We are creating substantial value throughout the portfolio, as demonstrated by our recent sale of The Shoppes at Knollwood. This value creation will become increasingly evident as we continue to execute on our business plan.”

Financial Results for the Three Months Ended December 31, 2014

Core FFO for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $0.46 per diluted share, as compared to $0.46 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Core FFO grew by 16.9% to $27.0 million from $23.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to December 31, 2013. The growth is due to an increase in Same Property Core NOI, along with the impact of the properties that were acquired in 2013 and 2014, partially offset by additional interest expense from properties acquired and higher general and administrative expense.

Core NOI for the three months ended December 31, 2014 was $53.3 million as compared to $44.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. On a Same Property basis, excluding lease termination income of approximately $0.8 million, Same Property Core NOI, as adjusted, increased by 4.6% to $36.6 million from $35.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to December 31, 2013.

Net loss attributable to Rouse Properties Inc. was $(12.6) million or $(0.22) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2014 compared to a net loss of $(24.7) million, or $(0.50) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2013. Net loss attributable to Rouse Properties Inc. included provision for impairment during the three months ended December 31, 2014 of $5.3 million on Steeplegate Mall and Collin Creek Mall compared to a provision for impairment of $15.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The change in net loss was primarily due to the reduction in provision for impairment and higher revenue due to acquisitions and portfolio occupancy increases, offset by higher depreciation and amortization expense and interest expense primarily resulting from the acquisitions.

Financial Results for the Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2014

Core FFO for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $94.5 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, compared to $77.5 million, or $1.54 per diluted share for the year ended December 31, 2013. Core FFO per share increased 6.5% resulting from an increase in Same Property Core NOI as well as an increase from the properties that were acquired. This was partially offset by a higher share count resulting from the January 2014 equity issuance, additional interest expense from properties acquired and higher general and administrative expense.

Core NOI was $189.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, compared to $161.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. On a Same Property basis, excluding lease termination income of approximately $2.2 million, Same Property Core NOI, as adjusted, increased by 3.0% to $131.4 million from $127.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2014 compared to December 31, 2013.

Net loss attributable to Rouse Properties Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $(51.8) million or $(0.90) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(54.7) million, or $(1.11) per basic and diluted share in the prior year period. The change in net loss was primarily due to an increase in income from the Same Property portfolio and acquisitions, offset by higher depreciation and amortization expense, interest expense and general and administrative expense. The year ended December 31, 2013 includes a gain on early extinguishment of debt of $14.0 million on a property disposition.

Financings

During the three months ended December 31, 2014, the Company obtained a $46.5 million first mortgage loan secured by Bayshore Mall in Eureka, California. The loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 3.96%, matures in November 2024, is interest only for the first three years and amortizes on a 30 year schedule thereafter.

During the twelve months ended December 31, 2014, the Company refinanced two properties, with ten year fixed rate loans totaling $116.5 million. The Company paid off two fixed rate loans totaling $82.5 million. Together these transactions generated approximately $34.0 million of net proceeds. The Company also obtained, at share, $146.7 million of fixed rate debt associated with two of our acquisitions.

Acquisitions

During the year ended December 31, 2014, the Company acquired interests in two retail properties totaling 1.7 million square feet with a gross value of $230.8 million. Bel Air Mall was acquired in May 2014 for a total purchase price of $131.9 million; the Company owns a 100% interest. In August 2014, the Company acquired a 51% controlling interest in a joint venture partnership to own and operate The Mall at Barnes Crossing for $50.4 million with the option to purchase the remaining 49% at a later date.

Subsequent Events

In January 2015, the Company sold The Shoppes at Knollwood (formerly Knollwood Mall) in St. Louis Park, MN, for gross proceeds of $106.7 million. The mortgage debt balance of $35.1 million was defeased simultaneously with the sale of the property. Net proceeds of $54.7 million were available for general corporate purposes, including acquisitions and ongoing capital investments within the existing portfolio.

In January 2015, the Company acquired Mt. Shasta Mall located in Redding, CA, for a total purchase price of approximately $49.0 million. The acquisition was funded with proceeds from the sale of The Shoppes at Knollwood and the Company obtained a new $31.9 million non-recourse mortgage loan. The loan bears interest at 4.19%, matures in March 2025, is interest only for the first three years and amortizes on a 30 year schedule thereafter.

In February 2015, the Company paid off the remaining mortgage loan balance of $10.4 million on Washington Park Mall.

Vista Ridge Mall, previously designated as a special consideration asset, was transferred to special servicing in February 2015.

Common Share Dividend

On February 26, 2015, the Company's Board of Directors declared a common stock dividend of $0.18 per share payable on April 30, 2015 to stockholders of record on April 15, 2015, representing a 5.9% increase per share from the prior quarterly dividend. The Company's objective is to continue to grow the dividend over time and the Board will continue to evaluate the dividend policy as the Company's repositioning and acquisition plans continue to take effect.

Annual Meeting

The Company's Annual Stockholders Meeting will take place on May 8, 2015 at 2:00 PM at 787 Third Ave., New York, New York.

2015 Guidance

Based on management's expectation as of the date of this release, the Company is providing initial guidance for 2015 Core FFO in the range of $1.73 to $1.77 per diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2015. Full year guidance assumes the following: Same Property(1) Core NOI growth of 2.5% to 3.75%, general and administrative expense of $25.3 million to $25.8 million, and interest expense of $64.7 million to $65.2 million. The guidance presented does not include the effects of property acquisitions, dispositions, or capital transaction activity completed subsequent to December 31, 2014, except those previously announced and completed, and other mortgage refinancings to be completed in the ordinary course of business.

A reconciliation of the range of estimated diluted net income per share to estimated Core FFO per share for 2015 is as follows:

    For the year ending
December 31, 2015
Low     High
GAAP expected net income per share $ 0.53       $ 0.57

Forward Looking Statements

Certain matters within this press release are discussed using forward-looking language as specified in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and, as such, may involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results or performance to differ from those projected in the forward-looking statement. These forward-looking statements may include statements related to the Company's ability to outperform the ongoing recovery of the Retail and REIT industry and the markets in which the Company's mall properties are located, the Company's ability to generate internal and external growth, the Company's ability to identify and complete the acquisition of properties in new markets, the Company's ability to complete redevelopment projects and the Company's ability to increase margins, including Net Operating Income. For a description of factors that may cause the Company's actual results or performance to differ from its forward-looking statements, please review the information under the heading “Risk Factors” included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and other documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non GAAP Financial Measures

The Company makes reference to net operating income (“NOI”) and funds from operations (“FFO”). NOI is defined as operating revenues (minimum rents, including lease termination fees, tenant recoveries, overage rents, and other income) less property and related expenses (property operating expenses, real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance, marketing, and provision for doubtful accounts). We use FFO, as defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, as a supplemental measure of our operating performance. FFO is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders in accordance with GAAP, excluding impairment write-downs on depreciable real estate, gains (or losses) from cumulative effects of accounting changes, extraordinary items and sales of properties, and real estate related depreciation and amortization.

In order to present operations in a manner most relevant to its future operations, Core FFO and Core NOI have been presented to exclude certain non-cash and non-recurring revenue and expenses. A reconciliation of NOI to Core NOI and FFO to Core FFO has been included in the "Reconciliation of Core NOI and Core FFO" schedule attached to this release.

NOI, FFO and derivations thereof, are not alternatives to GAAP operating income (loss) or net income (loss) available to common stockholders. For reference, as an aid in understanding management's computation of NOI and FFO, a reconciliation of NOI to operating income and FFO to net income (loss) in accordance with GAAP has been included in the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures" schedule attached to this release.
