RETAIL PROPERTIES OF AMERICA, INC.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. Readers of this Quarterly Report should refer to the audited financial statements of Retail Properties of America, Inc. for the year ended December 31, 2017, which are included in its 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K, as certain footnote disclosures which would substantially duplicate those contained in the Annual Report have been omitted from this Quarterly Report. In the opinion of management, all adjustments necessary, all of which were of normal recurring nature, for a fair presentation have been included in this Quarterly Report.
(1) ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Retail Properties of America, Inc. (the Company) was formed on March 5, 2003 and its primary purpose is to own and operate high quality, strategically located open-air shopping centers, including properties with a mixed-use component. As of September 30, 2018, the Company owned 105 retail operating properties in the United States.
The Company has elected to be taxed as a real estate investment trust (REIT) under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code). The Company believes it qualifies for taxation as a REIT and, as such, the Company generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income that is distributed to its shareholders. If the Company fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, the Company will be subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income. Even if the Company qualifies for taxation as a REIT, the Company may be subject to certain state and local taxes on its income, property or net worth and U.S. federal income and excise taxes on its undistributed income. The Company has one wholly-owned subsidiary that has jointly elected to be treated as a taxable REIT subsidiary (TRS) and is subject to U.S. federal, state and local income taxes at regular corporate tax rates. The income tax expense incurred by the TRS did not have a material impact on the Company’s accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements.
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. For example, significant estimates and assumptions have been made with respect to useful lives of assets, capitalization of development costs, fair value measurements, provision for impairment, including estimates of holding periods, capitalization rates and discount rates (where applicable), provision for income taxes, recoverable amounts of receivables, deferred taxes and initial valuations and related amortization periods of deferred costs and intangibles, particularly with respect to property acquisitions. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
All share amounts and dollar amounts in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto, are stated in thousands with the exception of per share amounts and per square foot amounts.
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, as well as all wholly-owned subsidiaries and any consolidated variable interest entities (VIEs). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Wholly-owned subsidiaries generally consist of limited liability companies, limited partnerships and statutory trusts.
The Company’s property ownership as of September 30, 2018 is summarized below:

(2) SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Refer to the Company’s 2017 Annual Report on Form 10-K for a summary of its significant accounting policies. Except as disclosed below, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies in the nine months ended September 30, 2018.
Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, on a modified retrospective basis. This new guidance replaces existing revenue recognition standards. The core principle of this standard is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Substantially all of the Company’s revenue follows the existing leasing guidance and is not impacted by the adoption of this standard, however, the sale of investment property is required to follow the new guidance as well as ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets discussed below. The sale of investment property is reported as “gain on sales of investment properties” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income (loss) and further discussed in Note 4 – Dispositions. The adoption of ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as substantially all of its revenue falls outside of the scope of this guidance.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets, on a modified retrospective basis. This new pronouncement, which adds guidance for partial sales of nonfinancial assets and clarifies the scope of Subtopic 610-20, Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets, applies to the derecognition of all nonfinancial assets (including real estate) for which the counterparty is not a customer. The sale of investment property is reported as “gain on sales of investment properties” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income (loss) and further discussed in Note 4 – Dispositions. The adoption of this pronouncement did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements as the adoption of the new guidance did not result in a change to the timing or amount of gain recognized upon disposition as compared to the previous guidance.
Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall, on a prospective basis. This new guidance requires companies to disclose the fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities measured at amortized cost in accordance with the exit price notion, which is consistent with the Company’s existing practices, and no longer requires disclosure of the methods and significant assumptions used, including any changes, to estimate fair value. In addition, companies are required to disclose all financial assets and financial liabilities grouped by (i) measurement category and (ii) form of financial instrument. The adoption of this pronouncement did not have a material effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements.
The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging, as of January 1, 2018. This new guidance amends the designation and measurement guidance for qualifying hedging relationships and the presentation of hedge results in an entity’s financial statements. It also eliminates the requirement to separately measure and report hedge ineffectiveness. Entities are now required to present the earnings effect of the hedging instrument in the same income statement line item in which they report the earnings effect of the hedged item. In addition, entities may perform the initial quantitative assessment of hedge effectiveness at any time after hedge designation, but no later than the first quarterly effectiveness testing date, and subsequent assessments of hedge effectiveness may be performed qualitatively unless facts and circumstances change. Disclosure requirements have been modified to include a tabular disclosure related to the effect of hedging instruments on the income statement and the requirement to disclose the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of such instruments has been eliminated. The adoption of this pronouncement resulted in a cumulative effect adjustment of $12 to accumulated other comprehensive income and accumulated distributions in excess of earnings related to eliminating the separate measurement of ineffectiveness. The amended presentation and disclosure guidance is required only prospectively.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued ASU 2016-02, Leases. This new guidance is effective January 1, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The pronouncement will require lessees to recognize a liability to make lease payments and a right-of-use (ROU) asset, initially measured at the present value of lease payments, for both operating and financing leases. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, lessees will be permitted to make an accounting policy election by class of

