American Finance Trust, Inc. 20 FORWARD - LOOKING STATEMENTS Certain statements made in this presentation are “forward - looking statements” (as defined in Section 21E of the Exchange Act), w hich reflect the expectations of the Company regarding future events. The forward - looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the forward - looking statements. Such forward - looking statements include, but are not limited to, market and other expectations, objectives, and intentions, as well as any other statements that are not historical facts. Our potential risks and uncertainties are presented in the section titled “Item 1A - Risk Factors” disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10 - K for the year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the SEC on March 7, 2019, and the Company's subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10 - Q filed with the SEC. W e disclaim any obligation to update and revise statements contained in these materials to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or cha nges to future operating results over time, unless required by law. The following are some of the risks and uncertainties relating to us, although not all risks and unce rta inties, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those presented in our forward - looking statements: ▪ All of our executive officers are also officers, managers, employees or holders of a direct or indirect controlling interest in American Finance Advisors, LLC (the “Advisor”) or other entities under common control with AR Global Investments, LLC (the successor business to AR Capital, LLC, “A R Global”). As a result, our executive officers, the Advisor and its affiliates face conflicts of interest, including significant conflicts created by the Ad visor’s compensation arrangements with us and other investment programs advised by affiliates of AR Global and conflicts in allocating time among these entities and us, wh ich could negatively impact our operating results. ▪ The trading price of our Class A common stock and 7.50% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock, $0.01 par v alu e per share (the “Series A Preferred Stock”), may fluctuate significantly. ▪ Lincoln Retail REIT Services, LLC (“Lincoln”) and its affiliates, which provide services to the Advisor in connection with ou r r etail portfolio, faces conflicts of interest in allocating its employees’ time between providing real estate - related services to the Advisor and other programs and activitie s in which they are presently involved or may be involved in the future. ▪ The performance of our retail portfolio is linked to the market for retail space generally and factors that may impact our re tai l tenants, such as the increasing use of the Internet by retailers and consumers. ▪ Our rental revenue is dependent upon the success and economic viability of our tenants. ▪ We may be unable to enter into and consummate property acquisitions on advantageous terms or our property acquisitions may no t p erform as we expect. ▪ Provisions in our revolving unsecured corporate credit facility may limit our ability to pay dividends on our Class A common sto ck, our Series A Preferred Stock or any other equity interests we may issue. ▪ We have not generated, and in the future may not generate, operating cash flows sufficient to fund all of the dividends we pa y o ur stockholders, and, as such, we may be forced to fund dividends from other sources, including borrowings, which may not be available on favorable terms, or at all. ▪ We may be unable to pay or maintain cash dividends at the current rate or increase dividends over time. ▪ We are obligated to pay fees, which may be substantial, to the Advisor and its affiliates. ▪ Our operating results are affected by economic and regulatory changes that have an adverse impact on the real estate market i n g eneral, and we are subject to risks associated with any dislocation or liquidity disruptions that may exist or occur in global financial markets, including the c red it markets of the United States of America. ▪ We may fail to continue to qualify to be treated as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) for U.S. federal income tax purpo ses , which would result in higher taxes, may adversely affect our operations and would reduce the value of an investment in our Class A common stock, our Series A Preferr ed Stock and our cash available for dividends.

