Financial Results

Revenue

Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, increased 30% to $4.8 million, compared to $3.7 million during the same quarter in 2011. This increase included revenue generated by the sale of 16.6 acres of industrial land for $618,000 and increasing rent revenue in our income properties portfolio offset slightly by a decrease in revenues from our golf operations. Total revenue for the quarter also reflected revenue from subsurface leasing arrangements commencing in the second half of 2011. Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012, increased to $9.7 million, compared to $7.6 million during the same period in 2011.

Net Income

Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 increased 88% to $599,586, compared to $318,782 during the same quarter in 2011. Our results in the quarter benefited from the approximately $1.1 million increase in revenues and a reduction in operating expenses of approximately $280,000 in our golf operations, offset by increased general and administrative costs, which were attributable to an increase in our stock compensation expense of approximately $660,000 resulting from grants of stock options and restricted stock in the second half of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2012 increased to $1,093,987, equivalent to $0.19 per share, compared to $59,877, equivalent to $0.01 per share, during the same period in 2011. Our results through the six months ended June 30, 2012 benefited from the approximately $2.1 million increase in revenues and the reduction of operating expenses in our golf operations of approximately $410,000, offset by increased general and administrative costs which were attributable to an increase in our stock compensation expense of approximately $460,000 resulting from the grants of stock options and restricted stock.

Real Estate Portfolio Update

Property Dispositions

In May 2012, the Company sold its property leased to Northern Tool & Equipment Company in Asheville, North Carolina, and its property in Powder Springs, Georgia, leased to Walgreen Co., for total proceeds of approximately $8.0 million. These two properties were previously deemed held for sale and presented as discontinued operations.

Property Acquisition

In May 2012, the Company completed the final step in its purchase of a property leased to Walgreen Co. in Boulder, Colorado, using part of the proceeds from the sale of its Walgreens in Powder Springs, Georgia, and the Barnes & Noble property in Lakeland, Florida, which was sold in December 2011. The proceeds from the sale of the Asheville property and the land sale have been reserved for reinvestment pursuant to the Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange structure.

At June 30, 2012 the Company owned 24 single-tenant properties with an average remaining lease term of 10.1 years.

CEO Comments on Operating Results

John P. Albright, president and chief executive officer, stated, “We are pleased with our progress for the quarter and through the first six months of 2012. We are particularly encouraged to have completed our first significant land sale in approximately three years, which we hope is an indicator of increased economic activity, and to have repurchased stock, also for the first time in three years.” Mr. Albright further noted, “We remain focused on executing our plan of expanding our portfolio of income-producing properties, selectively recycling our invested capital, and continuing to improve the results of our golf operations, thereby enhancing our cash flow production and, we believe, long-term shareholder value.”
