For the reported quarter, DDR’s net loss was $7.40 million, compared to net loss of $65.95 million in Q3 FY16. The lower net loss was due to the reduction of $15.4 million in the valuation allowance recorded in the first quarter of 2017 on the Company’s preferred investment in two joint ventures, lower impairment charges and a higher gain on sale of real estate assets. During Q3 FY17, the Company’s diluted EPS was negative $0.02 compared to negative $0.18 in the same period last year.
