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.   Core FFO is defined as FFO plus acquisition costs.  FFO per diluted common share is defined as FFO divided by weighted average diluted common shares outstanding.  FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by real estate investment trusts (REITs).  FFO and Core FFO per diluted 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 Core FFO per diluted common share are significant components in understanding the Company’s financial performance.FFO and Core FFO per diluted 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 Core FFO per diluted common share, as calculated by the Company, may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other REITs. The Company’s FFO and Core FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 are calculated as follows: Three Months Ended12/31/1212/31/11Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders$3,555,000$4,346,000Depreciation Expense3,134,0002,786,000Amortization of Lease Intangible Assets384,000318,000FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$7,073,000$7,450,000Acquisition Costs386,000304,000Core FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$7,459,000$7,754,000                                            The following are the cash flows provided (used) by operating, investing and financing activities for the quarters ended December 31, 2012 and 2011: 20122011Operating Activities$4,992,000$5,762,000Investing Activities(49,688,000)(32,379,000)Financing Activities30,329,00028,958,000SOURCE Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation
