NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2022 (UNAUDITED)

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

UMH Properties, Inc., a Maryland corporation, and its subsidiaries (“we”, “our”, “us” or “the Company”) operates as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) deriving its income primarily from real estate rental operations. The Company owns and operates 128 manufactured home communities containing approximately 24,100 developed homesites as of March 31, 2022. These communities are located in New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan, Maryland, Alabama and South Carolina. The Company also has an ownership interest in and operates one community in Florida through its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate. The Company, through its wholly-owned taxable subsidiary, UMH Sales and Finance, Inc. (“S&F”), sells manufactured homes to residents and prospective residents in our communities. Inherent in the operations of manufactured home communities are site vacancies. S&F was established to fill these vacancies and enhance the value of the communities. The Company also owns a portfolio of REIT securities which the Company generally limits to no more than approximately 15% of its undepreciated assets. The consolidated financial statements of the Company include S&F and all of its other wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856-860 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”) and intends to maintain its qualification as a REIT in the future. As a qualified REIT, with limited exceptions, the Company will not be taxed under federal and certain state income tax laws at the corporate level on taxable income that it distributes to its shareholders. For special tax provisions applicable to REITs, refer to Sections 856-860 of the Code. The Company is subject to franchise taxes in some of the states in which the Company owns property.

 

The interim consolidated financial statements furnished herein have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) applicable to interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q, and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2022. For further information, refer to the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Use of Estimates

 

In preparing the consolidated financial statements in accordance with GAAP, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, as well as contingent assets and liabilities as of the dates of the consolidated balance sheets and revenue and expenses for the years then ended. These estimates and assumptions include the allowance for doubtful accounts, valuation of inventory, depreciation, valuation of securities, accounting for land development, reserves and accruals, and stock compensation expense. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts in the financial statements for the prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the statement presentation for the current periods.

 

Investment in Joint Venture

 

The Company accounts for its investment in its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate under the equity method of accounting in accordance with ASC 323, Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures. The Company has the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control, over the operating and financial decisions of the joint venture. Under the equity method of accounting, the cost of an investment is adjusted for the Company’s share of the equity in net income or loss from the date of acquisition, reduced by distributions received and increased by contributions made. The income or loss is allocated in accordance with the provisions of the operating agreement. The carrying value of the investment in the joint venture is reviewed for other than temporary impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate a possible impairment. Financial condition, operational performance, and other economic trends are among the factors that are considered in evaluation of the existence of impairment indicators (See Note 5).

 

Leases

 

We account for our leases under ASC 842, “Leases.” Our primary source of revenue is generated from lease agreements for our sites and homes, where we are the lessor. These leases are generally for one-year or month-to-month terms and renewable by mutual agreement from us and the resident, or in some cases, as provided by jurisdictional statute.

 

We are the lessee in other arrangements, primarily for our corporate office and a ground lease at one community. As of March 31, 2022, the right-of-use assets and corresponding lease liabilities of $3.5 million are included in prepaid expenses and other assets and accrued liabilities and deposits on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

10

 

 

Future minimum lease payments under these leases over the remaining lease terms are as follows (in thousands):

 

      
2022  $315 
2023   391 
2024   391 
2025   391 
2026   391 
Thereafter   19,123 
      
Total Lease Payments  $21,002 

 

The weighted average remaining lease term for these leases is 164.5 years. The right of use assets and lease liabilities was calculated using an interest rate of 5%.

 

Restricted Cash

 

The Company’s restricted cash consists of amounts primarily held in deposit for tax, insurance and repair escrows held by lenders in accordance with certain debt agreements. Restricted cash is included in prepaid expenses and other assets on the consolidated balance sheets.

 

The following table reconciles beginning of period and end of period balances of cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash for the periods shown (in thousands):

 

   3/31/22   12/31/21   3/31/21   12/31/20 
                 
Cash and Cash Equivalents  $292,465   $116,175   $24,784   $15,336 
Restricted Cash   11,247    8,851    15,269    13,257 
Cash, Cash Equivalents                    
And Restricted Cash  $303,712   $125,026   $40,053   $28,593 

 

Revenue

 

On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” (ASC 606). For transactions in the scope of ASC 606, we recognize revenue when control of goods or services transfers to the customer, in the amount that we expect to receive for the transfer of goods or provision of services.

 

Rental and related income is generated from lease agreements for our sites and homes. The lease component of these agreements is accounted for under ASC 842 “Leases.” The non-lease components of our lease agreements consist primarily of utility reimbursements, which are accounted for with the site lease as a single lease under ASC 842.

 

11

 

 

Revenue from sales of manufactured homes is recognized in accordance with the core principle of ASC 606, at the time of closing when control of the home transfers to the customer. After closing of the sale transaction, we generally have no remaining performance obligation.

