Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The consolidated financial statements included in this Offering Circular have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern; however, the conditions discussed below raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company has retained earnings as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, of $0. Since our inception, the Company has financed its operations through debt and equity financing from various sources. The Company is dependent upon raising additional capital or seeking additional equity financing to fund our current operating plans for the foreseeable future. Failure to obtain sufficient equity financing and, ultimately, to achieve profitable operations and positive cash flows from operations could adversely affect our ability to achieve its business objectives and continue as a going concern. Further, there can be no assurance as to the availability or terms upon which the required financing and capital might be available.

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

NOTE 1:SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

GROUNDFLOOR Real Estate 1, LLC (the “Company”), a Georgia limited liability company formed on December 16, 2016. The Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GROUNDFLOOR Finance Inc. (“GROUNDFLOOR”), a Georgia corporation.

 

Description of Business

 

GROUNDFLOOR has developed an online investment platform designed to crowdsource financing for real estate development projects, which GROUNDFLOOR utilizes to provide investment opportunities to investors. With this online investment platform, investors are able to choose between multiple real estate development investment opportunities, and developers of the projects are able to obtain financing. GROUNDFLOOR believes this method of financing real estate has many advantages including reduced project origination and financing costs, lower interest rates for real estate development financing, and attractive returns for investors. GROUNDFLOOR will identify which loans it seeks to originate, and will sell limited recourse obligations (“LROs”) which correspond to those loans. GROUNDFLOOR’s primary business is the sale of LROs and the Company’s primary purpose is the servicing of loans which correspond to those LROs.

 

Basis of Accounting and Liquidity

 

The Company’s condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business.

 

Operations since inception have consisted primarily of organizing the Company. The accompanying condensed financial statements have been prepared on a basis which assumes that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has earned limited revenue since its inception. The ultimate success of the Company is dependent on management’s ability to develop and market its products and services at levels sufficient to generate operating revenues in excess of expenses. Management evaluated the condition of the Company and has determined that until such sales levels can be achieved, management will need to secure additional capital to continue to fund product development and sales and marketing.

 

Management intends to fund operations by capital obtained from GROUNDFLOOR. However, there are no assurances that the Company can be successful in obtaining the additional capital or such financing will be on terms favorable or acceptable to the Company or GROUNDFLOOR. These matters raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

 

The condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of uncertainties described in the condensed financial statements. In addition, the condensed financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets nor the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of Condensed Financial Statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the Condensed Financial Statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue primarily results from fees earned on the loans to the Developers (the “Loans”). Fees include “Loan servicing revenue” which are paid by the Developers.

GROUNDFLOOR REAL ESTATE 1, LLC

 

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

Effective for 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“Topic 606”). Topic 606 supersedes the revenue requirements in ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition. The Company has evaluated the impact of this accounting standard on its Consolidated Financial Statements and concluded that the Company’s contracts with customers continue to fall within the scope of existing guidance. Servicing fees, origination fees, net interest income, and gains and losses on sales of loans remain within the scope of ASC topic 310—Receivables or ASC topic 860—Transfers and Servicing. Consequently, there was no transition adjustment required on the accompanying financial statements for adopting Topic 606.

 

Loan Servicing Revenue

 

The loan servicing revenue is recognized by the Company, upon recovery, for costs incurred in servicing the Developer’s Loan, including managing payments to and from Developers and payments to Investors. The Company records loan servicing revenue as a component of revenue when collected.

 

Interest Income on Loans to Developers and Interest Expense on Limited Recourse Obligations

 

The Company recognizes “Interest income” on Loans and “Interest expense” on the corresponding LROs (if issued by GROUNDFLOOR Real Estate 1, LLC) using the accrual method based on the stated interest rate to the extent the Company believes it to be collectable. For the purposes of these Condensed Financial Statements, “Limited recourse obligations, net” refers to LROs. LROs are the Company’s currently registered securities.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents as of June 30, 2021 and 2020. From time to time, the Company could maintain cash deposits in excess of federally insured limits. The Company believes credit risk related to its cash and cash equivalents to be minimal.

 

Loans to Developers and Limited Recourse Obligations

 

“Loans to developers, net” and the corresponding “Limited recourse obligations, net”, used to fund the Loans are originally recorded at outstanding principal. The interest rate associated with a Loan is the same as the interest rate associated with the corresponding LROs.

