First Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $760,563, or $0.07 per diluted common share
  • Book value attributable to common stockholders of $16.69 per common share at March 31, 2014 as compared to $16.66 per common share at December 31, 2013
  • Declared quarterly dividends of $0.05 per share of common stock
  • FFO of $835,318, or $0.08 per diluted common share (see Non-GAAP Financial Measures)

Recent Operational Highlights

  • Funded seven loans during the quarter, including  six new loans totaling $8,433,000 and the rewrite of one loan for $616,000
  • Secured a revolving line of credit of up to $20,000,000 with California Bank & Trust to provide additional loan funding capacity and operating liquidity
  • Completed the purchase of $6.0 million in additional parcels of land that will allow greater development flexibility for the Chateau at South Lake Tahoe and enhance its marketability
  • Secured additional capital resources to accelerate mortgage lending activities through a $20,000,000 revolving line of credit with Opus Bank

"We made significant progress towards our strategic objectives in the first quarter, increasing our commercial lending activities and successfully securing lines of credit, providing us with up to $40 million in additional liquidity," said William Owens, Chairman and CEO. "We are seeing positive trends in the commercial real estate bridge lending market and, while still in the early stages, we are optimistic that we will continue to expand our loan portfolio in 2014."

"As we look to prepare certain properties in our portfolio for sale next year, we have made progress with scheduled development programs, including the Chateau at South Lake Tahoe project.  Most recently we completed the $6.0 million purchase of additional parcels of land adjacent to the land already owned by the Company, providing us with the flexibility to make minor project reconfigurations resulting in greater development opportunities, which should enhance the marketability of the property.  We are also in the process of working to obtain construction financing that would allow us to move ahead with the planned renovation of the 160 vacant units in the North Building of the Treasures on the Bay property in Miami, Florida."

"We remain committed to the continued execution of our operating strategy and are excited by the opportunities ahead," concluded Mr. Owens.

Summary of First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

The Company reported net income attributable to common stockholders of $760,563, or $0.07 per basic and diluted common share, for the three months ended March 31, 2014 as compared to a net income of $1,429,932 or $0.13 per basic and diluted common share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in gains on loan foreclosures, resulting in a gain of only $257,000 compared to $952,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, and a recorded provision for loan losses of approximately $127,000, as compared to a reversal of provision for loan losses of approximately $257,000 for the corresponding period in 2013. The decrease was partially offset by an increase in interest income on loans of approximately $250,000, an increase in net income from real estate properties of approximately $110,000, as a result of increased rental rates and/or occupancy and decreased operating expenses on certain of our real estate properties held for investment and the sale of certain operating properties during 2013 which had net losses during the quarter ended March 31, 2013; and an increase in gain on sale of real estate during the quarter ended March 31, 2014 as a result of deferred gain recognized on a property sold at the end of 2012 due to a partial principal repayment received on the carry back loan during the quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Funds from Operations

We utilize supplemental non-GAAP measures of operating performance, including funds from operations ("FFO"), an industry-wide standard measure of REIT operating performance. We believe FFO provides investors with additional information concerning our operating performance and a basis to compare our performance with that of other REITs. We determine FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts ("NAREIT"), as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders (computed in accordance with GAAP), plus depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, impairments of real estate assets and provisions for loan losses, losses from sales of real estate, reduced by gains from sales of real estate and extraordinary items, and after adjustments for unconsolidated ventures.

Our calculation of FFO may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other REITs. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of our operating performance or to cash flows computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of liquidity, nor is it indicative of cash flows from operating and financial activities.

We urge investors to carefully review the GAAP financial information included as part of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and quarterly earnings releases.

The following table reconciles FFO to comparable GAAP financial measures:
