EXPLANATORY NOTE
This report combines the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2022 of Kite Realty Group Trust, Kite Realty Group, L.P. and its subsidiaries. Unless stated otherwise or the context otherwise requires, references to “Kite Realty Group Trust” or the “Parent Company” mean Kite Realty Group Trust, and references to the “Operating Partnership” mean Kite Realty Group, L.P. and its consolidated subsidiaries. The terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership, collectively, and those entities owned or controlled by the Parent Company and/or the Operating Partnership.
The Operating Partnership is engaged in the ownership, operation, acquisition, development and redevelopment of high-quality, open-air shopping centers and mixed-use assets in select markets in the United States, and the Parent Company conducts substantially all of its activities through the Operating Partnership and its wholly owned subsidiaries. The Parent Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and as of March 31, 2022 owned approximately 98.9% of the common partnership interests in the Operating Partnership (“General Partner Units”). The remaining 1.1% of the common partnership interests (“Limited Partner Units” and, together with the General Partner Units, the “Common Units”) are owned by the limited partners.
We believe combining the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q of the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership into this single report benefits investors by:
enhancing investors’ understanding of the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership by enabling investors to view the business as a whole in the same manner as management views and operates the business;
eliminating duplicative disclosure and providing a more streamlined and readable presentation of information as a substantial portion of the Company’s disclosure applies to both the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership; and
creating time and cost efficiencies through the preparation of one combined report instead of two separate reports.
We believe it is important to understand the few differences between the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership in the context of how we operate as an interrelated consolidated company. The Parent Company has no material assets or liabilities other than its investment in the Operating Partnership. The Parent Company issues public equity from time to time but does not have any indebtedness as all debt is incurred by the Operating Partnership. In addition, the Parent Company currently does not nor does it intend to guarantee any debt of the Operating Partnership. The Operating Partnership has numerous wholly owned subsidiaries, and it also owns interests in certain joint ventures. These subsidiaries and joint ventures own and operate retail shopping centers and other real estate assets. The Operating Partnership is structured as a partnership with no publicly traded equity. Except for net proceeds from equity issuances by the Parent Company, which are contributed to the Operating Partnership in exchange for General Partner Units, the Operating Partnership generates the capital required by the business through its operations, its incurrence of indebtedness and the issuance of Limited Partner Units to third parties.
Shareholders’ equity and partners’ capital are the main areas of difference between the consolidated financial statements of the Parent Company and those of the Operating Partnership. In order to highlight this and other differences between the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership, there are separate sections in this report, as applicable, that separately discuss the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership, including separate financial statements and separate Exhibit 31 and 32 certifications. In the sections that combine disclosure of the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership, this report refers to actions or holdings as being actions or holdings of the collective Company.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited)
($ in thousands, except share, per share, unit and per unit amounts and where indicated in millions or billions)
NOTE 1. ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Kite Realty Group Trust (the “Parent Company”), through its majority-owned subsidiary, Kite Realty Group, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”), owns interests in various operating subsidiaries and joint ventures engaged in the ownership, operation, acquisition, development and redevelopment of high-quality, open-air shopping centers and mixed-use assets in select markets in the United States. The terms “Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership, collectively, and those entities owned or controlled by the Parent Company and/or the Operating Partnership.
The Operating Partnership was formed on August 16, 2004, when the Parent Company contributed properties and the net proceeds from an initial public offering of shares of its common stock to the Operating Partnership. The Parent Company was organized in Maryland in 2004 to succeed in the development, acquisition, construction and real estate businesses of its predecessor. We believe the Company qualifies as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) under provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.
The Parent Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership, and as of March 31, 2022 owned approximately 98.9% of the common partnership interests in the Operating Partnership (“General Partner Units”). The remaining 1.1% of the common partnership interests (“Limited Partner Units” and, together with the General Partner Units, the “Common Units”) were owned by the limited partners. As the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership, the Parent Company has full, exclusive and complete responsibility and discretion in the day-to-day management and control of the Operating Partnership. The Parent Company and the Operating Partnership are operated as one enterprise. The management of the Parent Company consists of the same members as the management of the Operating Partnership. As the sole general partner with control of the Operating Partnership, the Parent Company consolidates the Operating Partnership for financial reporting purposes, and the Parent Company does not have any significant assets other than its investment in the Operating Partnership.
The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) may have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the presentation not misleading. The unaudited financial statements as of March 31, 2022 and for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 include all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary in the opinion of management to present fairly the financial information set forth therein. The consolidated financial statements in this Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in the combined Annual Report on Form 10-K of the Parent Company and the Operating Partnership for the year ended December 31, 2021.
The preparation of financial statements in accordance with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected on an annual basis.
On October 22, 2021, we completed a merger with Retail Properties of America, Inc. (“RPAI”) in accordance with the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated July 18, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, its wholly owned subsidiary KRG Oak, LLC (“Merger Sub”) and RPAI, pursuant to which RPAI merged with and into Merger Sub (the “Merger”). Immediately following the closing of the Merger, Merger Sub merged with and into the Operating Partnership so that all of the assets and liabilities of the Company continue to be held at or below the Operating Partnership level. The transaction value was approximately $4.7 billion, including the assumption of approximately $1.8 billion of debt. We acquired 100 operating retail properties and 5 active development projects through the Merger along with multiple parcels of entitled land for future value creation.
12


Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each outstanding share of RPAI common stock converted into the right to receive 0.623 common shares of the Company plus cash in lieu of fractional Company shares. The aggregate value of the Merger consideration paid or payable to former holders of RPAI common stock was approximately $2.8 billion, excluding the value of RPAI restricted stock units that vested at closing and certain restricted share awards assumed by the Company at closing. In connection with the Merger, the Operating Partnership issued an equivalent amount of General Partner Units to the Parent Company.
As of March 31, 2022, we owned interests in 181 operating retail properties totaling approximately 28.8 million square feet and 1 office property with 0.3 million square feet. Of the 181 operating retail properties, 11 contain an office component. We also owned 7 development projects under construction as of this date. Of the 181 operating retail properties, 178 are consolidated in these financial statements and the remaining 3 are accounted for under the equity method.

Investment properties, at cost$7,627,581 $7,592,348 
Components of Rental Income including Allowance for Uncollectible Accounts
Rental income related to the Company’s operating leases is comprised of the following for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:
Three Months Ended March 31,
20222021
Fixed contractual lease payments – operating leases$148,790 $54,803 
Variable lease payments – operating leases37,025 13,929

Straight-line rent reserve for uncollectibility(62)(110)
Amortization of in-place lease liabilities, net583 479 
Rental income$189,858 $67,890 
The Company makes estimates as to the collectability of its accounts receivable. In making these estimates, the Company reviews a variety of qualitative and quantitative data and considers such facts as the credit quality of our customer, historical write-off experience and current economic trends, to make a subjective determination. An allowance for uncollectible accounts, including future credit losses of the accrued straight-line rent receivables, is maintained for estimated losses resulting from the inability of certain tenants to meet contractual obligations under their lease agreements.
Short-Term Deposits
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had a $125.0 million short-term deposit held in a custody account at Bank of New York Mellon to fund 2022 debt maturities or other borrowings. The deposit balance, which approximates fair value, earned interest at a rate of the Federal Funds Rate plus 43 basis points and matured on April 7, 2022, the proceeds of which were used to repay borrowings on the Company’s revolving line of credit. Interest income on the deposit is recorded within “Other expense, net” on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.
Consolidation and Investments in Joint Ventures
The accompanying financial statements are presented on a consolidated basis and include all accounts of the Parent Company, the Operating Partnership, the taxable REIT subsidiaries (“TRSs”) of the Operating Partnership, subsidiaries of the
13


