Lennar Corporation and Subsidiaries
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(unaudited)
(1)
Basis of Presentation
Basis of Consolidation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Lennar Corporation and all subsidiaries, partnerships and other entities in which Lennar Corporation has a controlling interest and VIEs (see Note 15) in which Lennar Corporation is deemed to be the primary beneficiary (the “Company”). The Company’s investments in both unconsolidated entities in which a significant, but less than controlling, interest is held and in VIEs in which the Company is not deemed to be the primary beneficiary, are accounted for by the equity method. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended November 30, 2012. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for the fair presentation of the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been made.
The Company has historically experienced, and expects to continue to experience, variability in quarterly results. The condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
Rialto Management Fees Revenue
The Rialto Investments segment provides services to a variety of legal entities and investment vehicles such as funds, joint ventures, co-invests, and other private equity structures to manage their respective investments. As a result, Rialto earns and receives management fees, underwriting fees and due diligence fees. These fees related to the Rialto Investments segment are included in Rialto Investments revenue and are recorded over the period in which the services are performed, fees are determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. Rialto receives investment management fees from investment vehicles based on 1) a percentage of committed capital during the commitment period and after the commitment period ends and 2) a percentage of drawn commitments less the portion of such drawn commitments utilized to acquire investments that have been sold (in whole or in part) or liquidated (except to the extent such drawn commitments are subsequently reinvested in other investments) or completely written off. Fees earned for underwriting and due diligence services are based on actual costs incurred. In certain situations, Rialto may earn additional fees when the return on assets managed exceeds contractually established thresholds. Such revenue is only booked when the contract terms are met, the contract is at, or near, completion and the amounts are known and collectability is reasonably assured. Since such revenue is recognized at the end of the life of the investment vehicle, after substantially all of the assets have been sold and investment gains and losses realized, the possibility of claw backs is limited. The Company believes the way it records Rialto Investments' management fees revenue is a significant accounting policy because it represents a significant portion of the Rialto Investments segment's revenues and is expected to continue to grow in the future as the segment manages more assets.
Rialto Mortgage Finance
Loans held-for-sale and Derivative Instruments – The originated mortgage loans are classified as Loans held-for-sale on the condensed consolidated balance sheet and are recorded at fair value. The Company elected the fair value option for its loans held-for-sale in accordance with ASC Topic 825, Financial Instruments, which permits entities to measure various financial instruments and certain other items at fair value on a contract-by-contract basis. Management believes that carrying loans held-for-sale at fair value improves financial reporting by mitigating volatility in reported earnings caused by measuring the fair value of the loans and the derivative instruments used to economically hedge them without having to apply complex hedge accounting provisions. Changes in fair values of the loans and the derivative instruments are reflected in Rialto Investments' revenues in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. Interest income on these loans is calculated based on the interest rate of the loan and is recorded within Rialto Investments' revenues in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. Substantially all of the mortgage loans originated are sold within a short period of time in a securitization on a servicing released, non-recourse basis; although, the Company remains liable for certain limited industry-standard representations and warranties related to loan sales.
In the normal course of business, the Company uses derivative financial instruments as a hedge to these loans during the period from when the Company has originated the loan until the time in which the loan is sold. These derivatives are used for risk management purposes to reduce its exposure to fluctuations in mortgage-related interest rates as well as lessen its credit

