NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Unaudited)

 

Note A – Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited financial statements of National Property Investors 6 (the "Partnership" or "Registrant") have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8-03 of Regulation S-X.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of NPI Equity Investments, Inc. ("NPI Equity" or the "Managing General Partner"), all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring items) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012. The balance sheet at December 31, 2011 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in the Partnership's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. The Managing General Partner is an affiliate of Apartment Investment and Management Company ("Aimco"), a publicly traded real estate investment trust.

 

At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Partnership had outstanding 109,560 units of limited partnership interest.

 

The Partnership’s management evaluated subsequent events through the time this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q was filed.

 

Note B - Transactions with Affiliated Parties

 

The Partnership has no employees and depends on the Managing General Partner and its affiliates for the management and administration of all Partnership activities. The Partnership Agreement provides for payments to affiliates for services and as reimbursement of certain expenses incurred by affiliates on behalf of the Partnership. 

 

Affiliates of the Managing General Partner receive 5% of gross receipts from the Partnership's property as compensation for providing property management services. The Partnership paid to such affiliates approximately $175,000 and $171,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, which are included in operating expenses.

 

Affiliates of the Managing General Partner charged the Partnership for reimbursement of accountable administrative expenses amounting to approximately $110,000 and $128,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, which is included in general and administrative expenses and investment property.  The portion of these reimbursements included in investment property for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 are construction management services provided by an affiliate of the Managing General Partner of approximately $74,000 and $82,000, respectively.  At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, approximately $317,000 and $275,000, respectively, of reimbursements were due to the Managing General Partner and are included in due to affiliates.

 

For services relating to the administration of the Partnership and operation of the Partnership's property, the Managing General Partner is entitled to receive payment for non-accountable expenses up to a maximum of $150,000 per year, based upon the number of Partnership units sold, subject to certain limitations. No such reimbursements were made during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 or 2011.

 

As compensation for services rendered in managing the Partnership, the Managing General Partner is entitled to receive Partnership management fees in conjunction with distributions of cash from operations, subject to certain limitations. No such Partnership management fees were earned or paid during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 or 2011.

 

The Partnership may receive advances of funds from AIMCO Properties, L.P., an affiliate of the Managing General Partner and the holder of a majority of the beneficial interest of the Partnership. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, AIMCO Properties, L.P. advanced the Partnership approximately $655,000 to fund operations at the Partnership and real estate taxes and operations at the Partnership’s investment property. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, AIMCO Properties, L.P. advanced the Partnership approximately $606,000 to fund real estate taxes and operations at the Partnership’s investment property. The advances bear interest at the prime rate plus 2% (5.25% at September 30, 2012) per annum. Interest expense was approximately $325,000 and $275,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Partnership paid approximately $95,000 of accrued interest. There were no such payments during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the total advances and accrued interest owed to AIMCO Properties, L.P. were approximately $8,924,000 and $7,944,000, respectively, and are included in due to affiliates. The Partnership may receive additional advances of funds from AIMCO Properties, L.P. although AIMCO Properties, L.P. is not obligated to provide such advances.  For more information on AIMCO Properties, L.P., including copies of its audited balance sheet, please see its reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Upon the sale of the Partnership’s property, NPI Equity will be entitled to an Incentive Compensation Fee equal to 3% of the difference between the sales price of the property and the appraised value for such property at February 1, 1992. Payment of the Incentive Compensation Fee is subordinated to the receipt by the limited partners, of: (a) distributions from capital transaction proceeds of an amount equal to their appraised investment in the Partnership at February 1, 1992, and (b) distributions from all sources (capital transactions as well as cash flow) of an amount equal to six percent (6%) per annum cumulative, non-compounded, on their appraised investment in the Partnership at February 1, 1992. Prior to 2011, these preferences were met.

 

The Partnership insures its property up to certain limits through coverage provided by Aimco which is generally self-insured for a portion of losses and liabilities related to workers’ compensation, property casualty, general liability, and vehicle liability.  The Partnership insures its property above the Aimco limits through insurance policies obtained by Aimco from insurers unaffiliated with the Managing General Partner.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Partnership was charged by Aimco and its affiliates approximately $42,000 for hazard insurance coverage and fees associated with policy claims administration. Additional charges will be incurred by the Partnership during 2012 as other insurance policies renew later in the year. The Partnership was charged by Aimco and its affiliates approximately $59,000 for insurance coverage and fees associated with policy claims administration during the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

Note C – Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 825, “Financial Instruments”, requires disclosure of fair value information about financial instruments, whether or not recognized in the balance sheet, for which it is practicable to estimate fair value. Fair value is defined as the amount at which the instruments could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced or liquidation sale. The Partnership is required to classify these fair value measurements into one of three categories, based on the nature of the inputs used in the fair value measurement.  Level 1 of the hierarchy includes fair value measurements based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities the Partnership can access at the measurement date. Level 2 includes fair value measurements based on inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.  Level 3 includes fair value measurements based on unobservable inputs.  The classification of fair value measurements is subjective and generally accepted accounting principles requires the Partnership to disclose more detailed information regarding those fair value measurements classified within the lower levels of the hierarchy.  The Partnership believes that the carrying amount of its financial instruments (except for mortgage notes payable) approximates their fair value due to the short-term maturity of these instruments. The Partnership estimates the fair value of its mortgage notes payable by discounting future cash flows using a discount rate commensurate with that currently believed to be available to the Partnership for similar term, mortgage notes payable. The Partnership has classified this fair value measurement within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy. At September 30, 2012, the fair value of the Partnership's mortgage notes payable at the Partnership's incremental borrowing rate was approximately $26,784,000.

 

Note D – Investment Property

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Partnership retired and wrote-off personal property no longer being used that had a cost basis of approximately $212,000 and accumulated depreciation of approximately $212,000.

 

Note E – Contingencies

 

The Partnership is unaware of any pending or outstanding litigation matters involving it or its investment property that are not of a routine nature arising in the ordinary course of business.

 

Various Federal, state and local laws subject property owners or operators to liability for management, and the costs of removal or remediation, of certain potentially hazardous materials present on a property, including lead-based paint, asbestos, polychlorinated biphenyls, petroleum-based fuels, and other miscellaneous materials. Such laws often impose liability without regard to whether the owner or operator knew of, or was responsible for, the release or presence of such materials. The presence of, or the failure to manage or remedy properly, these materials may adversely affect occupancy at affected apartment communities and the ability to sell or finance affected properties. In addition to the costs associated with investigation and remediation actions brought by government agencies, and potential fines or penalties imposed by such agencies in connection therewith, the improper management of these materials on a property could result in claims by private plaintiffs for personal injury, disease, disability or other infirmities. Various laws also impose liability for the cost of removal, remediation or disposal of these materials through a licensed disposal or treatment facility. Anyone who arranges for the disposal or treatment of these materials is potentially liable under such laws for the proper operation of the disposal facility. These laws often impose liability whether or not the person arranging for the disposal ever owned or operated the disposal facility. In connection with the ownership, operation and management of its property, the Partnership could potentially be responsible for environmental liabilities or costs associated with its property.

 


ITEM 2.     MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a “safe harbor” for forward-looking statements in certain circumstances. Certain information included in this Quarterly Report contains or may contain information that is forward-looking within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Partnership’s ability to maintain current or meet projected occupancy, rental rates and property operating results and the effect of redevelopments. Actual results may differ materially from those described in these forward-looking statements and, in addition, will be affected by a variety of risks and factors, some of which are beyond the Partnership’s control, including, without limitation: financing risks, including the availability and cost of financing and the risk that the Partnership’s cash flows from operations may be insufficient to meet required payments of principal and interest; natural disasters and severe weather such as hurricanes; national and local economic conditions, including the pace of job growth and the level of unemployment; energy costs; the terms of governmental regulations that affect the Partnership’s property and interpretations of those regulations; the competitive environment in which the Partnership operates; real estate risks, including fluctuations in real estate values and the general economic climate in local markets and competition for residents in such markets; insurance risk, including the cost of insurance; litigation, including costs associated with prosecuting or defending claims and any adverse outcomes; and possible environmental liabilities, including costs, fines or penalties that may be incurred due to necessary remediation of contamination of properties presently owned or previously owned by the Partnership. Readers should carefully review the Partnership’s financial statements and the notes thereto, as well as the other documents the Partnership files from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

The Partnership's investment property consists of one apartment complex. The following table sets forth the average occupancy of the property for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011:

 

 

Average Occupancy

Property

2012

2011

 

 

 

Colony at Kenilworth Apartments

92%

93%

Towson, Maryland

 

 

 

The Partnership’s financial results depend upon a number of factors including the ability to attract and maintain tenants at the investment property, interest rates on mortgage loans, costs incurred to operate the investment property, general economic conditions and weather. As part of the ongoing business plan of the Partnership, the Managing General Partner monitors the rental market environment of the investment property to assess the feasibility of increasing rents, maintaining or increasing occupancy levels and protecting the Partnership from increases in expenses. As part of this plan, the Managing General Partner attempts to protect the Partnership from the burden of inflation-related increases in expenses by increasing rents and maintaining a high overall occupancy level. However, the Managing General Partner may use rental concessions and rental rate reductions to offset softening market conditions; accordingly, there is no guarantee that the Managing General Partner will be able to sustain such a plan. Further, a number of factors that are outside the control of the Partnership such as the local economic climate and weather can adversely or positively affect the Partnership’s financial results.

 

Results of Operations

 

The Partnership’s net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was approximately $538,000 and $1,279,000, respectively, compared to net loss of approximately $516,000 and $1,124,000, respectively, for the corresponding periods in 2011. The increase in net loss for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 is due to an increase in total expenses, partially offset by an increase in total revenues.

 

Total expenses increased for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 primarily due to increases in operating and interest expenses. Depreciation, property tax and general and administrative expenses remained relatively constant for the comparable periods. Operating expenses increased primarily due to increases in contract services for landscaping and pest control, call center and turnover costs and software and maintenance expenses. Interest expense increased primarily due to an increase in interest on advances from an affiliate of the Managing General Partner as a result of a higher average outstanding advance balance.

 

Included in general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 are management reimbursements to the Managing General Partner as allowed under the Partnership Agreement, costs associated with the quarterly and annual communications with investors and regulatory agencies and the annual audit required by the Partnership Agreement.

 

Total revenues increased for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 due to an increase in rental income. Other income remained relatively constant for the comparable periods. Rental income increased for the three month period due to an increase in the average rental rate and an increase in occupancy. Rental income increased for the nine month period due to an increase in the average rental rate, partially offset by a decrease in occupancy.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At September 30, 2012, the Partnership had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $110,000, compared to approximately $65,000 at December 31, 2011.  Cash and cash equivalents increased approximately $45,000 due to approximately $309,000 and $388,000 of cash provided by operating and financing activities, respectively, partially offset by approximately $652,000 of cash used in investing activities. Cash provided by financing activities consisted of advances received from AIMCO Properties, L.P., partially offset by principal payments made on the mortgages encumbering the Partnership’s investment property. Cash used in investing activities consisted of property improvements and replacements.

 

The Partnership may receive advances of funds from AIMCO Properties, L.P., an affiliate of the Managing General Partner and the holder of a majority of the beneficial interest of the Partnership. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, AIMCO Properties, L.P. advanced the Partnership approximately $655,000 to fund operations at the Partnership and real estate taxes and operations at the Partnership’s investment property. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, AIMCO Properties, L.P. advanced the Partnership approximately $606,000 to fund real estate taxes and operations at the Partnership’s investment property. The advances bear interest at the prime rate plus 2% (5.25% at September 30, 2012) per annum. Interest expense was approximately $325,000 and $275,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Partnership paid approximately $95,000 of accrued interest. There were no such payments during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. At September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the total advances and accrued interest owed to AIMCO Properties, L.P. were approximately $8,924,000 and $7,944,000, respectively, and are included in due to affiliates. The Partnership may receive additional advances of funds from AIMCO Properties, L.P. although AIMCO Properties, L.P. is not obligated to provide such advances.  For more information on AIMCO Properties, L.P., including copies of its audited balance sheet, please see its reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

The sufficiency of existing liquid assets to meet future liquidity and capital expenditure requirements is directly related to the level of capital expenditures required at the investment property to adequately maintain the physical asset and other operating needs of the Partnership and to comply with Federal, state, and local legal and regulatory requirements. The Managing General Partner monitors developments in the area of legal and regulatory compliance.  Capital improvements planned for the Partnership’s property are detailed below.

 

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Partnership completed approximately $810,000 of capital improvements at Colony at Kenilworth Apartments, consisting primarily of roofing, countertops, building improvements, heating and electrical upgrades and floor covering replacements. These improvements were funded from operating cash flow and advances from AIMCO Properties, L.P. The Partnership regularly evaluates the capital improvement needs of the property. While the Partnership has no material commitments for property improvements and replacements, certain routine capital expenditures are anticipated during 2012. Such capital expenditures will depend on the physical condition of the property as well as anticipated cash flow generated by the property.

 

Capital expenditures will be incurred only if cash is available from operations, Partnership reserves or advances from AIMCO Properties, L.P., although AIMCO Properties, L.P. does not have an obligation to fund such advances.  To the extent that capital improvements are completed, the Partnership's distributable cash flow, if any, may be adversely affected at least in the short term.

 

The Partnership’s assets are thought to be generally sufficient for any of its near-term needs (exclusive of capital improvements and repayment of advances from affiliates). If cash flows are insufficient for the Partnership to meet its current obligations, the Partnership may request additional advances of funds from AIMCO Properties, L.P., although AIMCO Properties, L.P. is not obligated to provide such advances. The mortgage indebtedness encumbering Colony at Kenilworth Apartments of approximately $23,524,000 matures in July 2019 and July 2021, at which time balloon payments of approximately $10,415,000 and $9,451,000, respectively, will be due. The Managing General Partner will attempt to refinance such indebtedness and/or sell the property prior to such maturity dates. If the property cannot be refinanced or sold for a sufficient amount, the Partnership will risk losing such property through foreclosure.

