Mezzanine is the borrower under certain mezzanine indebtedness of Justice, and in December 2013, the Partnership conveyed ownership of the Hotel to Operating. The Hotel is operated by the partnership as a full-service Hilton brand hotel pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement with HLT Franchise Holding LLC (“Hilton”) through January 31, 2030.

 

Justice entered into a Hotel management agreement (“HMA”) with Interstate Management Company, LLC (“Interstate”) to manage the Hotel with an effective takeover date of February 3, 2017. The term of the management agreement is for an initial period of ten years commencing on the takeover date and automatically renews for successive one (1) year periods, to not exceed five years in the aggregate, subject to certain conditions. Under the terms on the HMA, base management fee payable to Interstate shall be one and seven-tenths percent (1.70%) of total Hotel revenue.

 

The Company began managing the parking garage that is part of the Hotel in-house in 2016. Effective February 3, 2017, Interstate took over the management of the parking garage along with the Hotel.

 

Due to Securities Broker

 

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.

 

 - 8 - 

 

 

Obligations 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 condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Income Tax

 

The Company consolidates Justice (“Hotel”) for financial reporting purposes and is not taxed on its non-controlling interest in the Hotel.  The income tax expense during the nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 represent the income tax effect on the Company’s pretax income which includes its share in the net income of the Hotel. For the nine months ended March 31, 2018, a provisional net charge of $3,313,000 was included in the income tax expense as a result of reducing our deferred tax asset to the lower federal base rate of 21%.

 

Financial Condition and Liquidity

 

The Company’s cash flows are primarily generated from its Hotel operations. The Company also receives cash generated from the investment of its cash and marketable securities and other investments.

 

To fund the redemption of limited partnership interests and to repay the prior mortgage of $42,940,000, Justice obtained a $97,000,000 mortgage loan and a $20,000,000 mezzanine loan. The mortgage loan is secured by the Partnership’s principal asset, the Hotel. The mortgage loan bears an interest rate of 5.275% per annum with interest only payments due through January 2017. Beginning in February 2017, the loan began to amortize over a thirty-year period through its maturity date of January 2024. Outstanding principal balance on the loan was $94,090,000 and $95,018,000 as of March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. As additional security for the mortgage loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by the Company in favor of mortgage lender. The mezzanine loan is secured by the Operating membership interest held by Mezzanine and is subordinated to the Mortgage Loan. The mezzanine interest only loan bears interest at 9.75% per annum and matures in January 2024. As additional security for the mezzanine loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by the Company in favor of mezzanine lender.

 

Effective as of May 11, 2017, InterGroup agreed to become an additional guarantor under the limited guaranty and an additional indemnitor under the environmental indemnity for Justice Investors limited partnership’s $97,000,000 mortgage loan and the $20,000,000 mezzanine loan. Pursuant to the agreement, InterGroup is required to maintain a certain net worth and liquidity. As of March 31, 2019, InterGroup is in compliance with both requirements.

 

The Hotel has continued to generate positive operating income. While the debt service requirements related to the loans 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.

 

The Company has invested in short-term, income-producing instruments and in equity and debt securities when deemed appropriate. The Company's marketable securities are classified as trading with unrealized gains and losses recorded through the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Management believes that its cash, marketable securities, and the cash flows generated from the partnership management fees, will be adequate to meet the Company’s current and future obligations. Additionally, management believes there is significant appreciated value in the Hotel property to support additional borrowings, if necessary.

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

In November 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2016-18, Restricted Cash. ASU 2016-18 requires companies to include restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. Additionally, ASU 2016-18 requires a disclosure of a reconciliation between the statement of financial position and the statement of cash flows when the balance sheet includes more than one line item for cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash, and restricted cash equivalents. ASU 2016-18 is effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted, and will be applied retrospectively to all periods presented. The Company adopted ASU 2018-16 effective July 1, 2018. The adoption of ASU 2016-18 impacted the presentation of cash flows with inclusion of restricted cash flows for each of the presented periods.

