General
 
America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (the “Partnership”) was formed on April 2, 1998, under the Delaware Revised Uniform Limited Partnership Act for the primary purpose of acquiring, holding, selling and otherwise dealing with a portfolio of mortgage revenue bonds which have been issued to provide construction and/or permanent financing of multifamily residential properties.  The Partnership expects and believes the interest earned on these mortgage revenue bonds is excludable from gross income for federal income tax purposes.  As a result, most of the income earned by the Partnership is exempt from federal income taxes.  The Partnership may also invest in other types of securities that may or may not be secured by real estate and may make taxable property loans secured by multifamily properties which are financed by mortgage revenue bonds held by the Partnership.  The Partnership generally does not seek to acquire direct interests in real property as long term or permanent investments.  The Partnership may, however, acquire real estate securing its mortgage revenue bonds or taxable mortgage loans through foreclosure in the event of a default.  In addition, the Partnership may acquire interests in multifamily apartment properties (“MF Properties”) in order to position itself for future investments in mortgage revenue bonds issued to finance these properties. The Partnership expects to sell its interest in these MF Properties in connection with the future syndication of low income housing tax credits under Section 42 of the Internal Revenue Code (“LIHTCs”) or to a tax-exempt organization and to acquire mortgage revenue bonds on these properties to provide debt financing to the new owners.
 
Our general partner is America First Capital Associates Limited Partnership Two (“AFCA 2” or “General Partner”).  The general partner of AFCA2 is The Burlington Capital Group LLC (“Burlington”). The Partnership has issued Beneficial Unit Certificates (“BUCs”) representing assigned limited partner interests to investors (“unitholders”).  The Partnership will terminate on December 31, 2050, unless terminated earlier under provisions of its Agreement of Limited Partnership.
 
The “Company” refers to the consolidated financial statements reported in this Form 10-Q which include the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of the Partnership, its Consolidated Subsidiaries (defined below) and two entities in which the Partnership does not hold an ownership interest but which own multifamily apartment properties financed with mortgage revenue bonds held by the Partnership and which are treated as variable interest entities (“VIEs”) of which the Partnership has been determined to be the primary beneficiary (the “Consolidated VIEs”). On June 30, 2014, the Consolidated Subsidiaries of the Partnership consist of:

ATAX TEBS I, LLC, a special purpose entity owned and controlled by the Partnership, created to hold mortgage revenue bonds in order to facilitate the Tax Exempt Bond Securitization (“TEBS”) Financing with Freddie Mac (Note 10).
Nine multifamily apartments (“MF Properties”) which are either wholly or majority owned by subsidiaries of the Partnership.

Stand alone financial information of the Partnership reported in this Form 10-Q includes only the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of the Partnership and its Consolidated Subsidiaries (hereafter the “Partnership”) without the Consolidated VIEs.  In the Company’s consolidated financial statements, all transactions and accounts between the Partnership, the Consolidated Subsidiaries and the Consolidated VIEs have been eliminated in consolidation.  The Partnership does not believe that the consolidation of VIEs for reporting under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) affects the Partnership’s status as a partnership for federal income tax purposes or the status of unitholders as partners of the Partnership, the treatment of the mortgage revenue bonds on the properties owned by Consolidated VIEs as debt, the nature of the interest payments, which it believes to be tax-exempt, received on the mortgage revenue bonds secured by the properties owned by Consolidated VIEs or the manner in which the Partnership’s income is reported to unitholders on IRS Form K-1.

The unallocated deficit of the Consolidated VIEs is primarily comprised of the accumulated historical net losses of the Consolidated VIEs since the applicable consolidation date. The unallocated deficit of the VIEs and the VIEs’ net losses subsequent to that date are not allocated to the General Partner and unitholders as such activity is not contemplated by, or addressed in, the Agreement of Limited Partnership.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The accompanying interim unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared according to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted according to such rules and regulations, although management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013. These condensed consolidated financial statements and notes have been prepared consistently with the 2013 Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal and recurring accruals) necessary to present fairly the financial position as of June 30, 2014, and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been made. The results of operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Subsequent to the issuance of the Company’s financial statements on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2013, certain amounts included in the Consolidated Balance Sheet have been restated to correct an error related to the presentation of interest receivable on taxable loans.  Such correction recorded the loan loss reserve related to interest receivable against the interest receivable line of the consolidated balance sheet rather than against the other assets line, which includes the principle amount of taxable loans.   This correction resulted in a decrease in interest receivable and an increase in other assets of approximately $6.2 million.  This correction did not have an impact on total assets as reported in the Consolidated Balance Sheets and did not have an impact on the Consolidated Statements of Operations for all periods presented.