American Finance Trust, Inc. 22 DEFINITIONS AFFO : In calculating AFFO, we start with FFO, then we exclude certain income or expense items from AFFO that we consider to be more reflective of investing activities, such as fees related to the listing of our Class A common stock on the Nasdaq Global Select Market, non - cash income and expense items and the income and expense effects of other activities that are not a fundamental attribute of our day to day operating business plan, such as amounts related to the litigation arising out of AFIN's 2017 merger with American Realty Capital - Retail Centers of America, Inc . (the “Merger”) . These amounts include legal costs incurred as a result of the litigation, portions of which have been and may in the future be reimbursed under insurance policies maintained by us . Insurance reimbursements are deducted from AFFO in the period of reimbursement . We believe that excluding the litigation costs and subsequent insurance reimbursements litigation arising out of the Merger helps to provide a better understanding of the operating performance of our business . Other income and expense items also include early extinguishment of debt and unrealized gains and losses, which may not ultimately be realized, such as gains or losses on derivative instruments and gains and losses on investments . In addition, by excluding non - cash income and expense items such as amortization of above - market and below - market leases intangibles, amortization of deferred financing costs, straight - line rent, vesting and conversion of the Class B Units and share - based compensation related to restricted shares and the 2018 outperformance agreement with the Advisor from AFFO, we believe we provide useful information regarding those income and expense items which have a direct impact on our ongoing operating performance . By providing AFFO, we believe we are presenting useful information that can be used to better assess the sustainability of our ongoing operating performance without the impact of transactions or other items that are not related to the ongoing performance of our portfolio of properties . AFFO presented by us may not be comparable to AFFO reported by other REITs that define AFFO differently . Annualized Straight - Line Rent : Straight - line rent which is annualized and calculated using most recent available lease terms as of the period end indicated . Cap Rate : Capitalization rate is a rate of return on a real estate investment property based on the expected, annualized straight - lined rental income that the property will generate under its existing lease during its first year of ownership . Capitalization rate is calculated by dividing the annualized straight - lined rental income the property will generate (before debt service and depreciation and after fixed costs and variable costs) and the purchase price of the property . Weighted average cap rates are based on square feet unless otherwise indicated . Cash Cap Rate : For acquisitions, cash cap rate is a rate of return on a real estate investment property based on the expected, annualized cash rental income during the first year of ownership that the property will generate under its existing lease . For dispositions, cash cap rate is a rate of return based on the annualized cash rental income of the property to be sold . For acquisitions, cash cap rate is calculated by dividing the annualized cash rental income the property will generate (before debt service and depreciation and after fixed costs and variable costs) and the purchase price of the property . For dispositions, cash cap rate is calculated by dividing the annualized cash rental income by the contract sales price for the property . Weighted average cash cap rates are based on square feet unless otherwise indicated . Cash NOI : We define Cash NOI as NOI excluding amortization of above/below market lease intangibles and straight - line adjustments that are included in GAAP lease revenues . Executed Occupancy : Includes Occupancy as of December 31 , 2019 as defined below as well as all leases executed by both parties as of December 31 , 2019 where the tenant has yet to take possession as of such date . Experiential Retail : We define Experiential Retail as multi - tenant properties leased to tenants in the restaurant, discount retail, entertainment, salon/beauty, and grocery sectors, among others . FFO : We define FFO, a non - GAAP measure, consistent with the standards established over time by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as restated in a White Paper and approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT effective in December 2018 (the "White Paper") . The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from sales of certain real estate assets, gain and losses from change in control and impairment write - downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity . Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to exclude the proportionate share of the non - controlling interest to arrive at FFO attributable to stockholders . Our FFO calculation complies with NAREIT's definition .

 
 

American Finance Trust, Inc. 23 DEFINITIONS (CONTINUED) GAAP : Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America Gross Asset Value : Total assets plus accumulated depreciation and amortization . Investment Grade : As used herein, investment grade includes both actual investment grade ratings of the tenant or guarantor, if available, or implied investment grade . Implied investment grade may include actual ratings of tenant parent, guarantor parent (regardless of whether or not the parent has guaranteed the tenant’s obligation under the lease) or by using a proprietary Moody’s analytical tool, which generates an implied rating by measuring a company’s probability of default . Ratings information is as of December 31 , 2019 . Single - tenant portfolio tenants are 46 . 0 % actual investment grade rated and 35 . 6 % implied investment grade rate . Leasing Pipeline : Includes ( i ) all leases fully executed by both parties as of January 31 , 2020 , but after December 31 , and (ii) all leases under negotiation with an executed LOI by both parties as of January 31 , 2020 .
