IMH Financial Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2014 Results

* 44% Increase in EBITDA

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IMH Financial Corporation ("IMH" or "the Company") announced today that it filed its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended June 30, 2014 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 14, 2014. Following are financial and operational highlights for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2014:

Three Month Summary Results

  • Top line revenue (the sum of operating property revenue, investment and other income, and mortgage loan income) increased by approximately 75%, to $8.9 million, for the three months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to $5.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013.
  • The Company recorded gains from the disposal of assets of $6.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2014, as compared to gains from the disposal of assets of $0.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013.
  • EBITDA for the second quarter of 2014 was $4.3 million, a 44% improvement over the same period in 2013.  Net loss for the second quarter of 2014, which included $1.0 million of non-cash amortization and depreciation, was $1.5 million, compared to a net loss of $2.3 million, including $623,000 of non-cash depreciation and amortization, for the three months ended June 30, 2013, representing a 38% year-over-year improvement.
  • Basic and diluted loss per common share for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.09 compared to $0.14 for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Six Month Summary Results

  • For the six months ended June 30, 2014, top line revenue increased 123%, or $8.5 million, to $15.5 million from $7.0 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2013.
  • During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded gains of $12.0 million from the disposal of assets compared to gains of $0.7 million on asset disposals for the same six month period last year.
  • EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $7.1 million, an improvement of 188% over the corresponding period in 2013. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014, including $2.0 million of non-cash depreciation and amortization, was $4.5 million, a 39% improvement from the net loss of $7.3 million for the six month period ended June 30, 2013, which included $1.1 million of non-cash depreciation and amortization.   
  • Basic and diluted loss per common share for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.27 compared to $0.43 for the six months ended June 30, 2013.
  • Total assets were $224.9 million as of June 30, 2014 compared to $237.4 million as of December 31, 2013.

Lawrence Bain, CEO and Chairman of IMH, said, "As markets continue to recover, we believe that we will be able to identify and fund attractive real estate-based debt and mezzanine investment opportunities in order to return to profitability and growth.  We believe that the changes put in place at the Company over the past several years are beginning to be reflected in our improved financial performance."

Mr. Bain continued, "We feel that our current portfolio of assets are favorably positioned and will be complemented by our future investment activities, which we believe will be significant. The recent changes announced in our capital structure should position us well for future earnings in the coming quarters, excluding certain anticipated one-time charges in the third quarter resulting from our debt restructuring. We anticipate the momentum to carry into the second half of 2014."

Reflecting specifically on both the Company's quarter over quarter performance and quarterly trends, Mr. Bain added, "I am never satisfied with losses. I am pleased, however, with the progress we are making to increase our revenues and decrease our core operating expenses. We continue to be burdened by high interest expenses on our debt, which we are aggressively working to reduce.  Our continued push toward improved earnings is underscored by the fact that we achieved positive EBITDA for the second straight quarter and an increase in EBITDA for the third straight quarter, both major milestones for the Company."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

EBITDA is considered a "non-GAAP financial measure" under SEC guidelines. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides a more complete understanding of ongoing operations and enhances comparability of current results to prior periods. The Company also believes that providing investors with this non-GAAP financial information, in addition to the related GAAP measures, gives investors greater transparency to the information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. However, because EBITDA is an incomplete measure of the Company's financial performance and involves differences from net income computed in accordance with GAAP, it should be considered along with, and not as an alternative to, the Company's net income computed in accordance with GAAP as a measure of the Company's financial performance.

A reconciliation of Company net losses, as reported, to EBITDA for the current and prior year's quarter and respective six month periods follow.
