EBDDT is being provided to reflect the impact of the Company’s business strategy of investing in income properties utilizing tax deferred exchanges. This strategy generates significant amounts of depreciation and deferred taxes. The Company believes EBDDT is useful, along with net income, to understanding the Company’s operating results.
William H. McMunn, president and chief executive officer, stated, “Second quarter operating results produced net income of $318,782 primarily due to revenues of $2.4 million produced by our income property portfolio. In June, the Company entered into an amendment to its line of credit facility that increased the maximum loan amount from $15,000,000 to $25,000,000 and extended the maturity date of the loan to June 27, 2014. During the same period, the City of Daytona Beach approved the rescission of the Ladies Professional Golf Association Development of Regional Impact, which will relieve the Company of many time-consuming regulatory requirements. Management continues to focus on actions that will provide operating flexibility and better position the Company to prosper as the real estate market slowly recovers.”
