The Company’s FFO and Core FFO for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 are calculated as follows: Three Months EndedTwelve Months Ended9/30/20149/30/20139/30/20149/30/2013Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders$3,053,000$1,712,000$11,238,000$12,788,000Depreciation Expense (including Discontinued Operations)4,129,0003,281,00015,909,00012,877,000Amortization of Intangible Assets338,000361,0001,348,0001,544,000Gain on Sale of Investment Property—(346,000)FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders7,520,0005,354,00028,495,00026,863,000Acquisition Costs19,00055,000482,000515,000Core FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$7,539,000$5,409,000$28,977,000$27,378,000 The Company’s Core FFO, excluding the net Gain on Securities Transactions for the three and twelve months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 are calculated as follows: Three Months EndedTwelve Months Ended9/30/20149/30/20139/30/20149/30/2013Core FFO Attributable to Common Shareholders$7,539,000$5,409,000$28,977,000$27,378,000Less: Gain on Sale of Securities Transactions, net684,000157,0002,167,0007,133,000Core FFO, excluding net Gain on Sale of Securities   Transactions Attributable to Common Shareholders$6,855,000$5,252,000$26,810,000$20,245,000 The following are the Cash Flows provided (used) by Operating, Investing and Financing Activities for the twelve months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013:Twelve Months Ended09/30/201409/30/2013Operating Activities$34,775,000$27,515,000Investing Activities(131,794,000)(60,351,000)Financing Activities105,090,00020,589,000 To view the original version on PR Newswire, visit:http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/monmouth-real-estate-investment-corporation-reports-results-for-the-fiscal-year-ended-and-the-fourth-quarter-ended-september-30-2014-300008053.htmlSOURCE Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation
