CAMDEN PROPERTY TRUST
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

1. Description of Business
Business. Formed on May 25, 1993, Camden Property Trust, a Texas real estate investment trust (“REIT”), is primarily engaged in the ownership, management, development, 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, 2013, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 201 multifamily properties comprised of 67,850 apartment homes across the United States. Of the 201 properties, nine properties were under development, and when completed will consist of a total of 2,845 apartment homes. In addition, we own land parcels we may develop into multifamily apartment 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 continuously 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) under the remaining consolidation guidance relating to real estate entities. If we are the general partner of a limited partnership, or manager of a limited liability company, we also consider the consolidation guidance relating to the rights of limited partners (non-managing members) to assess whether any rights held by the limited partners overcome the presumption of control by us.

Interim Financial Reporting. We have prepared these 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 financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes included in our 2012 Annual Report on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments and eliminations, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair representation of our financial statements for the interim period reported have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the full year.

Allocations of Purchase Price. Upon acquisition of real estate, we allocate the fair value between 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 allocating these values we apply methods similar to those used by independent appraisers of income-producing property. Upon the acquisition of a controlling interest of an investment in an unconsolidated joint venture, such joint venture is consolidated and our initial equity investment is remeasured to fair value at the date the controlling interest is acquired; any differences between the carrying value of the previously held equity investment is recognized in earnings at the time of obtaining control. Transaction costs associated with the acquisition of operating real estate assets are expensed. 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 unamortized value of in-place leases at March 31, 2013 was approximately $0.7 million and is included in other assets, net, in our condensed consolidated balance sheet. Amortization expense related to the value of in-place leases for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $1.9 million and $3.6 million, respectively. The unamortized value of above or below market leases at March 31, 2013 was $0.3 million and is included in other liabilities in our condensed consolidated balance sheet. We recognized approximately $0.4 million of revenues related to the value of above or below market leases during each of the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012. Estimates of fair value of acquired debt are based upon interest rates available for the issuance of debt with similar terms and remaining maturities.
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 exists 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 discounted and undiscounted cash flows, trends, strategic decisions regarding future development plans, and other factors in our assessment of whether impairment conditions exist. When impairment exists, the long-lived asset is adjusted to its fair value. While we believe our estimates of future cash flows are reasonable, different assumptions regarding a number of factors, including market rents, economic conditions, and occupancies, could significantly affect these estimates. In estimating fair value, management

10


uses appraisals, management estimates, and discounted cash flow calculations which utilize inputs from a marketplace participant’s perspective. 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.

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 on 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. 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 activities necessary to get the underlying real estate ready 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. Upon substantial completion of the apartment homes, the total capitalized development cost for the apartment homes and the associated land is transferred to buildings and improvements and land, respectively.

As discussed above, carrying charges are principally interest and real estate taxes capitalized as part of properties under development. Capitalized interest was approximately $3.2 million and $3.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Capitalized real estate taxes were approximately $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Where possible, we stage our construction to allow leasing and occupancy during the construction period, which we believe minimizes the duration of the lease-up period following completion of construction. Our accounting policy related to properties in the development and leasing phase is to expense all operating expenses associated with completed apartment homes. We capitalize renovation and improvement costs we believe extend the economic lives of depreciable property. Capital expenditures subsequent to initial construction are capitalized and depreciated over their estimated useful lives.

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
5-35 years
Furniture, fixtures, equipment, and other
3-20 years
Intangible assets (in-place leases and above and below market leases)
underlying lease term

Discontinued Operations. A property is classified as a discontinued operation when (i) the operations and cash flows of the property can be clearly distinguished and have been or will be eliminated from our ongoing operations; (ii) the property has either been disposed of or is classified as held for sale; and (iii) we will not have any significant continuing involvement in the operations of the property after the disposal transaction. Significant judgments are involved in determining whether a property meets the criteria for discontinued operations reporting and the period in which these criteria are met. A property is classified as held for sale when (i) management commits to a plan to sell and it is actively marketed; (ii) it is available for immediate sale in its present condition and the sale is expected to be completed within one year; and (iii) it is unlikely significant changes to the plan will be made or the plan will be withdrawn.

