American Spectrum Realty Reports First Quarter Results

American Spectrum Realty, Inc. (AMEX: AQQ) (“the Company”), a real estate investment, management and leasing company headquartered in Houston, Texas, announced today its results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.

Rental revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2011 increased by $11.2 million, or 171%, in comparison to the three months ended March 31, 2010. The increase in rental revenue was primarily due to the consolidation of variable interest entities (“VIE”) which resulted in additional rental revenues of approximately $11.1 million. Rental revenue for the Company’s other owned properties increased by $0.1 million. This increase for other owned properties was due to the acquisition of two properties in the second quarter of 2010, which accounted for an increase in rental revenue of $0.4 million. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in rental revenue for properties owned at both March 31, 2011 and March 2010 of $0.3 million, primarily attributable to an increase in rent concessions.

Third party management and leasing revenue increased by approximately $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 when compared to the three months ended March 31, 2010. The increase was due to an increase in third party management and leasing revenues attributable to the Company’s third party management and leasing contracts.

The Company’s net loss attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $2.1 million, or $0.69 per share, compared to net income attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2010 of $0.4 million, or $0.15 per share (restated from $0.18 per share). The net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2010 included income from discontinued operations of $2.7 million.

The Company’s Funds From Operations (FFO), a widely accepted supplemental measure of REIT performance established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, was $0.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011 compared to $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010. The Company’s business is the ownership, operation and management of real estate. It believes that FFO is helpful to investors when measuring operating performance because it excludes various items that are considered in the determination of net income or loss that do not relate to or are not indicative of operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of operating properties and depreciation and amortization, which can make periodic and peer analyses of operating performance more difficult. The following table reflects the reconciliation of FFO to net income (loss) attributable to the Company, the most directly comparable Generally Accepted Accounting Principles measure, for the three months ended March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2010 (in thousands):
Three Months March 31,
2011   2010
Net (loss) income attributable to the Company $ (2,039 ) $ 420
Depreciation and amortization from discontinued operations 712 839
Gain on sale of discontinued operations - 4,315
Impairment expense 150 -
Deferred income tax (benefit) expense (1,127 ) 438
Depreciation and amortization attributable to the Company’s owned properties 3,031   2,930
FFO $ 727   $ 312
