THE MACERICH COMPANY

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)

(Unaudited)

1. Organization:

        The Macerich Company (the "Company") is involved in the acquisition, ownership, development, redevelopment, management and leasing of regional and community shopping centers (the "Centers") located throughout the United States.

        The Company commenced operations effective with the completion of its initial public offering on March 16, 1994. As of March 31, 2012, the Company was the sole general partner of and held a 92% ownership interest in The Macerich Partnership, L.P. (the "Operating Partnership"). The Company was organized to qualify as a real estate investment trust ("REIT") under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").

        The property management, leasing and redevelopment of the Company's portfolio is provided by the Company's management companies, Macerich Property Management Company, LLC, a single member Delaware limited liability company, Macerich Management Company, a California corporation, Macerich Arizona Partners LLC, a single member Arizona limited liability company, Macerich Arizona Management LLC, a single member Delaware limited liability company, Macerich Partners of Colorado LLC, a Colorado limited liability company, MACW Mall Management, Inc., a New York corporation, and MACW Property Management, LLC, a single member New York limited liability company. All seven of the management companies are collectively referred to herein as the "Management Companies."

        All references to the Company in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include the Company, those entities owned or controlled by the Company and predecessors of the Company, unless the context indicates otherwise.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:

    Basis of Presentation:

        The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements and have not been audited by independent public accountants.

        The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and the Operating Partnership. Investments in entities in which the Company retains a controlling financial interest or entities that meet the definition of a variable interest entity in which the Company has, as a result of ownership, contractual or other financial interests, both the power to direct activities that most significantly impact the economic performance of the variable interest entity and the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits that could potentially be significant to the variable interest entity are consolidated; otherwise they are accounted for under the equity method of accounting and are reflected as "investments in unconsolidated joint ventures."

        The Company had identified Shoppingtown Mall, L.P. ("Shoppingtown Mall") and Camelback Shopping Center Limited Partnership as variable interest entities that met the criteria for consolidation. On September 14, 2011, the Company redeemed the outside ownership interests in Shoppingtown Mall

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies: (Continued)

for a cash payment of $11,366 (See Note 13—Noncontrolling Interests). As a result of the redemption, the property became wholly-owned by the Company. The net assets and results of operations of Camelback Shopping Center Limited Partnership included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements were insignificant to the net assets and results of operations of the Company.

        All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

        The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements for the interim periods have been made. The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 has been derived from the audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP.

    Recent Accounting Pronouncements

        In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04, Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs ("ASU 2011-04"). The amendments in this update result in additional fair value measurement and disclosure requirements within U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. Consequently, the amendments change the wording used to describe many of the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. The adoption of ASU 2011-04 on January 1, 2012 did not have an impact on the Company's consolidated financial position or results of operations. The Company has disclosed in the notes to the financial statements whether the fair value measurements are Level 1, 2 or 3.

        In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income ("ASU 2011-05"). The amendments require that all non-owner changes in stockholders' equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In the two-statement approach, the first statement should present total net income and its components followed consecutively by a second statement that should present total other comprehensive income, the components of other comprehensive income and the total of comprehensive income. In December 2011, the FASB deferred portions of this update in its issuance of Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-12. The Company has elected the two-statement approach and the required financial statements are presented herein.

4. Investments in Unconsolidated Joint Ventures:

        The Company has recently made the following investments and dispositions relating to its unconsolidated joint ventures:

        On February 24, 2011, the Company's joint venture in Kierland Commons, a 434,642 square foot community center in Scottsdale, Arizona, acquired the ownership interest of another partner in the joint venture for $105,550. The Company's share of the purchase price consisted of a cash payment of $34,161 and the assumption of a pro rata share of debt of $18,613. As a result of the acquisition, the Company's ownership interest in Kierland Commons increased from 24.5% to 50%. The joint venture recognized a remeasurement gain of $25,019 on the acquisition based on the difference of the fair value received and its previously held investment in Kierland Commons. The Company's pro rata share of the gain recognized was $12,510.

        On February 28, 2011, the Company in a 50/50 joint venture acquired The Shops at Atlas Park, a 377,924 square foot community center in Queens, New York, for a total purchase price of $53,750. The Company's share of the purchase price was $26,875. The results of The Shops at Atlas Park are included below for the period subsequent to the acquisition.

        On February 28, 2011, the Company acquired the additional 50% ownership interest in Desert Sky Mall, an 893,863 square foot regional shopping center in Phoenix, Arizona, that it did not own for $27,625. The purchase price was funded by a cash payment of $1,875 and the assumption of the third party's pro rata share of the mortgage note payable on the property of $25,750. Concurrent with the purchase of the partnership interest, the Company paid off the $51,500 loan on the property. Prior to the acquisition, the Company had accounted for its investment in Desert Sky Mall under the equity method. Since the date of acquisition, the Company has included Desert Sky Mall in its consolidated financial statements (See Note 15—Acquisitions).

        On April 1, 2011, the Company's joint venture in SDG Macerich Properties, L.P. ("SDG Macerich") conveyed Granite Run Mall to the mortgage note lender by a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. The mortgage note was non-recourse. The Company's pro rata share of gain on the early extinguishment of debt was $7,753.

        On June 3, 2011, the Company entered into a transaction with General Growth Properties, Inc., whereby the Company acquired an additional 33.3% ownership interest in Arrowhead Towne Center, an additional 33.3% ownership interest in Superstition Springs Center, and an additional 50% ownership interest in the land under Superstition Springs Center ("Superstition Springs Land") that it did not own in exchange for six anchor locations, including five former Mervyn's stores (See Note 16—Discontinued Operations) and a cash payment of $75,000. As a result of this transaction, the Company now owns a 66.7% ownership interest in Arrowhead Towne Center, a 66.7% ownership interest in Superstition Springs Center and a 100% ownership interest in Superstition Springs Land. Although the Company had a 66.7% ownership interest in Arrowhead Towne Center and Superstition Springs Center upon completion of the transaction, the Company does not have a controlling financial interest in these joint ventures due to the substantive participation rights of the outside partner and, therefore, continues to account for its investments in these joint ventures under the equity method of accounting. Accordingly, no remeasurement gain was recorded on the increase in ownership. The Company has consolidated its investment in Superstition Springs Land since the date of acquisition (See Note 15—

Acquisitions) and has recorded a remeasurement gain of $1,734 as a result of the increase in ownership. This transaction is referred to herein as the "GGP Exchange".

