Furthermore, the Company repriced its revolving credit facilities.

If approved by shareholders and the TSX, it is expected that the record date for the subdivision will be May 27, 2010 (or such other date to be announced by First Capital Realty).

The Company’s funds from operations – core operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 totalled $37.3 million or $0.38 per diluted common share which compares to $34.5 million or $0.38 per diluted common share for the three months ended March 31, 2009. FFO – core operations was positively affected by same property NOI growth and the effect of acquisitions and development coming on line. This gain was partially offset by increased interest and amortization expense. Interest expense increased

due to the increase in total debt related to growth in the Company’s core operations, and the increase in the proportion of higher cost fixed rate debt since the first quarter of 2009. In addition, the number of weighted average shares outstanding increased by 6.7% over the prior year.

FFO – EQY and other non-recurring items includes other gains (losses) and (expenses) and in the prior year, the effect of Equity One and its related interest expense and income taxes. For the three months ended March 31, 2010, FFO – EQY and other non-recurring items totalled $0.07 million or $nil per diluted common share basis which compares to $3.7 million or $0.04 per diluted common share in the corresponding prior year period.

During the quarter, the Company settled its litigation with the former co-owner of the Royal Oak Shopping Centre, resulting in the completion of the acquisition of the remaining 40% of the property that it did not already own. As a result, the Company recorded a gain of $1.7 million which consists of the collected net operating cash flow after interest expense from 40% of the property, less the additional cost of acquiring the property as a result of the settlement. The Company has included the entire net operating cash flow after interest expense, from the 40% of the property up to the acquisition date, in the calculation of AFFO for the quarter.

In addition, FFO – EQY and other non-recurring items included items such as gains on marketable securities offset by losses on debt extinguishment and losses on terminations of hedges, specifically:

Management views AFFO as an effective measure of cash generated from operations. AFFO for the three months ended March 31, 2010 totalled $40.9 million or $0.37 per diluted common share compared to $36.8 million or $0.37 per diluted common share in the prior year period. AFFO is calculated by adjusting FFO for actual costs incurred for capital expenditures and leasing costs for maintaining shopping centre infrastructure, current lease revenues, and non-cash items including straight-line and market rent adjustments, non-cash compensation expenses, interest paid in shares, and gains or losses on debt and hedges. Land sales are excluded from AFFO. The Company’s proportionate share of Equity One FFO is excluded and only the regular cash dividends received are included in the prior year’s AFFO. The weighted average diluted number of shares outstanding for AFFO is adjusted to assume conversion of the outstanding convertible debentures. Non-recurring AFFO items primarily consists of dividends from Equity One, net of the associated interest expense and realized gains on marketable securities.

Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2010 was $9.8 million or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted) compared to $9.1 million or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted) for the prior year comparable period. The increase in net income is primarily due to the increase in NOI resulting from development projects coming on line and same property NOI growth, increased interest and other income, increased other gains (losses) and (expenses) offset by increased interest expense, increased amortization expense and decreased income from Equity One as a result of the dividend-in-kind. In addition, there was an increase in the basic and weighted average diluted shares outstanding compared to the same prior year period.

DEVELOPMENT AND ACQUISITION ACTIVITIES

The Company invested $30 million in active development projects and improvements to existing properties during the first quarter of 2010. Development and redevelopment of 50,000 square feet was brought on line in the first quarter, leased at an average rate of $20.52 per square foot.

In addition, during the quarter, the Company invested $84 million in the acquisition of one income- producing property and the remaining 40% interest in Royal Oak Shopping Centre in Calgary, Alberta adding 200,000 square feet of gross leasable area, a 50% interest in one property adjacent to an existing shopping centre totalling 28,000 square feet, two parcels adjacent to existing properties and two properties held for development.

OPERATING SUMMARY

Net operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2010 totalled $74.7 million, compared to $68.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, an increase of $6.4 million or 9.4%. NOI includes $980,000 of lease termination payments from 11 tenants in the quarter comprising of 32,000 square feet. Same property NOI increased by 5.2% in the first quarter of 2010, compared to the same prior year period, generating NOI growth of $3.4 million, primarily attributed to redevelopment and expansion space coming on line, lease termination payments and increases in lease rates and occupancy. Same property NOI for the first quarter of 2010, excluding expansion or redevelopment space, increased by $1.9 million or 3.0% over the same prior year period. Acquisitions completed in 2010 and 2009 contributed $1.4 million to NOI in the first quarter of 2010, while greenfield development activities contributed a further $2.2 million.

Gross new leasing in the first quarter of 2010 totalled 196,000 square feet including development and redevelopment space coming on line. The Company achieved a 7.2% increase on 259,000 square feet of renewal leases over the expiring rates.

The average rate per occupied square foot at March 31, 2010 increased to $15.85. This compares to an average rate of $15.24 per square foot at March 31, 2009 and $15.71 at December 31, 2009.

