Stocks in this article: WRI

“With all the volatility and uncertainty in the marketplace caused by the talk of tapering the Fed’s bond purchases, the government shutdown and the debt ceiling negotiations, we felt this notes offering was effectively an insurance policy for the Company’s January 2014 maturities. We were extremely pleased with the execution, especially in light of the unusual market conditions,” said Steve Richter, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

Recurring FFO Guidance

With respect to 2013 guidance, the Company once again raised its guidance for Recurring FFO from $1.89 to $1.93 per share to $1.93 to $1.95 per share. Recurring FFO guidance for 2014 is a range from $1.95 to $2.01 per share. The Company’s guidance for 2013 and 2014, and assumptions for 2013 are provided on page 9 of its supplemental package.

Dividends

The Board of Trust Managers declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.305 per common share payable on December 13, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 5, 2013.

The Board of Trust Managers also declared dividends on the Company’s 6.50% Series F Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares (NYSE:WRIPrF) of $0.40625 per share for the quarter payable on December 13, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 5, 2013.
