In order to evaluate the performance of the Company’s portfolio over comparable periods, management analyzes the operating performance of stabilized properties owned and operated throughout both periods (herein referred to as “Same Park”). Effective January 1, 2012, the Company revised its Same Park definition to include all operating properties owned or acquired prior to January 1, 2010. We believe that this will provide the most meaningful perspective on how our assets are performing period to period, while not inflating comparative growth results with the continued lease-up of recently acquired assets. Operating properties that the Company acquired subsequent to January 1, 2010 or those that are not deemed to be stabilized are referred to as “Non-Same Park.” For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Same Park facilities constitute 19.2 million rentable square feet, representing 70.7% of the 27.2 million square feet in the Company’s portfolio as of March 31, 2012. Acquired assets are generally considered stabilized when occupancy is within a range of comparable Company assets.
The following table presents the operating results of the Company’s properties for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 in addition to other income and expense items affecting income from continuing operations (unaudited, in thousands, except per square foot amounts):

Net operating income (“NOI”) is an important measurement in the commercial real estate industry for determining the value of the real estate generating the NOI. The Company’s calculation of NOI may not be comparable to those of other companies and should not be used as an alternative to measures of performance in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).
Same Park gross margin is computed by dividing Same Park NOI by Same Park rental income.
Same Park annualized realized rent per square foot represents the annualized Same Park rental income earned per occupied square foot.
