IIP generated total revenues of approximately $70.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to approximately $48.9 million for the same period in 2021, an increase of 44%. The increase was driven primarily by the acquisition and leasing of new properties, additional improvement allowances and construction funding at existing properties resulting in adjustments to base rent, and contractual rental escalations at certain properties.
