A reconciliation of FFO to net income available for MAA common shareholders, and an expanded discussion of the components of FFO, can be found later in this release.

Eric Bolton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “MAA's balanced portfolio, diversified across various markets and price points of the Sunbelt region, continues to capture strong occupancy and steady rent growth. As a consequence of hurricane related costs incurred in the third quarter, expense growth was higher than the trends posted for the first half of the year. We expect to see performance in the fourth quarter return to the strong expense control results captured earlier in the year. Overall, despite headwinds from new construction deliveries in several markets, primarily impacting the higher price point locations within the portfolio, we expect continued steady rent growth over the rest of this year and into 2018. Continued high demand for apartment housing across our markets, a strong occupancy outlook, solid lease renewal pricing trends and growing momentum in opportunities from our merger transaction have MAA well positioned for the current cycle and into 2018.”

Highlights
The Combined Adjusted Same Store portfolio of properties generated a 1.7% increase in revenues for the third quarter supported by strong Average Physical Occupancy of 96.1% and effective rent growth of 2.1%.
Combined Adjusted Same Store property operating expenses grew by 3.2%, impacted by expenses incurred during the quarter resulting from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. As a result, Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI increased

1






0.8% for the quarter as compared to the same period in the prior year. Excluding the hurricane related expenses incurred, Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI increased 1.8% as compared to the same period in the prior year.
Within the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio, rents on renewals and leases written for new resident move-ins in the third quarter combined to average 2.6% higher than the previous in-place leases.
Resident turnover for the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio remained low for the third quarter at 50.4% on a rolling twelve month basis.
During the third quarter, MAA sold three properties, which were located in the Lakeland, Florida; Montgomery, Alabama; and Fort Worth, Texas markets. The sale of these three communities with an average age of 28 years achieved an economic cap rate after capex of 5.3%.
During the third quarter, MAA completed development of a new apartment community located in Atlanta, Georgia, and as of the end of the third quarter, MAA had five development projects underway.
MAA's development projects include 1,434 units, with a total projected cost of approximately $305.0 million, with approximately $69.7 million remaining to be funded as of the end of the third quarter.
As of the end of the third quarter, three properties remained in lease-up, including one development project completed during the third quarter, with average quarter-end physical occupancy of 61.5% for the group.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, MAA completed renovation of 6,543 units under its redevelopment program, achieving average rental rate increases of 9.5% above non-renovated units.

Third Quarter Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio Operating Results
To ensure comparable reporting with prior periods, the same store portfolio, or MAA Same Store Portfolio, includes properties which were stabilized and which were owned by us at the beginning of the previous year. To provide relevant operating metrics for the third quarter, stabilized communities acquired in the Post Properties Merger that would otherwise have met our requirements to be included in the MAA Same Store Portfolio, are presented on a combined adjusted basis, as if owned by MAA during the prior period. The Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio presentation below represents the MAA Same Store Portfolio and the Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio considered as a single portfolio. See the "Other Key Definitions" section of this release for more details. Post Properties communities will be eligible to enter the MAA Same Store Portfolio on January 1, 2018. Operating results for the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio of 91,700 units in MAA's Large Market and Secondary Market segments of the portfolio are presented below:

Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio revenue growth of 1.7% during the third quarter of 2017 was primarily a result of a 2.1% increase in Average Effective Rent per Unit, as compared to the same period in the prior year. Average Physical Occupancy for the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio was strong at 96.1% for the third quarter of 2017, a slight decrease from 96.3% in the same period of the prior year. Property operating expenses increased 3.2% for the third quarter of 2017, with the largest portion of the growth related to property taxes and hurricane related costs, partially offset by lower building repair and maintenance and insurance costs.

A reconciliation of NOI, including Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI, to net income available for MAA common shareholders, and an expanded discussion of the components of NOI, can be found later in this release.

Acquisition and Disposition Activity
During the third quarter, MAA closed on the disposition of three wholly-owned communities, Paddock Club Lakeland, a 464-unit community located in Lakeland, Florida; Paddock Club Montgomery, a 208-unit community located in Montgomery, Alabama; and Northwood Place, a 270-unit community located in the Fort Worth, Texas market, for combined proceeds of $88.4 million resulting in total net gains recognized on the sale of real estate assets of approximately $59 million. With the sale of the properties in Lakeland, Florida and Montgomery, Alabama, MAA exited two markets within the Secondary Market segment of the portfolio.

