1.
Organization
Alexander’s, Inc. (NYSE: ALX) is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”), incorporated in Delaware, engaged in leasing, managing, developing and redeveloping its properties. All references to “we,” “us,” “our,” “Company” and “Alexander’s” refer to Alexander’s, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. We are managed by, and our properties are leased and developed by, Vornado Realty Trust (“Vornado”) (NYSE: VNO). We have seven properties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

2.
COVID-19 Pandemic

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) was identified in Wuhan, China and by March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization had declared it a global pandemic. Many states in the U.S., including New York and New Jersey, have implemented stay-at-home orders for all “non-essential” business and activity in an aggressive effort to curb the spread of the virus. Consequently, the U.S. economy has suffered and there has been significant volatility in the financial markets. Many U.S. industries and businesses have been negatively affected and millions of people have filed for unemployment.
 
Our properties, which are all located in the greater New York City metropolitan area, have been adversely affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the preventive measures taken to help curb the spread.

Based on their percentage of the Company’s monthly revenue, approximately 21% of our retail tenants have closed their stores and approximately 12% have not paid their April 2020 rent. While we believe our tenants are required to pay rent under their leases, we are considering temporary rent relief on a case-by-case basis.
The office space at our 731 Lexington Avenue property remains open and our tenant, Bloomberg L.P. (“Bloomberg”) continues to pay rent.
Rent collections at our residential property, The Alexander apartment tower, have not been significantly impacted to date.
Because certain of our redevelopment projects are deemed “non-essential,” they have been temporarily paused due to New York State executive orders.

3.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements are unaudited and include the accounts of Alexander’s and its consolidated subsidiaries. All intercompany amounts have been eliminated. In our opinion, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and changes in cash flows have been made. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted. These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the SEC.
We have made estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.
We operate in one reportable segment.

Recently Issued Accounting Literature

In March 2020, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued an update (“ASU 2020-04”) establishing Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 848, Reference Rate Reform. ASU 2020-04 contains practical expedients for reference rate reform related activities that impact debt, leases, derivatives and other contracts. The guidance in ASU 2020-04 is optional and may be elected over time as reference rate reform activities occur. We are currently evaluating the impact of the guidance and our options related to the practical expedients.

In April 2020, the FASB issued a Staff Q&A on accounting for leases during the COVID-19 pandemic, focused on the application of lease guidance in ASC Topic 842, Leases (“ASC 842”). The Q&A states that it would be acceptable to make a policy election regarding rent concessions resulting from COVID-19, which would not require entities to account for these rent concessions as lease modifications under certain conditions. Entities making the election will continue to recognize rental revenue on a straight-line basis for qualifying concessions. Rent abatements would be recognized as reductions to revenue during the period in which they were granted. Rent deferrals would result in an increase to accounts receivable during the deferral period with no impact on rental revenue recognition. We are currently evaluating our options related to this policy election.

5.
Revenue Recognition
Our rental revenues include revenues from the leasing of space to tenants at our properties and revenues from parking and tenant services. We have the following revenue recognition policies:  

Lease revenues from the leasing of space to tenants at our properties. Revenues derived from base rent are recognized over the non-cancelable term of the related leases on a straight-line basis which includes the effects of rent steps and rent abatements. We commence rental revenue recognition when the underlying asset is available for use by the lessee. In addition, in circumstances where we provide a tenant improvement allowance for improvements that are owned by the tenant, we recognize the allowance as a reduction of rental revenue on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Revenues derived from the reimbursement of real estate taxes, insurance expenses and common area maintenance expenses are generally recognized in the same period as the related expenses are incurred. As lessor, we have elected to combine the lease components (base and variable rent), non-lease components (reimbursements of common area maintenance expenses) and reimbursement of real estate taxes and insurance expenses from our operating lease agreements and account for the components as a single lease component in accordance with ASC 842.

Parking revenue arising from the rental of parking spaces at our properties.  This income is recognized as the services are transferred in accordance with ASC Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (“ASC 606”).

Tenant services is revenue arising from sub-metered electric, elevator and other services provided to tenants at their request. This revenue is recognized as the services are transferred in accordance with ASC 606.

The following is a summary of revenue sources for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

Revenue Recognition - continued

Bloomberg accounted for revenue of $27,115,000 and $27,004,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing approximately 50% and 48% of our total revenues in each period, respectively. No other tenant accounted for more than 10% of our total revenues. If we were to lose Bloomberg as a tenant, or if Bloomberg were to be unable to fulfill its obligations under its lease, it would adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition. In order to assist us in our continuing assessment of Bloomberg’s creditworthiness, we receive certain confidential financial information and metrics from Bloomberg. In addition, we access and evaluate financial information regarding Bloomberg from other private sources, as well as publicly available data.

Marketable Securities
As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, we owned 535,265 common shares of The Macerich Company (“Macerich”) (NYSE: MAC). These shares have an economic cost of $56.05 per share, or $30,000,000 in the aggregate. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the fair value of these shares was $3,014,000 and $14,409,000, respectively, based on Macerich’s closing share price of $5.63 per share and $26.92 per share, respectively. These shares are included in “marketable securities” on our consolidated balance sheets and are classified as available-for-sale. Available-for-sale securities are presented at fair value on our consolidated balance sheets and gains and losses resulting from the mark-to-market of these securities are recognized in current period earnings.
8.
Mortgages Payable

On December 12, 2018, we completed a refinancing of our Rego Park II shopping center in the amount of $252,544,000. The loan is at LIBOR plus 1.35% (2.29% as of March 31, 2020) and matures in December 2025. As of December 31, 2019, we had a participation in the mortgage in the amount of $195,708,000 which for GAAP purposes was netted against the mortgage balance. On February 14, 2020, we reduced our participation in the mortgage loan to $50,000,000 and received cash proceeds of approximately $145,000,000. Therefore, the balance sheet amount of the mortgage loan was $202,544,000 and $56,836,000 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively.
The following is a summary of our outstanding mortgages payable as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. We may refinance our maturing debt as it comes due or choose to pay it down.

Fair Value Measurements
ASC 820 defines fair value and establishes a framework for measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes observable and unobservable inputs used to measure fair value into three levels: Level 1 – quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for assets or liabilities; Level 2 – observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted in active markets, but corroborated by market data; and Level 3 – unobservable inputs that are used when little or no market data is available. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs and the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs. In determining fair value, we utilize valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs to the extent possible, as well as consider counterparty credit risk in our assessment of fair value.

Financial Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value
Financial assets measured at fair value on our consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, consist of marketable securities, which are presented in the table below based on their level in the fair value hierarchy, and an interest rate cap, which fair value was insignificant as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. There were no financial liabilities measured at fair value as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

Financial Assets and Liabilities not Measured at Fair Value
Financial assets and liabilities that are not measured at fair value on our consolidated balance sheets include cash equivalents and mortgages payable. Cash equivalents are carried at cost, which approximates fair value due to their short-term maturities and are classified as Level 1. The fair value of our mortgages payable is calculated by discounting the future contractual cash flows of these instruments using current risk-adjusted rates available to borrowers with similar credit ratings, which are provided by a third-party specialist, and is classified as Level 2. The table below summarizes the carrying amounts and fair values of these financial instruments as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019.

Commitments and Contingencies
Insurance
We maintain general liability insurance with limits of $300,000,000 per occurrence and per property, and all-risk property and rental value insurance coverage with limits of $1.7 billion per occurrence, including coverage for acts of terrorism, with sub-limits for certain perils such as floods and earthquakes on each of our properties.
Fifty Ninth Street Insurance Company, LLC (“FNSIC”), our wholly owned consolidated subsidiary, acts as a direct insurer for coverage for acts of terrorism, including nuclear, biological, chemical and radiological (“NBCR”) acts, as defined by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended to date and which has been extended through December 2027. Coverage for acts of terrorism (including NBCR acts) is up to $1.7 billion per occurrence and in the aggregate. Coverage for acts of terrorism (excluding NBCR acts) is fully reinsured by third party insurance companies and the Federal government with no exposure to FNSIC. For NBCR acts, FNSIC is responsible for a $268,000 deductible and 20% of the balance of a covered loss, and the Federal government is responsible for the remaining 80% of a covered loss. We are ultimately responsible for any loss incurred by FNSIC.
We continue to monitor the state of the insurance market and the scope and costs of coverage for acts of terrorism or other events. However, we cannot anticipate what coverage will be available on commercially reasonable terms in the future. We are responsible for uninsured losses and for deductibles and losses in excess of our insurance coverage, which could be material.
Our mortgage loans are non-recourse to us and contain customary covenants requiring us to maintain insurance. Although we believe that we have adequate insurance coverage for purposes of these agreements, we may not be able to obtain an equivalent amount of coverage at reasonable costs in the future. If lenders insist on greater coverage than we are able to obtain, it could adversely affect our ability to finance or refinance our properties.
Paramus
In 2001, we leased 30.3 acres of land located in Paramus, New Jersey to IKEA Property, Inc. The lease contains a purchase option in October 2021 for $75,000,000. The property is encumbered by a $68,000,000 interest-only mortgage loan with a fixed rate of 4.72%, which matures in October 2021. The annual triple-net rent is the sum of $700,000 plus the amount of interest on the mortgage loan. If the purchase option is exercised, we will receive net cash proceeds of approximately $7,000,000 and recognize a gain on sale of land of approximately $60,000,000. If the purchase option is not exercised, the triple-net rent for the last 20 years would include debt service sufficient to fully amortize $68,000,000 over the remaining 20-year lease term.
Rego Park I Litigation
In June 2014, Sears Roebuck and Co. (“Sears”) filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York against Vornado and us (and certain of our subsidiaries) with regard to the 195,000 square foot store that Sears leased at our Rego Park I property alleging that the defendants are liable for harm that Sears has suffered as a result of (a) water intrusions into the premises, (b) two fires in February 2014 that caused damages to those premises, and (c) alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act in the premises’ parking garage. Sears asserted various causes of actions for damages and sought to compel compliance with landlord’s obligations to repair the premises and to provide security, and to compel us to abate a nuisance that Sears claims was a cause of the water intrusions into its premises. In addition to injunctive relief, Sears sought, among other things, damages of not less than $4,000,000 and future damages it estimated would not be less than $25,000,000. In March 2016, Sears withdrew its claim for future damages leaving a remaining claim for property damages, which we estimate to be approximately $650,000 based on information provided by Sears. We intend to defend the remaining claim vigorously. The amount or range of reasonably possible losses, if any, is not expected to be greater than $650,000. On October 15, 2018, Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy relief resulting in an automatic stay of this case.

Kings Plaza Transfer Tax
In 2012, we sold the Kings Plaza Regional Shopping Center (“Kings Plaza”) and paid real property transfer taxes to New York City in connection with the sale. In 2015, the New York City Department of Finance (“NYC DOF”) issued a Notice of Determination to us assessing an additional New York City real property transfer tax amount, including interest.
In 2014, in a case with similar facts, the NYC DOF issued a Notice of Determination to a Vornado joint venture assessing an additional New York City real property transfer tax amount, including interest. In January 2017, a New York City administrative law judge made a determination upholding the Vornado joint venture’s position that such additional real property transfer taxes were not due. On February 16, 2018, the New York City Tax Appeals Tribunal (the “Tribunal”) overturned the January 2017 determination. The Vornado joint venture appealed the Tribunal’s decision to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the
State of New York and on April 25, 2019, the Tribunal’s decision was unanimously upheld. The Vornado joint venture filed a motion to reargue the Appellate Division’s decision or for leave to appeal to the New York State Court of Appeals. On December 12, 2019, that motion was denied and the case can no longer be appealed. Based on the precedent of the Tribunal’s decision, we paid the potential additional real property transfer taxes of $23,797,000 ($15,874,000 of real property transfer tax and $7,923,000 of interest) on April 5, 2018. We are currently evaluating our options relating to this matter.
Letters of Credit
Approximately $1,030,000 of standby letters of credit were issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2020.
Other
There are various other legal actions against us in the ordinary course of business. In our opinion, the outcome of such matters in the aggregate will not have a material effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Earnings Per Share
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted income per share. Basic income per share is determined using the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share is determined using the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding during the period, and assumes all potentially dilutive securities were converted into common shares at the earliest date possible. There were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Alexander’s, Inc.

Results of Review of Interim Financial Information
We have reviewed the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Alexander’s, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of March 31, 2020, the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in equity, and cash flows, for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “interim financial information”). Based on our reviews, we are not aware of any material modifications that should be made to the accompanying interim financial information for it to be in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
We have previously audited, in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB), the consolidated balance sheet of the Company as of December 31, 2019, and the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in equity, and cash flows for the year then ended (not presented herein); and in our report dated February 18, 2020, we expressed an unqualified opinion on those consolidated financial statements. In our opinion, the information set forth in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2019, is fairly stated, in all material respects, in relation to the consolidated balance sheet from which it has been derived.
Basis for Review Results
This interim financial information is the responsibility of the Company's management. We are a public accounting firm registered with the 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 reviews in accordance with standards of the PCAOB. A review of interim financial information consists principally of applying analytical procedures and making inquiries of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters. It is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements taken as a whole. Accordingly, we do not express such an opinion.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Certain statements contained in this Quarterly Report constitute forward-looking statements as such term is defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance. They involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our future results, financial condition, results of operations and business may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. You can find many of these statements by looking for words such as “approximates,” “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “intends,” “plans,” “would,” “may” or other similar expressions in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. These forward-looking statements represent our intentions, plans, expectations and beliefs and are subject to numerous assumptions, risks and uncertainties. Many of the factors that will determine these items are beyond our ability to control or predict.
Currently, one of the most significant factors is the ongoing adverse effect of the novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) pandemic on our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, operating performance and the effect it will have on our tenants, the global, national, regional and local economies and financial markets and the real estate market in general. The extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will depend on future developments, including the duration of the pandemic, which are highly uncertain at this time, but that impact could be material. Moreover, you are cautioned that the COVID-19 pandemic will heighten many of the risks identified in “Item 1A. – Risk Factors” in Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, as well as the risks set forth herein.
For a further discussion of factors that could materially affect the outcome of our forward-looking statements, see “Item 1A. – Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and “Item 1A. – Risk Factors” in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. For these statements, we claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or the date of any document incorporated by reference. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or any person acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements contained or referred to in this section. We do not undertake any obligation to release publicly, any revisions to our forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations include a discussion of our consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires us 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 periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.
Critical Accounting Policies
A summary of our critical accounting policies is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 in “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” to the consolidated financial statements included therein. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, there were no material changes to these policies.

Overview
Alexander’s, Inc. (NYSE: ALX) is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”), incorporated in Delaware, engaged in leasing, managing, developing and redeveloping its properties. All references to “we,” “us,” “our,” “Company” and “Alexander’s” refer to Alexander’s, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries. We are managed by, and our properties are leased and developed by, Vornado Realty Trust (“Vornado”) (NYSE: VNO). We have seven properties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.
We compete with a large number of property owners and developers. Our success depends upon, among other factors, trends of the world, national and local economies, the financial condition and operating results of current and prospective tenants and customers, the availability and cost of capital, construction and renovation costs, taxes, governmental regulations, legislation, population trends, zoning laws, and our ability to lease, sublease or sell our properties, at profitable levels. Our success is also subject to our ability to refinance existing debt on acceptable terms as it comes due.

COVID-19 Pandemic
In December 2019, COVID-19 was identified in Wuhan, China and by March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization had declared it a global pandemic. Many states in the U.S., including New York and New Jersey, have implemented stay-at-home orders for all “non-essential” business and activity in an aggressive effort to curb the spread of the virus. Consequently, the U.S. economy has suffered and there has been significant volatility in the financial markets. Many U.S. industries and businesses have been negatively affected and millions of people have filed for unemployment.
 
Our properties, which are all located in the greater New York City metropolitan area, have been adversely affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the preventive measures taken to help curb the spread.

Based on their percentage of the Company’s monthly revenue, approximately 21% of our retail tenants have closed their stores and approximately 12% have not paid their April 2020 rent. While we believe our tenants are required to pay rent under their leases, we are considering temporary rent relief on a case-by-case basis.
The office space at our 731 Lexington Avenue property remains open and our tenant, Bloomberg L.P. (“Bloomberg”) continues to pay rent.
Rent collections at our residential property, The Alexander apartment tower, have not been significantly impacted to date.
Because certain of our redevelopment projects are deemed “non-essential,” they have been temporarily paused due to New York State executive orders.

In light of the evolving health, social, economic, and business environment, governmental regulation or mandates, and business disruptions that have occurred and may continue to occur, the impact of COVID-19 on our financial condition and operating results remains highly uncertain, but that impact could be material. The impact on us may include lower rental income and occupancy levels at our properties which may result in less cash flow available for operating costs, to pay our indebtedness and for distribution to our stockholders. In addition, the value of our real estate assets may decline, which may result in non-cash impairment charges in future periods and the impact could be material.
Quarter Ended March 31, 2020 Financial Results Summary
Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was $4,572,000, or $0.89 per diluted share, compared to $17,865,000, or $3.49 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter. Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 included an expense of $11,395,000, or $2.23 per diluted share, from the change in fair value of marketable securities. For the quarter ended March 31, 2019, the change in fair value of marketable securities was insignificant.
Funds from operations (“FFO”) (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was $23,744,000, or $4.64 per diluted share, compared to $25,531,000 or $4.99 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter.

Overview - continued
Square Footage, Occupancy and Leasing Activity
As of March 31, 2020, our portfolio was comprised of seven properties aggregating 2,449,000 square feet, of which 2,230,000 square feet was in service and 219,000 square feet (primarily the former Sears space at our Rego Park I property) was out of service due to redevelopment. The in service square feet was 96.5% occupied as of March 31, 2020.
Significant Tenant
Bloomberg accounted for revenue of $27,115,000 and $27,004,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, representing approximately 50% and 48% of our total revenues in each period, respectively. No other tenant accounted for more than 10% of our total revenues. If we were to lose Bloomberg as a tenant, or if Bloomberg were to be unable to fulfill its obligations under its lease, it would adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition. In order to assist us in our continuing assessment of Bloomberg’s creditworthiness, we receive certain confidential financial information and metrics from Bloomberg. In addition, we access and evaluate financial information regarding Bloomberg from other private sources, as well as publicly available data.

Results of Operations – Three Months Ended March 31, 2020, compared to March 31, 2019
Rental Revenues
Rental revenues were $54,110,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $56,778,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $2,668,000. This decrease was primarily due to a retail tenant vacancy at our 731 Lexington Avenue property.
Operating Expenses
Operating expenses were $21,753,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $21,849,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $96,000.
Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization was $7,909,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $7,828,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $81,000.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses were $1,451,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $1,245,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $206,000. This increase was primarily due to higher professional fees.
Interest and Other Income, net
Interest and other income, net was $1,543,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $2,130,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $587,000. This decrease was primarily due to $860,000 of lower interest income due to a decrease in average interest rates, partially offset by $261,000 of higher interest income due to an increase in average investment balances.
Interest and Debt Expense
Interest and debt expense was $8,573,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $10,159,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $1,586,000. This decrease was primarily due to $2,045,000 of lower interest due to a decrease in LIBOR, partially offset by $512,000 of higher interest expense due to an increase in average debt balances.
Change in Fair Value of Marketable Securities
Change in fair value of marketable securities was an expense of $11,395,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2020, resulting from The Macerich Company’s (“Macerich”) closing share prices of $5.63 and $26.92 as of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, respectively, on 535,265 shares owned. Change in fair value of marketable securities was income of $38,000 in the prior year’s quarter, resulting from Macerich’s closing share prices of $43.35 and $43.28 as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, on 535,265 shares owned.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Cash Flows
Rental revenue is our primary source of cash flow and is dependent on a number of factors, including the occupancy level and rental rates of our properties, as well as our tenants’ ability to pay their rents. Our properties provide us with a relatively consistent stream of cash flow that enables us to pay our operating expenses, interest expense, recurring capital expenditures and cash dividends to stockholders. As of April 30, 2020, we have rent receivables due from retail tenants representing approximately 12% of total monthly revenue. While we believe our tenants are required to pay rent under their leases, we are considering temporary rent relief on a case-by-case basis. Other sources of liquidity to fund cash requirements include our existing cash, proceeds from financings, including mortgage or construction loans secured by our properties and proceeds from asset sales.

As of March 31, 2020, we have $457,660,000 of liquidity comprised of $454,646,000 of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and $3,014,000 of marketable securities. We anticipate that cash flows from continuing operations over the next twelve months, together with existing cash balances, will be adequate to fund our business operations, cash dividends to stockholders, debt amortization and capital expenditures. We may refinance our maturing debt as it comes due or choose to pay it down. However, there can be no assurance that additional financing or capital will be available to refinance our debt, or that the terms will be acceptable or advantageous to us. The challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact on our business and cash flows are evolving rapidly and cannot be predicted at this time but that impact could be material. Consequently, we will continue to evaluate our liquidity and financial position on an ongoing basis.
Three Months Ended March 31, 2020
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash were $454,646,000 as of March 31, 2020, compared to $313,977,000 as of December 31, 2019, an increase of $140,669,000. This increase resulted from (i) $122,595,000 of net cash provided by financing activities and (ii) $25,035,000 of net cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by (iii) $6,961,000 of net cash used in investing activities.
Net cash provided by financing activities of $122,595,000 was primarily comprised of proceeds from the reduction of our participation in our Rego Park II mortgage loan of $145,708,000, partially offset by dividends paid of $23,034,000.
Net cash provided by operating activities of $25,035,000 was comprised of (i) net income of $4,572,000 and (ii) adjustments for non-cash items of $22,532,000, partially offset by (iii) the net change in operating assets and liabilities of $2,069,000. The adjustments for non-cash items were comprised of (i) the change in fair value of marketable securities of $11,395,000, (ii) depreciation and amortization (including amortization of debt issuance costs) of $9,202,000 and (iii) straight-lining of rental income of $1,935,000.
Net cash used in investing activities was comprised of construction in progress and real estate additions of $6,961,000.
Three Months Ended March 31, 2019
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash were $312,734,000 as of March 31, 2019, compared to $289,495,000 as of December 31, 2018, an increase of $23,239,000. This increase resulted from (i) $48,083,000 of net cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by (ii) $23,028,000 of net cash used in financing activities and (iii) $1,816,000 of net cash used in investing activities.
Net cash provided by operating activities of $48,083,000 was comprised of (i) net income of $17,865,000, (ii) adjustments for non-cash items of $9,725,000 and (iii) the net change in operating assets and liabilities of $20,493,000. The adjustments for non-cash items were comprised of (i) depreciation and amortization (including amortization of debt issuance costs) of $9,118,000 and (ii) straight-lining of rental income of $645,000, partially offset by (iii) the change in fair value of marketable securities of $38,000.
Net cash used in financing activities was comprised of dividends paid of $23,028,000.
Net cash used in investing activities was comprised of construction in progress and real estate additions of $1,816,000.

