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, 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 September 30, 2015, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 181 multifamily properties comprised of 62,909 apartment homes across the United States. Of the 181 properties, 10 properties were under construction, and when completed will consist of a total of 3,502 apartment homes. 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) 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, or non-managing members, as the case may be, to assess whether any rights held by the limited partners, or non-managing members, as the case may be, indicate we do not have a controlling financial interest. We did not have any interests in VIEs at September 30, 2015 or December 31, 2014.

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 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K. Certain insignificant amounts in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on our condensed consolidated cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities. 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 and nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results which may be expected for the full year.

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. 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 difference between the carrying value of the previously held equity investment and the fair value is recognized in earnings at the time of obtaining control. Transaction costs associated with the acquisition of operating real estate assets are expensed. 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 below market leases is included in other liabilities in our condensed consolidated balance sheets, and the net carrying value of in-place leases is included in other assets, net in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.

The weighted average amortization period of below market leases and in-place leases was approximately eight months and seven months for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. There were no below market leases or in-place leases during the three months ended September 30, 2015 or 2014.
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 discounted and 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 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.

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 prepare the underlying real estate for its intended use have been initiated. All construction

10


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 $4.3 million and $5.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and was approximately $14.6 million and $16.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Capitalized real estate taxes were approximately $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and were approximately $2.9 million and $3.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

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

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 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 Measurements. The valuation methodology we use to measure our deferred compensation plan investments is based on quoted market prices utilizing public information for the same transactions. Our deferred compensation plan investments are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis and included in other assets in our condensed consolidated balance sheets.
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 September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, 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. 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.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements. In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update 2014-09 ("ASU 2014-09"), "Revenue from Contracts with Customers." ASU 2014-09 provides a single comprehensive revenue recognition model for contracts with customers (excluding certain contracts, such as lease contracts) to improve comparability within industries. ASU 2014-09 requires an entity to recognize revenue to reflect the transfer of goods or services to customers at an amount the entity expects to be paid in exchange for those goods and services and provide enhanced disclosures, all to provide more comprehensive guidance for transactions such as service revenue and contract modifications. In August 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year, and it is now effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted but not before the original effective date. ASU 2014-09 may be applied using either a full retrospective or a modified approach upon adoption. We expect to adopt this standard as of January 1, 2018, and we are currently evaluating the impact this standard may have on our consolidated financial statements.

In February 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2015-02 ("ASU 2015-02"), "Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis." ASU 2015-02 changes the analysis a reporting entity must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities. ASU 2015-02 modifies whether limited partnerships and similar entities are VIEs or voting interest entities and eliminates the presumption a general partner should consolidate a limited partnership. Reporting entities which consolidate or hold a variable interest in a VIE as a result of this standard are subject to additional disclosure requirements. ASU 2015-02 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted. We will adopt ASU 2015-02 as of January 1, 2016 and do not expect it to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

In April 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2015-03 ("ASU 2015-03"), "Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs." ASU 2015-03 requires all costs incurred to issue debt to be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying value of the debt rather than being recorded as a deferred charge and presented as an asset. ASU 2015-03 also requires amortization of debt issuance costs to be reported as interest expense in the statement of income. Currently, we report amortization expense of debt issuance costs as a separate line item in our consolidated statements of income. In August 2015, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2015-15 ("ASU 2015-15"), "Presentation and Subsequent Measurement of Debt Issuance Costs Associated with Line-of-Credit Arrangements." ASU 2015-15 supplements the requirements of ASU 2015-03 by allowing an entity to defer and present debt issuance costs related to a line of credit arrangement as an asset and subsequently amortize the deferred costs ratably over the term of the line of credit arrangement. Accordingly, upon our adoption of ASU 2015-03, we will present debt issuance costs related to our unsecured credit facility and unsecured short-term borrowing facility within other assets, net on our consolidated balance sheets. ASU 2015-03 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted, and retrospective application required. We will adopt ASU 2015-03 as of January 1, 2016. The presentation requirements under this ASU will require reclassifications for presentation purposes of certain line items within our consolidated financial statements, and we do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

3. 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 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 1.8 million and 1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and was approximately 2.6 million and 2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, 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 November 2014, 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 $331.3 million (the "2014 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 any future sales under the 2014 ATM program for general corporate purposes, which may include reducing future borrowings under our unsecured credit facility or other short-term borrowings, the repayment of other indebtedness, the redemption or other repurchase of outstanding debt or equity securities, funding for development, redevelopment and investment projects and financing for acquisitions.
 
