Capital Trust, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)
 
1.
Organization
 
References herein to “we,” “us” or “our” refer to Capital Trust, Inc. and its subsidiaries unless the context specifically requires otherwise.
 
We are a fully integrated, self-managed, real estate finance and investment management company that specializes in credit sensitive financial products. To date, our investment programs have focused on loans and securities backed by commercial real estate assets. We invest for our own account directly on our balance sheet and for third parties through a series of investment management vehicles. From the inception of our finance business in 1997 through June 30, 2009, we have completed over $11.0 billion of investments in the commercial real estate debt arena. We conduct our operations as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, for federal income tax purposes and we are headquartered in New York City.
 
2.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The accompanying unaudited consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations filed with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. In our opinion, all material adjustments (consisting of normal, recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the entire year ending December 31, 2009.
 
Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying financial statements include, on a consolidated basis, our accounts, the accounts of our wholly-owned subsidiaries and our interests in variable interest entities in which we are the primary beneficiary, prepared in accordance with GAAP. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Our co-investment interest in the private equity funds we manage, CT Mezzanine Partners III, Inc., or Fund III, and CT Opportunity Partners I, LP, or CTOPI, and others are accounted for using the equity method. These entities’ assets and liabilities are not consolidated into our financial statements due to our determination that either (i) for entities that are variable interest entities we are not the primary beneficiary under Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, Interpretation No. 46(R) “Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities,” or FIN 46(R), generally due to the insignificance of our share of ownership and certain control provisions for these entities, or (ii) for entities that are not variable interest entities, our investors have sufficient rights under Emerging Issues Task Force, or EITF, 04-05, “Determining Whether a General Partner, or the General Partners as a Group, Controls a Limited Partnership or Similar Entity When the Limited Partners Have Certain Rights”, to preclude consolidation. As such, we report our allocable percentage of the earnings or losses of these entities on a single line item in the consolidated statements of operations as income/(loss) from equity investments. CTOPI maintains its financial records at fair value in accordance with GAAP. We have applied such accounting relative to our investment in CTOPI pursuant to EITF 85-12 “Retention of Specialized Accounting for Investments in Consolidation,” according to which we include any adjustments to fair value recorded at the fund level in determining the income/(loss) we record on our equity investment in CTOPI.
 
Revenue Recognition
Interest income from our loans receivable is recognized over the life of the investment using the effective interest method and is recorded on the accrual basis. Fees, premiums, discounts and direct costs in connection with these investments are deferred until the loan is advanced and are then recognized over the term of the loan as an adjustment to yield. For loans where we have unfunded commitments, we amortize these fees and other items on a straight line basis. Fees on commitments that expire unused are recognized at expiration. Income recognition is generally suspended for loans at the earlier of the date at which payments become 90 days past due or when, in the opinion of management, a full recovery of income and principal becomes doubtful. Income recognition is resumed when the loan becomes contractually current and performance is demonstrated to be resumed.
 
Fees from special servicing and asset management services are recorded on an accrual basis as services are rendered under the applicable agreements, and when receipt of fees is reasonably certain. We account for incentive fees we earn from our investment management business in accordance with Method 1 of EITF D-96, “Accounting for Management Fees Based on a Formula.” Under this guidance, no incentive income is recorded until all contingencies have been eliminated. Accordingly, revenue recognition has been deferred for certain fees received which are subject to potential repayment provisions. Depending on the structure of our investment management vehicles, certain incentive fees may be in the form of carried interest or promote distributions.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
We classify highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less from the date of purchase as cash equivalents. We place our cash and cash equivalents with high credit quality institutions to minimize credit risk exposure. As of, and for the periods ended, June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, we had bank balances in excess of federally insured amounts. We have not experienced any losses on our demand deposits, commercial paper or money market investments.
 
Restricted Cash
Restricted cash as of June 30, 2009 was comprised of $155,000 held on deposit with the trustee for our collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, and is expected to be used to pay contractual interest and principal. Restricted cash as of December 31, 2008 was $18.8 million.
 
