“Showcasing this resilience, our portfolio achieved 98% collections on contractual rent and common area charges for the second quarter. Each of our assets remains open and operating to meet the needs of healthcare providers and the patients they serve.

“We were also excited to release our inaugural annual ESG Report on June 30, 2020, and to launch bold and ambitious diversity, equity, and inclusion goals, established by our team’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee and approved by our Board of Trustees. We encourage you to visit our website to review them in detail.

Other Recent Events

Second Quarter Investment Activity

In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, the Company funded of one mezzanine loan for $13.0 million as well as $10.2 million of previous construction loan commitments, including the $4.6 million final draw to complete and open a radiation oncology treatment facility in Denton, Texas. Additionally, the Company paid $0.5 million of additional purchase consideration under an earn-out agreement resulting in total second quarter investment activity of $23.7 million.

Coronavirus (COVID-19 pandemic) Update

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on our tenants, the Company, and its current operations. The Company has leveraged its technological capabilities to allow its employees to work from their homes effectively, abide by state and local safety orders, and continue to perform their responsibilities. The Company expects this arrangement to continue until its employees can safely return to the office in accordance with applicable local, state, and federal laws, orders, regulations, mandates, and guidance.

As of August 3, 2020, all of our facilities are open and operational and we have collected 98% of second quarter billings with concessions limited primarily to waiving late fees. Because the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are uncertain, there can be no assurance that there will not be any additional restrictions or orders in the future, whether patients will continue to seek medical care, particularly elective medical care and procedures that can be delayed, at the same rates prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting impact on our tenants. For further detail of the impact and the Company’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, please refer to the Supplemental Update, dated July 1, 2020, provided on our website as well as the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

Recent Investment Activity

Since June 30, 2020, the Company funded an additional $1.3 million on a previous construction loan commitment.

Recent Capital Activity

During the second quarter 2020, the Company issued 5,543,066 shares pursuant to its ATM program at a weighted average price of $18.07 for net proceeds of $99.1 million.

Dividend Paid

On June 18, 2020, our Board of Trustees authorized and declared a cash distribution of $0.23 per common share and OP Unit for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2020. The dividend was paid on July 17, 2020 to common shareholders and OP Unit holders of record as of the close of business on July 2, 2020.

Update on LifeCare Facilities

As part of the October 2019 assignment of master leases at the Company's three LTACH facilities to a new operator, approximately $1.0 million in past due rent and bankruptcy related charges were to be repaid in monthly installments concluding October 2020. As of June 30, 2020, obligations under this agreement have been fully satisfied, including the early payment of July rent.

Other Activity

On June 30, 2020, the Company announced the release of its inaugural environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) Report. The report outlines the Company’s commitment and progress towards goals related to ESG matters. “Beyond sharing our achievements to date, it illustrates to our shareholders and our healthcare partners DOC’s long-term commitment to being an ESG leader,” said Mr. Thomas. “We firmly believe that investing in all facets of sustainability–throughout our business and across our portfolio–is part of our responsibility as a company,” Thomas said. “Investing in our properties through sustainable upgrades reduces our operating costs, generating long-lasting savings for our healthcare partners and driving shareholder returns. Continued investments in social initiatives benefiting our team members and communities–while maintaining a strong focus on governance best practices–ensures that we sustain Physicians Realty Trust’s Invest in better® culture for many years to come. The ESG report is available at www.docreit.com/esg.”

On July 16, 2020, we announced that Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center earned the prestigious The Outstanding Building of the Year® (“TOBY®”) International Award from the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA). The International TOBY Awards are the commercial real estate industry’s highest recognition honoring excellence in building management and operations. Buildings are judged on all facets of building operations, including energy management, tenant relations, community involvement, emergency preparedness, and security. In 2020, Baylor Scott & White Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center first won local and regional competitions and then earned the designation as the top healthcare property worldwide honored with an International TOBY. We are proud and honored to earn this designation on behalf of our management teams and collaborators.

