"We are very pleased with our operational performance, driven by strong same store NOI growth," stated Steve Grimes, president and chief executive officer. "In addition, at our current pace, we continue to exceed our expectations on all of the elements of our strategic plan, including disposing of non-strategic and non-core assets and redeploying proceeds into Class A assets within our target markets, as well as making significant enhancements to our leadership team and operating platform to position RPAI for long term, sustainable growth."

REMERCHANDISING UPDATE The Company continues its efforts to remerchandise 15 anchor locations within its 2015 same store portfolio, representing approximately 537,000 square feet of gross leasable area. Year to date, tenants in 10 of these locations vacated, representing approximately 399,000 square feet, of which one tenant vacated during the quarter, representing 155,000 square feet. Year to date, the Company has re-leased five of these locations with a weighted average downtime of approximately four months, representing approximately 146,000 square feet, of which 76,000 square feet was comparable with a weighted average re-leasing spread of 38.4%. The Company now expects that the weighted average comparable re-leasing spread for the 15 anchor locations will be in the low double digit range, with weighted average downtime of approximately 12 months.

INVESTMENT ACTIVITY Acquisitions During the quarter, the Company completed $66.8 million of previously announced acquisitions, including Tysons Corner, a community center located in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), and Woodinville Plaza, a grocery-anchored shopping center located in the Seattle MSA.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company closed on the previously announced acquisition of an outparcel at one of its lifestyle centers, Southlake Town Square located in the Dallas MSA, for a gross purchase price of $8.4 million. The recently constructed building is occupied by Trader Joe's.

Additionally, the Company remains under contract to acquire a grocery-anchored shopping center located in the Seattle MSA for a gross purchase price of $17.8 million. The Company also entered into a purchase agreement to acquire a mixed-use shopping center located in the Washington, D.C./Baltimore corridor for a gross purchase price of $40.5 million. These transactions are expected to close during the third and fourth quarters of 2015, respectively, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. 

Year to date, the Company has completed or announced $457.2 million of unencumbered acquisitions, with a weighted average ABR per occupied square foot of $21.47. These acquisitions are comprised of high quality, multi-tenant retail assets located in the Washington, D.C./Baltimore corridor, in addition to the Seattle, Austin and Dallas MSAs, resulting in an expansion of the Company's multi-tenant retail footprint in these target markets by 1.2 million square feet. These properties possess strong demographic profiles, with weighted average household income of $129,000 and weighted average population of 101,000 within a three-mile radius.

In addition, the Company entered into agreements to dispose of eight non-strategic retail assets for total consideration of $217.3 million. These transactions are expected to close during the third quarter of 2015, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Year to date, the Company has completed or announced $450.5 million of dispositions, comprised of 16 non-strategic retail assets and five of its six remaining office assets.

These forward-looking statements reflect the Company's current views about its plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects, which are based on the information currently available to the Company and on assumptions it has made. Although the Company believes that its plans, intentions, expectations, strategies and prospects as reflected in or suggested by those forward-looking statements are reasonable, the Company can give no assurance that such plans, intentions, expectations or strategies will be attained or achieved. Furthermore, these forward-looking statements should be considered as subject to the many risks and uncertainties that exist in the Company's operations and business environment. Such risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These uncertainties include, but are not limited to, economic, business and financial conditions, and changes in the Company's industry and changes in the real estate markets in particular, market price of the Company's common stock, general volatility of the capital and credit markets, competitive and cost factors, the ability of the Company to enter into new leases or renew leases on favorable terms, frequency and magnitude of defaults on, early terminations of or non-renewal of leases by tenants, bankruptcy or insolvency of a major tenant or a significant number of smaller tenants, the effects of declining real estate valuations and impairment charges on the Company's operating results, interest rates and operating costs, rental rates and/or vacancy rates, risks generally associated with real estate acquisitions, dispositions and redevelopment activity, satisfaction of closing conditions to the pending transactions described herein, the Company's failure to successfully execute its non-core disposition program and capital recycling efforts, the Company's ability to create long-term shareholder value, the Company's ability to effectively manage growth, the availability, terms and deployment of capital, regulatory changes and other risk factors, including those detailed in the sections of the Company's most recent Forms 10-K and 10-Q filed with the SEC titled "Risk Factors". The Company assumes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES As defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT), an industry trade group, Funds From Operations (FFO) means net income (loss) computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable real estate, plus depreciation and amortization and impairment charges on depreciable real estate, including amounts from continuing and discontinued operations as well as adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures in which the reporting entity holds an interest. The Company has adopted the NAREIT definition in its computation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that, subject to the following limitations, FFO attributable to common shareholders provides a basis for comparing its performance and operations to those of other real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Company believes that FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a non-GAAP performance measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to "Net Income" as an indicator of the Company's performance or "Cash Flows from Operating Activities" as determined by GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends.

