INLAND LAND APPRECIATION FUND II, L.P.

(a limited partnership)

Notes to Financial Statements

June 30, 2012

(unaudited)

Readers of this quarterly report should refer to the Partnership’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, which are included in the Partnership’s 2011 annual report, as certain footnote disclosures which would substantially duplicate those contained in such audited financial statements have been omitted from this report.

(1) Organization and Basis of Accounting

The Registrant, Inland Land Appreciation Fund II, L.P. (the “Partnership”), is a limited partnership formed on June 28, 1989, pursuant to the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act, to invest in undeveloped land on an all-cash basis and realize appreciation of such land upon resale. Between October 25, 1989 and October 24, 1991, the Partnership sold 50,476.17 Limited Partnership Units (“Units”) at $1,000 per Unit resulting in gross offering proceeds of $50,476,170, not including the General Partner’s capital contribution of $500. The Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership (the “Partnership Agreement”) provides for Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation to be the General Partner. Through June 30, 2012, the Partnership had repurchased a total of 408.65 Units for $383,822 from various Limited Partners through a Unit Repurchase Program.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Certain reclassifications, primarily as a result of discontinued operations, have been made to the 2011 financial statements to conform to the 2012 presentation. Unless otherwise noted, all disclosures in the financial statements relate to the continuing operations of the Partnership.

In the opinion of management, the financial statements contain all the adjustments necessary to present fairly the financial position and results of operations for the periods presented herein. Results of interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the year.

The Partnership considers all highly liquid investments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents and are carried at cost, which approximates market value. The Partnership maintains its cash and cash equivalents at a financial institution. The account balance at the financial institution periodically exceeds the Federal Depository Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance coverage of $250,000 on interest bearing accounts and, as a result, there is a concentration of credit risk related to amounts on deposit in excess of FDIC insurance coverage. The Partnership believes that the risk is not significant, and the Partnership does not anticipate the financial institution’s non-performance.

The Partnership recognizes income from the sale of land parcels in accordance with the full accrual method of accounting.

The Partnership’s escrow agent holds earnest money deposits from a prospective purchaser when an agreement for sale is executed. Generally, these funds are not the Partnership’s until the closing has occurred or the buyer under the sale agreement has committed a default which would entitle the Partnership to the earnest money.

The Partnership uses the area method of allocation, whereby a per acre price is used as the standard allocation method for land purchases and sales. The total cost of the parcel is divided by the total number of acres to arrive at a per acre price. Repairs and maintenance expenses are charged to operations as incurred.

(2) Discontinued Operations and Investment Property Held for Sale

On April 17, 2012, the Partnership sold approximately 50 acres of Parcel 28 resulting in net sales proceeds of $744,400. This property qualified for held for sale accounting treatment under GAAP during the first quarter of 2012. As such, the assets and liabilities were separately classified as investment property held for sale on the balance sheet as of March 31, 2012. The operations for both periods presented are included in discontinued operations on the accompanying statements of operations for the period ended June 30, 2012. As of March 31, 2012, the carrying value of the investment property held for sale was reduced to its fair value of $744,400 resulting in a provision for loss on investment property held for sale of $170,666.

(3) Transactions with Affiliates

The General Partner and its affiliates are entitled to reimbursement for salaries and expenses of employees of the General Partner and its affiliates relating to the administration of the Partnership. Such costs of $43,321 and $58,574 have been incurred and are included in professional services to affiliates and general and administrative expenses to affiliates for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of which $16,777 and $11,978 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

An affiliate of the General Partner performed marketing and advertising services for the Partnership and was reimbursed (as set forth under terms of the Partnership Agreement) for direct costs. Such costs of $3,119 and $2,422 have been incurred and are included in marketing expenses to affiliates for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of which $400 and $170 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

An affiliate of the General Partner performed land improvements, rezoning, annexation and other activities to prepare the Partnership’s investment properties for sale and was reimbursed (as set forth under terms of the Partnership Agreement) for salaries and direct costs. Such costs of $11,591 and $2,958 have been incurred for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Such costs are included in investment properties, of which $3,500 and $1,000 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. In addition, the costs related to Parcel 3/27 and Parcel 18 totaled $15,384 and $12,614 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and are included in land operating expenses to affiliates, of which $4,950 and $2,100 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. The affiliate did not recognize a profit on any project.

