PS Business Parks, Inc. (NYSE:PSB) reported operating results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Funds from operations (“FFO”) allocable to common and dilutive shares before non-cash adjustments were $37.1 million, or $1.17 per common and dilutive share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 7.3% per share increase from the three months ended March 31, 2011 of $35.0 million, or $1.09 per common and dilutive share before non-cash adjustments. The increase in FFO per common and dilutive share before non-cash adjustments for the three months ended March 31, 2012 over the same period in 2011 was primarily due to the increase in net operating income from Non-Same Park facilities partially offset by increases in interest expense, preferred equity distributions and general and administrative expenses.

FFO allocable to common and dilutive shares was $31.9 million, or $1.01 per common and dilutive share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, a 23.5% per share decrease from the three months ended March 31, 2011 of $42.4 million, or $1.32 per common and dilutive share.
