Dear Fellow Stockholders:
Please join us for Brixmor Property Group Inc.’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders on Thursday, May 18, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time) at the Grand Hyatt New York, 109 East 42nd Street at Grand Central Terminal, New York, New York 10017 in the Gallery on Lex (Room III).
As permitted by the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, we are pleased to be furnishing our proxy materials to stockholders primarily over the Internet. We believe this process expedites the stockholders’ receipt of the materials, lowers the costs of the Annual Meeting and conserves natural resources. We sent to stockholders of record at the close of business on March 14, 2017 a Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials. The notice contains instructions on how to access our proxy statement, annual report to stockholders and annual report on Form 10-K and vote online. If you would like to receive a printed copy of our proxy materials instead of downloading a printable version from the Internet, please follow the instructions for requesting such materials included in the notice.
The matters to be acted upon at the Annual Meeting are described in detail in the accompanying notice of the Annual Meeting and the proxy statement. We also will report on matters of current interest to our stockholders.
Please use this opportunity to contribute to our company by voting on the matters to come before this Annual Meeting. Stockholders who hold shares in their own name through our transfer agent, Computershare, can vote online or by telephone. To vote online or by telephone, follow the instructions for online voting contained within your Annual Meeting materials. In addition, if you have requested or received a paper copy of the proxy materials, you can vote by completing, dating, signing and returning the proxy card sent to you in the envelope accompanying the proxy materials. Voting online, by telephone or by returning the proxy card does not deprive you of your right to attend the Annual Meeting and to vote your shares in person. If you do attend the Annual Meeting and wish to vote in person, you may revoke your proxy at or prior to the Annual Meeting.
Thank you for your continued support of Brixmor Property Group Inc.
Sincerely,

PROXY STATEMENT
Annual Meeting of Stockholders May 18, 2017 9:00 a.m. (Eastern Daylight Time)
This proxy statement is being furnished by and on behalf of the board of directors of Brixmor Property Group Inc. in connection with the solicitation of proxies to be voted at the 2017 annual meeting of stockholders. This proxy statement and our 2016 annual report to stockholders will be available at www.viewproxy.com/brixmor/2017 beginning on March 30, 2017.
General Information
Why am I being provided with these materials?
We have made these proxy materials available to you via the Internet or, upon your request, have delivered printed versions of these proxy materials to you by mail in connection with the solicitation by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Brixmor Property Group Inc., a Maryland corporation (the “Company”), of proxies to be voted at our Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on May 18, 2017 (“Annual Meeting”), and at any postponements or adjournments of the Annual Meeting. Directors, officers and other Company employees also may solicit proxies by telephone or otherwise. Brokers, banks and other nominees will be requested to solicit proxies or authorizations from beneficial owners and will be reimbursed for their reasonable expenses. You are invited to attend the Annual Meeting and vote your shares in person. The Annual Meeting will be held at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time at the Grand Hyatt New York, 109 East 42nd Street at Grand Central Terminal, New York, New York 10017 in the Gallery on Lex (Room III). For directions to the Annual Meeting you may contact our Secretary at Brixmor Property Group Inc., 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017.
What am I voting on?
There are three proposals to be considered and voted on at the Annual Meeting:

Proposal No. 1:   Election of nine directors to serve until our next annual meeting and until their successors are duly elected and qualify.

Proposal No. 2:   Ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2017.

Proposal No. 3:   Approval, on a non-binding advisory basis, of the compensation paid to our named executive officers, as described in this proxy statement.
Who is entitled to vote?
Stockholders as of the close of business on March 14, 2017 (the “Record Date”), may vote at the Annual Meeting, or any postponement or adjournment thereof. As of that date, there were 304,893,187 shares of common stock outstanding. You have one vote for each share of common stock held by you as of the Record Date, including shares:

Held directly in your name as “stockholder of record” (also referred to as “registered stockholder”);

Held for you in an account with a broker, bank or other nominee (shares held in “street name”). Street name holders generally cannot vote their shares directly and instead must instruct the broker, bank or other nominee how to vote their shares; and

Held for you by us as restricted shares (whether vested or non-vested) under any of our stock incentive plans.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
What constitutes a quorum?
The presence in person or by proxy of stockholders entitled to cast a majority of all the votes entitled to be cast at the Annual Meeting will constitute a quorum to transact business at the Annual Meeting. Stockholders who properly authorize a proxy but who instruct their proxy holder to abstain from voting on one or more matters are counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum. Shares represented by “broker non-votes,” described below, also are counted as present and entitled to vote for purposes of determining a quorum. However, as described below under “How are votes counted?,” if you hold your shares in street name and do not provide voting instructions to your broker, bank or other nominee, your shares will not be voted on any proposal on which your broker, bank or other nominee does not have discretionary authority to vote (a “broker non-vote”).
What is a “broker non-vote”?
A broker non-vote occurs when shares held by a broker, bank or other nominee are not voted with respect to a proposal because (1) the broker, bank or other nominee has not received voting instructions from the stockholder who beneficially owns the shares and (2) the broker, bank or other nominee lacks the authority to vote the shares at his/her discretion. Under current New York Stock Exchange interpretations that govern broker non-votes, Proposal Nos. 1 and 3 are considered non-discretionary matters and a broker, bank or other nominee will lack the authority to vote shares at his/her discretion on such proposals. Proposal No. 2 is considered a discretionary matter and a broker, bank or other nominee will be permitted to exercise his/her discretion.
How many votes are required to approve each proposal?
The affirmative vote of a majority of the votes cast will be required to approve each proposal at the Annual Meeting. While the vote on executive compensation (Proposal No. 3) is advisory in nature and non-binding, the Board will review the voting results and expects to take them into consideration when making future decisions regarding executive compensation.
How are votes counted?
You may instruct your proxy to vote “FOR” or “AGAINST” or to “ABSTAIN” with respect to each of the proposals. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the proposals.
If you properly authorize a proxy (whether by internet, telephone or mail) without specifying voting instructions on any matter to be considered at the Annual Meeting, the proxy holders will vote your shares according to the Board’s recommendation on that matter and in accordance with the discretion of the holders of the proxy with respect to any other matters that may be brought before the Annual Meeting. The Board has recommended a vote “FOR” each director nominee listed herein and “FOR” Proposals Nos. 2 and 3.
Who will count the vote?
Representatives of Alliance Advisors will tabulate the votes, and representatives of Alliance Advisors will serve as inspectors of election.
How does the Board recommend that I vote?
Our Board recommends that you vote your shares:

“FOR” each of the nominees for election as directors set forth in this proxy statement.

“FOR” the ratification of the appointment of Deloitte & Touche LLP as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2017.

“FOR” the approval, on a non-binding, advisory basis, of the compensation paid to our named executive officers, as described in this proxy statement.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
How do I authorize a proxy to vote my shares without attending the Annual Meeting?
If you are a stockholder of record, you may authorize a proxy to vote on your behalf at the Annual Meeting. Specifically, you may authorize a proxy:

By Internet—If you have Internet access, you may authorize your proxy by going to www.AALvote.com.BRX and by following the instructions on how to complete an electronic proxy card. You will need the control number included on your Notice of Internet Availability or proxy card in order to vote by Internet.