As of June 30, 2012, the Partnership held all cash and cash equivalents with Inland Bank and Trust, an affiliate of the General Partner.

(4) Investment Properties

As of June 30, 2012, the Partnership owned six parcels of land consisting of approximately 909 acres. On April 17, 2012, Parcel 28, consisting of approximately 50 acres, was sold.

 

(a)

On a quarterly basis, the Partnership reviews impairment indicators and if necessary, conducts an impairment analysis to ensure that the carrying value of each investment property does not exceed its estimated fair value. If this were to occur, the Partnership would be required to record an impairment loss equal to the excess of the carrying value over the estimated fair value.

 

  

In determining the value of an investment property and whether the property is impaired, management considers several indicators which require difficult, complex and/or subjective judgments, such as projected sales prices, capital expenditures and assessment of current economic conditions. The aforementioned indicators are considered by management in determining the value of any particular property. The value of any particular property is sensitive to

the actual results of any of these uncertain indicators, either individually or taken as a whole. Should the actual results differ from management’s judgment, the valuation could be negatively or positively affected.

 

    

The valuation and possible subsequent impairment of investment properties is a significant estimate that can and does change based on management’s continuous process of analyzing each property. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, the Partnership had recorded no such impairment.

(5) Rental Income

The Partnership has determined that all leases relating to the farm parcels are operating leases. Accordingly, rental income is reported when earned.

As of June 30, 2012, the Partnership had farm leases of generally one year in duration, for approximately 674 acres of the approximately 909 acres owned.

(6) Litigation

On or about April 8, 2010, the Partnership received notification from the attorneys for the Village of Elburn that in effect demanded completion of certain land improvements. The Partnership is a co-indemnitor of the subdivision bonds that secure completion of the land improvements on Parcels 5 and 19 of the Blackberry Subdivision in Elburn, IL. On April 22, 2010, the Partnership received notice from the bonding companies demanding completion and satisfaction of such obligations. Based on information provided by the bonding companies, the Partnership is estimating that the maximum balance of the outstanding subdivision bonds and related fees is approximately $2.7 million. The Partnership believes the actual costs of the remaining improvements of the subdivision for the work related to the called bonds are less than the outstanding bond amounts. The Partnership has been working with a representative of the bonding company who has been working with the Village of Elburn on this matter. A meeting was held to obtain a common understanding of the scope of remaining work required to be completed. The parties determined that it was necessary to hire an engineer to provide an updated punch list of required work. The Partnership received a final updated punch list of required work, as well as bids for the actual cost to complete the required improvements. The Partnership is currently working on a settlement agreement with the bonding company. The details of the settlement agreement are still being negotiated; however, based on information received from the bond company, the estimated cost of the improvements for the work related to the bonds is approximately $1.2 million. Based on this information, as of June 30, 2012, the Partnership has accrued $1.2 million for the estimated cost of the improvements.

On or about December 16, 2011, the Partnership received service of a Third Party Complaint filed by Bond Safeguard Insurance Company (“Bond”) against the Partnership and Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation along with six other third party defendants. The lawsuit has been brought in the Circuit Court of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit in Kane County, Illinois (the “Lawsuit”). In the Lawsuit, the County of Kane (the “County”) alleges that B&B Enterprises and/or Blackberry Creek Development Corporation (collectively “B&B”) are responsible for the relocation of approximately twenty-three power poles at an alleged cost of $819,740. Alternatively, the County alleges that either Bond or Commonwealth Edison Company (“ComEd”) is responsible for the cost of the pole relocation. On November 23, 2011, Bond filed an Answer denying the County’s allegations and has pled five affirmative defenses. The affirmative defenses generally allege that the bond did not cover the pole relocation, that only one pole needs to be relocated at significantly less cost, and alternatively, that ComEd is responsible for any pole relocation costs. As alternative relief, Bond filed a Counterclaim against B&B and ComEd and a Third Party Complaint against the Partnership and four individuals (the “Individuals”) contending that, if Bond is deemed responsible for or settles the County’s allegations, then B&B, the Partnership, and/or the Individuals bear some or all of this responsibility under a General Agreement of Indemnity. Bond also seeks its attorneys’ fees based on such General Agreement of Indemnity.

