BOSTON, Aug. 6, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Winthrop Realty Trust (NYSE:FUR) (the "Company" or "Winthrop"), which is liquidating and winding down pursuant to a plan of liquidation, announced today its financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.
Liquidation Basis of Accounting
As a result of the shareholder approval of the plan of liquidation on August 5, 2014, effective August 1, 2014, the Company began reporting its financial results on the liquidation basis of accounting. The liquidation basis of accounting requires, among other things, that management estimate sales proceeds on an undiscounted basis as well as include in the Company's assets and liabilities the undiscounted estimate of future revenues and expenses of the Company. The estimated net assets in liquidation at June 30, 2015 would result in liquidating distributions of approximately $15.23 per common share. This estimate of future liquidating distributions includes projections of costs and expenses to be incurred during the period required to complete the plan of liquidation. There is inherent uncertainty with these projections and, accordingly, these projections could change materially based on a number of factors both within and outside of Winthrop's control including the timing of sales, the performance of underlying assets and any changes in the underlying assumptions of projected cash flows.
After giving effect to the $1.25 per common share liquidating distribution which was paid on June 16, 2015 this current estimate represents an increase in liquidating distributions of $0.09 per common share over the Company's estimate at March 31, 2015. The increase is primarily the result of increased liquidation values for the Company's luxury residential property in Stamford, Connecticut and its office property in Cerritos, California both of which are under contract to be sold. In addition, the Company's investments in the Sullivan Center, Vintage Housing Holdings and Concord Debt Holdings were increased slightly. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in the liquidation value of the Company's investment in CDH CDO based on a decrease in the estimated underlying collateral value of one of the loan assets held by the venture. No change has been made to the valuation of the Company's investment in 701 Times Square.
