REAL ESTATE AND FINANCING ACTIVITY $104.5 Million Stratford Square Refinancing The Company announced today the refinancing of the Stratford Square Mall, located in Bloomingdale, Illinois. The $104.5 million first mortgage closed May 8, 2007 with an initial term of 36 months and bearing interest at a floating rate of 115 basis points over LIBOR. The loan has two one-year extension options. On the closing date, $75 million of the loan proceeds were used to retire Stratford Square's outstanding $75 million first mortgage. The balance of the proceeds was placed into escrow and will be released to the Company to fund the completion of its redevelopment project. $50 Million of Convertible Preferred Shares The Company intends to issue up to $50 million of convertible preferred stock through the private placement of 2 million shares of 6.85% Series A Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares to Inland American Real Estate Trust, Inc., a public non-listed REIT sponsored by an affiliate of the Inland Real Estate Group of Companies. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, the Company issued $15 million of preferred stock on April 30, 2007. The Company is required to issue a total of $50 million by the end of the 12 month period following the close of this transaction. Under the terms of this transaction, and in accordance with New York Stock Exchange rules, the Company will seek shareholder approval to permit conversion of the preferred shares into common stock. Assuming an affirmative vote of Company shareholders, Inland American Real Estate Trust will have the option after June 30, 2009 to convert some or all of its outstanding preferred shares. Each preferred share is being issued at a price of $25.00 per share and, assuming an affirmative vote of Company shareholders, will be convertible, in whole or in part, at a conversion ratio of 1.77305 common shares to preferred shares. This conversion ratio is based upon a common share price of $14.10 per share. Assuming stockholder approval of convertibility, and if the preferred shareholders do not convert their shares to common stock, then commencing August of 2009, the Company may redeem the preferred shares without any redemption premium at the price of $25.00 per share. For more details regarding this transaction, please refer to the Company's 8-K filing dated April 16, 2006. The Company intends to utilize the net proceeds from the offering to provide capital for the redevelopment of its mall assets, to repay borrowings under its line of credit and for general corporate purposes. $25 Million Credit Agreement with an Affiliate of Kimco Realty Corporation The Company has executed a promissory note (the "Note") providing for loans aggregating up to $25 million from Kimco Capital Corp. ("Kimco"). No amount has yet been borrowed under the Note. Loan draws under the Note are optional on the part of the Company and will bear interest at the rate of seven percent per annum, payable monthly. Any outstanding principal amount will be due and payable on April 10, 2008, provided that the maturity of the Note may be extended to April 10, 2009 if the Company complies with certain performance criteria. The Company may prepay the outstanding principal amount under the Note in whole or in part at any time. In addition to the interest on the Note, Kimco will be paid a variable fee equal to (i) $500,000, multiplied by (ii) (a) the volume weighted average price of the Company's common stock as of a five-day period chosen by Kimco, minus (b) $13.00 per common share. If Kimco does not select a date for determination of the fee prior to termination of the Note, the Company will instead pay to Kimco $250,000 in additional interest. The Company intends to utilize the Kimco proceeds to provide capital for the redevelopment of its mall assets, to repay borrowings under its line of credit and for general corporate purposes. OTHER Appointment of New Board Member In connection with the Inland transaction, Mr. Thomas H. McAuley will be joining the Company's board of directors. Mr. McAuley, age 61, has been a Director of Inland Real Estate Corp. since 2004. Mr. McAuley is also currently the president of Inland Capital Markets Group, Inc., which is an advisor on real estate investments, including public REITs, to various entities within The Inland Real Estate Group of Companies, Inc. In order for the Company's Board of Directors to comply with the director independence rules of the New York Stock Exchange, Jim Bourg will resign his board seat prior to Mr. McAuley joining the Company's board. Jim Bourg will continue to be the Company's Chief Operating Officer and will attend all future board meetings. First Quarter Dividend of $0.2275 Per Share The Company announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly dividend of $0.2275 per common share for the quarter ending March 31, 2007. The dividend is payable on May 25, 2007 to shareholders of record at the close of business on May 18, 2007. Management's Internal Control Assessment As of December 31, 2006, the Company's management has determined that its controls over financial reporting contained a material weakness. The Company lacked the sufficient number of personnel to ensure that the financial statements were prepared on a timely basis. As a result, the Company was unable to adequately complete its necessary procedures on time. The lack of sufficient personnel caused delays in the review and approval of supporting documents and journal entries necessary to prepare our financial statements on a timely basis in accordance with regulatory guidelines. At the beginning of 2007 management commenced hiring and training additional personnel to correct this material weakness. CONFERENCE CALL/WEBCAST The Company's executive management team, led by Larry Feldman, chairman and chief executive officer, and Tom Wirth, executive vice-president and chief financial officer, will host a conference call and audio web cast on Wednesday, May 16, 2007 at 11:00 a.m. EDT to discuss the Company's financial results. The conference call may be accessed by dialing (800) 366-8058. No pass code is required. The live conference will be simultaneously broadcast in a listen-only mode on the Company's website at www.feldmanmall.com. A replay of the call will be available for a limited time by dialing (800) 405-2236 and using the pass code 11090288, or individuals may access the replay via the Company's web site. NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES Feldman Mall Properties, Inc., consistent with real estate industry and investment community preferences, uses FFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding gains (or losses) from cumulative effects of accounting changes, extraordinary items and sales of depreciable properties, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company considers FFO a supplemental measure for equity REITs and a complement to GAAP measures because it facilitates an understanding of the operating performance of the Company's properties. FFO does not give effect to real estate depreciation and amortization since these amounts are computed to allocate the cost of a property over its useful life. Since values for well-maintained real estate assets have historically increased or decreased based upon prevailing market conditions, the Company believes that FFO provides investors with a clearer view of the Company's operating performance. In order to provide a better understanding of the relationship with FFO and GAAP net income, a reconciliation of FFO to GAAP net income has been provided on page 6 of this release. FFO does not represent cash flow from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, should not be considered as an alternative to GAAP net income and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. During the May 16, 2007 conference call, the Company may discuss non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC Regulation G. In addition, the Company has used a non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure (net income) can be found on page 6 of this release. *Financial Tables Attached Feldman Mall Properties, Inc. acquires, renovates and repositions enclosed regional shopping malls.