On February 21, 2012, the Partnership filed an Answer and Affirmative Defenses denying the material allegations asserted by Bond. Bond has not replied to the Affirmative Defenses. B&B, ComEd, and the Individuals have not responded to the pleadings filed by Bond or the County. We understand that the County has served discovery requests to B&B, Bond, and ComEd. No discovery requests have been served on the Partnership.

The investigation of the claims and defenses in the Lawsuit is ongoing. Because the case only recently has been filed and served, it is not possible at this time to evaluate the likelihood of an outcome. For this same reason, any effort to estimate the range of potential loss is limited, other than $0 (based on a judgment in favor of the Partnership), to the approximately $819,740 alleged by the County in its Complaint for the relocation of the poles plus Bond’s allegations for attorneys’ fees. The parties are in the process of discovery, and the next status hearing has been set for September 7, 2012.

(7) Subsequent Events

The Partnership evaluates subsequent events occurring between the most recent balance sheet date and the date that the financial statements are available to be issued in order to determine whether the subsequent events are to be recorded in and/or disclosed in the Partnership’s financial statements and footnotes. The financial statements are considered to be available to be issued at the time that they are filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. There are no subsequent events to report that would have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements.

The SEC previously issued Financial Reporting Release (FRR) or FRR No. 60 “Cautionary Advice Regarding Disclosure About Critical Accounting Policies.” A critical accounting policy is one that would materially affect our operations or financial condition, and requires management to make estimates or judgments in certain circumstances. We believe that our most critical accounting policies relate to how we value, classify and allocate costs of our investment properties and revenue recognition. These judgments often result from the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. The purpose of the FRR is to provide investors with an understanding of how management forms these policies. Critical accounting policies discussed in this section are not to be confused with accounting principles and methods disclosed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America or GAAP. GAAP requires information in financial statements about accounting principles, methods used and disclosures pertaining to significant estimates. The following disclosure discusses judgments known to management pertaining to trends, events or uncertainties known which were taken into consideration upon the application of those policies and the likelihood that materially different amounts would be reported upon taking into consideration different conditions and assumptions.

Valuation of Investment Properties - On a quarterly basis, we review impairment indicators and if necessary, conduct an impairment analysis to ensure that the carrying value of each investment property does not exceed its estimated fair value. If an investment property is considered impaired, we would be required to record an impairment loss equal to the excess of carrying value over the estimated fair value.

In determining the value of an investment property and whether the property is impaired, management considers several indicators which require difficult, complex and/or subjective judgments, such as projected sales prices, capital expenditures and assessment of current economic conditions. These indicators are considered by management in determining the value of any particular property. The value of any particular property is sensitive to the actual results of any of these uncertain indicators, either individually or taken as a whole. Should the actual results differ from management’s judgment, the valuation could be negatively or positively affected.

The valuation and possible subsequent impairment of investment properties is a significant estimate that can and does change based on management’s continuous process of analyzing each property. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, we have not recorded any such impairment. Subsequent costs incurred above the estimated fair value for any parcels that may be deemed to be impaired will be expensed and included in land operating expenses.

Cost Allocation – We use the area method of cost allocation, whereby a per acre price is used as the standard allocation method for land purchases and sales. The total cost of the parcel is divided by the total number of acres to arrive at a per acre price.

 

-9-


Revenue Recognition - We recognize income from the sale of land parcels in accordance with the full accrual method of accounting.

