FIRST HARTFORD CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1.             Business and Significant Accounting Policies:

 

Description of Business

 

First Hartford Corporation was incorporated in Maine in 1909 and is engaged in the purchase, development, ownership, management and sale of real estate.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of First Hartford Corporation (the “Company”), its wholly owned subsidiaries, and all other entities in which the Company has a controlling interest, including those where the Company has been determined to be a primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity or meets certain criteria as a sole general partner or managing member in accordance with the consolidation guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification. As such, included in the consolidated financial statements are the accounts of Rockland Place Apartments Limited Partnership and Clarendon Hill Somerville Limited Partnership. The Company’s ownership percentage in these variable interest entity partnerships is nominal.  All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and adjustments to previously established loss provisions) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  Operating results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of April 30, 2011 was derived from the audited financial statements for the year then ended. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011.

           

Because the Company is engaged in the development and sale of real estate at various stages of construction, the operating cycle may extend beyond one year. Accordingly, following the usual practice of the real estate industry, the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets are unclassified.

 

Change in Accounting Policy

 

The Company adopted as required, Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-17 Consolidations (Topic 810):  Improvements to Financial Reporting by Enterprises Involved with Variable Interest Entities effective May 1, 2010.  Under this ASU, the identification of a primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity (“VIE”) is defined as the enterprise that has both of the following characteristics:  a) the power to direct the activities of a VIE that most significantly impacts the VIE’s economic performance, and b) the obligation to absorb losses of the VIE or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE.  Based on this updated guidance, the Company determined that it is no longer considered to be the primary beneficiary of CP Associates, LLC (“CP Associates”).  As a result of the initial application of this updated guidance, the Company deconsolidated CP Associates as of May 1, 2010 and has measured its 50% retained interest in CP Associates at the carrying amount of the Company’s retained interest had this updated guidance been effective when CP Associates was initially formed.  The difference between the net amount derecognized from the

1.             Business and Significant Accounting Policies (continued):

 

Change in Accounting Policy (continued):

 

Company’s balance sheet and the amount of the Company’s 50% retained interest in CP Associates has been recognized as a cumulative effect adjustment to the Company’s equity as of May 1, 2010.

 

Currently, there are no ASU’s that the Company is required to adopt which are likely to have a material effect on its financial statements.

 

Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share

 

Basic net income (loss) per share amounts are determined using the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share amounts include the weighted average outstanding common shares as well as dilutive common stock options of 105,263 for the three months ended July 31, 2011.  Common stock options of 125,566 were anti-dilutive for the three months ended July 31, 2010.

 

Financial Instruments and Fair Value

 

The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, marketable securities, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and debt. The fair values of accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses are estimated to approximate their carrying amounts because of their relative short-term nature. In general, the carrying amount of variable rate debt approximates its fair value. Further, the carrying amount of fixed rate debt approximates fair value since the interest rates on the debt approximates the Company’s current incremental borrowing rate. Marketable securities consist of equity securities and are stated at fair value based on the last sale of the period obtained from recognized stock exchanges (i.e. Level 1). There were no significant gross unrealized gains or temporary losses on such securities as of either July 31, 2011 or April 30, 2011.  Net unrealized gains of $64,210 are included in accumulated-other comprehensive income.

 

2.             Consolidated Variable Interest Entities and Investments in Affiliated Partnerships:

Item 2.             MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL

                         CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The financial and business analysis below provides information which the Company believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of the Company’s financial position and results of operations.  This financial and business analysis should be read in conjunction with the condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes.

 

The following discussion and certain other sections of this Report on Form 10-Q contain statements reflecting the Company’s views about its future performance and constitutes “forward-looking statements” under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These views may involve risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and may cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in such forward-looking statements.  Readers should consider how various factors including changes in general economic conditions, cost of materials, interest rates and availability of funds, and the nature of competition and relationships with key customers may affect the Company’s performance.  The Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or other.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

There have been no significant changes in the Company’s critical accounting policies from those included in Item 7 of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2011 under the subheading "Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates".

 

Results of Operations

 

Rental Income

 

Rental income increased approximately $222,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 compared to the period ended July 31, 2010.  The increase is mainly from Clarendon Towers as a result of having fewer apartments unoccupied for renovations.

Item 2.             MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL

                         CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (continued):

 

Service Income

 

Service income increased approximately $142,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 compared to the period ended July 31, 2010, as a result of an increase in fee income from CVS Pharmacy.

 

Interest Expense

 

Interest expense increased approximately $222,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 compared to the period ended July 31, 2010.  The increase is from additional borrowings for construction costs on the Clarendon Towers project. 

 

Equity in Earnings of Unconsolidated Subsidiaries.

 

The equity in earnings of unconsolidated subsidiaries increased approximately $576,000 for the three months ended July 31, 2011 compared to the period ended July 31, 2010.  Included in the earnings are gains or (losses) on derivatives from C.P. Associates (CP) which was deconsolidated as of May 1, 2010.  In the period ended July 31, 2010 (CP) had a loss from the change in the fair value of its derivatives of approximately $1,086,000 of which 50% or ($543,000) was charged to the Company.  In the period ended July 31, 2011 CP had a gain on the change in the fair value of its derivatives of $330,000 of which 50% ($165,000) was credited to the Company.  Of the $576,000 change $378,000 was due to derivatives.  This is not a cash item and does not in management’s opinion, indicate a trend in earnings.

 

Capital Resource and Liquidity

 

The Company ended the period with approximately $866,000 of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents.  The unrestricted cash and cash equivalent including approximately $474,000 belonging to less than wholly owned consolidated partnerships (Rockland Place, LP, $158,000 and Clarendon Hill Somerville, LP, $315,000).  Funds received from CVS Pharmacy, which are to be paid out in connection with CVS developments amounted to approximately $1,008,000 and is included in restricted cash and cash equivalents.

 

In the April 30, 2011 10K the Company recited a list of items that supports the Company’s contention that it believes that it has sufficient liquidity without any need to borrow funds to fund operations.

 

As of July 31, 2011, the Company has $143,339,911 of mortgages and notes payable outstanding.  Maturities thereon which require cash payments over the next twelve months approximate those as of April 30, 2011.  Expenditures for renovation construction projects during that same time frame will continue to be funded from proceeds under existing borrowing arrangements and from capital contribution commitments from limited partners in the Company’s VIEs.  Further, the Company expects that cash provided by operating activities along with its available cash resources as of July 31, 2011 will be sufficient to fund other activities.

Item 4.             CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES (continued):

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures (continued):

 

our management, including our President and Treasurer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We conducted an evaluation (the “Evaluation”), under the supervision and with the participation of our President and Treasurer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (“Disclosure Controls”) as of the end of the period covered by this report pursuant to Rule 13a-15b of the Exchange Act.
