Litigation Provision

In the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, we accrued $1.8 million relating to a litigation charge.  In the normal course of business, the design-build and development segment is subject to claims, lawsuits, and legal proceedings. While it is not possible to ascertain with certainty the ultimate outcome of such matters, in management's opinion, the liabilities, if any, in excess of amounts provided or covered by insurance, have a maximum reasonable possible loss of approximately $3.1 million.  We have evaluated exposures related to these matters and have accrued a total reserve of $3.1 million as of June 30, 2011, the above referenced $1.8 million being recorded in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

Property Acquisitions

In June 2011, we acquired two buildings totaling approximately 159,000 net rentable square feet for a total approximate investment of $34.8 million.  St. Elizabeth Covington Medical Center, located in Covington, Kentucky, is located on campus with the St. Elizabeth Healthcare hospital system and represents the strengthening of that client relationship, created with our January 2011 acquisition.  Doylestown Health & Wellness Center, located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, is located on campus with Doylestown Hospital and represents a new client relationship.

Design-Build Contracts

During the quarter, we signed three new design-build contracts with aggregate design-build contract value of $8.0 million.  Our contract pipeline increased from $104.1 million at the end of the first quarter to $129.5 million at the end of the second quarter.  Our contract pipeline is the estimated dollar value of future design-build revenues from Project Design Agreements ("PDAs") that are currently either in project analysis or design development.

Capital Transactions

On August 2nd, we closed on an $80.8 million term loan facility and used the proceeds to refinance $58.6 million of certain mortgages that mature in 2011 and 2012 and to pay down $22.2 million of our secured revolving credit facility.  The facility is for a three year term with one, one-year extension option and contains an accordion feature to expand the facility to a total of $130.8 million.  Covenants for the facility are substantially consistent with those for our $200 million secured revolving credit facility with the addition of a debt service coverage ratio measured based on net operating income attributable to the underlying property.  Repayment is interest only based on our overall leverage ranging from LIBOR plus 3.25% to LIBOR plus 4.00%.  We expect the initial spread over LIBOR to be 3.50%.  Initial security for the facility is a pledge of our ownership interests in our subsidiaries that own the underlying properties; provided however, that we would be required to deliver mortgages over the underlying properties if we exceed a specified leverage ratio or fail to meet a specified fixed charge ratio.

Dividends

On June 10, 2011, we announced that our Board of Directors had declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share and OP Unit that was paid in cash on July 20, 2011 to holders of record on June 24, 2011.  The $5.1 million dividend covered our second quarter of 2011.

On August 4, 2011, we announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.53125 per share on our Series A preferred shares for the period June 1, 2011 to August 31, 2011.  The dividend will be paid on September 1, 2011, to holders of record on August 18, 2011.  

Outlook

We revised our annual FFOM guidance in the second quarter of 2011 to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.33 per share and operating partnership unit, excluding the litigation charge, for the year ending December 31, 2011.  Our guidance assumes the following: (i) acquisitions of $41.0 million to $60.0 million; (ii) no dispositions; (iii) developments of $40.0 million to $45.0 million; (iv) third party design-build revenue of $80.0 million to $95.0 million; (v) design-build gross margins of 12.0% to 14.0%; and (vi) corporate general and administrative expenses of $9.5 million to $10.5 million.  Our guidance excludes any additional capital transaction or impairments.

A reconciliation of the range of projected net income (loss) to projected FFO and FFOM for the year ending December 31, 2011 is set forth below:

Supplemental operating and financial data are available in the Investor Relations section of our Web site at www.cogdell.com.  

FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by the real estate industry to measure the operating performance of real estate companies.  FFOM adds back to traditionally defined FFO non-cash amortization of non-real estate related intangible assets associated with purchase accounting.  We present FFO and FFOM because we consider them important supplemental measures of operational performance.  We believe FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results.  We believe that FFOM allows securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate current period results to results prior to the acquisition of MEA Holdings, Inc.  FFO and FFOM are intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time.  Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions.  Because FFO and FFOM excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, they provide performance measures that, when compared year over year, reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from net income.  We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of NAREIT in its March 1995 White Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002), which may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO and FFOM utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.  We adjust the NAREIT definition to add back noncontrolling interests in consolidated real estate partnerships before real estate related depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related expenses, and deduct dividends on preferred stock.  Further, FFO and FFOM do not represent amounts available for management's discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties.  FFO and FFOM should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our performance, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.  A reconciliation from GAAP net loss to FFO and FFOM is included as an attachment to this press release.

(1)  FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by the real estate industry to measure the operating performance of real estate companies.  FFOM adds back to traditionally defined FFO non-cash amortization of non-real estate related intangible assets associated with purchase accounting.  We present FFO and FFOM because we consider them important supplemental measures of operational performance.  We believe FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results.  We believe that FFOM allows securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate current period results to results prior to the acquisition of MEA Holdings, Inc.  FFO and FFOM are intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time.  Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions.  Because FFO and FFOM excludes depreciation and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from property dispositions and extraordinary items, they provide performance measures that, when compared year over year, reflect the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities and interest costs, providing a perspective not immediately apparent from net income.  We compute FFO in accordance with standards established by the Board of Governors of NAREIT in its March 1995 White Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002), which may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO and FFOM utilized by other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.  We adjust the NAREIT definition to add back noncontrolling interests in consolidated real estate partnerships before real estate related depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related expenses, and deduct dividends on preferred stock.  Further, FFO and FFOM do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or other commitments and uncertainties.  FFO and FFOM should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) as an indicator of our performance, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions.
