“Projected Assets, Liabilities & Revenue: If the preceding targets are met for the Corporation, by the end of the year 2021, we project: (a) total debt, including mortgages, should be less than $130 million; (b) total real estate portfolio should be valued at no less than $170 million; (c) gross revenue for the year should be a minimum of approximately $9.1 million; all subject to unforeseeable market changes or events.
“OER & NOI Targets: (a) In consideration of the management’s recommendations, the Corporation shall target an operating expense ratio of no more than 80% for the year 2021; (b) use the projected 80% OER in our forecasts, to remain conservative; (c) which means, if the Corporation targets a minimum gross revenue of $9.1 million for year 2021, the management will target a net operating income of approximately $1.82 million for year 2021.
ADFS CEO, Gary Sidorsky stated that additional information on the value of the investments, the respective commercial mortgages, and projected returns will be available after updated inspections, assessments, and appraisals of the targeted real estate investments. According to the CEO, “the Corporation now needs to focus on achieving the following: consolidate and verify shareholder listings; produce an updated audited financial report; secure partnerships to further our market penetration strategies; secure real estate leases, purchases, and subleases to ensure the Corporation has predictable cashflow; fund the Capital Reserve and Brokerage Accounts to improve the liquidity of the Corporation; increase our asset-base to improve the net-worth and valuations of the Corporation; and make the Corporation more attractive to long-term investors.”
In specific reference to how ADFS can achieve its fundraising and liquidity goals without diluting shareholder equity, Mr. Sidorsky noted that “when a stock is dramatically undervalued, the issuing company can repurchase some of its shares at this reduced price and then re-issue them once the market has corrected, thereby increasing its equity capital without issuing any additional shares or further diluting company ownership. So, small public companies, like ours, typically use stock buyback programs for company consolidation, equity value increase, and to look more financially attractive.”
“There’s no doubt that if we initiated a ‘Stock Buyback Program’ under our Strategic Investments Operation, it would positively impact the Corporation’s consolidation, undervaluation, and key financial ratios; as long as we do not finance the Program with interest bearing debt, which can strain cash flow. In such a case we could continue buying back for as long as ADFS’ net income or market share continues expanding.”
The Treasurer, Osita Iroku has also added an announcement of his retirement from the company, saying, “We achieved all we set out to achieve this year, and now it’s time to hand over to a new administrative team to take ADFS to the next level.” The company is set to announce the appointment of new executives and officers later this month, although Gary Sidorsky is scheduled to stay on as CEO.
