Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
1. Description of Business
Business. Formed on May 25, 1993, Camden Property Trust, a Texas real estate investment trust ("REIT"), and all consolidated subsidiaries are primarily engaged in the ownership, management, development, redevelopment, acquisition, and construction of multifamily apartment communities. Our multifamily apartment communities are referred to as "communities," "multifamily communities," "properties," or "multifamily properties" in the following discussion. As of March 31, 2019, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 169 multifamily properties comprised of 57,517 apartment homes across the United States. Of the 169 properties, five properties were under construction as of March 31, 2019, and will consist of a total of 1,572 apartment homes when completed. We also own land holdings which we may develop into multifamily communities in the future.
2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Principles of Consolidation. Our condensed consolidated financial statements include our accounts and the accounts of other subsidiaries and joint ventures (including partnerships and limited liability companies) over which we have control. All intercompany transactions, balances, and profits have been eliminated in consolidation. Investments acquired or created are evaluated based on the accounting guidance relating to variable interest entities ("VIEs"), which requires the consolidation of VIEs in which we are considered to be the primary beneficiary. If the investment is determined not to be a VIE, then the investment is evaluated for consolidation primarily using a voting interest model. In determining if we have a controlling financial interest, we consider factors such as ownership interests, authority to make decisions, kick-out rights and participating rights. As of March 31, 2019, two of our consolidated operating partnerships are VIEs. We are considered the primary beneficiary of both consolidated operating partnerships and therefore consolidate these operating partnerships. As of March 31, 2019, we held 92% and 95% of the outstanding common limited partnership units and the sole 1% general partnership interest in each of these consolidated operating partnerships.
Interim Financial Reporting. We have prepared these unaudited financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial statements and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). Accordingly, these statements do not include all information and footnote disclosures required for annual statements. While we believe the disclosures presented are adequate for interim reporting, these interim unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes included in our 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain amounts have been presented separately within investing and financing activities in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2018 to conform to the current year presentation. These changes in presentation had no impact in our condensed consolidated cash flows from investing or financing activities. Additionally, we adopted Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-02, "Leases" on January 1, 2019. ASU 2016-02 requires, at our election of a practical expedient, to combine lessor lease and non-lease components as a single component under certain conditions. For the three months ended March 31, 2018, we combined other property revenues with rental revenues to conform to the current year presentation, and now disclose one property revenue stream which did not have any impact on our condensed consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income.
Acquisitions of Real Estate. Upon acquisition of real estate, we determine the fair value of tangible and intangible assets, which includes land, buildings (as-if-vacant), furniture and fixtures, the value of in-place leases, including above and below market leases, and acquired liabilities. In estimating these values, we apply methods similar to those used by independent appraisers of income-producing property. We generally believe acquisitions of operating properties are asset acquisitions, which include the capitalization of transaction costs. Estimates of fair value of acquired debt are based upon interest rates available for the issuance of debt with similar terms and remaining maturities. Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the remaining useful lives of the related tangible assets. The value of in-place leases and above or below market leases is amortized over the estimated average remaining life of leases in place at the time of acquisition; the net carrying value of in-place leases are included in other assets, net and the net carrying value of above or below market leases are included in other liabilities, net in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
During each of the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, we recognized amortization expense related to in-place leases of approximately $1.9 million. During each of the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the weighted average amortization periods for in-place leases were approximately seven months.
Asset Impairment. Long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment annually or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Impairment may exist if estimated future undiscounted cash
flows associated with long-lived assets are not sufficient to recover the carrying value of such assets. We consider projected future undiscounted cash flows, trends, strategic decisions regarding future development plans, and other factors in our assessment of whether impairment conditions exist. While we believe our estimates of future cash flows are reasonable, different assumptions regarding a number of factors, including, but not limited to, market rents, economic conditions, and occupancies, could significantly affect these estimates. In estimating fair value, management uses appraisals, management estimates, and discounted cash flow calculations which utilize inputs from a marketplace participant's perspective. When impairment exists, the long-lived asset is adjusted to its fair value. In addition, we evaluate our equity investments in joint ventures and if we believe there is an other than temporary decline in market value of our investment below our carrying value, we will record an impairment charge. We did not record any impairment charges for the three months ended March 31, 2019 or 2018.
The value of our properties under development depends on market conditions, including estimates of the project start date as well as estimates of demand for multifamily communities. We have reviewed market trends and other marketplace information and have incorporated this information as well as our current outlook into the assumptions we use in our impairment analyses. Due to the judgment and assumptions applied in the impairment analyses, it is possible actual results could differ substantially from those estimated.
We believe the carrying value of our operating real estate assets, properties under development, and land is currently recoverable. However, if market conditions deteriorate or if changes in our development strategy significantly affect any key assumptions used in our fair value estimates, we may need to take material charges in future periods for impairments related to existing assets. Any such material non-cash charges could have an adverse effect in our consolidated financial position and results of operations.
Cost Capitalization. Real estate assets are carried at cost plus capitalized carrying charges. Carrying charges are primarily interest and real estate taxes which are capitalized as part of properties under development. Capitalized interest is generally based on the weighted average interest rate of our unsecured debt. Capitalized interest was approximately $2.7 million and $3.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Capitalized real estate taxes were approximately $1.3 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
Expenditures directly related to the development and improvement of real estate assets are capitalized at cost as land and buildings and improvements. Indirect development costs, including salaries and benefits and other related costs directly attributable to the development of properties, are also capitalized. We begin capitalizing development, construction, and carrying costs when the development of the future real estate asset is probable and certain activities necessary to prepare the underlying real estate for its intended use have been initiated. All construction and carrying costs are capitalized and reported in the balance sheet as properties under development until the apartment homes are substantially completed. As apartment homes within development properties are substantially completed, the total capitalized development cost of each apartment home is transferred from properties under development including land to buildings and improvements.
