Second Quarter Financial Results for our Predecessor1
Total revenues of our predecessor for the second quarter of 2013 were $3.3 million, an increase of 4.4% compared to the three months ended June 30, 2012. For the six month period ended June 2013, total revenues were $6.6 million, an increase 3.0% from the six months ended June 30, 2012.
Rental revenues increased to $2.6 million for the second quarter, up 2.7% from the same period of 2012, primarily due to two new triple net leases totaling 15,431 square feet and a new 5-year lease extension on a 38,098 square foot space entered into in December 2012, February 2013, and June 2012, respectively. For the first six months of 2013, rental revenues were $5.0 million, essentially the same as the prior year period, primarily due to the expiration and non-renewal of a lease, offset by the two new triple net leases and the 5-year lease extension.
Expense recoveries were $0.8 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2013, an increase of 10.4% from the second quarter of 2012, due primarily to the new triple net leases described above.