Operating Partnership that are controlled and any variable interest entities (“VIEs”) in which the Operating Partnership is the primary beneficiary. As of March 31, 2022, we owned investments in 3 consolidated joint ventures that were VIEs in which the partners did not have substantive participating rights and we were the primary beneficiary. As of March 31, 2022, these consolidated VIEs had mortgage debt of $28.9 million, which were secured by assets of the VIEs totaling $116.6 million. The Operating Partnership guarantees the mortgage debt of these VIEs.
The Operating Partnership is considered a VIE as the limited partners do not hold kick-out rights or substantive participating rights. The Parent Company consolidates the Operating Partnership as it is the primary beneficiary.
Income Taxes and REIT Compliance
Parent Company
The Parent Company, which is considered a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, has been organized and operated, and intends to continue to operate, in a manner that will enable it to maintain its qualification as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes. As a result, it generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on the earnings that it distributes to the extent it distributes its “REIT taxable income” (determined before the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gains) to shareholders of the Parent Company and meets certain other requirements on a recurring basis. To the extent that it satisfies this distribution requirement, but distributes less than 100% of its taxable income, it will be subject to U.S. federal corporate income tax on its undistributed REIT taxable income. REITs are subject to a number of organizational and operational requirements. If the Parent Company fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, it will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income at regular corporate rates for a period of four years following the year in which qualification is lost. We may also be subject to certain U.S. federal, state and local taxes on our income and property and to U.S. federal income and excise taxes on our undistributed taxable income even if the Parent Company does qualify as a REIT. The Operating Partnership intends to continue to make distributions to the Parent Company in amounts sufficient to assist the Parent Company in adhering to REIT requirements and maintaining its REIT status.
We have elected to treat Kite Realty Holdings, LLC as a TRS of the Operating Partnership. In addition, in connection with the Merger, we assumed RPAI’s existing TRS, IWR Protective Corporation, as a TRS of the Operating Partnership and we may elect to treat other subsidiaries as TRSs in the future. This election enables us to receive income and provide services that would otherwise be impermissible for a REIT. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are established for temporary differences between the financial reporting bases and the tax bases of assets and liabilities at the tax rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance if it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.
Operating Partnership
The allocated share of income and loss, other than the operations of our TRSs, is included in the income tax returns of the Operating Partnership’s partners. Accordingly, the only U.S. federal income taxes included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements are in connection with the TRSs.
Noncontrolling Interests
We report the non-redeemable noncontrolling interests in subsidiaries as equity, and the amount of consolidated net income attributable to these noncontrolling interests is set forth separately in the consolidated financial statements. The following table summarizes the non-redeemable noncontrolling interests in consolidated properties for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021:
($ in thousands)20222021
Noncontrolling interests balance as of January 1,$5,146 $698 
Net loss allocable to noncontrolling interests, excluding redeemable noncontrolling interests12 — 
Noncontrolling interests balance as of March 31,$5,158 $698 
Noncontrolling Interests – Joint Venture
Prior to the Merger with RPAI, RPAI entered into a joint venture related to the development, ownership and operation of the multifamily rental portion of the expansion project at One Loudoun Downtown – Pads G & H. The Company owns 90% of the joint venture.
14


As of March 31, 2022, the Company has funded $0.7 million of the partner’s development costs related to One Loudoun Downtown – Pads G & H through a loan provided by the Company to the joint venture. The loan is secured by the joint venture project, is required to be repaid subsequent to the completion of construction and stabilization of the project and is eliminated upon consolidation. Under terms defined in the joint venture agreement, after construction completion and stabilization of the development project, the Company has the ability to call, and the joint venture partner has the ability to put to the Company, subject to certain conditions, the joint venture partner’s interest in the joint venture at fair value.
The joint venture is considered a VIE primarily because the Company’s joint venture partner does not have substantive kick-out rights or substantive participating rights. The Company is considered the primary beneficiary as it has a controlling financial interest in the joint venture. As such, the Company has consolidated this joint venture and presented the joint venture partners’ interests as noncontrolling interests.
Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests – Limited Partners
Limited Partner Units are redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership. We classify redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets outside of permanent equity because we may be required to pay cash to holders of Limited Partner Units upon redemption of their interests in the Operating Partnership or deliver registered shares upon their conversion. The carrying amount of the redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership is reflected at the greater of historical book value or redemption value with a corresponding adjustment to additional paid-in capital. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the redemption value of the redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership exceeded the historical book value, and the balances were accordingly adjusted to redemption value.
We allocate net operating results of the Operating Partnership after noncontrolling interests in the consolidated properties based on the partners’ respective weighted average ownership interest. We adjust the redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership at the end of each reporting period to reflect their interests in the Operating Partnership or redemption value. This adjustment is reflected in our shareholders’ and Parent Company’s equity. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the weighted average interests of the Parent Company and the limited partners in the Operating Partnership were as follows:
Three Months Ended March 31,
 20222021
Parent Company’s weighted average interest in Operating Partnership98.9 %97.1 %
Limited partners’ weighted average interests in Operating Partnership1.1 %2.9 %
At March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Parent Company’s interest and the limited partners’ redeemable noncontrolling ownership interests in the Operating Partnership were 98.9% and 1.1%.
Concurrent with the Parent Company’s initial public offering and related formation transactions, certain individuals received Limited Partner Units of the Operating Partnership in exchange for their interests in certain properties. The limited partners have the right to redeem Limited Partner Units for cash or, at the Parent Company’s election, common shares of the Parent Company in an amount equal to the market value of an equivalent number of common shares of the Parent Company at the time of redemption. Such common shares must be registered, which is not fully in the Parent Company’s control. Therefore, the limited partners’ interest is not reflected in permanent equity. The Parent Company also has the right to redeem the Limited Partner Units directly from the limited partner in exchange for either cash in the amount specified above or a number of its common shares equal to the number of Limited Partner Units being redeemed.
There were 2,516,282 and 2,377,777 Limited Partner Units outstanding as of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, respectively. The increase in Limited Partner Units outstanding from December 31, 2021 is due to non-cash compensation awards made to our executive officers in the form of Limited Partner Units.
Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests – Subsidiaries
Prior to the merger with Inland Diversified Real Estate Trust, Inc. (“Inland Diversified”) in 2014, Inland Diversified formed joint ventures with the previous owners of certain properties and issued Class B units in 3 joint ventures that indirectly own those properties. The Class B units related to 1 of these three joint ventures remain outstanding and are accounted for as noncontrolling interests in the remaining venture. The remaining Class B units will become redeemable at the respective partner’s election in October 2022 and the fulfillment of certain redemption criteria. Beginning in November 2022, the Class B units can be redeemed at the election of either our partner or us for cash or Limited Partner Units in the Operating
15


Partnership. The Class B units do not have a maturity date, and none are mandatorily redeemable unless either party has elected for the units to be redeemed. We consolidate this joint venture because we control the decision-making and our joint venture partner has limited protective rights.
We classify the redeemable noncontrolling interests related to the remaining Class B units in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets outside of permanent equity because, under certain circumstances, we may be required to pay cash to Class B unitholders in this subsidiary upon redemption of their interests. The carrying amount of these redeemable noncontrolling interests is required to be reflected at the greater of initial book value or redemption value with a corresponding adjustment to additional paid-in capital. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the redemption amounts of these interests did not exceed their fair value nor did they exceed the initial book value.
The redeemable noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership and subsidiaries for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were as follows:

Fair Value Measurements
We follow the framework established under Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, for measuring fair value of non-financial assets and liabilities that are not required or permitted to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis but only in certain circumstances, such as a business combination or upon determination of an impairment.
Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets are categorized based on the inputs to the valuation techniques as follows:
Level 1 fair value inputs are quoted prices in active markets for identical instruments to which we have access.
Level 2 fair value inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for similar instruments, either directly or indirectly, and appropriately consider counterparty creditworthiness in the valuations.
Level 3 fair value inputs reflect our best estimate of inputs and assumptions market participants would use in pricing an instrument at the measurement date. The inputs are unobservable in the market and significant to the valuation estimate.
In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability.
Effects of Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848), which contains practical expedients for reference rate reform related activities that impact debt, leases, derivatives and other contracts. The guidance in ASU 2020-04 is optional and may be elected over time as reference rate reform activities occur. In March 2020, the Company elected to apply the hedge accounting expedients related to probability and the assessments of effectiveness for future LIBOR-indexed cash flows to assume that the index upon which future hedged transactions will be based matches the index on the
16


corresponding derivatives. Application of these expedients preserves the presentation of derivatives consistent with past presentation. The Company continues to evaluate the impact of the guidance and may apply other elections as applicable as additional changes in the market occur.
NOTE 3. ACQUISITIONS
RPAI Merger
On October 22, 2021, we completed a Merger with RPAI pursuant to which RPAI merged with and into Merger Sub, with the Company continuing as the surviving public company. Immediately following the closing of the Merger, Merger Sub merged with and into the Operating Partnership so that all of the assets and liabilities of the Company continue to be held at or below the Operating Partnership level. The aggregate value of the Merger consideration paid or payable to former holders of RPAI common stock was approximately $2.8 billion, excluding the value of RPAI restricted stock units that vested at closing and certain restricted share awards assumed by the Company at closing. The total purchase price was calculated based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock on October 21, 2021, the last business day prior to the effective time of the Merger, which was $21.18 per share. At the effective time of the Merger, each share of RPAI common stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time was converted into the right to receive 0.623 newly issued Company common shares plus cash in lieu of fractional Company shares. In addition, holders of (i) options to purchase shares of RPAI common stock, (ii) certain awards of restricted shares of RPAI common stock (as agreed in accordance with the Merger Agreement), and (iii) restricted stock units representing the right to vest in and be issued shares of RPAI common stock became entitled to receive cash and/or Company common shares in accordance with the terms of the Merger Agreement. The Company assumed certain existing awards of restricted shares of RPAI common stock, each of which were converted into 0.623 awards of restricted Company common shares plus cash in lieu of fractional Company shares in accordance with the Merger Agreement. In connection with the Merger, the Operating Partnership issued an equivalent amount of General Partner Units to the Parent Company. The number of RPAI common stock outstanding as of October 21, 2021 converted to shares of the Company’s common stock was determined as follows:
RPAI common stock outstanding as of October 21, 2021214,797,869 
Exchange ratio0.623 
Company common shares issued for outstanding RPAI common stock133,814,066 
Company common shares issued for RPAI restricted stock units1,117,399