By Telephone—If you have access to a touch-tone telephone, you may authorize your proxy by dialing 1-866-804-9616 and by following the recorded instructions. You will need the control number included on your Notice of Internet Availability or proxy card in order to vote by telephone.

By Mail—If you have requested or received a paper copy of the proxy materials by mail, you may authorize your proxy by mail by completing, signing and dating the enclosed proxy card where indicated and by mailing or otherwise returning the card in the envelope that has been provided to you. You should sign your name exactly as it appears on the proxy card. If you are signing in a representative capacity (for example, as guardian, executor, trustee, custodian, attorney or officer of a corporation), indicate your name and title or capacity.
If you hold your shares in street name, you may submit voting instructions to your broker, bank or other nominee. In most instances, you will be able to do this over the Internet, by telephone or by mail. Please refer to information from your broker, bank, or other nominee on how to submit voting instructions.
Internet and telephone voting facilities will close at 11:59 p.m. on May 17, 2017 for the voting of shares held by stockholders of record or held in street name.
Mailed proxy cards with respect to shares held of record or in street name must be received no later than May 17, 2017.
How do I vote my shares in person at the Annual Meeting?
First, you must satisfy the requirements for admission to the Annual Meeting (see below). Then, if you are a stockholder of record and prefer to vote your shares at the Annual Meeting, you must bring proof of identification along with your Notice of Internet Availability or proof of ownership. You may vote shares held in street name at the Annual Meeting only if you obtain a signed proxy from the record holder (for example, your broker, bank or other nominee) giving you the right to vote the shares.
Even if you plan to attend the Annual Meeting, we encourage you to vote in advance by Internet, telephone or mail so that your vote will be counted even if you later decide not to attend the Annual Meeting.
What does it mean if I receive more than one Notice on or about the same time?
It generally means you hold shares registered in more than one account. To ensure that all your shares are voted, please sign and return each proxy card or, if you authorize a proxy by Internet or telephone, vote once for each Notice you receive.
May I change my vote or revoke my proxy?
Yes. Whether you have authorized a proxy by Internet, telephone or mail, if you are a stockholder of record, you may change your voting instructions or revoke your proxy by:

Sending a written statement to that effect to our Corporate Secretary, provided such statement is received no later than May 17, 2017;

Authorizing a proxy again by Internet or telephone at a later time before the closing of those voting facilities at 11:59 p.m. on May 17, 2017;

Submitting a properly signed proxy card with a later date that is received no later than May 17, 2017; or

Attending the Annual Meeting, revoking your proxy and voting in person.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
If you hold shares in street name, you may submit new voting instructions by contacting your broker, bank or other nominee. You may also change your vote or revoke your proxy in person at the Annual Meeting if you obtain a signed proxy from the record holder (broker, bank or other nominee) giving you the right to vote the shares.
Do I need a ticket to be admitted to the Annual Meeting?
You will need your proof of identification along with either your Notice or proof of stock ownership to enter the Annual Meeting. If your shares are held beneficially in the name of a broker, bank or other nominee and you wish to be admitted to attend the Annual Meeting, you must present proof of your ownership of Brixmor Property Group Inc. stock, such as a bank or brokerage account statement.
Do I also need to present identification to be admitted to the Annual Meeting?
Yes, all stockholders must present a form of personal identification in order to be admitted to the Annual Meeting.
No cameras, recording equipment, electronic devices, large bags, briefcases or packages will be permitted in the Annual Meeting.
Could other matters be decided at the Annual Meeting?
At the date this proxy statement went to press, we did not know of any matters that may be properly presented at the Annual Meeting other than those referred to in this proxy statement.
If other matters are properly presented at the Annual Meeting for consideration and you are a stockholder of record and have submitted a proxy card, the persons named in your proxy card will have the discretion to vote on those matters for you.
Who will pay for the cost of this proxy solicitation?
We will pay the cost of soliciting proxies. Proxies may be solicited on our behalf by directors, officers or employees (for no additional compensation) in person or by telephone, electronic transmission and facsimile transmission. Brokers, banks and other nominees will be requested to solicit proxies or authorizations from beneficial owners and will be reimbursed for their reasonable expenses.

PROPOSAL NO. 1—ELECTION OF DIRECTORS
Upon the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee, nine nominees will be proposed for election as directors at the Annual Meeting to hold office until our next annual meeting of stockholders and until their successors are duly elected and qualify. Our nominees were selected by the Board, based on the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee. All nine nominees currently serve on our board of directors. All of the nominees are willing to serve as
directors but, if any of them should decline or be unable to act as a director, the individuals designated in the proxy cards as proxies will exercise the discretionary authority provided to vote for the election of such substitute nominee selected by our board of directors, unless the Board alternatively acts to reduce the size of the Board or maintain a vacancy on the Board in accordance with our bylaws. The Board has no reason to believe that any such nominees will be unable or unwilling to serve.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
The Board of Directors and Certain Governance Matters
The business and affairs of the Company are managed under the direction of our Board, as provided by Maryland law, and the Company conducts its business through meetings of the Board and its three standing committees: the Audit Committee, the Compensation Committee and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee.
We have structured our corporate governance in a manner we believe closely aligns our interests with those of our stockholders. Notable features of our corporate governance include:

our Board is not classified and each of our directors is subject to re-election annually, and we will not classify our Board in the future without the approval of our stockholders;

our directors may be removed by the vote of a majority of the votes entitled to be cast and our Board may not increase the vote required to remove a director without stockholder approval;

we have fully independent audit, compensation and nominating and corporate governance committees, and our independent directors meet regularly in executive sessions without the presence of our corporate officers or non-independent directors;

our Board has a non-executive Chairman and a Lead Independent Director;

all members of our audit committee are “financial experts” as defined by applicable SEC regulations;

each senior officer (our chief executive officer, chief financial officer and each executive vice president) is expected to own common stock or common stock equivalents
equal in market value to at least three to six times his or her annual base salary, depending on his or her position;

our executive officers and members of our board are prohibited from engaging in any hedging transactions with respect to equity securities of the Company held by them, which includes the purchase of any financial instrument designed to hedge or offset any decrease in the market value of such equity securities;

our directors are elected by a vote of a majority of votes cast in uncontested elections, and in the event that an incumbent director fails to receive a majority of votes cast in an uncontested election, such incumbent director is required to submit his or her resignation to the Board, which will decide what action to take on the resignation, and the decision will be publicly disclosed.

we have opted out of the Maryland business combination and control share acquisition statutes, and in the future will not opt in without stockholder approval; and

we do not have a stockholder rights plan, and we will not adopt a stockholder rights plan in the future without stockholder approval;

we have instituted a mandatory retirement age of 75;

stockholders holding a majority of outstanding shares have the right to amend, alter or repeal our bylaws, or adopt new bylaws, at a duly called meeting of stockholders; and

our Board views its diversity as an important strength, with women currently constituting more than 20% of its members.
Director Independence and Independence Determinations
Under our Corporate Governance Guidelines and NYSE rules, a director is not independent unless the Board affirmatively determines that he or she does not have a direct or indirect material relationship with the Company or any of its subsidiaries.
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines define independence in accordance with the independence
definition in the current NYSE corporate governance rules for listed companies. Our Corporate Governance Guidelines require the Board to review the independence of all directors at least annually.
In the event a director has a relationship with the Company that is relevant to his or her independence and is not addressed by the objective tests set forth in
10

TABLE OF CONTENTS
the NYSE independence definition, the Board will determine, considering all relevant facts and circumstances, whether such relationship is material.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee undertook its annual review of director independence and made a recommendation to our Board regarding director independence. As a result of this review, our Board affirmatively determined that each of Messrs. Berman, Deering, Dickson, Hurwitz, Rahm and Schreiber and Mses. Crosland and Sulzberger is independent for purposes of all applicable New York Stock Exchange standards,
including with respect to committee service. Our Board has also determined that each of Messrs. Berman, Deering and Schreiber and Ms. Sulzberger is “independent” for purposes of Section 10A(m)(3) and each of Messrs. Dickson, Hurwitz and Rahm is “independent” for purposes of Section 10C(b) of the Exchange Act.
In making its independence determinations, the Board considered and reviewed all information known to it (including information identified through annual directors’ questionnaires).
Board Structure
Our Board is led by the Chairman. The Chief Executive Officer position is separate from the Chairman position. We believe that the separation of the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer positions is appropriate corporate governance for us at this time. Accordingly, Mr. Schreiber serves as Chairman, while Mr. Taylor serves as our Chief Executive Officer and President. Our Board believes that this structure best
encourages the free and open dialogue of competing views and provides for strong checks and balances. Additionally, Mr. Schreiber’s attention to Board and committee matters allows the Chief Executive Officer to focus more specifically on overseeing the Company’s day to day operations as well as strategic opportunities and planning.

The charter of the Compensation Committee permits the committee to delegate any or all of its authority to one or more subcommittees and to delegate to one or more officers of the Company the authority to make awards to any non-Section 16 officer of the Company under the Company’s incentive-compensation or other equity-based plan, subject to compliance with the plan and the laws of the state of the Company’s jurisdiction.
The Compensation Committee has the authority under its charter to retain outside consultants or advisors, as it deems necessary or advisable.
In 2016, Daniel B.

Specifically, he made recommendations to the Compensation Committee regarding executive salaries, equity awards, the performance targets used under our annual bonus plan and the amounts of annual cash incentive awards. Mr. Hurwitz did not participate in deliberations regarding his own compensation.

All executive compensation services provided by FPL were conducted under the direction or authority of the Compensation Committee, and all work performed by FPL was pre-approved by the Compensation Committee. Neither FPL nor any of its affiliates maintains any other direct or indirect business relationships with the Company. As requested by the Compensation Committee, in 2016, FPL’s services to the Compensation Committee included preparing analyses and recommendations of senior executive compensation levels as compared to the Public REIT Peer Group (See “Compensation Discussion and Analysis—Compensation Determination Process” for a description of the Public REIT Peer Group) and recommending executive compensation program changes, including to the annual cash incentive awards under our annual bonus plan.

recommending members of the Board to serve on the committees of the Board and, where appropriate, recommending the removal of any member of any committee.
Oversight of Risk Management
The Board exercises oversight of risk management related to us and our business and accomplishes this oversight through the regular reporting by the Audit Committee. The Audit Committee represents the Board by periodically reviewing our accounting, reporting and financial practices, including the integrity of our financial statements, the surveillance of administrative and financial controls and our compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
Through its regular meetings with management, including the finance, legal, and internal audit functions, the Audit Committee reviews and discusses all significant areas of our business and summarizes for the Board all areas of risk and the appropriate mitigating factors. In addition, our Board receives periodic detailed operating performance reviews from management.
Executive Sessions
Executive sessions, which are meetings of the non-management members of the Board, are regularly scheduled throughout the year. In addition, at least once a year, the independent directors meet in a private session that excludes management and non-independent directors. In accordance with our
Corporate Governance, the independent directors have elected Mr. Rahm from among themselves to serve as the Presiding Independent Director to call and preside at executive sessions. The Audit Committee also meets regularly in executive session.
Committee Charters and Corporate Governance Guidelines
Our commitment to good corporate governance is reflected in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which describe the Board’s views on a wide range of governance topics. These Corporate Governance Guidelines are reviewed from time to time by the Board and, to the extent deemed appropriate in light of emerging practices, revised accordingly, upon recommendation to and approval by the Board.
Our Corporate Governance Guidelines, our Audit, Compensation and Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee charters and other corporate governance information are available on the Governance page of the Investors section on our website at www.brixmor.com. Any stockholder also may request them in print, without charge, by contacting the Secretary at Brixmor Property Group Inc., 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017.
Stock Ownership Guidelines
The Board implemented stock ownership guidelines effective August 11, 2015. These guidelines are included in our Corporate Governance Guidelines referenced above. Each senior officer (our chief executive officer, chief financial officer and each executive vice president) is expected to own common stock or common stock equivalents equal in market value to a specified multiple of his or her annual base salary. The guideline for our chief executive officer is six times his or her base salary, for our chief financial
officer is four times his or her base salary, and for the other senior officers is three times his or her base salary. New officers, including our Chief Executive Officer and President, Chief Financial Officer and Chief Investment Officer, that are subject to the ownership guidelines are expected to be in compliance by the fifth anniversary of their appointment to the position that results in application of the ownership guidelines. Each of our current senior officers, other than our Chief Financial Officer and Chief Investment Officer,
14

TABLE OF CONTENTS
who have until May 2021 to own the requisite shares of common stock or common stock equivalents under the ownership guidelines, currently owns shares of common stock or common stock equivalents equal to or greater than their respective ownership guideline.
The Board has also established common stock ownership guidelines for our independent directors. Each independent director is expected to own shares of our common stock or common stock equivalents with an aggregate market value not less than five times the cash portion of such independent director’s
annual board fee for the preceding year (exclusive of committee or chairperson fees) within five years of joining the Board.
For purposes of these stock ownership guidelines, (i) restricted stock and (ii) earned restricted stock units and LTIP units, which in each case are only subject to a time vesting requirement, shall be counted toward such requirement. The Board may, in its sole discretion, grant exceptions to the above guidelines.
Code of Business Conduct and Ethics and Code of Conduct for Senior Financial Officers
We have a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics which applies to all directors, officers and employees of the Company and a Code of Conduct for Senior Financial Officers which applies to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer and principal accounting officer or controller and persons performing similar functions. Each of these codes is available on our internet website www.brixmor.com under Investors: Governance. The Code of Business Conduct and Ethics sets forth our policies and expectations on a number of topics, including conflicts of interest, compliance with laws (including insider trading laws), use of our assets and business conduct and fair dealing. The Code of Conduct for Senior Financial Officers satisfies the requirements for a code of ethics, as defined by Item 406 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC. The Company will disclose within four business days any substantive changes in or any waivers of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics or Code of Conduct for Senior Financial Officers granted to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions, by posting such information on our website as set forth above rather than by filing a Form 8-K.
As described in our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics, the Company’s directors, officers and employees are provided with three avenues through which they can report violations or suspected violations with respect to accounting or auditing matters: a toll-free phone number, in writing, and a website. The toll-free phone number for directors, officers and employees is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Directors, officers and employees may report any violation of the Code of Business Conduct and Ethics that does not concern accounting or auditing matters either in writing or in person. Violations or suspected violations of the Code of Conduct for Senior Financial Officers must be reported to the Company’s General Counsel or the Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors and may be made in person, in writing or through a toll-free phone number. Directors, officers and employees can choose to remain anonymous in reporting violations or suspected violations. In addition, we maintain a formal non-retaliation policy that prohibits action or retaliation against any director, officer or employee who makes a report in good faith even if the facts alleged are not confirmed by subsequent investigation.
Director Nomination Process
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee weighs the characteristics, experience, independence and skills of potential candidates for election to the Board and recommends nominees for election as directors to the Board. In considering candidates for the Board, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also assesses overall Board composition considerations, including the importance of diversified Board membership, in terms of both the individuals involved and their various experiences and areas of expertise (although the Board does not have a formal diversity policy), compliance with New York Stock Exchange and SEC
board and committee independence requirements and the size of the Board. As the application of these factors involves the exercise of judgment, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee does not have a standard set of fixed qualifications that is applicable to all director candidates, although the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee does at a minimum assess each candidate’s strength of character, mature judgment, familiarity with our business and industry, independence of thought and his or her ability to work collegially with the other members of the Board. In identifying prospective director candidates, the
15

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may seek referrals from other members of the Board, management, stockholders and other sources. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee also may, but need not, retain a search firm in order to assist it in identifying candidates to serve as directors of the Company. The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee utilizes the same criteria for evaluating candidates regardless of the source of the referral.
When considering director candidates, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee seeks individuals with backgrounds and qualities that, when combined with those of our incumbent directors, provide a blend of skills and experience to further enhance the Board’s effectiveness.
Ms. Crosland is standing for re-election by stockholders for the first time at the Annual Meeting. Ms. Crosland was originally identified as a director nominee by management. In connection with its annual recommendation of a slate of nominees, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee may also assess the contributions of those directors recommended for re-election in the context of the Board evaluation process and other perceived needs of the Board.
When considering whether the directors and nominees have the experience, qualifications, attributes and skills, taken as a whole, to enable the Board to satisfy its oversight responsibilities effectively in light of the Company’s business and structure, the Board focused primarily on the information discussed in each of the board member’s biographical information set forth above. Each of the Company’s directors possesses high ethical standards, acts with integrity and exercises careful, mature judgment. Each is committed to employing his skills and abilities to aid the long-term interests of the stakeholders of the Company. In addition, our directors are knowledgeable and experienced in one or more business, governmental, or civic endeavors,
which further qualifies them for service as members of the Board. A significant number of our directors possess experience in owning and managing public and privately held enterprises and are familiar with corporate finance and strategic business planning activities that are unique to publicly-traded companies like ours. Finally, many of our directors possess substantial expertise in advising and managing companies in various segments of the real estate industry.
In 2017, this process resulted in the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee’s recommendation to the Board, and the Board’s nomination, of the nine incumbent directors named in this proxy statement and proposed for election by you at the upcoming Annual Meeting.
The Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will consider director candidates recommended by stockholders. Any recommendation submitted to the Corporate Secretary should be in writing and should include any supporting material the stockholder considers appropriate in support of that recommendation, but must include information that would be required under the rules of the SEC to be included in a proxy statement soliciting proxies for the election of such candidate and a written consent of the candidate to serve as one of our directors if elected. Stockholders wishing to propose a candidate for consideration may do so by submitting the above information to the attention of the Secretary, Brixmor Property Group Inc., 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017. All recommendations for nomination received by the Corporate Secretary will be presented to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee for its consideration.
Stockholders may also nominate qualified candidates for the Board by complying with the advance notification, timeliness, consent, information and other requirements of our Bylaws regarding director nominations. These requirements are also described under the caption “Stockholder Proposals for the 2018 Annual Meeting.”
Communications with the Board
As described in the Corporate Governance Guidelines, stockholders and other interested parties who wish to communicate with a member or members of the Board, including the Chairman, the Presiding Independent Director or chairperson of the Audit, Compensation, or Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees or to any committee of the Board, or to the non-management or independent directors as a group, may do so by (1) addressing such
communications or concerns to the Board of Directors or any such individual directors or group or committee of directors by either name or title and sending it by mail to Brixmor Property Group Inc., c/o General Counsel, 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, New York 10017 or (2) sending an email to PresidingIndependentDirector@brixmor.com.

PROPOSAL NO. 2—RATIFICATION OF
INDEPENDENT REGISTERED
PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
The Audit Committee has selected Deloitte & Touche LLP to serve as our independent registered public accounting firm for 2017. Deloitte & Touche LLP has served as our independent registered public accounting firm since May 2015.
Although ratification is not required by our Bylaws or otherwise, the Board is submitting the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP to our stockholders for ratification because we value our stockholders’ views on the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. If our stockholders fail to ratify the selection, it will be considered as notice to the Board and the Audit Committee to consider the selection of a different firm. Even if the selection is ratified, the Audit Committee, in its discretion, may select a different independent registered public accounting firm at any time during the year if it determines that such a change would be in the best interests of the Company.
Representatives of Deloitte & Touche LLP are expected to be present at the Annual Meeting. They also will have the opportunity to make a statement if they desire to do so, and they are expected to be available to respond to appropriate questions.
The shares represented by your proxy will be voted for the ratification of the selection of Deloitte & Touche LLP unless you specify otherwise.
Ernst & Young LLP was previously our principal accountants. Ernst & Young was dismissed on May 6, 2015. The decision to change accountants was approved by our Audit Committee. During the interim period between December 31, 2014 and May 6, 2015, there were no disagreements between us and Ernst & Young on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures which, if not resolved to Ernst & Young’s satisfaction, would have caused Ernst & Young to make reference to the matter of the disagreement in connection with their reports.

Compensation Discussion and Analysis
Impact of Management Changes on our 2016 Compensation Disclosure
In 2016, Michael A. Carroll, our former chief executive officer, and Michael V. Pappagallo, our former president and chief financial officer, separated from the Company following the completion of the Audit Committee’s review of certain accounting and financial reporting matters (the “Audit Committee Review”). Following these separations, the Board of Directors appointed Mr. Hurwitz as interim President and Chief Executive Officer and Mr. Barry Lefkowitz as interim Chief Financial Officer. Messrs. Hurwitz and Lefkowitz served in an interim capacity until May 2016, at which time Mr. Taylor was appointed Chief Executive Officer and President and Ms. Aman was appointed Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer.
In addition, Mr. Horgan was appointed as Executive Vice President, Chief Investment Officer, in May 2016 and Michael Hyun, our former Executive Vice President, Chief Investment Officer, separated from the Company effective June 2016.
As a result of the separations and appointments in 2016, we have ten named executive officers (“NEOs”) for 2016. Five of our NEOs—Messrs. Taylor, Horgan, Siegel and Finnegan and Ms. Aman—are currently employed by the Company (the “Current Officers”); three of our NEOs—Messrs. Carroll, Pappagallo and Hyun—held permanent positions for part of 2016 but were no longer employed by the Company as of December 31, 2016 (the “Former Officers”); and two of our NEOs—Messrs. Hurwitz and Lefkowitz—held interim positions for part of 2016 but were no longer employed by the Company as of December 31, 2016 (the “Former Interim Officers”).
In the narrative and tabular presentation below, we have delineated between the Current Officers, the Former Officers and the Former Interim Officers, and provided additional disclosure where appropriate regarding the impact of 2017 compensation arrangements on our 2016 compensation disclosure.

