The Company paid approximately $109 million, including closing costs, for the 16 buildings. The second quarter's acquisitions increased the Company's square footage by 7% over the prior quarter. 

Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the Company acquired two buildings containing a total of 250,100 square feet located in two different states for approximately $10.8 million with a remaining weighted average lease term of approximately six years.

The Company also has entered into contracts to acquire three additional buildings for a combined purchase price of approximately $38.3 million, subject to various closing conditions.  These conditions have not yet been satisfied so there can be no assurance that these transactions will be consummated.

Leasing Activity and Occupancy

In the second quarter the Company signed renewals for 754,416 square feet.  The tenant retention rate for the leases expiring in the second quarter of 2013 was 51%, resulting in a year to date tenant retention rate of 72%.  The rental rates on the renewed leases expiring in the second quarter increased 1.4% on a cash basis and increased 5.9% on a GAAP basis. The Company also executed 411,683 square feet of new leases.  Tenant improvements and leasing commissions for leases completed in the second quarter were approximately $1.4 million or 5% of Cash NOI.

Occupancy for the Company's portfolio was 93.9% at the end of the second quarter 2013 compared to 95.4% at end of the first quarter 2013.  Year over year same store occupancy decreased from 95.0% to 91.7%.  The quarter to date same store portfolio is defined as those properties owned April 1, 2012 that were owned throughout 2012 and through the second quarter of 2013.  The occupancy decline for the quarter is principally the result of the previously disclosed 427,000 square foot move out in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin on May 31, 2013. There has been significant tenant interest in this building and we are in preliminary negotiations for a lease of the entire space. 

Key Financial Measures

Cash NOI, for the second quarter of 2013 was approximately $27.1 million, an increase of 59% compared to Cash NOI in the second quarter of 2012 of approximately $17.0 million.  Cash NOI after noncontrolling interest was approximately $23.5 million for the second quarter of 2013. 

Core FFO for the second quarter of 2013 was approximately $16.0 million, an increase of 83% over the second quarter of 2012 of approximately $8.8 million. Core FFO attributable to common stockholders was approximately $13.9 million or $0.33 per diluted share of common stock as compared to $0.32 per diluted share of common stock in the second quarter of 2012.  The per share growth rate was once again reduced as a result of the Company's de-levering from 35% debt to enterprise value at Q2 2012 to 29% this quarter end.

AFFO was approximately $15.1 million for the second quarter of 2013 compared to approximately $8.6 million for the second quarter of 2012, an increase of 76%. AFFO attributable to common stockholders was approximately $13.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.  Net Loss for the second quarter of 2013 was approximately $0.2 million.  Included in Net Loss was depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $16.4 million.

A reconciliation of Net Loss to Cash NOI, Adjusted EBITDA, Core FFO, FFO, and AFFO, all non-GAAP financial measures, appears at the end of this release.

The Company has included in a supplemental information package the results and operating statistics that reflect the activities of the Company for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  See below regarding information for the supplemental information package.

Financial Strength and Liquidity

As of quarter end, the Company's net debt to annualized adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (Adjusted EBITDA) was 4.6x, interest coverage based on Adjusted EBITDA was 5.1x, and the weighted average interest rate on the outstanding debt was 3.92%.  Adjusted EBITDA was calculated based on annualizing the Company's results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.  The Company's total debt to total enterprise value was 29% as of June 30, 2013. Enterprise value of $1.6 million is based on the June 28, 2013 closing share price of $19.95 times 49.1 million outstanding shares and units plus $139 million of preferred equity and total debt of $453 million.

As of quarter end, the Company had approximately $453 million of debt outstanding with an average term of 5.5 years.  This included $150 million drawn under the Company's five year unsecured term loan, which was fully drawn at June 30, 2013.  The interest rate on $100 million of this amount has been swapped at an all-in interest rate of 2.42%.  The outstanding debt balance also included $75 million drawn under the Company's $150 million seven year unsecured term loan, which is now swapped at an all-in interest rate of 3.71%. 

