Rouse Properties Reports Second Quarter 2013 Results

Rouse Properties, Inc. (the "Company" or "Rouse") (NYSE: RSE) a national owner of regional enclosed malls, today announced consolidated and combined results for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

"Our strong leasing momentum continued in the second quarter, with 610,000 square feet leased. This resulted in a significant improvement in a number of key portfolio metrics, including a 150 basis point increase in inline percentage leased and a 390 basis point rise in permanent leased percentage,” stated Andrew Silberfein, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our growing inventory of signed leases which have not yet opened for business now totals 769,000 square feet, with over 75% to occupy currently vacant space. We continue to be active on the acquisition front, as evidenced by our recent purchase of Greenville Mall, which offers compelling upside at an attractive entry price. We are pleased with our 17% rise in Core FFO per share in the second quarter, and remain excited about the future impact of leases coming on-line in the quarters ahead."
