Distributions

Distributions to our unitholders are determined by our general partner. Our general partner has adopted a distribution policy under which our partnership currently pays quarterly cash distributions of $0.48 per unit.

This distribution policy targets a distribution level that is sustainable on a long-term basis while retaining sufficient liquidity for capital expenditures within our current operations and general purposes.

We believe that a distribution of 60% to 70% of funds from operations1 (FFO) will allow us to meet these objectives. In light of the per unit FFO growth that we foresee in our operations, we are targeting 5% to 9% annual distribution growth.

It is our current intention to review with our Board our distribution payout targets the first quarter of each year. From time-to-time our distributions may exceed these percentages as a result of acquisitions that are attractive on a long-term cash flow and/or total return basis but are not immediately accretive to FFO.

1 Funds from operations is equal to net income plus depreciation and amortization, deferred taxes and certain other items.
