Commenting on the second quarter 2020 results, Essential Properties’ President and Chief Executive Officer, Pete Mavoides, said, “The second quarter presented an extremely challenging operating environment in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the obstacles we faced paled in comparison to those of our tenants. While we worried about whether or not to grant rent deferral requests and where our collections may land at quarter-end, our tenants were managing through mandatory shutdowns and stay-at-home orders. They confronted the threat of losing multi-generational businesses and the pain of laying off employees in large numbers, only to face the new challenge of quickly and profitability restarting operations without endangering themselves, their employees and their customers. And those complications do not compare to those faced by the front-line workers and emergency responders who have selflessly combated this pandemic, and all of the individuals and families whose health has been directly affected by it. Overall, we feel fortunate with where we are, with how the portfolio has performed, and with our prospects going forward."
