Development Activity During the fourth quarter, we opened two significant new development projects:

-- On October 27th, we opened Clarksburg Premium Outlets, in Clarksburg, Maryland, a 392,000 square foot center with more than 85 retailers featuring high-quality designer and name brands serving the greater Washington D.C. area. Simon owns a 66% interest in this center.

-- On November 3rd, we opened the 500,000 square foot retail component to Brickell City Centre in Miami, Florida. Simon owns a 25% interest in this center and leases and manages the center.

Construction continues on six other new development projects scheduled to open in 2017, including:

-- The Shops at Clearfork (Fort Worth, Texas); scheduled to open in September. Simon owns a 45% interest in this project.

-- Provence Designer Outlet (Miramas, France); scheduled to open in April. Simon owns a 90% interest in this project.

-- Siheung Premium Outlets (Siheung (Seoul), South Korea); scheduled to open in May. Simon owns a 50% interest in this project.

-- Genting Highlands Premium Outlets (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia); scheduled to open in May. Simon owns a 50% interest in this project.

-- Norfolk Premium Outlets (Norfolk, Virginia); scheduled to open in June. Simon owns a 65% interest in this project.

Construction also continues on significant redevelopment and expansion projects including The Westchester, The Galleria in Houston, La Plaza Mall, The Shops at Riverside, Woodbury Common Premium Outlets, Allen Premium Outlets and Toronto Premium Outlets.

At quarter-end, redevelopment and expansion projects, including the addition of new anchors, were underway at 29 properties in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Simon’s share of the costs of all new development and redevelopment projects under construction at quarter-end was approximately $1.6 billion.

Financing Activity The Company was active in both the unsecured and secured credit markets in 2016 continuing to lower our effective borrowing costs and extend our maturity profile.

The Company completed three senior notes offerings, two in U.S. dollars and the other in Euros, totaling $3.8 billion (U.S. dollar equivalent), with a weighted average coupon rate of 2.86% and weighted average term of 11.4 years.

During the year, we retired five series of senior notes comprising approximately $1.9 billion at a weighted average coupon rate of 6.50%. The three new notes offerings had a weighted average coupon rate approximately 360 basis points lower than the notes that were retired during the year.

The Company also increased the availability under its supplemental revolving credit facility by $750 million during the year, resulting in $7.5 billion of total revolving credit capacity.

With regard to secured debt activity, we completed 27 mortgage loans totaling approximately $4.3 billion, (U.S. dollar equivalent), of which Simon’s share is $3.0 billion. The weighted average interest rate and weighted average term on these loans is 3.67% and 9.4 years, respectively.

As of December 31, 2016, Simon had over $7.0 billion of liquidity consisting of cash on hand, including its share of joint venture cash, and available capacity under its revolving credit facilities.

Common Stock Repurchase Program During the quarter ended December 31, 2016, the Company repurchased 1,409,197 shares of its common stock at an average price of $181.12 per share. Since the program’s inception in April 2015, the Company has repurchased a total of 3,312,537 shares of its common stock at an average price of $180.59 per share.

2017 Guidance The Company currently estimates net income to be within a range of $6.45 to $6.55 per diluted share for the year ending December 31, 2017 and that FFO will be within a range of $11.45 to $11.55 per diluted share.

Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in any forward--looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, the Company can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained, and it is possible that the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those indicated by these forward--looking statements due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors.

The Company discusses these and other risks and uncertainties under the heading "Risk Factors" in its annual and quarterly periodic reports filed with the SEC.

Footnotes to Unaudited Financial Information
Notes:
(A) Excess investment represents the unamortized difference of our investment over equity in the underlying net assets of the related partnerships and joint ventures shown therein.  The Company generally amortizes excess investment over the life of the related properties.
(B) 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 investments in Kl?pierre and HBS Global Properties.  Amounts included in Footnotes D below exclude our share of related activity for our investments in Kl?pierre and HBS Global Properties.  For further information on Kl?pierre, reference should be made to financial information in Kl?pierre’s public filings and additional discussion and analysis in our Form 10-K.
(C) This report contains measures of financial or operating performance that are not specifically defined by GAAP, including FFO, FFO per share, comparable FFO per share and comparable EPS.  FFO is a performance measure that is standard in the REIT business.  We believe FFO provides investors with additional information 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.
(D) Includes our share of:
-   Gains on land sales of $8.8 million and $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and $14.0 million and $6.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

-   Amortization of fair market value of leases from acquisitions increased income by $2.3 million and $7.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and $9.6 million and $17.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
