MEDICAL PROPERTIES TRUST INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Results of Operations and Financial Condition

February 11, 2014



Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On the fourth quarter 2013 earnings call held on February 6, 2014, the Company correctly reported the "same-store" acute care hospital portfolio lease coverage ratio as being "essentially flat year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter." The Company inadvertently misstated the lease coverage ratio as 5.8 times instead of 5.4 times for the trailing twelve month period ended November 30, 2013. The Company does not believe this inadvertent misstatement to be material and is furnishing this Current Report to correct the public record.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be deemed "filed" for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liability of that section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. In addition, this information shall not be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing of Medical Properties Trust, Inc. with the Securities and Exchange Commission, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in any such filing.
