At the end of the first quarter, the Companys development pipeline totaled $747.9 million at its pro-rata ownership interest and was 96 percent funded.

Attachment 16(B)

UDR, Inc. Definitions and Reconciliations March 31, 2019 (Unaudited)

Funds from Operations as Adjusted (“FFO as Adjusted”) attributable to common stockholders and unitholders: The Company defines FFO as Adjusted attributable to common stockholders and unitholders as FFO excluding the impact of other non-comparable items including, but not limited to, acquisition-related costs, prepayment costs/benefits associated with early debt retirement, impairment write-downs or gains and losses on sales of real estate or other assets incidental to the main business of the Company and income taxes directly associated with those gains and losses, casualty-related expenses and recoveries, severance costs and legal and other costs.

Management believes that FFO as Adjusted is useful supplemental information regarding our operating performance as it provides a consistent comparison of our operating performance across time periods and allows investors to more easily compare our operating results with other REITs. FFO as Adjusted is not intended to represent cash flow or liquidity for the period, and is only intended to provide an additional measure of our operating performance. The Company believes that net income/(loss) attributable to common stockholders is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure to FFO as Adjusted. However, other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating FFO as Adjusted or similar FFO measures and, accordingly, our FFO as Adjusted may not always be comparable to FFO as Adjusted or similar FFO measures calculated by other REITs. FFO as Adjusted should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP) as an indication of financial performance, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities (determined in accordance with GAAP) as a measure of our liquidity. A reconciliation from net income attributable to common stockholders to FFO as Adjusted is provided on Attachment 2.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) attributable to common stockholders and unitholders: The Company defines FFO attributable to common stockholders and unitholders as net income/(loss) attributable to common stockholders (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding impairment write-downs of depreciable real estate related to the main business of the Company or of investments in non-consolidated investees that are directly attributable to decreases in the fair value of depreciable real estate held by the investee, gains and losses from sales of depreciable real estate related to the main business of the Company and income taxes directly associated with those gains and losses, plus real estate depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for noncontrolling interests, and the Companys share of unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. This definition conforms with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trust’s definition issued in April 2002 and restated in November 2018. In the computation of diluted FFO, if OP Units, DownREIT Units, unvested restricted stock, unvested LTIP Units, stock options, and the shares of Series E Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock are dilutive, they are included in the diluted share count.

Management considers FFO a useful metric for investors as the Company uses FFO in evaluating property acquisitions and its operating performance and believes that FFO should be considered along with, but not as an alternative to, net income and cash flow as a measure of the Company’s activities in accordance with GAAP. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs. A reconciliation from net income/(loss) attributable to common stockholders to FFO is provided on Attachment 2.

Held For Disposition Communities: The Company defines Held for Disposition Communities as those communities that were held for sale as of the end of the most recent quarter.

Joint Venture Reconciliation at UDR’s weighted average ownership interest:

In thousands         1Q 2019
Income/(loss) from unconsolidated entities $ 49

Other (income)/expense   (81 )
Total Joint Venture NOI at UDR’s Ownership Interest $ 23,069  

Net Operating Income (NOI): The Company defines NOI as rental income less direct property rental expenses. Rental income represents gross market rent and other revenues less adjustments for concessions, vacancy loss and bad debt. Rental expenses include real estate taxes, insurance, personnel, utilities, repairs and maintenance, administrative and marketing. Excluded from NOI is property management expense which is calculated as 2.875% of property revenue to cover the regional supervision and accounting costs related to consolidated property operations, and land rent.

Management considers NOI a useful metric for investors as it is a more meaningful representation of a communitys continuing operating performance than net income as it is prior to corporate-level expense allocations, general and administrative costs, capital structure and depreciation and amortization and is a widely used input, along with capitalization rates, in the determination of real estate valuations. A reconciliation from net income attributable to UDR, Inc. to NOI is provided below.

Series E preferred shares are dilutive for purposes of calculating FFO per share. Consequently, distributions to Series E preferred stockholders are added to FFO and the weighted average number of shares are included in the denominator when calculating FFO per common share and unit, diluted.

During 1Q19, UDR adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (codified as ASC 842), which changed how UDR recognizes costs incurred to obtain resident and retail leases. Prior to adoption, UDR deferred and amortized over the lease term certain direct leasing costs. Under the updated standard, only those direct costs that are incremental to the arrangement may be deferred and any direct costs to negotiate or arrange a lease that would have been incurred regardless of whether the lease was obtained (non-incremental costs) shall be expensed as incurred. The standard also provided a practical expedient whereby an entity need not reassess direct costs for any pre-existing leases upon adoption. As such, the adoption of the standard resulted in UDR expensing any new non-incremental costs as incurred and continuing to amortize the pre-existing non-incremental costs deferred upon adoption over the remaining lease terms. The impact in 1Q19 for the amortization expense related to the pre-existing non-incremental costs was $1.1 million, which is backed out for FFO as Adjusted in Legal and other costs.

During 1Q19, UDR adopted ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (codified as ASC 842). The updated standard requires lessees to recognize a lease liability and a right-of-use asset for all leases on their balance sheets (with certain exceptions provided by the standard). The standard also provides a transition option that permits entities to not recast the comparative periods presented when transitioning to the standard. The adoption of the standard resulted in UDR recording operating lease right-of-use assets of $94.1 million and operating lease liabilities of $88.2 million on the March 31, 2019 Consolidated Balance Sheet. Given that UDR elected the transition option, there are no comparable balances as of December 31, 2018.