        On December 31, 2011, the Company and its joint venture partner reached agreement for the distribution and conveyance of interests in SDG Macerich that owned 11 regional shopping centers in a 50/50 partnership. Six of the eleven assets were distributed to the Company on December 31, 2011. The Company received 100% ownership of Eastland Mall in Evansville, Indiana, Lake Square Mall in Leesburg, Florida, SouthPark Mall in Moline, Illinois, Southridge Mall in Des Moines, Iowa, NorthPark Mall in Davenport, Iowa and Valley Mall in Harrisonburg, Virginia (collectively referred to herein as the "SDG Acquisition Properties"). The ownership interests in the remaining five regional malls were distributed to the outside partner. The remaining net assets of SDG Macerich were distributed during the three months ended March 31, 2012. The SDG Acquisition Properties were recorded at fair value at the date of transfer, which resulted in a gain of $188,264, which was included in equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures, based on the fair value of the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed in excess of the book value of the Company's interest in SDG Macerich. The distribution and conveyance of the 11 regional shopping centers is referred to herein as the "SDG Transaction". Prior to the SDG Transaction, the Company accounted for its investment in the SDG Acquisition Properties under the equity method of accounting. Since the date of distribution and conveyance, the Company has included the SDG Acquisition Properties in its consolidated financial statements (See Note 15—Acquisitions).

        On March 30, 2012, the Company sold its 50% ownership interest in Chandler Village Center, a 273,439 square foot community center in Chandler, Arizona, for a total sales price of $14,795, resulting in a gain of $8,214 that is included in gain on remeasurement, sale or write down of assets, net during the three months ended March 31, 2012. The sales price was funded by a cash payment of $6,045 and the assumption of the Company's share of the mortgage note payable on the property of $8,750. The Company used the cash proceeds from the sale to pay down its line of credit and for general corporate purposes.

        On March 30, 2012, the Company sold its 50% ownership interest in Chandler Festival, a 500,426 square foot community center in Chandler, Arizona, for a total sales price of $30,975, resulting in a gain of $12,337 that is included in gain on remeasurement, sale or write down of assets, net during the three months ended March 31, 2012. The sales price was funded by a cash payment of $16,183 and the assumption of the Company's share of the mortgage note payable on the property of $14,792. The Company used the cash proceeds from the sale to pay down its line of credit and for general corporate purposes.

        On March 30, 2012, the Company's joint venture in SanTan Village Power Center, a 491,037 square foot community center in Gilbert, Arizona, sold the property for $54,780, resulting in a gain to the joint venture of $23,330. The cash proceeds from the sale were used to pay off the $45,000 mortgage loan on the property and the remaining $9,780 was distributed to the partners. The Company's share of the gain recognized was $11,520 that is included in equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures offset in part by $3,571 that was included in net income attributable to noncontrolling interests.

        Combined and condensed balance sheets and statements of operations are presented below for all unconsolidated joint ventures.

(19)
The loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 0.675% and matures on August 1, 2013. As additional collateral for the loan, the Company is required to maintain a deposit of $40,000 with the lender, which has been included in restricted cash.

        Most of the mortgage loan agreements contain a prepayment penalty provision for the early extinguishment of the debt.

        The Company expects that all loan maturities during the next twelve months, except Prescott Gateway, will be refinanced, restructured, extended and/or paid-off from the Company's line of credit or with cash on hand.

        Total interest expense capitalized was $2,353 and $3,335 during the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

        Related party mortgage notes payable are amounts due to affiliates of NML. See Note 18—Related-Party Transactions for interest expense associated with loans from NML.

The method for computing fair value (Level 2 measurement) was determined using a present value model and an interest rate that included a credit value adjustment based on the estimated value of the property that serves as collateral for the underlying debt.

11. Bank and Other Notes Payable:

        Bank and other notes payable consist of the following:

    Convertible Senior Notes ("Senior Notes"):

        On March 16, 2007, the Company issued $950,000 in Senior Notes that matured on March 15, 2012.

any time prior to March 13, 2012. The conversion right was not exercised prior to the maturity date of the Senior Notes.

        On March 15, 2012, the Company paid-off in full the $439,318 of Senior Notes then outstanding. The carrying value of the Senior Notes at December 31, 2011 was $437,788, which included an unamortized discount of $1,530. The unamortized discount was amortized into interest expense over the term of the Senior Notes in a manner that approximated the effective interest method. As of December 31, 2011, the effective interest rate was 5.41%. The fair value of the Senior Notes at December 31, 2011 was $437,788 (Level 1 measurement) based on the quoted market price.

    Line of Credit:

        The Company had a $1,500,000 revolving line of credit that bore interest at LIBOR plus a spread of 0.75% to 1.10% that matured on April 25, 2011. On May 2, 2011, the Company obtained a new $1,500,000 revolving line of credit that bears interest at LIBOR plus a spread of 1.75% to 3.0% depending on the Company's overall leverage and matures on May 2, 2015 with a one-year extension option. Based on the Company's current leverage levels, the borrowing rate on the new facility is LIBOR plus 2.0%. The line of credit can be expanded, depending on certain conditions, up to a total facility of $2,000,000 less the outstanding balance of the $125,000 unsecured term loan as described below. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, borrowings under the line of credit were $805,000 and $290,000, respectively, at an average interest rate of 2.78% and 2.96%, respectively. The fair value (Level 2 measurement) of the line of credit at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $801,748 and $292,366, respectively, based on a present value model using a credit interest rate spread offered to the Company for comparable debt.

    Term Loan:

        On December 8, 2011, the Company obtained a seven-year, $125,000 unsecured term loan under the line of credit that bears interest at LIBOR plus a spread of 1.95% to 3.20% depending on the Company's overall leverage and matures on December 8, 2018. Based on the Company's current leverage levels, the borrowing rate is LIBOR plus 2.20%. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the total interest rate was 2.59% and 2.42%, respectively. The fair value (Level 2 measurement) of the term loan at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $120,134 and $120,019, respectively, based on a present value model using a credit interest rate spread offered to the Company for comparable debt.

    Greeley Note:

        On July 27, 2006, concurrent with the sale of Greeley Mall, the Company provided marketable securities to replace Greeley Mall as collateral for the mortgage note payable on the property (See Note 7—Marketable Securities). As a result of this transaction, the mortgage note payable was reclassified to bank and other notes payable. This note bears interest at an effective rate of 6.34% and matures in September 2013. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Greeley Note had a balance outstanding of $24,646 and $24,848, respectively. The fair value (Level 2 measurement) of the

note at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $26,050 and $26,510, respectively, based on current interest rates for comparable loans. The method for computing fair value was determined using a present value model and an interest rate that included a credit value adjustment based on the estimated value of the collateral for the underlying debt.

