DDR president and CEO David Oakes commented, "I am pleased to report continued progress toward our full-year disposition guidance of $600 to $800 million, as the vast majority of the assets under contract for sale are expected to close in the third quarter."

He added, "We also continue to find certain attractive acquisition opportunities in line with our original guidance, however, we remain very selective and focused on redeploying the majority of the net proceeds into further strengthening our balance sheet and lowering debt to EBITDA."
