SAN DIEGO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2022 / Presidio Property Trust, Inc. (NASDAQ:SQFT, SQFTP) (the 'Company'), an internally managed, diversified real estate investment trust ('REIT'), today reported earnings for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022. All first quarter financial measures referenced herein are unaudited.
'We are pleased to report our first quarter earnings, continuing the strong performance that we saw throughout 2021,' said Jack Heilbron, the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer. 'In the first quarter of 2022, we collected 92% of total tenant billings, including 100% collections among our retail tenants. And just last week, we took advantage of our cash position, to pay off our loan on our 300 NP office property in Fargo, North Dakota in full, prudently deleveraging where it makes sense. That was our last commercial property loan maturing in 2022, with the next commercial property loan not maturing until the middle of 2024.'
'15 office, retail, and industrial leases were signed in the first quarter of 2022, with 7 new tenants and 8 existing tenant renewals,' noted Gary Katz, the Company's Chief Investment Officer. 'We saw continued leasing demand in the first quarter, in all our geographies, among a variety of tenants, including financial services and wireless tenants.'
First Quarter Ended March 31, 2022 Financial Results
Net loss attributable to the Company's common stockholders for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was approximately $(3.8 million), or $(0.32) per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(2.6 million), or $(0.28) per basic and diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021. The change in net income attributable to the Company's common stockholders was a result of:
FFO (non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2022, decreased by approximately $1 million to $(75,167) from $935,725 to the three months ended March 31, 2021, due primarily to the difference in loss (gain) on sale of real estate assets. 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.
Acquisitions and Dispositions for the first quarter of 2022
- World Plaza, which was sold on March 11, 2022, for approximately $10.0 million and the Company recognized a loss of approximately $0.3 million.
- The Company disposed of 11 model homes for approximately $5.6 million and recognized a gain of approximately $1.8 million.

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 primarily in Texas 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 a number of 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 is also the sponsor of the Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) Murphy Canyon Acquisition Corp. (MURFU), which currently holds approximately $140 million in trust. Murphy Canyon Acquisition Corp. is a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. The SPAC intends to focus on companies in the real estate industry, including construction, homebuilding, real estate owners and operators, arrangers of financing, insurance, and other services for real estate, and adjacent businesses and technologies targeting the real estate space with an aggregate combined enterprise value of approximately $300 million to $1.2 billion.

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 also 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.
