EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Capital Properties, Inc. (OTCQX: CPTP) reported net income of $514,000 and $1,603,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.  Based upon 6,599,912 shares outstanding, the basic income per common share for the same periods was $.07 and $.24.  For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, the Company had reported net income of $139,000 and $1,278,000, respectively.  Based upon 6,599,912 shares outstanding, the basic income per common share for the same periods was $.02 and $.19, respectively.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, leasing revenue increased $53,000 and $287,000, respectively, from 2011 due to scheduled increases in rentals under long-term land leases and increases in rentals and reimbursements for common area costs under short-term leases.  For the three months ended September 30, 2012, leasing expense decreased $66,000 from 2011 due to decreases in professional fees.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, leasing expense decreased $25,000 from 2011 due to decreases in expenses for the Steeple Street Building.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, petroleum storage facility ("Facility") revenues increased $27,000 from 2011 due to scheduled annual cost-of-living adjustments under the lease for the Facility.   At September 30, 2011, the Company recorded costs of $355,000 in connection with a pipeline breach in August 2011 and $132,000 in connection with an ultra low sulfur diesel incident in March 2011.  Exclusive of these amounts, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, Facility expense increased $59,000 from 2011 due to professional fees in connection with the preliminary exercise of the option to purchase the Facility by the tenant, offset in part by lower levels of repairs and maintenance costs.

In June 2011, the tenant of the Facility reimbursed the Company $458,000 for certain costs associated with the cleanup, inspection and repair of a tank (which costs were recorded in 2010) and an additional $37,000 for tank repairs.  Exclusive of these amounts, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, Facility revenues increased $76,000 from 2011 due to scheduled annual cost-of-living adjustments under the lease for the Facility.

At September 30, 2011, the Company recorded costs of $355,000 in connection with a pipeline breach in August 2011 and $132,000 in connection with an ultra low sulfur diesel incident in March 2011.  In May 2012, the Company was reimbursed $90,000 in costs associated with that pipeline breach, which amount was recorded as a reduction of expense.  Exclusive of these amounts, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, Facility expense increased $23,000 from 2011 due to increases in payroll and related costs and professional fees in connection with preliminary exercise of the option to purchase the Facility by the tenant, offset in part by lower levels of repairs and maintenance costs.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expense increased $10,000 from 2011 due to increases in professional fees.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, general and administrative expense increased $53,000 from 2011 due to increases in payroll and related costs and professional fees. 

In June 2012, the Company made a principal prepayment of $1,000,000 on its note payable.  In June and December 2011, the Company made principal prepayments of $1,000,000 and $525,000, respectively.   Any future prepayments will depend on the Company's level of available cash.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