Securities
We classify our securities pursuant to FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 115, “Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities,” or FAS 115, on the date of acquisition of the investment. On August 4, 2005, we decided to change the accounting classification of certain of our securities from available-for-sale to held-to-maturity. Held-to-maturity investments are stated at cost adjusted for the amortization of any premiums or discounts, which are amortized through the consolidated statements of operations using the effective interest method. Other than in the instance of an other-than-temporary impairment (as discussed below), these held-to-maturity investments are shown in our consolidated financial statements at their adjusted values pursuant to the methodology described above.
 
We may also invest in securities which may be classified as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are carried at estimated fair value with the net unrealized gains or losses reported as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income/(loss) in shareholders’ equity. Many of these investments are relatively illiquid and management must estimate their values. In making these estimates, management utilizes market prices provided by dealers who make markets in these securities, but may, under certain circumstances, adjust these valuations based on management’s judgment. Changes in the valuations do not affect our reported income or cash flows, but impact shareholders’ equity and, accordingly, book value per share.
 
We account for our securities under EITF 99-20, “Recognition of Interest Income and Impairment on Purchased and Retained Beneficial Interests in Securitized Financial Assets,” as amended by FASB Staff Position EITF 99-20-1, “Amendments to the Impairment Guidance of EITF Issue No. 99-20,” or EITF 99-20-1. Under EITF 99-20-1, income is recognized using a level yield with any purchase premium or discount accreted through income over the life of the security. This yield is calculated using cash flows expected to be collected which are based on a number of assumptions on the underlying loans. Examples include, among other things, the rate and timing of principal payments, including prepayments, repurchases, defaults and liquidations, the pass-through or coupon rate and interest rates. Additional factors that may affect our reported interest income on our securities include interest payment shortfalls due to delinquencies on the underlying mortgage loans and the timing and magnitude of credit losses on the mortgage loans underlying the securities that are impacted by, among other things, the general condition of the real estate market, including competition for tenants and their related credit quality, and changes in market rental rates. These uncertainties and contingencies are difficult to predict and are subject to future events that may alter the assumptions.
 
Further, under the guidance of EITF 99-20-1, when, based on current information and events, there has been an adverse change in cash flows expected to be collected from those previously estimated, an other-than-temporary impairment is deemed to have occurred. A change in expected cash flows is considered adverse under the guidance of EITF 99-20-1 if the present value of the revised cash flows (taking into consideration both the timing and amount of cash flows expected to be collected) discounted using the current yield is less than the present value of the previously estimated remaining cash flows, adjusted for cash receipts during the intervening period. Under the guidance of FSP FAS 115-2, as defined below, should an other-than-temporary impairment be deemed to have occurred, the security is written down to fair value. The total other-than-temporary impairment is bifurcated into (i) the amount related to credit losses, and (ii) the amount related to all other factors. The portion of the other-than-temporary impairment related to credit losses is calculated by comparing the amortized cost of the security to the present value of cash flows expected to be collected, discounted at the security’s current yield, and is recognized through earnings on the consolidated statement of operations. The portion of the other-than-temporary impairment related to all other factors is recognized as a component of other comprehensive income/(loss) on the consolidated balance sheet. A portion of other-than-temporary impairments recognized through earnings is accreted back to the amortized cost basis of the security through interest income, while amounts recognized through other comprehensive income/(loss) are amortized over the life of the security with no impact on earnings.

From time to time we purchase securities and other investments in which we have a level of control over the issuing entity; we refer to these investments as controlling class investments. The presentation of controlling class investments in our consolidated financial statements is governed in part by FIN 46(R), which could require that certain controlling class investments be presented on a consolidated basis. Based upon the specific circumstances of certain of our securities that are controlling class investments and our interpretation of FIN 46(R), specifically the exemption for qualifying special purpose entities as defined under FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 140, “Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities,” or FAS 140, we have concluded that the entities that have issued the controlling class investments should not be presented on a consolidated basis. In 2008, the FASB issued Staff Position No. FAS 140-4 and FIN 46(R)-8, “Disclosures by Public Entities (Enterprises) about Transfers of Financial Assets and Interests in Variable Interest Entities,” or FSP 140-4, which requires additional disclosures for certain of our investments effective as of December 15, 2008. These disclosures are included in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements.
 
