January 5, 2022 GMT

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 5, 2022--

Innovative Industrial Properties, Inc. (IIP), the first and only real estate company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IIPR) focused on the regulated U.S. cannabis industry, announced today its operating, investment and capital markets activity from October 1, 2021 through today.

Operating Activity

As of January 5, 2022, IIP owned 103 properties located in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, representing a total of approximately 7.7 million rentable square feet (including approximately 2.5 million rentable square feet under development / redevelopment). As of January 5, 2022, IIP had invested approximately $1.7 billion across its portfolio (consisting of purchase price and construction funding and improvements reimbursed to tenants, but excluding transaction costs) and had committed an additional approximately $316.1 million to reimburse certain tenants and sellers for completion of construction and improvements at IIP’s properties. These statistics do not include an $18.5 million loan from IIP to a developer for construction of a regulated cannabis cultivation and processing facility in California and up to $55.0 million that may be funded between June 15, 2022 and July 31, 2022 pursuant to IIP’s lease with a tenant at one of IIP’s Pennsylvania properties, as the tenant at that property may not elect to have IIP disburse those funds and pay IIP the corresponding base rent on those funds.

Investment Activity

From October 1, 2021 through today, IIP made 29 acquisitions (including 28 new properties and the acquisition of certain facilities at an existing property) for properties located in California, Colorado, Michigan, North Dakota and Pennsylvania, and executed one lease amendment to provide an additional improvement allowance at a property located in Massachusetts. In these transactions, IIP established new tenant relationships with Gold Flora, LLC, Medicine Man Technologies, Inc. (Schwazze) and Southwest Alternative Care, LLC (Kaya Cannabis), while expanding existing relationships with Columbia Care Inc., Curaleaf Holdings, Inc., LivWell Holdings, Inc. and Temescal Wellness of Massachusetts, LLC.

___________

 

(1)

Includes expected rentable square feet at completion of construction for certain properties.

 

(2)

Excludes transaction costs.

 

(3)

The tenant is expected to complete improvements at the property, for which IIP agreed to provide reimbursement of up to $9.0 million.

 

(4)

The amount relates to a lease amendment which increased the improvement allowance under a lease at one of IIP’s Massachusetts properties by $8.7 million to a total of $23.7 million, and also resulted in a corresponding adjustment to the base rent for the lease at the property.

 

(5)

IIP acquired the central utility plant facilities from the tenant at the property, which increased the total rentable square feet at the property to 205,000 square feet, provided reimbursement to the tenant for certain other improvements made at the property, and amended the lease to increase the improvement allowance for future improvements by $550,000, all of which resulted in a corresponding adjustment to the base rent for the property.

 

(6)

IIP acquired a portfolio of 27 properties in Colorado, Pennsylvania and North Dakota.

Capital Markets Activity

In December 2021, IIP Operating Partnership, LP, IIP’s operating partnership subsidiary (the Operating Partnership), and IIP entered into privately-negotiated exchange agreements with certain holders of the Operating Partnership’s 3.75% Exchangeable Senior Notes due 2024 (the Notes), pursuant to which the Operating Partnership delivered and paid an aggregate of (a) 1,684,237 shares of the IIP common stock, which were the number of aggregate shares issuable upon exchange of the Notes pursuant to the indenture governing the Notes; and (b) approximately $2.3 million in cash, collectively, in exchange for approximately $110.4 million principal amount of the Notes (the Exchange Transactions). Following the closing of the Exchange Transactions, approximately $33.4 million in aggregate principal amount of the Notes remain outstanding with terms unchanged. IIP executed the Exchange Transactions in part to mitigate future stockholder dilution, as the exchange rate for the Notes adjusts each quarter pursuant to the indenture as a result of IIP’s issuances of common stock dividends, resulting in additional shares being issuable to holders of the Notes over time upon an election by the noteholder to exchange the Notes for shares of IIP’s common stock.

IIP did not conduct any capital raising activities during the period from October 1, 2021 through today and has approximately $231.7 million in shares of common stock available for issuance under its “at-the-market” equity offering program.