        As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company was in compliance with all applicable financial loan covenants.

12. Co-Venture Arrangement:

        On September 30, 2009, the Company formed a joint venture, whereby a third party acquired a 49.9% interest in Freehold Raceway Mall and Chandler Fashion Center. As part of this transaction, the Company issued a warrant in favor of the third party to purchase 935,358 shares of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $46.68 per share. See "Warrants" in Note 14—Stockholders' Equity. The Company received approximately $174,650 in cash proceeds for the overall transaction, of which $6,496 was attributed to the warrants. The Company used the proceeds from this transaction to pay down the line of credit and for general corporate purposes.

        As a result of the Company having certain rights under the agreement to repurchase the assets after the seventh year of the venture formation, the transaction did not qualify for sale treatment. The Company, however, is not obligated to repurchase the assets. The transaction has been accounted for as a profit-sharing arrangement, and accordingly the assets, liabilities and operations of the properties remain on the books of the Company and a co-venture obligation was established for the amount of $168,154, representing the net cash proceeds received from the third party less costs allocated to the warrant. The co-venture obligation is increased for the allocation of income to the co-venture partner and decreased for distributions to the co-venture partner. The co-venture obligation was $121,981 and $125,171 at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

13. Noncontrolling Interests:

        The Company allocates net income of the Operating Partnership based on the weighted average ownership interest during the period. The net income of the Operating Partnership that is not attributable to the Company is reflected in the consolidated statements of operations as noncontrolling interests. The Company adjusts the noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership at the end of each period to reflect its ownership interest in the Company. The Company had a 92% ownership interest in the Operating Partnership as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. The remaining 8% limited partnership interest as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was owned by certain of the Company's executive officers and directors, certain of their affiliates, and other third party investors in the form of OP Units. The OP Units may be redeemed for shares of stock or cash, at the Company's option. The redemption value for each OP Unit as of any balance sheet date is the amount equal to the average of the closing price per share of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per share, as reported on the New York Stock Exchange for the ten trading days ending on the respective balance sheet date. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the aggregate redemption value of the then-outstanding OP Units not owned by the Company was $638,253 and $554,341, respectively.

13. Noncontrolling Interests: (Continued)

        The Company issued common and preferred units of MACWH, LP in April 2005 in connection with the acquisition of the Wilmorite portfolio. The common and preferred units of MACWH, LP are redeemable at the election of the holder, the Company may redeem them for cash or shares of the Company's stock at the Company's option and they are classified as permanent equity.

        Included in permanent equity are outside ownership interests in various consolidated joint ventures. The joint ventures do not have rights that require the Company to redeem the ownership interests in either cash or stock.

        The outside ownership interests in the Company's joint venture in Shoppingtown Mall had a purchase option for $11,366. In addition, under certain conditions as defined by the partnership agreement, these partners had the right to "put" their partnership interests to the Company. Due to the redemption feature of the ownership interest in Shoppingtown Mall, these noncontrolling interests were included in temporary equity as redeemable noncontrolling interests. The Company exercised its right to redeem the outside ownership interests in the partnership for cash and the redemption closed on September 14, 2011. The Company disposed of Shoppingtown Mall on December 30, 2011.

14. Stockholders' Equity:

        On September 30, 2009, the Company issued a warrant in connection with its formation of a co-venture to own and operate Freehold Raceway Mall and Chandler Fashion Center. (See Note 12—Co-Venture Arrangement.) The warrant provides for the purchase of 935,358 shares of the Company's common stock. The warrant was valued at $6,496 and recorded as a credit to additional paid-in capital. The warrant was immediately exercisable upon its issuance and will expire 30 days after the refinancing or repayment of each loan encumbering the Centers has closed. The warrant has an exercise price of $46.68 per share, with such price subject to anti-dilutive adjustments. The warrant allows for either gross or net issue settlement at the option of the warrant holder. In the event that the warrant holder elects a net issue settlement, the Company may elect to settle the warrant in cash or shares; provided, however, that in the event the Company elects to deliver cash, the holder may elect to instead have the exercise of the warrant satisfied in shares. In addition, the Company has entered into a registration rights agreement with the warrant holders requiring the Company to provide certain registration rights regarding the resale of shares of common stock underlying the warrant. In December 2011, holders requested a net issue exercise of 311,786 shares of the warrant and the Company elected to deliver a cash payment of $1,278 in exchange for the portion of the warrant exercised.

        The issuance of the warrants was exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Securities Act"), pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act. Each investor represented that it was an accredited investor, as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D, and that it was acquiring the securities for its own account, not as nominee or agent, and not with a view to the resale or distribution of any part thereof in violation of the Securities Act.

    Desert Sky Mall:

        On February 28, 2011, the Company acquired the additional 50% ownership interest in Desert Sky Mall, an 893,863 square foot regional shopping center in Phoenix, Arizona, that it did not own for $27,625. The acquisition was completed in order to gain 100% ownership and control over this well located asset. The purchase price was funded by a cash payment of $1,875 and the assumption of the third party's pro rata share of the mortgage note payable on the property of $25,750. Concurrent with the purchase of the partnership interest, the Company paid off the $51,500 loan on the property. Prior to the acquisition, the Company had accounted for its investment under the equity method (See Note 4—Investments in Unconsolidated Joint Ventures). As a result of this transaction, the Company obtained 100% ownership of Desert Sky Mall.

        The Company recorded the fair value of Superstition Springs Land at $12,914. As a result of obtaining control of this property, the Company recognized a gain of $1,734, which is included in gain on remeasurement, sale or write down of assets, net for the year ended December 31, 2011.

    Fashion Outlets of Niagara:

        On July 22, 2011, the Company acquired Fashion Outlets of Niagara, a 529,059 square foot outlet center in Niagara Falls, New York. The initial purchase price of $200,000 was funded by a cash payment of $78,579 and the assumption of the mortgage note payable with a carrying value of $121,421 and a fair value of $130,006. The cash purchase price was funded from borrowings under the Company's line of credit.

