Distributions declared per share $ 0.37 $ 0.36 $ 1.09 $ 1.07

(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 related 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 related 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 nine months ended September 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.

(5) In August 2010, we sold four skilled nursing facilities located in Nebraska with an aggregate 196 licensed beds for $1.5 million and recognized a gain on sale of approximately $109,000.