As a result of the Merger, the Company acquired 100 operating retail properties and 5 active development projects under construction along with multiple parcels of entitled land for future value creation. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company incurred $0.9 million of merger and acquisition costs consisting primarily of professional fees and technology costs, which are recorded within “Merger and acquisition costs” in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. In addition, the Company assumed approximately $1.8 billion of debt in connection with the Merger.
“Rental income” and “Net income attributable to common shareholders” in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income include revenues from the RPAI portfolio of $123.6 million and net loss of $20.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, which includes $92.9 million of depreciation and amortization, as a result of the Merger.

Purchase Price Allocation
In accordance with ASC 805-10, Business Combinations, the Company accounted for the Merger as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting. Based on the value of the common shares issued, the total fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the Merger was $2.8 billion as of October 22, 2021, the date of the Merger.
The Company used the following valuation methodologies, inputs and assumptions to estimate the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed:
Investment properties: The Company estimated the fair value of the buildings on an as-if-vacant basis using either a direct capitalization method or a discounted cash flow analysis. Comparable market data, real estate tax assessments and independent appraisals were used in estimating the fair value of the land acquired. These valuation methodologies are based on Level 2 and Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy, such as estimates of future income growth, capitalization rates and cash flow projections at the respective properties.
Acquired lease intangible assets: The Company estimated the fair value of its above-market and below-market in-place leases based on the present value (using a discount rate that reflects the risk associated with the leases acquired) of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place leases and (ii) management’s estimate of fair market lease rates for the corresponding in-place leases, measured over the remaining non-cancelable term of the leases. Any below-market renewal options are also considered in the in-place lease values. This valuation methodology is based on Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy.
In-place lease liabilities: The Company estimated the fair value of its in-place leases using independent and internal sources, which are methods similar to those used by independent appraisers. Factors we consider in our analysis include an estimate of costs to execute similar leases including tenant improvements, leasing commissions and foregone costs and rent received during the estimated lease-up period as if the space was vacant. This valuation methodology is based on Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy.
Mortgage and other indebtedness: The Company estimated the fair value of the secured and unsecured debt assumed, including related derivative instruments, using third party and independent sources for our estimates. Any difference between the fair value and stated value of the assumed debt is recorded as a discount or premium and amortized over the remaining term of the loan using the interest method. This valuation methodology is based on Level 2 and Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy.
The range of the most significant Level 3 assumptions utilized in determining the value of the real estate and related assets acquired through the Merger with RPAI are as follows:
Range of Assumptions
Net rental rate per square foot – Anchors$4.00 to $45.00
Net rental rate per square foot – Small Shops$7.00 to $140.00
Capitalization rate5.50% to 12.00%

The above acquisition was funded using a combination of available cash on hand and proceeds from the Company’s unsecured revolving line of credit. Substantially all of the purchase price was allocated to investment properties. The Company did not acquire any properties during the three months ended March 31, 2021.
NOTE 4. DISPOSITIONS
The Company did not sell any operating properties during the three months ended March 31, 2022.

Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility
On October 22, 2021, in connection with the Merger, the Operating Partnership (as successor by merger to RPAI), as borrower, entered into the First Amendment (the “First Amendment”) to the Credit Agreement (as defined below) with KeyBank National Association (“KeyBank”), as administrative agent, and the lenders party thereto. The First Amendment amends the Sixth Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of July 8, 2021 (as amended, the “Credit Agreement”), among RPAI, as borrower, KeyBank, as administrative agent, and the lenders from time to time party thereto, which provides for an $850.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Revolving Facility”) with a scheduled maturity date of January 8, 2026 (which maturity date may be extended for up to 2 additional periods of six months at the Operating Partnership’s option, subject to certain conditions).
Under the Credit Agreement, the Operating Partnership has the option to increase the Revolving Facility to an aggregate committed amount of $1.6 billion upon the Operating Partnership’s request, subject to certain conditions, including obtaining commitments from any one or more lenders, whether or not currently party to the Credit Agreement, to provide such increased amounts.
Borrowings under the Revolving Facility bear interest at a rate per annum equal to LIBOR or the alternative base rate plus a margin based on the Operating Partnership’s leverage ratio or credit rating, respectively, plus a facility fee based on the Operating Partnership’s leverage ratio or credit rating, respectively. The Revolving Facility is currently priced on the leverage-based pricing grid. In accordance with the Credit Agreement, the credit spread set forth in the leverage grid resets quarterly based on the Company’s leverage, as calculated at the previous quarter end. The Company may irrevocably elect to convert to the ratings-based pricing grid at any time. As of March 31, 2022, making such an election would have resulted in a lower interest rate; however, the Company has not made the election to convert to the ratings-based pricing grid. The Credit Agreement includes a sustainability metric based on targeted greenhouse gas emission reductions, which results in a reduction of the otherwise applicable interest rate margin by 1 basis point upon achievement of targets set forth therein.
The following table summarizes the key terms of the Revolving Facility:

The Operating Partnership’s ability to borrow under the Credit Agreement is subject to ongoing compliance by the Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries with various restrictive covenants, including with respect to liens, transactions with affiliates, dividends, mergers and asset sales. In addition, the Credit Agreement requires that the Operating Partnership satisfy certain financial covenants, including (i) a maximum leverage ratio; (ii) a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio; (iii) a maximum secured indebtedness ratio; (iv) a maximum unsecured leverage ratio; and (v) a minimum unencumbered interest coverage ratio. As of March 31, 2022, we were in compliance with all such covenants.
As of March 31, 2022, we had letters of credit outstanding which totaled $1.5 million, against which no amounts were advanced as of March 31, 2022.
Unsecured Term Loans
On October 22, 2021, in connection with the Merger, the Operating Partnership (as successor by merger to RPAI) assumed all of RPAI’s outstanding $470.0 million aggregate principal of unsecured term loans (“Unsecured Term Loans”). The Unsecured Term Loans are currently priced on a leverage-based pricing grid. In accordance with the respective term loan agreements, the credit spread set forth in the leverage grid resets quarterly based on the Company’s leverage, as calculated at the previous quarter end. The Company may irrevocably elect to convert to a ratings-based pricing grid at any time. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has not made the election to convert to a ratings-based pricing grid.

$150,000 unsecured term loan due 20267/17/20261.20% – 1.70%0.75% – 1.60%
Under the agreement related to the $120.0 million and $150.0 million term loans, the Operating Partnership has the option to increase each of the term loans to $250.0 million upon the Operating Partnership’s request, subject to certain conditions, including obtaining commitments from any one or more lenders, whether or not currently party to the term loan agreement, to provide such increased amounts. In addition, under the agreement related to the $200.0 million term loan, the Operating Partnership has the option to increase the term loan to $300.0 million upon the Operating Partnership’s request, subject to certain conditions, including obtaining commitments from any one or more lenders, whether or not currently party to the term loan agreement, to provide such increased amounts.
The agreements related to the Unsecured Term Loans assumed in the Merger contain representations, financial and other affirmative and negative covenants and events of default that are substantially similar to those contained in the Credit Agreement. The agreement related to the $150.0 million term loan includes a sustainability metric based on targeted greenhouse gas emission reductions, which results in a reduction of the otherwise applicable interest rate margin by 1 basis point upon achievement of targets set forth therein.
On October 25, 2018, the Operating Partnership entered into a Term Loan Agreement (the “Agreement”) with KeyBank National Association, as Administrative Agent, and the other lenders party thereto, providing for an unsecured term loan facility of up to $250.0 million (the “$250M Term Loan”). The $250M Term Loan ranks pari passu with the Operating Partnership’s existing Revolving Facility and other unsecured indebtedness of the Operating Partnership.
The $250M Term Loan has a scheduled maturity date of October 24, 2025, which maturity date may be extended for up to 3 additional periods of one year at the Operating Partnership’s option, subject to certain conditions.
The Operating Partnership has the option to increase the $250M Term Loan to $300.0 million, subject to certain conditions, including obtaining commitments from any one or more lenders, whether or not currently party to the Agreement, to provide such increased amounts. The Operating Partnership is permitted to prepay the $250M Term Loan in whole or in part, at any time, subject to a prepayment fee if prepaid on or before October 25, 2023.
Debt Issuance Costs
Debt issuance costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the terms of the respective loan agreements. The following amounts of amortization of debt issuance costs are included as a component of “Interest expense” in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income:
Three Months Ended March 31,
($ in thousands)20222021
Amortization of debt issuance costs$650 $578 
Fair Value of Fixed and Variable Rate Debt
As of March 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of fixed rate debt was $2.3 billion compared to the book value of $2.2 billion. The fair value was estimated using Level 2 and 3 inputs with cash flows discounted at current borrowing rates for similar instruments, which ranged from 3.85% to 5.26%. As of March 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of variable rate debt was $886.9 million compared to the book value of $883.8 million. The fair value was estimated using Level 2 and 3 inputs with cash flows discounted at current borrowing rates for similar instruments, which ranged from 1.55% to 3.45%.
NOTE 8. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS, HEDGING ACTIVITIES AND OTHER COMPREHENSIVE INCOME
In order to manage potential future variable interest rate risk, we enter into interest rate derivative agreements from time to time. We do not use interest rate derivative agreements for trading or speculative purposes. The agreements with each of our derivative counterparties provide that, in the event of default on any of our indebtedness, we could also be declared in default on our derivative obligations.
24


