ACQUIRED $327.6 MILLION OF DEBT INVESTMENTS IN GENESIS HEALTHCARE

In September and October 2010, we acquired debt investments in Genesis HealthCare (“Genesis”) with an aggregate face amount of $327.6 million. The investments represent a portion of the $1.671 billion of debt incurred with the $2.0 billion acquisition of Genesis in July 2007. The $327.6 million investment consists of two participation interests in the senior term loan with an aggregate face amount of $277.6 million that were purchased for $249.9 million and a $50 million participation interest in the secured mezzanine debt that was purchased for $40 million. Each of these participation interests was acquired from major commercial banks.

The senior loan bears interest on the face amount at LIBOR plus a spread of 4.75%, increasing to 5.75% by maturity, with a current LIBOR floor of 1.50% increasing to 2.50% by maturity. It matures in September 2014 and is prepayable at any time without premium. The senior loan is a part of a $1.3 billion debt facility secured by all of Genesis’ assets. We expect to achieve an internal rate of return (“IRR”) on our senior loan investment of 10.5% if the senior loan is paid in full at maturity.

The mezzanine debt bears interest on the face amount at LIBOR plus a spread of 7.50% and matures in September 2014. In addition, the mezzanine debt requires payment of a termination fee, HCP’s share of which is currently $2 million, increasing to a maximum of $5 million if the mezzanine debt is paid off at maturity. The mezzanine debt is a part of a $375 million mezzanine debt facility that is subordinate to the senior loan. Security for the mezzanine debt is provided by an indirect pledge of the equity ownership in the assets encumbered by the senior loan. We expect to achieve an IRR on our mezzanine debt investment of 18% if the mezzanine debt is paid in full at maturity.

Genesis is one of the nation's largest long-term care providers with over 200 skilled nursing centers and assisted living residences in 13 eastern states. Genesis also supplies contract rehabilitation therapy to over 1,100 healthcare providers in 28 states and the District of Columbia.

COMPLETED TRANSITION OF 27 SUNRISE-MANAGED COMMUNITIES

On November 1, 2010 we exercised our rights to terminate management contracts relating to 27 senior housing communities previously operated by Sunrise Senior Living, Inc. (“Sunrise”). These senior housing communities are now master-leased to and operated by Emeritus Corporation (“Emeritus”) and represent all of the communities with respect to which we acquired termination rights as a part of the previously announced August 2010 settlement agreement with Sunrise. The successful transition resulted in us paying the remaining $10 million portion of the $50 million total settlement consideration to Sunrise.

The leases with Emeritus provide for an increased lease payment in the first year to $30.3 million, with a compound annual growth rate for the first five years of 13.9% and the greater of CPI or 3.0% thereafter, resulting in an expected IRR in excess of 40%.

OTHER INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS

During the quarter ended September 30, 2010, we invested $99 million consisting of: (i) $63 million of real estate acquisitions; and (ii) $36 million of construction and other capital projects (primarily in our life science segment).

During the quarter ended September 30, 2010, we sold investments of $83 million as follows: (i) $73 million of debt investments (including $65.4 million of HCA bonds) and recognized gains of $5.6 million; and (ii) three skilled nursing facilities for $10 million and recognized gain on sales of real estate of $4 million. Subsequently, in October 2010, we sold our remaining bond investments in HCA and one other issuer for $102 million and recognized additional gains of $8 million.

KENDALL K. YOUNG NAMED HCP EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT

Kendall Young joins HCP to facilitate strategic growth initiatives in our senior housing segment, including the potential creation of structures permitted by the REIT Investment Diversification and Empowerment Act of 2007 (“RIDEA”).

Mr. Young was previously affiliated with Strategic Value Partners in Greenwich, Connecticut, where he was a Managing Director. In his position as Global Head of Asset Management, Mr. Young was responsible for managing all aspects of a large commercial property portfolio. Prior to his affiliation with Strategic Value Partners, Mr. Young held Managing Director positions with Merrill Lynch and GE Capital Real Estate, where he originated transactions and managed large U.S. and international portfolios of real estate equity and debt investments.

