JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FRP Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ-FRPH) –

First Quarter Consolidated Results of Operations

Net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $1,618,000 or $.15 per share versus $1,898,000 or $.19 per share in the same period last year. The first quarter of 2020 was impacted by the following items:

  • Corporate expense stock compensation of $601,000 compared to $29,000 in the same period last year due the timing of stock grants and a change from grants of stock options previously.
  • Interest income increased $181,000 as we have increased investments in joint ventures offset by lower amounts invested in bonds and lower bond yields.
  • Loss on joint ventures increased $378,000 primarily due to our share of the Bryant Street preferred interest, $118,000 amortization of guarantee liability related to the Bryant Street loan, $183,000 operating loss at the Maren due to pre-leasing efforts, partially offset by interest income generated in our opportunity zone investments prior to the funds being deployed.

Income from discontinued operations for the first quarter of 2019 was $86,000 or $.01 per share.  The first quarter of 2019 included a $119,000 realized gain on the sale of bonds.

First Quarter Segment Operating Results

Asset Management Segment:

Most of the Asset Management Segment was reclassified to discontinued operations leaving two commercial properties as well as Cranberry Run, which we purchased in the first quarter of 2019, and 1801 62nd Street which joined this segment on April 1 of 2019.  Cranberry Run is a five-building industrial park in Harford County, MD totaling 268,010 square feet of industrial/ flex space and at quarter end was 54% leased and occupied, up from 26.1% at year end.  1801 62nd Street is our most recent spec building in Hollander Business Park and is our first warehouse with a 32-foot clear-height ceiling.  We completed construction on this building in 2019 and it is now 100% leased and occupied.  Total revenues in this segment were $652,000, up $11,000 or 1.7%, over the same period last year.  Operating loss was $131,000, down $65,000 from an operating loss of $66,000 in the same quarter last year due to higher allocation of corporate expenses. 

Mining Royalty Lands Segment:

Total revenues in this segment were $2,185,000 versus $2,229,000 in the same period last year.  Total operating profit in this segment was $1,904,000, a decrease of $97,000 versus $2,001,000 in the same period last year.  The primary reason for this decrease is that we are no longer receiving double minimums at our Lake Louisa property, because our tenant, Cemex, received its final permit to begin mining the property in July 2019.   

Development Segment:

The Development segment is responsible for (i) seeking out and identifying opportunistic purchases of income producing warehouse/office buildings, and (ii) developing our non-income producing properties into income production. 

With respect to ongoing projects:

  • PUD entitlements for our 118-acre tract in Hampstead, Maryland, now known as “Hampstead Overlook,” are ongoing.  In February of this year, Hampstead Overlook received Concept Plan approval from the Town of Hampstead for 164 single and 91 town home residential units.  
  • We finished shell building construction in December 2018 on the two office buildings in the first phase of our joint venture with St. John Properties.  Shell building construction of the two retail buildings was completed in January 2019. We are now in the process of leasing these four single-story buildings totaling 100,030 square feet of office and retail space.  At quarter end, Phase I was 44% leased and occupied.
  • We are the principal capital source of a residential development venture in Baltimore County, Maryland known as “Hyde Park.”  We have committed up to $3.5 million in exchange for an interest rate of 10% and a preferred return of 20% after which a “waterfall” determines the split of proceeds from sale.  Entitlements for the development of the property are complete, a homebuilder is under contract to purchase all of the 126 recorded building lots, and settlement is expected in the second quarter of 2020.
  • We are the principal capital source of a residential development venture in Prince George’s County, Maryland known as “Amber Ridge.”  We have committed up to $18.5 million in exchange for an interest rate of 10% and a preferred return of 20% after which a “waterfall” determines the split of proceeds from sale.  Amber Ridge will hold 187 town homes.  We are currently pursuing entitlements and have two homebuilders under contract to purchase all 187 units upon completion of development infrastructure.
  • In April 2018, we began construction on Phase II of our RiverFront on the Anacostia project, now known as “The Maren.”  The 14-story project will have 264 units and 6,450 square feet of ground floor retail.  At the end of the quarter the project was 95% complete, leasing commenced, and the first units of the building are occupied. 
  • In December 2018, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with MidAtlantic Realty Partners (MRP) for the development of the first phase of a multifamily, mixed-use development in northeast Washington, DC known as “Bryant Street.”  The project is comprised of four buildings, with 487 units and 85,930 square feet of retail.  FRP contributed $32 million for common equity and another $23 million for preferred equity to the joint venture.  Construction began in February 2019 and as of the end of the quarter was 53% complete.  The project is currently on time, within budget, and expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2021, with the first of the four buildings delivering in the fourth quarter of 2020.  This project is located in an opportunity zone and has allowed us to defer $14.9 million in taxes associated with last year’s asset sale.
  • In December 2019, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with MRP for the development of a mixed-use project known as “1800 Half Street.”  The development is located in the Buzzard Point area of Washington, DC, less than half a mile downriver from Dock 79 and the Maren.  It lies directly between our two acres on the Anacostia, currently under lease by Vulcan, and Audi Field, the home stadium of the DC United. The 10-story structure will have 344 apartments and 11,246 square feet of ground floor retail.  FRP contributed $37.3 million in common equity.  The project is a qualified opportunity zone investment and will defer just over $10 million in taxes associated with last year’s asset sale.  Construction is anticipated to be begin in second quarter of this year.
  • In December 2019, the company entered into two joint ventures in Greenville, SC with a new partner, Woodfield Development.  Woodfield specializes in Class-A multi-family, mixed use developments primarily in the Carolinas and DC.  Our first joint venture with them is a 200-unit multifamily project known as “Riverside.”  FRP contributed $6.2 million in common equity for a 40% ownership interest.  Construction began this quarter and should be complete in the third quarter of 2021.  The second joint venture in Greenville with Woodfield is a 227-unit multifamily development known as “.408 Jackson.”  It will have 4,700 square feet of retail and is located across the street from Greenville’s minor league baseball stadium.  FRP contributed $9.7 million in common equity for a 40% ownership interest.  Construction is set to begin in the second quarter of 2020 and should be complete in the second quarter of 2022.  Both projects are qualified opportunity investments and will defer a combined $4.3 million in taxes.    

Stabilized Joint Venture Segment:

Dock 79’s average occupancy for the quarter was 93.52%, and at the end of the quarter, Dock 79 was 92.13% leased and 93.44% occupied.  This quarter, 54.24% of expiring leases renewed with an average increase in rent on those renewals of 1.46%.  Net Operating Income this quarter for this segment was $1,812,000, up $182,000 or 11.17% compared to the same quarter last year.  Dock 79 is a joint venture between the Company and MRP, in which FRP Holdings, Inc. is the majority partner with 66% ownership.

In July 2019, the Company completed a like-kind exchange by reinvesting $6,000,000 into a Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) known as CS1031 Hickory Creek DST.  The DST owns a 294-unit garden-style apartment community known as Hickory Creek consisting of 19 three-story apartment buildings containing 273,940 rentable square feet.  Hickory Creek was constructed in 1984 and substantially renovated in 2016 and is located in Henrico County, Virginia.  The Company is 26.649% beneficial owner and receives monthly distributions.  First quarter distributions were $83,000.  The project is a qualified 1031 like-kind exchange investment and will defer $790,000 in taxes associated with the sales of 7030 Dorsey Road and 1502 Quarry Drive

Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic is having an extraordinary impact on the world economy and the markets in which we operate. As an essential business, we have continued to operate throughout the pandemic in accordance with White House guidance and orders issued by state and local authorities. We have implemented social distancing and other measures to protect the health of our employees and customers. While we recognize the importance of social distancing, stay at home and telework measures to protect human health, these measures will adversely affect our tenants, particularly our retail tenants, as long as they remain in place.  We are negotiating with our retail tenants on rent abatements and cash flow adjustments that will adversely affect our NOI. During this period, we will continue to fulfill our duty to operate while managing our business in a prudent fashion.

