PART I

 

Item 1. Business.

 

GENERAL

 

The InterGroup Corporation (“InterGroup” or the “Company” and may also be referred to as “we” “us” or “our” in this report) is a Delaware corporation formed in 1985, as the successor to Mutual Real Estate Investment Trust ("M-REIT"), a New York real estate investment trust created in 1965. The Company has been a publicly-held company since M-REIT's first public offering of shares in 1966.

 

The Company was organized to buy, develop, operate, rehabilitate and dispose of real property of various types and descriptions, and to engage in such other business and investment activities as would benefit the Company and its shareholders. The Company was founded upon, and remains committed to, social responsibility. Such social responsibility was originally defined as providing decent and affordable housing to people without regard to race. In 1985, after examining the impact of federal, state and local equal housing laws, the Company determined to broaden its definition of social responsibility. The Company changed its form from a REIT to a corporation so that it could pursue a variety of investments beyond real estate and broaden its social impact to engage in any opportunity which would offer the potential to increase shareholder value within the Company's underlying commitment to social responsibility.

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company owned approximately 79.9% of the common shares of Santa Fe Financial Corporation (“Santa Fe”), a public company (OTCBB: SFEF). Santa Fe’s revenue is primarily generated through its 68.8% owned subsidiary, Portsmouth Square, Inc. (“Portsmouth”), a public company (OTCBB: PRSI). InterGroup also directly owns approximately 12.5% of Portsmouth. Portsmouth’s principal business is conducted through its general and limited partnership interest in the Justice Investors limited partnership (“Justice” or the “Partnership”). The Portsmouth has a 50.0% limited partnership interest in Justice and serves as the Managing General Partner. The other general partner is Evon Corporation (“Evon”). Justice owns a 543 room hotel property located at 750 Kearny Street, San Francisco, California 94108, known as the “Hilton San Francisco Financial District” (the “Hotel”) and related facilities, including a five level underground parking garage. The financial statements of Justice are consolidated with those of the Company. See Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Most significant partnership decisions require the active participation and approval of both general partners. Pursuant to the terms of the partnership agreement, voting rights of the partners are determined according to the partners’ entitlement to share in the net profit and loss of the partnership. The Company is not entitled to any additional voting rights by virtue of its position as a general partner. The partnership agreement provides that no portion of the partnership real property can be sold without the written consent of the general partners and the limited partners entitled to more than 72% of the net profit. The partnership agreement also provides that amendments to the agreement may be made only upon the consent of the general partners and at least seventy 75% of the interests of the limited partners and the consent of at least 75% of the interests of the limited partners will also be required to remove a general partner. As of June 30, 2012, there were 113 limited partners in Justice, including Portsmouth and Evon.

 

Historically, the Partnership’s most significant source of income was a lease between Justice and Holiday Inn for the Hotel portion of the property. That lease was amended in 1995, and ultimately assumed by Felcor Lodging Trust, Inc. (“Felcor”) in 1998. The lease of the Hotel to Felcor was terminated effective June 30, 2004. With the termination of the Hotel lease, Justice assumed the role of an owner/operator with the assistance of a third party management company. Effective July 1, 2004, the Hotel was operated as a Holiday Inn Select brand hotel pursuant to a short-term franchise agreement until it was temporarily closed for major renovations on May 31, 2005. The Hotel was reopened on January 12, 2006 to operate as a full service Hilton hotel, pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation. Justice also has a Management Agreement with Prism Hospitality L.P. (“Prism”) to perform the day-to-day management functions of the Hotel.

Until September 30, 2008, the Partnership also derived income from the lease of the parking garage to Evon. As discussed below, effective October 1, 2008, Justice entered into an installment sale agreement with Evon to purchase the remaining term of the garage lease and related garage assets at which time the garage became a part of the Partnership’s operations. Justice also leases a portion of the lobby level of the Hotel to a day spa operator. Portsmouth also receives management fees as the Managing General Partner of Justice for its services in overseeing and managing the Partnership’s assets and limited partnership distributions as may be declared by Justice.

 

In addition to the operations of the Hotel, the Company also generates income from the ownership, management and, when appropriate, sale of real estate. Properties include seventeen apartment complexes, two commercial real estate properties and two single-family houses. The properties are located throughout the United States, but are concentrated in Texas and Southern California. The Company also has investments in unimproved real property. All of the Company’s residential rental properties in California are managed by professional third party property management companies and the rental properties outside of California are managed by the Company. The commercial real estate in California is also managed by the Company.

 

The Company acquires its investments in real estate and other investments utilizing cash, securities or debt, subject to approval or guidelines of the Board of Directors and its Real Estate Investment Committee. The Company may also look for new real estate investment opportunities in hotels, apartments, office buildings and development properties. The acquisition of any new real estate investments will depend on the Company’s ability to find suitable investment opportunities and the availability of sufficient financing to acquire such investments. To help fund any such acquisition, the Company may borrow funds to leverage its investment capital. The amount of any such debt will depend on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the availability of financing and the sufficiency of the acquisition property’s projected cash flows to support the operations and debt service.

 

The Company also derives income from the investment of its cash and investment securities assets. The Company has invested in income-producing instruments, equity and debt securities and will consider other investments if such investments offer growth or profit potential. See Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations for a discussion of the Company’s marketable securities and other investments.

 

RECENT BUSINESS DEVELOPMENTS

 

Garage Installment Sale Agreement and Parking Facilities Management Agreement

 

Effective October 1, 2008, Justice and Evon entered into an Installment Sale Agreement whereby the Partnership purchased all of Evon’s right title and interest in the remaining term of its lease of the parking garage, which was to expire on November 30, 2010, and other related assets. The partnership also agreed to assume Evon’s contract with Ace Parking Management, Inc. (“Ace Parking”) for the management of the garage and any other liabilities related to the operation of the garage commencing October 1, 2008. The purchase price for the garage lease and related assets was approximately $755,000, payable in one down payment of approximately $28,000 and 26 equal monthly installments of approximately $29,000, which included interest at the rate of 2.4% per annum. The Note was fully paid as of November 2010.

 

On October 31, 2010, Justice Investors and Ace Parking entered into an amendment of the Parking Agreement to extend the term for a period of sixty two (62) months, commencing on November 1, 2010 and terminating December 31, 2015, subject to either party’s right to terminate the agreement without cause on ninety (90) days written notice. The monthly management fee of $2,000 and the accounting fee of $250 remain the same, but the amendment modified how the Excess Profit Fee to be paid to Ace would be calculated. The amendment provides that, if net operating income (“NOI”) from the garage operations exceeds $1,800,000 but is less than $2,000,000, Ace will be entitled to an Excess Profit Fee of one percent (1%) of the total annual NOI. If the annual NOI is $2,000,000 or higher, Ace will be entitled to an Excess Profit Fee equal to two percent (2%) of the total annual NOI. The prior Excess Profit Fee entitled Ace to receive three percent of NOI in excess of $150,000.

Amendments to Justice Investors Limited Partnership Agreement

 

On December 1, 2008, Portsmouth and Evon, as the two general partners of Justice, entered into a 2008 Amendment to the Limited Partnership Agreement (the “Amendment”) that provides for a change in the respective roles of the general partners. Pursuant to the Amendment, Portsmouth assumed the role of Managing General Partner and Evon continued on as the Co-General Partner of Justice. The Amendment was ratified by approximately 98% of the limited partnership interests. The Amendment also provides that future amendments to the Limited Partnership Agreement may be made only upon the consent of the general partners and at least seventy five percent (75%) of the interests of the limited partners. Consent of at least 75% of the interests of the limited partners will also be required to remove a general partner pursuant to the Amendment.

 

Effective November 30, 2010, the general and limited partners of Justice Investors entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership, which was approved and ratified by more than 98% of the limited partnership interests of Justice. The Partnership Agreement was amended and restated in its entirety to comply with the new provisions of the California Corporations Code known as the “Uniform Limited Partnership Act of 2008”. The amendment did not result in any material modifications of the rights or obligations of the general and limited partners.

 

New General Partner Compensation Agreement

 

Concurrent with the December 2008 Amendment to the Limited Partnership Agreement, a new General Partner Compensation Agreement (the “Compensation Agreement”) was entered into on December 1, 2008, among Justice, Portsmouth and Evon to terminate and supersede all prior compensation agreement for the general partners. Pursuant to the Compensation Agreement, the general partners of Justice are entitled to receive an amount equal to 1.5% of the gross annual revenues of the Partnership (as defined), less $75,000 to be used as a contribution toward the cost of Justice engaging an asset manager. In no event shall the annual compensation be less than a minimum base of approximately $285,000, with eighty percent (80%) of that amount being allocated to Portsmouth for its services as managing general partner and twenty percent (20%) allocated to Evon as the co-general partner. Compensation earned by the general partners in each calendar year in excess of the minimum base, will be payable in equal fifty percent (50%) shares to Portsmouth and Evon. During the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the general partners were paid approximately $562,000 and $468,000 respectively, under the applicable compensation agreements. Of those amounts, approximately $366,000 and $323,000 was paid to Portsmouth for fiscal 2012 and 2011.

 

Comstock Mining, Inc. Debt Restructuring

 

On October 20, 2010, as part of a debt restructuring of one of its investments, the Company exchanged approximately $13,231,000 in notes, convertible notes and debt instruments that it held in Comstock Mining, Inc. (“Comstock” – now NYSE MKT: LODE) for 13,231 shares ($1,000 stated value) of newly created 7 1/2% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (the “A-1 Preferred”) of Comstock. Prior to the exchange, those notes and convertible debt instruments had a carrying value of $1,809,000, net of impairment adjustments. The Company accounted for the transaction as an exchange of its debt securities and recorded the new instruments (A-1 Preferred) received based on their fair value. The Company estimated the fair value of the A-1 Preferred at $1,000 per share, which was the stated value of the instrument, for a total of $13,231,000. The fair value of the A-1 Preferred had a similar value to the Series B preferred stock financing (stated value of $1,000 per share) by which Comstock concurrently raised $35.7 million in new capital from other investors in October 2010. The Company recorded an unrealized gain of $11,422,000 related to the preferred stock received in exchange for debt as part of the debt restructuring. See Note 6 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

Sales, Purchases and Refinancings of Properties

 

In January 2012, the Company sold its 24-unit apartment complex located in Los Angeles, California for $4,370,000. The Company realized a gain on the sale of real estate of approximately $1,710,000 and received net proceeds of $4,111,000 from the sale after selling costs. The Company paid off the related mortgage note payable balance of $1,504,000.

  

In December 2011, the Company refinanced its $926,000 mortgage note payable on its 12-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year mortgage in the amount of $2,095,000. The interest rate on the new loan is fixed at 4.25% per annum for the first 5 years and variable for the remaining 5 years, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in January 2022. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $1,122,000 from the refinancing.

 

In January 2011, the Company sold its 132-unit apartment complex located in San Antonio, Texas for $5,500,000 and recognized a gain on the sale of real estate of $3,290,000. The Company received net proceeds of $2,030,000 after selling costs and the pay-off of the related outstanding mortgage note payable of $3,215,000. The proceeds were placed with a third party accommodator for the purpose of executing a Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange for another property. In April 2011, the Company purchased a 9-unit beachside apartment complex located in Marina Del Rey, California for $4,000,000 to effectuate that exchange. As part of the purchase, the Company obtained a mortgage note payable in the amount of $1,487,000. The interest rate on the loan is fixed at 5.60% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in May 2021.

 

HILTON HOTELS FRANCHISE LICENSE AGREEMENT

 

On December 10, 2004, the Partnership entered into a Franchise License Agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation (the “Franchise Agreement”) for the right to operate the Hotel as a Hilton brand hotel. The term of the Franchise Agreement is for 15 years commencing on the opening date of the Hotel, January 12, 2006, with an option to extend that Agreement for another five years, subject to certain conditions.

 

Pursuant to the Franchise Agreement, the Partnership paid monthly royalty fees for the first two years of three percent (3%) of the Hotel’s gross room revenue, as defined, for the preceding calendar month; the third year was at four percent (4%) of the Hotel’s gross room revenue; and the fourth year until the end of the term will be five percent (5%) of the Hotel’s gross room revenue. Justice also pays a monthly program fee of four percent (4%) of the Hotel’s gross room revenue. The amount of the monthly program fee is subject to change; however, the increase cannot exceed one percent (1%) of the Hotel gross room revenue in any calendar year, and the cumulative increases in the monthly fees will not exceed five percent (5%) of gross room revenue. The Partnership also pays a monthly information technology recapture charge of 0.75% of the Hotel’s gross revenue. Due to the difficult economic environment, Hilton agreed to reduce its information technology fees to 0.65% for the 2010 calendar year.

 

Prior to operating the Hotel as a Hilton hotel, the Partnership was required to make substantial renovations to the Hotel to meet Hilton standards in accordance with a product improvement plan (“PIP”) agreed upon by Hilton and the Partnership, as well as comply with other brand standards. That project included a complete renovation and upgrade of all of the Hotel’s guestrooms, meeting rooms, common areas and restaurant and bar. As of January 12, 2006, the Hotel renovation work was substantially completed, at which time Justice obtained approval from Hilton to open the Hotel as the “Hilton San Francisco Financial District”. The Hotel opened with a limited number of rooms available to rent, which increased as the Hotel transitioned into full operations by the end of February 2006.

 

The total cost of the construction-renovation project of the Hotel was approximately $37,030,000, which includes approximately $630,000 in interest costs incurred during the construction phase that were capitalized. To meet those substantial financial commitments, and the costs of operations during the renovation period and for the first five months when the Hotel ramped up its operations, the Partnership has relied on additional borrowings to meet its obligations. As discussed in Item 2. Properties, the Partnership was able to secure adequate financing, collateralized by the Hotel, to meet those commitments.