risk. The Company hedges its interest rate exposure by entering into interest rate swap futures which had a notional outstanding balance of $195.7 million as of August 31, 2013. Credit exposure is managed at a portfolio level by entering into credit default swaps. As of August 31, 2013, Rialto had a notional outstanding balance of $170.0 million, consisting of both single “A”, “AAA” and “BBB” rated CMBX swaps. The Company does not enter into or hold derivatives for trading or speculative purposes. The Company believes the way it records Rialto Investments' revenues related to its loans held-for-sale is a significant accounting policy because while it currently represents a small portion of the Rialto Investments' revenues, it is expected to continue to grow in the future as the segment grows its mortgage finance business.
Reclassifications/Revisions
Subsequent to the issuance of the November 30, 2012 consolidated financial statements, the Company determined it needed to revise its disclosures and presentations with respect to the supplemental financial information included in Note 17 and filed an amended Form 10-K for the year ended November 30, 2012 and Form 10-Q for the three months ended February 28, 2013. These revisions did not affect the Company's consolidated financial statements and relate solely to transactions between Lennar Corporation and its subsidiaries and only impact the Supplemental Consolidating Financial Statements that are presented as supplemental information. As such, the supplemental financial information included in Note 17 has been revised for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012.
Certain prior year amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform with the 2013 presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on the Company's results of operations.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Operating and Reporting Segments
The Company’s operating segments are aggregated into reportable segments, based primarily upon similar economic characteristics, geography and product type. The Company’s reportable segments consist of:
(1) Homebuilding East
(2) Homebuilding Central
(3) Homebuilding West
(4) Homebuilding Southeast Florida
(5) Homebuilding Houston
(6) Lennar Financial Services
(7) Rialto Investments
Information about homebuilding activities in states which are not economically similar to other states in the same geographic area is grouped under “Homebuilding Other,” which is not considered a reportable segment.
Evaluation of segment performance is based primarily on operating earnings (loss) before income taxes. Operations of the Company’s homebuilding segments primarily include the construction and sale of single-family attached and detached homes, as well as the purchase, development and sale of residential land directly and through the Company’s unconsolidated entities. Operating earnings (loss) for the homebuilding segments consist of revenues generated from the sales of homes and land, equity in earnings (loss) from unconsolidated entities and other income (expense), net, less the cost of homes sold and land sold, selling, general and administrative expenses and other interest expense of the segment.
The Company’s reportable homebuilding segments and all other homebuilding operations not required to be reported separately have operations located in:
East: Florida(1), Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia
Central: Arizona, Colorado and Texas(2) 
West: California and Nevada
Southeast Florida: Southeast Florida
Houston: Houston, Texas
Other: Illinois, Minnesota, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington

8



(1)Florida in the East reportable segment excludes Southeast Florida, which is its own reportable segment.
(2)Texas in the Central reportable segment excludes Houston, Texas, which is its own reportable segment.
Operations of the Lennar Financial Services segment include mortgage financing, title insurance and closing services for both buyers of the Company’s homes and others. The Lennar Financial Services segment sells substantially all of the loans it originates within a short period in the secondary mortgage market, the majority of which are sold on a servicing released, non-recourse basis. After the loans are sold, the Company retains potential liability for possible claims by purchasers that it breached certain limited industry-standard representations and warranties in the loan sale agreements. Lennar Financial Services’ operating earnings consist of revenues generated primarily from mortgage financing, title insurance and closing services, less the cost of such services and certain selling, general and administrative expenses incurred by the segment. The Lennar Financial Services segment operates generally in the same states as the Company’s homebuilding operations, as well as in other states.
Operations of the Rialto Investments (“Rialto”) segment include sourcing, underwriting, pricing, managing and ultimately monetizing real estate and real estate related assets, as well as providing similar services to others in markets across the country. Rialto’s operating earnings consists of revenues generated primarily from accretable interest income associated with portfolios of real estate loans acquired in partnership with the FDIC and other portfolios of real estate loans and assets acquired, asset management, due diligence and underwriting fees derived from the segment's Real Estate Funds, fees for sub-advisory services, revenues generated by the new Rialto Mortgage Finance ("RMF") business, which was formed to originate and securitize five, seven and ten year commercial first mortgage loans, other income (expense), net, consisting primarily of net gains upon foreclosure of real estate owned (“REO”) and net gains on sale of REO, and equity in earnings from unconsolidated entities, less the costs incurred by the segment for managing portfolios, REO expenses and other general administrative expenses.
Each reportable segment follows the same accounting policies described in Note 1 – “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” to the consolidated financial statements in the Company’s Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended November 30, 2012, as well as the Rialto management fees revenue and Rialto Mortgage Finance ("RMF") loans held-for sale significant accounting policies described in Note 1 of this Form 10-Q. Operational results of each segment are not necessarily indicative of the results that would have occurred had the segment been an independent, stand-alone entity during the periods presented.

