American Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE:ARL), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011. For the three months ended December 31, 2011, the Company reported net income applicable to common shares of $0.2 million or $0.02 per share, as compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $60.7 million or $5.35 per share for the same period ended 2010.
Our net income applicable to common shares increased $95 million as compared to the prior year. The current year net loss applicable to common shares was a loss of $2.2 million, which includes gain on land sales of $34.2 million and net income from discontinued operations of $33.5 million. The prior year net loss applicable to common shares was $97.2 million, which includes loss on land sales of $10.1 million and net income from discontinued operations of $2.6 million.
Rental and other property revenues were $118.3 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011. This represents an increase of $2.2 million as compared to the prior year revenues of $116.1 million. This change, by segment, is an increase in the apartment portfolio of $8.0 million, an increase in the hotel portfolio of $0.1 million, offset by a decrease in the commercial portfolio of $5.9 million. Within the apartment portfolio, the same properties increased by $3.2 million and the developed properties increased by $4.8 million. The multifamily housing portfolio has continued to thrive, with effective rates and occupancy increasing. Within the commercial portfolio, the same properties decreased by $5.9 million due to an increase in vacancy, which we attribute to the current state of the economy. We have directed our efforts to apartment development and put some additional land projects on hold until the economic conditions turn around. We are continuing to market our properties aggressively to attract new tenants and strive for continuous improvement of our properties in order to maintain our existing tenants.