Portfolio occupancy at March 31, 2010 of 96.3% compares to 96.2% at December 31, 2009 and 96.0% at March 31, 2009. Closures for redevelopment totalled 22,000 square feet for the first quarter of 2010 providing potential for future income growth through leasing and redevelopment activities.

OUTLOOK

Over the past several years First Capital Realty has made significant progress in growing its business and generating accretive growth in funds from operations while enhancing the quality of its portfolio.

The current environment remains competitive with little transaction activity. Both debt and equity markets are accessible, but continue to be challenging relative to pricing currently being asked by property vendors. The Company will continue to selectively acquire properties that are well-located and of high quality, where they add strategic value and/or operating synergies provided they will be accretive to FFO over the long term, and equity and debt capital can be priced and committed to maintain conservative leverage.

Development and redevelopment activities continue to provide the Company with opportunities to grow within its existing portfolio of assets. Once completed, these activities typically generate higher returns on investment.

With respect to acquisitions of both income-producing and development properties, the Company will continue to focus on maintaining the sustainability and growth potential of rental income to ensure that among other things, refinancing risk is minimized. This is particularly important given the current cost of capital.

Specifically, Management will focus on the following five areas to achieve its objectives in 2010:

  • same property net operating income growth, taking into account maintaining high occupancy;

  • development and redevelopment activities;

  • selective acquisitions;

  • increasing efficiency and productivity of operations; and

  • improving the cost of capital, for both debt and equity.

Overall, Management is confident that the quality of the Company’s balance sheet, the defensive nature of its assets and operations will continue to serve it well in the current environment.

Projections involve numerous assumptions such as rental income (including assumptions on timing of lease-up, development coming on line and levels of percentage rent), interest rates, tenant defaults, corporate expenses, the level and timing of acquisitions of income-producing properties, the Company’s capital structure and share price, the number of shares outstanding and numerous other factors. Not all factors which affect our range of projected funds from operations and adjusted funds from operations are determinable at this time, actual results may vary from the projected results in a material respect, and may be above or below the range presented in a material respect.

Guidance is based on first quarter 2010 actual results and specific assumptions including:

  • Same property NOI growth of 1.0% to 1.5% (excluding redevelopment and expansion);

  • Development, redevelopment and expansion coming on-line of 400,000 to 450,000 square feet with

    approximate gross book value of $100 to $120 million;

  • Income-producing property acquisitions totalling $100 million;

  • Development property acquisitions totalling $30 million; and

  • Revenue sustaining capital expenditure is expected to be approximately $0.65 per average square foot.

The ranges presented represent Management’s estimate of results based upon these assumptions as of the date of this press release. The purpose of the Company’s guidance is to provide readers with Management’s view as to the expected financial performance of the Company for 2010, using factors that are commonly accepted and viewed as meaningful indicators of financial performance in the real estate industry.

NON-GAAP SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL MEASURES

Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations

In Management’s view, funds from operations (“FFO”) and adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”) are commonly accepted and meaningful indicators of financial performance in the real estate industry. First Capital Realty believes that financial analysts, investors and shareholders are better served when the clear presentation of comparable period operating results generated from FFO and AFFO disclosures supplement Canadian generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) disclosure. These measures are the primary methods used in analyzing real estate organizations in Canada. The Company’s method of calculating FFO and AFFO may be different from methods used by other corporations or REITs (real estate investment trusts) and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other corporations or REITs. FFO and AFFO are presented to assist investors in analyzing the Company’s performance. FFO and AFFO: (i) do not represent cash flow from operating activities as defined by GAAP, (ii) are not indicative of cash available to fund all liquidity requirements, including payment of dividends and capital for growth and (iii) are not to be considered as alternatives to GAAP net income for the purpose of evaluating operating performance.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”)

First Capital Realty calculates FFO in accordance with the recommendations of the Real Property Association of Canada (“RealPac”). The definition is meant to standardize the calculation and disclosure of FFO across real estate entities in Canada, modelled on the definition adopted by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) in the United States. FFO as defined by RealPac differs in two respects from the definition adopted by NAREIT. Under the RealPac definition, future income taxes are excluded from FFO, whereas under the NAREIT definition, they are included. In addition, impairment losses on depreciable assets are excluded from the RealPac FFO definition, whereas the NAREIT definition includes them. As a result, when calculating FFO, the Company adjusts the FFO reported by Equity One to comply with the RealPac definition, when appropriate.

FFO is considered a meaningful additional measure of operating performance, as it excludes amortization of real estate assets. FFO also adjusts for certain items included in GAAP net income that may not be the most appropriate determinants of the long-term operating performance of the Company including gains and losses on depreciable real estate assets.

Net Operating Income

NOI is defined as property rental revenue less property operating costs. In Management’s opinion, NOI is useful in analyzing the operating performance of the Company’s shopping centre portfolio. NOI is not a measure defined by GAAP and as such there is no standard definition. As a result, NOI may not be comparable with similar measures presented by other entities. NOI is not to be construed as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP.
