FUNDS FROM OPERATIONS ("FFO") attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 was $279,509,000, or $1.46 per diluted share, compared to $189,987,000, or $0.99 per diluted share, for the prior year's quarter. Adjusting FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions for the items that impact the comparability of period-to-period FFO listed in the table on page 3, FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions, as adjusted (non-GAAP) for the quarters ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $170,966,000 and $184,280,000, or $0.89 and $0.96 per diluted share, respectively.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 Financial Results

NET INCOME attributable to common shareholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $2.905 billion, or $15.20 per diluted share, compared to $284,338,000, or $1.49 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. Adjusting net income attributable to common shareholders for the items that impact the comparability of period-to-period net income listed in the table on the following page, net income attributable to common shareholders, as adjusted (non-GAAP) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 was $120,372,000 and $189,307,000, or $0.63 and $0.99 per diluted share, respectively.

FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions (non-GAAP) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $691,522,000, or $3.62 per diluted share, compared to $519,640,000, or $2.72 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

The decreases in "net income attributable to common shareholders, as adjusted" and "FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions, as adjusted" were partially due to (i) $8,986,000 (at share), or $0.04 per diluted share, from the non-cash write-off of straight-line rent receivables, (ii) $8,046,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, of non-cash expense for the time-based equity compensation granted in connection with the new leadership group announced in April 2019 and (iii) $11,055,000, or $0.05 per share, of non-cash expense for the accelerated vesting of previously issued OP Units and Vornado restricted stock due to the removal of the time-based vesting requirement for participants who have reached 65 years of age.

Dispositions:

220 CPS

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, we closed on the sale of 14 condominium units at 220 CPS for net proceeds aggregating $348,759,000 resulting in a financial statement net gain of $130,888,000 which is included in "net gains on disposition of wholly owned and partially owned assets" on our consolidated statements of income. In connection with these sales, $21,853,000 of income tax expense was recognized on our consolidated statements of income.

330 Madison Avenue

On July 11, 2019, we sold our 25% interest in 330 Madison Avenue to our joint venture partner. We received net proceeds of approximately $100,000,000 after deducting our share of the existing $500,000,000 mortgage loan resulting in a financial statement net gain of $159,292,000. The net gain is included in "net gains on disposition of wholly owned and partially owned assets" on our consolidated statements of income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. The gain for tax purposes was approximately $139,000,000.

3040 M Street

On September 18, 2019, we completed the $49,750,000 sale of 3040 M Street, a 44,000 square foot retail building in Washington, DC, which resulted in a net gain of $19,477,000 which is included in “net gains on disposition of wholly owned and partially owned assets” on our consolidated statements of income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019. The gain for tax purposes was approximately $19,000,000.

Financings:

On July 25, 2019, a joint venture, in which we have a 50% interest, completed a $60,000,000 refinancing of 825 Seventh Avenue, a 165,000 square foot office building on the corner of 53rd Street and Seventh Avenue, of which $28,882,000 was outstanding as of September 30, 2019. The interest-only loan carries a rate of LIBOR plus 1.65% (3.78% as of September 30, 2019) and matures in 2022 with a one-year extension option. The loan replaces the previous $20,500,000 loan that bore interest at LIBOR plus 1.40% and was scheduled to mature in September 2019.

On September 5, 2019, a consolidated joint venture, in which we have a 50% interest, completed a $75,000,000 refinancing of 606 Broadway, a 35,000 square foot office and retail building on the northeast corner of Broadway and Houston Street in Manhattan, of which $67,500,000 was outstanding as of September 30, 2019. The interest-only loan carries a rate of LIBOR plus 1.80% (3.85% as of September 30, 2019) and matures in 2024. In connection therewith, the joint venture purchased an interest rate cap that caps LIBOR at a rate of 4.00%. The loan replaces the previous $65,000,000 construction loan. The construction loan bore interest at LIBOR plus 3.00% and was scheduled to mature in May 2021.

On September 27, 2019, we repaid the $575,000,000 mortgage loan on PENN2 with proceeds from our unsecured revolving credit facilities. The mortgage loan was scheduled to mature in December 2021, as fully extended. PENN2 is a 1,795,000 square foot office building located on the west side of 7th Avenue between 31st and 33rd Street currently under redevelopment.

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 non-GAAP financial measures 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 attributable to common shareholders to FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions is provided above. In addition to FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions, we also disclose FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions, as adjusted. Although this non-GAAP measure clearly differs from NAREIT’s definition of FFO, we believe it provides a meaningful presentation of operating performance. Reconciliations of FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions to FFO attributable to common shareholders plus assumed conversions, as adjusted are provided on page 3 of this press release.

In accordance with the NAREIT December 2018 restated definition of FFO, we have elected to exclude the mark-to-market adjustments of marketable equity securities from the calculation of FFO. FFO for the three months ended September 30, 2018 has been adjusted to exclude the $7,966,000, or $0.04 per share, decrease in fair value of marketable equity securities previously reported. FFO for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 has been adjusted to exclude the $26,602,000, or $0.13 per share, decrease in fair value of marketable equity securities previously reported.

NOI represents total revenues less operating expenses. We consider NOI to be the primary non-GAAP financial measure for making decisions and assessing the unlevered performance of our segments as it relates to the total return on assets as opposed to the levered return on equity. As properties are bought and sold based on NOI, we utilize this measure to make investment decisions as well as to compare the performance of our assets to that of our peers. NOI should not be considered a substitute for net income. NOI may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.

Same store NOI at share represents NOI at share from property operations which are owned by us and in service in both the current and prior year reporting periods. Same store NOI at share - cash basis is NOI at share from operations before straight-line rental income and expense, amortization of acquired below and above market leases, net and other non-cash adjustments which are owned by us and in service in both the current and prior year reporting periods. We present these non-GAAP measures to (i) facilitate meaningful comparisons of the operational performance of our properties and segments, (ii) make decisions on whether to buy, sell or refinance properties, and (iii) compare the performance of our properties and segments to those of our peers. Same store NOI at share and same store NOI at share - cash basis should not be considered as an alternative to net income or cash flow from operations and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
