NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

June 30, 2014

(Unaudited)

1. ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:

GTJ REIT, Inc. (the “Company” or “GTJ REIT”) was incorporated on June 23, 2006 under Maryland General Corporation Law. The Company is focused on the acquisition, ownership, management, and operation of commercial real estate located in the New York tri-state area.

The Company elected to be treated as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended and elected December 31st as its fiscal year end. Under the REIT operating structure, the Company is permitted to deduct the dividends paid to its stockholders when determining its taxable income. Assuming dividends equal or exceed the Company’s taxable income, the Company generally will not be required to pay Federal corporate income taxes on such income.

On January 17, 2013, the Company closed on a transaction with Wu/Lighthouse Portfolio, LLC, in which a limited partnership (the “UPREIT”) owned and controlled by the Company, acquired all outstanding ownership interests of a portfolio consisting of 25 commercial properties (the “Acquired Properties”) located in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, in exchange for 33.29% of the outstanding limited partnership interests in the UPREIT; the owner of all 32 properties. The acquisition was recorded as a business combination and accordingly the purchase price was allocated to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at fair value. At June 30, 2014, subject to certain anti-dilutive and other provisions contained in the governing agreements, the limited partnership interests in the UPREIT may be convertible in the aggregate, into approximately 1.8 million shares of the Company’s common stock and approximately 5.0 million shares of Series B preferred stock.

As of June 30, 2014, the UPREIT owned 35 properties consisting of approximately 3.2 million square feet of office and industrial properties on 243 acres of land in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

Prior to 2013, the Company operated a group of outdoor maintenance, shelter cleaning, and electrical contracting businesses, as well as a parking garage facility. During 2011, the Board voted to divest these operations which were sold in 2012 and 2013. Accordingly, the operations of these entities, including any impact of insurance claims associated with those entities, are reported as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:

Basis of Presentation:

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and include the financial statements of the Company, its wholly owned subsidiaries, and the UPREIT, as the Company makes all operating and financial decisions for (i.e., exercises control over) the UPREIT. All material intercompany transactions have been eliminated. The ownership interests of the other investors in the UPREIT are presented as noncontrolling interests.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial information has been prepared according to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations. The Company’s management believes that the disclosures presented in these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In Management’s opinion, all adjustments and eliminations, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the financial position and results of operations for the reported periods have been included. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results for the full year. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial information should be read in conjunction with the Company’s December 31, 2013 audited consolidated financial statements, as previously filed with the SEC on Form 10-K on March 21, 2014, and other public information.

Certain reclassifications of prior period amounts, including the presentation of the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive (Loss) Income required by Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 205 - “Presentation of Financial Statements,” have been made in the financial statements in order to conform to the 2014 presentation.

During June 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-12, “Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period.” ASU 2014-12 provides explicit guidance on how to account for share-based payments that require a specific performance target to be achieved which may be achieved after an employee completes the requisite service period. ASU 2014-12 is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and may be applied either prospectively or retrospectively. ASU 2014-12 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

During May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing GAAP. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2014-09 on its consolidated financial statements and has not yet determined the method by which the standard will be adopted in 2017.

Use of Estimates:

The preparation of the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments, and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. All of these estimates reflect management’s best judgment about current economic and market conditions and their effects based on information available as of the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements. If such conditions persist longer or deteriorate further than expected, it is reasonably possible that the judgments and estimates could change, which may result in impairments of certain assets. Significant estimates include the useful lives of long lived assets including property, equipment and intangible assets, impairment of assets, collectability of receivables, contingencies, and stock-based compensation.

Real Estate:

Real estate assets are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization. All costs related to the improvement or replacement of real estate properties are capitalized. Additions, renovations, and improvements that enhance and/or extend the useful life of a property are also capitalized. Expenditures for ordinary maintenance, repairs, and improvements that do not materially prolong the normal useful life of an asset are charged to operations as incurred.

