“We continue to work hard to put GIP in the best position possible during these unprecedented times,” said founder and CEO David Sobelman. “I am very happy to note that we continue to collect rent on time and in full and provide shareholders with a solid distribution.”
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2020, total revenues from operations were approximately $872 thousand as compared to $305 thousand for the three-month period ended September 30, 2019. Revenues increased $567 thousand due to three additional properties generating revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020.
During the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred total expenses of approximately $1,275 thousand and $443 thousand, respectively.
During the three-month period ended September 30,2020, general, administrative and organizational (“GAO”) of $268 thousand for 2020 and $149 thousand for 2019. The $119 thousand increase in GAO expenses is due in part to $38 thousand of additional legal fees, increased audit and accounting fees of $35 thousand, increased corporate insurance of $18 thousand, $20 thousand of increased stock compensation plus $8 thousand of other costs.
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred building expenses of approximately $179 thousand and $33 thousand, respectively. The increase is due to the three additional properties which were owned for the entire three months in 2020 of which two of the properties are office buildings for which we bear the costs of utilities, repairs, maintenance and other operating expenses.
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred depreciation and amortization expense of approximately $364 thousand and $107 thousand, respectively. The increase is due to the additional three properties which were owned for the three months in 2020.
During the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred interest expense on debt and the amortization of debt issuance costs of approximately $334 thousand and $128 thousand, respectively. The increase in interest expense incurred is the result of mortgages for the additional properties purchased in 2019.
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we incurred compensation costs of approximately $130 thousand and $27 thousand respectively. The increase is reflective of additional personnel hires and their related compensation for the three-month period in 2020.
Income Tax Benefit
We did not record an income tax benefit for the three-months ended September 30, 2020 or 2019 because we have been in a net loss situation since inception and have recorded a valuation allowance to offset any tax benefits generated by the operating losses.
During the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we experienced a net loss of approximately $403 thousand and $138 thousand, respectively. The increase in net loss was the result of increased revenues offset by increased building expenses, depreciation and amortization, increased GAO costs and interest expense.
Net Income Attributable to Non-controlling Interests
During the three-month period ended September 30, 2020, net income attributable to non-controlling interest was approximately $152 thousand as compared to a net income of $114 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The variance is attributable to the increase in distributions of $122 thousand paid to the limited partnership interests in our Operating Partnership offset in part by the redemption of the non-controlling interest for our Alabama property in December 2019.
Net Loss Attributable to Shareholders
During the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, we generated a net loss attributable to our shareholders of approximately $555 thousand versus a net loss of $253 thousand, respectively.
Core Funds From Operations
Core FFO for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 was a loss of $13 thousand and $127 thousand, respectively; a $114 thousand improvement over the prior year comparable period. Core FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of Core FFO to GAAP net income is included in the schedules attached hereto.
As of September 30, 2020 and the year ended December 31, 2019, we had approximately $0.6 million and $1.4 million, respectively, of cash on hand. As of September 30, 2020 and the year ended December 31, 2019, we had total current liabilities (excluding the current portion of the acquired lease intangible liability) of approximately $0.6 million, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
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.
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.
The following table reconciles net income (which we believe is the most comparable GAAP measure) to FFO and AFFO:
