Select Income REIT Announces 2012 Fourth Quarter And Year End Results

Select Income REIT (NYSE: SIR) today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012. SIR was formed on December 19, 2011 as a wholly owned subsidiary of CommonWealth REIT (NYSE: CWH), and SIR sold approximately 29.5% of its common shares in an initial public offering, or IPO, on March 12, 2012. Accordingly, SIR’s historical results of operations for the 2011 periods are not comparable to results reported for the current periods; similarly, SIR’s historical results for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 are not comparable to the results which may be expected in future periods.

(1) SIR calculates FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. FFO is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income, calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, as well as other adjustments currently not applicable to us. SIR’s calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT’s definition of FFO because SIR excludes acquisition related costs. SIR considers FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of operating performance for a REIT, along with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities. SIR believes that FFO and Normalized FFO provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate a comparison of its operating performance between periods. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by SIR’s Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to SIR’s shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain SIR’s status as a REIT, limitations in SIR’s revolving credit facility and term loan agreements, the availability of debt and equity capital to SIR, SIR’s expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance, and SIR’s expected needs and availability of cash to pay its obligations. FFO and Normalized FFO do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of SIR’s financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of SIR’s needs. SIR believes that FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate an understanding of SIR’s consolidated historical operating results. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in SIR’s Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than SIR does.
