“In light of current macroeconomic realities, I am particularly pleased that we maintained 100% occupancy and received all rents throughout the second quarter,” said founder and CEO David Sobelman. “I believe our focus on tenant quality, strong underlying real estate, and an intelligent acquisition process helped us deliver strong results.”
Revenues from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020 increased 216% to $877,604, as compared to $277,912 for the comparable period in 2019 due to three revenue generating properties acquired in September 2019.
The Company’s total expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 were $1,120,328, an increase of $239,208 over the quarter ended June 30, 2019 due primarily to increases in depreciation and amortization, interest, and building expenses as the result of the three properties acquired in September 2019, partially offset by nonrecurring costs of $305,000 and $85,000 relating to a stock based payment to an investment bank and a contract termination fee in 2019, respectively.
General, administrative, and organizational (“GAO”) expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2020 decreased by $326,910 over the comparable period in 2019 due primarily to the non-recurrence of the above mentioned $305,000 stock based payment to the Company’s investment bank.
Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was $242,724 and $603,208, respectively. The improvement in net loss was due to increased revenues and decreased GAO expenses offset by increased building expenses, depreciation, amortization, interest expense.

Core Funds From Operations
Our reported results are presented in accordance with GAAP. We also disclose funds from operations (FFO) and adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) both of which are non-GAAP financial measures. We believe these two non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they are widely accepted industry measures used by analysts and investors to compare the operating performance of REITs.
FFO and AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities and are not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements; accordingly, they should not be considered alternatives to net income as a performance measure or cash flows from operations as reported on our statement of cash flows as a liquidity measure and should be considered in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP financial measures.
The following table reconciles net income (which we believe is the most comparable GAAP measure) to FFO and AFFO:
We compute FFO in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT. NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude extraordinary items (as defined by GAAP), net gain or loss from sales of depreciable real estate assets, impairment write-downs associated with depreciable real estate assets and real estate related depreciation and amortization, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. To derive AFFO, we modify the NAREIT computation of FFO to include other adjustments to GAAP net income related to non-cash revenues and expenses such as amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of capitalized lease incentives, above- and below-market lease related intangibles, non-cash stock compensation, and non-cash compensation. Such items may cause short-term fluctuations in net income but have no impact on operating cash flows or long-term operating performance. We use AFFO as one measure of our performance when we formulate corporate goals.
FFO is used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers primarily 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. We believe that AFFO is an additional useful supplemental measure for investors to consider because it will help them to better assess our operating performance without the distortions created by other non-cash revenues or expenses. FFO and AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
We also use Core FFO and Core AFFO to adjust for non-capitalized costs incurred by the Company in relation to initial public company status and costs incurred with up-listing to Nasdaq. These costs will typically include non-cash stock compensation, consulting fees to investment banks, consultants for advice for public company status, non-recurring litigation expenses and distribution on redeemable non-controlling interest OP Units. Core FFO and Core AFFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
