NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
June 30, 2012
(unaudited)

Note 1 – Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:
Organization and Nature of Business – National Retail Properties, Inc., a Maryland corporation, is a fully integrated real estate investment trust (“REIT”) formed in 1984. The term “NNN” or the “Company” refers to National Retail Properties, Inc. and all of its consolidated subsidiaries. NNN has elected to treat certain subsidiaries as taxable REIT subsidiaries. These taxable subsidiaries and their majority owned and controlled subsidiaries are collectively referred to as the “TRS.”
NNN's assets include: real estate assets, mortgages and notes receivable, and commercial mortgage residual interests. NNN acquires, owns, invests in and develops properties that are leased primarily to retail tenants under long-term net leases and primarily held for investment (“Properties” or “Property Portfolio”).

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. Operating results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, may not be indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. Amounts as of December 31, 2011, included in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, included herein, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as well as Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in NNN's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
Principles of Consolidation – NNN’s condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of each of the respective majority owned and controlled affiliates, including transactions whereby NNN has been determined to be the primary beneficiary in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) guidance included in Consolidation. All significant intercompany account balances and transactions have been eliminated. NNN applies the equity method of accounting to investments in partnerships and joint ventures that are not subject to control by NNN due to the significance of rights held by other parties.
Real Estate Portfolio – NNN records the acquisition of real estate which is not subject to a lease at cost, including acquisition and closing costs. The cost of properties developed by NNN includes direct and indirect costs of construction, property taxes, interest and other miscellaneous costs incurred during the development period until the project is substantially complete and available for occupancy. During the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, NNN recorded $436,000 and $868,000, respectively, in capitalized interest and recorded $247,000 and $569,000 in capitalized interest during the same periods in 2011, respectively.
Purchase Accounting for Acquisition of Real Estate Subject to a Lease – In accordance with the FASB guidance on business combinations, the fair value of the real estate acquired with in-place leases is allocated to the acquired tangible assets, consisting of land, building and tenant improvements, and identified intangible assets and liabilities, consisting of the value of above-market and below-market leases, value of in-place leases and value of tenant relationships, based in each case on their relative fair values. Acquisition costs incurred in connection with a business combination are expensed when incurred.
The fair value of the tangible assets of an acquired leased property is determined by valuing the property as if it were vacant, and the “as-if-vacant” value is then allocated to land, building and tenant improvements based on the determination of the fair values of these assets. The as-if-vacant fair value of a property is provided to management by a qualified appraiser.
In allocating the fair value of the identified intangible assets and liabilities of an acquired property, above-market and below-market in-place lease values are recorded as other assets or liabilities based on the present value (using an interest rate which

8



reflects the risks associated with the leases acquired) of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases, and (ii) management’s estimate of fair market lease rates for the corresponding in-place leases, measured over a period equal to the remaining term of the lease, including the probability of renewal periods. The capitalized above-market lease values are amortized as a reduction of rental income over the remaining terms of the respective leases. The capitalized below-market lease values are amortized as an increase to rental income over the initial term unless the Company believes that it is likely that the tenant would renew the option whereby the Company would amortize the value attributable to the renewal over the renewal period.
The aggregate value of other acquired intangible assets, consisting of in-place leases, is measured by the excess of (i) the purchase price paid for a property after adjusting existing in-place leases to market rental rates over (ii) the estimated fair value of the property as-if-vacant, determined as set forth above. The value of in-place leases exclusive of the value of above-market and below-market in-place leases is amortized to expense over the remaining non-cancelable periods of the respective leases. If a lease were to be terminated prior to its stated expiration, all unamortized amounts relating to that lease would be written off. The value of tenant relationships is reviewed on individual transactions to determine if future value was derived from the acquisition.

