This development totals 9.10 MW          and 44,000 CRSF.        oLowered interest rates on ACC3 Term Loan and Unsecured Credit          Facility. Increased Unsecured Credit Facility from $400 million to          $560 million.        oExecuted three leases totaling 7.10 MW and 47,166 CRSF.        oCommenced three leases totaling 9.65 MW and 60,900 CRSF.    oSubsequent to the Second Quarter 2014:         oPlaced ACC7 Phase I into service 17% pre-leased on a critical load          basis. This development totals 11.89 MW and 70,000 CRSF.        oExecuted one lease totaling 1.28 MW and 5,370 CRSF at NJ1. This          lease is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2014. NJ1          Phase I is now 59% leased on a critical load basis and 70% leased on          a CRSF basis.        oLowered interest rate on $250 million Unsecured Term Loan.  Hossein Fateh, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Increasing levels of customer demand drove strong leasing results in the quarter - both in DFT's existing data centers and in the pre-leasing of our development sites. We are equipped to capture more demand with the 21 new megawatts of development we've placed in service in the vibrant data center hubs of Northern Virginia and Santa Clara. Leasing momentum and our financial results allow us to confidently increase the mid-point of our 2014 Normalized FFO guidance by $0.05 per share."  Second Quarter 2014 Results  For the quarter ended June30, 2014, earnings were $0.32 per share compared to earnings of $0.18 per share for the second quarter of 2013, an increase of 78%. Revenues increased 11%, or $10.4 million, to $102.0 million for the second quarter of 2014 over the second quarter of 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily due to new leases commencing.  Normalized FFO for the quarter ended June30, 2014 was $0.61 per share compared to $0.47 per share for the second quarter of 2013. The increase of $0.14 per share, or 30%, from the prior year quarter was primarily due to the following:    oHigher operating income excluding depreciation of $0.08 per share, and   oLower interest expense of $0.06 per share due to lower interest rates and     higher capitalized interest.  Normalized FFO of $0.61 per share for the quarter ended June30, 2014 exceeded the upper end of our guidance range by $0.01 per share due to lower operating and general and administrative expenses.  First Half 2014 Results  For the six months ended June30, 2014, earnings were $0.63 per share compared to earnings of $0.30 per share for the first half of 2013, an increase of 110%. Revenues increased 14%, or $24.7 million, to $204.0 million for the first six months of 2014 over the year ago period. The increase in revenues was primarily due to new leases commencing.  Normalized FFO for the six months ended June30, 2014 was $1.20 per share compared to $0.89 per share for the first half of 2013. The increase of $0.31 per share, or 35%, from the year ago period was primarily due to the following:    oHigher operating income excluding depreciation of $0.19 per share, and   oLower interest expense of $0.12 per share due to lower interest rates and     higher capitalized interest.  Portfolio Update  During the second quarter 2014, we:    oExecuted and commenced two leases with a weighted average lease term of     5.1 years totaling 5.10 MW and 38,989 CRSF.         oOne lease at VA3 totaling 2.60 MW and 27,952 CRSF.        oOne lease at SC1 Phase IIA totaling 2.50 MW and 11,037 CRSF.    oExecuted one pre-lease at ACC7 Phase I totaling 2.00 MW and 8,177 CRSF     with a lease term of 12.0 years. This lease is expected to commence later     this quarter.   oIn addition to the SC1 Phase IIA lease noted above, commenced another     lease totaling 4.55 MW and 21,911 CRSF at SC1 Phase IIA.  Year to date, we:    oSigned five leases with a weighted average lease term of 6.5 years     totaling 8.86 MW and 58,117 CRSF that are expected to generate     approximately $8.9 million of annualized GAAP base rent revenue.   oExtended the maturity of three leases totaling 3.01 MW and 23,072 CRSF by     a weighted average of 1.8 years with a weighted average decrease to cash     base rent of 0.7% and a weighted average increase to GAAP base rent of     6.3%.   oCommenced five leases totaling 10.57 MW and 69,281 CRSF.  Development Update  We placed ACC7 Phase I (11.89 MW) and SC1 Phase IIA (9.10 MW) into service. SC1 Phase IIA was 77% leased and ACC7 Phase I was 17% leased at their respective placed into service dates.  We have begun development of SC1 Phase IIB (9.10 MW) and CH2 Phase I (7.10 MW). We anticipate SC1 Phase IIB will be placed into service late first quarter of 2015 and CH2 Phase I will be placed into service in the third quarter of 2015.  