 

Interest income is primarily from notes receivables for the previous sales of manufactured homes. Interest income on these receivables is accrued based on the unpaid principal balances of the underlying loans on a level yield basis over the life of the loans.

 

Dividend income and gain (loss) on sales of marketable securities are from our investments in marketable securities and are presented separately but are not in the scope of ASC 606.

 

Other income primarily consists of brokerage commissions for arranging for the sale of a home by a third party and other miscellaneous income. This income is recognized when the transactions are completed and our performance obligations have been fulfilled.

 

Notes Receivables

 

On January 1, 2020, the Company adopted ASU No. 2016-13, “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments.” ASU 2016-13 requires that entities use a new forward looking “expected loss” model that generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowance for credit losses. The measurement of expected credit losses is based upon historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the reported amount. As of March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company had notes receivable of $53.5 million and $45.2 million, net the fair value adjustment of $1.1 million and $0.9 million, respectively. Notes receivable are presented as a component of notes and other receivables, net on our consolidated balance sheets. These receivables represent balances owed to us for previously completed performance obligations for sales of manufactured homes.

 

Other Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

 

NOTE 2 – NET INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE

 

Basic Net Income (Loss) per Share is calculated by dividing Net Income (Loss) by the weighted average shares outstanding for the period. Diluted Net Income per Share is calculated by dividing Net Income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding, and when dilutive, the potential net shares that would be issued upon exercise of stock options pursuant to the treasury stock method. In periods with a net loss, the diluted loss per share equals the basic loss per share as all common stock equivalents are excluded from the per share calculation because they are anti-dilutive.

 

12

 

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022, common stock equivalents of 1.4 million shares were excluded from the computation of Diluted Net Loss per Share as their effect would be anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, common stock equivalents resulting from employee stock options to purchase 3.2 million shares of common stock amounted to 898,000 shares, which were included in the computation of Diluted Net Income per Share.

 

NOTE 3 – INVESTMENT PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Acquisitions

 

On March 31, 2022, the Company acquired Center Manor, located in Monaca, Pennsylvania, for approximately $5.8 million. This community contains a total of 96 developed homesites that are situated on approximately 18 total acres. At the date of acquisition, the average occupancy for this community was approximately 83%.

 

The Company has evaluated this acquisition and has determined that it should be accounted for as acquisition of assets. As such, we have allocated the total cash consideration, including transaction costs of approximately $189,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022, to the individual assets acquired on a relative fair value basis. The following table summarizes our purchase price allocation for the assets acquired for the three months ended March 31, 2022 (in thousands):

 

   At Acquisition Date 
Assets Acquired:     
Land  $204 
Depreciable Property   5,785 
Total Assets Acquired  $5,989 

 

See Note 13 for the Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information relating to this acquisition.

 

NOTE 4 – MARKETABLE SECURITIES

 

The Company’s marketable securities consist primarily of marketable common and preferred stock of other REITs with a fair value of $57.0 million as of March 31, 2022, which represents 3.3% of undepreciated assets. The Company generally limits its investment in marketable securities to no more than approximately 15% of its undepreciated assets. The REIT securities portfolio provides the Company with additional liquidity and additional income and serves as a proxy for real estate when more favorable risk adjusted returns are not available.

 

13

 

 

As of December 31, 2021, the Company’s securities portfolio included 2.7 million shares of common stock of Monmouth Real Estate Investment Corporation (“MREIC”), representing 2.7% of the total MREIC shares outstanding. The Company’s Chairman of the Board was also the Chairman of MREIC and there were three other Company Directors who were also directors and shareholders of MREIC . In February 2022, MREIC was acquired by a third party pursuant to an all-cash merger approved by the shareholders of MREIC, which resulted in the Company and MREIC’s other shareholders receiving a cash payment of $21.00 per share in cancellation of their MREIC common shares. The merger consideration received by the Company on February 28, 2022 for its 2.7 million shares of MREIC common stock totaled approximately $55.7 million. These shares had been acquired by the Company at a cost of approximately $25 million, which resulted in a gain of approximately $30.7 million.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had total net unrealized losses of $46.1 million in its REIT securities portfolio. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recorded a $31.7 million decrease in the fair value of these marketable securities, as the gain on the MREIC common stock became realized as a result of the MREIC merger. The Company held thirteen securities that had unrealized losses as of March 31, 2022. The Company normally holds REIT securities long-term and has the ability and intent to hold these securities to recovery.

 

NOTE 5- INVESTMENT IN JOINT VENTURE

 

On December 8, 2021, the Company and Nuveen Real Estate, a part of Nuveen Global Investments LLC (“Nuveen”), established a joint venture for the purpose of acquiring manufactured housing and/or recreational vehicle communities that are under development and/or newly developed and meet certain other investment guidelines. The terms of the joint venture are set forth in a Limited Liability Company Agreement dated as of December 8, 2021 (the “LLC Agreement”) entered into between a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and an affiliate of Nuveen. The LLC Agreement provides for the parties to initially fund up to $70 million of equity capital for acquisitions during a 24-month commitment period, with Nuveen having the option, subject to certain conditions, to elect to increase the parties’ total commitments by up to an additional $100 million and to extend the commitment period for up to an additional four years. Committed capital will be funded 60% by Nuveen and 40% by the Company on a parity basis.

