Certain statements contained in this discussion or elsewhere in this report may be deemed “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Words and phrases such as “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, “designed to achieve”, variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. All statements that address operating performance, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future – including statements relating to rent and occupancy growth, general conditions in the geographic areas where we operate – are forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict.

Although we believe the expectations reflected in any forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurance that our expectations will be attained and therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. Many of the factors that may affect outcomes and results are beyond our ability to control.

DSI REALTY INCOME FUND VII
(A California Real Estate Limited Partnership)

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2012

1. GENERAL

Registrant, DSI Realty Income Fund VII (the “Partnership”) is a publicly-held limited partnership organized under the California Uniform Limited Partnership Act pursuant to a Certificate and Agreement of Limited Partnership (hereinafter referred to as “Agreement”) dated August 1, 1983. The General Partners are DSI Properties, Inc., a California corporation, and RJC Capital Management, LLC and JWC Capital Management, LLC.

DSI Properties, Inc. is an affiliate of Diversified Securities, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of DSI Financial, Inc. The General Partners provide similar services to other partnerships. Through its public offering of Limited Partnership Units, Registrant sold twenty-four thousand (24,000) units of limited partnership interests aggregating Twelve Million Dollars ($12,000,000). The General Partners have retained a one percent (1%) interest in all profits, losses and distributions (subject to certain conditions) without making any capital contribution to the Partnership. The General Partners are not required to make any capital contributions to the Partnership in the future.

The Partnership has acquired mini-storage facilities located in Chico, Fairfield, La Verne, and Riverside, California and Littleton, Colorado. All facilities were purchased from Dahn Corporation (“Dahn”). Dahn is not affiliated with the Partnership. Dahn is affiliated with other partnerships in which DSI Properties, Inc. is a general partner.

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared by the Partnership’s management in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and in conjunction with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures required for annual financial statements have been condensed or excluded pursuant to SEC rules and regulations. Accordingly, the unaudited interim financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature which are considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the interim periods presented. However, the results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. These unaudited interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Partnership’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 
 

Significant Accounting Policies

The Partnership has adopted Accounting Standards Update 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 comprehensive income equaled net income, as the Partnership had no other comprehensive income. As of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, accumulated other comprehensive income was $0.

ASC 825-10 (formerly SFAS 107, “Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments”) defines financial instruments and requires disclosure of the fair value of financial instruments held by the Partnership. The Partnership considers the carrying amount of cash, accounts receivable, other receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, to approximate their fair values because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In December 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-11, Balance Sheet (Topic 210), Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities, which requires companies to disclose information about financial instruments that have been offset and related arrangements to enable users of its financial statements to understand the effect of those arrangements on its financial position. Companies will be required to provide both net (offset amounts) and gross information in the notes to the financial statements for relevant assets and liabilities that are offset. This standard will be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The Partnership does not expect the adoption of the standard update to impact its financial position or results of operations, as it only requires additional disclosure in the Partnership’s financial statements.

In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. The new guidance results in a consistent definition of fair value and common requirements for measurement of and disclosure about fair value between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. While many of the amendments to U.S. GAAP are not expected to have a significant effect on practice, the new guidance changes some fair value measurement principles and disclosure requirements. This new guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of the standard update does not have a significant impact on its financial position or results of operations.

2. PROPERTY


Properties owned by the Partnership are all mini-storage facilities. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of 20 years. Property under capital leases is amortized over the lives of the respective leases. The total cost of property and accumulated depreciation at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, were as follows:

  September 30, 2012 December 31, 2011
Land $ 1,714,700  $ 1,714,700 
Buildings and improvements 6,450,550  6,449,078 
Rental trucks under capital leases 140,093  140,093 
Total $ 8,305,343  $ 8,303,871 
Less accumulated depreciation (6,560,272) (6,544,843)
Property – net $ 1,745,071  $ 1,759,028 

3. NET INCOME PER LIMITED PARTNERSHIP UNIT

Net income per limited partnership unit is calculated by dividing the net income allocated to the limited partners by the number of limited partnership units outstanding during the period.

4. ALLOCATION OF PROFITS AND LOSSES AND GENERAL PARTNERS' INCENTIVE MANAGEMENT FEE

Under the Agreement of Limited Partnership, the general partners are to be allocated 1% of the net profits or losses from operations, and the limited partners are to be allocated the balance of the net profits or losses from operations in proportion to their limited partnership interests. The general partners are also entitled to receive a percentage, based on a predetermined formula, of any cash distribution from the sale, other disposition, or refinancing of the project.

In addition, the general partners are entitled to receive an incentive management fee for supervising the operations of the Partnership. The fee is to be paid in an amount equal to 9% per annum of the cash available for distribution on a cumulative basis, calculated as cash generated from operations less capital expenditures.

5. RELATED-PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Partnership has entered into a management agreement with Dahn to operate its mini-storage facilities. The management agreement provides for a management fee equal to 5% of gross revenue from operations, which is defined as the entire amount of all receipts from the renting or leasing of storage compartments and sale of locks. The management agreement is renewable annually. Dahn earned management fees equal to $71,415 and $71,097, for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Amounts payable to Dahn at September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $7,659 and $7,829, respectively.

Beginning in July 2011, the General Partner, DSI Properties, Inc. performs all tax related work with respect to the Partnership. These services are paid monthly in the amount of $3,826. Tax fees paid to DSI Properties, Inc. for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $34,434 and $10,716, respectively.

6. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Events subsequent to September 30, 2012, have been evaluated through the date these unaudited interim financial statements were issued to determine whether they should be disclosed to keep the unaudited interim financial statements from being misleading. Management found no subsequent events that should be disclosed.



 
 

ITEM 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Critical Accounting Policies

Revenue recognition - Revenue is recognized using the accrual method based on contractual amounts provided for in the lease agreements, which approximates recognition on a straight-line basis. The term of the lease agreements is usually less than one year.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

2012 COMPARED TO 2011  

For the three-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, revenues decreased 0.4% to $495,529 from $497,760 and total expenses increased 10.1% to $364,389 from $330,826 resulting in a decrease in net income of 21.4% to $131,140 from $166,934. Rental revenues remained relatively unchanged. Occupancy levels for the Partnership's mini-storage facilities averaged 71.8% for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to 70.6% for the same period in 2011. Operating expenses increased $44,912 or 21.6% primarily due to increases in repair and maintenance and salaries and wages. General and administrative expenses decreased $3,593 or 5.0% primarily as a result of a decrease in legal and professional expenses.

For the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, revenues remained relatively unchanged at $1,417,228 from $1,417,387 and total expenses increased 4.6% to $1,027,773 from $982,143 resulting in a decrease in net income of 10.5% to $389,455 from $435,244. Occupancy levels for the Partnership's mini-storage facilities averaged 71.3% for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2012, compared to 68.2% for the same period in 2011. Operating expenses increased $63,069 or 10.3% primarily due to increases in repairs and maintenance, salaries and wages and employee promotional expenses; partially offset by decreases in promotional & miscellaneous advertising. General and administrative expenses decreased $14,789 or 6.3% primarily as a result of a decrease in legal and professional expenses.

The General Partners plan to continue their policy of funding the continuing improvement and maintenance of Partnership properties with cash generated from operations. In addition, the Partnership is continuing its marketing efforts to attract and keep new tenants in its various mini-storage facilities.


ITEM 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

Not required.

ITEM 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Partnership’s management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer of DSI Properties, Inc., its 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.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting.

There have been no significant changes 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 reporting period that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Partnership’s internal control over financial reporting.
