Factors that could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from current expectations include, but are not limited to: (i) the ability of the Company to successfully integrate its business with Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc.; (ii) the risk that shareholder litigation in connection with the Transactions (as defined herein) may result in significant costs of defense, indemnification and liability; (iii) the ability and willingness of the Company’s tenants and other third parties to satisfy their obligations under their respective contractual arrangements with the Company; (iv) the loss or bankruptcy of the Company’s tenants; (v) the ability and willingness of the Company’s tenants to renew their leases with the Company upon expiration; (vi) the Company’s ability to re-lease its properties on the same or better terms in the event of non-renewal or in the event the Company exercises its right to replace an existing tenant, and obligations the Company may incur in connection with the replacement of an existing tenant; (vii) financing risks, such as the Company’s inability to obtain new financing or refinancing on favorable terms as the result of market volatility or instability and increases in the Company’s borrowing costs as a result of changes in interest rates and other factors; (viii) the impact of the Company's leverage on operating performance; (ix) risks related to the market for retail space generally, including reductions in consumer spending, variability in retailer demand for leased space, adverse impact of e-commerce, ongoing consolidation in the retail sector and changes in economic conditions and consumer confidence; (x) risks endemic to real estate and the real estate industry generally; (xi) competitive risks; (xii) risks related to the geographic concentration of the Company’s properties in the Northeast; (xiii) damage to the Company’s properties from catastrophic weather and other natural events, and the physical effects of climate change; (xiv) the risk that the Company’s insurance coverage may not be sufficient to fully cover its losses; (xv) the Company’s ability and willingness to maintain its qualification as a REIT in light of economic, market, legal, tax and other considerations; and (xvi) information technology security breaches. For further discussion of factors that could materially affect the outcome of forward-looking statements, see “Risk Factors” in Part I, Item 1A, of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 and other documents that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) from time to time.
The forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are based on our current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects on the Company. There can be no assurance that future developments affecting the Company will be those that the Company has anticipated. Except for ongoing obligations to disclose material information as required by the federal securities laws, the Company undertakes no obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. All of the above factors are difficult to predict, contain uncertainties that may materially affect the Company’s actual results and may be beyond the Company’s control. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Company’s management to predict all such factors or to assess the effects of each factor on the Company’s business. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that the Company’s current expectations will be realized. You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q as they identify and address other important risks and uncertainties that could cause actual events and results to differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

Cedar Realty Trust, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
September 30, 2023
(unaudited)

Note 1. Business and Organization
Cedar Realty Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) is a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) that focuses on owning and operating income producing retail properties with a primary focus on grocery-anchored shopping centers primarily in the Northeast. At September 30, 2023, the Company owned a portfolio of 19 operating properties.
Cedar Realty Trust Partnership, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) is the entity through which the Company conducts substantially all of its business and owns (either directly or through subsidiaries) substantially all of its assets. At September 30, 2023, the Company owned a 100.0% interest in, and was the sole general partner of, the Operating Partnership and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of WHLR (as defined herein).
As used herein, the “Company” refers to Cedar Realty Trust, Inc. and its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis, including the Operating Partnership or, where the context so requires, Cedar Realty Trust, Inc. only.
Asset Sale and Merger
On March 2, 2022, the Company entered into definitive agreements for the sale of the Company and its assets in a series of related all-cash transactions. Specifically, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries entered into an asset purchase and sale agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with DRA Fund X-B LLC and KPR Centers LLC (together with their respective designees, the “Grocery-Anchored Purchasers”) for the sale of a portfolio of 33 grocery-anchored shopping centers for cash (the “Grocery-Anchored Portfolio Sale”). In addition, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc. (“WHLR”) and certain of its affiliates pursuant to which, following closing of the Grocery-Anchored Portfolio Sale, WHLR acquired the balance of the Company’s shopping center assets by way of an all-cash merger transaction (the “Merger”).
The transactions contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement and the Merger Agreement are collectively referred to as the “Transactions”. The Transactions were unanimously approved by the Company’s former Board of Directors and were approved by the Company’s common stockholders at a special meeting of stockholders held on May 27, 2022.
On July 7, 2022, the Company and certain of its subsidiaries completed the Grocery-Anchored Portfolio Sale and the East River Park and Senator Square redevelopment asset sales for total gross proceeds of approximately $879 million, including the assumed debt. There were no material relationships among the Company, the Grocery-Anchored Purchasers, or any of their respective affiliates. On August 22, 2022, the Company completed the Merger. Each outstanding share of common stock of the Company and outstanding common unit of the Operating Partnership held by persons other than the Company immediately prior to the Merger were canceled and converted into the right to receive a cash payment of $9.48 per share or unit. As a result of the Merger, WHLR acquired all of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, which ceased to be publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”). The Company's outstanding 7.25% Series B Preferred Stock and 6.50% Series C Preferred Stock remain outstanding and continue to trade on the NYSE. In addition, prior to consummation of the Merger, the Company's Board of Directors declared a special dividend on shares of the Company's outstanding common stock and OP Units of $19.52 per share, payable to holders of record of the Company's common stock and OP Units at the close of business on August 19, 2022.
In connection with the Transactions, the Company incurred transaction costs included in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of operations.

