Stratus Kingwood Place, L.P.
On August 3, 2018, Stratus Kingwood Place, L.P., a Texas limited partnership and a subsidiary of Stratus (the Kingwood, L.P.), completed a $10.7 million private placement, approximately $7 million of which, combined with a $6.75 million loan from Comerica Bank, was used to purchase a 54-acre tract of land located in Kingwood, Texas for $13.5 million, for the development, subject to obtaining a construction loan and building permits, of Kingwood Place, a new H-E-B, L.P. (HEB)-anchored mixed-use development project (Kingwood Place). The development plan for Kingwood Place includes a 103,000-square-foot HEB store, 41,000 square feet of retail space, 6 retail pads, and an 11-acre parcel planned for approximately 300 multi-family units. The Kingwood, L.P. issued, in a private placement exempt from registration under federal and state securities laws, Class B limited partnership interests to a limited number of investors (the Kingwood Class B limited partners), for $10.7 million (the Kingwood Offering), representing approximately 70 percent of the projected partnership equity.

DISPOSITIONS
The Oaks at Lakeway. On February 15, 2017, Stratus sold The Oaks at Lakeway to FHF I Oaks at Lakeway, LLC for $114.0 million in cash. Net cash proceeds were $50.8 million after repayment of the Lakeway construction loan. Stratus used a portion of these net cash proceeds to pay indebtedness outstanding under the Comerica Bank credit facility. The parties entered into three master lease agreements at closing: (1) one covering unleased in-line retail space, with a 5-year term, (2) one covering four unleased pad sites, three of which have 10-year terms, and one of which has a 15-year term, and (3) one covering the hotel pad with a 99-year term. As specified conditions are met, primarily consisting of the tenant executing a lease, commencing payment of rent and taking occupancy, leases will be assigned to the purchaser and the corresponding property will be removed from the master lease, reducing Stratus' master lease payment obligations. Stratus' master lease payment obligation, which currently approximates $180 thousand per month, is expected to decline over time until leasing is complete and all leases are assigned to the purchaser.

Stratus agreed to guarantee the obligations of its selling subsidiary under the sales agreement, up to a liability cap of two percent of the purchase price. This cap does not apply to Stratus' obligation to satisfy the selling subsidiary's indemnity obligations for its broker commissions or similar compensation or Stratus' liability in guaranteeing the selling subsidiary's obligations under the master leases. To secure its obligations under the master leases, Stratus has provided a $1.5 million irrevocable letter of credit with a three-year term.

At the date of sale, Stratus allocated the purchase price for The Oaks at Lakeway between two performance obligations based on the relative fair values of each. The first performance obligation, to deliver the completed and leased portion of the property, was performed on the date of sale. The second performance obligation was to complete construction of the remaining buildings and leasing of the vacant space. The obligations under master leases were considered variable consideration and are recorded as reductions to the contract liability. The hotel pad was leased to a hotel operator under a ground lease at the date of sale. However, the hotel tenant had not commenced rent payments or construction of the hotel. At the date of the sale, primarily because of the uncertainty related to the hotel tenant’s performance under its ground lease, the probability-weighted estimate of the obligations under the master leases reduced the sale consideration such that no gain was recognized on the sale.

Once the hotel tenant began paying rent in May 2017 and obtained construction financing and commenced construction of the hotel in August 2017, the probability-weighted estimate of Stratus’ obligations under the master leases was significantly reduced, and a gain of $24.3 million related to the first performance obligation was recognized in third-quarter 2017. A contract liability of $9.9 million is presented as a deferred gain in the

9


consolidated balance sheets at September 30, 2018, compared with $11.3 million at December 31, 2017. The reduction in the deferred gain balance primarily reflects master lease payments. The contract liability, as reduced by future master lease payments, will be recognized as additional gain as Stratus fulfills the remaining performance obligation.

Upon the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway, HEB earned a profit participation of $2.5 million (of which $2.2 million was paid at closing), which is presented separately in the consolidated statements of comprehensive (loss) income.

Barton Creek Village. On February 28, 2017, Stratus completed the sale of its 3,085-square-foot bank building and an adjacent undeveloped 4.1 acre tract of land in Barton Creek, for $3.1 million and recorded a gain on the sale of $1.1 million. In connection with the sale, a $2.1 million paydown was made on the Barton Creek Village term loan.

5.
FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Fair value accounting guidance includes a hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 inputs) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 inputs).