Commitments and Contingencies
Insurance
We maintain general liability insurance with limits of $300,000,000 per occurrence and per property, and all-risk property and rental value insurance coverage with limits of $1.7 billion per occurrence, including coverage for acts of terrorism, with sub-limits for certain perils such as floods and earthquakes on each of our properties.
Fifty Ninth Street Insurance Company, LLC (“FNSIC”), our wholly owned consolidated subsidiary, acts as a direct insurer for coverage for acts of terrorism, including nuclear, biological, chemical and radiological (“NBCR”) acts, as defined by the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, as amended to date and which has been extended through December 2027. Coverage for acts of terrorism (including NBCR acts) is up to $1.7 billion per occurrence and in the aggregate. Coverage for acts of terrorism (excluding NBCR acts) is fully reinsured by third party insurance companies and the Federal government with no exposure to FNSIC. For NBCR acts, FNSIC is responsible for a $268,000 deductible and 20% of the balance of a covered loss, and the Federal government is responsible for the remaining 80% of a covered loss. We are ultimately responsible for any loss incurred by FNSIC.
We continue to monitor the state of the insurance market and the scope and costs of coverage for acts of terrorism or other events. However, we cannot anticipate what coverage will be available on commercially reasonable terms in the future. We are responsible for uninsured losses and for deductibles and losses in excess of our insurance coverage, which could be material.
Our mortgage loans are non-recourse to us and contain customary covenants requiring us to maintain insurance. Although we believe that we have adequate insurance coverage for purposes of these agreements, we may not be able to obtain an equivalent amount of coverage at reasonable costs in the future. If lenders insist on greater coverage than we are able to obtain, it could adversely affect our ability to finance or refinance our properties.
Paramus
In 2001, we leased 30.3 acres of land located in Paramus, New Jersey to IKEA Property, Inc. The lease contains a purchase option in October 2021 for $75,000,000. The property is encumbered by a $68,000,000 interest-only mortgage loan with a fixed rate of 4.72%, which matures in October 2021. The annual triple-net rent is the sum of $700,000 plus the amount of interest on the mortgage loan. If the purchase option is exercised, we will receive net cash proceeds of approximately $7,000,000 and recognize a gain on sale of land of approximately $60,000,000. If the purchase option is not exercised, the triple-net rent for the last 20 years would include debt service sufficient to fully amortize $68,000,000 over the remaining 20-year lease term.
Rego Park I Litigation
In June 2014, Sears Roebuck and Co. (“Sears”) filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York against Vornado and us (and certain of our subsidiaries) with regard to the 195,000 square foot store that Sears leased at our Rego Park I property alleging that the defendants are liable for harm that Sears has suffered as a result of (a) water intrusions into the premises, (b) two fires in February 2014 that caused damages to those premises, and (c) alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act in the premises’ parking garage. Sears asserted various causes of actions for damages and sought to compel compliance with landlord’s obligations to repair the premises and to provide security, and to compel us to abate a nuisance that Sears claims was a cause of the water intrusions into its premises. In addition to injunctive relief, Sears sought, among other things, damages of not less than $4,000,000 and future damages it estimated would not be less than $25,000,000. In March 2016, Sears withdrew its claim for future damages leaving a remaining claim for property damages, which we estimate to be approximately $650,000 based on information provided by Sears. We intend to defend the remaining claim vigorously. The amount or range of reasonably possible losses, if any, is not expected to be greater than $650,000. On October 15, 2018, Sears filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy relief resulting in an automatic stay of this case.

Kings Plaza Transfer Tax
In 2012, we sold the Kings Plaza Regional Shopping Center (“Kings Plaza”) and paid real property transfer taxes to New York City in connection with the sale. In 2015, the New York City Department of Finance (“NYC DOF”) issued a Notice of Determination to us assessing an additional New York City real property transfer tax amount, including interest.
In 2014, in a case with similar facts, the NYC DOF issued a Notice of Determination to a Vornado joint venture assessing an additional New York City real property transfer tax amount, including interest. In January 2017, a New York City administrative law judge made a determination upholding the Vornado joint venture’s position that such additional real property transfer taxes were not due. On February 16, 2018, the New York City Tax Appeals Tribunal (the “Tribunal”) overturned the January 2017 determination. The Vornado joint venture appealed the Tribunal’s decision to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the
State of New York and on April 25, 2019, the Tribunal’s decision was unanimously upheld. The Vornado joint venture filed a motion to reargue the Appellate Division’s decision or for leave to appeal to the New York State Court of Appeals. On December 12, 2019, that motion was denied and the case can no longer be appealed. Based on the precedent of the Tribunal’s decision, we paid the potential additional real property transfer taxes of $23,797,000 ($15,874,000 of real property transfer tax and $7,923,000 of interest) on April 5, 2018. We are currently evaluating our options relating to this matter.
Tenant Matter
On January 24, 2020, Kohl’s subleased its store at our Rego Park I shopping center to At Home and remains obligated under its 133,000 square foot lease which expires in January 2031.
Letters of Credit
Approximately $1,030,000 of standby letters of credit were issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2020.
Other
There are various other legal actions against us in the ordinary course of business. In our opinion, the outcome of such matters in the aggregate will not have a material effect on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Funds from Operations (“FFO”) (non-GAAP)

FFO is computed in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude net gains from sales of depreciable real estate assets, real estate impairment losses, depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets and other specified items, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. FFO and FFO per diluted share are used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a performance measure or cash flow as a liquidity measure. FFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. A reconciliation of our net income to FFO is provided below.
FFO (non-GAAP) for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019
FFO (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was $23,744,000, or $4.64 per diluted share, compared to $25,531,000, or $4.99 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter.

