The St. Joe Company Reports First Quarter 2014 Results

The St. Joe Company (NYSE: JOE) today announced pretax income of $509.9 million for the quarter ending March 31, 2014 as compared to pretax loss of $(2.5) million for the quarter ending March 31, 2013. Net Income for the first quarter 2014 was $403.0 million, or $4.37 per share compared to a Net Loss of $(2.5) million, or $(0.03) per share for the first quarter of 2013.

During the quarter, the Company completed its previously announced sale of approximately 380,000 acres of the Company’s non-strategic timberlands and rural land to AgReserves, Inc., for approximately $562 million, which included $200 million in the form of a timber note (the “AgReserves Sale”). The Company recorded earnings of $511.1 million before income taxes for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 as a result of this sale.

Subsequent to March 31, 2014, the Company monetized the timber note from the AgReserves Sale and received $165 million in cash, net of $15 million in costs, and expects to receive the remaining $20 million in 15 years upon maturity of the timber note.
