SECOND QUARTER 2008 RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Diluted Funds From Operations ("FFO") and Diluted Funds Available forDistribution ("FAD") are non-generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP")measures that we believe are important to understanding our operations. Webelieve diluted FFO is an important supplemental measure of operatingperformance because it excludes the effects of depreciation and amortizationand gains (losses) from sales of facilities (both of which are based onhistorical costs and which may be of limited relevance in evaluating currentperformance). We believe diluted FAD is an important supplemental measure ofoperating performance because, like diluted FFO, it excludes the effects ofdepreciation and amortization and gains (losses) from sales of facilities(both of which are based on historical costs and which may be of limitedrelevance in evaluating current performance). It also excludes straight-linedrent and other non-cash items that have become more significant for us and ourcompetitors over the last several years. We believe that net income is themost directly comparable GAAP measure to diluted FFO and diluted FAD.Reconciliations between net income and diluted FFO and net income and dilutedFAD are included in the accompanying financial data. For guidance, we havealso included in the accompanying financial data reconciliations between netincome per share and diluted FFO and FAD per share.
