SAN DIEGO, Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Presidio Property Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq: SQFT, SQFTP, SQFTW) (the “Company”), an internally managed, diversified real estate investment trust (“REIT”), today reported earnings for its quarter ended September 30, 2023.
Quarter Ended September 30, 2023, Financial Results
Net income attributable to the Company’s common stockholders for the three months ended September 30, 2023 was approximately $20.96 million, or $1.77 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of approximately $1.30 million, or $(0.11) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The change in net income attributable to the Company’s common stockholders was a result of:
- During September, the Company’s sponsored SPAC Murphy Canyon Acquisition Corp. completed its business combination with Conduit Pharmaceuticals, Inc., resulting in the Company recognizing a gain on deconsolidation of $40.32 million.
- The Company remeasured the fair market value of its investment in Conduit as of September 30, 2023, resulting in a loss of approximately $17.68 million on the Conduit marketable securities.
- The gain on sale of real estate decreased approximately $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 as compared to the same period in 2022. This is directly related to the number of model homes that were sold in each quarter. There were seven model homes sold in Q3 2022 with an average gain per home of $180k, compared to five model homes sold in Q3 2023 with an average gain per home of $144k.
- Noncontrolling interest payments were approximately $442,000 smaller in Q3 2023 compared to Q3 2022. This is due to the Company selling homes in its joint ventures. In the joint venture partnerships, the Company sold 3 homes for a gain of $0.6 million and 6 homes for a gain of $1.1 million in Q2 2023 and Q2 2022 respectively.
FFO (non-GAAP) decreased by approximately $0.2 million to approximately $(414,365) from $(189,927) for the three months ended September 30, 2023, and September 30, 2022, respectively. A reconciliation of FFO to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is attached to this press release. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization as well as the changes in the value of the Company’s properties that result from use or market conditions, each of which have real economic effects and could materially impact the Company’s results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company’s performance is limited.
We believe Core FFO (non-GAAP) provides a useful metric in comparing operations between reporting periods and in assessing the sustainability of our ongoing operating performance. Core FFO decreased by about $0.2 million, from approximately $91,054 in the three months ended September 30, 2022, to approximately $(126,673) in the three months ended September 30, 2023. A reconciliation of Core FFO to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is attached to this press release.
Acquisitions and Dispositions for the first three quarters of 2023
- The Company acquired 25 model home properties and leased them back to the homebuilders under triple net leases during the nine months ended September 30, 2023. The purchase price for these properties was $13.7 million. The purchase price consisted of cash payments of $4.2 million and mortgage notes of $9.5 million.
- The Company sold 15 model home properties for approximately $7.8 million and recognized a gain of approximately $2.3 million.
Dividends paid during the three quarters of 2023:
- During the first, second and third quarters of 2023, the Company declared dividends to common shareholders of $0.022, $0.023 and $0.023 per share, respectively, for a total of $0.068 per share.
- During the nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company paid nine monthly dividends, which totaled $1.75779 per share, to shareholders of Series D preferred stock.
About Presidio Property Trust
Presidio is an internally managed, diversified REIT with holdings in model home properties which are triple-net leased to homebuilders, office, industrial, and retail properties. Presidio’s model homes are leased to homebuilders located in Arizona, Illinois, Texas, Wisconsin, and Florida. Our office, industrial and retail properties are located primarily in Colorado, with properties also located in Maryland, North Dakota, Texas, and Southern California. While geographical clustering of real estate enables us to reduce our operating costs through economies of scale by servicing several properties with less staff, it makes us susceptible to changing market conditions in these discrete geographic areas, including those that have developed as a result of COVID-19. Presidio owns approximately 6.5% of the outstanding common stock of Conduit Pharmaceuticals Inc., a disease agnostic multi-asset clinical-stage disease-agnostic life science company providing an efficient model for compound development.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Funds from Operations (“FFO”) – The Company evaluates performance based on Funds From Operations, which we refer to as FFO, as management believes that FFO represents the most accurate measure of activity and is the basis for distributions paid to equity holders. The Company defines FFO as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, hedge ineffectiveness, acquisition costs of newly acquired properties that are not capitalized and lease acquisition costs that are not capitalized plus depreciation and amortization, including amortization of acquired above and below market lease intangibles and impairment charges on properties or investments in non-consolidated REITs, and after adjustments to exclude equity in income or losses from, and, to include the proportionate share of FFO from, non-consolidated REITs.
However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization as well as the changes in the value of the Company’s properties that result from use or market conditions, each of which have real economic effects and could materially impact the Company’s results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of the Company’s performance is limited. In addition, other REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition as the Company does, and, accordingly, the Company’s FFO may not be comparable to other REITs’ FFO. Accordingly, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of the Company’s performance.
Core Funds from Operations (“Core FFO”) – We calculate Core FFO by using FFO as defined by NAREIT and adjusting for certain other non-core items. We exclude from our Core FFO calculation acquisition costs, loss on early extinguishment of debt, changes in the fair value of the earn-out, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, non-cash warrant dividends and the amortization of stock-based compensation.
We believe Core FFO provides a useful metric in comparing operations between reporting periods and in assessing the sustainability of our ongoing operating performance. Other equity REITs may calculate Core FFO differently or not at all, and, accordingly, the Company’s Core FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs’ Core FFO.