Assets Held for Sale - In determining whether to classify an asset as held for sale, we consider whether: (i) management has committed to a plan to sell the asset; (ii) the asset is available for immediate sale in its present condition; (iii) we have initiated a program to locate a buyer; (iv) we believe that the sale of the asset is probable; (v) we are actively marketing the asset for sale at a price that is reasonable in relation to its current value; and (vi) actions required for us to complete the plan indicate that it is unlikely that any significant changes will be made to the plan.

If all of the above criteria are met, we classify the asset as held for sale. The assets and liabilities associated with those assets that are held for sale are classified separately on the balance sheets for the most recent reporting period. Additionally, the operations for the periods presented are included in the statements of operations as discontinued operations for all periods presented. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we have not classified any properties as held for sale.

From time to time, we may determine that a “held for sale property” no longer meets the criteria to continue to be classified as held for sale. If this occurs, we record the property at the lower of the carrying amount before the property was classified as held for sale or the fair value at the decision date not to sell.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Between October 25, 1989 and October 24, 1991, we sold 50,476.17 limited partnership units to the public at $1,000 per unit resulting in $50,476,170 in gross offering proceeds, not including the general partner’s capital contribution of $500.

We used $41,314,301 of gross offering proceeds to purchase, on an all-cash basis, 27 parcels of undeveloped land and two buildings. These investments include the payment of the purchase price, acquisition fees and acquisition costs of such properties. Three of the parcels were purchased during 1990, sixteen during 1991, four during 1992, and four during 1993. On September 16, 2002, we completed a tax-deferred exchange of Parcels 9 and 12 for 50 acres in Kendall County (Parcel 28). Through June 30, 2012, we have had multiple sales, exchange transactions, and conveyances through which we have disposed of the buildings and approximately 3,621 acres of the approximately 4,530 acres originally owned. As of June 30, 2012, cumulative distributions have totaled $90,332,012 to the limited partners, which is equivalent to 179% of the original capital raised which was $50,476,170, and $13,313,195 to the general partner. Of the $90,332,012 distributed to the limited partners, $89,611,012 was net sales proceeds and $721,000 was from operations. As of June 30, 2012, we have used $47,369,201 of working capital for rezoning and other activities. Such amounts have been capitalized and are included in investment properties.

Our capital needs and resources will vary depending upon a number of factors, including the extent to which we conduct rezoning and other activities relating to utility access, the installation of roads, subdivision and/or annexation of land to a municipality, changes in real estate taxes affecting our land, and the amount of revenue received from leasing. As of June 30, 2012, we own, in whole or in part, six parcels, consisting of approximately 909 acres of which 674 are leased to local farmers and are generating sufficient cash flow from leases to cover real estate taxes and insurance.

At June 30, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $2,738,339 which is available to be used for our costs and liabilities, cash distributions to partners and other activities with respect to some or all of our land parcels.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, we received net sales proceeds of $744,400 from the sale of the 50 acres comprising Parcel 28. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, there were no land sales. Net sales proceeds, including previously undistributed net sales proceeds, will be used to fund our operations, including land improvements and land use activities. We will evaluate our cash needs throughout the year to determine any future distributions.

Parcel 18 has been zoned and planned for residential use. On March 2, 2011, a settlement agreement and mutual release with prejudice was reached with William Ryan Homes, Inc. (“Ryan”), the former builder of Parcel 18. As part of the settlement the builder transferred a residential lot to the Partnership and in return, the Partnership paid to Ryan approximately $34,000. With the suit resolved, marketing of the remaining lots for sale to both homebuilders and individuals commenced. Due to the downturn in the real estate market, no serious offers were received.

 

-10-


During the second quarter of 2012, we reinitiated a direct mail marketing campaign targeting local and national homebuilders highlighting all of the residential lots owned by the Partnership. Initial response is favorable and we remain optimistic that the recent improvements in the economy and residential real estate markets will enable the Partnership to find a builder willing to acquire some if not all of our residential lots.