Note 4. Fair Value Measurements
The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, receivables, certain other assets, and accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other liabilities approximate their fair value due to their terms and/or short-term nature.
The fair value of the Company’s fixed rate secured term loans was estimated using available market information and discounted cash flow analyses based on borrowing rates the Company believes it could obtain with a similar term and maturities. As of September 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, the fair value of the Company’s fixed rate secured term loans, which were determined to be Level 3 within the valuation hierarchy, was $138.3 million and $131.8 million, respectively, and the carrying value of such loans, was $140.4 million and $131.5 million, respectively.
Nonfinancial assets and liabilities measured at fair value in the condensed consolidated financial statements consist of real estate held for sale, which, if applicable, are measured on a nonrecurring basis, and have been determined to be (1) Level 2 within the valuation hierarchy, where applicable, based on the respective contracts of sale, adjusted for closing costs and expenses, or (2) Level 3 within the valuation hierarchy, where applicable, based on estimated sales prices, adjusted for closing costs and expenses, determined by discounted cash flow analyses, income capitalization analyses or a sales comparison approach if no contracts had been concluded. The discounted cash flow and income capitalization analyses include all estimated cash inflows and outflows over a specific holding

period and, where applicable, any estimated debt premiums. These cash flows were composed of unobservable inputs, which included forecasted rental revenues and expenses based upon existing in-place leases, market conditions and expectations for growth. Capitalization rates and discount rates utilized in these analyses were based upon observable rates that the Company believed to be within a reasonable range of current market rates for the respective properties. The sales comparison approach is utilized for certain land values and includes comparable sales that were completed in the selected market areas. The comparable sales utilized in these analyses were based upon observable per acre rates that the Company believes to be within a reasonable range of current market rates for the respective properties.

Litigation
The Company is involved in various legal proceedings in the ordinary course of its business, including, but not limited to commercial disputes. The Company believes that such litigation, claims and administrative proceedings will not have a material adverse impact on its financial position or its results of operations. The Company records a liability when it considers the loss probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. In addition, the below legal proceedings are in process:
On April 8, 2022, several purported holders of the Company’s outstanding preferred stock filed a putative class action complaint against the Company, the Board of Directors prior to the Merger, and WHLR in Montgomery County Circuit Court, Maryland entitled Sydney, et al. v. Cedar Realty Trust, Inc., et al., (Case No. C-15-CV-22-001527).
On May 6, 2022, the Plaintiffs in Sydney filed a motion for a preliminary injunction. Also on May, 6, 2022, a purported holder of the Company’s outstanding preferred stock filed a separate putative class action complaint against the Company and the Board of Directors prior to the Merger in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, entitled Kim v. Cedar Realty Trust, Inc., et al., Civil Action No. 22-cv-01103. On May 11, 2022, the Company, the former Board of Directors of the Company and WHLR removed the Sydney action to the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Case No. 8:22-cv-01142-GLR. On May 16, 2022, the court ordered that a hearing on the Sydney Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction be held on June 22, 2022. On June 2, 2022, the Plaintiffs in Kim also filed a motion for a preliminary injunction. The court consolidated the motions for preliminary injunction.
On June 23, 2022, following a hearing, the court issued an order denying both motions for preliminary injunction, holding that the Plaintiffs in both cases were unlikely to succeed on the merits and that Plaintiffs had not established that they would suffer irreparable harm if the injunction was denied.
By order dated July 11, 2022, the court consolidated the Sydney and Kim cases and set an August 24, 2022 deadline for the Plaintiffs in both cases to file a consolidated amended complaint. Plaintiffs filed their amended complaint on August 24, 2022. The amended complaint alleges on behalf of a putative class of holders of the Company's preferred stock, among other things, claims for breach of contract against the Company and the former Board of Directors with respect to the articles supplementary governing the terms of the Company's preferred stock, breach of fiduciary duty against the former Board of Directors, and tortious interference and aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty against WHLR. On October 7, 2022, Defendants moved to dismiss the amended complaint. Plaintiffs opposed the motion to dismiss and filed a motion to certify a question of law to Maryland’s Supreme Court. On

