Commenting on the quarter, CEO of Optibase, Amir Philips, said, “We are pleased with our second quarter operating results as our operating fundamentals have remained stable and are in line with our expectations. Due to the fluctuation of the Swiss Franc against the USD, we have recorded financial expenses this quarter, compared to financial income in the previous quarter of 2012. Depending on the fluctuation of the Swiss Franc against the USD, our financial income, net may continue to fluctuate in the quarters to come. Our primary indicators for our real estate operations are FFO and Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization ('EBITDA')." FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used by the real estate industry to measure the operating performance of real estate companies. FFO should not be considered as a substitute for net income determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP as a measure of financial performance. Amir concluded, “We are still actively looking for additional investment opportunities. Nevertheless, current economic conditions and the tightening of loan criteria by financial institutions may reduce the availability of favorable financing for new transactions and affect their attractiveness."
