Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. reported its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2014.  Funds from operations ("FFO") available to common shareholders, a widely accepted supplemental measure of REIT performance, increased 4.5% to $42.8 million, or $0.43 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to FFO of $41.0 million, or $0.42 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013.  Adjusted funds from operations ("AFFO") increased 7.1% to $0.45 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to $0.42 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013.  
 
"For the first quarter of 2014, weather-related outlet center closures within our consolidated portfolio were nearly five times greater than in the first quarter of last year.  Snow removal expense for the same period was more than double the prior year. In spite of these extraordinary headwinds, our diversified portfolio generated same center net operating income growth of 3.3%.  
 
AFFO per share for the quarter was in line with our internal expectations, and represented a healthy 7.1% increase.  The primary drivers were related to the properties developed and acquired during 2013, and same center net operating income growth," commented Steven B. Tanger, President & Chief Executive Officer.  
 
As adjusted for the charges above, net income available to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2014 increased 0.8% to $15.8 million, or $0.16 per share, as compared to net income of $15.6 million, or $0.16 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013. 
 
Net income, FFO and AFFO per share are on a diluted basis.  FFO and AFFO are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures used in the real estate industry to measure and compare the operating performance of real estate companies.
