Item 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the forward-looking statements disclaimer set forth at the beginning of this annual report, the risk factors set forth in Item 1A of this annual report, and our Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes to those statements set forth in Item 8 of this annual report.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Comparison of Years Ended December 31, 2012 and 2011

CONSOLIDATED

                                                        Year Ended
                                                       December 31,
                                                      2012       2011
              Consolidated Revenues                 $ 16,164   $ 14,542
              Loss From Continuing Operations       $ (4,956 ) $ (9,550 )
              Income From Discontinued Operations   $    354   $ 14,628
              Net Income (Loss)                     $ (4,602 ) $  5,078
              Net Income (Loss) Per Common Share    $  (0.25 ) $   0.27


Table of Contents

We reported net loss of $4.6 million or $0.25 per share for 2012 compared to net income of $5.1 million or $0.27 per share for 2011. Consolidated revenues for 2012 include the January 2012 sale of an 89-acre parcel in Upcountry Maui for $1.5 million. The lower loss from continuing operations in 2012 reflects improved performance from our business segments and continuing cost reduction efforts. Income from discontinued operations for 2011 included a gain of $15.1 million recognized in March 2011 from sale of the Bay Course.

REAL ESTATE

                                             Year Ended
                                            December 31,
                                           2012      2011
                         Revenues         $ 2,545   $ 1,070
                         Operating Loss   $  (338 ) $  (661 )

Revenues for 2012 include the January 2012 sale of an 89-acre parcel in Upcountry Maui for $1.5 million. We had no sales of real estate inventory in 2011. The other revenues included in this operating segment were real estate sales commissions from Kapalua Realty Company totaling $1.0 million for 2012 and $1.1 million for 2011.

Real estate development and sales are cyclical and depend on a number of factors. Results for one period are therefore not necessarily indicative of future performance trends in this segment.

LEASING

                                                  Year Ended
                                                 December 31,
                                               2012       2011
                    Revenues                  $ 5,806   $  5,144
                    Operating Profit (Loss)   $   428   $ (1,000 )

The increase in leasing revenues in 2012 is primarily due to improved operating performance of our resort tenants and new commercial space and agricultural land leases. The increase in operating profit for 2012 is attributed to lower general and administrative expenses and improved performance from outsourcing the management of our commercial property portfolio in 2011.

UTILITIES

                                                  Year Ended
                                                 December 31,
                                                2012      2011
                     Revenues                  $ 3,541   $ 3,418
                     Operating Profit (Loss)   $   624   $  (319 )

The increase in operating profit for 2012 is primarily due to lower general and administrative expenses and improved performance from the outsourcing of our utilities companies' operations in February 2012.

RESORT AMENITIES

                                             Year Ended
                                            December 31,
                                           2012      2011
                         Revenues         $ 4,228   $ 3,854
                         Operating Loss   $  (181 ) $  (803 )

Increased revenues in 2012 were due to higher spa service and treatment revenues and increased membership dues from growth in the Kapalua Club's membership base. Reduced operating losses for 2012 are primarily due to lower general and administrative expenses.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE

Year Ended
December 31,
2012 2011
General and Administrative $ 3,029 $ 6,271

General and administrative expenses are incurred at the corporate level and at the operating segment level. Results of operations presented above for the reportable operating segments include an allocation of a portion of the general and administrative expenses at the corporate level. Such allocations are made on the basis of our evaluation of the level of services provided to the operating segments.

Lower general and administrative expenses in 2012 were primarily due to reduced staffing levels, and lower professional services and outside consultant costs. General and administrative expenses for 2011 include a $1.5 million contribution of approximately 22 acres to Maui Preparatory Academy.

Selling and marketing expenses decreased from $792,000 in 2011 to $168,000 in 2012, as we discontinued operating certain businesses, and the lessees and licensees of our properties and trade names assumed the responsibility for marketing.

DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

Year Ended
December 31,
2012 2011
Income From Discontinued Operations Before Income Taxes $ 354 $ 14,628

Our former retail, golf and agriculture operations are reported as discontinued operations. Income from discontinued operations for 2011 includes a $15.1 million gain from the sale of the Bay Course. See Note 6 to Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 8 of this annual report.

INTEREST EXPENSE

Interest expense was $2.6 million for 2012 compared to $2.7 million for 2011, of which $300,000 was included in discontinued operations in 2011. Our average interest rates on borrowings was 4.7% for 2012, compared to 4.8% for 2011, and average borrowings were $47 million in 2012 compared to $45 million in 2011.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

At December 31, 2012, our total debt was $49.3 million compared to $45.5 million at December 31, 2011. At December 31, 2012, we had approximately $8.8 million available under our revolving line of credit and $829,000 in cash and cash equivalents.

