Recent Investment and Sales Activities:

Since April 1, 2011, we have acquired, or we currently have under agreements to acquire, 29 properties for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $360.9 million, including the assumption of approximately $91.8 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs:

  • In March 2011, we agreed to acquire 20 senior living communities located in five states with an aggregate 2,111 living units (814 independent living units, 939 assisted living units, 311 Alzheimer's care units and 47 skilled nursing beds) for approximately $304.0 million, excluding closing costs. In June 2011, we acquired 14 of these communities for approximately $196.6 million, excluding closing costs, and in July 2011, we acquired three of these communities for approximately $44.7 million, excluding closing costs. We funded these acquisitions using cash on hand, proceeds from an equity offering, borrowings under our revolving credit facility and by assuming approximately $48.1 million of mortgage loans in June 2011 and $12.8 million of mortgage loans in July 2011. Five Star Quality Care, Inc., or Five Star, has agreed to manage 15 of these 20 communities and to lease five of these communities under long term contracts. We refer to the 15 communities as the Managed Communities and the other five communities as the Leased Communities. Twelve of the 17 communities acquired in June and July 2011 are Managed Communities and the other five communities acquired in June and July 2011 are Leased Communities. The closing of the remaining three Managed Communities are contingent upon customary closing conditions; accordingly, we can provide no assurance that we will purchase these properties.
  • In April 2011, we agreed to acquire four medical office buildings, or MOBs, located in Alachua (Gainesville), FL with a total of 157,076 square feet for an aggregate purchase price of $19.8 million, including the assumption of approximately $3.7 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. These properties are 89% leased to 14 tenants for approximately 2.8 years. In June 2011, we acquired three of these properties for $14.6 million, excluding closing costs. In July 2011, we acquired the one remaining property for $5.2 million, including the assumption of approximately $3.7 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs.
  • In May 2011, we acquired one senior living community located in Rockford (Chicago area), IL with 73 living units for approximately $7.5 million, excluding closing costs. We leased this property to Five Star for initial rent of approximately $608,000 per year. Percentage rent, based on increases in gross revenues at this property, will commence in 2013.
  • In May 2011, we acquired an MOB located in Shoreview (St. Paul), MN with 49,809 square feet. This property is 100% leased to four tenants for approximately 7.7 years. The purchase price was $7.2 million, excluding closing costs.
  • In May and July 2011, we entered two separate agreements to acquire one senior living community and two MOBs for an aggregate purchase price of $22.7 million, including the assumption of approximately $9.7 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. The senior living community is located in California and includes 57 assisted living units, and the two MOBs are located in Virginia and include an aggregate of 45,578 square feet. The closings of these acquisitions are contingent upon completion of our diligence and other customary closing conditions; accordingly, we can provide no assurance that we will purchase these properties.

During the second quarter of 2011, we sold seven properties, including four skilled nursing facilities with 485 beds, two MOBs with an aggregate of 12,578 square feet and one former assisted living community which is being converted to another use, for combined sales prices totaling approximately $39.5 million, excluding closing costs. We recognized a net gain on sale of these properties of approximately $21.3 million.

In May 2011, we and Five Star entered into a loan agreement under which we agreed to lend Five Star up to $80.0 million, or the Bridge Loan, to fund Five Star's purchase of six senior living communities. In June 2011, Five Star acquired two of these senior living communities and, in connection with that acquisition, borrowed $41.0 million under the Bridge Loan; and Five Star subsequently repaid $32.0 million of this advance in June 2011. As of June 30, 2011, there was $9.0 million outstanding and $39.0 million available to borrow under this Bridge Loan. In July 2011, Five Star acquired one more of these senior living communities, and, in connection with that acquisition, borrowed $15.0 million under the Bridge Loan. As of July 28, 2011, there is $24.0 million outstanding and $24.0 million available to borrow under this Bridge Loan. The Bridge Loan is secured by mortgages on three of the senior living communities that Five Star acquired and on four other senior living communities owned by Five Star. The Bridge Loan matures on July 1, 2012 and bears interest at a rate equal to the annual rates of interest applicable to our borrowings under our revolving credit facility, plus 1%. We recognized interest income from this Bridge Loan of $58,000 in the three months ended June 30, 2011, which is included in interest and other income in our condensed consolidated statements of income.

In June 2011, we acquired 1.0 million shares of Five Star common stock in Five Star's public offering of 11.5 million shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $5.0 million.

Recent Financing Activities:

In June 2011, we entered into a new $750.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility that we use for acquisitions, working capital and general business purposes. The new facility replaces our previous $550.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility, which had a maturity date of December 31, 2011. The maturity date of the new facility is June 24, 2015 and includes an option for us to extend the facility for one year to June 24, 2016. Interest paid under the new facility is set at LIBOR plus 160 basis points, subject to adjustments based on our credit ratings.

In July 2011, we issued 11.5 million common shares in a public offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $247.5 million. We used the net proceeds of this offering to repay borrowings outstanding on our revolving credit facility and for general business purposes, including the partial funding of the July 2011 acquisitions described above.

Weighted average shares outstanding   141,869     127,408   141,862     127,394
 
FFO per share $ 0.40   $ 0.37 $ 0.81   $ 0.78
Normalized FFO per share $ 0.44   $ 0.42 $ 0.88   $ 0.85
Distributions declared per share $ 0.37   $ 0.36 $ 0.74   $ 0.72
(1)   We compute FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. These measures do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP as indicators of our financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of our needs. We believe that in order to facilitate a clearer understanding of our consolidated historical operating results, these measures should be considered in conjunction with net income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in our Consolidated Statement of Income. FFO is computed on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income, computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gain or loss on sale of properties, plus real estate depreciation and amortization. Our calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO because we include percentage rent and exclude loss on early extinguishment of debt, impairment of assets and acquisition related costs. We consider FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of performance for a REIT, along with net income and cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities. We believe that FFO and Normalized FFO provides useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO can facilitate a comparison of operating performances between periods. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by our Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain our status as a REIT, limitations in our revolving credit facility and public debt covenants, the availability of debt and equity capital to us and our expectation of our future capital requirements and operating performance. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than we do.
 
(2) Our percentage rents are generally determined on an annual basis. We defer recognition of percentage rental income we receive during the first, second and third quarters until the fourth quarter when all contingencies related to percentage rents are satisfied. Although recognition of this revenue is deferred until the fourth quarter, our Normalized FFO calculation for the first three quarters includes estimated amounts of percentage rents with respect to those periods. The fourth quarter calculation of Normalized FFO excludes percentage rents we presented for the first three quarters.