        The purchase and sale agreement includes contingent consideration based on the performance of Fashion Outlets of Niagara from the acquisition date through July 21, 2014 that could increase the purchase price from the initial $200,000 up to a maximum of $218,667. The Company estimated the fair value of the contingent consideration as of March 31, 2012 to be $15,098, which has been included in other accrued liabilities as part of the fair value of the total liabilities assumed.

        The following is a summary of the allocation of the fair value of Fashion Outlets of Niagara:

16. Discontinued Operations:

        On March 4, 2011, the Company sold a former Mervyn's store in Santa Fe, New Mexico, for $3,732, resulting in a loss of $1,913. The proceeds from the sale were used for general corporate purposes.

        On June 3, 2011, the Company disposed of six anchor stores at centers not owned by the Company (collectively referred to as the "GGP Anchor Stores"), including five former Mervyn's stores, as part of the GGP Exchange (See Note 4—Investments in Unconsolidated Joint Ventures). The Company determined that the fair value received in exchange for the GGP Anchor Stores was equal to their carrying value.

        On October 14, 2011, the Company sold a former Mervyn's store in Salt Lake City, Utah for $8,061, resulting in a gain of $3,783. The proceeds from the sale were used for general corporate purposes.

The Company had classified the estimated fair value as a Level 3 measurement due to the highly subjective nature of the computation, which involves estimates of holding period, market conditions, future occupancy levels, rental rates, capitalization rates, lease-up periods and capital improvements. On December 30, 2011, the Company conveyed

        In March 2012, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $54,306 related to Valley View Center. As a result of the sale of the property on April 23, 2012 (See Note 21—Subsequent Events), the Company wrote down the carrying value of the long-lived assets to its estimated fair value of $33,450 (Level 1 measurement), which was equal to the sales price of the property. As of March 31, 2012, the Company has classified the assets and liabilities of the property as held for sale on the balance sheet.

        The Company has classified the results of operations and gain or loss on sale for all of the above dispositions as discontinued operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

        Revenues from discontinued operations consisted of $1,892 and $5,804 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Loss from discontinued operations was $58,396 and $5,088 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Ground rent expense was $2,093 and $2,212 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. No contingent rent was incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2012 or 2011.

        As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company was contingently liable for $19,721 in letters of credit guaranteeing performance by the Company of certain obligations relating to the Centers. The Company does not believe that these letters of credit will result in a liability to the Company.

        The Company has entered into a number of construction agreements related to its redevelopment and development activities. Obligations under these agreements are contingent upon the completion of the services within the guidelines specified in the agreements. At March 31, 2012, the Company had $9,019 in outstanding obligations which it believes will be settled in the next twelve months.

18. Related-Party Transactions:

  $ 9,306   $ 8,647  
           

        Certain mortgage notes on the properties are held by NML (See Note 10—Mortgage Notes Payable). Interest expense in connection with these notes was $3,940 and $4,489 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Included in accounts payable and accrued expenses is interest payable on these notes of $1,281 and $1,379 at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

        As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had loans to unconsolidated joint ventures of $3,300 and $3,995, respectively. Interest income associated with these notes was $65 and $94 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. These loans represent initial funds advanced to development stage projects prior to construction loan funding. Accordingly, loan payables in the same amount have been accrued as an obligation by the various joint ventures.

        Due from affiliates of $4,991 and $3,387 at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, represents unreimbursed costs and fees due from unconsolidated joint ventures under management agreements.

19. Share and Unit-Based Plans:

        On February 23, 2012, the Company granted 190,000 limited partnership units of the Operating Partnership ("LTIP Units") under the Long-Term Incentive Plan ("LTIP") to four executive officers at a weighted average grant date fair value of $37.77 per LTIP Unit. The new grants vest over a service period ending January 31, 2013 based on the percentile ranking of the Company in terms of total return to stockholders (the "Total Return") per common stock share relative to the Total Return of a group of peer REITs, as measured at the end of the measurement period. Upon the occurrence of specified events and subject to the satisfaction of applicable vesting conditions, LTIP Units (after conversion into OP Units) are ultimately redeemable for common stock of the Company on a one-unit for one-share basis.

        The fair value of the Company's LTIP Units granted in 2012 was estimated on the date of grant using a Monte Carlo Simulation model. The stock price of the Company, along with the stock prices of the group of peer REITs, was assumed to follow the Multivariate Geometric Brownian Motion Process. Multivariate Geometric Brownian Motion Process modeling is commonly used in financial markets, as it allows the modeled quantity (in this case, the stock price) to vary randomly from its current value based on the stock price's expected volatility and current market interest rates. The volatilities of the

returns on the price of the Company and the peer group REITs were estimated based on a .92-year look-back period. The expected growth rate of the stock prices over the derived service period was determined with consideration of the risk free rate as of the grant date.

        On April 1, 2011, the Company's joint venture in SDG Macerich conveyed Granite Run Mall to the mortgage note lender by a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. The mortgage note was non-recourse. The Company's pro rata share of gain on early extinguishment of debt was $7.8 million.

        On May 11, 2011, the non-recourse mortgage note payable on Shoppingtown Mall went into maturity default. As a result of the maturity default and the corresponding reduction of the estimated holding period, the Company recognized an impairment charge of $35.7 million to write-down the carrying value of the long-lived assets to its estimated fair value. On September 14, 2011, the Company exercised its right and redeemed the outside ownership interests in Shoppingtown Mall for a cash payment of $11.4 million. On December 30, 2011, the Company conveyed Shoppingtown Mall to the mortgage note lender by a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure. As a result of the conveyance, the Company recognized an additional $3.9 million loss on the disposal of the property.

        As of December 1, 2011, the Prescott Gateway non-recourse loan was in maturity default. The Company is negotiating with the lender and the outcome is uncertain at this time.

    Redevelopment and Development Activity:

        In August 2011, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with a subsidiary of AWE/Talisman for the development of Fashion Outlets of Chicago in the Village of Rosemont, Illinois. The Company will own 60% of the joint venture and AWE/Talisman will own 40%. The Center will be a fully enclosed two level, 528,000 square foot outlet center. The site is located within a mile of O'Hare International Airport. The project broke ground in November 2011 and is expected to be completed in Summer 2013. The total estimated project cost is approximately $200.0 million. As of March 31, 2012, the joint venture has incurred $12.3 million of development costs. Fashion Outlets of Chicago is referred herein as the Development Property. On March 2, 2012, the joint venture obtained a construction loan on the property that allows for borrowings up to $140.0 million, bears interest at LIBOR plus 2.50% and matures March 2, 2017. As of March 31, 2012, no borrowings have been made under the loan.

