"MPT's investment strategy has always focused on acquiring quality hospital real estate that achieves the industry's most attractive returns," said Edward K. Aldag, Jr., Chairman, President and CEO of Medical Properties Trust. "The Company has now completed more than $3.3 billion in acquisitions, and more than $407 million year-to-date, subject to completion of the $283.3 million transaction announced this morning. This amount exceeds our acquisition target for the full-year, and with five months remaining, we expect to complete additional acquisitions. These strategic investments, which generate high yields, are each highly accretive and with built-in inflation escalations, support future FFO per share growth and dividend coverage, create additional diversification in our portfolio and continue to enhance shareholder value."

MPT recently executed a binding, confidential agreement to acquire the real estate assets of three general acute care hospitals for $283.3 million. The seller / lessee is a well-known operator of multiple acute care facilities, and the transaction is subject to customary conditions and is expected to close during the third quarter of 2013.

MPT has completed several other strategic acquisitions since the beginning of 2013:

  • The June acquisition and leaseback to affiliates of Prime Healthcare Services, Inc. of the real estate assets of two general acute care hospitals in the Kansas City area for an aggregate purchase price of $75.0 million;
  • The March and May commencement of development for and leases to affiliates of Ernest Health, Inc. of two inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in Post Falls, Idaho and South Ogden, Utah for an aggregate development and construction cost of approximately $33.5 million; and
  • The July acquisition and lease to affiliates of Ernest Health, Inc. of the real estate assets of the Corpus Christi, Texas Esplanade Rehab Hospital totaling approximately $15.8 million.

"As the changes and consolidation in the U.S. and international healthcare systems - and particularly in the hospital business - have led many leading operators to evaluate their optimal capital allocation options, we have been provided with a variety of opportunities, and are experiencing our strongest acquisition pipeline to date. This is truly a transformational period in hospital capital allocation, and we look forward to taking advantage of these opportunities as best in class U.S. and international hospital operators continue to reinvest in operations and growth opportunities through monetizing real estate," said Aldag.


Second quarter 2013 total revenues increased 17.5% to $57.5 million compared with $48.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. Normalized FFO for the quarter increased 21% to $35.9 million compared with $29.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. Per share Normalized FFO increased 9% to $0.24 per diluted share in the 2013 second quarter, compared with $0.22 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2012.

Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $27.3 million (or $0.18 per diluted share) compared with net income of $19.3 million (or $0.14 per diluted share) in the second quarter of 2012.


Upon closing, the transaction announced today will bring year-to-date acquisitions to more than $407 million. The year-to-date acquisitions are expected to result in a weighted average yield of approximately 9.25% (8.6% on an initial year cash basis) with a weighted average lease term of 14 years; the actual yield in future years may exceed 9.25% subject to inflation levels. On a pro forma basis, MPT's tenant and geographic diversification will improve such that the Company's largest tenant relationship will be reduced to 24% based on gross assets, assuming completion of all development commitments.

On June 30, 2013, the Company had total real estate and related investments of approximately $2.2 billion comprised of 84 healthcare properties in 25 states leased or loaned to 24 hospital operating companies. Based on the completed and pending acquisitions, the property sales completed in April 2013, and the February 28, 2013 equity offering of $172.9 million, the Company estimates that 2013 normalized funds from operations will range between $1.00 and $1.02 per diluted share. This was impacted primarily by the February 2013 equity offering, property sales, and the timing of the Company's 2013 acquisitions and financing assumptions. The Company further estimates that the run rate of funds from operations as of the end of 2013, assuming completion of no additional acquisitions or capital transactions, will range between $1.06 and $1.10 per diluted share.

Guidance estimates do not include the effects, if any, of real estate operating costs, litigation costs, debt refinancing costs, acquisition costs, interest rate hedging activities, write-offs of straight-line rent or other non-recurring or unplanned transactions. These estimates will change if the Company acquires assets totaling more or less than its expectations, the timing of acquisitions varies from expectations, capitalization rates vary from expectations, market interest rates change, debt is refinanced, new shares are issued, additional debt is incurred, assets are sold, other operating expenses vary, income from investments in tenant operations vary from expectations, or existing leases do not perform in accordance with their terms.
