Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, the Company acquired one building containing 215,900 square feet located in Orlando, Florida for approximately $8.1 million.

The Company also has entered into contracts to acquire four additional buildings for a combined purchase price of approximately $40 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 third quarter the Company signed 148,852 square feet of new and expansion leases and 320,245 square feet of renewals.  Tenant improvements and leasing commissions for leases signed in the third quarter were approximately $1.3 million or 4.4% of Cash NOI.

Five leases consisting of 235,112 square feet expired in the third quarter of 2013. The tenant retention rate for these leases was 29%.  Additionally, there was one month to month lease containing 283,000 square feet which expired in the third quarter resulting in an aggregate retention rate for the third quarter of 13% and a year to date retention rate of 61%. The rental rate on the renewed leases expiring in the third quarter increased 1.3% on a cash basis and increased 9.0% on a GAAP basis.  Of the total 449,812 square feet that did not renew in the third quarter, 220,182 square feet was re-leased the next business day.

Occupancy for the Company's portfolio was 94.0% at the end of the third quarter 2013 compared to 93.9% at end of the second quarter 2013.  Year over year same store occupancy decreased from 95.6% to 92.5%.  The quarter to date same store portfolio is defined as those properties owned July 1, 2012 that were owned throughout 2012 and through the third quarter of 2013.  The same store 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. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company signed a ten year lease for the entire space.

Key Financial Measures

Cash NOI, for the third quarter of 2013 was approximately $29.3 million, an increase of 53% compared to Cash NOI in the third quarter of 2012 of approximately $19.2 million.  Cash NOI after noncontrolling interest was approximately $25.2 million for the third quarter of 2013. 

Core FFO for the third quarter of 2013 was approximately $17.5 million, an increase of 60% over the third quarter of 2012 of approximately $10.9 million. Core FFO attributable to common stockholders was approximately $15.1 million or $0.35 per diluted share of common stock as compared to $0.29 per diluted share of common stock in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 21%.

AFFO was approximately $17.6 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to approximately $11.0 million for the third quarter of 2012, an increase of 60%. AFFO attributable to common stockholders was approximately $15.2 million in the third quarter of 2013.  Net Income for the third quarter of 2013 was approximately $0.3 million.  Net Income was reduced by depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $17.5 million.

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

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 5.0x, and the weighted average interest rate on the outstanding debt was 3.98%.  Adjusted EBITDA was calculated based on annualizing the Company's results for the three months ended September 30, 2013.  The Company's total debt to total enterprise value was 29.9% as of September 30, 2013. Enterprise value of $1.7 billion is based on the September 30, 2013 closing share price of $20.12 times 51 million outstanding shares and units plus $139 million of preferred equity and total debt of $497 million.

As of quarter end, the Company had approximately $497 million of debt outstanding with an average term of 5.2 years.  This included $150 million under the Company's five year unsecured term loan, which was fully drawn at September 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 $100 million drawn under the Company's $150 million seven year unsecured term loan, which is now swapped at an all-in interest rate of 3.75%. 

At quarter end, there was a $20 million outstanding balance and $180 million of availability under the Company's $200 million unsecured revolving credit facility and a $100 million outstanding balance and $50 million of availability under the Company's seven year unsecured term loan.

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, loss 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, loss on extinguishment of debt, lease termination income, 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, loss 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.
