Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Retail Properties of America, Inc. (the “Company”) is filing this Current Report on Form 8-K to provide certain information about the Company, as set forth in this Item 2.02 – “Results of Operations and Financial Condition.”

As of June 30, 2020, primarily due to the negative economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company expects to increase its allowance for doubtful accounts receivable as compared to March 31, 2020 by an aggregate of approximately $15.0 million to $20.0 million. The Company estimates that this increase will consist of an allowance against accounts receivable of approximately $12.0 million to $15.0 million and an allowance against straight-line rent receivables of approximately $3.0 million to $5.0 million, with a corresponding reduction in lease income. The foregoing estimates are preliminary, unaudited and based upon currently available information. Such estimates are subject to revision as a result of, among other things, the completion of the Company’s financial closing process for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, which may result in an adjustment different than this range, and are not intended to describe or represent all impacts on the Company’s financial position or results of operations or cash flows caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. For more information, see the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

The information in this Item 2.02 – “Results of Operations and Financial Condition” is being furnished. Such information shall not be deemed “filed” for any purpose, including for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section. The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act regardless of any general incorporation language in such filing.

Item 8.01 Other Events.