 

On December 22, 2021, the Company, through its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate, closed on the acquisition of a newly developed all-age, manufactured home community located in Sebring, Florida for a total purchase price of $22.2 million. This community contains 219 developed homesites. It is situated on approximately 39 acres. The Company manages this community on behalf of the joint venture.

 

The Company accounts for this joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate under the equity method of accounting in accordance with ASC 323, “Investments – Equity Method and Joint Ventures”.

On November 29, 2018, the Company entered into a First Amendment to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement (the “Amendment”) to expand and extend its existing unsecured revolving credit facility (the “Facility”). The Facility is syndicated with two banks led by BMO Capital Markets Corp. (“BMO”), as sole lead arranger and sole book runner, with Bank of Montreal as administrative agent, and includes JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (“J.P. Morgan”) as the sole syndication agent. The Amendment provided for an increase from $50 million in available borrowings to $75 million in available borrowings with a $50 million accordion feature, bringing the total potential availability up to $125 million, subject to certain conditions including obtaining commitments from additional lenders. The Amendment also extended the maturity date of the Facility from March 27, 2020 to November 29, 2022, with a one-year extension available at the Company’s option, subject to certain conditions including payment of an extension fee. Availability under the Facility is limited to 60% of the value of the unencumbered communities which the Company has placed in the Facility’s unencumbered asset pool (“Borrowing Base”). The Amendment increased the value of the Borrowing Base communities by reducing the capitalization rate applied to the Net Operating Income (“NOI”) generated by the communities in the Borrowing Base from 7.5% to 7.0%. On February 5, 2021, the Company entered into a Second Amendment to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with BMO to further reduce the capitalization rate from 7.0% to 6.5%. As of March 31, 2022, the amount outstanding under the Facility was $25 million and the interest rate was 1.66%.

Series A Bonds

 

On February 6, 2022, the Company issued $102.7 million of its new 4.72% Series A Bonds due 2027, or the 2027 Bonds, in an offering to investors in Israel. The Company received $98.7 million, net of offering expenses. The 2027 Bonds are unsecured obligations of the Company denominated in Israeli shekels (NIS) and were issued pursuant to a Deed of Trust dated January 31, 2022 between the Company and Reznik Paz Nevo Trusts Ltd., an Israeli trust company, as trustee. The 2027 Bonds pay interest at a rate of 4.72% per year. Interest on the 2027 Bonds is payable semi-annually on August 31, 2022, and on February 28 and August 31 of the years 2023-2026 (inclusive) and on the final maturity date of February 28, 2027. The principal and interest will be linked to the U.S. Dollar. In the event of a future downgrade by two or more notches in the rating of the 2027 Bonds or a failure by the Company to comply with certain covenants in the Deed of Trust, the interest rate on the 2027 Bonds will be subject to increase. However, any such increases, in the aggregate, would not exceed 1.25% per annum. As of March 31, 2022, the Company is in compliance with these covenants.

Under the Deed of Trust, the Company has the right to redeem the 2027 Bonds, in whole or in part, at any time on or after 60 days from February 9, 2022, the date on which the 2027 Bonds were listed for trading on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (the “TASE”). Any such voluntary early redemption by the Company will require payment of the applicable early redemption amount calculated in accordance with the Deed of Trust. Upon the occurrence of an event of default or certain other events, including a delisting of the 2027 Bonds by the TASE, the Company may be required to effect an early repayment or redemption of all or a portion of the 2027 Bonds at their par value plus accrued and unpaid interest. The Deed of Trust permits the Company, subject to certain conditions, to issue additional 2027 Bonds without obtaining approval of the holders of the 2027 Bonds.

 

The 2027 Bonds are general unsecured obligations of the Company and rank equal in right of payment with all of the Company’s existing and future unsecured indebtedness. The Deed of Trust includes certain customary covenants, including financial covenants requiring the Company to maintain certain ratios of debt to net operating income, to shareholders equity and to earnings, and customary events of default. The 2027 Bonds were offered solely to investors outside the United States and were not offered to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons (as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act of 1933).

NOTE 8 – STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company accounts for awards of stock options and restricted stock in accordance with ASC 718-10, “Compensation-Stock Compensation.” ASC 718-10 requires that compensation cost for all stock awards be calculated and amortized over the service period (generally equal to the vesting period). The compensation cost for stock option grants is determined using option pricing models, intended to estimate the fair value of the awards at the grant date less estimated forfeitures. The compensation expense for restricted stock is recognized based on the fair value of the restricted stock awards less estimated forfeitures. The fair value of restricted stock awards is equal to the fair value of the Company’s stock on the grant date. Compensation costs of $1.2 million and $750,000 have been recognized for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

On March 25, 2022, the Company awarded a total of 78,000 shares of restricted stock to two employees. The grant date fair value of these restricted stock grants was $1.9 million. These grants vest ratably over 5 years.

 

On March 25, 2022, the Company granted options to purchase 470,800 shares of common stock to forty-five participants in the Company’s Amended and Restated 2013 Incentive Award Plan. The grant date fair value of these options amounted to $2.1 million. These grants vest ratably over five years.

 

The fair value of each option grant is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following weighted-average assumptions used for grants during the three months ended March 31, 2022:

 

   2022 
     
Dividend yield   3.51%
Expected volatility   24.79%
Risk-free interest rate   2.48%
Expected lives   10 
Estimated forfeitures   0 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, eight participants exercised options to purchase a total of 78,160 shares of common stock at a weighted-average exercise price of $12.70 per share for total proceeds of $993,000. The aggregate intrinsic value of options exercised was $955,000.

 

As of March 31, 2022, there were options outstanding to purchase 3.7 million shares, with an aggregate intrinsic value of $32.1 million. There were 2.3 million shares available for grant under the Amended and Restated 2013 Incentive Award Plan.

NOTE 9 - FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

In accordance with ASC 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” the Company measures certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value on a recurring basis, including marketable securities. The fair value of these financial assets and liabilities was determined using the following inputs at March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021 (in thousands):

 

   Fair Value Measurements at Reporting Date Using 
       Quoted Prices In Active   Significant     
       Markets for   Other   Significant 
       Identical   Observable   Unobservable 
       Assets   Inputs   Inputs 
   Total   (Level 1)   (Level 2)   (Level 3) 
As of March 31, 2022:                    
Marketable Securities - Preferred stock  $1,232   $1,232   $0   $0 
Marketable Securities - Common stock   55,739    55,739    0    0 
Total  $56,971   $56,971   $0   $0 
                     
As of December 31, 2021:                    
Marketable Securities - Preferred stock  $1,740   $1,740   $0   $0 
Marketable Securities - Common stock   112,008    112,008    0    0 
Total  $113,748   $113,748   $0   $0 

 

In addition to the Company’s investment in marketable securities at fair value, the Company is required to disclose certain information about fair values of its other financial instruments, as defined in ASC 825-10, Financial Instruments. Estimates of fair value are made at a specific point in time, based upon, where available, relevant market prices and information about the financial instrument. Such estimates do not include any premium or discount that could result from offering for sale at one time the Company’s entire holdings of a particular financial instrument. All of the Company’s marketable securities have quoted market prices. However, for a portion of the Company’s other financial instruments, no quoted market value exists. Therefore, estimates of fair value are necessarily based on a number of significant assumptions (many of which involve events outside the control of management). Such assumptions include assessments of current economic conditions, perceived risks associated with these financial instruments and their counterparties, future expected loss experience and other factors. Given the uncertainties surrounding these assumptions, the reported fair values represent estimates only and, therefore, cannot be compared to the historical accounting model. Use of different assumptions or methodologies is likely to result in significantly different fair value estimates.

 

The fair value of cash and cash equivalents and notes receivable approximates their current carrying amounts since all such items are short-term in nature. The fair value of variable rate loans payable approximate their current carrying amounts since such amounts payable are at approximately a weighted-average current market rate of interest. As of March 31, 2022, the estimated fair value of fixed rate mortgages payable amounted to $473.3 million and the carrying value of fixed rate mortgages payable amounted to $479.5 million.

NOTE 10 – CONTINGENCIES, COMMITMENTS AND OTHER MATTERS

 

From time to time, the Company may be subject to claims and litigation in the ordinary course of business. Management does not believe that any such claims or litigation will have a material adverse effect on the financial position or results of operations.

 

The Company has an agreement with 21st Mortgage Corporation (“21st Mortgage”) under which 21st Mortgage can provide financing for home purchasers in the Company’s communities. The Company does not receive referral fees or other cash compensation under the agreement. If 21st Mortgage makes loans to purchasers and those purchasers default on their loans and 21st Mortgage repossesses the homes securing such loans, the Company has agreed to purchase from 21st Mortgage each such repossessed home for a price equal to 80% to 95% of the amount under each such loan, subject to certain adjustments. This agreement may be terminated by either party with 30 days written notice. As of March 31, 2022, the total loan balance under this agreement was approximately $1.2 million. Additionally, 21st Mortgage previously made loans to purchasers in certain communities we acquired. In conjunction with these acquisitions, the Company has agreed to purchase from 21st Mortgage each repossessed home, if those purchasers default on their loans. The purchase price ranges from 55% to 100% of the amount under each such loan, subject to certain adjustments. As of March 31, 2022, the total loan balance owed to 21st Mortgage with respect to homes in these acquired communities was approximately $1.3 million. Although this agreement is still active, this program is not being utilized by the Company’s new customers as a source of financing.