Depreciation and amortization is computed over the expected useful lives of depreciable property on a straight-line basis with lives generally as follows:
Estimated Useful Life
Buildings and improvements
Furniture, fixtures, equipment, and other
Intangible assets/liabilities (in-place leases and above and below market leases)
underlying lease term
Derivative Financial Instruments. Derivative financial instruments are recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheets at fair value and presented on a gross basis for financial reporting purposes even when those instruments are subject to master netting arrangements and may otherwise qualify for net presentation. Accounting for changes in the fair value of derivatives depends on the intended use of the derivative, whether we have elected to designate a derivative in a hedging relationship and apply hedge accounting, and whether the hedging relationship has satisfied the criteria necessary to apply hedge accounting. Derivatives designated and qualifying as a hedge of the exposure to variability in expected future cash flows or other types of forecasted transactions are cash flow hedges. Hedge accounting generally provides for the matching of the timing of gain or loss recognition on the hedging instrument with the recognition of the changes attributable to the earnings effect of the hedged transactions. We may enter into derivative contracts which are intended to economically hedge certain of our risks, for which hedge accounting does not apply or we elect not to apply hedge accounting.
Fair Value. For financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value on a recurring or non-recurring basis, fair value is the price we would expect to receive to sell an asset, or pay to transfer a liability, in an orderly transaction with a market participant at the measurement date under current market conditions. In the absence of such data, fair value is estimated using internal information consistent with what market participants would use in a hypothetical transaction.
In determining fair value, observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect our market assumptions; preference is given to observable inputs. These two types of inputs create the following fair value hierarchy:
Level 1: Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level 2: Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.
Level 3: Significant inputs to the valuation model are unobservable.
Recurring Fair Value Measurements. The following describes the valuation methodologies we use to measure different financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis:
Deferred Compensation Plan Investments. The estimated fair values of investment securities classified as deferred compensation plan investments are based on quoted market prices utilizing public information for the same transactions. Our deferred compensation plan investments are recorded in other assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. The inputs associated with the valuation of our recurring deferred compensation plan investments are included in Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy.
Derivative Financial Instruments. The estimated fair values of derivative financial instruments are valued using widely accepted valuation techniques including discounted cash flow analysis on the expected cash flows of each derivative. This analysis reflects the contractual terms of the derivatives, including the period to maturity, and uses observable market-based inputs, including interest rate curves and volatility. The fair values of interest rate swaps and caps are estimated using the market-standard methodology of netting the discounted fixed cash payments and the discounted expected variable cash receipts. The variable cash receipts are based on an expectation of interest rates (forward curves) derived from observable market interest rate curves. In addition, credit valuation adjustments, which consider the impact of any credit enhancements to the contracts, are incorporated in the fair values to account for potential nonperformance risk, including our own nonperformance risk and the respective counterparty’s nonperformance risk. The fair value of interest rate caps is determined using the market-standard methodology of discounting the future expected cash receipts which would occur if variable interest rates rise above the strike rate of the caps. The variable interest rates used in the calculation of projected receipts on the cap are based on an expectation of future interest rates derived from observed market interest rate curves and volatilities.
Although we have determined the majority of the inputs used to value our derivatives fall within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, the credit valuation adjustments associated with our derivatives utilize Level 3 inputs, such as estimates of current credit spreads, to evaluate the likelihood of default. However, we have assessed the significance of the impact of the credit valuation adjustments on the overall valuation of our derivative positions and have determined the credit valuation adjustments are not significant to the overall valuation of our derivatives. As a result, we have determined our derivative valuations in their entirety are classified in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.
Non-Recurring Fair Value Measurements. Certain assets are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. These assets are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments in certain circumstances. These assets primarily include long-lived assets which are recorded at fair value if they are impaired using the fair value methodologies used to measure long-lived assets described above at "Asset Impairment." Non-recurring fair value disclosures are not provided for impairments on assets disposed during the period because they are no longer owned by us. The inputs associated with the valuation of long-lived assets are generally included in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy, unless a quoted price for a similar long-lived asset in an active market exists, at which time they are included in Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.
Financial Instrument Fair Value Disclosures. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued expenses and distributions payable represent fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying value of restricted cash approximates its fair value based on the nature of our assessment of the ability to recover these amounts. The carrying values of our notes receivable also approximate their fair values, which are based on certain factors, such as market interest rates, terms of the note and credit worthiness of the borrower. These financial instruments utilize Level 3 inputs. In calculating the fair value of our notes payable, interest rate and spread assumptions reflect current credit worthiness and market conditions available for the issuance of notes payable with similar terms and remaining maturities. These financial instruments utilize Level 2 inputs.
Note Receivable. We have one note receivable included in other assets, net, in our condensed consolidated balance sheets, relating to a real estate secured loan made to an unaffiliated third party. This note receivable matures on October 1, 2025. At both March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the outstanding note receivable principal balance was approximately $9.3 million. The weighted average interest rate was approximately 7.0% and 4.0% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Interest is recognized over the life of the note and included in interest and other income in our condensed consolidated statements
of income and comprehensive income. We consider a note receivable to be impaired if it is probable we will not collect all contractually due principal and interest and do not accrue interest when a note is considered impaired and an allowance is recorded for any principal and previously accrued interest which is not believed to be collectible.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements. In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued ASU 2018-15, "Intangibles—Goodwill and Other— Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract." ASU 2018-15 clarifies certain implementation costs relating to a cloud computing arrangement which is considered to be a service contract should be capitalized as if the arrangement was an internal-use software project. ASU 2018-15 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, and early adoption is permitted. This standard may be applied using the prospective transition method which is applicable to service contracts entered, renewed, or materially modified after the effective date or the retrospective transition method which allows us to recognize a cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings, if any, as of the adoption date. We anticipate adopting ASU 2018-15 as of January 1, 2020, using the retrospective transition method and we do not expect our adoption to have a material impact in our consolidated financial statements.
