"Strong tenant demand for space was the key driver for our growth in 2013, both internally and externally, which resulted in another year of solid financial performance for Tanger," commented Steven B. Tanger, President & Chief Executive Officer. "Retailers are attracted to the outlet industry by its low relative cost of occupancy and a desire to connect with an increasing value-driven consumer.  They partner with Tanger as an industry leader with a 33 year track record of developing, operating, and marketing high-quality outlet centers," he added.

FFO for all periods shown was impacted by a number of charges as described in the summary below (in thousands, except per share amounts):

Investment Activities Provide Potential Future Growth

During 2013, Tanger opened one new outlet center, expanded two of its existing properties, and acquired a controlling interest in a property that had previously been held within an unconsolidated joint venture.  The company currently has five development projects under construction. Tanger commenced construction on four of these projects during 2013, and in January 2014 announced its ownership interest in a joint venture developing a new outlet center, the construction of which commenced in September 2013.

In early April 2013, Tanger hosted grand opening festivities for a small expansion of Tanger Outlets Gonzales in Gonzales, Louisiana. Originally developed by Tanger in 1992, this fully-leased expansion added approximately 40,000 square feet, bringing the property's total gross leasable area to approximately 319,000 square feet.

In May 2013, Tanger and its 50/50 co-owner broke ground on two Canadian development projects. On May 15, 2013, construction commenced on Tanger Outlets Ottawa, the first ground up development of a Tanger Outlet Center in Canada.  Ottawa is the nation's capital and its fourth largest city, with 1.2 million residents and 7.5 million annual visitors. Located in suburban Kanata off the TransCanada Highway (Highway 417) at Palladium Drive, the 303,000 square foot center will feature approximately 80 brand name and designer outlet stores and is currently expected to open in time for the 2014 holiday shopping season.

On May 16, 2013, the co-owners broke ground on a major expansion and renovation of Tanger Outlets Cookstown. Cookstown is on the northern end of the Greater Toronto Area. The center is directly off Highway 400 at Highway 89, the gateway to the highest concentration of vacation homes in Southern Ontario's cottage country. The project will expand the 156,000 square foot property, which was acquired in December 2011, to nearly double its size to approximately 310,000 square feet when complete. Currently expected to be a holiday 2014 opening, the project will expand the property's tenancy by approximately 35 new brand name and designer outlet stores, while creating an updated exterior for the existing space consistent with that of the expansion.

On August 30, 2013, Tanger acquired an additional one-third ownership interest in Tanger Outlets Deer Park, located in New York on Long Island. Following the acquisition, Tanger and the minority owner restructured certain aspects of the company's ownership of the property, whereby Tanger receives substantially all of the economics generated by the property and has substantial control over the property's financial activities. The center offers over 90 outlet stores, approximately 10 restaurants, and a 16 screen movie theater which serve the 18 million people that reside within a 60 mile radius. Tanger has had an ownership interest in the property, which opened in October 2008, since the development stage. The total consideration consisted of cash, debt, and Class A limited partnership units of Tanger Properties Limited Partnership and represented a cap rate of approximately 5.6%. As a result of the acquisition of a controlling interest, the property is now consolidated for financial reporting purposes.

On September 20, 2013, Tanger and its 50/50 joint venture partner broke ground on a new outlet center in the Charlotte, North Carolina market.  The center will be located eight miles southwest of uptown Charlotte at the interchange of I-485 and Steele Creek Road (NC Highway 160), the two major thoroughfares for the city. The approximately 400,000 square foot project will feature approximately 90 brand name and designer stores and is expected to open during the third quarter of 2014.

On September 26, 2013, the company broke ground at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut on Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods. Tanger owns a controlling interest in the project, which will be consolidated for financial reporting purposes. The center will feature approximately 80 brand name and designer tenants.  The approximately 314,000 square foot project will be suspended above ground to join the resort's two casino floors, which attract millions of visitors each year. The company currently expects the property to open in the second quarter of 2015.

A small expansion of Tanger Outlets Sevierville in Sevierville, Tennessee opened in September 2013.  Originally acquired in 1997, the property's gross leasable area was expanded by approximately 20,000 square feet to approximately 438,000 square feet.

Tanger and its 50/50 joint venture partner hosted the grand opening of Tanger Outlets National Harbor on November 22, 2013, just in time for the holiday shopping season.  Located within the National Harbor waterfront resort in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, the center is accessible from I-95, I-295, I-495, and the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. The nation's capital welcomes approximately 33 million tourist visitors annually. The center includes approximately 336,000 square feet and features approximately 80 brand name and designer outlet stores. The property's upscale mix of retailers includes Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein, Coach, Diane von Furstenberg, Elie Tahari, Halston Heritage, Hugo Boss, J. Crew, Peter Millar, and many other brand names.

On January 23, 2014, Tanger announced its plans to develop Tanger Outlets Savannah through a 50/50 joint venture agreement. In September 2013, the partner commenced construction on the property, which will include approximately 385,000 square feet and feature approximately 90 upscale brand name and designer outlet stores. The highly visible site is located on I-95, just north of I-16 in Pooler, Georgia, adjacent to the City of Savannah, and near the Savannah International Airport, which welcomes 1.6 million travelers per year.  The company expects the center's location to capitalize on the Tanger Outlets brand equity in the region and to provide marketing and management synergies with our centers in Charleston, Hilton Head, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Commerce and Locust Grove, Georgia.