There were no shares sold during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 under the 2014 ATM program. As of the date of this filing, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $315.3 million remaining available for sale under the 2014 ATM program. No shares were sold subsequent to September 30, 2015 through the date of this filing under the 2014 ATM program.

In January 2008, our Board of Trust Managers approved an increase of the April 2007 repurchase plan to allow for the repurchase of up to $500 million of our common equity securities through open market purchases, block purchases, and privately negotiated transactions. Under this program, we repurchased 4.3 million shares for a total of approximately $230.2 million from April 2007 through the year ended December 31, 2008 and there have not been any shares repurchased subsequent to that date. As of the date of this filing, the remaining dollar value of our common equity securities authorized to be repurchased under the program was approximately $269.8 million.

We currently have an automatic shelf registration statement which allows us to offer, from time to time, common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, or warrants. 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 September

13


30, 2015, we had approximately 86.9 million common shares outstanding, net of treasury shares and shares held in our deferred compensation arrangements, and no preferred shares outstanding.
5. Acquisitions, Dispositions, Assets Held for Sale and Impairment
Acquisitions of Land. In May 2015, we acquired approximately 49.6 acres of land located in Phoenix, Arizona for approximately $36.3 million and in June 2015, we acquired approximately 2.7 acres of land located in Los Angeles, California for approximately $9.5 million. In October 2015, we acquired approximately 5.8 acres of land in Gaithersburg, Maryland for approximately $13.3 million.

In January 2014, we acquired approximately 2.9 acres of land located in Houston, Texas for approximately $15.6 million and in April 2014, we acquired approximately 7.6 acres of land in Rockville, Maryland for approximately $23.8 million.

Acquisition of Non-controlling Ownership Interest. In March 2015, we purchased the remaining 0.01% non-controlling interest in two fully consolidated joint ventures, which own an aggregate of 798 apartment homes located in College Park, Maryland and Irvine, California, for approximately $9.5 million. The acquisitions of the remaining ownership interests were recorded as equity transactions and, as a result, the carrying balances of the non-controlling interest were eliminated and the remaining difference between the purchase price and carrying balance was recorded as a reduction in additional paid-in capital. See Note 13, "Non-controlling Interests," for the effect of changes in ownership interests of these former joint ventures on the equity attributable to common shareholders.

Land Holding Dispositions and Impairment. In March 2015, we sold a land holding adjacent to an operating property in Dallas, Texas for approximately $0.4 million and recognized a gain of approximately $0.1 million.

In July 2014, we sold approximately 2.4 acres of land adjacent to an operating property in Dallas, Texas for approximately $0.8 million. We recognized a $1.2 million impairment charge related to this land parcel in June 2014, which represented the difference between the land holding's carrying value and the fair value based upon the sales contract on this land parcel. In August 2014, we sold approximately 19.2 acres of land adjacent to an operating property in Houston, Texas for approximately $8.3 million and recognized a gain of approximately $1.8 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we also sold approximately 7.7 acres of land adjacent to current development and operating communities located in Atlanta, Georgia and Dallas, Texas for approximately $14.6 million and recognized a gain of approximately $1.8 million related to these land sales.

Sales of Operating Properties. In January 2015, we sold two operating properties, which were included in properties held for sale at December 31, 2014, comprised of 1,116 apartment homes located in Tampa, Florida and Austin, Texas for approximately $114.4 million and we recognized a gain of approximately $85.1 million relating to these property sales.

