Associated Estates Realty's CEO Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Before we begin our prepared comments, we would like to note that certain statements made during this call, including answers we give in response to your questions, will be forward-looking statements that are based on the current expectations and beliefs of management. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and trends that could cause actual results to differ materially from projections. Further information about these risks and trends can be found in our filings with the SEC, and we encourage everyone to review them.

As a reminder, Associated Estates’ second quarter earnings release and supplemental are available in the Investor Relations section of our website, and they include reconciliations to non-GAAP financial measures, which may be discussed on this call.

At this time, I’ll turn the call over to Jeff Friedman.

Jeff Friedman

Thank you, Jeremy. We appreciate everyone taking the time to participate on our call. If in the long run the stock market is a weighing machine, why then do we continue to trade at such a discount? Is it because 40% of our NOI comes from the Midwest? Is it because we are a small cap company?

It can’t be, because we haven’t executed on our strategic objectives, we have, year in and year out. It can’t be because we haven’t been clear about how we plan to execute, we have, as demonstrated by our 2010 acquisitions, our 2010 equity raises, the limited use of our ATM and by allowing our internal growth from our 2010 and 2011 acquisitions to prove that we once again delivered on what we said we would do.

A long-term property level performance has led most of the publicly traded apartment REITs. Since 1998 when we decided to expand outside of the Midwest, we have repeatedly demonstrated our ability to recognize when to buy and when to sell. Our portfolio today is among the youngest of all of the apartment REITs. Our properties outside of the Midwest are in many of the strongest and fastest growing submarkets in the country. Our Midwest properties continue to produce strong results. Still, our stock trades at a discount.
