Alexander's Announces First Quarter Results

 

PARAMUS, NEW JERSEY..........ALEXANDER'S, INC. (New York Stock Exchange: ALX) filed its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 today and reported:

Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $9.7 million, or $1.90 per diluted share, compared to net income of $21.7 million, or $4.24 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 included (i) $23.8 million, or $4.65 per diluted share, of accrued expense for potential additional New York City real property transfer taxes on the 2012 sale of Kings Plaza Regional Shopping Center (previously disclosed on Current Report on Form 8-K dated March 2, 2018) and (ii) $5.1 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, of expense from the decrease in the fair value of marketable securities resulting from a new GAAP accounting standard effective January 1, 2018. Previously, changes in the fair value of marketable securities were recognized through "accumulated other comprehensive income" on Alexander's, Inc.'s consolidated balance sheets and did not impact its consolidated statements of income. Adjusting net loss for these items, "net income, as adjusted" (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $19.2 million, or $3.77 per diluted share.

Negative funds from operations ("FFO") (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $1.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to positive FFO (non-GAAP) of $29.6 million, or $5.78 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2017. Adjusting negative FFO for the accrued expense for potential additional New York City real property transfer taxes and the decrease in the fair value of marketable securities, positive "FFO, as adjusted" (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2018 was $27.4 million, or $5.36 per diluted share.

Alexander's, Inc. is a real estate investment trust which has seven properties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

_____________________
            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 depreciated real estate assets, real estate impairment losses, depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets and other specified non-cash 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 net (loss) income to (negative FFO) FFO is provided above.
