During second quarter 2014, the Company signed 61 leases for 380,000 square feet. On a comparable space basis, the Company leased 355,000 square feet at a positive lease spread of 8.9% on a cash basis (new leases increased 8.0% and renewals increased 9.0%).

The Company continues to make progress in its capital recycling efforts, directed towards upgrading the quality of its shopping center portfolio. On March 21, 2014, the Company completed the $92.3 million acquisition of Quartermaster Plaza, with 456,000 leasable square feet, a present average base rent of $13.90 per square foot, and a population density of approximately 325,000 people within a three-mile radius. Further, commencing in the second quarter of 2014 through the recent sale of Carbondale Plaza on July 18, 2014, the Company has sold four properties for an aggregate of $65.3 million, having an average of 138,000 leasable square feet per property, an average base rent of $9.85 per square foot, and an average population density of approximately 22,000 people within a three-mile radius.

2014 Guidance

Funds From Operations Reconciliation

The Company reports FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (NAREIT). FFO is a widely-recognized non-GAAP financial measure for REITs that the Company believes, when considered with financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, is useful to investors in understanding financial performance and providing a relevant basis for comparison among REITs. The Company's computation of FFO, as detailed in the attached schedule, is in accordance with NAREIT's pronouncements. The Company also presents "Operating FFO", which excludes certain items that are not indicative of the results provided by the Company's consolidated portfolio and that affect the comparability of the Company's period-over-period performance, as also detailed in the attached schedule.
