Highlight of Business Operations:

During the six months ended June 30, 2009, operating cash flows approximated $29.2 million, which, along with borrowings from our revolving credit facility, were used to fund our dividends of $29.4 million and investing activities of $4.4 million. In January 2009, we completed a public offering of 12.0 million shares of our common stock at $5.40 per share. Including the underwriters’ purchase of approximately 1.3 million additional shares to cover over allotments, net proceeds from this offering, after underwriting discount and commissions and fees, were approximately $67.9 million. The net proceeds of this offering were generally used to repay borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facilities. At June 30, 2009 we had approximately $71.0 million of available borrowing capacity under our credit facilities and cash of approximately $7.9 million.

For the first six months of 2008, we generated cash of approximately $342.6 million from various sources including $128.0 million from an equity offering, $79.6 million from the issuance of exchangeable notes, $105.0 million from the sale of the three facilities to Vibra, and $30.0 million from a new term loan. These proceeds along with cash already on hand and borrowings from our revolving credit facilities were used to fund our $357.2 million acquisition of 20 healthcare facilities and the $60.0 million financing arrangement with affiliates of Prime related to three southern California hospital campuses (including two MOBs).

Long-term Liquidity Requirements: Our first significant maturity of debt is in November 2010 when our $30.0 million term loan ($29.7 million outstanding on August 5, 2009) and our $154.0 million revolving credit facility ($93 million outstanding on August 5, 2009) mature. However, of the approximately $122.6 million coming due in 2010, the $93.0 million related to our revolving credit facility, can be extended to November 2011 so long as no default has occurred and we provide necessary notice of our intentions to extend the facility.

General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2009 increased compared to the same period in 2008 by $1.2 million, or 26.1%, from $4.6 million to $5.8 million. We have experienced a slight increase in salaries and wages and accrued bonuses due to an increase in the number of employees in 2009 and higher office and travel expenses as a result of the expansion of our portfolio.

Interest expense for the quarters ended June 30, 2009 and 2008 totaled $9.4 million and $12.9 million, respectively. The decrease in interest expense was primarily the result of the $3.2 million non-cash charge for the write-off of costs associated with the short-term bridge facility that was terminated in June 2008.

General and administrative expenses in the first two quarters of 2009 and 2008 totaled $11.5 million and $9.0 million, respectively, an increase of 27.8%. The 2009 expenses include bonus accruals (of approximately $2.0 million) for the maximum amount of performance-based incentive compensation that may be incurred pursuant to the performance targets in our incentive compensation plans, while the 2008 expenses included a favorable accrual adjustment related to bonuses earned for 2007 resulting in an expense of only $0.4 million for the first six months of 2008. In addition, we have experienced a slight increase in salaries and wages due to an increase in the number of employees in 2009 and higher office and travel expenses as a result of the expansion of our portfolio.
