HERZLIYA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optibase Ltd. (NASDAQ: OBAS) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
Revenues from fixed income real estate totaled $3.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, compared to revenues of $3.4 million for the first quarter of 2013 and $3.4 million for the second quarter of 2012.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net income was $898,000 or $0.23 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net income of $615,000 or $0.16 per basic and diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2012.
Weighted average shares outstanding used in the calculation for the periods were approximately 3.8 million basic and diluted shares.
As of June 30, 2013, we had cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and other financial investments, net, of $17.6 million, and shareholders' equity of $67.4 million, compared with $19 million, and $65.7 million, respectively, as of March 31, 2013.
Commenting on the quarter, CEO of Optibase, Amir Philips, said, “We are pleased with our second quarter operating results as our operating results continue proving our stability over the last period which is even more noticeable in today’s unexpected marketplace. Due to the fluctuation of the Swiss Franc against the USD, our financial expenses decreased this quarter compared to the previous quarter of 2013 and compared to the second quarter of 2012. Depending on the fluctuation of the Swiss Franc against the USD, our financial income, net may continue to fluctuate in the quarters to come.” Amir concluded, “We are still actively looking for additional investment opportunities and more recently have been looking into some opportunities in the German real estate market. Nevertheless, current economic conditions and the tightening of loan criteria by financial institutions may reduce the availability of favorable financing for new transactions and affect their attractiveness. For that matter, we are working to increase our available financial resources in way of cash resources and financial guaranties so we can finance such opportunities as we come across them.”