In August 2018, FASB issued ASU 2018-13 "Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement." ASU 2018-13 removes, modifies, and adds certain fair value disclosure requirements including (i) the removal of disclosures regarding amounts, reasons, and timing for transfers between Levels 1 and 2 as well as descriptions of valuation processes used for Level 3 measurements of the fair value hierarchy; (ii) modified disclosures for the timing of liquidation of investee assets; (iii) clarifies the narrative description of the measurement uncertainty of Level 3 fair value measurements at the reporting date does not need to include sensitivity of future changes; (iv) add disclosures related to changes in unrealized gains and losses in other comprehensive income for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements to also be included in the statement of comprehensive income; and (v) add disclosures for the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs. ASU 2018-13 is effective January 1, 2020 for the additional disclosures and early adoption of the removal and amended disclosures is allowed. We expect to adopt ASU 2018-13 as of January 1, 2020 and do not expect the adoption to have a material impact.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, "Leases." ASU 2016-02 and its related amendments codify Accounting Standard Codification ("ASC") 842 and provides new guidance for accounting for leases. We adopted ASC 842 as of January 1, 2019 using the transition practical expedient which allows us to recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings as of the adoption date and to initially apply the new lease standard to leases which existed as of January 1, 2019. Upon our adoption of ASC 842, as a lessee we recorded a right-of-use asset and a corresponding liability in our condensed consolidated balance sheet, as a lessor we now present combined lease and non-lease components as a single component in our condensed consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income, and this ASU did not have an impact on the opening balance of retained earnings as of the adoption date. In addition to the transition practical expedient, we elected other practical expedients during our adoption of the new lease standard. For both lessor and lessee contracts, we elected the practical expedient package to not reassess: (i) whether any expired or existing contract is a lease or contains a lease, (ii) the lease classification of any expired or existing leases, and (iii) the accounting for initial direct costs for any existing leases.
As a lessor, we also elected practical expedients to:
not separate the lease and non-lease components by class of underlying assets and account for the combined components as a single component under certain conditions, and
exclude from lease revenues the sales taxes collected from lessees and certain lessor costs paid directly by the lessee (as of the date of adoption, we did not have material sales tax collected from customers or lessor costs paid by customers).
As a lessee, we also elected the practical expedients to:
use hindsight to determine lease terms and impairment of the right-of-use assets for existing lease contracts,
not separate lease and non-lease components by class of underlying asset when certain conditions are met which is consistent with our current accounting, and
not recognize short-term lease contracts with a duration of 12 months or less (short-term leases) in our condensed consolidated balance sheet.
We earn income from the leasing of our owned real estate properties which is considered our only lessor underlying asset class. Substantially all of our real estate lessor commitments will continue to be accounted for as operating leases and the new leasing standard did not have a material impact on our property revenues. As a lessee, we enter into lease contracts to facilitate the operations and needs of our business and our operating leases primarily consist of our office facility leases which are considered
our only lessee underlying asset class. Our lessee operating lease commitments are subject to this standard and recognized as operating lease liabilities and right-of-use assets upon adoption. See Note 3, "Revenues" as it relates to our lessor leases and Note 4, "Leases" as it relates to our lessee leases for additional disclosures required by ASC 842.
The majority of our revenues are derived from real estate lease contracts which are accounted for pursuant to ASC 842 and presented as property revenues, which include rental revenue and revenue from amounts received under contractual terms for other services provided to our customers. Our other revenue stream includes fee and asset management income in accordance with other revenue guidance, ASC 606, Revenues from Contracts with Customers. A detail of these revenue streams are discussed below:
Property Revenue. We earn rental revenue from operating lease contracts for the use of dedicated spaces within owned assets which is recognized on a straight-line basis over the applicable lease term. We also earn revenues from amounts received under contractual terms for other services considered non-lease components within a lease contract, primarily consisting of utility rebillings and other transactional fees, and are charged to our residents and recognized monthly as earned. We elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components and have presented our property revenues combined based upon the lease being determined to be the predominant component. Any renewal options of real estate lease contracts are considered a new, separate contract and will be recognized at the time the option is exercised on a straight-line basis over the renewal period.
As of March 31, 2019, our average residential lease term was between twelve to fifteen months with property revenues in 2021 and beyond under our retail leases. We anticipate property revenue from our existing leases as follows:
Year ended December 31,
Remainder of 2019
Fee and Asset Management Income. We receive property management, asset management, and development and construction fees from our joint ventures for managing the venture and managing the activities, development, and construction of their operating communities. While the individual activities related to these fees may vary, the services provided are substantially similar, have the same pattern of transfer, and are considered to be individual performance obligations composed of a series of distinct services, recognized monthly as earned.
We also earn construction fees for construction management and general contracting services we provide to third-party owners of multifamily, commercial, and retail properties. These fees are recognized as we satisfy our single performance obligation over time based on a percentage-of-completion of cost basis which we believe is an accurate depiction of the transfer of control to our customers. For these contracts, significant judgment is used to estimate the cost plus margin for the project fee and our profitability on those contracts is dependent on the ability to accurately predict such factors.
Contract Balances. We record third-party construction receivables for amounts where we have unconditional rights to payments earned but not received and liabilities for amounts received but not earned. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, these contract receivables and liability balances were immaterial.