HOTEL MANAGEMENT COMPANY AGREEMENT

 

In February 2007, the Partnership terminated its prior hotel management agreement with Dow Hotel Company and entered into a management agreement with Prism Hospitality (“Prism”) to manage and operate the Hotel as its agent, effective February 10, 2007. Prism is an experienced Hilton approved operator of upscale and luxury hotels throughout the Americas. The agreement is effective for a term of ten years, unless the agreement is extended as provided in the agreement, and the Partnership has the right to terminate the agreement upon ninety days written notice without further obligation. Under the management agreement, the Partnership is to pay base management fees of 2.5% of gross operating revenues for the fiscal year. However, 0.75% of the stated management fee is due only if the partially adjusted net operating income for the subject fiscal year exceeds the amount of a minimum Partnership return ($7 million) for that fiscal year. Prism is also entitled to an incentive management fee if certain milestones are accomplished. No incentive fees were earned during the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. In support of the Partnership’s efforts to reduce costs in this difficult economic environment, Prism agreed to reduce its management fees by fifty percent from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010, after which the original fee provision went back into effect. Management fees paid to Prism during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were $626,000 and $469,000, respectively.

 

GARAGE OPERATIONS

 

As discussed above, until September 30, 2008, the garage portion of the Hotel property was leased by the Partnership to Evon. Effective October 1, 2008, Justice and Evon entered into an Installment Sale Agreement whereby the Partnership purchased all of Evon’s right title and interest in the remaining term of its lease of the parking garage, which was to expire on November 30, 2010, and other related assets. The Partnership also agreed to assume Evon’s contract with Ace Parking Management, Inc. (“Ace Parking”) for the management of the garage and any other liabilities related to the operation of the garage commencing October 1, 2008.

 

The garage is currently operated by Ace Parking for the Partnership pursuant to a Parking Facilities Management Agreement (the “Parking Agreement”). The initial term of the Parking Agreement was to expire on October 31, 2010, with an option to renew for another five-year term. Pursuant to that agreement, the Partnership paid Ace Parking a management fee of $2,000 per month, an accounting fee equal to $250 per month, plus “Excess Profit Fee” equal to three percent (3%) of annual net profits in excess of $150,000.

 

On October 31, 2010, Justice Investors and Ace Parking entered into an amendment of the Parking Agreement to extend the term for a period of sixty two (62) months, commencing on November 1, 2010 and terminating December 31, 2015, subject to either party’s right to terminate the agreement without cause on ninety (90) days written notice. The monthly management fee of $2,000 and the accounting fee of $250 remain the same, but the amendment modified how the Excess Profit Fee to be paid to Ace would be calculated. The amendment provides that, if net operating income (“NOI”) from the garage operations exceeds $1,800,000 but is less than $2,000,000, Ace will be entitled to an Excess Profit Fee of one percent (1%) of the total annual NOI. If the annual NOI is $2,000,000 or higher, Ace will be entitled to an Excess Profit Fee equal to two percent (2%) of the total annual NOI.

 

TRU SPA LEASE

 

Approximately 5,400 square feet of space on the lobby level of the Hotel is leased to Tru Spa for the operation of a health and beauty spa. The lease expires in May 2013, with a five year option to extend the term. The spa lease provides for minimum monthly rent of $14,000. Minimum rental amounts are subject to adjustment every three years based on increases in the Consumer Price Index.

 

CHINESE CULTURE FOUNDATION LEASE

 

On March 15, 2005, the Partnership entered into an amended lease with the Chinese Culture Foundation of San Francisco (the “Foundation”) for the third floor space of the Hotel commonly known as the Chinese Cultural Center, which the Foundation had right to occupy pursuant to a 50-year nominal rent lease.

 

The amended lease requires the Partnership to pay to the Foundation a monthly event space fee in the amount of $5,000, adjusted annually based on the local Consumer Price Index. The term of the amended lease expires on October 17, 2023, with an automatic extension for another 10 year term if the property continues to be operated as a hotel. This amendment allowed Justice to incorporate the third floor into the renovation of the Hotel resulting in a new ballroom for the joint use of the Hotel and new offices and a gallery for the Chinese Culture Center.

RENTAL PROPERTIES

 

As June 30, 2012, the Company's investment in real estate consisted of properties located throughout the United States, with a concentration in Texas and Southern California. These properties include seventeen apartment complexes, two single-family houses as strategic investments and two commercial real estate properties. All properties are operating properties. In addition to the properties, the Company owns approximately 4.1 acres of unimproved real estate in Texas and 2 acres of unimproved land in Maui, Hawaii.

 

MANAGEMENT OF RENTAL PROPERTIES

 

The Company may engage third party management companies as agents to manage certain of Company’s residential rental properties.

 

On August 1, 2005, the Company entered into a Management Agreement with Century West Properties, Inc. (“Century West”) to act as an agent of the Company to rent and manage all of the Company’s residential rental properties in the Los Angeles, California area. The Management Agreement with Century West was for an original term of twelve months ending on July 31, 2006 and continues on a month-to-month basis, until terminated upon 30 days prior written notice. The Management Agreement provides for a monthly fee equal to 4% of the monthly gross receipts from the properties with resident managers and a fee of 4 1/2% of monthly gross receipts for properties without resident managers. During the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the management fees were $140,000 and $161,000, respectively.

In addition to its Hotel and real estate operations, the Company also invests from time to time in income producing instruments, corporate debt and equity securities, publically traded investment funds, mortgage backed securities, securities issued by REIT’s and other companies which invest primarily in real estate.

 

The Company’s securities investments are made under the supervision of a Securities Investment Committee of the Board of Directors. The Committee currently has three members and is chaired by the Company’s Chairman of the Board and President, John V. Winfield. The Committee has delegated authority to manage the portfolio to the Company’s Chairman and President together with such assistants and management committees he may engage. The Committee has established investment guidelines for the Company’s investments. These guidelines presently include: (i) corporate equity securities should be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), NYSE MKT, NYSE Arca or the Nasdaq Stock Market (NASDAQ); (ii) the issuer of the listed securities should be in compliance with the listing standards of the respective National Securities Exchanges; and (iii) investment in a particular issuer should not exceed 10% of the market value of the total portfolio. The investment policies do not require the Company to divest itself of investments, which initially meet these guidelines but subsequently fail to meet one or more of the investment criteria. Non-conforming investments require the approval of the Securities Investment Committee. The Committee has in the past approved non-conforming investments and may in the future approve non-conforming investments. The Securities Investment Committee may modify these guidelines from time to time.

 

The Company may also invest, with the approval of the Securities Investment Committee, in unlisted securities, such as convertible notes, through private placements including private equity investment funds. Those investments in non-marketable securities are carried at cost on the Company’s balance sheet as part of other investments and reviewed for impairment on a periodic basis. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had other investments of $15,661,000.

 

As part of its investment strategies, the Company may assume short positions in marketable securities. Short sales are used by the Company to potentially offset normal market risks undertaken in the course of its investing activities or to provide additional return opportunities. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had obligations for securities sold (equities short) of $731,000.

In addition, the Company may utilize margin for its marketable securities purchases through the use of standard margin agreements with national brokerage firms. The use of available leverage is guided by the business judgment of management and is subject to any internal investment guidelines, which may be imposed by the Securities Investment Committee. The margin used by the Company may fluctuate depending on market conditions. The use of leverage could be viewed as risky and the market values of the portfolio may be subject to large fluctuations. As of June 30, 2012, the Company had a margin balance of $1,729,000 and incurred $587,000 and $547,000 in margin interest expense during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

As Chairman of the Securities Investment Committee, the Company’s President and Chief Executive officer, John V. Winfield, directs the investment activity of the Company in public and private markets pursuant to authority granted by the Board of Directors. Mr. Winfield also serves as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Santa Fe and Portsmouth and oversees the investment activity of those companies. Depending on certain market conditions and various risk factors, the Chief Executive Officer, his family, Santa Fe and Portsmouth may, at times, invest in the same companies in which the Company invests. The Company encourages such investments because it places personal resources of the Chief Executive Officer and his family members, and the resources of Santa Fe and Portsmouth, at risk in connection with investment decisions made on behalf of the Company.

 

Further information with respect to investment in marketable securities and other investments of the Company is set forth in Management Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section and Notes 6 and 7 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

Seasonality

 

The Hotel’s operations historically have been seasonal. Like most hotels in the San Francisco area, the Hotel generally maintains higher occupancy and room rates during the first and second quarters of its fiscal year (July 1 through December 31) than it does in the third and fourth quarters (January 1 through June 30). These seasonal patterns can be expected to cause fluctuations in the quarterly revenues from the Hotel.

 

Competition - Hotel

 

The hotel industry is highly competitive. Competition is based on a number of factors, most notably convenience of location, brand affiliation, price, range of services and guest amenities or accommodations offered and quality of customer service. Competition is often specific to the individual market in which properties are located.

 

The Hotel is located in an area of intense competition from other hotels in the Financial District and San Francisco in general. The Hotel is somewhat limited by having only 15,000 square feet of meeting room space. Other hotels, with greater meeting room space, may have a competitive advantage by being able to attract larger groups and small conventions. Increased competition from new hotels, or hotels that have been recently undergone substantial renovation, could have an adverse effect on occupancy, average daily rate (“ADR”) and room revenue per available room (“RevPar”) and put pressure on the Partnership to make additional capital improvements to the Hotel to keep pace with the competition.

 

The Hotel’s target market is business travelers, leisure customers and tourists, and small to medium size groups. Since the Hotel operates in an upper scale segment of the market, we also face increased competition from providers of less expensive accommodations, such as limited service hotels, during periods of economic downturn when leisure and business travelers become more sensitive to room rates. Like other hotels, we have experienced some decrease in some higher rated corporate and business travel as many companies have cut their travel and entertainment budgets in response to economic conditions. As a result, there could be added pressure on all hotels in the San Francisco market to lower room rates in an effort to maintain occupancy levels during such periods. Although we have seen some signs of recovery in the San Francisco market during the 2012 fiscal year, like all hotels, we will remain subject to the uncertain domestic and global economic environment.

In this highly competitive market, we continue with our efforts to upgrade our guest rooms and facilities and explore new and innovative ways to differentiate the Hotel from its competition. During fiscal 2012, we completed several projects to enhance the guest experience, including our new executive lounge on the 26th floor of the Hotel and the upgrading of the lobby and common areas of the Hotel. We have also made improvements to our restaurant facilities and food and beverage services and have upgraded internet connectivity throughout the Hotel and are providing more technological amenities for our guests. We continue to make the Hotel more energy efficient and have enhanced our recycling program to support the concept of a greener world while reducing our operating costs. The Hotel also became a groundbreaker in implementing Hilton’s Huanying (“Welcome”) program which features a tailored experience for Chinese travelers. We have also taken important steps to further develop our ties to the local Chinese community and the City as part of being a good corporate citizen and to promote new business.

 

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on cultivating more international business, especially from China, and capturing a greater percentage of the higher rated business, leisure and group travel. During the last twelve months, we have seen improvement in business and leisure travel. If that trend in the San Francisco market and the hotel industry continues, it should translate into an increase in room revenues and profitability. However, like all hotels, it will remain subject to the uncertain domestic and global economic environment.

 

The Hotel is also subject to certain operating risks common to all of the hotel industry, which could adversely impact performance. These risks include:

 

·Competition for guests and meetings from other hotels including competition and pricing pressure from internet wholesalers and distributors;

 

·increases in operating costs, including wages, benefits, insurance, property taxes and energy, due to inflation and other factors, which may not be offset in the future by increased room rates;

 

·labor strikes, disruptions or lock outs;

 

·dependence on demand from business and leisure travelers, which may fluctuate and is seasonal;

 

·increases in energy costs, cost of fuel, airline fares and other expenses related to travel, which may negatively affect traveling;

 

·terrorism, terrorism alerts and warnings, wars and other military actions, pandemics or other medical events or warnings which may result in decreases in business and leisure travel; and

 

·adverse effects of downturns and recessionary conditions in international, national and/or local economies and market conditions.

 

Competition – Rental Properties

 

The ownership, operation and leasing of multifamily rental properties are highly competitive. The Company competes with domestic and foreign financial institutions, other REITs, life insurance companies, pension trusts, trust funds, partnerships and individual investors. In addition, The Company competes for tenants in markets primarily on the basis of property location, rent charged, services provided and the design and condition of improvements. The Company also competes with other quality apartment owned by public and private companies. The number of competitive multifamily properties in a particular market could adversely affect the Company’s ability to lease its multifamily properties, as well as the rents it is able to charge. In addition, other forms of residential properties, including single family housing and town homes, provide housing alternatives to potential residents of quality apartment communities or potential purchasers of for-sale condominium units. The Company competes for residents in its apartment communities based on resident service and amenity offerings and the desirability of the Company’s locations. Resident leases at the Company’s apartment communities are priced competitively based on market conditions, supply and demand characteristics, and the quality and resident service offerings of its communities.

Environmental Matters

 

In connection with the ownership of the Hotel, the Company is subject to various federal, state and local laws, ordinances and regulations relating to environmental protection. Under these laws, a current or previous owner or operator of real estate may be liable for the costs of removal or remediation of certain hazardous or toxic substances on, under or in such property. Such laws often impose liability without regard to whether the owner or operator knew of, or was responsible for, the presence of hazardous or toxic substances.

 

Environmental consultants retained by the Partnership or its lenders conducted updated Phase I environmental site assessments in fiscal year ended June 30, 2008 on the Hotel property. These Phase I assessments relied, in part, on Phase I environmental assessments prepared in connection with the Partnership’s first mortgage loan obtained in July 2005. Phase I assessments are designed to evaluate the potential for environmental contamination on properties based generally upon site inspections, facility personnel interviews, historical information and certain publicly-available databases; however, Phase I assessments will not necessarily reveal the existence or extent of all environmental conditions, liabilities or compliance concerns at the properties.

 

Although the Phase I assessments and other environmental reports we have reviewed disclose certain conditions on our properties and the use of hazardous substances in operation and maintenance activities that could pose a risk of environmental contamination or liability, we are not aware of any environmental liability that we believe would have a material adverse effect on our business, financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

 

The Company believes that the Hotel and its rental properties are in compliance, in all material respects, with all federal, state and local environmental ordinances and regulations regarding hazardous or toxic substances and other environmental matters, the violation of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company. The Company has not received written notice from any governmental authority of any material noncompliance, liability or claim relating to hazardous or toxic substances or other environmental matters in connection with any of its present properties.