MAA did not make any property acquisitions during the third quarter of 2017.

Development and Lease-up Activity
As of the end of the third quarter of 2017, MAA had five development communities under construction, consisting of three expansion projects and two new development communities. Total development costs for the five communities are projected to be $305.0 million, of which an estimated $69.7 million remains to be funded as of the end of the third quarter. The expected average stabilized NOI yield on these communities is 6.3%. During the third quarter of 2017, MAA funded $32.8 million of construction costs on development projects.

MAA had three communities, containing a total of 999 units, remaining in initial lease-up as of the end of the third quarter of 2017: Charlotte at Midtown, located in Nashville, Tennessee; Post Afton Oaks, located in Houston, Texas; and Post Midtown, located in Atlanta, Georgia. Physical occupancy for the three lease-up projects averaged 61.5% at the end of the third quarter of 2017.

Redevelopment Activity
MAA continues its interior redevelopment program at select communities throughout the portfolio. During the third quarter of 2017, MAA redeveloped a total of 2,680 units at an average cost of $4,883 per unit, bringing the total units renovated during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 to 6,543, at an average cost of $4,822, achieving average rental rate increases of 9.5% above non-renovated units. MAA expects a total of 7,000 to 8,000 units to be redeveloped in 2017.

Capital Expenditures
Recurring capital expenditures totaled $20.8 million for the third quarter of 2017, or approximately $0.18 per Share, as compared to $14.2 million, or $0.18 per Share, for the same period in 2016. These expenditures led to Adjusted Funds from Operations, or AFFO, of $1.32 per Share for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $1.29 per Share for the same period in 2016.

Redevelopment, revenue enhancing and other capital expenditures during the third quarter of 2017 were $28.5 million, as compared to $20.8 million for the same period in 2016. These expenditures led to Funds Available for Distribution, or FAD, of $126.9 million for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $82.2 million for the same period in 2016. Dividends and distributions paid on common shares and noncontrolling interests during the third quarter of 2017 were $102.5 million, as compared to $65.3 million for the same period in 2016.

Recurring capital expenditures totaled $56.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, or approximately $0.48 per Share, as compared to $42.6 million, or $0.54 per Share, for the same period in 2016. These expenditures led to AFFO of $3.95 per Share for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $3.97 per Share for the same period in 2016.

Redevelopment, revenue enhancing and other capital expenditures during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $69.6 million, as compared to $57.8 million for the same period in 2016. These expenditures led to FAD of $396.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared to $258.7 million for the same period in 2016. Dividends and distributions paid on common shares and noncontrolling interests during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 were $307.4 million, as compared to $195.9 million for the same period in 2016.

A reconciliation of FFO, AFFO and FAD to net income available for MAA common shareholders and an expanded discussion of the components of FFO, AFFO and FAD can be found later in this release.

Financing Activities
During the third quarter, MAA paid off $150.0 million of senior unsecured notes, which were assumed in the Post Properties Merger, and also paid off $13.9 million remaining on a secured property mortgage, resulting in a $0.8 million net gain on debt extinguishment recorded from these transactions. The gain was due to the write-off of the mark-to-market debt adjustment related to the senior unsecured notes.

Balance Sheet
As of September 30, 2017:
Total debt to total assets (as defined in MAALP's bond covenants) was 33.2%, compared to 33.9% as of December 31, 2016;
Total debt outstanding was $4.5 billion at an average effective interest rate of 3.5%;
85.3% of total debt was fixed or hedged against rising interest rates for an average of 4.8 years;
Approximately $795.4 million combined cash and capacity under MAA's unsecured revolving credit facility was available; and

3






Unencumbered NOI was 82.9% of total NOI, as compared to 78.4% as of December 31, 2016.

Merger Related Activities
In connection with the Post Properties Merger, MAA incurred a total of $0.1 million of merger costs during the third quarter of 2017 and a total of $4.0 million, or $0.03 per Share, of merger costs during the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Such merger costs consist primarily of severance, legal, professional and advisory costs.

