Gladstone Commercial Corporation

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

1. Organization, Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies

Gladstone Commercial Corporation, is a real estate investment trust, or REIT, that was incorporated under the General Corporation Laws of the State of Maryland on February 14, 2003 primarily for the purpose of investing in and owning net leased industrial, commercial and retail real property and selectively making long-term industrial and commercial mortgage loans. Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, our business is managed by Gladstone Management Corporation, a Delaware corporation, or the Adviser.

Subsidiaries

We conduct substantially all of our operations through a subsidiary, Gladstone Commercial Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership, or the Operating Partnership. As we currently own all of the general and limited partnership interests of the Operating Partnership through two of our subsidiaries, GCLP Business Trust I and II, the financial position and results of operations of the Operating Partnership are consolidated with those of the Company.

Gladstone Commercial Lending, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, or Gladstone Commercial Lending, a subsidiary of ours, was created to conduct all operations related to real estate mortgage loans of the Company. As the Operating Partnership currently owns all of the membership interests of Gladstone Commercial Lending, the financial position and results of operations of Gladstone Commercial Lending are consolidated with those of the Company.

Gladstone Commercial Advisers, Inc., a Delaware corporation, or Commercial Advisers, and a subsidiary of the Company, is a taxable REIT subsidiary, or TRS, which was created to collect any non-qualifying income related to our real estate portfolio. There has been no such income earned to date. Since the Company owns 100% of the voting securities of Commercial Advisers, the financial position and results of operations of Commercial Advisers are consolidated with those of the Company.

GCLP Business Trust I and GCLP Business Trust II, each a subsidiary and business trust of the Company, were formed under the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on December 28, 2005. We transferred our 99% limited partnership interest in the Operating Partnership to GCLP Business Trust I in exchange for 100 shares of the trust. Gladstone Commercial Partners, LLC transferred its 1% general partnership interest in the Operating Partnership to GCLP Business Trust II in exchange for 100 trust shares.

All further references herein to “we,” “our,” “us” and the “Company” mean Gladstone Commercial Corporation and its consolidated subsidiaries, except where it is made clear that the term means only Gladstone Commercial Corporation.

Interim Financial Information

Our interim financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, for interim financial information and pursuant to the requirements for reporting on Form 10-Q and in accordance with Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, certain disclosures accompanying annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP are omitted. The year-end balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. In the opinion of our management, all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring accruals, necessary for the fair statement of financial statements for the interim period have been included. The interim financial statements and notes thereto should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 19, 2013. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for other interim periods or for the full fiscal year.

Table of Contents

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.

Reclassifications

Certain line items on the condensed consolidated statements of operations and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows from prior year’s financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on previously reported net income.

Real Estate and Lease Intangibles

We record investments in real estate at cost and capitalize improvements and replacements when they extend the useful life or improve the efficiency of the asset. We expense costs of repairs and maintenance as such costs are incurred. We compute depreciation using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life or 39 years for buildings and improvements, 5 to 7 years for equipment and fixtures, and the shorter of the useful life or the remaining lease term for tenant improvements and leasehold interests.

Certain of our acquisitions involve sale-leaseback transactions with newly-originated leases, which we account for as asset acquisitions under Accounting Standards Codification, or ASC, 805, “Business Combinations.” In the case of an asset acquisition, we will capitalize the transaction costs incurred in connection with the acquisition. Other of our acquisitions involve the acquisition of properties that are already being operated as rental property, which we will generally consider to be a business combination under ASC 805. Business combination guidance is generally applicable to us when properties are acquired with leases in place at the time of acquisition. When an acquisition is considered a business combination, ASC 805 requires that the purchase price of real estate be allocated to the acquired tangible assets and liabilities, consisting of land, building, tenant improvements, long-term debt and identified intangible assets and liabilities, typically the value of above-market and below-market leases, the value of in-place leases, the value of unamortized lease origination costs and the value of tenant relationships, based in each case on their fair values. ASC 805 also requires that all expenses related to the acquisition be expensed as incurred, rather than capitalized into the cost of the acquisition.

Management’s estimates of fair value are made using methods similar to those used by independent appraisers (e.g. discounted cash flow analysis). Factors considered by management in its analysis include an estimate of carrying costs during hypothetical expected lease-up periods considering current market conditions and costs to execute similar leases. We also consider information obtained about each property as a result of our pre-acquisition due diligence, marketing and leasing activities in estimating the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities acquired. In estimating carrying costs, management also includes real estate taxes, insurance and other operating expenses and estimates of lost rentals at market rates during the hypothetical expected lease-up periods, which primarily range from 9 to 18 months, depending on specific local market conditions. Management also estimates costs to execute similar leases, including leasing commissions, legal and other related expenses to the extent that such costs are not already incurred in connection with a new lease origination as part of the transaction.

We allocate purchase price to the fair value of the tangible assets of an acquired property by valuing the property as if it were vacant. The “as-if-vacant” value is allocated to land, building and tenant improvements based on management’s determination of the relative fair values of these assets. Real estate depreciation expense on these tangible assets was $3.6 million and $7.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and $2.9 million and $5.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

Table of Contents

Above-market and below-market in-place lease fair values for owned properties are recorded based on the present value (using an interest rate which reflects the risks associated with the leases acquired) of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases and (ii) management’s estimate of fair market lease rates for the corresponding in-place leases, measured over a period equal to the remaining non-cancelable term of the lease. When determining the non-cancelable term of the lease, we evaluate if fixed-rate renewal options, if any, should be included. The capitalized above-market lease values, included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as part of deferred rent receivable, are amortized as a reduction of rental income over the remaining non-cancelable terms of the respective leases. Total amortization related to above-market lease values was $0.1 million for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively. Total amortization related to above-market lease values was $0.1 million and $0.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. The capitalized below-market lease values, included in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets as part of deferred rent liability, are amortized as an increase to rental income over the remaining non-cancelable terms of the respective leases. Total amortization related to below-market lease values was $0.1 million and $0.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and $0.2 million and $0.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

The total amount of the remaining intangible assets acquired, which consists of in-place lease values, unamortized lease origination costs, and customer relationship intangible values, are allocated based on management’s evaluation of the specific characteristics of each tenant’s lease and our overall relationship with that respective tenant. Characteristics to be considered by management in determining these values include the nature and extent of our existing business relationships with the tenant, growth prospects for developing new business with the tenant, the tenant’s credit quality and our expectations of lease renewals (including those existing under the terms of the lease agreement), among other factors.

The value of in-place leases and lease origination costs are amortized to expense over the remaining term of the respective leases, which generally range from 10 to 15 years. The value of customer relationship intangibles, which is the benefit to us resulting from the likelihood of an existing tenant renewing its lease, are amortized to expense over the remaining term and any anticipated renewal periods in the respective leases, but in no event does the amortization period for intangible assets exceed the remaining depreciable life of the building. Should a tenant terminate its lease, the unamortized portion of the above-market and below-market lease values, in-place lease values, lease origination costs and customer relationship intangibles will be immediately charged to the related income or expense. Total amortization expense related to these intangible assets was $1.6 million and $3.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and $1.1 million and $2.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

Impairment

We account for the impairment of real estate, including intangible assets, in accordance with ASC 360-10-35, “Property, Plant, and Equipment,” which requires us to periodically review the carrying value of each property to determine if circumstances indicate impairment of the carrying value of the investment exists or that depreciation periods should be modified. If circumstances indicate the possibility of impairment, we prepare a projection of the undiscounted future cash flows, without interest charges, of the specific property and determine if the carrying value of the investment in such property is recoverable. In performing the analysis, we consider such factors as the tenants’ payment history and financial condition, the likelihood of lease renewal, business conditions in the industry in which the tenants operate and whether there are indications that the fair value of the real estate has decreased. If the carrying amount is more than the aggregate undiscounted future cash flows, we would recognize an impairment loss to the extent the carrying amount exceeds the estimated fair value of the property.

