Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
September 30, 2015
(Unaudited)


Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Business Overview
Healthcare Realty Trust Incorporated (the “Company”) is a real estate investment trust that integrates owning, managing, financing and developing income-producing real estate properties associated primarily with the delivery of outpatient healthcare services throughout the United States. The Company had investments of approximately $3.2 billion in 195 real estate properties as of September 30, 2015. The Company’s 195 owned real estate properties are located in 30 states and total approximately 14.1 million square feet. The Company provided property management services to approximately 9.6 million square feet nationwide.

Basis of Presentation
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. However, except as disclosed herein, management believes there has been no material change in the information disclosed in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. All material intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

This interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations included in this report and in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. Management believes that all adjustments of a normal, recurring nature considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. In addition, the interim financial information does not necessarily represent or indicate what the operating results will be for the year ending December 31, 2015 for many reasons including, but not limited to, acquisitions, dispositions, capital financing transactions, changes in interest rates and the effects of other trends, risks and uncertainties.

Use of Estimates in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
Preparation of the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

Fair Value of Derivative Financial Instruments
Derivative financial instruments are recorded at fair value on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets as other assets or other liabilities. The valuation of derivative instruments requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the fair value of the instruments. Fair values of derivatives are estimated by pricing models that consider the forward yield curves and discount rates. The fair value of the Company's forward starting interest rate swap contracts are estimated by pricing models that consider foreign trade rates and discount rates. Such amounts and the recognition of such amounts are subject to significant estimates that may change in the future. See Note 4 for additional information.

New Accounting Pronouncements
Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-03
In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2015-03, "Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs." This standard requires debt issuance costs to be reported in the balance sheet as a direct reduction from the face amount of the note to which it is directly related. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-15, "Interest - Imputation of Interest" which allowed entities to defer and present debt issuance costs related to line-of-credit arrangements as assets, regardless of whether there are any outstanding borrowings on the line-of-credit arrangement.

This standard is effective for the Company beginning on January 1, 2016 with early adoption permitted, on a retrospective basis, wherein the balance sheet of each individual period presented should be adjusted to reflect the period-specific effects of applying the new guidance. Upon transition, the Company is required to comply with the applicable disclosures for a change in an accounting principle. The Company does not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or cash flows.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-08
In April 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-08, “Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity.” This standard changes the requirements for reporting discontinued operations by raising the threshold for a disposal to qualify as a discontinued operation and requires new disclosures of both discontinued operations, and certain other disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation. The standard limits discontinued operations reporting to disposals of components of an entity that represent strategic shifts that have (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results.
This standard is effective for the Company on a prospective basis for annual periods beginning on January 1, 2015 and interim periods within that year. Early adoption was permitted but only for disposals (or classifications as held for sale) that had not been reported in financial statements previously issued. The Company adopted this standard on the effective date of January 1, 2015 and does not expect it to have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or cash flows, but it could have a material impact on the presentation of the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers", a comprehensive new revenue recognition standard that supersedes most existing revenue recognition guidance, including sales of real estate. This standard's core principle is that a company will recognize revenue when it transfers goods or services to customers in amounts that reflect the consideration to which the company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods and services. However, leasing contracts, representing the major source of the Company's revenues, are not within the scope of the new standard and will continue to be accounted for under existing standards.

In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606); Deferral of the Effective Date." This standard is effective for the Company for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017 with early adoption permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that year. The Company has not yet determined the effects on the Consolidated Financial Statements and related notes resulting from the adoption of this new standard.

Reclassifications
Certain amounts in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets have been reclassified for the current period presentation of assets held for sale and related liabilities.

Discontinued Operations
The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-08, “Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity” ("ASU 2014-08") during the first quarter of 2015. As of December 31, 2014, the Company had two properties classified as held for sale and recorded in discontinued operations. One of the properties, which is located in Pennsylvania, was sold in July 2015 and the other property, which is located in Georgia, will remain classified as discontinued operations until the property is sold. See "2015 Dispositions" above. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company reclassified a property to held for sale upon management's decision to sell the property that did not meet the amended criteria under ASU 2014-08 as a discontinued operation. Therefore, the operating results of the property are not included in the table below which reflects the results of operations of the properties included in discontinued operations on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

Note 3. Notes and Bonds Payable
2015 Activity
Third Quarter
On September 1, 2015, upon acquisition of a 52,813 square foot medical office property in Seattle, Washington, the Company assumed a $9.4 million mortgage note payable (excluding a fair value premium adjustment of $0.3 million). The mortgage note payable has a contractual interest rate of 5.00% (effective rate of 4.17%).