As of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company’s recorded investments in Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities were $755.3 million and $565.4 million, respectively, while the underlying equity in Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities partners’ net assets as of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 was $1.0 billion and $681.6 million, respectively, primarily as a result of the Company buying the interest in a partner's equity in a Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity at a discount to book value and contributing non-monetary assets to an unconsolidated entity with a higher fair value than book value.
In fiscal 2007, the Company sold a portfolio of land to a strategic land investment venture with Morgan Stanley Real Estate Fund II, L.P., an affiliate of Morgan Stanley & Co., Inc., in which the Company has approximately a 20% ownership interest and 50% voting rights. Due to the nature of the Company’s continuing involvement, the transaction did not qualify as a sale by the Company under GAAP; thus, the inventory has remained on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet in consolidated inventory not owned. As of both August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the portfolio of land (including land development costs) of $238.3 million and $264.9 million, respectively, is also reflected as inventory in the summarized condensed financial information related to Lennar Homebuilding’s unconsolidated entities.
The Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities in which the Company has investments usually finance their activities with a combination of partner equity and debt financing. In some instances, the Company and its partners have guaranteed debt of certain unconsolidated entities.

During the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company’s maximum recourse exposure related to indebtedness of Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities decreased by $25.6 million, as a result of $5.9 million paid by the Company primarily through capital contributions to unconsolidated entities and $19.7 million primarily related to the joint ventures selling assets and other transactions.
The recourse debt exposure in the previous table represents the Company’s maximum recourse exposure to loss from guarantees and does not take into account the underlying value of the collateral or the other assets of the borrowers that are available to repay the debt or to reimburse the Company for any payments on its guarantees. The Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities that have recourse debt have a significant amount of assets and equity.

In addition, in most instances in which the Company has guaranteed debt of a Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity, the Company’s partners have also guaranteed that debt and are required to contribute their share of the guarantee payments. Historically, the Company has had repayment guarantees and/or maintenance guarantees. In a repayment guarantee, the Company and its venture partners guarantee repayment of a portion or all of the debt in the event of default before the lender would have to exercise its rights against the collateral. In the event of default, if the Company’s venture partner does not have adequate financial resources to meet its obligations under the reimbursement agreement, the Company may be liable for more than its proportionate share, up to its maximum recourse exposure, which is the full amount covered by the joint and several guarantee. The maintenance guarantees only apply if the value of the collateral (generally land and improvements) is less than a specified percentage of the loan balance. If the Company is required to make a payment under a maintenance guarantee to bring the value of the collateral above the specified percentage of the loan balance, the payment would constitute a capital contribution or loan to the Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity and increase the Company’s investment in the unconsolidated entity and its share of any funds the unconsolidated entity distributes. As of both August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company does not have any maintenance guarantees related to its Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities.
In connection with many of the loans to Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entities, the Company and its joint venture partners (or entities related to them) have been required to give guarantees of completion to the lenders. Those completion guarantees may require that the guarantors complete the construction of the improvements for which the financing was obtained. If the construction is to be done in phases, the guarantee generally is limited to completing only the phases as to which construction has already commenced and for which loan proceeds were used.
During the three months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, there were $5.1 million and $1.3 million, respectively, of loan paydowns by Lennar relating to recourse debt. During both the three months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, there were no payments under completion guarantees.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, there were $6.0 million and $5.2 million, respectively, of loan paydowns by Lennar relating to recourse debt. During both the nine months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, there were no payments under completion guarantees.
As of August 31, 2013, the fair values of the repayment guarantees and completion guarantees were not material. The Company believes that as of August 31, 2013, in the event it becomes legally obligated to perform under a guarantee of the obligation of a Lennar Homebuilding unconsolidated entity due to a triggering event under a guarantee, most of the time the

13



collateral should be sufficient to repay at least a significant portion of the obligation or the Company and its partners would contribute additional capital into the venture. In certain instances, the Company has placed performance letters of credit and surety bonds with municipalities for its joint ventures (see Note 11).

The Company has a stock repurchase program which permits the purchase of up to 20 million shares of its outstanding common stock. During both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013 and August 31, 2012, there were no repurchases of common stock under the stock repurchase program. As of August 31, 2013, 6.2 million shares of common stock could be repurchased in the future under the program.
During the three months ended August 31, 2013, treasury stock increased by an immaterial amount of shares of Class A common stock. During the three months ended August 31, 2012, treasury stock had no changes in the amount of shares of Class A Common stock. During the nine months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, treasury stock decreased by approximately 0.4 million and 0.3 million, respectively, of shares of Class A common stock due to activity related to the Company's equity compensation plan.

