(1) NOI, FFO, OFFO and AFFO are not measures recognized under IFRS and do   
    not have standardized meanings prescribed by IFRS. NOI, FFO, OFFO and   
    AFFO are supplemental measures of a company's performance and management
    believes that NOI, FFO, OFFO and AFFO are relevant measures of its      
    earnings performance and its ability to pay dividends on the Company's  
    common shares. The IFRS measurement most directly comparable to AFFO is 
    cash flow from operations.                                              
(2) Payout Ratio is calculated using dividends declared per share divided by
    the basic AFFO per share for the respective periods.                    

Fourth Quarter 2016

The Company generated NOI of $27.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016, representing an increase of $5.4 million or 24.5% over the comparable prior year period. Same property NOI increased by $0.4 million or 1.8% over the comparable prior year period.

OFFO increased by $3.7 million or 31.9% to $15.1 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to improved NOI contribution from same and newly acquired properties.

AFFO increased by $3.1 million or 25.1% to $15.2 million over the comparable prior year period. The increase was principally related to the increase in OFFO noted above, partially offset by timing of capital expenditures.
