Omega Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results; Adjusted FFO Of $0.58 Per Share And $250 Million Of New Investments For The Fourth Quarter

The year-to-date increase in net income was primarily due to: (i) additional rental income and mortgage interest income associated with approximately $510 million of new investments made throughout 2012; (ii) $10.1 million in incremental gains on asset sales; (iii) $26.1 million net decrease in real estate impairments; and (iv) $6.4 million net decrease in provision for uncollectible accounts receivable. These increases to net income were partially offset by increased expenses primarily associated with the new investments, including: (i) $12.6 million in increased depreciation expense; (ii) $14.4 million in increased interest expense; and (iii) $2.0 million in incremental general and administrative expenses. In addition, interest refinancing costs increased $4.8 million over 2011. The $4.8 million increase in refinancing costs resulted from a December 2012 $2.5 million charge associated with the termination of the Company’s 2011 credit facility and a March 2012 $7.1 million charge associated with the tender and redemption of all of the Company’s outstanding $175 million of 7% Senior Notes due 2016. These two charges were partially offset by a June 2012 $1.7 million gain related to the write-off of the unamortized premium on four HUD mortgage loans the Company prepaid and an August 2011 $3.1 million write-off of deferred cost associated with the termination of the Company’s 2010 credit facility.
