  • We have limited cash resources, generate minimal revenues from operations, and are reliant on external sources of capital to fund ongoing operations.

  • We may acquire properties subject to known and unknown liabilities and with limited or no recourse to the seller.
  • Multi-family residential properties may be subject to rent stabilization regulations, which limit our ability to raise rents above specified maximum amounts and could give rise to claims by tenants that their rents exceed such specified maximum amounts.

  • We may not receive or be able to maintain certain tax benefits if we are not in compliance with certain requirements of the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
  • Our ability to develop or redevelop our properties and enter into new leases with tenants will depend on our obtaining certain permits, site plan approvals and other governmental approvals from local municipalities, which we may not be able to obtain on a timely basis or at all.

  • The holder of our special stock and one of our lenders each have the right to appoint a member to our board of directors and, consequently, the ability to exert influence over us.
  • In order to protect our ability to utilize our NOLs and certain other tax attributes, our certificate of incorporation includes certain transfer restrictions with respect to our stock, which may limit the liquidity of our common stock.

Management Discussion
  • Rental revenues in total decreased by approximately $3.1 million to $993,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020 from $4.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2019. This consisted of a decrease in rent revenues by approximately $2.7 million to $911,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020 from $3.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, as well as a decrease in tenant reimbursements by approximately $397,000 to $82,000 for the year ended December 31, 2020 from $479,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The decrease in total revenues and its related components was partially due to the sale of the West Palm Beach, Florida property (approximately $1.2 million) in November 2019 as well as lower occupancy, lower face rents and increased rent concessions at 237 11th due to certain construction related defects that are being repaired.
