DALLAS (April 2, 2012) -- Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc.

The current year net loss applicable to common shares of $9.4 million or $1.12 per share includes gain on land sales of $6.9 million, $4.7 million of provisions on the impairment of notes receivable and real estate assets, and net income from discontinued operations of $2.5 million.

The Company has an unwavering commitment to fortify our portfolio and streamline our operational activity; while at the same time maintaining our commitment to creating value. We are pleased that we are seeing improvements in our operations from these endeavors and will continue to adapt to market challenges with an eye on both near term economic challenges and long-term prospects as the real estate market improves.
 
Our apartment portfolio continues to thrive in the current economic conditions with occupancies averaging over 95%. We continue to work aggressively to attract new tenants and strive for continuous improvement of our properties in order to maintain our existing tenants.
 
Rental and other property revenues were $116.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. This represents an increase of $9.7 million, as compared to the prior year revenues of $106.3 million. This change, by segment, is an increase in the apartment portfolio of $7.4 million, an increase in the commercial portfolio of $2.6 million offset by a decrease in the land and other portfolios of $0.3 million. Within the apartment portfolio, there was an increase of $6.1 million in the developed properties in the lease-up phase and an increase of $1.3 million in the same property portfolio. Our existing commercial portfolio increased by $2.6 million in the same store properties. This increase is due to a lease termination fee from a settlement agreement with a commercial tenant.
 
Depreciation and amortization expense was $21.6 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. This represents an increase of $2.6 million, as compared to the prior year expense of $19.0 million. This change, by segment, is an increase in the apartment portfolio of $1.0 million and an increase in the commercial portfolio of $1.6 million. Within the commercial portfolio, there was an increase of $1.6 million for the same store properties. The developed properties in the apartment portfolio increased by $1.0 million as the buildings became substantially complete and depreciation began.
 
General and administrative expenses were $5.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012. This represents a decrease of $4.0 million as compared to the prior year expenses of $9.4 million. This change is primarily due to losses recorded in the prior period from investment write offs due to potential deals not realized along with a decrease in professional services by $1.1 million, a decrease in franchise taxes by $0.9 million and a decrease in costs reimbursements to our advisor by $0.7 million.
 
The provision for impairment of notes receivable, investment in real estate partnerships, and real estate assets was $4.7 million for the period ended December 31, 2012.

In our commercial portfolio, an impairment reserve of $2.4 million was taken in response to a deficiency agreement with the existing lender. In the prior period, impairment was recorded as an additional loss in the investment portfolio of $5.2 million in the apartment properties we currently hold, $2.0 million in commercial properties we currently hold, $2.4 million in land parcels we currently hold, $27.0 million in land that was sold subsequent to the prior period and $0.4 million in impairment on our investments in joint ventures.
