Item 1.Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in forward-looking statements for many reasons, including the risks described elsewhere in this Semiannual Filing.

 

The following discussion and analysis are based on, and should be read in conjunction with, our unaudited financial statements and notes thereto as of June 30, 2021.

 

Overview

 

Gateway Garage Partners LLC (the “Company”) was formed on May 12, 2020 and has conducted no operations other than those related to its organization, the completion of the offering (the “Offering”) of its units of limited liability company interest (the “Units”) and the use of the proceeds of the Offering to acquire a 10% interest (the “Interest”) in 181 High Street LLC (“OpCo”).

 

Operating Results

 

The Company issued 4,000 Units in the Offering for net proceeds of $1,000,000. The Offering was closed on March 8, 2021 and the Interest was acquired on the same date.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company’s sole source of revenue is distributions received from OpCo relating to the Interest. As of August 31, 2021, OpCo had not paid any distributions on the Interest. OpCo’s mortgage loan contains certain financial covenants, including the requirement that OpCo maintain a minimum debt service coverage ratio of not less than 1.25:1 prior to any distributions and not less than 1.10:1 following any distribution. Compliance with this covenant is tested annually, and as of December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2021, OpCo was in compliance with the pre-distribution ratio, but any distribution in excess of a nominal amount per Unit would have resulted in a breach of the post-distribution ratio. As the debt service coverage ratio is calculated based largely on OpCo’s net income, the timing and amount of any distributions by OpCo to the Company will be dependent upon increased levels of OpCo’s net income.

 

The Company’s liquidity requirements consist primarily of funds required to pay an annual platform fee to LEX Markets LLC in an amount equal to 1% of the value of the public float of the Units. The value of the public float is based on the average price per Unit for the last 90 days of the immediately preceding calendar year or the Offering price ($250.00 per Unit) for 2021. The platform fee accrues at an annualized rate equal to the secured overnight financing rate (SOFR) plus 3%, if the Company is unable to make the quarterly payment. As of June 30, 2021, the Company had not paid the platform fee.

 

Investor Call

 

The Company will host an investor call on October 8, 2021 at noon Eastern Time, which will be open for the general public to hear. The Company will be issuing a press release and filing a Form 1-U with the Securities and Exchange Commission setting forth the details of the call.

NOTE 1FORMATION AND ORGANIZATION

 

Gateway Garage Partners LLC (the “Company”) was formed on May 12, 2020 as a Delaware Limited Liability Company and is a partnership for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The Company was organized for the sole purpose of acquiring a membership interest in 181 High Street LLC, a Maine limited liability company (“OpCo”). OpCo’s sole asset is a 208,375 square foot parking garage containing approximately 600 parking spaces located at 181 High Street, Portland, Maine, (the “Property”). The Company is managed by Noyack Medical Partners LLC (the “Manager”), which is also the manager of OpCo.

 

The Company received its initial capital contribution on May 21, 2020.

 

The Company filed an offering statement on February 16, 2021 on Form 1-A with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) with respect to an offering (the “Offering”) of limited liability company units (“Units”) for an initial offering price of $250.00 per Unit. The maximum of $1,000,000 of Units was sold to the public in the initial offering on March 8, 2021. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had issued one Unit to the Manager, for a purchase price of $100. The Company will remain in existence until liquidated in accordance with the terms of its Limited Liability Company Agreement (the “Operating Agreement”).

 

The Offering qualified as a “Tier 2” offering pursuant to Regulation A promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act.

 

The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31st.

 

NOTE 2SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying financial statements and related notes of the Company have been prepared on the accrual basis of accounting and conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and Article 8 of Regulation S-X of the rules and regulations of the SEC.

NOTE 2SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Estimates

 

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.

 

Cash

 

Cash may at times exceed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation deposit insurance limit of $250,000 per institution. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash.

 

Investment

 

The Company accounts for equity securities without readily determinable fair value at cost less impairments, if any, plus or minus changes resulting from observable price changes in orderly transactions for identical or similar securities. The company purchased a 10% interest in OpCo that does not have a readily determinable fair value. Dividends received from OpCo will be recognized as dividend income.

 

Organizational and Offering Costs

 

Organizational and offering costs of the Company were paid by LEX Markets Corp., which will be reimbursed by SDDco Brokerage Advisors LLC (the “Placement Agents”) up to the extent of the 4% placement fee received. LEX Markets Corp. is responsible for any expenses in excess of the total placement fee. These organizational and offering costs include all expenses to be paid by the Company in connection with the formation of the Company and the qualification of the Offering. The offering expenses also includes the distribution of Units, including, without limitation, expenses for printing, and amending offering statements or supplementing offering circulars, mailing and distributing costs, telephones, internet and other telecommunications costs, charges of experts and fees, expenses and taxes related to the filing and qualification of the sale of shares under U.S. federal and state laws, including taxes and fees and accountants’ and attorneys’ fees. OpCo paid the Placement Agents a fee equal to 4% of the gross proceeds of the Units sold in the Offering.

