PS Business Parks, Inc. (NYSE:PSB) reported operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.
Funds from operations (“FFO”) were $42.0 million, or $1.22, as adjusted, per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014, an increase of $2.8 million, or 7.2%, from the three months ended March 31, 2013 of $39.1 million, or $1.23, as adjusted, per share. The increase in FFO was primarily the result of an increase in net operating income from the Non-Same Park portfolio. The decrease in adjusted FFO per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014 over the same period in 2013 was due to an increase in shares outstanding as a result of the November, 2013 common equity offering.
