Eugene W. Landy, President, commented on the results of fiscal year 2012, "We continued to successfully expand our portfolio through the pursuit of selective high quality acquisitions and by opportunistically accessing the public capital markets.  During 2012, the Company accomplished among the following:

  • Acquired 1.0 million square feet of high quality industrial space increasing gross leasable area by 13% and income from property operations by 17%
  • Re-leased over 1.5 million square feet 
  • Raised approximately $85 million in common and preferred equity capital
  • Entered into contracts to acquire 1.8 million square feet in new Class A build-to suits
  • Contracted to add approximately 200,000 square feet in building expansions."

Mr. Landy stated, "Our business model of investing in net-leased industrial properties on long-term leases to investment grade tenants continued to deliver solid performance despite weaknesses in the broader economy. During fiscal 2012, we successfully re-leased 11 of the 12 expiring leases as well as a building that was previously vacant, representing a total of 1.5 million square feet of new leases.  10 of these new leases totaling approximately 1.1 million square feet were renewals with existing tenants representing an overall 86% tenant retention rate. Our occupancy rate is currently 95%."

"In addition to the 1.0 million square feet representing $70.4 million in acquisitions in fiscal 2012, Monmouth has already added another 172,000 square feet in acquisitions since year end and has an acquisition pipeline of eight new Class A build-to-suit, industrial buildings totaling 1.8 million square feet that are currently being developed. The total purchase price for these eight properties is approximately $109.0 million." 

"We made significant progress in fiscal 2012 through a combination of opportunistic capital raises, including preferred and common equity that generated approximately $85 million in total proceeds. This includes $57.5 million in preferred equity that we raised this past June. We ended the year with net debt to total market capitalization at 28% and with $24.7 million in cash and cash equivalents reflecting yet to be spent proceeds from our recent preferred stock offering. Given our sizeable acquisition pipeline and our strong financial position, we are well positioned to continue to grow the Company going into 2013."

Notes:

(1)  Non-GAAP Information:  FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") as net income applicable to common shareholders, excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable assets, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization.   Adjusted FFO is defined as FFO plus acquisition costs.  FFO per common share is defined as FFO divided by weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.  FFO and Adjusted FFO per common share should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by real estate investment trusts (REITs).  FFO and Adjusted FFO per common share exclude historical cost depreciation as an expense and may facilitate the comparison of REITs which have different cost basis.  The items excluded from FFO and Adjusted FFO per common share are significant components in understanding the Company's financial performance.

FFO and Adjusted FFO per common share (A) do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by generally accepted accounting principles; (B) should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities; and (C) are not alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.  FFO and Adjusted FFO per common share, as calculated by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other REITs.

The Company's FFO and Adjusted FFO for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 is calculated as follows:
