Kite Realty reports quarterly profit, annual loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Kite Realty Group Trust on Wednesday reported a profit of $600,000 for the quarter ended Dec. 31, opposed to a loss of $4.4 million during the same period in 2008.

The Indianapolis-based developer’s fourth-quarter performance met the expectations of analysts, who estimated earnings at 12 cents per share.

Kite said funds from operations fell to $8.7 million, or 12 cents per share, compared to $10 million, or 24 cents per share, for the fourth quarter in 2008. Funds from operations, or FFO, is a common performance figure used by real estate investment trusts to define the cash flow from their operations.

The company’s revenue in the last quarter fell 42 percent, to $29.3 million, reflecting a decline in construction activity, the company said.

For the entire year, FFO dropped to $28.7 million, or 48 cents per share, compared with $45.1 million, or $1.17 per share, for 2008. Adjusted FFO in 2009, which excludes costs for an impairment, was 57 cents per share.

Kite lost $1.8 million in 2009, compared with a profit of $6.1 million the previous year. The company attributed the loss to the share of a $4.4 million write-off in connection with the bankruptcy of Circuit City, and its share of a $2.7 million loss from the sale of a property.

Revenue for the year fell 23 percent, to $142.1 million.

In 2009, Kite renewed or signed 114 leases, totaling about 673,000 square feet.

“We reorganized, refocused and strengthened our leasing department, which resulted in one of the highest levels of annual leasing production in our history,” company CEO John A. Kite said in a prepared statement. “Despite the market setbacks in 2009 and the industry challenges in 2010, we believe we are well-positioned to take advantage of the changes in the real estate market cycle.”

Kite owns 51 retail properties with about 8.4 million total square feet of space, and four commercial properties that add another 500,000 square feet.

  1. The Walgreens did not get a lot of traffic. It was not located on the corner of the intersection, and not really visible from Emerson. Meanwhile the CVS there is huge and right on the corner. I am guessing a lot of people drove by a million times and never knew the Walgreens was there. Although, with the new Walmart market going in, that area could really see a lot of increase in traffic soon.

  2. You folks don't have a clue. There is a legal way to enter this country and to get aid. This left unchecked could run us to ruin quickly. I also heard that 'supporters' were getting major $$ to take them in? Who's monitoring this and guess who pays the bill? I support charitable organizations... but this is NOT the way to do it!

  3. Apparently at some time before alcohol has been served at the fair. The problem is that beer or wine used to be a common drink for people before soft drinks and was not thought to be that unusual. Since many folks now only drink to see how much they can drink or what kind of condition they can end up in it becomes more problematic. Go to Europe and its no big deal just as if you had sodas of milk to drink everyday. Its using common sense that is lacking now days.

  4. To address the epic failure of attracting race fans to both the Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 would take too much of my time to write. Bottom line Boles is clueless and obviously totally out of touch with the real paying fan base. I see nothing but death spin coming for the Brickyard, just like Indy. Get somebody in a place of power that understands what race fans want.

  5. I am a race fan through & through. It doesn't matter if it's Indy cars or Nascar. I love a great race. I go to several other tracks each year and you can see the entire track. I know Indy has tradition, but fans want to see the entire race. I sit in the Penthouse, am almost 60 years old, and would like to see a better TV screen in turn 1 so you can see the entire race. Then I think Indy needs to install an escalator so us old folks can make it up to the Penthouse and down again if we want more options to purchase food and drinks. Just a race fans opinion. Lights won't make the race any better, but you might be able to see the TV better at night. Turn 1's screen needs replaced with a better and bigger screen.