 

There were no distributions made by the Partnership during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. Future cash distributions will depend on the levels of cash generated from operations and the timing of the debt maturities, property sale and/or refinancings. The Partnership's cash available for distribution is reviewed on a monthly basis. In light of the significant amounts accrued and payable to affiliates of the Managing General Partner at September 30, 2012, there can be no assurance that the Partnership will generate sufficient funds from operations, after planned capital expenditures and repayment of amounts due to affiliates, to permit any distributions to its partners in 2012 or subsequent periods.

In addition to its indirect ownership of the Managing General Partner interest in the Partnership, Aimco and its affiliates owned 76,622 limited partnership units (the “Units”) in the Partnership representing 69.94% of the outstanding Units at September 30, 2012. A number of these Units were acquired pursuant to tender offers made by Aimco or its affiliates. It is possible that Aimco or its affiliates will acquire additional Units in exchange for cash or a combination of cash and units in AIMCO Properties, L.P., the operating partnership of Aimco, either through private purchases or tender offers. Pursuant to the Partnership Agreement, Unit holders holding a majority of the Units are entitled to take action with respect to a variety of matters that include, but are not limited to, voting on certain amendments to the Partnership Agreement and voting to remove the Managing General Partner. As a result of its ownership of 69.94% of the outstanding Units, Aimco and its affiliates are in a position to influence all such voting decisions with respect to the Partnership. However, with respect to the 46,289 Units acquired on January 19, 1996, AIMCO IPLP, L.P. ("IPLP"), an affiliate of the Managing General Partner and of Aimco, agreed to vote such Units: (i) against any increase in compensation payable to the Managing General Partner or to its affiliates; and (ii) on all other matters submitted by it or its affiliates, in proportion to the vote cast by third party unitholders. Except for the foregoing, no other limitations are imposed on IPLP's, Aimco's or any other affiliates' right to vote each Unit held. Although the Managing General Partner owes fiduciary duties to the limited partners of the Partnership, the Managing General Partner also owes fiduciary duties to Aimco as its sole stockholder. As a result, the duties of the Managing General Partner, as Managing General Partner, to the Partnership and its limited partners may come into conflict with the duties of the Managing General Partner to Aimco as its sole stockholder.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, which require the Partnership to make estimates and assumptions. The Partnership believes that of its significant accounting policies, the following may involve a higher degree of judgment and complexity.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Asset

 

Investment property is recorded at cost, less accumulated depreciation, unless the carrying amount of the asset is not recoverable.  If events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the property may not be recoverable, the Partnership will make an assessment of its recoverability by comparing the carrying amount to the Partnership’s estimate of the undiscounted future cash flows, excluding interest charges, of the property.   If the carrying amount exceeds the estimated aggregate undiscounted future cash flows, the Partnership would recognize an impairment loss to the extent the carrying amount exceeds the estimated fair value of the property.

 

Real property investment is subject to varying degrees of risk.  Several factors may adversely affect the economic performance and value of the Partnership’s investment property.  These factors include, but are not limited to, general economic climate; competition from other apartment communities and other housing options; local conditions, such as loss of jobs or an increase in the supply of apartments that might adversely affect apartment occupancy or rental rates; changes in governmental regulations and the related cost of compliance; increases in operating costs (including real estate taxes) due to inflation and other factors, which may not be offset by increased rents; changes in tax laws and housing laws, including the enactment of rent control laws or other laws regulating multi-family housing; and changes in interest rates and the availability of financing.  Any adverse changes in these and other factors could cause an impairment of the Partnership’s asset.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Partnership generally leases apartment units for twelve-month terms or less. The Partnership will offer rental concessions during particularly slow months or in response to heavy competition from other similar complexes in the area. Rental income attributable to leases, net of any concessions, is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. The Partnership evaluates all accounts receivable from residents and establishes an allowance, after the application of security deposits, for accounts greater than 30 days past due on current tenants and all receivables due from former tenants.

 

ITEM 3.     QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

Not applicable.

 


ITEM 4.     CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a)   Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

The Partnership’s management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer of the Managing General Partner, who are the equivalent of the Partnership’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, respectively, has evaluated the effectiveness of the Partnership’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”)) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, the principal executive officer and principal financial officer of the Managing General Partner, who are the equivalent of the Partnership’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer, respectively, have concluded that, as of the end of such period, the Partnership’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective. 

 

(b)   Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal quarter to which this report relates that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting.