(Unaudited)

underlying asset to not recognize lease liabilities and lease assets. The guidance allows lessors to make an accounting policy election, by class of underlying asset, to not separate non-lease components from lease components if certain requirements are met but requires lessors to recognize real estate tax expense and recovery income for tenants that self-pay real estate taxes. The guidance also provides an optional transition method which would allow entities to initially apply the new guidance in the period of adoption, recognizing a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings, if necessary, and provides a package of three practical expedients whereby companies will not be required to reassess (i) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (ii) the lease classification (operating vs. capital/financing leases) for any expired or existing leases and (iii) initial direct costs for any existing leases (Package of Three Practical Expedients).
Upon adoption, the Company will recognize a lease liability and an ROU asset for operating leases where it is the lessee, such as ground leases and office leases. The Company is in the process of evaluating the inputs required to calculate the amounts that will be recorded on its balance sheet for each lease. For leases with a term of 12 months or less, the Company expects to make an accounting policy election by class of underlying asset to not recognize lease liabilities and lease assets. For leases where it is the lessor, the Company expects that accounting for lease components will be largely unchanged from existing GAAP and to elect the practical expedient to not separate non-lease components from lease components. The Company also expects to record real estate tax expense and tenant recovery income, as well as real estate tax payables and recovery receivables, for tenants that pay real estate taxes directly to the taxing authorities. This will gross-up the Company’s statement of operations and balance sheet but will have no net impact on the Company’s net income attributable to common shareholders and no impact to its cash flows. Only incremental direct leasing costs may be capitalized under the new guidance, which is consistent with the Company’s existing policies. The Company expects to adopt this new guidance on January 1, 2019, apply the requirements as of that date and elect the Package of Three Practical Expedients. The Company will continue to evaluate the impact of this guidance until it becomes effective, but the Company does not expect the guidance regarding capitalization of leasing costs will have any effect on its condensed consolidated financial statements.
In June 2018, the SEC issued a final rule, Inline XBRL Filing of Tagged Data, which will require the use of the Inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL) format for the submission of operating company financial statement information. In addition, the final rule will eliminate the requirement for operating companies to post “Interactive Data Files” (i.e., machine-readable computer code that presents information in XBRL format) on their websites. Large accelerated filers that prepare their financial statements in accordance with GAAP will be subject to Inline XBRL requirements beginning with the fiscal period ending on or after June 15, 2019. The Company expects to use Inline XBRL starting with its Form 10-Q for the quarter ending June 30, 2019.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses. This new guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted beginning January 1, 2019, and replaces the current incurred loss impairment methodology with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. Financial assets that are measured at amortized cost will be required to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected with an allowance for credit losses deducted from the amortized cost basis. In addition, an entity must consider broader information in developing its expected credit loss estimate, including the use of forecasted information. During the three months ended September 30, 2018, the FASB issued a proposed ASU, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses, which, if adopted, would clarify that receivables arising from operating leases are not within the scope of this new guidance. Generally, the pronouncement requires a modified retrospective method of adoption. The Company will continue to evaluate the impact of this guidance until it becomes effective.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement. This new guidance is effective January 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted, and provides new, and in some cases eliminates or modifies the existing disclosure requirements on fair value measurements. Public entities will now be required to disclose the following: (i) the changes in unrealized gains and losses for the period included in other comprehensive income for recurring Level 3 fair value measurements held at the end of the reporting period and (ii) the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. In addition, public entities will no longer be required to disclose the following: (i) the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy, (ii) the policy for timing of transfers between levels and (iii) the valuation processes for Level 3 fair value measurements. The new pronouncement also clarifies and modifies certain existing provisions to promote the appropriate exercise of discretion by entities when considering fair value measurement disclosures and clarifies that materiality is an appropriate consideration when evaluating disclosure requirements. As permitted by the new pronouncement, the Company has removed the discussion of its valuation processes for Level 3 fair value measurements in this Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018. No other disclosures were removed as the Company did not have any transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy during the current and comparative periods. The Company expects to adopt the new disclosures on a prospective basis as of January 1, 2020.

