Press Release

Getty Realty Corp. Announces Financial Results for the Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2006

Company Release - 2/6/2007 5:00 PM ET

JERICHO, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Getty Realty Corp. (NYSE-GTY) today reported its financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006.

Net earnings were $9.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2006 and $11.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2005, a decrease of $1.2 million. Net earnings were $42.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2006 and $45.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2005, a decrease of $2.7 million.

Revenues from rental properties increased by $1.0 million to $72.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2006 due to additional rental revenues from properties acquired in 2005 and 2006 and rent escalations. The increases in revenues from acquisitions and escalations were offset by lower deferred rental income, as described below, which resulted in a net decrease in revenues from rental properties of $0.2 million to 18.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2006. Net earnings for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 decreased principally due to higher environmental, general and administrative and interest expenses and lower income tax benefits, which were partially offset by lower rental property expenses as compared to the prior year periods.

Mr. Leo Liebowitz, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer commented, "I am pleased that the acquisitions completed in 2005 and 2006 continue to be accretive despite the increase in interest expense caused by higher interest rates. These acquisitions contributed additional rent revenues of $0.3 million for the quarter and $1.3 million for the year end periods. Although environmental expenses for 2006 have increased, when they are being compared to the atypically low expenses reported in the comparable 2005 periods, we remain on target with our environmental program. As we have previously reported, we continue to expect quarter to quarter fluctuations in accrued estimated environmental expenses. Our results, and the cash flow provided by our business, for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 remain in line with our expectations."

Funds from operations, or FFO, were $11.5 million and adjusted funds from operations, or AFFO, were $10.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2006. FFO decreased by $0.5 million, and AFFO increased by $.02 million, as compared to the prior year period. FFO were $49.0 million and AFFO were $45.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2006. FFO decreased by $3.2 million, and AFFO decreased by $1.3 million, as compared to the prior year period.

The changes in FFO and AFFO for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 were primarily due to the changes in net earnings described above but exclude the improvement in earnings due to lower depreciation and amortization expense for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 and higher gains on dispositions of real estate of $0.3 million for the year end period. The changes in FFO and AFFO also exclude the reduction in earnings due to lower gains on property dispositions of $0.7 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2006. Decreases in deferred rental revenues for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 and in income tax benefit for the year end period (which are included in net earnings and FFO but are excluded from AFFO) aggregated $0.7 million for the quarter and $2.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to the respective prior year periods. FFO and AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP measures of the performance of real estate investment trusts and are defined and reconciled to net earnings in the financial tables at the end of this release.

Diluted earnings per share was $0.40 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2006, a decrease of $0.05 per share as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2005. Diluted FFO per share was $0.46 per share, a decrease of $0.02 per share as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2005. Diluted AFFO per share was $0.44 per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2006, an increase of $0.01 per share as compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2005.

Diluted earnings per share was $1.73 per share for the year ended December 31, 2006, a decrease of $0.11 per share compared to the year ended December 31, 2005. Diluted FFO per share was $1.98 per share, a decrease of $0.13 per share as compared to the year ended December 31, 2005. Diluted AFFO per share for the year ended December 31, 2006 was $1.83 per share, a decrease of $0.05 per share as compared to the year ended December 31, 2005.

Rent received was $17.4 million for the quarter and $69.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared with $16.9 million for the quarter and $67.2 million for the year period ended in 2005. The increases in rent received were primarily due to rental income from property acquisitions and rent escalations. In addition to rent received, revenues from rental properties include deferred rental revenues accrued due to recognition of rental income on a straight-line basis. Deferred rental revenues decreased to $0.7 million for the quarter and $3.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to $1.4 million and $4.2 million for the respective prior year periods. As a result, revenues from rental properties decreased by $0.2 million for the quarter and increased by $1.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to the respective prior year periods.

