Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend Of 65 Cents Per Common Share Up 5 Cents, Or 8%, Over First Quarter Of 2013

PASADENA, Calif., June 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. (NYSE: ARE) announced today that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of 65 cents per common share for the second quarter of 2013.  This reflects a quarterly cash dividend increase of 5 cents per common share, or approximately 8 percent, over the first quarter of 2013.  The dividend is payable on July 15, 2013, to shareholders of record on June 28, 2013. 

"We are pleased to announce an 8 percent increase in our quarterly cash dividend declared to common shareholders from 60 cents to 65 cents per common share for the second quarter of 2013.  The dividend increase will allow the Company to share its continued strong cash flows from operations with its common shareholders while also continuing to retain cash flows from operations for reinvestment.  Compared to a year ago, we have increased our quarterly cash dividend declared per common share by 14 cents, or approximately 27 percent.  Additionally, our funds from operations payout ratio (quarterly common stock dividend divided by quarterly funds from operations) of 55 percent as of March 31, 2013, is one of the lowest payout ratios in the REIT industry.  This payout ratio will provide additional opportunities to grow our quarterly cash dividend per common share," said Joel S. Marcus, Chief Executive Officer of Alexandria.

The Company announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of 43.75 cents per share for the second quarter of 2013 for its 7.00% Series D Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock. The dividend is payable on July 15, 2013, to preferred shareholders of record on June 28, 2013.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of 40.3125 cents per share for the second quarter of 2013 for its 6.45% Series E Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock. The dividend is payable on July 15, 2013, to preferred shareholders of record on June 28, 2013.
