Excess investment represents the unamortized difference of our (B) investment over equity in the underlying net assets of the related partnerships and joint ventures shown therein. We generally amortize excess investment over the life of the related properties. The Unaudited Joint Venture Statements of Operations do not include any operations or our share of net income or excess investment amortization related to our investment in Klepierre. Amounts included in Footnote E (C) below exclude our share of related activity for our investment in Klepierre. For further information, reference should be made to financial information in Klepierre's public filings and additional discussion and analysis in our Form 10-Q. This report contains measures of financial or operating performance that are not specifically defined by GAAP, including FFO and FFO per share. FFO is a performance measure that is standard in the REIT business. We believe FFO provides investors with additional information (D) concerning our operating performance and a basis to compare our performance with those of other REITs. We also use these measures internally to monitor the operating performance of our portfolio. Our computation of these non-GAAP measures may not be the same as similar measures reported by other REITs. We determine FFO based upon the definition set forth by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"). We determine FFO to be our share of consolidated net income computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding real estate related depreciation and amortization, excluding gains and losses from extraordinary items, excluding gains and losses from the sales or disposals of, or any impairment charges related to, previously depreciated retail operating properties, plus the allocable portion of FFO of unconsolidated joint ventures based upon economic ownership interest, and all determined on a consistent basis in accordance with GAAP. We have adopted NAREIT's clarification of the definition of FFO that requires it to include the effects of nonrecurring items not classified as extraordinary, cumulative effect of accounting changes, or a gain or loss resulting from the sale or disposal of, or any impairment charges relating to, previously depreciated retail operating properties. We include in FFO gains and losses realized from the sale of land, outlot buildings, marketable and non-marketable securities, and investment holdings of non-retail real estate. However, you should understand that FFO does not represent cash flow from operations as defined by GAAP, should not be considered as an alternative to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as a measure of operating performance, and is not an alternative to cash flows as a measure of liquidity. (E) Includes our share of: oGains on land sales of $0.4 million and $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012,respectively oStraight-line adjustments to minimum rent of $12.8 million and $8.8 million for the three months endedMarch 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively oAmortization of fair market value of leases from acquisitions of $10.7 million and $5.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively and oDebt premium amortization of $10.9 million and $6.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and2012, respectively.