Loans Receivable, Provision for Loan Losses, Loans Held-for-Sale and Related Allowance
We purchase and originate commercial real estate debt and related instruments, or Loans, generally to be held as long-term investments at amortized cost. Management must periodically evaluate each of these Loans for possible impairment. Impairment is indicated when it is deemed probable that we will not be able to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the Loan. If a Loan were determined to be permanently impaired, we would write down the Loan through a charge to the provision for loan losses. Given the nature of our Loan portfolio and the underlying commercial real estate collateral, significant judgment on the part of management is required in determining permanent impairment and the resulting charge to the provision, which includes, but is not limited to, making assumptions regarding the value of the real estate that secures the loan. Each Loan in our portfolio is evaluated at least quarterly using our loan risk rating system which considers loan-to-value, debt yield, cash flow stability, exit plan, loan sponsorship, loan structure and other factors deemed necessary by management to assess the likelihood of delinquency or default. If we believe there is a potential for delinquency or default, a downside analysis is prepared to estimate the value of the collateral underlying our Loan, and a provision is recorded taking into consideration both the likelihood of delinquency or default and the estimated value of the underlying collateral. Actual losses, if any, could ultimately differ from these estimates.
 
Loans held-for-sale are carried at the lower of our amortized cost basis and fair value. A reduction in fair value of loans held-for-sale is recorded as a charge to our consolidated statement of operations as a valuation allowance on loans held-for-sale.
 
Deferred Financing Costs
The deferred financing costs which are included in prepaid expenses and other assets on our consolidated balance sheets include issuance costs related to our debt obligations and are amortized using the effective interest method or a method that approximates the effective interest method.
 
Repurchase Obligations
In certain circumstances, we have financed the purchase of investments from a counterparty through a repurchase agreement with that same counterparty. We currently record these investments in the same manner as other investments financed with repurchase agreements, with the investment recorded as an asset and the related borrowing under any repurchase agreement recorded as a liability on our consolidated balance sheets. Interest income earned on the investments and interest expense incurred on the repurchase obligations are reported separately on the consolidated statements of operations. In February 2008, the FASB issued FASB Staff Position 140-3, “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets and Repurchase Financing Transactions,” or FSP 140-3, which provides guidance on accounting for transfers of financial assets and repurchase financings. FSP 140-3 presumes that an initial transfer of a financial asset and a repurchase financing shall not be evaluated as a linked transaction and shall be evaluated separately under FAS 140. If the linked transaction does not meet the requirements for sale accounting, the linked transaction shall generally be accounted for as a forward contract, as opposed to the current presentation, where the purchased asset and the repurchase liability are reflected separately on the balance sheet.
 
FSP 140-3 is effective on a prospective basis for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008, with earlier application not permitted. Given that FSP 140-3 is to be applied prospectively, our adoption of FSP 140-3 on January 1, 2009 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements with respect to our existing transactions. New transactions entered into subsequently, which are subject to FSP 140-3, may be presented differently on our consolidated financial statements.

Interest Rate Derivative Financial Instruments
In the normal course of business, we use interest rate derivative financial instruments to manage, or hedge, cash flow variability caused by interest rate fluctuations. Specifically, we currently use interest rate swaps to effectively convert floating rate liabilities that are financing fixed rate assets, to fixed rate liabilities. The differential to be paid or received on these agreements is recognized on the accrual basis as an adjustment to the interest expense related to the attendant liability. The interest rate swap agreements are generally accounted for on a held-to-maturity basis, and, in cases where they are terminated early, any gain or loss is generally amortized over the remaining life of the hedged item. These swap agreements must be effective in reducing the variability of cash flows of the hedged items in order to qualify for the aforementioned hedge accounting treatment. Changes in value of effective cash flow hedges are reflected in our consolidated financial statements through accumulated other comprehensive income/(loss) and do not affect our net income. To the extent a derivative does not qualify for hedge accounting, and is deemed a non-hedge derivative, the changes in its value are included in net income.
 
To determine the fair value of interest rate derivative financial instruments, we use a third party derivative specialist to assist us in periodically valuing our interests.
 
Income Taxes
Our financial results generally do not reflect provisions for current or deferred income taxes on our REIT taxable income. Management believes that we operate in a manner that will continue to allow us to be taxed as a REIT and, as a result, we do not expect to pay substantial corporate level taxes (other than taxes payable by our taxable REIT subsidiaries which are accounted for in accordance with FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes,” or FAS 109). Many of these requirements, however, are highly technical and complex. If we were to fail to meet these requirements, we may be subject to federal, state and local income tax on current and past income, and we may also be subject to penalties.
 
In September 2006, the FASB issued Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109,” or FIN 48. This interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with FAS 109. This interpretation prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.
 
Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation
We account for stock-based compensation in accordance with FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R) “Share Based Payment,” or FAS 123(R). Upon adoption of FAS 123(R), as of January 1, 2006, we have elected to utilize the modified prospective method, and there was no impact from this adoption. Compensation expense for the time vesting of stock-based compensation grants is recognized on the accelerated attribution method and compensation expense for performance vesting of stock-based compensation grants is recognized on a straight line basis. Compensation expense relating to stock-based compensation is recognized in net income using a fair value measurement method, which we determine with the assistance of a third-party appraisal firm.
 
The fair value of the restricted shares is measured on the grant date using a Monte Carlo simulation to estimate the probability of the market vesting conditions being satisfied. The Monte Carlo simulation is run approximately 100,000 times. For each simulation, the payoff is calculated at the settlement date, and is then discounted to the grant date at a risk-free interest rate. The average of the values over all simulations is the expected value of the restricted shares on the grant date. The valuation is performed in a risk-neutral framework, so no assumption is made with respect to an equity risk premium. Significant assumptions used in the valuation include an expected term and stock price volatility, an estimated risk-free interest rate and an estimated dividend growth rate.
 
Estimates of fair value are not intended to predict actual future events or the value ultimately realized by employees who receive equity awards, and subsequent events are not indicative of the reasonableness of the original estimates of fair value made by us.

Comprehensive Income / (Loss)
We comply with the provisions of the FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income,” or FAS 130, in reporting comprehensive income and its components in the full set of general purpose financial statements. Total comprehensive loss was ($71.5) million and ($20.1) million, for the six months ended June 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively. The primary components of comprehensive loss other than net income/(loss) are the unrealized gains/(losses) on derivative financial instruments and the component of other-than-temporary impairments on securities recognized in other comprehensive income/(loss). As of June 30, 2009, accumulated other comprehensive loss was ($35.2) million, comprised of net unrealized gains on securities previously classified as available-for-sale of $6.1 million, other-than-temporary impairments on securities of ($7.7) million, net unrealized losses on cash flow swaps of ($33.8) million, and $311,000 of net deferred realized gains on the settlement of cash flow swaps.
 
Earnings per Share of Common Stock
Earnings per share of common stock are presented based on the requirements of the FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128, “Earnings per Share,” or FAS 128. Basic EPS is computed based on the net earnings allocable to common stock and stock units divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and stock units outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS is based on the net earnings allocable to common stock and stock units, divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and stock units and potentially dilutive common stock options and warrants.
 
Use of Estimates
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 consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may ultimately differ from those estimates.
 
Reclassifications
Certain reclassifications have been made in the presentation of the prior period consolidated financial statements to conform to the June 30, 2009 presentation.
 
Segment Reporting
We operate in two reportable segments. We have an internal information system that produces performance and asset data for the two segments along service lines.
 