In September 2015, the Company received a credit rating upgrade. This upgrade, coupled with another upgrade that the Company received earlier in the year, resulted in a decrease in the spread over LIBOR on outstanding borrowings on the unsecured credit facility due 2017 (decreasing from 1.40% to 1.15%) and the unsecured term loan facility due 2019 (decreasing from 1.45% to 1.20%). In addition, the Company pays a facility fee per annum on the aggregate amount of commitments on its unsecured credit facility due 2017 that decreased from 0.3% to 0.2%. The rate decreases were effective on September 14, 2015.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - Continued

Second Quarter
On April 24, 2015, the Company issued $250.0 million of unsecured senior notes due 2025 (the "Senior Notes due 2025") in a registered public offering. The Senior Notes due 2025 bear interest at 3.875%, payable semi-annually on May 1 and November 1, beginning November 1, 2015, and are due on May 1, 2025, unless redeemed earlier by the Company. The notes were issued at a discount of approximately $0.2 million, which yielded a 3.885% interest rate per annum upon issuance. The Company incurred approximately $2.3 million in debt issuance costs that are included in Other assets, which will be amortized to maturity using the effective interest method. See Note 4 for discussion regarding the concurrent termination of the four forward starting interest rate swaps and the related impact. The Senior Notes due 2025 have various financial covenants that are required to be met on a quarterly and annual basis.

On May 15, 2015, the Company redeemed its unsecured senior notes due 2017 at a redemption price equal to an aggregate of $333.2 million, consisting of outstanding principal of $300.0 million, accrued interest of $6.4 million, and a "make-whole" amount of approximately $26.8 million for the early extinguishment of debt. The unaccreted discount and unamortized costs on these notes of $1.2 million was written off upon redemption. The Company recognized a loss on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $28.0 million related to this redemption.

The following mortgage notes payable were repaid during the second quarter:

On April 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.0% with outstanding principal of $10.2 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 44,169 square foot medical office building located in the Washington State.

On May 4, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.41% with outstanding principal of $16.3 million and accrued interest as of the redemption date of $0.1 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 142,856 square foot medical office building located in Virginia.

On June 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.25% with outstanding principal of $4.0 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 29,423 square foot medical office building located in Texas.

On June 26, 2015, upon acquisition of a 35,558 square foot medical office property in Seattle, Washington, the Company assumed a $9.5 million mortgage note payable (excluding a fair value premium adjustment of $0.2 million). The mortgage note payable has a contractual interest rate of 5.75% (effective rate of 5.07%).

First Quarter
On January 30, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.45% and consisting of outstanding principal of $15.0 million and accrued interest as of the redemption date of $0.1 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 73,548 square foot medical office building located in Washington State.

Subsequent Activity
On October 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing interest at a rate of 5.4% with outstanding principal of $10.6 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 88,408 square foot medical office building located in Virginia.

Note 4. Derivative Financial Instruments
Risk Management Objective of Using Derivatives
In addition to operational risks which arise in the normal course of business, the Company is exposed to economic risks such as interest rate, liquidity, and credit risk. In certain situations, the Company may enter into derivative financial instruments such as interest rate swap and interest rate cap agreements to manage interest rate risk exposure arising from variable rate debt transactions that result in the receipt or payment of future known and uncertain cash amounts, the value of which are determined by interest rates. The Company's objective in using interest rate derivatives is to manage its exposure to interest rate movements on its variable rate debt.

Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk
Interest rate swaps designated as cash flow hedges involve the receipt of variable-rate amounts from a counterparty in exchange for the Company making fixed-rate payments over the life of the agreements without changing the underlying notional amount.