11


The results of operations for properties sold during the period or classified as held for sale at the end of the current period are classified as discontinued operations in the current and prior periods. The property-specific components of earnings classified as discontinued operations include separately identifiable property-specific revenues, expenses, depreciation, and interest expense, if any. The gain or loss resulting from the eventual disposal of the held for sale properties is also classified within discontinued operations. Real estate assets held for sale are measured at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell and are presented separately in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Subsequent to classification of a property as held for sale, no further depreciation is recorded. Properties sold by our unconsolidated entities are not included in discontinued operations and related gains or losses are reported as a component of equity in income of joint ventures.
Gains on sale of real estate are recognized using the full accrual or partial sale methods, as applicable, in accordance with GAAP, provided various criteria relating to the terms of sale and any subsequent involvement with the real estate sold are satisfied.
Fair Value. For financial assets and liabilities recorded at fair value on a recurring or nonrecurring basis, fair value is the price we would receive to sell an asset, or pay to transfer a liability, in an orderly transaction with a market participant at the measurement date. 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 Disclosures. The valuation methodology we use to measure our deferred compensation plan investment at fair value on a recurring basis is 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.
Financial Instrument Fair Value Disclosures. In calculating the fair value of our notes payable, interest rate and spread assumptions reflect current creditworthiness and market conditions available for the issuance of notes payable with similar terms and remaining maturities. These financial instruments utilize Level 2 inputs.
Non-recurring Fair Value Disclosures. 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 when they are impaired. The fair value methodologies used to measure long-lived assets are described above at “Asset Impairment.” The inputs associated with the valuation of long-lived assets are generally included in Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.
3. Per Share Data
Basic earnings per share are computed using net income attributable to common shareholders and the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share reflect 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 was approximately 3.0 million and 1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, 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 calculation as they are anti-dilutive.

4. Common Shares

In May 2012, 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 $300 million (the "2012 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. We intend to use the net proceeds from the 2012 ATM program for general corporate purposes, which may include funding for development and acquisition activities,

13


the redemption or other repurchase of outstanding debt or equity securities, reducing future borrowings under our $500 million unsecured line of credit, and the repayment of other indebtedness.

The following table presents activity under our 2012 ATM program for the three months ended March 31, 2013 (in thousands, except per share amounts):

At March 31, 2013, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $114 million remaining available for sale under the 2012 ATM program. No additional shares were sold subsequent to quarter end through the date of this filing.

In May 2011, we created an ATM share offering program through which we could, but had no obligation to, sell common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $300 million (the “2011 ATM program”), in amounts and at times as we determined, into the existing trading market at current market prices as well as through negotiated transactions. The net proceeds resulting from the 2011 ATM program were used to redeem all of our outstanding redeemable perpetual preferred units and for other general corporate purposes, which included funding for development activities, financing of acquisitions, repayment of notes payable and borrowings under our $500 million unsecured line of credit. The 2011 ATM program terminated in the second quarter of 2012, and no further common shares are available for sale under the 2011 ATM program.

We currently have an automatic shelf registration statement which allows us to offer, from time to time, an unlimited amount of common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, or warrants. Our Amended and Restated Declaration provides we may issue up to 185 million shares of beneficial interest, consisting of 175 million common shares and 10 million preferred shares.
5. Property Acquisitions, Discontinued Operations, and Assets Held for Sale
Acquisitions. We had no acquisitions of operating properties or land parcels in the first quarter of 2013. During April 2013, we acquired one operating property, Camden Post Oak comprised of 356 apartment homes, located in Houston, Texas for approximately $108.5 million. As of the date of this filing, the initial accounting for the purchase price allocation has not been completed as we are awaiting the completion of our analysis of the net assets acquired which we expect to be completed by the end of the second quarter 2013.

Discontinued Operations and Assets Held for Sale. For the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, income from discontinued operations included the results of operations of one operating property, Camden Live Oaks, comprised of 770 apartment homes sold in January 2013 and also the results of operations of one other operating property, Camden Reserve, comprised of 526 apartment homes, classified as held for sale as of March 31, 2013. This property was sold in April 2013 for approximately $40.5 million.

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, income from discontinued operations also included the results of operations of eleven operating properties, Camden Vista Valley, Camden Landings, Camden Creek, Camden Laurel Ridge, Camden Steeplechase, Camden Sweetwater, Camden Valleybrook, Camden Park Commons, Camden Forest, Camden Baytown, and Camden Westview, comprised of 3,213 apartment homes, sold during 2012.

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we sold two land parcels comprised of an aggregate of approximately 3.7 acres, adjacent to current development communities in Atlanta, Georgia and Houston, Texas, for approximately $6.6 million. We recognized a gain of approximately $0.7 million relating to these land sales.