We evaluate our entire portfolio of properties each quarter for any impairment indicators and perform an impairment analysis on those select properties that have an indication of impairment. We performed this evaluation and analysis and concluded that none of our properties were impaired as of June 30, 2013; however, we determined that our property located in South Hadley, Massachusetts may become impaired in the future. The lease on this property expires in January 2014 and we are currently negotiating a potential lease extension with the existing tenant. There is a possibility we would have to impair the property later in 2013 if we do not negotiate a lease extension on this building or find a replacement tenant.

We will continue to monitor our portfolio for any indicators of impairment and there have been no impairments recognized on our real estate assets since inception.

Deferred Financing Costs

Deferred financing costs consist of costs incurred to obtain financing, including legal fees, origination fees and administrative fees. The costs are deferred and amortized using the straight-line method, which approximates the effective interest method, over the term of the secured financing. We made payments of $0.1 million and $0.2 million for deferred financing costs during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and payments of $0.6 million and $3.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively. The increase in payments incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2012 were primarily related to the issuance of our 7.125% Series C Cumulative Term Preferred Stock, or the Term Preferred Stock, discussed in further detail in Note 6 “Mandatorily Redeemable Preferred Stock.” Total amortization expense related to deferred financing costs is included in interest expense and was $0.4 million and $0.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and $0.4 million and $0.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

Revenue Recognition

Rental revenue includes rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of its respective lease reported evenly over the non-cancelable term of the lease. Most of our leases contain rental increases at specified intervals. We recognize such revenues on a straight-line basis. Deferred rent receivable in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet includes the cumulative difference between rental revenue, as recorded on a straight-line basis, and rents received from the tenants in accordance with the lease terms, along with the capitalized above-market in-place lease values of certain acquired properties. Accordingly, we determine, in our judgment, to what extent the deferred rent receivable applicable to each specific tenant is collectable. We review deferred rent receivable, as it relates to straight line rents, on a quarterly basis and take into consideration the tenant’s payment history, the financial condition of the tenant, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant operates and economic conditions in the geographic area in which the property is located. In the event that the collectability of deferred rent with respect to any given tenant is in doubt, we record an allowance for uncollectable accounts or record a direct write-off of the specific rent receivable. No such reserves or direct write-offs have been recorded to date.

Tenant recovery revenue includes payments from tenants as reimbursements for franchise taxes, management fees, insurance, and ground lease payments. We recognize tenant recovery revenue in the same periods that we incur the related expenses.

Asset Retirement Obligations

ASC 410, “Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligation,” requires an entity to recognize a liability for a conditional asset retirement obligation when incurred if the liability can be reasonably estimated. ASC 410-20-20 clarifies that the term “Conditional Asset Retirement Obligation” refers to a legal obligation (pursuant to existing laws or by contract) to perform an asset retirement activity in which the timing and/or method of settlement are conditional on a future event that may or may not be within the control of the entity. ASC 410-20-25-6 clarifies when an entity would have sufficient information to reasonably estimate the fair value of an asset retirement obligation. We have accrued a liability and corresponding increase to the cost of the related properties for disposal related to all properties constructed prior to 1985 that have, or may have, asbestos present in the building. The liabilities are accreted over the life of the leases for the respective properties. There were no liabilities accrued during the six months ended June 30, 2013. There were $0.4 million in liabilities accrued in connection with acquisitions for the six months ended June 30, 2012. We recorded expenses of $0.03 million and $0.06 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and recorded expenses of $0.04 million and $0.08 million during the three and six months ended June 30 2012, respectively, which are included as part of our general and administrative expenses on our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Costs of future expenditures for obligations are discounted to

their present value. The aggregate undiscounted obligation on all properties is $9.2 million and the discount rates used in the calculations ranges from 2.5% to 7.6%. We do not expect to make any payments in conjunction with these obligations in each of the next five years.

Comprehensive Income

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, comprehensive income equaled net income; therefore, a separate statement of comprehensive income is not included in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.

2. Related-Party Transactions

Gladstone Management and Gladstone Administration

We are externally managed pursuant to contractual arrangements with our Adviser and Gladstone Administration, LLC, or the Administrator, which collectively employ all of our personnel and pay their salaries, benefits, and general expenses directly. We have an advisory agreement with our Adviser, or the Advisory Agreement, and an administration agreement with our Administrator, or the Administration Agreement. The management and administrative services and fees under the Advisory and Administration Agreements are described below. As of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, $0.9 million and $1.2 million, respectively, was due to our Adviser and Administrator.

Advisory Agreement

The Advisory Agreement provides for an annual base management fee equal to 2% of our total stockholders’ equity, less the recorded value of any preferred stock, or common stockholders’ equity, and an incentive fee based on funds from operations, or FFO. For both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, we recorded a base management fee of $0.4 million and $0.8 million, respectively.

For purposes of calculating the incentive fee, FFO includes any realized capital gains and capital losses, less any distributions paid on preferred stock and senior common stock, but FFO does not include any unrealized capital gains or losses. The incentive fee rewards the Adviser if our quarterly FFO, before giving effect to any incentive fee, or pre-incentive fee FFO, exceeds 1.75%, or 7% annualized, or the hurdle rate, of total common stockholders’ equity. The Adviser receives 100% of the amount of the pre-incentive fee FFO that exceeds the hurdle rate, but is less than 2.1875% of our common stockholders’ equity. The Adviser also receives an incentive fee of 20% of the amount of our pre-incentive fee FFO that exceeds 2.1875% of common stockholders’ equity.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, we recorded an incentive fee of $0.9 million and $1.9 million, respectively, offset by credits related to unconditional, voluntary and irrevocable waivers issued by the Adviser of $0.9 million and $1.5 million, respectively, resulting in a net incentive fee for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, of $0.0 million and $0.4 million, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we recorded an incentive fee of $0.8 million and $1.7 million, respectively, offset by credits related to unconditional, voluntary and irrevocable waivers issued by the Adviser of $0.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, resulting in a net incentive fee for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, of $0.1 million and $0.4 million, respectively. Our Board of Directors accepted the Adviser’s offer to waive, on a quarterly basis, a portion of the incentive fee for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, in order to support the current level of distributions to our stockholders. This waiver may not be recouped by the Adviser in the future.