The carrying value for certain Stratus financial instruments (i.e., cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts payable and accrued liabilities) approximates fair value because of their short-term nature and generally negligible credit losses.

A summary of the carrying amount and fair value of Stratus' other financial instruments follows (in thousands):

Debt. Stratus' debt is recorded at cost and is not actively traded. Fair value is estimated based on discounted future expected cash flows at estimated current market interest rates. Accordingly, Stratus' debt is classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of debt does not represent the amounts that will ultimately be paid upon the maturities of the loans.

Interest Rate Swap Agreement. The interest rate swap does not qualify for hedge accounting and changes in its fair value are recorded in the consolidated statements of comprehensive (loss) income. Stratus evaluated the counterparty credit risk associated with the interest rate swap agreement, which is considered a Level 3 input, but did not consider such risk to be significant. Therefore, the interest rate swap agreement is classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

Includes net reductions for unamortized debt issuance costs of $2.4 million at September 30, 2018, and $2.1 million at December 31, 2017.

As discussed in Note 3, on August 3, 2018, Kingwood, L.P. entered into a one year, $6.75 million loan with Comerica Bank to purchase a 54-acre tract of land located in Kingwood, Texas, for the development, subject to obtaining a construction loan and building permits, of Kingwood Place. The loan bears interest at the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) plus 4.0 percent. Borrowings on the Kingwood Place loan are secured by the Kingwood project, and are guaranteed by Stratus. The Kingwood Place loan contains the same financial covenants in place on Stratus’ Comerica Bank Credit Facility, including a requirement that Stratus maintains a net asset value of $125 million and an aggregate promissory note debt-to-gross asset value of less than 50 percent.

On June 29, 2018, Stratus entered into a loan agreement with Comerica Bank to modify, increase and extend Stratus’ Comerica Bank credit facility, which was scheduled to mature on November 30, 2018. The new loan agreement provides for (1) an increase in the revolving credit facility from $45.0 million to $60.0 million, (2) a $7.5 million sublimit for letters of credit issuance and (3) an extension of the maturity date from November 30, 2018, to June 29, 2020. Advances under the credit facility bear interest at the annual LIBOR plus 4.0 percent. The Comerica Bank credit facility is secured by substantially all of Stratus' assets, except for properties that are encumbered by separate debt financing. The loan agreement contains financial covenants usual and customary for loan agreements of this nature, including a requirement that Stratus maintains a net asset value of $125 million and an aggregate promissory note debt-to-gross asset value of less than 50 percent. As of September 30, 2018, Stratus had $3.8 million available under its $60.0 million Comerica Bank revolving line of credit, with $4.1 million of letters of credit committed against the credit facility.

As discussed in Note 3, on June 19, 2018, Stratus entered into a $26 million construction loan with Texas Capital Bank (The Saint Mary construction loan) to finance the initial phase of The Saint Mary. Stratus will fully guaranty The Saint Mary construction loan. The repayment guaranty will be reduced to 50 percent upon issuance of a certificate of occupancy for The Saint Mary and will be eliminated when the project debt service coverage ratio equals or exceeds 1.25:1.0. Interest is variable at the one-month LIBOR plus 3.0 percent. Payments of interest only will be due and payable monthly, and outstanding principal is payable at maturity of June 19, 2021. Outstanding amounts will be secured by The Saint Mary and all subsequent improvements. The construction loan agreement and related document contain affirmative and negative covenants usual and customary for loan agreements of this nature. Stratus may extend the maturity of this loan for up to two additional 12-month periods if certain conditions are met, including debt service coverage ratio thresholds. As of September 30, 2018, no amounts were drawn on The Saint Mary construction loan.

For a description of Stratus' other debt, refer to Note 6 in the Stratus 2017 Form 10-K.

Interest Expense and Capitalization. Interest costs (before capitalized interest) totaled $4.3 million in third-quarter 2018, $3.1 million in third-quarter 2017, $11.4 million for the first nine months of 2018 and $9.3 million for the first nine months of 2017. Stratus' capitalized interest costs totaled $2.1 million in third-quarter 2018, $1.5 million in third-quarter 2017, $6.0 million for the first nine months of 2018 and $4.3 million for the first nine months of 2017, primarily related to development activities at Barton Creek.

