NEWTON, Mass., Aug 02, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Senior Housing Properties Trust (NYSE: SNH) today announced its financial results for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010.

Results for the quarter ended June 30, 2010:

Funds from operations, or FFO, for the quarter ended June 30, 2010 was $53.3 million, or $0.42 per share. This compares to FFO for the quarter ended June 30, 2009 of $52.8 million, or $0.44 per share.

Net income was $24.6 million, or $0.19 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, compared to net income of $30.5 million, or $0.25 per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

Recent Activities:

On July 29, 2010, Moody's Investors Service upgraded our senior unsecured bonds to an investment grade rating of Baa3 from Ba1.

In April 2010, we sold $200.0 million of senior unsecured notes. The notes require interest at a fixed rate of 6.75% per annum and are due in 2020. Net proceeds from the sale of the notes, after underwriting discounts and other expenses, were approximately $195.0 million. Interest on the notes is payable semi-annually in arrears. No principal payments are due until maturity. We used a portion of the net proceeds of this offering to repay $58.0 million in borrowings under our revolving credit facility, to fund the redemption of our $97.5 million outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2015 and for general business purposes, including funding the acquisitions described below.

As described above, in April 2010, we called all $97.5 million of our outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2015 for redemption on May 17, 2010. As a result of this redemption, we recorded a loss on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $2.4 million consisting of the debt prepayment premium of approximately $1.3 million and the write off of unamortized deferred financing fees of approximately $1.1 million.

In April 2010, we acquired a medical office building located in Colorado with 14,695 rentable square feet for approximately $4.5 million, excluding closing costs. We funded this acquisition using cash on hand and by assuming a mortgage loan for $2.5 million at an interest rate of 6.73% per annum.

In June 2010, we acquired a medical office building located in Texas with approximately 55,800 rentable square feet for approximately $12.2 million, excluding closing costs. We funded this acquisition using cash on hand.

(1) We compute FFO as shown above. Our calculation of FFO differs from the definition of FFO by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, because we include deferred percentage rent, if any, exclude loss on early extinguishment of debt, if any, exclude impairment of assets, if any, and exclude acquisition costs, if any, in the determination of FFO. We consider FFO to be an appropriate measure of performance for a REIT, along with net income and cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities. We believe that FFO provides useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, acquisition costs and gain or loss on sale of properties, FFO can facilitate a comparison of operating performances by a REIT over time and among REITs. FFO does not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP, and should not be considered an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities as a measure of financial performance or liquidity. Also, other REITs may calculate FFO differently than we do.

(2) In May 2010, we redeemed all $97.5 million of our outstanding 7.875% senior notes due 2015. As a result of this redemption, we recorded a loss on early extinguishment of debt of $2.4 million consisting of the debt prepayment premium of approximately $1.3 million and the write off of unamortized deferred financing fees and debt discount of approximately $1.1 million.

(3) During the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, we recognized an impairment of assets charge of approximately $1.1 million related to five properties.

(4) Our percentage rents are generally calculated on an annual basis. We recognize percentage rental income received during the first, second and third quarters in the fourth quarter when all contingencies related to percentage rents are satisfied. Although recognition of this revenue is deferred until the fourth quarter, our FFO calculation for the first three quarters includes estimated amounts of deferred percentage rents with respect to those periods. The fourth quarter calculation of FFO excludes the amounts recognized during the first three quarters.