Substantially all of our operating leases recorded in our condensed consolidated balance sheet at January 1, 2019 upon adoption of ASC 842 are related to office facility leases. The lease and non-lease components are accounted for as a combined single component based upon the standalone price at the time the applicable lease is commenced and is recognized as a lease expense on a straight-line basis over the lease term. Most of our office facility leases include options to renew and generally are not included in the operating lease liabilities or right-of-use ("ROU") assets as they are not reasonably certain of being exercised. If an option to renew is exercised, it would be considered a separate contract and recognized based upon the standalone price at the time the option to renew is exercised. Variable lease payments which values are not known at lease commencement, such as executory costs of real estate taxes, property insurance, and common area maintenance, are expensed as incurred.
As of March 31, 2019, we have no significant leases executed but not yet commenced and did not record any impairment charges related to our ROU assets. See Note 13, "Commitments and Contingencies" for maturities of lease liabilities. The following is a summary of our operating lease related information:

5. Per Share Data
Basic earnings per share is computed using net income attributable to common shareholders and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share reflects common shares issuable from the assumed conversion of common share options and share awards granted and units convertible into common shares. Only those items having a dilutive impact on our basic earnings per share are included in diluted earnings per share. Our unvested share-based awards are considered participating securities and are reflected in the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share using the two-class method. The number of common share equivalent securities excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation were approximately 1.9 million and 1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. These securities, which include common share options and share awards granted and units convertible into common shares, were excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculations as they are anti-dilutive.
The following table presents information necessary to calculate basic and diluted earnings per share for the periods indicated:

6. Common Shares
In May 2017, we created an at-the market ("ATM") share offering program through which we can, but have no obligation to, sell common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $315.3 million (the "2017 ATM program"), in amounts and at times as we determine, into the existing trading market at current market prices as well as through negotiated transactions. Actual sales from time to time may depend on a variety of factors including, among others, market conditions, the trading price of our common shares, and determinations by management of the appropriate sources of funding for us. The proceeds from the sale of our common shares under the 2017 ATM program are intended to be used for general corporate purposes, which may include reducing future borrowings under our $900 million unsecured line of credit, the repayment of other indebtedness, the redemption or other repurchase of outstanding debt or equity securities, funding for development activities, and financing for acquisitions.
For the three months ended March 31, 2019, and through the date of this filing, we did not sell any shares under the 2017 ATM program. As of the date of this filing, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $312.8 million remaining available for sale under the 2017 ATM program.
We have a repurchase plan approved by our Board of Trust Managers which allows for the repurchase of up to $500 million of our common equity securities through open-market purchases, block purchases, and privately negotiated transactions. There were no repurchases during the three months ended March 31, 2019. As of the date of this filing, the remaining dollar value of our common equity securities authorized to be repurchased under this program was approximately $269.5 million.
We currently have an automatic shelf registration statement which allows us to offer common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, or warrants, and our Amended and Restated Declaration of Trust provides we may issue up to 185 million shares of beneficial interest, consisting of 175 million common shares and 10 million preferred shares. At March 31, 2019, we had approximately 96.7 million common shares outstanding, net of treasury shares and shares held in our deferred compensation arrangements, and no preferred shares outstanding. In February 2019, we issued approximately 3.4 million common shares in an underwritten equity offering and received approximately $328.4 million in net proceeds, which we used to acquire one operating property in Scottsdale, Arizona, and repay amounts on our unsecured line of credit and certain secured conventional mortgage debt.
Asset Acquisition of Operating Properties. In May 2019, we acquired one operating property comprised of 326 apartment homes located in Austin, Texas for approximately $120.4 million. In February 2019, we acquired one operating property comprised of 316 apartment homes located in Scottsdale, Arizona for approximately $97.1 million. In February 2018, we acquired one operating property comprised of 333 apartment homes located in Orlando, Florida for approximately $81.4 million. In January 2018, we acquired one operating property comprised of 358 apartment homes located in St. Petersburg, Florida for approximately $126.9 million.
Acquisition of Land. In April 2019, we acquired approximately 4.3 acres of land in Charlotte, North Carolina for approximately $10.9 million for the future development of approximately 400 apartment homes.
Our equity investments in unconsolidated joint ventures, which we account for utilizing the equity method of accounting, consists of three funds (collectively, the "Funds"). As of March 31, 2019, we had two discretionary investment funds in which we had an ownership interest of 31.3% in each of these funds. In March 2015, we completed the formation of a third fund with an unaffiliated third party for additional multifamily investments of up to $450.0 million. We have a 20% ownership interest in this third fund, and it did not own any properties as of March 31, 2019 or 2018. We provide property and asset management and other services to the Funds which own operating properties and we may also provide construction and development services to the Funds which own properties under development. The following table summarizes the combined balance sheets and statements of income data for the Funds as of and for the periods presented:

Three Months Ended March 31,
Equity in income (1)
Equity in income excludes our ownership interest of fee income from various services provided by us to the Funds.
The Funds have been funded in part with secured third-party debt and, as of March 31, 2019, we had no outstanding guarantees related to debt of the Funds.
We may earn fees for property and asset management, construction, development, and other services related to the Funds and may earn a promoted equity interest if certain thresholds are met. We eliminate fee income for services provided to the Funds to the extent of our ownership. Fees earned for these services, net of eliminations, were approximately $1.5 million and $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
Other floating rate debt included in unsecured notes (3.33%)
Unamortized debt discounts and debt issuance costs of $13.1 million and $13.9 million are included in senior unsecured and secured notes payable as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.
In March 2019, we amended and restated our $600 million unsecured credit facility extending the maturity date from August 2019 to March 2023, with two options to further extend the facility at our election for two additional six month periods, and increasing the facility from $600 million to $900 million, which may be expanded three times by up to an additional $500 million upon satisfaction of certain conditions. The interest rate on our unsecured credit facility is based upon the London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") plus a margin which is subject to change as our credit ratings change. Advances under our credit facility may be priced at the scheduled rates, or we may enter into bid rate loans with participating banks at rates below the scheduled rates. These bid rate loans have terms of 180 days or less and may not exceed the lesser of $450 million or the remaining amount available under our credit facility. Our credit facility is subject to customary financial covenants and limitations. We believe we are in compliance with all such financial covenants and limitations on the date of this filing.
Our credit facility provides us with the ability to issue up to $50 million in letters of credit. While our issuance of letters of credit does not increase our borrowings outstanding under our credit facility, it does reduce the amount available. At March 31, 2019, we had approximately $242.0 million amounts outstanding on our $900 million credit facility and we had outstanding letters of credit totaling approximately $10.1 million, leaving approximately $647.9 million available under our credit facility.
We have a $45.0 million unsecured short-term borrowing facility which matures in May 2019. The interest rate is based on LIBOR plus 0.95%. At March 31, 2019, we had no balance outstanding, leaving $45.0 million available under this facility.
During the three months ended March 31, 2019, we repaid approximately $439.3 million of secured conventional mortgage debt utilizing our unsecured credit facility and proceeds from our equity offering completed in February 2019.
We had outstanding floating rate debt of approximately $341.6 million and $175.0 million at March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, which includes our unsecured credit facility. The weighted average interest rate on such debt was approximately 3.3% and 2.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
Our indebtedness, which includes our unsecured credit facility, had a weighted average maturity of approximately 5.6 years at March 31, 2019. The table below is a summary of the maturity dates of our outstanding debt and principal amortizations, and the weighted average interest rates on such debt, at March 31, 2019:
(in millions) (1)
Includes amortization of debt discounts, debt issuance costs, net of scheduled principal payments, and all available extension options.
Includes $242.0 million outstanding on our unsecured credit facility.
10. Derivative Financial Instruments and Hedging Activities
Risk Management Objective of Using Derivatives. We are exposed to certain risks arising from both our business operations and economic conditions. We principally manage our exposures to a wide variety of business and operational risks through management of our core business activities. We manage economic risks, including interest rate, liquidity, and credit risk, primarily by managing the amount, sources, and duration of our debt funding and the use of derivative financial instruments. Specifically, we may enter into derivative financial instruments to manage exposures arising from business activities resulting in differences in the amount, timing, and duration of our known or expected cash payments principally related to our borrowings. See Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements" for a further discussion of derivative financial instruments.
Cash Flow Hedges of Interest Rate Risk. Our objectives in using interest rate derivatives are to add stability to interest expense and to manage our exposure to interest rate movements. To accomplish these objectives, we primarily use interest rate swaps and caps as part of our interest rate risk management strategy. Interest rate swaps involve the receipt of variable rate amounts from a counterparty in exchange for us making fixed-rate payments over the life of the agreements without exchange of the underlying notional amount. Interest rate caps involve the receipt of variable rate amounts from a counterparty if interest rates rise above the strike rate on the contract in exchange for an upfront premium.
Designated Hedges. The gain or loss on derivatives designated and qualifying as cash flow hedges is reported as a component of other comprehensive income or loss, and subsequently reclassified into earnings in the period the hedged forecasted transaction affects earnings and is presented in the same line item as the earnings effect of the hedged item. At March 31, 2019, we had a total of two designated hedges outstanding with a total notional value of $300.0 million to hedge a portion of anticipated future fixed rate debt issuances in 2019. At March 31, 2018, we had a total of five designated hedges outstanding with a notional value of $400.0 million to hedge a portion of future fixed rate debt issuances in 2018.
Non-Designated Hedges. Derivatives are not entered into for speculative purposes and are used to manage our exposure to interest rate movements and other identified risks. Our non-designated hedges are either specifically non-designated by management or do not meet strict hedge accounting requirements. Changes in the fair value of derivatives not designated in hedging relationships are recorded directly in earnings in interest and other income. At March 31, 2019 and 2018, we did not have any non-designated hedges outstanding.
The table below presents the fair value of our derivative financial instruments as well as their classification in the consolidated balance sheets at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018:
Derivatives subject to master netting arrangements are presented on a gross basis in our consolidated balance sheet. There were no derivative contracts in a master netting arrangement as of March 31, 2019 or December 31, 2018.
The table below presents the effect of our derivative financial instruments in the consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018:
Unrealized Gain (Loss) Recognized in Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) (“OCI”) on Derivatives
Location of Gain Reclassified from Accumulated OCI into Income
Amount of Gain Reclassified from Accumulated OCI into Income
Derivatives in Cash Flow Hedging Relationships
Interest Rate Swaps
As of March 31, 2019, the amount we expect to be reclassified into earnings in the next 12 months as a decrease to interest expense is approximately $0.2 million.
Credit-Risk-Related Contingent Features. Derivative financial investments expose us to credit risk in the event of non-performance by the counterparties under the terms of the interest rate hedge agreements. The Company has agreements with derivative counterparties that contain provisions where the Company could be declared in default on its derivative obligations if repayment of the underlying indebtedness is accelerated by the lenders due to the Company's default on the indebtedness. As of March 31, 2019, the fair value of derivatives in a net liability position, which excludes any adjustments for non-performance risk, related to these arrangements was approximately $13.4 million.
