See the supplemental tables included in this release for a reconciliation of BBX Capital’s net income to Adjusted EBITDA.

Balance Sheet as of September 30, 2019 Compared to December 31, 2018

  • Total consolidated assets of $1.8 billion vs. $1.7 billion
  • Total shareholders' equity of $556.7 million vs. $549.6 million
  • Fully diluted book value per share of $5.77 vs. $5.70 (1)
(1)

Fully diluted book value per share is shareholders’ equity divided by the number of Class A and Class B common shares outstanding plus unvested restricted stock awards as of period end

During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, the Company repurchased approximately 1.4 million shares of its Class A Common Stock for $7.0 million pursuant to the share repurchase program approved by the Company’s Board of Directors in June 2017. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had repurchased approximately 3.3 million shares of its Class A Common Stock for $18.9 million under the June 2017 repurchase program.

Alan B. Levan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BBX Capital Corporation, commented, “The third quarter of 2019 reflects our ongoing objectives to increase intrinsic value for our shareholders, to position our segments for long-term growth, and to streamline our business verticals. During the quarter, we realized our investment in our Altis at Bonterra joint venture, which resulted in earnings of $29.1 million and cash proceeds of $46.0 million. In addition, Bluegreen remained focused on its ongoing growth initiatives, including the addition of vacation package sales kiosks in seven Cabela’s locations and the addition of inventory and sales office space at the Fountains Resort in Orlando, Florida. Further, as part of our ongoing efforts to streamline our business verticals, we exited our operations as a franchisee of MOD Pizza restaurants in Florida.”

“As we have stated each quarter, since many of BBX Capital’s assets do not generate income on a regular or predictable basis, our objective continues to be long term growth as measured by increases in book value and intrinsic value over time,” Levan concluded.

BBX Capital Real Estate - Selected Financial Data

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

Third Quarter 2019 Compared to Third Quarter 2018:

  • Revenues of $1.1 million vs. $8.3 million
  • Equity in net earnings of unconsolidated real estate joint ventures of $28.5 million vs. $0.4 million
  • Income before income taxes of $29.1 million vs. $1.9 million

BBXRE’s results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the same 2018 period reflect an increase in equity in earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures primarily due to the Altis at Bonterra joint venture’s sale of its 314 unit multifamily apartment community located in Hialeah, Florida. As a result of the sale, BBXRE recognized $29.1 million of equity earnings and received approximately $46.0 million of distributions from the joint venture during the third quarter of 2019.

Renin - Selected Financial Data

Selected highlights of Renin’s financial results include:

Third Quarter 2019 Compared to Third Quarter 2018:

  • Trade sales of $16.4 million vs. $15.3 million
  • Gross margin of $3.5 million vs. $3.0 million
  • Gross margin percentage of 21.04% vs. 19.73%
  • Income before income taxes of $479,000 vs. $693,000
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $0.9 million vs $1.3 million (1)
(1)

See the supplemental tables included in this release for a reconciliation of Renin’s net income to Adjusted EBITDA.

Renin’s operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the same 2018 period reflect an increase in trade sales due to higher sales volume from Renin’s retail channel customers and an improvement in Renin’s gross margin percentage, which reflects lower cost of manufactured products and a barn door product promotion in 2018 that was not repeated in 2019, partially offset by the impact of tariffs on products imported from China. These improvements were offset by an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily due to consulting expenses and higher employee compensation expenses associated with performance bonuses.

IT’SUGAR- Selected Financial Data

Selected highlights of IT’SUGAR’s financial results include:

Third Quarter 2019 Compared to Third Quarter 2018:

  • Trade sales of $24.7 million vs. $22.7 million
  • Gross margin of $10.8 million vs. $10.4 million
  • Gross margin percentage of 43.67% vs. 46.01%
  • Income before income taxes of $1.2 million vs. $1.6 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million vs $2.7 million (1)
(1)

See the supplemental tables included in this release for a reconciliation of IT’SUGAR’s net income to Adjusted EBITDA

IT'SUGAR's operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 as compared to the same 2018 period reflect a net increase in trade sales and gross margin primarily due to the opening of new locations during the fourth quarter of 2018 and the first nine months of 2019, including the FAO Schweetz location in New York City and the Grand Bazaar location in Las Vegas. These increases were offset by a net increase in selling, general, and administrative expenses primarily due to expenses associated with IT’SUGAR’s new locations, executive severance expense, and costs related to the closure of certain store locations.

IT’SUGAR anticipates opening a 21,000 square foot, three-story flagship location at American Dream, a three million square foot shopping and entertainment complex in New Jersey, during the fourth quarter of 2019.