11

Table of Contents
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - Continued

During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company entered into four forward starting interest rate swaps with a total notional value of $225.0 million to hedge the risk of changes in the interest-related cash flows associated with the potential issuance of long-term debt. That debt was issued in April 2015, as discussed in Note 3, and the forward starting interest rate swaps were terminated. As a result, the Company realized a loss at the termination date which was deferred and will be amortized over the term of the Senior Notes due 2025. As of September 30, 2015, the Company did not have any outstanding interest rate derivatives that were designated as cash flow hedges of interest rate risk.
The effective portion of changes in the fair value of derivatives designated as, and that qualify as, cash flow hedges is recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income or loss (“OCI”) and is reclassified into earnings as interest expense in the period that the hedged forecasted transaction affects earnings. The effective portion of the Company’s interest rate swaps that was recorded in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 was as follows (in thousands):

The Company estimates that an additional $0.2 million will be reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive loss as an increase to interest expense over the next 12 months. No gain or loss was recognized related to hedge ineffectiveness or to amounts excluded from effectiveness testing on the Company's cash flow hedges during the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Note 5. Commitments and Contingencies
Legal Proceedings
The Company is, from time to time, involved in litigation arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company is not aware of any pending or threatened litigation that, if resolved against the Company, would have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Redevelopment Activity
The Company is in the process of redeveloping two medical office buildings in Tennessee and began constructing an expansion of one of the buildings in the second quarter of 2015. The Company spent approximately $15.0 million on the redevelopment of these properties through September 30, 2015, including the acquisition of a land parcel for $5.0 million on which the Company is building a parking garage. The total estimated budget of the redevelopment of these properties is expected to be $51.8 million and the project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.

Land Held for Development
In August 2015, the Company acquired 0.38 acres of land and a 7,672 square foot medical office building in Tennessee for $2.0 million. The Company plans to demolish the building and create surface parking. The surface parking will serve as additional parking for the Company's adjacent medical office buildings pending future development.
Casualty Loss
The Company owns a medical office building in Oklahoma that sustained damage from a tornado on May 6, 2015. As of September 30, 2015, the Company estimated its expenditures related to returning the property to its previous operating condition to be approximately $2.4 million. The Company estimates recoveries for restoration costs of approximately $2.3 million. In addition, as of September 30, 2015, the Company estimated that it will receive insurance proceeds related to lost rental revenue of approximately $0.4 million for the period of May 6, 2015 to September 30, 2015. This amount was recognized in rental income on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company believes that it is probable that it will recover any losses due to business interruption and expects all repairs to be completed and tenants to return to occupancy throughout the remainder of the year.

During the first nine months of 2015, the Company declared and paid common stock dividends totaling $0.90 per share. On November 3, 2015, the Company declared a quarterly common stock dividend in the amount of $0.30 per share payable on November 30, 2015 to stockholders of record on November 16, 2015.
Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss)
During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company reclassified $2.5 million from accumulated other comprehensive loss, which is included in stockholders' equity on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, to net income as a result of the termination of the defined benefit pension plan. See Note 7 for more information regarding the termination of the defined benefit pension plan. Also, during the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company recorded an increase to accumulated other comprehensive loss of $1.6 million, as a result of the settlement and payment of forward-starting interest rate swaps. This amount will be reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive loss impacting net income over the 10-year term of the associated senior note issuance. See Note 4 for more information regarding the Company's forward starting interest rate swaps.

The following table represents the changes in balances of each component and the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) related to the Company during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014:

Note 7. Defined Benefit Pension Plan
Effective May 5, 2015, the Company terminated its Executive Retirement Plan. The Company will pay lump sum amounts to the four plan participants. In accordance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code, these amounts will be paid no earlier than twelve and no later than twenty-four months following the termination date. The Second Amendment to the Second Amended and Restated Executive Retirement Plan (the “Termination Amendment”), which provides for the termination of the plan, is incorporated by reference into this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Additional information regarding the Executive Retirement Plan can be found in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the Company’s annual meeting of shareholders held on May 12, 2015.
At September 30, 2015, the Company recognized a total benefit obligation of $19.6 million in connection with the termination of the Executive Retirement Plan and recorded a charge in the second quarter of 2015 of approximately $5.3 million, inclusive of the acceleration of $2.5 million recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets that was being amortized. The charge includes amounts resulting from assumed additional years of service for two plan participants who have not reached age 65 and payments associated with FICA and other tax obligations.
The Company’s chairman and chief executive officer, Mr. David Emery, is the only named executive officer that is a participant under the plan. As a result of the termination of the plan, Mr. Emery will receive a lump sum amount equal to his accrued benefit under the plan of approximately $14.4 million in May 2016. The Company expects that Mr. Emery and the other officer participants will take the settlement payments in Company stock, but they can elect to receive cash.
The preceding summary is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the Termination Amendment and, in the event of any discrepancy, the text of the Termination Amendment shall control.
Net periodic benefit cost recorded related to the Company’s pension plan for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 is detailed in the following table.