11. Share-Based Compensation and Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan
Incentive Compensation. We currently maintain the 2018 Share Incentive Plan (the “2018 Share Plan”) and the 2011 Share Incentive Plan (the “2011 Share Plan”), although no new awards may be granted under the 2011 Plan. Each of these plans were approved by our shareholders. The shares available for awards under the 2018 Share Plan are, subject to certain other limits under the plan, generally available for any type of award authorized under the 2018 Share Plan, including stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards, stock bonuses and other stock-based awards. Persons eligible to receive awards under the 2018 Share Plan include officers and employees of the Company or any of its subsidiaries, Trust Managers of the Company, and certain consultants and advisors to the Company or any of its subsidiaries. A total of 9.7 million shares (“Share Limit”) was authorized under the 2018 Share Plan. Shares issued or to be issued are counted against the Share Limit as set forth as (1) 3.45 to 1.0 for every share award, excluding stock options and share appreciation rights, granted, and (2) 1.0 to 1.0 for every share of stock option or share appreciation right granted. As of March 31, 2019, there were approximately 7.6 million common shares available under the 2018 Share Plan, which would result in approximately 2.2 million shares which could be granted pursuant to full value awards conversion ratios as defined under the plan.
Total compensation cost for option and share awards charged against income was approximately $4.5 million for each of the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018. Total capitalized compensation costs for option and share awards was approximately $0.7 million and $0.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.
A summary of activity under our share incentive plans for the year ended March 31, 2019 is shown below:
Weighted Average Exercise / Grant Price
Nonvested share awards outstanding at December 31, 2018
Total nonvested share awards outstanding at March 31, 2019
Options. Stock options other than reload options have a contractual life of ten years and vest over periods up to five years. Expense for stock options is based on grant date fair value and recognized on a straight-line method over the vesting period. There were no options outstanding as of March 31, 2019 or December 31, 2018.
Share Awards and Vesting. Share awards for employees vest over periods up to five years and are valued at the market value of the shares on the grant date. In the event the holder of the share awards attains at least age 65, with ten or more years of service ("Retirement Eligibility") before the term in which the awards are scheduled to vest, the value of the share awards is amortized from the date of grant to the individual's Retirement Eligibility date.
At March 31, 2019 and 2018, the weighted average fair value of share awards granted was $98.58 and $82.65, respectively. The total fair value of shares vested during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was approximately $18.9 million and $22.4 million, respectively. At March 31, 2019, the unamortized value of previously issued unvested share awards was approximately $25.1 million which is expected to be amortized over the next three years.
Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation. Balances within temporary equity in our consolidated balance sheets related to fully vested awards and the proportionate share of nonvested awards of participants within our Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan who were permitted to diversify their shares into other equity securities subject to a six-month holding period. In December 2018, the plan was amended and restated and effective January 1, 2019 participants in the plan were no longer able to diversify their common shares; accordingly, the fully vested share awards and the proportionate share of nonvested share awards previously eligible for diversification were reclassified on the effective date from temporary equity into additional paid-in capital in our consolidated balance sheet.
12. Net Change in Operating Accounts
The effect of changes in the operating and other accounts on cash flows from operating activities is as follows:
Three Months Ended March 31,
Change in assets:
Other assets, net
Change in liabilities:
Accounts payable and accrued expenses
Accrued real estate taxes
Change in operating accounts and other
13. Commitments and Contingencies
Construction Contracts. As of March 31, 2019, we estimate the total additional cost to complete the five consolidated projects currently under construction to be approximately $364.0 million. We expect to fund this amount through a combination of one or more of the following: cash flows generated from operations, draws on our unsecured credit facility, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement, proceeds from property dispositions, equity issued from our 2017 ATM program, other unsecured borrowings or secured mortgages.
Other Commitments and Contingencies. In the ordinary course of our business, we issue letters of intent indicating a willingness to negotiate for acquisitions, dispositions, or joint ventures and also enter into arrangements contemplating various transactions. Such letters of intent and other arrangements are non-binding as to either party unless and until a definitive contract is entered into by the parties. Even if definitive contracts relating to the purchase or sale of real property are entered into, these contracts generally provide the purchaser with time to evaluate the property and conduct due diligence, during which periods the purchaser will have the ability to terminate the contracts without penalty or forfeiture of any deposit or earnest money. There can be no assurance definitive contracts will be entered into with respect to any matter covered by letters of intent or we will consummate any transaction contemplated by any definitive contract. Furthermore, due diligence periods for real property are frequently extended as needed. An acquisition or sale of real property becomes probable at the time the due diligence period expires and the definitive contract has not been terminated. We are then at risk under a real property acquisition contract, but generally only to the extent of any earnest money deposits associated with the contract, and are obligated to sell under a real property sales contract. At March 31, 2019, we had approximately $0.8 million in earnest money deposits of which $0.4 million was non-refundable for potential acquisitions of land in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Of this $0.8 million in earnest money, $0.3 million was related to the acquisition of land in Charlotte, North Carolina which was completed in April 2019.
Lease Commitments. At March 31, 2019, we had long-term leases primarily related to office facilities. Rental expense, per ASC 842 is inclusive of lease payments and variable lease expenses, totaled approximately $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019. Rental expense, per ASC 840, was approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The following is a summary of maturities of lease liabilities as of March 31, 2019:
Year ended December 31,
Remainder of 2019
Less: discount for time value
Lease liability as of March 31, 2019
Pursuant to ASC 840, the minimum annual rental commitments as of December 31, 2018 for the years ending December 31, 2019 through 2023 are approximately $2.9 million, $3.0 million, $3.1 million, $2.7 million and $2.6 million, respectively, and approximately $4.5 million in the aggregate thereafter.
Investments in Joint Ventures. We have entered into, and may continue in the future to enter into, joint ventures or partnerships, including limited liability companies, through which we own an indirect economic interest in less than 100% of the community or land owned directly by the joint venture or partnership. Our decision whether to hold the entire interest in an apartment community or land ourselves, or to have an indirect interest in the community or land through a joint venture or partnership, is based on a variety of factors and considerations, including: (i) our projection, in some circumstances, that we will achieve higher returns on our invested capital or reduce our risk if a joint venture or partnership vehicle is used; (ii) our desire to diversify our portfolio of investments by market; (iii) our desire at times to preserve our capital resources to maintain liquidity or balance sheet strength; and (iv) the economic and tax terms required by a seller of land or of a community, who may prefer or who may require less payment if the land or community is contributed to a joint venture or partnership. Investments in joint ventures or partnerships are not limited to a specified percentage of our assets. Each joint venture or partnership agreement is individually negotiated, and our ability to operate or dispose of land or of a community in our sole discretion may be limited to varying degrees in our existing joint venture agreements and may be limited to varying degrees depending on the terms of future joint venture agreements.
