Revenues from continuing operations in the fourth quarter totaled $82.9 million, up from $67.4 million in the prior year's fourth quarter. Funds from operations (FFO) for the period totaled $29.5 million, or $0.54 per share, compared to $17.7 million, or $0.39 per share, in the year-earlier period.

For its fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, KRC reported net income available to common stockholders of $4.5 million, or $0.07 per share, compared to $21.8 million, or $0.53 per share, in fiscal year 2009. Revenues from continuing operations in 2010 totaled $302.0 million, up from $279.4 million in 2009. FFO for the year totaled $106.6 million, or $2.05 per share, compared to $107.2 million, or $2.60 per share, in 2009.

Results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 include a one-time $7.0 million charge for separation payments related to the resignation of the company's former chief financial officer and also include a $4.9 million, or $0.12 per share, gain from the early extinguishment of debt related to the company's repurchase of a portion of its 3.25% exchangeable senior notes. In addition, net income amounts for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2009 include an approximate $2.5 million gain from a property disposition. Results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 include a $4.6 million, or $0.09 per share, charge for the early extinguishment of debt related to the company's repurchase of $150.0 million of its 3.25% exchangeable senior notes. In addition, net income amounts for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 include an approximate $1.0 million net gain from property dispositions. All per share amounts in this report are presented on a diluted basis.

During the fourth quarter of 2010, KRC completed the acquisition of three office properties totaling just over 692,000 square feet of space for a total investment of approximately $268.4 million.

In October and November, the company completed the previously-announced purchases of a 122,100 square-foot, three-story office building in the greater Seattle area for approximately $46.0 million and a 466,500 square-foot, 27-story Class A, LEED Gold certified office building in San Francisco's South Financial District for approximately $191.5 million, respectively.

Also in November, KRC completed the acquisition of a 103,900 square-foot, LEED Gold certified office building located in the Liberty Station community of San Diego for approximately $30.9 million. Completed in 2009, the building was 95% occupied as of December 31, 2010.

During 2010, KRC acquired ten office properties, totaling more than two million square feet of space, located in coastal submarkets of San Diego, Orange County, San Francisco and greater Seattle, for an aggregate investment of approximately $697.8 million. In the aggregate, these ten properties were 86.4% occupied and 92.8% leased at year-end 2010.

In January 2011, the company completed its third acquisition in San Francisco with the purchase of 250 Brannan Street in the South Financial District for approximately $33.0 million. The building encompasses approximately 91,000 square feet and is currently 77% leased to two tenants.

KRC also reported that its leasing program made solid gains in the fourth quarter, with the company signing new and renewing leases on approximately 850,000 square feet of office and industrial space. At December 31, 2010, the company's stabilized portfolio totaled approximately 14.0 million square feet and was 89.1% occupied, up from 82.8% at December 31, 2009.

"We made substantial progress on a number of fronts during 2010," said John Kilroy, Jr., KRC's president and chief executive officer. "We signed leases on close to 2.0 million square feet of space, increasing our stabilized occupancy by more than six percentage points. We expanded our geographic footprint and asset base with strategic acquisitions, many LEED certified, in high potential, high value West Coast markets. And we obtained investment grade ratings and broadened our sources of capital. Looking forward, our focus will remain on a strong leasing program, a conservatively managed balance sheet, and an opportunistic growth program that may include acquisitions or development, depending upon market conditions and tenant demand."

(1) The company calculates FFO in accordance with the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT. The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss calculated in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items, as defined by GAAP, and gains and losses from sales of depreciable operating property, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs and depreciation of non-real estate assets), and after adjustment for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
Management believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of the company's operating performance. The exclusion from FFO of gains and losses from the sale of operating real estate assets allows investors and analysts to readily identify the operating results of the assets that form the core of the company's activity and assists in comparing those operating results between periods. Also, because FFO is generally recognized as the industry standard for reporting the operations of REITs, it facilitates comparisons of the company's operating performance to other REITs. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO, and accordingly, the company's FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs.
Implicit in historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP is the assumption that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results for real estate companies using historical cost accounting alone to be insufficient. Because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, management believes that FFO along with the required GAAP presentations provides a more complete measurement of the company's performance relative to its competitors and a more appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing and investing activities than the required GAAP presentations alone would provide.
However, FFO should not be viewed as an alternative measure of the company's operating performance since it does not reflect either depreciation and amortization costs or the level of capital expenditures and leasing costs necessary to maintain the operating performance of the company's properties, which are significant economic costs and could materially impact the company's results from operations.