Income Taxes
A reduction of the carrying amounts of deferred tax assets by a valuation allowance is required, if based on the available evidence, it is more likely than not that such assets will not be realized. Accordingly, the need to establish valuation allowances for deferred tax assets is assessed each reporting period by the Company based on the more-likely-than-not realization threshold criterion. In the assessment of the need for a valuation allowance, appropriate consideration is given to all positive and negative evidence related to the realization of the deferred tax assets. This assessment considers, among other matters, the nature, frequency and severity of current and cumulative losses, actual earnings, forecasts of future profitability, the duration of statutory carryforward periods, the Company’s experience with loss carryforwards not expiring unused and tax planning alternatives.
During the year ended November 30, 2012, the Company concluded that it was more likely than not that the majority of its deferred tax assets would be utilized. This conclusion was based on a detailed evaluation of all relevant evidence, both positive and negative as detailed in the Company's Form 10-K, as amended, for the year ended November 30, 2012. Accordingly, the Company reversed a majority of its valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets. As of November 30, 2012, the Company had a valuation allowance of $88.8 million, primarily related to state net operating loss ("NOL") carryforwards.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company concluded that it was more likely than not that a portion of its deferred tax assets would be utilized. This conclusion was based on additional positive evidence including actual and forecasted profitability, as well as the Company generating cumulative pre-tax earnings over a rolling four year period including the pre-tax earnings achieved during the second quarter of 2013. Accordingly, during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company reversed $0.7 million and $67.1 million, respectively, of its valuation allowance primarily against its state deferred tax assets. This reversal was partially offset by a tax provision of $67.9 million and $150.2 million, respectively, primarily related to pre-tax earnings during the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, resulting in a $67.2 million and $83.1 million provision for income taxes for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, respectively. As of August 31, 2013, the Company's remaining valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets was $20.4 million, which is primarily related to state net operating loss carryforwards that may expire due to short carryforward periods. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012, the Company reversed $44.0 million and $447.0 million, respectively, of its valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012, the Company recorded a tax benefit of $12.8 million and $416.6 million, respectively, primarily related to the reversal of the Company's valuation

allowance. As a result of the partial reversal of the valuation allowance against the Company's deferred tax assets in 2012 and 2013, the Company's effective tax rate is not reflective of its historical tax rate.
As of August 31, 2013, the Company's deferred tax assets, net, were $439.2 million, of which $458.3 million were deferred tax assets included in Lennar Homebuilding's other assets on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets, $4.7 million were deferred tax liabilities included in Lennar Financial Services segment's liabilities on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets and $14.4 million were deferred tax liabilities included in Rialto Investments segment's notes payable and other liabilities on the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets.
At August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company had federal tax effected NOL carryforwards totaling $182.6 million and $278.8 million, respectively, that may be carried forward up to 20 years to offset future taxable income and begin to expire in 2025. As of August 31, 2013, the Company needs to generate $809.7 million of pre-tax earnings in future periods to realize all of its federal NOL carryforwards and federal deductible temporary tax differences. At August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company had state tax effected NOL carryforwards totaling $162.6 million and $173.6 million, respectively, that may be carried forward from 5 to 20 years, depending on the tax jurisdiction, with losses expiring between 2013 and 2032. As of August 31, 2013, state tax effected NOL carryforwards totaling $7.9 million may expire over the next twelve months, if sufficient taxable income is not generated to utilize the net operating losses. At August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company had a valuation allowance of $18.3 million and $84.6 million, respectively, against its state NOL carryforwards because the Company believes it is more likely than not that a portion of its state NOL carryforwards will not be realized due to the limited carryforward periods in certain states.
At August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company had $10.5 million and $12.3 million, respectively, of gross unrecognized tax benefits. If the Company were to recognize its gross unrecognized tax benefits as of August 31, 2013, $6.8 million would affect the Company’s effective tax rate. The Company expects the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits to decrease by $1.6 million within twelve months as a result of anticipated settlements with various taxing authorities.
During the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company’s gross unrecognized tax benefits decreased by $1.8 million primarily as a result of state tax payments resulting from a previously settled IRS examination, partially offset by an increase due to a state tax allocation. The increase in gross unrecognized tax benefits related to a state tax allocation increased the Company's effective tax rate from 20.43% to 20.84%.
At August 31, 2013, the Company had $16.3 million accrued for interest and penalties, of which $1.0 million was recorded during the nine months ended August 31, 2013. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, the accrual for interest and penalties was reduced by $2.4 million and $5.2 million, respectively, primarily as a result of the payment of interest related to state tax payments resulting from a previously settled IRS examination. At November 30, 2012, the Company had $20.5 million accrued for interest and penalties.
The IRS is currently examining the Company’s federal income tax return for fiscal year 2011 and 2012 and certain state taxing authorities are examining various fiscal years. The final outcome of these examinations is not yet determinable. The statute of limitations for the Company’s major tax jurisdictions remains open for examination for fiscal year 2005 and subsequent years. The Company participates in the Compliance Assurance Process, "CAP," an IRS examination program. This program operates as a contemporaneous exam throughout the year in order to keep exam cycles current and achieve a higher level of compliance.

Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net earnings attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that then shared in the earnings of the Company.
All outstanding nonvested shares that contain non-forfeitable rights to dividends or dividend equivalents that participate in undistributed earnings with common stock are considered participating securities and are included in computing earnings per share pursuant to the two-class method. The two class method is an earnings allocation formula that determines earnings per share for each class of common stock and participating securities according to dividends or dividend equivalents and participation rights in undistributed earnings. The Company’s restricted common stock (“nonvested shares”) are considered participating securities.
Basic and diluted earnings per share were calculated as follows:

(2)
Loans held-for-sale relate to unsold loans carried at fair value.
(3)
Other assets include mortgage loan commitments carried at fair value of $10.8 million and $12.7 million as of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, respectively. In addition, other assets also includes forward contracts carried at fair value of $1.8 million as of August 31, 2013.
(4)
Other liabilities include $73.9 million and $76.1 million as of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, respectively, of certain of the Company’s self-insurance reserves related to general liability and workers’ compensation. Other liabilities also include forward contracts carried at fair value of $2.6 million as of November 30, 2012.
At August 31, 2013, the Lennar Financial Services segment had a 364-day warehouse repurchase facility with a maximum aggregate commitment of $100 million and an additional uncommitted amount of $100 million that matures in February 2014, a 364-day warehouse repurchase facility with a maximum aggregate commitment of $250 million that matures in July 2014, a 364-day warehouse repurchase facility with a maximum aggregate commitment of $150 million that matures in May 2014 (plus a $100 million accordion feature that is usable from 10 days prior to quarter-end through 20 days after quarter-end) and a 364-day warehouse facility with a maximum aggregate commitment of $60 million, that matures in November 2013. As of August 31, 2013, the maximum aggregate commitment and uncommitted amount under these facilities totaled $660 million and $100 million, respectively.
The Lennar Financial Services segment uses these facilities to finance its lending activities until the mortgage loans are sold to investors and expects the facilities to be renewed or replaced with other facilities when they mature. Borrowings under the facilities were $290.3 million and $458.0 million at August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, respectively, and were collateralized by mortgage loans and receivables on loans sold to investors but not yet paid for with outstanding principal balances of $395.9 million and $509.1 million at August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, respectively. If the facilities are not renewed, the borrowings under the lines of credit will be paid off by selling the mortgage loans held-for-sale to investors and by collecting on receivables on loans sold but not yet paid. Without the facilities, the Lennar Financial Services segment would have to use cash from operations and other funding sources to finance its lending activities.
The Lennar Financial Services segment sells substantially all of the loans it originates within a short period in the secondary mortgage market, the majority of which are sold on a servicing released, non-recourse basis. After the loans are sold, the Company retains potential liability for possible claims by purchasers that it breached certain limited industry-standard representations and warranties in the loan sale agreement. Since 2009, there has been an increased industry-wide effort by purchasers to defray their losses during unfavorable economic environments by purporting to have found inaccuracies related to sellers’ representations and warranties in particular loan sale agreements. The Company’s mortgage operations have established reserves for possible losses associated with mortgage loans previously originated and sold to investors. The Company establishes reserves for such possible losses based upon, among other things, an analysis of repurchase requests received, an estimate of potential repurchase claims not yet received and actual past repurchases and losses through the disposition of

18



affected loans, as well as previous settlements. While the Company believes that it has adequately reserved for known losses and projected repurchase requests, given the volatility in the mortgage industry and the uncertainty regarding the ultimate resolution of these claims, if either actual repurchases or the losses incurred resolving those repurchases exceed the Company’s expectations, additional recourse expense may be incurred. Loan origination liabilities are included in Lennar Financial Services’ liabilities in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

For Lennar Financial Services loans held-for-investment, net, a loan is deemed impaired when, based on current information and events, it is probable that the Company will be unable to collect all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement. Interest income is not accrued or recognized on impaired loans unless payment is received. Impaired loans are written-off if and when the loan is no longer secured by collateral. The total unpaid principal balance of the impaired loans as of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012 was $8.2 million and $7.3 million, respectively. At August 31, 2013, the recorded investment in the impaired loans with a valuation allowance was $4.1 million, net of an allowance of $4.1 million. At November 30, 2012, the recorded investment in the impaired loans with a valuation allowance was $2.9 million, net of an allowance of $4.4 million. The average recorded investment in impaired loans totaled $3.9 million and $3.5 million for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, respectively.