 

EMPLOYEES

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had a total of 8 full-time employees in its corporate office. Effective July 2002, the Company entered into a client service agreement with Insperity, a professional employer organization serving as an off-site, full service human resource department for its corporate office. Insperity personnel management services are delivered by entering into a co-employment relationship with the Company’s employees. There are also approximately 32 employees at the Company’s properties outside of the State of California that are subject to similar co-employment relationships with Insperity. The employees and the Company are not party to any collective bargaining agreement, and the Company believes that its employee relations are satisfactory.

 

Employees of Justice and management of the Hotel are not unionized and the Company believes that their relationships with the Hotel are satisfactory and consistent with the market in San Francisco. Most of the non-management employees of the Hotel are part of three different unions: (1) Local 2 of the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union (“UNITE HERE”); (2) Stationary Engineers, Local 39; and (3) the Teamsters Local 856. The Hotel’s contract with Local 2 expired on August 14, 2009. The Parties met on February 28, 2012 and negotiated the terms of a successor collective bargaining agreement. The parties reached a tentative agreement on that date and are awaiting receipt of the final, ratified agreement from Local 2. The new agreement is scheduled to expire on August 14, 2013.

 

The Hotel has two other labor agreements. An extension agreement with the Stationary Engineers, Local 39 was agreed to in May 2011 with an expiration date of July 31, 2013. A new contract with Teamsters Local 856 was reached on March 10, 2011 with an expiration date of December 31, 2012. Local 856 is required to send notice of intent to negotiate an agreement 60 days before its expiration.

In the opinion of management, the Hotel is adequately covered by insurance.

The Partnership had a $2,500,000 unsecured revolving line of credit facility with a bank that was to mature on April 30, 2010. Effective April 29, 2010, the Partnership obtained a modification from the bank which converted its revolving line of credit facility to a term loan.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company owned approximately 79.9% of the common shares of its subsidiary, Santa Fe and Santa Fe 68.8% owned approximately 68.8% of the common shares of Portsmouth Square, Inc. InterGroup also directly owns approximately 12.5% of the common shares of Portsmouth. The Company's principal sources of revenue continue to be derived from the general and limited partnership interests of its subsidiary, Portsmouth, in the Justice Investors limited partnership (“Justice” or the “Partnership”), rental income from its investments in multi-family real estate properties and income received from investment of its cash and securities assets.

 

Portsmouth has a 50.0% limited partnership interest in Justice and serves as the Managing General partner of Justice. Evon Corporation (“Evon”) serves as the other general partner. Justice owns a 543 room hotel property located at 750 Kearny Street, San Francisco, California 94108, known as the “Hilton San Francisco Financial District” (the “Hotel”) and related facilities, including a five-level underground parking garage. The financial statements of Justice have been consolidated with those of the Company. See Note 2 to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

 

The Hotel is operated by the Partnership as a full service Hilton brand hotel pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation. The term of the Agreement is for a period of 15 years commencing on January 12, 2006, with an option to extend the license term for another five years, subject to certain conditions. Justice also has a Management Agreement with Prism Hospitality L.P. (“Prism”) to perform the day-to-day management functions of the Hotel.

 

The parking garage that is part of the Hotel property is managed by Ace Parking pursuant to a contract with the Partnership. Justice also leases a portion of the lobby level of the Hotel to a day spa operator. Portsmouth also receives management fees as a general partner of Justice for its services in overseeing and managing the Partnership’s assets. Those fees are eliminated in consolidation.

 

In addition to the operations of the Hotel, the Company also generates income from the ownership and management of real estate. Properties include seventeen apartment complexes, two commercial real estate properties, and two single-family houses as strategic investments. The properties are located throughout the United States, but are concentrated in Texas and Southern California. The Company also has investments in unimproved real property. All of the Company’s residential rental properties in California are managed by professional third party property management companies and the rental properties outside of California are managed by the Company. The commercial real estate in California is also managed by the Company.

 

The Company acquires its investments in real estate and other investments utilizing cash, securities or debt, subject to approval or guidelines of the Board of Directors. The Company also invests in income-producing instruments, equity and debt securities and will consider other investments if such investments offer growth or profit potential.

 

Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2011

 

The Company had net loss of $671,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 compared to net income of $10,443,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. The significant change is primarily attributable to the recording of an unrealized gain of $11,422,000 in fiscal 2011 related to the preferred stock of Comstock received by the Company in exchange for debt as part of the debt restructuring, losses from investing activities in the current year, partially offset by a significant improvement in hotel operations and an improvement in real estate operations.

 

19
 

 

The Company had net income from hotel operations of $3,913,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, compared to net income of $512,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. The significant increase in net income from hotel operations is primarily attributable to a $5,054,000 increase in room revenues and a $1,305,000 decrease in depreciation and amortization expense as many of the furniture and fixture improvements from the renovation of the Hotel reached full deprecation during fiscal 2011.

 

The following table sets forth a more detailed presentation of Hotel operations for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

For the years ended June 30,  2012   2011 
Hotel revenues:          
Hotel rooms  $32,893,000   $27,839,000 
Food and beverage   5,779,000    5,028,000 
Garage   2,765,000    2,599,000 
Other operating departments   1,025,000    816,000 
Total hotel revenues   42,462,000    36,282,000 
Operating expenses excluding interest, depreciation and amortization   (33,465,000)   (29,299,000)
Operating income before interest, depreciation and amortization   8,997,000    6,983,000 
Interest   (2,724,000)   (2,806,000)
Depreciation and amortization   (2,360,000)   (3,665,000)
           
Net income from hotel operations  $3,913,000   $512,000 

 

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the Hotel generated operating income of $8,997,000 before interest, depreciation and amortization, on total operating revenues of $42,462,000 compared to operating income of $6,983,000 before interest, depreciation and amortization, on operating revenues of $36,282,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. The increase in income from Hotel operations is primarily attributable to increases in room, food and beverage, and other revenues in the current year, partially offset by an increase in operating expenses due to higher labor costs and increased staffing to improve guest satisfaction as well as greater franchise and management fees which are based on a percentage of revenues.

 

Room revenues increased by $5,054,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 compared to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 and food and beverage revenues increased by $751,000 for the same period. The increase in room revenues was primarily attributable to a significant increase in average daily room rates during fiscal 2012 as the Hotel continued to see an increase in higher rated leisure, corporate and group business travel, which also resulted in higher in food and beverage revenues.

 

The following table sets forth the average daily room rate, average occupancy percentage and room revenue per available room (“RevPar”) of the Hotel for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

Fiscal Year
ended June 30,
  Average
Daily Rate
   Average
Occupancy %
   RevPar 
             
2012  $191    87%  $166 
2011  $163    86%  $140 

 

The operations of the Hotel experienced an increase in the higher rated business, leisure and group travel segments in the fiscal 2012 as the hospitality industry in the San Francisco market continued to show signs of recovery. As a result, the Hotel’s average daily rate increased significantly by $28 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 compared to the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. The increase in occupancy of 1% was due to continued increased demand for hotel rooms in San Francisco and the Hotel’s ability to capture a greater share of those rooms within its market set. Due to that increased demand, the Hotel was able to reduce the amount of discounted Internet business that it was forced to take in prior years to maintain occupancy in a very competitive market and recessionary economic conditions. As a result, the Hotel was able to achieve a RevPar number that was $26 higher than fiscal 2011.

During the past couple of years, we have seen our management team guide our Hotel through a difficult economic period by taking bold steps to reduce expenses and implement innovative strategies in order to improve operations and enhance our competitiveness in the market. As a result, we were well positioned to take advantage of the gradual recovery that took place in the San Francisco market. We saw a significant improvement in room rates as the Hotel was able to expand its share of the higher rated business and leisure travel which increased our operating revenues and profitability. Those results made it possible for Justice Investors to declare its first limited partnership distribution since September 2008 as the Partnership made a total distribution in the amount of $1,000,000 in December 2011, of which Portsmouth received $500,000. The general partners of Justice will continue to monitor and review the operations and financial results of the Hotel and to set the amount of any future distributions that may be appropriate based on operating results, cash flows and other factors, including establishment of reasonable reserves for debt payments and operating contingencies.

 

We will continue in our efforts to upgrade our guest rooms and facilities and explore new and innovative ways to differentiate the Hotel from its competition. During fiscal 2012, we completed several projects to enhance the guest experience, including our new executive lounge on the 26th floor of the Hotel and the upgrading of the lobby and common areas of the Hotel. We have also made improvements to our restaurant facilities and food and beverage services and have upgraded internet connectivity throughout the Hotel and are providing more technological amenities for our guests. We continue to make the Hotel more energy efficient and have enhanced our recycling program to support the concept of a greener world while reducing our operating costs. The Hotel also became a groundbreaker in implementing Hilton’s Huanying (“Welcome”) program which features a tailored experience for Chinese travelers. We have also taken important steps to further develop our ties to the local Chinese community and the City as part of being a good corporate citizen and to promote new business.

 

Moving forward, we will continue to focus on cultivating more international business, especially from China, and capturing a greater percentage of the higher rated business, leisure and group travel. During the last twelve months, we have seen improvement in business and leisure travel. If that trend in the San Francisco market and the hotel industry continues, it should translate into an increase in room revenues and profitability. However, like all hotels, it will remain subject to the uncertain domestic and global economic environment.

 

While operating in a competitive rental market, real estate operations improved modestly. The Company had real estate revenues of $14,537,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 compared with revenues of $13,571,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. The increase in rental revenues occurred primarily in the properties located outside of California, particularly in Texas, while the California properties remained relatively consistent with the exception of the new California property purchased in April 2011, where the Company had rental revenues for full year during fiscal 2012 versus only two months in fiscal 2011. Real estate operating expenses increased to $7,885,000 from $7,349,000 as the result of the increase in occupancy and rental revenue and partially as result of having a full year of expenses related to the new property purchased in April 2011. Depreciation expense related to the Company’s real estate operations decreased by approximately $552,000 from the prior comparable year primarily as the result of a one-time depreciation expense catch-up adjustment of $737,000 recorded in fiscal 2011 due to the reclass of the Company’s held for sale property from discontinued operations to continuing operations. Management continues to review and analyze the Company’s real estate operations to improve occupancy and rental rates and to reduce expenses and improve efficiencies.

 

In January 2012, the Company sold its 24-unit apartment complex located in Los Angeles, California for $4,370,000. The Company realized a gain on the sale of real estate of approximately $1,710,000 and received net proceeds of $4,111,000 from the sale after selling costs. The Company paid off the related mortgage note payable balance of $1,504,000. In the prior comparable year, the Company sold its 132-unit apartment complex located in San Antonio, Texas for $5,500,000 and recognized a gain on the sale of real estate of $3,290,000 and received net proceeds of $5,291,000 from the sale after selling costs. The Company paid off of the related outstanding mortgage note payable of $3,215,000. The net proceeds were placed with a third party accommodator for the purpose of executing a Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange for another property. In April 2011, the Company purchased a 9-unit beachside apartment complex located in Marina Del Rey, California for $4,000,000 to effectuate that exchange. The operations of these properties and the gains on the sales of real estate are included under Discontinued Operations in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The Company had a net loss on marketable securities of $4,444,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 as compared to a net gain on marketable securities of $2,675,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. For the year ended June 30, 2012, the Company had a net realized loss of $2,628,000 and a net unrealized loss of $1,816,000. For the year ended June 30, 2011, the Company had a net realized gain of $47,000 and a net unrealized gain of $2,628,000. Gains and losses on marketable securities and other investments may fluctuate significantly from period to period in the future and could have a significant impact on the Company’s net income. However, the amount of gain or loss on marketable securities and other investments for any given period may have no predictive value and variations in amount from period to period may have no analytical value. For a more detailed description of the composition of the Company’s marketable securities please see the Marketable Securities section below.

 

During the year ended June 30, 2012, the Company had an unrealized loss of $436,000 related to other investments compared to an unrealized gain of $11,565,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011. The significant difference is due to an unrealized gain of $11,422,000 related to the Company’s Comstock investment in the prior comparable year. Comstock had undergone a restructuring which resulted in the unrealized gain for the Company.

 

During the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company performed an impairment analysis of its other investments and determined that one of its investments had other than temporary impairment and recorded impairment losses of $917,000 and $976,000, for each respective period.

 

Dividend and interest income decreased to $1,251,000 for the year ended June 30, 2012 from $1,540,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011 primarily as the result of the decreased investment in income yielding instruments.

 

The Company and its subsidiaries, Portsmouth and Santa Fe, compute and file income tax returns and prepare discrete income tax provisions for financial reporting. Since Portsmouth consolidates Justice (Hotel) for financial reporting purposes and is not taxed on its 50% non-controlling interest in the Hotel, variability in the tax provision results from the relative significance of the non-controlling interest and the magnitude of the pretax income or loss at the Company and its two principal subsidiaries. The income tax benefit (expense) during the year ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 represents income tax benefit (expense) of Intergroup and its subsidiary, Portsmouth.

 

MARKETABLE SECURITIES

 

As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had investments in marketable equity securities of $8,981,000 and $19,438,000, respectively. The following table shows the composition of the Company’s marketable securities portfolio by selected industry groups as:

The Company’s investment portfolio is diversified with 40 different equity positions. The Company holds one equity security that comprises more than 10% of the equity value of the portfolio. The security represents 52.4% of the portfolio and consists of the common stock of Comstock Mining, Inc. (“Comstock” - NYSE MKT: LODE) which is included in the basic materials industry group. The amount of the Company’s investment in any particular issuer may increase or decrease, and additions or deletions to its securities portfolio may occur, at any time. While it is the internal policy of the Company to limit its initial investment in any single equity to less than 10% of its total portfolio value, that investment could eventually exceed 10% as a result of equity appreciation or reduction of other positions. A significant percentage of the portfolio consists of common stock in Comstock that was obtained through dividend payments by Comstock on its 7.5% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock. Marketable securities are stated at fair value as determined by the most recently traded price of each security at the balance sheet date.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

 

The Company’s cash flows are primarily generated from its Hotel operations, and general partner management fees and limited partnership distributions from Justice Investors, its real estate operations and from the investment of its cash in marketable securities and other investments.