6. Investments in Joint Ventures
As of March 31, 2013, our equity investments in unconsolidated joint ventures, which we account for utilizing the equity method of accounting, consisted of four joint ventures, with our ownership percentages ranging from 15% to 20%. We currently provide property management services to each of these joint ventures which own operating properties, and we may provide construction and development services to the joint ventures which own properties under development. The following table summarizes aggregate balance sheet and statement of income data for the unconsolidated joint ventures as of and for the periods presented:

Equity in income excludes our ownership interest of fee income from various property management services provided by us to our joint ventures.

The joint ventures in which we have a partial interest have been funded in part with secured third-party debt. As of March 31, 2013, we had no outstanding guarantees related to loans of our unconsolidated joint ventures.

We may earn fees for property management, construction, development, and other services related to joint ventures in which we own an interest. Fees earned for these services amounted to approximately $2.7 million for each of the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012. We eliminate fee income for services provided to these joint ventures to the extent of our ownership.

In March 2013, one of our unconsolidated joint ventures entered into an agreement to sell its 14 operating properties, comprised of 3,098 apartment homes, located in Las Vegas, Nevada, to an unaffiliated third party. The assets relating to this joint venture are under contract to be sold in the second quarter of 2013.

We have a $500 million unsecured credit facility which matures in September 2015 with an option to extend at our election to September 2016.  Additionally, we have the option to increase this credit facility to $750 million by either adding additional banks to the credit facility or obtaining the agreement of the existing banks in the credit facility to increase their commitments. The interest rate is based upon LIBOR plus a margin which is subject to change as our credit ratings change. Advances under the line of credit 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 $250 million or the remaining amount available under the line of credit. The line of credit is subject to customary financial covenants and limitations. We are in compliance with all such financial covenants and limitations.

Our line of credit provides us with the ability to issue up to $100 million in letters of credit. While our issuance of letters of credit does not increase our borrowings outstanding under our line of credit, it does reduce the amount available. At March 31, 2013, we had no balances outstanding on our $500 million unsecured line of credit. However, we had outstanding letters of credit totaling approximately $11.6 million, leaving approximately $488.4 million available under our unsecured line of credit. As an alternative to our unsecured line of credit, from time to time we may borrow using an unsecured overnight borrowing facility. Our use of short term borrowings does not decrease the amount available under our unsecured line of credit.

In January 2013, we repaid a 4.95% secured conventional mortgage note which was scheduled to mature on April 1, 2013 for approximately $26.1 million.

At March 31, 2013 and 2012, the weighted average interest rate on our floating rate debt was approximately 1.1%.

Our indebtedness had a weighted average maturity of 6.8 years at March 31, 2013. Scheduled repayments on outstanding debt, including our line of credit and scheduled principal amortizations, and the weighted average interest rate on maturing debt at March 31, 2013 were as follows:

8. Share-based Compensation
Incentive Compensation. During the second quarter of 2011, our Board of Trust Managers adopted, and on May 11, 2011 our shareholders approved, the 2011 Share Incentive Plan of Camden Property Trust (the “2011 Share Plan”). Under the 2011 Share Plan, we may issue up to a total of approximately 9.1 million fungible units (the “Fungible Pool Limit”), which is comprised of approximately 5.8 million new fungible units plus approximately 3.3 million fungible units previously available for issuance under our 2002 share incentive plan based on a 3.45 to 1.0 fungible unit-to full value award conversion ratio. Fungible units represent the baseline for the number of shares available for issuance under the 2011 Share Plan. Different types of awards are counted differently against the Fungible Pool Limit, as follows:
 
Each share issued or to be issued in connection with an award, other than an option, right or other award which does not deliver the full value at grant of the underlying shares, will be counted against the Fungible Pool Limit as 3.45 fungible pool units;
Options and other awards which do not deliver the full value at grant of the underlying shares and which expire more than five years from date of grant will be counted against the Fungible Pool Limit as one fungible pool unit; and
Options, rights and other awards which do not deliver the full value at date of grant and expire five years or less from the date of grant will be counted against the Fungible Pool Limit as 0.83 of a fungible pool unit.

At March 31, 2013, approximately 6.7 million fungible units were available under the 2011 Share Plan, which results in approximately 2.0 million common shares which may be granted pursuant to full value awards based on the 3.45 to 1.0 fungible unit-to-full value award conversion ratio.

Awards which may be granted under the 2011 Share Plan include incentive share options, non-qualified share options (which may be granted separately or in connection with an option), share awards, dividends and dividend equivalents and other equity based awards. Persons eligible to receive awards under the 2011 Share Plan are trust managers, directors of our affiliates, executive and other officers, key employees and consultants, as determined by the Compensation Committee of our Board of Trust Managers. The 2011 Share Plan will expire on May 11, 2021.