Equity. Stratus' Comerica Bank credit facility requires the bank's prior written consent to pay a dividend on Stratus' common stock. On March 15, 2017, Stratus' Board of Directors (the Board), after receiving written consent from Comerica Bank, declared a special cash dividend of $1.00 per share ($8.1 million), which was paid on April 18, 2017, to stockholders of record on March 31, 2017. The special cash dividend was declared after the Board’s consideration of the results of the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway. Comerica Bank’s consent to the payment of this special dividend is not indicative of the bank’s willingness to consent to the payment of future dividends. The declaration of future dividends is at the discretion of the Board, subject to the restrictions under Stratus' Comerica Bank credit facility, and will depend on Stratus' financial results, cash requirements, projected compliance with covenants in its debt agreements, outlook and other factors deemed relevant by the Board.

7.
PROFIT PARTICIPATION INCENTIVE PLAN
On July 11, 2018, the Stratus Compensation Committee of the Board (the Committee) unanimously adopted the Stratus Profit Participation Incentive Plan (the Plan), which provides participants with economic incentives tied to the success of the development projects designated by the Committee as approved projects under the Plan. Under the Plan, 25 percent of the profit for each approved project following a capital transaction (as defined in the Plan) will be set aside in a pool. The Committee will allocate participation interests in each pool to select executi

11


ves, other employees and consultants determined to be instrumental in the success of the project. The profit is equal to the net proceeds to Stratus from a capital transaction after Stratus has received a return of its costs and expenses and any capital contributions and a preferred return of 10 percent per year on the approved project. Provided the applicable service conditions are met, each participant is eligible to earn a bonus equal to his or her allocated participation interest in the applicable profit pool. Bonuses under the Plan are payable in cash prior to March 15th of the year following the capital transaction, unless the participant is an executive officer, in which case annual cash payouts under the Plan are limited to no more than four times the executive officer’s base salary, and any amounts due under the Plan in excess of that amount will be converted to an equivalent number of stock-settled restricted stock units with a one-year vesting period.

If a capital transaction has not occurred prior to the third anniversary of the date an approved project is substantially complete (a valuation event), the Committee will obtain a third-party appraisal of the approved project as of the valuation event. Based on the appraised value, the Committee will determine if any profit would have been generated after applying the hurdles described above, and if so, the amount of any bonus that would have been attributable to each participant. Any such amount will convert into an equivalent number of stock-settled restricted stock units that will vest in annual installments over a three-year period, provided that the participant satisfies the applicable service conditions.

On August 2, 2018, the Committee designated seven existing development projects as approved projects under the Plan, and allocated participation interests in each pool to certain executives, employees and consultants. As of September 30, 2018, one of those approved projects was substantially complete.

Because of uncertainty in estimating future market conditions and development plans and costs for approved projects, the timing and amount of bonus awards under the Plan cannot currently be reliably determined. As such, no amounts have been recorded for bonus awards under the Plan as of September 30, 2018. Stratus will record estimates of such amounts for an approved project when they can be reliably determined, which is currently expected to be at the time a capital transaction is announced or when a valuation event occurs.

8.
INCOME TAXES
Stratus’ accounting policy for and other information regarding its income taxes is further described in Notes 1 and 7 in the Stratus 2017 Form 10-K.

Stratus had deferred tax assets (net of deferred tax liabilities) totaling $12.5 million at September 30, 2018, and $11.5 million at December 31, 2017. Stratus’ income tax benefit for the first nine months of 2018 includes a deferred tax benefit of $1.1 million, partly offset by income tax expense of $0.1 million. Stratus’ future results of operations may be negatively impacted by an inability to realize a tax benefit for future tax losses or for items that will generate additional deferred tax assets.

The difference between Stratus' consolidated effective income tax rate for the first nine months of 2018 and the first nine months of 2017, and the U.S. Federal statutory income tax rate of 21 percent for 2018 and 35 percent for 2017, was primarily attributable to the Texas state margin tax.

9.
BUSINESS SEGMENTS
Stratus currently has four operating segments: Real Estate Operations, Leasing Operations, Hotel and Entertainment.

The Real Estate Operations segment is comprised of Stratus’ real estate assets (developed, under development and available for development), which consists of its properties in Austin, Texas (the Barton Creek community, including portions of Santal Phase II; the Circle C community, including The Saint Mary; the Lantana community, including Lantana Place; and one condominium unit at the W Austin Hotel & Residences); in Lakeway, Texas located in the greater Austin area (Lakeway); in College Station, Texas (Jones Crossing); and in Magnolia, Texas (Magnolia) and Kingwood, Texas (Kingwood Place), both located in the greater Houston area.

