The Company reported net income attributable to common shareholders of $42.9 million or $0.35 per diluted share (hereinafter “per share”) for the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to $22.2 million or $0.18 per share for the same period in 2011. For the full year 2012, the Company reported net income of $109.2 million or $0.90 per share compared to a net loss of $19.9 million or ($0.17) per share for the full year 2011. Included in net income for both 2012 and 2011 were gains on the sale of properties and partnership interests of $0.69 and $0.10 per share, respectively. Included in 2012 and 2011 were non-cash impairments of $0.29 and $0.65, respectively.

For the current quarter, Reported FFO was $57.0 million or $0.46 per share compared to $58.1 million or $0.48 per share for 2011. Reported FFO for 2011 excludes impairments of operating properties of $0.02 per share. Recurring FFO for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $0.47 per share or $58.6 million. For the same quarter last year, Recurring FFO was $0.48 per share or $58.5 million. This decrease in Recurring FFO per share over the prior year was primarily due to the sale of $706.7 million of non-core assets during the year, offset by the Company’s acquisition and new development programs, increased operating income from the existing portfolio and reduced interest expense due to favorable refinancing transactions.
