Development Activity
Three new Premium Outlets opened during the quarter:

  • August 1st - Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills (Toronto), Canada is a 360,000 square foot center with over 100 high quality outlet stores. The center is the Canadian entry point for many upscale, U.S. retailers and designer brands and opened 98% leased. The Company owns a 50% interest in this project.
  • August 22nd - St. Louis Premium Outlets in Chesterfield (St. Louis), Missouri is located on the south side of I-64/US Highway 40 east of the Daniel Boone Bridge. The center's first phase of 350,000 square feet with 85 stores opened 100% leased. St. Louis Premium Outlets is a part of Chesterfield Blue Valley, a mixed-use development to include office space, hotel, restaurant and entertainment venues. The Company owns a 60% interest in the project.
  • August 29th - Busan Premium Outlets in Busan, Korea is a 360,000 square foot center that serves the southeastern Korean peninsula, including the cities of Busan, Ulsan and Daegu, as well as local and overseas visitors. The center opened 99% leased. The Company owns a 50% interest in this project, which is its third Premium Outlet Center in Korea.

Four new Premium Outlets are currently under construction:

  • Charlotte Premium Outlets in Charlotte, North Carolina is a 400,000 square foot center scheduled to open in July of 2014.  The Company owns a 50% interest in this project.
  • Twin Cities Premium Outlets in Eagan, Minnesota is a 410,000 square foot center scheduled to open in August of 2014.  The Company owns a 35% interest in this project.
  • Montreal Premium Outlets in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada is a 360,000 square foot center scheduled to open in October of 2014.  The Company owns a 50% interest in this project.
  • Vancouver Designer Outlet in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is a 215,000 square foot center scheduled to open in March of 2015.  The Company owns a 45% interest in this project.

In early October, we opened The Shops at Nanuet, a 750,000 square foot open-air, state-of-the-art center located in Rockland County, New York.  This project transformed the property from an enclosed mall to a main-street outdoor shopping destination providing customers with a wide variety of fashion and specialty retail, dining and entertainment opportunities. In October, we also completed a 105,000 square foot expansion of Orlando Premium Outlets-Vineland Ave which is 100% leased.

Redevelopment and expansion projects, including the addition of anchors and big box tenants, are underway at more than 35 properties in the U.S. and Asia. The Company's share of the cost of these projects is approximately $1.1 billion.

Acquisitions
On October 16, 2013, the Company completed the closing of its acquisition of ownership interests in four McArthurGlen Designer Outlets: Parndorf (Vienna, Austria), La Reggia (Naples, Italy), Noventa di Piave (Venice, Italy) and Roermond (Roermond, the Netherlands).  McArthurGlen is the leader in upscale, European designer outlet centers.

Simon Property Group previously completed the acquisition of a 50% ownership in McArthurGlen's management and development company through a joint venture, as well as an interest in Ashford Designer Outlets in Kent, UK, and became a partner in a new designer outlet under development in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Total cash consideration for the McArthurGlen transaction was approximately $500 million.

Dispositions
During the third quarter, the Company completed the sale of the following assets:

  • Arsenal Mall and Office in Watertown (Boston), Massachusetts
  • Terrace at The Florida Mall in Orlando, Florida

Proceeds from the sale of these assets were approximately $76 million.

Financing Activity
On August 7, 2013, Moody's Investors Service upgraded its rating of Simon Property Group's senior unsecured debt to A2, with a stable outlook.

On October 2, 2013, Simon Property Group, L.P., the Company's majority-owned operating partnership subsidiary, issued €750 million 7-year senior unsecured notes at 2.375%.  This represents the Company's first offering in the euro-denominated debt market.  Net proceeds from the public offering were used to repay euro-denominated borrowings under the Company's unsecured revolving credit facility and for general corporate purposes. 

The Company has also been active in the secured debt markets in 2013, closing or locking rates on 22 new loans totaling approximately $3.0 billion, of which SPG's share is $2.2 billion. The weighted average interest rate on these new loans is 2.85% and the weighted average term is 7.6 years.

2013 Guidance
Today the Company updated and raised its guidance, estimating that FFO will be within a range of $8.72 to $8.78 per diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2013, and net income will be within a range of $4.10 to $4.16 per diluted share. This represents an increase of $0.10 per diluted share for midpoint of the range provided on July 29, 2013. 

The following table provides the reconciliation for the expected range of estimated net income available to common stockholders per diluted share to estimated FFO per diluted share:

Footnotes to Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures












Notes:  





















(A)

2012 primarily represents non-cash gains resulting from our acquisition/disposition activity and the remeasurement of our previously held interest to fair value for those properties in which we now have a controlling interest.












(B)

Excess investment represents the unamortized difference of our investment over equity in the underlying net assets of the related partnerships and joint ventures shown therein.  The Company generally amortizes excess investment over the life of the related properties.












(C)

The Unaudited Joint Venture Statements of Operations do not include any operations or our share of net income or excess investment amortization related to our investment in Klepierre.  Amounts included in Footnotes E below exclude our share of related activity for our investment in Klepierre.  For further information, reference should be made to financial information in Klepierre's public filings and additional discussion and analysis in our Form 10-Q.












(D)

This report contains measures of financial or operating performance that are not specifically defined by GAAP, including FFO and FFO per share.  FFO is a performance measure that is standard in the REIT business.  We believe FFO provides investors with additional information concerning our operating performance and a basis to compare our performance with those of other REITs.  We also use these measures internally to monitor the operating performance of our portfolio. Our computation of these non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures reported by other REITs.













We determine FFO based upon the definition set forth by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). We determine FFO to be our share of consolidated net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, excluding gains and losses from extraordinary items, excluding gains and losses from the sales or disposals of, or any impairment charges related to, previously depreciated retail operating properties, plus the allocable portion of FFO of unconsolidated joint ventures based upon economic ownership interest, and all determined on a consistent basis in accordance with GAAP. 













We have adopted NAREIT's clarification of the definition of FFO that requires it to include the effects of nonrecurring items not classified as extraordinary,  cumulative effect of accounting changes, or a gain or loss resulting from the sale or disposal of, or any impairment charges relating to, previously depreciated retail operating properties. We include in FFO gains and losses realized from the sale of land, outlot buildings, marketable and non-marketable securities, and investment holdings of non-retail real estate. However, you should understand that FFO does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, and is not an alternative to cash flows as a measure of liquidity.












(E)

Includes our share of: 












-

Gains on land sales of $4.2 million and $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $5.4 million and $11.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively












-

Straight-line adjustments to minimum rent of $13.6 million and $11.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $39.7 million and $31.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively












-

Amortization of fair market value of leases from acquisitions of $5.6 million and $5.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, and $21.9 million and $16.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively



-

Debt premium amortization of $10.1 million and $9.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $32.3 million and $29.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively
