PART I
 
Item 1. Business
 
As used in this Annual Report on Form 10-K, the “Company” refers, unless the context otherwise requires, to PGI Incorporated and its subsidiaries. The Company’s executive offices are at 212 S. Central, St. Louis, Missouri, 63105, and its telephone number is (314) 512-8650.
 
The Company, a Florida corporation, was founded in 1958, and up until the mid 1990’s was in the business of building and selling homes, developing and selling home sites and selling undeveloped or partially developed tracts of land. Over approximately the last 25 years, the Company’s business focus and emphasis changed substantially as it has concentrated its sales and marketing efforts almost exclusively on the disposition of its remaining real estate. This change was prompted by its continuing financial difficulties due to the principal and interest owed on its debt.
 
The Company’s remaining land inventory consists of 6 single family lots, an approximate 7 acre parcel and some other minor parcels of real estate consisting of easements in Citrus County, Florida, which are owned through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sugarmill Woods, Inc. (“Sugarmill Woods”). In addition, Punta Gorda Isles Sales, Inc. (“PGIS”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, owns 12 parcels of real estate in Charlotte County, Florida, which total approximately 60 acres, but these parcels have limited value because of associated developmental constraints such as wetlands, easements, and/or other obstacles to development and sale.
 
As of December 31, 2018, the Company had no employees, and all services provided to the Company are through contract services.

Item 2. Properties
 
The Company’s remaining land inventory consists of 6 single family lots, an approximate 7 acre parcel and some other minor parcels of real estate consisting of easements in Citrus County, Florida, which are owned through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sugarmill Woods. In addition, PGIS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, owns 12 parcels of real estate in Charlotte County, Florida, which total approximately 60 acres, but these parcels have limited value because of associated developmental constraints such as wetlands, easements, and/or other obstacles to development and sale. The Company continues its efforts to dispose of all of its real estate.
 
The Company believes the properties are adequately covered by insurance.
 
Item 3. Legal Proceedings
 
The Company is subject to claims and lawsuits that arise primarily in the ordinary course of business. It is the opinion of management that the disposition or ultimate resolution of such claims and lawsuits will not have a material adverse effect on the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company.

Item 5. Market for Registrant’s Common Equity, Related Stockholder Matters and Issuer Purchases of Equity Securities.
 
There is no public trading market for the Company’s common equity securities. There have been no reported transactions in the Company’s common stock, par value $.10 (the “Common Stock”), since January 29, 1991, with the exception of the odd lot tender offer by PGIP LLC (“PGIP”), an affiliate of the Company, in 2003 which was described previously in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2004 and the 2,260,706 shares of Common Stock assigned by Love-PGI Partners, L.P. (“L-PGI”) to Love Investment Company (“LIC”), an affiliate of L-PGI, effective December 31, 2016.

No dividends have ever been paid on the Common Stock, and payment of dividends on the Common Stock is restricted under the terms of the two indentures (one of which matured on June 1, 1991 and the other on May 1, 1992) pursuant to which the Company’s outstanding subordinated convertible debentures were issued and by the terms of the Company’s preferred stock. As of December 31, 2018, to the Company’s knowledge, there were 553 holders of record of the Company’s Common Stock and 347 debenture holders.

Item 7.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
 The liabilities of the Company exceed the reported value of its assets. Management’s efforts and activities have been, and continue to be, to sell assets of the Company to repay its indebtedness and to pay the ordinary administrative expenditures in keeping an inactive company in existence. The aggregate remaining land inventory is less than 70 acres, consisting of multiple parcels located in two Florida counties. These parcels have limited value because of associated development constraints such as wetlands, easements and other obstacles to development and sale. At December 31, 2018 the carrying value of the land inventory was $14,000. The Company is seeking to realize full market value for such land. However, certain land parcels may be of so little value and marketability that the Company may elect not to pay the real estate taxes on selected parcels, which may eventually result in a defacto liquidation of such property by subjecting such property to a tax sale.
 
In management’s judgment, the assets will be insufficient to satisfy much, if any, of the outstanding indebtedness of the Company. Consequently, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a “going concern,” as that term is used for generally accepted accounting purposes. The asset carrying values shown in the financial statements, are judged to be reasonable estimates of the value, when viewed in the context of the entirety of the financial statements.
 
The Company’s financial statement indebtedness includes the: (i) 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures, which matured in June, 1991, with a remaining face amount of $138,000; (ii) its 6.0% subordinated convertible debentures which matured in May, 1992, with a remaining face amount of $8,025,000; and (iii) various notes payable, with a remaining face amount of $1,198,000.
 
With respect to the 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures, the Trustee provided notice of final distribution to the holders of such debentures on September 2, 2014. In connection with such final distribution, the Trustee maintained a debenture reserve fund with a balance of $13,000 and $41,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, which is available for final distribution of $92 per $1,000 in face amount to remaining holders of such debentures who surrender their respective debenture certificates.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2018, $28,000 of the debenture reserve funds were utilized with $2,000 disbursed in final distribution to debenture holders and $26,000 disbursed in escheatment to states of respective debenture holders as debentures with a face amount of $22,000 were surrendered by debenture holders and $287,000 in face amount of debentures were effectively surrendered with the escheatment of respective funds to the states of debenture holders, respectively. Accordingly, the Company has recognized $281,000 in forgiveness of debt during the year ended December 31, 2018. In addition, accrued interest of $594,000 on such debentures that are considered surrendered was recorded as forgiveness of interest expense during the year ended December 31, 2018. There were no debentures surrendered or escheated in 2017 and no funds were utilized from the debenture reserve account.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)
 
As of December 31, 2018, the outstanding principal balance on such 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures that were not surrendered by the respective holders, or escheated by the Trustee to the states of residence of the respective holders, equals $138,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest of $270,000. The outstanding principal on such respective debentures as of December 31, 2017 was $447,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest of $846,000.
 
The 6.5% subordinated convertible debenture balances for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017 are as follows:

If and when such remaining debentures are surrendered to the Trustee, the applicable portion of such principal and accrued interest will similarly be recorded as debt and interest forgiveness. As the Company has consistently stated in prior filings, the Company believes that any potential claims by the respective debenture holders on such 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures would be barred under the applicable statutes of limitations.
 
In addition to the convertible subordinated debentures noted above, the Company’s financial statement indebtedness includes its 6.0% subordinated convertible debentures which matured in May, 1992, with a remaining face amount of $8,025,000.

6% Subordinated debentures due May 1, 1992
  8,025 
  25,474 
 
 $8,163 
 $25,744 
 
Both issues of subordinated convertible debentures have been in payment default for over twenty-five years. It is unclear whether any action on behalf of the bondholders is presently likely, given the negative net worth of the Company and continuing passage of time. Further, the Company believes that if claims were to be asserted with respect to the 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures which matured on June 1, 1991, they would be barred under the applicable statutes of limitations.
 
If such claims are barred, the Company will likely recognize income in like amount for income tax purposes, without the receipt of any cash. Management estimates that the potential income tax liability may be largely averted by the insolvency exception of the tax laws and the utilization of the Company’s tax loss carryforwards, which as of December 31, 2018 totaled approximately $68,477,000.
 
Even if claims by the subordinated convertible debenture holders are barred in full and there is no cash tax consequence to the Company as a result of the utilization of the tax loss carry forwards, the Company would nonetheless have a substantial Stockholders’ Deficiency. As of December 31, 2018, the Stockholders’ Deficiency of the Company was $90,996,000.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Revenues
 
Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2018 decreased by $8,000 to $7,000 compared to revenues of $15,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017, primarily as a result of a decrease in related party interest income. The related party interest income is the result of the Company’s investment in a $560,000 short term note with LIC, which investment was made during the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company received payment of the outstanding note receivable from LIC in March, 2018. Related party interest income totaled $5,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to $13,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. Interest income of $2,000, represents interest earned on the Company’s money market account during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.

Interest expense relating to the Company’s current outstanding debt held by non-related parties, increased by $28,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to the year ended December 31, 2017, primarily as a result of interest accruing on past due balances which increased at various intervals throughout the year for accrued but unpaid interest.
 
The Company recognized $875,000 in forgiveness of debt and accrued interest during the year ended December 31, 2018. The Trustee of the 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures, which matured in June, 1991, provided notice of final distribution to the holders of such debentures on September 2, 2014. In connection with such final distribution, the Trustee designated the remaining balance of the debenture reserve fund held by the Trustee for final distribution of $92 per $1,000 in face amount to holders of such debentures who surrender their respective debenture certificates.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2018, $28,000 of the debenture reserve funds were utilized with $2,000 disbursed in final distribution to debenture holders and $26,000 disbursed in escheatment to states of respective debenture holders as debentures with a face amount of $22,000 were surrendered by debenture holders and $287,000 in face amount of debentures were effectively surrendered with the escheatment of respective funds to the states of debenture holders, respectively. Accordingly, the Company has recognized $281,000 in forgiveness of debt during the year ended December 31, 2018. In addition, accrued interest of $594,000 on such debentures that are considered surrendered was recorded as forgiveness of interest expense during the year ended December 31, 2018. There were no debentures surrendered or escheated in 2017 and no funds were utilized from the debenture reserve account.

Taxes and assessments were $5,000 during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.
 
Consulting and accounting expense was $36,000 and $37,000 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. A quarterly consulting fee is paid to Love Real Estate Company (“LREC”), an affiliate of LIC, of one-tenth of one percent of the carrying value of the Company’s assets, which decreased in 2018 compared to 2017. In addition, accounting service fees of $33,600 were paid to LREC in 2018 and 2017.
 
Legal and professional expenses increased by $68,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 when compared to the same period in 2017 as follows:

The Company recognized an income tax expense of $57,000 during the year ended December 31, 2017 for the 2016 Alternative Minimum tax on the 2016 gain recognized on the sales of real estate.
 
The net loss was $736,000 ($.26 per share loss) for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to a net loss of $1,566,000 ($.41 per share loss) for the year ended December 31, 2017 with such difference of $830,000 being primarily attributable to the forgiveness of debt and interest of $875,000 in 2018 described above. Included in the 2018 and 2017 loss per share computation is $640,000 ($.12 per share of Common Stock) of annual cumulative preferred stock dividends in arrears.

Net cash used in operating activities was $193,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to cash used in operations of $239,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. Net cash used in operations consists of cash received from operations less cash expended for operations.
 
Cash received from operations during the year ended December 31, 2018 was $20,000, which represents $2,000 in interest income earned on the Company’s money market account and $18,000 in related party interest payments received from the Company’s note receivable with LIC. Cash received from operations in the year ended December 31, 2017 was $2,000, which represented interest income earned on the Company’s money market account.
 
Cash expended for operations during the year ended December 31, 2018 was $213,000 which represents a decrease of $28,000 compared to cash expended for operations of $241,000 in the year ended December 31, 2017. The decrease primarily is a result of the payment of $57,000 for income taxes during the year ended December 31, 2017 for the 2016 Alternative Minimum tax on the 2016 gain recognized on the sales of real estate. This decrease is offset by an increase of $4,000 in real estate taxes paid in the year ended December 31, 2018 due to the payment of 2017 accrued real estate taxes in 2018 and the payment of 2018 real estate tax expense in the year ended December 31, 2018. In addition, there was an increase of $24,000 in general and administrative expenses for increased audit and tax related fees in the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to December 31, 2017.
 
Related party receivables decreased by $573,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 as the Company received the balance of a short-term note receivable with LIC in March, 2018. The short-term note receivable with LIC carried interest at 4.5% per annum. During the year ended December 31, 2017 investing activities utilized $560,000 of cash, which represented the short-term loan to LIC.
 
Other assets decreased by $29,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 primarily due to $28,000 of the debenture reserve funds utilized in final distribution for surrender and escheatment of debentures in 2018 and decreased by $1,000 in deferred charges.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)
 
The increase in accrued interest of $793,000 represents interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2018 of $1,388,000 less $594,000 in forgiveness of interest relating to the 6.5% convertible subordinated debentures that were surrendered or escheated in 2018. There was no payment of interest during the year ended December 31, 2018. The accrued interest relating to convertible subordinated debentures increased due to the additional accrual of interest on the nonpayment of previously accrued interest on the Company’s debentures (see Note 8 to the consolidated financial statements under Item 8). The notes payable and convertible subordinated debentures, including accrued interest, are past due.
 
Convertible subordinated debentures payable decreased by $309,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 as a result of 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures in face amount of $22,000 that were surrendered in 2018 and $287,000 in face amount of debentures that were effectively surrendered with escheatment of respective debenture funds to the states of debenture holders.
 
The Company’s stockholders’ deficiency increased to $90,996,000 at December 31, 2018 from a $90,260,000 stockholders’ deficiency at December 31, 2017, reflecting the 2018 operating loss of $736,000.

Recent Accounting Standards
 
Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-15, “Presentation of Financial Statements – Going Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity’s Ability to Continue as a Going Concern”, is effective for interim and annual periods ending after December 15, 2016 and, accordingly, this is discussed in Footnote 2 to the financial statements.
 
ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)”, is effective for fiscal years beginningafter December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years, and accordingly, this is discussed in Footnote 2 to the financial statements.
  
Forward Looking Statements
 
The discussion set forth in this Item 7, as well as other portions of this Form 10-K, may contain forward-looking statements. Such statements are based upon the information currently available to management of the Company and management’s perception thereof as of the date of the Form 10-K. When used in this Form 10-K, words such as “anticipates,” “estimates,” “believes,” “appears”, “expects,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements but are not the exclusive means of identifying such statements. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties. Actual results of the Company’s operations could materially differ from those forward-looking statements. The differences could be caused by a number of factors or combination of factors including, but not limited to: changes in the real estate market in Florida and the counties in which the Company owns any property; the overall national economy and financial markets; institution of legal action by the bondholders for collection of any amounts due under the subordinated convertible debentures (notwithstanding the Company’s belief that at least a portion of such actions might be barred under applicable statute of limitations); changes in management strategy; and other factors set forth in reports and other documents filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.

Opinion on the Financial Statements
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated statements of financial position of PGI Incorporated and Subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficiency and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2018, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended December 31, 2018, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
Emphasis of Matter – Going Concern
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has a significant accumulated deficit and is in default of certain sinking fund and interest payments on its convertible subordinated debentures.  These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in this regard to these matters are described in Note 1.  The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
 
Basis for Opinion
 
These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.
 
Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures include examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

PGI INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
 
1.
Nature of Business and Going Concern
 
PGI Incorporated and Subsidiaries (the Company), a Florida corporation, was founded in 1958, and up until the mid 1990’s was in business of building and selling homes, developing and selling home sites and selling undeveloped or partially developed tracts of land. Over approximately the last 25 years, the Company’s business focus and emphasis changed substantially as it has concentrated its sales and marketing efforts almost exclusively on the disposition of its remaining real estate.
 
The Company has a significant accumulated deficit and is in default of certain sinking fund and interest payments on its convertible subordinated debentures (Note 8).
 
The Company’s major efforts and activities have been, and continue to be, to sell assets of the Company to repay its indebtedness and to pay the ordinary administrative expenditures in keeping an inactive company in existence. The aggregate remaining land inventory is less than 70 acres, consisting of multiple parcels located in Florida counties. These parcels have limited value because of associated development.constraints such as wetlands, easements and other obstacles to development and sale. The potential values of the land parcels held for sale has been difficult to assess as the remaining land inventory is difficult to sell and difficult to value. While the Company will seek to realize full market value for each remaining asset, the amounts realized may be at substantial variance from its present financial statement carrying value. Certain of these assets may be of so little value and marketability that the Company may elect not to pay the real estate taxes on selected parcels, which may eventually result in a defacto liquidation of such property by subjecting such property to a tax sale.
 
In management’s judgment, the assets will be insufficient to satisfy much, if any, of the outstanding indebtedness and there will be no recoveries by the shareholders. Consequently, there is substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued. The asset carrying values shown in the financial statements, are judged to be reasonable estimates of the value, when viewed in the context of the entirety of the financial statements.
 
2.
Significant Accounting Policies:
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries after eliminating all significant inter-company transactions.
 
 
19
 
 
PGI INCORPORATED AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (continued)
 
2.            
Significant Accounting Policies (continued):
 
Accounting Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Revenue and Profit Recognition Change in Accounting Principle
 
In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09 “Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606)” which requires entities to recognize revenue when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to customers at an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled to in exchange for those goods or services. We adopted this standard using the modified retrospective approach. The adoption of ASU 2014-09 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
Acreage
 
Sales of undeveloped and developed acreage tracts are recognized, net of any deferred revenue and valuation discount.
 
Land Inventory
 
Land inventory is stated at cost.
 
Cash
 
The Company’s cash accounts exceed federally insured limits by approximately $276,000.
 
3.
Interest Income:
 
Interest income totaled $7,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018 compared to interest income of $15,000 for the year ended December 31, 2017. Related party interest income decreased by $8,000 during the year ended December 31, 2018 to $5,000 from $13,000 for the comparable period in 2017. The related party interest income is the result of the Company’s investment in a $560,000 short term note with LIC, which investment was made during the year ended December 31, 2017. The Company received payment of the outstanding note receivable from LIC in March, 2018. Interest income of $2,000, represents interest earned on the Company’s money market account during the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017.

The Trustee of the 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures, which matured in June 1991, with an original face amount of $1,034,000, provided notice of a final distribution to holders of such debentures on September 2, 2014. In connection with such final distribution, the Trustee has maintained a debenture reserve fund with a balance of $13,000 and $41,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively, available for distribution to holders of such debentures who surrender their respective debenture certificates.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2018, $28,000 of the debenture reserve funds were utilized with $2,000 disbursed in final distribution to debenture holders and $26,000 disbursed in escheatment to states of respective debenture holders as debentures with a face amount of $22,000 were surrendered by debenture holders and $287,000 in face amount of debentures were effectively surrendered with the escheatment of respective funds to the states of debenture holders, respectively. Accordingly, the Company has recognized $281,000 in forgiveness of debt during the year ended December 31, 2018. In addition, accrued interest of $594,000 on such debentures that are considered surrendered was recorded as forgiveness of interest expense during the year ended December 31, 2018. There were no debentures surrendered or escheated in 2017 and no funds were utilized from the debenture reserve account.

As of December 31, 2018, the outstanding principal balance on such 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures that were not surrendered by the respective holders, or escheated by the Trustee to the states of residence of the respective holders, equals $138,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest of $270,000. The outstanding principal on such respective debentures as of December 31, 2017 was $447,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest of $846,000.

If and when such remaining debentures are surrendered to the Trustee, the applicable portion of such principal and accrued interest will similarly be recorded as debt and interest forgiveness. As the Company has consistently stated in prior filings, the Company believes that any potential claims by the respective debenture holders on such 6.5% subordinated convertible debentures would be barred under the applicable statutes of limitations.
 
Since issuance, $650,000 and $152,000 of the 6.5% and 6% debentures, respectively, have been converted into common stock. This conversion feature is no longer in effect.
 
The Company is in default of certain sinking fund and interest payments on both subordinated convertible debentures totaling $8,163,000 and $8,472,000 in principal plus accrued and unpaid interest of $25,744,000 and $25,032,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

8. Subordinated Convertible Debentures Payable (continued):
 
The debentures are not collateralized and are not subordinate to each other, but are subordinate to senior indebtedness ($1,198,000 at December 31, 2018 and 2017). Payment of dividends on the Company’s common stock is restricted under the terms of the two indentures pursuant to which the outstanding debentures are issued.
 
In order to maximize the amounts realized for the debt holders, the Company has been and intends to continue to seek buyers for the remaining landholdings. No assurances are offered regarding the timing of or the values to be realized from future land sales.
 
9. Convertible Debentures Payable:
 
 
In May 2008, LIC purchased $703,000 in principal amount of the Company’s convertible debentures from the previous debenture holder. The balance of the outstanding convertible debentures in the amount of $797,000, were held by Love-1989. The debentures held by Love-1989 and LIC were secured by a second mortgage behind PGIP on the 366 acres retained by the Company and a security interest behind that held by PGIP in the restricted proceeds escrow. The total debentures balance of $1,500,000 carried a maturity date of July 8, 1997 and were in default as of December 31, 2015 and paid off in 2016. Interest on the debentures accrued at the rate of fourteen percent compounded quarterly. The Company’s primary lender credit agreements prohibit the payment of interest until such time as the primary lender loans are repaid. The convertible debentures and a portion of the accrued interest were paid in 2016.
 
The remaining accrued interest is $52,915,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017.

LIC was the general partner of L-PGI and is owned, directly or indirectly, by Andrew S. Love and Laurence A. Schiffer, which are the directors and executive officers of the Company.
 
In March 1987, the Company sold, in a private placement, 1,875,000 shares of its Class A cumulative convertible preferred stock to L-PGI for a purchase price of $7,500,000 cash ($4.00 per share).

The holders of the preferred stock are entitled to one vote per share and, except as provided by law, will vote as one class with the holders of the common stock. Class A preferred stockholders are also entitled to receive cumulative dividends at the annual rate of $.32 per share, an effective yield of 8%. Dividends accrued for an initial two year period and, at the expiration of this period, preferred stockholders had the option of receiving accumulated dividends, when and if declared by the Board of Directors, in cash (unless prohibited by law or contract) or common stock. At December 31, 2018 cumulative preferred dividends in arrears totaled $15,155,000 ($640,000 of which related to the year ended December 31, 2018). On May 15, 1997 preferred dividends accrued through April 25, 1995 totaling $4,260,000 were paid in the form of 2,000,203 shares of common stock.
 
As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the preferred stock is callable or redeemable at the option of the Company at $4.00 per share plus accrued and unpaid dividends. In addition, the preferred stock will be entitled to preference of $4.00 per share plus accrued and unpaid dividends in the event of liquidation of the Company.

Interest on the debentures accrued at the rate of fourteen percent compounded quarterly. The Company’s primary lender credit agreements prohibit the payment of interest until such time as the primary lender loans are repaid.

Related Party Transactions (continued):
 
The Company has a Management Consulting Agreement with LREC. As a consultant to the Company and in addition to the above services, LREC provides other services including, but not limited to, strategic planning, marketing and financing as requested by the Company. In consideration for these consulting services, the Company pays LREC a quarterly consulting fee of one-tenth of one percent of the carrying value of the Company’s assets, plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the carrying value of the Company’s assets was approximately $553,000 and $788,000 respectively. Consulting fees were $3,000 and $4,000 in 2018 and 2017, respectively. As of both December 31, 2018 and 2017, a total of $1,000 of unpaid fees had accrued under this agreement.
 
During 2017, the Company invested in a short-term note receivable of $560,000 with LIC, bearing interest of 4.5% per annum with an original maturity of December 31, 2017, which was extended one year through December 31, 2018.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:
 
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instrument for which it is practicable to estimate that value:
 
Cash:
The carrying amount approximates fair value because of the short maturity of those instruments.
 
Receivables:
The carrying amount approximates fair value because of the short-term maturity of those receivables.
 
Accounts Payable:
The carrying amount approximates fair value because of the short-term maturity of those debts.
 
Debt:
It was not practicable to estimate the fair value of the Company’s notes payable and its subordinated convertible debentures because these debts are in default causing no basis for estimating value by reference to quoted market prices or current rates offered to the Company for debt of the same remaining maturities.

Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure
 
As disclosed in Form 8-K filed December 6, 2018, the Company received confirmation on November 30, 2018 that BKD LLP (“BKD”), the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, declined to stand for re-engagement effective on the date in 2019 that the Company files its Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (“Fiscal 2018”). There were no disagreements with BKD on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure. The Board of Directors of the Company is in the process of conducting a search to determine the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the period subsequent to the Company’s Fiscal 2018. ..
 
Item 9A. Controls and Procedures
 
The Company has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and the Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) of the Company. Based on this evaluation, the CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of December 31, 2018. There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
Management of PGI Incorporated (the “Company”) is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f). The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company, (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company, and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
 
32
 
 
Item 9A. Controls and Procedures (continued)
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations, including the possibility of human error and the circumvention of overriding controls. Accordingly, even an effective system of internal control over financial reporting can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
Management has assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2018, based on the framework set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on that assessment, management concludes that, as of December 31, 2018, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is effective.

Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company since February 1994; Vice Chairman of the Board since May 1987; President and Chief Executive Officer of Love Real Estate Company and Love Investment Company since 1973; Manager of PGIP since 1995; member of the Real Estate Board of Metropolitan St. Louis and the National Association of Real Estate Boards.
 
 
 
Andrew S. Love

(age 75)
 
May 1987; Secretary since February 1994; Chairman of the Board of Love Real Estate Company and Secretary of Love Investment Company since 1973; Partner in St. Louis based law firm of Bryan, Cave, McPheeters & McRoberts until 1991; Manager of PGIP since 1995.
 
Executive officers of the Company are appointed annually by the Board of Directors to hold office until their successors are appointed and qualify.
 
The directors of the Company have determined that the Company does not have an audit committee financial expert serving on its board of directors (which acts as the Company’s audit committee). In addition, the Company has not adopted a code of ethics that applies to its principal executive officer and principal financial officer (principal accounting officer). The Company’s decision not to adopt a code of ethics or to have an audit committee financial expert are primarily attributable to the following reasons: (i) as a result of its continuing financial difficulties due to amounts owed on its debt, the Company is focused almost exclusively on the disposition of its remaining real estate; (ii) as described in Item 5, there have been no reported transactions in the Company’s Common Stock since January 29, 1991, other than the odd lot tender offer in 2003, the assignment of the 2,260,706 shares of Company Common Stock by L-PGI to LIC in 2016, and the 2017 quotations; (iii) the board of directors of the Company consists of only two directors and these two directors are also the only executive officers of the Company; and (iv) the same person serves as the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
The Company was not furnished any Forms 3, 4 or 5, or any amendments thereto, during our most recent fiscal year. Accordingly, the Company is not aware of any officer, director or beneficial owner of more than 10 percent of the Company’s registered securities that failed to file on a timely basis Forms 3, 4 and 5 required under Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, during fiscal year ended 2018.
 
Item 11. Executive Compensation
 
The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer is Mr. Laurence A. Schiffer. Because of the Company’s impaired financial condition, it does not compensate in any manner Mr. Schiffer or Mr. Love, the Company’s only other executive officer, for the services they perform for the Company in that capacity or in their capacity as directors of the Company. Management services are provided to the Company by Love Real Estate Company (“LREC”), which is an affiliate of Love Investment Company, pursuant to that certain Management Consulting Agreement by and between the Company and LREC dated March 25, 1987 (the “Management Agreement”). Mr. Schiffer and Mr. Love are employees of, and receive an annual salary from LREC. Neither the Company nor LREC maintains records, which would allow either of them to attribute any portion of the remuneration Mr. Schiffer receives from LREC to the management services he performs for the Company. See Item 13. “Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions, and Director Independence” for additional information about the Management Agreement.
 
Neither Mr. Schiffer nor Mr. Love received fees from any source directly attributable to their services as directors of the Company during 2018.
 
Item 12. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters
 
The table below provides certain information as of February 25, 2019 regarding the beneficial ownership of the Common Stock and the Class A cumulative convertible preferred stock (the “Preferred Stock”) by each person known by the Company to be the beneficial owner of more than five percent of either the Common Stock or the Preferred Stock, each director of the Company (which persons are also the Company’s only executive officers), and by virtue of the foregoing, the directors and executive officers of the Company as a group.

In May 2008, LIC purchased $703,000 in principal amount of the Company’s convertible debentures from the previous debenture holder. The balance of the outstanding convertible debentures in the amount of $797,000, were held by Love-1989. The debentures held by Love-1989 and LIC were secured by a second mortgage behind PGIP on the 366 acres retained by the Company and a security interest behind that held by PGIP in the restricted proceeds escrow. The total debentures balance of $1,500,000 carried a maturity date of July 8, 1997 and were in default as of December 31, 2015 and paid off in 2016. Interest on the debentures accrued at the rate of fourteen percent compounded quarterly. The Company’s primary lender credit agreements prohibit the payment of interest until such time as the primary lender loans are repaid. The convertible debentures and a portion of the accrued interest were paid in 2016.
 
The remaining accrued interest is $52,915,000 as of December 31, 2018 and 2017.
 
PGIP is owned and managed by Hallmark Investment Corporation. Messrs. Love and Schiffer are directors and executive officers of HIC and own 90% of all the issued and outstanding voting stock of HIC.
 
The Company maintains its administration and accounting offices with the offices of LREC in St. Louis, Missouri. LREC, a Missouri Corporation, is owned by LIC, and is located at 212 South Central Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63105. A fee of $2,800 per month was accrued in 2018 and 2017 and the Company made payments of $33,600 to LREC in 2018 and 2017, for the services described in the next paragraph. There were no accrued accounting service fees as of December 31, 2018 and 2017.
 
The following is a list of services provided by LREC during 2018:
 
1.
Maintain books of original entry;
2.
Prepare quarterly and annual SEC filings;
3.
Coordinate the annual audit;
4.
Assemble information for tax filing, review reports as prepared by tax accountants and file same;
5.
Track shareholder records through transfer agent;
6.
Maintain policies of insurance against property and liability exposure;
7.
Handle day-to-day accounting requirements; and
8.
Provide telephone and computer service.

Although an amount is paid to LREC as reimbursement for expenses and as a fee for providing management services to the Company, neither the Company nor LREC maintain records which would allow them to attribute any portion of the aforementioned monthly fee to reimbursement of particular expenses or to payment for the management services performed for the Company by individual employees of LREC, including Messrs. Love and Schiffer.
 
The Company has a Management Agreement with LREC. As a consultant to the Company and in addition to the above services, LREC provides other services including, but not limited to, strategic planning, marketing, and financing as requested by the Company. In consideration for these consulting services, the Company pays LREC a quarterly consulting fee of one-tenth of one percent of the book value of the Company’s assets, plus reasonable out-of-pocket expenses. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, the book value of the Company’s assets was $553,000 and $788,000. Consulting fees were $3,000 and 4,000 in 2018 and 2017, respectively. As of December 31, 2018 and 2017, a total of $1,000 of unpaid fees had accrued under the Management Agreement. The Management Agreement will continue in effect until terminated upon 90 days prior written notice by a majority vote of the Company’s directors.
 
Mr. Schiffer and Mr. Love receive a salary from LREC, such salary compensates them for their services to LREC, which provides consulting services for numerous other entities affiliated with the Company, and none of the amount earned by LREC under the Management Agreement is intended to be allocated or attributable to any officer or employee, including Mr. Schiffer, of LREC. No part of Mr. Schiffer’s annual salary from LREC is directly attributable to the management services he performs for the Company as an employee of LREC pursuant to the Management Agreement.
 
During 2017, the Company invested in a short-term note receivable of $560,000 with LIC, bearing interest of 4.5% per annum with an original maturity of December 31, 2017, which was extended one year through December 31, 2018. The interest receivable on the related party note receivable was $13,000 at December 31, 2017. The Company received payment of the outstanding note receivable from LIC in March 2018 of $578,000, including the note receivable balance of $560,000 and accrued interest receivable of $18,000.
 
The Company believes that the affiliated transactions are on terms comparable to those which would be obtained from unaffiliated persons.
 
Neither of the two directors of the Company is independent pursuant to the definition of “independent director” set forth in the NYSE American Company Guide because both of them are executive officers of the Company. The Company does not have a separate designated audit, compensation or nominating committee or committee performing similar functions.
