforce. 6. The Share Repurchase Program for DDI (death, qualifying disability or determination of incompetence) has been temporarily suspended. The Share Repurchase Program for standard requests remains suspended. We expect to reevaluate distributions and share repurchases once the pandemic has stabilized and we are able to fully assess the impact of COVID-19 on our business. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 14

Estimated Value Per Share Update Duff & Phelps, an independent third-party valuation firm, produced an estimated value per share (“EVPS”) range of $8.45 to $9.68 as of March 31, 2020 • On May 6, 2020, the Company’s board of directors established the EVPS of its common stock to be $8.75 • 12.5% below the original offering price of $10.00 per share, 21.2% below the previous EVPS of $11.10 • Primary drivers for the change in EVPS: ⦁ The COVID-19 pandemic has had a material impact on retail real estate ⦁ The long-term impact of COVID-19 on our portfolio, retail real estate, and the economy is unclear ⦁ Even as neighbor spaces begin to reopen, the impact to retail and service operators is likely negative for the foreseeable future Please note that the EVPS is not intended to represent an enterprise or liquidation value of our Company. It is important to remember that the EVPS may not reflect the amount you would obtain if you were to sell your shares or if we liquidated our assets. Further, the EVPS is as of a moment in time, and the value of our shares and assets may change over time as a result of several factors including, but not limited to, future acquisitions or dispositions, other developments related to individual assets, changes in the real estate and capital markets, the duration and full effects from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the pace of the economic recovery, and we do not undertake to update the EVPS to account for any such events. You should not rely on the EVPS as being an accurate measure of the then-current value of your shares in making a decision to buy or sell your shares, including whether to participate in our dividend reinvestment plan or our share repurchase program. For a description of the methodology and assumptions used to determine the EVPS, see our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 17

Appendix


 
Non-GAAP Measures We present Same-Center NOI as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define NOI as total operating revenues, adjusted to exclude non-cash revenue items, less property operating expenses and real estate taxes. . As of March 31, 2020, Same-Center NOI represents the NOI for the 279 properties that were wholly-owned and operational for the entire portion of both comparable reporting periods. We believe Same-Center NOI provides useful information to our investors about our financial and operating performance because it 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 (loss). Because Same-Center NOI excludes the change in NOI from properties acquired or disposed of after December 31, 2018, 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 as it does not reflect the operations of our entire portfolio, nor does it reflect the impact of general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, other income (expense), 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. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 24

Non-GAAP Measures Funds from Operations and Core Funds from Operations FFO is a non-GAAP performance financial measure that is widely recognized as a measure of REIT operating performance. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”) defines FFO as net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property and gains (or losses) from change in control, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for impairment losses on real estate and impairments of in-substance real estate investments in investees that are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of the depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. We calculate FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests in a manner consistent with the Nareit definition, with an additional adjustment made for noncontrolling interests that are not convertible into common stock. Core FFO is an additional performance financial measure used by us as FFO includes certain non-comparable items that affect our performance over time. We believe that Core FFO is helpful in assisting management and investors with the assessment of the sustainability of operating performance in future periods. We believe it is more reflective of our core operating performance and provides an additional measure to compare our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that may cause short-term fluctuations in net income (loss). To arrive at Core FFO, we adjust FFO attributable to stockholders and convertible noncontrolling interests to exclude certain recurring and non-recurring items including, but not limited to, depreciation and amortization of corporate assets, changes in the fair value of the earn-out liability, gains or losses on the extinguishment or modification of debt, transaction and acquisition expenses, and amortization of unconsolidated joint venture basis differences. FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) or income (loss) from continuing operations under GAAP, as an indication of our liquidity, nor as an indication of funds available to cover our cash needs, including our ability to fund distributions. Core FFO may not be a useful measure of the impact of long-term operating performance on value if we do not continue to operate our business plan in the manner currently contemplated. Accordingly, FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements, and should not be viewed as more prominent measures of performance than net income (loss) or cash flows from operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our FFO, FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests, and Core FFO, as presented, may not be comparable to amounts calculated by other REITs. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 26

(2) Restricted stock awards were dilutive to FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests and Core FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and, accordingly, their impact was included in the weighted-average common shares used to calculate diluted FFO Attributable to Stockholders and Convertible Noncontrolling Interests and Core FFO per share. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 27


 
Non-GAAP Measures Our debt is subject to certain covenants, and as of March 31, 2020, we were in compliance with the restrictive covenants of our outstanding debt obligations. We expect to continue to meet the requirements of our debt covenants over the next twelve months. We believe our debt to total enterprise value and debt covenant compliance as of March 31, 2020 allows us access to future borrowings as needed in the near term. The following table presents our calculation of net debt to total enterprise value, inclusive of our prorated portion of net debt and cash and cash equivalents owned through our joint ventures, as of March 31, 2020, December 31, 2019, and March 31, 2019 (dollars in thousands): March 31, 2020 December 31, 2019 March 31, 2019 Net debt: Total debt, excluding market adjustments and deferred financing expenses $ 2,421,098 $ 2,421,520 $ 2,498,024 Less: Cash and cash equivalents 37,445 18,376 13,753 Total net debt $ 2,383,653 $ 2,403,144 $ 2,484,271 Enterprise value: Total net debt $ 2,383,653 $ 2,403,144 $ 2,484,271 Total equity value(1) 2,914,555 3,682,161 3,603,085 Total enterprise value $ 5,298,208 $ 6,085,305 $ 6,087,356 Net debt to total enterprise value 45.0% 39.5% 40.8% (1) Total equity value is calculated as the number of common shares and OP units outstanding multiplied by the EVPS as of March 31, 2020, December 31, 2019, and March 31, 2019, respectively. There were 333.1 million diluted shares outstanding with an EVPS of $8.75, 331.7 million diluted shares outstanding with an EVPS of $11.10, and 326.1 million diluted shares outstanding with an EVPS of $11.05 as of March 31, 2020, December 31, 2019, and March 31, 2019, respectively. www.phillipsedison.com/investors 28
