Five Point Holdings, LLC, an owner and developer of large mixed-use, master-planned communities in California, including Valencia Segment (formerly Newhall), reported Thursday its first quarter 2020 results.

Emile Haddad, Chairman and CEO, said, “In these unprecedented times, we are thankful that all of our associates are healthy, comforted by the strength of our balance sheet and liquidity, encouraged by the performance of our guest builders, grateful to those who continue investing in our vision, and proud of our team.”

First Quarter 2020 Consolidated Results

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2020, total liquidity of $372.4 million was comprised of cash and cash equivalents totaling $247.8 million and borrowing availability of $124.7 million under our $125.0 million unsecured revolving credit facility. Total capital was $1.8 billion, reflecting $2.9 billion in assets and $1.1 billion in liabilities and redeemable noncontrolling interests.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2020

Revenues. Revenues of $9.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were primarily generated from management services.

Equity in loss from unconsolidated entities. Equity in loss from unconsolidated entities was $30.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 comprised of a $3.5 million loss from our 37.5% percentage interest in the Great Park Venture and a $0.6 million loss from our 75% interest in the Gateway Commercial Venture. Equity in loss from unconsolidated entities also included the recognition of an other-than-temporary impairment of $26.9 million attributed to our investment in the Great Park Venture.

Selling, general, and administrative. Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $24.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Net loss. Consolidated net loss for the quarter was $53.2 million. The net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests totaled $28.4 million, resulting in net loss attributable to the Company of $24.8 million.

Segment Results

Valencia Segment (formerly Newhall). Total segment revenues were $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2020 and were derived from agricultural land leasing and the sale of citrus crops. Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $3.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

San Francisco Segment. Total segment revenues were $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2020. Revenues during the quarter were mostly attributable to fees generated from management agreements. Selling, general, and administrative expenses were $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Great Park Segment. Total segment revenues were $29.5 million for the first quarter of 2020. Revenues were mainly attributable to the sale of land entitled for 35 homesites on approximately four acres at the Great Park Neighborhoods. Initial gross proceeds from the sale were $20.3 million representing the base purchase price. The Great Park segment’s net loss for the quarter was $2.5 million, which included net income of $1.8 million from management services and a net loss of $4.3 million attributed to the Great Park Venture. We do not include the Great Park Venture as a consolidated subsidiary in our consolidated financial statements, but rather account for it as an equity method investee. After adjusting to account for a difference in investment basis, the Company’s equity in loss from the Great Park Venture was $3.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. During the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s equity in loss from the Great Park Venture also included the recognition of an other-than-temporary impairment of $26.9 million attributed to our investment in the Great Park Venture. The impairment was primarily a result of expected delays in both the timing of land sales to builders and distributions to us causing a decline in the fair value of our investment in the Great Park Venture.

Commercial Segment. Total segment revenues were $8.6 million from tenant leases at the Five Point Gateway Campus and property management services provided by us to the Gateway Commercial Venture during the first quarter of 2020. Segment expenses were mostly comprised of depreciation, amortization and interest expense totaling $7.5 million. Segment net loss was approximately $0.6 million, which included net income of $0.1 million from management services and a net loss of $0.7 million attributed to the Gateway Commercial Venture. We do not include the Gateway Commercial Venture as a consolidated subsidiary in our consolidated financial statements, but rather account for it as an equity method investee. Our share of equity in loss from the Gateway Commercial Venture totaled $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

    I guess that means they can say everything is just fine so you will buy their stock while they know darn well there are all kinds of problems – like people can’t buy a house if they don’t have a job and we may run out of water to build all those houses anyway, especially with all the wells recently closed due to pollution.

  2. waterwatcher says:

    AND why are they trying to re-brand Newhall Ranch as “Valencia” anyway? Could it be because Newhall Ranch has a really bad reputation with Mission Village built on top of an old oil field and Landmark village located right across from one of the largest dumps in the US?
