AMREP CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)

Three and Nine Months Ended January 31, 2021 and 2020

 

(1)       SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL REPORTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by AMREP Corporation (the “Company”) pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for interim financial information, and do not include all the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. The Company, through its subsidiaries, is primarily engaged in two business segments: land development and homebuilding. The Company has no foreign sales. All references to the Company in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q include the Registrant and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

In the opinion of management, these unaudited consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, which are of a normal recurring nature, considered necessary to reflect a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of what may occur in future periods. Unless the context otherwise indicates, all references to 2021 and 2020 are to the fiscal years ending April 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

The unaudited consolidated financial statements herein should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2020, which was filed with the SEC on July 27, 2020 (the “2020 Form 10-K”). Certain 2020 balances in these financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation with no effect on net income (loss) or shareholders’ equity.

 

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The significant accounting policies used in preparing these consolidated financial statements are consistent with the accounting policies described in the 2020 Form 10-K, except for those adopted as described below.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

·Home sale revenues: The Company accounts for revenue from home sales in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606).  Revenues and cost of revenues from home sales are recognized at the time each home is delivered and title and possession are transferred to the buyer. Generally, the Company’s performance obligation to deliver a home is satisfied in less than one year from the date a binding sale agreement is signed. In general, the Company’s performance obligation for each of the home sales is fulfilled upon the delivery of the completed home, which generally coincides with the receipt of cash consideration from the counterparty. If the Company’s performance obligations are not complete upon the home closing, the Company defers a portion of the home sale revenues related to the outstanding obligations and subsequently recognizes that revenue upon completion of such obligations. As of January 31, 2021, the home sale revenues and related costs the Company deferred related to these obligations were immaterial.

 

·Forfeited customer deposits: Forfeited customer deposits for homes are recognized in “Home sale revenues” in the period in which the Company determines that the customer will not complete the purchase of the home and the Company has the right to retain the deposit.

 

·Sales incentives: In order to promote sales of homes, the Company may offer home buyers sales incentives. These incentives vary by type and amount on a community-by-community and home-by-home basis. Incentives are reflected as a reduction in home sale revenues.

 

8

 

 

·Home sale cost of revenues. Home construction and related costs are capitalized as incurred within real estate inventory under the specific identification method on the consolidated balance sheet and are charged to home sale cost of revenues on the consolidated statement of operations when the related home is sold.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement: Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. ASU 2018-13 eliminates certain disclosure requirements for fair value measurements for all entities, requires public entities to disclose certain new information and modifies some disclosure requirements to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements. ASU 2018-13 was effective for the Company on May 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 by the Company did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-14, Compensation—Retirement Benefits—Defined Benefit Plans—General (Subtopic 715-20): Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans. ASU 2018-14 removes disclosures that no longer are considered cost beneficial, clarifies the specific requirements of disclosures and adds disclosure requirements identified as relevant for companies with defined benefit retirement plans. ASU 2018-14 was effective for the Company on May 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-14 by the Company did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Income Taxes – Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which removes certain exceptions for companies related to tax allocations and simplifies when companies recognize deferred tax liabilities in an interim period. ASU 2019-12 will be effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning May 1, 2021. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that this ASU will have on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

INTRODUCTION

 

AMREP Corporation (the “Company”), through its subsidiaries, is primarily engaged in two business segments: land development and homebuilding. The Company has no foreign sales. All references to the Company in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q include the Registrant and its subsidiaries. The following provides information that management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of the Company’s consolidated results of operations and financial condition. The information contained in this section should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in this report on Form 10-Q and with the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2020, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 27, 2020 (the “2020 Form 10-K”). Many of the amounts and percentages presented in this Item 2 have been rounded for convenience of presentation. Unless the context otherwise indicates, all references to 2021 and 2020 are to the fiscal years ending April 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based on the accounting policies used and disclosed in the 2020 consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes that were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and included as part of the 2020 Form 10-K and in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in this report on Form 10-Q. The preparation of those consolidated financial statements required management to make estimates and assumptions that affected the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual amounts or results could differ from those estimates and assumptions.

