BBX Capital, Inc. Reports Financial Results For the Third Quarter 2020

·19 min read

BBX Capital, Inc. (OTCQX: BBXIA) (PINK: BBXIB) ("BBX Capital" or "the Company") reported today its financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

Selected highlights of BBX Capital’s consolidated financial results include:

Third Quarter 2020 Compared to Third Quarter 2019:

  • Total consolidated revenues of $42.2 million vs. $47.7 million

  • (Loss) income before income taxes of ($10.4 million) vs. $24.1 million

  • Net (loss) income attributable to shareholders of ($8.3 million) vs. $13.6 million.

  • Diluted (loss) earnings per share of ($0.43) vs. $0.70

Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2020

  • Total consolidated assets of $387.4 million

  • Total shareholders' equity of $313.7 million

  • Fully diluted book value per share of $16.24 (1)

(1) Fully diluted book value per share is stockholders’ equity divided by the number of BBX Capital’s Class A and Class B common shares outstanding on September 30, 2020.

Jarett S. Levan, Chief Executive Officer and President of BBX Capital, Inc., commented, "October 1, 2020 marked a new beginning for the Company as a result of our spin-off from the former BBX Capital Corporation (which changed its name to Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation in connection with the spin-off). As a consequence, I’d like to begin by commenting on our philosophy and our goals for our future direction. BBX Capital and its affiliates date back more than forty years, and our management team has a long history of entrepreneurship. Our goal has always been to build long-term shareholder value with an objective of long-term growth as measured by increases in book value and intrinsic value over time. As part of our efforts to achieve this goal, we have sought to avoid a short-term focus on quarterly or yearly earnings and instead have sought to invest in a diverse portfolio of real estate and operating companies with entrepreneurial cultures and talented management teams.

"While our businesses have been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated economic uncertainties, as reflected by IT’SUGAR’s recent filing of voluntary petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 bankruptcy, we believe that we are moving forward prudently in response to the current circumstances. We would note that we have adequate capital resources to execute our plans and remain in a position to deploy our capital as opportunities arise, as evidenced by Renin’s recent acquisition of Colonial Elegance in October 2020," Levan concluded.

Additional Information

The Company was spun-off from Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation on September 30, 2020, and as a result, the Company’s financial results prior to September 30, 2020 were derived from the accounting records of Bluegreen Vacations Holding Corporation. Accordingly, other than its consolidated statement of financial condition as of September 30, 2020, the Company’s financial results included in this release and in its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements included its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 do not necessarily reflect what the Company’s results of operations, financial position, or cash flows would have been had the Company been a separate entity during the periods covered by the financial statements and are not indicative of the future results of the Company.

For more complete and detailed information regarding BBX Capital and its financial results, business, operations, investments, and risks, as well as further details regarding the basis of presentation of BBX Capital’s financial results prior to September 30, 2020, please see BBX Capital’s Information Statement, dated August 27, 2020 included as Exhibit 99.1 to BBX Capital’s Registration Statement on Form 10 filed with the SEC on August 27, 2020 and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, which are available on the SEC's website, https://www.sec.gov, and on BBX Capital’s website, www.BBXCapital.com.

Financial Results

The following selected information relates to the financial results of the Company’s principal holdings: BBX Capital Real Estate, BBX Sweet Holdings, and Renin.

BBX Capital Real Estate - Selected Financial Data

Selected highlights of BBX Capital Real Estate’s ("BBXRE") financial results include:

Third Quarter 2020 Compared to Third Quarter 2019:

  • Revenues of $5.9 million vs. $1.1 million

  • Equity in net (losses) earnings of unconsolidated real estate joint ventures of ($0.6 million) vs. $28.5 million

  • Income before income taxes of $1.0 million vs. $29.1 million

BBXRE’s operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same 2019 period primarily reflect a decrease in equity in net earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures primarily due to BBXRE recognizing $29.1 million of equity earnings from the Altis at Bonterra joint venture in 2019 as a result of the sale of its 314 unit multifamily apartment community in August 2019. This decrease was partially offset by an increase in net profits from the sale of developed lots to homebuilders at the Beacon Lake Community development, as BBXRE sold 62 developed lots during the 2020 period and no developed lots during the 2019 period.

