___________________________________________________

(1)     NAREIT recently issued updated reporting guidance that directs companies, for their computation of NAREIT FFO, to exclude impairments of depreciable real estate and other assets when write-downs are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of real estate holdings (e.g., investments in joint ventures that primarily hold real estate). Previously, the Company's calculation of FFO (consistent with NAREIT's previous guidance) did not exclude impairments of, or related to, depreciable real estate. Consistent with this current NAREIT reporting guidance, the Company has restated its 2010 FFO amounts.
 
(2) This charge during the year ended December 31, 2011 relates to the Ventas litigation settlement. See the "Litigation" section of this release for additional information regarding this settlement.
 
(3) See the "Funds From Operations" section of this release for additional information regarding impairments or recoveries of non-depreciable assets ("other impairments") and merger-related items.
 

FFO, FFO as adjusted and FAD are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures that the Company believes are helpful in evaluating the operating performance of real estate investment trusts. See the "Funds From Operations" section of this release for additional information regarding FFO and FFO as adjusted and the "Funds Available for Distribution" section for additional information regarding FAD.

INVESTMENT TRANSACTIONS

During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, we made investments of $40 million to fund development and other capital projects, primarily in our life science and medical office segments. During the quarter ended December 31, 2011, we executed two loan commitments to fund up to $35 million of senior housing development.

During the three months ended December 31, 2011, we sold three senior housing facilities for $19 million, recognizing gain on sales of real estate of $3.1 million.

LITIGATION

On November 9, 2011, we entered into an agreement with Ventas, Inc. to settle all remaining claims relating to Ventas's litigation against HCP arising out of Ventas's 2007 acquisition of Sunrise Senior Living REIT. We paid $125 million to Ventas and incurred a charge during the quarter ended December 31, 2011 for the amount paid.

SUSTAINABILITY

HCP's 2011 sustainability accomplishments include the following: (i) earned 29 ENERGY STAR certifications in its medical office (17), life science (7) and senior housing (5) segments; (ii) recognized in May 2011 by ENERGY STAR as the leader in ENERGY STAR certifications for the MOB category; and (iii) awarded NAREIT's "Leader in the Light" Innovator Award, which recognizes companies demonstrating excellence in energy efficiency.

FINANCING

On January 23, 2012, we issued $450 million of 3.75% senior unsecured notes due 2019; net proceeds from the offering were $444 million.

OTHER EVENTS

On February 7, 2012, we executed a lease amendment with Google to expand its footprint at our Mountain View campus to a total of 290,000 sq. ft. Under the terms of this amendment, Google will: (i) lease an additional 41,000 sq. ft. building for a term of 10 years, resulting in a mark-to-market rent increase of 17%; and (ii) extend the term on 124,000 sq. ft. through 2022 (coterminous with the expansion). The terms of the remaining 125,000 sq. ft. leased to 2021 were unchanged.

DIVIDEND

On January 26, 2012, we announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.50 per common share. The dividend will be paid on February 22, 2012 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 6, 2012. The annualized distribution rate for 2012 is $2.00, compared to $1.92 for 2011, which represents an increase of 4.2%.

OUTLOOK

For the full year 2012, we expect FFO applicable to common shares to range between $2.70 and $2.76 per share; FAD applicable to common shares to range between $2.14 and $2.20 per share; and net income applicable to common shares to range between $1.81 and $1.87 per share. These estimates do not reflect, among other things, the potential impact of future acquisitions or dispositions. See Projected Future Operations section of this release for additional information regarding these estimates.

________________________________________

(1)     The Company believes FFO is an important supplemental measure of operating performance for a real estate investment trust. Because the historical cost accounting convention used for real estate assets utilizes straight-line depreciation (except on land), such accounting presentation implies that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen and fallen with market conditions, presentations of operating results for a real estate investment trust that uses historical cost accounting for depreciation could be less informative. The term FFO was designed by the real estate investment trust industry to address this issue. FFO is defined as net income applicable to common shares (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or "GAAP"), excluding gains or losses from acquisition and dispositions of depreciable real estate or related interests, impairments of, or related to, depreciable real estate, plus real estate and DFL depreciation and amortization, with adjustments for joint ventures. Adjustments for joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered an alternative to net income. The Company's computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other real estate investment trusts that do not define the term in accordance with the current National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' ("NAREIT") definition or that have a different interpretation of the current NAREIT definition from the Company. FFO as adjusted represents FFO before the impact of litigation settlement charges, other impairments, other impairment recoveries and merger-related items (defined below). Management believes FFO as adjusted is a useful alternative measurement. This measure is a modification of the NAREIT definition of FFO and should not be used as an alternative to net income.
 
(2) NAREIT recently issued updated reporting guidance that directs companies, for their computation of NAREIT FFO, to exclude impairments of depreciable real estate and other assets when write-downs are driven by measurable decreases in the fair value of real estate holdings (e.g., investments in joint ventures that primarily hold real estate). Previously, the Company's calculation of FFO (consistent with NAREIT's previous guidance) did not exclude impairments of, or related to, depreciable real estate. Consistent with this current NAREIT reporting guidance, the Company has restated its 2010 FFO amounts.
 
