Net income (loss) allocable to common shareholders per diluted share (EPS) was $0.01 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, up from $(1.77) for the quarter ended September 30, 2009.  EPS for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $0.26, up from $(1.39) for the first nine months of 2009.  The 2009 results were negatively impacted by impairment charges relating to The Pier Shops at Caesars (Atlantic City, N.J.) and Regency Square (Richmond, Va.).

Adjusted Funds from Operations (Adjusted FFO) per diluted share was $0.59 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 versus $0.74 for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, which excludes the 2009 impairment charges.  Adjusted FFO in the third quarter of 2010 reflects a $0.12 per share decrease in lease cancellation revenue compared to the comparable quarter of 2009.  Lease cancellation revenue is expected to be very high in the fourth quarter of 2010, with the full year slightly above 2009. Adjusted FFO per diluted share for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $1.80 compared to $2.13 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

Funds from Operations (FFO) per diluted share was $0.59 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, up from $(1.26) for the quarter ended September 30, 2009.   FFO per diluted share was $1.80 for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, up from $0.11 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

"We're pleased that our core business is improving," said Robert S. Taubman, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Taubman Centers.  "Rents are up, and excluding lease cancellation revenue, net operating income increased 1.1 percent."

Operating Statistics Continuing to Improve

Tenant sales per square foot continued to be strong in the quarter, up 13.2 percent, bringing the year to date increase to 12.1 percent and the company's 12-month trailing sales per square foot to $539.  "We've now reported three quarters of double digit tenant sales increases, and there is strong momentum as we approach the holidays," said Mr. Taubman.  "We attribute this outstanding performance to the merchandise mix at our centers and the overall health of our portfolio."

Ending occupancy for Taubman's portfolio was 88.6 percent on September 30, 2010, up 0.7 percent from June 30, 2010.  Leased space was 91.7 percent on September 30, 2010, up 0.9 percent from June 30, 2010.

Average rent per square foot was $43.12, up from $43.08 in the third quarter of 2009.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2010, average rent per square foot was $43.17 versus $43.89 in the nine months ended September 30, 2009.  

"All of these statistics are very solid," said Mr. Taubman.  "Retailers are becoming more optimistic with their expansion plans and capital allocation decisions."

Financings Completed for MacArthur Center and Arizona Mills

The refinancing of MacArthur Center (Norfolk, Va.), a 95 percent owned consolidated property, was completed in early September.  The new 10-year $131 million non-recourse loan has been swapped to bear interest at an all-in rate of 5.12 percent for the entire term.  The loan is interest only for the first two years and then amortizes principal based on 30 years.  Proceeds from the refinancing were used to pay off the existing $127 million 6.96 percent (effective rate) loan.

As previously announced, the refinancing of Arizona Mills (Tempe, Ariz.), a 50 percent owned joint venture property, was completed in early July.  The new 10-year $175 million non-recourse loan bears interest at an all-in rate of 5.84 percent, with principal amortizing based on 30 years.  Proceeds from the refinancing were used to pay off the existing $131 million 7.90 percent (effective rate) loan, with excess amounts distributed to the partners.

"This completes our financing plan for 2010," said Lisa A. Payne, vice chairman and chief financial officer of Taubman Centers.  "Together with the late June financing of Partridge Creek (Clinton Township, Mich.), our share of proceeds on the three loans totaled nearly $300 million; we locked in favorable 10-year rates averaging less than 5.7 percent and generated about $35 million of cash in excess of the previous loan balances.  A year ago, this result would have been hard to imagine."

Regency Square Update

Taubman Centers' Board of Directors has concluded that it is in the best interest of the company to discontinue its financial support of Regency Square and as a result, the company has begun discussions with the lender about the center's future ownership.  The center's $73 million non-recourse mortgage debt is due November 1, 2011.  At the current time, subject to decisions by the lender, Taubman will continue to manage the shopping center.

Regency Square is an 820,000 square foot shopping center built in 1975 and anchored by Macy's (two locations), JCPenney and Sears.  The property was acquired by Taubman in 1997.  Taubman plans to continue to own and manage Stony Point Fashion Park, its other property in Richmond.

