AMB Property Corporation(R) , a leading owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, today reported results for the first quarter 2009. Funds from operations per fully diluted share and unit ("FFOPS") was a $1.00 loss for the first quarter of 2009, as compared to $0.65 for the same quarter in 2008.

Consistent with its previous announcement, the company recognized non-cash impairment charges in the first quarter of 2009, related to valuation of its development and operating assets and land holdings, totaling approximately $182 million. The impairment charges are primarily attributed to changes in leasing and valuation assumptions. Excluding the impact of the impairments, FFOPS would have been $0.77 for the first quarter of 2009.

Net income available to common stockholders per fully diluted share ("EPS") for the first quarter of 2009 was a loss of $1.24, as compared to $0.39 for the same quarter in 2008. The loss was attributable to impairment charges that the company incurred in the quarter.

Financing Activities

As previously announced, AMB completed the issuance and sale of 47.4 million shares of its common stock in a public offering at a price of $12.15 per share, generating $553 million in net proceeds to further strengthen the company's balance sheet. The proceeds from the offering were used to reduce borrowings under the company's unsecured credit facilities.

In addition to the reduction of its credit facilities, AMB has repaid, refinanced or extended approximately $751 million of its debt during the first quarter of 2009, demonstrating the company's continued ability to access the credit markets. AMB's share of total debt was reduced by approximately $787 million during the quarter, and at March 31, 2009, AMB's share of total debt to share of total assets was 43.6 percent, as compared to 51.1 percent at the end of the fourth quarter 2008.

Contributions and Dispositions

Year-to-date the company has completed contributions and sales of approximately $391 million.

During the first quarter, the company completed contributions and sales totaling approximately $304 million, with gains of approximately $52 million, consisting of the following:

  --  The contribution of one asset to AMB Japan Fund I and the sale of five
      development properties and a land parcel in the U.S. for an aggregate
      price of approximately $243 million, with a gain of more than $33
      million and an average development margin of 20.6 percent; and

  --  The sale of eight properties from its operating portfolio in the U.S.
      for an aggregate sales price of approximately $62 million, with a gain
      of approximately $19 million.


Subsequent to quarter end, the company completed sales in its development and operating portfolio totaling approximately $87 million, including two development properties for an aggregate sales price of approximately $50 million, and two properties from its operating portfolio for an aggregate sales price of approximately $37 million. The year-to-date stabilized capitalization rate for its asset sales in the U.S. was approximately 8.5 percent.

The company has other assets in its operating and development portfolios that are currently under contract for sale or scheduled for contribution in 2009, subject to certain conditions, for an aggregate sales price of approximately $219 million. The company also has approximately $51 million of operating and development properties for sale that are currently under non-binding letters of intent.

"We have made significant progress executing on our deleveraging objectives thus far in 2009. The company is even better positioned to weather this downturn with the completion of our follow-on offering, debt repayments, refinancings and dispositions. We have more than enough capacity to meet our needs into 2013 and have the ability to grow our business when compelling opportunities present themselves," said Hamid R. Moghadam, AMB's chairman & CEO.

Investment Activity

The company commenced two previously committed build-to-suit developments in Paris, France and Monterrey, Mexico, totaling 464,000 square feet (43,100 square meters) during the quarter, with a total estimated investment of $29 million.

AMB's global development pipeline at quarter end, which included investments held through unconsolidated joint ventures, totaled approximately 11.8 million square feet (1.1 million square meters) scheduled for delivery through 2010, with an estimated total investment of $983.6 million before the recognition of the impairment charges. The company's share of the remaining cash to fund the completion of its development pipeline is projected to be $135 million. The development pipeline was approximately 31 percent leased as of March 31, 2009, with approximately 7 million square feet (650,800 square meters) of leasing remaining in order to stabilize the pipeline.

Leasing Activity

During the first quarter of 2009, the company leased more than 1.0 million square feet (94,500 square meters) of its development pipeline. In its global operating portfolio, AMB leased approximately 5.6 million square feet (519,000 square meters) in the first quarter.

"Leasing activity has held up well, particularly in light of current economic conditions. First quarter leasing activity in our development pipeline surpasses the development leasing results achieved in the first quarters of 2007 and 2008. While we're pleased with our level of development leasing in the quarter, we do not expect to sustain our normal run rate for the next couple of quarters due to slow demand for new space. Leasing in our operating portfolio is in-line with our forecast," said Tom Olinger, AMB's chief financial officer.

