Medical Properties Trust Inc. (MPW) filed Quarterly Report for the period ended 2009-09-30.

Medical Properties Trust, Inc. is a Birmingham, Alabama based self-advised real estate investment trust formed to capitalize on the changing trends in healthcare delivery by acquiring and developing net-leased healthcare facilities. These facilities include inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, long-term acute care hospitals, regional and community hospitals, women's and children's hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, and other single-discipline healthcare facilities, such as heart hospitals, orthopedic hospitals and cancer centers. Medical Properties Trust Inc. has a market cap of $707.9 million; its shares were traded at around $8.83 with a P/E ratio of 10.4 and P/S ratio of 6. The dividend yield of Medical Properties Trust Inc. stocks is 9.1%.

Highlight of Business Operations:

During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, operating cash flows approximated $50.4 million, which, along with borrowings from our revolving credit facility, were used to fund our dividends of $45.6 million and investing activities of $7.9 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 $67.8 million. The net proceeds of this offering were generally used to repay borrowings outstanding under our revolving credit facilities. At September 30, 2009 we had approximately $68.0 million of available borrowing capacity under our credit facilities and cash of approximately $13.1 million.

For the first nine months of 2008 in addition to operating cash flows of approximately $62.8 million, we generated cash of approximately $342.9 million from various sources including $128.3 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 ($29.6 million outstanding on November 6, 2009) and our $154.0 million revolving credit facility ($96 million outstanding on November 6, 2009) mature. However, of the approximately $125.6 million coming due in 2010, the $96.0 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.

Property-related expenses in the third quarter of 2009 increased from $0.3 million to $2.3 million. Approximately $1.1 million of this increase related to maintenance, utility costs, property taxes, and legal costs associated with our vacant River Oaks and previously vacant Bucks facility and $0.4 million in legal expense related to matters involving the previous tenant of our Redding facility. These expenses are typically paid by our tenants. No such expenses related to River Oaks, Bucks or Redding facilities were recorded in 2008. In addition, approximately $0.6 million in bad debt expense was recognized during the third quarter of 2009 related to our leases of six wellness centers.

Real estate depreciation and amortization during the first three quarters of 2009 was $19.4 million, compared to $19.5 million during the same period of 2008, a 0.4% decrease. Depreciation remained relatively flat as a result of an increase in the number of rent producing properties from 2008 to 2009 offset by the recognition of accelerated amortization of our lease intangibles associated with the River Oaks and Redding hospitals in September 2008 resulting in a charge of approximately $1.8 million and $2.7 million, respectively.

Property-related expenses during the first three quarters of 2009 increased from $0.5 million to $4.4 million. Approximately $2.5 million of this increase related to maintenance, utility costs, property taxes, and legal costs associated with our vacant River Oaks and Bucks facilities and $0.7 million in legal expense related to matters involving the previous tenant of our Redding facility. These expenses are typically paid by our tenants. No such expenses related to River Oaks, Bucks or Redding facility were recorded in 2008. In addition, approximately $0.6 million in bad debt expense was recognized during the third quarter of 2009 related to our leases of six wellness centers.
