BioMed Realty Trust Reports Third Quarter 2004 Financial Results

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 11, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- BioMed Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE:BMR) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2004, representing its first reporting period as a public company since the completion of its initial public offering in August.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2004 was $1.8 million, or $0.06 per basic and diluted share. Funds from operations (FFO) for the quarter ended September 30, 2004 were $3.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. Adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) for the quarter ended September 30, 2004 were $4.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share. Management does not believe that historical financial results are indicative of the company's expected future operating performance, since past results are not representative of full-quarter amounts, and year-to-year financial comparisons with the predecessor company are not meaningful given the predecessor's limited operations. The weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding was 30,673,883 and 30,754,840, respectively, for the quarter ended September 30, 2004.

FFO and AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used as standards in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies. A complete reconciliation containing adjustments from GAAP net income to FFO and AFFO is included at the end of this release.

"The third quarter was a milestone period for BioMed Realty, both in terms of the company's successful initial public offering, generating net proceeds of $429.0 million, and our ability to complete the transactions under contract at the time of our offering," said Alan D. Gold, president and chief executive officer of BioMed Realty Trust.

Gold noted that, during the quarter, BioMed Realty completed the acquisition of 13 properties described in the company's initial public offering prospectus for 2.9 million limited partnership units in the company's operating partnership, cash consideration of $400.2 million using net proceeds from the offering and the assumption of $43.0 million of debt.

The 13 properties, located in San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Pennsylvania and New York, consist of 29 buildings with 2.3 million rentable square feet of life science and laboratory real estate that were 94.7 percent leased as of September 30, 2004. With the completion of the additional acquisitions of San Diego Science Center and Ardentech Court subsequent to the end of the quarter, as announced earlier this week, BioMed Realty will own 15 properties, consisting of 31 buildings with 2.5 million rentable square feet. The company expects to acquire the third building on the Bridgeview property in March 2005, as a result of the seller exercising its right to extend the closing date to facilitate a like-kind exchange. The company also owns undeveloped land that it estimates can support up to 548,000 square feet of laboratory and office space.

"These acquisitions establish a solid foundation for BioMed Realty and position the company to capitalize on the tremendous near- and long-term market opportunities within the life science real estate market, while supporting our investment return criteria," Gold said.

He noted that during the quarter the company obtained a $100.0 million revolving unsecured credit facility which will be used to finance acquisitions and for other corporate purposes.

The company also declared its first dividend of $0.1497 per share of common stock for the partial period from the closing of the company's initial public offering through the end of the third quarter, based on a $0.27 per share distribution rate for the full quarter. As previously announced, the dividend was paid on October 15, 2004 to stockholders of record as of September 30, 2004.

     We present funds from operations, or FFO, because we consider it
     an important supplemental measure of our operating performance
     and believe it is frequently used by securities analysts,
     investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of
     REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results.
     FFO is intended to exclude GAAP historical cost depreciation and
     amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes
     that the value of real estate assets diminishes ratably over
     time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or
     fallen with market conditions. Because FFO excludes depreciation
     and amortization unique to real estate, gains and losses from
     property dispositions and extraordinary items, it provides a
     performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects
     the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental
     rates, operating costs, development activities and interest
     costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net
     income. We compute FFO in accordance with standards established
     by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real
     Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, in its March 1995 White
     Paper (as amended in November 1999 and April 2002). As defined by
     NAREIT, FFO represents net income (computed in accordance with
     GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus
     real estate related depreciation and amortization (excluding
     amortization of loan origination costs) and after adjustments for
     unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Our computation
     may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by
     other equity REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to
     such other REITs. Further, FFO does not represent amounts
     available for management's discretionary use because of needed
     capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations, or
     other commitments and uncertainties. FFO should not be considered
     as an alternative to net income (loss) (computed in accordance
     with GAAP) as an indicator of our financial performance or to
     cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with
     GAAP) as an indicator of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of
     funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to
     pay dividends or make distributions.

     We calculate adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, by adding
     to FFO (a) amounts received pursuant to master lease agreements
     on certain properties, which are not included in rental income
     for GAAP purposes, and (b) non-cash operating revenues and
     expenses. Management uses AFFO as a supplemental operating
     measure because, when compared year over year, it assesses our
     ability to fund dividend and distribution requirements from our
     operating activities. We also believe that, as a widely
     recognized measure of the operations of REITs, AFFO will be used
     by investors as a basis to assess our ability to fund dividend
     payments in comparison to other REITs. Other equity REITs may not
     calculate AFFO in a consistent manner. Accordingly, our AFFO may
     not be comparable to other equity REITs' AFFO. AFFO should be
     considered only as a supplement to net income computed in
     accordance with GAAP as a measure of our operations.
