Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE: TCI), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The reported results are directly related to the strategic initiative we embraced at the onset of the year to grow our multi-family apartment base through Abode Properties, our wholly owned subsidiary.

The growth in revenue and corresponding improvement in Net Operating Income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 demonstrates the viability of our business strategy. Management will continue its plan for growth from its operating properties and expects to reinvest in areas that will complement this growth; further, management will maintain strong attention to all details of its operations including appropriate expense controls.

During the nine months ended June 30, 2017 a subsidiary of the Company sold bonds on the Tel Aviv, Israel stock exchange. The bonds will over time be repaid in Israeli shekels; however, upon sale the cash received was converted into approximately $113 million US dollars. The cash has been and will be used to pay off more expensive debt, purchase existing assets, and develop new multifamily housing projects. The company believes that this new source of cash will have a substantial positive impact on the ability of the company to grow as well as pay off relative expensive shorter term debt that will more than offset the additional net interest expense.

The bonds will be repaid in Israeli shekels as the bonds mature at a rate of 20% each year from 2019 through 2023. Until such actual payments are made, there will not be any significant need to convert US dollars to Israeli shekels. The Company records unrealized gains or losses each quarter based upon the relative exchange values of the US dollar and the Israeli shekel; however, no gain or loss will be realized until a conversion from US dollars to Israeli shekels actually occurs in the future. The recorded unrealized gain or loss is reflected as a separate line item to highlight the fact that it is a non-cash transaction until such time as actual payment of principal and interest on the bonds is made.

For the three months ended September 30, 2017, we reported a net income applicable to common shares of $6.9 million or $0.79 per diluted share, compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $4.8 million or $0.55 per diluted income per share for the same period ended 2016. This is directly related to the increased borrowing and we remain highly certain that dramatic additions to the number of apartments within the portfolio during this strategic growth period will ultimately enhance shareholder values, even beyond the recent improvements we have experienced since we announced this approach in Q4 2016.

The reported financial results are as follows.

Revenues

Rental and other property revenues were $31.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. This represents an increase of $1.7 million compared to the prior period revenues of $29.8 million. The change by segment is an increase of $0.8 million in each of the apartment and commercial portfolios and an increase of $0.1 million in the land portfolio. We purchased three and sold one multifamily property over the prior year which resulted in a net increase of 103 units and was the primary reason for the increase in revenues for our apartment portfolio.

Expense

Property operating expenses were $15.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. This represents a decrease of $0.2 million compared to the prior period operating expenses of $15.4 million. The change by segment was decreases of $0.2 million and $0.1 million in the commercial and land portfolios, respectively, partially offset by an increase of $0.1 million in the other portfolio.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $6.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, an increase of $0.3 million compared to the prior period expense of $6.0 million. The increase is primarily attributable to the acquired apartment properties.

Other income (expense)

Mortgage and loan interest expense was $14.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. This represents an increase of $0.7 million compared to the prior period expense of $13.6 million. Interest expense for our corporate loans increased $1.8 million, primarily due to interest expense related to the Israeli Series A Bonds payable of $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2017, partially offset by a decrease of $0.6 million in interest expense as a result of a $17.8 million pay down on a corporate loan at the end of the second quarter of 2017. We also had an increase of $0.2 million in our commercial portfolio, due to securing additional debt obligation with the refinancing of one of our commercial loans. These increases were partially offset by a decrease of $1.3 million in interest expense on our apartment portfolio, due to a loan prepayment penalty paid in the third quarter of 2016 for refinancing of a loan.

A subsidiary of the Company issued $113 million in bonds during 2017 that will be repaid in Israeli shekels as the bonds mature. During the three months ended September 30, 2017, the Company recorded an unrealized foreign currency transaction gain of $1.9 million based upon the relative exchange values of the US dollar and the Israeli shekel as applied to the bond principal and accrued interest at quarter-end. We did not have any unrealized foreign currency transaction gain or loss during the three months ended September 30, 2016.

Gain on sale of income-producing properties was $9.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017, due to recognition of deferred gain from property sales of two apartment communities in a prior year. There were no sales of income-producing properties during the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016.

Gain on land sales was $0.5 million during the three months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2016. In the current period, we sold 3.3 acres of land for a total sales price of $0.9 million and recorded a gain of $0.5 million. During the same period of 2016, we sold 4.8 acres of land for a sales price of $0.8 million and recorded a gain of $0.6 million.