 

Following the temporary suspension of operations in May 2005 for major renovations, the Hotel started, and continues, to generate positive cash flows from its operations. As a result, Justice was able to pay some limited partnership distributions in fiscal years 2008 and 2009. However, due to the significant downturn in the San Francisco hotel market beginning in September 2008 and the continued weakness in domestic and international economies, no Partnership distributions were paid in fiscal 2011 and 2010. During such periods, the Company had to depend more on the revenues generated from the investment of its cash and marketable securities and from its general partner management fees. Since we have seen significant improvement in the operations of the Hotel, and the San Francisco market in general, Justice was in a position to pay a limited partnership distribution in December 2011 in an aggregate amount of $1,000,000, of which Portsmouth received $500,000. The general partners of Justice will continue to monitor and review the operations and financial results of the Hotel and to set the amount of any future distributions that may be appropriate based on operating results, cash flows and other factors, including establishment of reasonable reserves for debt payments and operating contingencies.

 

The new Justice Compensation Agreement that became effective on December 1, 2008, when Portsmouth assumed the role of managing general partner of Justice, has provided additional cash flows to the Company. Under the new Compensation Agreement, Portsmouth is now entitled to 80% of the minimum base fee to be paid to the general partners of $285,000, while under the prior agreement Portsmouth was entitled to receive only 20% of the minimum base fee. As a result of increases in Hotel gross revenues in fiscal 2012, total general partner fees paid to Portsmouth for the year ended June 30, 2012 increased to $366,000, compared to $323,000 for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

To meet its substantial financial commitments for the renovation and transition of the Hotel to a Hilton, Justice had to rely on borrowings to meet its obligations. On July 27, 2005, Justice entered into a first mortgage loan with The Prudential Insurance Company of America in a principal amount of $30,000,000 (the “Prudential Loan”). The term of the Prudential Loan is for 120 months at a fixed interest rate of 5.22% per annum. The Prudential Loan calls for monthly installments of principal and interest in the amount of approximately $165,000, calculated on a 30-year amortization schedule. The Loan is collateralized by a first deed of trust on the Partnership’s Hotel property, including all improvements and personal property thereon and an assignment of all present and future leases and rents. The Prudential Loan is without recourse to the limited and general partners of Justice. The principal balance of the Prudential Loan was $26,599,000 as of June 30, 2012.

 

On March 27, 2007, Justice entered into a second mortgage loan with Prudential (the “Second Prudential Loan”) in a principal amount of $19,000,000. The term of the Second Prudential Loan is for 100 months and matures on August 5, 2015, the same date as the first Prudential Loan. The Second Prudential Loan is at a fixed interest rate of 6.42% per annum and calls for monthly installments of principal and interest in the amount of $119,000, calculated on a 30-year amortization schedule. The Second Prudential Loan is collateralized by a second deed of trust on the Partnership’s Hotel property, including all improvements and personal property thereon and an assignment of all present and future leases and rents. The Second Prudential Loan is also without recourse to the limited and general partners of Justice. The principal balance of the Second Prudential Loan was $17,722,000 as of June 30, 2012.

 

Effective April 29, 2010, the Partnership obtained a modification of its $2,500,000 unsecured revolving line of credit facility with East West Bank that was to mature on April 30, 2010, and converted that line of credit facility to an unsecured term loan. The modification provides that Justice will pay the $2,500,000 balance on its line of credit facility over a period of four years, to mature on April 30, 2014. This term loan calls for monthly principal and interest payments of $41,000, calculated on a nine-year amortization schedule, with interest only from May 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010. Pursuant to the modification, the annual floating interest rate was reduced by 0.5% to the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus 2.5% (with a minimum floor rate of 5.0% per annum). The modification provides for new financial covenants that include specific financial ratios and a return to minimum profitability after June 30, 2011. Management believes that the Partnership has the ability to meet the specific covenants and the Partnership was in compliance with the covenants as of June 30, 2012. As of June 30, 2012, the interest rate was 5.75% and the outstanding balance was $1,702,000.

Despite an uncertain economy, the Hotel has continued to generate positive cash flows. While the debt service requirements related to the two Prudential loans, as well as the term loan to pay off the line of credit, may create some additional risk for the Company and its ability to generate cash flows in the future, management believes that cash flows from the operations of the Hotel and the garage will continue to be sufficient to meet all of the Partnership’s current and future obligations and financial requirements. Management also believes that there is sufficient equity in the Hotel assets to support future borrowings, if necessary, to fund any new capital improvements and other requirements.

 

In January 2012, the Company sold its 24-unit apartment complex located in Los Angeles, California for $4,370,000. The Company realized a gain on the sale of real estate of $1,710,000 and received net proceeds of $4,111,000 from the sale after selling costs. The Company paid off the related mortgage note payable balance of $1,504,000.

 

In December 2011, the Company refinanced its $926,000 mortgage note payable on its 12-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year mortgage in the amount of $2,095,000. The interest rate on the new loan is fixed at 4.25% per annum for the first 5 years and variable for the remaining 5 years, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in January 2022. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $1,122,000 from the refinancing.

 

In January 2011, the Company sold its 132-unit apartment complex located in San Antonio, Texas for $5,500,000 and recognized a gain on the sale of real estate of $3,290,000. The Company received net proceeds of $2,030,000 after selling costs and the pay-off of the related outstanding mortgage note payable of $3,215,000. The proceeds were placed with a third party accommodator for the purpose of executing a Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange for another property. In April 2011, the Company purchased a 9-unit beachside apartment complex located in Marina Del Rey, California for $4,000,000. As part of the purchase, the Company obtained a 10-year mortgage note payable in the amount of $1,487,000. The interest rate on the loan is fixed at 5.60% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in May 2021.

 

In February 2011, the Company refinanced its $715,000 adjustable rate mortgage note payable on its 9-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year fixed rate mortgage in the amount of $1,265,000. The interest rate on the new loan is fixed at 5.89% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in March 2021. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $367,000 from the refinancing.

 

In February 2011, the Company refinanced its $958,000 adjustable rate mortgage note payable on its 14-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year fixed rate mortgage in the amount of $1,855,000.

The Company received net proceeds of approximately $687,000 from the refinancing.

 

In December 2010, the Company modified its $5,932,000 mortgage note payable on the property located in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to the modification of the mortgage note, the Company paid a fixed rate of 6.16%. Upon modification, the interest rate was based upon LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) plus 3.5%. Concurrent to the modification of the note, the Company entered into a rate swap agreement in order to settle the variable rate (i.e., LIBOR) into a fixed rate of 1.35%, thereby allowing the Company to pay a total fixed interest rate of 4.85%. The swap agreement matures in May 2013. A swap is a contractual agreement to exchange interest rate payments. Under the swap agreement, the Company agrees to pay the bank (counterparty) a fixed rate and the bank agrees to pay the Company a floating rate. The interest rate swap agreement is being measured at fair value, but was not designated by the Company as a cash flow hedge. Should the Company terminate the swap contract prematurely, it would be required to pay the fair value of the swap valued at $60,000 as of June 30, 2012, which is recorded as a liability by the Company under “accounts payable and other liabilities” in the consolidated balance sheet. The change in the fair value of the instrument is recognized and recorded in the “net unrealized gain (loss) on other investments and derivative instruments” in the consolidated statement of operations.

The Company received net proceeds of approximately $2,078,000 from the refinancing.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

The Company has no material off balance sheet arrangements.

 

IMPACT OF INFLATION

 

Hotel room rates are typically impacted by supply and demand factors, not inflation, since rental of a hotel room is usually for a limited number of nights. Room rates can be, and usually are, adjusted to account for inflationary cost increases. Since Prism has the power and ability under the terms of its management agreement to adjust hotel room rates on an ongoing basis, there should be minimal impact on partnership revenues due to inflation. Partnership revenues are also subject to interest rate risks, which may be influenced by inflation. For the two most recent fiscal years, the impact of inflation on the Company's income is not viewed by management as material.

 

The Company's residential rental properties provide income from short-term operating leases and no lease extends beyond one year. Rental increases are expected to offset anticipated increased property operating expenses.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Critical accounting policies are those that are most significant to the portrayal of our financial position and results of operations and require judgments by management in order to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts in our consolidated financial statements. We evaluate our estimates on an on-going basis, including those related to the consolidation of our subsidiaries, to our revenues, allowances for bad debts, accruals, asset impairments, other investments, income taxes and commitments and contingencies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities. The actual results may differ from these estimates or our estimates may be affected by different assumptions or conditions.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of
The Intergroup Corporation:

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of The InterGroup Corporation and its subsidiaries (the Company) as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, shareholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended June 30, 2012. The Company’s management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of The InterGroup Corporation and its subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended June 30, 2012 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

THE INTERGROUP CORPORATION

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 - BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND PRACTICES:

 

Description of the Business

 

The InterGroup Corporation, a Delaware corporation, (“InterGroup” or the “Company”) was formed to buy, develop, operate and dispose of real property and to engage in various investment activities to benefit the Company and its shareholders.

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company had the power to vote 83.9% of the voting shares of Santa Fe Financial Corporation (“Santa Fe”), a public company (OTCBB: SFEF). This percentage includes the power to vote an approximately 4% interest in the common stock in Santa Fe owned by the Company’s Chairman and President pursuant to a voting trust agreement entered into on June 30, 1998.

 

Santa Fe’s revenue is primarily generated through the management of its 68.8% owned subsidiary, Portsmouth Square, Inc. (“Portsmouth”), a public company (OTCBB: PRSI). InterGroup also directly owns approximately 12.5% of the common stock of Portsmouth. Portsmouth has a 50.0% limited partnership interest in Justice Investors (“Justice”, “the Partnership” or “the Hotel”) and serves as one of the two general partners. The other general partner, Evon Corporation (“Evon”), served as the managing general partner until December 1, 2008 at which time Portsmouth assumed the role of managing general partner. As discussed in Note 2, the financial statements of Justice are consolidated with those of the Company.

 

Justice owns a 543-room hotel property located at 750 Kearny Street, San Francisco California, known as the Hilton San Francisco Financial District (the Hotel) and related facilities including a five level underground parking garage. The Hotel is operated by the partnership as a full service Hilton brand hotel pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement with Hilton Hotels Corporation. Justice also has a Management Agreement with Prism Hospitality L.P. (Prism) to perform the day-to-day management functions of the Hotel.

 

Justice leased the parking garage to Evon through September 30, 2008. Effective October 1, 2008, Justice and Evon entered into an Installment Sale Agreement whereby Justice purchased all of Evon’s right, title, and interest in the remaining term of its lease of the parking garage, which was to expire on November 30, 2010, and other related assets. Justice also agreed to assume Evon’s contract with Ace Parking Management, Inc. (“Ace Parking”) for the management of the garage and any other liabilities related to the operation of the garage commencing October 1, 2008. The management agreement with Ace Parking was extended for another 62 months, effective November 1, 2010. The Partnership also leases a day spa on the lobby level to Tru Spa. Portsmouth also receives management fees as a general partner of Justice for its services in overseeing and managing the Partnership’s assets. Those fees are eliminated in consolidation.

 

Due to the temporary closing of the Hotel to undergo major renovations from May 2005 until January 2006 to transition and reposition the Hotel from a Holiday Inn to a Hilton, and the substantial depreciation and amortization expenses resulting from the renovations and operating losses incurred as the Hotel ramped up operations after reopening, Justice has recorded net losses. These losses were anticipated and planned for as part of the Partnership’s renovation and repositioning plan for Hotel and management considers those net losses to be temporary. The Hotel has been generating positive cash flows from operations since June 2006. For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Partnership reversed that trend as net income was $3,913,000 and $512,000, respectively. Hotel operations improved significantly during the last two fiscal years and depreciation and amortization expenses decreased as many of the furniture and fixture improvements from the renovation of the Hotel reached full deprecation during the fiscal 2011. Management believes that the revenues expected to be generated from the Hotel, garage and the Partnership’s leases will be sufficient to meet all of the Partnership’s current and future obligations and financial requirements. Management also believes that there is significant equity in the Hotel to support additional borrowings, if necessary.

 

33
 

 

In addition to the operations of the Hotel, the Company also generates income from the ownership of real estate. Properties include apartment complexes, commercial real estate, and two single-family houses as strategic investments. The properties are located throughout the United States, but are concentrated in Texas and Southern California. The Company also has investments in unimproved real property. The Company’s residential rental properties located in California are managed by a professional third party property management company.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all controlled subsidiaries. All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated.

 

Investment in Hotel, Net

 

The Hotel property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Building improvements are being depreciated on a straight-line basis over their useful lives ranging from 3 to 39 years. Furniture, fixtures, and equipment are being depreciated on a straight-line basis over their useful lives ranging from 3 to 7 years.

 

Repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred. Costs of significant renewals and improvements are capitalized and depreciated over the shorter of its remaining estimated useful life or life of the asset. The cost of assets sold or retired and the related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts; any resulting gain or loss is included in other income (expenses).

 

The Company reviews property and equipment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If the carrying amount of the asset, including any intangible assets associated with that asset, exceeds its estimated undiscounted net cash flow, before interest, the Partnership will recognize an impairment loss equal to the difference between its carrying amount and its estimated fair value. If impairment is recognized, the reduced carrying amount of the asset will be accounted for as its new cost. For a depreciable asset, the new cost will be depreciated over the asset’s remaining useful life. Generally, fair values are estimated using discounted cash flow, replacement cost or market comparison analyses. The process of evaluating for impairment requires estimates as to future events and conditions, which are subject to varying market and economic factors. Therefore, it is reasonably possible that a change in estimate resulting from judgments as to future events could occur which would affect the recorded amounts of the property. No impairment losses were recorded for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

Investment in Real Estate, Net

 

Rental properties are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation of rental property is provided on the straight-line method based upon estimated useful lives of 5 to 40 years for buildings and improvements and 5 to 10 years for equipment. Expenditures for repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred and major improvements are capitalized.

