Dividends for Second Quarter 2013  As previously announced, the Board of Directors declared a cash dividend for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 of $0.765 per share, as compared to $0.74 per share for the same period in 2012, representing a 3.4% increase. On August 20, 2013, the company will pay its 169th consecutive quarterly cash dividend. The declaration and payment of quarterly dividends remains subject to review by and approval of the Board of Directors.

Second Quarter Investment Highlights  During the quarter, the company completed the previously announced $1.3 billion partnership with Revera Inc. to own 47 properties in attractive Canadian markets. The company owns a 75% interest in the portfolio and Revera owns the remaining 25% interest. The portfolio was previously owned 100% by Revera and is primarily comprised of independent living communities, with many offering a continuum of care that includes assisted living and/or memory care. Revera manages the communities under an incentive-based management contract. The company expects the portfolio to generate an initial unlevered NOI yield of 7%. Please see the press release announcing the transaction dated May 8, 2013, for additional highlights of the transaction. The release is available on the Investor Relations tab of the company's website.

Investment Subsequent to Quarter End  Subsequent to the end of the second quarter, the company completed a $213 million (£140 million) sale/leaseback transaction with Avery Healthcare. The acquired portfolio includes 14 seniors housing communities with 940 beds in the United Kingdom. The average age of the communities is two years. Avery is one of England's premier and most active seniors housing developers/operators. The lease is absolute net with capital expenditures funded by Avery. Rent under the lease will generate an initial yield of 7% and increase 3% per year over the initial 20-year lease term. Avery will guarantee the lease. Health Care REIT has an exclusive option to invest in Avery's future acquisitions and new developments. The company expects to acquire up to four new seniors housing communities per year upon completion of construction, and will add each community to the master lease. Avery will fund all working capital associated with the lease-up of each community. The Avery portfolio investment is consistent with the company's strategy to own high-quality, private pay real estate in attractive markets operated by best-in-class providers. Including the 14 Avery communities, the company has investments in 45 seniors housing communities located in attractive U.K. markets with an investment balance of $1.6 billion.

Sunrise Acquisition Update  As previously announced, the company completed the $745.2 million final phase of the Sunrise Senior Living property portfolio acquisition on July 1, 2013. The aggregate $4.3 billion investment includes 120 wholly-owned properties and five properties owned in joint ventures with third parties. The company expects the portfolio to generate an unlevered NOI yield exceeding 6.5% in the second half of 2013.

Outlook for 2013  The company affirms its 2013 guidance and assumptions as previously announced and continues to expect to generate normalized FFO in a range of $3.70 to $3.80 per diluted share and normalized FAD in a range of $3.25 to $3.35 per diluted share, both representing a 5%-8% increase. The company is revising its 2013 net income guidance primarily to reflect the net impact of the Revera and Avery acquisitions, the May common stock issuance, depreciation and amortization adjustments, normalizing items and gains/losses on property sales. The company now expects to report net income attributable to common stockholders in a range of $0.58 to $0.68 per diluted share. The company's guidance does not include any additional 2013 investments beyond what it has announced, nor any transaction costs, capital transactions, impairments, unanticipated additions to the loan loss reserve or other additional one-time items, including any additional cash payments other than normal monthly rental payments. Please see the exhibits for a reconciliation of the outlook for net income available to common stockholders to normalized FFO and FAD. The company will provide additional detail regarding its 2013 outlook and assumptions on the second quarter 2013 conference call.

Supplemental Reporting Measures  The company believes that net income attributable to common stockholders (NICS), as defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP), is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, the company considers funds from operations (FFO) and funds available for distribution (FAD) to be useful supplemental measures of its operating performance. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time as evidenced by the provision for depreciation. However, since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient. In response, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) created FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs that excludes historical cost depreciation from net income. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, means net income, computed in accordance with U.S. GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and impairments of depreciable assets, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated entities. Normalized FFO represents FFO adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. FAD represents FFO excluding net straight-line rental adjustments, amortization related to above/below market leases and amortization of non-cash interest expenses and less cash used to fund capital expenditures, tenant improvements and lease commissions. Normalized FAD represents FAD excluding prepaid/straight-line rent cash receipts and adjusted for certain items detailed in Exhibit 1. The company believes that normalized FFO and normalized FAD are useful supplemental measures of operating performance because investors and equity analysts may use these measures to compare the operating performance of the company between periods or as compared to other REITs or other companies on a consistent basis without having to account for differences caused by unanticipated and/or incalculable items. The company's supplemental reporting measures and similarly entitled financial measures are widely used by investors and equity analysts in the valuation, comparison and investment recommendations of companies. The company's management uses these financial measures to facilitate internal and external comparisons to historical operating results and in making operating decisions. Additionally, they are utilized by the Board of Directors to evaluate management. The supplemental reporting measures do not represent net income or cash flow provided from operating activities as determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternative measures of profitability or liquidity. Finally, the supplemental reporting measures, as defined by the company, may not be comparable to similarly entitled items reported by other real estate investment trusts or other companies. Please see the exhibits for reconciliations of supplemental reporting measures and the supplemental information package for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, which is available on the company's website (, for information and reconciliations of additional supplemental reporting measures.
