Dividends

Today, Simon's Board of Directors declared a quarterly common stock dividend of $1.85 per share.  This is a 12.1% increase year-over-year.  The dividend will be payable on November 30, 2017 to stockholders of record on November 16, 2017.  The Company will pay $7.15 per share in common stock dividends in 2017, a 10.0% increase year-over-year.

Simon's Board of Directors also declared the quarterly dividend on its 8 3/8% Series J Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock (NYSE: SPGPrJ) of $1.046875 per share, payable on December 29, 2017 to stockholders of record on December 15, 2017. 

Development Activity

On September 14th, we opened The Shops at Clearfork, a 500,000 square foot, open-air luxury shopping, dining, entertainment and mixed-use - including office - destination in Fort Worth, Texas.  Anchored by Neiman Marcus, The Shops at Clearfork is home to a carefully curated mix of luxury, home furnishing and specialty retailers.  Simon owns a 45% interest in this center.         

During the third quarter, we completed a 123,000 square foot expansion to Allen Premium Outlets (Dallas, Texas) that included approximately 30 new specialty retailers.  Simon owns 100% of this center. 

Construction continues on two new development projects:

  • Premium Outlet Collection Edmonton IA (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada); scheduled to open in May 2018. Simon owns a 50% interest in this project.
  • Denver Premium Outlets (Thornton, Colorado); scheduled to open in September 2018. Simon owns 100% of this project.

Construction also continues on significant redevelopment and expansion projects at properties including The Shops at Riverside, Aventura Mall, Town Center at Boca Raton and Toronto Premium Outlets

At quarter-end, redevelopment and expansion projects, including the addition of new anchors, were underway at 31 properties in the U.S. and Canada.  Simon's share of the costs of all new development and redevelopment projects under construction at quarter-end was approximately $1.0 billion.

Financing Activity

The Company was active in both the unsecured and secured credit markets through the first nine months of the year, continuing to lower our effective borrowing costs.

During the first nine months, the Company closed on 12 mortgage loans totaling approximately $2.0 billion (U.S. dollar equivalent), of which Simon's share is $1.4 billion.  The weighted average interest rate and weighted average term on these loans is 3.12% and 6.8 years, respectively. 

As of September 30, 2017, Simon had more than $6.5 billion of liquidity consisting of cash on hand, including its share of joint venture cash, and available capacity under its revolving credit facilities.

2017 Guidance

The Company currently estimates net income to be within a range of $6.23 to $6.28 per diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2017 and that FFO will be within a range of $11.17 to $11.22 per diluted share. This current range is an increase of $0.03 on the low end compared to the range provided on August 1, 2017 and includes an expected $0.03 per diluted share negative impact in the fourth quarter due to the ongoing repair and restoration of the Company's two centers located in Puerto Rico.      

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:

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in any forward‑looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, the Company can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained, and it is possible that the Company's actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these forward‑looking statements due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors.

Footnotes to Unaudited Financial Information














Notes:  

























(A)

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.














(B)

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














(C)

This report contains measures of financial or operating performance that are not specifically defined by GAAP, including FFO, FFO per share, comparable FFO per share and comparable EPS.  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.














(D)

- Gains on land sales of $2.4 million and $3.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $10.1 million and $5.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

- Amortization of fair market value of leases from acquisitions increased income by $1.4 million and $2.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $4.6 million and $7.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.
