William H. Armstrong III, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stratus, stated, "Stratus continued to execute its five-year plan during the third quarter, highlighted by the acquisition of our former partner's interest in the joint venture that owns the W Austin Hotel and Residences. Completion of this transaction, which was achieved in connection with the long-term refinancing of the project on favorable terms together with an expansion of our existing credit facility, is expected to simplify operations and generate consistent cash flows going forward. Additionally, completion of our sales of the Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter commercial projects during the quarter generated significant cash and benefited our financial results. Construction and pre-leasing activity at the HEB-anchored The Oaks at Lakeway retail project and Santal (formerly Tecoma) multi-family project are proceeding as planned, and lot sales activity at our Meridian and Barton Creek developments reflect what we believe continues to be an exciting Austin-area market."

Five-Year Plan . Stratus' board of directors approved a five-year plan to create value for stockholders by methodically developing certain existing assets and actively marketing other assets for possible sale at appropriate values. Under the plan, any future new projects will be complementary to existing operations and will be projected to be developed and sold within a five-year time frame.

Consistent with the five-year plan, on July 2, 2015, Stratus completed the sales of its Austin-area Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter commercial properties, both located in the Circle C community, for $32.5 million and $12.5 million, respectively. Stratus is also in the process of engaging or considering the engagement of advisers to market other developed and undeveloped properties.

Additionally, on September 28, 2015, Stratus completed the purchase of Canyon-Johnson's approximate 58 percent joint venture interest in the Block 21 Joint Venture for approximately $62 million. Stratus funded the acquisition with (1) $32.3 million from its BoA Loan, (2) a $20.0 million term loan under its credit facility with Comerica Bank and (3) approximately $9.7 million in cash.

Stratus is currently developing The Oaks at Lakeway and Santal multi-family projects. The Oaks at Lakeway is a HEB Grocery Company, L.P. (HEB) anchored retail project planned for 245,022 square feet of commercial space. Leases for 68 percent of the space, including the HEB lease, have been executed and leasing for the remaining space is underway. The project is currently under construction, and the HEB store opened in October 2015. The Santal multi-family project is a garden-style apartment complex consisting of 236 units. Construction commenced in January 2015 and pre-leasing is expected to begin in November 2015. The project is expected to be completed in April 2016.

Stratus believes that the Austin and surrounding sub-markets continue to be desirable. Many of Stratus' developments are in locations where development approvals have historically been subject to regulatory constraints, which has made it difficult to obtain entitlements. Stratus' Austin assets, which are located in desirable areas with significant regulatory constraints, are highly entitled and, as a result, Stratus believes that through strategic planning and development, it can maximize and fully realize their value. These development plans require significant additional capital, and may be pursued through joint ventures or other means. In addition, the five-year plan is subject to continued review by Stratus' board of directors and may change as a result of market conditions or other factors deemed relevant by the board.

Debt Refinancings . In connection with its acquisition of Canyon-Johnson's interest in the Block 21 Joint Venture, on September 28, 2015, Stratus amended its BoA Loan. Pursuant to the BoA Loan amendment, among other revisions, (1) the $100.0 million non-recourse term loan previously made available to the Block 21 Joint Venture was increased to $130.0 million, (2) the interest rate was reduced to the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) daily floating rate plus 2.35 percent and (3) the maturity date was extended from September 29, 2016, to September 28, 2020. In addition, Canyon-Johnson was released as a guarantor. Accordingly, certain obligations of the Block 21 Joint Venture, including environmental indemnification and other customary carve-out obligations, are guaranteed by Stratus. All other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

On August 21, 2015, Stratus amended its $48.0 million credit facility with Comerica (the Comerica credit facility), that was scheduled to mature on August 31, 2015. The amendment increases the borrowing capacity under the Comerica credit facility to $72.5 million, comprised of a $45.0 million revolving line of credit, a $7.5 million tranche for letters of credit and a $20.0 million term loan. The interest rate applicable to amounts borrowed under the Comerica credit facility is LIBOR plus 4.0 percent, with a minimum interest rate of 6.0 percent. The Comerica credit facility matures on August 31, 2017, however, to the extent amounts are outstanding under the $20.0 million term loan, a principal payment of $8.0 million is required on or before December 31, 2015, with quarterly principal payments of $1.75 million due thereafter. The Comerica credit facility is secured by substantially all of Stratus' assets except for properties that are encumbered by separate loan financing.The Comerica credit facility contains customary financial covenants including a requirement that Stratus maintain a minimum total stockholders' equity balance of $110.0 million. As of September 30, 2015, Stratus had $58.1 million outstanding under the Comerica credit facility, which was comprised of $38.1 million under the revolving line of credit and $20.0 million under the term loan.

