2012 ADJUSTED FFO GUIDANCEThe Company revised its 2012 Adjusted FFO available to common stockholders to be between $2.09 and $2.12 per diluted share versus its previous range of $2.06 to $2.12 per share. The Company's Adjusted FFO guidance for 2012 includes the impact of approximately $150 million of projected new investments; however, it excludes the impact of gains and losses from the sale of assets, additional divestitures, certain revenue and expense items, interest refinancing expense, capital transactions and restricted stock amortization expense. A reconciliation of the Adjusted FFO guidance to the Company's projected GAAP earnings is provided on a schedule attached to this press release. The Company may, from time to time, update its publicly announced Adjusted FFO guidance, but it is not obligated to do so. The Company's Adjusted FFO guidance is based on a number of assumptions, which are subject to change and many of which are outside the control of the Company. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company's expectations may change. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the timing and completion of acquisitions, divestitures, capital and financing transactions, and variations in restricted stock amortization expense may cause actual results to vary materially from our current expectations. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve its projected results.
