IMH Financial Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Adjusted Net income $4.4 million or $0.29 per Share

Adjusted EBITDA of $7.5 million, up 70% over 2014

Aug 19, 2015, 14:47 ET from IMH Financial Corporation

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- IMH Financial Corporation ("IMH" or "the Company") announced today that it filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 13, 2015. Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $7.5 million or $0.49 per basic common share and $0.27 per diluted common share, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $4.4 million or $0.28 per common share for the same period in 2014.

"The Company had a strong second quarter," said Lawrence Bain, CEO and Chairman of IMH, "exceeding both budget and prior year results. While our hotel assets continue to contribute the bulk of our operating revenues, we expect that the extensive renovation project at our Sedona properties, which we scheduled to undertake during the third quarter -- typically the slowest season for those hotels -- will adversely affect our revenues in that quarter. The Company's second quarter results also reflect our successful efforts to achieve significant recoveries from various loan guarantors.  We are very pleased to recognize the fruits of our enforcement and recovery efforts and are working to maximize the monetization of these assets.  Finally, we have made substantial progress in the development of our multifamily project in Minnesota and are on track to complete construction and begin leasing by the middle of the third quarter of 2015."

Following are financial and operational highlights for the second quarter:

Second Quarter Highlights

  • For the three months ended June 30, 2015, top line revenue (the sum of operating property revenue, investment and other income, and mortgage loan income) increased by 5.4%, to $9.4 million. The increase is due primarily to improved performance at the Company's operating hotels resulting from aggressive marketing efforts, offset by reductions in 1) mortgage income due to mortgage interest recorded on a modified loan in 2014 and 2) investment income recognized in 2014 related to our FX3 investment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $7.5 million, a $3.1 million increase, or 69.8%, over Adjusted EBITDA for the same period in 2014. Basic Adjusted EBITDA per common share was $0.49 for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $0.28 for the same period in 2014. Diluted adjusted EBITDA per common share was $0.27 per common share for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $0.19 for the same period in 2014. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA was primarily attributable to the recoveries recorded in the second quarter of 2015 arising from our guarantor enforcement and collection efforts, coupled with reduced interest expense and depreciation recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2015.
  • Adjusted net earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $4.4 million compared to adjusted net loss of $1.3 million for the same period in 2014. Basic adjusted net earnings per common share was $0.29 for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to adjusted net loss per common share of $0.08 for the same period in 2014. Diluted adjusted net earnings per common share was $0.16 for the three months ended June 30, 2015 compared to adjusted net loss per common share of $0.08 for the same period in 2014.
  • Net income attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $3.5 million compared to a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1.5 million for the same period in 2014. Basic net income per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.23 compared to net loss per common share $0.09 for the three months ended June 30, 2014. Diluted net income per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was $0.13 compared to net loss per common share $0.09 for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The increases in net income attributable to common shareholders and in adjusted net earnings is primarily attributed to recoveries recorded during the period, coupled with reduced operating expenses, and offset by dividends the Company was contractually obligated to pay to holders of our preferred stock during the quarter ended June 30, 2015.
  • The Company recorded recoveries totaling $9.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2015 relating to our award of certain real estate and equity interests resulting from our enforcement efforts as described above while no recoveries were recorded in the corresponding period in 2014.
  • Operating expenses were $13.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2015, a reduction of $3.4 million, or 19.9% improvement, over the same period in 2014. Our lower operating expenses in the quarter were primarily attributed to reductions in our interest expense and professional fees. Interest expense was $2.4 million during the three months ended June 30, 2015, 48.8% less than our interest expense in the corresponding quarter in 2014, and we reduced our professional fees by $1.7 million or 61.8%, from the corresponding quarter in 2014.
  • The Company recorded net losses from the disposal of assets of $0.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2015, as compared to net gains from the disposal of assets of $6.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The quarter's net loss on disposal recorded related to the sale of 15 assets which, net of related selling costs, sold slightly below their collective carrying values and provided cash proceeds of $11.0 million. The net gain on disposal recorded during the three months ended June 30, 2014 arose from the sale of 10 assets which, net of related selling costs, provided cash proceeds of $24.5 million.
  • Subsequent to June 30, 2015, we completed the sale of an REO asset for $16.0 million (net of selling costs), of which we financed $11.0 million in the form of a seller carry-back note.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings (loss) are considered "non-GAAP financial measures" under SEC guidelines. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide a more complete understanding of ongoing operations and enhance comparability of current results to prior periods. The Company also believes that providing investors with this non-GAAP financial information, in addition to the related GAAP measures, gives investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. However, because under SEC guidelines these non-GAAP financial measures are considered an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and involves differences from net earnings (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, it should be considered along with, and not as an alternative to, the Company's net loss computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance.

A reconciliation of the Company's net loss attributable to common shareholders, as reported, to adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted EBITDA for the current and prior year's quarter follows (in thousands except per share data):

Note 1:

For purposes of computing basic and diluted per share amounts, the amount of basic shares is used in the denominator in all instances where losses are reported for Net Income (Loss), Adjusted Net Earnings (Loss) and Adjusted EBITDA, as the inclusion of potentially dilutive securities would be anti-dilutive.