Fair Value of Debt
The fair value of our mortgages payable is calculated by discounting the future contractual cash flows of these instruments using current risk-adjusted rates available to borrowers with similar credit ratings, which are provided by a third-party specialist. As of March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the estimated fair value of our mortgages payable was $1,107,000,000 and $974,000,000, respectively. Our fair value estimates, which are made at the end of the reporting period, may be different from the amounts that may ultimately be realized upon the disposition of our financial instruments. 

Item 4.

PART II.
OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.
Legal Proceedings
We are from time to time involved in legal actions arising in the ordinary course of business. In our opinion, the outcome of such matters in the aggregate will not have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
For a discussion of the litigation concerning our Rego Park I property, see “Part I – Financial Information, Item 1 – Financial Statements, Note 10 – Commitments and Contingencies.”

Item 1A.
Risk Factors

Except as set forth below, there were no material changes to the “Risk Factors” disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 (“2019 Form 10-K”).

Our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows have been and are expected to continue to be adversely affected by the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the impact could be material to us.

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (“COVID-19”) was identified in Wuhan, China and by March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization had declared it a global pandemic. Many states in the U.S., including New York and New Jersey, have implemented stay-at-home orders for all “non-essential” business and activity in an aggressive effort to curb the spread of the virus. Consequently, the U.S. economy has suffered and there has been significant volatility in the financial markets. Many U.S. industries and businesses have been negatively affected and millions of people have filed for unemployment.
 
Our properties, which are all located in the greater New York City metropolitan area, have been adversely affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the preventive measures taken to help curb the spread.

Based on their percentage of the Company’s monthly revenue, approximately 21% of our retail tenants have closed their stores and approximately 12% have not paid their April 2020 rent. While we believe our tenants are required to pay rent under their leases, we are considering temporary rent relief on a case-by-case basis.
The office space at our 731 Lexington Avenue property remains open and our tenant, Bloomberg L.P. (“Bloomberg”) continues to pay rent.
Rent collections at our residential property, The Alexander apartment tower, have not been significantly impacted to date.
Because certain of our redevelopment projects are deemed “non-essential,” they have been temporarily paused due to New York State executive orders.

Numerous Federal, state, local and industry-initiated efforts may also affect our ability to collect rent or enforce remedies for the failure to pay rent. Certain of our tenants may incur significant costs or losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and/or incur other liabilities related to shelter-in-place orders, quarantines, infection or other related factors.
    
The COVID-19 pandemic has also caused, and is likely to continue to cause, severe economic, market or other disruptions worldwide. Conditions in the bank lending, capital and other financial markets may deteriorate as a result of the pandemic, our access to capital and other sources of funding may become constrained and the ratios of our debt to asset values may deteriorate, which could adversely affect the availability and terms of future borrowings, renewals or refinancings. In addition, the deterioration of global, national, regional and local economic conditions as a result of the pandemic may ultimately decrease occupancy and/or rent levels across our portfolio as tenants reduce or defer their spending, which may result in less cash flow available for operating costs, to pay our indebtedness and for distribution to our stockholders and the impact could be material. In addition, the value of our real estate assets may decline, which may result in non-cash impairment charges in future periods and the impact could be material. The extent of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effect on our operational and financial performance will depend on future developments, including the duration, spread and intensity of the outbreak, all of which are uncertain and difficult to predict. Due to the speed with which the situation is developing, we are not able at this time to estimate the effect of these factors on our business, but the adverse impact on our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flows could be material. The potential effects of COVID-19 also could impact many of our risk factors included in our 2019 Form 10-K. However, the potential impact remains uncertain.
