Highlight of Business Operations:

All of our investments are held by, and all of our operations are conducted through, Acadia Realty Limited Partnership (the “Operating Partnership”) and entities in which the Operating Partnership owns a controlling interest. As of December 31, 2011, the Trust controlled 99% of the Operating Partnership as the sole general partner. As the general partner, the Trust is entitled to share, in proportion to its percentage interest, in the cash distributions and profits and losses of the Operating Partnership. The limited partners generally represent entities or individuals which contributed their interests in certain assets or entities to the Operating Partnership in exchange for common or preferred units of limited partnership interest (“Common OP Units” or “Preferred OP Units”, respectively, and collectively, “OP Units”) and employees who have been awarded restricted Common OP Units ("LTIP Units") as long-term incentive compensation. Limited partners holding Common OP Units are generally entitled to exchange their units on a one-for-one basis for our common shares of beneficial interest (“Common Shares”). This structure is referred to as an umbrella partnership REIT, or “UPREIT”.

On December 12, 2010, the Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, Inc. (“A&P”) filed for protection under Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. At the time of filing, A&P was a tenant in five of our properties. A&P has affirmed three of its leases. It now operates in two locations in our Core Portfolio, totaling approximately 97,000 square feet. Rental revenues from A&P at these two locations totaled $2.0 million, $2.0 million and $1.9 million for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009, respectively. In addition, A&P operates in one Fund III location, totaling approximately 65,000 square feet. Rental revenues from A&P at this location totaled $1.0 million for each of the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010 and 2009. A&P has filed a plan of reorganization.

Within our Core Portfolio and Opportunity Funds, we had approximately 600 leases as of December 31, 2011. A majority of our rental revenues were from national retailers. A majority of the income from the properties consists of rent received under long-term leases. These leases generally provide for the payment of fixed minimum rent monthly in advance and for the payment by tenants of a pro-rata share of the real estate taxes, insurance, utilities and common area maintenance of the shopping centers. Minimum rents and expense reimbursements accounted for approximately 89% of our total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Leases with tenants are accounted for as operating leases. Minimum rents are recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the respective leases, beginning when the tenant takes possession of the space. Certain of these leases also provide for percentage rents based upon the level of sales achieved by the tenant. Percentage rent is recognized in the period when the tenants sales breakpoint is met. In addition, leases typically provide for the reimbursement to us of real estate taxes, insurance and other property operating expenses. These reimbursements are recognized as revenue in the period the expenses are incurred.
