BFC has held a meaningful stake in BBX since 1987, and if the proposed merger is consummated, BBX Capital will be a wholly owned subsidiary of BFC.

Levan, Acting Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of BBX Capital.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, which was entered into on July 27, 2016 and unanimously approved by a special committee comprised of BBX Capital's independent directors as well as the boards of directors of both companies, BBX Capital's shareholders other than BFC will be entitled to receive, at their election, 5.4 shares of BFC's Class A Common Stock or $20.00 in cash for each share of BBX Capital's Class A Common Stock held by them.

BBX Capital Real Estate

BBX Capital Real Estate includes our real estate joint ventures and our legacy portfolio of loans and foreclosed real estate from our former wholly-owned subsidiary BankAtlantic. As previously announced, we are liquidating some legacy real estate and loans while holding and managing others for capital appreciation and development. Highlights during the second quarter of 2016 include:

  • Closings commenced on single-family units by the Hialeah Communities joint venture and the Village at Victoria Park joint venture
  • Recoveries from loans previously charged off were $6.4 million

BBX Capital Partners

BBX Capital Partners is actively engaged in investments in and management of operating companies. BBX Capital Partners' primary investments as of June 30, 2016 were in Renin Holdings, LLC ("Renin") and BBX Sweet Holdings.

Renin had sales of $16.5 million and $30.3 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, compared to sales of $15.4 million and $29.0 million for the comparable 2015 periods. Renin generated net income of $724,000 and $813,000 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, compared to net income of $167,000 and a net loss of $660,000 for the comparable 2015 periods. The increase in Renin's net income reflects gains related to foreign currency and an improved margin primarily due to a higher proportion of sales of higher margin products.

BBX Sweet Holdings reported sales of $4.7 million and $11.9 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to sales of $4.2 million and $10.2 million for the comparable 2015 periods, respectively. BBX Sweet Holdings' reported a net loss of $7.3 million and $9.0 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million and $2.3 million for the comparable 2015 periods, respectively.

The increase in BBX Sweet Holdings net losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the same 2015 periods were primarily associated with approximately $3.0 million in inventory markdowns, mainly relating to excess and obsolete inventory, and approximately $0.8 million impairment of trademarks, properties and equipment, and contract termination costs associated with the closing and relocation of one of its sales office and distribution facilities in California to its manufacturing facility in Utah. BBX Sweet Holdings also continued to incur costs to integrate companies acquired during 2014 and 2015 and higher compensation expense related to the hiring of senior management. Also contributing to increased net losses were costs associated with opening five new Hoffman's retail stores during 2015 and 2016. It is anticipated that BBX Sweet Holdings will continue to experience losses as it incurs expenses associated with these activities and the continued expansion of its business.

Bluegreen also acquires VOI inventory from resorts' POAs and other third parties close to the time Bluegreen intends to sell such VOIs. Such VOIs are typically obtained by the POAs through foreclosure in connection with maintenance fee defaults, and are generally acquired by Bluegreen at a significant discount. Bluegreen refers to sales of inventory acquired through these arrangements as "Secondary Market Sales."
(2)   Equity trade allowances are amounts granted to customers upon trading in their existing VOIs in connection with the purchase of additional VOIs.

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), provision for income taxes and franchise taxes, 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.

The Company considers Bluegreen's EBITDA to be an indicator of Bluegreen's operating performance, and it is 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. 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 depreciation and amortization expense among companies.
