IIP generated total revenues of approximately $204.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, compared to approximately $116.9 million for 2020, an increase of 75%. The increase in both periods was driven primarily by the acquisition and leasing of new properties, additional improvement allowances and construction funding at existing properties resulting in adjustments to base rent, and contractual rental escalations at certain properties. The company recorded $4.55 of net income attributable to common stockholders per diluted share and $6.66 of AFFO per diluted share (Note: AFFO per diluted share for 2021 includes the dilutive impact of the assumed full exchange of IIP’s exchangeable senior notes (the Exchangeable Senior Notes) for shares of common stock).
IIP said it had approximately $406.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments. The company also has 15% debt to total gross assets, with approximately $2.2 billion in total gross assets, representing a total annual fixed cash interest obligation of approximately $17.8 million, with no debt maturing in 2022 or 2023.
The company said in a statement that as of February 23, 2022, it owned 105 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 7.9 million rentable square feet (including approximately 2.4 million rentable square feet under development/redevelopment), with a weighted-average remaining lease term of approximately 16.6 years.
As of February 23, 2022, IIP had invested approximately $1.8 billion across its portfolio (consisting of the purchase price and construction funding and improvements reimbursed to tenants, but excluding transaction costs) and had committed an additional approximately $268.6 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.
