Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results Revenues up 16% ACC6 Phase II opens at 100% Leased PR Newswire WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013 WASHINGTON, Feb. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc. (NYSE: DFT) today reported results for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.All per share results are reported on a fully diluted basis. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120104/MM29780LOGO ) Highlights oAt year-end, the company's overall operating portfolio was 90% leased with the stabilized portfolio at 90% leased, the two properties remaining in the non-stabilized portfolio at 88% leased and the one completed development, ACC6 Phase II, 100% leased. oQuarterly Highlights: oReported fourth quarter Funds from Operations ("FFO") of $0.38 per share representing a 2.7% increase over the prior year quarter. oIncreased the quarterly dividend by 33% from $0.15 per share to $0.20 per share. oSigned five leases totaling 13.62 megawatts ("MW") and 73,582 raised square feet. oCommenced two leases totaling 1.00 MW and 5,500 raised square feet. oAs reported in the third quarter earnings release, extended the maturity of one lease totaling 13.90 MW and 80,000 raised square feet by 8.2 years. This lease is now scheduled to expire from 2024 to 2026. Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The volume of new leasing in 2012 was the best in our history. In 2012, we signed 14 new leases totaling 41.5 MW of critical load and four lease extensions totaling 23.8 MW of critical load. Three of the four lease extensions were with tenants who also signed 16.1 MW of new leases in 2012. Also, on January 1, 2013 we placed ACC6 Phase II into service 100% leased." Fourth Quarter 2012 Results For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, the company reported earnings of $0.11 per share compared to $0.12 per share for the fourth quarter of 2011.Revenues increased 16%, or $11.6 million, to $86.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012 over the fourth quarter of 2011.The increase in revenues is primarily due to new leases commencing. FFO for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $0.38 per share compared to $0.37 per share for the fourth quarter of 2011. The increase of $0.01 per share from the prior year's quarter is primarily due to: oA positive impact of $0.09 per share from higher operating income excluding depreciation and the reserve and charge discussed below ($0.13 per share from new leases commencing offset by $0.04 per share of unreimbursed property operating expenses, real estate taxes and insurance related to the properties that are not fully leased). oA negative impact of $0.04 per share included in other expenses from a receivables reserve set up for one tenant that restructured its lease obligations with us. The tenant leases approximately 7.45 MW in four different locations and the company has agreed to relinquish a total of approximately 16%, or 1.2 MW in aggregate, at two locations, Ashburn and Reston, Virginia. Also, under this restructuring, this tenant's outstanding accounts receivable and deferred rent receivable related to the returned space has been converted into a note receivable, the terms of which require the payment of principal and interest over the next four years. Additionally, under this restructuring this tenant has the right to defer up to two-thirds of base rent due over the next 18 months at NJ1 in Piscataway, New Jersey. If deferred, the base rent would be added to the note. oA negative impact of $0.03 per share from higher financing charges ($0.02 per share of lower capitalized interest expense and $0.01 per share of additional preferred dividends). oA negative impact of $0.01 per share included in other expenses for pursuit costs for deals that are no longer probable. Year Ended December 31, 2012 Results For the year ended December 31, 2012, the company reported earnings of $0.41 per share compared to $0.71 per share for the year ago period. The decrease of $0.30 in earnings per share is primarily due to lower capitalized interest, higher preferred dividends and the reserve and charge noted above. Revenues increased 16%, or $45.0 million, to $332.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 over the prior year. The increase in revenues is primarily due to new leases commencing. FFO for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $1.48 per share compared to $1.61 per share for the prior year. The decrease of $0.13 per share is primarily due to: oA positive impact of $0.26 per share from higher operating income excluding depreciation and the reserve and charge discussed above ($0.42 per share from new leases commencing offset by $0.16 per share of unreimbursed property operating expenses, real estate taxes and insurance related to the properties that are not fully leased). oA negative impact of $0.34 per share from higher financing charges ($0.26 per share of lower capitalized interest expense and $0.08 per share of additional preferred dividends). oA negative impact of $0.05 per share from the receivables reserve and deal pursuit costs noted above. Portfolio Update During the fourth quarter 2012, the company: oSigned five leases with a weighted average lease term of 6.9 years totaling 13.62 MW and 73,582 raised square feet. oTwo leases were at CH1 totaling 3.03 MW and 21,332 raised square feet. One lease commenced in the fourth quarter of 2012, a portion of the other lease commenced in the first quarter of 2013 and the remaining portion of this lease totaling 1.30 MW is expected to commence in equal parts in the third and fourth quarters of 2013. oOne lease was at ACC6 Phase II totaling 4.33 MW and 22,000 raised square feet. This lease is expected to commence in total prior to the end of the first quarter of 2013. oOne lease was at SC1 totaling 5.69 MW and 27,500 raised square feet. A portion of this lease commenced in the first quarter of 2013 and the remaining portion totaling 1.14 MW