The “Balance Sheet Investment” segment includes our portfolio of interest earning assets (including our co-investments in investment management vehicles) and the financing thereof.
 
The “Investment Management” segment includes the investment management activities of our wholly-owned investment management subsidiary, CT Investment Management Co. LLC, or CTIMCO, and its subsidiaries. CTIMCO is a taxable REIT subsidiary and serves as the investment manager of Capital Trust, Inc., all of our investment management vehicles and all of our CDOs, and serves as senior servicer and special servicer on certain of our investments and for third parties.
 
Goodwill
Goodwill represents the excess of acquisition costs over the fair value of net assets of businesses acquired. Under the guidance of FASB Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets,” or FAS 142, goodwill is reviewed, at least annually, in the fourth quarter to determine if there is an impairment at a reporting unit level, or more frequently if an indication of impairment exists. During the second quarter of 2009, we completely impaired goodwill, as described in Note 8. No impairment charges for goodwill were recorded during the year ended December 31, 2008.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements,” or FAS 157. FAS 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Specifically, FAS 157 defines fair value based on exit price, or the price that would be received to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Our assets and liabilities which are measured at fair value are indicated as such in the respective notes to the consolidated financial statements, and are discussed in Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In March 2008, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 161, “Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities—an amendment of FASB Statement No. 133,” or FAS 161. FAS 161 requires enhanced disclosures about an entity’s derivative and hedging activities, with the goal of improving the transparency of financial reporting. FAS 161 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2008. FAS 161 encourages, but does not require, comparative disclosures for earlier periods at initial adoption. The adoption of FAS 161 on January 1, 2009, did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. The required disclosures are included in Note 11 to the consolidated financial statements.

In June 2008, the FASB issued Staff Position EITF 03-6-1, “Determining Whether Instruments Granted in Share-Based Payment Transactions Are Participating Securities,” or FSP EITF 03-6-1. Under the guidance of FSP EITF 03-6-1, unvested share-based awards that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents are considered participating securities and shall be included in the computation of earnings-per-share, or EPS, pursuant to the two-class method. FSP EITF 03-6-1 was effective for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2008, with the requirement that any prior-period EPS presented in future consolidated financial statements be adjusted retrospectively to conform to current guidance. We currently present and have historically presented EPS based on both restricted and unrestricted shares of our class A common stock. Accordingly, the adoption of FSP EITF 03-6-1 as of January 1, 2009 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
 
In April 2009, the FASB issued three concurrent Staff Positions, which included: (i) Staff Position No. FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, “Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments,” or FSP FAS 115-2, (ii) Staff Position No. FAS 157-4, “Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for an Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly,” or FSP FAS 157-4, and (iii) Staff Position No. FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, “Interim Disclosures About Fair Value of Financial Instruments, or FSP FAS 107-1. All three of these FASB Staff Positions are effective for periods ending after June 15, 2009, with earlier adoption permitted for periods ending after March 15, 2009. The adoption of FSP FAS 115-2, FSP FAS 157-4 and FSP FAS 107-1 is required to occur concurrently. Accordingly, we adopted all three of these standards as of January 1, 2009.
 
As discussed above, FSP FAS 115-2 provides additional guidance for other-than-temporary impairments on debt securities. In addition to existing guidance, under FSP FAS 115-2, an other-than-temporary impairment is deemed to exist if an entity does not expect to recover the entire amortized cost basis of a security. As discussed above, FSP FAS 115-2 provides for the bifurcation of other-than-temporary impairments into (i) amounts related to credit losses which are recognized through earnings, and (ii) amounts related to all other factors which are recognized as a component of other comprehensive income. Further, FSP FAS 115-2 requires certain disclosures for securities, which are included in Note 3 to the consolidated financial statements. The adoption of FSP FAS 115-2 required a reassessment of all securities which were other-than-temporarily impaired as of January 1, 2009, the date of adoption, and resulted in a $2.2 million reclassification from the beginning balance of retained deficit to accumulated other comprehensive loss on the consolidated balance sheet.
 