We have maintained and intend to maintain our election as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. In order for us to continue to qualify as a REIT we must meet a number of organizational and operational requirements, including a requirement to distribute annual dividends to our shareholders equal to a minimum of 90% of our adjusted taxable income. As a REIT, we generally will not be subject to federal income tax on our taxable income at the corporate level to the extent such income is distributed to our shareholders annually. If our taxable income exceeds our dividends in a tax year, REIT tax rules allow us to designate dividends from the subsequent tax year in order to avoid current taxation on undistributed income. If we fail to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, we will be subject to federal and state income taxes at regular corporate rates. In addition, we may not be able to requalify as a REIT for the four subsequent taxable years. Historically, we have incurred only state and local income, franchise, and excise taxes. Taxable income from non-REIT activities managed through taxable REIT subsidiaries is subject to applicable federal, state, and local income taxes. Our consolidated operating partnerships are flow-through entities and are not subject to federal income taxes at the entity level.
We have recorded income, franchise, and excise taxes in the condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 as income tax expense. Income taxes for the three months ended March 31, 2019 primarily related to state income tax and federal taxes on certain of our taxable REIT subsidiaries. We have no significant temporary or permanent differences or tax credits associated with our taxable REIT subsidiaries.
We believe we have no uncertain tax positions or unrecognized tax benefits requiring disclosure as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2019.
15. Fair Value Measurements
Recurring Fair Value Measurements. The following table presents information about our financial instruments measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 using the inputs and fair value hierarchy discussed in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements":

Approximately $19.0 million and $12.7 million of participant cash was withdrawn from our deferred compensation plan investments during the three months ended March 31, 2019 and the year ended December 31, 2018, respectively. Approximately $40.3 million of participant restricted share units in the compensation plan were diversified into deferred compensation plan investments during the year ended December 31, 2018.
Derivative assets are included within other assets, net and derivative liabilities, which includes accrued interest, are included within other liabilities and accounts payable and accrued expenses, respectively, in our condensed consolidated balance sheets
Non-Recurring Fair Value Disclosures. The nonrecurring fair value disclosure inputs under the fair value hierarchy are discussed in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements." We completed one asset acquisition of an operating property during the three months ended March 31, 2019. We recorded the real estate assets and identifiable net below market and in-place leases at their relative fair values based upon methods similar to those used by independent appraisers of income producing properties. The fair value measurements associated with the valuation of these acquired assets represent Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy. See Note 7, "Acquisitions," for a further discussion about this acquisition.
Financial Instrument Fair Value Disclosures. The following table presents the carrying and estimated fair values of our notes payable at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, in accordance with the policies discussed in Note 2, "Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Recent Accounting Pronouncements."

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes appearing elsewhere in this report, as well as Part I, Item 1A, "Risk Factors" within our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018. Historical results and trends which might appear in the condensed consolidated financial statements should not be interpreted as being indicative of future operations.
We consider portions of this report to be "forward-looking" within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, both as amended, with respect to our expectations for future periods. Forward-looking statements do not discuss historical fact, but instead include statements related to expectations, projections, intentions, or other items relating to the future; forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, results, or events. Although we believe the expectations reflected in our forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance our expectations will be achieved. Any statements contained herein which are not statements of historical fact should be deemed forward-looking statements. Reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements as these statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors beyond our control and could differ materially from our actual results and performance.
Factors which may cause our actual results or performance to differ materially from those contemplated by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following:
Volatility in capital and credit markets, or other unfavorable changes in economic conditions, either nationally or regionally in one or more of the markets in which we operate, could adversely impact us;
Short-term leases expose us to the effects of declining market rents;
Competition could limit our ability to lease apartments or increase or maintain rental income;
We face risks associated with land holdings and related activities;
Potential reforms to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could adversely affect us;
Development, redevelopment and construction risks could impact our profitability;
Investments through joint ventures and investment funds involve risks not present in investments in which we are the sole investor;
Competition could adversely affect our ability to acquire properties;
Our acquisition strategy may not produce the cash flows expected;
Failure to qualify as a REIT could have adverse consequences;
Tax laws have recently changed and may continue to change at any time, and any such legislative or other actions could have a negative effect on us;
Litigation risks could affect our business;
Damage from catastrophic weather and other natural events could result in losses;
We are in the process of implementing a new enterprise resource planning system and problems with the design or implementation of this system could interfere with our business and operations;
A cybersecurity incident and other technology disruptions could negatively impact our business;
We have significant debt, which could have adverse consequences;
Insufficient cash flows could limit our ability to make required payments for debt obligations or pay distributions to shareholders;
Issuances of additional debt may adversely impact our financial condition;
We may be unable to renew, repay, or refinance our outstanding debt;
We may be adversely affected by changes in LIBOR reporting practices or the method in which LIBOR is determined;
Rising interest rates could both increase our borrowing costs, thereby adversely affecting our cash flows and the amounts available for distribution to our shareholders, and decrease our share price, if investors seek higher yields through other investments;
Failure to hedge effectively against interest rates may adversely affect results of operations;
Failure to maintain our current credit ratings could adversely affect our cost of funds, related margins, liquidity, and access to capital markets;
Share ownership limits and our ability to issue additional equity securities may prevent takeovers beneficial to shareholders;
Our share price will fluctuate; and
The form, timing and amount of dividend distributions in future periods may vary and be impacted by economic and other considerations.
