NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2015
(Unaudited)


Note 1 — Organization
American Realty Capital New York City REIT, Inc. (including, as required by context, New York City Operating Partnership L.P., and its subsidiaries, the “Company”) was incorporated on December 19, 2013 as a Maryland corporation and elected and qualified to be taxed as a real estate investment trust for U.S. federal income tax purposes (“REIT”) beginning with its taxable year ended December 31, 2014. On April 24, 2014, the Company commenced its initial public offering (the "IPO") on a "reasonable best efforts" basis of up to 30.0 million shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, at a price of $25.00 per share, subject to certain volume and other discounts, for total gross proceeds of up to $750.0 million, pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-194135) (the "Registration Statement") filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Registration Statement also covered up to 10.5 million shares available pursuant to a distribution reinvestment plan (the "DRIP") under which the Company's common stockholders may elect to have their distributions reinvested in additional shares of the Company's common stock at a price of $23.75 per share, which is equal to 95% of the offering price in the IPO.
On May 29, 2014, the Company received and accepted subscriptions in excess of the minimum offering amount for the IPO of $2.0 million in shares, broke general escrow and issued shares of common stock to initial investors who were admitted as stockholders of the Company. In February 2015, as permitted, the Company reallocated the remaining 10.0 million DRIP shares available under the Registration Statement to the primary offering. On May 22, 2015, the Company registered an additional 25.0 million shares to be issued pursuant to the DRIP pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-204433). The Company closed its IPO on May 31, 2015, and continued to accept subscriptions in process as of that date. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had 30.2 million shares of common stock outstanding, including unvested restricted shares and shares issued pursuant to the DRIP, and had received total gross proceeds from the IPO of $750.5 million, inclusive of $19.2 million from the DRIP. The per share purchase price in the IPO was up to $25.00 per share (including the maximum allowed to be charged for commissions and fees) and the per share purchase price of shares issued under the DRIP is equal to $23.75 per share, which is equal to 95% of the offering price in the primary offering. Beginning with the net asset value ("NAV") pricing date, the per share price for shares under the DRIP will vary quarterly and will be equal to the NAV per share, as determined by New York City Advisors, LLC (the "Advisor"). The NAV pricing date means the date on which the Company first publishes an estimated per share NAV, which will be on or prior to October 26, 2016, which is 150 days following the second anniversary from the date the Company broke escrow in the IPO.
The Company was formed to invest its assets in properties in the five boroughs of New York City, with a focus on Manhattan. The Company may also purchase for investment purposes certain real estate investment assets that accompany office properties, including retail spaces and amenities, as well as hospitality assets, residential assets and other property types exclusively in New York City. All such properties may be acquired and owned by the Company alone or jointly with another party. As of September 30, 2015, the Company owned five properties consisting of 841,868 rentable square feet.
Substantially all of the Company’s business is conducted through New York City Operating Partnership, L.P. (the “OP”), a Delaware limited partnership. The Company is the sole general partner and holds substantially all of the units of limited partner interests in the OP (“OP units”). The Advisor contributed $2,020 to the OP in exchange for 90 OP units, which represents a nominal percentage of the aggregate OP ownership. A holder of OP units has the right to convert OP units for the cash value of a corresponding number of shares of the Company's common stock or, at the option of the OP, a corresponding number of shares of the Company's common stock, in accordance with the limited partnership agreement of the OP, provided, however, that such OP units must have been outstanding for at least one year. The remaining rights of the limited partners in the OP are limited, however, and do not include the ability to replace the general partner or to approve the sale, purchase or refinancing of the OP's assets.
The Company has no direct employees. The Advisor has been retained by the Company to manage the Company's affairs on a day-to-day basis. The Company has retained New York City Properties, LLC (the “Property Manager”) to serve as the Company’s property manager. Realty Capital Securities, LLC (the “Dealer Manager”) served as the dealer manager of the IPO and continues to provide the Company with various services. The Advisor, Property Manager and Dealer Manager are under common control with AR Capital, LLC ("ARC"), the parent of the Company's sponsor, American Realty Capital III, LLC (the "Sponsor"), as a result of which they are related parties, and each of which has received or will receive compensation, fees and expense reimbursements for services related to the IPO and the investment and management of the Company's assets. The Advisor, New York City Special Limited Partner, LLC (the "Special Limited Partner"), Property Manager and Dealer Manager have also received or will also receive fees, distributions and other compensation during the offering, acquisition, operational and liquidation stages.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company included herein were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The information furnished includes all adjustments and accruals of a normal recurring nature, which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of results for the interim periods. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the entire year or any subsequent interim period.
These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2014, which are included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2015. There have been no significant changes to the Company's significant accounting policies during three or nine months ended September 30, 2015 other than the updates described below.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued revised guidance relating to revenue recognition. Under the revised guidance, an entity is required to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The revised guidance allows entities to apply either a full retrospective or modified retrospective transition method upon adoption. In July 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of the revised guidance by one year to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, although entities will be allowed to early adopt the guidance as of the original effective date. The Company has not yet selected a transition method and is currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In January 2015, the FASB issued updated guidance that eliminates extraordinary item classification from GAAP, which was the concept of an event or transaction that is unusual in nature and occurs infrequently being treated as an extraordinary item. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Any amendments may be applied either prospectively or retrospectively to all prior periods presented in the financial statements. Early adoption is permitted provided that the guidance is applied from the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. The Company has opted to adopt this revised guidance early and has determined that there has been no impact to its financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
In February 2015, the FASB amended the accounting for consolidation of certain legal entities. The amendments modify the evaluation of whether certain legal entities are variable interest entities ("VIEs") or voting interest entities, eliminate the presumption that a general partner should consolidate a limited partnership and affect the consolidation analysis of reporting entities that are involved with VIEs (particularly those that have fee arrangements and related party relationships). The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted for financial statements that have not previously been issued. The Company currently has no VIEs and is evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In April 2015, the FASB amended the presentation of debt issuance costs on the balance sheet. The amendment requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability. In August 2015, the FASB added that, for line of credit arrangements, the SEC staff would not object to an entity deferring and presenting debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequently amortizing the deferred debt issuance costs ratably over the term of the line, regardless of whether or not there are any outstanding borrowings. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted for financial statements that have not previously been issued. The revised guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

