PORTSMOUTH SQUARE, INC.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by Portsmouth Square, Inc. (“Portsmouth” or the “Company”), according to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Company believes the disclosures that are made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. Further, the condensed consolidated financial statements reflect, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (which included only normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair statement of the financial position, cash flows and results of operations as of and for the periods indicated. It is suggested that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements of Portsmouth and the notes therein included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2023. The June 30, 2023 condensed consolidated balance sheet was derived from the consolidated balance sheet as included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2023.

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of our wholly owned subsidiaries. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The results of operations for the nine months ended March 31, 2024 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year ending June 30, 2024.

 

Portsmouth’s primary business was conducted through its general and limited partnership interest in Justice Investors Limited Partnership, a California limited partnership (“Justice” or the “Partnership”). Effective July 15, 2021, Portsmouth completed the purchase of 100% of the limited partnership interest of Justice through the acquisition of the remaining 0.7% non-controlling interest. Effective December 23, 2021, the Partnership was dissolved. The financial statements of Justice were consolidated with those of the Company.

 

Prior to its dissolution effective December 23, 2021, Justice owned and operated a 544-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 through its subsidiaries Justice Operating Company, LLC (“Operating”) and Justice Mezzanine Company, LLC (“Mezzanine”). Mezzanine was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Partnership; Operating is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mezzanine. Effective December 23, 2021, Portsmouth replaced Justice as the single member of Mezzanine. Mezzanine is the borrower under certain mezzanine indebtedness of Portsmouth, and in December 2013, the Partnership conveyed ownership of the Hotel to Operating. The Hotel is a full-service Hilton brand hotel pursuant to a Franchise License Agreement with HLT Franchise Holding LLC (“Hilton”) through January 31, 2030.

 

Operating entered into a hotel management agreement (“HMA”) with Aimbridge Hospitality (“Aimbridge”) to manage the Hotel, along with its five-level parking garage, with an effective date of February 3, 2017. The term of the management agreement is for an initial period of ten years commencing on the February 3, 2017 date and automatically renews for successive one (1) year periods, not to exceed five years in the aggregate, subject to certain conditions. Under the terms of the HMA, base management fee payable to Aimbridge shall be one and seven-tenths percent (1.70%) of total Hotel revenue. In addition to the base management fee, Aimbridge shall be entitled to an annual incentive fee for each fiscal year equal to ten percent (10%) of the amount by which Gross Operating Profit in the current fiscal year exceeds the previous fiscal year’s Gross Operating Profit.

 

As of March 31, 2024, The InterGroup Corporation (“InterGroup”), a public company, owns approximately 75.7% of the outstanding common shares of Portsmouth and the Company’s Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, John V. Winfield, owns approximately 2.5% of the outstanding common shares of the Company. Mr. Winfield also serves as the President, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of InterGroup and owns approximately 68.6% of the outstanding common shares of InterGroup as of March 31, 2024.

There have been no material changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies during the nine months ended March 31, 2024. Please refer to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2023 for a summary of the significant accounting policies.

 

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

As of March 31, 2024, there was no material impact from the recent adoption of new accounting pronouncements, nor expected material impact from recently issued accounting pronouncements yet to be adopted, on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

Going Concern

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As discussed in Note 9 – Related Party and Other Financing Transactions, as of March 31, 2024, the outstanding balance consists of a senior mortgage loan and mezzanine loan totaling $106,045,000. Both loans matured on January 1, 2024 and were extended to January 1, 2025 on April 29, 2024 through Forbearance Agreements. In addition, the Company has recurring losses and has an accumulated deficit of $112,724,000 which includes a $64,100,000 increase adjustment made in December 2013 as a result of the partnership redemption.

 

Due to these factors and the uncertainty around the Company’s ability to successfully refinance the debt on favorable terms in the current lending environment gives rise to substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year after the financial statement issuance date.

 

On January 4, 2024, the Company was made aware of a notice of default (the “Notice”) issued by its senior loan special servicer LNR Partners, LLC to Justice Operating Company, LLC which is the wholly owned subsidiary of Portsmouth. The Notice states that the lender has rights as a result of such defaults, including, but not limited to, acceleration of the loans, foreclosure on collateral and other rights and remedies under the loan documents and otherwise available under the law. On January 10, 2024, the Company filed the required Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission. During the entire life of the outstanding debt, the Company has made all mortgage payments timely as of the date of maturity and as of March 31, 2024, there were no delinquent amounts due to the senior or mezzanine lenders. On April 29, 2024, the Company entered into forbearance agreements with its senior and mezzanine lenders which establishes, among other customary terms, the new maturity date of January 1, 2025 (see Note 11 - Subsequent Events). While the Company successfully entered into the aforementioned forbearance agreements, we continue our efforts to place a longer term refinancing solution to its current senior mortgage and mezzanine debt with potential lenders. As such, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional liquidity when needed or under acceptable terms, if at all.

 

In 2018-2019 the Company completed major improvements to its Hotel, such as the installation of a state-of-the-art high-speed internet Cisco Meraki system and updated all ethernet wiring with Cat6A and added the best available fiber to each guest room and common areas, added 55” and 65” Smart 4-K Samsung Televisions to all rooms and common areas, installed a new window-washing system and equipment, updated all computers and servers, and others. During 2021 and first part of calendar 2022, we took advantage of the slow periods to make certain capital improvements including resurfacing half of the hotel bathtubs that needed repair, refreshed meeting space and lobby paint and vinyl, replaced all bed frames and socks, and completed the carpet and wall covering corridor installation. In November 2022, we began our guestroom renovation and had completed approximately 402 guestrooms as of March 31, 2024. Hotel improvements are ongoing to remain competitive in this challenging San Francisco market and we anticipate completing the guestroom renovations by mid-June 2024. Once the Company completes its full renovation, management anticipates its high occupancy to continue and its average daily rates to increase as a result of the updated product. Additionally, the Company anticipates that total revenues will also increase as the hotel has had at least three levels or approximately 75 guest rooms out of service since November 2022 in order to be renovated. While we have no assurances that the financial markets will improve, we are cautiously optimistic about our ability to improve our revenues upon the completion of our renovation and the recovery of the San Francisco market. Additionally, there are major changes in the political landscape in San Francisco and a Mayor election this year that we believe could improve the overall condition of the City of San Francisco as a whole.

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the carrying amounts of assets, liabilities, and reported expenses that may be necessary if the Company were unable to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 2 - LIQUIDITY

 

Historically, our cash flows have been primarily generated from our Hotel operations. However, the current state of affairs of the City of San Francisco, its political challenges as well as the way its local government’s policies with regard to safety, drugs abuse, homelessness, crime, etc., have caused the City of San Francisco to be one of the slowest cities in the country to fully recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, since San Francisco is a top-heavy tech company city, the “remote work” initiatives have caused a slowdown in business travel and in person meetings. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Hotel enjoyed most of its revenues from business travel, conventions, self-contained groups, etc., and post pandemic, most revenues are generated from leisure travel which is generally at a lower guest room rate. For the nine months ended March 31, 2024, our net cash used in operating activities was $553,000. We continue to maintain several steps to preserve capital and increase liquidity at our Hotel, including implementing strict cost management measures to eliminate non-essential expenses, renegotiating certain reoccurring expenses, and temporarily closing certain hotel services and outlets. As the hospitality and travel environment continues to slowly recover in San Francisco, we will continue to evaluate what services we bring back. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, the Company continued to make capital improvements to the Hotel in the amount of $2,650,000 and anticipates continuing its guest room upgrade program during the remaining of fiscal year 2024.

 

The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3,572,000 and $2,295,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively. The Company had restricted cash of $1,637,000 and $2,911,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively. The Company had marketable securities, net of margin due to securities brokers, of $313,000 and $359,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively. These marketable securities are short-term investments and liquid in nature.

 

On July 2, 2014, the Partnership obtained from InterGroup an unsecured loan in the principal amount of $4,250,000 at 12% per year fixed interest, with a term of 2 years, with interest only payable each month. InterGroup received a 3% loan fee. The loan may be prepaid at any time without penalty. The loan was extended to July 31, 2023. On December 16, 2020, the Partnership and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased the Partnership’s borrowing from InterGroup as needed up to $10,000,000. Upon the dissolution of the Partnership in December 2021, Portsmouth assumed the Partnership’s note payable to InterGroup in the amount of $11,350,000. On December 31, 2021, Portsmouth and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased Portsmouth’s borrowing from InterGroup as needed up to $16,000,000. In July 2023, the note maturity date was extended to July 31, 2025 and the borrowing amount available was increased to $20,000,000. As of June 30, 2023 the balance of the loan was $15,700,000 net of loan amortization costs of zero. The Company agreed to a 0.5% loan modification fee for the increased borrowing of $10,000,000 payable to InterGroup. In March 2024, Portsmouth and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased Portsmouth’s borrowing amount available to $30,000,000. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, the Company borrowed an additional $4,400,000 to fund its hotel operations. As of March 31, 2024 the balance of the loan was $20,100,000 and the Company has not made any paid-downs to its note payable to InterGroup. The Company could amend its by-laws and increase the number of authorized shares to issue additional shares to raise capital in the public markets if needed.

 

The Company’s known short-term liquidity requirements primarily consist of funds necessary to pay for operating and other expenditures, including management and franchise fees, corporate expenses, payroll and related costs, taxes, interest and principal payments on our outstanding indebtedness, and repairs and maintenance of the Hotel.

 

Our long-term liquidity requirements primarily consist of funds necessary to pay for scheduled debt maturities and capital improvements of the Hotel. We will continue to finance our business activities primarily with existing cash, including from the activities described above, and cash generated from our operations. The objectives of our cash management policy are to increase existing leverage levels and the availability of liquidity, while minimizing operational costs. However, there can be no guarantee that management will be successful with its plan.

Non-cancelable 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 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

 

The Company does not have any material contract assets as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, other than trade and other receivables, net on our condensed consolidated balance sheets. Our receivables are primarily the result of contracts with customers, that were entered into within the past 12 months, which are reduced by a reserve for estimated credit losses that reflects our estimate of amounts that will not be collected and amount to $0 and $1,000 at March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively.

 

Portsmouth records 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 consolidated balance sheets and had a balance of $290,000 at July 1, 2023. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, the entire $290,000 was recognized as revenue. Contract liabilities increased to $291,000 as of March 31, 2024. Contract liabilities at July 1, 2022 was $493,000. During the nine months ended March 31, 2023, the entire $493,000 was recognized as revenue. Contract liabilities decreased to $364,000 as of March 31, 2023.

 

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.

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 in December 2013. The 10-year mortgage loan is secured by the Company’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 $86,045,000 and $87,240,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively, and matured on January 1, 2024. As additional security for the mortgage loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by Portsmouth in favor of the 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 had an interest rate of 9.75% per annum and a maturity date of January 1, 2024. As additional security for the mezzanine loan, there is a limited guaranty executed by Portsmouth in favor of the mezzanine lender. On July 31, 2019, Mezzanine refinanced the mezzanine loan by entering into a new mezzanine loan agreement (“New Mezzanine Loan Agreement”) with Cred Reit Holdco LLC in the amount of $20,000,000. The prior Mezzanine Loan which had a 9.75% per annum interest rate was paid off. Interest rate on the new mezzanine loan is 7.25% and the loan matured on January 1, 2024. Interest only payments are due monthly. In September 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with Hart Advisors Group, LLC to assist in the negotiations of loan modifications with the senior and mezzanine lenders. On January 4, 2024, the Company was made aware of a notice of default (the “Notice”) issued by its senior loan special servicer LNR Partners, LLC to Operating which is the wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Notice states that the lender has rights as a result of such defaults, including, but not limited to, acceleration of the loans, foreclosure on collateral and other rights and remedies under the loan documents and otherwise available under the law. During the entire life of the outstanding debt, the Company has made all mortgage payments timely as of the date of maturity and as of March 31, 2024, there were no delinquent amounts due to the senior or mezzanine lenders. On April 29, 2024, Operating entered into a Forbearance Agreement with its senior and mezzanine lenders (see Note 11 - Subsequent Events).

 

Effective 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 certain net worth and liquidity. As of March 31, 2024, InterGroup is in compliance with both requirements. Operating has not been meeting certain of its loan covenants such as the Debt Service Coverage Ratio (“DSCR”) which would trigger the creation of a lockbox by the Lender for all cash collected by the Hotel. However, such lockbox has been created and utilized from the loan inception and will be in place up to loan maturity regardless of the DSCR.

 

The Company’s Board of Directors is currently comprised of directors John V. Winfield, William J. Nance, John C. Love, Yvonne Murphy, and Steve Grunwald. All the Company’s directors also serve as directors of InterGroup. The Company’s director and Chairman of the Audit Committee, William J. Nance.

 

John V. Winfield serves as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Company and InterGroup. Effective June 2016, Mr. Winfield became the Managing Director of Justice until its dissolution in December 2021. Depending on certain market conditions and various risk factors, the Chief Executive Officer and InterGroup 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 the resources of InterGroup, at risk in connection with investment decisions made on behalf of the Company.

On May 24, 2021, John V. Winfield resigned effective immediately as the Company’s President and the Company’s Board of Directors elected David C. Gonzalez as the Company’s new President, effective as of May 24, 2021.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

 

The Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $5,209,000 and $5,206,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively. The Company had marketable securities, net of margin due to securities brokers, of $313,000 and $359,000 as of March 31, 2024 and June 30, 2023, respectively. These marketable securities are short-term investments and liquid in nature.

 

On July 2, 2014, the Partnership obtained from InterGroup an unsecured loan in the principal amount of $4,250,000 at 12% per year fixed interest, with a term of 2 years, with interest only payable each month. InterGroup received a 3% loan fee. The loan may be prepaid at any time without penalty. The loan was extended to July 31, 2023. On December 16, 2020, the Partnership and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased the Partnership’s borrowing from InterGroup as needed up to $10,000,000. Upon the dissolution of the Partnership in December 2021, Portsmouth assumed the Partnership’s note payable to InterGroup in the amount of $11,350,000. On December 31, 2021, Portsmouth and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased Portsmouth’s borrowing from InterGroup as needed up to $16,000,000. In July 2023, the note maturity date was extended to July 31, 2025 and the borrowing amount available was increased to $20,000,000. As of June 30, 2023 the balance of the loan was $15,700,000 net of loan amortization costs of zero. The Company agreed to a 0.5% loan modification fee for the increased borrowing of $10,000,000 payable to InterGroup. In March 2024, Portsmouth and InterGroup entered into a loan modification agreement which increased Portsmouth’s borrowing amount available to $30,000,000. During the nine months ended March 31, 2024, the Company borrowed an additional $4,400,000 to fund its hotel operations. As of March 31, 2024 the balance of the loan was $20,100,000 and the Company has not made any paid-downs to its note payable to InterGroup. The Company could amend its by-laws and increase the number of authorized shares to issue additional shares to raise capital in the public markets if needed.

 

The Company’s known short-term liquidity requirements primarily consist of funds necessary to pay for operating and other expenditures, including management and franchise fees, corporate expenses, payroll and related costs, taxes, interest and principal payments on our outstanding indebtedness, and repairs and maintenance of the Hotel.

 

Our long-term liquidity requirements primarily consist of funds necessary to pay for scheduled debt maturities and capital improvements of the Hotel. We will continue to finance our business activities primarily with existing cash, including from the activities described above, and cash generated from our operations. The objectives of our cash management policy are to increase existing leverage levels and the availability of liquidity, while minimizing operational costs. We believe that our cash on hand, along with other potential sources of liquidity that management may be able to obtain, will be sufficient to fund our working capital needs. The Partnership obtained from Intergroup has provided additional funding as needed to assist as a source of liquidity. As well as our capital lease and debt obligations, even if current levels of occupancy and revenue per occupied room (“RevPAR”, calculated by multiplying the hotel’s average daily room rate by its occupancy percentage) were to persist for at least the next twelve months and beyond. However, there can be no guarantee that management will be successful with its plan.

 

Going Concern

 

The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As discussed in Note 9 – Related Party and Other Financing Transactions, as of March 31, 2024, the outstanding balance consists of a senior mortgage loan and mezzanine loan totaling $106,045,000. Both loans matured on January 1, 2024 and were extended to January 1, 2025 on April 29, 2024 through Forbearance Agreements. In addition, the Company has recurring losses and has an accumulated deficit of $112,724,000 which includes a $64,100,000 increase adjustment made in December 2013 as a result of the partnership redemption.

 

- 23 -
 


 

Due to these factors and the uncertainty around the Company’s ability to successfully refinance the debt on favorable terms in the current lending environment gives rise to substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year after the financial statement issuance date.

 

On January 4, 2024, the Company was made aware of a notice of default (the “Notice”) issued by its senior loan special servicer LNR Partners, LLC to Justice Operating Company, LLC which is the wholly owned subsidiary of Portsmouth. The Notice states that the lender has rights as a result of such defaults, including, but not limited to, acceleration of the loans, foreclosure on collateral and other rights and remedies under the loan documents and otherwise available under the law. On January 10, 2024, the Company filed the required Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission. During the entire life of the outstanding debt, the Company has made all mortgage payments timely as of the date of maturity and as of March 31, 2024, there were no delinquent amounts due to the senior or mezzanine lenders. On April 29, 2024, the Company entered into forbearance agreements with its senior and mezzanine lenders which establishes, among other customary terms, the new maturity date of January 1, 2025 (see Note 11 - Subsequent Events). While the Company successfully entered into the aforementioned forbearance agreements, we continue our efforts to place a longer term refinancing solution to its current senior mortgage and mezzanine debt with potential lenders. As such, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional liquidity when needed or under acceptable terms, if at all.

 

In 2018-2019 the Company completed major improvements to its Hotel, such as the installation of a state-of-the-art high-speed internet Cisco Meraki system and updated all ethernet wiring with Cat6A and added the best available fiber to each guest room and common areas, added 55” and 65” Smart 4-K Samsung Televisions to all rooms and common areas, installed a new window-washing system and equipment, updated all computers and servers, and others. During 2021 and first part of calendar 2022, we took advantage of the slow periods to make certain capital improvements including resurfacing half of the hotel bathtubs that needed repair, refreshed meeting space and lobby paint and vinyl, replaced all bed frames and socks, and completed the carpet and wall covering corridor installation. In November 2022, we began our guestroom renovation and had completed approximately 402 guestrooms as of March 31, 2024. Hotel improvements are ongoing to remain competitive in this challenging San Francisco market and we anticipate completing the guestroom renovations by mid-June 2024. Once the Company completes its full renovation, management anticipates its high occupancy to continue and its average daily rates to increase as a result of the updated product. Additionally, the Company anticipates that total revenues will also increase as the hotel has had at least three levels or approximately 75 guest rooms out of service since November 2022 in order to be renovated. While we have no assurances that the financial markets will improve, we are cautiously optimistic about our ability to improve our revenues upon the completion of our renovation and the recovery of the San Francisco market. Additionally, there are major changes in the political landscape in San Francisco and a Mayor election this year that we believe could improve the overall condition of the City of San Francisco as a whole.

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the carrying amounts of assets, liabilities, and reported expenses that may be necessary if the Company were unable to continue as a going concern.

 

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 Aimbridge 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. 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 ESTIMATES

 

Critical accounting estimates 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 ongoing 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 or methods or assumptions during the nine months ended March 31, 2024.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

Judgment is required in addressing the future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our consolidated financial statements or tax returns (e.g., realization of deferred tax assets, changes in tax laws, or interpretations thereof). In addition, we are subject to examination of our income tax returns by the IRS and other tax authorities. A change in the assessment of the outcomes of such matters could materially impact our consolidated financial statements. We evaluate tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return to determine whether they are more likely than not of being sustained, assuming that the tax reporting positions will be examined by taxing authorities with full knowledge of all relevant information, prior to recording the related tax benefit in our consolidated financial statements. If a position does not meet the more likely than not standard, the benefit cannot be recognized. Assumptions, judgment, and the use of estimates are required in determining if the “more likely than not” standard has been met when developing the provision for income taxes. A change in the assessment of the “more likely than not” standard with respect to a position could materially impact our consolidated financial statements.

 

DEFERRED INCOME TAXES – VALUATION ALLOWANCE

 

We assess the realizability of our deferred tax assets quarterly and recognize a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that some or all of our deferred tax assets are not realizable. This assessment is completed by tax jurisdiction and relies on the weight of both positive and negative evidence available, with significant weight placed on recent financial results. Cumulative pre-tax losses for the three-year period are considered significant objective negative evidence that some or all of our deferred tax assets may not be realizable. Cumulative reported pre-tax income is considered objectively verifiable positive evidence of our ability to generate positive pre-tax income in the future. In accordance with GAAP, when there is a recent history of pre-tax losses, there is little or no weight placed on forecasts for purposes of assessing the recoverability of our deferred tax assets. When necessary, we use systematic and logical methods to estimate when deferred tax liabilities will reverse and generate taxable income and when deferred tax assets will reverse and generate tax deductions. Assumptions, judgment, and the use of estimates are required when scheduling the reversal of deferred tax assets and liabilities, and the exercise is inherently complex and subjective. However, significant judgment will be required to determine the timing and amount of any reversal of the valuation allowance in future periods.

