(1) GOV calculates FFO and Normalized FFO as shown above. FFO is calculated on the basis defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which is net income, calculated in accordance with GAAP, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, excluding any gain or loss on sale of properties, as well as other adjustments currently not applicable to GOV. GOV's calculation of Normalized FFO differs from NAREIT's definition of FFO because GOV excludes acquisition related costs. GOV considers FFO and Normalized FFO to be appropriate measures of operating performance for a REIT, along with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities. GOV believes that FFO and Normalized FFO provide useful information to investors because by excluding the effects of certain historical amounts, such as depreciation expense, FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate a comparison of GOV's operating performance between periods and between GOV and other REITs. FFO and Normalized FFO are among the factors considered by GOV's Board of Trustees when determining the amount of distributions to its shareholders. Other factors include, but are not limited to, requirements to maintain GOV's status as a REIT, limitations in its revolving credit facility and term loan agreements, the availability of debt and equity capital to GOV, GOV's expectation of its future capital requirements and operating performance, and its expected needs and availability of cash to pay its obligations. FFO and Normalized FFO do not represent cash generated by operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income, operating income or cash flow from operating activities, determined in accordance with GAAP, or as indicators of GOV's financial performance or liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of GOV's needs. GOV believes that FFO and Normalized FFO may facilitate an understanding of its consolidated historical operating results. These measures should be considered in conjunction with net income, operating income and cash flow from operating activities as presented in GOV's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Other REITs and real estate companies may calculate FFO and Normalized FFO differently than GOV does.
