WHITESTONE REIT ANNOUNCES OPERATING RESULTS FOR FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR 2011
 
Fourth Quarter and 2011 Highlights
Year-Over-Year Increase in Occupancy of Operating Portfolio to 87% from 86% in 2010
Achieved Record FFO-Core with 22% Year-Over-Year Increase; Net Income for 2011 was $1.3 Million
Acquired Seven Community Centers at Below Replacement Cost and Two Future Development Land Parcels for Aggregate Purchase Price of $81.6 Million in 2011
 
Houston, Texas, February 28, 2012 - Whitestone REIT (NYSE Amex: WSR - “Whitestone” or the “Company”), a fully integrated real estate company that owns, operates and re-develops Community Centered PropertiesTM, which are visibly located in established or developing culturally diverse neighborhoods, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2011.
 
“Whitestone's 2011 was a break-out growth year as we increased the acquisition pace of value-add Community Centered Properties and expanded our geographic footprint. We also delivered on our other growth initiatives: adding tenants to increase occupancy and launching several redevelopment projects to enhance the value of our core assets. Our Community Centered Property, small space business model differentiates us in our industry and continues to deliver strong upwardly trending operating results such as our record FFO-Core,” said James C. Mastandrea, Whitestone's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In 2012, we are committed to further portfolio expansion via acquisitions, as well as internal growth resulting from our focus on occupancy and select redevelopment supported by our strong balance sheet.”

During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company deployed approximately $81 million towards acquisitions of value-add Community Centered PropertiesTM in its target markets, including $47 million in acquisitions that were completed in the fourth quarter, which contributed only partially to 2011 results.

Whitestone's 2010 results, except Funds From Operations (“FFO”)-Core, include in income a portion of an insurance settlement for damages to the Company's Houston communities from Hurricane Ike, which was $0.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted common share and operating partnership (“OP”) unit.

FFO-Core per diluted common share and OP unit was $0.25, as compared to $0.28 per diluted common share and OP unit for the same period in 2010. FFO-Core per diluted common share and OP unit was impacted by the issuance of common shares in May 2011.
