Thomas Properties Group, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

Thomas Properties Group, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2013 Results

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Thomas Properties Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: TPGI  ) reported today the results of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2013.

The results of operations presented in this release include TPGI’s results of operations for three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012. The consolidated net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $9.0 million or $0.20 per share compared to consolidated net loss of $3.1 million or $0.09 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase in the consolidated net loss during the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily due to an increase in general and administrative expenses of $3.25 million to settle a professional fee claim. Additionally, there was a $0.8 million impairment charge to reduce the book value of Campus El Segundo, a development currently held for sale, to estimated net sales proceeds, with no comparable impairment charge in 2012. There was also an overall decrease of $2.7 million from equity in net income (loss) of unconsolidated real estate entities due to our increased ownership interest in the Austin properties from 6.25% to an effective interest of 33.3%.

TPGI's share of after tax cash flow (“ATCF”) for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $0.1 million or $0.00 per share compared to ATCF of $1.7 million or $0.05 per share for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The decrease in ATCF per share for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012 was primarily the result of the overall reduction in consolidated net income described above for the three months ended March 31, 2013 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 the first quarter of 2013, we closed the sales of two land parcels at Four Points Centre in Austin, Texas, as well as three suburban properties owned by our TPG/CalSTRS Austin partnership,” remarked Jim Thomas, Chairman and CEO. “These sales represent further progress in achieving our goal of disposing of non-strategic assets. We successfully refinanced our Two Commerce Square property in Philadelphia, and have continued to sell condominium units at Murano. We are concentrating on increasing the cash flow of our portfolio through acquisitions, improved occupancies and higher rental rates.”

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. For a discussion of some of the factors that may cause our results to differ from management’s expectations, see the information under the captions “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 which is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 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 78.69% and 74.72% for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
