At December 31, 2012, the Company had total real estate and related investments of approximately $2.1 billion comprised of 82 healthcare properties in 25 states leased to 22 hospital operating companies. Based on this portfolio, continued double-digit yields on anticipated acquisitions of $400 million in 2013 and current capital markets conditions, the Company has increased its estimate of 2013 Normalized FFO per share to $1.10, which would represent an increase of 22% over the impressive 2012 results. “Because we are able to invest in hospital real estate that generates these high yields, every dollar invested is immediately accretive to 2013’s per share FFO and dividend coverage,” said Aldag.
