Funds from Operations (“FFO”) per diluted share $ 0.53   $ 0.50 $ 1.02   $ 0.97
 

(1) FFO for the six months ended June 30, 2011 excludes the gain on extinguishment of debt of $0.17 per share recorded in the first quarter 2011.
 

“This was a strong quarter for CBL in all respects, and we exceeded expectations in all of our primary metrics,” said Stephen Lebovitz, CBL’s president and chief executive officer. “Occupancy improved year-over-year and, sequentially, rental spreads were up nicely on both new and renewal leasing and sales in the mall portfolio continued their positive trend. We enter the second half of the year with a more positive outlook. The NOI and FFO growth we generated in the quarter has enabled us to raise our full year 2012 guidance, while the significant refinancing activity has addressed almost all of our 2012 maturities and provided significant excess loan proceeds.

“We successfully sourced attractive growth opportunities in the quarter that complement our outlet center development program. The acquisition of Dakota Square Mall and the long-term contract to manage six malls for Starwood will enable us to leverage our leasing and management capabilities. With nearly full availability on our credit facilities and potential non-core disposition activity planned, we are well-positioned to pursue additional growth opportunities and fund capital needs for the foreseeable future.”

FFO allocable to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $79,950,000, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared with $73,763,000, or $0.50 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2011. FFO of the operating partnership for the second quarter of 2012 was $100,782,000, compared with $94,653,000, for the second quarter 2011.

Net income attributable to common shareholders for the second quarter of 2012 was $18,797,000, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9,782,000, or $0.07 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011.

HIGHLIGHTS

OUTLOOK AND GUIDANCE

Based on second quarter results and today's outlook, the Company is increasing 2012 FFO to a range of $2.00 - $2.10 per share from the previously issued range of $1.95 - $2.03 per share. The Company is also increasing its assumption for same-center NOI growth to a range of 1.0% - 2.0%, excluding applicable lease termination fees, compared with the previously issued range of 0.0% - 1.0%. The full year guidance assumes $3.0 million to $5.0 million of outparcel sales and a 50 - 100 basis point increase in year-end occupancy as compared with the prior year.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Funds From Operations

FFO is a widely used measure of the operating performance of real estate companies that supplements net income (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP) excluding gains or losses on sales of operating properties, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures and noncontrolling interests. Adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures and noncontrolling interests are calculated on the same basis. In October 2011, NAREIT clarified that FFO should exclude the impact of losses on impairment of depreciable properties. The Company has calculated FFO for all periods presented in accordance with this clarification. The Company defines FFO allocable to its common shareholders as defined above by NAREIT less dividends on preferred stock. The Company’s method of calculating FFO allocable to its common shareholders may be different from methods used by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs.

The Company believes that FFO provides an additional indicator of the operating performance of its properties without giving effect to real estate depreciation and amortization, which assumes the value of real estate assets declines predictably over time. Since values of well-maintained real estate assets have historically risen with market conditions, the Company believes that FFO enhances investors’ understanding of its operating performance. The use of FFO as an indicator of financial performance is influenced not only by the operations of the Company’s properties and interest rates, but also by its capital structure. The Company presents both FFO of its operating partnership and FFO allocable to its common shareholders, as it believes that both are useful performance measures. The Company believes FFO of its operating partnership is a useful performance measure since it conducts substantially all of its business through its operating partnership and, therefore, it reflects the performance of the properties in absolute terms regardless of the ratio of ownership interests of the Company’s common shareholders and the noncontrolling interest in the operating partnership. The Company believes FFO allocable to its common shareholders is a useful performance measure because it is the performance measure that is most directly comparable to net income (loss) attributable to its common shareholders.

In the reconciliation of net income attributable to the Company's common shareholders to FFO allocable to its common shareholders, located in this earnings release, the Company makes an adjustment to add back noncontrolling interest in income (loss) of its operating partnership in order to arrive at FFO of its operating partnership. The Company then applies a percentage to FFO of its operating partnership to arrive at FFO allocable to its common shareholders. The percentage is computed by taking the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period and dividing it by the sum of the weighted average number of common shares and the weighted average number of operating partnership units outstanding during the period.

FFO does not represent cash flows from operations as defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) for purposes of evaluating the Company’s operating performance or to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

During 2011, the Company recorded a gain on extinguishment of debt from discontinued operations. Considering the significance and nature of this item, the Company believes that it is important to identify the impact of the change on its FFO measures for a reader to have a complete understanding of the Company’s results of operations. Therefore, the Company has also presented its FFO measures excluding this item.

Same-Center Net Operating Income

NOI is a supplemental measure of the operating performance of the Company's shopping centers. The Company defines NOI as operating revenues (rental revenues, tenant reimbursements and other income) less property operating expenses (property operating, real estate taxes and maintenance and repairs).

Similar to FFO, the Company computes NOI based on its pro rata share of both consolidated and unconsolidated properties. The Company's definition of NOI may be different than that used by other companies and, accordingly, the Company's NOI may not be comparable to that of other companies. A reconciliation of same-center NOI to net income is located at the end of this earnings release.

Since NOI includes only those revenues and expenses related to the operations of its shopping center properties, the Company believes that same-center NOI provides a measure that reflects trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs and the impact of those trends on the Company's results of operations. Additionally, there are instances when tenants terminate their leases prior to the scheduled expiration date and pay the Company one-time, lump-sum termination fees. These one-time lease termination fees may distort same-center NOI trends and may result in same-center NOI that is not indicative of the ongoing operations of the Company's shopping center properties. Therefore, the Company believes that presenting same-center NOI, excluding lease termination fees, is useful to investors.

Pro Rata Share of Debt

The Company presents debt based on its pro rata ownership share (including the Company's pro rata share of unconsolidated affiliates and excluding noncontrolling interests' share of consolidated properties) because it believes this provides investors a clearer understanding of the Company's total debt obligations which affect the Company's liquidity. A reconciliation of the Company's pro rata share of debt to the amount of debt on the Company's consolidated balance sheet is located at the end of this earnings release.
