Normalized funds from operations, or Normalized FFO, for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 were $96.4 million, or $0.78 per share, compared to Normalized FFO for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 of $102.4 million, or $0.83 per share.

Net income available for common shareholders for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, was reduced by $2.9 million, or $0.02 per share, due to the liquidation preference for HPT’s preferred shares that it redeemed during that period exceeding the carrying value for those preferred shares and $1.1 million, or $0.01 per share, due to acquisition related costs.

The weighted average number of common shares outstanding was 123.5 million and 123.4 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

A reconciliation of net income available for common shareholders determined according to U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to funds from operations, or FFO, and Normalized FFO for the quarters ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 appears later in this press release.
