AMB Property Corporation® , a leading owner, operator and developer of global industrial real estate, today reported results for the second quarter 2010. Funds from operations, as adjusted, per fully diluted share and unit ("FFOPS, as adjusted") was $0.30 for the second quarter of 2010, as compared to $0.37 for the same quarter in 2009. FFO, as adjusted for the second quarter of 2010, excludes $0.01 of restructuring and debt extinguishment charges.

Net income available to common stockholders per fully diluted share ("EPS") for the second quarter of 2010 was $0.02, as compared to $0.12 for the same quarter in 2009. The year-over-year change was primarily due to higher depreciation expense and lower gains from disposition of operating properties.

"Our second quarter results came in slightly ahead of our expectations and our operating performance has begun to recover. While we are encouraged by the recovery of many leading indicators of our business, including global ocean and air cargo volumes, the economic turbulence in the second quarter appears to have left our customers in certain markets more cautious about leasing decisions," said Hamid R. Moghadam, chairman and CEO. "Consequently, we expect this dynamic will contribute to lower full-year 2010 results than previously expected, but remain confident in the prospects for AMB and industrial real estate in 2011 and beyond."

Owned and Managed Portfolio Operating Results

Occupancy in AMB's operating portfolio was 91.8 percent at June 30, 2010, up 130 basis points from March 31, 2010. Average occupancy during the second quarter was 90.1 percent. Cash-basis same store net operating income ("SS NOI"), without the effect of lease termination fees, decreased 6.0 percent in the second quarter of 2010 compared with the same period in 2009, driven primarily by lower average same store occupancy and increased levels of free rent. Average rent on renewals and rollovers in AMB's operating portfolio decreased 11.2 percent for the trailing four quarters ended June 30, 2010.

Leasing Activity

The company commenced leases totaling approximately 7.9 million square feet (735,400 square meters) in its global operating portfolio during the quarter and 33.9 million square feet (3.2 million square meters) for the trailing four quarters ended June 30, 2010. In addition, AMB leased approximately 1.6 million square feet (149,300 square meters) in its global development portfolio during the quarter.

Investment Activity

During the quarter, acquisitions totaled $42.7 million, including $29.4 million for AMB Europe Fund I and $13.3 million for AMB's wholly-owned portfolio. The company also acquired a land parcel in Brazil, the second acquisition through its joint venture with Cyrela Commercial Properties (CCP). The 48 acres have estimated build-out potential of 728,800 square feet (67,700 square meters).

Subsequent to quarter end, the company's two open-ended funds received capital commitments comprising:

  --  $50.5 million in third-party equity in AMB U.S. Logistics Fund; and
  --  $42.8 million in third-party equity in AMB Europe Fund I.


  Disposition Activities

During the second quarter, the company completed property dispositions and contributions of $35 million, with a 6.0 percent capitalization rate, comprising:

  --  The sale of five properties in the Americas for an aggregate price of
      $12.6 million; and
  --  The transfer of two assets to AMB Europe Fund I in exchange for
      additional units equal to the fair value of the assets, of $22.4
      million.

During the first half of 2010, the company completed property dispositions and contributions of $57.9 million, with a stabilized capitalization rate of 6.9 percent.

Financing Activities

As previously announced on April 2010, the company completed the issuance and sale of approximately 18.2 million shares of its common stock in a public offering at a price of $27.50 per share, generating approximately $479 million in net proceeds. The company used the proceeds for general corporate purposes, including the reduction of borrowings on its lines of credit and the funding of equity investments into AMB U.S. Logistics Fund.

The company completed more than $428 million of debt repayments and extensions during the second quarter and $678 million year to date. AMB's share of total debt was reduced by approximately $264 million during the quarter, and at June 30, 2010, AMB's share of total debt to share of total assets was 40.5 percent, as compared to 44.8 percent at the end of the first quarter of 2010.

The company's liquidity at June 30, 2010 was approximately $1.5 billion, consisting of more than $1.2 billion of availability on its lines of credit and approximately $292 million of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents.

Subsequent to quarter end, the company closed two yen-denominated financing transactions in Japan totaling $189 million (USD equivalent). The financings consisted of a $113 million 10-year unsecured corporate term-loan at a fixed rate of 3.25 percent and a $76 million non-recourse seven-year mortgage loan at a 2.9 percent fixed rate. The proceeds from both financings were used to pay down borrowings on the company's yen line of credit.

2010 FFO Guidance

The company revises its previous full-year 2010 Core FFO, as adjusted guidance to $1.20 to $1.26 per share, excluding the recognition of gains from development activities, early debt extinguishment costs and restructuring charges. The company will provide updated details of its outlook for 2010 guidance during its second quarter earnings conference call.

Supplemental Earnings Measure

Included in the footnotes to the company's attached financial statements is a discussion of why management believes FFO, as adjusted, and FFOPS, as adjusted (the "FFO Measures, as adjusted") are useful supplemental measures of operating performance, ways in which investors might use the FFO Measures, as adjusted, when assessing the company's financial performance and the limitations of the FFO Measures, as adjusted, as a measurement tool. Reconciliation from net income to the FFO Measures, as adjusted, 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.

