(Amounts in thousands, except share and per share amounts) 2019   2018

FFO is computed in accordance with the December 2018 restated 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 net income to FFO is provided above.

In accordance with the NAREIT December 2018 restated definition of FFO, Alexander’s has elected to exclude the mark-to-market adjustments of marketable securities from the calculation of FFO. Alexander’s FFO for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 has been adjusted to exclude $0.8 million, or $0.16 per diluted share and $5.6 million, or $1.09 per diluted share, of expense, respectively, from the change in fair value of marketable securities previously reported.
