PART III — NARRATIVE

State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 2, 2020 by CBL & Associates Properties, Inc. together with its majority owned subsidiary, CBL & Associates Limited Partnership (collectively, the “Company”), the Company, together with certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries, commenced the filing of voluntary petitions (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) under Chapter 11 of title 11 of the United States Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”) beginning on November 1, 2020.  The Company has filed a series of motions with the Bankruptcy Court that, as granted, enable the Company to maintain its operations in the ordinary course of business.

The filing of the Chapter 11 Cases came at the same time during which the Company’s management was working to complete the preparation of financial statements and related disclosures required to be included in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 (the “Quarterly Report”).  Accordingly, in consideration of the significant amount of time required of management to support matters related to the Chapter 11 Cases and the additional time required by management to make appropriate revisions to the financial statements and related disclosures included in the Quarterly Report to reflect the commencement of the Chapter 11 Cases, the Company was unable to file such Quarterly Report by the prescribed date without unreasonable effort or expense.

In accordance with Rule 12b-25 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the Company intends to file the Quarterly Report no later than November 16, 2020.

(2)

Have all other periodic reports required under Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the Investment Company Act of 1940 during the preceding 12 months or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to file such report(s) been filed? If answer is no, identify report(s).      Yes      No

 

 

(3)

Is it anticipated that any significant change in results of operations from the corresponding period for the last fiscal year will be reflected by the earnings statements to be included in the subject report or portion thereof?      Yes      No

If so, attach an explanation of the anticipated change, both narratively and quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate of the results cannot be made.

Based on preliminary financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 compared with the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company anticipates reporting the following significant changes:


 

Total revenues decreased approximately $57.4 million and $152.0 million, respectively, due to (i) store closures and rent concessions that were in effect prior to the COVID-19 pandemic for tenants with high occupancy cost levels and tenants that closed in 2019 due to bankruptcy, (ii) store closures and rent concessions involving tenants that are in bankruptcy or are struggling financially due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and (iii) the deconsolidation of three outlet centers.

 

Total property operating expenses (operating expenses, real estate taxes and maintenance and repair expenses) decreased approximately $10.3 million and $32.8 million, respectively, as a result of the temporary closure of the Company’s portfolio as a result of government mandates, aggressive actions to reduce costs and the deconsolidation of three outlet centers.

 

Total general and administrative expenses increased approximately $13.0 million and $13.2 million, respectively, primarily due to costs associated with efforts to restructure the Company’s corporate-level debt.

 

Loss on impairment decreased approximately $135.6 million and $55.2 million, respectively, due to the number of properties impaired and the timing of those impairments.

 

Litigation settlement decreased approximately $20.2 million and $67.9 million, respectively, due to the timing of payments and other permissible adjustments pursuant to the settlement agreement.

 

Gain on extinguishment of debt increased (decreased) approximately $15.4 million and $(56.3) million, respectively, due to the timing of when properties were conveyed to lenders or disposed of to settle the related debt secured by the property.

 

Net loss attributable to common shareholders (decreased) increased approximately $(36.0) million and $93.7 million, respectively.

The financial information for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 presented herein is preliminary and subject to change pending the filing of the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2020.

Statements in this Form 12b-25 that relate to future results and events are not facts and constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company’s current expectations, estimates and assumptions and, as such, involve certain risks and uncertainties. The ability of the Company to predict results or the actual effects of its plans and strategies is subject to inherent uncertainty. Actual results and events in future periods may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements because of a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors. All statements other than statements of historical fact, including statements containing the words “anticipates,” “intends,” “believes,” “expects,” “will,” and similar expressions, are statements that could be deemed to be forward-looking statements. In addition, the forward-looking statements represent the Company’s views as of the date as of which they were made. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments may cause its views to change. However, although the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, it specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s views as of any date subsequent to the date hereof. Additional factors that may cause results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements are set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, as amended, and in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for each interim period in 2020 under the headings “Risk Factors” and “Forward-Looking Statements”.