(3) This charge of $125 million, or $0.31 per share, during the year ended December 31, 2011 relates to the Ventas settlement. See the "Litigation" section of this release for additional information regarding this settlement.
 
(4) Other impairments of $15.4 million, or $0.04 per share, during the year ended December 31, 2011 relates to our senior secured loan to Cirrus Health. Recoveries of $11.9 million, or $0.04 per share, relate to portions of previous impairment charges related to investments in three direct financing leases (non-depreciable due to lessee purchase option) and a participation interest in a senior construction loan related to Erickson Retirement Communities.
 
(5) 2011 merger-related items represents the aggregate impact of $0.15 per share include the following: (i) direct transaction costs, (ii) prefunding activities related to the impact of senior unsecured notes and common stock issued to prefund the HCR ManorCare Acquisition, partially offset by (iii) income related to gains upon the reinvestment of the Company's debt investment in HCR ManorCare and other miscellaneous items. 2010 merger-related items of $0.02 per share include the following: (i) direct transaction costs; and (ii) prefunding activities related to the impact of common stock issued to prefund the HCR ManorCare Acquisition.

________________________________________

(1)     Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD") is defined as FFO as adjusted after excluding the impact of the following: (i) straight-line rents; (ii) amortization of acquired above/below market lease intangibles; (iii) amortization of debt premiums, discounts and issuance costs; (iv) amortization of stock-based compensation expense; (v) accretion and depreciation related to direct financing leases; and (vi) deferred revenues. Further, FAD is computed after deducting recurring capital expenditures, including leasing costs and second generation tenant and capital improvements and includes similar adjustments to compute the Company's share of FAD from its unconsolidated joint ventures. Other REITs or real estate companies may use different methodologies for calculating FAD, and accordingly, HCP's FAD may not be comparable to those reported by other REITs. Although HCP's FAD computation may not be comparable to that of other REITs, management believes FAD provides a meaningful supplemental measure of the Company's ability to fund its ongoing dividend payments. In addition, management believes that in order to further understand and analyze the Company's liquidity, FAD should be compared with cash flows as determined in accordance with GAAP and presented in its consolidated financial statements. FAD does not represent cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP, and FAD should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of the Company's performance, as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), or as a measure of the Company's liquidity.
 
(2) Excludes $11.3 million related to the write-off of unamortized loan fees related to an expired bridge loan commitment and $0.8 million related to the amortization of deferred issuance costs of the senior notes, which costs are included in merger-related items for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
(3) For the quarter and year ended December 31, 2011, DFL accretion reflects an elimination of $14.5 million and $42.2 million respectively. Our ownership interest in HCR ManorCare OpCo is accounted for using the equity method, which requires an ongoing elimination of DFL income that is proportional to our ownership in HCR ManorCare OpCo. Further, our share of earnings from HCR ManorCare OpCo (equity income) increases for the corresponding elimination of related lease expense recognized at the HCR ManorCare OpCo level, which we present as a non-cash joint venture FAD adjustment.
 
(4) Excludes $41 million ($2 million in 4Q2010 and $39 million in 3Q2010) of deferred leasing costs related to the buyout of management contracts for 27 Sunrise-managed communities. On November 1, 2010, we exercised our rights to terminate management contracts relating to 27 senior housing communities previously operated by Sunrise; our net investment to acquire these termination rights was $41 million, which consisted of a $50 million payment to Sunrise that was partially offset for certain working capital acquired in conjunction with this transaction.

________________________________________

(1)     The Company believes Net Operating Income from Continuing Operations ("NOI") provides investors relevant and useful information because it measures the operating performance of the Company's leased properties (i.e., real estate and DFLs) at the property level on an unleveraged basis. NOI is used to evaluate the operating performance of leased properties and SPP. The Company uses NOI and NOI, as adjusted, to make decisions about resource allocations, to assess and compare property level performance, and evaluate SPP. The Company believes that net income is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to NOI. NOI should not be viewed as an alternative measure of operating performance to net income as defined by GAAP since it does not reflect the aforementioned excluded items. Further, NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate investment trusts, as they may use different methodologies for calculating NOI.
 
NOI is defined as rental revenues, including tenant reimbursements, resident fees and services, and income from direct financing leases, less property level operating expenses. NOI excludes interest income, investment management fee income, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, general and administrative expenses, litigation settlement, impairments, impairment recoveries, other income, net, income tax expenses, equity income from unconsolidated joint ventures and discontinued operations. NOI, as adjusted, is calculated as NOI eliminating the effects of straight-line rents, DFL accretion, amortization of above and below market lease intangibles, and lease termination fees. NOI, as adjusted, is sometimes referred to as "adjusted NOI" or "cash NOI."
 
(2) Same property statistics allow management to evaluate the performance of the Company's leased property portfolio under a consistent population, which eliminates the changes in the composition of our portfolio of properties. The Company identifies its SPP as stabilized properties that are, and remained, in operations for the duration of the year-over-year comparison periods presented. Accordingly, it takes a stabilized property a minimum of 12 months in operations to be included in the Company's same property portfolio. SPP NOI excludes certain non-property specific operating expenses that are allocated to each operating segment on a consolidated basis.