 

The Company also reviews its rental property assets for impairment. No impairment losses on the investment in real estate have been recorded for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

The fair value of the tangible assets of an acquired property, which includes land, building and improvements, is determined by valuing the property as if they were vacant, and incorporates costs during the lease-up periods considering current market conditions and costs to execute similar leases such lost rental revenue and tenant improvements. The value of tangible assets are depreciated using straight-line method based upon the assets estimated useful lives.

 

The value of above or below market lease is based on the present value, using an interest rate which reflects the risks associated with the lease acquired, of the difference between (i) the contractual amounts to be paid pursuant to the in-place lease and (ii) management’s estimate of fair market lease rate for the corresponding in-place lease, measured over a period that the leases are expected to remain in effect. In connection with the Company’s acquisition of a real property during the year ended June 30, 2011, the Company recorded below-market lease liability of approximately $427,000 and amortizes such amount as an increase to rental income over period that the leases are expected to remain in effect, which range from 1 year to 15 years.

 

34
 

 

Investment in Marketable Securities

 

Marketable securities are stated at fair value as determined by the most recently traded price of each security at the balance sheet date. Marketable securities are classified as trading securities with all unrealized gains and losses on the Company's investment portfolio recorded through the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Other Investments, Net

 

Other investments include non-marketable securities (carried at cost, net of any impairments loss), non –marketable warrants (carried at fair value) and certain preferred securities, received in exchange for debt instruments, carried at a book basis, initially determined using the estimated fair value on the exchange date. The Company has no significant influence or control over the entities that issue these investments. These investments are reviewed on a periodic basis for other-than-temporary impairment. The Company reviews several factors to determine whether a loss is other-than-temporary. These factors include but are not limited to: (i) the length of time an investment is in an unrealized loss position, (ii) the extent to which fair value is less than cost, (iii) the financial condition and near term prospects of the issuer and (iv) our ability to hold the investment for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company recorded impairment losses related to other investments of $917,000 and $976,000, respectively.

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

The Company has investments in stock warrants and has entered into an interest rate swap, both of which are considered derivative instruments.

 

Derivative financial instruments consist of financial instruments or other contracts that contain a notional amount and one or more underlying (e.g. interest rate, security price or other variable), require no initial net investment and permit net settlement. Derivative financial instruments may be free-standing or embedded in other financial instruments. Further, derivative financial instruments are initially, and subsequently, measured at fair value on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.

 

For the investment in stock warrants, the Company used the Black-Scholes option valuation model to estimate the fair value these instruments which requires management to make significant assumptions including trading volatility, estimated terms, and risk free rates. Estimating fair values of derivative financial instruments requires the development of significant and subjective estimates that may, and are likely to, change over the duration of the instrument with related changes in internal and external market factors. In addition, option-based models are highly volatile and sensitive to changes in the trading market price of the underlying common stock, which has a high-historical volatility. Since derivative financial instruments are initially and subsequently carried at fair values, the Company’s consolidated statement of operations will reflect the volatility in these estimate and assumption changes.

 

The Company measures the interest rate swap agreement at fair value at the end of each reporting period. The Company opted not designate the interest rate swap agreement as a cash flow hedge; hence, the change in fair value of the interest rate swap agreement is reported as unrealized gain or loss in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents consist of highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased and are carried at cost, which approximates fair value.

 

35
 

  

Restricted Cash

 

Restricted cash is comprised of amounts held by lenders for payment of real estate taxes, insurance, replacement reserves for the operating properties and tenant security deposits that are invested in certificates of deposit.

 

Other Assets, Net

 

Other assets include accounts receivable, prepaid insurance, loan fees, franchise fees, license fees, inventory and other miscellaneous assets. Loan fees are stated at cost and amortized over the term of the loan using the effective interest method. Franchise fees are stated at cost and amortized over the life of the agreement (15 years). License fees are stated at cost and amortized over 10 years.

 

Accounts receivable from the Hotel and rental property customers are carried at cost less an allowance for doubtful accounts that is based on management’s assessment of the collectability of accounts receivable. The Company extends unsecured credit to its customers but mitigates the associated credit risk by performing ongoing credit evaluations of its customers.

 

Due to Securities Broker

 

The Company may utilize margin for its marketable securities purchases through the use of standard margin agreements with national brokerage firms. Various securities brokers have advanced funds to the Company for the purchase of marketable securities under standard margin agreements. These advanced funds are recorded as a liability.

 

Obligation for Securities Sold

 

Obligation for securities sold represents the fair market value of shares sold with the promise to deliver that security at some future date and the fair market value of shares underlying the written call options with the obligation to deliver that security when and if the option is exercised. The obligation may be satisfied with current holdings of the same security or by subsequent purchases of that security. Unrealized gains and losses from changes in the obligation are included in the statement of operations.

 

Accounts Payable and Other Liabilities

 

Accounts payable and other liabilities include trade payables, advance deposits and other liabilities.

 

Treasury Stock

 

The Company records the acquisition of treasury stock under the cost method.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the “exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Accounting standards for fair value measurement establishes a hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company’s assumptions about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances. The hierarchy is broken down into three levels based on the observability of inputs as follows:

 

36
 

  

Level 1–inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2–inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the assets or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instruments.

 

Level 3–inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Room revenue is recognized on the date upon which a guest occupies a room and/or utilizes the Hotel’s services. Food and beverage revenues are recognized upon delivery. Garage revenue is recognized when a guest uses the garage space.

 

Rental revenue is recognized on the straight-line method of accounting whereby contractual rent payment increases are recognized evenly over the lease term, regardless of when the rent payments are received by Justice. The leases contain provisions for base rent plus a percentage of the lessees’ revenues, which are recognized when earned.

 

Revenue recognition from apartment rentals commences when an apartment unit is placed in service and occupied by a rent-paying tenant. Apartment units are leased on a short-term basis, with no lease extending beyond one year.

 

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. Advertising costs were $445,000 and $337,000 for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes are calculated under the liability method. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are based on differences between the financial statement and tax basis of assets and liabilities at the current enacted tax rates. Changes in deferred income tax assets and liabilities are included as a component of income tax expense. Changes in deferred income tax assets and liabilities attributable to changes in enacted tax rates are charged or credited to income tax expense in the period of enactment. Valuation allowances are established for certain deferred tax assets where realization is not likely.

 

Assets and liabilities are established for uncertain tax positions taken or positions expected to be taken in income tax returns when such positions are judged to not meet the “more-likely-than-not” threshold based on the technical merits of the positions.

 

Environmental Remediation Costs

 

Liabilities for environmental remediation costs are recorded and charged to expense when it is probable that obligations have been incurred and the amounts can be reasonably estimated. Recoveries of such costs are recognized when received. As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, there were no liabilities for environmental remediation.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. The computation of diluted income (loss) per share is similar to the computation of basic earnings per share except that the weighted-average number of common shares is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if potential dilutive common shares had been issued. The Company's only potentially dilutive common shares are stock options and restricted stock units (RSUs). As of June 30, 2012, the Company had 47,255 stock options and RSUs that were considered potentially dilutive common shares. As of June 30, 2011, the Company had 95,646 stock options and RSUs that were considered potentially dilutive common shares. The basic and diluted earnings per share were the same for the year ended June 30, 2012 because of the Company’s net loss from continuing operations.

 

37
 

  

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP) requires the use of estimates and assumptions regarding certain types of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses. Such estimates primarily relate to unsettled transactions and events as of the date of the financial statements. Accordingly, upon settlement, actual results may differ from estimated amounts.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain prior year balances have been reclassified to conform with the current year presentation.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-04 (ASU 2011-04), “Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs (International Financial Reporting Standard).” ASU 2011-04 attempts to improve the comparability of fair value measurements disclosed in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and IFRS. Amendments in ASU 2011-04 clarify the intent of the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements, as well as change certain measurement requirements and disclosures. ASU 2011-04 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2012 and has been applied on a prospective basis.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income.” ASU 2011-05 changes the way other comprehensive income (“OCI”) appears within the financial statements. Companies will be required to show net income, OCI and total comprehensive income in one continuous statement or in two separate but consecutive statements. Components of OCI may no longer be presented solely in the statement of changes in shareholders’ deficit. ASU 2011-05 will be effective for the Company beginning July 1, 2012. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had no components of Comprehensive Income other than Net Income (loss) itself.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-09, Compensation - Retirement Benefits - Multiemployer Plans (Subtopic 715-80) — Disclosures about an Employer's Participation in a Multiemployer Plan, which requires employers that participate in multiemployer pension plans to provide additional quantitative and qualitative disclosures in order to provide more information about an employer's involvement in multiemployer pension plans. Although the majority of the amendments in this ASU apply only to multiemployer pension plans, there are also amendments that require changes in disclosures for multiemployer plans that provide postretirement benefits other than pensions. The Company adopted this ASU on June 30, 2012. This ASU impacted the Company's disclosures only and did not have any impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

The disclosures required by this ASU are presented in Note 18 to the consolidated financial statements.

  

NOTE 2 - JUSTICE INVESTORS

 

On July 14, 2005, the FASB issued Staff Position (FSP) SOP 78-9-1, “Interaction of AICPA Statement of Position 78-9 and EITF Issue No. 04-5” which was codified into ASC Topic 910-810, “Real Estate – General – Consolidation”, to amend the guidance in AICPA Statement of Position 78-9, “Accounting for Investments in Real Estate Ventures” (SOP 78-9) to be consistent with the consensus in Emerging Issues Task Force Issue No. 04-5 “Determining Whether a General Partner, or General Partners as a Group, Controls a Limited Partnership or Similar Entity When the Limited Partners Have Certain Rights” which was codified into ASC 810-20, “Consolidation”, eliminated the concept of “important rights”(ASC Topic 970-810) and replaces it with the concepts of “kick out rights” and “substantive participating rights”. In accordance with guidance set forth in ASC Topic 970-20, Portsmouth has applied the principles of accounting applicable for investments in subsidiaries due to its substantial limited partnership interest and general partnership rights and has consolidated the financial statements of Justice with those of the Company effective as of July 1, 2006. For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the results of operations for Justice were consolidated with those of the Company.

 

38
 

 

On December 1, 2008, Portsmouth and Evon, as the two general partners of Justice, entered into a 2008 Amendment to the Limited Partnership Agreement (the “Amendment”) that provides for a change in the respective roles of the general partners. Pursuant to the Amendment, Portsmouth assumed the role of Managing General Partner and Evon continued on as the Co-General Partner of Justice. The Amendment was ratified by approximately 98% of the limited partnership interests. The Amendment also provides that future amendments to the Limited Partnership Agreement may be made only upon the consent of the general partners and at least seventy five percent (75%) of the interests of the limited partners. Consent of at least 75% of the interests of the limited partners will also be required to remove a general partner pursuant to the Amendment.

 

Effective November 30, 2010, the general and limited partners of Justice Investors entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership, which was approved and ratified by more than 98% of the limited partnership interests of Justice. The Partnership Agreement was amended and restated in its entirety to comply with the new provisions of the California Corporations Code known as the “Uniform Limited Partnership Act of 2008”. The amendment did not result in any material modifications of the rights or obligations of the general and limited partners.

 

Concurrent with the Amendment to the Limited Partnership Agreement, a new General Partner Compensation Agreement (the “Compensation Agreement”) was entered into on December 1, 2008, among Justice, Portsmouth and Evon to terminate and supersede all prior compensation agreement for the general partners. Pursuant to the Compensation Agreement, the general partners of Justice will be entitled to receive an amount equal to 1.5% of the gross annual revenues of the Partnership (as defined), less $75,000 to be used as a contribution toward the cost of Justice engaging an asset manager. In no event shall the annual compensation be less than a minimum base of approximately $285,000, with eighty percent (80%) of that amount being allocated to Portsmouth for its services as managing general partner and twenty percent (20%) allocated to Evon as the co-general partner. Compensation earned by the general partners in each calendar year in excess of the minimum base, will be payable in equal fifty percent (50%) shares to Portsmouth and Evon.

NOTE 5 – PROPERTY HELD FOR SALE AND DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

In January 2012, the Company sold its 24-unit apartment complex located in Los Angeles, California for $4,370,000. The Company realized a gain on the sale of real estate of $1,710,000 and received net proceeds of $4,111,000 from the sale after selling costs.

The Company received net proceeds of $2,030,000 after selling costs and the pay-off of the related outstanding mortgage note payable of $3,215,000. The proceeds were placed with a third party accommodator (included as part of other assets) for the purpose of executing a Section 1031 tax-deferred exchange for another property. In April 2011, the Company purchased a 9-unit beachside apartment complex located in Marina Del Rey, California for $4,000,000 to effectuate that exchange. As part of the purchase, the Company obtained a 10-year mortgage note payable in the amount of $1,487,000. The interest rate on the loan is fixed at 5.60% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in May 2021. As part of the purchase, the Company recorded an asset of $427,000 related to having in-place apartment leases and a $427,000 liability related to having in-place leases that were below market leases in a rent control environment. The asset will be amortized over 27.5 years and the liability over 15 years.

 

40
 

 

In June 2011, the Company re-evaluated one of its property’s that was previously classified as held for sale and concluded that the property no longer met the criteria for being classified as held for sale. As the result, the property was reclassified to operations and a depreciation catch-up of $726,000 was recorded in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

As of June 30, 2012, the Company did not have any property that was classified as held for sale.

 

The gain on the sale of real estate and the revenues and expenses from the operation of the properties that were sold are reported as income from discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations for the respective periods. The revenues and expenses are summarized as follows:

 

For the years ended June 30,  2012   2011

NOTE 7 – OTHER INVESTMENTS, NET

 

The Company may also invest, with the approval of the Securities Investment Committee and other Company guidelines, in private investment equity funds and other unlisted securities, such as convertible notes through private placements. Those investments in non-marketable securities are carried at cost on the Company’s balance sheet as part of other investments, net of other than temporary impairment losses.

