"In addition to our consistent operating results, we are pleased with the improving quality of our shopping center portfolio," commented Bruce Schanzer, President and CEO. "As a result of our capital recycling efforts, we have disposed of four properties for $65.3 million with an average three-mile population density of 22,000 and acquired a property for $92.3 million with a three-mile population density of 325,000. These ongoing portfolio improvements will enable us to drive increases in shareholder value."

Operating FFO for second quarter 2014 was $11.2 million or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to $9.0 million or $0.12 per diluted share for the same period in 2013. Operating FFO for six months ended June 30, 2014 was $21.4 million or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to $17.7 million or $0.24 per diluted share for the same period in 2013.

Portfolio Results

Same-property NOI increased 2.0% for second quarter 2014 compared to the same period in 2013. This figure includes the impact of re-leasing the dark anchor at Oakland Commons with a Walmart Neighborhood Market. Same-property NOI growth, excluding the re-leasing impact was 1.0%.

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.

The Company's total portfolio, excluding properties held for sale, was 93.3% leased at June 30, 2014, compared to 93.6% at December 31, 2013 and 92.7% at June 30, 2013.

Additionally, thus far in 2014, the Company has repaid approximately $135 million of secured mortgage debt with proceeds from the Company's previously-announced $150 million in unsecured term loans, thereby improving balance sheet flexibility.

2014 Guidance

The Company raised the low end of its 2014 Operating FFO guidance to a new range of $0.52 to $0.54 per diluted share from the previous range of $0.51 to $0.54 per diluted share.

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.
