Operating FFO

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, Operating FFO was $81.2 million, or $0.31 per share, compared with $58.4 million, or $0.27 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2015, a 15 percent increase on a per share basis. Per share amounts are on a fully diluted basis.

Positive factors impacting first-quarter 2016 Operating FFO, compared with the first quarter of 2015, included increased net operating income (NOI) from the mature portfolio of $13.0 million, increased Operating FFO from new property openings and acquisitions of $8.9 million, decreased interest expense, both corporate and in the mature portfolio, of $8.7 million, and increased capitalized interest from active development projects of $3.8 million. These positive factors were partially offset primarily by lower land sales at Stapleton of $2.1 million and reducing Operating FFO from properties sold of $6.9 million.

Factors impacting Operating FFO for the first quarter are illustrated in a bridge diagram included in the company's supplemental package for the three months ended March 31, 2016, furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Form 8-K, and available on the company's website, www.forestcity.net.

Operating FFO is a non-GAAP measure derived from FFO. The company believes Operating FFO provides investors with additional information about its core operations. Included with this press release is a table reconciling FFO to Operating FFO.

FFO

Total FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $290.6 million, or $1.08 per share, compared with $20.6 million, or $0.10 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Per-share amounts are on a fully diluted basis.

In addition to the factors listed above related to Operating FFO, first-quarter 2016 FFO results were positively impacted primarily by gains totaling $245.8 million, net of tax, or $0.90 per share, related to the company's disposition in the first quarter of its interest in the Nets basketball team and the 625 Fulton Street development parcel in Brooklyn.

FFO and FFO per share are non-GAAP measures commonly used by publicly traded real estate companies. Included with this press release is a table reconciling net earnings/loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, to FFO.

Net Earnings/Loss

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the company had net earnings of $244.0 million, or $0.92 per share, compared with a net loss of $54.2 million, or $0.27 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2015. In addition to the factors listed above related to FFO and Operating FFO, the variance in net earnings for the quarter was also impacted by a total net gain, after tax, of $44.7 million related to the company's divestiture in the first quarter of its interest in the Barclays Center arena in Brooklyn, the Avenue retail and parking in Cleveland, its military family housing business and its joint venture with QIC related to Westchester's Ridge Hill in Yonkers. This gain was partially offset by a non-cash impairment of $12.5 million related to the Shops at Wiregrass near Tampa. 

Additional explanations of factors impacting FFO, Operating FFO and net earnings/loss for the three months ended March 31, 2016, are included in the company's supplemental package for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Revenues

Consolidated revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2016, were $226.3 million, compared with $208.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. The variance in revenues for the quarter, compared with comparable period in 2015, is primarily the result of the company's acquisition in June, 2015, of full equity ownership of seven life science office properties and two parking facilities at University Park at MIT in Cambridge, Mass.

Commentary

"Our strong results in the first quarter reflect continued solid fundamentals in our portfolio and markets," said David J. LaRue, Forest City president and chief executive officer. "Quarter-over-quarter occupancy gains and rent growth, particularly in office, resulted in meaningful revenue increases. Lower expenses for utilities and snow removal from the mild winter also helped drive comparable property net operating income increases that exceeded our expectations for the quarter. We expect total comp NOI growth to moderate as the year progresses.

"We had solid growth in Operating FFO, up 15 percent on a per share basis, compared with the first quarter of 2015. The improvement was driven by growth in the mature portfolio, new property openings and acquisitions, and lower interest expense as we continue to focus our portfolio on core products in strong markets, reduce leverage and drive margin improvement. Our FFO results, net of gains from dispositions in the quarter, were in line with our expectations.

"Total comp NOI was up 9.7 percent, compared with the first quarter last year, with increases of 12.1 percent in office, 8.3 percent in retail and 7.8 percent in apartments. Office results were driven by the lease-up of prior-year vacancies at 88 Sidney Street at University Park at MIT in Cambridge and One Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn, and by rent growth and ongoing strong demand in those core markets, which account for more than 80 percent of our office NOI. In retail, our regional malls continue to benefit from the renovation, expansion and re-merchandising programs we have executed over the past several years. Those programs have contributed to rent growth, occupancy gains and an improved merchandise mix at many of our malls. Our apartment portfolio also had a strong quarter, with rent growth and stable occupancy, particularly in our core markets.

