THE ST. JOE COMPANY

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(Dollars in thousands, unless otherwise stated)

(Unaudited)

1. Nature of Operations

The St. Joe Company together with its consolidated subsidiaries (“St. Joe” or the “Company”) is a Florida real estate development, asset management and operating company with real estate assets and operations in Northwest Florida. Approximately 90% of the Company’s real estate land holdings are located within fifteen miles of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Company conducts primarily all of its business in the following three reportable operating segments: 1) residential, 2) hospitality and 3) commercial. Prior to the first quarter of 2020, commercial leasing and sales, as well as forestry were treated as individual operating segments. Commencing in the first quarter of 2020, due to organizational changes, the Company’s previously titled “commercial leasing and sales” and “forestry” segments are now reported as one segment and retitled to “commercial.” This change is consistent with the Company’s belief that the decision making and management of the assets in these segments are being made as one group. All prior year segment information has been reclassified to conform to the 2020 presentation. Also commencing in the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s previously titled “residential real estate” segment was retitled to “residential.” The changes had no effect on the condensed consolidated balance sheets, statements of operations, statements of comprehensive (loss) income or statements of cash flows for the periods presented. See Note 17. Segment Information.

2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) for reporting on Form 10‑Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnotes required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for complete financial statements are not included herein. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its majority-owned and controlled subsidiaries and variable interest entities where the Company deems itself the primary beneficiary. Investments in joint ventures (“JV”) and limited partnerships in which the Company is not the primary beneficiary are accounted for by the equity method. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. The December 31, 2019 condensed consolidated balance sheet amounts have been derived from the Company’s December 31, 2019 audited consolidated financial statements. Certain prior period amounts in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on the Company’s previously reported total assets and liabilities, stockholders’ equity or net (loss) income. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2020.

A variable interest entity (“VIE”) is an entity in which a controlling financial interest may be achieved through arrangements that do not involve voting interests. A VIE is required to be consolidated by its primary beneficiary, which is the entity that possesses the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance and has the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that are significant to the entity. The Company consolidates VIEs when it is the primary beneficiary of the VIE, including real estate JVs determined to be VIEs. See Note 4. Real Estate Joint Ventures .

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all normal recurring adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for fair presentation of the information contained herein. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the year ended December 31, 2019. The Company adheres to the same accounting policies in preparation of its unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements as the Company’s December 31, 2019 annual financial statements, except for recently adopted

10

Table of Contents

accounting pronouncements detailed below. As required under GAAP, interim accounting for certain expenses, including income taxes, are based on full year assumptions. For interim financial reporting purposes, income taxes are recorded based upon estimated annual income tax rates.

Concentration of Risks and Uncertainties

The Company’s real estate investments are concentrated in Northwest Florida. Uncertain economic conditions could have an adverse impact on the Company’s real estate values.

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization characterized the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”), as a global pandemic and recommended containment and mitigation measures. The overall economic conditions in the United States have been negatively impacted by the emerging threat posed by COVID-19. The Company’s hospitality operations have already been, and may continue to be, disrupted by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and the governmental response to address it. While the breadth and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic impact is unknown, it could have a material adverse impact on the Company’s business, results of operations, cash flows and financial condition. See Part II. Item 1A. Risk Factors .

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to a concentration of credit risk consist of cash, cash equivalents, investments, other receivables, investments held by special purpose entity or entities (“SPE”) and investments in retained interests. The Company deposits and invests cash with local and regional financial institutions, and as of March 31, 2020, these balances exceeded the amount of F.D.I.C. insurance provided on such deposits. In addition, as of March 31, 2020 the company had $49.9 million invested in U.S. Treasury Bills and $2.4 million invested in three issuers of preferred stock that are non-investment grade, as well as investments of $37.5 million in short term commercial paper from s even issuers.

Earnings Per Share

Basic and diluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing net (loss) income attributable to the Company by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. For the three months ended March 31, 2020 and March 31, 2019, basic and diluted average shares outstanding were the same. There were no outstanding common stock equivalents as of March 31, 2020 or March 31, 2019. Non-vested restricted stock is included in outstanding shares at the time of grant.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Financial Instruments - Credit Losses

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016‑13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326) (“ASU 2016-13”), that requires a financial asset measured at amortized cost to be presented at the net amount expected to be collected and requires that credit losses from available-for-sale debt securities be presented as an allowance for credit loss. The allowance for credit losses should reflect management’s current estimate of credit losses that are expected to occur over the remaining life of a financial asset. In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-19, which clarifies that impairment of receivables from operating leases should be accounted for using lease guidance. In April 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-04, which clarifies and improves ASU 2016-13. In May 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-05, which provides an option to irrevocably elect the fair value option for certain financial assets previously measured at amortized cost basis.

The Company adopted the new guidance, including amendments, as of January 1, 2020, and has elected to implement Topic 326 retrospectively using the cumulative-effect adjustment transition method as of the date of adoption. As a result, prior periods have not been restated. The Company elected the practical expedient to not measure an allowance for credit losses for accrued interest receivables and will write off uncollectible balances in a timely manner, which is 90 days from when it is determined uncollectible. As of the date of adoption, a cumulative-effect adjustment was recorded to beginning retained earnings. The impact of adopting this guidance resulted in an adjustment to decrease retained earnings by $0.1 million, net of the related tax effects, a decrease in accounts receivable, net and

11

Table of Contents

notes receivable, net for allowance for credit losses of $0.1 million and an increase to other liabilities related to allowance for credit losses for unconsolidated JV debt guaranteed by the Company of less than $0.1 million. There were no adjustments related to operating lease receivables for which the Company is the lessor. The adoption of this guidance did not materially impact results of operations or cash flows.

Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-03 ,   Codification Improvements to Financial Instruments , which makes narrow-scope improvements to various aspects of financial instruments guidance. The standard is effective immediately for certain amendments and for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. The implementation of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

Income Taxes

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in Topic 740. The amendment also improves consistent application of and simplifies GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. This new guidance will be effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this guidance to have a material impact on its financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.

Investments – Equity Securities, Investments-Equity Method and Joint Ventures and Derivatives and Hedging

In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01, Investments—Equity Securities (Topic 321), Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323), and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Clarifying the Interactions between Topic 321, Topic 323, and Topic 815 (a consensus of the Emerging Issues Task Force )   which clarifies the interaction   between the accounting standard on recognition and measurement of financial instruments in Topic 321, Investments—Equity Securities and Topic 323, Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures .   The new guidance will be effective   for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is   currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of this guidance will have on its financial condition, results of   operations and cash flows.

Reference Rate Reform

In March 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-04, Reference Rate Reform (Topic 848): Facilitation of the Effects of Reference Rate Reform on Financial Reporting that provides temporary optional guidance to ease the potential burden in accounting for or recognizing the effects of reference rate reform on financial reporting. The new guidance provides expedients and exceptions for applying GAAP to contract modifications and hedging relationships affected by reference rate reform if certain criteria are met. The amendments apply only to contracts and hedging relationships that reference LIBOR or another reference rate that is expected to be discontinued due to reference rate reform. This new guidance is effective prospectively beginning on March 12, 2020 through December 31, 2022. The Company is   currently evaluating the impact that the adoption of this guidance will have on its financial condition, results of   operations and cash flows.

4. Real Estate Joint Ventures

The Company enters into real estate JVs, from time to time, for the purpose of developing real estate and other business activities in which the Company may or may not have a controlling financial interest. GAAP requires consolidation of VIEs in which an enterprise has a controlling financial interest and is the primary beneficiary. A controlling financial interest will have both of the following characteristics: (a) the power to direct the VIE activities that most significantly impact economic performance and (b) the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits from the VIE that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The Company examines specific criteria and uses judgment when determining whether the Company is the primary beneficiary and must consolidate a VIE. The Company continues

13

Table of Contents

to assess whether it is the primary beneficiary on an ongoing basis. Investments in JVs and limited partnerships in which the Company is not the primary beneficiary are accounted for by the equity method.

The timing of cash flows for additional required capital contributions related to the Company’s JVs varies by agreement. Some of the Company’s consolidated and unconsolidated JVs have entered into financing agreements, where the Company or its JV partners have provided guarantees. See Note 10. Debt, Net and Note 18. Commitments and   Contingencies for additional information.