 

The Company’s obligation to pay principal and interest on an LRO is equal to the pro rata portion of the total principal and interest payments collected from the corresponding Loan. The Company obtains a lien against the property being financed and attempts reasonable collection efforts upon the default of a Loan. The Company’s lien may be senior or junior to the Borrower’s other financing obligations. The Company is not responsible for repaying “Limited recourse obligations, net” associated with uncollectable “Loans to developers, net”. Amounts collected related to a Loan default are returned to the Investors based on their pro rata portion of the corresponding LROs, if applicable, less collection costs incurred by the Company.

 

The Loan and corresponding LROs are recorded on the Company’s Condensed Balance Sheets to “Loans to developers, net” and “Limited recourse obligations, net”, respectively, once the Loan has closed. Loans are considered closed after the promissory note for that Loan has been signed and the security interest has been perfected.

 

Nonaccrual and Past Due Loans

 

Accrual of interest on “Loans to developers, net” and corresponding “Limited recourse obligations, net” is discontinued when, in management’s opinion, the collection of the interest income appears doubtful. “Interest income” and “Interest expense” on the “Loans to developers, net” and the corresponding “Limited recourse obligations, net” are discontinued and placed on nonaccrual status at the time the Loan is 90 days delinquent unless the Loan is well secured and in process of collection. A Loan may also be placed on nonaccrual status when, in management’s judgment, the collection of the interest income appears doubtful based on the status of the underlying development project, even if the Loan is not yet 90 days delinquent. Loans may be returned to accrual status when all the principal and interest amounts contractually due are brought current and future payments are reasonably assured.

 

 F-6 

 

  

GROUNDFLOOR REAL ESTATE 1, LLC

 

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

The “Loans to developers, net” and corresponding “Limited recourse obligations, net” are charged off to the extent principal or interest is deemed uncollectible. All interest accrued but later charged off for “Loans to developers, net” and “Limited recourse obligations, net” is reversed against “Interest income” and the corresponding LROs recorded “Interest expense”.

 

Impaired Loans

 

Loans are considered impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable the Company will be unable to collect all amounts due in accordance with the original contractual terms of the loan agreements. Impaired loans include Loans on nonaccrual status. When determining if the Company will be unable to collect all principal and interest payments due in accordance with the contractual terms of the loan agreement, the Company considers the borrower’s capacity to pay, which includes such factors as the borrower’s current financial position, an analysis of global cash flow sufficient to pay all debt obligations and an evaluation of secondary sources of repayment, such as collateral value and guarantor support. The Company individually assesses for impairment all nonaccrual Loans and all Loans in fundamental default. If a Loan is deemed impaired, a specific valuation allowance is allocated, if necessary, so that the Loan is reported net, at the present value of estimated future cash flows using the Loan’s existing rate or at the fair value of collateral if repayment is expected solely from the collateral. Interest payments on impaired loans are typically applied to principal unless collectability of the principal amount is reasonably assured, in which case interest is recognized on a cash basis.

 

Allowance for Uncollectable Loans and Undeliverable Limited Recourse Obligations

 

Payments to holders of LROs, as applicable, depend on the payments received on the corresponding Loans; a reduction or increase of the expected future payments on Loans will decrease or increase the reserve for the associated LROs. The Company recognizes a reserve for uncollectable Loans and corresponding reserve for undeliverable LROs in an amount equal to the estimated probable losses net of recoveries. The allowance is based on management’s estimates and analysis of historical bad debt experience, existing economic conditions, current loan aging schedules, and expected future write-offs, as well as an assessment of specific, identifiable Developer accounts considered at risk or uncollectible. Expected losses and actual charge-offs on Loans are offset to the extent that the Loans are financed by LROs, as applicable, that effectively absorb the related Loan losses.

 

“Loans to developers, net” are presented net of a reserve for doubtful accounts of $470,425 and $419,942 as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. “Limited recourse obligations, net” are presented net of a reserve for doubtful accounts of $470,425 and $419,942 as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

 

Other Real Estate Owned

 

Foreclosed assets acquired through or in lieu of loan foreclosure are held for sale and are initially recorded at fair value less estimated cost to sell. Any write-down to fair value at the time of transfer to foreclosed assets is charged to the allowance for loan losses. Subsequent to foreclosure, valuations are periodically performed by management and the assets are carried at the lower of carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. Costs of improvements are capitalized up to the fair value of the property, whereas costs relating to holding foreclosed assets and subsequent adjustments to the value are charged to operations. 

