PS Business Parks, Inc. Reports Results For The Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2012

Total rental income, including the lease buyout income noted above, increased $34.4 million, or 15.4%, from $222.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 to $257.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 as a result of a $37.9 million increase in rental income from Non-Same Park facilities, which includes the 5.3 million square foot portfolio acquired in December 2011, partially offset by a $3.5 million decrease from the Same Park portfolio. Excluding the lease buyout income, rental income from the Same Park portfolio decreased $564,000 due to a decrease in rental rates, partially offset by an increase in occupancy rates. Net income allocable to common shareholders decreased $33.3 million, or 76.8%, from $43.4 million, or $1.75 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 to $10.0 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in net income allocable to common shareholders for the three and nine months was primarily due to the net impact of non-cash preferred equity transactions and increases in interest expense, depreciation and amortization and preferred equity distributions, partially offset by an increase in net operating income.

Preferred Equity Transactions

On September 14, 2012, the Company issued $230.0 million or 9.2 million depositary shares, each representing 1/1,000 of a share of the 5.75% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series U, at $25.00 per depositary share. The Company used the proceeds from this issuance to redeem, on October 9, 2012, $132.3 million, or 5,290,000 depositary shares, each representing 1/1,000 of a share of the 6.70% Cumulative Preferred Stock, Series P. The remaining net proceeds were used to reduce the Company’s unsecured debt.

In connection with the Series P redemption, the Company reported the excess of the redemption amount over the carrying amount of $3.8 million, representing the original issuance costs, as a reduction of net income allocable to common shareholders and unit holders for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.