Integration efforts continue to progress well, with the Post Properties portfolio consolidated into MAA's operating structure and with activities to combine the operating and financial system platforms well underway. During the third quarter of 2017, MAA incurred $4.0 million or $0.03 per Share, of integration costs, which were primarily related to temporary systems, staffing, facilities and consulting costs necessary for the integration of the companies' business platforms. During the nine months ended September 30, 2017, MAA incurred $10.5 million, or $0.09 per Share, of integration costs. MAA expects to incur additional integration costs as integration efforts continue.

Once the business platforms are fully integrated, MAA continues to forecast expected synergies of approximately $20.0 million in gross overhead costs (combined general and administrative costs and property management expense savings) to be realized. MAA also anticipates additional opportunities and savings to be gained from enhanced efficiencies due to increased portfolio scale, from reconciling various operating practices between the two companies, from significant redevelopment opportunities at a number of existing properties, and from an improved cost of capital due to increased strength and liquidity of the combined balance sheet.

As part of the Post Properties Merger, MAA issued 867,846 shares of publicly traded preferred stock in exchange for 867,846 shares of publicly traded preferred stock previously issued by Post Properties. The MAA preferred shares have the same rights preferences, privileges and voting powers as those of the Post Properties preferred shares. The preferred shares have a $50 redemption price with an 8.5% cumulative coupon and are redeemable beginning in October 2026. At the time of the Post Properties Merger transaction, the preferred shares had a market value in excess of the $50 redemption price, which created an implied embedded derivative. According to GAAP, the derivative must be bifurcated from the preferred shares and recorded at fair market value each period. Due to the low volume of trading for the preferred shares and changes in market interest rates, the valuation outcome can be volatile. During the third quarter of 2017, MAA recorded $4.1 million of non-cash income related to the embedded derivative, bringing the total non-cash income recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 to $5.8 million, resulting in a recorded derivative value of $18.2 million. MAA believes the quarterly revaluation of the embedded derivative has no significant economic impact on the company, and expects the valuation to remain volatile over the remaining call period.

95th Consecutive Quarterly Common Dividend Declared
MAA declared its 95th consecutive quarterly common dividend at an annual rate of $3.48 per common share, which will be paid on October 31, 2017 to holders of record on October 13, 2017.

2017 Net Income per diluted common share and FFO per Share Guidance
MAA is updating 2017 guidance for Net income per diluted common share as well as FFO per Share, which is a non-GAAP measure. Net income per diluted common share is expected to be in the range of $2.76 to $2.86 per diluted common share for the full year of 2017. FFO per Share for the year is expected to be in the range of $5.84 to $5.94 per Share, or $5.89 per Share at the mid-point, as compared to a prior range of $5.77 to $5.97 per Share, or $5.87 per Share at the mid-point. FFO per Share for the fourth quarter is expected to be in the range of $1.40 to $1.50 per Share, or $1.45 per Share at the midpoint.

Revenue growth for the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio is expected to be in the range of 2.0% to 2.5% for the full year based on continued steady occupancy and normal seasonal pricing trends in the fourth quarter, while expense growth is expected to be in the range of 1.75% to 2.25% for the full year including the impact of previously mentioned hurricane related costs incurred in the third quarter.  As a result, MAA expects NOI growth for the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio for the full year to be in the range of 2.0% to 2.5%.

MAA does not forecast Net income available for common shareholders per diluted common share on a quarterly basis as it is not reasonable to accurately predict the timing of forecasted acquisition and disposition activity within a particular quarter (rather than during the course of the full year). Acquisition and disposition activity materially affects depreciation and capital gains or losses, which, combined, generally represent the difference between Net income available for common shareholders and FFO. As outlined in the definitions of non-GAAP measures accompanying this release, MAA's definition of FFO is in accordance with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts', or NAREIT, definition. MAA believes that FFO is helpful in understanding operating performance in that FFO excludes depreciation expense of real estate assets and certain other non-routine items.