Administration Agreement

Pursuant to the Administration Agreement, we pay for our allocable portion of the Administrator’s overhead expenses in performing its obligations to us, including, but not limited to, rent and the salaries and benefits of its personnel, including our chief financial officer and treasurer, chief compliance officer,

Table of Contents

internal counsel and their respective staffs. Our allocable portion of expenses is derived by multiplying the Administrator’s total allocable expenses by the percentage of our total assets at the beginning of each quarter in comparison to the total assets of all companies managed by the Adviser under similar agreements. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, we recorded an administration fee of $0.4 million and $0.7 million, respectively, and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, we recorded an administration fee of $0.3 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

Gladstone Securities

Gladstone Securities, LLC, or Gladstone Securities, is an affiliate of ours, as its parent company is controlled by Mr. David Gladstone, our chairman and chief executive officer.

Dealer Manager Agreement

In connection with the offering of our senior common stock (see Note 8, “Stockholders’ Equity,” for further details) we entered into a Dealer Manager Agreement, dated March 25, 2011, or the Dealer Manager Agreement, with Gladstone Securities pursuant to which Gladstone Securities agreed to act as our exclusive dealer manager in connection with the offering. Pursuant to the terms of the Dealer Manager Agreement, Gladstone Securities is entitled to receive a sales commission in the amount of 7.0% of the gross proceeds of the shares of senior common stock sold, plus a dealer manager fee in the amount of 3.0% of the gross proceeds of the shares of senior common stock sold. Gladstone Securities, in its sole and absolute discretion, may re-allocate all of its selling commissions attributable to a participating broker-dealer and may also re-allocate a portion of its dealer manager fee earned in respect of the proceeds generated by the participating broker-dealer to any participating broker-dealer as a non-accountable marketing allowance. In addition, we have agreed to indemnify Gladstone Securities against various liabilities, including certain liabilities arising under the federal securities laws. We made approximately $0.1 million and $0.2 million of payments during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively, and we made approximately $0.03 million and $0.05 million of payments during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively, to Gladstone Securities pursuant to this agreement, which currently is scheduled to terminate on the earlier of (i) March 28, 2015 or (ii) the date on which 3,000,000 shares of Senior Common Stock are sold pursuant to the Dealer Manager Agreement.

Mortgage Financing Arrangement Agreement

We also entered into an agreement with Gladstone Securities, effective June 18, 2013, for it to act as our non-exclusive agent to assist us with arranging mortgage financing for properties we own. In connection with this engagement, Gladstone Securities may from time to time solicit the interest of various commercial real estate lenders or recommend to us third party lenders offering credit products or packages that are responsive to our needs. We will pay Gladstone Securities a financing fee, or the Financing Fee, in connection with the services it provides to us for securing mortgage financing on any of our properties. The amount of the Financing Fee, which is payable upon closing of the financing, will be based on a percentage of the amount of the mortgage ranging from 0.5% to a maximum of 1% of the mortgage obtained. The amount of the Financing Fee may be reduced or eliminated as determined by us and Gladstone Securities, after taking into consideration various factors, including, but not limited to, the involvement of any third party brokers and market conditions. No such fees were paid as of June 30, 2013. The agreement is scheduled to terminate on August 31, 2014 unless renewed or earlier terminated pursuant to the provisions contained therein.

3. Earnings (Loss) per Share of Common Stock

The following tables set forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share of common stock for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012. We computed basic earnings (loss) per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the periods. Diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, reflects additional shares of common stock, related to our convertible senior common

Convertible senior common stock was excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and the three months ended June 30, 2012 because it was anti-dilutive. Had the convertible senior common stock been included in the calculation, 195,759, 180,753 and 66,000 additional shares would have been included in the diluted weighted average shares of common stock for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and the three months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.

In accordance with the lease terms, substantially all operating expenses are required to be paid by the tenant; however, we would be required to pay property taxes on the respective properties in the event the tenants fail to pay them. The total annual property taxes for all properties owned by us at June 30, 2013, were $9.4 million.

Existing Real Estate Activity

On January 14, 2013, we extended the lease with the tenant occupying our property located in Champaign, Illinois. The lease covering this property was extended for an additional 11 years through December 2024. The lease was originally set to expire in December 2013. The lease provides for prescribed rent escalations over the life of the lease, with annualized straight line rents of approximately $1.4 million. In connection with the extension of the lease and the modification of certain terms under the lease, we paid $0.4 million in leasing commissions.

On April 10, 2013, we extended the lease with the tenant occupying our property located in Akron, Ohio. The lease covering this property was extended for an additional 10 years, through January 2024. The lease was originally set to expire in January 2014. The lease provides for prescribed rent escalations over the life of the lease, with annualized straight line rents of approximately $0.3 million. In connection with the extension of the lease and the modification of certain terms under the lease, we provided a tenant allowance of $0.5 million.

On April 11, 2013, we funded a $3.3 million 102,400 square foot recently completed expansion of our property located in Clintonville, Wisconsin. In connection with the expansion of the property, we executed a lease amendment to extend the lease for an additional eight years, through October 2028. The lease was originally set to expire in October 2020. The lease was also amended to provide for an increase to the rental income over the life of the lease, with annualized straight line rents of approximately $1.0 million, up from $0.6 million today.

Mortgage Notes Payable

As of June 30, 2013, we had 31 fixed-rate mortgage notes payable, collateralized by a total of 65 properties. Gladstone Commercial Corporation has limited recourse liabilities that could result from any one or more of the following circumstances: a borrower voluntarily filing for bankruptcy, improper conveyance of a property, fraud or material misrepresentation, misapplication or misappropriation of rents, security deposits, insurance proceeds or condemnation proceeds, or physical waste or damage to the property resulting from a borrower’s gross negligence or willful misconduct. We will also indemnify lenders against claims resulting from the presence of hazardous substances or activity involving hazardous substances in violation of environmental laws on a property. The weighted-average interest rate on the mortgage notes payable as of June 30, 2013 was 5.62%.

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, we issued one long-term mortgage, which is summarized below (dollars in thousands):

 

Date of Issuance

   Issuing Bank    Borrowings      Interest Rate     Maturity Date  

3/28/2013

   Citigroup Global Markets Realty Corp.    $  3,700         4.16     4/6/2023   

The fair value of all fixed-rate mortgage notes payable outstanding as of June 30, 2013, was $359.4 million, as compared to the carrying value stated above of $358.4 million. The fair value is calculated based on a discounted cash flow analysis, using interest rates based on management’s estimate of market interest rates on long-term debt with comparable terms. The fair value was calculated using Level 3 inputs of the hierarchy established by ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.”

Line of Credit

In December 2010, we procured a $50.0 million Line of Credit (with Capital One, N.A. serving as a revolving lender, a letter of credit issuer and an administrative agent and Branch Banking and Trust Company serving as an additional revolving lender and letter of credit issuer), which matures on December 28, 2013. The Line of Credit originally provided for a senior secured revolving credit facility of up to $50.0 million with a standby letter of credit sublimit of up to $20.0 million. On January 31, 2012, the Line of Credit was expanded to $75.0 million and Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania was added as a revolving lender and letter of credit issuer. Currently, 15 of our properties are pledged as collateral under our Line of Credit. The interest rate per annum applicable to the Line of Credit is equal to the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, plus an applicable margin of up to 3.00%, depending upon our leverage. The leverage ratio used in determining the applicable margin for interest on the Line of Credit is recalculated

quarterly. We are subject to an annual maintenance fee of 0.25% per year. Our ability to access this source of financing is subject to our continued ability to meet customary lending requirements, such as compliance with financial and operating covenants and our meeting certain lending limits. One such covenant requires us to limit distributions to our stockholders to 95% of our FFO, with acquisition-related costs required to be expensed under ASC 805 added back to FFO. In addition, the maximum amount we may draw under the Line of Credit is based on a percentage of the value of properties pledged as collateral to the banks, which must meet agreed upon eligibility standards.

