Net operating income (“NOI”) is an important measurement in the commercial real estate industry for determining the value of the real estate generating the NOI. The Company’s calculation of NOI may not be comparable to those of other companies and should not be used as an alternative to measures of performance in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

(2)

Represents a lease buyout payment received in the third quarter of 2011 associated with a 53,000 square foot lease in Maryland which terminated as of August 31, 2011.

(3)

Same Park gross margin is computed by dividing Same Park NOI by Same Park rental income.

(4)

Same Park annualized realized rent per square foot represents the annualized Same Park rental income earned per occupied square foot.
 

Total rental income, including the lease buyout income noted above, increased $10.6 million, or 13.8%, from $76.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011 to $87.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 primarily as a result of a $13.1 million increase in rental income from Non-Same Park facilities, which includes the 5.3 million square foot portfolio acquired in December 2011, partially offset by a $2.6 million decrease from the Same Park portfolio. Excluding the lease buyout income, rental income from the Same Park portfolio increased $303,000 due to an increase in occupancy rates, partially offset by a decrease in rental rates. Net income allocable to common shareholders decreased $10.3 million, or 66.5%, from $15.4 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2011 to $5.2 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2012.
