Income Opportunity Realty Investors, Inc. (AMEX:IOT), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010. The Company reported net income applicable to common shares of $1.84 million or $0.44 per share, as compared to a net income applicable to common shares of $0.92 million or $0.22 per share for the same period ended 2009.
Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2010 was $1.7 million or $0.41 per share, as compared to a net income applicable to common shares of $2.1 million or $0.49 per share for the same period ended 2009. The company has surplus cash flow notes receivable and interest income is recorded upon the receipt of cash. In the fourth quarter, the Company received $2.6 million during the three months ended December 31, 2010 and $3.2 million during the same period ended 2009.
Rental revenues were $313,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This represents an increase of $67,000 as compared to the prior period revenues of $246,000, due to an increase in our rental income received from the leasing of our storage warehouse.
Property operations expenses were $164,000 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This represents a decrease of $27,000, as compared to the prior period operating expenses of $191,000, due to an overall decrease in costs and additional repairs and maintenance incurred in our storage warehouse.
There was no depreciation or amortization expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, as compared to $40,000 in the prior period. In 2009, we divested ourselves of our commercial segment with the sale of the 2010 Valley View office building and the Parkway Centre retail shopping center, resulting in land held for development or sale remaining as our sole operating segment.
Our interest income was $4.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This represents a decrease of $0.4 million in the current year, as compared to interest income of $4.7 million in the prior period. The decrease is due to fewer payments received on our notes receivables from Unified Housing Foundation, an affiliated entity. The receivables are surplus cash flow notes. The entity is required to pay on the notes when they generate surplus cash flow, thus interest income is recorded when received. Less surplus cash flow was generated in the current year, as compared to the prior year.