BBX Sweet Holdings- Selected Financial Data

Selected highlights of BBX Sweet Holdings’ financial results (2) include:

Third Quarter 2020 Compared to Third Quarter 2019:

  • Trade sales of $15.2 million vs. $28.1 million

  • Gross margin of $3.5 million vs. $10.8 million

  • Gross margin percentage of 23.0% vs. 38.6%

  • Loss before income taxes of ($8.2 million) vs. ($0.1 million)

(2) As BBX Sweet Holdings’ continues to own a noncontrolling equity investment in IT’SUGAR, IT’SUGAR’s results of operations are not reflected as discontinued operations in the Company’s financial statements and are therefore included in the Company’s financial results presented above through September 22, 2020, the date that the Company deconsolidated IT’SUGAR.

BBX Sweet Holdings’ operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same 2019 period reflect the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on BBX Sweet Holdings’ operations, including lower sales and gross margin as a result of the impact of the pandemic on consumer demand, and the recognition of a $3.3 million loss on the deconsolidation of IT’SUGAR as a result of the filing by IT’SUGAR and its subsidiaries of voluntary petitions to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

At the current time, IT’SUGAR is continuing to operate its retail locations under the supervision of the Bankruptcy Court and Creditors’ Committee and is negotiating with its creditors in relation to a proposed Reorganization Plan and the terms of amendments to the lease agreements associated with its retail locations. In addition, subsequent to September 30, 2020, IT’SUGAR obtained a $4.0 million "debtor in possession" credit facility from a subsidiary of BBX Capital that was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on an interim basis pending a final hearing. As of November 9, 2020, $2.0 million had been funded to IT’SUGAR.

Renin - Selected Financial Data

Selected highlights of Renin’s financial results include:

Third Quarter 2020 Compared to Third Quarter 2019:

  • Trade sales of $19.7 million vs. $16.4 million

  • Gross margin of $3.7 million vs. $3.5 million

  • Gross margin percentage of 19.0% vs. 21.0%

  • Income before income taxes of $1.5 million vs. $0.5 million

Renin’s operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same 2019 period reflect an increase in Renin’s trade sales resulting from a net increase in sales to customers in its retail and commercial channels and a decrease in selling, general, and administrative expenses primarily due to lower marketing, travel, and trade show expenses primarily as a result of travel restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and lower consulting expenses. Renin’s gross margin percentage was negatively impacted by increased costs related to the shipment of products and raw materials largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As previously disclosed, in October 2020, Renin acquired substantially all of the assets and assumed certain of the liabilities of Colonial Elegance, a supplier and distributor of building products, including barn doors, closet doors, and stair parts, that is headquartered in Montreal, Canada. The base purchase price for the acquisition was CAD $51.0 million (approximately USD $39.0 million) plus a payment of CAD $6.7 million (approximately USD $5.1 million) for excess working capital, with the payment for excess working capital subject to adjustment based on the final determination of the excess working capital amount delivered at closing. BBX Capital made a $5.0 million capital contribution to Renin to partially fund the acquisition, while the remaining amounts paid in the acquisition were funded by Renin using approximately $38.0 million of borrowings under its credit facility with TD Bank, which was amended and restated in connection with the acquisition. For more complete and detailed information regarding the acquisition of Colonial Elegance and the amendments to Renin’s credit facility with TD Bank, please see BBX Capital’s Current Report on Form 8-K dated October 22, 2020 and its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020, which is available on the SEC's website, https://www.sec.gov, and on BBX Capital’s website, www.BBXCapital.com.
