Total revenue during the quarter increased 75.7% to $37.1 million from $21.1 million for the same quarter a year ago. The increase in total revenue was primarily attributable to an $11.5 million increase in rental revenue to $26.4 million, a $4.3 million increase in tenant recoveries to $6.3 million, which was partially offset by a decrease of $0.9 million in other property-related revenue to $2.5 million. The increase in rental revenue and tenant recoveries from a year ago was largely the result of rental revenue from office properties acquired during the fourth quarter of 2010 and third and fourth quarters of 2011. The decrease in other property-related revenue was the result of slower production activity at the Company’s Sunset Gower property associated with lower occupancy at that property compared to the same quarter a year ago.
