Income Property Portfolio Update Property Acquisitions On April 22, 2014, the Company acquired a 131,644 square-foot building situated on 15.48 acres leased to Lowe’s Home Improvement, an S&P A- credit, in Katy, Texas, a suburb of Houston. The lease has approximately 13 years remaining on an initial term of 30 years. The total purchase price was approximately $14.7 million. This is the Company’s first acquisition in Texas in a market with strong demographics and job growth. Self-Developed Properties Construction of the Company’s third self-developed flex-office property, Williamson Business Park in Daytona Beach, Florida, is expected to be completed early in the second quarter of 2014. The Company executed a 10-year lease for 7,700 square feet of the two-building 31,000 square-foot property which will commence in May 2014. The Company signed a 3-year lease for 1,905 square feet in the Concierge Office Building in Daytona Beach, Florida for 3 years, bringing the building’s total occupancy to approximately 83% leased. Commercial Mortgage Loan Update In August 2013, the Company acquired a $19.6 million performing mortgage loan, with an interest rate of one-month LIBOR plus 450 basis points, collateralized by an upper upscale hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, for approximately $17.5 million, a discount of approximately $2.1 million. On January 6, 2014, the outstanding principal of $19.5 million was paid in full. The Company earned approximately $2.6 million during the five months of its investment, $844,000 of which was recognized during the first quarter of 2014. On January 31, 2014, the Company acquired a $5.0 million mezzanine loan secured by the borrower’s equity interest in an upper upscale hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, that was previously subject to the Company’s first commercial mortgage loan investment. The Company purchased the performing loan at par. The loan matures in February 2019 and bears a fixed interest rate of 12% per annum. The loan generated $100,000 of interest income during the first quarter of 2014. Land Update During the first quarter of 2014, the Company sold approximately 3.1 acres to Halifax Humane Society, Inc. for $391,500, or approximately $128,000 per acre, for a gain of approximately $347,000. This parcel is located on LPGA Boulevard, just west of I-95 in Daytona Beach, Florida, and is adjacent to an existing property owned by Halifax Humane Society, Inc. Financial Results Revenue Total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 increased 46% to approximately $7.1 million, compared to approximately $4.9 million during the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily the result of an increase of approximately $450,000, or 15%, in revenue generated by our income properties, an increase of approximately $938,000, or 277%, in revenue from our real estate operations, and approximately $944,000 in revenue from our investment in commercial mortgage loans (including interest earned and the accretion of a purchase discount), which we did not have in 2013. Revenue from our real estate operations benefited from a land sale of approximately 3.1 acres, which generated revenue of $391,500, and an increase of approximately $586,000 from our subsurface lease that was amended in September 2013. We had no land sales in the same period in 2013. Net Income (Loss) Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was approximately $1.5 million, compared to approximately $337,000 in the same period in 2013. Our results in the first quarter of 2014 benefited from approximately $2.2 million, or 46%, in increased revenues and a decrease in operating expenses of approximately $47,000, or 1%. Our general and administrative costs decreased 14%, or approximately $243,000, in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013, due primarily to a decrease in stock compensation costs of approximately $153,000 and a one-time separation payment of approximately $103,000 in the first quarter of 2013. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, was $0.26 per share, compared to $0.06 per share during the same period in 2013, an increase of $0.20 per share or 333%. CEO and CFO Comments on Operating Results Mark E. Patten, senior vice president and chief financial officer, stated, “We are pleased with our operating results and the generation of substantive cash flows reflecting the full benefit of the growth in our income property portfolio, the income from our investment in commercial mortgage loans, and a land transaction we closed in February.” Mr. Patten continued, “We are also pleased that we have continued to achieve meaningful improvements in lowering our general and administrative expenses.” John P. Albright, president and chief executive officer, stated, “We were delighted to have been able to repurchase almost $1 million of our common shares at favorable values especially in light of our successes with our first commercial loan investment, the litigation success on recapturing approximately 600 acres of previously entitled residential land, and the completion of another land sale in the quarter.” Mr. Albright also noted, “The local market continues to show strength and the growing interest in our land holdings is directly correlated to the improved market conditions.” About Consolidated-Tomoka Land Co.