We plan to enhance the value of our remaining land through pre-development activities such as rezoning, annexation and land planning. We have already been successful in, or are in the process of, pre-development activity on several of our land investments. Parcel 20 has been granted rezoning which will permit additional land to be used for development. During March 2011, approximately 3.1 acres of Parcel 20 were conveyed to the Village of Montgomery for use as part of a sanitary booster station and a storm water management basin. The Illinois Department of Transportation (“IDOT”) has initiated condemnation proceedings to acquire rights to approximately 4.077 acres of land to facilitate its road improvement project at US-30 adjacent to Parcel 20. IDOT is acquiring rights via right of way taking, permanent easements, and temporary easements. The court issued an order approving a just compensation amount to the Partnership totaling $450,800. We expect to obtain possession of such funds in approximately 90 days, after filing additional petitions with the court.

We continue to closely monitor the real estate market trends, especially within the areas where our remaining parcels are located. We have seen modest improvements in the residential resale real estate market, however, new home starts in these middle class communities remain weak. That, coupled with strict lender requirements, adversely impact sales activity, especially sales of residential lots and sales of vacant land for retail purposes. There have been reports of farm parcel sales in surrounding communities from both speculators looking to hold land until the market rebounds as well as farmers looking to increase their farming businesses. We realize it could take some time for these current trends to improve which could result in an even longer holding period. However, we believe we have taken the steps necessary to reduce costs and maintain sufficient reserves of cash and cash equivalents to cover all our costs for an extended period of time. We have farm leases in place which generate sufficient income to cover the costs of insurance expense and real estate taxes. Our remaining land is not encumbered by debt and is located in areas that we believe are in the paths of future development.

Transactions with Related Parties

Our general partner and its affiliates are entitled to reimbursement for salaries and expenses of employees of the general partner and its affiliates relating to our administration. Such costs of $43,321 and $58,574 have been incurred and are included in professional services to affiliates and general and administrative expenses to affiliates for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of which $16,777 and $11,978 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

An affiliate of our general partner performed marketing and advertising services for us and was reimbursed for direct costs. Such costs of $3,119 and $2,422 have been incurred and are included in marketing expenses to affiliates for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, of which $400 and $170 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

An affiliate of our general partner performed land improvements, rezoning, annexation and other activities to prepare our investment properties for sale and was reimbursed for salaries and direct costs. Such costs of $11,591 and $2,958 have been incurred for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Such costs are included in investment properties, of which $3,500 and $1,000 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. In addition, the costs related to Parcel 3/27 and Parcel 18 totaled $15,384 and $12,614 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and are included in land operating expenses to affiliates, of which $4,950 and $2,100 was unpaid as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively. The affiliate did not recognize a profit on any project.

As of June 30, 2012, the Partnership held all cash and cash equivalents with Inland Bank and Trust, an affiliate of the General Partner.

Results of Operations

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, income from the sale of investment property of $744,400 and the related cost of investment property sold of $744,400 is the result of the sale of the 50 acres comprising Parcel 28. The lack of sales

 

-11-


activity for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was the result of the depressed real estate market and the slowdown in the sales of vacant land and residential lots.

As of June 30, 2012, we owned six parcels of land consisting of approximately 909 acres. Of the approximately 909 acres owned, 674 acres are tillable, leased to local farmers and generate sufficient cash flow to cover real estate taxes and insurance. Rental income was $103,860 and $77,765 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Rental income increased due to an increase in the farm rental rates.

Professional services to affiliates and non-affiliates were $83,941 and $108,123 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Professional services to affiliates and non-affiliates decreased due to a decrease in legal fees as the litigation in regards to Parcel 18 settled during the first quarter of 2011.

General and administrative expenses to affiliates and non-affiliates were $28,970 and $28,722 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. General and administrative expenses primarily include data processing costs, postage, printing expenses and farm management fees. General and administrative expenses to affiliates and non-affiliates increased primarily due to an increase in farm management fees. Farm management fees are incurred when the farm rent is negotiated and collected. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the annual amount of the farm lease was collected in one installment; therefore, the farm management fee was fully assessed during the first quarter. In addition, the unearned income of $103,561 reflects the collection of all the annual farm rent during the first quarter of 2012.

