MAA began as The Cates Company in 1977 with 333 apartment units in Memphis, TN. Mid-America Apartment Communities, Inc. was formed in 1993 and went public in 1994, at an IPO of $19.75 per share. The company experienced accelerated growth throughout the 1990’s, with the purchase of America First REIT in 1995, and Flournoy Development Company in 1997. MAA ended the decade with 129 communities and 34,000 units, and continues to grow through additional acquisitions and joint venture funds.