Rental property expenses decreased by $1.7 million to $2.3 million for the quarter and by $2.0 million to $9.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2006. The decreases in rental property expenses for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2006 were primarily due to a $1.5 million non-recurring charge recorded in the fourth quarter of 2005 due to the change in accounting for rent expense from a contractual to a straight-line basis. The decreases in rental property expenses also reflect the effect of lease terminations. The impact on the results for the quarter from the $1.5 million charge was offset by $0.8 million of income related to prior periods for early lease terminations of $0.3 million and a gain on dispositions of real estate resulting from a taking by eminent domain of $0.5 million. As a result, net earnings for the quarter ended December 31, 2005 were negatively impacted by $0.7 million

Environmental expenses, net for the quarter ended December 31, 2006 increased by $1.3 million to $1.9 million as compared to $0.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2005. The increase was primarily due to a $1.2 million increase in the change in estimated environmental costs. Environmental expenses, net for the year ended December 31, 2006 increased by $3.1 million to $5.5 million as compared to $2.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2005. The increase was primarily due to a $1.9 million increase in the change in estimated environmental costs and a $1.2 million increase in environmental related litigation expenses and legal fees. Change in estimated environmental costs increased in 2006 as compared to 2005 due to additional expenses resulting from the imposition by state regulators of more stringent remediation requirements for projects in the State of New Jersey and an increase in rates paid for environmental remediation services. Environmental related litigation expenses and legal fees were $1.4 million for 2006 as compared to $0.2 million for 2005, which prior period includes a $0.6 million net reduction in environmental related litigation loss reserve estimates.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.3 million to $1.5 million for the quarter and by $0.7 million to $5.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to $1.2 million and $4.9 million for the respective prior year periods. The increase was due to increased insurance expense and professional fees for the quarter and higher professional fees for the year end period.

Interest expense increased by $0.3 million to $0.9 million for the quarter and by $1.8 million to $3.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to $0.6 million and $1.8 million for the respective prior year periods. Interest expense increased primarily due to additional borrowings used to finance the acquisition of properties and higher interest rates. In April 2006 Getty Realty Corp. entered into a five year interest rate swap which effectively fixed the LIBOR component of the interest rate determined under its credit agreement on $45.0 million of its borrowings.

Other income decreased by $0.7 million to $0.5 million for the quarter and increased by $0.3 million to $1.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to the respective prior year periods. Other income includes gains on dispositions of real estate, which is excluded from FFO and AFFO, of $0.4 million for the quarter and $1.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2006, as compared to $1.1 million and $1.3 million for the respective prior year periods.

In addition to measurements defined by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), Getty also focuses on funds from operations ("FFO") and adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") to measure its performance. FFO is generally considered to be an appropriate supplemental non-GAAP measure of the performance of REITs. FFO is defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts as net earnings before depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, gains or losses on dispositions of real estate, non-FFO items reported in discontinued operations and extraordinary items. Other REITs may use definitions of FFO and/or AFFO that are different than Getty's and, accordingly, may not be comparable.

Getty believes that FFO is helpful to investors in measuring its performance because FFO excludes various items included in GAAP net earnings that do not relate to, or are not indicative of, Getty's fundamental operating performance such as gains or losses from property dispositions and depreciation and amortization of real estate assets. In Getty's case, however, GAAP net earnings and FFO include the significant impact of deferred rental revenue (straight-line rental revenue) on its recognition of revenues from rental properties, which results primarily from fixed rental increases scheduled under certain leases with its tenants. In accordance with GAAP, the aggregate minimum rent due over the initial term of these leases is recognized on a straight-line basis rather than when due. GAAP net earnings and FFO for the year ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 also include income tax benefits recognized due to the elimination of, or net reduction in, amounts accrued for uncertain tax positions related to being taxed as a C-corp. prior to 2001. As a result, Getty pays particular attention to AFFO, a supplemental non-GAAP performance measure that Getty defines as FFO less straight-line rental revenue and income tax benefit. In Getty's view, AFFO provides a more accurate depiction than FFO of the impact of scheduled rent increases under these leases and Getty's election to be taxed as a REIT beginning in 2001. Neither FFO nor AFFO represent cash generated from operating activities calculated in accordance with GAAP and therefore these measures should not be considered an alternative for GAAP net earnings or as a measure of liquidity.
