CASH DIVIDEND

ROIC's Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend on its common stock of $0.08 per share, to record holders on March 15, 2011 and payable on March 31, 2011. The $0.08 per share dividend represents a 33.3% increase over ROIC's most recent cash dividend, paid on December 15, 2010.

2011 FFO & DIVIDEND GUIDANCE

ROIC's currently estimates that FFO for 2011 will be within the range of $0.50 to $0.60 per diluted share, and net income will be within the range of $0.15 to $0.20 per diluted share. The following table provides a reconciliation of GAAP net income to FFO.

Net income for period $ 6,250 $  8,500

ROIC intends to distribute cash dividends on its common stock during 2011 in an amount approximately equivalent to 70% to 80% of estimated FFO. ROIC's estimates are based on numerous critical assumptions, including, but not limited, completing approximately $350.0 million of shopping center investments during 2011. ROIC management will discuss its estimates and underlying assumptions on the company's February 23, 2011 conference call (see information below). ROIC's guidance is a forward-looking statement and is subject to risks and other factors described elsewhere in this press release.
