Year 2010 and Q4 2010 Results

Taxable REIT Income and Core Income

Estimated taxable REIT income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was approximately $9.2 million, of which $8.8 million was paid out as of the applicable record dates. An additional $0.4 million of 2010 taxable income was paid on January 28, 2011. The average equity for the year ended December 31, 2010, was $43.6 million. The estimated annual taxable REIT income represents an annualized return on average equity for the year of 21.1%. The amount paid out as dividends represents an annualized return on average equity for the year of 21.1%. The Company distributes dividends based on its estimate of taxable earnings per common share, not GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) earnings. Taxable REIT income and GAAP earnings will differ primarily because the non-taxable unrealized changes in the value of the Company's interest rate hedges are included in GAAP earnings whereas, because they are not realized, valuation changes are not included in taxable income.
