Looks like I was beat to the punch on this topic. Here is the same question in the comments thread on the SA earnings release report.
For example, the Trust has redeployed approximately $83 million of the $100 million of the sale proceeds in a tax-free 1031 Exchange, creating 53,000 contiguous acres in the core of the Delaware Basin1, including highly strategic acreage on the Texas-New Mexico border. This position is leased by blue chip E&P operators with large capital development budgets and best-in-class safety and environmental implementation.
If $83MM has already been spent under 1031, does the reported gain get backed out of EPS next quarter? If so, shouldn’t that have been reported in the press release? There probably is a regulatory/accounting reason for reporting it in the manner that it was. Can anyone help clear this up?