If and when long-term mortgages are arranged for these pledged properties, the banks will release the properties from the Line of Credit and reduce the availability under the Line of Credit by the advanced amount of the released property. Conversely, as we purchase new properties meeting the eligibility standards, we may pledge these new properties to obtain additional availability under the Line of Credit. The availability under the Line of Credit is also reduced by letters of credit used in the ordinary course of business. We may use the advances under the Line of Credit for both general corporate purposes and the acquisition of new investments.

At June 30, 2013, there was $11.2 million outstanding under our Line of Credit at an interest rate of approximately 3.0% and $5.6 million outstanding under letters of credit at a weighted average interest rate of 3.0%. At June 30, 2013, the maximum additional amount we could draw was $26.3 million. We were in compliance with all covenants under the Line of Credit as of June 30, 2013. The amount outstanding on the Line of Credit as of June 30, 2013 approximates fair value, because the debt is short-term.

6. Mandatorily Redeemable Preferred Stock

In February 2012, we completed a public offering of 1,540,000 shares of 7.125% Series C Cumulative Term Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, or the Term Preferred Stock, at a public offering price of $25.00 per share. Gross proceeds of the offering totaled $38.5 million and net proceeds, after deducting offering expenses borne by us, were $36.7 million and were used to repay a portion of outstanding borrowings under our Line of Credit, for acquistions of real estate and for working capital. The Term Preferred Stock is traded under the ticker symbol GOODN on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, or the NASDAQ. The Term Preferred Stock is not convertible into our common stock or any other security of ours. Generally, we may not redeem shares of the Term Preferred Stock prior to January 31, 2016, except in limited circumstances to preserve our status as a REIT. On or after January 31, 2016, we may redeem the shares at a redemption price of $25.00 per share, plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends to and including the date of redemption. The shares of the Term Preferred Stock have a mandatory redemption date of January 31, 2017. We incurred $1.8 million in total offering costs related to these transactions, which have been recorded as deferred financing costs on the condensed consolidated balance sheet and will be amortized over the redemption period ending January 31, 2017.

The Term Preferred Stock is recorded as liability in accordance with ASC 480, “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity,” which states that mandatorily redeemable financial instruments should be classified as liabilities and therefore the related dividend payments are treated as a component of interest expense in the statement of operations.

The fair value of our Term Preferred Stock as of June 30, 2013, was $38.5 million, the same as the carrying value stated above of $38.5 million. The fair value is calculated based on the closing share price as of June 28, 2013, of $25.03. The fair value was calculated using Level 1 inputs of the hierarchy established by ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.”

Gross proceeds of the offering totaled $24.8 million and net proceeds, after deducting offering expenses borne by us, were $23.5 million, which we used to acquire real estate.

Ongoing Activity

We have an open market sale agreement, or the ATM Program, with Jefferies LLC, or Jefferies, under which we may, from time to time, offer to sell shares of our common stock with an aggregate sales price of up to $25.0 million on the open market through Jefferies, as agent, or to Jefferies, as principal. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, we raised approximately $6.3 million in gross proceeds under the ATM Program. As of June 30, 2013, we had sold a total of 665,994 shares with aggregate gross proceeds of $12.4 million, and have a remaining capacity to sell up to $12.6 million of common stock under the ATM Program with Jefferies.

In March 2011, we commenced an offering of an aggregate of 3,500,000 shares of our senior common stock, par value $0.001 per share, at a price to the public of $15.00 per share, of which 3,000,000 shares are intended to be offered pursuant to the primary offering and 500,000 shares are intended to be offered pursuant to our senior common distribution reinvestment plan, or the DRIP. We, however, reserve the right to reallocate the number of shares being offered between the primary offering and the DRIP. As of June 30, 2013, we have sold 243,075, shares of senior common stock in this ongoing offering, for gross proceeds of $3.6 million, and issued an additional 4,527 shares of senior common stock under the DRIP program.

In accordance with ASC 505-10-45-2, “Equity,” receivables from employees for the issuance of capital stock to employees prior to the receipt of cash payment should be reflected in the balance sheet as a reduction to stockholders’ equity. Therefore, this note was recorded as a full recourse loan to the employee and is included in the equity section of the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. As of June 30, 2013, this loan maintained its full recourse status.

9. Subsequent Events

On July 3, 2013, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, we borrowed $8.2 million pursuant to a long-term note payable from Prudential Mortgage Capital Company, LLC, which is collateralized by a security interest in one of our properties.

On July 9, 2013, our Board of Directors resolved to clarify the terms of our Share Redemption Program for our senior common stock, specifically in the case of a redemption request due to death, disability or bankruptcy of a shareholder, or Special Redemptions. The Board of Directors resolved that Special Redemptions are not limited by the restrictions on the amount of shares of senior common stock available to be redeemed that affect other redemptions, namely, that Special Redemptions are exempt from the following limitations: (i) during any calendar year, redemptions may not be in excess of 5% of the weighted average number of shares of senior common stock outstanding during the prior calendar year, and (ii) cash available for redemptions is limited to the proceeds of sales of shares of senior common stock pursuant to the DRIP. The terms of our Share Redemption Program were originally disclosed in the prospectus supplement for our senior common stock offering, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 28, 2011.

On July 10, 2013, we acquired an 115,200 square foot office building located in Allen, Texas for $15.2 million, excluding related acquisition expenses of $0.1 million. We funded this acquisition with existing cash on hand and the issuance of $8.9 million of mortgage debt on the property. There are two tenants in this property, the largest of which occupies 73% of the space and has 9 years remaining on the lease and has 2 options to renew the lease for additional periods of 5 years each. The other tenant has 8 years remaining on the lease and also has 2 options to renew the lease for additional periods of 5 years each. These two leases provide for prescribed rent escalations over the life of the leases, with annualized straight line rents of $1.4 million.

OVERVIEW

General

We are an externally-advised real estate investment trust, or REIT, that was incorporated under the General Corporation Law of the State of Maryland on February 14, 2003, primarily for the purpose of investing in and owning net leased industrial, commercial and retail real property and selectively making long-term industrial and commercial mortgage loans. Our portfolio of real estate is leased to a wide cross section of tenants ranging from small businesses to large public companies, many of which are corporations that do not have publicly-rated debt. We have historically entered into, and intend in the future to enter into, purchase agreements for real estate having triple net leases with terms of approximately 10 to 15 years and built in rental rate increases. Under a triple net lease, the tenant is required to pay all operating, maintenance and insurance costs and real estate taxes with respect to the leased property. We actively communicate with buyout funds, real estate brokers and other third parties to locate properties for potential acquisition or to provide mortgage financing in an effort to build our portfolio. We currently own 85 properties totaling 9.0 million square feet, which have a total gross and net carrying value, including intangible assets, of $728.7 million and $625.2 million, respectively. We do not currently have any mortgage loan receivables outstanding.

