NEW YORK, December 08, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Clarion Partners Real Estate Income Fund Inc. ("CPREIF" or the "Fund") has announced funds from operations ("FFO"), adjusted funds from operations and funds available for distribution for the period of January 1, 2021 to September 30, 2021.

CPREIF believes FFO is a meaningful supplemental non-GAAP operating metric. FFO is a standard REIT industry metric defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). FFO as presented below is calculated as a net increase in net assets resulting from operations (computed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. ("GAAP")), excluding (i) gain or losses from sales of investments and (ii) the change in net unrealized appreciation (depreciation) of investments.

CPREIF also believes that adjusted FFO ("AFFO") is a meaningful non-GAAP supplemental disclosure of its operating results. AFFO further adjusts FFO in order for CPREIF's operating results to reflect the specific characteristics of its business by adjusting for items it believes are not related to its core operations. The Fund’s adjustments to FFO to arrive at AFFO include removing the impact of (i) amortization premium (accretion of discount) on real estate securities, (ii) amortization of deferred origination fees and (iii) amortization of deferred loan and mortgage financing costs.

Furthermore, CPREIF believes that funds available for distribution ("FAD") is an additional meaningful non-GAAP supplemental disclosure that provides useful information for considering Fund operating results and certain other items relative to the amount of Fund distributions by removing the impact of certain non-cash items from Fund operating results. FAD is calculated as AFFO excluding (i) recurring tenant improvements, leasing commissions and other capital expenditures and adjusted for (ii) undistributed/(overdistributed) income attributable to non-consolidated joint ventures. FAD is not indicative of cash available to fund CPREIF’s cash needs and does not represent cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, as it excludes adjustments for working capital items.

FFO, AFFO and FAD should not be considered more relevant or accurate than the GAAP methodology in evaluating CPREIF’s operating performance. In addition, FFO, AFFO and FAD should not be considered alternatives to net income (loss) as indications of the Fund’s performance or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as indications of liquidity, but rather should be reviewed in conjunction with these and other GAAP measurements. Further, FFO, AFFO and FAD are not intended to be used as liquidity measures indicative of cash flow available to fund CPREIF’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions to stockholders.