AMB defines NOI as rental revenues, including reimbursements, less property operating expenses. NOI excludes depreciation, amortization, general and administrative expenses, restructuring charges, real estate impairment losses, development profits (losses), gains (losses) from sale or contribution of real estate interests, and interest expense. AMB believes that net income, as defined by GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. However, NOI is a useful supplemental measure calculated to help investors understand AMB's operating performance, excluding the effects of gains (losses), costs and expenses which are not related to the performance of the assets. NOI is widely used by the real estate industry as a useful supplemental measure, which helps investors compare AMB's operating performance with that of other companies. Real estate impairment losses have been excluded in deriving NOI because AMB does not consider its impairment losses to be a property operating expense. AMB believes that the exclusion of impairment losses from NOI is a common methodology used in the real estate industry. Real estate impairment losses relate to the changing values of AMB's assets but do not reflect the current operating performance of the assets with respect to their revenues or expenses. AMB's real estate impairment losses are non-cash charges which represent the write down in the value of assets when estimated fair value over the holding period is lower than current carrying value. The impairment charges were principally a result of increases in estimated capitalization rates and deterioration in market conditions that adversely impacted underlying real estate values. Therefore, the impairment charges are not related to the current performance of AMB's real estate operations and should be excluded from its calculation of NOI.

AMB considers SS NOI to be a useful supplemental measure of our operating performance for properties that are considered part of the same store pool. AMB defines Cash-basis SS NOI as NOI on a same store basis excluding straight line rents and amortization of lease intangibles. Same store pool includes all properties that are owned as of the end of both the current and prior year reporting periods and excludes 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, 2008. AMB 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, AMB believes that SS NOI helps investors compare the operating performance of AMB's real estate as compared to 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 our liquidity or operating performance. SS NOI also does not reflect general and administrative expenses, interest expenses, real estate impairment losses, depreciation and amortization costs, capital expenditures and leasing costs, or trends in development and construction activities that could materially impact our results from operations. Further, AMB'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, as adjusted ("FFO, as adjusted") and Funds From Operations Per Share and Unit, as adjusted ("FFOPS, as adjusted") (together with FFO, as adjusted and FFOPS, as adjusted, the "FFO Measures, as adjusted"). AMB believes that net income, as defined by U.S. GAAP, is the most appropriate earnings measure. However, AMB considers funds from operations, as adjusted (or FFO, as adjusted) and FFO, as adjusted, per share and unit (or FFOPS, as adjusted) to be useful supplemental measures of its operating performance. AMB defines FFOPS, as adjusted, as FFO, as adjusted, per fully diluted weighted average share of AMB's common stock and operating partnership units. AMB calculates FFO, as adjusted, as net income (or loss) 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, as adjusted, of consolidated and unconsolidated joint ventures. This calculation also includes adjustments for items as described below.

Unless stated otherwise, AMB includes the gains from development, including those from value-added conversion projects, before depreciation recapture, as a component of FFO, as adjusted. AMB believes gains from development should be included in FFO, as adjusted, to more completely reflect the performance of one of our lines of business. AMB believes that value-added conversion dispositions are in substance land sales and as such should be included in FFO, as adjusted, consistent with the real estate investment trust industry's long standing practice to include gains on the sale of land in funds from operations. However, AMB's interpretation of FFO, as adjusted, or FFOPS, as adjusted, 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 funds from operations or funds from operations per share and unit 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, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted.

In addition, AMB calculates FFO, as adjusted, to exclude impairment and restructuring charges, debt extinguishment losses and the Series D preferred unit redemption discount. The impairment charges were principally a result of increases in estimated capitalization rates and deterioration in market conditions that adversely impacted values. The restructuring charges reflected costs associated with AMB's reduction in global headcount and cost structure. Debt extinguishment losses generally included the costs of repurchasing debt securities. AMB repurchased certain tranches of senior unsecured debt to manage its debt maturities in response to the current financing environment, resulting in greater debt extinguishment costs. The Series D preferred unit redemption discount reflects the gain associated with the discount to liquidation preference in the Series D preferred unit redemption price less costs incurred as a result of the redemption. Although difficult to predict, these items may be recurring given the uncertainty of the current economic climate and its adverse effects on the real estate and financial markets. While not infrequent or unusual in nature, these items result from market fluctuations that can have inconsistent effects on AMB's results of operations. The economics underlying these items reflect market and financing conditions in the short-term but can obscure AMB's performance and the value of AMB's long-term investment decisions and strategies. Management believes FFO, as adjusted, is significant and useful to both it and its investors. FFO, as adjusted, 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 and unobscured by costs (or gains) resulting from AMB's management of its financing profile in response to the tightening of the capital markets. However, in addition to the limitations of FFO Measures, as adjusted, generally discussed below, FFO, as adjusted, does not present a comprehensive measure of AMB's financial condition and operating performance. This measure is a modification of the NAREIT definition of funds from operations and should not be used as an alternative to net income or cash as defined by U.S. GAAP.

AMB believes that the FFO Measures, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, can help the investing public compare the operating performance of a company's real estate between periods or as compared to other companies. While funds from operations and funds from operations per share are relevant and widely used measures of operating performance of real estate investment trusts, the FFO Measures, as adjusted, 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, as adjusted, also do not consider the costs associated with capital expenditures related to AMB's real estate assets nor are the FFO Measures, as adjusted, necessarily indicative of cash available to fund AMB's future cash requirements. Management compensates for the limitations of the FFO Measures, as adjusted, by providing investors with financial statements prepared according to U.S. GAAP, along with this detailed discussion of the FFO Measures, as adjusted, and a reconciliation of the FFO Measures, as adjusted, to net income available to common stockholders, a U.S. GAAP measurement.

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

Amounts are expressed per share, except FFO, as adjusted, and Core FFO, as adjusted, which are expressed per share and unit.

(2) Represents amount of FFO allocated to outstanding unvested restricted shares. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, there were 1,222 unvested restricted shares. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, there were 930 unvested restricted shares.

(3) As development gains are difficult to predict in the current economic environment, management believes Core FFO, as adjusted, is the more appropriate and useful measure to reflect its assessment of AMB's projected operating performance.
