(1)       Funds from operations ("FFO") and FFO per share are operating performance measures adopted by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT"). NAREIT defines FFO as the most commonly accepted and reported measure of a REIT's operating performance equal to "net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization (including amortization of leasing commissions), and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures."

(2)       FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. FFO should not be considered an alternative to net income attributable to common stockholders as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

(3)       In the third quarter of 2015, the Company began including an add-back for leasing commission amortization in order to provide a better basis for comparing its results of operations with those of others in the industry, consistent with the NAREIT definition of FFO.   All periods presented have been adjusted.