Company Performance Versus Metrics
Brixmor’s annual bonus program features multiple performance metrics designed to pay for performance. The financial metrics used are key indicators of the executive team’s effectiveness at leading the broader team in the management of our properties (NOI) and our overall business (adjusted EBITDA).
While the LTI program is geared toward relative and absolute total shareholder return (TSR) over a three
year period, a portion of the grant under the LTI plan in 2016 included a one-year performance period for certain financial metrics (adjusted EBITDA) and individual goals.
The following illustrates the achievement level of performance versus financial metrics for Brixmor’s 2016 annual bonus plan and long-term incentive plan.

Executive Compensation Philosophy and Corporate Governance
Our compensation philosophy is based on best practices, and our corporate governance standards are designed to align executive compensation with long-term stockholder interests.
What we do:

Structure our Board with experienced leadership including a non-executive Chairman, a Lead Independent Director and knowledgeable committee chairs.

The Compensation Committee conducts regular reviews of compensation strategies and programs, including our compensation risk profile, ensuring policies and programs do not create risks that are reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company.

The Compensation Committee directly retains the compensation consultant, FPL Associates, and the consultant performs no other services for management.

Compensation programs are designed to reflect our culture of pay for performance—the majority of the NEOs’ Target pay is performance driven.

We have stock ownership guidelines for our executive officers and directors.

Ensure our LTI program drives long term value creation and aligns interests of executives and stockholders:
-
100% of LTI must be earned—no component is received by executives based solely on time with the company.
-
Once awards are earned, vesting occurs over multiple years as a form of retention.
-
Dividends on restricted stock units are only paid on earned units and accrue during the vesting period.
-
Program contains a claw back provision.
What we do not do:
X
We do not offer excessive perquisites or special health and welfare plans to executives.

Policy prohibits NEOs and Board members from engaging in any hedging transactions with respect to equity securities of the Company held by them, which includes the purchase of any financial instrument designed to hedge or offset any decrease in the market value of such equity securities.
Executive Compensation Objectives and Philosophy
Our primary executive compensation objectives are to:

attract, retain and motivate senior management leaders who are capable of advancing our mission and strategy and ultimately maintain and grow our long-term equity value;

reward senior management in a manner aligned with our financial performance and individual goals; and

align senior management’s interests with our equity owners’ long-term interests through equity participation and ownership.
To achieve our objectives, we deliver executive compensation through a combination of the following components: (1) base salary; (2) annual cash incentive compensation; (3) long-term equity compensation; (4) other employee benefits and perquisites; and (5) severance benefits.
Say-on-Pay and Say-on-Frequency Votes
Each year, the Compensation Committee considers the outcome of the stockholder advisory vote on executive compensation when making future decisions relating to the compensation of our named executive officers and our executive compensation program and policies. In 2016, stockholders showed strong support of our executive compensation programs, with 99.5% of the votes cast for the approval of the “say-on-pay” proposal at our 2016 annual meeting of stockholders. The Compensation Committee believes that its commitment to continuing the alignment of our named executive officers’ compensation with the Company’s performance resulted in almost unanimous stockholder support.
In light of the voting results with respect to the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation at the 2014 annual meeting of stockholders, the Board decided that Brixmor will hold an advisory vote on the compensation of named executive officers at each annual meeting of stockholders until the next required vote on the frequency of stockholder votes on executive compensation. As the Dodd-Frank Act requires that such stockholder votes on frequency be held at least
once every six years, we currently expect the next stockholder vote on frequency to occur at the Company’s 2020 annual meeting.
Compensation Determination Process
Role of the Compensation Committee and Management
The Compensation Committee of our Board is responsible for determining the compensation of our Chief Executive Officer and our other named executive officers. At the beginning of each performance cycle, the Compensation Committee approves financial goals designed to align executive pay with company performance and stockholder interests, provide competitive pay opportunities dependent on company performance, retain talent, grow stockholder value and mitigate material risk. The Compensation Committee has the authority to engage its own advisors to assist in carrying out its responsibilities.
In 2016, Mr. Hurwitz, our interim President and Chief Executive Officer, worked with the Compensation Committee in managing our executive compensation program and he attended meetings of the Compensation Committee. Because of his daily involvement with the executive team during his interim tenure, our interim President and Chief Executive Officer made recommendations to the Compensation Committee regarding compensation for the named executive officers other than himself.
Role of the Compensation Consultant
For 2016, we engaged a compensation consultant, FPL, to assist us in evaluating the elements and levels of our executive compensation, including base salaries, annual cash incentive awards and annual equity-based incentives. All executive compensation services provided by FPL were conducted under the direction or authority of the Compensation Committee, and all work performed by FPL was pre-approved by the Compensation Committee. FPL’s services to the Compensation Committee included (1) reviewing size and performance statistics for the Company and the Public REIT Peer Group (2) preparing analyses and recommendations of the Company’s five highest executive compensation levels as compared to the Public REIT Peer Group (3) preparing competitive benchmarking on an individual and pay component basis and (4) analyzing executive compensation program changes at peer firms, including to the long-term incentive program design.
Use of Comparative Market Data
As requested by the Compensation Committee, in 2016, FPL, using their proprietary database that reflects information collected primarily via FPL projects, FPL surveys, and public filings, focused on six compensation components: (1) base salary, (2) target

TABLE OF CONTENTS
annual bonus, (3) actual annual bonus, (4) target total annual cash compensation, (5) long-term incentive and (6) total remuneration. The Compensation Committee, in its discretion in setting the compensation elements and levels for the named executive officers, took this data into consideration. Actual compensation of our named executive officers may be higher or lower than the compensation for executives in similar positions at comparable
companies based on the performance, skills, experience and specific role of the named executive officer in the organization.
The Public REIT Peer Group consists of 12 companies comparable to Brixmor in terms of property focus, size and/or geography. In 2016, the Public REIT Peer Group included:
Public REIT Peer Group
AvalonBay Communities, Inc.
Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc.
CBL & Associates Properties, Inc.
Kimco Realty Corporation
DDR Corp.
Macerich Company
Digital Realty Trust, Inc.
Regency Centers Corporation
Equity One, Inc.