(Unaudited)

In September 2015, the FASB issued an update that eliminates the requirement to adjust provisional amounts from a business combination and the related impact on earnings by restating prior period financial statements for measurement period adjustments. The new guidance requires that the cumulative impact of measurement period adjustments on current and prior periods, including the prior period impact on depreciation, amortization and other income statement items and their related tax effects, shall be recognized in the period the adjustment amount is determined. The cumulative adjustment would be reflected within the respective financial statement line items affected. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. The Company has elected to adopt the new guidance as of September 30, 2015. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
Note 3 — Real Estate Investments
On March 27, 2015, the Company, through a wholly owned subsidiary of the OP, acquired for investment the fee simple interest in an institutional-quality office building located at 123 William Street in Downtown Manhattan ("123 William Street"). The seller of 123 William Street was EEGO 123 William Owner, LLC, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of EEGO-ARC 123 William JV, LLC, a joint venture in which New York REIT, Inc. ("NYRT") held a $35.1 million non-controlling preferred equity interest. The sponsor of NYRT is also the Sponsor of the Company. The purchase price of 123 William Street was $253.0 million, exclusive of closing costs and net of purchase price adjustments, and was funded with proceeds from the Company's IPO and a loan from Capital One, National Association (See Note 5 — Mortgage Note Payable). The Company accounted for the purchase of 123 William Street as a business combination and incurred acquisition related costs of $6.0 million, which are reflected in the acquisition and transaction related line item of the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

Note 4 — Investment Securities
As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had an investment in an equity security with a fair value of $0.5 million. The equity security consists of a mutual fund managed by an affiliate of the Sponsor (see Note 9 — Related Party Transactions and Arrangements). This investment is considered to be an available-for-sale security and therefore increases or decreases in the fair value of this investment are recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss as a component of equity on the consolidated balance sheets unless the security is considered to be other-than-temporarily impaired, at which time the losses would be reclassified to expense.

The Company's investment in this equity security has been in a continuous unrealized loss position for greater than twelve months. The Company believes that the decline in fair value is solely a factor of market conditions and, as such, considers the unrealized losses as of September 30, 2015 to be temporary and, therefore, no impairment was required to be recorded during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. The Company did not record an impairment charge during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.

Note 6 — Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company determines fair value based on quoted prices when available or through the use of alternative approaches, such as discounting the expected cash flows using market interest rates commensurate with the credit quality and duration of the instrument. This alternative approach also reflects the contractual terms of the instrument, as applicable, including the period to maturity, and may use observable market-based inputs, including interest rate curves and implied volatilities, and unobservable inputs, such as expected volatility. The guidance defines three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value.

