Financial Results

Revenue

Total revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, increased 79%, totaling approximately $6.4 million, compared to approximately $3.6 million in the same period of 2012. The increase of approximately $2.8 million included approximately $1.2 million of additional rent revenue generated by our income property portfolio, an increase of 54%, particularly from our acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2012 and the three quarters in 2013, $1.0 million in revenue from the amendment of our oil exploration lease, approximately $644,000 of income generated by our commercial mortgage loan investment, and approximately $120,000 of increased revenue from our golf operations offset by a reduction in our agriculture and other revenues of approximately $75,000.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, increased 31%, totaling approximately $16.2 million, compared to approximately $12.4 million in the same period in 2012. The increase of approximately $3.8 million included approximately $3.2 million of additional rent revenue generated by our income property portfolio, an increase of 51%, particularly our acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2012 and in the three quarters of 2013, approximately $644,000 of income generated by our commercial mortgage loan investment, and approximately $315,000 of increased revenue from our golf operations, a 9% increase, offset by a reduction in our real estate operations of approximately $407,000. Our results in the nine months ended September 30, 2012, included $618,000 of revenue from the sale of 16.6 acres of land and approximately $730,000 recognized in connection with the resolution of the Dunn Avenue extension obligation.

Net Income (Loss)

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, was approximately $1.2 million, compared to a net loss of approximately $557,000 in the same period of 2012, an increase of $1.8 million or 323%. Contributing to the increase in net income of approximately $1.8 million was the after tax results of the aforementioned increases in our revenues of $2.8 million, or 79%, net of the increase in direct costs of those revenues of approximately $271,000, offset by increases in our depreciation and amortization of approximately $229,000, attributable to our larger income property portfolio, and increased interest expense of approximately $357,000. Our increased net income also benefited from lower general and administrative expenses, which decreased by approximately $1.1 million with such decrease reflecting a decrease in our stock compensation costs of approximately $195,000 and decreased legal expenses of approximately $104,000 while the September 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses were also impacted by a charge taken in the third quarter of 2012 of approximately $612,000 pertaining to a legal reserve and approximately $145,000 related to a one-time payment to a retiring senior executive. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, was $0.22 per share, compared to a $0.10 per share loss during the same period in 2012. The impact on net income from the $1.0 million in revenue from the payment related to the amendment of the Company’s oil exploration lease was $0.11 per share.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was approximately $1.8 million, compared to net income of approximately $537,000 in the same period of 2012, an increase of approximately $1.3 million or 241%. Contributing to the increase in net income of approximately $1.3 million was the after tax results of the aforementioned increases in our revenues of $3.8 million, or 31%, net of the increase in direct costs of those revenues of approximately $365,000 offset by increases in our depreciation and amortization of approximately $638,000, attributable to our larger income property portfolio, and increased interest expense of approximately $841,000 and a $616,000 impairment charge taken on certain land of which a portion was previously under contract. Our increased net income also benefited from lower general and administrative expenses, which decreased by approximately $849,000 with such decrease primarily due to the September 30, 2012, general and administrative expenses including the impact of a charge taken in the third quarter of 2012 of approximately $612,000 pertaining to a legal reserve and approximately $145,000 related to a one-time payment to a retiring senior executive. In addition, the net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, benefited from the aforementioned land transaction and the resolution of the Dunn Avenue extension obligation, an after tax impact of $0.14 per share, offset by an impairment loss totaling approximately $616,000, an after tax impact of $0.07 per share. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, was $0.32 per share, compared to $0.09 per share during the same period in 2012.

Income Property Portfolio Update

On July 25, 2013, the Company acquired a 16,280-square-foot building leased to a subsidiary of Rite Aid Corp. in Renton, Washington, a suburb of Seattle. The total purchase price was approximately $6.6 million. On the acquisition date, the remaining term of the lease was 13 years, with lease escalations during the six 5-year renewal option periods.

On September 13, 2013, the Company acquired a 25,600-square-foot building leased to Big Lots in Germantown, Maryland. The total purchase price was approximately $5.0 million. On the acquisition date, the remaining term of the lease was approximately 10.4 years, with three 5-year renewal option periods.

On October 14, 2013, the Company executed a purchase and sale agreement to sell its interest in the 15,120-square-foot building under lease to Walgreens, located in Orlando, Florida. As a result, this property’s operating results were included in discontinued operations for each of the three and nine month periods ending September 30, 2013, and 2012, respectively.

Land Update

We expect to close on the transaction we have with a convenience store operator for the 3.4-acre pad site at the southeast corner of LPGA and Williamson Boulevards in the fourth quarter of 2013.

We also expect to close on a two-acre pad site along LPGA Boulevard, on the east side of Interstate 95, late in the fourth quarter.

During the quarter, the 3.21-acre site on the west side of Interstate 95 that was under contract in the second quarter was terminated by the buyer.

CEO and CFO Comments on Operating Results

Mark E. Patten, senior vice president and chief financial officer, stated, “We are pleased with the results of our operating segments, especially the cash flow generated in our real estate operations from the amendment to our oil exploration lease with Kerogen.” Mr. Patten continued, “In addition, our golf operations continue to trend positively over the prior year as did our general and administrative expenses.” Mr. Patten further noted, “Considering our active investment levels in the third quarter, we ended the quarter with continued modest leverage and ample liquidity under our credit facility.”

John P. Albright, president and chief executive officer, stated, “Our investments in the quarter totaling approximately $29.3 million further strengthen the foundation of our income producing investment portfolio which are starting to produce attractive cash flows, and are also reflected in our best earnings performance in approximately five years.” Mr. Albright continued, “We are particularly pleased to have achieved these results without the benefit of income from land sales, although we hope to close two land transactions in the fourth quarter of this year.”
