PS Business Parks, Inc. Reports Results For The Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2013 And Acquisition Of A $14.8 Million Flex Park In Dallas, Texas

Property Operations

To evaluate the performance of the Company’s portfolio over comparable periods, management analyzes the operating performance of properties owned and operated throughout both periods (herein referred to as “Same Park”). The Same Park portfolio includes all operating properties owned or acquired prior to January 1, 2011. Operating properties that the Company acquired subsequent to January 1, 2011 are referred to as “Non-Same Park.” For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, the Same Park facilities constitute 21.4 million rentable square feet, representing 76.0% of the 28.2 million square feet in the Company’s portfolio as of June 30, 2013.

The following table presents the operating results of the Company’s properties for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 in addition to other income and expense items affecting income from continuing operations (unaudited, in thousands, except per square foot amounts):
