RETAIL PROPERTIES OF AMERICA, INC.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Readers of this Quarterly Report should refer to the audited financial statements of Retail Properties of America, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2017, which are included in its 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as certain footnote disclosures which would substantially duplicate those contained in the Annual Report have been omitted from this Quarterly Report. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary, all of which were of normal recurring nature, for a fair presentation have been included in this Quarterly Report.
(1) ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Retail Properties of America, Inc. (the Company) was formed on March 5, 2003 and its primary purpose is to own and operate high quality, strategically located shopping centers in the United States.
The Company has elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (REIT) under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code). The Company believes it qualifies for taxation as a REIT and, as such, the Company generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income that is distributed to its shareholders. If the Company fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, the Company will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income. Even if the Company qualifies for taxation as a REIT, the Company may be subject to certain state and local taxes on its income, property or net worth and U.S. federal income and excise taxes on its undistributed income. The Company has one wholly-owned subsidiary that has jointly elected to be treated as a taxable REIT subsidiary (TRS) and is subject to U.S. federal, state and local income taxes at regular corporate tax rates. The income tax expense incurred by the TRS did not have a material impact on the Company’s accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. For example, significant estimates and assumptions have been made with respect to useful lives of assets, capitalization of development costs, fair value measurements, provision for impairment, including estimates of holding periods, capitalization rates and discount rates (where applicable), provision for income taxes, recoverable amounts of receivables, deferred taxes and initial valuations and related amortization periods of deferred costs and intangibles, particularly with respect to property acquisitions. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
All share amounts and dollar amounts in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, are stated in thousands with the exception of per share amounts and per square foot amounts.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, as well as all wholly-owned subsidiaries and any consolidated variable interest entities (VIEs). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Wholly-owned subsidiaries generally consist of limited liability companies, limited partnerships and statutory trusts.
The Company’s property ownership as of March 31, 2018 is summarized below:
 
Wholly-owned (a)
Retail operating properties
106

 
 
Redevelopment properties
1

(a)
Excludes (i) Schaumburg Towers, the Company’s one remaining office complex which is classified as held for sale, (ii) one property where the Company has begun activities in anticipation of future redevelopment and (iii) the redevelopment portion of Circle East, formerly known as Towson Circle, which has been combined with the Company’s neighboring retail operating property formerly known as Towson Square. This combination reduced the Company’s redevelopment property count by one.

(2) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Refer to the Company’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a summary of its significant accounting policies. Except as disclosed below, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies in the three months ended March 31, 2018.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, on a modified retrospective basis. This new guidance replaces existing revenue recognition standards. The core principle of this standard is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Substantially all of the Company’s revenue follows the existing leasing guidance and is not impacted by the adoption of this standard, however, the sale of investment property is required to follow the new guidance as well as ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets discussed below. The sale of investment property is reported as “gain on sales of investment properties” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income (loss) and further discussed in Note 4 – Dispositions. The adoption of ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as substantially all of its revenue falls outside of the scope of this guidance.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets, on a modified retrospective basis. This new pronouncement, which adds guidance for partial sales of nonfinancial assets and clarifies the scope of Subtopic 610-20, Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets, applies to the derecognition of all nonfinancial assets (including real estate) for which the counterparty is not a customer. The sale of investment property is reported as “gain on sales of investment properties” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income (loss) and further discussed in Note 4 – Dispositions. The adoption of this pronouncement did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as the adoption of the new guidance did not result in a change to the timing or amount of gain recognized upon disposition as compared to the previous guidance.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall, on a prospective basis. This new guidance requires companies to disclose the fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities measured at amortized cost in accordance with the exit price notion, which is consistent with the Company’s existing practices, and no longer requires disclosure of the methods and significant assumptions used, including any changes, to estimate fair value. In addition, companies are required to disclose all financial assets and financial liabilities grouped by (i) measurement category and (ii) form of financial instrument. The adoption of this pronouncement did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging, as of January 1, 2018. This new guidance amends the designation and measurement guidance for qualifying hedging relationships and the presentation of hedge results in an entity’s financial statements. It also eliminates the requirement to separately measure and report hedge ineffectiveness. Entities are now required to present the earnings effect of the hedging instrument in the same income statement line item in which they report the earnings effect of the hedged item. In addition, entities may perform the initial quantitative assessment of hedge effectiveness at any time after hedge designation, but no later than the first quarterly effectiveness testing date, and subsequent assessments of hedge effectiveness may be performed qualitatively unless facts and circumstances change. Disclosure requirements have been modified to include a tabular disclosure related to the effect of hedging instruments on the income statement and the requirement to disclose the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of such instruments has been eliminated. The adoption of this pronouncement resulted in a cumulative effect adjustment of $12 to accumulated other comprehensive income and accumulated distributions in excess of earnings related to eliminating the separate measurement of ineffectiveness. The amended presentation and disclosure guidance is required only prospectively.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. This new guidance is effective January 1, 2019, with early adoption permitted, and will require lessees to recognize a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use (ROU) asset, initially measured at the present value of lease payments, for both operating and financing leases. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, lessees will be permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset to

not recognize lease liabilities and lease assets. Upon adoption, the Company will recognize a lease liability and an ROU asset for operating leases where it is the lessee, such as ground leases and office leases. The Company is in the process of evaluating the inputs required to calculate the amounts that will be recorded on its balance sheet for each lease. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, the Company expects to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset to not recognize lease liabilities and lease assets. Under this new pronouncement, lessor accounting for lease components will be largely unchanged from existing GAAP. Only incremental direct leasing costs may be capitalized under the new guidance, which is consistent with the Company’s existing policies. The pronouncement allows some optional practical expedients. The Company expects to adopt this new guidance on January 1, 2019 and will continue to evaluate the impact of this guidance until it becomes effective.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses. This new guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted beginning January 1, 2019, and replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. Financial assets that are measured at amortized cost will be required to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected with an allowance for credit losses deducted from the amortized cost basis. In addition, an entity must consider broader information in developing its expected credit loss estimate, including the use of forecasted information. Generally, the pronouncement requires a modified retrospective method of adoption. The Company will continue to evaluate the impact of this guidance until it becomes effective.

(d)
(a)
This property was acquired through two consolidated VIEs and used to facilitate an Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange (1031 Exchange).
(b)
The wholly-owned multi-tenant retail operating property located in Largo, Maryland was previously subject to an approximately 70 acre long-term ground lease with a third party. The Company completed a transaction whereby it received the fee interest in approximately 50 acres of the underlying land in exchange for which (i) the Company paid $1,939 and (ii) the term of the ground lease with respect to the remaining approximately 20 acres was shortened to nine months. The Company derecognized building and improvements of $11,347 related to the remaining ground lease, recognized the fair value of land received of $15,200 and recorded a deferred gain of $2,524 as of March 31, 2017, which was recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2017 upon the expiration of the ground lease on approximately 20 acres. The total number of properties in the Company’s portfolio was not affected by this transaction.
(c)
The Company acquired an additional phase at its One Loudoun Downtown multi-tenant retail operating property, which was accounted for as an asset acquisition. The total number of properties in the Company’s portfolio was not affected by this transaction.

(a)
The weighted average amortization period for acquired lease intangible assets is six years for acquisitions completed during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
(b)
The weighted average amortization period for acquired lease intangible liabilities is 13 years for acquisitions completed during the three months ended March 31, 2017.
The above acquisitions were funded using a combination of available cash on hand, proceeds from dispositions and proceeds from the Company’s unsecured revolving line of credit. All of the acquisitions completed during 2017 were considered asset acquisitions and, as such, transaction costs were capitalized upon closing.
Variable Interest Entities
During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement with a qualified intermediary related to a 1031 Exchange. The Company loaned $87,452 to the VIEs to acquire Main Street Promenade on January 13, 2017. The 1031 Exchange was completed during the year ended December 31, 2017 and, in accordance with applicable provisions of the Code, within 180 days after the acquisition date of the property. At the completion of the 1031 Exchange, the sole membership interests of the VIEs were assigned to the Company in satisfaction of the outstanding loan, resulting in the entities being wholly owned by the Company and no longer considered VIEs.
Prior to the completion of the 1031 Exchange, the Company was deemed to be the primary beneficiary of each VIE as it had the ability to direct the activities of the VIEs that most significantly impact their economic performance and had all of the risks and rewards of ownership. Accordingly, the Company consolidated the VIEs. No value or income was attributed to the noncontrolling interest. The assets of the VIEs consisted of the investment property, Main Street Promenade, which was operated by the Company.
(4) DISPOSITIONS
On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers and ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets on a modified retrospective basis. The dispositions completed during the three months ended March 31, 2018 were not considered to be contracts with customers as defined in ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as they are not considered an output of the Company’s ordinary business activities. Rather, the dispositions follow the new guidance of ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets. The adoption on a modified retrospective basis requires the guidance and related disclosure requirements of ASU 2017-05 to be followed for contracts related to the sale of investment properties completed during the three months ended March 31, 2018. Disclosures related to periods prior to January 1, 2018 for the sale of investment properties are not impacted by the adoption.

Under the new guidance, derecognition of nonfinancial assets and in substance nonfinancial assets, including real estate, and the related gains on sale of investment properties are recognized when (i) the parties to the sale contract have approved the contract and are committed to perform their respective obligations; (ii) the Company can identify each party’s rights regarding the property transferred; (iii) the Company can identify the payment terms for the property transferred; (iv) the contract has commercial substance (that is, the risk, timing or amount of the entity’s future cash flows is expected to change as a result of the contract); and (v) the Company has satisfied its performance obligations by transferring control of the property. Typically, the timing of payment and satisfaction of performance obligations occur simultaneously on the disposition date upon transfer of the property’s ownership.

On January 6, 2016, the Company entered into its fourth amended and restated unsecured credit agreement (Unsecured Credit Agreement) with a syndicate of financial institutions led by KeyBank National Association serving as administrative agent and Wells Fargo Bank, National Association serving as syndication agent to provide for an unsecured credit facility aggregating $1,200,000 (Unsecured Credit Facility). The Unsecured Credit Facility consists of a $750,000 unsecured revolving line of credit, a $250,000 unsecured term loan and a second unsecured term loan which had an outstanding balance of $200,000 at inception, of which the Company repaid $100,000 during the year ended December 31, 2017, and is priced on a leverage grid at a rate of LIBOR plus a credit spread. The Company received investment grade credit ratings from Moody’s and Standard & Poor’s in 2014. In accordance with the Unsecured Credit Agreement, the Company may elect to convert to an investment grade pricing grid. As of March 31, 2018, making such an election would have resulted in a higher interest rate and, as such, the Company has not made the election to convert to an investment grade pricing grid.

The Company’s objective in using interest rate derivatives is to manage its exposure to interest rate movements and add stability to interest expense. To accomplish this objective, the Company uses interest rate swaps as part of its interest rate risk management strategy. Interest rate swaps designated as cash flow hedges involve the receipt of variable rate amounts from a counterparty in exchange for the Company making fixed rate payments over the life of the agreement without exchange of the underlying notional amount.
As of March 31, 2018, the Company used five interest rate swaps to hedge the variable cash flows associated with variable rate debt. Changes in fair value of the derivatives that are designated and that qualify as cash flow hedges are recorded in “Accumulated other comprehensive income” and are reclassified to interest expense as interest payments are made on the Company’s variable rate debt. Over the next 12 months, the Company estimates that an additional $1,319 will be reclassified as a decrease to interest expense. Prior to January 1, 2018, only the effective portion of changes in fair value of the derivatives that were designated and that qualified as cash flow hedges was recorded in “Accumulated other comprehensive income” and the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of the derivatives was recognized directly in earnings.
The following table summarizes the Company’s interest rate swaps as of March 31, 2018, which effectively convert one-month floating rate LIBOR to a fixed rate:

(10) EQUITY
In December 2015, the Company entered into an at-the-market (ATM) equity program under which it may issue and sell shares of its Class A common stock, having an aggregate offering price of up to $250,000, from time to time. Actual sales may depend on a variety of factors, including, among others, market conditions and the trading price of the Company’s Class A common stock. Any net proceeds are expected to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include the funding of acquisitions and redevelopment activities and the repayment of debt, including the Company’s unsecured revolving line of credit. The Company did not sell any shares under its ATM equity program during the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. As of March 31, 2018, the Company had Class A common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $250,000 remaining available for sale under its ATM equity program.
In December 2015, the Company’s board of directors authorized a common stock repurchase program under which the Company may repurchase, from time to time, up to a maximum of $250,000 of shares of its Class A common stock. In December 2017, The Company’s board of directors authorized a $250,000 increase to the common stock repurchase program. The shares may be repurchased in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions and are canceled upon repurchase. The timing and actual number of shares repurchased will depend on a variety of factors, including price in absolute terms and in relation to the value of the Company’s assets, corporate and regulatory requirements, market conditions and other corporate liquidity requirements and priorities. The common stock repurchase program may be suspended or terminated at any time without prior notice. The Company did not repurchase any shares during the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. As of March 31, 2018, $264,057 remained available for repurchases under the common stock repurchase program.

Derivative asset:  The fair value of the derivative asset is determined using a discounted cash flow analysis on the expected future cash flows of each derivative. This analysis uses observable market data including forward yield curves and implied volatilities to determine the market’s expectation of the future cash flows of the variable component. The fixed and variable components of the derivative are then discounted using calculated discount factors developed based on the LIBOR swap rate and are aggregated to arrive at a single valuation for the period. The Company also incorporates credit valuation adjustments to appropriately reflect both its own nonperformance risk and the respective counterparty’s nonperformance risk in the fair value measurements. Although the Company has determined that the majority of the inputs used to value its derivatives fall within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with its derivatives use Level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads to evaluate the likelihood of default by itself and its counterparties. However, as of March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the Company has assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of its derivative positions and has determined that the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation. As a result, the Company has determined that its derivative valuations in their entirety are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. In adjusting the fair value of its derivative contracts for the effect of nonperformance risk, the Company has considered any applicable credit enhancements. The Company’s derivative instruments are further described in Note 9 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.