 

S&F entered into a Chattel Loan Origination, Sale and Servicing Agreement (“COP Program”) with Triad Financial Services, effective January 1, 2016. Neither the Company, nor S&F, receive referral fees or other cash compensation under the agreement. Customer loan applications are initially submitted to Triad for consideration by Triad’s portfolio of outside lenders. If a loan application does not meet the criteria for outside financing, the application is then considered for financing under the COP Program. If the loan is approved under the COP Program, then it is originated by Triad, assigned to S&F and then assigned by S&F to the Company. Included in notes and other receivables is approximately $47.9 million of loans that the Company acquired under the COP Program as of March 31, 2022.

 

The Company and one of its subsidiaries are parties to a Limited Liability Company Agreement dated as of December 8, 2021 with an affiliate of Nuveen Real Estate, which governs the joint venture formed between the Company and Nuveen Real Estate. The LLC Agreement provides for the parties to initially fund up to $70 million of equity capital for acquisitions during a 24-month commitment period, with Nuveen having the option, subject to certain conditions, to elect to increase the parties’ total commitments by up to an additional $100 million and to extend the commitment period for up to an additional four years. The Company is required to fund 40% of the committed capital and Nuveen is required to fund 60%. All such funding will be on a parity basis. (See Note 5).

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

 

Overview

 

The following discussion and analysis of the consolidated financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto included elsewhere herein and in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

The Company is a Maryland corporation that operates as a self-administered, self-managed Real Estate Investment Trust (“REIT”) with headquarters in Freehold, New Jersey. The Company’s primary business is the ownership and operation of manufactured home communities, which includes leasing manufactured home spaces on an annual or month-to-month basis to residents. The Company also leases manufactured homes to residents and, through its wholly-owned taxable REIT subsidiary, UMH Sales and Finance, Inc. (“S&F”), sells and finances the sale of manufactured homes to residents and prospective residents of our communities and for placement on customers’ privately-owned land.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company owned and operated 128 manufactured home communities containing approximately 24,100 developed homesites. These communities are located in New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Indiana, Michigan, Maryland, Alabama and South Carolina. The Company also has an ownership interest in and operates one community in Florida through its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate.

 

The Company earns income from the operation of its manufactured home communities, leasing of manufactured homesites, the rental of manufactured homes, the sale and finance of manufactured homes and the brokering of home sales and revenue under cable service agreements as well as from appreciation in the values of the manufactured home communities and vacant land owned by the Company. In addition, the Company receives property management and other fees from its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate. Management views the Company as a single segment based on its method of internal reporting in addition to its allocation of capital and resources The Company also invests in equity securities of other REITs which the Company generally limits to no more than approximately 15% of its undepreciated assets. As of March 31, 2022, the securities portfolio represented 3.3% of undepreciated assets.

 

The Company believes that its capital structure, which allows for the ownership of assets using a balanced combination of equity obtained through the issuance of common stock, preferred stock and debt, will enhance shareholder returns as the properties appreciate over time.

 

The Company intends to continue to increase its real estate investments. Our business plan includes acquiring communities that over time are expected to yield in excess of our cost of funds and then investing in physical improvements, including adding rental homes onto otherwise vacant sites. This has resulted in increased occupancy rates and improved operating results. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, rental and related income increased 7% from the prior year period and Community Net Operating Income (“NOI”), as defined below, increased 8%. Same property NOI, which includes communities owned and operated as of January 1, 2021, increased 5% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 over the prior year period driven by a 70 basis point increase in occupancy, to 86.7%, and rental rate increase of 4.9%. We have been positioning ourselves for future growth and will continue to seek opportunistic investments. In addition, on behalf of our recently-formed joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate, we will seek opportunities to acquire manufactured home communities that are under development and/or newly developed and meet certain other investment guidelines.

 

Sales of manufactured homes decreased 3% during the three months ended March 31, 2022 from the prior year. Demand for quality affordable housing remains healthy while inventory is scarce. Our property type offers substantial comparative value that should result in increased demand.

 

23

 

 

The macro-economic environment and current housing fundamentals continue to favor home rentals. Rental homes in a manufactured home community allow the resident to obtain the efficiencies of factory-built housing and the amenities of community living for less than the cost of other forms of affordable housing. We continue to see strong demand for rental homes. We have added an additional 52 rental homes during the first three months of 2022. This brought the total number of rental homes to approximately 8,800 rental homes, or 36.3% of total sites. Occupied rental homes represented approximately 40.2% of total occupied sites at quarter end. Occupancy in rental homes continues to be strong and was at 95.3% as of March 31, 2022. We compare favorably with other types of rental housing, including apartments, and we will continue to allocate capital to rental home purchases, as demand dictates. We anticipate adding approximately 700 - 800 rental homes in 2022.