August 1, 2023, the court issued a decision and order granting Defendants’ motions to dismiss, without leave to amend, and denying Plaintiffs’ motion to certify a question of law to the Maryland Supreme Court. The Plaintiffs appealed the dismissal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, Case No. 23-1905, docketed on August 30, 2023. The Court has set a briefing schedule. At this juncture, the outcome of the litigation remains uncertain.
On July 11, 2022, a purported holder of the Company's outstanding preferred stock filed a complaint against the Company and the Board of Directors prior to the Merger in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, entitled High Income Securities Fund v. Cedar Realty Trust, Inc., et al., No. 2:22-cv-4031. The complaint alleged that the Defendants violated Section 10(b) of the Exchange Act and SEC Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by making false and misleading statements and omissions, and that the former Board of Directors are control persons under Section 20(a) of the Exchange Act. On September 25, 2023, the Court granted Defendants’ motion to dismiss the complaint with prejudice, and the time within which the Plaintiff could have appealed such decision has passed.
On October 14, 2022, a purported holder of the Company's outstanding preferred stock filed a putative class action against the Company, the Board of Directors prior to the Merger, and WHLR in Nassau County Supreme Court, New York entitled Krasner v. Cedar Realty Trust, Inc., et al., (Case No. 613985/2022). The complaint alleges on behalf of a putative class of holders of the Company's preferred stock, among other things, claims for breach of contract against the Company and the former Board of Directors with respect to the articles supplementary governing the terms of the Company's preferred stock, breach of fiduciary duty against the former Board of Directors, and tortious interference and aiding and abetting breach of fiduciary duty against WHLR. The complaint seeks, among other relief, an award of monetary damages, attorneys' fees, and expert fees. Defendants removed the case to a federal court. On April 24, 2023, the federal court granted Plaintiff’s motion to remand the case to the Nassau County Supreme Court. Defendants sought and received leave from the federal appellate court for permission to appeal the remand decision. The appeal has been briefed and argued. In the interim, Defendants filed motions in the Nassau County action to dismiss or stay the case based both on the pendency of the lawsuit in Maryland in which the same claims were asserted by other preferred stockholders and on the merits. The motions have been fully briefed, including supplemental briefing on the impact of the Maryland decision. The court held a hearing on the motions on October 27, 2023, but has not yet issued a ruling thereon. At this juncture, the outcome of the litigation is uncertain.

In the event that collectability with respect to any tenant changes, the Company recognizes an adjustment to rental income.

