In the opinion of the Company, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with instructions for Form 10-Q, include all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) which are necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted. It is suggested that these condensed consolidated financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2020. The balance sheet as of December 31, 2020 was derived from audited consolidated financial statements as of that date. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
 
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of HMG/Courtland Properties, Inc. (the "Company" or “HMG”) and entities in which the Company owns a majority voting interest or controlling financial interest. All material transactions and balances with consolidated and unconsolidated entities have been eliminated in consolidation or as required under the equity method.
 
The Company reclassified certain amounts within its condensed consolidated balance sheet and statement of changes in stockholders’ equity to conform to current period presentation. The
reclassifications includes $54.1 million from undistributed gains from sales of properties, net of losses and $59.0 million from undistributed losses from operations to an accumulated deficit of $4.9 million as of June 30, 2020 and $54.1 million from undistributed gains from sales of properties, net of losses and $58.2 million from undistributed losses from operations to an accumulated deficit of $5.6 million as of December 31, 2020 These
reclassifications had no impact on the Company’s previously reported results of operations or cash flows.

2.
REVOCATION OF REIT STATUS AND LIQUIDATION
 
As previously reported in Form 8-K on June 14, 2021, management is considering revoking (the “Revocation”) the real estate investment trust (“REIT”) status of the Company, followed by the adoption of a plan of liquidation (the “Liquidation”) of the Company, subject to approval by the Board of Directors and majority vote of shareholders.  The purpose of this Revocation and Liquidation is to liquidate the Company’s operations/assets in an orderly manner based upon market conditions permitting reasonable exit values for its existing portfolios.  Because of the complexities associated with maintaining REIT status during this Liquidation and a two-year REIT liquidation constraint, if ultimately executed, the Company plans to revoke REIT status effective January 1, 2022, and undertake this Liquidation process over a multi-year period.

3.
NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
There are several new accounting pronouncements issued or proposed by the FASB.  Each of these pronouncements, as applicable, has been or will be adopted by the Company.  Management does not believe any of these accounting pronouncements has had or will have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial position, operating results, or cash flow.

INVESTMENT IN RESIDENTIAL REAL ESTATE PARTNERSHIP (FORT MYERS, FL)
 
Pursuant to the terms of a Construction and Mini Perm Loan Agreement ("Loan Agreement"), between
Murano At Three Oaks Associates LLC, a Florida limited liability company formed in September 2018 (the “Borrower” or “Murano”) which is 25% owned by HMG, and PNC Bank, National Association ("Lender"), Lender provided a construction loan to the Borrower for the principal sum of approximately $41.59 million (“Loan”). The proceeds of the Loan were used to finance the construction of multi-family residential apartments containing 318 units totaling approximately 312,000 net rentable square feet on a 17.5-acre site located in Fort Myers, Florida ("Project").  The Project site was purchased by the Borrower concurrently with the closing of the Loan. Total development costs for the Project were approximately $54.1 million, or $2 million less than originally projected.  The Borrower’s equity totals approximately $14.5 million. HMG’s share of the equity is 25%, or approximately $3.6 million.  As of June 30, 2021, the outstanding balance on the Loan was approximately $39.0 million.  The Project has been completed and a certificate of occupancy was obtained in March 2021.  The Project is approximately 70% leased.  For the six months ended June 30, 2021 Murano reported a net loss of $1.2 million including $88,000 income from operations, depreciation and amortization of $953,000 and $344,000 of interest expense.  HMG’s portion of the 2021 loss was $301,000.
 
As of June 30, 2021 the carrying value of this investment is approximately $3.2 million.
 
HMG and the other members (or affiliates thereof) of the Borrower ("Guarantors") entered into a Completion Guaranty ("Completion Guaranty") and a Guaranty and Suretyship Agreement ("Repayment Guaranty") (collectively, the “Guaranties”).  Under the Completion Guaranty, each Guarantor shall unconditionally guaranty, as a primary obligor, and become surety for the prompt payment and performance by Borrower of the “Guaranteed Obligations” (as defined).  Under the Repayment Guaranty, Guarantor unconditionally guarantees, as a primary obligor, and becomes surety for the prompt payment and performance of, as defined (i) all Interest Obligations, (ii) all Loan Document Obligations, (iii) all Expense Obligations, (iv) the Carrying Cost Obligations, (v) the Principal Amount, (vi) interest on each of the foregoing including, if applicable, interest at the Default Rate (as defined).  At all times prior to the First Reduction Date (as defined below), the Guarantors are collectively responsible for 30% of the Principal Obligations, (ii) at all times after the First Reduction Date, the Guarantors are collectively responsible for 15% of the Principal Obligations, and (iii) at all times after the Second Reduction Date, 0% of the Principal Obligations. First Reduction Date occurs upon satisfaction of the following conditions: (i) no Event of Default has occurred and is continuing; (ii) Completion of Construction has occurred; and (iii)  the Project has achieved a DSCR of not less than 1.25 to 1.00 for two (2) consecutive fiscal quarters.

