Landy, President and CEO, commented on the results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, “Monmouth continued to make progress on several fronts including:Acquiring a new 103,402 square foot distribution center in Roanoke, Virginia for $10.2 million.  This property is leased to FedEx Ground for the next 10 years.  Renewing 93% of our leases or 897,000 square feet set to expire this fiscal year. Our occupancy rate now stands at 95.9%, representing the highest occupancy rate in the industrial property sector. Expanding our credit facility to $40 million with an accordion feature up to $60 million.  Borrowings under the facility will bear interest at LIBOR plus 175 basis points to 250 basis points depending on the company’s leverage ratio. Growing our acquisition pipeline to approximately 2.0 million square feet representing over $130 million in total acquisitions. In keeping with our business model, all of the deals in our current pipeline contain leases of 10 years or longer and are all leased to investment grade tenants. In addition, we now have five building expansions in our pipeline. These expansions total 275,000 square feet and represent approximately $26.4 million in total cost. Generating $1.1 million in realized gains on our REIT securities investments during the third quarter and $7.0 million in gains realized thus far in fiscal 2013.  Overall, we believe Monmouth continues to be well positioned to continue to grow given our strong pipeline of deals and to take advantage of growth opportunities in our sector given our solid balance sheet and available liquidity.” Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation will host its Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results Webcast and Conference Call.  Senior management will discuss the results, current market conditions and future outlook on Thursday, August 8, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.The Company’s third quarter financial results being released herein will be available on the Company’s website at in the “Financial Information and Filings” section.To participate in the Webcast, select the microphone icon at the top of the homepage on the Company’s website at  Interested parties can also participate via conference call by calling toll free 888-317-6016 (domestically) or 412-317-6016 (internationally).The replay of the conference call will be available at 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, August 8, 2013.  It will be available until September 30, 2013, and can be accessed by dialing toll free 877-344-7529 (domestically) and 412-317-0088 (internationally) and entering the passcode 10029761.  A transcript of the call and the webcast replay will be available at the Company’s website, Real Estate Investment Corporation, founded in 1968 and one of the oldest public equity REITs in the U.S., specializes in net-leased industrial properties subject to long-term leases primarily to investment grade tenants.  The Company is a fully integrated and self-managed real estate company, whose property portfolio consists of seventy-three industrial properties and one shopping center located in twenty-six states, containing a total of approximately 9.4 million rentable square feet.  In addition, the Company owns a portfolio of REIT securities.Certain statements included in this press release which are not historical facts may be deemed forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Notes:  (1)  Non-US 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.  We define Core FFO as FFO plus acquisition costs.  FFO and Core FFO per diluted common share are defined as FFO and Core 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; (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 titled measures reported by other REITs. The Company’s FFO and Core FFO for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 are calculated as follows: Three Months EndedNine Months Ended6/30/20136/30/20126/30/20136/30/2012Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders$2,028,788$911,581$11,075,760$12,498,027Depreciation Expense3,193,9232,836,1349,603,4748,451,907Amortization of Intangible Assets384,703374,0711,154,1091,013,882(Gain) Loss on Sales of Depreciable Assets–(345,794)8,220FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders5,607,4144,121,78621,487,54921,972,036Acquisition Costs74,13755,236459,999620,960Core FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$5,681,551$4,177,022$21,947,548$22,592,996The Company’s Core FFO, excluding Lease Termination Income for the three and nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 are calculated as follows: Three Months EndedNine Months Ended6/30/20136/30/20126/30/20136/30/2012Core FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$5,681,551$4,177,022$21,947,548$22,592,996Less Lease Termination Income–690,7303,222,283Core FFO excluding Lease Termination Income Attributable to Common Shareholders$5,681,551$4,177,022$21,256,818$19,370,713The following are the Cash Flows provided (used) by Operating, Investing and Financing Activities for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012:Nine Months Ended6/30/136/30/12Operating Activities$18,217,490$21,348,526Investing Activities(42,079,399)(55,583,484)Financing Activities12,341,41475,302,814 SOURCE Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation
