In addition to the severance-related charges discussed above, operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 include the positive impact of $0.05 per share or $24 million of interest income from the par payoff of our Barchester debt investments. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 also includes gain on sale of real estate of $8 million.

FFO, FFO as adjusted and FAD are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful in evaluating the operating performance of real estate investment trusts.

LAURALEE E. MARTIN NAMED AS PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

On October 2, 2013, our Board of Directors elected Lauralee E. Martin to the position of President and Chief Executive Officer of HCP. One of the highest-ranking women in commercial real estate, she has served on HCP’s Board of Directors for five years and has left her position as Chief Executive of the Americas division of Jones Lang LaSalle Incorporated. In addition, the Board of Directors also elected Michael D. McKee as the Company’s non-executive Chairman of the Board.

INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS

On September 6, 2013, we received £129 million ($202 million) from the par payoff of our Barchester debt investments, resulting in interest income of $24 million from the acquisition-related discounts. We acquired these debt investments in two transactions: (i) £121 million at a discount for £109 million in May 2013; and (ii) £9 million at a discount for £5 million in August 2013.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2013, we funded $55 million for construction and other capital projects, primarily in our life science, medical office and senior housing segments.

OTHER EVENTS

On July 18, 2013, we executed a new five-year lease (expected to commence January 2014) for an entire 63,000 sq. ft. building that further expands our relationship with Roche/Genentech in South San Francisco, CA to a total of 857,000 sq. ft.

On September 25, 2013, we acquired a 60-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility (“IRF”) valued at $15 million from Kindred Healthcare (“Kindred”) located in Webster, TX; in exchange, we sold a 62-bed hospital in Greenfield, WI and recognized a gain of $8 million. Kindred will continue to operate the Webster, TX facility as part of an existing 12-property master lease; this exchange transaction improves the master lease coverage and maintains current rental income levels.

On October 8, 2013, we executed an eight-year, 69,000 sq. ft. new lease with a genomic diagnostics tenant, CardioDx, at our Redwood City, CA life science campus. The lease with CardioDx will anchor approximately 75% of two redevelopment buildings we repositioned in 2011.

On October 28, 2013, James F. Flaherty resigned from our Board of Directors.

SUSTAINABILITY

HCP has been named the Global and North American Leader for the Healthcare Sector by the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) for the second consecutive year. Further, HCP was added to CDP’s Global 500 and S&P 500 Climate Disclosure Leadership Indices, as well as the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index.

During the quarter, we (i) earned seven ENERGY STAR awards in our medical office and senior housing segments; and (ii) received three LEED certifications in our medical office and life science segments. As of September 30, 2013, we have been awarded 111 ENERGY STAR certifications and 10 LEED certifications.

More information about HCP’s sustainability efforts can be found on our website at www.hcpi.com/sustainability.html.

DIVIDEND

On October 24, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.525 per common share. The dividend will be paid on November 19, 2013 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 4, 2013.

OUTLOOK

For full year 2013, we expect: FFO as adjusted applicable to common shares to range between $2.97 and $3.03 per share, which estimate at the mid-point represents an increase of 8% over the 2012 comparable amount; FAD applicable to common shares to range between $2.48 and $2.54 per share, which estimate at the mid-point represents an increase of 13% over the 2012 comparable amount; FFO applicable to common shares to range between $2.91 and $2.97 per share; and net income applicable to common shares to range between $1.95 and $2.01 per share. These estimates do not reflect the potential impact of future acquisitions or dispositions. See the “Projected Future Operations” section of this release for additional information regarding these estimates.

________________________________________

(1)     We believe Funds From Operations (“FFO”) is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for a REIT. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets utilizes straight-line depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen and fallen with market conditions, presentations of operating results for a REIT that use historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. The term FFO was designed by the REIT industry to address this issue. FFO is defined as net income applicable to common shares (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or “GAAP”), excluding gains or losses from acquisition and dispositions of depreciable real estate or related interests, impairments of, or related to, depreciable real estate, plus real estate and DFL depreciation and amortization, with adjustments for joint ventures. Adjustments for joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income. Our computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts’ (“NAREIT”) definition or that have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from us. In addition, we present FFO before the impact of severance-related charges, litigation settlement charges, preferred stock redemption charges, impairments (recoveries) of non-depreciable assets and merger-related items (“FFO as adjusted”). Management believes FFO as adjusted is a useful alternative measurement. This measure is a modification of the NAREIT definition of FFO and should not be used as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP).
 
(2) The Company’s Board of Directors, after deliberations during the third quarter 2013, terminated its former Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President on October 2, 2013. As a result of the termination, we incurred severance-related charges of $26.4 million that include: (i) the acceleration of $16.7 million of deferred compensation for restricted stock units and options that vested upon termination; and (ii) severance payments and other costs of approximately $9.7 million.
 
(3) In connection with the redemption of our preferred stock, we incurred a one-time, non-cash redemption charge of $10.4 million related to the original issuance costs of the preferred stock.
 
(4) The impairment charge of $7.9 million related to the sale of a land parcel in our life science segment.

________________________________________

(1)     Funds Available for Distribution (“FAD”) is defined as FFO as adjusted after excluding the impact of the following: (i) amortization of acquired above/below market lease intangibles, net; (ii) amortization of deferred compensation expense; (iii) amortization of deferred financing costs, net; (iv) straight-line rents; (v) accretion and depreciation related to DFLs; and (vi) deferred revenues. Further, FAD is computed after deducting recurring capital expenditures, including leasing costs and second generation tenant and capital improvements and includes similar adjustments to compute our share of FAD from our unconsolidated joint ventures. Other REITs or real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating FAD, and accordingly, our FAD may not be comparable to those reported by other REITs. Although our FAD computation may not be comparable to that of other REITs, management believes FAD provides a meaningful supplemental measure of our ability to fund our ongoing dividend payments. In addition, management believes that in order to further understand and analyze our liquidity, FAD should be compared with net cash flows from operating activities as determined in accordance with GAAP and presented in our consolidated financial statements. FAD does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, and FAD should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of our performance, as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), or as a measure of our liquidity.
 
(2) Excludes $16.7 million related to the acceleration of deferred compensation for restricted stock units and options that vested upon termination of the Company’s former Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President on October 2, 2013, which is included in severance-related charges for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.
 
(3) For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, DFL accretion reflects an elimination of $15.4 million and $46.6 million, respectively. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, DFL accretion reflects an elimination of $14.9 million and $44.4 million, respectively. Our ownership interest in HCR ManorCare, Inc. (“HCR ManorCare”) is accounted for using the equity method, which requires an ongoing elimination of DFL income that is proportional to our ownership in HCR ManorCare. Further, our share of earnings from HCR ManorCare (equity income) increases for the corresponding elimination of related lease expense recognized at the HCR ManorCare level, which we present as a non-cash joint venture FAD adjustment.

________________________________________

(1)     We believe Net Operating Income from Continuing Operations (“NOI”) provides investors relevant and useful information because it reflects only income and operating expense items that are incurred at the property level and presents them on an unleveraged basis. We use NOI and adjusted NOI to make decisions about resource allocations, to assess and compare property level performance, and evaluate SPP. We believe that net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI. NOI should not be viewed as an alternative measure of operating performance to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) since it excludes certain components from net income. Further, our NOI may not be comparable to that of other REITs or real estate companies, as they may use different methodologies for calculating NOI.
 
NOI is defined as rental and related revenues, including tenant recoveries, resident fees and services, and income from DFLs, less property level operating expenses. NOI excludes interest income, investment management fee income, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, general and administrative expenses, litigation settlement, impairments, impairment recoveries, other income, net, income taxes, equity income from and impairments of unconsolidated joint ventures, and discontinued operations. Adjusted NOI is calculated as NOI eliminating the effects of straight-line rents, DFL accretion, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles, and lease termination fees. Adjusted NOI is sometimes referred to as “cash NOI.”
 
(2) Same property portfolio (“SPP”) statistics allow management to evaluate the performance of our real estate portfolio under a consistent population, which eliminates the changes in the composition of our portfolio of properties. We identify our SPP as stabilized properties that remained in operations and were consistently reported as leased properties or operating properties (RIDEA) for the duration of the year-over-year comparison periods presented. Accordingly, it takes a stabilized property a minimum of 12 months in operations under a consistent reporting structure to be included in our SPP. SPP NOI excludes certain non-property specific operating expenses that are allocated to each operating segment on a consolidated basis.

(2) Severance-related charges were attributable to the termination of the Company’s former Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President on October 2, 2013. Severance-related charges of $26.4 million include: (i) the acceleration of $16.7 million of deferred compensation for restricted stock units and options that vested upon termination; and (ii) severance payments and other costs of approximately $9.7 million.
 
(3) Excludes $16.7 million related to the acceleration of deferred compensation for restricted stock units and options that vested upon termination of the Company’s former Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President on October 2, 2013, which is included in severance-related charges.
 
(4) Our ownership interest in HCR ManorCare OpCo is accounted for using the equity method, which requires an ongoing elimination of DFL income that is proportional to our ownership in HCR ManorCare OpCo. Further, our share of earnings from HCR ManorCare OpCo (equity income) increases for the corresponding elimination of related lease expense recognized at the HCR ManorCare OpCo level, which we present as a non-cash joint venture FAD adjustment.