Investment in an Unconsolidated Affiliate – NNN accounts for its investment in an unconsolidated affiliate under the equity method of accounting. In September 2007, NNN entered into a joint venture, NNN Retail Properties Fund I LLC (the “NNN Crow JV”) with an affiliate of Crow Holdings Realty Partners IV, L.P., which is accounted for under the equity method of accounting.
Cash and Cash Equivalents - NNN considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents consist of cash and money market accounts. Cash equivalents are stated at cost plus accrued interest, which approximates fair value.
Cash accounts maintained on behalf of NNN in demand deposits at commercial banks and money market funds may exceed federally insured levels; however, NNN has not experienced any losses in such accounts.
Valuation of Receivables – NNN estimates the collectibility of its accounts receivable related to rents, expense reimbursements and other revenues. NNN analyzes accounts receivable and historical bad debt levels, customer credit-worthiness and current economic trends when evaluating the adequacy of the allowance for doubtful accounts. In addition, tenants in bankruptcy are analyzed and estimates are made in connection with the expected recovery of pre-petition and post-petition claims.
Earnings Per Share – Earnings per share have been computed pursuant to the FASB guidance included in Earnings Per Share. Effective January 1, 2009, the guidance requires classification of the Company’s unvested restricted share units which contain rights to receive nonforfeitable dividends, as participating securities requiring the two-class method of computing earnings per share. Under the two-class method, earnings per common share are computed by dividing the sum of distributed earnings to common stockholders and undistributed earnings allocated to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. In applying the two-class method, undistributed earnings are allocated to both common shares and participating securities based on the weighted average shares outstanding during the period.

Fair Value Measurement – NNN’s estimates of fair value of financial and non-financial assets and liabilities are based on the framework established in the fair value accounting guidance. The framework specifies a hierarchy of valuation inputs which was established to increase consistency, clarity and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures. The guidance describes a fair value hierarchy based upon three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value, two of which are considered observable and one that is considered unobservable. The following describes the three levels:
 
Level 1 – Valuation is based upon quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – Valuation is based upon inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices in markets that are not active or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
Level 3 – Valuation is generated from model-based techniques that use at least one significant assumption not observable in the market. These unobservable assumptions reflect estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. Valuation techniques include option pricing models, discounted cash flow models and similar techniques.
New Accounting Pronouncements – In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2011-10 entitled Derecognition of in Substance Real Estate - a Scope Clarification. The amendments in this update clarify the scope of current U.S. generally accepted accounting principals ("GAAP"). The amendments will resolve the diversity in practice about

10



whether the guidance in subtopic 360-20 applies to the derecognition of in substance real estate when the parent ceases to have a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary that is in substance real estate because of a default by the subsidiary on its nonrecourse debt. The amendments in this update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning on or after June 15, 2012. The adoption of the standard did not have a significant impact on NNN's financial position or results of operations.
In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-11 amending its guidance on offsetting assets and liabilities in financial statements. The objective of this update will require disclosure to facilitate comparison between those entities that prepare their financial statements on the basis of U.S. GAAP and those entities that prepare their financial statements on the basis of IFRS. The amendments in this update are effective for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. NNN is currently evaluating the provisions to determine the potential impact, if any, the adoption will have on its financial position and results of operations.
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05 which amended its guidance on the presentation of comprehensive income in financial statements. The new guidance requires that all nonowner changes in stockholders' equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. The provisions of this new guidance were effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of this guidance changed the presentation of NNN's condensed consolidated financial statements but did not have an effect on NNN's results of operations.
In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-12, which indefinitely defers certain provisions of ASU 2011-05, including a requirement for entities to present reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component in both the statement in which net earnings is presented and the statement in which other comprehensive income is presented. The effective dates and expected changes to our presentation are the same as noted in ASU 2011-05 above.
Use of Estimates – Management of NNN has made a number of estimates and assumptions relating to the reporting of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities to prepare these consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP. Significant estimates include provision for impairment and allowances for certain assets, accruals, useful lives of assets and purchase price allocation. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Reclassification – Certain items in the prior year’s consolidated financial statements and notes to consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the 2012 presentation.

The leases generally provide for limited increases in rent as a result of fixed increases, increases in the consumer price index, and/or increases in the tenant’s sales volume. Generally, the tenant is also required to pay all property taxes and assessments, substantially maintain the interior and exterior of the property and carry property and liability insurance coverage. Certain of NNN’s Properties are subject to leases under which NNN retains responsibility for specific costs and expenses of the property. Generally, the leases of the Properties provide the tenant with one or more multi-year renewal options subject to generally the same terms and conditions, including rent increases, consistent with the initial lease term.

Note 3 – Commercial Mortgage Residual Interests:

In 2010, NNN acquired the 21.1% non-controlling interest in its majority owned and controlled subsidiary, Orange Avenue Mortgage Investments, Inc. (“OAMI”), for $1,603,000, and OAMI became a wholly owned subsidiary of NNN. NNN accounted for the transaction as an equity transaction in accordance with the FASB guidance on consolidation. OAMI holds the residual interests (“Residuals”) from seven commercial mortgage securitizations. Each of the Residuals is recorded at fair value based upon an independent valuation. Unrealized gains and losses are reported as other comprehensive income in stockholders' equity and other than temporary losses as a result of a change in the timing, or amount of estimated cash flows are recorded as an other than temporary valuation impairment.

Due to the expected timing of future cash flows relating to the Residuals, the independent valuation adjusted certain of the valuation assumptions. The following table summarizes the key assumptions used in determining the value of the Residuals as of:

Note 4 – Line of Credit Payable:

In May 2011, NNN amended and restated its credit agreement increasing the borrowing capacity under its unsecured revolving credit facility from $400,000,000 to $450,000,000 and amending certain other terms under the former revolving credit facility (as the context requires, the previous and new revolving credit facility, the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Facility had a weighted average outstanding balance of $52,946,000 and a weighted average interest rate of 1.8 percent during the six months ended June 30, 2012. The Credit Facility matures May 2015, with an option to extend maturity to May 2016. The Credit Facility bears interest at LIBOR plus 150 basis points; however, such interest rate may change pursuant to a tiered interest rate structure based on NNN's debt rating. The Credit Facility also includes an accordion feature to increase the facility size up to $650,000,000, subject to lender approval. As of June 30, 2012, $142,600,000 was outstanding and $307,400,000 was available for future borrowings under the Credit Facility, excluding undrawn letters of credit totaling $3,800,000.

2) The Series D preferred stock dividends paid during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 include accumulated and unpaid dividends from the issuance date through the declaration date. The Series D preferred stock has no maturity date and will remain outstanding unless redeemed.

In February 2012, NNN filed a shelf registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission") which permits the issuance by NNN of an indeterminate amount of debt and equity securities.
In February 2012, NNN issued 11,500,000 depositary shares representing interests in our 6.625% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock ("Series D Preferred Stock") at a price of $25.00 per depositary share generating net proceeds of $277,645,000. In connection with this offering, NNN incurred stock issuance costs totaling approximately $9,855,000, consisting primarily of underwriters' fees and commissions, legal and accounting fees and printing expenses.
In March 2012, NNN redeemed all outstanding depositary shares (3,680,000) representing interests in its 7.375% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (“Series C Preferred Stock”). The Series C Preferred Stock was redeemed at $25.00 per depositary share, plus accumulated and unpaid distributions through the redemption date, for an aggregate redemption price of $25.0768229 per depositary share. The excess carrying amount of preferred stock redeemed over the cash paid to redeem the preferred stock was $3,098,000 representing Series C Preferred Stock issuance costs.
In May 2012, NNN established an at-the-market (“ATM”) equity program which allows NNN to sell up to an aggregate of 9,000,000 shares of common stock from time to time over the next three years. NNN intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to repay outstanding indebtedness under the Credit Facility, to fund potential property acquisitions and for other general corporate purposes. During the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, NNN issued approximately 395,000 shares of common stock through the ATM at an average price of $27.30 per share generating approximately $10,527,000 in net proceeds. In connection with the ATM, NNN incurred stock issuance costs totaling approximately $253,000, consisting primarily of underwriters' fees and commissions and legal and accounting fees.
In July 2012, NNN declared a dividend of $0.395 per share, which is payable in August 2012 to its common stockholders of

Note 6 – Income Taxes:
NNN has elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code (“Code”), commencing with its taxable year ended December 31, 1984.  To qualify as a REIT, NNN must meet a number of organizational and operational requirements, including a requirement that it currently distribute at least 90% of its REIT taxable income to its stockholders.  NNN intends to adhere to these requirements and maintain its REIT status. As a REIT, NNN generally will not be subject to corporate level federal income tax on taxable income that it distributes currently to its stockholders.  NNN may be subject to certain state and local taxes on its income and property, and to federal income and excise taxes on its undistributed taxable income, if any.  The provision for federal income taxes in NNN's consolidated financial statements relates to its TRS operations and any potential taxable built-in gain.  NNN did not have significant tax provisions or deferred income tax items during the periods reported hereunder.

In June 2006, the FASB issued guidance, which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company's financial statements in accordance with FASB guidance included in Income Taxes. The interpretation prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. The interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.

