Thomas Properties Group, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results

LOS ANGELES--()--Thomas Properties Group, Inc. (NYSE: TPGI) reported today the results of operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

The results of operations presented in this release include TPGI’s results of operations for three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012. Consolidated net income for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $80.3 million or $1.71 per share compared to consolidated net loss of $4.1 million or $0.09 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Consolidated net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $65.8 million or $1.40 per share compared to consolidated net loss of $12.0 million or $0.30 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in the consolidated net income during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same periods ending September 30, 2012, was primarily due to a $118.2 million gain associated with the liquidation of our TPG/CalSTRS, LLC joint venture in which we transferred our interest in City National Plaza to our venture partner, and acquired our venture partner’s 75% interest in San Felipe Plaza and CityWestPlace resulting in our sole ownership of these two projects in Houston, Texas.

TPGI's share of after tax cash flow (“ATCF”) for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was a loss of $1.4 million or $0.03 per share compared to ATCF of $1.3 million or $0.03 per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The $0.06 decrease in ATCF per share for the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2012 was primarily due to our decreased share of ATCF from the Austin properties. TPGI's share of ATCF for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $0.2 million or $0.00 per share compared to ATCF of $3.4 million or $0.08 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The decrease in ATCF per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was primarily the result of our decreased share of ATCF from the Austin properties 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, impairment loss, gain on liquidation of joint venture, and gain (loss) on sale of real estate. ATCF is further described in note (a) and reconciled to net income (loss) in the financial statements below.

    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; viii) impairment loss; ix) gain on liquidation of joint venture; and x) gain (loss) on sale of real estate. 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 79.83% and 79.68% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013, respectively, and 78.56% and 76.43% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively.
