Item 2.02.

Results of Operations and Financial Condition.


Following the retirement of Joel Braun, the Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer of Acadia Realty Trust (the “Company”), as further described in Item 5.02 below, the Company anticipates recognizing an aggregate charge to net income and funds from operations of approximately $2.0 million (approximately $0.03 per share) during the fourth quarter of 2018, the majority of which relates to the acceleration of vesting of certain previously granted stock-based compensation awards. However, all previously unvested performance-based awards will continue to remain subject to their vesting requirements. This charge was not incorporated into the Company’s previously-provided earnings guidance for the year ending December 31, 2018.