NOTE 2SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Organizational and Offering Costs (Continued)

 

The Offering is being made on a “best efforts” basis, which means that no one is committed to purchasing any shares in the Offering. OpCo has engaged the Placement Agents to act as the exclusive placement agent in connection with the Offering. The Placement Agents are not obligated to purchase any shares or sell a specific number of Units, but will use its commercially reasonable “best efforts” to solicit purchases of the Units.

 

Trading Market

 

In connection with the Offering, the Company admitted its Units to trading on an “alternative trading system” or, ATS, maintained by LEX Markets Corp. (the “Platform”). However, there can be no assurance that an active trading market for the Units will be established or, if established, maintained. As a result, the liquidity of the Units may be limited.

 

LEX Markets Corp. and its subsidiary broker dealer LEX Markets LLC through the Platform located at www.LEXMarkets.com seek to provide an opportunity to investors to become equity holders in companies that own real estate properties. Through the Platform, investors can browse and screen potential property investments, view details of an investment and indicate interests in Units online. The Offering is being conducted through the facilities of the Platform, whereby investors will receive, review, execute and deliver subscription agreements electronically. The Company will pay LEX Markets an annual platform fee equal to 1.0% of the value of the public float of Units, based on the average price per share over the last 90 calendar days of the immediately preceding calendar year (the “Platform Fee”). The Platform Fee is paid out of Company dividends, and if no dividends are declared, interest will accrue at the secured overnight financing rate (“SOFR”) plus 3%, compounded quarterly, and paid out of subsequent dividends. This may cause a liability to the Company. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company incurred Platform Fees of $3,158, which has been accrued with interest of $20 as of June 30, 2021.

 

Taxable Income

 

Section 7704 of the Internal Revenue Code provides that publicly traded partnerships will, as a general rule, be taxed as corporations. However, an exception, referred to as the “Qualifying Income Exception,” exists with respect to publicly traded partnerships of which 90% or more of the gross income for every taxable year consists of “qualifying income.” Qualifying income includes dividends, interest (other than from a financial business), real property rents, gain from the sale of real property and gains from the sale or other disposition of capital assets held for the production of income that otherwise constitutes qualifying income.

Taxable Income (Continued)

 

The Company intends to operate such that it will meet the Qualifying Income Exception in each taxable year and expects not to pay any U.S. federal income tax.

 

NOTE 3 RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

Ownership

 

As of December 31, 2020, C.J. Follini was the sole member of each of OpCo and the Manager. On March 8, 2021, the Company issued 4,000 common units for net proceeds of $1,000,000, which has been used to acquire a 10% interest in OpCo.

 

Management

 

The Company is organized as a limited liability company that does not have a board of directors. The Manager performs the function of a board of directors. Pursuant to the Operating Agreement, the Manager will have complete and exclusive discretion in the management and control of the Company’s affairs and business, subject to the requirement to obtain consent for certain actions, and shall possess all powers necessary, convenient or appropriate to carrying out the Company’s purposes and business, including doing all things and taking all actions necessary to carry out the terms and provisions of each of the foregoing agreements.

 

The Manager will not receive any compensation for its services as the managing member of the Company. However, upon successful closing of the Offering, OpCo entered into an agreement with the Manager to perform asset management duties for OpCo (the “OpCo Manager”). OpCo pays the OpCo Manager an asset management fee equal to 5.0% of the annual gross income of OpCo, as provided, less annual fees payable on all service contracts including the property manager of OpCo.

 

NOTE 4SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through September 29, 2021, the date the financial statements were available to be issued.

NOTE 1ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

181 High Street LLC (the “Company”) was formed on February 15, 2008 as a Maine limited liability company. The term of the Company shall continue indefinitely, unless the Company is earlier dissolved by the occurrence of events more fully described in the agreement.

 

The purpose of the Company is to acquire and operate a garage located at 181 High Street, Portland Maine (the “Property”). The Property is a five-story parking garage containing approximately 600 parking spaces.

 

On March 8, 2021, Gateway Garage Partners LLC acquired a 10% interest in the Company for a contribution of $1,000,000. Income, losses and distributions from the Company are allocated to the members pro rata.

 

A member of a limited liability company is not liable for debts, obligations, or other liabilities of the limited liability company by reason of being such a member.

 

The Company’s operations and financial performance are subject to certain business risks and uncertainties that include changes in economic conditions, rapid changes in the real estate market, and competition for parking garages in the local marketplace, among others.

 

NOTE 2SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Application of these estimates and assumptions requires the exercise of judgment as to future uncertainties and, as a result, actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and Restricted Cash

 

At various times during the year, the Company has maintained cash balances in excess of federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash.

 

Restricted cash consists of monies restricted for the benefit of the Company’s lender under the terms of the debt agreement. Such reserves are for capital expenditures and real estate taxes. In addition, certain cash from the operation of the Property must be directed to accounts controlled by the lender.