Operating Property Held for Sale. In October 2015, we sold one operating property, which was included in properties held for sale at September 30, 2015, comprised of 260 apartment homes located in Brandon, Florida for approximately $33.0 million.

6. Investments in Joint Ventures
As of September 30, 2015, our equity investments in unconsolidated joint ventures, which we account for utilizing the equity method of accounting, consisted of three discretionary investment funds (collectively, "the funds"). Our ownership interest in each of the first two funds was 31.3% at September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, and was 20% at September 30, 2014. 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. Our ownership interest in this fund was 20% as of September 30, 2015; this fund did not own any properties at such date.

Equity in income excludes our ownership interest of fee income from various services provided by us to the funds.

The funds which own properties have been funded in part with secured third-party debt. As of September 30, 2015, we had no outstanding guarantees related to loans of the funds.

We may earn fees for property and asset management, construction, development, and other services related to joint ventures in which we own an equity interest and may earn a promoted equity interest if certain thresholds are met. We eliminate fee income for services provided to these joint ventures to the extent of our ownership. Fees earned for these services, net of eliminations, were approximately $1.4 million and $2.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and were approximately $4.4 million and $6.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

In February 2014, two of the funds each sold an operating property, comprised of 558 apartment homes, for approximately $65.6 million. Our proportionate share of the gains on these transactions was approximately $3.6 million and was reported as a component of equity in income of joint ventures in the condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.

In August 2015, we amended our $500 million unsecured credit facility to extend the maturity date from September 2015 to August 2019, with two six-month options to extend at our election to August 2020, and increased the facility from $500 million to $600 million, with the option to further increase it to $900 million by either adding additional banks to the facility or obtaining the agreement of the existing banks to increase their commitments. The interest rate on this 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 this 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 $300 million or the remaining amount available under the credit facility. This 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 September 30, 2015, we had approximately $200.0 million outstanding on our credit facility and we had outstanding letters of credit totaling approximately $10.1 million, leaving approximately $389.9 million available under our credit facility.

In May 2015, we entered into a $40 million unsecured short-term borrowing facility which matures in May 2016. The interest rate is based upon LIBOR plus 1.05%. At September 30, 2015, we had approximately $23.0 million outstanding on this unsecured short-term borrowing facility.

In June 2015, we used cash and borrowings from our existing unsecured credit facility to repay the principal amount of our 5.08% senior unsecured notes payable, which was scheduled to mature on June 15, 2015, for a total of $250.0 million, plus accrued interest.

At September 30, 2015 and 2014, we had outstanding floating rate debt of approximately $431.5 million and $210.1 million, respectively, which included our unsecured credit facility and short-term borrowings, and the weighted average interest rate on such debt was approximately 1.0% for each of the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

Our indebtedness, which includes our unsecured credit facility and unsecured short-term borrowings, had a weighted average maturity of approximately 6.0 years at September 30, 2015. 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 September 30, 2015:

8. Share-based Compensation and Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan
Incentive Compensation. During the second quarter of 2011, our Board of Trust Managers adopted, and our shareholders approved, the 2011 Share Incentive Plan of Camden Property Trust (as amended, 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 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 September 30, 2015, approximately 4.6 million fungible units were available under the 2011 Share Plan, which results in approximately 1.3 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. New options are exercisable, subject to the terms and conditions of the plan, in increments ranging from 20% to 33.33% per year on each of the anniversaries of the date of grant. The plan provides that the exercise price of an option will be determined by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Trust Managers on the day of grant, and to date all options have been granted at an exercise price that equals the fair market value on the date of grant. Approximately 0.1 million and 0.4 million options were exercised during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The total intrinsic value of options exercised was approximately $2.0 million and $6.9 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. At September 30, 2015, there was no unrecognized compensation cost related to

unvested options. At September 30, 2015, all options outstanding were exercisable and had a weighted average remaining life of approximately 3.4 years.

