Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. Reports First Quarter 2019 Results

DALLAS (May 15, 2019) -- Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE: TCI), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019.

In November 2018 the Company created a new subsidiary Victory Abode Apartments, LLC (“VAA”) and contributed 52 multi-family projects that it owned and operated to VAA. TCI subsequently sold a 50% interest to a third party and recorded a $154 million gain. Beginning November 19, 2018, TCI began reflecting its ownership of VAA on the Balance Sheet as an investment and its share of the Revenues, Operating Expenses, Depreciation, Amortization and Interest as “Earning from VAA”. The Statement of Operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and the information thereon reflect the operations for the properties contributed to VAA on a consolidated basis.

 

The Company believes that the completion of the joint venture creating Victory Abode Apartments has positioned the company with a dynamic platform to continue its expansion in the multifamily sector. The ongoing plan is to continue to develop and acquire apartments in the geographic markets where demand exceeds supply.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, we reported a net loss applicable to common shares of $5.6 million or ($0.64) per diluted loss per share compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $0.5 million or ($0.05) per diluted loss per share for the same period ended 2018.

Revenues

Rental and other property revenues were $11.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $31.1 million for the same period in 2018. The $19.2 million decrease is primarily due to a decrease in the amount of multifamily residential apartment buildings currently in our portfolio of nine as compared to 53 multifamily residential apartment buildings for the same period a year ago as a result of the deconsolidation of 49 residential apartment properties that were sold into the VAA Joint Venture during the fourth quarter of 2018. As the assets are now treated as unconsolidated investments, our share of rental revenues is part of income from unconsolidated investments in the current period and are no longer treated as rental income.

Expense

 

Property operating expenses decreased by $8.5 million to $6.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $14.5 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease in property operating expenses is primarily due to the deconsolidation of 49 residential apartment properties that were sold into the VAA Joint Venture during the fourth quarter of 2018 which resulted in a decrease in salary and related payroll expenses of $1.7 million, real estate taxes of approximately $3.0 million and general property operating and maintenance expenses of $3.8 million. 

Depreciation and amortization decreased by $3.3 million to $3.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $6.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. This decrease is primarily due to the deconsolidation of the residential apartments in connection with our previous sale and contribution of our interests to the VAA Joint Venture.

General and administrative expense was $2.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $2.2 million for the same period in 2018. The increase of $0.1 million in general and administrative expenses is the result of increases in advisory and management fees of approximately $0.4 million and professional and finance fees of $0.3 million offset by a decrease in accounting, tax and other general administrative fees of $0.6 million.

Other income (expense) 

Interest income was $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $3.9 million for the same period in 2018. The increase of $0.7 million was due to an increase of $1.3 million in interest on receivable owed from our Advisors, offset by a decrease of $0.8 in interest on notes receivable from other related parties.

 

Other income was $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2018. The increase is primarily the result of a $3.6 million gain recognized for deferred income associated with the sale of land during the quarter just ended held by IOR to third parties.

 

Mortgage and loan interest expense was $7.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to $14.1 million for the same period in 2018. The decrease of $6.2 million is due to the deconsolidation of residential apartment properties into the VAA Joint Venture which were encumbered by mortgage debt.

 

Foreign currency transaction was a loss of $5.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to a gain of $1.8 million for the same period in 2018. During the first quarter just ended, we paid $10.4 million in principal and $5.8 million in interests payments to our bonds denominated in Israel Shekels.

 

Loss from unconsolidated investments was $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to earnings of $11 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The loss from unconsolidated investments during the first quarter just ended was driven primarily from our share in the losses reported by the VAA Joint Venture.

 

Gain on land sales was $2.2 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to $1.3 million for the same period in 2018. In the current period we sold approximately 22.3 acres of land for a sales price of $8.7 million which resulted in a gain of $2.2 million. For the same period in 2018, we sold 112.2 acres of land for a sales price of $7.2 million and recorded a total gain of $1.3 million.