As of March 31, 2022, we were party to 12 cash flow derivative agreements with notional amounts totaling $720.0 million, which includes $470.0 million of interest rate swaps assumed in connection with the Merger. These derivative agreements effectively fix the interest rate underlying certain variable rate debt instruments over expiration dates through 2026. Using a weighted average interest rate spread over LIBOR on all variable rate debt resulted in fixing the weighted average interest rate at 3.72%.
As of March 31, 2022, we were also party to 2 fair value derivative agreements with notional amounts totaling $155.0 million that swap a blended fixed rate of 4.52% for a blended floating rate of LIBOR plus 3.70% with an expiration date of September 10, 2025.
In December 2021, we entered into 2 forward-starting interest rate swap contracts with notional amounts totaling $150.0 million that swap a floating rate of compound Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) for a fixed rate of 1.356% with an effective date of June 1, 2022 and an expiration date of June 1, 2032. As of March 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of the forward-starting swaps represented an asset of $10.5 million and is reflected within “Prepaid and other assets” in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
As of March 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of our interest rate derivatives represented an asset of $5.6 million and a liability of $17.8 million, including accrued interest of $1.2 million. The derivative assets are reflected within “Prepaid and other assets” and the derivative liabilities are reflected within “Accounts payable and accrued expenses” in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. As of December 31, 2021, the estimated fair value of our interest rate derivatives represented a liability of $35.7 million, including accrued interest of $1.0 million, which is reflected within “Accounts payable and accrued expenses” in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Amounts reported in accumulated other comprehensive income related to derivatives will be reclassified to earnings over time as the hedged items are recognized in earnings. Approximately $4.1 million and $1.3 million was reclassified as a reduction to earnings during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. As interest payments on our derivatives are made over the next 12 months, we estimate the decrease to interest expense to be $2.2 million, assuming the current LIBOR and SOFR curves.
Unrealized gains and losses on our interest rate derivative agreements are the only components of the change in accumulated other comprehensive loss.
NOTE 9. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY
Distributions
Our Board of Trustees declared a cash distribution of $0.20 per common share and Common Unit for the first quarter of 2022. This distribution was paid on April 15, 2022 to common shareholders and Common Unit holders of record as of April 8, 2022.
At-The-Market Offering Program
On February 23, 2021, the Company and the Operating Partnership entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with each of BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. and Raymond James & Associates, Inc., pursuant to which the Company may sell, from time to time, up to an aggregate sales price of $150.0 million of its common shares of beneficial interest, $0.01 par value per share under an at-the-market offering program (the “ATM Program”). On November 30, 2021, the Company and the Operating Partnership amended the Equity Distribution Agreement to reflect their filing of a shelf registration statement on November 16, 2021 with the SEC. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has not sold any common shares under the ATM Program. The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds, if any, to repay borrowings under its Revolving Facility and other indebtedness and for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The Operating Partnership may also use net proceeds for acquisitions of operating properties and the development or redevelopment of properties, although there are currently no understandings, commitments or agreements to do so.
Share Repurchase Program
In February 2021, the Company’s Board of Trustees approved a share repurchase program, authorizing share repurchases up to an aggregate of $150.0 million (the “Share Repurchase Program”). In February 2022, the Company extended its Share Repurchase Program for an additional year and it will now terminate on February 28, 2023 if not terminated or extended prior
25


to that date. In April 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees authorized a $150.0 million increase to the size of the Share Repurchase Program, authorizing share repurchases up to an aggregate $300.0 million. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has not repurchased any shares under its Share Repurchase Program. The Company intends to fund any future repurchases under the Share Purchase Program with cash on hand or availability under its Revolving Facility, subject to any applicable restrictions. The timing of share repurchases and the number of common shares to be repurchased under the Share Repurchase Program will depend upon prevailing market conditions, regulatory requirements and other factors.
NOTE 10. EARNINGS PER SHARE OR UNIT
Basic earnings per share or unit is calculated based on the weighted average number of common shares or units outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share or unit is determined based on the weighted average number of common shares or units outstanding during the period combined with the incremental average common shares or units that would have been outstanding assuming the conversion of all potentially dilutive common shares or units into common shares or units as of the earliest date possible.
Potentially dilutive securities include (i) outstanding options to acquire common shares; (ii) Limited Partner Units, which may be exchanged for either cash or common shares, at the Parent Company’s option and under certain circumstances; (iii) appreciation-only Long-Term Incentive Plan (“AO LTIP”) units; and (iv) deferred common share units, which may be credited to the personal accounts of non-employee trustees in lieu of compensation paid in cash or the issuance of common shares to such trustees. Limited Partner Units have been omitted from the Parent Company’s denominator for the purpose of computing diluted earnings per share since the effect of including these amounts in the denominator would have no dilutive impact. Weighted average Limited Partner Units outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 were 2.4 million and 2.5 million, respectively.
Due to the net loss allocable to common shareholders and Common Unit holders for the three months ended March 31, 2022, no securities had a dilutive impact for this period.
NOTE 11. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Other Commitments and Contingencies
We are obligated under various completion guarantees with certain lenders and lease agreements with tenants to complete all or portions of a development project and tenant-specific space currently under construction. We believe we currently have sufficient financing in place to fund these projects and expect to do so primarily through borrowings on our Revolving Facility.
In 2017, we provided a repayment guaranty on a $33.8 million construction loan associated with the development of the Embassy Suites at the University of Notre Dame, consistent with our 35% ownership interest. Our portion of the repayment guaranty is limited to $5.9 million and the guaranty’s term is through July 1, 2024, the maturity date of the construction loan. As of March 31, 2022, the outstanding loan balance is $33.6 million, of which our share is $11.8 million. The loan is secured by the hotel.
As of March 31, 2022, we had outstanding letters of credit totaling $1.5 million with no amounts advanced against these instruments.
Legal Proceedings
We are not subject to any material litigation nor, to management’s knowledge, is any material litigation currently threatened against us. We are parties to routine litigation, claims, and administrative proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Management believes that such matters will not have a material adverse impact on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows taken as a whole.
NOTE 12. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
Subsequent to March 31, 2022, we:
closed on the acquisition of a two-tenant building adjacent to MacArthur Crossing, an existing multi-tenant retail property located in the Dallas MSA, for a gross purchase price of $21.9 million;
used the $125.0 million short-term deposit that matured on April 7, 2022 to repay borrowings on the Revolving Facility. See Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements for further details; and
26


repaid a mortgage payable with a principal balance of $11.4 million and a fixed interest rate of 4.65%.
In April 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees authorized a $150.0 million increase to the size of the Share Repurchase Program, authorizing share repurchases up to an aggregate $300.0 million.

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the accompanying historical financial statements and related notes thereto. In this discussion, unless the context suggests otherwise, references to “our Company,” “we,” “us,” and “our” mean Kite Realty Group Trust and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, including Kite Realty Group, L.P.
CAUTIONARY NOTE ABOUT FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, together with other statements and information publicly disseminated by us, contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such statements are based on assumptions and expectations that may not be realized and are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which cannot be predicted with accuracy and some of which might not even be anticipated. Future events and actual results, performance, transactions or achievements, financial or otherwise, may differ materially from the results, performance, transactions or achievements, financial or otherwise, expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.
Currently, one of the most significant factors that could cause actual outcomes to differ significantly from our forward-looking statements is the adverse effect of the current pandemic of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), including possible resurgences, variants and mutations, on the financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance of the Company and its tenants, the real estate market and the global economy and financial markets. Moreover, investors are cautioned to interpret many of the risks identified under the section titled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 as being heightened as a result of the ongoing and numerous adverse effects of COVID-19.
Additional risks, uncertainties and other factors that might cause such differences, some of which could be material, include but are not limited to:
risks associated with the Company’s Merger (defined below) with Retail Properties of America, Inc. (“RPAI”), including the integration of the businesses of the combined company, the ability to achieve expected synergies or cost savings and potential disruptions to the Company’s plans and operations;
national and local economic, business, real estate and other market conditions, particularly in connection with low or negative growth in the U.S. economy as well as economic uncertainty (including the potential effects of inflation);
financing risks, including the availability of, and costs associated with, sources of liquidity;
our ability to refinance, or extend the maturity dates of, our indebtedness;
the level and volatility of interest rates;
the financial stability of tenants;
the competitive environment in which we operate, including potential oversupplies and reduction in demand for rental space;
acquisition, disposition, development and joint venture risks;
property ownership and management risks, including the relative illiquidity of real estate investments, and expenses, vacancies or the inability to rent space on favorable terms or at all;
our ability to maintain our status as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) for U.S. federal income tax purposes;
potential environmental and other liabilities;
impairment in the value of real estate property we own;
the attractiveness of our properties to tenants, the actual and perceived impact of e-commerce on the value of shopping center assets and changing demographics and customer traffic patterns;
28


business continuity disruptions and a deterioration in our tenant’s ability to operate in affected areas or delays in the supply of products or services to us or our tenants from vendors that are needed to operate efficiently, causing costs to rise sharply and inventory to fall;
risks related to our current geographical concentration of our properties in Texas, Florida, New York, Maryland, and North Carolina;
civil unrest, acts of terrorism or war, acts of God, climate change, epidemics, pandemics (including COVID-19), natural disasters and severe weather conditions, including such events that may result in underinsured or uninsured losses or other increased costs and expenses;
changes in laws and government regulations including governmental orders affecting the use of our properties or the ability of our tenants to operate, and the costs of complying with such changed laws and government regulations;
possible short-term or long-term changes in consumer behavior due to COVID-19 and the fear of future pandemics;
our ability to satisfy environmental, social or governance standards set by various constituencies;
insurance costs and coverage;
risks associated with cybersecurity attacks and the loss of confidential information and other business disruptions;
other factors affecting the real estate industry generally; and
other risks identified in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and, from time to time, in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) or in other documents that we publicly disseminate, including, in particular, the section titled “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise these forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Kite Realty Group Trust is a publicly held REIT which, through its majority-owned subsidiary, Kite Realty Group, L.P., owns interests in various operating subsidiaries and joint ventures engaged in the ownership, operation, acquisition, development, and redevelopment of high-quality, open-air shopping centers and mixed-use assets in select markets in the United States. We derive revenues primarily from activities associated with the collection of contractual rents and reimbursement payments from tenants at our properties. Therefore, our operating results depend materially on, among other things, the ability of our tenants to make required lease payments, the health and resilience of the U.S. retail sector, interest rate volatility, job growth and real estate market and overall economic conditions.
As of March 31, 2022, we owned interests in 181 operating retail properties totaling approximately 28.8 million square feet and one office property with 0.3 million square feet. Of the 181 operating retail properties, 11 contain an office component. We also owned seven development projects under construction as of this date.
Merger with RPAI
On October 22, 2021, we completed a merger with RPAI in accordance with the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated July 18, 2021 (the “Merger Agreement”), by and among the Company, its wholly owned subsidiary KRG Oak, LLC (“Merger Sub”) and RPAI, pursuant to which RPAI merged with and into Merger Sub (the “Merger”). Immediately following the closing of the Merger, Merger Sub merged with and into the Operating Partnership so that all of the assets and liabilities of the Company continue to be held at or below the Operating Partnership level. As a result of the Merger, we acquired 100 operating retail properties and five active development projects along with multiple parcels of entitled land for future value creation, creating a top five open-air shopping center REIT. The combined high-quality, open-air portfolio is a mixture of predominantly necessity-based, grocery-anchored neighborhood and community centers, combined with vibrant mixed-use assets. The Merger more than doubled the Company’s presence in high-growth markets that have mild or temperate climates and no or relatively low income taxes, while also introducing and/or enhancing its presence in strategic gateway markets. In addition, the combined company
29


has additional opportunities to further increase shareholder value, including leasing of pandemic-related vacancies, optimizing net operating income (“NOI”) margins, lowering the Company’s cost of capital, and completing select development projects. Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, each outstanding share of RPAI common stock converted into the right to receive 0.623 common shares of the Company plus cash in lieu of fractional Company shares. The Operating Partnership issued an equivalent amount of General Partner Units to the Parent Company.
Impacts on Business from COVID-19
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant adverse impact on many of our tenants and on our business. The effects of COVID-19, including related government restrictions, mandatory quarantines, “shelter in place” orders, border closures, “social distancing” practices, masking requirements and other travel and gathering restrictions and practices, have caused many of our tenants to close stores, reduce hours or significantly limit service, each of which may continue to create headwinds for our tenants. Since we cannot estimate when the containment measures will roll back, end, or be reinstated, we cannot estimate the ultimate operational and financial impact of COVID-19 on our business.
As the domestic economy continues to recover, retailers continue to improve their operations to account for the pandemic, including using open-air centers as convenient shopping destinations and last-mile fulfillment through the use of in-store pickup, curbside pickup, and shipping from stores. Historically, economic indicators such as GDP growth, consumer confidence and employment have been correlated with demand for certain of our tenants’ products and services. If an economic recession returns, it could increase the number of our tenants that are unable to meet their lease obligations to us and could limit the demand for our space from new tenants.
We expect the significance of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the extent of its effects on our business, financial performance and condition, operating results and cash flows and the economic slowdown, to be dictated by, among other things, the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, including possible resurgences and mutations, the success of efforts to contain it, the efficacy of vaccines, including against variants of COVID-19, public adoption rates of vaccines and the impact of other actions taken in response to the pandemic. These uncertainties make it difficult to predict operating results for our business; therefore, there can be no assurances that we will not experience further declines in revenues, net income, Funds From Operations (“FFO”) or other operating metrics, which could be material.
Inflation
Most of our leases contain provisions designed to mitigate the adverse impact of inflation, including stated rent increases and requirements for tenants to pay a share of operating expenses, including common area maintenance, real estate taxes, insurance or other operating expenses related to the maintenance of our properties, including escalation clauses in certain leases. Most of our leases also include clauses that allow us to collect additional rent based on a percentage of tenants’ gross sales over stated thresholds, which sales generally increase as prices rise. In addition, we believe that the rental rates in many of our leases are below current market rates for comparable space and that upon renewal, such rates may be increased to be inline with current rates, which may offset certain inflationary expense pressures. We also periodically evaluate our exposure to interest rate fluctuations and enter into interest rate protection agreements to mitigate the impact of changes in interest rates on our variable rate debt.
Operating Activity
During the first quarter of 2022, we executed new and renewal leases on 182 individual spaces totaling 1,053,963 square feet (16.1% cash leasing spread on 105 comparable leases). New leases were signed on 72 individual spaces for 326,957 square feet of gross leasable area (“GLA”) (58.7% cash leasing spread on 26 comparable leases), while renewal leases were signed on 110 individual spaces for 727,006 square feet of GLA (8.9% cash leasing spread on 79 comparable leases). Comparable new and renewal leases are defined as those for which the space was occupied by a tenant within the last 12 months.
Results of Operations
The comparability of results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 is affected by our Merger with RPAI that was completed on October 22, 2021, in which we acquired 100 operating retail properties as well as five active development projects, along with our development, redevelopment, and operating property acquisition and disposition activities during these periods. Therefore, we believe it is most useful to review the comparisons of our results of operations for these periods in conjunction with the discussion of our activities during those periods, which is set forth below.