The following table summarizes outstanding share options, all of which were exercisable, at September 30, 2015:

The aggregate intrinsic value of options outstanding and exercisable at September 30, 2015 was $9.3 million. The aggregate intrinsic value was calculated as the excess, if any, between our closing share price of $73.90 per share on September 30, 2015 and the strike price of the underlying award.

Options Granted and Valuation Assumptions. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, we granted approximately 26.8 thousand reload options. Reload options are granted for the number of shares tendered as payment for the exercise price upon the exercise of an option with a reload provision. The reload options granted have an exercise price equal to the fair market value of a common share on the date of grant and expire on the same date as the original options which were exercised. The reload options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 vested immediately and approximately $0.2 million was expensed on the reload date. We estimate the fair values of each option award including reloads on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following assumptions were used for the reload options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2015:
 
Nine Months Ended
September 30, 2015
Weighted average fair value of options granted
$5.52 - $7.38
Expected volatility
16.5% - 18.8%
Risk-free interest rate
1.0% - 1.3%
Expected dividend yield
3.5% - 3.7%
Expected life
3 years - 4 years

Our computation of expected volatility for 2015 is based on the historical volatility of our common shares over a time period equal to the expected life of the option and ending on the grant date, and the interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the award is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The expected dividend yield on our common shares is based on the historical dividend yield over the expected term of the options granted. Our computation of expected life is based upon historical experience of similar awards, giving consideration to the contractual terms of the share-based awards.

Share Awards and Vesting. Share awards for employees generally have a vesting period of three to five years. The compensation cost for share awards is generally based on the market value of the shares on the date of grant and is amortized over the vesting period. In the event the holder of the share awards will reach both the retirement eligibility age of 65 years and the service requirements as defined in the 2011 Share Plan 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. To estimate forfeitures, we use actual forfeiture history. At September 30, 2015, the unamortized value of previously issued unvested share awards was approximately $37.1 million, which is expected to be amortized over the next three years. The total fair value of shares vested during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was approximately $18.1 million and $16.0 million, respectively.

Total compensation cost for option and share awards charged against income was approximately $4.8 million and $4.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and approximately $13.7 million and $12.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Total capitalized compensation cost for option and share awards was approximately $0.9 million and $0.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and approximately $2.6 million and $2.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan. In February 2014, we adopted the Second Amended and Restated Camden Property Trust Non-Qualified Deferred Compensation Plan to clarify certain terms in the existing plan relating to the deferral of performance based compensation. As a result of such action, the fully vested awards and the proportionate share of nonvested awards eligible for diversification were reclassified from additional paid in capital to temporary equity in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. The share awards are adjusted to their redemption value at each reporting period, with the redemption value based on the market value of the shares at the end of the reporting period. Changes in value from period to period are charged to distributions in excess of net income attributable to common shareholders in our condensed consolidated statements of equity.

10. Commitments and Contingencies
Construction Contracts. As of September 30, 2015, we estimate the additional cost to complete the nine consolidated projects currently under construction to be approximately $357.2 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, proceeds from property dispositions, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement, equity issued from our ATM program, other unsecured borrowings, and 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 September 30, 2015, we had earnest money deposits of approximately $0.9 million for potential acquisitions of land which are included in other assets, net in our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Approximately $0.7 million of these deposits was non-refundable at September 30, 2015.

Lease Commitments. At September 30, 2015, we had long-term leases covering certain land, office facilities, and equipment. Rental expense totaled approximately $0.8 million for each of the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, and approximately $2.4 million and $2.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Minimum annual rental commitments for the remainder of 2015 are $0.7 million, and for the years ending December 31, 2016 through 2019 are approximately $2.8 million, $2.9 million, $2.7 million, and $2.5 million, respectively, and approximately $13.6 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 and/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.

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, 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 operating partnerships are flow-through entities and are not subject to federal income taxes at the entity level.