Marketing expenses to affiliates and non-affiliates were $3,394 and $2,422 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Marketing expenses to affiliates and non-affiliates are costs incurred for preparing and marketing parcels for sale. The increase in marketing expenses is related to the sale of Parcel 28 and the direct mail marketing campaign.

Land operating expenses to affiliates and non-affiliates were $1,265,151 and $81,337 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. These costs typically include real estate tax expense, ground maintenance expense and the Partnership’s proportionate share of the homeowners association fees. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, we have accrued $1,200,000 in land operating costs as a result of the estimated liability for the punch list of required work under the bond obligations for Parcels 5 and 19 of the Blackberry subdivision in Elburn, IL. See the litigation discussion below.

Interest income was $5,317 and $11,495 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Interest income is primarily a result of cash available to invest on a short term basis during the year as a result of sales proceeds received. Interest income decreased due to lower interest rates.

Other income was $10,650 and $5,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Other income is due primarily to transfer fee income as a result of the number of completed Unit transfers. The increase in 2012 is due to more transfer fee income as a result of an increased number of completed Unit transfers.

Income from discontinued operations was $3,910 and $3,892 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Included in income from discontinued operations are the rental income, insurance and real estate taxes pertaining to the investment property held for sale. The income from discontinued operations increased primarily due to an increase in the farm rent rates. In addition, during the first quarter of 2012, the carrying value of the investment property held for sale was reduced to its fair value of $744,400 resulting in a provision for loss on investment property held for sale of $170,666.

Subsequent Events

The Partnership evaluates subsequent events occurring between the most recent balance sheet date and the date that the financial statements are available to be issued in order to determine whether the subsequent events are to be recorded in and/or disclosed in the Partnership’s financial statements and footnotes. The financial statements are considered to be available to be issued at the time that they are filed with the SEC. There are no subsequent events to report that would have a material impact on the Partnership’s financial statements.

Other Items

In accordance with Article XVI Section 16.1 of the Inland Land Appreciation Fund II, L.P. Partnership Agreement and Treasury Regulation Section 1.7704-1(j), we have reached the maximum threshold of limited partnership units that may be transferred/assigned directly between parties during 2012. Therefore, we may not authorize additional sales of partnership units directly between parties during 2012. For the benefit of interested limited partners, we have a relationship with a “qualified matching service” as defined under Treasury Regulation Section 1.7704-1(g). In accordance with this Treasury Regulation and the IRS private letter ruling obtained by the “qualified matching service”, we understand that limited partnership units may be transferred/assigned up to a separate maximum threshold each taxable year (in addition to the maximum threshold that may be transferred/assigned directly between parties discussed above). However, there can be no assurance that the IRS private letter ruling will apply to transfers of our units, or that any particular transfer will not violate the transfer restrictions contained in our partnership agreement or the provisions of Treasury Regulation Section 1.7704-1(g). If you have any interest in participating in a transfer/assignment of partnership units through this “qualified matching service,” please contact American Partnership Board directly at 800-736-9797. You are strongly encouraged to consult your personal legal, financial and tax advisors in connection with any such transfer/assignment.

The Illinois Department of Revenue regulates Illinois income tax withholding requirements for nonresident partners. For the taxable year ending December 31, 2011, there were no withholdings required. We are also required to pay a withholding tax to the Internal Revenue Service with respect to a partner’s allocable share of our taxable net income, if the partner is a foreign person. We will first pay the withholding tax from the distributions to any nonresident and/or foreign partners, and to the extent that the tax exceeds the amount of distributions withheld, or if there have been no distributions to withhold, the excess will be accounted for as a distribution to such nonresident and/or foreign partners. For the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, there were no withholdings paid.

