Recent Investment and Sales Activities:

Since October 1, 2010, SNH has acquired 29 medical office buildings, or MOBs, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $499.2 million, excluding closing costs. SNH has also agreed to sell four senior living communities for an aggregate sale price of $18.8 million, excluding closing costs.

  • In October 2010, SNH acquired a MOB located in Conroe (Houston), TX with 58,605 square feet. This property is 100% leased to Montgomery County Management Company, LLC for approximately 13.8 years. The purchase price was $15.0 million, excluding closing costs.
  • In November 2010, we entered into a series of agreements to acquire 27 MOBs from CommonWealth REIT located in 12 states for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $470.0 million. The properties we agreed to acquire have a current average occupancy of 95%. Between November and December 31, 2010, we acquired 21 of these properties containing 2.1 million square feet for approximately $374.1 million, excluding closing costs. In January 2011, we acquired the remaining six properties containing 737,000 square feet for approximately $95.9 million, excluding closing costs.
  • In January 2011, we acquired a MOB located in Mendota Heights (Minneapolis), MN with 82,854 square feet. This property is 100% leased to WuXi AppTec for approximately 8.2 years. The purchase price was $14.2 million, excluding closing costs.
  • In November 2010, we agreed to sell three skilled nursing facilities in Georgia with an aggregate 329 licensed beds that are leased to Five Star Quality Care Inc., or Five Star, for an aggregate sales price of approximately $18.0 million, excluding closing costs, and we expect Five Star's annual rent payable to us to be decreased by approximately $1.8 million after the sale closes. We expect the sale of these properties to occur during the first quarter of 2011; however, the sale of these properties is contingent upon customary closing conditions and we can provide no assurance that we will sell these properties.
  • In January 2011, we agreed to sell one assisted living community in Pennsylvania with 70 licensed units that is leased to Five Star for a sales price of approximately $800,000, and we expect Five Star's annual rent to us to be decreased by approximately $72,000 after the sale closes. We expect the sale of this property to occur during the second quarter of 2011; however, the sale of this property is contingent upon customary closing conditions and we can provide no assurance that we will sell this property.

Recent Financing Activities:

In December 2010, we issued 14.4 million common shares in a public offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $281.9 million. We used the net proceeds from this offering to repay borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facility and for general business purposes, including funding in part the acquisitions described above.

In January 2011, we sold $250.0 million of 4.30% senior unsecured notes due 2016, raising net proceeds of approximately $245.4 million.

FFO per share $0.44   $0.41   $1.71   $1.70  
Distributions declared per share $0.37   $0.36   $1.46   $1.43  
 

(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) During the second quarter of 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 fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, we recognized an impairment of assets charge of $4.9 million related to two properties and $4.3 million related to three properties, respectively. During the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, we recognized an impairment of assets charge of $6.0 million related to seven properties and $15.5 million related to 11 properties, respectively.

(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. During the fourth quarters of 2010 and 2009, we recognized $10.3 million and $9.1 million of percentage rent for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.

(5) During the third quarter of 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. During the fourth quarter of 2009, we sold two skilled nursing facilities for $1.9 million and recognized a gain on sale of approximately $397.