Upon the acquisition of real estate properties, the fair values of the real estate purchased are allocated to the acquired tangible assets (generally consisting of land, buildings, and building improvements) and identified intangible assets and liabilities (generally consisting of above-market and below-market leases and the origination value of in-place leases) in accordance with GAAP. The Company utilizes methods similar to those used by independent appraisers in estimating the fair value of acquired assets and liabilities. The fair value of the tangible assets of an acquired property considers the value of the property “as-if-vacant.” In allocating purchase price to identified intangible assets and liabilities of an acquired property, the values of above-market and below-market leases are estimated based on the differences between (i) contractual rentals and the estimated market rents over the applicable lease term discounted back to the date of acquisition utilizing a discount rate adjusted for the credit risk associated with the respective tenants and (ii) the estimated cost of acquiring such leases giving effect to the Company’s history of providing tenant improvements and paying leasing commissions, offset by a vacancy period during which such space would be leased. The aggregate value of in-place leases is measured by the excess of (i) the purchase price paid for a property after adjusting existing in-place leases to market rental rates over (ii) the estimated fair value of the property “as-if-vacant,” determined as set forth above.

Mortgage notes payable assumed in connection with acquisitions are recorded at their fair value using current market interest rates for similar debt at the time of acquisitions. Acquisition related costs are expensed as incurred. The capitalized above-market lease values are amortized as a reduction of rental revenue over the remaining term of the respective leases and the capitalized below-market lease values are amortized as an increase to rental revenue over the remaining term of the respective leases. The value of in-place leases is based on the Company’s evaluation of the specific characteristics of each tenant’s lease. Factors considered include estimates of carrying costs during expected lease-up periods, current market conditions, and costs to execute similar leases. The values of in place leases are amortized over the remaining term of the respective leases. If a tenant terminates its lease prior to its contractual expiration date, any unamortized balance of the related intangible assets or liabilities is recorded as income or expense in the period. The total net impact to rental revenues due to the amortization of above and below market leases was a net increase of approximately $0.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

Table of Contents

As of June 30, 2014, approximately $3.0 million and $12.4 million (net of accumulated amortization) relating to above market and in place leases, respectively, are included in acquired lease intangible assets, net in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. Approximately $8.4 million (net of accumulated amortization) relating to below market leases is included in acquired lease intangible liabilities, net in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.

The following table presents the projected impact for the remainder of 2014, the next five years and thereafter related to the increase to rental revenue from the amortization of the acquired above market and below market lease intangibles and the increase to amortization expense of the in place lease intangibles for properties owned at June 30, 2014 (in thousands):

Depreciation and Amortization:

The Company uses the straight-line method for depreciation and amortization. Properties and property improvements are depreciated over their estimated useful lives, which range from 5 to 40 years. Furniture, fixtures, and equipment are depreciated over estimated useful lives that range from 5 to 10 years. Tenant improvements are amortized over the shorter of the remaining non-cancellable term of the related leases or their useful lives.

Asset Impairment:

Management reviews each real estate investment for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying value of a real estate investment may not be recoverable. The review of recoverability is based on an estimate of the undiscounted future cash flows that are expected to result from the real estate investment’s use and eventual disposition. Such cash flow analyses consider factors such as expected future operating income, trends and prospects, as well as the effects of leasing demand, competition and other factors. If an impairment event exists due to the projected inability to recover the carrying value of a real estate investment, an impairment loss is recorded to the extent that the carrying value exceeds estimated fair value. Management is required to make subjective assessments as to whether there are impairments in the value of its real estate holdings. Management has determined that there were no indicators of impairment relating to its long-lived assets at June 30, 2014.

Deferred Charges:

Deferred charges consist principally of leasing commissions, which are amortized ratably over the life of the related tenant leases, and financing costs, which are amortized over the terms of the respective debt agreements. These deferred charges are included in other assets on the consolidated balance sheets.

Reportable Segments:

The Company operates in one reportable segment, commercial real estate.

Revenue Recognition:

Rental income includes the base rent that each tenant is required to pay in accordance with the terms of their respective leases reported on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. In order for management to determine, in its judgment, that the unbilled rent receivable applicable to each specific tenant is collectible, management reviews billed and unbilled rent receivables on a quarterly basis and takes into consideration the tenant’s payment history and financial condition. Some of the leases provide for increases based on the consumer price index.

Substantially all of the Company’s properties are subject to long-term net leases under which the tenant is typically responsible to pay for their pro rata share of real estate taxes, insurance, and ordinary maintenance and repairs.

