Revenue

Consolidated revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 91% to $250.3 million, as compared to $131.4 million for the same quarter in 2012.

Revenue for the Real Estate Investment segment for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 increased 28% to $167.6 million, as compared to $131.4 million for the same quarter in 2012. This increase was primarily due to a $1.0 billion increase in the average gross real estate assets net of gross intangible lease liabilities we owned, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to the three months ended June 30, 2012. In addition, "same store" base rental revenue increased by 1.1% as compared to the year-ago quarter.

Certain statements in this press release may be considered forward-looking statements that reflect the current views of Cole Real Estate Investments and Cole's management with respect to future events. Forward-looking statements about Cole's plans, strategies and prospects are based on current information, estimates and projections; they are subject to risks and uncertainties, as well as known and unknown risks, including those included in Cole's reports filed with the SEC, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

FFO and AFFO

Funds From Operations ("FFO") is a non-GAAP financial performance measure defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") and widely recognized by investors and analysts as one measure of operating performance of a real estate company. The FFO calculation excludes items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, gains and losses on the sale of depreciable real estate and impairments of depreciable real estate. Depreciation and amortization as applied in accordance with GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, it is management's view, and the Company believes the view of many industry investors and analysts, that the presentation of operating results for real estate companies by using the historical cost accounting method alone is insufficient. In addition, FFO excludes gains and losses from the sale of depreciable real estate and impairment charges on depreciable real estate, which the company believes provides management and investors with a helpful additional measure of the performance of its real estate portfolio, as it allows for comparisons, year to year, that reflect the impact on operations from trends in items such as occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, general and administrative expenses, and interest costs. Cole computes FFO in accordance with NAREIT's definition.

In addition to FFO, the company uses Adjusted Funds From Operations ("AFFO") as a non-GAAP supplemental financial performance measure to evaluate the operating performance of its real estate portfolio. AFFO, as defined by the Company, excludes from FFO merger, acquisition, and listing related costs, amortization and write off of deferred financing costs, straight-line rent adjustments, above and below market lease intangibles amortization, realized loss on derivatives and debt prepayment fees, gain on sale of marketable securities, other amortization or accretion, other gains, adjustments for discontinued operations and our proportionate share of adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures, all of which are required to be expensed or recorded as additions to revenue or other income in accordance with GAAP. In evaluating the performance of Cole's portfolio over time, management employs business models and analyses that differentiate the costs to acquire investments from the investments' revenues and expenses. Management believes that excluding the items noted above from AFFO provides investors with supplemental performance information that is consistent with the performance models and analysis used by management, and provides investors a view of the performance of the Company's portfolio over time, including after the Company ceases to acquire properties on a frequent and regular basis. AFFO also allows for a comparison of the performance of Cole's portfolio with other REITs that are not currently engaging in acquisitions and mergers, as well as a comparison of its performance with that of other REITs, as AFFO, or an equivalent measure, is routinely reported by REITs, and management believes often used by analysts and investors for comparison purposes.

For all of these reasons, we believe FFO and AFFO, in addition to net income and cash flows from operating activities, as defined by GAAP, are helpful supplemental performance measures and useful in understanding the various ways in which Cole's management evaluates the performance of its real estate portfolio over time. However, not all REITs calculate FFO and AFFO the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO and AFFO should not be considered as alternatives to net income or to cash flows from operating activities, and are not intended to be used as a liquidity measure indicative of cash flow available to fund the Company's cash needs.

EBITDA and Normalized EBITDA

Normalized EBITDA as disclosed represents EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, modified to include other adjustments to GAAP net income for merger, acquisition, and listing related expenses which are considered non-recurring and gain/losses in real estate and derivatives which are not considered fundamental attributes of our business plans and do not affect our overall long-term operating performance. We exclude these items from Normalized EBITDA as they are not the primary drivers in our decision making process. In addition, our assessment of our operations is focused on long-term sustainability and not on such non-cash items, which may cause short term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on cash flows. We believe that Normalized EBITDA is a useful supplemental measure to investors and analysts for assessing the performance of our business segments, although it does not represent net income that is computed in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, Normalized EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income or as an indicator of our financial performance. We use Normalized EBITDA as one measure of our operating performance when we formulate corporate goals and evaluate the effectiveness of our strategies. Normalized EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Investment Grade Tenancy

Investment grade tenancy includes credit ratings based on annualized rental revenue from tenants with credit ratings of BBB- or higher. Tenant credit rating may reflect the credit rating of the parent company or a guarantor. Credit ratings exclude unconsolidated joint ventures, CMBS, and Secured notes receivable. 42% of Cole's annual rent is derived from tenants rated investment grade and another 13% from tenants with an implied rating of investment grade. Moody's Credit Edge was used to determine implied credit rating for public non-rated tenants. Moody's KMV was used to determine implied credit rating for private non-rated tenants. Implied credit rating data is as of July 29, 2013.

(1) Primarily consists of interest expense.



(2) While most of the business activities of the Company's Private Capital Management segment are conducted through a subsidiary of the Company that is a taxable REIT subsidiary ("TRS"), revenues and expenses recorded in the TRS for tax purposes are not the same as those included in the Private Capital Management segment in accordance with GAAP. In future periods, we expect to recognize an income tax expense, not a benefit from income taxes.