This property was acquired through two consolidated VIEs and was used to facilitate an Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange (1031 Exchange).
(b)
The wholly-owned multi-tenant retail operating property formerly known as Boulevard at the Capital Centre, which is located in Largo, Maryland, was previously subject to an approximately 70 acre long-term ground lease with a third party. The Company completed a transaction whereby it received the fee interest in approximately 50 acres of the underlying land in exchange for which (i) the Company paid $1,939 and (ii) the term of the ground lease with respect to the remaining approximately 20 acres was shortened to nine months. The Company derecognized building and improvements of $11,347 related to the remaining ground lease, recognized the fair value of land received of $15,200 and recorded a deferred gain of $2,524 as of September 30, 2017, which was recognized during the three months ended December 31, 2017 upon the expiration of the ground lease on approximately 20 acres. The total number of properties in the Company’s portfolio was not affected by this transaction.
(c)
The Company acquired the remaining five phases under contract, including the development rights for an additional 123 residential units for a total of 408 units, at its One Loudoun Downtown multi-tenant retail operating property, which were accounted for as asset acquisitions. The total number of properties in the Company’s portfolio was not affected by these transactions.
(d)
Acquisition price does not include capitalized closing costs and adjustments totaling $2,190.

Variable Interest Entities
During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company entered into an agreement with a qualified intermediary related to a 1031 Exchange. The Company loaned $87,452 to the VIEs to acquire Main Street Promenade on January 13, 2017. The 1031 Exchange was completed during the year ended December 31, 2017 and, in accordance with applicable provisions of the Code, within 180 days after the acquisition date of the property. At the completion of the 1031 Exchange, the sole membership interests of the VIEs were assigned to the Company in satisfaction of the outstanding loan, resulting in the entities being wholly owned by the Company and no longer considered VIEs.
Prior to the completion of the 1031 Exchange, the Company was deemed to be the primary beneficiary of each VIE as it had the ability to direct the activities of the VIEs that most significantly impact their economic performance and had all of the risks and rewards of ownership. Accordingly, the Company consolidated the VIEs. No value or income was attributed to the noncontrolling interest. The assets of the VIEs consisted of the investment property, Main Street Promenade, which was operated by the Company.
(4) DISPOSITIONS
On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers and ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets on a modified retrospective basis. The dispositions completed during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 were not considered to be contracts with customers as defined in ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as they are not considered an output of the Company’s ordinary business activities. Rather, the dispositions follow the new guidance of ASU 2017-05, Other Income–Gains and Losses from the Derecognition of Nonfinancial Assets. The adoption on a modified retrospective basis requires the guidance and related disclosure requirements of ASU 2017-05 to be followed for contracts related to the sale of investment properties completed during the nine months ended September 30, 2018. Disclosures related to periods prior to January 1, 2018 for the sale of investment properties are not impacted by the adoption.
Under the new guidance, derecognition of nonfinancial assets and in substance nonfinancial assets, including real estate, and the related gains on sale of investment properties are recognized when (i) the parties to the sale contract have approved the contract and are committed to perform their respective obligations; (ii) the Company can identify each party’s rights regarding the property transferred; (iii) the Company can identify the payment terms for the property transferred; (iv) the contract has commercial substance (that is, the risk, timing or amount of the entity’s future cash flows is expected to change as a result of the contract); and (v) the Company has satisfied its performance obligations by transferring control of the property. Typically, the timing of payment and satisfaction of performance obligations occur simultaneously on the disposition date upon transfer of the property’s ownership.

The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2017-12, Derivatives and Hedging, as of January 1, 2018. The adoption eliminated the requirement to separately measure and report hedge ineffectiveness. The Company is now required to present the earnings effect of its hedging instruments in the same income statement line item in which it reports the earnings effect of the hedged items. Disclosures related to periods prior to January 1, 2018 are not impacted by the adoption.
The Company’s objective in using interest rate derivatives is to manage its exposure to interest rate movements and add stability to interest expense. To accomplish this objective, the Company uses interest rate swaps as part of its interest rate risk management strategy. Interest rate swaps designated as cash flow hedges involve the receipt of variable rate amounts from a counterparty in exchange for the Company making fixed rate payments over the life of the agreement without exchange of the underlying notional amount.
As of September 30, 2018, the Company used five interest rate swaps to hedge the variable cash flows associated with variable rate debt. Changes in fair value of the derivatives that are designated and that qualify as cash flow hedges are recorded in “Accumulated other comprehensive income” and are reclassified to interest expense as interest payments are made on the Company’s variable rate debt. Over the next 12 months, the Company estimates that an additional $1,509 will be reclassified as a decrease to interest expense. Prior to January 1, 2018, only the effective portion of changes in fair value of the derivatives that were designated and that qualified as cash flow hedges was recorded in “Accumulated other comprehensive income” and the ineffective portion of the change in fair value of the derivatives was recognized directly in earnings.
