Recent Investment and Sales Activities:

Since July 1, 2011, we have acquired, or we currently have under agreements to acquire, 33 properties for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $801.0 million, including the assumption of approximately $207.5 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs:

  • In July and August 2011, we acquired four senior living communities located in Florida with an aggregate 473 units (97 independent living units, 294 assisted living units, 63 Alzheimer's care units and 19 skilled nursing beds) for approximately $61.8 million, including the assumption of approximately $25.2 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. These acquisitions were pursuant to our previously announced March 2011 agreement to acquire 20 senior living communities for approximately $304.0 million, including $78.2 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. To date, we have closed on the acquisition of 18 of these communities for $258.4 million, including the assumption of $73.3 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. Five Star Quality Care, Inc., or Five Star, manages 13 of these communities and leases five of these 18 communities under long term agreements. The acquisition of two of these 20 communities for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $45.3 million, including the assumption of approximately $4.9 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs, remain pending; the closings of these two communities are contingent upon various closing conditions; accordingly, we can provide no assurance that we will purchase these communities.
  • In July 2011, we acquired a property used for medical related services, manufacturing or research activities, or an MOB, located in Alachua (Gainesville), FL with 32,476 square feet for $5.2 million, including the assumption of approximately $3.7 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. This property is the last of a four biotechnology buildings campus acquisition announced at the end of the second quarter 2011.
  • In September 2011, we acquired 13 MOBs located in eight states with 1.3 million square feet from CommonWealth REIT for an aggregate purchase price of $167.0 million, excluding closing costs. These properties are 95% leased to 105 tenants with a weighted average remaining lease term of approximately 5.0 years.
  • In July 2011, we agreed to acquire nine senior living communities located in six states with an aggregate 2,226 living units (1,708 independent living units, 471 assisted living units and 47 Alzheimer's care units) for approximately $478.0 million, including the assumption of approximately $164.0 million of mortgage debt and excluding closing costs. We expect these communities to be managed by Five Star under long term agreements. The purchases of these communities are subject to various conditions, including regulatory and other third party approvals. We currently expect to acquire the majority of these communities in the fourth quarter of 2011 and the remaining communities are expected to be acquired in 2012; however, we can provide no assurance that we will purchase all or any of these properties.
  • In May, July and September 2011, we entered three separate agreements to acquire one senior living community and three MOBs for an aggregate purchase price of $43.7 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 three MOBs are located in Indiana and Virginia and include an aggregate of 138,606 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.

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 September 2011, Five Star completed the acquisition of these communities. As of September 30, 2011, $48.0 million in aggregate principal amount was outstanding and no additional borrowings were available 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 July1, 2012 and bears interest at a rate equal to the annual rate of interest applicable to our borrowings under our revolving credit facility, plus 1%. We recognized interest income from this Bridge Loan of $187 and $245, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, which is included in interest and other income in our condensed consolidated statements of income.

Recent Financing Activities:

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 acquisitions described above.

In October 2011, we issued 9.2 million common shares in a public offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $184.7 million. We used the net proceeds of this offering to repay borrowings outstanding on our revolving credit facility.

Normalized FFO $ 65,368 $ 53,460 $ 190,092 $ 161,604
Weighted average shares outstanding 153,385 127,423 145,745 127,404
FFO per share $ 0.38 $ 0.40 $ 1.19 $ 1.17
Normalized FFO per share $ 0.43 $ 0.42 $ 1.30 $ 1.27
Distributions declared per share $ 0.38 $ 0.37 $ 1.12 $ 1.09

(1) We compute FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. 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 provide 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. 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 this data may facilitate an 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 Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income. 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.