Note 8. Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument for which it is practical to estimate that value.

Cash and cash equivalents - The carrying amount approximates fair value.


16

Table of Contents
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements - Continued

Mortgage notes receivable - The fair value of mortgage notes receivable is estimated based either on cash flow analyses at an assumed market rate of interest or at a rate consistent with the rates on mortgage notes acquired by the Company recently.

Borrowings under the unsecured credit facility due 2017 - The carrying amount approximates fair value because the borrowings are based on variable market interest rates.

Senior unsecured notes payable - The fair value of notes and bonds payable is estimated using cash flow analyses, based on the Company’s current interest rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

Mortgage notes payable - The fair value is estimated using cash flow analyses, based on the Company’s current interest rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements.

The table below details the fair values and carrying values for notes and bonds payable and mortgage notes receivable at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
Disclosure Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This report and other materials the Company has filed or may file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as information included in oral statements or other written statements made, or to be made, by management of the Company, contain, or will contain, disclosures that are “forward-looking statements.” Forward-looking statements include all statements that do not relate solely to historical or current facts and can be identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “target,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “continue,” “should,” “could” and other comparable terms. These forward-looking statements are based on the current plans and expectations of management and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the risks, as described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, that could significantly affect the Company’s current plans and expectations and future financial condition and results.

The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Stockholders and investors are cautioned not to unduly rely on such forward-looking statements when evaluating the information presented in the Company’s filings and reports, including, without limitation, estimates and projections regarding the performance of development projects the Company is pursuing.

For a detailed discussion of the Company’s risk factors, please refer to the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014.

The purpose of this Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") is to provide an understanding of the Company's consolidated financial condition, results of operations and cash flows by focusing on the changes in certain key measures from year to year. MD&A is provided as a supplement to, and should be read in conjunction with, the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and accompanying notes. MD&A is organized in the following sections:

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Trends and Matters Impacting Operating Results
Results of Operations

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Sources and Uses of Cash
The Company’s primary sources of cash include rent and interest receipts from its real estate and mortgage portfolio based on contractual arrangements with its tenants, sponsors and borrowers, borrowings under the unsecured credit facility due 2017 ("Unsecured Credit Facility"), proceeds from the sales of real estate properties, the repayment of mortgage notes receivable, and proceeds from public or private debt or equity offerings.

The Company expects to continue to meet its liquidity needs, including funding additional investments, paying dividends, and funding debt service through cash on hand, cash flows from operations, and the cash flow sources described above. The Company had unencumbered real estate assets with a gross book value of approximately $2.9 billion at September 30, 2015, of which a portion could serve as collateral for secured mortgage financing. The Company believes that its liquidity and sources of capital are adequate to satisfy its cash requirements. The Company cannot, however, be certain that these sources of funds will be available at a time and upon terms acceptable to the Company in sufficient amounts to meet its liquidity needs.

Investing Activities
Cash flows provided by investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were approximately $20.4 million. Below is a summary of the significant investing activities.
The Company acquired four real estate properties during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 as listed below:
In January 2015, the Company acquired a 110,679 square foot medical office building in San Jose, California for a purchase price of $39.3 million, including cash consideration of $39.0 million and purchase price credits of $0.3 million. The property is located adjacent to two hospital campuses, Kaiser Permanente, a 106-bed hospital, and Washington Hospital Healthcare System, a 353-bed hospital. Upon acquisition, this property was 97% leased, with leases to the two hospitals comprising 59% of the rentable square feet.
In June 2015, the Company acquired a 35,558 square foot medical office property in Seattle, Washington for a purchase price of $14.0 million, including cash consideration of $4.4 million, a purchase price credit of $0.1 million, and the assumption of debt of $9.5 million (excluding a $0.2 million fair value premium recorded upon acquisition). The mortgage note payable assumed by the Company bears a contractual annual interest rate of 5.75% and matures on March 3, 2020. The property is located on the Catholic Health Initiatives campus of Highline Medical Center, a 177-bed general acute care hospital. Upon acquisition, the property was 93% leased, with leases to the hospital comprising 69% of the rentable square feet.

