FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

The Company's third quarter operating Funds From Operations ("FFO") was $67.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, before $59.3 million of net adjustments.  The net adjustments do not include approximately $6.6 million of gains recognized on asset sales already excluded from FFO.

FFO applicable to common shareholders for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011, including the above net adjustments, was $8.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, which compares to FFO of $37.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The decrease in FFO for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011, is primarily the result of an increase in the aggregate impairment charges recorded in 2011 offset by the effect of the non-cash valuation adjustments associated with the warrants issued to the Otto family that were exercised in full for cash in the first quarter of 2011.

FFO applicable to common shareholders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011, including the above net adjustments, was $121.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, which compares to FFO of $32.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The increase in FFO for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011, is primarily the result of a reduction in the aggregate impairment charges recorded in 2011, the gain on change in control of interests related to the Company's acquisition of two assets from unconsolidated joint ventures and the effect of the non-cash valuation adjustments associated with the warrants partially offset by an executive separation charge and the write-off of the original issuance costs from the redemption of the Company's Class G cumulative redeemable preferred shares.  

Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011, was $50.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, which compares to a net loss of $24.9 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  Net loss applicable to common shareholders for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011, was $52.1 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, which compares to a net loss of $156.8 million, or $0.65 per diluted share, for the prior-year comparable period.  The changes in net loss applicable to common shareholders for the three- and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2011, is primarily due to the same factors impacting FFO as explained above.

LEASING & PORTFOLIO OPERATIONS

The following results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011, highlight continued strong leasing activity throughout the portfolio:

  • Executed 220 new leases aggregating approximately 1.0 million square feet and 296 renewals aggregating approximately 1.5 million square feet.

  • Total portfolio average annualized base rent per occupied square foot as of September 30, 2011 was $13.76, as compared to $13.21 at September 30, 2010.  

  • The portfolio leased rate was 93.4% at September 30, 2011, as compared to 93.0% at June 30, 2011 and 92.2% at September 30, 2010.  

  • On a cash basis, rental rates for new leases increased by 15.8% over prior rents and renewals increased by 5.7%, resulting in an overall blended spread of 7.3%.    

  • Same store net operating income ("NOI") increased 3.7% for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011 over the prior-year comparable period.

ACQUISITIONS & INVESTMENTS

In the third quarter of 2011, the Company acquired three prime assets aggregating 463,677 square feet for a total purchase price of approximately $110.0 million.  The Company assumed an aggregate of $67.0 million of mortgage debt in connection with these acquisitions.  Two of the prime assets are in Charlotte, North Carolina (Cotswold Village and The Terraces at SouthPark) and one prime asset is in Colorado Springs, Colorado (Chapel Hills East). The assets range between 96% and 100% leased and are occupied by many high-quality retailers typically found in DDR shopping centers including Whole Foods, Marshalls, PetSmart, Best Buy, Harris Teeter , ULTA, Old Navy, and DSW.

As previously announced in the third quarter, the Company has an agreement to acquire Polaris Towne Center in Columbus, Ohio, for $80 million, including the assumption of $45 million in mortgage debt currently encumbering the property.  Polaris is a 720,779 square-foot prime asset anchored by Target, Lowe's, Kroger, Best Buy, T.J.Maxx , Old Navy and ULTA.  In connection with this transaction, the Company anticipates selling Town Center Plaza in Leawood, Kansas for $139 million.  The Company currently anticipates recognizing a gain, estimated to be approximately $60 million, in connection with the sale of Town Center Plaza, which amount is subject to change based on actual closing and other costs associated with the sale.  It is anticipated that this transaction will close in the fourth quarter of 2011, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions.

In September 2011, the Company invested $10 million in a loan collateralized by a prime shopping center in Miami, Florida.  

DISPOSITIONS

The Company sold nine consolidated non-prime assets, aggregating approximately 0.9 million square feet, in the third quarter of 2011, generating gross proceeds of approximately $42.0 million.  In addition, the Company sold $17.1 million of consolidated non-income producing assets.  The Company recorded an aggregate net loss of approximately $1.4 million related to asset sales in the third quarter of 2011.  

2011 GUIDANCE

The Company is tightening its guidance for operating FFO for 2011 to a range between $0.95 - $1.00 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 from disposition of depreciable real estate property, except for gains generated from merchant build asset sales, which are presented net of taxes, and those gains that represent the recapture of a previously recognized impairment charge, (iii) 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. 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.

(1) The 2011 impairment charges primarily related to land held for development in Yaroslavl, Russia and Brampton, Canada.  The asset impairments were triggered by the execution of agreements during the third quarter for the sale of the Company's interest in these projects.  The 2010 impairment charges related to land held for development in Togliatti and Yaroslavl, Russia.  The Company's proportionate share of the impairment charges was $36.4 million and $41.9 million after adjusting for the allocation of loss to the non-controlling interest in the consolidated joint venture that owns the Yaroslavl project for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