Federal Realty Investment Trust
Weingarten Realty Investors
Compensation Elements
Base Salary
Base salary compensates our executives for performing the day-to-day requirements of their positions and provides them with a minimum level of cash income predictability and stability with respect to a portion of their total compensation. We believe that the level of a named executive officer’s base salary should reflect that named executive officer’s performance, experience and breadth of responsibilities, salaries for similar positions within the community and in our industry generally, and any
other factors relevant to that particular job. The minimum base salary payable to each named executive officer is set by the terms of an employment agreement entered into with each named executive officer, the material terms of which are summarized in the “Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table— Employment Agreements with Our Named Executive Officers” below. Each named executive officer is reviewed annually and is eligible for a discretionary annual merit increase. Base salaries may also be adjusted at other times to deal with competitive pressures or changes in job responsibilities.
The following table reflects the base salaries of our NEOs that are Current Officers at the end of 2016.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Annual Cash Incentive Compensation
In order to motivate our named executive officers to achieve near-term performance goals and tie a portion of their cash compensation to actual performance, each named executive officer is eligible for annual cash incentive awards under our annual bonus plan (“Annual Bonus Plan”) based on achievement of corporate financial targets and individual qualitative goals, each set at the beginning of a fiscal year, with the threshold, target and maximum payout amounts based on a percentage of the named executive officer’s base salary. The Current Officers’ threshold, target and maximum payout amounts were as follows based on the following percentages provided in their respective employment agreements.
Name
Threshold
Target

James M. Taylor(1) 100% 125% 200%

Pursuant to their employment agreements, for CY2016, the annual bonus for each of Messrs. Taylor and Horgan and Ms. Aman would in no event be less than target level on a prorated basis.
Corporate Financial Metrics
For fiscal 2016, the Annual Bonus Plan was based on our achievement of two corporate financial metrics, expressed on a per share basis: net operating income and adjusted EBITDA. We calculate net operating income as total property revenues (base rent, ancillary and other, expense reimbursements and percentage rents) less direct property operating expenses (operating costs, real estate taxes and provision for doubtful accounts). Net operating income excludes corporate level income (including management, transaction, and other fees), lease termination fees, straight-line rental income, amortization of above- and below-market rent and tenant inducements, straight-line ground rent expense and the Company’s unconsolidated joint venture, Montecito Marketplace. Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA (the sum of our net income (loss) in accordance with GAAP before interest expense, federal and state taxes and depreciation and amortization), as adjusted for (i) gain (loss) on disposition of operating properties, (ii) impairment of real estate assets and real estate equity investments, (iii) gain (loss) on extinguishment of debt, (iv) transaction expenses and (v) other items that we believe are not indicative of our operating performance.
The Annual Bonus Plan for 2016 was structured to reward Messrs. Taylor, Horgan, Siegel and Finnegan and Ms. Aman based on the foregoing two corporate financial metrics (75% of the bonus) and based on individual performance criteria (25% of the bonus). Mr. Hyun was not an employee as of December 31, 2016 but was paid a bonus for 2016 pursuant to his employment agreement based on target performance and prorated through June 1, 2016. Pursuant to their employment agreements, Messrs. Taylor and Horgan
and Ms. Aman received bonuses with respect to 2016 performance prorated from their May 20, 2016 start dates. Mr. Taylor was also paid a signing bonus in 2016 pursuant to his employment agreement. The Former Officers were not paid an annual bonus for 2016, and the Former Interim Officers were not part of the Annual Bonus Plan in 2016.
Individual Qualitative Goals of Current Officers
Because Messrs. Taylor and Horgan and Ms. Aman were not employed by the Company at the beginning of 2016, they did not have pre-established goals in 2016. Instead, the Compensation Committee evaluated the achievement of their individual objectives for CY2016 based on their overall performance during 2016. Mr. Siegel’s individual goals in 2016 included his assistance in connection with completing certain critical tenant leases, his handling of the litigation and governmental investigations following the completion of the Audit Committee Review, his handling of matters in connection with management changes, his assistance in connection with secondary equity offerings and public debt financings, effective cost saving renewals of the Company’s insurance programs, and his oversight and resolution of various other legal matters. Mr. Finnegan’s individual goals in 2016 included his oversight of the execution of new and renewal leases, increasing leased occupancy, the addition of new retailers to the portfolio, and various other leasing matters. In connection with the Annual Bonus Plan for 2016, the Compensation Committee determined that Messrs. Taylor, Siegel and Finnegan and Ms. Aman achieved maximum performance with respect to their individual performance goals and Mr. Horgan achieved between target and maximum performance with respect to his individual performance goals.

Long-Term Equity Compensation
The Company grants awards under its 2013 Omnibus Incentive Plan (the “Equity Incentive Plan”) with performance measurement primarily focused on total shareholder return over a three year period. Such equity-based awards are granted in the form of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) or, at the election of the executive, LTIP Units, which are described below (in CY2016, executives did not have the option to elect LTIP Units). All of our NEOs who were granted equity-based awards in 2016 received RSUs. The Board believes that the Equity Incentive Plan and the
awards made thereunder align the Company’s long-term incentive awards with competitive practices and stockholder interests and support the objectives of long-term value creation.
In 2016, the aggregate number of performance-based RSUs granted to our named executive officers assuming that the target level of performance is achieved (with the actual number of units to be earned based on the performance criteria described below) was 50,077 for Mr. Taylor, 24,342 for Ms. Aman, 23,667 for Mr. Horgan 49,741 for Mr. Siegel, 18,817 for Mr. Finnegan and 51,075 for
28

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Mr. Hyun. In addition to performance-based RSUs, Mr. Taylor, Ms. Aman and Mr. Horgan were awarded 203,590, 58,892 and 47,911, respectively, one-time grants of time-vesting RSUs (the “Time-Vesting RSUs”). Mr. Taylor’s Time-Vesting RSUs vest in three equal tranches on January 1, 2017, January 1, 2018 and January 1, 2019. Each of Ms. Aman’s and Mr. Horgan’s Time-Vesting RSUs vest in five equal tranches on May 20, 2017 through May 20, 2021.
The RSUs, other than the Time-Vesting RSUs, are each subject to the performance-based and service-based vesting and forfeiture conditions described below. The Time-Vesting RSUs are subject to the service-based vesting and forfeiture conditions described below.
Terms of the RSUs and LTIP Units
In order to facilitate the transition to equity-based awards following the IPO, the initial grants of RSUs and LTIP Units (collectively, the “units”) made in 2014 were divided into three tranches, with the award more heavily weighted to the third tranche, which has a three-year performance period. The first and second tranches were measured over one-year and two-year performance periods, respectively. The 2015 and 2016 grants of units were divided into a one-year performance period and a three-year performance period, with the awards more heavily weighted to the three-year performance period.
Under the terms of the award agreements, each executive can achieve a threshold, target, and maximum number of units in respect of each tranche or performance period. The number of units actually earned for each tranche or performance period is determined based on actual performance during the specified performance period, and the earned units are then further subject to service-based vesting conditions. During 2016 the performance periods for the third tranche of the 2014 award and the one-year performance period of the 2016 award were completed. The tranches or performance periods that were completed in 2016, as well as the three-year performance period for the 2016 award, are described in more detail below.
Third Tranche of 2014 Award and Three-Year Performance Period of 2016 Award
The performance criteria for the third tranche of the 2014 award and the three-year performance period of the 2016 award, which comprises half of the total 2014 award grant and 66 2/3% of the 2016 award grant, respectively, are relative total shareholder return in relation to a peer index (“Relative TSR”) (60% of such units), absolute total shareholder return (“Absolute TSR”) (20% of such units), and a company-wide performance objective (20% of such units). The performance period for the third tranche of the 2014 award began October 29, 2013 and ended December 31, 2016, while the three-year performance period of the 2016 award began January 1, 2016 and ends December 31, 2018. The total number of units that are earned based on the relative and absolute total shareholder return are each based on an achievement factor which, in each case, ranges from a 0% payout for below threshold performance, to 50% for threshold performance, to 100% for target performance, and up to 150% for maximum performance. For actual performance between the specified threshold, target and maximum levels, the resulting achievement percentage will be adjusted on a linear basis. For 2014 units that are earned, 50% became vested as of February 28, 2017, the date performance for the three-year performance period was confirmed by the Compensation Committee, 25% will vest on January 1, 2018, and the remaining 25% will vest on January 1, 2019, in each case subject to continued employment.
For 2016 units that are earned, 50% will vest as of the date performance is confirmed by the Compensation Committee following December 31, 2018, 25% will vest on January 1, 2020, and the remaining 25% will vest on January 1, 2021, in each case subject to continued employment.
For the Relative TSR component, we use the FTSE NAREIT Equity Shopping Center Index (the “Index”) as the peer index. No units are earned for below-threshold performance and the threshold, target, and maximum performance levels (measured on a compounded annual basis over the relevant measurement period) are:

For the third tranche of the 2014 award, the Company achieved the company-wide performance objective and achieved Relative TSR between target and maximum performance (102.5% of target) and Absolute TSR between target and maximum performance (120% of target).
One-Year Performance Period of 2016 Award
The performance criteria for the one-year performance period of the 2016 award, which comprises one-third of the total 2016 award grant, are adjusted EBITDA per share (75% of such units) and satisfactory individual performance (25% of such units), in each case for the period beginning January 1, 2016 and ending December 31, 2016. The total number of units that are earned based on adjusted EBITDA per share is based on an achievement factor
which, in each case, ranges from a 0% payout for below threshold performance, to 50% for threshold performance, to 100% for target performance, and up to 150% for maximum performance. For actual performance between the specified threshold, target and maximum levels, the resulting achievement percentage will be adjusted on a linear basis. For units that are earned, 50% became vested as of February 28, 2017, the date performance for the one-year performance period was confirmed by the Compensation Committee, 25% will vest on January 1, 2018 and the remaining 25% will vest on January 1, 2019, in each case subject to continued employment.
The table below sets forth the threshold, target, and maximum performance goals, on a per share basis, for the corporate performance criteria for the one-year performance period of the 2016 award.

For the performance period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016, the Company achieved adjusted EBITDA per share of  $2.87, resulting in an achievement factor of 150% of the target amount. The Compensation Committee considered the performance of each of the Current Officers in CY2016 and determined that they each had satisfactory individual performance to entitle them to the individual component under the one-year performance period of the 2016 award.
Forfeiture of Units
In general, unvested units are forfeited as of the final calculation date applicable to any award to the extent performance criteria do not result in the units becoming earned and as of any termination of employment. Upon a termination of employment by the Company without cause, or a resignation by the executive that is as a result of good reason or a retirement (each as defined in the award agreements), a portion of the units will be eligible to become earned and vested, based on actual
performance through the date of termination (or target performance, in the case of company-wide performance objectives or individual performance criteria) and subject to proration based on the number of days during the applicable performance period that the executive was employed.
Upon a change in control during any performance period, a portion of the units will become earned and vested based on actual performance through the date of termination (or target performance, in the case of company-wide performance objectives or individual performance criteria).
LTIP Units
LTIP Units are a class of partnership units that are intended to qualify as “profits interests” in the OP for federal income tax purposes that, subject to certain conditions, including vesting, are convertible by the holder into OP Units. LTIP Units initially will not have full parity, on a per unit basis, with OP Units with respect to ordinary and liquidating distributions. Upon
30

TABLE OF CONTENTS
the occurrence of specified events, LTIP Units can over time achieve full parity with OP Units, at which time vested LTIP Units may be converted into OP Units on a one-for-one basis. Holders of OP Units (other than the Company, BPG Subsidiary Inc. or the General Partner) may, in turn, redeem their OP Units for cash based upon the market value of an equivalent number of shares of the Company’s common stock or, at the General Partner’s election, exchange their OP Units for shares of the Company’s common stock on a one-for-one basis subject to customary conversion rate adjustments for splits, unit distributions and reclassifications.
Other Employee Benefits & Perquisites
We provide to all our employees, including our named executive officers, broad-based benefits that are intended to attract and retain employees while providing them with retirement and health and welfare security. Our named executive officers are eligible to receive the same benefits, including life and health benefits and vacation, holiday and sick time that are available to all employees. Our employees, including the named executive officers, are also eligible to participate in a tax-qualified 401(k) plan. Employees may contribute to the 401(k), on a pre-tax basis, between 0% and 50% of their annual pay, up to the maximum allowable amount permitted by the IRS, and we match 100% of the first 3% of the employee’s annual pay in order to encourage employee participation. Our named executive officers also
receive supplemental long-term disability coverage, medical and dental benefits and, in limited circumstances, modest perquisites such as automobile use. Messrs. Taylor and Horgan and Ms. Aman also received certain relocation expenses in connection with their recent hires by the Company. These other employee benefits and perquisites are reflected in the “All Other Compensation” column of the “Summary Compensation Table” below and the accompanying footnote. The board believes that providing modest perquisites is both customary among our peers and necessary for attracting and retaining talent.
Severance Benefits
The board believes that severance arrangements are necessary to attract and retain the talent required for our long-term success, and views our severance arrangements as recruitment and retention devices that help secure the continued employment and dedication of our named executive officers, including when we are considering strategic alternatives. Pursuant to the terms of their employment agreements, each of our named executive officers has severance protection in the case of specified qualifying termination events. The severance payments under these agreements are contingent upon the affected executive’s compliance with specified post-termination restrictive covenants. See “Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control” for descriptions of payments to be made under these agreements.
Compensation Actions Taken During 2017
Base Salaries
In February 2017, the Compensation Committee determined that with respect to our named executive officers that are current employees, base salaries for 2017 would remain unchanged from 2016, other than Mr. Finnegan, whose base salary for 2017 would increase to $375,000.
Equity-Based Awards
In February 2017, the Compensation Committee approved annual equity-based awards for our named executive officers that are current employees under the Equity Incentive Plan. The value of RSUs granted to each NEO, assuming that the target level of performance is achieved (with the actual value of units to be earned based on the performance criteria described below), is $3,000,000 for Mr. Taylor, $1,000,000 for Ms. Aman, $1,000,000 for Mr. Horgan, $925,000 for Mr. Siegel, and $500,000 for Mr. Finnegan.
The RSUs are each subject to the performance-based and service-based vesting and forfeiture conditions described below.
Vesting Conditions Applicable to RSUs
Under the terms of the RSUs, the number of RSUs actually earned is determined based on performance during a specified performance period, and the earned RSUs are then further subject to service-based vesting conditions. The RSUs have one-year and three-year performance-based vesting conditions.
The performance criteria for the three-year performance component of the 2017 award, which comprises two-thirds of the total award grant, are a relative total shareholder return in relation to a peer index (“Relative TSR”) (60% of such RSUs), an absolute total shareholder return (“Absolute TSR”) (20% of such RSUs), in each case for the period beginning January 1, 2017 and ending December 31, 2019, and a return on invested capital equal to or in excess of 7.75% as of December 31, 2019 (20% of such RSUs). The total number of RSUs that are earned based on the relative and absolute total shareholder return are each based on an achievement factor which, in each case, ranges from a 0% payout for below threshold performance, to 50% for threshold performance, to 100% for target performance, and up to 150% for

