REIT General and Administrative Expenses:
REIT general and administrative expenses decreased by $1.7 million from 2015 to 2016.
Costs related to Unsolicited Takeover Offer:
The Company incurred $25.2 million in costs in 2015 related to evaluating and responding to an unsolicited takeover offer (See "Other Transactions and Events" in Management's Overview and Summary).
Depreciation and Amortization:
Depreciation and amortization decreased $116.0 million from 2015 to 2016. The decrease in depreciation and amortization is primarily attributed to a decrease of $116.8 million from the Joint Venture Centers and $5.5 million from the Disposition Properties offset in part by an increase of $4.3 million from the Same Centers and $2.0 million from the Redevelopment Properties.
Interest Expense:
Interest expense decreased $48.3 million from 2015 to 2016. The decrease in interest expense is primarily attributed to a decrease of $34.9 million from the Joint Venture Centers, $9.3 million from the Same Centers, $2.3 million from a term loan, $1.9 million from the Disposition Properties and $1.0 million from the Redevelopment Properties offset in part by an increase of $1.1 million from borrowings under the line of credit. The decrease in interest expense at the Same Centers is primarily due to the payoff of the mortgage notes payable on Eastland Mall, Valley Mall and Valley River Center in 2015 offset in part by a new loan on Fresno Fashion Fair in 2016 (See "Financing Activity" in Management's Overview and Summary).
The above interest expense items are net of capitalized interest, which decreased from $13.1 million in 2015 to $10.3 million in 2016.
Equity in Income of Unconsolidated Joint Ventures:
Equity in income of unconsolidated joint ventures increased $11.8 million from 2015 to 2016. The increase is primarily due to the opening of the Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center and VITA Tysons Corner Center in 2015 and the conversion of the PPR Portfolio, Arrowhead Towne Center and the MAC Heitman Portfolio from consolidated Centers to unconsolidated joint ventures (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary).
Gain on Sale or Write down of Assets, net:
Gain on sale or write down of assets, net increased $37.1 million from 2015 to 2016. The increase in gain on sale of assets is primarily due to the increase in gain of $82.4 million on the Joint Venture Transactions and the sale of properties (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary) offset in part by an increase in impairment loss of $29.7 million and a charge of $12.2 million from the settlement of a contingent consideration obligation in 2016.
Gain on Remeasurement of Assets:
The gain on remeasurement of assets of $22.1 million in 2015 is attributed to the purchase of the remaining 50% ownership interest in Inland Center that the Company did not previously own (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary).
Net Income:
Net income increased $31.9 million from 2015 to 2016. The increase in net income is primarily attributed to an increase of $37.1 million from gain on sale or write down of assets as discussed above.
Funds From Operations:
Primarily as a result of the factors mentioned above, FFO—diluted was $642.3 million in 2015 and 2016. For a reconciliation of FFO and FFO—diluted to net income available to common stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, see "Funds From Operations ("FFO")" below.
Operating Activities:
Cash provided by operating activities decreased from $555.0 million in 2015 to $429.5 million in 2016. The decrease is primarily due to the conversion of the PPR Portfolio, Arrowhead Towne Center and the MAC Heitman Portfolio from consolidated Centers to unconsolidated joint ventures (See "Acquisitions and Dispositions" in Management's Overview and Summary), changes in assets and liabilities and the results as discussed above.