Table of Contents

Property operating expense recoveries from tenants of common area maintenance, real estate, and other recoverable costs are recognized as revenues in the period that the related expenses are incurred.

Earnings Per Share Information:

The Company presents both basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock, where such exercise or conversion would result in a lower per share amount. Restricted stock was included in the computation of diluted earnings per share and stock option awards were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because the option awards would have been antidilutive for the periods presented.

Cash and Cash Equivalents:

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents.

Restricted Cash:

Restricted cash represents reserves used to pay real estate taxes, insurance, and tenant improvements. At June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had restricted cash in the amount of $1.0 million and $1.3 million, respectively, which was included in other assets on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Fair Value Measurement:

The Company determines fair value in accordance with ASC Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurement” for financial assets and liabilities. This standard defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures.

Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Where available, fair value is based on observable market prices or parameters or derived from such prices or parameters. Where observable prices or inputs are not available, valuation models are applied. These valuation techniques involve some level of management estimation and judgment, the degree of which is dependent on the price transparency for the instruments or market and the instruments’ complexity.

Assets and liabilities disclosed at fair values are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure their fair value. Hierarchical levels, which are defined by ASC 820-10-35, are directly related to the amount of subjectivity associated with the inputs to fair valuation of these assets and liabilities. Determining which category an asset or liability falls within the hierarchy requires significant judgment and the Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter.

Level 1 — Valuations based on quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in active markets.

Level 2 — Valuations based on observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.

Level 3 — Valuations based on unobservable inputs reflecting management’s own assumptions, consistent with reasonably available assumptions made by other market participants. These valuations require significant judgment.

Income Taxes:

The Company is organized and conducts its operations to qualify as a REIT for Federal income tax purposes. Accordingly, the Company is generally not subject to Federal income taxation on the portion of its distributable income that qualifies as REIT taxable income, to the extent that it distributes at least 90% of its REIT taxable income to its stockholders and complies with certain other requirements as defined.

The Company also participates in certain activities conducted by entities which elected to be treated as taxable subsidiaries under the Code. As such, the Company is subject to federal, state, and local taxes on the income from these activities.

The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method as required by the provisions of ASC 740-10-30. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are established based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company provides a valuation allowance for deferred tax assets for which it does not consider realization of such assets to be more likely than not.

Table of Contents

ASC 740-10-65 addresses the determination of whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements. Under ASC 740-10-65, the Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. ASC 740-10-65 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties on income taxes, accounting in interim periods and requires increased disclosures. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, the Company had determined that no liabilities are required in connection with unrecognized tax positions.

Concentrations of Credit Risk:

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash and cash equivalents, which from time-to-time exceed the federal depository insurance coverage. Management believes that the Company is not exposed to any significant credit risk due to the credit worthiness of the financial institutions.

Stock-Based Compensation:

The Company has a stock-based compensation plan, which is described below in Note 7. The Company accounts for stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718-30-30, which establishes accounting for stock-based awards exchanged for employee services. Under the provisions of ASC 718-10-35, share-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the fair value of the award, and is expensed at the grant date (for the portion that vests immediately) or ratably over the respective vesting periods.

New Accounting Pronouncements

During June 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2014-12, “Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period.” ASU 2014-12 provides explicit guidance on how to account for share-based payments that require a specific performance target to be achieved which may be achieved after an employee completes the requisite service period. ASU 2014-12 is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2015 and may be applied either prospectively or retrospectively. ASU 2014-12 is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

During May 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers”, which supersedes nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under GAAP. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenues when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled for those goods or services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle and, in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing GAAP. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods therein, using either of the following transaction methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). The Company is currently evaluating the impact of its pending adoption of ASU 2014-09 on its consolidated financial statements and has not yet determined the method by which the standard will be adopted in 2017.

In April 2014, the FASB issued 2014-08, “Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity.” The amendments in ASU 2014-08 change the criteria for reporting a discontinued operation and require new disclosures of both discontinued operations and certain other disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation. Only disposals representing a strategic shift in operations should be presented as discontinued operations. This accounting standard update is effective for annual filings beginning on or after December 15, 2014. Early adoption is permitted. The impact of the adoption of ASU 2014-08 on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, cash flows and disclosures will be based on the Company’s future disposal activity.