 

Other investments, net consist of the following:

 

Type  June 30, 2012   June 30, 2011 
Preferred stock - Comstock, at cost  $13,231,000   $13,231,000 
Private equity hedge fund, at cost   1,879,000    2,736,000 
Corporate debt and equity instruments, at cost   269,000    569,000 
Warrants - at fair value   282,000    749,000 
   $15,661,000   $17,285,000 

 

On October 20, 2010, as part of a debt restructuring of one of its investments, the Company exchanged approximately $13,231,000 in notes, convertible notes and debt instruments that it held in Comstock Mining, Inc. (“Comstock” – now NYSE MKT: LODE) for 13,231 shares ($1,000 stated value) of newly created 7 1/2% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock (the “A-1 Preferred”) of Comstock. Prior to the exchange, those notes and convertible debt instruments had a carrying value of $1,809,000, net of impairment adjustments. The Company accounted for the transaction as an exchange of its debt securities and recorded the new instruments (A-1 Preferred) received based on their fair value. The Company estimated the fair value of the A-1 Preferred at $1,000 per share, which was the stated value of the instrument, for a total of $13,231,000. The fair value of the A-1 Preferred had a similar value to the Series B preferred stock financing (stated value of $1,000 per share) by which Comstock concurrently raised $35.7 million in new capital from other investors in October 2010. The Company recorded an unrealized gain of $11,422,000 related to the preferred stock received in exchange for debt as part of the debt restructuring. This unrealized gain is included in the net unrealized gain on other investments in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for the year ended June 30, 2011.

 

The Company’s Chairman and President also exchanged approximately $7,681,000 in notes and convertible notes held personally by him for 7,681 shares of A-1 Preferred. Together, the Company and Mr. Winfield will constitute all of the holders of the A-1 Preferred.

 

Each share of A-1 Preferred has a stated value of $1,000 per share and a liquidation and change of control preference equal to the stated value plus accrued and unpaid dividends. Commencing January 1, 2011, the holders are entitled to semi-annual dividends at a rate of 7.5% per annum, payable in cash, common stock, preferred stock or any combination of the foregoing, at the election of Comstock. At the holder’s election, each share of A-1 Preferred is convertible at a fixed conversion rate (subject to anti-dilution) into 1,536 shares of common stock of Comstock, therefore converting into common stock at a conversion price of $0.6510. Each share of A-1 Preferred will entitle the holder to vote with the holders of common stock as a single class on all matters submitted to the vote of the common stock (on an as converted basis) and, for purposes of voting only, each share of A-1 Preferred shall be entitled to five times the number of votes per common share to which it would otherwise be entitled. Each share of A-1 Preferred shall entitle its holder to one (1) vote in any matter submitted to vote of holders of Preferred Stock, voting as a separate class. The A-1 Preferred, in conjunction with the other series of newly created Preferred Stock of Comstock, also has certain rights requiring consent of the Preferred Stock holders for Comstock to take certain corporate and business actions. The holders will have registration rights with respect to the shares of common stock underlying the A-1 Preferred and also preemptive rights. The foregoing description of the A-1 Preferred and the specific terms of the A-1 Preferred is qualified in its entirety by reference to the provisions of the Series A Securities Purchase Agreement, the Certificate of Designation of Preferences and Rights and Limitations of 7 1/2% Series A-1 Convertible Preferred Stock and the Registration Rights Agreement for the Series A Preferred Stock, which were filed as exhibits to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K, dated October 20, 2010.

As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had investments in corporate debt and equity instruments which had attached warrants that were considered derivative instruments. These warrants have an allocated cost basis of $400,000 as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 and a fair value of $282,000 and $749,000 as of June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. During the year ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had an unrealized loss of $467,000 and an unrealized gain of $143,000, respectively, related to these warrants.

  

NOTE 8 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

The carrying values of the Company’s non-financial instruments approximate fair value due to their short maturities (i.e., accounts receivable, other assets, accounts payable and other liabilities, due to securities broker and obligations for securities sold) or the nature and terms of the obligation (i.e., other notes payable and mortgage notes payable).

The fair values of investments in marketable securities are determined by the most recently traded price of each security at the balance sheet date. The fair value of the warrants was determined based upon a Black-Scholes option valuation model.

 

Financial assets that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis and are not included in the tables above include “Other investments in non-marketable securities,” that were initially measured at cost and have been written down to fair value as a result of impairment or adjusted to record the fair value of new instruments received (i.e., preferred shares) in exchange for old instruments (i.e., debt instruments). The following table shows the fair value hierarchy for these assets measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis as follows:

 

44
 

 

                   Net loss for the year

Other investments in non-marketable securities are carried at cost net of any impairment loss. The Company has no significant influence or control over the entities that issue these investments. These investments are reviewed on a periodic basis for other-than-temporary impairment. The Company reviews several factors to determine whether a loss is other-than-temporary. These factors include but are not limited to: (i) the length of time an investment is in an unrealized loss position, (ii) the extent to which fair value is less than cost, (iii) the financial condition and near term prospects of the issuer and (iv) our ability to hold the investment for a period of time sufficient to allow for any anticipated recovery in fair value.

NOTE 10 – OTHER NOTES PAYABLE AND LINE OF CREDIT

 

The Partnership had a $2,500,000 unsecured revolving line of credit facility with a bank that was to mature on April 30, 2010. Effective April 29, 2010, the Partnership obtained a modification from the bank which converted its revolving line of credit facility to a term loan. The Partnership also obtained a waiver of any prior noncompliance with financial covenants.

 

The modification provides that Justice will pay the $2,500,000 balance on its line of credit facility over a period of four years, to mature on April 30, 2014. This term loan calls for monthly principal and interest payments, calculated on a six-year amortization schedule, with interest only from May 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010. Pursuant to the modification, the annual floating interest rate was reduced by 0.5% to the WSJ Prime Rate plus 2.5% (with a minimum floor rate of 5.0% per annum). The modification provides for new financial covenants that include specific financial ratios and a return to minimum profitability after June 30, 2011. Management believes that the partnership has the ability to meet the specific covenants. The Partnership was in compliance with the covenants as of June 30, 2012 and 2011. The loan continues as unsecured. The Partnership made additional principal payments totaling $124,000 in fiscal year 2012. The outstanding balance was $1,702,000 and $2,202,000 as of June 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively; the interest rate was 5.75% as of June 30, 2012.

 

45
 

 

The Partnership has short-term financing agreements with a financial institution for the payment of its general, property, and workers’ compensation insurance. The notes payable under these financing agreements bear interest at 3.8% per annum and payable in equal monthly installments (principal and interest) through July 2012. The notes payable at June 30, 2012 and 2011, were $61,000 and $112,000, respectively.

 

As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company had capital lease obligations outstanding of $309,000 and $472,000, respectively, which were included in Other Notes Payable.

In December 2010, the Company modified its $5,932,000 mortgage note payable on the property located in St. Louis, Missouri. Prior to the modification of the mortgage note, the Company paid a fixed rate of 6.16%. Upon modification, the interest rate was based upon LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) plus 3.5%. Concurrent to the modification of the note, the Company entered into a rate swap agreement in order to settle the variable rate (i.e., LIBOR) into a fixed rate of 1.35%, thereby allowing the Company to pay a total fixed interest rate of 4.85%. The swap agreement matures in May 2013. A swap is a contractual agreement to exchange interest rate payments. Under the swap agreement, the Company agrees to pay the bank (counterparty) a fixed rate and the bank agrees to pay the Company a floating rate. The interest rate swap agreement is being measured at fair value, but was not designated by the Company as a cash flow hedge. Should the Company terminate the swap contract prematurely, it would be required to pay the fair value of the swap valued at $60,000 as of June 30, 2012, which is recorded as a liability by the Company under “accounts payable and other liabilities” in the consolidated balance sheet. The change in the fair value of the instrument is recognized and recorded in the “net unrealized gain (loss) on other investments and derivative instruments” in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

In November 2010, the Company refinanced its $1,641,000 adjustable rate mortgage note payable on its 27-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year fixed rate mortgage in the amount of $3,260,000. The interest rate on the new loan is fixed at 4.85% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in December 2020. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $1,507,000 from the refinancing.

 

In November 2010, the Company also refinanced its $3,569,000 adjustable rate mortgage note payable on its 31-unit apartment building located in Los Angeles, California for a new 10-year fixed rate mortgage in the amount of $5,787,000. The interest rate on the new loan is fixed at 4.85% per annum, with monthly principal and interest payments based on a 30-year amortization schedule. The note matures in December 2020. The Company received net proceeds of approximately $2,078,000 from the refinancing.

NOTE 12 – HOTEL RENTAL INCOME

 

The Partnership has a lease agreement with Tru Spa, LLC (Tru Spa) for the use of the spa facilities expiring in May 2013. The lease provides the Partnership with minimum monthly payments of $14,000, subject to increases based on the Consumer Price Index. Minimum future rentals to be received under the terms of this lease as of June 30, 2012 are $151,000.

  

NOTE 13 – MANAGEMENT AGREEMENT

 

On February 2, 2007, the Partnership entered into an agreement with Prism to manage and operate the Hotel as its agent. The agreement is effective for a term of ten years, unless the agreement is extended or earlier terminated as provided in the agreement. Under the management agreement, the Partnership is required to pay the base management fees of 2.5% of gross operating revenues of the Hotel (i.e., room, food and beverage, and other operating departments) for the fiscal year. However, 0.75% of the stated management fee is due only if the partially adjusted net operating income of the hotel for the fiscal year exceeds the amount of the Hotel return for the fiscal year. Prism is also entitled to an incentive management fee if certain milestones are accomplished. No incentive fees were paid during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. In support of the Partnership’s efforts to reduce costs in this difficult economic environment, Prism agreed to reduce its management fees by fifty percent from January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2010, after which the original fee arrangement went back into effect. Management fees paid to Prism during the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were $626,000 and $469,000, respectively.

NOTE 16 – STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION PLANS

 

The Company follows the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards 123 (Revised), "Share-Based Payments" ("SFAS No. 123R"), which was primarily codified into ASC Topic 718 “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which addresses accounting for equity-based compensation arrangements, including employee stock options and restricted stock units. 

 

The Company currently has three equity compensation plans, each of which has been approved by the Company’s stockholders. The InterGroup Corporation 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan (the “2008 RSU Plan”), the InterGroup Corporation 2007 Stock Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors (the “2007 Stock Plan”) and the Intergroup 2010 Omnibus Employee Incentive Plan are described below. Any outstanding options issued under the Key Employee Plan or the Non-Employee Director Plan remain effective in accordance with their terms. 

 

Intergroup Corporation 2010 Omnibus Employee Incentive Plan

 

On February 24, 2010, the shareholders of the Company approved The Intergroup Corporation 2010 Omnibus Employee Incentive Plan (the “2010 Incentive Plan”), which was formally adopted by the Board of Directors following the annual meeting of shareholders. The Company believes that such awards better align the interests of its employees with those of its shareholders. Option awards are generally granted with an exercise price equal to the market price of the Company’s stock at the date of grant; those option awards generally vest based on 5 years of continuous service. Certain option and share awards provide for accelerated vesting if there is a change in control, as defined in the 2010 Incentive Plan. The 2010 Incentive plan authorizes a total of up to 200,000 shares of common stock to be issued as equity compensation to officers and employees of the Company in an amount and in a manner to be determined by the Compensation Committee in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Incentive Plan. The 2010 Incentive Plan authorizes the awards of several types of equity compensation including stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance awards and other stock based compensation. The 2010 Incentive Plan will expire on February 23, 2020, if not terminated sooner by the Board of Directors upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee. Any awards issued under the 2010 Incentive Plan will expire under the terms of the grant agreement.

On March 16, 2010, the Compensation Committee authorized the grant of 100,000 stock options to the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive, John V. Winfield to purchase up to 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the 2010 Incentive Plan. The exercise price of the options is $10.30, which is 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s Common Stock as determined by reference to the closing price of the Company’s Common Stock as reported on the NASDAQ Capital Market on March 16, 2010, the date of grant. The options expire ten years from the date of grant, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Incentive Plan. The options shall be subject to both time and performance based vesting requirements, each of which must be satisfied before options are fully vested and eligible to be exercised. Pursuant to the time vesting requirements, the options vest over a period of five years, with 20,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant. Pursuant to the performance vesting requirements, the options vest in increments of 20,000 shares upon each increase of $2.00 or more in the market price of the Company’s common stock above the exercise price ($10.30) of the options. To satisfy this requirement, the common stock must trade at that increased level for a period of at least ten trading days during any one quarter. As of June 30, 2012, all the performance vesting requirements have been met.

 

In February 2012, the Compensation Committee awarded 90,000 stock options to the Company’s Chairmen, President and Chief Executive, John V. Winfield to purchase up to 90,000 shares of common stock. The exercise price of the options is $19.77 which is the fair value of the Company’s Common Stock as reported on NASDAQ on February 28, 2012. The options expire ten years from the date of grant. The options are subject to both time and performance based vesting requirements, each of which must be satisfied before the options are fully vested and eligible to be exercised. Pursuant to the time vesting requirements, the options vest over a period of five years, with 18,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant. Pursuant to the performance vesting requirements, the options vest in increments of 18,000 shares upon each increase of $2.00 or more in the market price of the Company’s common stock above the exercise price ($19.77) of the options. To satisfy this requirement, the common stock must trade at that increased level for a period of at least ten trading days during any one quarter.

 

In July 2011, an officer of the Company was awarded 5,000 stock options with an exercise price of $24.92, with 1,000 options vesting each year for the next five years and expiring ten years from the date of grant.

 

The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant using a Black-Scholes option valuation model that uses the assumptions noted in the table below. Because Black-Scholes option valuation models incorporate ranges of assumptions for inputs, those ranges are disclosed. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company’s stock, and other factors. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee termination within the valuation model; The expected term of options granted is derived from the output of the option valuation model and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding; The risk-free rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

 

The fair value of options granted during the year ended June 30, 2012 are measured by applying the Black-Scholes model on grant date using the following assumptions:

 

Expected volatility   52.2%
Expected term   7 years 
Expected dividend yield   0%
Risk-free interest rate   1.66%

During the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company recorded stock option compensation expense of $241,000 and $278,000, respectively, related to issuance of stock options. As of June 30, 2012, there was a total of $604,000 of unamortized compensation related to stock options which is expected to be recognized over the weighted-average of 4 years.

