FRP HOLDINGS, INC. (NASDAQ: FRPH) ANNOUNCES RESULTS FOR THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2017.
FRP Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ-FRPH) Jacksonville, Florida; November 1, 2017
Third Quarter Consolidated Results of Operations.
Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $25,391,000 or $2.52 per share versus $1,957,000 or $.20 per share in the same period last year. The majority of this uptick in income is the result of a gain on remeasurement of investment of $60.2 million in its Dock 79 real estate partnership, which is included in income from continuing operations before income taxes. As a result of the stabilization of Dock 79, the Company is now deemed for accounting purposes to have control of the partnership without the transfer of any consideration. As such the non-taxable gain on remeasurement was calculated based on the difference between the carrying value and the fair value of all the assets and liabilities of the partnership. The gain included $4,727,000 related to the value of leases in place resulting in amortization expense of $1,326,000 for the quarter. The lease value is amortized over the life of the leases, 89% of that value is scheduled to be expensed by June 30, 2018. The gain included $34 million related to the building and improvements which will result in additional deprecation of $220,000 quarterly. The total gain related depreciation and amortization was $1,546,000 which explains the majority of the $1,480,000 reduction in operating profit compared to the same quarter last year. Total revenues were $12,054,000, up 23.3%, versus the same period last year, primarily because of the addition of rental revenues from Dock 79.
Third Quarter Segment Operating Results.
Asset Management Segment:
Total revenues in this segment were $7,578,000, up $255,000 or 3.5%, over the same period last year. Net Operating Income (NOI) in this segment for the third quarter declined slightly to $5,614,000, compared to $5,627,000 in the same period last year. Several factors caused revenue to increase while NOI remained stable. Revenues inclusive of reimbursables and unrealized rents have increased over the same period last year as a result of new buildings and increased occupancy. However, the uptick in reimbursable expenses increased revenue without increasing NOI, and the non-reimbursable expenses did nothing for revenue and adversely affected NOI. Additionally, cash-based NOI as calculated by the Company excludes unrealized rents which are the result of “straight-lining” rental revenue over the life of a lease, i.e. averaging the total rent of the lease over the term. Thus, though revenue as calculated by GAAP may be up because of new leases, cash-based NOI is not as positively affected because the actual rent paid by the tenant in the beginning of a lease is less than the GAAP-based straight-lined rent. We ended the third quarter with total occupied square feet of 3,637,236 versus 3,486,681 at the end of the same period last year, an increase of 4.3% or 150,555 square feet. Our overall occupancy rate was 91.3%.