FSP FAS 157-4 provides additional guidance for fair value measures under FAS 157 in determining if the market for an asset or liability is inactive and, accordingly, if quoted market prices may not be indicative of fair value. The adoption of FSP FAS 157-4 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
 
FSP FAS 107-1 extends the existing disclosure requirements related to the fair value of financial instruments to interim periods in addition to annual financial statements. The adoption of FSP FAS 107-1 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements. The disclosure requirements under FSP FAS 107-1 are included in Note 16 to the consolidated financial statements.
 
In May 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 165, “Subsequent Events,” or FAS 165. FAS 165 requires that, for listed companies, subsequent events be evaluated through the date that financial statements are issued, and that financial statements clearly disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. FAS 165 is effective for periods ending after June 15, 2009. The adoption of FAS 165 as of April 1, 2009 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
 
In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 166, “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets, an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140,” or FAS 166. FAS 166 amends various components of the guidance under FAS 140 governing sale accounting, including the recognition of assets obtained and liabilities assumed as a result of a transfer, and considerations of effective control by a transferor over transferred assets. In addition, FAS 166 removes the exemption for qualifying special purpose entities from the guidance of FIN 46(R), as amended by FAS 167 discussed below. FAS 166 is effective for the first annual reporting period that begins after November 15, 2009, with early adoption prohibited. While the amended guidance governing sale accounting is applied on a prospective basis, the removal of the qualifying special purpose entity exception will require us to evaluate certain entities for consolidation under FAS 167, as defined below. While we are currently evaluating the effect of adoption of FAS 166, we currently believe that the presentation of our consolidated financial statements may significantly change prospectively upon adoption.

In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 167, “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R),” or FAS 167, which amends guidance in FIN 46(R) for determining whether an entity is a variable interest entity, or VIE, and requires the performance of a qualitative rather than a quantitative analysis to determine the primary beneficiary of a VIE. Under this guidance, an entity would be required to consolidate a VIE if it has (i) the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance and (ii) the obligation to absorb losses of the VIE or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could be significant to the VIE. FAS 167 is effective for the first annual reporting period that begins after November 15, 2009, with early adoption prohibited. While we are currently evaluating the effect of adoption of FAS 167, we currently believe that the presentation of our consolidated financial statements may significantly change prospectively upon adoption.
 
In June 2009, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 168, “The FASB Accounting Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, a replacement of FASB Statement No. 162,” or FAS 168. FAS 168 establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, or the Codification, as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP, and states that all guidance contained in the Codification carries equal level of authority. Rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, under federal securities laws are also sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The Codification does not change GAAP, however it does change the way in which it is to be researched and referenced. FAS 168 is effective for financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. We do not expect the adoption of FAS 168 to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

As detailed in Note 2, on August 4, 2005, pursuant to the provisions of FAS 115, we changed the accounting classification of our then portfolio of securities from available-for-sale to held-to-maturity. While we typically account for the securities in our portfolio on a held-to-maturity basis, under certain circumstances we will account for securities on an available-for-sale basis. As of both June 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, we had no securities classified as available-for-sale. As defined in FSP FAS 115-2, the amortized cost basis of our securities excludes from book value (i) amounts related to mark-to-market adjustments on securities previously classified as available-for-sale and (ii) the portion of other-than-temporary impairments not related to credit losses. The amortized cost basis of our securities portfolio was $828.2 million (of which $657.5 million related to CMBS and $170.7 million related to CDOs and other securities) as of June 30, 2009.
 
Quarterly, we reevaluate our securities portfolio to determine if there has been an other-than-temporary impairment based upon expected future cash flows. As a result of this evaluation, under the guidance of EITF 99-20-1, we believe that there has been an adverse change in expected cash flows for one of the securities in our portfolio and, therefore, recognized an aggregate gross other-than-temporary impairment of $4.0 million during the three months ended June 30, 2009. Of this total other-than-temporary impairment, all $4.0 million is related to credit losses, as defined under FSP FAS 115-2, and has been recorded through earnings. During the first quarter of 2009, we recorded a gross other-than-temporary impairment of $14.6 million, of which $9.0 million was related to credit losses and recorded through earnings, and $5.6 million was related to other factors and recorded as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income/(loss) on our consolidated balance sheet with no impact on earnings.

To determine the component of the gross other-than-temporary impairment related to credit losses, we compare the amortized cost basis of each other-than-temporarily impaired security to the present value of its revised expected cash flows, discounted using its pre-impairment yield. Significant judgment of management is required in this analysis that includes, but is not limited to, assumptions regarding the collectability of principal and interest, net of related expenses, on the underlying loans. Other factors considered in determining the component of other-than-temporary impairments related to credit losses include current subordination levels at both the individual loans which serve as collateral under our securities and at the securities themselves, and the current unamortized discounts or premiums on our securities.
 
The following table summarizes activity related to the amount of other-than-temporary impairments related to credit losses during the six months ended June 30, 2009 (in thousands):

Represents a reclassification to other comprehensive income of other-than-temporary impairments on securities which were previously recorded in earnings. As discussed in Note 2, upon adoption of FSP FAS 115-2 these impairments were reassessed and determined to be related to factors other than credit losses.
 
Certain of our securities are carried at values in excess of their fair values. This difference can be caused by, among other things, changes in interest rates, changes in credit spreads, realized/unrealized losses in the underlying collateral and general market conditions. As of June 30, 2009, 67 securities with an aggregate carrying value of $793.7 million were carried at values in excess of their fair values. Fair value for these securities was $484.6 million as of June 30, 2009. In total, as of June 30, 2009, we had 77 investments in securities with an aggregate carrying value of $826.6 million that have an estimated fair value of $525.1 million, including 66 investments in CMBS with an estimated fair value of $422.1 million and 11 investments in CDOs and other securities with an estimated fair value of $103.0 million (these valuations do not include the value of interest rate swaps entered into in conjunction with the purchase/financing of these investments). We determine fair values using third party dealer assessments of value, supplemented in certain cases with our own internal estimations of fair value. We regularly examine our securities portfolio and have determined that, despite these changes in fair value, our expectations of future cash flows have only changed adversely for seven securities in our portfolio since our last annual financial report, as of December 31, 2008. As noted above, we have therefore recognized an aggregate gross other-than-temporary impairment of $18.6 million for these assets during the six months ended June 30, 2009.
 
Our estimation of cash flows expected to be generated by our securities portfolio is based upon an internal review of the underlying mortgage loans securing our investments both on an absolute basis and compared to our initial underwriting for each investment. Our efforts are supplemented by third party research reports, third party market assessments and our dialogue with market participants. As of June 30, 2009 we do not intend to sell our securities, nor do we believe it is more likely than not that we will be required to sell our securities before recovery of their amortized cost bases, which may be at maturity. This, combined with our assessment of cash flows, is the basis for our conclusion that these investments are not impaired despite the differences between estimated fair value and book value. We attribute the difference between book value and estimated fair value to the current market dislocation and a general negative bias against structured financial products such as CMBS and CDOs.

Our securities portfolio includes investments in three entities that are, or could potentially be construed to be, variable interest entities, or VIEs, as defined in FIN 46(R). In each of these three cases, we own less than 50% of the variable interest, are not the primary beneficiary as defined in FIN 46(R) and, therefore, do not consolidate the operations of the entity in our consolidated financial statements. As of June 30, 2009, the aggregate carrying value of these three assets recorded as part of our securities portfolio on our balance sheet was $70.1 million. These entities have direct and synthetic exposure to real estate debt and securities in the aggregate amount of $1.7 billion that is financed by the issuance of CDOs to third parties. We have limited control over the operation of these entities and have not provided, nor are obligated to provide any financial support to any of these entities. One of the three entities was sponsored by us. Our maximum exposure to loss as a result of our involvement with these entities is $78.7 million, the principal amount of our investments.

