Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2010 Results

Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE:TCI), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2010. The Company reported net loss applicable to common shares of $68.3 million or $8.42 per diluted earnings per share, as compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $80.7 million or $9.94 per diluted earnings per share for the same period ended 2009.

Net loss applicable to common shares for the three months ended December 31, 2010 was $27.9 million or $3.43 per share, as compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $26.0 million or $3.20 per share. The Company took impairment on notes receivable and real estate of $24.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to $14.0 million for the same period ended 2009.

Rental and other property revenues were $129.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This represents a decrease of $1.0 million, as compared to the prior year revenues of $130.9 million. This change, by segment, is an increase in the apartment portfolio of $3.3 million, an increase in the other portfolio of $1.5 million, offset by a decrease in the commercial portfolio of $5.7 million and a decrease in the land portfolio of $0.1 million. The commercial and hotel portfolios saw an increase in vacancy, which we attribute to the current state of the economy with some commercial tenants struggling to stay afloat and make their rental payments in the commercial properties. We have been successful in our efforts to develop new apartment communities along with operating and leasing our existing apartments. 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.

Property operating expenses were $74.0 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010. This represents an increase of $0.4 million as compared to the prior year operating expenses of $73.6 million. This change, by segment, is an increase in the land portfolio of $1.3 million offset by a decrease in the apartment portfolio of $0.9 million. We have been working hard to decrease our overall operating expenses while maintaining the same level of product and services and have been successful in doing so. The increase within the land portfolio was primarily due to an adjustment in 2009 to correct over accrual of 2008 real estate property taxes, resulting in recording lower operating expenses in the prior period. In the current period, we incurred additional real estate tax penalties and interest that we did not incur in the prior period.
