Medical Properties Trust, Inc. Reports Strong Growth During Third Quarter

MPT also recently executed a letter of intent with First Choice ER, LLC, to provide sale / leaseback financing for up to 25 freestanding emergency room facilities for an aggregate investment of $100 million. The First Choice system is a leader in the rapidly growing field of emergency services, and staffs all of its free standing emergency rooms with board certified emergency physicians. MPT expects all of the facilities, which are targeted for high traffic retail locations, to be under construction by the second quarter of 2014.

During and subsequent to the 2012 third quarter, the Company sold two post acute care hospitals in Colorado and Massachusetts for an aggregate $42 million cash sales price. A gain of $8.4 million gain was recognized in the third quarter, and a non-cash charge of $1.6 million was recorded for accrued straight line rent. In the fourth quarter, the Company expects to report a gain of approximately $7.0 million for the sale of the Massachusetts property and a charge for accrued straight line rent of $4.1 million. At the $42 million combined sales price, the transaction delivers a capitalization rate of 260 basis points lower than the current annual base lease rate and the sales prices was 27% greater than MPT’s original cost. The Company believes that this capitalization rate compression for two of its older properties is a good benchmark for estimating the overall asset value of its portfolio.

At September 30, 2012, the Company had total real estate and related investments of approximately $2.1 billion comprised of 79 healthcare properties in 24 states leased or loaned to 21 hospital operating companies.

Based on the Company’s asset portfolio and capitalization as of September 30, 2012, and adjusting for the sale of the Massachusetts facility as well as the placement into service of the Emerus emergency hospitals, the Company is increasing its expectation for Normalized FFO to $0.90 per diluted share for calendar year 2012.
