CEO Comments

“We had a very active third quarter, signing new leases on more than 10% of our existing vacancies and selling more than $75 million of single tenant properties for a 5.0% weighted average exit cap rate, including our largest single tenant office property,” commented John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTO Realty Growth. “The net investment spreads we have been able to generate to-date on the strategic sale of non-core assets and the redeployment of those proceeds, combined with anticipated strong growth in 2022 same-store net operating income and the ample liquidity on our balance sheet for investment into our pipeline of high-quality, multi-tenanted retail and mixed-use properties, is positioning us for very attractive FFO and AFFO growth in 2022.”

The increase in total revenue during the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to income produced by the Company’s recent income property acquisitions as compared to the income from properties sold by the Company during the comparative period. Revenues also increased from the sale of subsurface interests and mitigation credits, which are reflected in real estate operations, as well as from increased income from the Company’s portfolio of commercial loan and master lease investments and increased management fee income from PINE.

The increase in net income attributable to the Company for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to gains on dispositions of income properties totaling $22.7 million, or $3.84 per diluted share, most notably from the disposition of the Company’s office property in Raleigh, North Carolina leased to Wells Fargo, which resulted in a gain on disposition of $17.5 million.

Reported per diluted share amounts attributable to common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2021 include the dilutive effects of the Company’s previously announced special distribution, which was paid in connection with the Company’s election to be taxable as a REIT commencing with its taxable year ended December 31, 2020. The Special Distribution was paid in the fourth quarter of 2020 through an aggregate of $5.6 million in cash and the issuance of 1,198,963 shares of the Company’s common stock; therefore, there was no dilutive impact for the three months ended September 30, 2020.

Increased revenues were partially offset by decreased revenues from the Company’s portfolio of commercial loan and master lease investments.

Net income attributable to the Company for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to gains on dispositions of income properties totaling $28.1 million, or $4.77 per diluted share, most notably from the disposition of the Company’s office property in Raleigh, North Carolina leased to Wells Fargo, which resulted in a gain on disposition of $17.5 million. In addition, the non-cash, unrealized gain on the mark-to-market of the Company’s investment in PINE, as compared to an unrealized loss in the comparable prior year period, totaled $6.9 million, or $1.17 per diluted share. The operating results for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 also include a non-cash impairment charge on the Company’s retained interest in the joint venture that currently holds approximately 1,600 acres of undeveloped land in Daytona Beach, Florida (the “Land JV”) of $16.5 million, or $2.11 per diluted share, net of the related income tax benefit. The non-cash impairment charge is a result of the executed agreement to sell the Land JV’s remaining holdings.

Reported per diluted share amounts attributable to common stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 include the dilutive effects of the Company’s previously announced special distribution, which was paid in connection with the Company’s election to be taxable as a REIT commencing with its taxable year ended December 31, 2020. The Special Distribution was paid in the fourth quarter of 2020 through an aggregate of $5.6 million in cash and the issuance of 1,198,963 shares of the Company’s common stock; therefore, there was no dilutive impact for the nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Acquisitions

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company acquired three multi-tenant retail-based properties for $111.0 million. These acquisitions represent a weighted average going-in cash cap rate of 8.5%.

On October 18, 2021, the Company entered into a purchase and sale agreement with a partnership for the acquisition of a retail center in the Raleigh, North Carolina metropolitan area for $70.5 million (the “Property”). Certain customary closing conditions must be met before or at the closing and are not currently satisfied. Accordingly, until the closing of the purchase of the Property, there can be no assurance that the Company will acquire the Property.

Dispositions

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold four single tenant income properties for a total disposition volume of $75.3 million, at a weighted average exit cap rate of 5.0%. The sale of the properties generated aggregate gains of $22.7 million. The proceeds from each of the third quarter 2021 sales are expected to be part of section 1031 like-kind exchanges.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold fourteen income properties for a total disposition volume of $140.8 million, at a weighted average exit cap rate of 6.0%. The sale of the properties generated aggregate gains of $28.0 million.

Income Property Portfolio

As of September 30, 2021, the Company’s portfolio had economic occupancy of 90.4% and physical occupancy of 89.6%.

The Company’s income property portfolio consisted of the following as of September 30, 2021:

Land Joint Venture

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, the Land JV entered into an agreement to sell its remaining land holdings, including any land previously under contract, for $67.0 million. During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Land JV completed the sale of approximately 8 acres for $0.8 million and as a result, the sales price for the remaining land was reduced to $66.2 million. The sale is anticipated to occur prior to the end of 2021.

Mitigation Bank Joint Venture

On September 30, 2021, the Company purchased the remaining 70% interest in the Mitigation Bank from certain funds and accounts managed by an investment advisor subsidiary of BlackRock, Inc. (“BlackRock”) for a net cash payment by the Company of $16.1 million (the “Interest Purchase”). The Company intends to sell the mitigation credits produced by the Mitigation Bank or may sell the Mitigation Bank in its entirety. During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold mitigation credits for total proceeds of $0.2 million. No assurance can be given that the Company will be able to consummate any future sales or regarding the likelihood, timing, or final terms of any such potential sales.

“We purchased our joint venture partner’s interest in the mitigation bank partnership as a way to reduce interim carrying costs on the mitigation credits as we look to find less expensive long-term partnership capital, monetize the mitigation credits as they are released, or sell the mitigation bank in its entirety, as we believe the mitigation bank will have a market-based mitigation credit value of approximately $30 million over the 10-year credit release period,” noted John P. Albright, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTO Realty Growth.

