Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2010 Results

General and administrative expenses were $5.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. This represents a decrease of $2.0 million, as compared to the prior period expense of $7.0 million. This change is due to a reduction in administrative expenses and cost reimbursements to our advisor, in addition to reductions in professional services.

Other income was $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, as compared to $3.6 million in the prior period. This represents a decrease of $2.0 million, which is primarily due to $2.8 million of gain recorded, in the prior period, on the disposition of our investment in the Korean REIT, offset by a fee for services rendered in connection with a sale of mineral rights, owned by a third party, in Poland.

Provision on impairment of notes receivable, investments in real estate partnerships, and real estate assets decreased by $28.6 million as compared to prior period. There were no impairment reserves taken in the current period. Impairment in the prior period was recorded as an additional loss of $1.8 million in the commercial portfolio, $18.0 million in land we currently hold and $8.8 million in land that was sold for a loss in subsequent periods.

Loss on land sales was $6.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. This represents a decrease of $12.3 million as compared to the prior period gain of $6.3 million.

Included in discontinued operations are a total of 10 and 16 properties for 2010 and 2009, respectively. Properties sold in 2010 have been reclassified to discontinued operations for current and prior year reporting periods. The gain on sale of the properties is also included in discontinued operations for those years.