"The first quarter also saw a significant volume of non-core asset sales, together with expansion of our QIC regional mall joint ventures. During the quarter, we completed the sale of our interests in the Barclays Center arena and Nets, our military housing business, the 625 Fulton development parcel in Brooklyn and the Avenue retail center and parking in Cleveland. We also closed a new regional mall joint venture with QIC for Westchester's Ridge Hill in Yonkers, and, shortly after the end of the quarter, we closed a second QIC joint venture for Ballston Quarter in Arlington, Virginia. These transactions represent a total gross asset value, at our pro-rata share, of $1.2 billion, from which we have generated total net proceeds of approximately $800 million, with roughly $215 million of that total in notes receivable.

"In addition, we expect to close another joint venture with QIC for the Shops at Wiregrass near Tampa by midyear.  With the Wiregrass closing, 11 of the company's 14 regional malls will be part of our joint ventures with QIC. We are also under contract to sell our federally-assisted housing business, with closings expected by yearend.  These transactions represent an additional $280 million in gross asset value, at pro rata, and approximately $90 million in net proceeds.  Lastly, we expect to generate an additional $200 million in equity from additional dispositions by the end of 2016. While these asset dispositions and joint ventures reduce total NOI and FFO, they are very much in line with our strategies and we expect to use the significant majority of the proceeds to further reduce leverage.           

"During the quarter, we also continued to aggressively pursue opportunities to improve our balance sheet and debt metrics. In early March, we completed separate, privately negotiated agreements to repurchase a total of $157.6 million aggregate principal amount of our outstanding senior notes due 2018 and 2020. As a result of these and other de-leveraging efforts, at the end of the first quarter our ratio of net debt to adjusted EBITDA stood at just over 9 times, and we are on track to achieve our previously stated target of 7-to-8 times by mid-2017.

"In May 2015, we announced a focused effort to improve operating margins through both cost reduction and revenue enhancement, with an initial target of $35 to $45 million in savings. We subsequently identified additional improvement opportunities and are now on track to achieve total run-rate margin improvement of $60 million by mid-year 2017.

"Earlier this week we closed an expansion of our unsecured revolving credit facility from $500 million to $600 million, along with the closing of a new credit agreement, which provides for a $335 million term loan facility with members of our bank group. We intend to use the term loan facility, together with cash from dispositions, to address the maturity of the mortgage on the New York Times building by yearend and add the building to our growing pool of unencumbered assets. We see this as another important step in our long-term de-leveraging effort and in achieving our goal of creating a strong, sustaining capital structure."

Comparable NOI, Occupancies and Rent

Overall comparable NOI increased 9.7 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2016, compared with the same period in 2015, with increases of 12.1 percent in office, 8.3 percent in retail and 7.8 percent in apartments.

Comparable office occupancies decreased marginally to 95.3 percent at March 31, 2016, compared with 95.5 percent at March 31, 2015. For the rolling 12-month period ended March 31, 2016, rent per square foot in new office same-space leases increased 4.8 percent over prior rents.

In the retail portfolio, comparable retail occupancies at March 31, 2016, increased to 94.2 percent, up from 93.8 percent at March 31, 2015. Sales in the company's regional malls averaged $558 per square foot on a rolling 12-month basis, flat with sales per square foot at December 31, 2015, and up from $550 per square foot at March 31, 2015. For the rolling 12-month period ended March 31, 2016, new, same-space leases in the company's regional malls increased 23.6 percent over prior rents.

In the residential portfolio, average monthly rents per unit for the company's total comparable apartments rose to $1,499 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a 3.7 percent increase compared with $1,445 for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Comparable average rents per unit in the company's core markets were $1,919, a 3.8 percent increase from $1,848 for the comparable period in 2015. Comparable economic occupancies for the three months ended March 31, 2016, were 94.4 percent, down marginally from 94.7 percent for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

Comparable NOI, defined as NOI from stabilized properties operated in the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, is a non-GAAP financial measure and is based on the pro-rata consolidation method, also a non-GAAP financial measure. Included in this release is a schedule that presents comparable NOI using the full-consolidation method and a reconciliation of NOI to earnings/loss before income taxes.

Supplemental Package

Please refer to the Investors section of the company's website at www.forestcity.net for a supplemental package, which the company furnished to the SEC on Form 8-K on May 5, 2016, and is also available on the company's website, www.forestcity.net. The supplemental package includes operating and financial information for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, with reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures, such as Operating FFO, FFO, NOI, comparable NOI and results prepared using the pro-rata consolidation method, to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Investor Presentations

Please note the company periodically posts updated investor presentations on the Investors page of its website at www.forestcity.net.  It is possible the periodic updates may include information deemed to be material. Therefore, the company encourages investors, the media, and other interested parties to review the Investors page of its website at www.forestcity.net for the most recent investor presentation.

