Thomas Properties Group, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

Share:
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Thomas Properties Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPGI) reported today the results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

The results of operations presented in this release include TPGI's results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. The consolidated net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $4.1 million or $0.09 per share compared to consolidated net income of $2.1 million or $0.06 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The consolidated net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $12.0 million or $0.30 per share compared to consolidated net loss of $4.2 million or $0.11 per share for nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in the consolidated net loss is primarily due to lower tenant reimbursement revenues and a decrease in investment advisory fees. Also contributing to the increase in net loss is a decrease in condominium unit sales at Murano, as we closed on the sale of nine condominium units during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to twelve units during the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

After tax cash flow (“ATCF”) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $1.3 million or $0.03 per share compared to ATCF of $5.6 million or $0.15 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2011. After tax cash flow for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $3.4 million or $0.08 per share compared to after tax cash flow of $9.3 million or $0.25 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in ATCF per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was primarily the result of the decreased revenues resulting from fewer Murano condominium sales and the increased number of shares of our common stock outstanding resulting from the issuance of common stock in 2012. The Company defines ATCF (a non-GAAP financial measure) as net income (loss) excluding the following items: noncontrolling interests, deferred income taxes, non-cash charges for depreciation and amortization and asset impairment, amortization of loan costs, non-cash compensation expense, straight-line rent adjustments, adjustments to reflect the fair market value of rent, and gain from extinguishment of debt. ATCF is further described in note (a) and reconciled to net income (loss) in the financial statements below.

“Our purchase of the Austin portfolio along with CalSTRS and Madison International Realty was the focus and highlight of the third quarter,” said James Thomas, Chairman, President and CEO of Thomas Properties Group, Inc. “In keeping with our strategic plan, we, through our investment with Madison, control 50% of the portfolio. By repaying short term floating rate debt, we deleveraged the portfolio and positioned it to take advantage of improving market conditions in Austin. We continue to focus on converting a substantial part of our land holdings into cash-flowing properties as we move the Company toward REIT status.”

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements made in this press release or during the quarterly earnings conference call that are not historical may contain forward-looking statements. Although TPGI believes the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, these statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from TPGI's expectations include actual and perceived trends in various national and economic conditions that affect global and regional markets for commercial real estate services (including interest rates), the availability of debt and equity investors to finance commercial real estate transactions, our ability to enter into or renew leases at favorable rates, which can be impacted by the financial condition of our tenants, risks associated with the success of our development and property redevelopment projects, general volatility in the securities and credit markets, and the impact of tax laws affecting real estate. For a discussion of some of the factors that may cause our results to differ from management's expectations, see the information under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and our subsequent Form 10-Q quarterly reports, each of which is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. TPGI disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

a.    

ATCF is a non-GAAP financial measure and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. We define ATCF as net income (loss) excluding the following items: i) deferred income tax expense (benefit), ii) noncontrolling interests, iii) non-cash charges for depreciation and amortization and asset impairment, iv) amortization of loan costs, v) non-cash compensation expense, vi) the adjustment to recognize rental revenues using the straight-line method, vii) the adjustment to rental revenue to reflect the fair market value of rents, and viii) gain on extinguishment of debt. Management utilizes ATCF data in assessing performance of our business operations in period-to-period comparisons and for financial planning purposes. ATCF should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of our performance. ATCF should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs. ATCF also should not be used as a supplement to or substitute for cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP).

 
b. Based on an interest in our operating partnership of 78.56% and 76.43% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, and 74.70% and 74.72% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively.