Quarterly, management reevaluates the provision for loan losses based upon our current portfolio of loans. Each loan in our portfolio is evaluated using our loan risk rating system which considers loan-to-value, debt yield, cash flow stability, exit plan, loan sponsorship, loan structure and other factors necessary to, among other things, assess the likelihood of delinquency or default. If we believe that there is a potential for delinquency or default, a downside analysis is prepared to estimate the value of the collateral underlying our loan, and a provision is recorded taking into consideration both the likelihood of delinquency or default and the estimated value of the underlying collateral.
 
As of June 30, 2009, we had provisions for loan losses on 11 loans with an aggregate net book value of $64.3 million ($185.7 million gross carrying value, net of a $121.4 million provision). These include one loan with a principal balance of $11.1 million which is current in its interest payments, against which we have recorded a $1.7 million provision, as well as ten loans which are delinquent on contractual payments with an aggregate gross carrying value of $174.8 million, against which we have recorded a $119.9 million provision.
 
In some cases our loan originations are not fully funded at closing, creating an obligation for us to make future fundings, which we refer to as Unfunded Loan Commitments. Typically, Unfunded Loan Commitments are part of construction and transitional loans. As of June 30, 2009, our six Unfunded Loan Commitments totaled $13.5 million. Of the total Unfunded Loan Commitments, $9.0 million will only be funded when and/or if the borrower meets certain performance hurdles with respect to the underlying collateral. As of June 30, 2009, $5.6 million of the Unfunded Loan Commitments relates to a loan classified as held-for-sale, as described in Note 5.

Loans Held-for-Sale, net
 
As of June 30, 2009, we were in discussions with the borrower under one loan to settle their obligation at a discount. This loan has a gross carrying value of $14.4 million and a net carrying value of $12.0 million as of June 30, 2009, and is classified as held-for-sale.
 
On April 6, 2009, one loan which had previously been classified as held-for-sale was transferred to the secured lender, Lehman Brothers, in satisfaction of our obligations under our secured borrowing facility.
 
As of December 31, 2008, we had four loans with an aggregate gross carrying value of $140.4 million and a net carrying value of $92.2 million classified as held-for-sale. These loans served as collateral under our repurchase agreements with UBS and Goldman Sachs and were classified as held-for-sale at that time due to the termination of these agreements during the first quarter of 2009, as described in Note 9. Following the consummation of the transactions with UBS and Goldman Sachs, all of the loans previously classified as held-for-sale were transferred to the respective lender.

Loans held-for-sale are carried at the lower of our amortized cost basis and fair value. As of June 30, 2009, we had recorded a valuation allowance of $2.4 million against the remaining loan. We determined the valuation allowance on loans held-for-sale based upon transactions which are expected to occur in the near future.
 
6.
Real Estate Held-for-Sale
 
In 2008, we, together with our co-lender, foreclosed on a loan secured by a multifamily property, and took title to the collateral securing the original loan. At the time the foreclosure occurred, the loan had a book balance of $11.9 million which was reclassified as Real Estate Held-for-Sale (also referred to as Real Estate Owned) on our consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2008 to reflect our ownership interest in the property. Since that time, we have received $564,000 of accumulated cash from the property, which has been recorded as a reduction to our basis in the asset. We have recorded an aggregate $4.2 million impairment since the time of foreclosure to reflect the property at fair value as of June 30, 2009. Subsequent to quarter-end, in July 2009, we sold this asset for $7.1 million, our book value, and accordingly we did not record a material gain or loss on the sale.

Equity Investment in Unconsolidated Subsidiaries
 
Our equity investments in unconsolidated subsidiaries consist primarily of our co-investments in investment management vehicles that we sponsor and manage. As of June 30, 2009, we had co-investments in two such vehicles, Fund III, in which we have a 4.7% investment, and CTOPI, in which we have a 4.6% investment. In addition to our co-investments, we record capitalized costs associated with these vehicles in equity investments in unconsolidated subsidiaries.