 

The Company’s critical accounting policies, assumptions and estimates are described in Item 7 of Part II of the 2020 Form 10-K. There have been no changes in these critical accounting policies.

 

The significant accounting policies of the Company are described in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements contained in the 2020 Form 10-K and in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements included in this report on Form 10-Q. Information concerning the Company’s implementation and the impact of recent accounting standards issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board is included in the notes to the consolidated financial statements contained in the 2020 Form 10-K and in the notes to the consolidated financial statements included in this report on Form 10-Q. The Company did not adopt any accounting policy in the nine months ended January 31, 2021 that had a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

The Company adopted the following accounting policies effective May 1, 2020:

 

·In August 2018, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement: Disclosure Framework – Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement. ASU 2018-13 eliminates certain disclosure requirements for fair value measurements for all entities, requires public entities to disclose certain new information and modifies some disclosure requirements to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements. ASU 2018-13 was effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning May 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-13 by the Company did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

·In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-14, Compensation—Retirement Benefits—Defined Benefit Plans—General (Subtopic 715-20): Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Defined Benefit Plans. ASU 2018-14 removes disclosures that no longer are considered cost beneficial, clarifies the specific requirements of disclosures and adds disclosure requirements identified as relevant for companies with defined benefit retirement plans. ASU 2018-14 was effective for the Company’s fiscal year beginning May 1, 2020. The adoption of ASU 2018-14 by the Company did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

·Home sale revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 were higher than the prior periods by $1,261,000 and $1,463,000, due to the Company completing its first home sales to customers during 2021.

·Rental revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 were lower than the prior periods by $28,000 and $208,000 due to a decrease in rent received from tenants at the Company’s warehouse and office buildings in Palm Coast, Florida offset by a new lease at a retail building in the Las Fuentes at Panorama Village subdivision in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

 

·

·Land sale cost of revenues in New Mexico for the three months ended January 31, 2021 were lower than the prior three month period by $160,000. Land sale cost of revenues in New Mexico for the nine months ended January 31, 2021 were higher than the prior nine month period by $2,526,000. The average gross profit percentage on land sales in New Mexico before indirect costs was 51% and 33% for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 compared to 19% and 18% for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020. The profit percentage increase was attributable to the lower than estimated cost associated with certain completed projects and demand for lots by builders resulting in higher revenue per developed lot. As a result of many factors, including the nature and timing of specific transactions and the type and location of land being sold, revenues, average selling prices and related average gross profits from land sales can vary significantly from period to period and prior results are not necessarily a good indication of what may occur in future periods.

 

·Home sale cost of revenues for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 were higher than the prior periods by $1,082,000 and $1,256,000 due to the Company completing its first home sales to customers during 2021. Home sale gross margin was 14% for each of the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021.

·Land development general and administrative expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2021 were higher than the prior three month period by $265,000, primarily due to the allocation of costs from corporate to land development, increased employee hiring and increased health care benefit costs. Land development general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended January 31, 2021 were substantially similar to the prior nine month period.

 

·Homebuilding general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 were higher than the prior periods by $137,000 and $356,000, due to homebuilding being a new business segment.

 

·Corporate general and administrative expenses for the three months ended January 31, 2021 were lower than the prior period by $118,000, primarily due to the allocation of costs from corporate to land development. Corporate general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended January 31, 2021 were lower than the prior period by $2,795,000, primarily due to a non-cash pre-tax pension settlement charge of $2,929,000 in the nine months ended January 31, 2020 as a result of the Company’s defined benefit pension plan paying an aggregate of $7,280,000 in lump sum payouts of pension benefits to former employees.

 

Interest (expense) income, net decreased to $(21,000) and $(27,000) for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 from $58,000 and $323,000 for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020, primarily due to a reduction in interest rates on cash balances and the elimination of the deferred purchase price and interest accrual related thereto with respect to the sale of the Company’s fulfillment services business (refer to Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements contained in the 2020 Form 10-K for detail regarding the non-cash impairment charge of the deferred purchase price related to the sale of the Company’s fulfillment services business).

 

Other income of $950,000 for the nine months ended January 31, 2021 consisted of a settlement payment of $650,000 from a former business segment of the Company (refer to Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements contained in the 2020 Form 10-K for detail regarding the settlement agreement) and $300,000 of debt forgiveness. Other income of $300,000 for the three months ended January 31, 2021 consisted of debt forgiveness.

 

The Company had a provision for income taxes of $710,000 and $1,175,000 for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 compared to a provision for income taxes of $396,000 and $(360,000) for the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020. This change is caused by the three and nine months ended January 31, 2021 reporting income in both periods, compared to the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020 reporting a loss for the three month period and income for the nine month period.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

The Company’s primary sources of funding for working capital requirements are cash flow from operations, bank financing for specific real estate projects, a revolving line of credit and existing cash balances. The Company’s liquidity is affected by many factors, including some that are based on normal operations and some that are related to the real estate industry and the economy generally. Except as described below, there have been no material changes to the Company’s liquidity and capital resources as reflected in the Liquidity and Capital Resources section of Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations in the 2020 Form 10-K.

 

Operating Activities

Real estate inventory increased from $53,449,000 at April 30, 2020 to $55,607,000 at January 31, 2021, primarily due to increased land development activity, the acquisition of land and homebuilding construction, offset in part by land and home sales.

Environmental and Regulatory Matters

 

Government restrictions, standards or regulations intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or potential climate change impacts may result in restrictions on land development or homebuilding in certain areas and may increase energy, transportation or raw material costs, which could reduce the Company’s profit margins and adversely affect the Company’s results of operations. Weather conditions and natural disasters can harm the Company. The occurrence of natural disasters or severe weather conditions can delay or increase costs of land development, home construction and home closings, adversely affect the cost or availability of materials or labor or damage homes or land development under construction. The Company is also subject to a significant number and variety of local, state and federal laws and regulations concerning protection of health, safety, labor standards and the environment. These matters may result in delays, may cause the Company to incur substantial compliance, remediation, mitigation and other costs, and can prohibit or severely restrict land development and homebuilding activity in environmentally sensitive areas.

 

Statement of Forward-Looking Information

 

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by or on behalf of the Company. The Company and its representatives may from time to time make written or oral statements that are “forward-looking”, including statements contained in this report and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, reports to the Company’s shareholders and news releases. All statements that express expectations, estimates, forecasts or projections are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Words such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, “projects”, “forecasts”, “may”, “should”, variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and contingencies that are difficult to predict. All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report or, in the case of any document incorporated by reference, the date of that document. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or any person acting on behalf of the Company are qualified by the cautionary statements in this section. Many of the factors that will determine the Company’s future results are beyond the ability of management to control or predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in or suggested by such forward-looking statements.

 

29 

 

 

The forward-looking statements contained in this report include, but are not limited to, statements regarding (1) the Company’s expected liquidity sources, (2) the availability of bank financing for projects, (3) the utilization of existing bank financing, (4) the timing of development of land held as investment assets, (5) the backlog of homes under contract and in production and the dollar amount of expected sales revenue when such homes are closed, (6) the offering of sales incentives to home buyers, (7) the effect of recent accounting pronouncements, (8) the timing of recognizing unrecognized compensation expense related to shares of common stock issued under the AMREP Corporation 2016 Equity Compensation Plan, (9) the future issuance of deferred common share units to directors of the Company and (10) the future business conditions that may be experienced by the Company.

Item 4.   Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Vice President, Finance and Accounting, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) as of the end of the period covered by this report. As a result of such evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Vice President, Finance and Accounting have concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of January 31, 2021 to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in the reports the Company files or submits under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Vice President, Finance and Accounting, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. The Company believes that a control system, no matter how well designed and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the control system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

No change in the Company’s system of internal control over “financial reporting” (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) occurred during the most recent fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, internal control over financial reporting.