At quarter end, there was no outstanding balance, and $200 million of availability, under the Company's $200 million unsecured revolving credit facility.

Offerings

On April 16, 2013, the Company sold 2,800,000 shares of 6.625% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock, inclusive of 300,000 shares exercised under the underwriters' option, resulting in gross proceeds to the Company of $70 million, before underwriting discounts and offering expenses.  The Company used the net proceeds to fully repay the outstanding balance under the unsecured revolving credit facility and to fund acquisitions.

Under the "at the market" (ATM) stock offering program, the Company issued an aggregate of 10,000 shares of common stock during the last business day of the second quarter of 2013 receiving gross proceeds of approximately $0.2 million.  The ATM program continued for a limited time post quarter end.

The Company also issued $11.8 million of operating partnership units at a price of $21.23 per common unit in connection with the purchase of the property portfolio located in Illinois.

Departure of a Director

Pursuant to notice given on August 2, 2013, F. Alexander Fraser resigned as a director of the Company due to his desire to devote more of his time to his duties and responsibilities as a Managing Director at GI Partners, LLC. Mr. Fraser's resignation was effective August 2, 2013.

Benjamin S. Butcher, Chief Executive Officer, remarked, "On behalf of the Board, the other officers and myself, I'd like to thank Alexander for his contributions to the Company during the period prior to our IPO and over the past two years. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Net operating income (NOI) is defined as rental revenue, including reimbursements, less property expenses and real estate taxes, which excludes depreciation, amortization, general and administrative expenses, interest expense, interest income, gain on interest rate swaps, asset management fee income, property acquisition costs, offering costs, loss on impairment, gain on extinguishment of debt, gain on sales of real estate, and other expenses. The Company defines Cash NOI as NOI less straight-line rent adjustments and less intangible amortization in rental income. The Company considers NOI and Cash NOI to be appropriate supplemental performance measures because they reflect the operating performance of the Company's properties and exclude certain items that are not considered to be controllable in connection with the management of the property.  However, these measures should not be viewed as alternative measures of the Company's financial performance since they exclude expenses which could materially impact the Company's results of operations. Further, the Company's NOI and Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as they may use different methodologies for calculating NOI and Cash NOI.

The Company calculates FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate, real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and fair market value of debt adjustment) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs.  The Company also believes that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of REITs, FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare the Company's operating performance with that of other REITs.

The Company presents Core FFO and Adjusted FFO excluding property acquisition costs, gain on interest rate swaps, offering costs, gain on extinguishment of debt, and intangible amortization in rental income.  Adjusted FFO of the Company also excludes straight-line rent adjustments, non-cash portion of interest expense, non-cash compensation expense and adding recurring capital expenditures and lease renewal commissions and tenant improvements.  The Company believes that Core FFO and Adjusted FFO are useful supplemental measures regarding the Company's operating performance as they provide a more meaningful and consistent comparison of the Company's operating performance and allows investors to more easily compare the Company's operating results. 

However, because FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO exclude depreciation and amortization and capture neither the changes in the value of the Company's properties that result from use or market conditions, nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company's properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact the Company's results from operations, the utility of FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO as measures of the Company's performance is limited. Other equity REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition as the Company does, and, accordingly, the Company's FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs' FFO, Core FFO or Adjusted FFO.  FFO, Core FFO and Adjusted FFO should not be used as a measure of the Company's liquidity, and are not indicative of funds available for the Company's cash needs, including its ability to pay dividends.

The Company believes that EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are helpful to investors as supplemental measures of the operating performance of a real estate company because they are direct measures of the actual operating results of the Company's industrial properties. The Company also uses these measures in ratios to compare its performance to that of its industry peers.  The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA excluding property acquisition costs, gain on interest rate swaps, offering costs, loss on impairment, gain on extinguishment of debt, gain on sales of real estate, and intangible amortization in rental income.

In the measures above, the Company excludes certain nonrecurring items that the Company does not believe are reasonably likely to recur within two years.