Owned and Managed Portfolio Operating Results

AMB's operating portfolio was 92.2 percent occupied at March 31, 2009, with an average occupancy rate of 93.1 percent for the first quarter of 2009. Cash basis same store net operating income ("SS NOI"), without the effects of lease termination fees, decreased 1.1 percent in the first quarter compared with the same period in 2008, driven primarily by lower average same store occupancies. Average rent change on renewals and rollovers in AMB's operating portfolio was flat for the quarter and 2.2 percent for the trailing four quarters ended March 31, 2009.

2009 FFO Guidance

The company maintains its previous full-year 2009 FFO guidance, without recognition of gains from development activities or non-cash impairment charges, of $1.41 to $1.49 per share. The full-year EPS guidance is a loss of $0.58 to $0.66 per share. Expected results have been adjusted for the estimated impact of the equity offering.

The Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held on Thursday, May 7, 2009 at 2:00 PM PDT / 5:00 PM EDT. Stockholders are invited to attend the meeting at the company's global headquarters located at Pier 1, Bay 1, San Francisco, Calif. The proxy statement, Annual Report to Stockholders, voting materials and meeting information were mailed on or about March 25, 2009. Stockholders who are unable to attend the annual meeting may listen to a live webcast through a link on the company website at www.amb.com in the Investor Relations section.

Supplemental Earnings Measure

Included in the footnotes to the company's attached financial statements is a discussion of why management believes FFO, FFOPS and FFO, excluding impairment charges (the "FFO Measures") are useful supplemental measures of operating performance, ways in which investors might use the FFO Measures when assessing the company's financial performance and the FFO Measures' limitations as a measurement tool. Reconciliation from net income to the FFO Measures are provided in the attached tables and published in the company's quarterly supplemental analyst package, available on the company's website at www.amb.com.

The company believes that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. However, the company considers cash-basis same store net operating income ("SS NOI") to be a useful supplemental measure of its operating performance. Properties that are considered part of the same store pool include all properties that were owned as of the end of both the current and prior year reporting periods and exclude development properties for both the current and prior reporting periods. The same store pool is set annually and excludes properties purchased and developments stabilized after December 31, 2007. In deriving SS NOI, the company defines NOI as rental revenues, including reimbursements, less property operating expenses, both of which are calculated in accordance with GAAP. Property operating expenses exclude depreciation, amortization, general and administrative expenses and interest expense. The company defines SS NOI to also exclude straight-line rents and amortization of lease intangibles. The company considers SS NOI to be an appropriate and useful supplemental performance measure because it reflects the operating performance of the real estate portfolio excluding effects of non-cash adjustments and provides a better measure of actual cash basis rental growth for a year-over-year comparison. In addition, the company believes that SS NOI helps the investing public compare the company's operating performance with that of other companies. While SS NOI is a relevant and widely used measure of operating performance of real estate investment trusts, it does not represent cash flow from operations or net income as defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to those measures in evaluating the company's liquidity or operating performance. SS NOI also does not reflect general and administrative expenses, interest expense, depreciation and amortization costs, capital expenditures and leasing costs, or trends in development and construction activities that could materially impact its results from operations. Further, the company's computation of SS NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies, as they may use different methodologies for calculating SS NOI. Reconciliation from net income to SS NOI is provided in the attached tables and published in the company's quarterly supplemental analyst package, available on the company's website at www.amb.com.

  (1) Funds From Operations ("FFO"), Funds From Operations Per Share and
  Unit ("FFOPS") and FFO, excluding impairment charges (together with FFO
  and FFOPS, the "FFO Measures"). AMB believes that net income, as defined
  by U.S. GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. However, AMB
  considers funds from operations, or FFO, FFO per share and unit, or FFOPS,
   and FFO, excluding impairment charges, to be useful supplemental
   measures of its operating performance. AMB defines FFOPS as FFO per
  fully diluted weighted average share of AMB's common stock and
  operating partnership units. AMB calculates FFO as net income
  available to common stockholders, calculated in accordance with
  U.S. GAAP, less gains (or losses) from dispositions of real
  estate held for investment purposes and real estate-related
  depreciation, and adjustments to derive AMB's pro rata share of
  FFO of consolidated and unconsolidated joint ventures.

  AMB includes the gains from development, including those from
  value-added conversion projects, before depreciation recapture,
  as a component of FFO.  AMB believes that value-added conversion dispositions are in substance land sales and as such should be
  included in FFO, consistent with the real estate investment trust industry's long standing practice to include gains on the sale of
  land in FFO. However, AMB's interpretation of FFO or FFOPS may not
  be consistent with the views of others in the real estate investment
  trust industry, who may consider it to be a divergence from the
  NAREIT definition, and may not be comparable to FFO or FFOPS reported
  by other real estate investment trusts that interpret the current
  NAREIT definition differently than AMB does.  In connection with
  the formation of a joint venture, AMB may warehouse assets that
  are acquired with the intent to contribute these assets to the
  newly formed venture. Some of the properties held for contribution
  may, under certain circumstances, be required to be depreciated
  under U.S. GAAP.  If this circumstance arises, AMB intends to
  include in its calculation of FFO gains or losses related to the
  contribution of previously depreciated real estate to joint
  ventures. Although such a change, if instituted, will be a
  departure from the current NAREIT definition, AMB believes such
  calculation of FFO will better reflect the value created as a
  result of the contributions. To date, AMB has not included gains
  or losses from the contribution of previously depreciated warehoused
  assets in FFO.