HOTEL ASSETS AND DEFINITE-LIVED INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

We evaluate property and equipment, and definite-lived intangible assets for impairment quarterly, and when events or circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable, we evaluate the net book value of the assets by comparing to the projected undiscounted cash flows of the assets. We use judgment to determine whether indications of impairment exist and consider our knowledge of the hospitality industry, historical experience, location of the property, market conditions, and property-specific information available at the time of the assessment. The results of our analysis could vary from period to period depending on how our judgment is applied and the facts and circumstances available at the time of the analysis. When an indicator of impairment exists, judgment is also required in determining the assumptions and estimates to use within the recoverability analysis and when calculating the fair value of the asset or asset group, if applicable. Changes in economic and operating conditions impacting the judgments used could result in impairments to our long-lived assets in future periods. Historically, changes in estimates used in the property and equipment and definite-lived intangible assets impairment assessment process have not resulted in material impairment charges in subsequent periods as a result of changes made to those estimates. There were no indicators of impairment on its hotel investments or intangible assets and accordingly no impairment losses recorded during the nine months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

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 their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) were not effective because of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Specifically, the Company’s management has concluded that our control around the interpretation and accounting for the deferred tax asset valuation allowance was not effectively designed or maintained. In light of this material weakness, we performed additional analysis as deemed necessary to ensure that our financial statements were prepared in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, management believes that the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q present fairly in all material respects our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the period presented.

 

CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

As stated in the Company’s Form 10-K for year ended June 30, 2023, we identified a material weakness in internal controls over financial reporting related to our accounting for the deferred tax asset valuation allowance was not effectively designed or maintained. We hired a new tax provision consultant to perform detailed analysis moving forward. The Company has taken steps to remediate the material weakness and improve its internal controls over financial reporting during the last quarterly period covered by this Form 10-Q.

OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

Portsmouth Square, Inc. (the “Company”), through its operating company Justice Operating Company, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Justice”), is the owner of the real property located at 750 Kearny Street in San Francisco, currently improved with a 27 – story building which houses a Hilton Hotel (the “Property”). The Property was purchased and improved by predecessor entities pursuant to a series of agreements with the City and County of San Francisco (the “City”) in the early 1970’s. The terms of the agreements and subsequent approvals and permits included a condition by which the Company’s predecessors were required to construct an ornamental overhead pedestrian bridge across Kearny Street, connecting the Property to a nearby City park and underground parking garage known as Portsmouth Square (the “Bridge”). Included in the approval process was the City’s issuance of a Major Encroachment Permit (“Permit”) allowing the Bridge to span over Kearney Street. As of May 24, 2022, the City has purported to revoke the Permit and on June 13, 2022, directed Justice to submit a general bridge removal and restoration plan (the “Plan”) at its expense. Justice disputes the legality of the purported revocation of the Permit. Justice further disputes the existence of any legal or contractual obligation to remove the Bridge at its expense. In particular, representatives of the Company and Justice participated in meetings with the City at various times on and after August 1, 2019, to discuss a collaborative process for the possible removal of the Bridge. Until the purported revocation of the Permit in 2022, the City representatives repeatedly and consistently promised and agreed that the City will pay for the associated costs of any Bridge removal. Nevertheless, without waiving any rights, in an effort to understand all of the available options, and to provide a response to the City’s directives, Justice has engaged a Project Manager, a structural engineering firm and an architect to advise on a Plan for the Bridge removal, as well as the reconstruction of the front of the Hilton Hotel. In that regard, the Company and Justice have been working cooperatively with the City on the process for removal of the Bridge and its related physical encroachments, including obtaining regulatory approvals and necessary permits. A final Plan is currently not expected to be completed until mid-2024, and permits are unlikely to be obtained until late 2024 at the earliest. Justice is currently in discussion with the City regarding both the process and financial responsibility for the implementation of the Plan and reconstruction of any impacted portions of the Hotel. Those discussions are expected to continue at least through the second calendar quarter of 2024.

 

The Company may be subject to legal proceedings, claims, and litigation arising in the ordinary course of business. The Company will defend itself vigorously against any such claims. Management does not believe that the impact of such matters will have a material effect on the financial conditions or result of operations when resolved.
