The dividend is payable on April 17, 2013 to holders of record as of March 28, 2013. In declaring the dividend, the Board of Trust Managers considered a number of factors, including the Company’s past performance and future prospects, as described in this release.

Camden provided initial earnings guidance for 2013 based on its current and expected views of the apartment market and general economic conditions. Full-year 2013 FFO is expected to be $3.85 to $4.05 per diluted share, and full-year 2013 EPS is expected to be $1.38 to $1.58 per diluted share. First quarter 2013 earnings guidance is $0.92 to $0.96 per diluted share for FFO and $0.28 to $0.32 per diluted share for EPS. Guidance for EPS excludes gains on real estate transactions. Camden intends to update its earnings guidance to the market on a quarterly basis.
