Rouse Properties Reports First Quarter 2012 Results

Rouse Properties, Inc. (the “Company”) (“Rouse”, NYSE: RSE) a national owner of regional enclosed malls, today announced results for the first quarter 2012. The Company was spun off from General Growth Properties, Inc. (NYSE: GGP) on January 12, 2012. The Company’s results for the first quarter represent consolidated and combined results from January 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012.

“We are pleased with our accomplishments since the spin-off of the Company four months ago, and we have already made progress on our business plan and several key objectives,” commented Andrew Silberfein, President and Chief Executive Officer of Rouse Properties. “While it will take time, we are optimistic that our expertise, scale, and focused capital investment in our malls will increase and optimize the cash flow and earnings as we move forward. We will strive to maximize the value of the Company for shareholders in the coming years by investing capital and resources into repositioning our assets, implementing aggressive leasing initiatives that grow both occupancy levels and sales per square foot throughout our portfolio, executing on timely refinancings to increase our financial flexibility, and selectively acquiring additional enclosed malls with significant growth potential.”

Operational Highlights
  • Comparable tenant sales increased $13 per square foot, or 4.7%, on a trailing 12-month basis
  • Leased percentage was 87.5% at quarter end, an increase of 40 basis points from March 31, 2011
  • Initial rental rate for renewal leases executed decreased 0.5%, while the total for new and renewal leases increased 1.3% on a same suite rental basis
  • Leased 230,000 square feet in the first quarter of 2012, up 50% from leasing activity in the first quarter of 2011
  • Completed an additional 200,000 square feet of leases subsequent to quarter end, which exceeds the amount of square footage leased in the entire second quarter of 2011

Financial Results for the Quarter

Core Funds From Operations (“Core FFO”) was $15.0 million, or $0.41 per diluted share as compared to $18.7 million, or $0.52 per diluted share in the prior year period. The decrease is primarily a result of the inclusion of actual costs associated with general and administrative costs whereas the 2011 results included an allocation from GGP.
