The following communications are being filed in connection with the proposed merger of Kimco Realty Corporation and Weingarten Realty Investors.

The following communication was made available by Kimco Realty Corporation to its vendors on April 15, 2021.

Dear [Vendor Name],

I am writing to share exciting news with you.  Kimco has entered into a definitive agreement to merge with Weingarten, which will create the pre-eminent open-air shopping center and mixed-use real estate owner in the country. This strategic transaction combines two highly complementary open-air retail real estate platforms resulting in an unparalleled national portfolio of 559 high-quality assets. These properties comprise over 100 million square feet of gross leasable space and are primarily concentrated in the nation’s top metropolitan markets.

By joining forces with Weingarten, we are creating an even stronger company that is poised to benefit from increased scale in key Sun Belt markets. This will enable us to offer our tenants even greater options when it comes to advancing their real estate objectives. Importantly, this merger reflects our conviction in grocery-anchored shopping centers and advances our strategy of providing our tenants and shoppers with greater last-mile fulfillment opportunities.

We expect the transaction to close during the second half of 2021, subject to shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions. Until then, it remains business as usual with Kimco and Weingarten continuing to operate as separate and distinct companies. Once the transaction closes, Kimco’s management team will lead the combined company. We expect a smooth integration process with no interruption to our day-to-day operations.

It’s important to note that today’s news in no way affects our commercial relationship. All invoicing protocols and payment terms remain the same.

Know that we remain committed to our partnership with your firm and value our relationship. If you have any questions, please reach out to our national call center at 1-833-800-4343 or directly to your Kimco point of contact. All of us at Kimco are very excited about this transaction and the opportunities it will create for all our stakeholders over the long-term.

Sincerely,

Dave Jamieson
Chief Operating Officer

The following communication was made available by Kimco Realty Corporation to its employees on April 15, 2021.

Team,

I have some exciting news to share with you. We have entered into a definitive agreement to merge with Weingarten, which will create the pre-eminent open-air shopping center and mixed-use real estate owner in the country. Weingarten will merge with and into Kimco, with Kimco continuing as the surviving public company. This strategic transaction combines two highly complementary open-air retail real estate platforms resulting in an unparalleled national portfolio of 559 high-quality assets. These properties comprise approximately 100 million square feet of gross leasable area and are primarily concentrated in the nation’s top metropolitan markets.

By joining forces with Weingarten, we are creating an even stronger company that is poised to benefit from increased scale in key Sun Belt markets, enhanced asset quality and tenant diversity, a larger redevelopment pipeline, a deleveraged balance sheet, and greater financial flexibility. Together, we will be even better positioned to drive sustained growth in net operating income and asset value creation through continued strategic leasing and asset management. Importantly, this combination will be immediately accretive to our key financial metrics upon closing.

This merger reflects our conviction in grocery-anchored shopping centers, which have performed well throughout the pandemic and provide last-mile locations that are more valuable than ever due to their hybrid model of acting as a fulfillment epicenter. In addition to advancing our strategy of providing tenants and shoppers with greater last-mile fulfillment opportunities, this transaction will give us even greater visibility into the trends shaping necessity-based retail.

We expect the transaction to close during the second half of 2021, subject to shareholder approvals and other customary closing conditions. Until then, it remains business as usual with Kimco and Weingarten continuing to operate as separate and distinct companies. Accordingly, it is important that we remain focused on operational excellence and meeting our tenants’ needs. Once the transaction closes, the Kimco management team will continue to lead the combined company with our corporate headquarters remaining in Jericho. We expect the integration process will be smooth and streamlined, with no interruption to our day-to-day operations.

To provide more information and context on this compelling transaction, we will host a Town Hall meeting today at 1:00 pm ET. Please expect to receive a calendar invite shortly. We encourage you to join the call if you are able.

Today’s announcement will likely lead to increased media interest in Kimco. It is important that we speak in one voice, so please refrain from commenting and refer all media inquiries to Jennifer Maisch, Vice President, Marketing & Communications and Dave Bujnicki, Senior Vice President of Investor Relations & Strategy, and they will handle accordingly.

Thanks again for your hard work and dedication to Kimco. The success we have collectively achieved has made this very unique combination possible. We are excited about this transaction and the opportunities it will create for all our stakeholders over the long-term. We hope you share this enthusiasm.

Sincerely,

Conor
