NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)


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 7 properties in the greater New York City metropolitan area.

2.COVID-19 Pandemic
Our business has been adversely affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Although substantially all our retail tenants are currently open and operating, there are limitations on occupancy and other restrictions that affect their ability to resume full operations and impact their financial health.
In limited circumstances, we have agreed to and may continue to agree to rent deferrals and abatements for certain of our tenants. We have made the policy election available to us based on the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) guidance for leases during the COVID-19 pandemic, which allows us to continue recognizing rental revenue for rent deferral agreements and to recognize rent abatements as a reduction to rental revenue in the period granted for qualifying deferrals and abatements.
Overall, we have collected approximately 95% of the rent due from our tenants for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, including 100% from our office tenant, approximately 87% from our retail tenants, and approximately 99% from our residential tenants.

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 and 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 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, 2020, 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, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.
We operate in 1 reportable segment. 

4.Recently Issued Accounting Literature
In March 2020, the 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.

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 Topic 842, Leases (“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.
Under ASC 842, we must assess on an individual lease basis whether it is probable that we will collect substantially all of the future lease payments. We consider the tenant’s payment history and current credit status when assessing collectability. When collectability is not deemed probable, we write-off the tenant’s receivables, including straight-line rent receivable, and limit lease income to cash received. We recognize changes in the collectability assessment of our operating leases as adjustments to rental revenues.
The following is a summary of revenue sources for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.

Bloomberg accounted for revenue of $28,757,000 and $27,115,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing approximately 51% and 50% 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.

9.Fair Value Measurements

ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement (“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 sheet as of March 31, 2021 consist of marketable securities and an interest rate swap, 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, 2021. There were no financial liabilities measured at fair value as of March 31, 2021.

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, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

10.Commitments and Contingencies
Insurance
We maintain general liability insurance with limits of $300,000,000 per occurrence and per property, of which the first $1,000,000 includes communicable disease coverage, 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 and excluding communicable disease coverage.
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 $275,000 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.

ALEXANDER’S, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (CONTINUED)
(UNAUDITED)

10.Commitments and Contingencies - continued

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 on October 4, 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) 2 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.
Letters of Credit
Approximately $960,000 of standby letters of credit were issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2021.
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. 

11.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.

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, 2021, the related consolidated statements of income, comprehensive income, changes in equity, and cash flows for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, 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, 2020, 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 16, 2021, 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, 2020, 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 COVID-19 pandemic on our business, financial condition, results of operations, cash flows, operating performance and the effect it has had and may continue to 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 continue to be highly uncertain, 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, 2020.
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, 2020. 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, 2021 and 2020. 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, 2021 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, 2020 in “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” and “Note 3 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” to the consolidated financial statements included therein. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, 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
Our business has been adversely affected by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Although substantially all our retail tenants are currently open and operating, there are limitations on occupancy and other restrictions that affect their ability to resume full operations and impact their financial health.
In limited circumstances, we have agreed to and may continue to agree to rent deferrals and abatements for certain of our tenants. We have made the policy election available to us based on the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) guidance for leases during the COVID-19 pandemic, which allows us to continue recognizing rental revenue for rent deferral agreements and to recognize rent abatements as a reduction to rental revenue in the period granted for qualifying deferrals and abatements.
Overall, we have collected approximately 95% of the rent due from our tenants for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, including 100% from our office tenant, approximately 87% from our retail tenants, and approximately 99% from our residential tenants.