3. REAL ESTATE:

On April 9, 2014, the Company acquired a 226,000 square foot building located on 15.1 acres of land in Windsor Locks, CT for $14.2 million, subject to the assumption of a $9 million mortgage that bears interest at 6.07%. A principal payment of $3 million is due in March 2017, with the balance of the loan maturing in March 2020. The distribution facility is triple net leased to Ford Motor Company.

On April 23, 2014, the Company acquired a 75,000 square foot industrial building located on 7.8 acres of land in Parsippany, NJ for $3.3 million. The equity was financed from the revolving credit line facility.

The identifiable assets and liabilities associated with the Windsor Locks and Parsippany properties, are based upon management’s best available information at the time of the preparation of the financial statements. However, the business acquisition accounting for these properties are not complete and accordingly, such estimates of the value of acquired assets and liabilities are provisional until the valuations are finalized. Therefore, the provisional measurements of fair value reflected are subject to change and such changes could be significant. The Company expects to finalize the valuations and complete the purchase price allocations as soon as practical, but no later than one year from the acquisition dates.

On July 2, 2014, the Company acquired an 84,000 square foot parking lot in Long Island City, Queens, NY for $28.5 million that is leased to FedEx Ground. The acquisition was financed, in part, by means of a $13 million bridge loan with Capital One and the equity financed from the revolving credit facility. Permanent financing of $15.5 million is expected to close in August 2014 with People’s United Bank to replace the bridge loan.

As disclosed in Note 1, effective January 17, 2013, the Company, through the UPREIT, acquired from Wu/Lighthouse Portfolio, LLC all of the outstanding ownership interests in 25 commercial properties located in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in exchange for 33.29% of the outstanding limited partnership interests in the UPREIT. The Acquired Properties had a gross asset value of approximately $198 million, subject to approximately $118.0 million in aggregate outstanding mortgage indebtedness, which was assumed by the UPREIT. In addition, the Company acquired other assets and assumed certain liabilities in connection with the transaction. Paul Cooper, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer was a 6% owner and principal of Wu/Lighthouse Portfolio, Louis Sheinker, the Company’s President and Chief Operating Officer and a director was a 6.666% owner and principal of Wu/Lighthouse Portfolio, and Jerome Cooper the Company’s Chairman Emeritus owned a .666% interest.

4. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS:

On May 2, 2013, Shelter Express Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, completed the sale of all of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Shelter Electric Maintenance Corp. (“SEM”).

8. EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE:

In accordance with ASC Topic 260 “Earnings Per Share,” basic earnings per common share (“Basic EPS”) is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per common share (“Diluted EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents and convertible securities then outstanding. There were no common share equivalents for any of the periods presented in dilutive earnings per share.

11. FAIR VALUE:

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

The fair value of the Company’s financial instruments are determined based upon applicable accounting guidance. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The guidance requires disclosure of the level within the fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements fall, including measurements using quoted process in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1), quoted process for similar instruments in active markets or quoted process for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active (Level 2), and significant valuation assumptions that are not readily observable in the market (Level 3).

The fair values of cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses, available-for-sale securities and secured revolving credit facility approximated their carrying value because of the short-term nature based on Level 1 inputs. The fair values of mortgage notes payable and pension withdrawal liability are based on borrowing rates available to the Company, which are Level 2 inputs. The following table summarizes the carrying values and the estimated fair values of the financial instruments (in thousands):

Critical Accounting Policies:

Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations is based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the use of estimates and assumptions that could affect the reported amounts in our condensed consolidated financial statements. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Please refer to the section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013, entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Critical Accounting Policies” for a discussion of our critical accounting policies. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, there were no material changes to these policies. Set forth below is a summary of the accounting policies that management believes are critical to the preparation of the consolidated financial statements included in this report.