Note 10. Earnings Per Share
Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is calculated by dividing net income (loss) attributable to the Company’s common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period including participating securities (restricted shares that have non-forfeitable rights to receive dividends issued pursuant to the Company’s share-based compensation program are considered participating securities). Unvested restricted shares that are participating securities are not allocated net losses and/or any excess of dividends declared over net income, as such amounts are allocated entirely to the common shareholders. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, the Company had 0.0 million of weighted average unvested restricted shares outstanding that were participating securities. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, the Company had 0.1 million and 0.3 million, respectively, of weighted average unvested restricted shares outstanding that were participating securities. The following table provides a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS calculations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022:

Fully-diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into shares of common stock. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, no restricted stock units would have been issuable under the Company’s then-President and CEO's market performance-based equity award had the measurement period ended on September 30, 2022, and therefore this market performance-based equity award had no impact in calculating diluted EPS for this period. For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, there were no market performance-based equity awards issued or outstanding. Net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests of the Operating Partnership has been excluded from the numerator and the related OP Units have been excluded from the denominator for the purpose of calculating diluted EPS as there would have been no dilutive effect had such amounts been included. The weighted average number of OP Units outstanding was 0 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 30,000 and 59,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022, respectively.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion summarizes the significant factors affecting our consolidated operating results, financial condition, liquidity and cash flows as of and for the periods presented below.
In addition to historical information, this discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements based on current expectations that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions, such as our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Our actual results or other events may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements due to various factors, including those discussed under the section entitled "Forward-Looking Statements."
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this report.
Executive Summary
The Company is a fully-integrated real estate investment trust that focuses on owning and operating income producing retail properties with a primary focus on grocery-anchored shopping centers primarily in the Northeast. At September 30, 2023, the Company owned a portfolio of 19 operating properties. Upon completion of the Merger in 2022, the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of WHLR.
The Company derives substantially all of its revenues from rents and operating expense reimbursements received pursuant to leases. The Company’s operating results therefore depend on the ability of its tenants to make the payments required by the terms of their leases. The Company primarily focuses its investment activities on grocery-anchored shopping centers. The Company believes that, because of the need of consumers to purchase food and other staple goods and services generally available at such centers, its type of “necessities-based” properties should provide relatively stable revenue flows even during difficult economic times.

On July 11, 2023, the Company sold an outparcel building adjacent to Carll's Corner, located in Bridgeton, New Jersey for $3.0 million, resulting in a $2.7 million gain, which is included in operating income in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.
Timpany Plaza Loan Agreement
On September 12, 2023, the Company entered into the Timpany Plaza Loan Agreement for $11.56 million at a fixed rate of 7.27% with interest-only payments due monthly for the first twelve months. Commencing on September 12, 2024, until the maturity date of September 12, 2028, monthly principal and interest payments will be made based on a 30-year amortization schedule calculated based on the principal amount as of that time. On the closing date, the Company received $9.06 million of the $11.56 million and the remaining $2.5 million will be received upon the satisfaction of certain lease-related contingencies. The Timpany Plaza Loan Agreement is collateralized by the Timpany Plaza shopping center.
Critical Accounting Policies
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, management evaluates its estimates, including those related to revenue recognition and the allowance for doubtful accounts receivable, real estate investments and purchase accounting allocations related thereto, and asset impairment. Management’s estimates are based both on information that is currently available and on various other assumptions management believes to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates and those estimates could be different under varying assumptions or conditions.
The Company believes there have been no material changes to the items disclosed as its critical accounting policies under Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. See Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, for recently-adopted accounting pronouncements.

Same-Property Net Operating Income
Same-property net operating income (“same-property NOI”) is a widely-used non-GAAP financial measure for REITs that the Company believes, when considered with financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP, is useful to investors as it provides an indication of the recurring cash generated by the Company’s properties by excluding certain non-cash revenues and expenses, as well as other infrequent items such as lease termination income which tends to fluctuate more than rents from year to year. Properties are included in same-property NOI if they are owned and operated for the entirety of both periods being compared, except for properties undergoing significant redevelopment and expansion until such properties have stabilized, and properties classified as held for sale. Consistent with the capital treatment of such costs under GAAP, tenant improvements, leasing commissions and other direct leasing costs are excluded from same-property NOI.
The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is consolidated operating income. Same-property NOI should not be considered as an alternative to consolidated operating income prepared in accordance with GAAP or as a measure of liquidity. Further, same-property NOI is a measure for which there is no standard industry definition and, as such, it is not consistently defined or reported on among the Company’s peers, and thus may not provide an adequate basis for comparison among REITs.
The following table reconciles same-property NOI to the Company’s consolidated operating income (loss):