Business Environment

The United States, or U.S., is beginning to see long-term signs of recovery as the unemployment rate has decreased over the last several months, housing starts and building permits have increased, and prices for single-family homes increased across 20 U.S. cities because of a dwindling surplus in the housing market. However, various signs of weakness are still present in the U.S economy. Vacancy rates in certain markets are still higher than pre-recessionary levels as job growth has yet to return to all areas of the country. Additionally, interest rates still remain at historic lows, even though they have experienced some recent volatility, which is increasing competition for new acquisitions and causing cap rate compression.

 

24


Table of Contents

We continue to focus on increasing our funds from operations, or FFO, by re-leasing vacant space in our portfolio. As of June 30, 2013 we had three fully vacant buildings and one partially vacant building. Our vacant buildings are located in Hazelwood, Missouri, Baytown, Texas and Richmond, Virginia. Our building located in Roseville, Minnesota remains partially vacant. The leases on these four vacancies comprised 4.2% of our annualized rental income as of June 30, 2013 and the annual carrying costs are approximately $0.6 million. We are actively seeking new tenants for our Richmond, Virginia, Baytown, Texas and Roseville, Minnesota buildings and have executed a lease with a new tenant for our Hazelwood, Missouri building that will begin in August of this year.

Our ability to make new investments is highly dependent upon our ability to procure external financing. Our principal sources of external financing generally include the issuance of equity securities, long-term mortgage loans secured by properties and borrowings under our line of credit, or the Line of Credit. The market for long-term mortgages was limited for the past several years; however, long-term mortgages have become more obtainable. The collateralized mortgage backed securities, or CMBS, market has made a comeback, but it is more conservative and restrictive than it was prior to the recession. Consequently, we continue to look to regional banks, insurance companies and other non-bank lenders, in addition to the CMBS market to issue mortgages to finance our real estate activities.

In addition to leverage, we have been active in the equity markets during 2013 and we have issued shares of common stock in two separate follow-on public offerings and under our open market sale agreement, or ATM Program, with Jefferies, LLC, or Jefferies, discussed in more detail below.

Diversity of Our Portfolio

Gladstone Management Corporation, or our Adviser, seeks to diversify our portfolio to avoid dependence on any one particular tenant, industry or geographic market. By diversifying our portfolio, our Adviser intends to reduce the adverse effect on our portfolio of a single under-performing investment or a downturn in any particular industry or geographic market. The table below reflects the breakdown of our total rental income by tenant industry classification for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively (dollars in thousands):

Our Adviser and Administrator

Our Adviser is led by a management team with extensive experience purchasing real estate and originating mortgage loans. Our Adviser is controlled by Mr. David Gladstone, our chairman and chief executive officer. Mr. Gladstone is also the chairman and chief executive officer of our Adviser. Terry Lee Brubaker, our vice chairman and chief operating officer, is also the vice chairman and chief operating officer of our Adviser. Gladstone Administration, LLC, or our Administrator, employs our chief financial officer and treasurer, chief compliance officer, internal counsel, secretary and their respective staffs.

Table of Contents

Our Adviser and Administrator also provide investment advisory and administrative services, respectively, to certain of our affiliates, including, but not limited to, Gladstone Capital Corporation and Gladstone Investment Corporation, both publicly-traded business development companies, as well as Gladstone Land Corporation, a publicly traded real estate company. With the exception of Ms. Danielle Jones, our chief financial officer and treasurer, and Mr. Robert Cutlip, our president, all of our executive officers and all of our directors serve as either directors or executive officers, or both, of Gladstone Capital Corporation and Gladstone Investment Corporation. In addition, with the exception of our president, all of our executive officers and all of our directors, with the exception of Mr. David Dullum, serve as either directors or executive officers, or both, of Gladstone Land Corporation. In the future, our Adviser may provide investment advisory services to other companies, both public and private.

Advisory and Administration Agreements

We are externally managed pursuant to contractual arrangements with our Adviser and our Administrator. Our Adviser and Administrator employ all of our personnel and pay their payroll, benefits and general expenses directly. We have an investment advisory agreement with our Adviser, or the Advisory Agreement, and an administration agreement with our Administrator, or the Administration Agreement.

Under the terms of the Advisory Agreement, we are responsible for all expenses incurred for our direct benefit. Examples of these expenses include legal, accounting, interest on short-term debt and mortgages, tax preparation, directors’ and officers’ insurance, stock transfer services, stockholder-related fees, consulting and related fees. In addition, we are also responsible for all fees charged by third parties that are directly related to our business, which include real estate brokerage fees, mortgage placement fees, lease-up fees and transaction structuring fees (although we may be able to pass some or all of such fees on to our tenants and borrowers).

During the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, none of these third party expenses were incurred by us directly. The actual amount of such fees that we incur in the future will depend largely upon the aggregate costs of the properties that we acquire, the aggregate amount of mortgage loans that we make and the extent to which we are able to pass on such fees to our tenants and borrowers pursuant to the terms of the agreements. Accordingly, the amount of these fees that we will pay in the future is not determinable at this time.

Advisory Agreement

The Advisory Agreement provides for an annual base management fee equal to 2.0% of our total stockholders’ equity, less the recorded value of any preferred stock, or total common stockholders’ equity, and for an incentive fee based on FFO. Our Adviser does not charge acquisition or disposition fees when we acquire or dispose of properties as is common with other externally-advised REITs; however, our Adviser may earn fee income from our borrowers or tenants or other sources.

For purposes of calculating the incentive fee, FFO includes any realized capital gains and capital losses, less any distributions paid on preferred stock and senior common stock, but FFO does not include any unrealized capital gains or losses. The incentive fee would reward our Adviser if our quarterly FFO, before giving effect to any incentive fee, or pre-incentive fee FFO, exceeds 1.75%, or the hurdle rate, of total common stockholders’ equity. We pay our Adviser an incentive fee with respect to our pre-incentive fee FFO quarterly as follows:

 

   

no incentive fee in any calendar quarter in which our pre-incentive fee FFO does not exceed the hurdle rate of 1.75% (7% annualized);

 

   

100% of the amount of the pre-incentive fee FFO that exceeds the hurdle rate, but is less than 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized); and

 

   

20% of the amount of our pre-incentive fee FFO that exceeds 2.1875% in any calendar quarter (8.75% annualized).

Percentage of pre-incentive fee FFO allocated to the incentive fee

The incentive fee may be reduced because of a covenant which exists in our Line of Credit agreement which limits distributions to our stockholders to 95% of FFO with acquisition-related costs that are required to be expensed under ASC 805, Business Combinations, added back to FFO. In order to comply with this covenant, our Board of Directors accepted our Adviser’s offer to unconditionally, irrevocably and voluntarily waive on a quarterly basis a portion of the incentive fee for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, which allowed us to maintain the current level of distributions to our stockholders. These waived fees may not be recouped by our Adviser in the future. Our Adviser has indicated that it intends to continue to waive all or a portion of the incentive fee in order to support the current level of distributions to our stockholders; however, our Adviser is not required to issue any such waiver, either in whole or in part.