20


We have recorded income, franchise, and excise taxes in the condensed consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 as income tax expense. Income taxes for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 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 nine months ended September 30, 2015.

12. Fair Value Measurements

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, 2014. 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;
we could be negatively impacted by the elimination of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac;
development, redevelopment and construction risks could impact our profitability;
investments through joint ventures and discretionary 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;
tax matters, including failure to qualify as a REIT, could have adverse consequences;
losses from catastrophes may exceed our insurance coverage;
a cybersecurity incident and other technology disruptions could negatively impact our business;
we have significant debt, which could have important 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;
variable rate debt is subject to interest rate risk;
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 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.

Executive Summary
We are primarily engaged in the ownership, management, development, redevelopment, acquisition, and construction of multifamily apartment communities. As of September 30, 2015, we owned interests in, operated, or were developing 181 multifamily properties comprised of 62,909 apartment homes across the United States as detailed in the following Property Portfolio table. In addition, we own other land holdings which we may develop into multifamily apartment communities in the future.
Property Operations
Our results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 reflect an increase in same store revenues of 5.5% and 5.1%, respectively, as compared to the same periods in 2014. We believe these increases were due to the continuation of improving economic conditions, including job growth, favorable demographics, and a manageable supply of new multifamily housing, and in part due to more individuals choosing to rent versus buy as evidenced by the moderating level of homeownership rates, all of which have resulted in higher rental rates and average occupancy levels. We believe U.S. economic and employment growth is likely to continue during the remainder of 2015 and the supply of new multifamily homes, although increasing, will likely remain at manageable levels. If economic conditions were to worsen, our operating results could be adversely affected.
Construction Activity
At September 30, 2015, we had a total of 10 projects under construction to be comprised of 3,502 apartment homes, with initial occupancy scheduled to occur within the next 26 months. The 10 projects included nine projects which were consolidated and one project, to be comprised of 266 apartment homes, which was owned by one of the discretionary investment funds ("the funds") in which we have a 31.3% interest. As of September 30, 2015, we estimate the additional cost to complete the construction of the nine consolidated projects to be approximately $357.2 million.
Acquisitions
In May 2015, we acquired approximately 49.6 acres of land located in Phoenix, Arizona for approximately $36.3 million and in June 2015, we acquired approximately 2.7 acres of land located in Los Angeles, California for approximately $9.5 million. In October 2015, we acquired approximately 5.8 acres of land in Gaithersburg, Maryland for approximately $13.3 million.
Dispositions
In January 2015, we sold two operating properties, which were included in properties held for sale at December 31, 2014, comprised of 1,116 apartment homes located in Tampa, Florida and Austin, Texas for approximately $114.4 million and recognized a gain of approximately $85.1 million relating to these property sales. In March 2015, we sold a land holding adjacent to an operating property in Dallas, Texas for approximately $0.4 million and recognized a gain of approximately $0.1 million.
In October 2015, we sold one operating property, which was included in properties held for sale at September 30, 2015, comprised of 260 apartment homes, located in Brandon, Florida for approximately $33.0 million.
Future Outlook
Subject to market conditions, we intend to continue to seek opportunities to develop, redevelop 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 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 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 or other short-term borrowings, proceeds from property dispositions, the use of debt and equity offerings under our automatic shelf registration statement, equity issued from our at-the-market ("ATM") share offering program, other unsecured borrowings, and secured mortgages.
As of September 30, 2015, we had approximately $389.9 million available under our $600 million unsecured credit facility and, as of the date of this filing, we had common shares having an aggregate offering price of up to $315.3 million remaining available for sale under our 2014 ATM program. As of September 30, 2015, payments on debt maturing through the remainder of 2015 included scheduled principal amortizations of approximately $0.5 million. We believe we are well-positioned with a strong balance sheet and sufficient liquidity to cover near-term debt maturities and new development, redevelopment, and other capital funding requirements. We will, however, continue to assess and take further actions we believe are prudent to meet our objectives and capital requirements.
