Kite Realty Group Trust (NYSE:KRG) (the “Company”) announced today operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013. Financial statements and exhibits attached to this release include results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

John A. Kite, Kite Realty Group’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said "Our team successfully completed and integrated the acquisition of a $304 million unencumbered portfolio of high-quality retail properties during the quarter, enabling us to expand our presence in our core markets and de-lever our balance sheet. We are eager to begin adding value to these assets through our intense redevelopment and asset management programs. In addition, we delivered two very strong 90% leased development projects to the operating portfolio and expect to deliver another in the first quarter. Our overall operating portfolio also continues to perform very well as we ended the year at 95.3% leased, achieved very solid increases in our cash rent spreads, and grew our same property net operating income by a strong 4.9%. We are looking forward to capitalizing on this solid performance in 2014."
