Agree Realty Corp.

on distinct market positioning
in the retail net lease space
and leveraging our expertise
and relationships to identify
superior, risk-adjusted opportunities, " Agree says.
That involves trying to
get market participants to
understand that the future of
retail lies in the free-standing
format, Agree explains. The
best retailers in the world, he
says, maintain a freestanding
format because it allows them
to execute on all fronts: in-store
shopping; online purchase and
contact-free pick-up; micro-fulfillment; delivery windows; and,
efficient ingress and egress of
vehicular traffic.

" These are the qualities that
will enable brick-and-mortar
retailers to thrive, " he says,
adding that it will be critical for retailers to adapt to a
free-standing physical platform
in the 21st century.
" We're in a world where
change is dynamic and fast, and
experimentation is encouraged rather than discouraged,
with the status quo no longer
acceptable, " he says. If anything positive has come from
COVID-19, Agree believes
it's " the 10 years of innovation
and efficiency " that have been
driven in a period of months.
" The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of the

inevitable, and it will leave in its
wake a lot of small businesses
that didn't have the ability to
not only sustain, but to invest, "
Agree says. " Retailers that are
free-standing can morph and
change their prototypes for
varying customer demands.
And everyone who is not
changing, we consider dying. "

" TREMENDOUS
OPPORTUNITY " AHEAD
Looking ahead, investors can
expect Agree Realty to continue
to source, originate, and invest
in the highest-grade retailers
in the country, according to
its CEO. " We see tremendous
opportunity in the large and

highly fragmented segment of
retail net lease and we're well
positioned to take advantage of
the numerous opportunities we
see, " Agree says.
At the same time, Agree
Realty plans to continue
delivering double-digit returns
while maintaining its fortress
balance sheet. " We have been
thought leaders and ahead of
retail trends that we identified in our nascent days. We
intend to continue developing
relationships and executing on
transactions with retailers that
are positioned to succeed in a
post-pandemic, omni-channel
world, " Agree notes.