The following table provides a reconciliation of cash and restricted cash within the balance sheets to the sum of the corresponding amounts within the statements of cash flows reported:

 

  2021  2020 
As of January 1,        
Cash $43,439  $123,674 
Restricted cash  315,959   84,829

Restricted cash  120,669   131,345 
Cash and restricted cash $242,267  $157,351 

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Management provides for probable uncollectible amounts through a charge to earnings and a credit to an allowance for doubtful accounts based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Balances that are still outstanding after management has used reasonable collection efforts are written-off through a charge to the allowance and a credit to accounts receivable. At June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company considers accounts receivable to be fully collectible.

 

Accounting for Real Estate

 

Real estate is recognized at cost less accumulated depreciation. Betterments, major renovations and certain costs directly related to the improvement of real estate are capitalized. Maintenance and repair expenses are charged to expense as incurred.

 

Depreciation of an asset begins when it is available for use and is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. Range of useful lives for depreciable assets are as follows:

 

Category  Term 
Building  39 years 
Building improvements  7 - 15 years

The Company reviews its owned real estate for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. If impairment indicators are present, the evaluation may include estimating and reviewing anticipated future undiscounted cash flows to be derived from the asset. Estimating future cash flows is highly subjective and includes an evaluation of factors such as the anticipated cash flows from the Property, which may include parking rental income from current leases in-place and projected future leases, estimated capital expenditures, and an estimate of proceeds to be realized upon sale of the Property. If such cash flows are less than the asset’s net carrying value, an impairment charge is recognized to earnings to the extent by which the asset’s carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value. The Company’s estimates could differ materially from actual results. The Company did not recognize any impairment losses on long lived assets during the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020.

 

Deferred Costs

 

The Company defers costs incurred associated with the issuance of its debt obligations. Deferred financing costs are presented as deductions from the carrying value of the related debt obligation in the balance sheets and are amortized as a component of interest expense using the straight-line method, which approximates the effective interest method, over the terms of the respective financing agreements.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company’s revenues are primarily derived from parking rental income, including long-term leases, monthly rentals, and transient customers, which fall under the scope of Leases (Topic 840). The Company recognizes the effects of any scheduled rent increases, rent abatements and prepayments on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. This requires that parking rental income be recognized in equal annual amounts over the term of the lease. Deferred parking receivable and deferred parking rental income represent the cumulative effect of straight-lining leases and are computed as the difference between income accrued on a straight-line basis and contractual parking rental payments.

 

Advertising

 

Advertising and promotion costs are expensed as incurred. Total advertising and promotion expense for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were $778 and $379, respectively, and are recognized as a component of other operating expenses on the statements of operations.

Offering Costs

 

Costs incurred in connection with raising capital are recorded as reductions of the related equity proceeds. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company recorded $40,000 as a reduction of contributions which represents a placement fee equal to 4% of gross proceeds.

 

Income Taxes

 

No provision or benefit for income tax has been included in these financial statements because taxable income or loss passes through to, and is reportable by, the member.

 

The tax positions of the Company are assessed to determine whether a tax position is more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. For tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not threshold, the tax amount recognized in the financial statements is reduced by the largest benefit with a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant taxing authority. The Company has assessed the federal and state tax positions and has concluded that there are no material uncertain tax liabilities to be recognized or disclosed.

 

New Accounting Pronouncement

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (the “FASB”) issued ASU 2016-02, as amended, Leases (Topic 842). Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02 requires all lessees to record a lease liability at lease inception, with a corresponding right of use asset, except for short-term leases. Lessor accounting will not be fundamentally changed. Additionally, ASU 2016-02 requires that the Company capitalize, as initial direct costs, only those costs that are incurred due to the execution of a lease. ASU 2016-02 is effective for the Company’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2022. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of Topic 842 on its financial statements.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain amounts from the prior year financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

NOTE 5NOTE PAYABLE (Continued)

 

During April 2020, the Company received loan proceeds in the amount of $54,700 under the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). The PPP was established as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”), which provides for loans to qualifying businesses for amounts up to 2.5 times of the average monthly payroll expenses of the qualifying business. The loans and accrued interest may be forgivable to the extent the Company uses the loan proceeds for eligible purposes, including payroll, benefits, rent and utilities, and maintains its payroll levels. The amount of loan forgiveness may be reduced if the borrower terminates employees or reduces salaries during the eligible period. The unforgiven portion of the PPP loan is payable over two years at an interest rate of 1%, with a deferral of payments until a forgiveness application has been accepted and reviewed by the Small Business Administration (“SBA”), and the SBA has provided the lender with the loan forgiveness amount or, if the borrower does not apply for forgiveness, ten months after the end of the eligible period. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 the Company incurred interest expense of approximately $193 and $104, respectively. As of June 30, 2021 there was an outstanding balance on the PPP note payable of $54,700. On August 2, 2021, the entire loan balance along with the accrued interest expense was forgiven.

The extent of the impact of the coronavirus (“COVID-19”) outbreak on the operational and financial performance of the Company’s parking garage will depend on future developments, including the duration of the outbreak and the impact of COVID-19 on the financial markets and the overall economy, all of which are still highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.
