Kite Realty reports loss on loan default

Kite Realty Group Trust Inc. reported a larger second-quarter loss due to a $5.4 million charge the company took after a bank foreclosed on one of its developments.

The Indianapolis-based real estate investment trust said Friday morning that it lost $8.7 million in the quarter, compared with a loss of $2.7 million during the same period a year earlier.

The impairment charge largely relates to Kite’s Kedron Village property in Georgia, a 266,000-square-foot retail center in the upscale planned community of Peachtree City. The lender foreclosed on the property in June after a Kite subsidiary defaulted on the project’s $29.5 million loan “due to insufficient cash flow being generated by the property,” Kite said in a public filing.

Kite's revenue for the quarter increased 28 percent, to $31 million, from $24.2 million during the same period in 2012. On a same-property level, revenue rose 4.4 percent compared with last year’s second quarter.

Analysts had expected Kite to bring in revenue of $29.7 million.

Kite saw funds from operations, or FFO, of $10.1 million, or 10 cents per share, compared with $7.5 million, or 10 cents per share, during the same period last year. The results were in line with analyst expectations. FFO is a common measure of REIT performance.

During the second quarter, Kite acquired Cool Springs Market, a 224,000-square-foot retail center in Nashville, which is 95.8-percent leased, and Castleton Crossing in Indianapolis, a 278,000-square-foot center, which is fully leased.

The company, which owns interests in 63 retail properties totaling 9.9 million square feet, said the properties were 95.4-percent leased as of June 30, compared with 93 percent in the year-ago period.

Shares of Kite were up a penny in premarket trading, priced at $5.69 each.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