Subsurface Interests

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold approximately 4,700 acres of subsurface oil, gas and mineral rights for $0.9 million, resulting in a gain on sale of $0.8 million.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company sold approximately 39,000 acres of subsurface oil, gas and mineral rights for $3.5 million, resulting in a gain on sale of $3.3 million. As of September 30, 2021, the Company owns full or fractional subsurface oil, gas, and mineral interests underlying approximately 415,000 “surface” acres of land owned by others in 20 counties in Florida.

Capital Markets and Balance Sheet

On June 28, 2021, the Company priced a public offering of 3,000,000 shares of its Series A Preferred stock at a public offering price of $25.00 per share. The offering closed on July 6, 2021 and generated total net proceeds to the Company of $72.4 million, which were utilized to pay down the Company’s revolving credit facility.

COVID-19 Pandemic

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of the novel coronavirus as a pandemic (the “COVID-19 Pandemic”), which has spread throughout the United States. The impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic and its variants have evolved rapidly, with many jurisdictions taking drastic measures to limit the spread of the virus by instituting quarantines or lockdowns and imposing travel restrictions. Such actions have created significant disruptions to global supply chains, and adversely impacted several industries, including airlines, hospitality, retail and the broader real estate industry.

As a result of the approval of multiple COVID-19 vaccines for use and the distribution of such vaccines among the general population, a number of jurisdictions have reopened and loosened restrictions. However, wide disparities in vaccination rates and continued vaccine hesitancy, combined with the emergence of COVID-19 variants and surges in COVID-19 cases, could trigger the reinstatement of further restrictions. Such restrictions could include mandatory business shut-downs, travel restrictions, reduced business operations and social distancing requirements.

The future impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the real estate industry and the Company’s financial condition and results of operations is uncertain and cannot be predicted currently since it depends on several factors beyond the control of the Company, including, but not limited to: (i) the uncertainty surrounding the severity and duration of the COVID-19 Pandemic, including possible recurrences and differing economic and social impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic in various regions of the United States; (ii) the effectiveness of the United States public health response; (iii) the COVID-19 Pandemic’s impact on the United States and global economies; (iv) the timing, scope and effectiveness of additional governmental responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic; (v) the availability of a treatment and effectiveness of vaccines approved for COVID-19 and the willingness of individuals to get vaccinated; (vi) changes in how certain types of commercial property are used while maintaining social distancing and other techniques intended to control the impact of COVID-19; (vii) the impact of phase out of economic stimulus measures, the inflationary pressure of economic stimulus, and the eventual halt and reversal by the U.S. Treasury of asset purchases; and (viii) the uneven impact on the Company’s tenants, real estate values and cost of capital.

Safe Harbor

Certain statements contained in this press release (other than statements of historical fact) are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements can typically be identified by words such as “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “will,” “could,” “may,” “should,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “forecast,” “project,” and similar expressions, as well as variations or negatives of these words.

Although forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s present expectations and reasonable beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect upon the Company, a number of factors could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Such factors may include, but are not limited to: the Company’s ability to remain qualified as a REIT; the Company’s exposure to U.S. federal and state income tax law changes, including changes to the REIT requirements; general adverse economic and real estate conditions; the ultimate geographic spread, severity and duration of pandemics such as the recent outbreak of the novel coronavirus, actions that may be taken by governmental authorities to contain or address the impact of such pandemics, and the potential negative impacts of such pandemics on the global economy and the Company’s financial condition and results of operations; the inability of major tenants to continue paying their rent or obligations due to bankruptcy, insolvency or a general downturn in their business; the loss or failure, or decline in the business or assets of PINE or the venture formed when the Company sold its controlling interest in the entity that owned the Company’s remaining land portfolio, of which the Company has a retained interest; the completion of 1031 exchange transactions; the availability of investment properties that meet the Company’s investment goals and criteria; the uncertainties associated with obtaining required governmental permits and satisfying other closing conditions for planned acquisitions and sales; and the uncertainties and risk factors discussed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and other risks and uncertainties discussed from time to time in the Company’s filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

There can be no assurance that future developments will be in accordance with management’s expectations or that the effect of future developments on the Company will be those anticipated by management. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this press release. The Company undertakes no obligation to update the information contained in this press release to reflect subsequently occurring events or circumstances.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our reported results are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). We also disclose Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds From Operations (“AFFO”), both of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these two non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they are widely accepted industry measures used by analysts and investors to compare the operating performance of REITs.

FFO and AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or cash flows from operating activities as reported on our statement of cash flows as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures.

We compute FFO in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude extraordinary items (as defined by GAAP), net gain or loss from sales of depreciable real estate assets, impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate assets and real estate related depreciation and amortization, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. The Company also excludes the gains or losses from sales of assets incidental to the primary business of the REIT which specifically include the sales of mitigation credits, impact fee credits, subsurface sales, and the land sales gains included in discontinued operations. To derive AFFO, we modify the NAREIT computation of FFO to include other adjustments to GAAP net income related to non-cash revenues and expenses such as straight-line rental revenue, amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of capitalized lease incentives and above- and below-market lease related intangibles, and non-cash compensation. Such items may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on operating cash flows or long-term operating performance. We use AFFO as one measure of our performance when we formulate corporate goals.

FFO is used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers primarily because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains or losses on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. We believe that AFFO is an additional useful supplemental measure for investors to consider because it will help them to better assess our operating performance without the distortions created by other non-cash revenues or expenses. FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