Properties acquired in the Merger with RPAI120,848 
Properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 and other(1,269)
Total$121,968 
The net decrease of $1.3 million in rental income for properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 is primarily due to a decrease in lease termination income of $1.0 million and lower tenant reimbursements due to lower recoverable real estate taxes. These variances were partially offset by higher base minimum rent of $0.5 million due to improved tenant performance and higher overage rent of $0.4 million. The occupancy of the fully operational properties increased from 88.4% for 2021 to 89.5% for 2022.
Other property-related revenue primarily consists of parking revenues, gains on the sale of land and other miscellaneous activity. This revenue increased by $1.2 million primarily as a result of an increase in parking revenue of $0.4 million and specialty income of $1.0 million, partially offset by $0.3 million of gains on sales of undepreciated assets recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2021. No such gain was recognized during the three months ended March 31, 2022.
We recorded fee income of $2.3 million and $0.4 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively, from property management and development services provided to third parties and unconsolidated joint ventures.

The increase in fee income is primarily related to development fee services for the development of a corporate campus for Republic Airways.
Property operating expenses increased $15.7 million, or 152.5%, due to the following:

Properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 and other458 
Total$15,659 
The net increase of $0.5 million in property operating expenses for properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 is primarily due to increases in repairs and maintenance expense of $0.9 million and insurance expense of $0.4 million, partially offset by a reduction in non-recoverable operating expenses. As a percentage of revenue, property operating expenses decreased from 14.8% to 13.3% due to an increase in revenue in 2022.
Real estate taxes increased $17.5 million, or 185.7%, due to the following:

2021 to 2022

Properties acquired in the Merger with RPAI18,204 
Properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 and other(1,166)
Total$17,459 
The net decrease of $1.2 million in real estate taxes for properties that were fully operational during 2021 and 2022 is primarily due to successful real estate tax appeals at certain properties in the portfolio, most notably for certain of our Texas properties. The majority of real estate tax expense is recoverable from tenants and such recovery is reflected in rental income.
General, administrative and other expenses increased $6.0 million, or 82.9%. This increase is primarily due to incremental head count as part of the Merger and higher share-based compensation expense.
The Company incurred $0.9 million of merger and acquisition costs related to the Merger with RPAI during the three months ended March 31, 2022. These costs primarily consist of professional fees and technology costs.
Depreciation and amortization expense increased $90.9 million, or 296.6%, primarily as a result of the Merger with RPAI as detailed below:
($ in thousands)Net change
2021 to 2022

Properties acquired in the Merger with RPAI90,990 
Properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 and other(3,808)
Total$90,870 
The net decrease of $3.8 million in depreciation and amortization at properties fully operational during 2021 and 2022 is primarily due to the timing of additions and disposals at operating properties.
Interest expense increased $13.3 million, or 108.4%, primarily due to interest costs of $13.5 million related to debt assumed in conjunction with the Merger.
Net Operating Income and Same Property Net Operating Income
We use property NOI, a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the performance of our properties. We define NOI as income from our real estate, including lease termination fees received from tenants, less our property operating expenses. NOI excludes amortization of capitalized tenant improvement costs and leasing commissions and certain corporate level expenses,
33


including merger and acquisition costs. We believe that NOI is helpful to investors as a measure of our operating performance because it excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of our operating performance, such as depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and impairment, if any.
We also use same property NOI (“Same Property NOI”), a non-GAAP financial measure, to evaluate the performance of our properties. Same Property NOI is net income excluding properties that have not been owned for the full periods presented. However, due to the size of the RPAI portfolio acquired in the Merger with RPAI, which closed in October 2021, the legacy RPAI properties have been deemed to qualify for the same property pool beginning in 2022 if they had a full first quarter of operations in 2021 within the legacy RPAI portfolio prior to the Merger. Same Property NOI also excludes (i) net gains from outlot sales, (ii) straight-line rent revenue, (iii) lease termination income in excess of lost rent, (iv) amortization of lease intangibles, and (v) significant prior period expense recoveries and adjustments, if any. When the Company receives payments in excess of any accounts receivable for terminating a lease, Same Property NOI will include such excess payments as monthly rent until the earlier of the expiration of 12 months or the start date of a replacement tenant. The Company believes that Same Property NOI is helpful to investors as a measure of our operating performance because it includes only the NOI of properties that have been owned for the full periods presented. The Company believes such presentation eliminates disparities in net income due to the acquisition or disposition of properties during the particular periods presented and thus provides a more consistent metric for the comparison of our properties. Same Property NOI includes the results of properties that have been owned for the entire current and prior year reporting periods. In order to provide meaningful comparative information across periods that, in some cases, predate the Merger, all information regarding the performance of the same property pool is presented as though the Merger was consummated on January 1, 2021 (i.e., as though the properties owned by RPAI prior to the Merger that are included in our same property pool had been owned by the Company for the entirety of all comparison periods for which same property pool information is presented).
NOI and Same Property NOI should not, however, be considered as alternatives to net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) as indicators of our financial performance. Our computation of NOI and Same Property NOI may differ from the methodology used by other REITs, and therefore may not be comparable to such other REITs.
When evaluating the properties that are included in the same property pool, we have established specific criteria for determining the inclusion of properties acquired or those recently under development. An acquired property is included in the same property pool when there is a full quarter of operations in both years subsequent to the acquisition date. The properties acquired in the Merger with RPAI qualify for the same property pool beginning in 2022 if they had a full first quarter of operations in 2021 within the legacy RPAI portfolio prior to the Merger. Development and redevelopment properties are included in the same property pool four full quarters after the properties have been transferred to the operating portfolio. A redevelopment property is first excluded from the same property pool when the execution of a redevelopment plan is likely and we (a) begin recapturing space from tenants or (b) the contemplated plan significantly impacts the operations of the property. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the same property pool excludes (i) Glendale Town Center, which was reclassified from active redevelopment into our operating portfolio in December 2021, (ii) seven active development and redevelopment projects, (iii) Arcadia Village and Pebble Marketplace, which were acquired subsequent to January 1, 2021, and (iv) office properties.

Our Same Property NOI increased 5.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to the same period of the prior year primarily due to improved collection activity and tenant performance resulting in a reduction in bad debt expense in 2022 compared to 2021, which was more heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funds From Operations
FFO is a widely used performance measure for real estate companies and is provided here as a supplemental measure of operating performance. We calculate FFO, a non-GAAP financial measure, in accordance with the best practices described in the April 2002 National Policy Bulletin of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), as restated in 2018. The NAREIT white paper defines FFO as net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP), excluding depreciation and amortization related to real estate, gains and losses from the sale of certain real estate assets, gains and losses from change in control, and impairment write-downs of certain real estate assets and investments in entities when the impairment is directly attributable to decreases in the value of depreciable real estate held by the entity.
Considering the nature of our business as a real estate owner and operator, the Company believes that FFO is helpful to investors in measuring our operational performance because it excludes various items included in net income that do not relate to or are not indicative of our operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of depreciated property and depreciation and amortization, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. FFO excludes the 2021 gain on sale of the ground lease portfolios as these sales were part of our capital strategy distinct from our ongoing operating strategy of selling individual land parcels from time to time. FFO (a) should not be considered as an alternative to net income (calculated in accordance with GAAP) for the purpose of measuring our financial performance, (b) is not an alternative to cash flow from operating activities (calculated in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity, and (c) is not indicative of funds available to satisfy our cash needs, including our ability to make distributions. Our
35


computation of FFO may not be comparable to FFO reported by other REITs that do not define the term in accordance with the current NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do.
From time to time, the Company may report or provide guidance with respect to “NAREIT FFO as adjusted,” which removes the impact of certain non-recurring and non-operating transactions or other items the Company does not consider to be representative of its core operating results including, without limitation, gains or losses associated with the early extinguishment of debt, gains or losses associated with litigation involving the Company that is not in the normal course of business, merger and acquisition costs, the impact on earnings from employee severance, the excess of redemption value over carrying value of preferred stock redemption, and the impact of prior period bad debt or the collection of accounts receivable previously written off (“prior period collection impact”), which are not otherwise adjusted in the Company’s calculation of FFO.
Our calculations of FFO(1) and reconciliation to consolidated net income and FFO, as adjusted, for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 (unaudited) are as follows:

Earnings before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA)
We define EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, as net income before interest expense, income tax expense of the taxable REIT subsidiary, and depreciation and amortization. For informational purposes, we also provide Adjusted EBITDA, which we define as EBITDA less (i) EBITDA from unconsolidated entities, (ii) gains on sales of operating properties or impairment charges, (iii) merger and acquisition costs, (iv) other income and expense, (v) noncontrolling interest EBITDA, and (vi) other non-recurring activity or items impacting comparability from period to period. Annualized Adjusted EBITDA is Adjusted EBITDA for the most recent quarter multiplied by four. Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA is our share of net debt divided by Annualized Adjusted EBITDA. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Annualized Adjusted EBITDA and Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA, as calculated by us, are not comparable to EBITDA and EBITDA-related measures reported by other REITs that do not define EBITDA and EBITDA-related measures exactly as we do. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Annualized Adjusted EBITDA do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered alternatives to net income as an indicator of performance or as alternatives to cash flows from operating activities as an indicator of liquidity.
Considering the nature of our business as a real estate owner and operator, we believe that EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and the ratio of Net Debt to Adjusted EBITDA are helpful to investors in measuring our operational performance because they exclude various items included in net income that do not relate to, or are not indicative of, our operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of depreciated property and depreciation and amortization, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. For informational purposes, we also provide Annualized Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted as described above. We believe this supplemental information provides a meaningful measure of our operating performance. We believe presenting EBITDA and the related measures in this manner allows investors and other interested parties to form a more meaningful assessment of our operating results.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Overview
Our primary finance and capital strategy is to maintain a strong balance sheet with sufficient flexibility to fund our operating and investment activities in a cost-effective manner. We consider a number of factors when evaluating our level of indebtedness and when making decisions regarding additional borrowings or equity offerings, including the interest or dividend rate, the maturity date and the Company’s debt maturity ladder, the impact of financial metrics such as overall Company leverage levels and coverage ratios, and the Company’s ability to generate cash flow to cover debt service. We will continue to monitor the capital markets and may consider raising additional capital through the issuance of our common or preferred shares, unsecured debt securities, or other securities.
One of the benefits of the Merger was a strengthened balance sheet to provide the Company with increased liquidity, a well-staggered debt maturity ladder, and an appropriately sized development pipeline. As part of the Merger, we assumed an $850.0 million revolving line of credit, of which the borrowing capacity was $713.5 million as of March 31, 2022, along with other indebtedness.
As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $74.3 million in cash on hand, $7.8 million in restricted cash and escrow deposits, $713.5 million of remaining availability under our Revolving Facility, $125.0 million of short-term deposits, and $83.5 million of debt maturities for the remainder of 2022. Subsequent to March 31, 2022, we used the $125.0 million short-term deposit that matured on April 7, 2022 to repay borrowings on our revolving line of credit. We believe we will have adequate liquidity over the next 12 months and beyond to operate our business and meet our cash requirements. However, because we do not know the ultimate severity and length of the COVID-19 pandemic or the short- or long-term impact it may have on consumer behavior, and thus cannot predict the impact it will have on our tenants and on the debt and equity capital markets, we cannot estimate the ultimate impact it will have on our liquidity and capital resources.

Our Principal Capital Resources  
For a discussion of cash generated from operations, see “Cash Flows” beginning on page 39. In addition to cash generated from operations, our other principal capital resources are discussed below.
Over the last several years, we have made substantial progress in enhancing our liquidity position and reducing our leverage and borrowing costs. We continue to focus on a balanced approach to growth and staggering debt maturities in order to retain our financial flexibility.
As of March 31, 2022, we had approximately $713.5 million available under our Revolving Facility for future borrowings. We also had $199.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term deposits as of March 31, 2022.
We were in compliance with all applicable financial covenants under our Revolving Facility, unsecured term loans and senior unsecured notes as of March 31, 2022.
On November 16, 2021, the Company filed with the SEC a shelf registration statement on Form S-3, which is effective for a term of three years, relating to the offer and sale, from time to time, of an indeterminate amount of equity and debt securities. Equity securities may be offered and sold by the Parent Company, and the net proceeds of any such offerings would be contributed to the Operating Partnership in exchange for additional General Partner Units. Debt securities may be offered and sold by the Operating Partnership with the Operating Partnership receiving the proceeds. From time to time, we may issue securities under this shelf registration statement for general corporate purposes, which may include acquisitions of additional properties, repayment of outstanding indebtedness, capital expenditures, the expansion, redevelopment, and/or improvement of properties in our portfolio, working capital and other general purposes.
On February 23, 2021, the Company and the Operating Partnership entered into an Equity Distribution Agreement (the “Equity Distribution Agreement”) with each of BofA Securities, Inc., Citigroup Global Markets Inc., KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc. and Raymond James & Associates, Inc., pursuant to which the Company may sell, from time to time, up to an aggregate sales price of $150.0 million of its common shares of beneficial interest, $0.01 par value per share under an at-the-market offering program (the “ATM Program”). On November 30, 2021, the Company and the Operating Partnership amended the Equity Distribution Agreement to reflect the filing by the Company and the Operating Partnership of a shelf registration statement on November 16, 2021 with the SEC. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has not sold any common shares under the ATM Program. The Operating Partnership intends to use the net proceeds, if any, to repay borrowings under its Revolving Facility and other indebtedness and for working capital and other general corporate purposes. The Operating Partnership may also use the net proceeds for acquisitions of operating properties and the development or redevelopment of properties, although there are currently no understandings, commitments or agreements to do so.
In the future, we will continue to monitor the capital markets and may consider raising additional capital through the issuance of our common shares, preferred shares or other securities. We may also raise capital by disposing of properties, land parcels or other assets that are no longer core components of our growth strategy. The sale price may differ from our carrying value at the time of sale.
Our Principal Liquidity Needs
Short-Term Liquidity Needs
Near-Term Debt Maturities. As of March 31, 2022, we had $256.9 million of secured debt scheduled to mature prior to March 31, 2023, excluding scheduled monthly principal payments. We believe we have sufficient liquidity to repay this obligation from cash on hand, short-term deposits and, if needed, borrowings on our Revolving Facility.
Other Short-Term Liquidity Needs. The requirements for qualifying as a REIT and for a tax deduction for some or all of the dividends paid to shareholders necessitate that we distribute at least 90% of our taxable income on an annual basis. Such requirements cause us to have substantial liquidity needs over both the short and long term. Our short-term liquidity needs consist primarily of funds necessary to pay operating expenses associated with our operating properties, scheduled interest payments of approximately $85.0 million and scheduled principal payments on our debt of approximately $2.6 million for the remainder of 2022, expected dividend payments to our common shareholders and Common Unit holders, and recurring capital expenditures.
In February 2022, our Board of Trustees declared a cash distribution of $0.20 per common share and Common Unit for the first quarter of 2022. This distribution was paid on April 15, 2022 to common shareholders and Common Unit holders of record
38


as of April 8, 2022. Future distributions, if any, are at the discretion of the Board of Trustees, who will continue to evaluate our sources and uses of capital, liquidity position, operating fundamentals, maintenance of our REIT qualification and other factors they may deem relevant.
Other short-term liquidity needs include expenditures for tenant improvements, external leasing commissions and recurring capital expenditures. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, we incurred $3.7 million for recurring capital expenditures on operating properties, $13.0 million for tenant improvements and external leasing commissions, which includes costs to re-lease anchor space at our operating properties related to tenants open and operating as of March 31, 2022 (excluding development and redevelopment properties). We currently anticipate incurring approximately $100 million of additional major tenant improvement costs related to executed leases for space that is currently vacant at a number of our operating properties over the next 12 to 18 months. We believe we have the ability to fund these costs through cash flow from operations or by borrowing on the Revolving Facility.
As of March 31, 2022, we had seven development projects under construction, including five projects assumed in the Merger with RPAI. Total estimated costs for these projects are $176.1 million, of which our share is estimated to be $112.2 million. As of March 31, 2022, we have incurred $21.0 million of these costs. We anticipate incurring the majority of the remaining costs for these projects over the next 24 months and believe we have the ability to fund these projects through cash flow from operations or by borrowing on the Revolving Facility.
Share Repurchase Program
In February 2021, the Company’s Board of Trustees approved a share repurchase program, authorizing share repurchases up to an aggregate of $150.0 million (the “Share Repurchase Program”). In February 2022, the Company extended its Share Repurchase Program for an additional year and it will now terminate on February 28, 2023, if not terminated or extended prior to that date. In April 2022, the Company’s Board of Trustees authorized a $150.0 million increase to the size of the Share Repurchase Program, authorizing share repurchases up to an aggregate $300.0 million. As of March 31, 2022, the Company has not repurchased any shares under its Share Repurchase Program. The Company intends to fund any future repurchases under the Share Purchase Program with cash on hand or availability under the Revolving Facility, subject to any applicable restrictions. The timing of share repurchases and the number of common shares to be repurchased under the Share Repurchase Program will depend upon prevailing market conditions, regulatory requirements and other factors.
Long-Term Liquidity Needs
Our long-term liquidity needs consist primarily of funds necessary to pay for any new development projects, redevelopment of existing properties, non-recurring capital expenditures, acquisitions of properties, payment of indebtedness at maturity and obligations under ground leases.
Selective Acquisitions, Developments and Joint Ventures. We may selectively pursue the acquisition, development and redevelopment of other properties, which would require additional capital. It is unlikely that we would have sufficient funds on hand to meet these long-term capital requirements. We would have to satisfy these needs through additional borrowings, sales of common or preferred shares, issuance of Operating Partnership units, cash generated through property dispositions and/or participation in joint venture arrangements. We cannot be certain that we would have access to these sources of capital on satisfactory terms, if at all, to fund our long-term liquidity requirements. We evaluate all future opportunities against pre-established criteria including, but not limited to, location, demographics, expected return, tenant credit quality, tenant relationships, and amount of existing retail space. Our ability to access the capital markets will be dependent on a number of factors, including general capital market conditions.
Potential Debt Repurchase. We may from time to time, depending on market conditions and prices, contractual restrictions, our financial liquidity and other factors, seek to repurchase our senior unsecured notes maturing at various dates through September 2030 in open market transactions, by tender offer or otherwise, as market conditions warrant.
Commitments under Ground Leases. We are obligated under 12 ground leases for approximately 98 acres of land as of March 31, 2022. Most of these ground leases require fixed annual rent payments and the expiration dates of the remaining initial terms of these ground leases range from 2023 to 2092.

Capital Expenditures on Consolidated Properties
The following table summarizes cash capital expenditures for our development and redevelopment projects and other capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2022:
 
($ in thousands)
Three Months Ended March 31, 2022
Active development and redevelopment projects$12,029 
Recurring operating capital expenditures (primarily tenant improvements) and other11,723 
Total$23,752 
We capitalize certain indirect costs such as interest, payroll, and other general and administrative costs related to these development activities. If we had experienced a 10% reduction in development and redevelopment activities, without a corresponding decrease in indirect project costs, we would have recorded additional expense of $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Debt Maturities

Total  $3,179,118 
Failure to comply with the obligations under our debt agreements (including payment obligations) could cause an event of default under such debt, which, among other things, could result in the loss of title to the assets securing the debt, acceleration of the payment of all principal and interest and/or termination of the agreements, or exposure to the risk of foreclosure. In addition, certain of our variable rate loans contain cross-default provisions that provide that a violation by us of any financial covenant set forth in our Revolving Facility will constitute an “Event of Default” under the loans, which could allow the lenders to accelerate the amounts due under our debt agreements if we fail to satisfy these financial covenants. See “Item 1A. Risk Factors – Risks Related to Our Operations” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for more information related to the risks associated with our indebtedness.
Impact of Changes in Credit Ratings on Our Liquidity
We have received investment grade corporate credit ratings from three nationally recognized credit rating agencies. These ratings did not change as of March 31, 2022.
In the future, the ratings could change based upon, among other things, the impact that prevailing economic conditions may have on our results of operations and financial condition. Credit rating reductions by one or more rating agencies could also adversely affect our access to funding sources, the cost and other terms of obtaining funding, as well as our overall financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Cash Flows
As of March 31, 2022, we had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $82.2 million. We may be subject to concentrations of credit risk with regard to our cash and cash equivalents. We place our cash and short-term investments with highly rated financial institutions. While we attempt to limit our exposure at any point in time, occasionally such cash and investments may temporarily be in excess of FDIC and SIPC insurance limits. We also maintain certain compensating balances
40


in several financial institutions in support of borrowings from those institutions. Such compensating balances were not material to the consolidated balance sheets.
Comparison of the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022 to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021
Cash provided by operating activities was $49.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and $31.3 million for the same period of 2021. The cash flows were positively impacted by the Merger, which generated incremental operating income, along with improved collection activity including previously deferred rent from the COVID-19 pandemic. This improvement was partially offset by costs paid as part of the Merger along with higher interest costs related to the debt assumed in the Merger.
Cash used in investing activities was $62.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to cash provided by investing activities of $33.9 million for the same period of 2021. Highlights of significant cash sources and uses in investing activities are as follows:
We acquired Pebble Marketplace and deposited funds for the acquisition of a two-tenant building adjacent to MacArthur Crossing totaling $44.3 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022;
We received net proceeds of $39.9 million related to the sale of 16 ground leases during the three months ended March 31, 2021; and
Capital expenditures increased by $15.9 million, partially offset by a change in construction payables of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Cash used in financing activities was $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to cash provided by financing activities of $120.8 million for the same period of 2021. Highlights of significant cash sources and uses in financing activities are as follows:
We borrowed $80.0 million on the Revolving Facility and used a portion of the proceeds to repay $42.2 million of mortgage debt during the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to $25.6 million of debt repayments during the three months ended March 31, 2021;
We made distributions to common shareholders and holders of common partnership interests in the Operating Partnership of $42.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 compared to distributions of $13.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021; and
In March 2021, we issued $175.0 million of exchangeable senior notes in a private placement offering to fund a portion of our 2022 debt maturities and other borrowings. In connection with this issuance, we incurred transaction costs of $4.9 million and purchased capped calls for $9.8 million.
Critical Accounting Estimates
We based the discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. There were no changes made by management to the critical accounting policies in the three months ended March 31, 2022. We discuss the most critical estimates in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed with the SEC on February 28, 2022.
ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
Market Risk Related to Fixed and Variable Rate Debt
We had $3.2 billion of outstanding consolidated indebtedness as of March 31, 2022 (inclusive of net unamortized debt discounts, premiums and issuance costs of $49.1 million). As of March 31, 2022, we were party to various consolidated interest rate hedge agreements totaling $875.0 million with maturities over various terms through 2026. Reflecting the effects of these hedge agreements, our fixed and variable rate debt would have been $2.8 billion (90%) and $318.9 million (10%), respectively, of our total consolidated indebtedness as of March 31, 2022.
41


As of March 31, 2022, we had $256.9 million of fixed rate debt scheduled to mature within the next twelve months. A 100-basis point change in interest rates would not materially impact the annual cash flows associated with this debt as we expect to repay this debt using cash on hand. A 100-basis point change in interest rates on our unhedged variable rate debt as of March 31, 2022 would change our annual cash flow by $3.2 million. Based upon the terms of our variable rate debt, we are most vulnerable to a change in short-term LIBOR interest rates.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
We are not subject to any material litigation nor, to management’s knowledge, is any material litigation currently threatened against us. We are parties to routine litigation, claims, and administrative proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business. Management believes that such matters will not have a material adverse impact on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows taken as a whole.
As previously disclosed in our joint proxy statement/prospectus, beginning on August 27, 2021, two purported RPAI stockholders filed substantially similar complaints against RPAI and the members of the RPAI board of directors (the “RPAI Board”) in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. One of these complaints also named Kite Realty and Merger Sub as defendants. The complaints were captioned as follows: Wang v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 1:21-cv-07237 (S.D.N.Y. filed August 27, 2021); and Hopkins v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 1:21-cv-07324 (S.D.N.Y. filed August 31, 2021). The complaints variously asserted, among other things, claims under Section 14(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and Rule 14a-9 promulgated thereunder against RPAI and the members of the RPAI Board and claims under Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act against the members of the RPAI Board (and, in one case, Kite Realty and Merger Sub) for allegedly causing a materially incomplete and misleading registration statement on Form S-4 to be filed on August 23, 2021 with the SEC. Four additional lawsuits were filed against RPAI and the members of the RPAI Board between September 14, 2021 and October 8, 2021 under the captions Callebs v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 1:21-cv-07593 (S.D.N.Y. filed September 10, 2021); Sheridan v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 1:21-cv-04066-SCJ (N.D.Ga. filed October 1, 2021); Whitfield v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 2:21-cv-04390 (E.D.Pa. filed October 6, 2021); and Reinhardt v. Retail Properties of America, Inc. et al., No. 1:21-cv-04187 (N.D.Ga. filed October 8, 2021), which were substantially similar to the other two complaints. Also, on September 15, 2021, a purported Kite Realty shareholder filed a complaint against Kite Realty and the members of the Kite Realty board of trustees in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, captioned as follows: Gentry v. Kite Realty Group Trust et al., No. 1:21-cv-05142 (E.D.N.Y. filed September 15, 2021). The complaint asserted substantially similar claims under Sections 14(a) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 14a-9 as the other complaints against RPAI and the RPAI Board. Plaintiffs sought, among other things, to enjoin or rescind the Merger, an award of damages in the event the Merger was consummated, and an award of costs and attorneys’ fees. Each of these cases were voluntarily dismissed between December 2021 and February 2022.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
There have been no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in response to Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 filed on February 28, 2022.
ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS
Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities
During the three months ended March 31, 2022, certain of our employees surrendered shares owned by them to satisfy their statutory minimum U.S. federal and state tax obligations associated with the vesting of restricted common shares of beneficial interest under the Company’s 2013 Equity Incentive Plan. These shares were repurchased by the Company.
