Acadia Realty Trust Announces Executive Retirement and Provides Earnings Update

Share:

Acadia Realty Trust (NYSE:AKR) ("Acadia" or the "Company") today
announced that Joel Braun will retire from his role as Executive Vice
President and Chief Investment Officer of the Company effective December
31, 2018. Mr. Braun has been with the Company since its inception in
1998 and has played a significant role in its profitable growth and
development.

Mr. Braun has already successfully transitioned his responsibilities to
several individuals within the Company. Mr. Braun and the Company also
anticipate entering into a consulting arrangement to assist with
acquisition and development matters, as may be requested by the Company
from time to time.

In connection with Mr. Braun's retirement, the Company anticipates
recognizing an aggregate charge of approximately $2.0 million
(approximately $0.03 per share) to net income and funds from operations
during the fourth quarter 2018, the majority of which relates to the
acceleration of vesting of certain previously-granted equity-based
compensation awards. However, all previously unvested performance-based
awards will remain subject to their vesting requirements. This charge
was not incorporated into the Company's previously-provided earnings
guidance for the year ending December 31, 2018.

"All of us at Acadia would like to thank Joel for his many years of
dedicated service and leadership," commented Kenneth F. Bernstein,
President and CEO of the Company. "Two decades ago, when Joel joined
Acadia, the Company had a market capitalization of approximately $150
million and a portfolio of shopping centers located in predominately
secondary and tertiary markets. Over the years, my trusted collaborator
and friend Joel has been integral to our Company's transformation into a
differentiated, dual-platform company that is well positioned to succeed
in today's rapidly-changing retail real estate environment. In addition
to his many contributions on the investments front, Joel has built a
talented and energized investment team. Looking ahead, I have full
confidence that we will continue to successfully execute on our strategy
and create long-term value for all of Acadia's stakeholders."
