FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS The Company's second quarter Operating Funds From Operations applicable to common shareholders ("Operating FFO") increased to $71.6 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, before $6.5 million of net adjustments, which compares to $64.4 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, before $11.9 million of net adjustments for the prior-year comparable period.  The increase in Operating FFO for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, is primarily due to organic growth and the acquisition of nine shopping center assets in 2011 and 2012 partially offset by asset dispositions.

Funds From Operations applicable to common shareholders ("FFO") for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, increased to $78.1 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, which compares to FFO of $52.6 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The increase in FFO for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, is primarily due to the gain on change in control of interests related to the Company's acquisition of two assets from an unconsolidated joint venture partially offset by the loss on debt extinguishment related to the Company's repurchase of a portion of its 9.625% unsecured notes in 2012.

FFO for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 was $137.8 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, which compares to FFO of $145.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The decrease in FFO for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same period in 2011, is primarily due to the same factors impacting FFO as explained above in addition to the effect of the valuation adjustment associated with the warrants that were exercised in full for cash in the first quarter of 2011.

Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, was $44.5 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, which compares to net loss of $26.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, was $66.5 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, which compares to net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The increase in net loss applicable to common shareholders for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, as compared to the same periods in 2011, is primarily due to the same factors impacting FFO as explained above as well as an increase in impairment charges in the second quarter of 2012.

LEASING & PORTFOLIO OPERATIONS The following results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012, highlight continued strong leasing activity throughout the portfolio:

  • Executed 200 new leases aggregating 0.9 million square feet and 226 renewals aggregating approximately 1.8 million square feet
  • The portfolio leased rate was 94.1% at June 30, 2012, as compared to 93.7% at March 31, 2012 and 93.0% at June 30, 2011 on a comparable basis
  • The portfolio leased rate at June 30, 2012, including the 46 assets acquired on June 20, 2012 by the Blackstone joint venture, was 93.7%
  • On a cash basis, rental rates for new leases increased by 10.7% at 100% ownership and 22.2% on a pro rata basis, and renewals by 6.1% at 100% ownership and 5.8% on a pro rata basis.  Overall, blended spreads were up 6.8% at 100% ownership and 8.3% on a pro rata basis. 
  • Same store net operating income ("NOI") increased by 3.9% at 100% ownership for the three-month period ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the prior-year comparable period and 3.1% on a pro rata basis
  • Total portfolio average annualized base rent per occupied square foot as of June 30, 2012 was $13.80, as compared to $13.46 at June 30, 2011 

ACQUISITIONS & FINANCINGS In June 2012, affiliates of the Company and The Blackstone Group L.P. ("Blackstone") closed a joint venture which acquired a portfolio of 46 shopping centers previously owned by EPN Group.  An affiliate of Blackstone owns 95% of the common equity of the joint venture, and the remaining 5% interest is owned by an affiliate of the Company.  The transaction is valued at approximately $1.4 billion.  The joint venture assumed approximately $635 million of senior non-recourse debt and entered into an additional $320 million of non-recourse debt with a five-year term. In addition, the Company funded the joint venture with $150 million in preferred equity with a fixed distribution rate of 10%, as well as its $17 million common equity funding.  The Company will continue to provide leasing and property management services and will have the right of first offer to acquire 10 of the assets under specified conditions.  The Company funded its investment with proceeds from the equity forward sale agreements entered into in January 2012 and settled in June 2012 for net proceeds of $231.2 million.   

In April 2012, the Company acquired its unconsolidated joint venture partner's 50% ownership interest in two prime power centers located in Portland, Oregon and Phoenix, Arizona for an aggregate purchase price of $70 million.  Tanasbourne Town Center in Portland, Oregon, is a large-format power center totaling 566,000 square feet.  The shopping center is anchored by national tenants including Target, Nordstrom Rack, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ross Dress For Less, Michaels, Old Navy and Petco.  Arrowhead Crossing in Phoenix, Arizona, is a large-format power center totaling 412,000 square feet. The shopping center is anchored by national tenants including Nordstrom Rack, DSW, T.J.Maxx, HomeGoods, Staples and Hobby Lobby.  The Company funded its $70 million investment with proceeds from the issuance of 4.8 million common shares at an average price of $14.64 per share through its at-the-market common equity program.  At closing, approximately $104 million of mortgage debt was repaid and the two assets are part of the Company's large unencumbered pool.  The Company recorded an aggregate gain of approximately $39.3 million in connection with the step-up of its investment basis to fair value due to the change in control that occurred.

