EastGroup Properties, Inc. (NYSE: EGP) announced today the results of its operations for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2015.

Commenting on EastGroup's performance, Marshall Loeb, CEO, stated, "During the fourth quarter, we continued our steady growth in funds from operations with a 3.3% increase in FFO per share as compared to the same quarter last year. For the full year 2015, FFO per share grew 5.8% as compared to 2014. We have now achieved FFO per share increases as compared to the previous year's quarter in eighteen of the last nineteen quarters and year-to-year increases for the past five years. In addition, 2015 FFO per share is the highest in EastGroup's history.

"Quarter-end occupancy was 96.1% which was our tenth consecutive quarter of 95% or above which basically represents stabilized full occupancy for a multi-tenant industrial company. This occupancy and positive rent spreads generated positive same property net operating income growth with and without straight-line rent adjustments. This is further significant given a material decline in lease termination fees versus 2014.

"During 2016, we plan to prudently recycle capital and start new developments which will further geographically diversify our portfolio by year-end. Towards that end, we are pleased to see forecasted annual development starts remain consistent with prior years at roughly $100 million. Our development program has been a great creator of value for our shareholders."

FUNDS FROM OPERATIONS For the quarter ended December 31, 2015, funds from operations (FFO) attributable to common stockholders were $.94 per share compared to $.91 per share for the same quarter of 2014, an increase of 3.3%.

Same PNOI increased 0.9% for the quarter ended December 31, 2015, compared to the same quarter in 2014; excluding termination fees in both periods, same PNOI increased 1.9% for the quarter. Without straight-line rent adjustments, same PNOI increased 0.5%; excluding termination fees in both periods, same PNOI without straight-line rent adjustments increased 2.0% for the quarter.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, FFO was $3.67 per share compared to $3.47 per share for 2014, an increase of 5.8% per share.

PROPERTY ACQUISITIONS AND SALES In October, the Company acquired two operating properties in Austin in separate transactions as part of Section 1031 reverse exchange transactions. Southpark Corporate Center contains two multi-tenant business distribution buildings totaling 176,000 square feet and is currently 100% leased to six customers. The property, which was purchased for $19.3 million, is located in the city's southeast airport submarket. Springdale Business Center was purchased for $12.3 million and contains two multi-tenant business distribution buildings totaling 159,000 square feet. The property, which is located along the dividing line of the city's east and northeast submarkets, is currently 100% leased to eight customers.

EastGroup is under contract to sell its Northwest Point Distribution and Service Centers in Houston.  The sale of the properties, which contain 232,000 square feet, is expected to close in February, generating gross sales proceeds of approximately $15.6 million.  The Company expects to record a gain on sale in first quarter which will not be included in FFO.

DEVELOPMENT In October, EastGroup acquired 7.8 acres of development land in close proximity to the Falcon Field Airport in Mesa, Arizona for $1.3 million. The site is expected to accommodate the future development of a 96,000 square foot business distribution building to be named Falcon Field Business Center.

EastGroup began construction of two development projects during the fourth quarter of 2015: Alamo Ridge III, a 100% pre-leased, 135,000 square foot business distribution building in San Antonio, and South 35th Avenue, a 124,000 square foot redevelopment project in Phoenix.

During 2015, the Company initiated construction of 11 development projects containing 1,283,000 square feet. The developments are detailed in the table below.

DIVIDENDS EastGroup paid cash dividends of $.60 per share in the fourth quarter of 2015, which was the Company's 144th consecutive quarterly cash distribution.  EastGroup has increased or maintained its dividend for 23 consecutive years and increased it 20 years during that period. The Company has also increased the dividend in each of the last four years.  The Company's payout ratio of dividends to FFO was 64% for the year.  The annualized dividend rate of $2.40 per share yielded 4.5% on the closing stock price of $53.39 on January 29, 2016.

FINANCIAL STRENGTH AND FLEXIBILITY EastGroup continues to maintain a strong and flexible balance sheet.  Debt-to-total market capitalization was 36.4% at December 31, 2015.  For the fourth quarter, the Company had both interest and fixed charge coverage ratios of 4.4x and a debt to earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) ratio of 6.5x. For the year, EastGroup had both interest and fixed charge coverage ratios of 4.4x and a debt to EBITDA ratio of 6.7x.

Total debt at December 31, 2015 was $1,032.2 million comprised of $530.0 million of unsecured debt, $351.4 million of secured debt, and $150.8 million of unsecured bank credit facilities.

In October, EastGroup issued $75 million of senior unsecured private placement notes with two insurance companies. The 10-year notes have a weighted average interest rate of 3.98% with semi-annual interest payments. The notes will not be and have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements.

DEFINITIONS The Company's chief decision makers use two primary measures of operating results in making decisions:  (1) property net operating income (PNOI), defined as Income from real estate operations less Expenses from real estate operations (including market-based internal management fee expense) plus the Company's share of income and property operating expenses from its less-than-wholly-owned real estate investments, and (2) funds from operations attributable to common stockholders (FFO).  EastGroup defines FFO consistent with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' definition, as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding gains or losses from sales of depreciable real estate property and impairment losses, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

PNOI and FFO are supplemental industry reporting measurements used to evaluate the performance of the Company's investments in real estate assets and its operating results. The Company believes that the exclusion of depreciation and amortization in the industry's calculations of PNOI and FFO provides supplemental indicators of the properties' performance since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions.  PNOI and FFO as calculated by the Company may not be comparable to similarly titled but differently calculated measures for other REITs.  Investors should be aware that items excluded from or added back to FFO are significant components in understanding and assessing the Company's financial performance.

CONFERENCE CALL EastGroup will host a conference call and webcast to discuss the results of its fourth quarter and review the Company's current operations on Tuesday, February 2, 2016, at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.  A live broadcast of the conference call is available by dialing 1-877-876-9177 (conference ID: EastGroup) or by webcast through a link on the Company's website at eastgroup.net.  If you are unable to listen to the live conference call, a telephone and webcast replay will be available on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.  The telephone replay will be available until Tuesday, February 9, 2016, and can be accessed by dialing 1-800-757-4768.  Also, the replay of the webcast can be accessed through a link on the Company's website at eastgroup.net and will be available until Tuesday, February 9, 2016.