Recent Developments:

Secured Revolving Credit Facility

On April 8, 2014, the Company entered into a Loan Agreement (the “Loan Agreement”) with Capital One, N.A. (the “Lender”). The Loan Agreement is for a $45 million senior revolving credit facility, secured by certain properties located in NYC (the “Borrowers”) by means of, among other things, negative pledges relating to such properties. The intended uses of the proceeds of this facility include funding of the acquisitions of additional properties as well as working capital expenditures.

The facility is a full obligation of the Borrowers, together with GTJ REIT, Inc. and GTJ Realty, LP (the “Guarantors”). Subject to certain conditions, the facility is available at any time prior to the April 2016 maturity of this facility, in minimum principal amounts of $1 million. Due to the revolving nature of the facility, amounts prepaid under the facility may be borrowed again. The line of credit facility has an initial term of two years, with a one-year extension option, subject to certain other customary conditions. The Borrowers may prepay the facility, in whole or in part, at any time without fees or penalty, subject to reimbursement of the Lender’s breakage costs associated with the prepayment of LIBOR rate loans. The interest-only facility includes a floating rate using (i) LIBOR plus an applicable margin (200 basis points (bps) to 335 bps), or (ii) base rate plus an applicable margin, depending upon the overall leverage of the properties. A commitment fee of 35 bps (if less than 50% of the facility is used), and 25 bps (if 50% or more is being used) will accrue on unused portions of the commitments under the facility.

The principal amount of the line of credit facility and all interest, fees, and other amounts owing under the line of credit are guaranteed by the Guarantors under the terms and provisions of the Guaranty Agreement (the “Guaranty”). The continuing ability to borrow under the line of credit facility will be subject to the ongoing compliance of the Guarantors and the Borrowers with various affirmative and negative covenants, including, among others, with respect to liens, indebtedness, investments, and distributions. The Loan Agreement contains events of default and remedies customary for loan transactions of this sort including, among others, those related to a default in the payment of principal or interest, a material inaccuracy of a representation or warranty, and a default with regard to performance of certain covenants. The Loan Agreement includes customary representations and warranties of the Guarantors and the Borrowers, which must continue to be true and correct in all material respects as a condition to future draws. In addition, the Loan Agreement also includes customary events of default, in certain cases subject to customary cure, following which, amounts outstanding under the facility may be accelerated.

Revenues

Revenues increased $1 million, or 11%, to $9.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from $8.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increase is principally due to scheduled rent increases, increased tenant reimbursable income and $0.3 million from the acquisition of the Windsor Locks, CT property in the second quarter of 2014.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses decreased $0.5 million, or 8%, to $5.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from $6.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The decrease is primarily due to certain scheduled maintenance projects performed during 2013 and lower environmental and insurance costs incurred in 2014.

Interest Expense

Interest expense increased $0.1 million or 5%, to $2.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increase is due to the assumption of debt for one of the acquired properties in the second quarter of 2014 and equity financing for two acquisitions through our line of credit facility.

Acquisition Costs

Acquisition costs increased $0.1 million or 52% to $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013. The increase is due to the two properties acquired in the second quarter of 2014.

Income (Loss) from Discontinued Operations

Loss from discontinued operations was $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 reflecting the wind down of discontinued operations.

The 2013 results included activity from the January 17, 2013 acquisition effective date through June 30, 2013.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses increased $0.7 million, or 6%, to $12.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $11.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The increase is primarily due to the 2014 results reflecting a full six months of activity for the Acquired Properties and the acquisition of two properties in 2014. The 2013 results included activity from the January 17, 2013 acquisition effective date through June 30, 2013. Additionally, there was an increase in weather related property operating costs and compensation expense in 2014.

Interest Expense

Interest expense increased $0.4 million or 9%, to $4.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $4.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013. The increase is principally due to the 2014 results reflecting a full six months of activity for the Acquired Properties and the acquisition of two properties in the second quarter of 2014. The 2013 results included activity from the January 17, 2013 effective date through June 30, 2013.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We believe that our liquidity needs will be satisfied through cash flows generated by operations and financing activities. Rental revenue, and expense recoveries from tenants are our principal sources of cash that we use to pay operating expenses, debt service, recurring capital expenditures and the distributions required to maintain our REIT status. We seek to increase cash flows from our buildings by maintaining quality standards for our buildings that promote high occupancy rates and permit increases in rental rates while reducing tenant turnover and controlling operating expenses. We believe that our revenue and use of our new revolving credit facility will continue to provide the funds necessary for our short-term liquidity needs.

