Regency Centers Updates 2012 Earnings Guidance

Regency Centers Corporation (NYSE:REG);(“Regency” or “The Company”) announced today updated earnings guidance associated with the redemption and new issuance of preferred securities.

Effective today, Regency priced $250 million of newly issued 6.625% Series 6 Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares (“Series 6 Stock”). The Company will use the proceeds for (i) the purchase of all outstanding of 7.45% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Limited Partnership Units of its operating partnership (“Series D Units”); (ii) the redemption of 7.45% Series 3 Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares (“Series 3 Stock”); and (iii) the redemption of 7.25% Series 4 Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares (“Series 4 Stock”; collectively, the “Preferred Redemptions”).

Full-year 2012 Recurring Funds From Operations (“FFO”) will increase by $1.6 million, or $0.02 per share, as a result of the preferred dividend savings. Beginning in 2013, the Preferred Redemptions and the issuance of the Series 6 Stock will result in annual preferred dividend savings of approximately $1.8 million.

Full-year 2012 FFO will be lower by approximately $6.1 million, or $0.07 per share, due to the one-time impacts of (i) the expensing of original issuance costs of approximately $7.8 million on the Preferred Redemptions; (ii) the gain recognized by a negotiated discount to par of $1.9 million on the purchase of the Series D Units; and (iii) the one-time additional dividend payments of $1.8 million in the first quarter related to the required notice period of the Series 3 Stock and Series 4 Stock redemptions. These one-time impacts will be offset by the preferred dividend savings of $1.6 million for the remainder of the year.

Please see below updated summaries of guidance and Recurring FFO reconciliations.
