Thomas Properties Group, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

LOS ANGELES--()--Thomas Properties Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPGI) reported today the results of operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

The results of operations presented in this release include TPGI’s results of operations for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. The consolidated net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $13.4 million or $0.29 per share compared to consolidated net income of $10.1 million or $0.27 per share for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The consolidated net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $25.4 million or $0.61 per share compared to consolidated net income of $5.9 million or $0.16 per share for twelve months ended December 31, 2011. The increase in the consolidated net loss during the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 is due to a $6.1 million decrease in investment advisory fees primarily related to one-time incentive fees earned in 2011, $4.6 million of increased impairment charges at our development properties, $23.7 million decrease in income from unconsolidated real estate entities primarily due to our share of gain on disposition of certain joint venture assets in 2011, and a $1.3 million gain from sale of a land parcel for the year ended December 31, 2011 with no comparable gain from sale in 2012.

TPGI's share of after tax cash flow (“ATCF”) for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $4.1 million or $0.09 per share compared to ATCF of $17.9 million or $0.49 per share for the three months ended December 31, 2011. TPGI's share of after tax cash flow for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 was $7.4 million or $0.18 per share compared to after tax cash flow of $27.2 million or $0.74 per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in ATCF per share for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the twelve months ended December 31, 2011 was primarily the result of the overall reduction in consolidated net income described above for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 compared to the same period in the prior year, 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 tax expense (benefit), non-cash charges for depreciation and amortization and asset impairment, amortization of loan costs, non-cash compensation expense, adjustments to recognize rental revenues using the straight-line method, adjustments to rental revenue to reflect the fair market value of rents, and gain from extinguishment of debt. ATCF is further described in note (a) and reconciled to net income (loss) in the financial statements below.

During 2012, we made real progress toward the achievement of our strategic plan,” said Jim Thomas, Chairman and CEO. “We have continued to dispose of non-core operating assets and non income-producing investments and to pay down debt where practicable. We have recapitalized and increased our ownership interest in our Austin properties, and we have increased the occupancy of our present portfolio to 88%. We are continuing our focused strategy of maximizing our recurring cash flow and expanding our asset base.”

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.

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 from extinguishment of debt. Our 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 substitute for cash flow from operating activities (computed in accordance with GAAP).
 
b. Based on an interest in our operating partnership of 78.68% and 77.03% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, respectively, and 74.67% and 74.71% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, respectively.