        The Company's joint venture in Tysons Corner, a 1,985,179 square foot shopping center in McLean, Virginia, is currently expanding the property to include a 500,000 square foot office building, a 450 unit residential tower and a 300 room hotel. The joint venture expects the expansion project to be completed in 2014. The total estimated cost of the project is estimated at $600.0 million, with a total of $64.3 million incurred as of March 31, 2012.

    Inflation:

        In the last three years, inflation has not had a significant impact on the Company because of a relatively low inflation rate. Most of the leases at the Centers have rent adjustments periodically through the lease term. These rent increases are either in fixed increments or based on an annual multiple of increases in the Consumer Price Index ("CPI"). In addition, about 6% to 15% of the leases expire each year, which enables the Company to replace existing leases with new leases at higher base rents if the rents of the existing leases are below the then existing market rate. The Company has

Table of Contents

generally entered into leases that require tenants to pay a stated amount for operating expenses, generally excluding property taxes, regardless of the expenses actually incurred at any Center, which places the burden of cost control on the Company. Additionally, certain leases require the tenants to pay their pro rata share of operating expenses.

    Seasonality:

        The shopping center industry is seasonal in nature, particularly in the fourth quarter during the holiday season when retailer occupancy and retail sales are typically at their highest levels. In addition, shopping malls achieve a substantial portion of their specialty (temporary retailer) rents during the holiday season and the majority of percentage rent is recognized in the fourth quarter. As a result of the above, earnings are generally higher in the fourth quarter.

Critical Accounting Policies

        The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

        Some of these estimates and assumptions include judgments on revenue recognition, estimates for common area maintenance and real estate tax accruals, provisions for uncollectible accounts, impairment of long-lived assets, the allocation of purchase price between tangible and intangible assets, and estimates for environmental matters. The Company's significant accounting policies are described in more detail in Note 2—Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in the Company's Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. However, the following policies are deemed to be critical.

    Revenue Recognition:

        Minimum rental revenues are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the related lease. The difference between the amount of rent due in a year and the amount recorded as rental income is referred to as the "straight line rent adjustment." Currently, 62% of the mall store and freestanding store leases contain provisions for CPI rent increases periodically throughout the term of the lease. The Company believes that using an annual multiple of CPI increases, rather than fixed contractual rent increases, results in revenue recognition that more closely matches the cash revenue from each lease and will provide more consistent rent growth throughout the term of the leases. Percentage rents are recognized when the tenants' specified sales targets have been met. Estimated recoveries from certain tenants for their pro rata share of real estate taxes, insurance and other shopping center operating expenses are recognized as revenues in the period the applicable expenses are incurred. Other tenants pay a fixed rate and these tenant recoveries' revenues are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the related leases.

    Property:

        The Company capitalizes costs incurred in redevelopment and development of properties. The costs of land and buildings under development include specifically identifiable costs. The capitalized costs include pre-construction costs essential to the development of the property, development costs, construction costs, interest costs, real estate taxes, salaries and related costs and other costs incurred during the period of development. Capitalized costs are allocated to the specific components of a project that are benefited. The Company considers a construction project as completed and held available for occupancy and ceases capitalization of costs when the areas under development have been substantially completed.

38


Table of Contents

        Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to operations as incurred. Costs for major replacements and betterments, which includes HVAC equipment, roofs, parking lots, etc., are capitalized and depreciated over their estimated useful lives. Gains and losses are recognized upon disposal or retirement of the related assets and are reflected in earnings.

        Property is recorded at cost and is depreciated using a straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:

Buildings and improvements

  5 - 40 years

Tenant improvements

  5 - 7 years

Equipment and furnishings

  5 - 7 years

    Accounting for Acquisitions:

        The Company first determines the value of land and buildings utilizing an "as if vacant" methodology. The Company then assigns the fair value to any debt assumed at acquisition. The Company then allocates the purchase price based on fair value of the land, building, tenant improvements and identifiable intangible assets received and liabilities assumed. Tenant improvements represent the tangible assets associated with the existing leases valued on a fair value basis at the acquisition date prorated over the remaining lease terms. The tenant improvements are classified as an asset under property and are depreciated over the remaining lease terms. Identifiable intangible assets and liabilities relate to the value of in-place operating leases which come in three forms: (i) leasing commissions and legal costs, which represent the value associated with "cost avoidance" of acquiring in-place leases, such as lease commissions paid under terms generally experienced in the Company's markets; (ii) value of in-place leases, which represents the estimated loss of revenue and of costs incurred for the period required to lease the "assumed vacant" property to the occupancy level when purchased; and (iii) above or below market value of in-place leases, which represents the difference between the contractual rents and market rents at the time of the acquisition, discounted for tenant credit risks. Leasing commissions and legal costs are recorded in deferred charges and other assets and are amortized over the remaining lease terms. The value of in-place leases are recorded in deferred charges and other assets and are amortized over the remaining lease terms plus an estimate of renewal of the acquired leases. Above or below market leases are classified in deferred charges and other assets or in other accrued liabilities, depending on whether the contractual terms are above or below market.

        The allocated values of above and below-market leases are amortized into minimum rents on a straight-line basis over the individual remaining lease terms. The remaining lease terms of below-market leases may include certain below-market fixed-rate renewal periods. In considering whether or not a lessee will execute a below-market fixed-rate lease renewal option, the Company evaluates economic factors and certain qualitative factors at the time of acquisition such as tenant mix in the center, the Company's relationship with the tenant and the availability of competing tenant space.

    Asset Impairment:

        The Company assesses whether an indicator of impairment in the value of its properties exists by considering expected future operating income, trends and prospects, as well as the effects of demand, competition and other economic factors. Such factors include projected rental revenue, operating costs and capital expenditures as well as estimated holding periods and capitalization rates. If an impairment indicator exists, the determination of recoverability is made based upon the estimated undiscounted future net cash flows, excluding interest expense. The amount of impairment loss, if any, is determined by comparing the fair value, as determined by a discounted cash flows analysis, with the carrying value of the related assets. The Company generally holds and operates its properties long-term, which decreases the likelihood of its carrying values not being recoverable. Properties classified as held for sale are measured at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell.