The Leasing Operations segment includes the office and retail space at the W Austin Hotel & Residences, a retail building in Barton Creek Village, Santal Phase I, the West Killeen Market in Killeen, Texas, and portions of the Santal Phase II, Lantana Place and Jones Crossing projects.

The Hotel segment includes the W Austin Hotel located at the W Austin Hotel & Residences in downtown Austin, Texas.

12



The Entertainment segment includes ACL Live, a live music and entertainment venue and production studio, and 3TEN ACL Live, both at the W Austin Hotel & Residences. In addition to hosting concerts and private events, ACL Live is the home of Austin City Limits, a television program showcasing popular music legends. The Entertainment segment also includes revenues and costs associated with events hosted at other venues.

Stratus uses operating income or loss to measure the performance of each segment. General and administrative expenses, which primarily consist of employee salaries, wages and other costs, are managed on a consolidated basis and are not allocated to Stratus' operating segments. The following segment information reflects management determinations that may not be indicative of what the actual financial performance of each segment would be if it were an independent entity.

NEW ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
Revenue Recognition. In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a new Accounting Standards Update (ASU) related to revenue recognition. Stratus adopted this standard effective January 1, 2018, under the modified retrospective approach applied to contracts that remain in force at the adoption date. The adoption of this standard did not result in any changes to Stratus' revenue recognition policies or processes (refer to Note 1 of Stratus' 2017 Form 10-K for disclosure of Stratus' revenue recognition policy) except as follows:

Revenue or gains on sales of real estate are recognized when control of the asset has been transferred to the buyer if collection of substantially all of the consideration to which Stratus will be entitled is probable and Stratus has satisfied all other performance obligations under the contract. Consideration is allocated among multiple performance obligations or distinct nonfinancial assets to be transferred to the buyer based on relative fair value.


14


Financial Instruments. In January 2016, FASB issued an ASU that amends the guidance on the classification and measurement of financial instruments. This ASU makes limited changes to prior guidance and amends certain disclosure requirements. Stratus adopted this ASU effective January 1, 2018, and such adoption did not have a material impact on its financial statements.

Leases. In February 2016, FASB issued an ASU that will require lessees to recognize most leases on the balance sheet. This ASU allows lessees to make an accounting policy election to not recognize a lease asset and liability for leases with a term of 12 months or less and do not have a purchase option that is expected to be exercised. For public entities, this ASU is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. In July 2018, FASB issued a practical expedient allowing for entities to apply the provisions of the updated lease guidance at the January 1, 2019, effective date, without adjusting the comparative periods presented. Stratus continues to review the impact of the new guidance on its financial reporting and disclosures, including the impact of the College Station ground lease.

Statement of Cash Flows: Restricted Cash. In November 2016, FASB issued an ASU that changes the classification and presentation of restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents on the statement of cash flows. The ASU requires that a statement of cash flows include the change during the period in the total of cash, cash equivalents and amounts generally described as restricted cash or restricted cash equivalents. Therefore, amounts generally described as restricted cash and restricted cash equivalents should be included with cash and cash equivalents when reconciling the beginning-of-period and end-of-period total amounts shown on the statement of cash flows. Stratus adopted this ASU effective January 1, 2018, and adjusted its consolidated statement of cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, to include restricted cash (Stratus has no restricted cash equivalents) with cash and cash equivalents.

The impact of adopting this ASU for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, follows (in millions):

11. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
In October 2018, Stratus, in partnership with HEB, purchased a 38-acre tract of land for approximately $9.5 million in New Caney, Texas, for the future development of an HEB-anchored, mixed-use project. Stratus and HEB entered into a new partnership agreement in which each party owns a 50 percent interest in the partnership and each funded half of the land purchase. Subject to completion of development plans, Stratus currently expects the New Caney project will be anchored by an HEB grocery store, and will include approximately 145,000 square feet of retail space (inclusive of the HEB grocery store), 5 pad sites, and a 10-acre multi-family parcel. Upon completion of certain pre-development work, which is currently underway, Stratus intends to enter into a lease with HEB, at which time Stratus will acquire HEB’s interest in the partnership for the amount of HEB’s investment. Stratus is reviewing its plans for timing of commencement of construction, which Stratus currently expects to be in approximately three years.

