LUB Liquidating Trust Issues 2023 Annual Report

BOSTON, March 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — LUB Liquidating Trust (the “Company” or the “Trust”), which was formed to complete the monetization of the assets previously held by Luby’s, Inc., announced today it has filed its annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023.

Liquidation Status

Holders of units representing beneficial interests in the Trust are reminded that the conversion of Luby’s, Inc. to the Trust occurred on May 31, 2022.  As previously disclosed, beneficial interests in the Trust are generally not transferable except by will, intestate succession or operation of law.

The Company currently owns two properties, both of which are being operated as Luby’s Cafeterias, under a management agreement with the owner of the Luby’s brand.  The Trust continues to pursue monetization options for these properties as well as the notes receivable. 

Distributions

The Trust made a distribution of $1.00 per unit in August 2023.  Since the approval of the Plan of Liquidation we have distributed an aggregate of $3.70 per unit/common share.

Financial Results

Liquidation Basis of Accounting

Based on the liquidation basis of accounting, the net assets in liquidation at December 31, 2023 are currently estimated to result in future aggregate liquidating distributions of $0.89 per unit based on the number of beneficial trust units outstanding on that date.  After taking into account the $1.00 per unit distribution that was paid in August 2023, this represents a $0.02 decrease from our last reported estimate.  This estimate of future liquidating distributions includes projections of sales proceeds and net operating revenues to be received and costs and expenses to be incurred, including costs to dispose of the Trust’s assets to complete the plan of liquidation. 

There is inherent uncertainty with these projections, and accordingly, these projections could change materially based on a number of factors both within and outside of the Trust’s control. There can be no assurance that these estimated values will be realized.  Such amounts should not be taken as an indication of the timing or the amount of future distributions or our actual dissolution.

The current estimate of net assets in liquidation at December 31, 2023 has been estimated based on undiscounted cash flow projections and assumes a final liquidation of the Company on December 31, 2026, even though the actual timing of the monetization of the Company’s remaining assets cannot be determined with any specificity at this time.  As such, the final liquidation of the Company and the monetization of its remaining assets is subject to future events and uncertainties.  Liabilities are carried at their contractual amounts due as adjusted for the impact of timing of the planned liquidation.  It is not possible to predict with certainty the timing or aggregate amount which may ultimately be distributed to holders of beneficial interests and no assurance can be given that the distributions will equal or exceed the estimate presented in this release.

Tax Information

LUB Liquidating Trust grantor trust letters (Schedule K-1 equivalents) are expected to be completed and mailed to unitholders on or about March 31, 2024.
