With our retail portfolio over 91% leased and three consecutive quarters of positive leasing spreads we are well on our way to our stabilized occupancy goal. Additionally, our successful execution of asset sales and related debt repayments have provided us with an improved risk profile and positioned us to drive long-term shareholder value. As a result, we are confident in our ability to achieve all of our stated 2012 objectives.”