In the third quarter of 2009, Taubman Centers recognized an impairment charge of $59 million on Regency Square. The book value of the center at September 30, 2010 is $31 million. The company expects to accrue a default rate of interest on the loan of 10.75 percent beginning late in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Although timing is uncertain, a non-cash accounting gain is expected to be recognized when the title to Regency Square is transferred and the loan obligations have been satisfied.

2010 Guidance

The company is raising its 2010 FFO guidance range to $2.77 to $2.82 per diluted share.  Factors contributing to this increase include improved rents and net recoveries and higher lease cancellation revenue, now projected to be about $22 million for the year.   The company is also revising its guidance for 2010 EPS to $0.74 to $0.81. These ranges assume continued ownership of both Regency Square and The Pier Shops at Caesars through 2010, as the timing of ownership transfer for each is not in the company's control.  The Pier Shops' results are projected to have a negative non-cash impact on FFO per share and EPS (which includes depreciation and amortization) in 2010 of $(0.14) and $(0.23), respectively.  The default interest at Regency Square is expected to have a nominal impact in 2010.

The three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2009 include impairment charges related to the write down of the book values of The Pier Shops and Regency Square to their fair values. The nine month period ended September 30, 2009 also includes a restructuring charge, which primarily represents the costs of termination of personnel. No similar charges were incurred in the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2010.

(2)

Beneficial Interest in EBITDA represents the Operating Partnership’s share of the earnings before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization of its consolidated and unconsolidated businesses. The Company believes Beneficial Interest in EBITDA provides a useful indicator of operating performance, as it is customary in the real estate and shopping center business to evaluate the performance of properties on a basis unaffected by capital structure.

The Company uses Net Operating Income (NOI), as an alternative measure to evaluate the operating performance of centers, both on individual and stabilized portfolio bases. The Company defines NOI as property-level operating revenues (includes rental income excluding straightline adjustments of minimum rent) less maintenance, taxes, utilities, ground rent, and other property operating expenses. Since NOI excludes general and administrative expenses, pre-development charges, interest income and expense, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, restructuring charges, and gains from land and property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared period over period, reflects the revenues and expenses most directly associated with owning and operating rental properties, as well as the impact on their operations from trends in tenant sales, occupancy and rental rates, and operating costs. The Company also uses NOI excluding lease cancellation income as an alternative measure because this income may vary significantly from period to period, which can affect comparability and trend analysis. The Company generally provides separate projections for expected NOI growth and lease cancellation income.

The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT) defines Funds from Operations (FFO) as net income (computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP)), excluding gains  from extraordinary items and sales of properties, plus real estate related depreciation and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company believes that FFO is a useful supplemental measure of operating performance for REITs. Historical cost accounting for real estate assets implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values instead have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, the Company and most industry investors and analysts have considered presentations of operating results that exclude historical cost depreciation to be useful in evaluating the operating performance of REITs.

The Company primarily uses FFO in measuring performance and in formulating corporate goals and compensation. The Company may also present adjusted versions of NOI, Beneficial Interest in EBITDA, and FFO when used by management to evaluate operating performance when certain significant items have impacted results that affect comparability with prior or future periods due to the nature or amounts of these items. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009, FFO was adjusted for impairment charges. Also FFO for the nine month period ended September 30, 2009 was adjusted for a restructuring charge.

These non-GAAP measures as presented by the Company are not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures used by other REITs due to the fact that not all REITs use common definitions. None of these non-GAAP measures should be considered alternatives to net income as an indicator of the Company's operating performance, and they do not represent cash flows from operating, investing, or financing activities as defined by GAAP.

Guidance on Funds from Operations and EPS includes The Pier Shops and Regency Square through the end of 2010. The Pier Shops‘ results are projected to have a negative non-cash impact on FFO per share and EPS (which includes depreciation and amortization) in 2010 of $(0.14) and $(0.23), respectively. The default interest at Regency Square is expected to have a nominal impact in 2010.

A non-cash accounting gain is expected to be recognized when the loan obligations are extinguished upon transfer of title of the centers. However, timing of completion is uncertain and the 2010 guidance does not include any estimate of such gains.