  In addition to presenting FFO as described above, AMB presents FFO,
  excluding impairment charges.  AMB calculates FFO, excluding impairment
  charges, as FFO less impairment charges and adjustments to derive AMB's
  share of impairment charges from consolidated and unconsolidated joint
  ventures. To the extent that the book value of a land parcel or
  development asset exceeded the fair market value of a property, based on
  its intended holding period, a non-cash impairment charge was recognized
  for the shortfall. The impairment charges were principally a result of
  increases in estimated capitalization rates and deterioration in market
  conditions that adversely impacted values. Although difficult to
  predict, these charges may be recurring given the uncertainty of the
  current economic climate and its adverse effects on the real estate
  markets. While not infrequent or unusual in nature, these charges are
  subject to market fluctuations that can have inconsistent effects on
  AMB's results of operations.  The economics underlying these charges
  reflect market conditions in the short-term but can obscure the value
  of AMB's long-term investment decisions and strategies. Management
  believes FFO, excluding impairment charges, is significant and useful
  to both it and its investors because it more appropriately reflects the
  value and strength of AMB's business model and its potential performance
  isolated from the volatility of the current economic environment.
  However, in addition to the limitations of FFO Measures generally
  discussed below, FFO, excluding impairment charges, does not present a
  comprehensive measure of AMB's financial condition and operating
  performance. This measure is a modification of the NAREIT definition of
  FFO and should not be considered a replacement of FFO as AMB defines
  it or used as an alternative to net income or cash as defined by U.S.
  GAAP.

  AMB believes that the FFO Measures are meaningful supplemental measures
  of its operating performance because historical cost accounting for
  real estate assets in accordance with U.S. GAAP implicitly assumes that
  the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time, as
  reflected through depreciation and amortization expenses. However, since
  real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market and
  other conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered
  presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use
  historical cost accounting to be insufficient. Thus, the FFO Measures
  are supplemental measures of operating performance for real estate
  investment trusts that exclude historical cost depreciation and
  amortization, among other items, from net income available to common
  stockholders, as defined by U.S. GAAP. AMB believes that the use of the
  FFO Measures, combined with the required U.S. GAAP presentations, has
  been beneficial in improving the understanding of operating results of
  real estate investment trusts among the investing public and making comparisons of operating results among such companies more meaningful.
  AMB considers the FFO Measures to be useful measures for reviewing
  comparative operating and financial performance because, by excluding
  gains or losses related to sales of previously depreciated operating
  real estate assets and real estate depreciation and amortization, the
  FFO Measures can help the investing public compare the operating
  performance of a company's real estate between periods or as compared
  to other companies. While FFO and FFOPS are relevant and widely used
  measures of operating performance of real estate investment trusts,
  the FFO Measures do not represent cash flow from operations or net
  income as defined by U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as
  alternatives to those measures in evaluating AMB's liquidity or
  operating performance. The FFO Measures also do not consider the costs
  associated with capital expenditures related to AMB's real estate assets
  nor are the FFO Measures necessarily indicative of cash available to
  fund AMB's future cash requirements.  Management compensates for the
  limitations of the FFO Measures by providing investors with financial
  statements prepared according to U.S. GAAP, along with this detailed
  discussion of the FFO Measures and a reconciliation of the FFO Measures
  to net income available to common stockholders, a U.S. GAAP measurement.

  See Consolidated Statements of Funds from Operations for a
  reconciliation of FFO from net income available to common stockholders.

  The following table reconciles projected FFO from projected net income available to common stockholders for the year ended December 31, 2009:

  Amounts are expressed per share, except FFO and FFO, excluding AMB's
  share of non-cash impairment charges and development gains, which is
  expressed per share and unit.

  (2) As Development gains are difficult to predict in the current
  economic environment, management believes Projected FFO, excluding
  AMB's share of non-cash impairment charges and development gains is
  the more appropriate and useful measure to reflect its assessment of
  AMB's projected operating performance.

  (3) FFO, excluding impairment charges per common share and unit
  (diluted) is calculated using the diluted two-class method. 920,281
  and 895,446 shares of unvested restricted stock outstanding are
  included in the weighted average common shares and units (diluted)
  amount at March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