A Company-financed mortgage note receivable totaling $1.9 million was repaid.
The Company is in the process of redeveloping two medical office buildings in Tennessee and began constructing an expansion of one of the buildings in the second quarter of 2015. The Company spent approximately $15.0 million on the redevelopment of these properties through September 30, 2015, including the acquisition of a land parcel for $5.0 million on which the Company is building a parking garage. The total estimated budget of the redevelopment of these properties is expected to be $51.8 million and the project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
The Company is in the process of redeveloping a medical office building in Alabama, which includes the construction of a parking garage. Construction began in the second quarter of 2015.

The Company acquired 0.38 acres of land and a 7,672 square foot medical office building in Tennessee for $2.0 million. The Company plans to demolish the building and create surface parking. The surface parking will serve as additional parking for the Company's adjacent medical office buildings pending future development.

Subsequent Acquisition
In October 2015, the Company acquired a 33,169 square foot medical office building in Tacoma, Washington for a purchase price of $8.8 million, including cash consideration of $7.5 million. Upon acquisition, this property was 100% leased. As part of this transaction, the Company also acquired a neighboring 12,077 square foot vacant office building that the Company intends to demolish and hold for future development. The buildings are located adjacent to Tacoma General Hospital, a 340-bed hospital owned by MultiCare Health.
In November 2015, the Company acquired a 99,942 square foot medical office building in Oakland, California for a purchase price of $47.0 million, including cash consideration of $43.1 million. Upon acquisition, the property was 97% leased with expirations through 2026.  The building is located on the Sutter Health's Alta Bates Summit Medical Center campus, a 326-bed acute care hospital.

Changes in Debt Structure
On April 24, 2015, the Company issued $250.0 million of unsecured senior notes due 2025 (the "Senior Notes due 2025") in a registered public offering. The Senior Notes due 2025 bear interest at 3.875%, payable semi-annually on May 1 and November 1, beginning November 1, 2015, and are due on May 1, 2025, unless redeemed earlier by the Company. The notes were issued at a discount of approximately $0.2 million, which yielded a 3.885% interest rate per annum upon issuance. The Company incurred approximately $2.3 million in debt issuance costs that are included in Other assets, which will be amortized to maturity. Concurrent with this transaction, the Company settled four forward starting swap agreements for $1.7 million. The Senior Notes due 2025 have various financial covenants that are required to be met on a quarterly and annual basis.
On May 15, 2015, the Company redeemed its unsecured senior notes due 2017 (the "Senior Notes due 2017") at a redemption price equal to an aggregate of $333.2 million, consisting of outstanding principal of $300.0 million, accrued interest of $6.4 million, and a "make-whole" amount of approximately $26.8 million for the early extinguishment of debt. The unaccreted discount and unamortized costs on these notes of $1.2 million was written off upon redemption. The Company recognized a loss on early extinguishment of debt of approximately $28.0 million related to this redemption.
In September 2015, the Company received a credit rating upgrade. This upgrade coupled with another upgrade that the Company received earlier in the year, resulted in a decrease in the spread over LIBOR on outstanding borrowings on the unsecured credit facility due 2017 (decreasing from 1.40% to 1.15%) and the unsecured term loan facility due 2019 (decreasing from 1.45% to 1.20%). In addition, the Company pays a facility fee per annum on the aggregate amount of commitments on its unsecured credit facility due 2017 that decreased from 0.3% to 0.2%. The rate decreases were effective on September 14, 2015.
As of September 30, 2015, the Company's outstanding balance on the Unsecured Credit Facility was $142.0 million, with a remaining borrowing capacity of approximately $558.0 million. The Company’s leverage ratio [debt divided by (debt plus stockholders’ equity less intangible assets plus accumulated depreciation)] was approximately 41.4%.

The following mortgage notes payable were repaid during the nine months ended September 30, 2015:
On January 30, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.45% with outstanding principal of $15.0 million and accrued interest as of the redemption date of $0.1 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 73,548 square foot medical office building located in Washington State.
On April 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.0% with outstanding principal of $10.2 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 44,169 square foot medical office building located in Washington State.
On May 4, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.41% with outstanding principal of $16.3 million and accrued interest as of the redemption date of $0.1 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 142,856 square foot medical office building located in Virginia.
On June 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing an interest rate of 5.25% with outstanding principal of $4.0 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 29,423 square foot medical office building located in Texas.
The following mortgage notes payable were assumed during the nine months ended September 30, 2015:
On June 26, 2015, upon acquisition of a 35,558 square foot medical office property in Seattle, Washington, the Company assumed a $9.5 million mortgage note payable (excluding a fair value premium adjustment of $0.2 million). The mortgage note payable has a contractual interest rate of 5.75% (effective rate of 5.07%).
On September 1, 2015, upon acquisition of a 52,813 square foot medical office property in Seattle, Washington, the Company assumed a $9.4 million mortgage note payable (excluding a fair value premium adjustment of $0.3 million). The mortgage note payable has a contractual interest rate of 5.00% (effective rate of 4.17%).
The Company’s various debt agreements contain certain representations, warranties, and financial and other covenants customary in such debt agreements. Among other things, these provisions require the Company to maintain certain financial ratios and minimum tangible net worth, and impose certain limits on the Company’s ability to incur indebtedness and create liens or encumbrances. At September 30, 2015, the Company was in compliance with the financial covenant provisions under all of its various debt instruments.