FFO

The company uses FFO, along with net earnings/loss to report its operating results. The majority of its peers in the publicly traded real estate industry are REITs and report operations using FFO as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT). Although the company was not a REIT for the prior period presented, management believes it is important to publish this measure to allow for easier comparison of its performance to its peers. The major difference between the company and its REIT peers is that it was a taxable entity and any taxable income it generated could have resulted in payment of federal or state income taxes. The company's REIT peers typically do not pay federal or state income taxes on their qualified REIT investments, but distribute a significant portion of their taxable income to shareholders. Due to the company's effective tax management policies, it has not historically been a significant payer of income taxes. This has allowed the company to retain its internally generated cash flows but has also resulted in large expenses for deferred taxes as required by GAAP.

FFO is defined by NAREIT as net earnings excluding the following items at the company's proportional share: i) gain (loss) on full or partial disposition of rental properties, divisions and other investments (net of tax); ii) non-cash charges for real estate depreciation and amortization; iii) impairment of depreciable real estate (net of tax); and iv) cumulative or retrospective effect of change in accounting principle (net of tax).

Operating FFO

The company defines Operating FFO as FFO adjusted to exclude: i) impairment of non-depreciable real estate; ii) write-offs of abandoned development projects and demolition costs; iii) income recognized on state and federal historic and other tax credits; iv) gains or losses from extinguishment of debt; v) change in fair market value of nondesignated hedges; vi) gains or losses on change in control of interests; vii) the adjustment to recognize rental revenues and rental expense using the straight-line method; viii) participation payments to ground lessors on refinancing of our properties; ix) other transactional items; x) the Nets pre-tax FFO; and xi) income taxes on FFO. The company believes its presentation of FFO and Operating FFO provides important supplemental information to its investors. Operating FFO should not be considered to be an alternative to net earnings computed under GAAP as an indicator of our operating performance and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Pro-Rata Consolidation Method

This press release contains certain financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP under the full consolidation accounting method and certain financial measures prepared in accordance with the pro-rata consolidation method (non-GAAP). The company presents certain financial amounts under the pro-rata method because it believes this information is useful to investors as this method reflects the manner in which the company operates its business. In line with industry practice, the company has made a large number of investments in which its economic ownership is less than 100 percent as a means of procuring opportunities and sharing risk. Under the pro-rata consolidation method, the company presents its investments proportionate to its economic share of ownership. Under GAAP, the full consolidation method is used to report partnership assets and liabilities consolidated at 100 percent if deemed to be under the company's control or if the company is deemed to be the primary beneficiary of the variable interest entities (VIE), even if its ownership is not 100 percent. The company provides reconciliations from the full consolidation method to the pro-rata consolidation method in the tables included with this release and throughout its supplemental package.

NOI

NOI, a non-GAAP measure, reflects the company's share of the core operations of its rental real estate portfolio, prior to any financing activity. NOI is defined as revenues less operating expenses of consolidated and unconsolidated subsidiaries within its Commercial Group and its Residential Group, except for revenues and cost of sales associated with sales of land held in these segments. The activities of the Land Development Group and Corporate Activities do not involve the operations of its rental property portfolio and therefore are not included in NOI.

The company believes NOI provides important information about its core operations and, along with earnings, is necessary to understand its business and operating results.  NOI may not be directly comparable to similarly-titled measures reported by other companies.

Comparable NOI

In addition to NOI, the company uses comparable NOI as a metric to evaluate the performance of its multifamily, office and retail properties. This measure provides a same-store comparison of operating results of all stabilized properties that are open and operating in all periods presented. Non-capitalizable development costs and unallocated management and service company overhead are not directly attributable to an operating property and are considered non-comparable NOI. In addition, certain income and expense items at the property level, such as lease termination income, real estate tax assessments or rebates, certain litigation expenses incurred and any related legal settlements and NOI impacts of changes in ownership percentages, are excluded from comparable NOI and are considered non-comparable NOI. Retained operating properties that are considered non-comparable are disclosed in the company's supplemental package, which the company will furnish to the SEC on Form 8-K. Other properties and activities such as Arena, federally assisted housing, military housing, straight-line rent adjustments and participation payments as a result of refinancing transactions are not evaluated on a comparable basis and the NOI from these properties and activities is considered non-comparable NOI.

The company's actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements due to various risks, uncertainties and other factors.