 

The following is a summary of the community acquired during the three months ended March 31, 2022 (in thousands):

See PART I, Item 1 – Business in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 for a more complete discussion of the economic and industry-wide factors relevant to the Company and the opportunities and challenges, and risks on which the Company is focused.

 

Significant Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations are based upon the Company’s consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

On a regular basis, management evaluates our assumptions, judgments and estimates. Management believes there have been no material changes to the items that we disclosed as our significant accounting policies and estimates under Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Supplemental Measures

 

In addition to the results reported in accordance with GAAP, management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations include certain non-GAAP financial measures that in management’s view of the business we believe are meaningful as they allow the investor the ability to understand key operating details of our business both with and without regard to certain accounting conventions or items that may not always be indicative of recurring annual cash flow of the portfolio. These non-GAAP financial measures as determined and presented by us may not be comparable to related or similarly titled measures reported by other companies and include Community Net Operating Income (“Community NOI”), Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (“FFO”) and Normalized Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (“Normalized FFO”).

 

We define Community NOI as rental and related income less community operating expenses such as real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance, community salaries, utilities, insurance and other expenses. We believe that Community NOI is helpful to investors and analysts as a direct measure of the actual operating results of our manufactured home communities, rather than our Company overall. Community NOI should not be considered a substitute for the reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. Community NOI should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) as an indicator of our financial performance, or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity; nor is it indicative of funds available for our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions.

 

The Company’s Community NOI for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 is calculated as follows (in thousands):

 

   Three Months Ended 
   3/31/22   3/31/21 
           
Rental and Related Income  $41,577   $38,713 
Less: Community Operating Expenses   (18,071)   (17,137)
Community NOI  $23,506   $21,576

We assess and measure our overall operating results based upon an industry performance measure referred to as Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (“FFO”), which management believes is a useful indicator of our operating performance. FFO is used by industry analysts and investors as a supplemental operating performance measure of a REIT. FFO, as defined by The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), represents net income (loss) attributable to common shareholders, as defined by accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. of America (“U.S. GAAP”), excluding extraordinary items, as defined under U.S. GAAP, gains or losses from sales of previously depreciated real estate assets, impairment charges related to depreciable real estate assets, the change in the fair value of marketable securities, and the gain or loss on the sale of marketable securities plus certain non-cash items such as real estate asset depreciation and amortization. Included in the NAREIT FFO White Paper - 2018 Restatement, is an option pertaining to assets incidental to our main business in the calculation of NAREIT FFO to make an election to include or exclude gains and losses on the sale of these assets, such as marketable equity securities and include or exclude mark-to-market changes in the value recognized on these marketable equity securities. In conjunction with the adoption of the FFO White Paper - 2018 Restatement, for all periods presented, we have elected to exclude the gains and losses realized on marketable securities investments and the change in the fair value of marketable securities from our FFO calculation. NAREIT created FFO as a non-U.S. GAAP supplemental measure of REIT operating performance. We define Normalized Funds from Operations Attributable to Common Shareholders (“Normalized FFO”), as FFO excluding certain one-time charges. FFO and Normalized FFO should be considered as supplemental measures of operating performance used by REITs. FFO and Normalized FFO exclude historical cost depreciation as an expense and may facilitate the comparison of REITs which have a different cost basis. However, other REITs may use different methodologies to calculate FFO and Normalized FFO and, accordingly, our FFO and Normalized FFO may not be comparable to all other REITs. The items excluded from FFO and Normalized FFO are significant components in understanding the Company’s financial performance.

 

FFO and Normalized FFO (i) do not represent cash flow from operations as defined by U.S. GAAP; (ii) should not be considered as alternatives to net income (loss) as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities; and (iii) are not alternatives to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.

 

The Company’s FFO and Normalized FFO attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021 are calculated as follows (in thousands):

 

   Three Months Ended 
   3/31/22   3/31/21

Changes In Results Of Operations

 

Rental and related income increased 7% from $38.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $41.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This increase was primarily due to the acquisitions made during 2021 and 2022, as well as increases in rental rates and same property occupancy and additional rental homes. The Company has been raising rental rates by approximately 3% to 4% annually at most communities. Same property occupancy has increased 70 basis points from 86.0% as of March 31, 2021 to 86.7% at March 31, 2022. Occupied rental homes increased 3% from approximately 8,100 homes at March 31, 2021 to 8,300 homes at March 31, 2022.

 

Community operating expenses increased 5% from $17.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $18.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. These increases were primarily due to an increase in real estate taxes, insurance and water and sewer expenses.