Revolving Line of Credit with Wells Fargo

We have a $34.5 million revolving line of credit with Wells Fargo that was scheduled to mature on May 1, 2013. In February 2013, we exercised our option to extend the maturity date to May 1, 2014. Interest rates on borrowings are at LIBOR plus 3.8% and the line of credit is collateralized by approximately 880 acres of our real estate holdings at the Kapalua Resort. The line of credit agreement contains various representations, warranties, affirmative, negative and financial covenants and events of default customary for financings of this type. Financial covenants include a required minimum liquidity (as defined) of $4 million, maximum total liabilities of $175 million, and a limitation on new indebtedness. The credit agreement includes predetermined release prices for the real property securing the credit facility. There are no commitment fees on the unused portion of the revolving facility. Absent the sale of some of our real estate holdings or refinancing, we do not expect to be able to repay any significant amount of borrowings under the credit line.

As of December 31, 2012, we had $25.2 million of borrowings outstanding under our revolving line of credit, $8.8 million available borrowing capacity and irrevocable letters of credit totaling $0.5 million that were secured by the line of credit.

Term Loan with American AgCredit

We have a $24.1 million term loan with American AgCredit that was scheduled to mature on May 1, 2013. In February 2013, we amended our term loan agreement to extend the maturity date to May 1, 2014. The interest rate on this credit facility is based on the greater of 1.00% or the 30-day LIBOR rate, plus an applicable spread of 4.25%. The loan agreement provides for tiered reductions in the applicable spread to 3.75%, subject to corresponding reductions in the principal balance of the loan. The loan requires a mandatory principal repayment of $4.1 million by December 31, 2013. The loan agreement contains various representations, warranties, affirmative, negative and financial covenants and events of default customary for financings of this type. Financial covenants include a required minimum liquidity (as defined) of $4 million, maximum total liabilities of $175 million and a limitation on new indebtedness. It also requires mandatory principal repayments of 100% of the net proceeds of the sale of any real property pledged as collateral for the loan and tiered mandatory principal repayments based on predetermined percentages ranging from 10% to 75% of the net proceeds from the sale of non-collateralized real property. In accordance with this provision, we made a $353,000 principal repayment in January 2012, in conjunction with a sale of a non-collateralized real estate parcel in Upcountry Maui for $1.5 million. The loan is collateralized by approximately 3,100 acres of our real estate holdings in West Maui and Upcountry Maui. Absent the sale of some of our real estate holdings or refinancing, we do not expect to be able to pay the outstanding balance under the term loan on the maturity date.

Cash Flows

Net cash used in operating activities for 2012 was $3.8 million compared to $10.2 million in 2011. The decrease in net cash used in operating activities was primarily due to our initiatives to reduce cash commitments, mainly by implementing cost reduction measures.

During 2012, net borrowings from our Wells Fargo revolving line of credit were $4.1 million. In 2012, repayments of our American AgCredit term loan were $353,000. Interest paid in 2012 and 2011


Table of Contents

was $2.2 million and $2.0 million, respectively. Mandatory funding contributions to our retirement plans totaled $2.4 million for both 2012 and 2011.

Future Cash Inflows and Outflows

Our plans for 2013 include the possible sale of certain operating and non-operating real estate assets that could result in net cash proceeds which would be partially used to repay outstanding indebtedness and for general working capital. There can be no assurance that we will be able to sell any of our real estate assets on acceptable terms, if at all.

Our cash outlook for the next twelve months and our ability to continue to meet our loan covenants and to continue as a going concern is highly dependent on successfully implementing our business initiatives and selling real estate assets at acceptable prices. If we are unable to meet our loan covenants resulting in our loan borrowings becoming immediately due, we would not have sufficient liquidity to repay such outstanding borrowings.

We are subject to several commitments and contingencies that could negatively impact our future cash flows, including purchase commitments up to $35 million related to our investment in Bay Holdings to purchase the Amenities, an EEOC matter related to our discontinued agricultural operations, and funding requirements related to our defined benefit pension plans. These matters are further described in Notes 3, 8 and 14 to the accompanying consolidated financial statements. The aforementioned circumstances raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that we will be able to successfully achieve the initiatives discussed below in order to continue as a going concern.

In response to these circumstances, we continue to undertake significant efforts to generate cash flow by employing our real estate assets in leasing and other arrangements, by the sale of several real estate assets and by continued cost reduction efforts. We are in active negotiations with the lenders of the Residences at Kapalua Bay project to resolve our limited guarantees and purchase commitment for the Amenities.

Contributions to our defined benefit pension plans are expected to be approximately $2.4 million in 2013.

