The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA - Universal Health Realty Income Trust (NYSE:UHT) announced today that for the three-month period ended June 30, 2014, reported net income was $3.4 million, or $.26 per diluted share, as compared to $2.9 million, or $.23 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2013.

After adjusting the reported results for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 for the net impact of the items reflected on the attached Schedule of Non-GAAP Supplemental Information (“Supplemental Schedule”), consisting of transaction costs recorded in each period, our adjusted net income was $3.4 mill ion, or $.27 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $3.0 million, or $.24 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2013. The increase in adjusted net income of $459,000, or $.03 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to the second quarter of 2013, was attributable to a $181,000 increase in bonus rental earned on the hospital facilities leased to wholly-owned subsidiaries of Universal Health Services, Inc. and $278,000 of other combined net increases.

As calculated on the attached Supplemental Schedule, our adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) were $8.9 million, or $.69 per diluted share during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to $8.4 million, or $.67 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2013. The increase in our AFFO of $422,000, or $.02 per diluted share, during the second quarter of 2014, as compared to the second quarter of 2013, was primarily attributable to the above-mentioned increase to our net income.

For the six-month period ended June 30, 2014, reported net income was $7.2 million, or $.56 per diluted share, as compared to $6.4 million, or $.50 per diluted share, during the comparable six-month period of 2013.

After adjusting the reported results for the six-month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 for the net impact of the items reflected on the attached Supplemental Schedule, consisting of transaction costs and a gain recorded during the first six months of 2014, as discussed below, our adjusted net income was $7.0 million, or $.54 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2014 as compared to

$6.5 million, or $.51 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2013. The increase in adjusted net income of $470,000, or $.03 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2014, as compared to the comparable prior year period, occurred primarily during the second quarter of 2014, as discussed above.

As calculated on the Supplemental Schedule, our AFFO were $17.8 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2014, as compared to $17.5 million, or $1.38 per diluted share, during the first six months of 2013. The $348,000 increase was primarily attributable to the $470,000 increase in adjusted net income, as discussed above, offset by a $122,000 net decrease in the depreciation and amortization expense incurred at our properties (on a consolidated and unconsolidated basis).

  •   The Northwest Medical Center at Sugar Creek – a 16,700 square foot, multi-tenant medical office building located in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Effective January 1, 2014, we paid $170,000 to acquire the third-party minority ownership interests in Palmdale Medical Properties LLC (“Palmdale”) and Sparks Medical Properties LLC (“Sparks”) in which we previously held noncontrolling majority ownership interests. As a result, we now own 100% of each of these LLCs, which own multi-tenant medical office buildings, and began accounting for each on a consolidated basis effective January 1, 2014. Included in our financial results during the six-month period ended June 30, 2014 is an aggregate net gain of $316,000 recorded in connection with fair value recognition of the assets and liabilities of these entities.

At June 30, 2014, we had $102.4 million of borrowings outstanding under our $150 million revolving credit agreement and $39.6 million of available borrowing capacity, net of outstanding borrowings and letters of credit.

During the fourth quarter of 2013, we commenced an at-the-market equity issuance program pursuant to the terms of which we may sell, from time-to-time, common shares of our beneficial interest up to an aggregate sales price of $50 million to or through Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith Incorporated (“Merrill Lynch”), as sales agent and/or principal. Pursuant to this ATM Program, during the first six months of 2014, we issued 57,410 shares at an average price of $42.67 per share (all issued during the first quarter of 2014) which generated approximately $2.3 million of net cash proceeds (net of compensation to Merrill Lynch and other various fees and expenses). Since inception of this program, we have issued 212,123 shares at an average price of $41.97 per share, which generated approximately $8.4 million of net cash proceeds (net of compensation to Merrill Lynch and other various fees and expenses).

As a result of the purchase of the above-mentioned third-party minority ownership interests in Palmdale and Sparks, we began accounting for these LLCs on a consolidated basis effective January 1, 2014. Prior to January 1, 2014, these LLCs were accounted for on an unconsolidated basis pursuant to the equity method. Previously, Palmdale was included in our financial statements on a consolidated basis through June 30, 2013 as a result of a master lease arrangement with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Universal Health Services, Inc. which expired on July 1, 2013.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, Sparks had revenues of $289,000, operating expenses of $201,000, depreciation and amortization expense of $83,000, interest expense of $53,000 and a net loss of $48,000. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, Sparks had revenues of $576,000, operating expenses of $367,000, depreciation and amortization expense of $166,000, interest expense of $125,000 and a net loss of $82,000. This supplemental financial information is not presented for Palmdale since it was previously included in our financial statements on a consolidated basis during the first six months of 2013. There was no material impact to our net income as a result of the consolidation of these LLCs.

Universal Health Realty Income Trust, a real estate investment trust, invests in healthcare and human service related facilities including acute care hospitals, behavioral healthcare facilities, rehabilitation hospitals, sub-acute care facilities, surgery centers, childcare centers and medical office buildings.

This press release contains forward-looking statements based on current management expectations. Numerous factors, including those disclosed herein, those related to healthcare and healthcare real estate industry trends and those detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (as set forth in Item 1A-Risk Factors and in Item 7-Forward-Looking Statements and Risk Factors in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and in Item 2-Forward-Looking Statements and Certain Risk Factors in our Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014), may cause the results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements. Many of the factors that will determine our future results are beyond our capability to control or predict. These statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and therefore actual results may differ materially. Readers should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements which reflect management’s view only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Funds from operations (“FFO”) is a widely recognized measure of performance for Real Estate Investment Trusts (“REITs”). We believe that FFO and FFO per diluted share, and adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) and AFFO per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures (“GAAP” is Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America), are helpful to our investors as measures of our operating performance. We compute FFO, as reflected on the attached Supplemental Schedules, in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs

that do not compute FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition, or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than we interpret the definition. AFFO was also computed for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, as reflected on the Supplemental Schedules and discussed herein, since we believe it is helpful to our investors since it adjusts for the effect of the gains on the fair value recognition resulting from the purchase of minority interests in majority-owned LLCs (during the first quarter of 2014) and transaction costs related to acquisitions. FFO/AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered to be an alternative to net income determined in accordance with GAAP. In addition, FFO/AFFO should not be used as: (i) an indication of our financial performance determined in accordance with GAAP; (ii) an alternative to cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP; (iii) a measure of our liquidity, or; (iv) an indicator of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders. A reconciliation of our reported net income to FFO/AFFO is reflected on the Supplemental Schedules included below.

To obtain a complete understanding of our financial performance these measures should be examined in connection with net income, determined in accordance with GAAP, as presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto in this report or in our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission including our Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 and our Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2014. Since the items included or excluded from these measures are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance under GAAP, these measures should not be considered to be alternatives to net income as a measure of our operating performance or profitability. Since these measures, as presented, are not determined in accordance with GAAP and are thus susceptible to varying calculations, they may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Investors are encouraged to use GAAP measures when evaluating our financial performance.

Mortgage and other notes payable, non-recourse to us (including net debt premium of $604,000 and $834,000 at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively)      115,239        106,287
