Q4 2012 Results Taxable REIT Income and Core Income

Estimated taxable REIT income for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, was approximately $90.3 million. The weighted average additional paid-in capital for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, was $2.2 billion. The estimated taxable REIT income represents an annualized return on weighted average additional paid-in capital for the quarter of 16.2%. The Company distributes dividends based on its estimate of taxable earnings per common share, not based on earnings calculated in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  Taxable REIT income and GAAP earnings will differ primarily because of the non-taxable unrealized changes in the value of the Company's derivatives, which the company uses as hedges. These unrealized gains/losses are included in GAAP earnings, whereas unrealized valuation changes are not included in taxable income.