39


Table of Contents

        The Company reviews its investments in unconsolidated joint ventures for a series of operating losses and other factors that may indicate that a decrease in the value of its investments has occurred which is other-than-temporary. The investment in each unconsolidated joint venture is evaluated periodically, and as deemed necessary, for recoverability and valuation declines that are other than temporary.

    Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

        The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between market participant assumptions based on market data obtained from sources independent of the reporting entity and the reporting entity's own assumptions about market participant assumptions.

        Level 1 inputs utilize quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access. Level 2 inputs are inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly. Level 2 inputs may include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, as well as inputs that are observable for the asset or liability (other than quoted prices), such as interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and yield curves that are observable at commonly quoted intervals. Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for the asset or liability, which are typically based on an entity's own assumptions, as there is little, if any, related market activity. 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. The Company's 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.

        The Company calculates the fair value of financial instruments and includes this additional information in the notes to consolidated financial statements when the fair value is different than the carrying value of those financial instruments. When the fair value reasonably approximates the carrying value, no additional disclosure is made.

    Deferred Charges:

        Costs relating to obtaining tenant leases are deferred and amortized over the initial term of the agreement using the straight-line method. As these deferred leasing costs represent productive assets incurred in connection with the Company's provision of leasing arrangements at the Centers, the related cash flows are classified as investing activities within the Company's Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows. Costs relating to financing of shopping center properties are deferred and amortized over the life of the related loan using the straight-line method, which approximates the effective interest method. In-place lease values are amortized over the remaining lease term plus an estimate of the renewal term. Leasing commissions and legal costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the individual remaining lease years. The ranges of the terms of the agreements are as follows:

Deferred lease costs

  1 - 15 years

Deferred financing costs

  1 - 15 years

In-place lease values

  Remaining lease term plus an estimate for renewal

Leasing commissions and legal costs

  1 - 10 years

Results of Operations

        Many of the variations in the results of operations, discussed below, occurred because of the transactions affecting the Company's properties described above, including the Acquisition Properties, the Mervyn's Properties and the Development Property. The "Same Centers" include all consolidated Centers, excluding the Mervyn's Properties, the Acquisition Properties and the Development Property.

        The increase in revenues and expenses of the Acquisition Properties during the three months ended March 31, 2012 in comparison to the three months ended March 31, 2011 is primarily due to the inclusion of the SDG Acquisition Properties in the results of operations in 2012. (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary).

        Unconsolidated joint ventures are reflected using the equity method of accounting. The Company's pro rata share of the results from these Centers is reflected in the Consolidated Statements of Operations as equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures.

        The Company considers tenant annual sales per square foot (for tenants in place for 12 months or longer and under 10,000 square feet), occupancy rates (excluding large retail stores or "Anchors") for the Centers and releasing spreads (i.e. a comparison of average base rent per square foot on leases executed during the trailing twelve months to average base rent per square foot on leases expiring during the year) to be key performance indicators of the Company's internal growth.

        Tenant sales per square foot increased from $449 for the three months ended March 31, 2011 to $504 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Occupancy rate decreased from 92.3% at March 31, 2011 to 92.1% at March 31, 2012. Releasing spreads increased 15.8% for the twelve months ended March 31, 2012. These calculations exclude Valley View Center, Granite Run Mall, Shoppingtown Mall and Centers under development or redevelopment.

        The Company's recent trend of retail sales growth continued during the three months ended March 31, 2012 with tenant sales per square foot increasing compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The Company expects that releasing spreads will continue to be positive during 2012 as it renews or relets leases that are scheduled to expire during the year. The Company's occupancy rate as of March 31, 2012 decreased compared to March 31, 2011 primarily because of the liquidation of one tenant. Although certain aspects of the U.S. economy, the retail industry as well as the Company's operating results have continued to improve, economic and political uncertainty remains in various parts of the world. In addition, the U.S. economy is still experiencing weakness, high levels of unemployment have persisted and rental rates and valuations for retail space have not fully recovered to pre-recession levels. Any further continuation of these adverse conditions could harm the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition.

Comparison of Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 and 2011

    Revenues:

        Minimum and percentage rents (collectively referred to as "rental revenue") increased by $17.8 million, or 16.4%, from 2011 to 2012. The increase in rental revenue is attributed to an increase of $16.8 million from the Acquisition Properties, $0.4 million from the Mervyn's Properties and $0.6 million from the Same Centers. Rental revenue includes the amortization of above and below-market leases, the amortization of straight-line rents and lease termination income. The amortization of above and below-market leases increased from $2.2 million in 2011 to $2.7 million in 2012. The amortization of straight-lined rents increased from $0.1 million in 2011 to $1.2 million in 2012 primarily because of the Acquisition Properties. Lease termination income increased from $1.3 million in 2011 to $1.6 million in 2012.

Table of Contents

        Tenant recoveries increased $6.3 million, or 10.6%, from 2011 to 2012. This increase in tenant recoveries is attributed to an increase of $6.8 million from the Acquisition Properties offset in part by a decrease of $0.5 million from the Same Centers.

        Management Companies revenue increased from $10.6 million in 2011 to $11.2 million in 2012 due primarily to an increase in development fees.

    Shopping Center and Operating Expenses:

        Shopping center and operating expenses increased $8.2 million, or 13.8%, from 2011 to 2012. The increase in shopping center and operating expenses is attributed to an increase of $8.3 million from the Acquisition Properties offset in part by a decrease of $0.1 million from the Mervyn's Properties.

    Management Companies' Operating Expenses:

        Management Companies' operating expenses decreased $3.3 million from 2011 to 2012 due to a decrease in compensation costs in 2012.

    REIT General and Administrative Expenses:

        REIT general and administrative expenses decreased by $3.1 million from 2011 to 2012 due to a decrease in compensation costs in 2012.

    Depreciation and Amortization:

        Depreciation and amortization increased $14.0 million from 2011 to 2012. The increase in depreciation and amortization is primarily attributed to an increase of $10.6 million from the Acquisition Properties, $2.9 million from the Same Centers and $0.2 million from the Mervyn's Properties.

    Interest Expense:

        Interest expense decreased $5.6 million from 2011 to 2012. The decrease in interest expense was primarily attributed to a decrease of $5.5 million from the Same Centers, $3.2 million from the Senior Notes (See Liquidity and Capital Resources), $2.4 million from the borrowings under the Company's line of credit and $0.3 million from the Development Property offset in part by an increase of $5.0 million from the Acquisition Properties and $0.8 million from the Term Loan (See Liquidity and Capital Resources). The decrease in interest expense at the Same Centers is primarily attributed to the maturity of a $400.0 million interest rate swap agreement in April 2011.