The Company also reports Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is defined as FFO attributable to common shareholders excluding the impact of discrete non-operating transactions and other events which the Company does not consider representative of the comparable operating results of the Company's core business platform, its real estate operating portfolio. Specific examples of discrete non-operating transactions and other events include, but are not limited to, the financial statement impact of gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt or other liabilities, actual or anticipated settlement of litigation involving the Company, executive separation charges and impairment charges to write down the carrying value of assets other than depreciable real estate, which are otherwise excluded from the Company's calculation of FFO attributable to common shareholders. The Company believes that Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders, which is a non-GAAP performance measure, provides an additional and useful means to assess the operating performance of REITs. Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders does not represent an alternative to "Net Income" as an indicator of the Company's performance or "Cash Flows from Operating Activities" as determined by GAAP as a measure of the Company's capacity to fund cash needs, including the payment of dividends. Further, comparison of the Company's presentation of Operating FFO attributable to common shareholders to similarly titled measures for other REITs may not necessarily be meaningful due to possible differences in definition and application by such REITs.

The Company also reports same store NOI. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (rental income, tenant recovery income and other property income, excluding straight-line rental income, amortization of lease inducements, amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and lease termination fee income) less property operating expenses (real estate tax expense and property operating expense, excluding straight-line ground rent expense, amortization of acquired ground lease intangibles and straight-line bad debt expense). Same Store NOI for the six months ended June 30, 2015 represents NOI from the Company's same store portfolio consisting of 192 operating properties acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January 1, 2014. NOI from Other Investment Properties for the six months ended June 30, 2015 represents NOI primarily from properties acquired during 2014 and 2015, the Company's development properties, two properties where the Company has begun activities in anticipation of future redevelopment, one property that was impaired below its debt balance during 2014, the investment properties that were sold or held for sale in 2014 and 2015 that did not qualify for discontinued operations treatment and the historical ground rent expense related to an existing same store investment property that was subject to a ground lease with a third party prior to the Company's acquisition of the fee interest during the first quarter of 2014. In addition, the financial results reported in Other Investment Properties for the six months ended June 30, 2015 include the net income from the Company's wholly-owned captive insurance company, which was formed on December 1, 2014, and the financial results reported in Other Investment Properties for the six months ended June 30, 2014 include the historical intercompany expense elimination related to the Company's former insurance captive unconsolidated joint venture investment, in which the Company terminated its participation effective December 1, 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the historical captive insurance expense related to the Company's portfolio was recorded in equity in loss of unconsolidated joint ventures, net. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company's same store portfolio consists of 193 operating properties inclusive of the same store portfolio for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and one additional operating property acquired during the first quarter of 2014. The financial results reported in Other Investment Properties for the three months ended June 30, 2015 are inclusive of the topics described above for the six months ended June 30, 2015 excluding the one investment property acquired during the first quarter of 2014. NOI consists of the sum of Same Store NOI and NOI from Other Investment Properties. Same Store NOI, excluding the impact of strategic remerchandising activities, represents Same Store NOI, less the operating revenues of the previously announced 15 anchor locations subject to strategic remerchandising that have vacated as of June 30, 2015, as well as the related revenue impact of such efforts due to co-tenancy provisions or otherwise. The Company believes that Same Store NOI, NOI from Other Investment Properties and Same Store NOI, excluding the impact of strategic remerchandising activities, are useful measures of the Company's operating performance. Further, the Company believes Same Store NOI, excluding the impact of strategic remerchandising activities, is also useful as it provides a basis for evaluating the impact of the Company's previously announced remerchandising activity on its operating results. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating these metrics, and accordingly, the Company's NOI metrics may not be comparable to other REITs. The Company believes that these metrics provide an operating perspective not immediately apparent from operating income or net income attributable to common shareholders as defined within GAAP. The Company uses these metrics to evaluate its performance on a property-by-property basis because these measures allow management to evaluate the impact that factors such as lease structure, lease rates and tenant base, which vary by property, have on the Company's operating results. However, these measures should only be used as alternative measures of the Company's financial performance.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net income attributable to common shareholders before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to eliminate the impact of certain items that the Company does not consider indicative of its ongoing performance. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful because it allows investors and management to evaluate and compare its performance from period to period in a meaningful and consistent manner in addition to standard financial measurements under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income attributable to common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance or any measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, accordingly, comparability may be limited.

Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA represents (i) the Company's total debt less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. The Company believes that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding total debt net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to the Company's performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA.

Net Debt and Preferred Stock to Adjusted EBITDA represents (i) the Company's total debt, plus preferred stock, less cash and cash equivalents divided by (ii) Adjusted EBITDA for the prior three months, annualized. The Company believes that this ratio is useful because it provides investors with information regarding total debt and preferred stock, net of cash and cash equivalents, which could be used to repay debt, compared to the Company's performance as measured using Adjusted EBITDA.