Options. Approximately 0.1 million and 0.2 million options were exercised during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The options were exercised at prices ranging from $30.06 to $62.32 per option during the three months ended March 31, 2013, and at prices ranging from $30.06 to $48.02 per option during the three months ended March 31, 2012. The total intrinsic value of options exercised was approximately $4.1 million and $3.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. At March 31, 2013, there was approximately $0.2 million of total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested options, which is expected to be amortized over the next year. At March 31, 2013, outstanding options and exercisable options had a weighted average remaining life of approximately 4.0 years and 3.7 years, respectively.

The aggregate intrinsic value of outstanding and exercisable options at March 31, 2013 was $18.2 million and $14.4 million, respectively. The aggregate intrinsic values were calculated as the excess, if any, between our closing share price of $68.68 per share on March 31, 2013 and the strike price of the underlying award.
Valuation Assumptions. Options generally have a vesting period of three to five years. We estimate the fair values of each option award on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. No new options have been granted in 2013.

Share Awards and Vesting. Share awards generally have a vesting period of three to five years. The compensation cost for share awards is based on the market value of the shares on the date of grant and is amortized over the vesting period. To estimate forfeitures, we use actual forfeiture history. At March 31, 2013, the unamortized value of previously issued unvested share awards was approximately $51.2 million, which is expected to be amortized over the next four years. The total fair value of shares vested during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 was approximately $14.1 million and $12.7 million, respectively.

Total compensation cost for option and share awards charged against income was approximately $3.4 million and $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Total capitalized compensation cost for option and share awards was approximately $0.5 million and $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

10. Commitments and Contingencies
Construction Contracts. As of March 31, 2013, we estimate the additional costs to complete seven consolidated construction projects currently under development to be approximately $325.3 million. We expect to fund these amounts through a combination of cash flows generated from operations, available cash balances, draws on our unsecured credit facility, proceeds from property dispositions, equity issued from our ATM program, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement and secured mortgages.

Litigation. One of our wholly-owned subsidiaries previously acted as a general contractor for the construction of two apartment projects in Florida which were subsequently sold and converted to condominium units by unrelated third-parties. One condominium association has asserted claims against our subsidiary alleging, in general, defective construction as a result of alleged negligence and failure to comply with building codes and the other condominium association has asserted claims against our subsidiary alleging a failure to comply with building codes.
The two associations have filed suit against our subsidiary and other unrelated third parties in Florida claiming damages, in unspecified amounts, for the costs of repair arising out of the alleged defective construction as well as the recovery of incidental and consequential damages resulting from such alleged negligence. We have denied liability to the associations. Based upon the amount of discovery completed to date, it is not possible to determine the potential outcome or to estimate a range of loss, if any, which would be associated with any potential adverse decision.
We are also subject to various legal proceedings and claims which arise in the ordinary course of business. Matters which arise out of allegations of bodily injury, property damage, and employment practices are generally covered by insurance. While the resolution of these legal proceedings and claims cannot be predicted with certainty, management believes the final outcome of such matters will not have a material adverse effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
Other 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, 2013, we had earnest money deposits of approximately $3.5 million which we have paid for potential acquisitions of operating properties and land, of which approximately $3.0 million is non-refundable.

Lease Commitments. At March 31, 2013, we had long-term leases covering certain land, office facilities, and equipment. Rental expense totaled approximately $0.7 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Minimum annual rental commitments for the remainder of 2013 are $2.0 million, and for the years ending

19


December 31, 2014 through 2017 are approximately $3.0 million, $1.9 million, $2.1 million, and $2.1 million, respectively, and approximately $16.3 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 communities 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 and/or dispose of a community in our sole discretion is 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.

11. Income Taxes
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 REIT taxable income, computed without regard to the dividends paid deduction and our net capital gains. 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, including any applicable alternative minimum tax. 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, margin, franchise, and excise taxes. Taxable income from non-REIT activities managed through taxable REIT subsidiaries is subject to applicable federal, state, and local income and margin taxes. Our operating partnerships are flow-through entities and are not subject to federal income taxes at the entity level.

We have provided for income, franchise, and margin taxes in the condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012. Income tax expense is primarily related to margin tax, state income tax, and federal taxes on certain of our taxable REIT subsidiaries. We have no significant temporary 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, 2013.