NNN, in accordance with FASB guidance included in Income Taxes, has analyzed its various federal and state tax filing positions. NNN believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions are well documented and supported. Additionally, NNN believes that its accruals for tax liabilities are adequate. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded pursuant to the FASB guidance. In addition, NNN did not record a cumulative effect adjustment related to the adoption of the FASB guidance.

NNN has had no increases or decreases in unrecognized tax benefits for current or prior years since adopting the guidance. Further, no interest or penalties have been included since no reserves were recorded and no significant increases or decreases are expected to occur within the next 12 months. When applicable, such interest and penalties will be recorded as non-operating expenses. The periods that remain open under federal statute are 2008 through 2012. NNN also files in many states with varying open years under statute.

Note 8 – Derivatives:
In accordance with the guidance on derivatives and hedging, NNN records all derivatives on the balance sheet at fair value. The accounting for changes in the fair value of derivatives depends on the intended use of the derivative and the resulting designation. Derivatives used to hedge the exposure to changes in the fair value of an asset, liability, or firm commitment attributable to a particular risk, such as interest rate risk, are considered fair value hedges. Derivatives used to hedge the exposure to variability in expected future cash flows, or other types of forecasted transactions, are considered cash flow hedges.
NNN’s objective in using derivatives is to add stability to interest expense and to manage its exposure to interest rate movements or other identified risks. To accomplish this objective, NNN primarily uses treasury locks, forward swaps and interest rate swaps as part of its cash flow hedging strategy. Treasury locks and forward starting swaps are used to hedge forecasted debt issuances. Treasury locks designated as cash flow hedges lock in the yield/price of a treasury security. Forward swaps also lock the associated swap spread. Interest rate swaps designated as cash flow hedges hedging the variable cash flows associated with floating rate debt involve the receipt of variable rate amounts in exchange for fixed-rate payments over the life of the agreements without exchange of the underlying principal amount.
For derivatives designated as cash flow hedges, the effective portion of changes in the fair value of the derivative is initially reported in other comprehensive income (outside of earnings) and subsequently reclassified to earnings when the hedged transaction affects earnings, and the ineffective portion of changes in the fair value of the derivative is recognized directly in earnings.
NNN discontinues hedge accounting prospectively when it is determined that the derivative is no longer effective in offsetting changes in the cash flows of the hedged item, the derivative expires or is sold, terminated, or exercised, the derivative is re-designated as a hedging instrument or management determines that designation of the derivative as a hedging instrument is no longer appropriate.

15



When hedge accounting is discontinued, NNN continues to carry the derivative at its fair value on the balance sheet, and recognizes any changes in its fair value in earnings or may choose to cash settle the derivative at that time.
In June 2011, NNN terminated its two treasury locks with a total notional amount of $150,000,000 that were hedging the risk of changes in the interest-related cash outflows associated with the potential issuance of long-term debt. The fair value of the treasury locks, designated as cash flow hedges, when terminated was a liability of $5,300,000, of which $5,218,000 was deferred in other comprehensive income.
As of June 30, 2012, $5,811,000 remains in other comprehensive income related to the effective portion of NNN’s previous interest rate hedges. During the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, NNN reclassed out of comprehensive income $114,000 as an increase to interest expense and $85,000 as a reduction to interest expense, respectively. Over the next 12 months, NNN estimates that an additional $240,000 will be reclassified as an increase in interest expense. Amounts reported in accumulated other comprehensive income related to derivatives will be reclassified to interest expense as interest payments are made on NNN’s long-term debt.
NNN does not use derivatives for trading or speculative purposes or currently have any derivatives that are not designated as hedges. NNN had no derivative financial instruments outstanding at June 30, 2012.

Note 9 – Segment Information:

As a result of a continued reduction of investments in real estate acquired for the purpose of resale, the previously reported segment of inventory assets no longer meets the criteria for significance for separate segment reporting. Therefore, for the quarters and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, NNN's operations are reported within one business segment in the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Note 10 – Fair Value Measurements:
NNN currently values its Residuals based upon an independent valuation which provides a discounted cash flow analysis based upon prepayment speeds, expected loan losses and yield curves. These valuation inputs are generally considered unobservable; therefore, the Residuals are considered Level 3 financial assets. The table below presents a reconciliation of the Residuals (dollars in thousands):

Note 11 – Fair Value of Financial Instruments:
NNN believes the carrying value of its Credit Facility approximates fair value based upon its nature, terms and variable interest rate. NNN believes that the carrying value of its cash and cash equivalents, mortgages, notes and other receivables, mortgages payable and other liabilities at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, approximate fair value based upon current market prices of similar issues. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the fair value of NNN’s notes payable and convertible notes payable, collectively, was 1,347,658,000 and $1,362,922,000, respectively, based upon the quoted market price, which is level one valuation.