Subsequent Activity
On October 1, 2015, the Company repaid in full a mortgage note payable bearing interest at a rate of 5.4% with outstanding principal of $10.6 million. The mortgage note encumbered a 88,408 square foot medical office building located in Virginia.

Table of Contents

Common Stock Issuances
During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company sold 1,494,914 shares of common stock under its at-the-market equity offering program, generating $40.8 million in net proceeds at prices ranging from $25.00 to $29.15 per share (weighted average of $27.69 per share). From January 1, 2015 through October 30, 2015, the Company sold 1,658,335 shares of common stock, generating $45.0 million in net proceeds at prices ranging from $25.00 to $29.15 per share (weighted average of $27.54 per share).

The Company's existing sales agreements with four investment banks allow sales under this program of up to 9,000,000 shares of common stock, with 723,304 authorized shares remaining available to be sold under the these agreements as of October 30, 2015.

Operating Activities
Cash flows provided by operating activities increased from $77.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 to $113.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Several items impact cash flows from operations including, but not limited to, cash generated from property operations, interest payments and the timing related to the payment of invoices and other expenses and receipts of tenant rent.
The Company may from time to time sell additional properties and redeploy cash from property sales and mortgage repayments into new investments. To the extent revenues related to the properties being sold and the mortgages being repaid exceed income from these new investments, the Company's results of operations and cash flows could be adversely affected.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
The Company has no off-balance sheet arrangements that are reasonably likely to have a current or future material effect on the Company’s financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

New Accounting Pronouncements
See Note 1 to the Company's Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements accompanying this report for information on new accounting standards not yet adopted. The Company is still evaluating the impact of these new standards.
Trends and Matters Impacting Operating Results
Management monitors factors and trends important to the Company and the REIT industry to gauge the potential impact on the operations of the Company. In addition to the matters discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, below are some of the factors and trends that management believes may impact future operations of the Company.
Expiring Leases
The Company expects that approximately 10% to 20% of the leases in its multi-tenanted portfolio will expire each year in the ordinary course of business. There are 411 leases that have expired or will expire during 2015, including those in holdover. Approximately 89% of the leases expiring in 2015 are located in buildings on hospital campuses, are distributed throughout the portfolio, and are not concentrated with any one tenant, health system or market area. The Company typically expects 75% to 90% of multi-tenant property leases to renew upon expiration, and the renewals for the first nine months of the year have been within this range.
Operating Expenses
The Company has historically experienced increases in property taxes throughout its portfolio as a result of increasing assessments and tax rates levied across the country. The Company continues its efforts to appeal property tax increases and manage the impact of the increases. In addition, the Company has historically incurred variability in portfolio utilities expense based on seasonality with the first and third quarters usually reflecting greater amounts. The effects of these operating expense increases are mitigated in leases that have provisions for operating expense reimbursement. As of September 30, 2015, 83% of the Company's multi-tenant leased square footage allows for some recovery of operating expenses, with 51% recovering all allowable expenses.
Termination of Defined Benefit Pension Plan
The Company has had a defined benefit pension plan, referred to elsewhere in this report as the "Executive Retirement Plan", since its inception that provides benefits for three founding officers and the surviving spouse of another founding officer. No participants have been added to the plan since 1994. The plan was subject to non-cash valuation fluctuations each year based on changes in mortality assumptions and changing discount rates. Given these fluctuations and the applicability of the plan to only a small number of Company employees, on May 5, 2015, the Company terminated the plan to eliminate a level of volatility and uncertainty to the Company’s financial results. See Note 7 to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information regarding the plan termination and the future payments of benefits to the plan participants.

