PS Business Parks, Inc. Reports Results For The Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2012

Property Operations

In order to evaluate the performance of the Company’s portfolio over comparable periods, management analyzes the operating performance of 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 are referred to as “Non-Same Park.” For the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Same Park facilities constitute 19.2 million rentable square feet, representing 70.7% of the 27.1 million square feet in the Company’s portfolio as of June 30, 2012.

The following table presents the operating results of the Company’s properties for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 in addition to other income and expense items affecting income from continuing operations (unaudited, in thousands, except per square foot amounts):
