Item 7.01
Regulation FD Disclosure.

Kite Realty Group Trust (the “Company”) has received multiple inquiries from analysts, since its August 2, 2018 earnings conference call, regarding the projected impact of the changes to the standards for lease accounting required by ASU 2016-02, Leases. Specifically, the Company has been asked to quantify the projected impact of the amendment to ASC 340-40, Other Assets and Deferred Costs - Contracts with Customers, which will require that incremental costs of obtaining a contract be recognized as an asset if the entity expects to recover them, which will reduce the leasing costs currently capitalized.

In response to those inquiries, the Company hereby discloses that, at this time, the Company is projecting that this accounting change will result in a reduction to certain capitalized costs, a corresponding increase in general, administrative, and other expenses, and a decrease in amortization expense on the Company’s consolidated statement of operations, with the net magnitude estimated to be approximately $3 - $5 million for 2019, although the amount of such impact is highly dependent upon the leasing compensation structures in place at the time of adoption, which may ultimately differ from those assumed by this projection.

The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities thereunder. In addition, the information in this Current Report on Form 8-K shall not be incorporated by reference into the filings of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act.