is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2013. oOne lease was at NJ1 totaling 0.57 MW and 2,750 raised square feet. This lease commenced in the fourth quarter of 2012. oSigned one lease extension for 8.2 years at ACC3 totaling 13.90 MW and 80,000 raised square feet. In 2012, the company: oSigned 14 leases with a weighted average lease term of 9.9 years totaling 41.48 MW and 213,295 raised square feet that are expected to generate approximately $43.8 million of annualized GAAP base rent revenue. This compares to 14 leases, 24.92 MW and 133,716 raised square feet for the prior year. oCommenced 15 leases totaling 31.89 MW and 168,355 raised square feet totaling approximately $39.6 million of annualized GAAP base rent revenue. This compares to 11 leases, 13.46 MW and 65,093 raised square feet for the prior year. oSigned four lease extensions with three tenants totaling 23.81 MW and 148,687 raised square feet for a weighted average additional 7.5 years as compared to one lease extension, 9.60 MW and 90,000 raised square feet for the prior year. Subsequent to year-end, the company commenced portions of six leases totaling 13.65 MW and 71,069 raised square feet. Balance Sheet and Liquidity The company announced in November a twelve-month common stock repurchase program of up to $80 million. To date, the company has not elected to utilize this program. At year-end, the company had $23.6 million of cash available on its balance sheet and $207 million of available capacity under its revolving credit facility. First Quarter and Full Year 2013 Guidance The company has established an FFO guidance range of $0.38 to $0.40 per share for the first quarter of 2013. The $0.01 per share difference between the company's fourth quarter 2012 FFO of $0.38 per share and the midpoint of the first quarter guidance range is primarily due to new leases commencing. The company has established an FFO guidance range of $1.76 to $1.90 per share for the full year 2013. The assumptions underlying this guidance can be found on page 15 of this press release. The $0.35 per share, or 24%, increase between the company's full year 2012 FFO of $1.48 and the expected mid-point of the company's guidance range for full year 2013 is primarily due to: oA net positive impact of $0.39 per share from higher operating income excluding depreciation. This includes oA positive impact of $0.35 per share primarily from new leases commencing in 2012 and 2013, oA positive impact of $0.04 per share related to lower unreimbursed property operating expenses, real estate taxes and insurance, and oA negative impact of $0.04 per share from lower capitalized interest expense.

The Company calculates FFO in accordance with the definition that was adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. FFO, as defined by NAREIT, represents net income determined in accordance with GAAP, excluding extraordinary items as defined under GAAP, impairment charges on depreciable real estate assets (1) and gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated operating real estate assets, plus specified non-cash items, such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company also presents FFO attributable to common shares and OP units, which is FFO excluding preferred stock dividends. FFO attributable to common shares and OP units per share is calculated on a basis consistent with net income attributable to common shares and OP units and reflects adjustments to net income for preferred stock dividends. The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating expenses. The Company also believes that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare the Company's operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes real estate related depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of the Company's properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of the Company's properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact the Company's results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company's performance is limited. While FFO is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance of equity REITs, other equity REITs may use different methodologies for calculating FFO and, accordingly, FFO as disclosed by such other REITs may not be comparable to the Company's FFO. Therefore, the Company believes that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of its historical operating results, FFO should be examined in conjunction with net income as presented in the consolidated statements of operations. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income or to cash flow from operating activities (each as computed in accordance with GAAP) or as an indicator of the Company's liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to meet the Company's cash needs, including its ability to pay dividends or make distributions. The Company also presents FFO with supplemental adjustments to arrive at Adjusted FFO ("AFFO"). AFFO is FFO attributable to common shares and OP units excluding straight-line revenue, compensation paid with Company common shares, gain or loss on derivative instruments, acquisition of service agreements, below market lease amortization net of above market lease amortization early extinguishment of debt costs, non real estate depreciation and amortization, amortization of deferred financing costs, improvements to real estate and capitalized leasing commissions. AFFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and therefore should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow provided by operations as a measure of liquidity and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund the Company's cash needs including the Company's ability to pay dividends. In addition, AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements employed by other companies. The Company's management uses AFFO in management reports to provide a measure of REIT operating performance that can be compared to other companies using AFFO. DUPONT FABROS TECHNOLOGY, INC.
