Post Properties Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Earnings

Said Dave Stockert, Post’s CEO, “Strong results in the fourth quarter capped a very productive year. Per share core funds from operations grew by more than 20% in 2012, driven by excellent portfolio performance and opportunistic investing and financing activity. In addition, we achieved a robust pace of condominium closings. The Company enters the new year well positioned to continue growing its core funds from operations. We expect to see ongoing favorable apartment market conditions, and look forward to the bottom-line contribution of our communities in lease-up.”