(1) A reconciliation of Gross Assets to Total assets and Gross Real Estate Assets to Real estate assets, net, along with an expanded discussion of their components, can be found later in this release.
(2) Recurring Adjusted EBITDA in this calculation represents the trailing twelve month period for each date presented. A reconciliation of the following items and an expanded discussion of their respective components can be found later in this release: (i) EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Recurring Adjusted EBITDA to Net income; and (ii) Net Debt to Unsecured notes payable and Secured notes payable.
(3) Since only one month of Recurring Adjusted EBITDA for the Post Properties communities is included in the results for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2016, in calculating the ratio as of December 31, 2016, we have adjusted Net Debt by averaging the Net Debt for the prior four quarters.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted EBITDA
For purposes of calculations in this release, Adjusted Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, or Adjusted EBITDA, is composed of EBITDA adjusted for net gain or loss on asset sales and insurance and other settlement proceeds, and gain or loss on debt extinguishment. As an owner and operator of real estate, MAA considers Adjusted EBITDA to be an important measure of performance from core operations because Adjusted EBITDA does not include various income and expense items that are not indicative of operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders as an indicator of financial performance. MAA's computation of Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methodology utilized by other companies to calculate Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Funds From Operations (AFFO)
AFFO is composed of FFO less recurring capital expenditures. AFFO should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders. As an owner and operator of real estate, MAA considers AFFO to be an important measure of performance from operations because AFFO measures the ability to control revenues, expenses and recurring capital expenditures.

Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI
Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI represents total operating revenues less total property operating expenses, excluding depreciation, for all properties classified within the Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio during the period. Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders. MAA believes Combined Adjusted Same Store NOI is a helpful tool in evaluating the operating performance within MAA's markets because it measures the core operations of property performance by excluding corporate level expenses and other items not related to property operating performance.

EBITDA
For purposes of calculations in this release, Earnings Before Interest, Income Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, or EBITDA, is composed of net income plus depreciation and amortization, interest expense, and income taxes. As an owner and operator of real estate, MAA considers EBITDA to be an important measure of performance from core operations because EBITDA does not include various expense items that are not indicative of operating performance. EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders as an indicator of financial performance.

Funds Available for Distribution (FAD)
FAD is composed of FFO less total capital expenditures, excluding development spending and property acquisitions. FAD should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders. As an owner and operator of real estate, MAA considers FAD to be an important measure of performance from core operations because FAD measures the ability to control revenues, expenses and total capital expenditures.

Funds From Operations (FFO)
FFO represents net income available for MAA common shareholders (computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP) excluding extraordinary items, asset impairment, gains or losses on disposition of real estate assets, plus net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and adjustments for joint ventures to reflect FFO on the same basis. Because noncontrolling interest is added back, FFO, when used in this document, represents FFO attributable to the Company. While MAA's definition of FFO is in accordance with the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts' definition, it may differ from the methodology for calculating FFO utilized by other REITs and, accordingly, may not be comparable to such other REITs. FFO should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance. MAA believes that FFO is helpful in understanding operating performance in that FFO excludes depreciation and amortization of real estate assets. MAA believes that GAAP historical cost depreciation of real estate assets is generally not correlated with changes in the value of those assets, whose value does not diminish predictably over time, as historical cost depreciation implies.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (CONTINUED)
 
 
 

Gross Assets
Gross Assets represents Total assets plus Accumulated depreciation, the accumulated depreciation for corporate properties, which is included in Corporate property, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets and accumulated depreciation for Assets held for sale, which is included in Assets held for sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. MAA believes that Gross Assets can be used as a helpful tool in evaluating its balance sheet positions. MAA believes that GAAP historical cost depreciation of real estate assets is generally not correlated with changes in the value of those assets, whose value does not diminish predictably over time, as historical cost depreciation implies.

Gross Real Estate Assets
Gross Real Estate Assets represents Real estate assets, net plus Accumulated depreciation, the accumulated depreciation for corporate properties, which is included in Corporate property, net on the Consolidated Balance Sheets, and accumulated depreciation for Assets held for sale, which is included in Assets held for sale on the Consolidated Balance Sheets plus Cash and cash equivalents plus 1031(b) exchange proceeds included in Restricted cash on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. MAA believes that Gross Real Estate Assets can be used as a helpful tool in evaluating its balance sheet positions. MAA believes that GAAP historical cost depreciation of real estate assets is generally not correlated with changes in the value of those assets, whose value does not diminish predictably over time, as historical cost depreciation implies.

Net Debt
Net Debt represents Unsecured notes payable and Secured notes payable less Cash and cash equivalents and 1031(b) proceeds included in Restricted cash on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. MAA believes Net Debt is a helpful tool in evaluating its debt position.

Net Operating Income (NOI)
Net operating income represents total operating revenues less total property operating expenses, excluding depreciation, for all properties held during the period, regardless of their status as held for sale. NOI should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders. MAA believes NOI by market is a helpful tool in evaluating the operating performance within MAA's markets because it measures the core operations of property performance by excluding corporate level expenses and other items not related to property operating performance.

Recurring Adjusted EBITDA
Recurring Adjusted EBITDA represents Adjusted EBITDA further adjusted to exclude certain items that are not considered part of MAA's core business operations such as acquisition and merger and integration expenses. MAA believes Recurring Adjusted EBITDA is an important performance measure as it adjusts for certain items that by their nature are not comparable over periods and therefore tend to obscure actual operating performance. Recurring Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to Net income available for MAA common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance. MAA's computation of Recurring Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methodology utilized by other companies to calculate Recurring Adjusted EBITDA.

OTHER KEY DEFINITIONS

Average Effective Rent per Unit
Average effective rent per unit represents the average of gross rent amounts after the effect of leasing concessions for occupied units plus prevalent market rates asked for unoccupied units, divided by the total number of units. Leasing concessions represent discounts to the current market rate. MAA believes average effective rent is a helpful measurement in evaluating average pricing. It does not represent actual rental revenue collected per unit.

Average Physical Occupancy
Average physical occupancy represents the average of the daily physical occupancy for the quarter.

Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio
Combined Adjusted Same Store Portfolio represents the MAA Same Store Portfolio and the Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio considered as a single portfolio, as if the Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio was owned by MAA during all periods presented. For comparability purposes, certain adjustments have been made to the prior year Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio. See the definition of the Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio for more details.

17




OTHER KEY DEFINITIONS (CONTINUED)
 
 
 

Development Portfolio
Communities remain identified as development until certificates of occupancy are obtained for all units under development. Once all units are delivered and available for occupancy, the community moves into the Lease-up Portfolio.

Lease-up Portfolio
New acquisitions acquired during lease-up and newly developed communities remain in the Lease-up Portfolio until stabilized.

Non-Same Store Portfolio
Other Non-Same Store Portfolio includes recent acquisitions, communities that have been identified for disposition, and communities that have undergone a significant casualty loss.

MAA Same Store Portfolio
MAA reviews its Same Store Portfolio at the beginning of each calendar year, or as significant transactions warrant. Communities are generally added into the MAA Same Store Portfolio if they were owned and stabilized at the beginning of the previous year. Communities that have been approved by MAA's Board of Directors for disposition are excluded from the MAA Same Store Portfolio. Communities that have undergone a significant casualty loss are also excluded from the MAA Same Store Portfolio. Within the MAA Same Store Portfolio communities are designated as operating in Large or Secondary Markets:

Large Market Same Store communities are generally those communities in markets with a population of at least one million and at least 1% of the total public multifamily REIT units.

Secondary Market Same Store communities are generally those communities in markets with either a population less than one million or less than 1% of the total public multifamily REIT units, or both.

Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio
Post Adjusted Same Store Portfolio represents the Post Properties same store portfolio that would have been in effect had the properties been owned by MAA since January 1, 2016.  Prior year results have been adjusted for consistency with MAA accounting policies and year over year comparisons.  The primary adjustments include moving corporate property management expenses, exterior paint costs and IT operating systems costs out of property expenses. Because these properties have only been owned by MAA since December 1, 2016, they are not included in the MAA Same Store Portfolio. See MAA Same Store Portfolio for more information regarding inclusion. These properties have been identified in certain tables to provide Combined Adjusted Same Store results as if the properties had been owned by MAA in prior periods. These properties will be eligible to join the MAA Same Store portfolio in January 2018.

Stabilized Communities
Communities are considered stabilized after achieving at least 90% occupancy for 90 days.

Total Market Capitalization
Total Market Capitalization equals the number of shares of common stock plus units not held by MAA at period end multiplied by the closing stock price at period end, plus total debt outstanding.

Unencumbered NOI
Unencumbered NOI represents NOI generated by our unencumbered assets (as defined in MAALP's bond covenants).