We do not anticipate any significant capital expenditures in 2013.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Our accounting policies are described in Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, Note 1 to our Consolidated Financial Statements (included in Item 8 of this annual report). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires the use of accounting estimates. Some of these estimates and assumptions involve a high level of subjectivity and judgment and therefore the impact of a change in these estimates and assumptions could materially affect the amounts reported in our financial statements. The accounting policies and estimates that we have identified as critical to the Consolidated Financial Statements are as follows:


Our investment in Bay Holdings was written down to zero at December 31, 2009 to recognize an other-than-temporary impairment and to record losses incurred by Bay Holdings in the third quarter of 2009. We and the other members of Bay Holdings have guaranteed to the lenders completion of the project and recourse with regard to certain acts, and we have recorded $4.1 million in other accrued liabilities on the consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2012 as our share of the completion and recourse guarantees. In determining the fair value of this investment, assessing whether any identified impairment was other-than-temporary, as well as estimating the liability for the completion and recourse guarantees, significant estimates were made and considerable judgment was involved. These estimates and judgments were based, in


Table of Contents

part, on our current and future evaluation of economic conditions in general, as well as Bay Holdings' current and future plans. These impairment calculations contain additional uncertainties because they also require management to make assumptions and apply judgments to, among others, estimates of future cash flows, probabilities related to various cash flow scenarios, and appropriate discount rates. The impairment losses recorded by Bay Holdings required Bay Holdings' management to estimate total sales revenues that will be received by the project, as well as estimating the number of buyers of units from which nonrefundable deposits have been received that will not close on the purchase of their units.


Our long-lived assets are reviewed for impairment if events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the long-lived asset may not be recoverable. These asset impairment loss analyses contain uncertainties because they require management to make assumptions and apply considerable judgments to, among others, estimates of the timing and amount of future cash flows, expected useful lives of the assets, uncertainty about future events, including changes in economic conditions, changes in operating performance, changes in the use of the assets, and ongoing costs of maintenance and improvements of the assets; thus, the accounting estimates may change from period to period. If management uses different assumptions or if different conditions occur in future periods, our financial condition or future operating results could be materially impacted.


Deferred development costs, principally predevelopment costs and offsite development costs related to various projects in the planning stages by our Real Estate segment, totaled $7.6 million at December 31, 2012. Based on our future development plans for the Kapalua Resort and other properties such as Pulelehua, and Hali`imaile Town, and the estimated value of these future projects, management has concluded that these deferred costs will be recoverable from future development projects. The volatility of this assumption arises because of the long-term nature of our development plans and the uncertainty of when or if certain parcels will be developed.


Determining pension expense for our two defined benefit pension plans utilizes actuarial estimates of employees' age at retirement, retirees' life span, the long term rate of return on investments and other factors. In addition, pension expense is sensitive to the discount rate utilized. This rate should be commensurate with the interest rate yield of a high quality corporate fixed income investment portfolio. These assumptions are subject to the risk of change as they require significant judgment and have inherent uncertainties that management or its consulting actuaries may not control or anticipate. As of December 31, 2012, the fair value of the assets of our defined benefit plans totaled approximately $42.5 million, compared with $39.1 million as of December 31, 2011. The recorded net pension liability was approximately $30.3 million as of December 31, 2012 compared to a net pension liability of $27.6 million as of December 31, 2011. The $2.7 million increase in net pension liability during 2012 was mainly attributed to a decline in the discount rate used to determine our pension obligations.


Stock-based compensation expense is calculated based on assumptions as to the expected life of the options, price volatility, risk-free interest rate and expected forfeitures. While management believes that the assumptions made are appropriate, current and future compensation expense could vary based on the assumptions used.


Management calculates the income tax provision, current and deferred income taxes along with the valuation allowance based upon various complex estimates and interpretations of income tax laws and regulations. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent that it is more likely than not that they will not be realized. To the extent we begin to generate taxable income in future years, and it is determined the valuation allowance is no longer required, the tax benefit for the remaining deferred tax assets will be recognized at such time.


Table of Contents

As of December 31, 2012, valuation allowances of $66.2 million have been established primarily for tax credits, net operating loss carry forwards, and accrued retirement benefits to reduce future tax benefits expected to be realized.


Our results of operations could be affected by significant litigation or contingencies adverse to the Company, including, but not limited to, liability claims, environmental matters, and contract terminations. We record accruals for legal matters when the information available indicates that it is probable that a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. We make adjustments to these accruals to reflect the impact and status of negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of counsel and other information and events that may pertain to a particular matter. Predicting the outcome of claims and lawsuits and estimating related costs and exposure involves substantial uncertainties that could cause actual costs to vary materially from those estimates. In making determinations of likely outcomes of litigation matters, we consider many factors. These factors include, but are not limited to, the nature of specific claims, our experience with similar types of claims, the jurisdiction in which the matter is filed, input from outside legal counsel, the likelihood of resolving the matter through alternative dispute resolution mechanisms and the matter's current status. A detailed discussion of significant litigation matters and contingencies is contained in Note 14 to our Consolidated Financial Statements in Item 8 of this annual report.

IMPACT OF INFLATION AND CHANGING PRICES

Most of the land owned by us was acquired from 1911 to 1932 and is carried at cost. At the Kapalua Resort, some of the fixed assets were constructed and placed in service in the mid-to-late 1970s. Depreciation expense would be considerably higher if fixed assets were stated at current cost.