Stratus evaluated events after September 30, 2018, and through the date the financial statements were issued, and determined any events or transactions occurring during this period that would require recognition or disclosure are appropriately addressed in these financial statements.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

OVERVIEW

In Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (MD&A), “we,” “us,” “our” and "Stratus" refer to Stratus Properties Inc. and all entities owned or controlled by Stratus Properties Inc. You should read the following discussion in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements, related MD&A and discussion of our business and properties included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (2017 Form 10-K) filed with the United States (U.S.) Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The results of operations reported and summarized below are not necessarily indicative of future operating results, and future results could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements (refer to “Cautionary Statement” for further discussion). All subsequent references to “Notes” refer to Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited) located in Part I, Item 1. “Financial Statements” of this Form 10-Q, unless otherwise stated.
We are a diversified real estate company engaged primarily in the acquisition, entitlement, development, management, operation and sale of commercial, hotel, entertainment, and multi-family and single-family residential real estate properties, primarily located in the Austin, Texas area, and also including projects in certain other select markets in Texas. We generate revenues and cash flows from the sale of developed properties, rental income from our leased properties and from our hotel and entertainment operations. See Note 9 for further discussion of our operating segments.
Developed property sales can include an individual tract of land that has been developed and permitted for residential use, a developed lot with a home already built on it or condominium units at the W Austin Residences. We may sell properties under development, undeveloped properties or leased properties, if opportunities arise that we believe will maximize overall asset values as part of our business plan. See "Business Strategy" below.
Our acreage under development and undeveloped as of September 30, 2018, is presented in the following table.

In third-quarter 2018, our revenues totaled $17.9 million and our net loss attributable to common stockholders totaled $2.4 million, compared with revenues of $17.2 million and net income attributable to common stockholders of $14.3 million for third-quarter 2017. During the first nine months of 2018, our revenues totaled $59.0 million and our net loss attributable to common stockholders totaled $5.1 million, compared with revenues of $59.3 million and net income attributable to common stockholders of $10.7 million for the first nine months of 2017.
The increase in revenues in third-quarter 2018, compared with third-quarter 2017, primarily reflects increased revenue from the Leasing Operations segment, partially offset by lower developed property sales. The decrease in revenues for the first nine months of 2018, compared with the first nine months of 2017, primarily reflects lower revenues from the Entertainment and Hotel segments, partially offset by higher revenue from the Leasing Operations segment and developed property sales.
The results for third-quarter 2017 and the first nine months of 2017 include a gain on the sale of assets totaling $24.3 million ($15.7 million to net income attributable to common stockholders) associated with recognition of a

16


portion of the deferred gain on the sale of The Oaks at Lakeway. The results for the first nine months of 2017 also include a $2.5 million charge ($1.6 million to net income attributable to common stockholders) for profit participation costs and a $0.5 million loss ($0.3 million to net income attributable to common stockholders) on early extinguishment of debt, both related to our sale of The Oaks at Lakeway, partly offset by a $1.1 million gain ($0.7 million to net income attributable to common stockholders) on the sale of a bank building and an adjacent undeveloped 4.1 acre tract of land at Barton Creek.
At September 30, 2018, we had total debt of $293.7 million and total cash and cash equivalents of $21.2 million, compared with total debt of $221.5 million and cash and cash equivalents of $14.6 million at December 31, 2017. We have significant recurring costs, including property taxes, maintenance and marketing, and we believe we will have sufficient sources of debt financing and cash from operations to meet our cash requirements. See “Capital Resources and Liquidity below and “Risk Factors” included in Part 1, Item 1A. of our 2017 Form 10-K for further discussion.
BUSINESS STRATEGY

Our overall strategy has been to manage our diverse asset base of residential, commercial, hotel and entertainment real estate located in the premier Austin, Texas market and in other select, fast-growing Texas markets. We enhance the value of our residential and commercial properties by securing and maintaining development entitlements and developing and building real estate projects on these properties for sale or investment. Our hotel and entertainment venues, including ACL Live, are located in downtown Austin and are central to the city's world renowned, vibrant music scene.
We are continuing our successful program of actively developing our properties and refinancing or marketing and selling developed assets at appropriate times to maximize stockholder value. Our active development plan includes completion of both residential and commercial projects. Our portfolio consists of approximately 1,800 acres of commercial, multi-family and single-family projects under development or undeveloped and held for future use. We believe that our portfolio, along with management’s extensive experience in Austin-area real estate development, support our ability to obtain project financing and/or seek joint venture partners including for the development projects described in “Development Activities - Residential” and “Development Activities - Commercial”.