Circle C Property Sales . On July 2, 2015, Stratus completed the sales of its Austin-area Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter commercial properties, both located in the Circle C community, to Whitestone REIT. Stratus successfully entitled, developed and fully leased both projects. The Parkside Village commercial project, which was owned in a joint venture with LCHM Holdings, LLC, consisted of 90,184 leasable square feet and was sold for $32.5 million. The 5700 Slaughter commercial project, which was wholly owned by Stratus, consists of 25,698 leasable square feet and was sold for $12.5 million. Stratus used the proceeds from these transactions to repay the $26 million outstanding under both the Parkside Village construction loan with Comerica Bank and the term loan with United Heritage Credit Union, with the remainder being held in escrow while Stratus assessed potential tax free like-kind exchange transactions. In September 2015, Stratus used $2.6 million of the escrow funds to purchase an undeveloped tract of land for the West Killeen Market project and withdrew $12.1 million to fund distributions to Stratus and LCHM Holdings, of $9.4 million and $3.2 million respectively. The remaining proceeds are expected to be distributed to Stratus in fourth-quarter 2015. After debt repayments and closing costs, cash proceeds from these transactions approximated $17 million, and Stratus recorded a pre-tax gain in third-quarter 2015 of $21 million, of which the noncontrolling interest share was $4 million.

The decrease in developed property sales revenues in the 2015 periods primarily resulted from fewer sales of higher priced condominium units at the W Austin Residences and fewer lot sales at Verano Drive and Amarra Drive Phase II as inventories have declined, partly offset by increased lot sales at Meridian and Amarra Drive Phase III, which was completed in first-quarter 2015. As of October 30, 2015, 32 Meridian lots, 14 Amarra Drive Phase II lots and 56 Amarra Drive Phase III lots remain available for sale.

Revenue from the Hotel segment totaled $8.6 million for third-quarter 2015 and $31.4 million for the first nine months of 2015, compared with $9.8 million for third-quarter 2014 and $31.4 million for the first nine months of 2014. Hotel revenue reflects the results of operations for the W Austin Hotel, and primarily includes revenue from room reservations and food and beverage sales. Lower Hotel revenues for third-quarter 2015, compared with third-quarter 2014, primarily reflect lower food and beverage sales and room revenue. RevPAR at the W Austin Hotel, which is calculated by dividing total room revenue by total rooms available, averaged $241 during third-quarter 2015 and $282 for the first nine months of 2015, compared with $264 during third-quarter 2014 and $286 for the first nine months of 2014. The 251-room hotel, which Stratus believes sets the standard for contemporary luxury in downtown Austin, is managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

Revenue from the Entertainment segment totaled $4.2 million for third-quarter 2015 and $13.6 million for the first nine months of 2015, compared with $3.7 million for third-quarter 2014 and $12.7 million for the first nine months of 2014. Entertainment revenue primarily reflects the results of operations for ACL Live, including ticket sales, revenue from private events, sponsorships, personal seat license sales and suite sales, and sales of concessions and merchandise. Entertainment revenue also reflects revenues associated with outside events hosted at venues other than ACL Live and production of recorded content for artists performing at ACL Live, as well as the results of the joint venture with Pedernales Entertainment relating to Stageside Productions. Revenues from the Entertainment segment will vary from period to period as a result of factors such as the price of tickets and number of tickets sold, as well as the number and type of events. Austin City Limits Live at the Moody Theater (ACL Live) hosted 49 events during third-quarter 2015, compared with 46 events during third-quarter 2014, and hosted 152 events during the first nine months of 2015, compared with 142 events during the first nine months of 2014. ACL Live currently has events booked through October 2016. The increase in entertainment revenue for the 2015 periods primarily resulted from increases in the number of events hosted and ticket sales.

Rental revenue from the Commercial Leasing segment totaled $0.9 million for third-quarter 2015 and $4.7 million for the first nine months of 2015, compared with $1.8 million for third-quarter 2014 and $5.3 million for the first nine months of 2014. Rental revenue primarily reflects revenue from the office and retail space at the W Austin Hotel & Residences project, Barton Creek Village, and Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter, which are both in the Circle C community. As discussed above, on July 2, 2015, we completed the sales of Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter for $45.0 million. Lower rental revenues in the 2015 periods primarily reflects the sales of the Parkside Village and 5700 Slaughter commercial properties.

Stratus is a diversified real estate company engaged primarily in the acquisition, entitlement, development, management, operation and sale of commercial, hotel, entertainment, and multi- and single-family residential real estate properties, primarily located in the Austin area, but including projects in certain other select markets in Texas.
