Research Report Real estate lender iStar Financial continues to post losses due to debt servicing last year, with a net loss of $87.4 million or $1.04 per share, compared to a loss of $35.2 million or 43 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue came in at $93.7 million, but had to pay out $83.5 million in interest payments on its debt as it hurts on the high rates on the money it borrows, but cannot charge the rates to the money it lends. However, the company has been taking steps to address this issue, including the re-pricing of its $1.82 billion senior secured credit facility due October 2017 and the sale of assets. Earlier this year, iStar received $220 million for its 24 percent stake in LNR Property LLC, a distressed commercial debt manager. With these, management believes they can start investing more this year with a stronger balance sheet and bolstered liquidity.