These forward-looking statements represent our estimates and assumptions as of the date of this report, and we assume no obligation to update or supplement forward-looking statements because of subsequent events.
Camden Property Trust and all consolidated subsidiaries are primarily engaged in the ownership, management, development, redevelopment, acquisition, and construction of multifamily apartment communities. We focus on investing in markets characterized by high-growth economic conditions, strong employment, and attractive quality of life which we believe leads to higher demand and retention of our apartments. As of March 31, 2019, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 169 multifamily properties comprised of 57,517 apartment homes across the United States. In addition, we own other land holdings which we may develop into multifamily apartment communities in the future.
Our results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 reflect an increase in same store revenues of 3.7% as compared to the same period in 2018. This increase was primarily due to higher average rental rates and higher occupancy, which we believe was primarily attributable to improving job growth, favorable demographics, a manageable supply of new multifamily housing, and in part to more individuals choosing to rent versus buy as evidenced by the continued low level homeownership rate. We believe the continued low level homeownership rate is mainly attributable to the cost of and difficulty in obtaining mortgage loans as well as the changing demographic trend of certain age-sectors having a higher propensity to rent, both of which promote apartment rentals. We also believe U.S. economic and employment growth is likely to continue during 2019 and the supply of new multifamily homes will remain at manageable levels. If economic conditions were to worsen, our operating results could be adversely affected.
At March 31, 2019, we had five projects under construction to be comprised of 1,572 apartment homes, with initial occupancy currently scheduled to occur within the next 21 months. As of March 31, 2019, we estimate the total additional cost to complete the construction of these five projects is approximately $364.0 million.
Operating properties. In May 2019, we acquired one operating property comprised of 326 apartment homes located in Austin, Texas for approximately $120.4 million. In February 2019, we acquired one operating property comprised of 316 apartment homes located in Scottsdale, Arizona for approximately $97.1 million.
Land. In April 2019, we acquired approximately 4.3 acres of land in Charlotte, North Carolina for approximately $10.9 million for the future development of approximately 400 apartment homes.
In February 2019, we issued approximately 3.4 million common shares in an underwritten equity offering and received approximately $328.4 million in net proceeds. In March 2019, we amended and restated our $600 million unsecured credit facility extending the maturity date from August 2019 to March 2023, with two options to further extend the facility at our election for two additional six month periods, and increasing the facility from $600 million to $900 million, which may be expanded three times by up to an additional $500 million upon satisfaction of certain conditions.
Subject to market conditions, we intend to continue to seek opportunities to develop new communities, and to redevelop, reposition, and acquire existing communities. We also intend to evaluate our operating property and land development portfolio and plan to continue our practice of selective dispositions as market conditions warrant and opportunities arise. We expect to maintain a strong balance sheet and preserve our financial flexibility by continuing to focus on our core fundamentals which we believe are generating positive cash flows from operations, maintaining appropriate debt levels and leverage ratios, and controlling overhead costs. We intend to meet our near-term liquidity requirements through a combination of one or more of the following: cash flows generated from operations, draws on our unsecured credit facility, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement, proceeds from property dispositions, equity issued from our 2017 at-the-market ("ATM") share offering program, other unsecured borrowings or secured mortgages.
As of March 31, 2019, we had approximately $6.1 million in cash and cash equivalents and $692.9 million available under our $945.0 million unsecured credit facilities. As of the date of this filing, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $312.8 million remaining available for sale under our 2017 ATM program. Additionally, as of March 31, 2019 and through the date of this filing, we did not have any debt reaching maturity for the remainder of 2019. We believe we are well-positioned with a strong balance sheet and sufficient liquidity to fund new development, redevelopment, and other capital requirements. We will, however, continue to assess and take further actions we believe are prudent to meet our objectives and capital requirements.
We generally consider a property stabilized once it reaches 90% occupancy. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, stabilization was achieved at one consolidated operating property as follows:
Property and Location
Camden Shady Grove
Completed Construction in Lease-Up
At March 31, 2019, we had four consolidated completed operating properties in lease-up as follows:

Excludes leasing costs, which are expensed as incurred.
Properties Under Development
Our condensed consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2019 included approximately $308.0 million related to properties under development and land. Of this amount, approximately $213.0 million related to our projects currently under construction. In addition, we had approximately $95.0 million invested primarily in land held for future development related to projects we currently expect to begin constructing during the next two years.
Communities Under Construction. At March 31, 2019, we had five consolidated properties in various stages of construction as follows:
Development Pipeline Communities. At March 31, 2019, we had the following consolidated multifamily communities undergoing development activities:

Represents our estimate of total costs we expect to incur on these projects. However, forward-looking estimates are not guarantees of future performance, results, or events. Although we believe these expectations are based upon reasonable assumptions, future events rarely develop exactly as forecast, and estimates routinely require adjustment.
Results of Operations
Changes in revenues and expenses related to our operating properties from period to period are due primarily to the performance of stabilized properties in the portfolio, the lease-up of newly constructed properties, acquisitions, and dispositions. Selected weighted averages for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 are as follows:
Three Months Ended March 31,
Average monthly property revenue per apartment home
Annualized total property expenses per apartment home
Weighted average number of operating apartment homes owned 100%
Weighted average occupancy of operating apartment homes owned 100%
Management considers property net operating income ("NOI") to be an appropriate supplemental measure of operating performance to net income because it reflects the operating performance of our communities without allocation of corporate level property management overhead or general and administrative costs. We define NOI as property revenue less property operating and maintenance expenses less real estate taxes. NOI is further detailed in the Property-Level NOI table as seen below. NOI is not defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our operating performance. Additionally, NOI as disclosed by other REITs may not be comparable to our calculation.
