On July 17, 2014, the Company acquired a 52,665 square-foot building situated on approximately 7 acres leased to American Signature Inc., in Daytona Beach, Florida. The lease has approximately 6 years remaining on an initial term of 15 years.

The Company also owns the property leased to Barnes & Noble.
The Company completed construction of two flex-office properties, with a total of 31,000 square feet, known as the Williamson Business Park in Daytona Beach, Florida during the second quarter. The 10-year lease executed in September 2013, for 7,700 square feet in the Williamson Business Park commenced in May 2014.
The Company signed a 3-year lease for 2,480 square feet in the Concierge Office Building in Daytona Beach, Florida, bringing the building's occupancy to 100%.
Commercial Loan Investments Update
On May 16, 2014, the Company funded approximately $3.1 million of a $6.3 million first mortgage commitment for the redevelopment of an existing vacant retail property into a Container Store located in Glendale, Arizona, which is expected to open during the first quarter of 2015. The remaining commitment of approximately $3.2 million may be drawn by the borrower as construction costs are incurred. The loan matures in November 2015, includes one six-month extension option, and bears a fixed interest rate of 6.00% per annum. At closing, a loan origination fee of approximately $79,000 was received by the Company and is being accreted ratably into income through the maturity date. Total interest income recognized for this first mortgage during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was approximately $27,000.
On May 20, 2014, the Company acquired an approximate $9.0 million B-Note secured by a retail shopping center located in Sarasota, Florida. The loan matures in June 2015, includes three one-year extension options, and bears a floating interest rate of 30-day LIBOR plus 725 basis points. The loan is subordinate to an approximately $48.0 million A-Note collateralized by the same property, for a total debt balance of $57.0 million. Interest income recognized for this B-Note during the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was approximately $77,000.
As of June 30, 2014, we had five executed purchase and sale agreements to sell land to five different buyers, whose intended use for the land would include retail, industrial, office and residential. One of the five agreements is for the sale of approximately 76 acres for the potential development of a distribution center. These agreements, in aggregate, represent the potential sale of approximately 16% of our remaining land holdings with potential sales proceeds totaling more than approximately $50 million. Each of the transactions are in varying stages of due diligence by the various buyers, including, in some instances having made submissions to the planning and development departments of the applicable governmental authorities. Estimated closing dates range from the third quarter of 2014 to year end 2016. In addition to other customary closing conditions, the majority of these transactions are conditioned upon both the receipt of approvals from various governmental authorities, as well as other matters that are beyond our control. If such approvals are not obtained, the prospective buyers may have the ability to terminate the respective agreement 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, including the sales price.
Total revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 increased 29% to approximately $6.3 million, as compared to approximately $4.8 million during the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily the result of an increase of approximately $359,000, or 11%, in revenue generated by our income properties, an increase of approximately $701,000, or 231%, in revenue from our real estate operations, and approximately $256,000 in revenue from our commercial loan investments, which we did not have in 2013. In the quarter ended June 30, 2014 revenue from our real estate operations benefited from an increase of approximately $592,000 from our subsurface lease and $123,000 from a dirt excavation agreement.
Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2014 increased 38% to approximately $13.4 million, as compared to approximately $9.7 million during the same period in 2013. This increase was primarily the result of an increase of approximately $809,000, or 13%, in revenue generated by our income properties, an increase of approximately $1.6 million, or 256%, in revenue from our real estate operations, and approximately $1.2 million in revenue from our commercial loan investments, which we did not have in 2013. Revenue from our real estate operations benefited from an increase of approximately $1.2 million from our subsurface lease, a land sale of approximately 3.1 acres, which generated revenue of $391,500, and a dirt excavation agreement, which generated revenue of approximately $123,000.
Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was approximately $723,000, compared to approximately $252,000 in the same period in 2013. Our results in the second quarter of 2014 benefited from approximately $1.4 million, or 29%, in increased revenues and a decrease in operating expenses of approximately $39,000, or 1%. Included in the net decrease of approximately $39,000 were approximately $102,000, of increased direct costs of revenues for our income properties, which was primarily due to approximately $101,000 of costs related to our acquisition of the property leased to Lowes in Katy, Texas, increased depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $150,000 reflecting our larger income property portfolio, and increased general and administrative expenses of approximately $285,000. These increases were offset by the approximate $616,000 impairment charge in the second quarter of 2013, related to approximately 6.23 acres of land that were sold in December 2013. The 23% increase in general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2014, as compared to the same period in 2013, was due primarily to an increase in stock compensation costs of approximately $154,000, due to our higher stock price and an accrual related to environmental monitoring of approximately $110,000. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, was $0.13 per share, compared to $0.04 per share during the same period in 2013, an increase of $0.09 per share or 225%.
Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was approximately $2.2 million, as compared to approximately $589,000 in the same period in 2013. Our results in the first six months of 2014 benefited from approximately $3.7 million, or 38%, in increased revenues and a decrease in operating expenses of approximately $86,000, or 1%. Included in the net decrease of approximately $86,000 was approximately $213,000 of increased direct costs of revenues for our income properties, of which approximately $101,000 was related to our acquisition of the property in Katy, Texas, increased depreciation and amortization of approximately $223,000 reflecting our larger income property portfolio, and increased general administrative expenses of approximately $41,000. These increases were offset by the approximate $616,000 impairment charge in the second quarter of 2013 related to approximately 6.23 acres of land that were sold in December 2013. The approximate 1% increase in general and administrative expenses is comprised primarily of an accrual related to environmental monitoring of approximately $110,000, offset by a net reduction in other costs including our legal expenses, insurance, and a decrease in payroll costs related to a one-time separation payment of approximately $103,000 incurred during the first quarter of 2013. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2014, was $0.39 per share, as compared to $0.10 per share during the same period in 2013, an increase of $0.29 per share or 290%.
CEO and CFO Comments on Operating Results
Mark E. Patten, senior vice president and chief financial officer, stated, “We're pleased with our operating results and our increasing cash flows for the quarter and year-to-date which allowed us to utilize cash from operations to complete the two buildings comprising the Williamson Business Park flex-office space and invest in delivering the pad site for the sale of 76 acres intended for the development of a distribution center.” Mr. Patten continued, “We are nearing completion of the site work required under the contract conditions of the sale of the 76 acres which we expect such work and the closing of the transaction to occur in the third quarter of 2014.” Mr. Patten also noted, “We had an active quarter including continued investments in our key operating segments and solid quarter and year-to-date earnings, all from continuing operations, including the achievement of positive net operating income in our golf operations, despite the impact of a much heavier level of rain fall versus last year.”
John P. Albright, president and chief executive officer, stated, “The Daytona real estate market continues to strengthen with increased commercial activity as evidenced by our recent office leasing activity as well as our increased revenues from impact fees. The Volusia County housing permits are up 25% for the first six months of the year versus 2013 and up 95% for the same period versus 2012. We continue to have substantive discussions regarding land inquires which may or may not result in transactions. On the investment side, we continue to find good investment opportunities balanced between long term investments in strong employment growth markets such as the Lowe's in Katy, Texas and shorter term investments such as the loan on a Sarasota retail center. We are also delighted to invest opportunistically where we see value such as the purchase of the store leased to American Signature, Inc., located in the same center as our Barnes & Noble and across the street from the 100,000 seat Daytona International Speedway, which is undergoing a $400 million renovation scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2016.”
Mr. Albright also noted, “We are also continuing to take advantage of the strong investor environment to recycle our weaker assets such as vacant leased retail assets. Three of these properties are under contract but there can be no assurances that the pending transaction will close.” Mr. Albright further noted, “We are excited about our recent entitlement of approximately 600 acres known as Bayberry II for approximately 1,000 residential units. This land was reacquired by the company in January 2014 through foreclosure. We intend to seek out quality developers and home builders to develop this community which is in the vicinity of our LPGA International Golf Club and adjacent to the sold out Bayberry residential community.”