maximum performance. For actual performance between the specified threshold, target and maximum levels, the resulting achievement percentage will be adjusted on a linear basis. For RSUs that are earned pursuant to the three-year performance component, 50% become vested as of the date performance is measured by the Compensation Committee following December 31, 2019, 25% become vested on January 1, 2021, and the remaining 25% become vested on
January 1, 2022, in each case subject to continued employment.
For the Relative TSR component, we use the FTSE NAREIT Equity Shopping Centers Index (the “Index”) as the peer index. No RSUs are earned for below-threshold performance and the threshold, target, and maximum performance levels (measured on a compounded annual basis over the relevant measurement period) are:

The performance criteria for the one-year performance component of the 2017 award, which comprises one-third of the total award grant, is Same Property NOI per share (37.5% of such units), NAREIT funds from operations (“FFO”) per share (37.5% of such units) and individual performance goals (25% of such units), in each case for the period beginning January 1, 2017 and ending December 31, 2017. The total number of units that are earned based on the Same Property NOI per share and FFO per share metrics is based on an achievement factor which, in each case, ranges from a 0% payout for below threshold performance, to 50% for threshold performance, to 100% for target performance, and up to 150% for maximum performance. For actual performance between the specified threshold, target and maximum levels, the resulting achievement percentage will be adjusted on a linear basis. Following the date performance is measured by the Compensation Committee following December 31, 2017, 50% of the earned units become vested as of such date, 25% become vested on January 1, 2019 and the remaining 25% become vested on January 1, 2020, in each case subject to continued employment.
In general, unvested units are forfeited after the final calculation date applicable to any award to the extent performance criteria do not result in the units becoming earned and as of any termination of employment. Upon a termination of employment by the Company without cause, or a resignation by the
executive that is as a result of good reason or a retirement (each as defined in the award agreements), a portion of the units will be eligible to become earned and vested, based on actual performance through the date of termination (or target performance in the case of the individual performance criteria) and subject to proration based on the number of days during the applicable performance period that the executive was employed.
Upon a change in control during any performance period, a portion of the units will become earned and vested based on actual performance through the date of the change in control (or target performance in the case of the individual performance criteria).
Dividend rights with respect to earned awards and clawback covenants are unchanged from 2016 awards.
We calculate Same Property NOI based on the net operating income (“NOI”) of properties owned and stabilized for the full period presented, which eliminates disparities in NOI due to the acquisition, disposition or stabilization of development properties during the period presented, and therefore, provides a more consistent metric for comparing the performance of properties. We calculate FFO as net income (loss) in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles excluding (i) gain (loss) on disposition of operating properties, and (ii) extraordinary items, plus (iii) depreciation and amortization of operating properties, (iv) impairment

of operating properties and real estate equity investments, and (v) after adjustments for joint ventures calculated to reflect FFO on the same basis.
Annual Cash Incentive Plan Financial Metrics
In February 2017, the Compensation Committee determined that the Annual Bonus Plan for fiscal 2017
will reward our named executive officers that are current employees 75% based on corporate financial metrics and 25% based on individual goals.
The threshold, target and maximum payout amounts will continue to be based on a percentage of their base salary for fiscal 2017.
Summary Compensation Table
The following table provides summary information concerning compensation paid or accrued by us to or on behalf of Mr. Siegel, Mr. Carroll and Mr. Pappagallo for 2016, 2015 and 2014 for services rendered to us during the respective fiscal years. Mr. Hyun was not a named executive officer in 2014, and Messrs. Taylor, Horgan, Finnegan, Hurwitz and Lefkowitz and Ms. Aman were not named executive officers in 2014 or 2015; therefore, in accordance with the SEC’s disclosure rules, information regarding compensation for the year or years that those individuals were not named executive officers is not included in the table below.

TABLE OF CONTENTS
Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table and Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table
As previously discussed in “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” above, five of our ten named executive officers are no longer employees of the Company, including the Former Officers (Messrs. Carroll, Pappagallo and Hyun) and the Former Interim Officers (Messrs. Hurwitz and Lefkowitz). Mr. Carroll, our former chief executive officer, and Mr. Pappagallo, our former president and chief financial officer, separated from the Company in February 2016, and Mr. Hyun separated from the Company in June 2016. In addition, the interim service of Mr. Hurwitz, our former interim chief executive officer, and Mr. Lefkowitz, our former interim chief financial officer, ended in May 2017 in conjunction with Mr. Taylor joining the Company as Chief Executive Officer and President and Ms. Aman joining the Company as Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. The principal terms of each of their employment agreements, and the employment agreements of the other named executive officers, which are relevant to understanding their 2016 compensation, are summarized below, except with respect to potential payments and other benefits upon specified terminations or a “change in control” (as defined in the employment agreements), which are summarized below under “Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control.” Messrs. Carroll, Pappagallo, Hyun, Hurwitz and Lefkowitz also entered into separation agreements with the Company in connection with their separations, the principal terms of which are summarized below.
Employment Agreements with our Named Executive Officers
The employment agreements with each of our Current Officers contain substantially similar terms. Under the employment agreements, each executive is eligible to receive a minimum base salary, as set forth in the applicable agreement, and an annual bonus based on the achievement of specified financial and individual goals. If these goals are achieved, each executive may receive an annual incentive cash bonus equal to a percentage of his or her base salary as provided below. Each executive officer is also entitled to participate in all employee benefit plans, programs and arrangements made available to other executive officers generally.
Under the employment agreements, a “constructive termination” is deemed to occur upon specified events, including, a reduction in the executive’s annual salary or incentive compensation opportunities, where the executive’s compensation or other material employee benefit are not paid when
due, upon a material reduction in the executive’s authority or responsibilities, upon specified relocation events or, in the case of Messrs. Siegel and Finnegan, where the Company elects not to renew the executive’s employment agreement, subject, in each case, to specified notice and cure periods.
Each of the employment agreements also contain restrictive covenants, including an indefinite covenant on confidentiality of information, and covenants related to non-competition and non-solicitation of our employees, customers and affiliates at all times during the named executive officer’s employment, and for one or two years after specified terminations of the named executive officer’s employment (other than for cause).
Following are the material provisions of the employment agreements of our named executive officers.
