Item 2.02.

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Set forth below are certain preliminary estimates of the results of operations of Gladstone Land Corporation (the “Company”) for the three months ended September 30, 2020. These estimates represent the most current information available to management because the Company’s financial closing procedures for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 are not yet complete. These estimates are not a comprehensive statement of the Company’s financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and the Company’s actual results may differ materially from these estimates as a result of the completion of the Company’s financial closing procedures, final adjustments and other developments arising between now and the time that the Company’s financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2020 are finalized. The estimates for the three months ended September 30, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of any future period and should be read together with the “Risk Factors” sections of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020. The preliminary financial data included below has been prepared by, and is the responsibility of, the Company’s management. PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (“PwC”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, has not audited, reviewed, compiled or performed any procedures with respect to the accompanying preliminary financial data. Accordingly, PwC does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect thereto.

The following reflects our preliminary net income, funds from operations (“FFO”) available to common stockholders and non-controlling holders of common units of limited partnership interest in the Company’s operating partnership (“OP Unitholders”), and lease revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2020:

Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2020 is preliminarily estimated to be between approximately $1.4 million and $1.9 million.

FFO available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders for the three months ended September 30, 2020 is preliminarily estimated to be between $0.14 per share and $0.16 per share.

Lease revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2020 is preliminarily estimated to be between approximately $13.6 million and $14.3 million, including participation rent amounts of between approximately $0.8 million and $1.1 million.

The following table provides a reconciliation of the preliminary estimated range of the Company’s FFO available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders for the three months ended September 30, 2020, to the most directly comparable Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (“GAAP”) measure, net income available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders. As part of the reconciliation of estimated FFO, a non-GAAP measure provided for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company has included an estimated range of the nearest GAAP measure, net income and related adjustments, based on its preliminary estimates for the corresponding period. The Company’s preliminary estimates are not complete and the figures provided in the reconciliation are subject to significant change based on a number of factors, and are provided solely for purposes of the reconciliation, and not for any other purpose. Investors are cautioned not to rely on these figures for any investment-related decision. The actual net income, determined in accordance with GAAP, will be as presented in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and may be greater or less than the current estimated range.

The Company believes that FFO available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders is useful to investors because it provides investors with a further context for evaluating the Company’s FFO results in the same manner that investors use net income, in evaluating net income available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders. In addition, because most real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) provide this metric to the investment community, the Company believes FFO available to common stockholders and non-controlling OP Unitholders is a useful supplemental measure when comparing us to other REITs. The Company believes that net income is the most directly comparable measure to FFO under GAAP.

All preliminary estimates for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 are subject to revision as the Company prepares its financial statements and disclosure for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and such revisions may be significant. Final figures will be presented in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2020 and may be greater or less than the current estimated range.