        The above interest expense items are net of capitalized interest, which decreased from $3.3 million in 2011 to $2.4 million in 2012, primarily due to a decrease in interest rates.

    Equity in Income of Unconsolidated Joint Ventures:

        Equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures increased $0.3 million from 2011 to 2012.

    Gain on Remeasurement, Sale or Write Down of Assets:

        Gain on remeasurement, sale or write down of assets increased $16.8 million from 2011 to 2012. The increase is primarily attributed to the sale of the Company's investments in Chandler Festival and Chandler Village Center in 2012 (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary).

42


Table of Contents

    Loss From Discontinued Operations:

        Loss from discontinued operations increased $53.3 million from 2011 to 2012. The increase in loss from discontinued operations is primarily due to the impairment charge of $54.3 million in 2012 due to the write down of the long-lived assets of Valley View Center to fair value (See "Other Transactions and Events" in Management's Overview and Summary).

    Net (Loss) Income Attributable to the Company:

        The net loss attributable to the Company increased $14.1 million from 2011 to 2012. The increase is primarily attributed to the increase in loss from discontinued operations of $53.3 million offset in part by an increase in gain on the remeasurement, sale or write down of assets of $16.8 million and the increase in revenues of $29.5 million as discussed above.

    Funds From Operations ("FFO"):

        Primarily as a result of the factors mentioned above, FFO—diluted increased 44.1% from $73.7 million in 2011 to $106.2 million in 2012. For a reconciliation of FFO and FFO—diluted to net income attributable to the Company, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, see "Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations."

    Operating Activities:

        Cash provided by operating activities increased from $41.5 million in 2011 to $86.2 million in 2012. The increase was primarily due to changes in assets and liabilities and the results at the Acquisition Properties as discussed above.

    Investing Activities:

        Cash used in investing activities decreased from $73.3 million in 2011 to $71.5 million in 2012. The decrease was primarily due to a $55.8 million decrease in contributions to unconsolidated joint ventures and an increase of $18.4 million in proceeds from the sale of assets offset in part by an increase of $51.2 million in acquisitions of property, development, redevelopment and property improvements, the decrease of $13.2 million in distributions from unconsolidated joint ventures and the issuance of $12.5 million of notes receivable in 2012.

        The increase in acquisitions of property, development, redevelopment and property improvements is primarily attributed to the purchase of 500 North Michigan Avenue (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary).

    Financing Activities:

        Cash used in financing activities increased from a deficit of $225.8 million in 2011 to a surplus of $147.3 million in 2012. The increase in cash provided by financing activities was primarily due to an increase in proceeds from mortgages, bank and other notes payable of $628.9 million offset in part by an increase in payments on mortgages, bank and other notes payable of $272.8 million.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

        The Company anticipates meeting its liquidity needs for its operating expenses and debt service and dividend requirements for the next twelve months through cash generated from operations, working capital reserves and/or borrowings under its unsecured line of credit.

        The Company expects amounts to be incurred during the next twelve months for tenant allowances and deferred leasing charges to be comparable or less than 2011 and that capital for those expenditures will be available from working capital, cash flow from operations, borrowings on property specific debt or unsecured corporate borrowings. The Company expects to incur between $200 million and $300 million during the next twelve months for development, redevelopment, expansion and renovations. Capital for these major expenditures, developments and/or redevelopments has been, and is expected to continue to be obtained from a combination of debt or equity financings, which are expected to include borrowings under the Company's line of credit and construction loans. The Company has also generated liquidity in the past through equity offerings, property refinancings, joint venture transactions and the sale of non-core assets including the sales of Chandler Village Center, Chandler Festival and SanTan Village Power Center (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary), and has plans to sell additional non-core assets in 2012. Furthermore, the Company has filed a shelf registration statement which registered an unspecified amount of common stock, preferred stock, depositary shares, debt securities, warrants, rights and units.

        The capital and credit markets can fluctuate, and at times, limit access to debt and equity financing for companies. As demonstrated by the Company's recent activity, including its new $1.5 billion line of credit, the Company has recently been able to access capital; however, there is no assurance the Company will be able to do so in future periods or on similar terms and conditions. Many factors impact the Company's ability to access capital, such as its overall debt level, interest rates, interest coverage ratios and prevailing market conditions. In the event that the Company has significant tenant defaults as a result of the overall economy and general market conditions, the Company could have a decrease in cash flow from operations, which could create borrowings under its line of credit. These events could result in an increase in the Company's proportion of floating rate debt, which would cause it to be subject to interest rate fluctuations in the future.

        The Company's total outstanding loan indebtedness at March 31, 2012 was $6.2 billion (including $930 million of unsecured debt and $1.9 billion of its pro rata share of joint venture debt). The majority of the Company's debt consists of fixed-rate conventional mortgages notes collateralized by individual properties. The Company expects that all of the maturities during the next twelve months, except the mortgage note payable on Prescott Gateway, will be refinanced, restructured, extended and/or paid off from the Company's line of credit or cash on hand. The Company's loan obligation

regarding Valley View Center was discharged on April 23, 2012 (See "Other Transactions and Events" in Management's Overview and Summary).

        On March 15, 2012, the Company repaid the $439.3 million of senior convertible notes ("Senior Notes") that had matured. The repayment was funded by additional borrowings under the Company's line of credit.

        The Company has a $1.5 billion revolving line of credit that bears interest at LIBOR plus a spread of 1.75% to 3.0% depending on the Company's overall leverage and matures on May 2, 2015 with a one-year extension option. Based on the Company's current leverage levels, the borrowing rate on the new facility is LIBOR plus 2.0%. The line of credit can be expanded, depending on certain conditions, up to a total facility of $2.0 billion less the outstanding balance of the $125.0 million unsecured term loan, as discussed below. All obligations under the line of credit are unconditionally guaranteed by the Company and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries and are secured, subject to certain exceptions, by pledges of direct and indirect ownership interests in certain of the subsidiary guarantors. At March 31, 2012, total borrowings under the line of credit were $805 million with an average effective interest rate of 2.78%.

        The Company has a $125.0 million unsecured term loan ("Term Loan") under the Company's line of credit that bears interest at LIBOR plus a spread of 1.95% to 3.20% depending on the Company's overall leverage and matures on December 8, 2018. Based on the Company's current leverage levels, the borrowing rate is LIBOR plus 2.20%. As of March 31, 2012, the total interest rate was 2.59%.

