Portfolio and Leasing Summary

During the second quarter, net operating income for all operating properties that we acquired prior to January 1, 2016 and owned through June 30, 2017 ("Same-Store NOI")  decreased 4.8% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017, and  decreased 11.5% when compared to the same quarter in 2016. The decrease in Same-Store NOI was primarily a result of the expiration of our lease with Sybase Inc. ("Sybase") in January 2017, a 405,000 square foot lease with our second largest tenant as of December 31, 2016. Excluding Sybase, Same-Store NOI increased 0.6% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and increased 0.5% when compared to the same quarter in 2016.

When GAAP adjustments are excluded, Same-Store NOI  decreased 4.9% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017, and  decreased 12.4% when compared to the same quarter in 2016. When Sybase and GAAP adjustments are excluded, Same-Store NOI increased 1.6% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2017 and increased 3.1% when compared to the same quarter in 2016.

During the second quarter, DPF signed 41 leases for approximately 217,000 square feet.  On a comparable space basis, DPF signed 30 leases for approximately 168,000 square feet.  The average growth in rents, on a GAAP basis, for the comparable leases signed in the second quarter was 54.8%. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2017, DPF signed 156 leases for approximately 1.1 million square feet.  On a comparable basis, DPF signed 112 leases for approximately 787,000 square feet during the twelve months ended June 30, 2017.  The average growth in rents, on a GAAP basis, for the comparable leases signed in the last twelve months was 32.3%.

The overall portfolio percentage leased was 86.9% as of June 30, 2017, compared to 87.8% on March 31, 2017 and 90.2% on June 30, 2016.  Same-store percentage leased was 86.9% at June 30, 2017, compared to 87.0% at March 31, 2017 and 92.4% at June 30, 2016.