 

Community NOI increased 9% from $21.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $23.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. These increases were primarily due to the acquisitions during 2021 and 2022 and increases in rental rates, occupancy and rental homes. The Company’s operating expense ratio (defined as community operating expenses divided by rental and related income) was 44.3% and 43.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2022, respectively. Many recently acquired communities have deferred maintenance requiring higher than normal expenditures in the first few years of ownership. Because most of the community expenses consist of fixed costs, as occupancy rates increase, these expense ratios are expected to continue to improve. Since the Company has the ability to increase its rental rates annually, increasing costs due to inflation and changing prices have generally not had a material effect on revenues and income from continuing operations.

 

Sales of manufactured homes decreased 3% from $4.4 million, or 73 homes, for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $4.3 million, or 61 homes, for the three months ended March 31, 2022. Cost of sales of manufactured homes amounted to $3.0 million and $3.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The gross profit percentage was 30% and 21% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Selling expenses, which includes salaries, commissions, advertising and other miscellaneous expenses, amounted to $1.2 million and $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Gain (loss) from the sales operations (defined as sales of manufactured homes less cost of sales of manufactured homes less selling expenses less interest on the financing of inventory) amounted to a gain of $103,000 or 2% of total sales and a loss of $237,000 or 5% of total sales for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Many of the costs associated with sales, such as salaries, and to an extent, advertising and promotion, are fixed.

 

Home prices have continued their rise as fewer sellers are listing homes and inventories decline. With the passage of time, the inherent relative affordability of our property type becomes more and more apparent, which should result in increased demand. The Company continues to be optimistic about future sales and rental prospects given the fundamental need for affordable housing. The Company believes that sales of new homes produce new rental revenue and represent an investment in the upgrading of our communities.

General and administrative expenses increased 13% from $3.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $3.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. These increases were mainly due to an increase in personnel costs, including an increase in stock-based compensation, including the cost of previously issued special restricted stock grants for the groundbreaking Fannie Mae financing completed in 2020. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of gross revenue (total income plus interest, dividends and other income) was 8.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to 7.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Without the special bonus and restricted stock grants, this percentage was 7.3% for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as compared to 6.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Depreciation expense increased 6% from $11.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $11.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This increase was primarily due to the acquisitions in 2021 and 2022 and the increase in rental homes during 2021 and 2022.

 

Interest income increased 11% from $817,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $910,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This increase was primarily due to an increase in the average balance of notes receivable from $40.8 million at March 31, 2021 to $53.8 million at March 31, 2022.

 

Dividend income decreased 40% from $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $780,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This decrease was due to reduced dividends from our securities holdings. Dividends received from our marketable securities investments were at a weighted average yield of approximately 5.5% and 4.8% at March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

 

The Company recognized a gain on sales of marketable securities of $30.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 as a result of the cash consideration received in the MREIC merger and a loss on sales of marketable securities of $730,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021. Increase (decrease) in fair value of marketable securities decreased from a gain of $10.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to a loss of $31.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had total net unrealized losses of $46.1 million in its REIT securities portfolio. It is the Company’s intent to hold these marketable securities long-term.

 

Interest expense, including amortization of financing costs, increased 14% from $4.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to $5.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. This increase is mainly due to interest on the Series A Bonds.

Changes in Financial Condition

 

Total investment property and equipment increased 1% or $16.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. The Company acquired one community with 96 developed homesites for approximately $5.8 million. The Company also added 52 rental homes to its communities during the most recent quarter. The Company’s occupancy rate on its rental homes portfolio was 95.3% at March 31, 2022 as compared to 95.5% at December 31, 2021.

 

Marketable securities decreased 50% or $56.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. This decrease was due to a net decrease in the fair value of $31.8 million, primarily as a result of the MREIC merger, offset by sales with a cost basis of $25.0 million.

 

Mortgages payable, net of unamortized debt issuance costs, increased 5% or 21.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. This increase was due to a new mortgage of $25.6 million offset by principal payments of $2.9 million.

 

Loans payable, net of unamortized debt issuance costs, decreased 10% or $4.9 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022. This decrease was due to a decrease of $5.0 million on our revolving lines of credit for the financing of home sales and the purchase of inventory.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company also issued $102.7 million of its new 4.72% Series A Bonds due 2027.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s focus is on real estate investments, including investment in rental homes. Additionally, the Company invests in marketable debt and equity securities of other REITs. The REIT securities portfolio provides the Company with liquidity and additional income and serves as a proxy for real estate when more favorable risk adjusted returns are not available. The Company generally limits its marketable securities investments to no more than approximately 15% of its undepreciated assets.