Our long-term liquidity needs consist primarily of funds necessary to pay for acquisitions, non-recurring capital expenditures and scheduled debt maturities. We intend to satisfy our long-term liquidity needs through cash flow from operations, use of our new revolving credit facility and long-term secured and unsecured borrowings and refinancings.

Net Cash Flows:

For the 2013 period, cash used in investing activities related to property improvements.

Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities was $6.4 million and $5.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization)

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Our EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA computation may not be comparable to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA reported by other companies that interpret the definitions of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. Management believes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be meaningful measures of a REIT’s performance because they are widely followed by industry analysts, lenders and investors and are used by management as measures of performance. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA should be considered along with, but not as alternatives to, net income as measures of our operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA allows investors to measure our operating performance independent of our capital structure and indebtedness. Additionally, acquisition related costs and discontinued operations expenses have been excluded from Adjusted EBITDA in order to assist with measuring core real estate operating performance.

The reconciliation of Net Income (loss) to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 are as follows (in thousands):

Funds from Operations and Adjusted Funds from Operations

We consider Funds from Operations (“FFO”) and Adjusted Funds from Operations (“AFFO”), each of which are non-GAAP measures, to be additional measures of an equity REIT’s operating performance. We report FFO in addition to our net income (loss) and net cash provided by operating activities. Management has adopted the definition suggested by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) and defines FFO to mean net income (loss) computed in accordance with GAAP; excluding gains or losses from sales of property, excluding asset impairments, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization and loss from discontinued operations.

Management considers FFO a meaningful, additional measure of operating performance because it primarily excludes the assumption that the value of our real estate assets diminishes predictably over time and industry analysts have accepted it as a performance measure. FFO is presented to assist investors in analyzing our performance. It is helpful as it excludes various items included in net income that are not indicative of our operating performance, such as gains or losses from sales of property and depreciation and amortization. We define Core Funds from Operations (“Core FFO”) as FFO plus acquisition costs.

However, FFO and Core FFO:

 

    does not represent cash flows from operating activities in accordance with GAAP (which, unlike FFO, generally reflects all cash effects of transactions and other events in the determination of net income); and

 

    should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our performance.

FFO, Core FFO and AFFO as defined by us may not be comparable to similarly titled items reported by other real estate investment trusts due to possible differences in the application of the NAREIT definition used by such REITs. The following table provides a reconciliation of net loss in accordance with GAAP to FFO, Core FFO and AFFO for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 (in thousands, except share and per share data):

Cash Payments for Financing

Payment of interest under our mortgage notes payable will consume a portion of our cash flow, reducing net income and consequently, the distributions to be made to our stockholders.

Trend in Financial Resources

We expect to receive additional rent payments over time due to scheduled increases in rent set forth in the leases on our properties. It should be noted, however, that the additional rent payments are expected to result in an approximately equal obligation to make additional distributions to stockholders, and will therefore not result in a material increase in working capital.

Divestiture

On February 16, 2012, we received a notice from the Joint Industry Board of the Electrical Industry claiming a pension withdrawal liability in the amount of $1.5 million in connection with the divestiture. The Company determined the liability was probable and the Company agreed to pay the obligation in monthly installments of approximately $8,100 over a twenty year term. As of June 30, 2014, the remaining liability of this obligation was approximately $1.3 million and is included in other liabilities on our condensed consolidated balance sheet.

Inflation

Low to moderate levels of inflation during the past several years have favorably impacted our operations by stabilizing operating expenses and borrowing costs. At the same time, low inflation has had the indirect effect of reducing our ability to increase tenant rents. However, our properties have tenants whose leases include expense reimbursements and other provisions to minimize the effect of inflation.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Market risks that arise from changes in interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and other market changes affect market sensitive instruments. In pursuing our business strategies, the primary market risk which we are exposed to is interest rate risk. As of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, we did not have any variable interest rate liabilities.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We maintain a system of disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act). As required by Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act, management, under the direction of our Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, reviewed and performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. During our review we determined that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that (i) information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and (ii) information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