Administration Agreement

Pursuant to the Administration Agreement, we pay for our allocable portion of our Administrator’s overhead expenses incurred while performing its obligations to us, including, but not limited to, rent and the salaries and benefits expenses of our personnel, including our chief financial officer and treasurer, chief compliance officer, internal counsel, investor relations department and their respective staffs. Our allocable portion of expenses is generally derived by multiplying our Administrator’s total expenses by the percentage of our total assets at the beginning of each quarter in comparison to the total assets of all companies managed by our Adviser under similar agreements.

Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of our financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S., or GAAP, requires management to make judgments that are subjective in nature in order to make certain estimates and assumptions. Application of these accounting policies involves the exercise of judgment regarding the use of assumptions as to future uncertainties, and as a result, actual results could materially differ from these estimates. A summary of all of our significant accounting policies is provided in Note 1 to our condensed consolidated financial statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q. Below is a summary of accounting polices involving estimates and assumptions that require complex, subjective or significant judgments in their application and that materially affect our results of operations.

Allocation of Purchase Price

When we acquire real estate, we allocate the purchase price to (i) the acquired tangible assets and liabilities, consisting of land, building, tenant improvements and long-term debt and (ii) the identified intangible assets and liabilities, consisting of the value of above-market and below-market leases, in-place leases, unamortized lease origination costs, tenant relationships and capital lease obligations, based in each case on their fair values in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations. All expenses related to the acquisition are expensed as incurred.

Our Adviser estimates value using methods similar to those used by independent appraisers (e.g., discounted cash flow analysis). Factors considered by management in its analysis include an estimate of carrying costs during hypothetical expected lease-up periods, considering current market conditions and costs to execute similar leases. Our Adviser also considers information obtained about each property as a result of our pre-acquisition due diligence, marketing and leasing activities in estimating the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities acquired. In estimating carrying costs, management also includes real estate taxes, insurance and other operating expenses and estimates of lost rentals at market rates during the hypothetical expected lease-up periods, which primarily range from 9 to 18 months, depending on specific local market conditions. Our Adviser also estimates costs to execute similar leases, including leasing commissions, legal and other related expenses to the extent that such costs are not already incurred in connection with a new lease origination as part of the transaction. Our Adviser also considers the nature and extent of our existing business relationships with the tenant, growth prospects for developing new business with the tenant, the tenant’s credit quality and management’s expectations of lease renewals (including those existing under the terms of the lease agreement), among other factors. A change in any of the assumptions above, which are very subjective, could have a material impact on our results of operations.

The allocation of the purchase price directly affects the following in our condensed consolidated financial statements:

 

   

The amount of purchase price allocated to the various tangible and intangible assets on our balance sheet;

 

   

The amounts allocated to the value of above-market and below-market lease values are amortized to rental income over the remaining non-cancelable terms of the respective leases. The amounts allocated to all other tangible and intangible assets are amortized to depreciation or amortization expense. Thus, depending on the amounts allocated between land and other depreciable assets, changes in the purchase price allocation among our assets could have a material impact on our FFO, a metric which is used by many REIT investors to evaluate our operating performance; and

 

   

The period of time over which tangible and intangible assets are depreciated varies greatly, and thus, changes in the amounts allocated to these assets will have a direct impact on our results of operations. Intangible assets are generally amortized over the respective life of the leases, which normally range from 10 to 15 years. Also, we depreciate our buildings over 39 years, but do not depreciate our land. These differences in timing could have a material impact on our results of operations.

Asset Impairment Evaluation

We periodically review the carrying value of each property to determine if circumstances that indicate impairment in the carrying value of the investment exist or that depreciation periods should be modified. In determining if impairment exists, our Adviser considers such factors as our tenants’ payment histories, the financial condition of our tenants, including calculating the current leverage ratios of tenants, the likelihood of lease renewal, business conditions in the industries in which our tenants operate and whether the carrying value of our real estate has decreased. If any of the factors above indicate the possibility of impairment, we prepare a projection of the undiscounted future cash flows, without interest charges, of the specific property and determine if the carrying amount of such property is recoverable. In preparing the projection of undiscounted future cash flows, we estimate the holding periods of the properties and cap rates using information that we obtain from market comparability studies and other comparable sources. If impairment were indicated, the carrying value of the property would be written down to its estimated fair value based on our best estimate of the property’s discounted future cash flows using assumptions from market participants. Any material changes to the estimates and assumptions used in this analysis could have a significant impact on our results of operations, as the changes would impact our determination of whether impairment is deemed to have occurred and the amount of impairment loss that we would recognize.

Using the methodology discussed above we evaluated our entire portfolio as of June 30, 2013 for any impairment indicators and performed an impairment analysis on those select properties that had an indication of impairment. We concluded that none of our properties were impaired as of June 30, 2013; however, we determined that our property located in South Hadley, Massachusetts may become impaired in the future. The lease on this property expires in January 2014 and we are currently negotiating a potential lease extension with the existing tenant. There is a possibility we would have to impair the property in 2013 if we do not negotiate a lease extension on this building or find a replacement tenant.

We will continue to monitor our portfolio for any indicators of impairment and there have been no impairments recognized on our real estate assets since inception.

Results of Operations

The weighted-average yield on our total portfolio, which was 9.0% as of June 30, 2013, is calculated by taking the annualized straight-line rents, reflected as rental income on our condensed consolidated statements of operations, of each acquisition as a percentage of the acquisition. The weighted-average yield does not account for the interest expense incurred on the mortgages placed on our properties.

Operating Revenues

Rental income increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, because of the six properties acquired subsequent to June 30, 2012, partially offset by a loss of rental income due to vacancies in our portfolio subsequent to June 30, 2012.

Tenant recovery revenue decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2012. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in our insurance premiums and, thus, a decrease in the amount reimbursed by our tenants, partially offset by reimbursements from our partially vacant building located in Roseville, Minnesota. We are responsible for paying the operating expenses at this building; however, the current tenant that occupies a portion of the space is reimbursing us for a portion of these expenses. Tenant recovery revenue increased for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012. This increase was primarily due to reimbursements from our tenant in our partially vacant building located in Roseville, Minnesota.

Operating Expenses

Depreciation and amortization expenses increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, because of the six properties acquired subsequent to June 30, 2012.

Property operating expenses consist of franchise taxes, management fees, insurance, ground lease payments and overhead expenses paid on behalf of certain of our properties. Property operating expenses increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, primarily because of an increase in overhead expenses at our partially vacant Roseville, Minnesota building.

Acquisition related expense primarily consists of legal fees and fees incurred for third-party reports prepared in connection with potential acquisitions and our due diligence analyses related thereto. Acquisition related expense decreased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, as a result of costs incurred related to the five properties acquired during the six months ended June 30, 2012, versus only three properties acquired during the six months ended June 30, 2013.

The base management fee increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, due to an increase in total common stockholders’ equity, the main component of the calculation. The calculation of the base management fee is described in detail above under “Advisory and Administration Agreements.”

The incentive fee increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, because of an increase in pre-incentive fee FFO. The increase in pre-incentive fee FFO was due to an increase in rental revenues from the acquisitions acquired subsequent to June 30, 2012, which was partially offset by an increase in property operating and interest expenses during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

The incentive fee credit increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, because of an increase in the amount of common dividends paid from the shares issued during 2013. The calculation of the incentive fee is described in detail above within “Advisory and Administration Agreements.”