Loans Receivable
In February 2010, the Rialto segment acquired indirectly 40% managing member equity interests in two limited liability companies (“LLCs”), in partnership with the FDIC. The LLCs hold performing and non-performing loans formerly owned by 22 failed financial institutions and when the Rialto segment acquired its interests in the LLCs, the two portfolios consisted of approximately 5,500 distressed residential and commercial real estate loans (“FDIC Portfolios”). The FDIC retained 60% equity interests in the LLCs and provided $626.9 million of financing with 0% interest, which is non-recourse to the Company and the LLCs. As of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the notes payable balance was $110.0 million and $470.0 million, respectively; however, as of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, $78.0 million and $223.8 million, respectively, of cash collections on loans in excess of expenses were deposited in a defeasance account, established for the repayment of the notes payable, under the agreement with the FDIC. The funds in the defeasance account are being and will be used to retire the notes payable upon their maturity. During the nine months ended August 31, 2013, the LLCs retired $360.0 million principal amount of the notes payable under the agreement with the FDIC through the defeasance account.
The LLCs met the accounting definition of VIEs and since the Company was determined to be the primary beneficiary, the Company consolidated the LLCs. At August 31, 2013, these consolidated LLCs had total combined assets and liabilities of $880.0 million and $133.2 million, respectively. At November 30, 2012, these consolidated LLCs had total combined assets and liabilities of $1,236.4 million and $493.4 million, respectively.
In September 2010, the Rialto segment acquired approximately 400 distressed residential and commercial real estate loans (“Bank Portfolios”) and over 300 REO properties from three financial institutions. The Company paid $310 million for the distressed real estate and real estate related assets of which $124 million was financed through a 5-year senior unsecured note provided by one of the selling institutions of which $33.0 million of principal amount was retired in 2012. As of both August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, there was $90.9 million outstanding.

With regard to loans accounted for under ASC 310-30, Loans and Debt Securities Acquired with Deteriorated Credit Quality, (“ASC 310-30”), the Rialto segment estimated the cash flows, at acquisition, it expected to collect on the FDIC Portfolios and Bank Portfolios. In accordance with ASC 310-30, the difference between the contractually required payments and the cash flows expected to be collected at acquisition is referred to as the nonaccretable difference. This difference is neither accreted into income nor recorded on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheets. The excess of cash flows expected to be collected over the cost of the loans acquired is referred to as the accretable yield and is recognized in interest income over the remaining life of the loans using the effective yield method.
The Rialto segment periodically evaluates its estimate of cash flows expected to be collected on its FDIC Portfolios and Bank Portfolios. These evaluations require the continued use of key assumptions and estimates, similar to those used in the initial estimate of fair value of the loans to allocate purchase price. Subsequent changes in the estimated cash flows expected to be collected may result in changes in the accretable yield and nonaccretable difference or reclassifications from nonaccretable yield to accretable yield. Increases in the cash flows expected to be collected will generally result in an increase in interest income over the remaining life of the loan or pool of loans. Decreases in expected cash flows due to further credit deterioration will generally result in an impairment charge recognized as a provision for loan losses, resulting in an increase to the allowance for loan losses.

Additions primarily represent reclasses from nonaccretable yield to accretable yield on the portfolios. Deletions represent loan impairments and disposal of loans, which includes foreclosure of underlying collateral and result in the removal of the loans from the accretable yield portfolios.
When forecasted principal and interest cannot be reasonably estimated at the loan acquisition date, management classifies the loan as nonaccrual and accounts for these assets in accordance with ASC 310-10, Receivables (“ASC 310-10”). When a loan is classified as nonaccrual, any subsequent cash receipt is accounted for using the cost recovery method. In accordance with ASC 310-10, a loan is considered impaired when based on current information and events it is probable that all amounts due according to the contractual terms of the loan agreement will not be collected. Although these loans met the definition of ASC 310-10, these loans were not considered impaired relative to the Company’s recorded investment at the time of acquisition since they were acquired at a substantial discount to their unpaid principal balance. A provision for loan losses is recognized when the recorded investment in the loan is in excess of its fair value. The fair value of the loan is determined by using either

the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at the loan’s effective interest rate or the fair value of the collateral less estimated costs to sell.

The average recorded investment in impaired loans totaled approximately $29 million and $62 million for the nine months ended August 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
The loans receivable portfolios consist of loans acquired at a discount. Based on the nature of these loans, the portfolios are managed by assessing the risks related to the likelihood of collection of payments from borrowers and guarantors, as well as monitoring the value of the underlying collateral. The following are the risk categories for the loans receivable portfolios:
Accrual — Loans in which forecasted cash flows under the loan agreement, as it might be modified from time to time, can be reasonably estimated at the date of acquisition. The risk associated with loans in this category relates to the possible default by the borrower with respect to principal and interest payments and the possible decline in value of the underlying collateral and thus, both could cause a decline in the forecasted cash flows used to determine accretable yield income and the recognition of an impairment through an allowance for loan losses. As of August 31, 2013, the Company had an allowance on these loans of $20.1 million. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company recorded $3.3 million and $12.8 million, respectively, of provision for loan losses offset by charge-offs of $1.9 million and $4.9 million, respectively, upon resolution of the loans. During both the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012, the Company recorded $17.1 million of provision for loan losses offset by charge-offs of $3.0 million upon foreclosure of these loans. As of November 30, 2012, the Company had an allowance on these loans of $12.2 million.
Nonaccrual — Loans in which forecasted principal and interest could not be reasonably estimated at the date of acquisition. Although the Company believes the recorded investment balance will ultimately be realized, the risk of nonaccrual loans relates to a decline in the value of the collateral securing the outstanding obligation and the recognition of an impairment through an allowance for loan losses if the recorded investment in the loan exceeds the fair value of the collateral less estimated cost to sell. As of August 31, 2013 and November 30, 2012, the Company had an allowance on these loans of $0.9 million and $3.7 million, respectively. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, the Company recorded $0.1 million and $1.2 million, respectively, of provision for loan losses offset by charge-offs of $1.0 million and $4.0 million, respectively, upon foreclosure of the loans. During the three and nine months ended August 31, 2012, the Company recorded $3.2 million and $5.5 million, respectively, of provision for loan losses offset by charge-offs of $0.4 million and $3.3 million, respectively, upon foreclosure of the loans.

In order to assess the risk associated with each risk category, the Rialto segment evaluates the forecasted cash flows and the value of the underlying collateral securing loans receivable on a quarterly basis or when an event occurs that suggests a decline in the collateral’s fair value.
Real Estate Owned
The acquisition of properties acquired through, or in lieu of, loan foreclosure are reported within the condensed consolidated balance sheets as REO held-and-used, net and REO held-for-sale. When a property is determined to be held-and-used, net, the asset is recorded at fair value and depreciated over its useful life using the straight line method. When certain criteria set forth in ASC 360, Property, Plant and Equipment, are met, the property is classified as held-for-sale. When a real estate asset is classified as held-for-sale, the property is recorded at the lower of its cost basis or fair value less estimated costs to sell. The fair value of REO held-for-sale are determined in part by placing reliance on third party appraisals of the properties and/or internally prepared analyses of recent offers or prices on comparable properties in the proximate vicinity.
Upon the acquisition of REO through loan foreclosure, gains and losses are recorded in Rialto Investments other income (expense), net. The amount by which the recorded investment in the loan is less than the REO’s fair value (net of estimated cost to sell if held-for-sale), is recorded as an unrealized gain upon foreclosure. The amount by which the recorded investment in the loan is greater than the REO’s fair value (net of estimated cost to sell if held-for-sale) is generally recorded as a provision for loan losses.
At times, the Company may foreclose on a loan from an accrual loan pool in which the removal of the loan does not cause an overall decrease in the expected cash flows of the loan pool, and as such, no provision for loan losses is required to be recorded. However, the amount by which the recorded investment in the loan is greater than the REO’s fair value (net of estimated cost to sell if held-for-sale) is recorded as an unrealized loss upon foreclosure.