Quarter Ended March 31, 2021 Financial Results Summary
Net income for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $17,882,000, or $3.49 per diluted share, compared to $4,572,000, or $0.89 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter.
Funds from operations (“FFO”) (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $25,781,000, or $5.03 per diluted share, compared to $23,744,000 or $4.64 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter.
Square Footage, Occupancy and Leasing Activity
As of March 31, 2021, our portfolio was comprised of seven properties aggregating 2,455,000 square feet, of which 2,219,000 square feet was in service and 236,000 square feet (primarily the former Century 21 space at our Rego Park II property and a portion of the former Sears space at our Rego Park I property) was out of service for redevelopment. Excluding residential, the in service square feet was 95% occupied as of March 31, 2021. The in service residential square feet was 80% occupied as of March 31, 2021.
Significant Tenant
Bloomberg accounted for revenue of $28,757,000 and $27,115,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing approximately 51% and 50% 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, 2021, compared to March 31, 2020
Rental Revenues
Rental revenues were $56,153,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $54,110,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $2,043,000. This increase was primarily due to lease termination fee income received during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 from a retail tenant at our 731 Lexington Avenue property.
Operating Expenses
Operating expenses were $23,800,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $21,753,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $2,047,000. This increase was primarily due to higher operating expenses subject to recovery, including real estate taxes and common area maintenance.
Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization was $8,542,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $7,909,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $633,000. This increase was primarily due to the acceleration of depreciation expense related to retail tenant lease expirations at our 731 Lexington Avenue property.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses were $1,543,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $1,451,000 in the prior year’s quarter, an increase of $92,000.
Interest and Other Income, net
Interest and other income, net was $172,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $1,543,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $1,371,000. This decrease was primarily due to $1,052,000 of lower interest income due to a decrease in average interest rates and $316,000 of lower dividend income from The Macerich Company (“Macerich”).
Interest and Debt Expense
Interest and debt expense was $5,140,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $8,573,000 in the prior year’s quarter, a decrease of $3,433,000. This decrease was primarily due to $3,558,000 of lower interest expense due to a decrease in LIBOR.
Change in Fair Value of Marketable Securities
Change in fair value of marketable securities was income of $582,000 in the quarter ended March 31, 2021, resulting from an increase in Macerich’s share price of $1.03 on 564,612 shares owned. Change in fair value of marketable securities was an expense of $11,395,000 in the prior year’s quarter, resulting from a decrease in Macerich’s share price of $21.29 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 a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, in limited circumstances, we have agreed to and may continue to agree to rent deferrals and abatements for certain of our tenants. Overall, we have collected approximately 95% of the rent due from our tenants for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, including 100% from our office tenant, approximately 87% from our retail tenants, and approximately 99% from our residential tenants. 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, 2021, we had $487,122,000 of liquidity comprised of $480,516,000 of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash and $6,606,000 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 continue to evolve 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, 2021
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash were $480,516,000 as of March 31, 2021, compared to $449,877,000 as of December 31, 2020, an increase of $30,639,000. This increase resulted from (i) $53,966,000 of net cash provided by operating activities, partially offset by (ii) $23,085,000 of net cash used in financing activities and (iii) $242,000 of net cash used in investing activities.
Net cash provided by operating activities of $53,966,000 was comprised of (i) net income of $17,882,000, (ii) adjustments for non-cash items of $11,013,000 and (iii) the net change in operating assets and liabilities of $25,071,000. The adjustments for non-cash items were comprised of (i) depreciation and amortization (including amortization of debt issuance costs) of $8,958,000 and (ii) straight-lining of rental income of $2,637,000, partially offset by (iii) the change in fair value of marketable securities of $582,000.
Net cash used in financing activities of $23,085,000 was primarily comprised of dividends paid of $23,050,000.
Net cash used in investing activities was comprised of construction in progress and real estate additions of $3,842,000, partially offset by the return of short-term investments of $3,600,000.
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.

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, 2021 and 2020
FFO (non-GAAP) for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 was $25,781,000, or $5.03 per diluted share, compared to $23,744,000, or $4.64 per diluted share in the prior year’s quarter.

We have an interest rate swap relating to the mortgage loan on the retail condominium of our 731 Lexington Avenue property with a notional amount of $300,000,000 that swaps LIBOR plus 1.40% for a fixed rate of 1.72%.
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, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the estimated fair value of our mortgages payable was $1,129,000,000 and $1,130,000,000, 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.