Other Investments

The Company also has other investments in various operating businesses that generated aggregate losses before income taxes of $6.3 million and $2.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively. The aggregate losses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 includes $4.0 million of impairment losses recognized in connection with the Company’s exit of its operations as a franchisee of MOD Pizza restaurant locations in Florida, as the Company terminated its area development and franchise agreements with MOD Pizza, transferred seven of its restaurant locations to MOD Pizza, and closed its remaining two locations during the third quarter of 2019.

System-wide Sales of VOIs is a non-GAAP measure and represents all sales of VOIs, whether owned by Bluegreen or a third party immediately prior to the sale. Sales of VOIs owned by third parties are transacted as sales of VOIs in Bluegreen’s Vacation Club through the same selling and marketing process it uses to sell its VOI inventory. Bluegreen considers system-wide sales of VOIs to be an important operating measure because it reflects all sales of VOIs by its sales and marketing operations without regard to whether Bluegreen or a third party owned such VOI inventory at the time of sale. System-wide sales of VOIs should not be considered as an alternative to sales of VOIs or any other measure of financial performance derived in accordance with GAAP or to any other method of analyzing results as reported under GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP measure and is defined as cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures for property and equipment. The Company and Bluegreen focus on the generation of free cash flow. The Company considers free cash flow to be a useful supplemental measure of the Company’s and Bluegreen’s ability to generate cash flow from operations and is a supplemental measure of liquidity. Free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of its liquidity. The Company's computation of free cash flow may differ from the methodology utilized by other companies. Investors are cautioned that the items excluded from free cash flow are a significant component in understanding and assessing the Company’s financial performance.

Bluegreen’s EBITDA is defined as earnings or net income, before taking into account interest income (excluding interest earned on VOI notes receivable), interest expense (excluding interest expense incurred on financings related to Bluegreen’s receivable-backed notes payable), income and franchise taxes, and depreciation and amortization. For purposes of the EBITDA calculation, no adjustments were made for interest income earned on Bluegreen’s VOI notes receivable or the interest expense incurred on debt that is secured by such notes receivable because they are both considered to be part of the operations of Bluegreen’s business.

 

Bluegreen’s Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest in Bluegreen/Big Cedar Vacations (in which Bluegreen has a 51% equity interest) and items that the Company believes are not representative of ongoing operating results. Accordingly, amounts paid, accrued, or incurred in connection with the Bass Pro settlement in June 2019 were excluded in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2019.

 

The Company considers Bluegreen’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be an indicator of Bluegreen’s operating performance, and they are used to measure Bluegreen’s ability to service debt, fund capital expenditures and expand its business. EBITDA is also used by companies, lenders, investors and others because it excludes certain items that can vary widely across different industries or among companies within the same industry. For example, interest expense can be dependent on a company’s capital structure, debt levels and credit ratings. Accordingly, the impact of interest expense on earnings can vary significantly among companies. Additionally, the tax positions of companies can also vary because of their differing abilities to take advantage of tax benefits and because of the tax policies of the jurisdictions in which they operate. As a result, effective tax rates and provision for income taxes can vary considerably among companies. EBITDA also excludes depreciation and amortization because companies utilize productive assets of different ages and use different methods of both acquiring and depreciating productive assets. These differences can result in considerable variability in the relative costs of productive assets and the related depreciation and amortization expense among companies.

 

The Company considers Bluegreen’s Adjusted EBITDA to be a useful supplemental measure of Bluegreen’s operating performance that facilitates the comparability of historical financial periods.

 

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of Bluegreen's financial performance or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of its liquidity. The Company's computation of Bluegreen’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methodology utilized by other companies. Investors are cautioned that items excluded from EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing Bluegreen’s financial performance.

Renin’s EBITDA is defined as its earnings, or net income, before taking into account interest expense, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization, including the amortization of product displays provided to customers for marketing purposes that are presented as a reduction of trade sales under GAAP. Renin’s Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA adjusted for foreign exchange gains and losses, as exchange rates may vary significantly among companies.

 

The Company considers Renin’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be an indicator of Renin’s operating performance, and they are used to measure Renin’s ability to service debt, fund capital expenditures and expand its business.

Accordingly, amounts paid, accrued, or incurred in connection with the Bass Pro settlement in June 2019, as well as impairments of property and equipment and intangible assets related to the Company’s MOD Pizza restaurant locations, were excluded in the computation of Adjusted EBITDA in the applicable 2019 periods.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of BBX Capital’s financial performance or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of its liquidity. BBX Capital’s EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methodology utilized by other companies. Investors are cautioned that items excluded from EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing BBX Capital’s financial performance.