This press release includes Funds From Operations (FFO), Normalized FFO, Normalized Funds Available For Distribution (FAD), Net Operating Income (NOI), Cash NOI, MOB Same-Store Cash NOI, Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization for Real Estate (EBITDAre) and Adjusted EBITDAre, which are non-GAAP financial measures. For purposes of the SEC’s Regulation G, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that excludes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of excluding amounts, that are included in the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of operations, balance sheet or statement of cash flows (or equivalent statements) of the company, or includes amounts, or is subject to adjustments that have the effect of including amounts, that are excluded from the most directly comparable financial measure so calculated and presented. As used in this press release, GAAP refers to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, we have provided reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

We believe that information regarding FFO is helpful to shareholders and potential investors because it facilitates an understanding of the operating performance of our properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over time. We calculate FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“Nareit”). Nareit defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) before noncontrolling interests of holders of OP units, excluding preferred distributions, gains (or losses) on sales of depreciable operating property, impairment write-downs on depreciable assets, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs). Our FFO computation includes our share of required adjustments from our unconsolidated joint ventures and may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with Nareit definition or that interpret the Nareit definition differently than we do. The GAAP measure that we believe to be most directly comparable to FFO, net income, includes depreciation and amortization expenses, gains or losses on property sales, impairments, and noncontrolling interests. In computing FFO, we eliminate these items because, in our view, they are not indicative of the results from the operations of our properties. To facilitate a clear understanding of our historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as presented in our financial statements. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered to be an alternative to net income or loss (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity and is not indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions to shareholders.

We use Normalized FFO, which excludes from FFO net change in fair value of derivative financial instruments, acceleration of deferred financing costs, change in fair value of contingent consideration, and other normalizing items. However, our use of the term Normalized FFO may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount. Normalized FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), as an indicator of our financial performance or of cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP), or as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. Normalized FFO should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

We define Normalized FAD, a non-GAAP measure, which excludes from Normalized FFO non-cash share compensation expense, straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above- or below-market leases and assumed debt, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of deferred financing costs, recurring capital expenditures related to tenant improvements and leasing commissions, loan reserve adjustments, and cash payments from seller master leases and rent abatement payments, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. Other REITs or real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating Normalized FAD, and accordingly, our computation may not be comparable to those reported by other REITs. Although our computation of Normalized FAD may not be comparable to that of other REITs, we believe Normalized FAD provides a meaningful supplemental measure of our performance due to its frequency of use by analysts, investors, and other interested parties in the evaluation of our performance as a REIT. Normalized FAD should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss attributable to controlling interest (computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of our financial performance. Normalized FAD should be reviewed in connection with other GAAP measurements.

NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure that is defined as net income or loss, computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from our total portfolio of properties and other investments before general and administrative expenses, depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense, net change in the fair value of derivative financial instruments, gain or loss on the sale of investment properties, and impairment losses, including our share of all required adjustments from our unconsolidated joint ventures. We believe that NOI provides an accurate measure of operating performance of our operating assets because NOI excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Our 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.

Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from NOI straight-line rent adjustments, amortization of acquired above and below market leases, and other non-cash and normalizing items, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. Other non-cash and normalizing items include items such as the amortization of lease inducements, loan reserve adjustments, payments received from seller master leases and rent abatements, and changes in fair value of contingent consideration. We believe that Cash NOI provides an accurate measure of the operating performance of our operating assets because it excludes certain items that are not associated with management of the properties. Additionally, we believe that Cash NOI is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate community. Our use of the term Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

MOB Same-Store Cash NOI is a non-GAAP financial measure which excludes from Cash NOI assets not held for the entire preceding five quarters, non-MOB assets, and other normalizing items not specifically related to the same-store property portfolio. Management considers MOB Same-Store Cash NOI a supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts, and Company management to measure unlevered property-level operating results. Our use of the term MOB Same-Store Cash NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as such other companies may have different methodologies for computing this amount.

We calculate EBITDAre in accordance with standards established by Nareit and define EBITDAre as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, loss (gain) on dispositions, and impairment loss, including our share of all required adjustments from unconsolidated joint ventures. We define Adjusted EBITDAre, which excludes from EBITDAre non-cash share compensation expense, non-cash changes in fair value, the pro forma impact of investment activity, and other normalizing items. We consider EBITDAre and Adjusted EBITDAre important measures because they provide additional information to allow management, investors, and our current and potential creditors to evaluate and compare our core operating results and our ability to service debt.