(1)
liquidity shall not be less than $
2.5
million. Liquidity is defined as the sum of unencumbered, unrestricted cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities, and
(2)
net worth shall not be less than $

260 RIVER CORP. MONTPELIER, VERMONT
 
The Company’s property located in Montpelier Vermont has completed the required environmental remediation as previously disclosed.  Groundwater monitoring is ongoing and will continue on a long term (annually or biannually) until levels of contaminants reach acceptable levels .  The costs of such monitoring are expected to be less than $4,000 per year. The owners agreed with a local developer on a fixed fee of $500,000 to remediate the property, of which a balance of approximately $61,000 is owed and payable upon the property receiving a Certificate of Completion (COC) from the State of Vermont Agency of Natural Resources (“ANR”).  The COC provides certain liability protections for environmental contamination at the property under Vermont’s Brownfields Reuse and Environmental Liability Limitation Act program (“BRELLA”).  We are expecting to receive the COC sometime in 2021.
 
In August 2020, the existing owners of the property amended and restated the previously reported Pre-Development Agreement.  The Amended and Restated Pre-Development Agreement calls for the transfer of 50% of our interest in the property to the local developer which remediated the property and 10% to an unrelated real estate consultant which has assisted us in the process of remediating and developing the property.  The transfer of ownership will occur upon receipt of the COC and will result in the Company owning approximately 28% of the project thereafter.  Also, in August 2020, we entered into a lease agreement with an unrelated party which covers approximately 3.5 acres of land and existing improvements together with an expansion building of approximately 8,000 square feet. The term of the lease will commence on the earlier of: (a) 30 days after the date the project is substantially completed (as defined); or (b) the date that the tenant opens for business (the “Commencement Date”) and shall continue until the 10
th
anniversary of the Commencement Date.  The lease provides the tenant the option to renew or extend the lease for two consecutive renewal terms of five years each.  Average gross annual rent over the ten-year initial term is approximately $229,000.  Under the terms of the lease the tenant is responsible for real estate taxes, insurance, and maintenance (except for capital repairs and replacements, as defined).  The remainder of the property (approximately 2.5 acres) is subject to development limitations related to wetlands, the location of the Winooski River and institutional controls that have been or will be implemented to address contamination related to historical site operations.

On March 1, 2021 the project was completed, a certificate of occupancy was obtained, and the lease commenced upon tenant taking possession of the property.  The total costs of renovation and construction was approximately $2.5 million.  The Company’s portion of the total costs (28% ownership) is approximately $725,000 of which $395,000 has been paid as of June 30, 2021 and $331,000 is accrued as of June 30,2021, including $31,000 accrued in this quarter.  Loss from operations and estimated depreciation expense for the period ended June 30, 2021 was minimal.  
As of June 30, 2021 the carrying value of this investment is approximately $837,000.

INVESTMENTS IN MARKETABLE SECURITIES
 
Investments in marketable securities consist primarily of large capital corporate equity and debt securities in varying industries or issued by government agencies with readily determinable fair values. These securities are stated at market value, as determined by the most recent traded price of each security at the balance sheet date. Consistent with the Company's overall current investment objectives and activities its entire marketable securities portfolio is classified as trading.
Accordingly, all unrealized gains (losses) on this portfolio are recorded in income.  
Included in investments in marketable securities is approximately $1.0 million and $1.7 million in preferred stock of large capital real estate investment trusts (REITs) as of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively.

When evaluating the investments for other-than-temporary impairment, the Company reviews factors such as the length of time and extent to which fair value has been below cost basis, the financial condition of the issuer and any changes thereto, and the Company’s intent to sell, or whether it is more likely than not it will be required to sell, the investment before recovery of the investment’s amortized cost basis.
 
There were 0 Other-Than-Temporary Impairments (“OTTI”) adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2020, in accordance with ASC Topic 320-10-65, Recognition and Presentation of, we recognized a total of $315,000 OTTI valuation adjustments.  In the second quarter of 2020, we recorded two OTTI adjustments. One for $90,000 which was an additional write down relating to the investment in a small business investment company licensed by the Small Business Administration in which we invested $300,000 in 2007.  Distributions to date from this investment total $68,000. We wrote this investment down by $50,000 in the first quarter of 2020.  The carrying value of this investment is $92,000 after the OTTI adjustments.  The other OTTI adjustment in this quarter was for $175,000 for an investment in a $2 billion global fund which invests in oil exploration and production which we committed $500,000 in September 2015.  To date we have funded substantially all of our commitment and have received $205,000 in distributions from this investment.  The write down was based on net asset value reported by the sponsor and takes into consideration the current disruptions in the oil markets as a result of the economic fall out of the pandemic.