 

Income Taxes

 

As a limited liability company, the Company is not a taxpaying entity for federal income tax purposes. Accordingly, its taxable income or losses are allocated to its member based on the provisions of the operating agreement and are included in the members’ income tax returns. The condensed financial statements, therefore, do not include a provision for income taxes. Similar provisions apply for state income tax purposes.

 

Management has assessed the effect of the guidance provided by U.S. GAAP on accounting for uncertainty in income taxes. Management has evaluated all tax positions that could have a significant effect on the condensed financial statements and determined the Company had no uncertain income tax positions at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

Notes to Condensed Financial Statements

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has evaluated the recent pronouncements issued since filing its annual audited Condensed Financial Statements for the six months ended June 30, 2021, and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company’s Condensed Financial Statements.

  

NOTE 2:LOANS TO DEVELOPERS, NET

 

The Company purchases notes that provide financing to borrowers for real estate-related loans. Real estate loans include loans for unoccupied single family or multifamily renovations costing between $20,000 and $2,000,000 over six months to a year.

 

The Company uses three performance states to better monitor the credit quality of outstanding loans. Outstanding loans are characterized as follows:

 

Current - This status indicates that no events of default have occurred, all payment obligations have been met or none are yet triggered.

 

Workout - This status indicates there has been one or more payment defaults on the Loan and the Company has negotiated a modification of the original terms that does not amount to a fundamental default.

 

Fundamental Default - This status indicates a Loan has defaulted and there is a chance the Company will not be able to collect 100% of the principal amount of the Loan by the extended payment date of the corresponding LROs. The Company has commenced a formal foreclosure process to secure the real estate property. 

 

GROUNDFLOOR uses a proprietary grading algorithm to assign one of seven letter grades, from A to G, to each Loan. The letter grade generally reflects the overall risk of the Loan, with A indicating less risk and G indicating higher risk.

 

The following table presents the carrying amount of “Loans to developers, net” by letter grade and performance state as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 20120 respectively:

Nonaccrual and Past Due Loans

 

A Loan is placed on nonaccrual status when, in management’s judgment, the collection of the interest income appears doubtful. “Interest receivable on loans to developers” that has been accrued and is subsequently determined to have doubtful collectability is charged to “Interest income” and the corresponding “Accrued interest on limited recourse obligations” that has been accrued and is subsequently determined to have doubtful collectability is charged to “Interest expense”. Interest income on Loans that are classified as nonaccrual is subsequently applied to principal until the Loans are returned to accrual status. Loans are returned to accrual status when all the principal and interest amounts contractually due are brought current and future payments are reasonably assured. Past due Loans are loans whose principal or interest is past due 30 days or more. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company placed Loans of $4,659,240 and $559,000 recorded to “Loans to developers, net” on nonaccrual status, respectively.

 

The following table presents an analysis of past due Loans as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020:

 

  Carrying Amount  Allowance for Loan Losses  Total 
Aging schedule:

NOTE 3:OTHER REAL ESTATE OWNED

 

“Other real estate owned” in the Company’s Condensed Balance Sheet was $0 and $0 at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

  

NOTE 4:RELATED PARTY ARRANGEMENTS

 

GROUNDFLOOR Finance Inc.

 

GROUNDFLOOR will receive fees and compensation in connection with the Company’s Offering, and the servicing and sale of the Company’s LROs.

 

The Company will also reimburse GROUNDFLOOR for actual expenses incurred on behalf of the Company in connection with the servicing of a Loan, to the extent not reimbursed by the borrower. The Company will reimburse GROUNDFLOOR for out-of-pocket expenses paid to third parties in connection with providing services to the Company. This does not include GROUNDFLOOR’s overhead, employee costs borne by GROUNDFLOOR, utilities or technology costs. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, GROUNDFLOOR incurred $0 and $0 of costs on the Company’s behalf, respectively. No such costs were due and payable to GROUNDFLOOR as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

 

GROUNDFLOOR GA Holdings LLC

 

GROUNDFLOOR GA Holdings LLC may close and fund a Loan prior to it being acquired by the Company. The ability to warehouse Loans allows us the flexibility to deploy the offering proceeds as funds are raised. The Company then will acquire such LROs at a price equal to the fair market value of the Loan (including reimbursements for servicing fees and accrued interest, if any), so there is no mark-up (or mark-down) at the time of purchase. 

  

NOTE 5:SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through August 30, 2020, the date the Condensed Financial Statements were available to be issued, and determined that there have been no events that have occurred that would require adjustments to our disclosures in the Condensed Financial Statements.
