Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. reports full year results for 2018

 

DALLAS (April 1, 2019) -- Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE: TCI), a Dallas-based real estate investment company is reporting its Results of Operations for 2018. 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.

The Company believes that both the completion of the joint venture creating Victory Abode Apartments and the issuance of the Series B Bonds in the Israeli Bond Market has positioned the company along the strategic lines that it previously indicated. The Company has created 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.

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 comparative financial statements and the information below reflect approximately 46 weeks of operations for the properties contributed to VAA in 2018 in their traditional categories as compared to a full 52 weeks for 2017.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, we reported net income applicable to common shares of $180.1 million or $20.71 per share compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $16.7 million or ($1.92) per share for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Revenues

Rental and other property revenues were $121.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. This represents a decrease of $4.2 million, as compared to the prior year revenues of $125.2 million. The decrease is primarily due to the contribution of fifty- two properties to the joint venture VAA on November 19, 2018.

Expenses

Property operating expenses were $59.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. This represents a decrease of $3.7 million, compared to the prior year operating expenses of $63.1 million. The decrease is primarily due to the contribution of fifty- two properties to the joint venture VAA on November 19, 2018.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $22.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. This represents a decrease of $2.8 million compared to prior year depreciation of $25.6 million. The decrease is primarily due to the contribution of fifty-two properties to the joint venture VAA on November 19, 2018.

General and administrative expenses were $11.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. This represents an increase of $5.1 million compared to the prior year expenses of $6.3 million. The increase in general and administrative expenses was due primarily to an increase in fees paid associated with finalizing the formation of VAA as well as and general and professional fees.

Other income (expense)

Interest income was $15.8 million for the year ending December 31, 2018 compared to $13.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 for an increase of $1.9 million. This increase was primarily due to an increase of $2.7 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.

Mortgage and loan interest expense was $58.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. This represents a decrease of $1.0 million compared to the prior year expense of $59.9 million. The decrease is primarily due to the contribution of fifty-two properties to the joint venture VAA on November 19, 2018.

No gain on sales of income producing properties was recognized during the year ended December 31, 2018. Gain on sale of income-producing properties was $9.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2017, attributable to the recognition of deferred gain.

Gain on land sales was $17.4 million and $4.9 million for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The increase of approximately $12.5 million was primarily due to sales of land at Mercer Crossing recognized in 2018.

Other income was $28.2 million and $0.6 million for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The increase of $27.6 million was primarily due to a $17.6 million gain recognized in September 2018 for deferred income associated with the sale of assets, as well as income of approximately $7.6 million from insurance proceeds on Mahogany Run Golf Course.

Gain from the sale of 50% ownership in VAA was $154.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. There was no such gain in prior years.
