·4 min read

SITE Centers Corp. (NYSE: SITC) today affirmed 2021 OFFO guidance of $0.90 to $1.00 per share and provided an update on first quarter 2021 operations as part of presentations to certain investors at the 2021 Citi Virtual Global Property CEO Conference.

"We had a very good start to the year with tenant collections and leasing momentum continuing to build and $196 million of net common equity raised to reduce leverage and fund external growth prospects," commented David R. Lukes, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite the expected impact from the offering, we are affirming 2021 OFFO guidance due to our strong operational and collections progress to date."

As of March 4, 2021, the Company’s tenants had paid approximately 95% and 94% of aggregate base rents for January and February 2021, respectively, in each case on a pro rata basis, and 81%, 88%, and 95% for the second, third and fourth quarters of 2020, respectively. Additionally, all of the Company’s properties remain open and operational with 98% of tenants, at the Company’s share and based on average base rents, open for business.

The investor presentation will be posted on the Company’s website at ir.sitecenters.com on March 8, 2021 prior to the commencement of management’s presentations.