OTHER EVENTS

On October 12, 2010, we concluded that our 35% interest in HCP Ventures II, an unconsolidated joint venture that owns 25 senior housing properties leased by Horizon Bay Communities or certain of its affiliates, was impaired. We recorded a non-cash impairment charge related to our investment in HCP Ventures II of $72 million, or $0.23 per share, during the third quarter.

On November 1, 2010, we received $46 million in proceeds, including an $11 million prepayment premium, upon the early repayment of a mortgage loan receivable that was secured by a hospital. This loan had an original maturity of January 2016 and carried an interest rate of 8.5%.

DIVIDEND

On October 28, 2010, we announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on our common stock of $0.465 per share. The dividend will be paid on November 23, 2010 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 8, 2010.

OUTLOOK

For the full year 2010, we expect FFO applicable to common shares to range between $2.18 and $2.24 per diluted share, before giving effect to impairments, net of recoveries; FFO applicable to common shares to range between $1.99 and $2.05 per diluted share; and net income applicable to common shares to range between $0.96 and $1.02 per diluted share. These estimates do not include possible future gains or losses, the impact on operating results from possible future acquisitions or dispositions, or possible future impairments or recoveries.

(1)     The Company believes FFO applicable to common shares, diluted FFO applicable to common shares, FFO, before the impact of impairments, recoveries and litigation provision, and basic and diluted FFO per common share are important supplemental measures of operating performance for a real estate investment trust. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets utilizes straight-line depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen and fallen with market conditions, presentations of operating results for a real estate investment trust that uses historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. The term FFO was designed by the real estate investment trust industry to address this issue.
 
FFO is defined as net income applicable to common shares (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”)), excluding gains or losses from real estate dispositions, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, with adjustments for joint ventures. Adjustments for joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income. The Company’s computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other real estate investment trusts that do not define the term in accordance with the current National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts’ (“NAREIT”) definition or that have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from the Company.
 
In addition, the Company presents FFO, before the impact of impairments, recoveries and litigation provision. Management believes FFO, before the impact of impairments, recoveries and litigation provision, is useful to both the Company and its investors. This measure is a modification of the NAREIT definition of FFO and should not be used as an alternative to net income.

(1)   The Company believes Net Operating Income from Continuing Operations (“NOI”) provides investors relevant and useful information because it measures the operating performance of the Company’s real estate at the property level on an unleveraged basis. NOI is used to evaluate the operating performance of real estate properties and SPP. The Company uses NOI and NOI, as adjusted, to make decisions about resource allocations, to assess and compare property level performance, and evaluate SPP. The Company believes that net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI. NOI should not be viewed as an alternative measure of operating performance to net income as defined by GAAP since it does not reflect the aforementioned excluded items. Further, NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate investment trusts, as they may use different methodologies for calculating NOI.
 
NOI is defined as rental revenues, including tenant reimbursements and income from direct financing leases, less property level operating expenses. NOI excludes interest income, investment management fee income, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, general and administrative expenses, litigation provision, impairments, impairment recoveries, other income, net, income tax expenses, equity income from unconsolidated joint ventures and discontinued operations. NOI, as adjusted, is calculated as NOI eliminating the effects of straight-line rents, DFL interest accretion, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles, and lease termination fees. NOI, as adjusted, is sometimes referred to as “adjusted NOI” or “cash basis NOI.”
 
(2) Same property statistics allow management to evaluate the performance of the Company’s real estate portfolio under a consistent population, which eliminates the changes in the composition of our portfolio of properties. The Company identifies its SPP as stabilized properties that are, and remained, in operations for the duration of the year-over-year comparison periods presented. Accordingly, it takes a stabilized property a minimum of 12 months in operations to be included in the Company’s same property portfolio. SPP NOI excludes certain non-property specific operating expenses that are allocated to each operating segment on a consolidated basis.