Note 12 – Subsequent Events:
NNN reviewed all subsequent events and transactions that have occurred after June 30, 2012, the date of the condensed consolidated balance sheet. There were no reportable subsequent events or transactions.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of National Retail Properties, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2011. The term “NNN” or the “Company” refers to National Retail Properties, Inc. and all of its consolidated subsidiaries. NNN has elected to treat certain subsidiaries as taxable real estate investment trust subsidiaries. These subsidiaries and their majority owned and controlled subsidiaries are collectively referred to as the “TRS.”

Forward-Looking Statements

The information herein contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). These statements generally are characterized by the use of terms such as “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” or similar words or expressions. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts or guarantees of future performance and are subject to known and unknown risks. Certain factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those NNN anticipates or projects include, but are not limited to, the following:

Current financial and economic conditions may have an adverse impact on NNN, its tenants, and commercial real estate in general;
NNN may be unable to obtain debt or equity capital on favorable terms, if at all;
Loss of revenues from tenants would reduce NNN's cash flow;
A significant portion of the source of NNN's Property Portfolio annual base rent is heavily concentrated in specific industry classifications, tenants and in specific geographic locations;
Owning real estate and indirect interests in real estate carries inherent risk;
NNN's real estate investments are illiquid;
Costs of complying with changes in governmental laws and regulations may adversely affect NNN's results of operations;
NNN may be subject to known or unknown environmental liabilities and hazardous materials on properties owned by NNN;
NNN may not be able to successfully execute its acquisition or development strategies;
NNN may not be able to dispose of properties consistent with its operating strategy;
A change in the assumptions used to determine the value of commercial mortgage residual interests could adversely affect NNN's financial position;
NNN may suffer a loss in the event of a default or bankruptcy of a borrower or a tenant;
Certain provisions of NNN's leases or loan agreements may be unenforceable;
Property ownership through joint ventures and partnerships could limit NNN's control of those investments;
Competition with numerous other REITs, commercial developers, real estate limited partnerships and other investors may impede NNN's ability to grow;
NNN's loss of key management could adversely affect performance and the value of its common stock;
Uninsured losses may adversely affect NNN's ability to pay outstanding indebtedness;
Acts of violence, terrorist attacks or war may adversely affect the markets in which NNN operates and NNN's results of operations;
Vacant properties or bankrupt tenants could adversely affect NNN's business or financial condition;
The amount of debt NNN has and the restrictions imposed by that debt could adversely affect NNN's business and financial condition;
NNN is obligated to comply with financial and other covenants in its debt instruments that could restrict its operating activities, and the failure to comply with such covenants could result in defaults that accelerate the payment of such debt;
The market value of NNN's equity and debt securities is subject to various factors that may cause significant fluctuations or volatility;
NNN's failure to qualify as a real estate investment trust for federal income tax purposes could result in significant tax liability;
Even if NNN remains qualified as a REIT, NNN may face other tax liabilities that reduce operating results and cash flow;
Adverse legislative or regulatory tax changes could reduce NNN's earnings, cash flow and market price of NNN's common stock;
Compliance with REIT requirements, including distribution requirements, may limit NNN's flexibility and negatively affect NNN's operating decisions;
Changes in accounting pronouncements could adversely impact NNN's or NNN's tenants' reported financial

18



performance;
NNN's failure to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting could have a material adverse effect on its business, operating results and share price;
NNN's ability to pay dividends in the future is subject to many factors; and
Cybersecurity risks and cyber incidents could adversely affect NNN's business and disrupt operations.