12. Fair Value Disclosures

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, 2012. 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 they 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, could adversely impact us;
short-term leases expose us to the effects of declining market rents;
we face risks associated with land holdings and related activities;
difficulties of selling real estate could limit our flexibility;
we could be negatively impacted by the condition of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac;
compliance or failure to comply with laws, including those requiring access to our properties by disabled persons, could result in substantial cost;
competition could limit our ability to lease apartments or increase or maintain rental income;
development and construction risks could impact our profitability;
our acquisition strategy may not produce the cash flows expected;
competition could adversely affect our ability to acquire properties;
losses from catastrophes may exceed our insurance coverage;
investments through joint ventures and discretionary funds involve risks not present in investments in which we are the sole investor;
tax matters, including failure to qualify as a REIT, could have adverse consequences;
we rely on information technology in our operations, and any breach, interruption or security failure of that technology could have a negative impact to our business and/or financial condition;
we depend on our key personnel;
litigation risks could affect our business;
insufficient cash flows could limit our ability to make required payments for debt obligations or pay distributions to shareholders;
we have significant debt, which could have important adverse consequences;
we may be unable to renew, repay, or refinance our outstanding debt;
variable rate debt is subject to interest rate risk;
we may incur losses on interest rate hedging arrangements;
issuances of additional debt may adversely impact our financial condition;
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/or amount of dividend distributions in future periods may vary and be impacted by economic or 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.

Executive Summary
We are primarily engaged in the ownership, management, development, acquisition, and construction of multifamily apartment communities. As of March 31, 2013, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 201 multifamily properties comprised of 67,850 apartment homes across the United States as detailed in the following Property Portfolio table. In addition, we own other land parcels we may develop into multifamily apartment communities.
Property Operations
Our results for the three months ended March 31, 2013 reflect an increase in rental revenue as compared to the same period in 2012, which we believe was primarily due to a gradually improving economy, favorable demographics, and a manageable supply of new multifamily housing, which have resulted in increases in realized rental rates and average occupancy levels. Same store revenues increased 5.9% for the first three months of 2013, as compared to the same period in 2012. We believe U.S. economic and employment growth is likely to continue during 2013 and the supply of new multifamily homes although increasing, will likely remain at manageable levels. However, we believe significant risks to the economy remain prevalent, and while there have been increases in employment levels in the majority of our markets, the unemployment rate remains at higher than historical levels. If economic conditions were to worsen, our operating results could be adversely affected.
Development Activity
At March 31, 2013, we had a total of nine development projects under construction comprised of 2,845 apartment homes, including two development projects comprised of 576 units in one of our discretionary funds, with initial occupancy scheduled to occur within the next 24 months. Excluding the development projects owned by one of our discretionary funds, as of March 31, 2013, we estimate the additional costs to complete the construction of seven consolidated projects to be approximately $325.3 million.
Acquisitions
Subsequent to quarter end, in April 2013, we acquired Camden Post Oak, comprised of 356 apartment homes, located in Houston, Texas for approximately $108.5 million.
Dispositions
During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we sold one operating property comprised of 770 apartment homes located in Tampa, Florida, and in April 2013, we sold one operating property comprised of 526 apartment homes located in Orlando, Florida.
During the three months ended March 31, 2013, we also sold two land parcels comprised of an aggregate of approximately 3.7 acres, adjacent to current development communities in Atlanta, Georgia and Houston, Texas, for approximately $6.6 million. We recognized a gain of approximately $0.7 million relating to these land sales.

Future Outlook
Subject to market conditions, we intend to continue to look for opportunities to expand our development pipeline and acquire existing communities. We continually evaluate our operating property and land development portfolio and plan to continue our practice of selective dispositions as market conditions warrant and opportunities develop. We also intend to continue to strengthen our capital and liquidity positions 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 liquidity requirements through a combination of cash flows generated from operations, available cash balances, draws on our unsecured credit facility, proceeds from property dispositions, equity issued from our at-the-market ("ATM") program, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement and secured mortgages.
As of March 31, 2013, we had approximately $59.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and no balances outstanding on our $500 million unsecured line of credit. As of the date of this filing, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $114 million remaining available for sale under our ATM program. We believe payments on debt maturing in 2013 are manageable at approximately $202.4 million, which represents approximately 8.1% of our total outstanding debt and includes scheduled principal amortizations of approximately $2.4 million. We believe we are well-positioned with a strong balance sheet and sufficient liquidity to cover near-term debt maturities and new development funding requirements. We will, however, continue to assess and take further actions we believe are prudent to meet our objectives and capital requirements.