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (ASU 2014-09), which amends the existing accounting standards for revenue recognition. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date, which delays the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year. The FASB also agreed to allow entities to choose to adopt the standard as of the original effective date. In March 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net) (ASU 2016-08) which clarifies the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations. The guidance includes indicators to assist an entity in determining whether it controls a specified good or service before it is transferred to the customers. The new standard permits two methods of adoption: retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented (full retrospective method), or retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the guidance recognized at the date of initial application (the modified retrospective method). We applied the modified retrospective transition method to all contracts upon the adoption of ASU 2014-09 effective July 1, 2018. We provided the additional required disclosures, but the cumulative adjustment from our comparative periods was zero in our condensed consolidated financial statements. See Note 2.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02), which supersedes existing guidance on accounting for leases in Leases (Topic 840) and generally requires all leases, including operating leases, to be recognized in the statement of financial position as right-of-use assets and lease liabilities by lessees. The provisions of ASU 2016-02 are to be applied using a modified retrospective approach and are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018; early adoption is permitted. We intend to adopt the standard on July 1, 2019. The Company is currently reviewing the effect of ASU No. 2016-02.

 

On June 16, 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” This ASU modifies the impairment model to utilize an expected loss methodology in place of the currently used incurred loss methodology, which will result in the timelier recognition of losses. ASU No. 2016-13 will be effective for us as of January 1, 2020. The Company is currently reviewing the effect of ASU No. 2016-13.

 

NOTE 2 – REVENUE

 

On July 1, 2018, we adopted ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, as described in Note 1, using the modified retrospective approach to all contracts resulting in no cumulative adjustment to accumulated deficit. The adoption of this standard did not impact the timing of our revenue recognition based on the short-term, day-to-day nature of our operations.

 

 - 10 - 

 

 

The following table present our revenues disaggregated by revenue streams.

 

For the three months ended March 31,  2019   2018 
Hotel revenues:          
Hotel rooms  $13,521,000   $11,714,000 
Food and beverage   1,218,000    1,748,000 
Garage   652,000    756,000 
Other operating departments   78,000    126,000 
Total hotel revenue  $15,469,000   $14,344,000 

 

For the nine months ended March 31,  2019   2018 
Hotel revenues:          
Hotel rooms  $38,608,000   $34,266,000 
Food and beverage   4,232,000    5,121,000 
Garage   2,160,000    2,272,000 
Other operating departments   276,000    309,000 
Total hotel revenue  $45,276,000   $41,968,000 

 

Performance obligations

 

We identified the following performance obligations for which revenue is recognized as the respective performance obligations are satisfied, which results in recognizing the amount we expect to be entitled to for providing the goods or services:

 

Cancelable room reservations or ancillary services are typically satisfied as the good or service is transferred to the hotel guest, which is generally when the room stay occurs.

 

Noncancelable room reservations and banquet or conference reservations represent a series of distinct goods or services provided over time and satisfied as each distinct good or service is provided, which is reflected by the duration of the room reservation.

 

Other ancillary goods and services are purchased independently of the room reservation at standalone selling prices and are considered separate performance obligations, which are satisfied when the related good or service is provided to the hotel guest.

 

Components of package reservations for which each component could be sold separately to other hotel guests are considered separate performance obligations and are satisfied as set forth above.

 

Hotel revenue primarily consists of hotel room rentals, revenue from accommodations sold in conjunction with other services (e.g., package reservations), food and beverage sales and other ancillary goods and services (e.g., parking). Revenue is recognized when rooms are occupied or goods and services have been delivered or rendered, respectively. Payment terms typically align with when the goods and services are provided. For package reservations, the transaction price is allocated to the performance obligations within the package based on the estimated standalone selling prices of each component.

 

 - 11 - 

 

 

We do not disclose the value of unsatisfied performance obligations for contracts with an expected length of one year or less. Due to the nature of our business, our revenue is not significantly impacted by refunds. Cash payments received in advance of guests staying at our hotel are refunded to hotel guests if the guest cancels within the specified time period, before any services are rendered. Refunds related to service are generally recognized as an adjustment to the transaction price at the time the hotel stay occurs or services are rendered.

 

Contract assets and liabilities

 

We do not have any material contract assets as of March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018 other than trade and other receivables, net on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Our receivables are primarily the result of contracts with customers, which are reduced by an allowance for doubtful accounts that reflects our estimate of amounts that will not be collected.

 

We record contract liabilities when cash payments are received or due in advance of guests staying at our hotel, which are presented within accounts payable and other liabilities on our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Contract liabilities increased to $673,000 as of March 31, 2019 from $571,000 as of June 30, 2018. The increase for the nine months ended March 31, 2019 was primarily driven by deposits received from upcoming groups, offset by $560,000 revenue recognized that was included in the advanced deposits balance as of June 30, 2018.

 

Contract costs

 

We consider sales commissions earned to be incremental costs of obtaining a contract with our customers. As a practical expedient, we expense these costs as incurred as our contracts with customers are less than one year.

NOTE 7 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

The carrying values of the Company’s financial instruments not required to be carried at fair value on a recurring basis approximate fair value due to their short maturities (i.e., accounts receivable, other assets, accounts payable and other liabilities) or the nature and terms of the obligation (i.e., other notes payable and mortgage notes payable).

 

The assets measured at fair value on a recurring basis are as follows:

 

As of  3/31/2019   6/30/2018 
  Total - Level 1   Total - Level 1 
Assets:        
Investment in marketable securities:          
Basic materials  $531,000   $462,000 
Consumer   424,000    - 
REITs and real estate companies   241,000    757,000 
Energy   159,000    45,000 
Healthcare   156,000    424,000 
Other   366,000    819,000 
   $1,877,000   $2,507,000 

 

The fair values of investments in marketable securities are determined by the most recently traded price of each security at the balance sheet date.

 

Financial assets that are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis and are not included in the tables above include “Other investments, net (non-marketable securities),” that were initially measured at cost and have been written down to fair value as a result of impairment. The following table shows the fair value hierarchy for these assets measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis as follows:

 

           Net loss for the nine months 
Assets  Level 3   March 31, 2019   ended March 31, 2019 
Other non-marketable investments  $196,000   $196,000   $(36,000)

 

           Net loss for the nine months 
Assets  Level 3   June 30, 2018   ended March 31, 2018 
Other non-marketable investments  $267,000   $267,000   $(72,000)

 

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 and holds less than 20% ownership in each of the 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 9 - SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

The Company operates in two reportable segments, the operation of the hotel (“Hotel Operations”) and the investment of its cash in marketable securities and other investments (“Investment Transactions”). These two operating segments, as presented in the consolidated financial statements, reflect how management internally reviews each segment’s performance. Management also makes operational and strategic decisions based on this same information.

 

Information below represents reporting segments for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively. Operating income from Hotel operations consists of the operation of the hotel and operation of the garage. Income (loss) from investment transactions consist of net investment gain (loss), impairment loss on other investments, net unrealized gain (loss) on other investments, dividend and interest income and trading and margin interest expense. The other segment consists of corporate general and administrative expenses and the income tax (expense) benefit for the entire Company.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The Company's principal source of revenue continues to be derived from its general and limited partnership interest in the Justice Investors Limited Partnership (“Justice” or the “Partnership”) inclusive of hotel room revenue, food and beverage revenue, garage revenue, and revenue from other operating departments. Justice owns 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.

 

The Hotel is operated by the Partnership as a full-service Hilton brand hotel pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement (the “License Agreement”) with Hilton. The Partnership entered into the License Agreement on December 10, 2004. The term of the License Agreement was for an initial period of 15 years commencing on the opening date, with an option to extend the License Agreement for another five years, subject to certain conditions. On June 26, 2015, the Partnership and Hilton entered into an amended franchise agreement which extended the License Agreement through 2030, modified the monthly royalty rate, extended geographic protection to the Partnership and also provided the Partnership certain key money cash incentives to be earned through 2030. The key money cash incentives were received on July 1, 2015.

 

On February 1, 2017, Justice entered into a Hotel management agreement (“HMA”) with Interstate Management Company, LLC (“Interstate”) to manage the Hotel with an effective takeover date of February 3, 2017. The term of HMA is for an initial period of ten years commencing on the takeover date and automatically renews for an additional year not to exceed five years in aggregate subject to certain conditions. The HMA also provides for Interstate to advance a key money incentive fee to the Hotel for capital improvements in the amount of $2,000,000 under certain terms and conditions described in a separate key money agreement.

 

The parking garage that is part of the Hotel property was managed by Ace Parking pursuant to a contract with the Partnership. The contract was terminated with an effective termination date of October 4, 2016. The Company began managing the parking garage in-house after the termination of Ace Parking. Effective February 3, 2017, Interstate took over the management of the parking garage along with the Hotel.

Room revenues increased by $1,807,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019 compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018 as a result of taking the optimal amount of group business with ancillary spending while growing higher rated transient segments. Food and beverage revenue decreased by $530,000 as a result of limiting midweek group business which resulted in fewer in house banquet events. Revenue from garage and other operating departments decreased mainly due to decrease in monthly parking revenue.

 

Total operating expenses increased by $805,000 due to increase in group commission, credit card fees, management fees, franchise fees, wages and benefits per labor agreements.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

 

The Company’s cash flows are primarily generated from its Hotel operations and general partner management fees. The Company also receives cash generated from the investment of its cash and marketable securities and other investments.

 

To fund the redemption of limited partnership interests and to repay the prior mortgage, Justice obtained a $97,000,000 mortgage loan and a $20,000,000 mezzanine loan in December of 2013. The mortgage loan is secured by the Partnership’s principal asset, the Hotel. The mortgage loan bears an interest rate of 5.275% per annum and matures in January 2024. Outstanding principal balance on the loan was $94,090,000 and $95,018,000 as of March 31, 2019 and June 30, 2018, respectively. As additional security for the mortgage loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by the Company in favor of mortgage lender. The mezzanine loan is a secured by the Operating membership interest held by Mezzanine and is subordinated to the Mortgage Loan. The mezzanine loan bears interest at 9.75% per annum and matures in January 2024. As additional security for the mezzanine loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by the Company in favor of mezzanine lender. Effective as of May 12, 2017, InterGroup agreed to become an additional guarantor under the limited guaranty and an additional indemnitor under the environmental indemnity for Justice Investors limited partnership’s $97,000,000 mortgage loan and the $20,000,000 mezzanine loan.

 

On July 2, 2014, the Partnership obtained from InterGroup (a related party) an unsecured loan in the principal amount of $4,250,000 at 12% per year fixed interest, with a term of two years, payable interest only each month. InterGroup received a 3% loan fee. The loan may be prepaid at any time without penalty. The current loan balance of $3,000,000 was extended to June 30, 2019. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, the Partnership made principal paydown of $1,250,000.

 

 - 22 - 

 

 

In April 2017, Portsmouth obtained from InterGroup an unsecured short-term loan in the amount of $1,000,000 at 5% per year fixed interest, with a term of five months and maturing September 6, 2017. On September 1st 2017, the short-term loan was extended to September 15, 2017 and paid off on September 13, 2017.

 

The Company has invested in short-term, income-producing instruments and in equity and debt securities when deemed appropriate. The Company's marketable securities are classified as trading with unrealized gains and losses recorded through the consolidated statements of operations.

 

Management believes that its cash, marketable securities, and the cash flows generated from the partnership management fees, will be adequate to meet the Company’s current and future obligations. Additionally, management believes there is significant appreciated value in the Hotel property to support additional borrowings, if necessary.

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 the Company has the power and ability 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.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND USE OF ESTIMATES

 

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 condensed consolidated 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. There have been no material changes to the Company’s critical accounting policies during the nine months ended March 31, 2019 except for the adoption of ASU 2016-18 and ASC 606. Please refer to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2018 for a summary of the critical accounting policies.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

We are a smaller reporting company and therefore, we are not required to provide information required by this Item of Form 10-Q.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

The Company’s management, with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the quarterly period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based upon such evaluation and on the material weakness noted below, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective in ensuring that information required to be disclosed in this filing is accumulated and communicated to management and is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms.

 

CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

As stated in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2017, we identified a material weakness in internal controls over financial reporting related to our deferred income taxes and income tax expense during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. During the quarter ended September 30, 2017, we hired a new tax CPA specialist to perform a detailed analysis which was completed for the year ended June 30, 2017. We also assigned our audit committee with oversight responsibilities for the process. The material weakness related to tax provision preparation had not been remediated in fiscal year 2018. While significant progress was made as of June 30, 2018, these controls were not operating completely effectively. The Company has taken further steps, including increased scrutiny over the tax provision preparation process, to remediate the material weakness and improved its internal control over financial reporting during the nine months ended March 31, 2019.
