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

Scottsdale, Arizona (November 14, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

HTA’s third quarter financial results reflect the strength of HTA’s high quality medical office portfolio combined with the financial flexibility provided by its low leveraged balance sheet. For the third quarter of 2011, HTA’s normalized funds from operations, or normalized FFO, increased by 38% to $28.5 million from $20.6 million for the third quarter of 2010. Normalized FFO excludes from FFO acquisition-related expenses, transition-related charges, termination fee revenue and non-cash fair value adjustments for derivative financial instruments. Net income decreased to $234,000 in the third quarter of 2011 compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2010, primarily because of a $589,000 non-cash loss on interest rate swaps in the third quarter of 2011 compared to a $774,000 non-cash gain in the third quarter of 2010, for a net difference of $1.4 million. Set forth below is a reconciliation of FFO and normalized FFO, non-GAAP measures, to net income (loss).

Normalized FFO increased by 45%, from $59.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 to $85.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. Net income also improved to $3.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 compared to $771,000 during the same period in the prior year, representing a 367% increase.

In October 2011, HTA completed the acquisition of two Class A MOBs located in Phoenix, Arizona, for $32 million, with 118,000 square feet of gross leasable area, or GLA, and a combined occupancy of 88%. At the end of the third quarter 2011, HTA entered into a purchase and sale agreement to acquire a 203,000 square foot on-campus MOB located in Novi, Michigan for $51.32 million with 98% occupancy. The closing of this acquisition is subject to a number of conditions.

As of September 30, 2011, 96% of HTA’s operating portfolio, based on GLA, is located on or adjacent to, or is anchored by, the campuses of nationally and regionally recognized healthcare systems. At the end of the third quarter 2011, HTA had a strong cash position with cash on hand of $122.3 million, an unused $575 million unsecured credit facility and a leverage ratio of mortgage and secured loans payable to total assets of 28%. In July 2011, HTA received an investment grade credit rating due to its MOB operating fundamentals and low-levered balance sheet position, improving HTA’s ability to access the debt markets and achieve favorable pricing.

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.

Normalized FFO 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.

FFO, MFFO, or normalized FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income 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 September 30, 2011 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The following is the reconciliation of FFO, MFFO and normalized FFO to net income for the three months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010:

Net Operating Income

Net operating income, or NOI, is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income, computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from HTA’s total portfolio of properties 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 its 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 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010:

Three months ended September 30,   Nine months ended September 30,
2011 2010   2011 2010