        At March 31, 2012, the Company was in compliance with all applicable loan covenants under its agreements.

        At March 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents available of $229.3 million.

    Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements:

        The Company accounts for its investments in joint ventures that it does not have a controlling interest in or is not the primary beneficiary of, using the equity method of accounting and those investments are reflected on the Consolidated Balance Sheets of the Company as "Investments in unconsolidated joint ventures" and "Distributions in excess of investments in unconsolidated joint ventures".

        In addition, certain joint ventures also have secured debt that could become recourse debt to the Company or its subsidiaries, in excess of the Company's pro rata share, should the joint ventures be unable to discharge the obligations of the related debt. At March 31, 2012, the balance of the debt that could be recourse to the Company was $374.2 million offset in part by indemnity agreements from joint venture partners for $179.5 million. The maturities of the recourse debt, net of indemnification, are $168.9 million in 2013, $16.8 million in 2015 and $9.0 million in 2016.

        Additionally, as of March 31, 2012, the Company is contingently liable for $19.7 million in letters of credit guaranteeing performance by the Company of certain obligations relating to the Centers. The Company does not believe that these letters of credit will result in a liability to the Company.

        The Company uses FFO in addition to net income to report its operating and financial results and considers FFO and FFO-diluted as supplemental measures for the real estate industry and a supplement to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") measures. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT") defines FFO as net income (loss) (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from extraordinary items and sales of depreciated operating properties, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, impairment write-downs of real estate and write-downs of investments in an affiliate where the write-downs have been driven by a decrease in the value of real estate held by the affiliate and after adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures. Adjustments for unconsolidated joint ventures are calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis.

        Adjusted FFO ("AFFO") excludes the FFO impact of Shoppingtown Mall and Valley View Center for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. In December 2011, the Company conveyed Shoppingtown Mall to the lender by a deed in lieu of foreclosure. In July 2010, a court-appointed receiver assumed operational control of Valley View Center and responsibility for managing all aspects of the property. Valley View Center was sold by the receiver on April 23, 2012, and the related non-recourse mortgage loan obligation was fully extinguished on that date.

        FFO and FFO on a diluted basis are useful to investors in comparing operating and financial results between periods. This is especially true since FFO excludes real estate depreciation and amortization, as the Company believes real estate values fluctuate based on market conditions rather than depreciating in value ratably on a straight-line basis over time. The Company believes that AFFO and AFFO on a diluted basis provide useful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance as they show a more meaningful and consistent comparison of the Company's operating performance and allow investors to more easily compare the Company's results without taking into account the unrelated non-cash charges on properties controlled by either a receiver or loan servicer. FFO and AFFO on a diluted basis are measures investors find most useful in measuring the dilutive impact of outstanding convertible securities.

        FFO and AFFO do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, should not be considered as an alternative to net income as defined by GAAP, and are not indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs. The Company also cautions that FFO and AFFO, as presented, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other real estate investment trusts.

        Management compensates for the limitations of FFO and AFFO by providing investors with financial statements prepared according to GAAP, along with this detailed discussion of FFO and AFFO and a reconciliation of FFO and AFFO and FFO and AFFO-diluted to net income available to common stockholders. Management believes that to further understand the Company's performance, FFO and AFFO should be compared with the Company's reported net income and considered in addition to cash flows in accordance with GAAP, as presented in the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements.

        The following reconciles net (loss) income available to common stockholders to FFO and FFO-diluted for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 and FFO and FFO—diluted to AFFO and AFFO—diluted for the same periods (dollars and shares in thousands):

It also assumes the conversion of MACWH, LP common and preferred units to the extent that they are dilutive to the FFO and AFFO—diluted computation.

Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

        The Company's primary market risk exposure is interest rate risk. The Company has managed and will continue to manage interest rate risk by (1) maintaining a ratio of fixed rate, long-term debt to total debt such that floating rate exposure is kept at an acceptable level, (2) reducing interest rate exposure on certain long-term floating rate debt through the use of interest rate caps and/or swaps with appropriately matching maturities, (3) using treasury rate locks where appropriate to fix rates on anticipated debt transactions, and (4) taking advantage of favorable market conditions for long-term debt and/or equity.

        The following table sets forth information as of March 31, 2012 concerning the Company's long-term debt obligations, including principal cash flows by scheduled maturity, weighted average interest rates and estimated fair value ("FV") (dollars in thousands):

        The consolidated Centers' total fixed rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $2.2 billion and $2.6 billion, respectively. The average interest rate on fixed rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 5.39% and 5.53%, respectively. The consolidated Centers' total floating rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $2.1 billion and $1.6 billion, respectively. The average interest rate on floating rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 2.91% and 3.09%, respectively.

        The Company's pro rata share of the Unconsolidated Joint Venture Centers' fixed rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $1.8 billion. The average interest rate on fixed rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 5.92%. The Company's pro rata share of the Unconsolidated Joint Venture Centers' floating rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was $152.4 million and $161.2 million, respectively. The average interest rate on the floating rate debt at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 was 3.85% and 3.88%, respectively.

        The Company uses derivative financial instruments in the normal course of business to manage or hedge interest rate risk and records all derivatives on its consolidated balance sheets at fair value (See Note 5—Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities in the Company's Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements).

Value
 

Westside Pavilion

    175,000   Cap     5.50 %   6/5/2012     100 %    

        Interest rate cap agreements ("Cap") offer protection against floating rates on the notional amount from exceeding the rates noted in the above schedule.

        In addition, the Company has assessed the market risk for its floating rate debt and believes that a 1% increase in interest rates would decrease future earnings and cash flows by approximately $22.5 million per year based on $2.2 billion of floating rate debt outstanding at March 31, 2012.

        The fair value of the Company's long-term debt is estimated based on a present value model utilizing interest rates that reflect the risks associated with long-term debt of similar risk and duration. In addition, the method of computing fair value for mortgage notes payable included a credit value adjustment based on the estimated value of the property that serves as collateral for the underlying debt (See Note 10—Mortgage Notes Payable and Note 11—Bank and Other Notes Payable in the Company's Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements).

Item 4.    Controls and Procedures

        As required by Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, management carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on their evaluation as of March 31, 2012, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) were effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (a) recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (b) is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management, including its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

        In addition, there has been no change in the Company's internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15(d)-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) that occurred during the Company's most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