Partnership Income, Expenses and Cash Distributions
 
The Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Partnership contains provisions for the distribution of Net Interest Income, Net Residual Proceeds and Liquidation Proceeds, for the allocation of income or loss from operations and for the allocation of income and loss arising from a repayment, sale, or liquidation of investments.  Income and losses will be allocated to each unitholder on a periodic basis, as determined by the General Partner, based on the number of BUCs held by each unitholder as of the last day of the period for which such allocation is to be made. Distributions of Net Interest Income and Net Residual Proceeds will be made to each unitholder of record on the last day of each distribution period based on the number of BUCs held by each unitholder as of such date. For purposes of the Agreement of Limited Partnership, cash distributions, if any, received by the Partnership from its indirect interest in MF Properties (Note 7) will be included in the Partnership’s Interest Income and cash distributions received by the Partnership from the sale of such properties will be included in the Partnership’s Residual Proceeds.

Cash distributions are currently made on a quarterly basis but may be made on a monthly or semiannual basis at the election of AFCA 2.  On each distribution date, Net Interest Income is distributed 99% to the unitholders and 1% to AFCA 2 and Net Residual Proceeds are distributed 100% to unitholders except that Net Interest Income and Net Residual Proceeds representing contingent interest in an amount equal to 0.9% per annum of the principal amount of the mortgage revenue bonds on a cumulative basis (defined as Net Interest Income (Tier 2) and Net Residual Proceeds (Tier 2), respectively) are distributed 75% to the unitholders and 25% to AFCA 2.

Variable Interest Entities

The Partnership invests in mortgage revenue bonds which have been issued to provide construction and/or permanent financing of multifamily residential apartments.  The Partnership owns 100% of these mortgage revenue bonds and each bond is secured by a first mortgage on the property.  In certain cases, the Partnership has also made taxable property loans to the property owners which are secured by second mortgages on these properties.  Although each multifamily property financed with mortgage revenue bonds held by the Partnership is owned by a separate entity in which the Partnership has no equity ownership interest, the debt financing provided by the Partnership creates a variable interest in these ownership entities that may require the Partnership to report the assets, liabilities, and results of operations of these entities on a consolidated basis under GAAP.   

At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Partnership determined that four of the entities financed by mortgage revenue bonds owned by the Partnership were held by VIEs.  These VIEs were Ashley Square, Bent Tree, Cross Creek, and Fairmont Oaks. The Partnership then determined that it is the primary beneficiary of two of these VIEs; Bent Tree and Fairmont Oaks and has continued to consolidate these entities. As of June 30, 2013, a fifth entity, Lake Forest, which is also financed by a mortgage revenue bond owned by the Partnership, was held by a VIE. Effective December 1, 2013, the ownership of Lake Forest became a not-for-profit entity and Lake Forest ceased to be reported as a Consolidated VIE.

The Partnership does not hold an equity interest in these VIEs and, therefore, the assets of the VIEs cannot be used to settle the general commitments of the Partnership and the Partnership is not responsible for the commitments and liabilities of the VIEs.  The primary risks to the Partnership associated with these VIEs relate to the entities’ ability to meet debt service obligations to the Partnership and the valuation of the underlying multifamily apartment property which serves as bond collateral.

The following is a discussion of the significant judgments and assumptions made by the Partnership in determining the primary beneficiary of the VIE and, therefore, whether the Partnership must consolidate the VIE.

Consolidated VIEs

In determining the primary beneficiary of these VIEs, the Partnership considers the activities of the VIE which most significantly impact the VIEs’ economic performance, who has the power to control such activities, the risks which the entities were designed to create, the variability associated with those risks and the interests which absorb such variability.  The Partnership also considers the related party relationship of the entities involved in the VIEs.  At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Partnership determined it is the primary beneficiary of the Bent Tree and Fairmont Oaks VIEs. The capital structure of Bent Tree and Fairmont Oaks VIEs consists of senior debt, subordinated debt, and equity capital. The senior debt is in the form of a mortgage revenue bond and accounts for the majority of the VIEs’ total capital. As the bondholder, the Partnership is entitled to principal and interest payments and has certain protective rights as established by the bond documents. The equity ownership of the consolidated VIEs is ultimately held by corporations which are owned by four individuals, two of which are related parties.  Additionally, each of these properties is managed by an affiliate of the Partnership, America First Properties Management Company, LLC (“Properties Management”) which is an affiliate of Burlington Capital Group, LLC (“Burlington”).

Non-Consolidated VIEs

The Company did not consolidate two VIE entities, Ashley Square and Cross Creek as of June 30, 2014 based on its determination of the primary beneficiary of these two VIE entities. As discussed below, while the capital structures of these VIEs resulted in the Partnership holding a majority of the variable interests in these VIEs, the Partnership determined it does not have the power to direct the activities of these VIEs that most significantly impact the VIEs’ economic performance and, as a result, is not the primary beneficiary of these VIEs.
 
Ashley Square –  Ashley Square Housing Cooperative acquired the ownership of the Ashley Square Apartments in December 2008 from Ashley Square LLC through a warranty deed of transfer and an assumption of debt.  This transfer of ownership constituted a reconsideration event as outlined in the consolidation guidance which triggered a re-evaluation of the holders of variable interests to determine the primary beneficiary of the VIE.  The capital structure of the VIE consists of senior debt, subordinated loans and equity capital.  The senior debt is in the form of mortgage revenue bonds that are 100% owned by the Partnership and account for the majority of the VIE’s total capital.  As the bondholder, the Partnership is entitled to principal and interest payments and has certain protective rights as established by the bond documents.  The VIE is organized as a housing cooperative and the 99% equity owner of this VIE is The Foundation for Affordable Housing (“FAH”), an unaffiliated Nebraska not-for-profit organization.  Additionally, this property is managed by Properties Management.

Cross Creek –  Cross Creek Apartments Holdings LLC is the owner of the Cross Creek Apartments.  On January 1, 2010, Cross Creek Apartment Holdings LLC entered into a new operating agreement and admitted three new members.  These new members committed approximately $2.2 million of capital payable in three installments including $563,000 on January 1, 2010.  The new operating agreement and admission of new owner members constituted a reconsideration event as outlined in the consolidation guidance which triggered a re-evaluation of the holders of variable interests to determine the primary beneficiary of the VIE.  The capital structure of the VIE consists of senior debt, subordinated loans, and equity capital at risk.  The senior debt is in the form of mortgage revenue bonds that are 100% owned by the Partnership and account for the majority of the VIE’s total capital.  As the bondholder, the Partnership is entitled to principal and interest payments and has certain protective rights as established by the bond documents.  The three newly admitted members of this VIE are each unaffiliated with the Partnership and have contributed significant equity capital to the VIE.  These members collectively control a 99% interest in the VIE.  The other 1% member of this VIE is FAH, which is also unaffiliated with the Partnership.  Additionally, this property is managed by Properties Management.








The following table presents information regarding the carrying value and classification of the assets held by the Partnership as of June 30, 2014 which constitute a variable interest in Ashley Square and Cross Creek.

The mortgage revenue bonds are classified on the balance sheet as available for sale investments and are carried at fair value while taxable property loans are presented on the balance sheet as Other assets and are carried at the unpaid principal and interest less any loan loss reserves.  See Note 4 for additional information regarding the mortgage revenue bonds and Note 8 for additional information regarding the taxable property loans.  The maximum exposure to loss for the mortgage revenue bonds is equal to the unpaid principal balance as of June 30, 2014.  The difference between the mortgage revenue bond’s carrying value and the maximum exposure to loss is a function of the fair value of the bond.  The difference between the taxable property loan’s carrying value and the maximum exposure is the value of loan loss reserves that have been previously recorded against the outstanding taxable property loan balances.