The company also intends to develop an approximately 350,000 square foot wholly-owned outlet center in the Grand Rapids, Michigan market. The site is located 11 miles south of downtown Grand Rapids at the southwest quadrant of US-131 and 84th Street in Byron Center, Michigan with visibility from both roads.  The center will be located approximately 30 miles east of Lake Michigan and its lakeside communities that are frequented by vacationers. Currently, Tanger estimates the property will open in the second half of 2015.

In addition, Tanger intends to expand Tanger Outlets Westgate in Glendale, Arizona by approximately 65,000 square feet and to expand Tanger Outlets Branson by approximately 25,000 square feet.  Currently, both expansions are expected to open in time for the 2014 holiday season.

Tanger has a robust pipeline of additional development sites for which current predevelopment activities are ongoing, some of which the company has not yet announced. Previously announced projects include planned new developments in Columbus, Ohio; and Scottsdale, Arizona; as well as a planned expansion of its existing asset in Park City, Utah.

Balance Sheet Summary

During 2013, Tanger's investment grade credit ratings were upgraded by both Moody's Investor Service and Standard & Poor's.  Moody's upgraded its rating to Baa1 with a stable outlook on May 23, 2013, and on May 29, 2013, Standard & Poor's upgraded its rating to BBB+ with a stable outlook.

On July 1, 2013, the Tanger Outlets Houston joint venture closed on a mortgage loan secured by the property. Construction of the property was initially funded with equity contributions by the partners. The 50/50 joint venture received total loan proceeds of $65 million and distributed the proceeds equally to the partners. Tanger used its share of the proceeds to reduce amounts outstanding under its unsecured lines of credit. The mortgage loan requires interest-only payments at 150 basis points over LIBOR and matures July 1, 2017, with the option to extend the maturity for one additional year.

On October 24, 2013, the company closed on amendments to its unsecured lines of credit, including extending the maturity, reducing the overall borrowing costs, and improving the related debt covenants. Maturity of these facilities was extended from November 10, 2015 to October 24, 2017, with the ability to further extend the maturity for an additional year at the company's option. The annual commitment fee, which is payable on the full $520 million in loan commitments, was reduced from 17.5 basis points to 15.0 basis points, and the interest rate spread over LIBOR was reduced from 110 basis points to 100 basis points.

On October 28, 2013, Tanger entered into interest rate swap agreements to reduce the company's floating rate debt exposure by locking the interest rate on the $150 million Deer Park mortgage. The loan bears interest at LIBOR plus 150 basis points and matures in August 2018. The interest rate swap agreements fix the base rate at an average of 1.3%, creating an effective interest rate for the loan of 2.8% through August 2018.

On November 25, 2013, Tanger completed a $250 million Senior Notes offering. The Notes mature December 1, 2023, bear interest at 3.875% and were priced at 98.36% of the principal amount to yield 4.076%. The net proceeds were used to repay borrowings under the company's unsecured lines of credit.

As of December 31, 2013, Tanger had a total market capitalization of approximately $4.5 billion including $1.3 billion of debt outstanding, equating to a 29.4% debt-to-total market capitalization ratio.  The company had $16.2 million outstanding on its $520.0 million in available unsecured lines of credit and 79.4% of Tanger's debt was at fixed rates. For the year ended 2013, Tanger maintained an interest coverage ratio of 4.36 times.

Tanger Expects Solid FFO Per Share In 2014

Based on Tanger's internal budgeting process, the company's view on current market conditions, and the strength and stability of its core portfolio, management currently believes its net income available to common shareholders for 2014 will be between $0.78 and $0.84 per share and its FFO available to common shareholders for 2014 will be between $1.93 and $1.99 per share.

The company's earnings estimates reflect the incremental interest expense of approximately $0.07 per share related to the company's November 2013 Senior Notes offering, a projected increase in same-center net operating income of approximately 3%, and average general and administrative expense of approximately $10.5 million to $11.0 million per quarter. The company's same center net operating income projection takes into consideration a 500,000 square foot, or 23%, decrease in the amount of leased space expiring in 2014 compared to 2013.  

The projected increase in general and administrative expense compared to 2013 is primarily driven by an increase in long-term equity based compensation for our senior leadership team. Over time, our goal is to increase the percentage of overall compensation that is performance based equity rather than cash, further aligning the interests of management with those of the shareholders.

The company's estimates do not include the impact of any rent termination fees, any potential refinancing transactions, the sale of any out parcels of land, or the sale or acquisition of any properties. The following table provides a reconciliation of estimated diluted net income per share to estimated diluted FFO per share:

a.

FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure. The most directly comparable GAAP measure is net income (loss), to which it is reconciled. We believe that for a clear understanding of our operating results, FFO should be considered along with net income as presented elsewhere in this report. FFO is presented because it is a widely accepted financial indicator used by certain investors and analysts to analyze and compare one equity REIT with another on the basis of operating performance. FFO is generally defined as net income (loss), computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, before extraordinary items and gains (losses) on sale or disposal of depreciable operating properties, plus depreciation and amortization uniquely significant to real estate, impairment losses on depreciable real estate of consolidated real estate and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, including depreciation and amortization, and impairment losses on investments in unconsolidated joint ventures driven by a measurable decrease in the fair value of depreciable real estate held by the unconsolidated joint ventures. We caution that the calculation of FFO may vary from entity to entity and as such the presentation of FFO by us may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other reporting companies. FFO does not represent net income or cash flow from operations as defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of operating performance or to cash flows from operations as a measure of liquidity. FFO is not necessarily indicative of cash flows available to fund dividends to shareholders and other cash needs.


b.

The exchangeable operating partnership units (noncontrolling interest in operating partnership) are not dilutive on earnings per share computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.


c.

Excludes the centers in which we have ownership interests in but are held in unconsolidated joint ventures.
