"As we approach the end of the year, we are very confident in our ability to exceed all of our 2015 objectives."

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 14 of these locations vacated, representing approximately 496,000 square feet, of which four tenants vacated during the quarter, representing 97,000 square feet. Year to date, the Company has re-leased 241,000 square feet with weighted average downtime of approximately five months, of which 119,000 square feet was comparable with a weighted average re-leasing spread of 26.0%. The Company now expects that the weighted average comparable re-leasing spread for the 15 anchor locations will be in the range of 10% to 15%, with weighted average downtime of approximately 12 months.

INVESTMENT ACTIVITY
Acquisitions
During the quarter, the Company closed on the previously announced acquisition of Coal Creek Marketplace (Coal Creek), located in the Seattle Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), for a gross purchase price of $17.6 million. Coal Creek is a 56,000 square foot grocery-anchored shopping center situated in a well-populated and affluent area within a high barrier-to-entry sub-market. The property is 94.6% occupied and is anchored by Quality Food Centers, a subsidiary of Kroger. The Company also 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.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company acquired an outparcel at one of its neighborhood centers, Royal Oaks Village II located in the Houston MSA, for a gross purchase price of $6.8 million. The building is currently under construction and leased to Trader Joe's, which is expected to open in the first half of 2016.

Additionally, the Company is under contract to acquire Towson Square, a mixed-use shopping center located in the Washington, D.C./Baltimore corridor, for a gross purchase price of $40.5 million. The property is anchored by a state-of-the-art 15 screen Cinemark Theatre and supported by a variety of national and regional restaurant concepts such as BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse, World of Beer, Bobby's Burger Palace, Bonefish Grill and Nando's Peri-Peri. Towson Square is a new development that opened in 2014 and is currently 96.6% occupied. The property is located adjacent to the Company's existing center, Towson Circle. The Company expects to integrate both of these properties into one property as part of the larger planned redevelopment. This transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2015, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions. 

Year to date, the Company has completed or announced $463.9 million of unencumbered acquisitions, with a weighted average ABR per occupied square foot of $21.54. 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, Dallas and Houston 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 $128,000 and weighted average population of 103,000 within a three-mile radius.

Dispositions
During the quarter, the Company completed $250.3 million of dispositions, including the sales of eight non-strategic multi-tenant retail assets for $242.5 million, one of which was classified as held for sale as of June 30, 2015, one office asset for $4.8 million, which was classified as held for sale as of June 30, 2015, and one single-user retail asset for $3.0 million.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company sold one non-strategic development asset, which was held in a consolidated joint venture, for $35.0 million. In addition, the Company entered into agreements to dispose of one non-strategic multi-tenant retail asset and a development asset for total consideration of approximately $58.5 million. These transactions are expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2015, subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Year to date, the Company has completed or announced $499.0 million of dispositions of 16 non-strategic multi-tenant retail assets, five of its six remaining office assets, one single-user retail asset and a development asset. These assets have a weighted average ABR per occupied square foot of $12.76, which is 40.8% lower than that of the year-to-date acquisitions, with weighted average household income of $77,000 and weighted average population of 68,000 within a three-mile radius.

BALANCE SHEET AND CAPITAL MARKETS ACTIVITY
During the quarter, the Company repaid $163.8 million of mortgage debt, excluding amortization, with a weighted average interest rate of 5.32% and defeased $40.7 million of mortgage debt with an interest rate of 7.50%. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company repaid $67.3 million of mortgage debt, excluding amortization, with a weighted average interest rate of 4.97% and a variable rate construction loan with a principal balance of $15.9 million and an interest rate of 2.50% as of the repayment date.

Year to date, the Company repaid $417.2 million of mortgage and construction debt, excluding amortization, with a weighted average interest rate of 5.56% and defeased $65.3 million of mortgage debt with an interest rate of 7.50% in connection with its 2015 disposition activity.

As of September 30, 2015, the Company had approximately $2.3 billion of consolidated indebtedness, which resulted in a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 5.7x, or a net debt and preferred stock to adjusted EBITDA ratio of 6.0x, as compared to 6.3x and 6.6x, respectively, as of June 30, 2015. Consolidated indebtedness had a weighted average contractual interest rate of 4.55% and a weighted average maturity of 4.5 years.

GUIDANCE
The Company is increasing its 2015 Operating FFO guidance to a range of $1.04 to $1.06 per share from $1.02 to $1.04 per share. The Company is also increasing its 2015 same store NOI growth guidance to a range of 2.5% to 3.0% from 1.75% to 2.75% as a result of continued outperformance during the quarter, driven by higher rental income and lower bad debt expense. The increase in the Company's Operating FFO guidance is primarily attributable to the increase in its same store NOI growth guidance, the receipt of unexpected bankruptcy proceeds from a former tenant and the timing of its investment activity.

DIVIDEND
On October 27, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors declared the fourth quarter 2015 Series A preferred stock distribution of $0.4375 per preferred share, for the period beginning October 1, 2015, which will be paid on December 31, 2015 to preferred shareholders of record on December 21, 2015.

On October 27, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors also declared the fourth quarter 2015 quarterly cash dividend of $0.165625 per share on the Company's outstanding Class A common stock, which will be paid on January 8, 2016 to Class A common shareholders of record on December 23, 2015.

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" or "Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders" 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" or "Net Income Attributable to Common Shareholders" 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 NOI, same store NOI and same store NOI, excluding the impact of strategic remerchandising activities. 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 nine months ended September 30, 2015 represents NOI from the Company's same store portfolio consisting of 184 operating properties acquired or placed in service and stabilized prior to January 1, 2014. NOI from Other Investment Properties for the nine months ended September 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 nine months ended September 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 nine months ended September 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 nine months ended September 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 September 30, 2015, the Company's same store portfolio consists of 191 operating properties inclusive of the same store portfolio for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and seven additional operating properties acquired during the first half of 2014. The financial results reported in Other Investment Properties for the three months ended September 30, 2015 are inclusive of the topics described above for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 excluding the seven investment properties acquired during the first half 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 September 30, 2015, as well as the related revenue impact of such efforts due to co-tenancy provisions or otherwise. The Company believes that NOI, 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.