 

The Company’s principal liquidity demands have historically been, and are expected to continue to be, distributions to the Company’s shareholders, acquisitions, capital improvements, development and expansions of properties, debt service, purchases of manufactured home inventory and rental homes, financing of manufactured home sales and payments of expenses relating to real estate operations. We anticipate that the liquidity demands of the recent properties acquired will be met by the operations of these acquisitions. The Company’s ability to generate cash adequate to meet these demands is dependent primarily on income from its real estate investments and marketable securities portfolio, the sale of real estate investments and marketable securities, refinancing of mortgage debt, leveraging of real estate investments, availability of bank borrowings, lines of credit, and other incurrence of indebtedness, proceeds from the DRIP, and access to the capital markets, including through its 2022 Common ATM Program.

 

In addition to cash generated through operations, the Company uses a variety of sources to fund its cash needs, including acquisitions. The Company may sell marketable securities from its investment portfolio, borrow on its unsecured credit facility or lines of credit, incur other indebtedness, finance and refinance its properties, and/or raise capital through the DRIP and capital markets, including through the Company’s ATM Programs. In order to provide financial flexibility to opportunistically access the capital markets, the Company has implemented a 2022 Common ATM Program. The 2022 Common ATM Program allows the Company to offer and sell shares of the Company’s Common Stock, having an aggregate sales price of up to $150 million from time to time through the Distribution Agents.

 

29

 

 

The Company intends to continue to increase its real estate investments. Our business plan includes acquiring communities that over time are expected to yield in excess of our cost of funds and then investing in physical improvements, including adding rental homes onto otherwise vacant sites. In addition, on behalf of our recently-formed joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate, we will seek opportunities to acquire manufactured home communities that are under development and/or newly developed and meet certain other investment guidelines. There is no guarantee that any of these additional opportunities will materialize or that the Company will be able to take advantage of such opportunities. The growth of our real estate portfolio and success of our joint venture depends on the availability of suitable properties which meet the Company’s investment criteria and appropriate financing. Competition in the market areas in which the Company operates is significant. To the extent that funds or appropriate communities are not available, fewer acquisitions will be made.

 

The Company continues to strengthen its capital and liquidity positions. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company issued and sold 1.6 million shares of Common Stock through our Common ATM Programs, at a weighted average price of $24.59 per share, generating gross proceeds of $38.9 million and net proceeds of $38.4 million, after offering expenses. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company issued and sold an additional 739,000 shares of its Common Stock under the 2022 Common ATM Program at a weighted average price of $24.32 per share, generating gross proceeds of $18.0 million and net proceeds of $17.7 million, after offering expenses.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company also issued $102.7 million of its new 4.72% Series A Bonds due 2027 in an offering to investors in Israel and received $98.7 million in net proceeds, after offering expenses.

 

In addition, the Company raised $1.7 million from the issuance of common stock in the DRIP during the three months ended March 31, 2022, which included Dividend Reinvestments of $911,000. Dividends paid on the common stock for the three months ended March 31, 2022 were $10.4 million, of which $911,000 were reinvested. Dividends paid on the Series C Preferred Stock and the Series D Preferred Stock for the three months ended March 31, 2022 totaled $7.6 million.

 

Net cash provided by operating activities amounted to $5.6 million and $13.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $292.5 million, marketable securities of $57.0 million, approximately $46.5 million available on our revolving lines of credit for the financing of home sales and purchases of inventory, $15 million available on our line of credit secured by rental homes and rental homes leases and $50 million available on our unsecured credit facility, with an additional $50 million potentially available pursuant to an accordion feature.

 

The Company owns 128 communities, of which 29 are unencumbered. Except for 13 communities in the borrowing base for our unsecured credit facility, these unencumbered communities can be used to raise additional funds. Our marketable securities, unencumbered properties, and lines of credit provide the Company with additional liquidity. The Company also holds a 40% equity interest in its joint venture with Nuveen Real Estate, which owns one newly developed community that is unencumbered.

 

30

 

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had total assets of $1.4 billion and total liabilities of $643.5 million. The Company’s net debt (net of unamortized debt issuance costs and cash and cash equivalents) to total market capitalization as of March 31, 2022 was approximately 13% and the Company’s net debt, less securities to total market capitalization as of March 31, 2022 was approximately 11%. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had mortgages totaling $52.7 million due within the next 12 months. The Company believes that it has the ability to meet its obligations and to generate funds for new investments.

 

Impact of COVID-19

 

The following discussion is intended to provide certain information regarding the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and management’s efforts to respond to those impacts.

 

We continue to monitor our operations and government recommendations and have taken steps to make the safety, security and welfare of our employees, their families and our residents a top priority.

 

Collections are consistent with pre-pandemic levels and we have collected 94% of April 2022 site and home rent as of today’s date. Some of our residents benefitted from the federal government’s funding of the Emergency Rental Assistance Programs that were enacted in each state.

 

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remains uncertain and dependent on future developments, including the possible emergence of new variants of the original virus and the ongoing roll-out of vaccines and their efficacy. We will continue to monitor these rapidly evolving developments and respond in the best interests of our employees, residents and shareholders. At this time, we believe that the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences will not have a material adverse effect on our operations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
