The Company also reported Funds From Operations (“FFO”) available to common stockholders for the three-month period ended December 31, 2012 of $61.4 million or $0.55 per common share. The $61.4 million of FFO available to common stockholders for the fourth quarter of 2012 includes $2.5 million of interest refinancing costs, $1.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation expense, $0.8 million of one-time revenue and $0.2 million of acquisition related costs.

Normalized or Adjusted FFO was $0.58 per common share for the three-month period ended December 31, 2012. FFO and Adjusted FFO are non-GAAP financial measures. Normalized or Adjusted FFO is calculated as FFO available to common stockholders excluding the impact of certain non-cash items and certain items of revenue or expense, including, but not limited to: interest refinancing cost, acquisitions and stock-based compensation expense and one-time revenue items.

GAAP NET INCOME

For the three-month period ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported net income and net income available to common stockholders of $33.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $95.0 million. This compares to net income and net income available to common stockholders of $19.3 million, or $0.19 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $76.3 million, for the same period in 2011.

For the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2012, the Company reported net income and net income available to common stockholders of $120.7 million, or $1.12 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $350.5 million. This compares to net income of $52.6 million and net income available to common stockholders of $47.5 million, or $0.46 per diluted common share, on operating revenues of $292.2 million, for the same period in 2011.

The year-to-date increase in net income was primarily due to: (i) additional rental income and mortgage interest income associated with approximately $510 million of new investments made throughout 2012; (ii) $10.1 million in incremental gains on asset sales; (iii) $26.1 million net decrease in real estate impairments; and (iv) $6.4 million net decrease in provision for uncollectible accounts receivable. These increases to net income were partially offset by increased expenses primarily associated with the new investments, including: (i) $12.6 million in increased depreciation expense; (ii) $14.4 million in increased interest expense; and (iii) $2.0 million in incremental general and administrative expenses. In addition, interest refinancing costs increased $4.8 million over 2011. The $4.8 million increase in refinancing costs resulted from a December 2012 $2.5 million charge associated with the termination of the Company's 2011 credit facility and a March 2012 $7.1 million charge associated with the tender and redemption of all of the Company's outstanding $175 million of 7% Senior Notes due 2016. These two charges were partially offset by a June 2012 $1.7 million gain related to the write-off of the unamortized premium on four HUD mortgage loans the Company prepaid and an August 2011 $3.1 million write-off of deferred cost associated with the termination of the Company's 2010 credit facility.

2012 FINANCING ACTIVITIES

$700 Million Unsecured Credit Facility – Effective December 6, 2012, the Company entered into a new $700 million unsecured credit facility, comprised of a $500 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Credit Facility”) and a $200 million unsecured, deferred draw term loan facility (the “Term Loan Facility” and, collectively, the “2012 Credit Facilities”).

The 2012 Credit Facilities replaces the Company's previous $475 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility (the “2011 Credit Facility”). The Revolving Credit Facility includes an “accordion feature” that permits the Company to expand its borrowing capacity by an additional $300 million, for a maximum aggregate commitment of $1 billion.

The Revolving Credit Facility is priced at LIBOR plus an applicable percentage (beginning at 150 basis points, with a range of 100 to 190 basis points) based on the Company's ratings from Standard & Poor's, Moody's and/or Fitch Ratings, plus a facility fee based on the same ratings (initially 30 basis points, with a range of 15 to 45 basis points). At December 31, 2012, the Company had $158 million in borrowings outstanding under the Revolving Credit Facility. The Revolving Credit Facility matures in four years, on December 6, 2016, with an option by the Company to extend the maturity one additional year.

The Term Loan Facility is also priced at LIBOR plus an applicable percentage (beginning at 175 basis points, with a range of 110 to 230 basis points) based on the Company's ratings from Standard & Poor's, Moody's and/or Fitch Ratings. At December 31, 2012, the Company had $100 million in borrowings outstanding under the Term Loan Facility. The Company has until April 5, 2013 to borrow the full $200 million under the Term Loan Facility. The Term Loan Facility matures in five years, on December 6, 2017.

The Company and its subsidiaries terminated the 2011 Credit Facility in connection with the effectiveness of the 2012 Credit Facilities. The Company did not experience any material early termination penalties due to the termination of the 2011 Credit Facility. For the three month period ending December 31, 2012, the Company recorded a one-time charge of approximately $2.5 million relating to the write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the termination of the 2011 Credit Facility.

$11.8 Million HUD Mortgage Payoffs – On June 29, 2012, the Company paid $11.8 million to retire four mortgage loans guaranteed by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (“HUD”). The loans were assumed as part of a December 2011 purchase of 17 skilled nursing facilities (“SNFs”) and had a blended interest rate of 6.49% per annum with maturities between October 2029 and September 2042. The payoff resulted in a $1.7 million gain on the extinguishment of the debt and was recorded in second quarter of 2012.

$245 Million Equity Shelf Program – On June 19, 2012, the Company entered into separate Equity Distribution Agreements (collectively, the “2012 Agreements”) with several financial institutions, each as a sales agent and/or principal (collectively, the “Managers”) to establish a $245 million Equity Shelf Program. Under the terms of the 2012 Agreements, the Company may sell shares of its common stock, from time to time, through or to the Managers having an aggregate gross sales price of up to $245 million. Sales of the shares will be made by means of ordinary brokers' transactions on the New York Stock Exchange at market prices, or as otherwise agreed with the applicable Manager. The Company will pay each Manager compensation for sales of the shares equal to 2% of the gross sales price per share of shares sold through such Manager.

$140 Million Equity Shelf Program Termination Also on June 19, 2012, the Company terminated its $140 million Equity Shelf Program (“2010 ESP”). Since inception of the 2010 ESP, the Company sold a total of 5.3 million shares of common stock generating total net proceeds of $112.6 million, net of $2.3 million in commissions.

$400 Million 5.875% Senior Notes Issuance On March 19, 2012, the Company issued $400 million aggregate principal amount of its 5.875% Senior Notes due 2024 (the “2024 Notes”). The 2024 Notes were sold at a price equal to 100% of their face value. The Company used the net proceeds of the offering to fund its cash tender and redemption of its then outstanding $175 million aggregate principal amount of 7% Senior Notes due 2016 (the “2016 Notes”) and used the balance to repay a portion of its outstanding borrowings under its 2011 Credit Facility.

$175 Million 7% Senior Notes Tender and Redemption – On March 5, 2012, the Company commenced a tender offer to purchase for cash any and all of its outstanding 2016 Notes. Pursuant to the terms of the tender offer, on March 19, 2012, the Company purchased $168.9 million aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes. The Company paid holders of the tendered 2016 Notes consent payments aggregating approximately $4.5 million over the face amount of the 2016 Notes.

On March 27, 2012, the Company redeemed the remaining $6.1 million aggregate principal amount of the 2016 Notes at a redemption price of 102.333% of the principal amount thereof, plus accrued and unpaid interest on the 2016 Notes up to the redemption date.

In connection with the tender offer and redemption, the Company wrote-off approximately $2.6 million of deferred financing costs and other related expenses in connection with the repurchase. The consideration for the tender and redemption of the 2016 Notes was paid from the proceeds from the sale of the 2024 Notes.

The Company may, from time to time, update its publicly announced Adjusted FFO and FAD guidance, but it is not obligated to do so.

The Company's Adjusted FFO and FAD guidance is based on a number of assumptions, which are subject to change and many of which are outside the Company's control. If actual results vary from these assumptions, the Company's expectations may change. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the timing and completion of acquisitions, divestitures, capital and financing transactions, and variations in restricted stock amortization expense may cause actual results to vary materially from our current expectations. There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve its projected results.

This press release includes Funds From Operations, or FFO, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. For purposes of the Securities and Exchange Commission's Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows (or equivalent statements) of the company, or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable financial measure so calculated and presented. As used in this press release, GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

The Company calculates and reports FFO in accordance with the definition and interpretive guidelines issued by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), and consequently, FFO is defined as net income available to common stockholders, adjusted for the effects of asset dispositions and certain non-cash items, primarily depreciation and amortization and impairments on real estate assets. The Company believes that FFO is an important supplemental measure of its operating performance. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets requires depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, while real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions. The term FFO was designed by the real estate industry to address this issue. FFO described herein is not necessarily comparable to FFO of other real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that do not use the same definition or implementation guidelines or interpret the standards differently from the Company.

The Company uses FFO as one of several criteria to measure the operating performance of its business. The Company further believes that by excluding the effect of depreciation, amortization, impairments on real estate assets and gains or losses from sales of real estate, all of which are based on historical costs and which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods and between other REITs. The Company offers this measure to assist the users of its financial statements in analyzing its performance; however, this is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered a measure of liquidity, an alternative to net income or an indicator of any other performance measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors in the Company's securities should not rely on this measure as a substitute for any GAAP measure, including net income.

Adjusted FFO is calculated as FFO available to common stockholders excluding the impact of non-cash stock-based compensation and certain revenue and expense items identified above. The Company believes that Adjusted FFO provides an enhanced measure of the operating performance of the Company's core portfolio as a REIT. The Company's computation of Adjusted FFO is not comparable to the NAREIT definition of FFO or to similar measures reported by other REITs, but the Company believes it is an appropriate measure for this Company.

The Company currently expects its 2013 Adjusted FFO available to common stockholders to be between $2.45 and $2.50 per diluted share. The Company also expects its 2013 Adjusted FAD available to common stockholders to be between $2.20 and $2.25 per diluted share. The following table presents a reconciliation of our guidance regarding 2013 FFO and Adjusted FFO and FAD and Adjusted FAD to net income available to common stockholders:
