Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (NYS: TCI) , a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012. TCI announced today that the Company reported net loss applicable to common shares of $0.5 million or $0.07 per diluted earnings per share, as compared to a net income applicable to common shares of $0.6 million or $0.08 per diluted earnings per share for the same period ended 2011. Included in the net loss applicable to common shares of $0.5 million is $5.4 million in depreciation and amortization expense for the three months ended September 30, 2012. For the same period ending September 30, 2011, included in the net income applicable to common shares of $0.6 million is $5.4 million in depreciation and amortization expense.

For the past year and a half TCI has shown an unwavering commitment to fortify our portfolio and streamline our operational activity; all while maintaining our commitment to creating value. TCI is pleased that we are seeing improved results 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.


Rental and other property revenues were $28.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. This represents a decrease of $1.2 million, as compared to the prior period revenues of $29.3 million. The change, by segment, is an increase in the apartment portfolio of $0.5 million, a decrease in the commercial portfolio of $1.5 million and a decrease in the land and other portfolio of $0.2 million. Our apartment portfolio continues to thrive in the current economic conditions with occupancies averaging over 95%. Within our commercial portfolio, the same properties decreased by $1.5 million, primarily due to miscellaneous non-recurring revenue received in the prior period. We continue to market our properties aggressively to attract new tenants and strive for continuous improvement of our properties in order to maintain our existing tenants.

General and administrative expenses were $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. This represents a decrease of $1.5 million, as compared to the prior period expenses of $2.7 million. This change is primarily due to losses recorded in the prior period from investment write-offs due to potential deals not realized. Professional services decreased by $0.4 million and cost reimbursements to our Advisor decreased by $0.2 million.

Interest income was $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. This represents an increase of $0.5 million, as compared to the prior period interest income of $0.5 million. The majority of the increase is due to the cash received on the cash flow notes from Unified Housing Foundation, Inc. related to the mid-year surplus cash calculation.

Other income was $1.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. This represents an increase of $1.4 million, as compared to the prior period other income of $0.1 million. This relates to the agreement between Unified Housing Foundation, Inc. and TCI for consulting services related to the development of apartment projects.

Mortgage and loan interest was $9.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. This represents a decrease of $2.8 million, as compared to the prior period interest expense of $11.8 million. This change, by segment, is a decrease in the apartment portfolio of $0.9 million and a decrease in the commercial portfolio of $1.9 million. Within the apartment portfolio, the same apartment portfolio decreased $1.8 million and the developed properties increased $0.9 million due to properties in the lease-up phase. The same store apartment portfolio decreased due to the refinances closed with long term, low interest rates. For the developed properties, once an apartment is completed, the interest expense is no longer capitalized. Within the commercial portfolio, the same properties decreased by $1.8 million. This decrease is primarily related to a commercial loan that was in default status in 2011 and was accruing interest at the default interest rate. The default rate is no longer applicable in the current period.

Gain on land sales decreased for the three months ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the prior period. In the current period we sold 102.28 acres of land in seven separate transactions for an aggregate sales price of $16.1 million and recorded a gain of $2.9 million. In the prior period, we sold 2,999.28 acres of land in six separate transactions for an aggregate sales price of $52.4 million and recorded a gain of $6.3 million.

Included in discontinued operations are a total of five and 18 properties for 2012 and 2011, respectively. Properties sold in 2012 have been reclassified to discontinued operations for current and prior year reporting periods. The gain on sale of income-producing properties is also included in discontinued operations for those years.