Balance Sheet and Liquidity  In May 2014, we exercised the accordion feature on our Unsecured Credit Facility, increasing its total capacity from $400 million to $560 million. We also amended the facility to expand the accordion feature to provide us with the option to increase the total commitment to $800 million. The interest rate was reduced 30 basis points from LIBOR + 1.85% to LIBOR + 1.55%, and the unused fee decreased 10 basis points. The facility's maturity date has been extended from March 2016 to May 2018 and still includes a one-year extension option.  In May 2014, we also executed an amendment that reduced the interest rate on our $115 million ACC3 Term loan 30 basis points from LIBOR + 1.85% to LIBOR + 1.55%.  In July 2014, we executed an amendment to our $250 million Unsecured Term Loan that reduced the interest rate from LIBOR + 1.75% to LIBOR + 1.50% and extended the maturity date from February 2019 to July 2019.  We have a common stock repurchase program that allows for purchases up to $122.2 million that expires on December 31, 2014. In the first half of 2014, we did not repurchase any shares, and $122.2 million is still available for purchase.  As of June30, 2014, we had $56 million of cash and $560 million of available capacity under our revolving credit facility.  Dividend  Our second quarter 2014 dividend of $0.35 per share was paid on July 15, 2014. The anticipated 2014 annualized dividend of $1.40 per share represents an estimated Normalized FFO payout ratio of 58% at the midpoint of our current 2014 guidance.  Third Quarter and Full Year 2014 Guidance  Our Normalized FFO guidance range is $0.60 to $0.62 per share for the third quarter of 2014.  Our 2014 Normalized FFO guidance range was increased to $2.38 to $2.44 per share as compared to prior guidance of $2.32 to $2.40 per share. The lower end of this range assumes no additional leases will be executed through the end of this calendar year. The assumptions underlying this guidance can be found on page 15 of this earnings release.  The $0.05 per share increase in the midpoint of guidance is primarily due to:    oHigher operating income excluding depreciation of $0.04 per share     primarily from leases executed since our last earnings call and lower     general and administrative expenses.   oLower interest expense of $0.01 per share due to lowering the interest     rate on our Unsecured Term Loan, as described above, and lower projected     borrowings for 2014.

We calculate 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 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. We also present 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. We use 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. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of equity REITs, FFO may be used by investors as a basis to compare our 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 our properties that result from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effects and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our 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 our FFO. Therefore, we believe that in order to facilitate a clear understanding of our 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 our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to meet our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends or make distributions. We present FFO with adjustments to arrive at Normalized FFO. Normalized FFO is FFO attributable to common shares and units excluding gain or loss on early extinguishment of debt and gain or loss on derivative instruments. We also present FFO with supplemental adjustments to arrive at Adjusted FFO ("AFFO"). AFFO is Normalized FFO excluding straight-line revenue, compensation paid with Company common shares, below market lease amortization net of above market lease amortization, 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 our 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 our cash needs including our ability to pay dividends.

Gross building area is the entire building area, including CRSF (the     portion of gross building area where our customers' computer servers are (2) located), common areas, areas controlled by us (such as the mechanical,     telecommunications and utility rooms) and, in some facilities, individual     office and storage space leased on an as available basis to our customers.     Percentage leased is expressed as a percentage of CRSF or critical load,     as applicable, that is subject to an executed lease. Leases executed as of (3) July 1, 2014 represent $286 million of base rent on a GAAP basis and $300     million of base rent on a cash basis over the next twelve months. Both     amounts include $18 million of revenue from management fees over the next     twelve months.     Percentage commenced is expressed as a percentage of CRSF or critical (4) load, as applicable, where the lease has commenced under generally     accepted accounting principles.     Critical load (also referred to as IT load or load used by customers' (5) servers or related equipment) is the power available for exclusive use by     customers expressed in terms of megawatt, or MW, or kilowatt, or kW (1 MW     is equal to 1,000 kW).