Additional information related to these risks and uncertainties are included in Item 1A. Risk Factors of NNN's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and may cause NNN's actual future results to differ materially from expected results. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. NNN undertakes no obligation to update or revise such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
Overview
NNN, a Maryland corporation, is a fully integrated real estate investment trust (“REIT”) formed in 1984. NNN assets include: real estate assets, mortgages and notes receivable, and commercial mortgage residual interests. NNN acquires, owns, invests in and develops properties that are leased primarily to retail tenants under long-term net leases and primarily held for investment (“Properties” or “Property Portfolio”).
As of June 30, 2012, NNN owned 1,506 Properties, with an aggregate gross leasable area of approximately 17,798,000 square feet, located in 47 states. Approximately 98 percent of total properties in the Property Portfolio were leased as of June 30, 2012. Effective May 1, 2012, none of NNN's Properties were operated.
NNN’s management team focuses on certain key indicators to evaluate the financial condition and operating performance of NNN. The key indicators for NNN include items such as: the composition of the Property Portfolio (such as tenant, geographic and line of trade diversification), the occupancy rate of the Property Portfolio, certain financial performance ratios and profitability measures, and industry trends and performance compared to that of NNN.
NNN continues to maintain its diversification by tenant, geography and tenant’s line of trade. NNN’s highest lines of trade concentrations are the convenience store and restaurant (including full and limited service) sectors. These sectors represent a large part of the freestanding retail property marketplace and NNN’s management believes these sectors present attractive investment opportunities. NNN’s Property Portfolio is geographically concentrated in the south and southeast United States, which are regions of historically above-average population growth. Given these concentrations, any financial hardship within these sectors or geographic locations, respectively, could have a material adverse effect on the financial condition and operating performance of NNN.
Prior to December 31, 2011, NNN reported its operations in two primary business segments, investment assets and inventory assets. As a result of a continued reduction of investments in real estate acquired for the purpose of resale, the previously reported segment of inventory assets no longer meets the criteria for significance for separate segment reporting. Currently, NNN's operations are reported within one business segment in the financial statements and all properties are considered part of the Properties or Property Portfolio. As such, property counts and calculations involving property counts reflect all NNN properties.

Revenue from Continuing Operations Analysis
General.  During the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, NNN’s rental income increased primarily due to the increase in rental income from property acquisitions (See “Results of Operations – Property Analysis – Property Acquisitions”). NNN anticipates increases in rental income will continue to come from additional property acquisitions and increases in rents pursuant to lease terms.

Rental Income.  Rental Income increased in amount and as a percent of the total revenues from continuing operations for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011. The increase for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, is primarily due to the acquisition of 93 properties with aggregate gross leasable area of approximately 1,466,000 square feet during the six months ended 2012 and 218 properties with aggregate gross leasable area of approximately 3,445,000 square feet during 2011.
Real Estate Expense Reimbursement from Tenants.  Real estate expense reimbursements from tenants increased for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, but remained relatively stable as a percentage of total revenues from continuing operations. The increase is primarily attributable to a full year of reimbursements from certain properties acquired in 2011.

Analysis of Expenses from Continuing Operations
General.  Operating expenses from continuing operations increased during the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, primarily due to the increase in depreciation expense from certain properties acquired in 2011 and impairment on the commercial mortgage residual interest ("Residuals") valuations.

General and Administrative Expenses.  General and administrative expenses increased for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, but decreased as a percentage of total operating expenses and as a percentage of revenues from continuing operations. The increase in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to an increase in stock based incentive compensation.
Real Estate.  Real estate expenses increased for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, but decreased as a percentage of total operating expenses and as a percentage of revenues from continuing operations. The increase is primarily due to an increase in tenant reimbursable expenses for certain properties acquired in 2011.
Depreciation and Amortization.  Depreciation and amortization expenses increased as a percentage of total operating expenses and as a percentage of revenues from continuing operations for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase is primarily due to depreciation expense from the 218 properties

22



with aggregate gross leasable area of approximately 3,445,000 square feet acquired during 2011.
Impairment  –  Commercial Mortgage Residual Interests Valuation.  In connection with the independent valuations of the Residuals fair value, during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, NNN recorded an other than temporary valuation adjustment of $2,718,000 and $396,000, respectively, as a reduction of earnings from operations.
Interest Expense.  Interest expense increased for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same periods in 2011.
The following represents the primary changes in debt that have impacted interest expense:
(i)
the issuance of $300,000,000 in July 2011 of notes payable with a maturity of July 2021, and stated interest rate of 5.500%, and
(ii)
the decrease of $138,154,000 in the weighted average debt outstanding on the Credit Facility for the six months ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011.
Discontinued Operations
Earnings (Loss). NNN classified as discontinued operations the revenues and expenses related to its revenue generating Properties that were sold and any revenue generating Properties that were held for sale at June 30, 2012.

