Amid a slew of changes at the Rouse Co. that has included corporate and executive restructuring, the Columbia real estate investment trust said yesterday that its funds from operations were up in the first quarter of 2003. However, new accounting rules that require some one-time charges to be included in the results caused Rouse to miss Wall Street analysts' consensus earnings estimate. The charges - $24 million this quarter - stemmed predominantly from deferred taxes and severance for executives who took early retirement.

The Rouse Co. reported a gain yesterday in funds from operations. But taking into account almost $52 million in one-time charges, the company lost money in the fourth quarter. The charges stem from a corporate reorganization, which will spill over into this year, and declining values of shopping malls in New Jersey and Florida. The malls accounted for $39 million of the charges. Analysts said the charges were appropriate and that the quarterly loss was not significant. "We were impressed with the quarter," said David Fick, a managing director and Rouse analyst at Legg Mason Wood Walker Inc., who criticized last year the way the company accounted in its funds from operations for the charges from corporate restructuring.
