Note 2 - Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation 

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, the Operating Partnership, as well as the Operating Partnership’s wholly owned properties, each of which is held in a single member LLC and variable interest entities ("VIEs") in which the Company is considered the primary beneficiary. The accompanying unaudited financial statements and related notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial statements and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.  In managements opinion, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows have been made. The results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year or any future period. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 18, 2022.

 

Substantially all of the Company's asset are held by and all of its' operations are conducted through the Operating Partnership. The Company is the sole managing general partner of the Operating Partnership.  Noncontrolling investors in the Operating Partnership are included in Noncontrolling interest in the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements. See Note 7 "Noncontrolling Interest" for details.  The Operating Partnership is a variable interest entity (“VIE”) because the holders of limited partnership interests do not have substantive kick-out rights or participating rights. Furthermore, we are the primary beneficiary of the Operating Partnership because we have the obligation to absorb losses and the right to receive benefits from the Operating Partnership and the exclusive power to direct the activities of the Operating Partnership. As of  June 30, 2022 and  December 31, 2021, the assets and liabilities of the Company and the Operating Partnership are substantially the same, as the Company does not have any significant assets other than its investment in the Operating Partnership.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Management will adjust such estimates when facts and circumstances dictate. Such estimates include, but are not limited to, useful lives for depreciation of property, the fair value of property and in-place lease intangibles acquired, and the fair value of stock-based compensation. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior year balances have been reclassified to conform to our current year presentation.

 

Significant Accounting Policies
 

There have been no significant changes to our accounting polices included in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments — Credit Losses, which changes the impairment model for most financial assets and certain other instruments. For trade and other receivables, held-to-maturity debt securities, loans and other instruments, companies will be required to use a new forward-looking “expected loss” model that generally will result in the earlier recognition of allowances for losses. In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments — Credit Losses, which among other updates, clarifies that receivables arising from operating leases are not within the scope of this guidance and should be evaluated in accordance with Topic 842. This standard will be effective for the Company until  January 1, 2023. The Company does not anticipate this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements due to the limited nature of financial assets held by the Company subject to ASU 2016-13.