Summary and Outlook

As important as these first quarter numbers are, what weighs heaviest on the mind of management, and no doubt our shareholders, is the economic fallout of the novel corona virus.  Asset Management has been somewhat insulated.  Industrial in general has responded well to this situation, and though this environment may prolong the time it takes to fill our vacancies, almost all of the tenants we have are paying rent and we have no reason at this time to believe the situation will change.  We have two office tenants who have been affected and will have trouble paying rent, and we are in the process of coming up with a solution that accommodates their difficulties, doesn’t require us to go out and find new tenants, but still compensates us for the lost rent when we emerge from this situation.  The Development Segment was an initial cause for concern when it seemed likely for a time that construction might be halted by the local governments where our projects were located.  Thankfully, that was not the case.  Construction has been allowed to continue in Washington, DC and South Carolina, and so development remains ongoing at Bryant St and our two properties in Greenville, SC.  We have been signing leases for the Maren since March and had our first tenants move in March 23, 2020.  The building is 17.42% leased and 4.17% occupied as of April 27, 2020 and we expect construction to be complete before the end of the second quarter.  On a positive note, we were able to close on the sale of our remaining lots at Lakeside Business Park on April 3, 2020 for $3.75 million. 

The first quarter numbers for the Mining Royalties segment were strong and were it not for the fact that we are no longer receiving double minimums from Cemex in Lake Louisa, they would have been the same or better than first quarter 2019—which is to say, on pace to match our best year ever.  Mining is considered an essential business and so tenants are still operating on our properties.  It is improbable that home construction and demand has been anything but adversely affected during the last few weeks.  However, the decrease in road traffic due to people working from home has allowed states and municipalities to push forward their timeline for transportation infrastructure projects. We have not seen any second quarter numbers, and it is beyond our ability to anticipate the consequences, seen and unforeseen, that shutting down the economy has had on the construction materials business.  It is our hope that the bump in local infrastructure projects as well as the backlog of jobs created by the sustained period of labor shortage until recently will be enough to sustain the aggregates business until things return to normal.

Dock 79 has been a cause for concern since the onset this pandemic.  Our team is doing its utmost to ensure the safety of our tenants.   However, our restaurant tenants have been hit hard by this as only one of the three restaurants has been able to remain open for takeout.  We are working on a way to allow them to suspend rent payments during the shutdown, without forgoing the ability to recoup them at a later date.  On the residential side, the district has suspended property owners from raising rents effective back to March 11.  Prior to the order, we expected to renew 19 of our 22 expiring leases in April with another two tenants going month-to-month.  Since those renewals included rent increases, we will have to amend the terms of the leases but the renewal rate for April should be unaffected.  Dock 79 was 90.8% leased and 92.8% occupied as of April 27, 2020.  Given the current level of economic uncertainty, we plan to continue to renew tenants to traditional lease terms rather than go month-to-month until the order is lifted, preferring the safety of keeping tenants in place to chasing future rents.  Until the rent freeze is lifted, this negates our ability to grow rents and will dampen rent growth for 2020. 

Our country and the world face a challenging situation.  The economic cost and loss of life is staggering.   Very few companies will make it through this unscathed, and we are no exception.  However, our balance sheet and liquidity have positioned us to sustain it better than a lot of businesses.  The fallout from this horrible situation may provide us with investment opportunities as asset prices drop, but our primary concern as a business is that we are able to protect the assets and projects we already have.  We have continued to put money back into the company in the form of share buybacks.  During the first quarter of 2020, the Company repurchased 82,491 shares at an average cost of $41.47 per share.