 

The following table summarizes the stock options activity from June 30, 2010 through June 30, 2012:

 

      Number of   Weighted Average   Weighted Average   Aggregate

The InterGroup Corporation 2007 Stock Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2007 Stock Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors (the “2007 Stock Plan”) was approved by the shareholders of the Company on February 21, 2007, and was thereafter adopted by the Board of Directors. The 2007 Stock Plan will terminate upon the earlier of the date all shares reserved for issuance have been awarded or February 21, 2017, if not sooner terminated by the Board upon recommendation by the Compensation Committee. The stock available for issuance under the 2007Stock Plan shall be unrestricted shares of the Company's Common Stock, par value $.01 per share, which may be unissued shares or treasury shares. Subject to certain adjustments upon changes in capitalization, a maximum of 60,000 shares of the Common Stock will be available for issuance to participants under the 2007 Stock Plan.

 

All non-employee directors are eligible to participate in the 2007 Plan. Each non-employee director as of the adoption date of the 2007 Stock Plan was granted an award of 600 unrestricted shares of the Company’s Common Stock. On each July 1 following the adoption date of the 2007 Stock Plan, each non-employee director shall receive an automatic grant of a number of shares of Company’s Common Stock equal in value to $18,000 based on 100% of the fair market value (as defined) of the Common Stock on the date of grant, provided he or she holds such position on that date and the number of shares of Common Stock available for grant under the 2007 Stock Plan is sufficient to permit such automatic grant. Any fractional shares resulting from such grant will be rounded up to next highest whole share. All stock awards to non-employee directors will be fully vested on the date of grant. The dollar amount of the annual grant is subject to further adjustment by the Board of Directors upon recommendation by the Compensation Committee.

 

The stock awards granted under the 2007 Stock Plan are shares of unrestricted Common Stock and are fully vested on the date of grant. The right of the non-employee director to receive his or her annual grant of Common is personal to the director and is not transferable. Once received, shares of Common Stock awarded to the non-employee director are freely transferable subject to any requirements of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). On June 28, 2007, Company filed a registration statement on Form S-8 to register the shares subject to the 2007 Stock Plan and the Company’s two prior stock option plans under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

Upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, the Board may, at any time and from time to time and in any respect, amend or modify the 2007 Stock Plan. The Board must obtain stockholder approval of any material amendment to the 2007 Stock Plan if required by any applicable law, regulation or stock exchange rule. The Board of Directors may amend the 2007 Stock Plan or any award agreement, which amendment may be retroactive, in order to conform it to any present or future law, regulation or ruling relating to plans of this or similar nature. No amendment or modification of the 2007 Stock Plan or any award agreement may adversely affect any outstanding award without the written consent of the participant holding the award.

 

Upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, the Board of Directors, on February 23, 2011, voted to increase the annual grant awarded to each of the non-employee directors to a number of shares of Company’s common stock equal in value to $22,000, effective as of the July 1, 2011 grant, while decreasing the annual cash compensation payable to non-employee directors from $16,000 to $12,000 per year.

 

For the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, the four non-employee directors of the Company received a total grant of 3,532 and 4,716 shares of Common Stock pursuant to the 2007 Stock Plan, respectively.  

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan

 

On December 3, 2008, the Board of Directors of the Company adopted, a new equity compensation plan for its officers, directors and key employees entitled, The InterGroup Corporation 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan (the “2008 RSU Plan”). The Plan was adopted, in part, to replace the stock option plans that expired on December 7, 2008. The 2008 RSU Plan was approved by shareholders at the Company’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders on February 18, 2009.

 

The 2008 RSU Plan authorizes the Company to issue restricted stock units (“RSUs”) as equity compensation to officers, directors and key employees of the Company on such terms and conditions established by the Compensation Committee of the Company. RSUs are not actual shares of the Company’s common stock, but rather promises to deliver common stock in the future, subject to certain vesting requirements and other restrictions as may be determined by the Committee. Holders of RSUs have no voting rights with respect to the underlying shares of common stock and holders are not entitled to receive any dividends until the RSUs vest and the shares are delivered. No awards of RSUs shall vest until at least nine months after shareholder approval of the 2008 RSU Plan on February 18, 2009. Subject to certain adjustments upon changes in capitalization, a maximum of 200,000 shares of the common stock are available for issuance to participants under the 2008 RSU Plan. The 2008 RSU Plan will terminate ten (10) years from December 3, 2008, unless terminated sooner by the Board of Directors. After the 2008 RSU Plan is terminated, no awards may be granted but awards previously granted shall remain outstanding in accordance with the Plan and their applicable terms and conditions.

 

Under the 2008 RSU Plan, the Compensation Committee also has the power and authority to establish and implement an exchange program that would permit the Company to offer holders of awards issued under prior shareholder approved compensation plans to exchange certain options for new RSUs on terms and conditions to be set by the Committee. The exchange program is designed to increase the retention and motivational value of awards granted under prior plans. In addition, by exchanging options for RSUs, the Company will reduce the number of shares of common stock subject to equity awards, thereby reducing potential dilution to stockholders in the event of significant increases in the value of its common stock.

The table below summarizes the RSUs granted and outstanding.

 

       Weighted Average 
       Grant Date

RSUs outstanding as of               June 30, 2012   8,245   $24.94 

 

During the year ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, no additional compensation expense was recognized related to the exchange of previously issued stock options to RSUs as the fair market value of the options immediately prior to the exchanges, approximated the fair value of the RSUs on the date of issuance. During the year ended June 30, 2012, 15,000 stock options were exchanged for 8,245 RSUs. During the year ended June 30, 2011, 12,000 stock options were exchanged for 5,884 RSUs. 

 

NOTE 17 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

As Chairman of the Securities Investment Committee, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, John V. Winfield, directs the investment activity of the Company in public and private markets pursuant to authority granted by the Board of Directors. Mr. Winfield also serves as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of InterGroup and oversees the investment activity of the Company. Depending on certain market conditions and various risk factors, the Chief Executive Officer, his family and the Company may, at times, invest in the same companies in which the Company invests. The Company encourages such investments because it places personal resources of the Chief Executive Officer and his family members, and the resources of InterGroup, at risk in connection with investment decisions made on behalf of the Company.

 

In fiscal year ended June 30, 2004, the disinterested members of the respective Boards of Directors of the Company and its subsidiaries, Santa Fe and Portsmouth, established a performance based compensation program for the Company’s CEO to keep and retain his services as a direct and active manager of the Company’s securities portfolio. Pursuant to the current criteria established by the Board, Mr. Winfield is entitled to performance based compensation for his management of the Company’s securities portfolio equal to 20% of all net investment gains generated in excess of an annual return equal to the Prime Rate of Interest (as published in the Wall Street Journal) plus 2%. Compensation amounts are calculated and paid quarterly based on the results of the Company’s investment portfolio for that quarter. Should the Company have a net investment loss during any quarter, Mr. Winfield would not be entitled to any further performance-based compensation until any such investment losses are recouped by the Company. This performance based compensation program may be further modified or terminated at the discretion of the respective Boards of Directors. The Company’s CEO did not earn any performance based compensation for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

The Partnership also pays a monthly program fee of four percent (4%) of the Hotel’s gross revenue. The amount of the monthly program fee is subject to change; however, the increase cannot exceed one percent (1%) of the Hotel gross room revenue in any calendar year, and the cumulative increases in the monthly fees will not exceed five percent (5%) of gross room revenue. Franchise fees for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were $3,008,000 and $2,574,000, respectively.

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires the Company’s officers and directors, and each beneficial owner of more than ten percent of the Common Stock of the Company, to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Officers, directors and greater than ten-percent shareholders are required by SEC regulations to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.

 

Based solely on its review of the copies of Forms 3 and 4 and amendments thereto furnished to the Company during its most recent fiscal year and Forms 5 and amendments thereto furnished to the Company with respect to its most recent fiscal year, or written representations from certain reporting persons that no Forms 5 were required for those persons, the Company knows of one Form 4 report not filed on a timely basis. Although the Company filed a timely report on Form 8-K disclosing a stock option grant to its President and Chief Executive Officer, John V. Winfield, on February 28, 2012 pursuant to the Company’s 2010 Incentive Plan, the requisite Form 4 was inadvertently not filed on behalf of Mr. Winfield.

The Company has adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to its principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions.

Winfield, all of InterGroup’s Board of Directors consists of “independent” directors as independence is defined by the applicable rules of the SEC and NASDAQ.

 

Nominating Committee

(1) Mr. Winfield also serves as President and Chairman of the Board of the Company’s subsidiary, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe’s subsidiary, Portsmouth. Mr. Winfield received a salary from Santa Fe and Portsmouth in the aggregate amount of $255,000 from those entities for each of fiscal years 2012 and 2011, as well as director’s fees totaling $12,000 for each year. Those amounts are included in this item.

 

(2) For fiscal 2012 and 2011, the dollar amount reflects the fair market value of 15,000 shares of common stock issued to Mr. Winfield upon the vesting of 15,000 Restricted Stock Units (“RSUs”) on September 10, 2011 and 2010, respectively, as determined by reference to the closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the NASDAQ Capital Market on the vesting dates. With respect to the September 10, 2011 vesting, Mr. Winfield surrendered 4,958 shares of the 15,000 shares issued to him back to the Company to satisfy tax withholding requirements. All RSUs were issued pursuant to the Company’s 2008 RSU Plan. On December 21, 2008, Mr. Winfield surrendered to the Company 225,000 fully vested stock options in exchange for 84,628 RSUs pursuant to an exchange offer made by the Compensation Committee as authorized by 2008 RSU Plan. The RSUs are taxable as ordinary income to Mr. Winfield upon vesting and issuance of the shares of Common Stock.

 

(3) For fiscal 2012, the dollar amount reflects aggregate grant date fair value of options expected to vest, computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, of 90,000 stock options granted to Mr. Winfield on February 28, 2012 pursuant to the Company’s 2010 Incentive Plan. [See Note 16 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for assumptions.] The options expire 10 years from the date of grant and have an exercise price of $19.77 per share, which was 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock as determined by reference to the closing price as reported on the NASDAQ Capital Market on February 28, 2012, the date of grant. The options are subject to both time and performance based vesting requirements, each of which must be satisfied before the options are fully vested and eligible to be exercised. Pursuant to the time vesting requirements, the options vest over a period of five years, with 18,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant. Pursuant to the performance vesting requirements, the options vest in increments of 18,000 shares upon each increase of $2.00 or more in the market price of the Company’s common stock above the exercise price ($19.77) of the options. To satisfy this requirement, the common stock must trade at that increased level for a period of at least ten trading days during any one quarter. Assuming that the highest level of performance conditions will be achieved, the total value of the grant is estimated at $944,000.

(4) Amounts include an auto allowance and compensation for a portion of the salary of an assistant. The auto allowance was $29,000 during each of fiscal years 2012 and 2011. The amount of compensation related to the assistant was approximately $59,000 and $55,000 for fiscal years 2012 and 2011, respectively. During fiscal 2012 and 2011, the Company and its subsidiaries also paid annual premiums in the total amount of $85,000 for split dollar whole life insurance policies owned by, and the beneficiary of which are, a trust for the benefit of Mr. Winfield's family. Of the $85,000 in premiums paid each year, Santa Fe and Portsmouth paid $43,000 of that amount. The Company has a secured right to receive, from any proceeds of the policies, reimbursement of all premiums paid prior to any payment to the beneficiary.

 

(5) Mr. Nguyen’s salary is allocated approximately 50% to the Company and 50% to Santa Fe and Portsmouth.

 

(6) For fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively, these amounts include $113,000 and $97,000 in salary and bonus allocated to and paid by Portsmouth and $25,000 and $24,000 in salary allocated to Santa Fe.

 

(7) For fiscal 2012, the dollar amount reflects aggregate grant date fair value of options expected to vest, computed in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, of 5,000 stock options granted to Mr. Zybala on July 1, 2011 pursuant to the Company’s 2010 Incentive Plan. [See Note 16 to the Consolidated Financial Statements for assumptions.] The options expire 10 years from the date of grant and have an exercise price of $24.92 per share, which was 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock as determined by reference to the closing price as reported on the NASDAQ Capital Market on the date of grant. The options vest over a period of five years, with 1,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant.

 

Compensation Committee and Executive Compensation

 

The Company's Administrative and Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) is comprised of three “independent” members of the Board of Directors as independence is defined by the applicable rules of the SEC and NASDAQ. Mr. Nance serves as Chairman of the Compensation Committee. The Company has not established a charter for the Compensation Committee. The Compensation Committee reviews and recommends to the Board of Directors the compensation for the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and other executive officers, including equity or performance based compensation and plans. The Compensation Committee seeks to design and set compensation to attract and retain highly qualified executive officers and to align their interests with those of long-term owners of the Company. The Compensation Committee may also make recommendations to the Board of Directors as to the amount and form of director compensation. The Compensation Committee has not engaged any compensation consultants in determining the amount or form of executive of director compensation, but does review and monitor published compensation surveys and studies. The Compensation Committee may delegate to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer the authority to determine the compensation of certain executive officers. The Compensation Committee also oversees the Company’s 2007 Stock Plan, the 2008 RSU Plan and the 2010 Incentive Plan.

