Concentrations of credit risk arise when a number of borrowers, tenants, operators or issuers related to the Company's investments are engaged in similar business activities or located in the same geographic location to be similarly affected by changes in economic conditions. The Company monitors its portfolio to identify potential concentrations of credit risks. The Company has no one borrower, tenant or operator that generates 10% or more of its total revenue. However, two operators in the Company's healthcare net lease portfolio generate 13% and 20% of the Company's rental and escalation income for the six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, which represents 3% and 5% of total revenue, respectively. The Company believes the remainder of its net lease portfolio is reasonably well diversified and does not contain any unusual concentration of credit risks.