In June 2012, the Company issued $300 million aggregate principal amount of 4.625% senior unsecured notes due July 2022.  Proceeds from the issuance were used to repay the 5.375% senior unsecured notes with an aggregate principal amount of $223.5 million at par scheduled to mature in October 2012 and repay amounts outstanding on the revolving credit facilities.

During the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2012, the Company repurchased $34.5 million and $60.0 million, respectively, aggregate principal amount of its outstanding 9.625% senior unsecured notes with a maturity date of March 2016 at a premium to par, resulting in a loss on debt retirement of $7.9 million and $13.5 million, respectively. 

On August 1, 2012, the Company expects to issue $200.0 million of its newly designated 6.50% Class J cumulative redeemable preferred shares at a price of $25.00 per depositary share.  In addition, in July 2012, the Company announced the redemption of its 7.50% Class I cumulative redeemable preferred shares at a redemption of price of $25.00 per depositary share plus accrued and unpaid dividends of $0.1875 per depositary share.  The proceeds from the issuance of the Class J shares are expected to be primarily used to redeem the Class I shares, which is expected to close on August 20, 2012.

DISPOSITIONS The Company sold 15 consolidated assets, aggregating approximately 2.1 million square feet, in the second quarter of 2012, generating gross proceeds of approximately $60.4 million.  In addition, the Company sold $13.3 million of consolidated non-income producing assets.  The Company recorded an aggregate net gain of approximately $8.4 million related to asset sales in the second quarter of 2012. 

In the second quarter of 2012, the Company's unconsolidated joint ventures sold one asset generating gross proceeds of approximately $6.8 million, of which the Company's proportionate share was $1.4 million.  The aggregate gain on sale in the second quarter of 2012 was approximately $0.2 million, of which the Company's proportionate share was immaterial.

2012 GUIDANCE There has been no change in Operating FFO per share guidance since the last update provided on May 1, 2012.  The Company continues to estimate Operating FFO for 2012 between $1.00 and $1.04 per diluted share. 

NON-GAAP DISCLOSURES FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measurement used as a standard in the real estate industry and a widely accepted measure of real estate investment trust ("REIT") performance. Management believes that FFO and Operating FFO provide additional indicators of the financial performance of a REIT. The Company also believes that FFO and Operating FFO more appropriately measure the core operations of the Company and provide benchmarks to its peer group. Neither FFO nor Operating FFO represents cash generated from operating activities in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), is necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should be considered as an alternative to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the Company's operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

FFO is defined and calculated by the Company as net income, adjusted to exclude: (i) preferred share dividends, (ii) gains and losses from disposition of depreciable real estate property, which are presented net of taxes, (iii) impairment charges on depreciable real estate property and related investments, (iv) extraordinary items and (iv) certain non-cash items. These non-cash items principally include real property depreciation and amortization of intangibles, equity income from joint ventures and equity income from non-controlling interests and adding the Company's proportionate share of FFO from its unconsolidated joint ventures and non-controlling interests, determined on a consistent basis. The Company calculates Operating FFO by excluding the non-operating charges and gains described above. The Company computes FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition as affirmed by NAREIT on October 31, 2011.  Other real estate companies may calculate FFO and Operating FFO in a different manner. FFO excluding the net non-operating items detailed above is useful to investors as the Company removes these charges and gains to analyze the results of its operations and assess performance of the core operating real estate portfolio. A reconciliation of net income (loss) to FFO and Operating FFO is presented in the financial highlights section of the Company's quarterly supplement.
