Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2009 Financial Results
Date:3/12/2010

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. ("HTA" or the "Company"), a self-managed, non-traded, real estate investment trust, announced results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2009. Highlights include:

Revenues: Total revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2009 were $37.4 million compared to $27.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2008, which represents an increase of 38%. Fourth quarter revenues increased 18% over third quarter revenues of $31.7 million.  For the year ended December 31, 2009, revenues were $129.5 million compared to $80.4 million in the prior year, representing a 61% increase.

Distributions: The Company paid distributions of $23.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2009 and $78.1 million for the full year 2009.

Modified Funds from Operations: The Company's modified funds from operations ("MFFO") attributable to controlling interest were $16.8 million for the 2009 fourth quarter, representing 70% of distributions paid during the quarter.  MFFO coverage for the fourth quarter was up 50% from third quarter coverage.   For the year ended December 31, 2009, the Company's MFFO was $48.0 million, representing 62% of distributions paid during the year, up 100% from the 2008 coverage. See the reconciliation of MFFO attributable to controlling interest to net loss below.

Net Operating Income: In the fourth quarter of 2009, net operating income ("NOI") increased to $25.3 million from $21.3 million in the third quarter of 2009, representing a 19% increase, and a 44% increase over the fourth quarter revenues of $17.6 million in 2008.   For the year ended December 31, 2009, NOI increased 62% to $84.5 million from $52.2 million.  See the reconciliation of NOI to net loss below.

2009 Cost Savings: The Company started its transition to self-management in the fourth quarter of 2008 when it amended its advisory agreement with its former advisor. Under this amendment, the Company set the framework for the transition to self management by putting in place a timeframe and process for the elimination of the external advisor model and the fees associated with such model, reducing remaining acquisition fees from 3% to an overall going forward average of 2.25%, reducing remaining asset management fees from 1% to 0.5%, eliminating future disposition fees and, eliminating any potential internalization fee.  The Company became fully self-managed in the third quarter of 2009. The Company transitioned its property management services to nationally recognized property management groups for market-based fees.  The reduced acquisition and asset management fees along with the savings from market-based property management fees in the third and fourth quarters of 2009 resulted in a total gross savings of approximately $10.8 million in 2009.  The cost of self-management during 2009 was approximately $5 million excluding one-time transition costs of approximately $2 million, resulting in a net savings of approximately $3.8 million ($10.8 million less $7 million). The Company paid its former advisor approximately $14.6 million of acquisition and asset management fees during 2009.  These fees will not be recurring, except for any remaining acquisition fees to the Company's former advisor for assets acquired with those remaining funds raised in the company's IPO by its former dealer manager.  

Investments: The Company completed seven acquisitions in the month of December 2009 comprised of 25 medical office buildings totaling 1,063,000 square feet and one real estate-related asset.  The total purchase price of these acquisitions was approximately $253 million. Assuming these acquisitions had occurred on October 1, 2009, our MFFO for the fourth quarter of 2009 would have been over $21 million and would have represented a coverage of over 88% of distributions paid during that period.  

During the full year of 2009, the Company completed 14 acquisitions of approximately $493.9 million.  The 2009 acquisitions were comprised of 54 medical office buildings totaling approximately 2,258,000 square feet and one real estate-related asset.  As of December 31, 2009, we have made 53 geographically diverse acquisitions, 41 of which are medical office properties, seven of which are healthcare related facilities, three of which are quality commercial office properties, and two of which are other real estate-related assets, comprising approximately 7,408,000 square feet of GLA, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $1.5 billion, in 21 states. Portfolio Occupancy remained consistent at over 90% from 2008 to 2009.  During 2009, the Company maintained a patient and prudent acquisition strategy which allowed it to build a strong cash position.  As a result, the Company was able to close its 2009 acquisitions with all cash while maintaining a low debt ratio as noted below.

To date in 2010, the Company has completed the acquisition of an 80,562 square foot medical office portfolio located in Atlanta, GA for a purchase price of $19.6 million and a 53,169 square foot medical office building located in Jacksonville, FL for a purchase price of $10.8 million.  In addition, the Company has announced pending acquisitions of approximately $123 million which include medical office building portfolios in Evansville, IN, Hilton Head, SC and Pearland, TX and medical office buildings in Baltimore, MD, Mount Pleasant, SC and Sugar Land, TX.  The pending acquisitions are expected to close in the first quarter of 2010, subject to certain conditions.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity: During the fourth quarter of 2009, the Company continued to maintain a strong balance sheet with total assets of $1.7 billion including cash on hand of approximately $219 million as of December 31, 2009.  With debt of $540 million, the Company's leverage as a percentage of its total assets is 32%.  In spite of the economic conditions impacting the debt market, the Company was able to secure long-term financing with certain life insurance companies for approximately $72 million with an average loan term of 7.4 years and an average interest rate of 6.17%.  The Company anticipates securing additional financing with life insurance companies and other lenders in connection with certain planned future acquisitions as terms continue to remain favorable.

Funds from Operations and Modified Funds from Operations

FFO is a non-GAAP measure that we define consistent with the standards established by NAREIT.  NAREIT defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains or losses from sales of property but including asset impairment write downs, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO.

MFFO is a non-GAAP financial measure that we define as FFO less acquisition expenses and one-time transition charges.

The following is the reconciliation of FFO and MFFO attributable to controlling interest to net loss for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2009:
