Acquisition costs contribute to Kite quarterly loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Kite Realty Group Trust reported a loss of $5.1 million in the second quarter, much of it due to costs from its $1.2 billion acquisition of Inland Diversified Real Estate Trust early this month, the Indianapolis-based company said Thursday afternoon.

Kite's $5.1 million loss translated to 4 cents per share, compared with a loss of $8.7 million, or 10 cents per share, in the year ago period. The company attributed $3.3 million of the loss to acquisition costs.

Revenue jumped 40 percent, to $40.1 million in the second quarter, largely due to the acquisition of a nine-property portfolio in November and the delivery of new and redeveloped properties to the market, the company said.

Kite saw funds from operations increase to $14.1 million, or 10 cents per share, compared with $10.1 million, or 10 cents per share, in the second quarter of 2013. FFO is a common measure of performance for real estate investment trusts. Excluding acquisition costs, FFO was $17.4 million, or 13 cents per share.

Occupancy in its portfolio was relatively flat quarter to quarter. Kite, which owned interest in 66 retail properties totaling 11.7 million square feet as of June 30, said the properties were 95.2-percent leased as of June 30, compared with 95.4 percent in the year-ago period.

With the acquisition of Inland, Kite now owns interest in 133 properties totaling 20.6 million square feet.

The company executed 45 new and renewed leased totaling nearly 175,000 square feet in the second quarter.

Kite shares closed at $6.10 each, down 10 cents from the start of Thursday.

  1. I am so impressed that the smoking ban FAILED in Kokomo! I might just move to your Awesome city!

  2. way to much breweries being built in indianapolis. its going to be saturated market, if not already. when is enough, enough??

  3. This house is a reminder of Hamilton County history. Its position near the interstate is significant to remember what Hamilton County was before the SUPERBROKERs, Navients, commercial parks, sprawling vinyl villages, and acres of concrete retail showed up. What's truly Wasteful is not reusing a structure that could still be useful. History isn't confined to parks and books.

  4. To compare Connor Prairie or the Zoo to a random old house is a big ridiculous. If it were any where near the level of significance there wouldn't be a major funding gap. Put a big billboard on I-69 funded by the tourism board for people to come visit this old house, and I doubt there would be any takers, since other than age there is no significance whatsoever. Clearly the tax payers of Fishers don't have a significant interest in this project, so PLEASE DON'T USE OUR VALUABLE MONEY. Government money is finite and needs to be utilized for the most efficient and productive purposes. This is far from that.

  5. I only tried it 2x and didn't think much of it both times. With the new apts plus a couple other of new developments on Guilford, I am surprised it didn't get more business. Plus you have a couple of subdivisions across the street from it. I hope Upland can keep it going. Good beer and food plus a neat environment and outdoor seating.