INCOME TAXES
 
The Company as a qualifying REIT distributes its taxable ordinary income to stockholders in conformity with requirements of the Internal Revenue Code and is not required to report deferred items due to its ability to distribute all taxable income. In addition, net operating losses can be carried forward to reduce future taxable income but cannot be carried back.
 
The Company’s 95%-owned taxable REIT subsidiary, CII, files a separate income tax return and its operations are not included in the REIT’s income tax return.
 
Distributed capital gains on sales of real estate as they relate to REIT activities are not subject to taxes; however, undistributed capital gains may be subject to corporate tax.
 
On December 11, 2020 the Company declared a dividend of $0.50 per share (100% return of capital) which was payable on January 12, 2021 to all shareholders of record as of December 29, 2020.
 
On December 13, 2019 the Company declared a dividend of $0.50 per share (100% return of capital) which was payable on January 13, 2020 to all shareholders of record as of December 30, 2019.
 
The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” ASC Topic 740 requires a Company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences of “temporary differences” by applying enacted statutory tax rates applicable to future years to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts and the tax basis of existing assets and liabilities. The effect on deferred income taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred taxes only pertain to CII. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company reported a net deferred tax liability of $142,000, and $107,000, respectively.  Deferred taxes are primarily a result of timing differences associated with the carrying value of the investment in affiliate (TGIF), other investments and investments in marketable securities.
 
The benefit from income taxes in the condensed consolidated statements of income consists of the following:

The Company follows the provisions of ASC Topic 740-10, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” which clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with ASC Topic 740 and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. This topic also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition.
 
Based on our evaluation, we have concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in our consolidated financial statements. Our evaluation was performed for the tax year ended December 31, 2020. The Company’s federal income tax returns since 2017 are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service, generally for a period of three years after the returns were filed.
   
We may from time to time be assessed interest or penalties by major tax jurisdictions, although any such assessments historically have been minimal and immaterial to our financial results. In the event we have received an assessment for interest and/or penalties, it has been classified in the condensed consolidated financial statements as general and administrative expense.

There were no OTTI valuation adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.  OTTI valuation adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, were $265,000 and $315,000, respectively.  This was the result of one investment written down in the first and second quarters of 2020.

EXPENSES
Operating expenses from rental and other properties for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with the same periods in 2020 increased by approximately $25,000 (or 153%) and $62,000 (or 183%), respectively.  This was primarily due to a loss on the sale of land held for development located in Hopkinton, Rhode Island.  The property had a carrying value of $209,000 and was sold for $200,000.  After commissions, legal and closing costs the loss was approximately $29,000.  The Company had attempted to develop this property for several years and was unsuccessful.  We also incurred approximately $23,000 in pre-construction costs not previously billed relating to our property in Montpelier, Vermont.

General and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with the same period in 2020 increased by approximately $18,000 (or 17%).  This was primarily due to increased corporate insurance costs of approximately $6,000, increased dues and subscriptions of $7,000 and $5,000 in placement fees relating to other investments.
 
Professional fees and expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, as compared with the same periods in 2020 increased by approximately $76,000 (or 363%) and $67,000 (or 58%).  This was primarily due to increased accounting and legal fees.
 
EFFECT OF INFLATION:
Inflation affects the costs of holding the Company's investments. Increased inflation would decrease the purchasing power of our mainly liquid investments.
 
LIQUIDITY, CAPITAL EXPENDITURE REQUIREMENTS AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
The Company's material commitments primarily consist of a note payable to the Company’s 49% owned affiliate, T.G.I.F. Texas, Inc. (“TGIF”) of $400,000 due on demand and contributions committed to other investments of approximately $1.0 million due upon demand. The funds necessary to meet these obligations are expected from the proceeds from the sales of investments, distributions from investments and available cash.
 
MATERIAL COMPONENTS OF CASH FLOWS
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, net cash used in operating activities was approximately $560,000, primarily consisting of operating expenses.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, net cash provided by investing activities was approximately $837,000. This consisted primarily of net proceeds from sales and redemptions of marketable securities of $1.23 million, distributions from other investments of $250,000, distribution from affiliate of $138,000 and proceeds from the sale of the land in Hopkinton, Rhode Island of $130,000 (we took back a first mortgage of $50,000 on the sale).  These sources of funds were partially offset by uses of cash consisting primarily of $464,000 in purchases of marketable securities and $437,000 of contributions to other investments.
 
For the six months ended June 30, 2021, net cash used in financing activities was approximately $624,000, consisting of $504,000 dividend paid and $250,000 principal payment on note due to affiliate, partially offset by proceeds from the exercise of stock options of $130,000.
