Company Release - 5/15/2008 7:00 AM ET

NEW YORK, May 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Care Investment Trust Inc. (NYSE: CRE) ("Care"), a real estate investment and finance company investing in healthcare-related real estate and commercial mortgage debt, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008. Net income totaled $0.5 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share. This reflects the impact of the Company's transformation to an equity REIT, which began with previously announced investments in Cambridge Holdings Incorporated ("Cambridge") and Senior Management Concepts, LLC ("SMC") on December 31, 2007. The Company's non-cash loss from investments in partially-owned entities was $1.1 million, largely as a result of depreciation on the Cambridge properties at the Company's stepped-up investment basis.

Funds from Operations (FFO) for the first quarter of 2008 were $2.8 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share. Adjusted Funds from Operation (AFFO) amounted to $3.5 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted share. FFO is the result of adding back to net income our share of depreciation and amortization of real property related to our equity in the Cambridge properties. In addition, AFFO adds back other non-cash expenses such as stock-based compensation and the unrealized loss on the revaluation of partnership units issued in connection with our investment in the Cambridge properties. The upward revaluation of the partnership units primarily resulted from Cambridge posting better than anticipated results for the quarter.

F. Scott Kellman, Chief Executive Officer, stated, "Care's year end equity investments significantly mitigated the effect of the first quarter's downward trend in LIBOR. We are pleased to note that implementation of our equity strategy offset the effect of falling rates on our mortgage portfolio, and allowed us to report $0.17 of AFFO for the quarter".

Portfolio Activity

Investment in Net Leased Property

On March 31, 2008, Care acquired Sioux City II, a 35 unit Alzheimer's facility in Sioux City, Iowa, from Bickford Senior Living Group, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of EBY Realty Group, LLC, for $3.5 million, and entered into a sale leaseback arrangement with the seller who remains as the operator of the property. The property is triple-net leased to the operator for 15 years at an initial lease rate equal to nine percent of the purchase price with three percent annual escalations. As the transaction closed on March 31, 2008, there is no income or loss recorded related to this investment for the period ended March 31, 2008.

Loan Portfolio

During the 2008 first quarter, the Company recorded approximately $10.9 million of loans to new and existing portfolio clients. Net investments in loans were $246.2 million as of March 31, 2008, all of which were floating rate. The weighted average spread on the portfolio at March 31, 2008 was 3.43 percent over one-month LIBOR and the average maturity of the portfolio was approximately three years. The effective yield on the portfolio was 7.85 percent for the quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Operating Activities

The Company generated total revenues of $4.8 million during the 2008 first quarter which included interest income on investments from loans of $4.7 million and other income of $0.1 million. Other income resulted primarily from interest earned on cash balances.

The Company incurred $2.7 million in operating expenses in the three months ended March 31, 2008, which included $1.3 million in management fees, $1.1 million in marketing, general and administrative expenses, and $0.3 million in other expense. Other expense resulted from an accrued loss on a prepayment of a loan made subsequent to the end of the quarter.

Care's net loss from investments in partially-owned entities amounted to $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 and consisted of a $1.4 million loss related to the Company's investment in the Cambridge properties, offset by $0.3 million in equity income from the Company's investment in SMC.

Interest expense on the $38.5 million outstanding under the Company's warehouse line of credit amounted to $0.4 million for the first quarter of 2008. The effective interest rate paid on the debt was 4.39 percent.

Liquidity and Funding

At March 31, 2008, Care had $14.9 million in cash and cash equivalents. On April 15, 2008, a borrower prepaid its current loan obligation of $27.2 million, along with a $0.3 million prepayment fee, in accordance with the terms of the underlying loan agreement. The Company plans to redeploy these funds for additional investments in healthcare-related real estate. Currently, Care has $44.2 million in cash and cash equivalents.

Dividends

The Company's Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.17 per share of common stock for the first quarter 2008. The dividend is payable on June 6, 2008 to common shareholders of record on May 23, 2008.

Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations

Funds from Operations, or FFO, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is a widely recognized measure of REIT performance. The Company computes FFO in accordance with standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, which may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not compute FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition, or that interpret the NAREIT definition differently than we do.

NAREIT currently defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from debt restructuring and sales of properties, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Adjusted Funds from Operations

Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO, is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company computes AFFO in accordance with our management agreement's definition of FFO and as such it may not be comparable to AFFO reported by other REITs that do not compute AFFO on the same basis. The Company's management agreement defines FFO, for purposes of the agreement, to mean net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (losses) from debt restructuring and gains (losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization on real estate assets and non-cash equity compensation expense, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures; provided, that the foregoing calculation of Funds From Operations shall be adjusted to exclude one-time events pursuant to changes in GAAP and may be adjusted to exclude other non-cash charges after discussion between the Manager and the independent directors, and approval by the majority of the independent directors in the case of non-cash charges.

The Company believes that FFO and AFFO are helpful to investors as measures of the performance of a REIT because, along with cash flow from operating activities, financing activities and investing activities, FFO and AFFO provide investors with an indication of our ability to incur and service debt, to make investments and to fund other cash needs. AFFO, as defined in our agreement with our Manager, also provides the basis for the computation of the amount of any Management Incentive Fee earned by our Manager.

Neither FFO nor AFFO represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and they should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), as an indication of our financial performance or cash flow from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP), as a measure of our liquidity, nor are they indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions.