Casualty Loss
The Company owns a medical office building in Oklahoma that sustained damage from a tornado on May 6, 2015. As of September 30, 2015, the Company estimated its expenditures related to returning the property to its previous operating condition to be approximately $2.4 million. The Company estimates recoveries for restoration costs of approximately $2.3 million. In addition, as of September 30, 2015, the Company estimated that it will receive insurance proceeds related to lost rental revenue of approximately $0.4 million for the period of May 6, 2015 to September 30, 2015. This amount was recognized in rental income on the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company believes that it is probable that it will recover any losses due to business interruption and expects all repairs to be completed and tenants to return to occupancy throughout the remainder of the year.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Management believes that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measurement. However, management considers certain non-GAAP financial measures to be useful supplemental measures of the Company's operating performance. A non-GAAP financial measure is generally defined as one that purports to measure historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows, but excludes or includes amounts that would not be so adjusted in the most comparable GAAP measure. Set forth below are descriptions of the non-GAAP financial measures management considers relevant to the Company's business and useful to investors, as well as reconciliations of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein are not necessarily identical to those presented by other real estate companies due to the fact that not all real estate companies use the same definitions. These measures should not be considered as alternatives to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), as indicators of the Company's financial performance, or as alternatives to cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as measures of the Company's liquidity, nor are these measures necessarily indicative of sufficient cash flow to fund all of the Company's needs. Management believes that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of the Company's consolidated historical operating results, these measures should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and other financial data included elsewhere in this report.

Funds from Operations
Funds from operations (“FFO”) and FFO per share are operating performance measures adopted by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines FFO as the most commonly accepted and reported measure of a REIT’s operating performance equal to “net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization related to real estate properties, leasing commission amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.” The Company follows the NAREIT definition in calculating and presenting FFO and FFO per share.

Management believes FFO and FFO per share to be supplemental measures of a REIT’s performance because they provide an understanding of the operating performance of the Company’s properties without giving effect to certain significant non-cash items, primarily depreciation and amortization expense. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. However, real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions. The Company believes that by excluding the effect of depreciation, amortization and gains or losses from sales of real estate, all of which are based on historical costs and which may be of limited relevance in evaluating current performance, FFO and FFO per share can facilitate comparisons of operating performance between periods. The Company reports FFO and FFO per share because these measures are observed by management to also be the predominant measures used by the REIT industry and by industry analysts to evaluate REITs and because FFO per share is consistently reported, discussed, and compared by research analysts in their notes and publications about REITs. For these reasons, management has deemed it appropriate to disclose and discuss FFO and FFO per share. However, FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to common stockholders as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity.

FFO for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 compared to the same periods in 2014 was primarily impacted by the various acquisitions and dispositions during the period, the effects of capital market transactions and the results of operations of the portfolio from period to period.

FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was negatively impacted by $28.0 million, or $0.28 per common share, as a result of the loss on extinguishment of debt and $5.3 million, or $0.05 per common share, as a result of the termination of the Executive Retirement Plan.

______
(1)
In the third quarter of 2015, the Company began including an add-back for leasing commission amortization in order to provide a better basis for comparing its results of operations with those of others in the industry, consistent with the NAREIT definition of FFO. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, funds from operations per basic and diluted common share was previously reported as $0.38 and $0.37, respectively. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, funds from operations per basic and diluted common share was previously reported as $1.12 and $1.10, respectively.

Same Store Net Operating Income
Net operating income ("NOI") and same store NOI are non-GAAP historical financial measures of performance. Management considers same store NOI a supplemental measure because it allows investors, analysts and Company management to measure unlevered property-level operating results. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (property operating revenue, single-tenant net lease revenue, and property lease guaranty revenue) less property operating expenses related specifically to the property portfolio. NOI excludes straight-line rent, general and administrative expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization, gains and losses from property sales, property management fees and other revenues and expenses not specifically related to the property portfolio. Same store NOI is historical and not necessarily indicative of future results.

The following table reflects the Company's same store NOI for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

Properties included in the same store analysis are generally stabilized properties that have been included in operations and are consistently reported as leased and stabilized properties for the duration of the year-over-year comparison period presented. Accordingly, properties that were recently acquired or disposed of, and properties classified as held for sale are excluded from the same store analysis. In addition, the Company excludes properties that have less than 60% occupancy or that experience a loss of occupancy over 30% in a single quarter that is expected to continue for a period of at least two quarters.