Cash provided by operating activities represents cash received primarily from rental income from tenants, proceeds from the disposition of certain properties and interest income less cash used for general and administrative expenses, interest expense and acquisition of certain properties. NNN’s cash flow from operating activities, net of cash used in and provided by the acquisition and disposition of certain properties, has been sufficient to pay the distributions for each period presented. NNN generally uses proceeds from its Credit Facility or from offerings of equity or debt securities in the capital markets to fund the acquisition of its properties. The change in cash provided by operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, is primarily the result of changes in revenues and expenses as discussed in “Results of Operations.” Cash generated from operations is expected to fluctuate in the future.
Changes in cash for investing activities are primarily attributable to the acquisitions and dispositions of Properties.
NNN’s financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2012, included the following significant transactions:
$77,000 in net proceeds from NNN's credit facility,
$277,645,000 in net proceeds from the issuance of 11,500,000 depositary shares representing interests in NNN's 6.625% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (the "Series D Preferred Stock") in February,
$92,000,000 paid to fully redeem NNN's 7.375% Series C Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (the "Series C Preferred Stock"),
$49,476,000 in net proceeds from the issuance of 1,881,807 shares of common stock in connection with the Dividend Reinvestment and Stock Purchase Plan ("DRIP"),
$10,527,000 in net proceeds from the issuance of approximately 395,000 shares of common stock in connection with the at-the-market ("ATM") equity program,
$81,511,000 in dividends paid to common stockholders,
$1,979,000 in dividends paid to holders of the depositary shares of NNN’s Series C Preferred Stock,
$5,926,000 in dividends paid to holders of the depositary shares of NNN’s Series D Preferred Stock, and
$50,000,000 in repayment of notes payable.

(1) Includes land and construction costs.
 As of June 30, 2012, NNN did not have any other material contractual cash obligations, such as purchase obligations, financing lease obligations or other long-term liabilities other than those reflected in the table above and previously disclosed under Item 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in NNN's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. In addition to items reflected in the table, NNN has issued preferred stock with cumulative preferential cash distributions, as described below under “Dividends.”
Management anticipates satisfying these obligations with a combination of NNN’s cash provided from operations, current

24



capital resources on hand, its credit facility, debt or equity financings and asset dispositions.
Generally the Properties are leased under long-term net leases, which generally require the tenant to pay all property taxes and assessments, substantially maintain the interior and exterior of the property and carry property, and liability insurance coverage. Therefore, management anticipates that capital demands to meet obligations with respect to these Properties will be modest for the foreseeable future and can be met with funds from operations and working capital. Certain of NNN’s Properties are subject to leases under which NNN retains responsibility for specific costs and expenses associated with the Property. Management anticipates the costs associated with NNN’s vacant Properties or those Properties that become vacant will also be met with funds from operations and working capital. NNN may be required to borrow under its credit facility or use other sources of capital in the event of unforeseen significant capital expenditures.
The lost revenues and increased property expenses resulting from vacant properties or uncollectibility of lease revenues could have a material adverse effect on the liquidity and results of operations if NNN is unable to re-lease the Properties at comparable rental rates and in a timely manner. As of June 30, 2012, NNN owned 35 vacant, un-leased Properties which accounted for less than two percent of total Properties held in NNN’s Property Portfolio.
NNN generally monitors the financial performance of NNN's significant tenants on an ongoing basis.
Dividends.  NNN has made an election to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856 through 860 of the Code, as amended, and related regulations and intends to continue to operate so as to remain qualified as a REIT for federal income tax purposes. NNN generally will not be subject to federal income tax on income that it distributes to its stockholders, provided that it distributes 100 percent of its REIT taxable income and meets certain other requirements for qualifying as a REIT. If NNN fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, it will be subject to federal income tax on its taxable income at regular corporate rates and will not be permitted to qualify for treatment as a REIT for federal income tax purposes for four years following the year during which qualification is lost. Such an event could materially adversely affect NNN’s income and ability to pay dividends. NNN believes it has been structured as, and its past and present operations qualify NNN as, a REIT.
One of NNN’s primary objectives, consistent with its policy of retaining sufficient cash for reserves and working capital purposes and maintaining its status as a REIT, is to distribute a substantial portion of its funds available from operations to its stockholders in the form of dividends.
