Spirit Realty Capital invested $32.4 million in eight real estate properties during the third quarter of 2012, as compared to $6.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. New investments in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $86.2 million, representing 58 new properties. New investments in the first nine months of 2011 totaled $6.8 million.
As of September 30, 2012, the Company’s gross investment in real estate and mortgage and equipment loans totaled $3.6 billion, of which substantially all was invested in 1,105 properties which were 98.4% occupied. The Company’s properties are generally leased under long-term, triple net leases, with a weighted average remaining maturity of approximately 11 years. Approximately 63% of the Company’s annual rent (defined as annualized third quarter 2012 rent) is contributed from properties under master leases and 96% of all leases provide for rental increases.
The real estate portfolio is diversified geographically throughout 47 states and among various property types. Only one state accounted for more than 10% of the total value of the real estate portfolio. Spirit’s three largest property types at September 30, 2012 were general and discount retail (30%), restaurants (19%), and specialty retail (8%).
On September 25, 2012, the Company completed its IPO of 29 million common shares which generated net proceeds of $394.7 million. On October 1, 2012, the underwriters exercised in full their over-allotment option to purchase an additional 4.35 million shares, generating an additional $60.7 million in net proceeds, for a total of $455.4 million. A portion of the IPO proceeds were used to repay $399 million of borrowings outstanding under the Term Note. The remaining $330 million outstanding under this Term Note was converted into 24.2 million shares of common stock.
Concurrent with the IPO, Spirit Realty Capital entered into a $100 million secured revolving credit facility with an initial term of three years. Amounts available for borrowing are subject to the maintenance of a minimum ratio of the total value of the unencumbered properties as well as complying with other customary financial covenants. There were no amounts borrowed under the line at September 30, 2012.
Fourth Quarter 2012 Estimates
The Company estimates FFO per share for the fourth quarter of 2012 should range from $0.32 to $0.34 and AFFO should range from $0.38 and $0.40 per share, in each case before any gains or losses related to capital transactions. This FFO guidance equates to net (loss) earnings before any gains or losses from the sale of real estate, impairment charges and other items related to capital tranasctions of ($0.02) to $0.00 per share plus $0.34 per share of expected real estate depreciation and amortization.
The Company believes estimates of FFO and AFFO per share for the full year 2012 are less meaningful as a result of the costs and change in shares associated with the IPO and Term Note extinguishment occurring at the end of the third quarter.
This guidance is based on current plans, assumptions, and estimates and is subject to the risks and uncertainties more fully described in this press release and the Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Company estimates that 2013 FFO per share should range from $1.35 to $1.40 and AFFO should range from $1.60 to $1.65 per share. This FFO guidance equates to net (loss) earnings before any gains or losses from the sale of real estate and impairment charges of ($0.01) to $0.04 per share plus $1.36 per share of expected real estate depreciation and amortization.
The guidance is based on current plans, assumptions, and estimates and is subject to the risks and uncertainties more fully described in this press release and the Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

We calculate FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. FFO represents net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding real estate-related depreciation and amortization, impairment charges and net losses (gains) on the disposition of assets. FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure. We use FFO as a supplemental performance measure because we believe that FFO is beneficial to investors as a starting point in measuring our operational performance. Specifically, in excluding real estate-related depreciation and amortization, gains and losses from property dispositions and impairment charges, which do not relate to or are not indicative of operating performance, FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other equity REITs. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and does not capture the changes in the value of our properties that result from use or market conditions, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited. In addition, other equity REITs may not calculate FFO as we do, and, accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to such other equity REITs’ FFO. Accordingly, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income (loss) as a measure of our performance. FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions or service indebtedness. FFO also should not be used as a supplement to or substitute for cash flow from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of net loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) to FFO is included in the financial information accompanying this release.
Adjusted FFO represents net income (loss) adjusted to eliminate the impact of real estate-related depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, gains/losses on sales of real estate, charges associated with the extinguishment of the Term Note, litigation costs, non-cash interest expense, non-cash revenues, and non-cash stock-based compensation expense. We believe that it is useful to investors to exclude the effect of these charges, costs and other income (expense) because these items are not reflective of ongoing operational items. A reconciliation of net loss (computed in accordance with GAAP) to AFFO is included in the financial information accompanying this release.
