IMH Financial Corporation Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended December 31, 2014

IMH Financial Corporation reported consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported adjusted EBITDA of $1.5 million, or $0.10 per common share, excluding certain one-time and non-cash charges, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $0.9 million, or $0.05 per common share, for the same period in 2013. Top line revenue decreased by 17.6%, to $7.9 million as compared to $9.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2013 due to higher investment and other income for the three months ended December 31, 2013 primarily resulting from the gain on disposal of one of the company's investments in the fourth quarter of 2013. Adjusted net loss was $3.1 million compared to a $5.4 million loss for the same period in 2013, excluding additional debt termination charges of $0.7 million during the quarter. Adjusted net loss per common share was $0.21 and $0.32 for the same period in 2013. Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $11.6 million compared to a $10.7 million loss attributable to common shareholders for the same period in 2013. Net loss per common share was $0.76 compared to $0.64 for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The net loss is primarily due to expenses in excess of revenues for the quarter, coupled with impairment charges and loss on disposal of assets during the quarter ended December 31, 2014. For the year, the company reported annual adjusted EBITDA of $13.7 million or $0.86 per common share, excluding certain one-time and non-cash charges, for 2014, compared to adjusted EBITDA loss of $2.8 million, or $0.17 per common share, for the same period in 2013. Top line revenue was $31.4 million compared to $23.3 million, an increase of 34.7%, or $8.1 million. The increase in revenues is primarily attributed to a full year of hotel operations in 2014 compared to seven months of operations in 2013. Adjusted net loss was $6.8 million compared to a net loss of $25.1 million for the same period in 2013, excluding a one-time debt termination charge of $22.4 million, certain one-time charges of $1.5 million for severance and related payments to its former CEO and non-recurring impairment and provision charges of $6.5 million in 2014, compared to one-time settlement charges of $6.1 million and net non-recurring impairment charges and non-cash recoveries of $5.7 million in 2013. Adjusted net loss per common share was $0.43 compared to $1.48 for the same period in 2013. The reduction in adjusted net loss for 2014 was primarily due to gains realized from the disposal of assets in 2014. Net loss attributable to common shareholders for the year ended December 31, 2014 was $39.5 million, a 50.6% increase from the net loss of $26.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2013. Net loss per common share was $2.49 compared to $1.55 for the same period in 2013. The net loss was primarily driven by high interest costs and one-time charges. Loss before income taxes was $37.57 million compared to $26.21 million a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $18.09 million compared to $27.37 million a year ago.
