Regency Centers Announces Changes to

Preliminary 2008 Results

For Immediate Release

Jacksonville, Fla. (March 12, 2009)

— Regency Centers Corporation announced today that it is revising previously announced results for the year ended December 31, 2008. Net income for 2008 that was previously reported on a preliminary basis is expected to be reduced by $12.8 million.

After seeking guidance from the staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding an accounting matter for which there was no clear interpretive authority, Regency has concluded that it will adopt and apply a more restrictive method of deferred gain recognition on partial sales of properties to co-investment partnerships that provide for a distribution-in-kind of assets upon liquidation.

Regency intends to file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008 with the SEC on or before March 17, 2009 reflecting this more restrictive method of recognizing deferred gains. Regency will also file an amendment to its 2008 third quarter Form 10-Q. The revised accounting treatment has no impact on the cash proceeds received by Regency from sales to co-investment partnerships and creates no additional balance sheet liabilities.

This more restrictive method of recognizing deferred gains will be applied retrospectively from the inception of the co-investment partnerships. The Company will show the cumulative effect of the correction for all years through January 1, 2006 by making certain adjustments including to the opening balance of retained earnings and stockholders’ equity in the 2008 Form 10-K. These adjustments will reduce the opening balance of retained earnings/stockholders’ equity as of January 1, 2006 by $27.6 million or 1.5% of total stockholders’ equity. The summary financial information for the Company’s five year tables in its 2008 Form 10-K will also be adjusted to reflect the effect on those years and the cumulative effect of the correction for prior periods.
