Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

Scottsdale, Arizona (August 16, 2011) – Healthcare Trust of America, Inc. (“HTA” or the “Company”), a fully integrated, self-administered, and self-managed real estate investment trust focused primarily on medical office buildings (“MOBs”), announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

HTA’s financial performance in the second quarter of 2011 reflects the results of the Company’s continued portfolio performance and focus on financial strength and flexibility. Normalized funds from operations, or normalized FFO, increased by 4% from $28.1 million for the first quarter of 2011 to $29.1 million for the second quarter of 2011. Normalized FFO excludes from net income non-routine items and non-cash fair value adjustments for derivative financial instruments. Net income decreased to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2011, primarily due to a $1 million non-cash loss on interest rate swaps. Set forth below is a reconciliation of normalized FFO, a non-GAAP measure, to net income (loss).

Cash provided by operating activities increased by 86% to $35.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from $19.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 due to $590 million of investment volume in the last twelve months coupled with the performance of HTA’s 91% occupied portfolio. HTA’s normalized FFO for the second quarter of 2011 increased by 44% to $29.1 million from $20.2 million for the second quarter of 2010. Net income increased 390% to $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 compared to $245,000 for the second quarter of 2010.

For the six months ended June 30, 2011, HTA’s cash provided by operating activities was $60.8 million, representing a 91% increase over its cash provided by operating activities of $31.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Normalized FFO increased by 48% for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2010. Net income (loss) also improved to net income of $3.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from a net loss of $237,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2010.
HTA’s continued focus on its balance sheet strength and portfolio fundamentals has recently earned the company an investment grade credit rating. As of June 30, 2011, HTA had cash on hand of $154.3 million, a $575 million unused, unsecured credit facility, and a leverage ratio of mortgage and secured loans payable to total assets of 28%. This strong balance sheet position, MOB focus and recent investment grade credit rating provide HTA the new opportunity to access the public debt markets.

Funds from Operations, Modified Funds from Operations and Normalized Funds from Operations

HTA defines FFO, a non-GAAP measure, 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. HTA uses modified funds from operations, or MFFO, which excludes from FFO transition charges and acquisition-related expenses, to further evaluate how its portfolio might perform after its acquisition stage is complete and the sustainability of its distributions in the future.

HTA uses normalized funds from operations, or normalized FFO, which is calculated by deducting from MFFO termination fee revenue and adjusting for gains/losses in the change in fair value of derivative financial instruments. Like MFFO, HTA believes that normalized FFO is a useful supplemental measure for evaluating the potential future performance of the portfolio without regard to non-routine items and non-cash fair value adjustments for derivative financial instruments.

None of FFO, MFFO, or normalized FFO should be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or to cash flows from operating activities and are not intended to be used as a liquidity measure indicative of cash flow available to fund HTA’s cash needs, including its ability to make distributions. FFO, MFFO and normalized FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements. For more information on FFO and MFFO, please see HTA’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2011 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Net Operating Income

Net operating income, or NOI, is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income (loss), computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from HTA’s total portfolio of properties (including both its operating properties and those classified as held for sale as of June 30, 2011) before interest expense, general and administrative expenses, depreciation, amortization, certain one-time charges, and interest and dividend income. HTA believes that NOI provides an accurate measure of the operating performance of our operating assets because NOI excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Additionally, HTA believes that NOI is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate community. However, HTA’s use of the term NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

The following is the reconciliation of NOI to net income (loss) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010:
