Non-GAAP Measures
FFO is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure used as a standard in the real estate industry and is a widely accepted measure of real estate investment trust ("REIT") performance. Management believes that both FFO and Operating FFO (as further described below) provide additional indicators of the financial performance of a REIT. The Company also believes that FFO and Operating FFO more appropriately measure the core operations of the Company and provide benchmarks to its peer group. FFO and Operating FFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP, are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash needs and should not be considered as alternatives to net income computed in accordance with GAAP as indicators of the Company's operating performance or as alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity. 

FFO is generally defined and calculated by the Company as net income (loss), adjusted to exclude:  (i) preferred share dividends, (ii) gains and losses from disposition of depreciable real estate property and related investments, which are presented net of taxes, (iii) impairment charges on depreciable real estate property and related investments and (iv) certain non-cash items. These non-cash items principally include real property depreciation and amortization of intangibles, equity income (loss) from joint ventures and equity income (loss) from non-controlling interests and adding the Company's proportionate share of FFO from its unconsolidated joint ventures and non-controlling interests, determined on a consistent basis. The Company's calculation of FFO is consistent with the NAREIT definition. The Company calculates Operating FFO by excluding certain non-operating charges and gains. Operating FFO is useful to investors as the Company removes non-comparable charges and gains to analyze the results of its operations and assess performance of the core operating real estate portfolio. Other real estate companies may calculate FFO and Operating FFO in a different manner. 

The reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure of net income is as follows ($ in millions):



(Per Share – Diluted)

Net Income Common Shareholders

$54 - $64 

 $0.15 - $0.17 

Depreciation and amortization of real estate

330 - 335 

     0.90 - 0.91 

Equity in net income of JVs

  (8) - (9)



27 - 30 

0.07- 0.08 


403 - 420 

1.10 - 1.14 

Debt extinguishment costs



Operating FFO

$411 - $429 

 $1.12 - $1.16