Litigation

On or about April 8, 2010, the Partnership received notification from the attorneys for the Village of Elburn that in effect demanded completion of certain land improvements. The Partnership is a co-indemnitor of the subdivision bonds that secure completion of the land improvements on Parcels 5 and 19 of the Blackberry Subdivision in Elburn, IL. On April 22, 2010, the Partnership received notice from the bonding companies demanding completion and satisfaction of such obligations. Based on information provided by the bonding companies, the Partnership is estimating that the maximum balance of the outstanding subdivision bonds and related fees is approximately $2.7 million. The Partnership believes the actual costs of the remaining improvements of the subdivision for the work related to the called bonds are less than the outstanding bond amounts. The Partnership has been working with a representative of the bonding company who has been

 

-17-


working with the Village of Elburn on this matter. A meeting was held to obtain a common understanding of the scope of remaining work required to be completed. The parties determined that it was necessary to hire an engineer to provide an updated punch list of required work. The Partnership received a final updated punch list of required work, as well as bids for the actual cost to complete the required improvements. The Partnership is currently working on a settlement agreement with the bonding company. The details of the settlement agreement are still being negotiated; however, based on information received from the bond company, the estimated cost of the improvements for the work related to the bonds is approximately $1.2 million. Based on this information, as of June 30, 2012, the Partnership has accrued $1.2 million for the estimated cost of the improvements.

On or about December 16, 2011, the Partnership received service of a Third Party Complaint filed by Bond Safeguard Insurance Company (“Bond”) against the Partnership and Inland Real Estate Investment Corporation along with six other third party defendants. The lawsuit has been brought in the Circuit Court of the Sixteenth Judicial Circuit in Kane County, Illinois (the “Lawsuit”). In the Lawsuit, the County of Kane (the “County”) alleges that B&B Enterprises and/or Blackberry Creek Development Corporation (collectively “B&B”) are responsible for the relocation of approximately twenty-three power poles at an alleged cost of $819,740. Alternatively, the County alleges that either Bond or Commonwealth Edison Company (“ComEd”) is responsible for the cost of the pole relocation. On November 23, 2011, Bond filed an Answer denying the County’s allegations and has pled five affirmative defenses. The affirmative defenses generally allege that the bond did not cover the pole relocation, that only one pole needs to be relocated at significantly less cost, and alternatively, that ComEd is responsible for any pole relocation costs. As alternative relief, Bond filed a Counterclaim against B&B and ComEd and a Third Party Complaint against the Partnership and four individuals (the “Individuals”) contending that, if Bond is deemed responsible for or settles the County’s allegations, then B&B, the Partnership, and/or the Individuals bear some or all of this responsibility under a General Agreement of Indemnity. Bond also seeks its attorneys’ fees based on such General Agreement of Indemnity.

On February 21, 2012, the Partnership filed an Answer and Affirmative Defenses denying the material allegations asserted by Bond. Bond has not replied to the Affirmative Defenses. B&B, ComEd, and the Individuals have not responded to the pleadings filed by Bond or the County. We understand that the County has served discovery requests to B&B, Bond, and ComEd. No discovery requests have been served on the Partnership.

The investigation of the claims and defenses in the Lawsuit is ongoing. Because the case only recently has been filed and served, it is not possible at this time to evaluate the likelihood of an outcome. For this same reason, any effort to estimate the range of potential loss is limited, other than $0 (based on a judgment in favor of the Partnership), to the approximately $819,740 alleged by the County in its Complaint for the relocation of the poles plus Bond’s allegations for attorneys’ fees. The parties are in the process of discovery, and the next status hearing has been set for September 7, 2012.

Item 4.   Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We have established disclosure controls and procedures to ensure that material information relating to us is made known to the members of senior management and the Audit Committee.

Based on management’s evaluation as of June 30, 2012, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) are effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms.

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). Under the supervision and with the participation of our

 

-18-


management, including our principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on our evaluation under the framework in Internal Control - Integrated Framework, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of June 30, 2012. This quarterly report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.

There were no changes to our internal controls over financial reporting during the six months ended June 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