 

In fiscal year ended June 30, 2004, the disinterested members of the respective Boards of Directors of the Company and its subsidiaries, Santa Fe and Portsmouth, established a performance based compensation program for the Company’s CEO to keep and retain his services as a direct and active manager of the Company’s securities portfolio. Pursuant to the current criteria established by the Board, Mr. Winfield is entitled to performance based compensation for his management of the Company’s securities portfolio equal to 20% of all net investment gains generated in excess of an annual return equal to the Prime Rate of Interest (as published in the Wall Street Journal) plus 2%. Compensation amounts are calculated and paid quarterly based on the results of the Company’s investment portfolio for that quarter. Should the Company have a net investment loss during any quarter, Mr. Winfield would not be entitled to any further performance-based compensation until any such investment losses are recouped by the Company. This performance based compensation program may be further modified or terminated at the discretion of the respective Boards of Directors. The Company’s CEO did not earn any performance based compensation for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

Internal Revenue Code Limitations

 

Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), provides that, in the case of a publicly held corporation, the corporation is not generally allowed to deduct remuneration paid to its chief executive officer and certain other highly compensated officers to the extent that such remuneration exceeds $1,000,000 for the taxable year. Certain remuneration, however, is not subject to disallowance, including compensation paid on a commission basis and, if certain requirements prescribed by the Code are satisfied, other performance based compensation. Since InterGroup, Santa Fe and Portsmouth are each public companies, the $1,000,000 limitation applies separately to the compensation paid by each entity. Stock option expenses are also amortized over a several years. For fiscal years 2012 and 2011, no compensation paid by the Company to its CEO or other executive officers was subject the deduction disallowance prescribed by Section 162(m) of the Code.

EQUITY COMPENSATION PLANS

 

The Company currently has three equity compensation plans, each of which has been approved by the Company’s stockholders. However, any outstanding stock options issued under the Company’s prior equity compensation plans remain effective in accordance with their terms.

 

The purpose of the Company’s equity compensation plans is to provide a means whereby officers, directors and key employees of the Company develop a sense of proprietorship and personal involvement in the development and financial success of the Company, and to encourage them to devote their best efforts to the business of the Company, thereby advancing the interests of the Company and its shareholders. A further purpose of these plans is to provide a means through which the Company may attract able individuals to become employees or serve as directors of the Company and to provide a means for such individuals to acquire and maintain stock ownership in the Company, thereby strengthening their concern for the welfare of the Company.

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2007 Stock Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2007 Stock Compensation Plan for Non-Employee Directors (the “2007 Stock Plan”) was approved by the shareholders of the Company on February 21, 2007, and was thereafter adopted by the Board of Directors. The 2007 Plan will terminate upon the earlier of the date all shares reserved for issuance have been awarded or February 21, 2017, if not sooner terminated by the Board upon recommendation by the Compensation Committee. The stock available for issuance under the 2007 Stock Plan shall be unrestricted shares of the Company's common stock, par value $.01 per share, which may be unissued shares or treasury shares. Subject to certain adjustments upon changes in capitalization, a maximum of 60,000 shares of the common stock will be available for issuance to participants under the 2007 Stock Plan.

 

All non-employee directors are eligible to participate in the 2007 Stock Plan. Each non-employee director as of the adoption date of the 2007 Stock Plan was granted an award of 600 unrestricted shares of the Company’s common stock. On each July 1 following the adoption date of the 2007 Stock Plan, each non-employee director shall receive an automatic grant of a number of shares of company’s common stock equal in value to $18,000 based on 100% of the fair market value (as defined) of the Common Stock on the date of grant, provided he or she holds such position on that date and the number of shares of Common Stock available for grant under the 2007 Stock Plan is sufficient to permit such automatic grant. Any fractional shares resulting from such grant will be rounded up to next highest whole share. All stock awards to non-employee directors will be fully vested on the date of grant. The dollar amount of the annual grant is subject to further adjustment by the Board of Directors upon recommendation by the Compensation Committee. The stock awards granted under the 2007 Stock Plan are shares of unrestricted common stock and are fully vested on the date of grant. The right of the non-employee director to receive his or her annual grant of common stock is personal to the director and is not transferable. Once received, shares of common stock awarded to the non-employee director are freely transferable subject to any requirements of Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). On June 28, 2007, Company filed a registration statement on Form S-8 to register the shares subject to the 2007 Stock Plan and the Company’s two prior stock option plans under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).

 

Upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, the Board may, at any time and from time to time and in any respect, amend or modify the 2007 Stock Plan. The Board must obtain stockholder approval of any material amendment to the 2007 Stock Plan if required by any applicable law, regulation or stock exchange rule. The Board of Directors may amend the 2007 Stock Plan or any award agreement, which amendment may be retroactive, in order to conform it to any present or future law, regulation or ruling relating to plans of this or similar nature. No amendment or modification of the 2007 Stock Plan or any award agreement may adversely affect any outstanding award without the written consent of the participant holding the award.

 

Upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, the Board of Directors, on February 23, 2011, voted to increase the annual grant awarded to each of the non-employee directors to a number of shares of Company’s common stock equal in value to $22,000, effective as of the July 1, 2011 grant, while decreasing the annual cash compensation payable to non-employee directors from $16,000 to $12,000 per year.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012, the four non-employee directors of the Company, Josef A. Grunwald, Gary N. Jacobs, John C. Love and William J. Nance, each received a grant of 883 shares of Common Stock pursuant to the 2007 Stock Plan.

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan

 

On December 3, 2008, the Board of Directors adopted, subject to shareholder approval, a new equity compensation plan for its officers, directors and key employees entitled, The InterGroup Corporation 2008 Restricted Stock Unit Plan (the “2008 RSU Plan”). The 2008 RSU Plan was approved and ratified by the shareholders on February 18, 2009.

 

The 2008 RSU Plan authorizes the Company to issue restricted stock units (“RSUs”) as equity compensation to officers, directors and key employees of the Company on such terms and conditions established by the Compensation Committee of the Company. RSUs are not actual shares of the Company’s common stock, but rather promises to deliver common stock in the future, subject to certain vesting requirements and other restrictions as may be determined by the Committee. Holders of RSUs have no voting rights with respect to the underlying shares of common stock and holders are not entitled to receive any dividends until the RSUs vest and the shares are delivered. No awards of RSUs shall vest until at least six months after shareholder approval of the Plan. Subject to certain adjustments upon changes in capitalization, a maximum of 200,000 shares of the common stock are available for issuance to participants under the 2008 RSU Plan. The 2008 RSU Plan will terminate ten (10) years from December 3, 2008, unless terminated sooner by the Board of Directors. After the 2008 RSU Plan is terminated, no awards may be granted but awards previously granted shall remain outstanding in accordance with the Plan and their applicable terms and conditions.

 

The shares of common stock to be delivered upon the vesting of an award of RSUs have been registered under the Securities Act, pursuant to a registration statement filed on Form S-8 by the Company on June 16, 2010. The grant of RSUs is personal to the recipient and is not transferable. Once received, shares of common stock issuable upon the vesting of the RSUs are freely transferable subject to any requirements of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act. Under the 2008 RSU Plan, the Compensation Committee also has the power and authority to establish and implement an exchange program that would permit the Company to offer holders of awards issued under prior shareholder approved compensation plans to exchange certain options for new RSUs on terms and conditions to be set by the Committee. The exchange program is designed to increase the retention and motivational value of awards granted under prior plans. In addition, by exchanging options for RSUs, the Company will reduce the number of shares of common stock subject to equity awards, thereby reducing potential dilution to stockholders in the event of significant increases in the value of its common stock.

 

Pursuant to an exchange offer authorized by the Compensation Committee, a total of 8,245 RSUs were issued to five holders of Non-Employee Director stock options in exchange for a total of 15,000 stock options which were surrendered to the Company on June 30, 2012. The number of RSUs issued was determined by multiplying the number of options that were surrendered by the difference between the exercise price of the options surrendered ($11.23) and the closing price of the Company’s common stock on June 30, 2012 of $24.94, with that product divided by the closing price of the common stock on June 30, 2012. Of the 8,245 RSUs issued pursuant to that exchange offer, 4,125 will vest on October 1, 2012 and 4,120 will vest on April 1, 2013.

 

The InterGroup Corporation 2010 Omnibus Employee Incentive Plan

 

On February 24, 2010, the shareholders of the Company approved The InterGroup Corporation 2010 Omnibus Employee Incentive Plan (the “2010 Incentive Plan”), which was formally adopted by the Board of Directors following the annual meeting of shareholders. The 2010 Incentive Plan authorizes a total of up to 200,000 shares of common stock to be issued as equity compensation to officers and employees of the Company in an amount and in a manner to be determined by the Compensation Committee in accordance with the terms of the Plan. The 2010 Incentive Plan authorizes the awards of several types of equity compensation including stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance awards and other stock based compensation. The 2010 Incentive Plan will expire on February 23, 2020, if not terminated sooner by the Board of Directors upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee. Any awards issued under the Plan will expire under the terms of the grant agreement.

 

65
 

 

The shares of common stock to be issued under the 2010 Incentive Plan have been registered under the Securities Act, pursuant to a registration statement filed on Form S-8 by the Company on June 16, 2010. Once received, shares of common stock issued under the Plan will be freely transferable subject to any requirements of Section 16(b) of the Exchange Act.

 

On February 28, 2012, the Compensation Committee authorized the grant of 90,000 stock options to the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive, John V. Winfield to purchase up to 90,000 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the 2010 Incentive Plan. The exercise price of the options is $19.77, which equals 100% of the fair market value of the Company’s common stock as determined by reference to the closing price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the NASDAQ Capital Market on February 28, 2012 the date of grant. The options expire ten years from the date of grant, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Plan. The options shall be subject to both time and performance based vesting requirements, each of which must be satisfied before options are fully vested and eligible to be exercised. Pursuant to the time vesting requirements, the options vest over a period of five years, with 18,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant. Pursuant to the performance vesting requirements, the options vest in increments of 18,000 shares upon each increase of $2.00 or more in the market price of the Company’s common stock above the exercise price ($19.77) of the options. To satisfy this requirement, the common stock must trade at that increased level for a period of at least ten trading days during any one quarter. As of June 30, 2012, none of the performance vesting requirements of the options was satisfied.

 

On July 1, 2011, the Compensation Committee authorized a grant of 5,000 stock options to the Company’s Assistant Secretary and General Counsel, Michael G, Zybala, to purchase up to 5,000 shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the 2010 Incentive Plan. The exercise price of the options is $24.92 and the options expire ten years from the date of grant, unless earlier terminated in accordance with the terms of the 2010 Plan. The options vest over a period of five years, with 1,000 options vesting upon each one year anniversary of the date of grant, July 1, 2011.

 

Change in Controls Provisions in Equity Compensation Plans.

 

Under the Company’s 2008 RSU Plan and its 2010 Incentive Plan, RSUs, stock options and other incentive awards may vest upon a change in control of the Company in accordance with their respective grant agreements. Outstanding unvested RSUs issued to pursuant to the 2008 RSU Plan in exchange for vested stock options will immediately vest upon a change in control. Outstanding stock options issued pursuant to the Company’s 2010 Incentive Plan will also immediately vest and become exercisable upon a change in control. Except for the foregoing, there are no employment contracts between the Company and its Officers or Directors or any change in control arrangements.

 

Compensation of Directors

 

Until fiscal 2011, each non-employee director received an annual cash retainer in the amount of $16,000, to be paid in equal quarterly payments. Upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, the Board of Directors, on February 23, 2011, voted to decrease the annual cash compensation payable to non-employee directors from $16,000 to $12,000, effective as of fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. With the exception of members of the Audit Committee, non-employee directors do not receive any additional fees for attending Board or Committee meetings, but are entitled to reimbursement of their reasonable expenses to attend such meetings. Members of the Audit Committee are paid a fee of $1,000 per quarter, with the Chair of that Committee to receive $1,500 per quarter. As an executive officer, the Company’s Chairman has elected to forego his annual board fees.

 

Non-employee directors are also eligible for grants of equity compensation under the Company’s 2007 Stock Plan and 2008 RSU Plan. Pursuant to the 2007 Stock Plan, each non-employee director was entitled to an annual grant of a number of shares of common stock of the Company equal in value to $18,000 based on the fair market value of the Common Stock on the date of grant. To compensate for the $4,000 reduction in annual cash compensation payable to non-employee directors as discussed above, the Board of Directors, upon recommendation of the Compensation Committee, increased the annual grant of common stock to an amount equal in value to $22,000, effective as of the July 1, 2011 grant. Non-employee directors may also be eligible to participate in exchange offers as may be authorized by the Compensation Committee under the 2008 RSU Plan to exchange previously issued stock options for RSUs.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence.

 

On December 4, 1998, the Compensation Committee authorized the Company to obtain whole life and split dollar insurance policies covering the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Winfield. During fiscal 2012 and 2011, the Company paid annual premiums in the amount of approximately $85,000 for the split dollar insurance policy owned by, and the beneficiary of which is, a trust for the benefit of Mr. Winfield’s family. The Company has a secured right to receive, from any proceeds of the policy, reimbursement of all premiums paid prior to any payments to the beneficiary.

 

On June 30, 1998, the Company’s Chairman and President entered into a voting trust agreement with the Company giving the Company the power to vote his 4.0% interest in the outstanding shares of the Santa Fe common stock.

 

As Chairman of the Securities Investment Committee, the Company’s President and Chief Executive officer, John V. Winfield, oversees the investment activity of the Company in public and private markets pursuant to authority granted by the Board of Directors. Mr. Winfield also serves as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Santa Fe and Portsmouth and oversees the investment activity of those companies. Depending on certain market conditions and various risk factors, the Chief Executive Officer, his family, Santa Fe and Portsmouth may, at times, invest in the same companies in which the Company invests. The Company encourages such investments because it places personal resources of the Chief Executive Officer and his family members, and the resources of Santa Fe and Portsmouth, at risk in connection with investment decisions made on behalf of the Company. Under the direction of the Securities Investment Committee, the Company has instituted certain modifications to its procedures to reduce the potential for conflicts of interest.

 

The Company, its subsidiary Santa Fe and Santa Fe’s subsidiary, Portsmouth, have established performance based compensation programs for Mr. Winfield’s management of the securities portfolios of those companies. The performance based compensation program was approved by the disinterested members of the respective Boards of Directors of the Company and its subsidiaries. No performance bonus compensation was paid to Mr. Winfield for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

 

Director Independence

 

InterGroup’s common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market tier of the NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”). InterGroup is a Smaller Reporting Company under the rules and regulations of the SEC. The Board of Directors of InterGroup currently consists of five members. With the exception of the Company’s President and CEO, John V. Winfield, all of InterGroup’s Board of Directors consists of “independent” directors as independence is defined by the applicable rules of the SEC and NASDAQ. There are no members of the Company’s compensation, nominating or audit committees that do not meet those independence standards.
