  Totals (Average) 1,677 $ 100.2mm $ 60,000  


(1)  Land sales transaction which requires the Company to incur the cost to provide the requisite mitigation credits necessary for obtaining the applicable regulatory permits for the buyer, with such costs representing either our basis in credits that we own or potentially up to 5% - 10% of the contract amount noted.
(2)  The Company expects that the buyer will complete the transaction in two separate closings, the first for approximately 123 acres with expected proceeds of approximately $29.3 million.


As noted above, these agreements contemplate closing dates ranging from early 2019 through fiscal year 2020, and although we anticipate that some of the transactions will likely close in 2019, some of the buyers may not be contractually obligated to close until after 2019. Each of the transactions are in varying stages of due diligence by the various buyers including, in some instances, making submissions to the planning and development departments of the City of Daytona Beach, pursuing permitting activities with other applicable governmental authorities including wetlands permits from the St. John’s River Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, conducting traffic analyses to determine potential road impact requirements with the Florida Department of Transportation, and negotiating other matters with Volusia County. In addition to other customary closing conditions, the majority of these transactions are conditioned upon the receipt of approvals or permits from those various governmental authorities, as well as other matters that are beyond our control. If such approvals are not obtained or costs to meet governmental requirements or obligations are too high, the prospective buyers may have the ability to terminate their respective agreements prior to closing. As a result, there can be no assurances regarding the likelihood or timing of any one of these potential land transactions being completed or the final terms thereof, including the sales price.

Balance Sheet Update

Share Repurchase Program :

  • In Q4 2018 repurchased 102,399 shares of our common stock for approximately $5.9 million, an average purchase price of $57.23 per share.
  • For 2018 repurchased 168,602 shares of our common stock for approximately $9.8 million, an average purchase price of $58.35 per share.
  • In January 2019 Company’s Board authorized $10 million increase to the buyback program.

Book Value Per Share : Our book value per share increased to $38.95 as of year-end, an increase of $5.97 per share, or approximately 18% compared to the end of 2017.

Golf Operations

The Company’s operating results were negatively impacted by the poor performance of the golf operations segment, including an operating loss of approximately $906,000 for the full year and the impairment charge taken in the third quarter of 2018 which wrote down the golf operations assets by approximately $1.1 million.

The company retained a broker in January 2019 to pursue a sale of the golf operations. Based on the status of the Company’s activities to dispose of the golf operations segment the Company has classified the golf operations as a discontinued operation which includes classifying the assets and liabilities as held for sale as of December 31, 2018 and all prior periods presented and presenting all elements of the operating results of the golf operations in the Company’s statement of operations as a separate net amount below its operating results from continued operations for the years ended December 31, 2018 and all prior periods presented.