The administration fee increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, as a result of an increase in the amount of the total expenses our Administrator incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2013, coupled with a larger percentage of the fee being allocated to us as a result of the increase in our total assets during the last 12 months. The calculation of the administration fee is described in detail above within “ Advisory and Administration Agreements.”

General and administrative expenses increased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, as a result of an increase in professional fees related to tax and audit work from the increase in our asset size.

Other Income and Expenses

Interest expense increased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012. This increase was primarily a result of interest on the $94.4 million of mortgage debt assumed and issued in the past 12 months, partially offset by reduced interest expense on our long-term financings from amortizing and balloon principal payments made during the last 12 months.

Distributions on our mandatorily redeemable preferred stock increased for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2012, because the public offering of shares of our Term Preferred Stock was completed in February 2012, and thus was not outstanding for the full six months ended June 30, 2012.

Table of Contents

Other income decreased during both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, because of lower interest income on employee loans earned during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 due to principal repayments made by employees of our Adviser during the past twelve months.

Net (Loss) Income Available to Common Stockholders

Net (loss) income available to common stockholders decreased for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, primarily because of increased interest expense and increased distributions to our preferred stockholders from the issuance of our 7.125% Series C Cumulative Term Preferred Stock, or the Term Preferred Stock, partially offset by an increase in rental income earned from the 6 properties acquired in the past 12 months.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Overview

Our sources of liquidity include cash flows from operations, cash and cash equivalents, borrowings under our Line of Credit, obtaining mortgages on our unencumbered properties and issuing additional equity securities. Our available liquidity at June 30, 2013, was $30.3 million, including $4.0 million in cash and cash equivalents and an available borrowing capacity of $26.3 million under our Line of Credit.

Future Capital Needs

We actively seek conservative investments that are likely to produce income to pay distributions to our stockholders. We intend to use the proceeds received from future equity raised and debt capital borrowed to continue to invest in industrial, commercial and retail real property, make mortgage loans, or pay down outstanding borrowings under our Line of Credit. Accordingly, to ensure that we are able to effectively execute our business strategy, we routinely review our liquidity requirements and continually evaluate all potential sources of liquidity. Our short-term liquidity needs include proceeds necessary to fund our distributions to stockholders, pay the debt service costs on our existing long-term mortgages, and fund our current operating costs. Our long-term liquidity needs include proceeds necessary to grow and maintain our portfolio of investments.

We believe that our available liquidity is sufficient to fund our distributions to stockholders, pay the debt service costs on our existing long-term mortgages and fund our current operating costs in the near term. Additionally, to satisfy our short-term obligations, we may request credits to our management fees that are issued from our Adviser, although our Adviser is under no obligation to provide any such credits, either in whole or in part. Historically, our Adviser has provided such partial credits to our management fees on a quarterly basis. We further believe that our cash flow from operations coupled with the financing capital available to us in the future are sufficient to fund our long-term liquidity needs.

Equity Capital

During 2013, we raised $51.7 million of common equity in two follow-on public offerings, or $48.9 million in net proceeds, at an average share price of $18.86, we also raised $6.3 million of common equity under our ATM Program, or $6.2 million in net proceeds, at an average share price of $18.85. We also raised $1.7 million in net proceeds of senior common equity. We used these proceeds to acquire additional real estate, repay a portion of the outstanding balance of the Line of Credit, with the remainder used for general corporate and working capital needs.

Table of Contents

As of today, we have the ability to raise up to $153.4 million of additional equity capital through the sale and issuance of securities that are registered under our universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-169290), or the Universal Shelf, in one or more future public offerings. Of the $153.4 million of available capacity under our Universal Shelf, $12.6 million of common stock is reserved for additional sales under our ATM Program and $48.0 million is reserved for sales of our senior common stock. Our Universal Shelf expires in September 2013; however, we intend to file a new registration statement to continue to give us the ability to raise equity capital through follow-on public offerings and pursuant to our ATM Program and Dealer Manager Agreement.

Debt Capital

As of June 30, 2013, we had fixed-rate mortgage notes payable in the aggregate principal amount of $358.4 million, collateralized by a total of 65 properties with terms at issuance ranging from 5 years to 17 years. The weighted-average interest rate on the mortgage notes payable as of June 30, 2013 was 5.62%.

The CMBS market has returned, see the discussion in “ Overview – Business Environment ” above. Specifically, we continue to see banks and other non-bank lenders willing to issue 10-year mortgages. Consequently, we are focused on obtaining mortgages through regional banks, non-bank lenders and CMBS.

We have mortgage debt in the aggregate principal amount of $12.1 million payable during the remainder of 2013 and $24.5 million payable during 2014. The 2013 and 2014 principal amounts payable include both amortizing principal payments and balloon principal payments due in December of 2013 of $8.5 million and June 2014 of $17.3 million; however, we are initiating conversations with these lenders in advance of these maturities and anticipate being able to extend the maturity dates or refinance with new lenders. We intend to pay the 2013 and 2014 debt amortization payments from operating cash flow and borrowings under our Line of Credit.

Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2013, was $7.5 million, as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $10.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. This decrease was primarily a result of a decrease in our payables and commissions paid for renewing existing leases, coupled with a decrease in revenues from vacancies in our portfolio in the past 12 months, partially offset by an increase in rental income received from the 6 properties acquired in the past 12 months. The majority of cash from operating activities is generated from the rental payments that we receive from our tenants. We utilize this cash to fund our property-level operating expenses and use the excess cash primarily for debt and interest payments on our mortgage notes payable, interest payments on our Line of Credit, distributions to our stockholders, management fees to our Adviser, and other entity-level expenses.

Investing Activities

Net cash used in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2013, was $38.3 million, which primarily consisted of the acquisition of three properties, the expansion at another property and tenant improvements performed at certain of our properties during the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to net cash used in investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2012, of $46.3 million, which primarily consisted of the acquisition of five properties, coupled with tenant improvements performed at certain of our properties and net payments to our lenders for reserves.

Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2013, was $29.3 million, which primarily consisted of proceeds from the sale of common stock and proceeds from the issuance of mortgage notes payable, partially offset by net repayments on our Line of Credit, distributions paid to our stockholders and principal repayments on mortgage notes payable. Net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2012, was $36.5 million, which primarily consisted of proceeds from the sale of our Term Preferred Stock and proceeds from the issuance of mortgage notes payable, partially offset by distributions paid to our stockholders, principal repayments on mortgage notes payable and net repayments on our Line of Credit.

Line of Credit

In December 2010, we procured a $50.0 million Line of Credit maturing on December 28, 2013, with Capital One, N.A. serving as a revolving lender, a letter of credit issuer and an administrative agent and Branch Banking and Trust Company serving as a revolving lender and letter of credit issuer. The Line of Credit originally provided for a senior secured revolving credit facility of up to $50.0 million, with a standby letter of credit sublimit of up to $20.0 million. In January 2012, the Line of Credit was expanded to $75.0 million and Citizens Bank of Pennsylvania was added as a revolving lender and letter of credit issuer. The interest rate per annum applicable to the Line of Credit is equal to the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, plus an applicable margin of up to 3.00% depending upon our leverage. Our leverage ratio used in determining the applicable margin for interest on the Line of Credit is recalculated quarterly. We are subject to an annual maintenance fee of 0.25% per year. Our ability to access this source of financing is subject to our continued ability to meet customary lending requirements such as compliance with financial and operating covenants and our meeting certain lending limits. One such covenant requires us to limit distributions to our stockholders to 95% of our FFO, with acquisition-related costs required to be expensed under ASC 805 added back to FFO for covenant purposes. In addition, the maximum amount that we may draw under this agreement is based on a percentage of the value of properties pledged as collateral to the banks, which must meet agreed upon eligibility standards. Currently, 15 of our properties are pledged as collateral under our Line of Credit.

