(1) Treasury Regulation § 1.199A-3(c)(2)(ii) requires that stockholders hold their REIT shares for more than 45 days during the 91 day period beginning on the date that is 45 days before the date on which such shares become ex-dividend with respect to such dividend in order for the dividends to be treated as Section 199A Dividends. Stockholders should consult with their tax advisors to determine whether this requirement affects any portion of the dividends included in Box 5.

(2) These amounts are a subset of, and included in, the 2021 ordinary dividend amounts (Box 1a).

(3) Represents a return of capital.

(4) The entire January 7, 2021 distribution (which was declared and had a record date in the fourth quarter of 2020) is treated as a 2021 distribution for federal income tax purposes.

(5) The distribution paid on January 6, 2022 (which was declared and had a record date in the fourth quarter of 2021) is not treated as a 2021 distribution because the Company’s aggregate cash distributions actually paid during 2021 exceeded its earnings and profits. This distribution will be reportable in 2022.