When we are able to procure mortgages for these pledged properties, the banks will release the properties from the Line of Credit and reduce the availability under the Line of Credit by the advanced amount of the released property. Conversely, as we purchase new properties meeting the eligibility standards, we may pledge these new properties to obtain additional advances under the Line of Credit. Our availability under the Line of Credit will also be reduced by letters of credit used in the ordinary course of business. We may use the advances under the Line of Credit for both general corporate purposes and the acquisition of new investments.

As of June 30, 2013, there was $11.2 million outstanding under the Line of Credit at an interest rate of approximately 3.0% and $5.6 million outstanding under letters of credit at a weighted average interest rate of 3.0%. As of June 30, 2013, the remaining borrowing capacity available under the Line of Credit was $26.3 million. Our ability to increase the availability under our Line of Credit is dependent upon our pledging additional properties as collateral. Traditionally, we have pledged new properties to the Line of Credit as we arrange for long-term mortgages for these pledged properties. Currently, only 17 of our properties do not have long-term mortgages, and 15 of those are pledged as collateral under our Line of Credit. Accordingly, we have only 2 properties which are unencumbered. We were in compliance with all covenants under the Line of Credit as of June 30, 2013.

Our Line of Credit matures in December 2013. We are currently in discussions with various lenders to implement a new line of credit. We anticipate being able to issue a new line in advance of the maturity of our existing line in an amount similar to our existing Line of Credit.

If we cannot find replacement financing, management has reviewed its cash uses and sources and has identified plans that could be implemented to continue operations despite the maturity of the Line of Credit. These steps could include obtaining an extension from the current lender to provide additional time to obtain replacement financing, suspension of capital spending, cost reductions, an equity raise and possible asset disposals. Additionally, management has assessed that the remaining assets in the portfolio would produce sufficient cash flows to fund operating cash needs and meet remaining debt service requirements in the near term.

(1) Debt obligations represent borrowings under our Line of Credit, which represents $11.2 million of the debt obligation due in 2013, mortgage notes payable that were outstanding as of June 30, 2013, and amounts due to the holders of our Term Preferred Stock.
(2) Interest on debt obligations includes estimated interest on our borrowings under our Line of Credit, mortgage notes payable and interest due to the holders of our Term Preferred Stock. The balance and interest rate on our Line of Credit is variable; thus, the amount of interest calculated for purposes of this table was based upon rates and balances as of June 30, 2013.
(3) Operating lease obligations represent the ground lease payments due on our Tulsa, Oklahoma, Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and Springfield, Missouri properties.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2013.

Funds from Operations

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, developed FFO as a relevant non-GAAP supplemental measure of operating performance of an equity REIT, to recognize that income-producing real estate historically has not depreciated on the same basis determined under GAAP. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, is net income (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of property and impairment losses on property, plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

FFO does not represent cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, which, unlike FFO, generally reflects all cash effects of transactions and other events in the determination of net income and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance or to cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity or ability to make distributions. Comparison of FFO, using the NAREIT definition, to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in the application of the NAREIT definition used by such REITs.

FFO available to common stockholders is FFO adjusted to subtract distributions made to holders of preferred and senior common stock. We believe that net income available to common stockholders is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO available to common stockholders.

Basic funds from operations per share, or Basic FFO per share, and diluted funds from operations per share, or Diluted FFO per share, is FFO available to common stockholders divided by the number of weighted average shares of common stock outstanding and FFO available to common stockholders divided by the number of weighted average shares of common stock outstanding on a diluted basis, respectively, during a period. We believe that FFO available to common stockholders, Basic FFO per share and Diluted FFO per share are useful to investors because they provide investors with a further context for evaluating our FFO results in the same manner that investors use net income and earnings per share, or EPS, in evaluating net income available to common stockholders. In addition, because most REITs provide FFO available to common stockholders, Basic FFO and Diluted FFO per share information to the investment community, we believe these are useful supplemental measures when comparing us to other REITs. We believe that net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to FFO, Basic EPS is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Basic FFO per share, and that diluted EPS is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Diluted FFO per share.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Market risk includes risks that arise from changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates, commodity prices, equity prices and other market changes that affect market sensitive instruments. The primary risk that we believe we are and will be exposed to is interest rate risk. Certain of our leases contain escalations based on market indices, and the interest rate on our existing Line of Credit is variable. Although we seek to mitigate this risk by structuring such provisions of our loans and leases to contain a minimum interest rate or escalation rate, as applicable, these features do not eliminate this risk. To date, we have not entered into any derivative contracts to attempt to further manage our exposure to interest rate fluctuations.

To illustrate the potential impact of changes in interest rates on our net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, we have performed the following analysis, which assumes that our balance sheet remains constant and that no further actions beyond a minimum interest rate or escalation rate are taken to alter our existing interest rate sensitivity.

The following table summarizes the annual impact of a 1%, 2% and 3% increase in the one month LIBOR as of June 30, 2013. As of June 30, 2013, our effective average LIBOR was 0.19%; thus, a 1%, 2% or 3% decrease could not occur.

     —           260         (260

As of June 30, 2013, the fair value of our fixed rate mortgage debt outstanding was $359.4 million. Interest rate fluctuations may affect the fair value of our fixed rate debt instruments. If interest rates on our fixed rate debt instruments, using rates at June 30, 2013, had been one percentage point higher or lower, the fair value of those debt instruments on that date would have decreased or increased by $18.8 million and $9.8 million, respectively.

In the future, we may be exposed to additional effects of interest rate changes, primarily as a result of our Line of Credit or long-term mortgage debt, which we use to maintain liquidity and fund expansion of our real estate investment portfolio and operations. Our interest rate risk management objectives are to limit the impact of interest rate changes on earnings and cash flows and to lower overall borrowing costs. To achieve these objectives, we will borrow primarily at fixed rates or variable rates with the lowest margins available and, in some cases, with the ability to convert variable rates to fixed rates. We may also enter into derivative financial instruments such as interest rate swaps and caps in order to mitigate the interest rate risk on a related financial instrument. We will not enter into derivative or interest rate transactions for speculative purposes.

In addition to changes in interest rates, the value of our real estate is subject to fluctuations based on changes in local and regional economic conditions and changes in the creditworthiness of lessees and borrowers, all of which may affect our ability to refinance debt, if necessary.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As of June 30, 2013, our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer and treasurer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)). Based on that evaluation, management, including the chief executive officer and chief financial officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2013, in providing a reasonable level of assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in applicable Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, including providing a reasonable level of assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in such reports is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and our chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. However, in evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated can provide only reasonable assurance of necessarily achieving the desired control objectives, and management was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended June 30, 2013, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