AMERICAN REALTY CAPITAL NEW YORK CITY REIT, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

(Unaudited)

 
Level 1
Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities that the reporting entity has the ability to access at the measurement date.
 
 
 
 
 
Level 2
Inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset and liability or can be corroborated with observable market data for substantially the entire contractual term of the asset or liability.
 
 
 
 
 
Level 3
Unobservable inputs that reflect the entity's own assumptions that market participants would use in the pricing of the asset or liability and are consequently not based on market activity, but rather through particular valuation techniques.
The determination of where an asset or liability falls in the hierarchy requires significant judgment and considers factors specific to the asset or liability. In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter and depending on various factors, it is possible that an asset or liability may be classified differently from quarter to quarter. However, the Company expects that changes in classifications between levels will be rare.
The Company has an investment in a real estate income fund that is traded in active markets and therefore, due to the availability of quoted market prices in active markets, classified this investment as Level 1 in the fair value hierarchy.
The following table presents information about the Company's asset measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, aggregated by the level in the fair value hierarchy within which that instrument falls.

There were no transfers between levels of the fair value hierarchy during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.
Financial instruments not carried at fair value
The Company is required to disclose at least annually the fair value of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate the value. The fair value of short-term financial instruments such as cash and cash equivalents, receivables for sale of common stock, accounts payable and distributions payable approximates their carrying value on the consolidated balance sheet due to their short-term nature.
As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company did not have any financial instruments not carried at fair value or an amount that approximates fair value. The fair value of the mortgage note payable is deemed to be equivalent to its carrying value because it bears interest at a variable rate that fluctuates with market and there has been no change in the credit risk or credit markets since origination.
Note 7 — Common Stock
The Company had 30.2 million shares of common stock outstanding, including unvested restricted shares and shares issued pursuant to the DRIP, and had received total proceeds of $750.5 million, inclusive of $19.2 million from the DRIP, as of September 30, 2015. The Company had 20.6 million shares of common stock outstanding, including unvested restricted shares and shares issued pursuant to the DRIP, and had received total gross proceeds of $509.9 million, inclusive of $4.5 million from the DRIP, as of December 31, 2014.

On May 22, 2014, the Company's board of directors authorized, and the Company declared, a distribution payable to stockholders of record each day during the applicable period equal to $0.0041438356 per day, which is equivalent to $1.5125 per annum, per share of common stock. The distributions began to accrue on June 13, 2014, which date represents the closing of the Company’s initial property acquisition. The distributions are payable by the 5th day following each month end to stockholders of record at the close of business each day during the prior month. Distribution payments are dependent on the availability of funds. The board of directors may reduce the amount of distributions paid or suspend distribution payments at any time and therefore distribution payments are not assured.
The Company has a Share Repurchase Program ("SRP") that enables stockholders, subject to certain conditions and limitations, to sell their shares to the Company. Under the SRP, stockholders may request that the Company repurchase all or any portion of their shares of common stock, if such repurchase does not impair the Company's capital or operations. Repurchases of shares of the Company's common stock, when requested, are at the Company's sole discretion and generally will be made quarterly. The Company funds repurchases from proceeds from the sale of common stock pursuant to the DRIP.

Fees Paid in Connection with the IPO
The Dealer Manager was paid fees and compensation in connection with the sale of the Company's common stock in the IPO. The Dealer Manager was paid a selling commission of up to 7.0% of the per share purchase price of offering proceeds before reallowance of commissions earned by participating broker-dealers. In addition, the Dealer Manager was paid up to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of shares as a dealer manager fee. The Dealer Manager was able to reallow its dealer manager fee to participating broker-dealers. A participating broker-dealer had the option to elect to receive a fee equal to 7.5% of the gross proceeds from the sale of shares (not including selling commissions and dealer manager fees) by such participating broker-dealer, with 2.5% thereof paid at the time of such sale and 1.0% thereof paid on each anniversary of the closing of such sale up to and including the fifth anniversary of the closing of such sale. If this option was elected, the dealer manager fee would have been reduced to 2.5% of gross proceeds (not including selling commissions and dealer manager fees).

Fees and Participations Paid in Connection With the Operations of the Company
The Advisor is paid an acquisition fee of 1.5% of the contract purchase price of each acquired property and 1.5% of the amount advanced for a loan or other investment. The Advisor is also reimbursed for expenses actually incurred related to selecting, evaluating and acquiring assets on the Company's behalf, regardless of whether the Company actually acquires the related assets. Specifically, the Company pays the Advisor or its affiliates for any services provided for which they incur investment-related expenses, or insourced expenses. Such insourced expenses are fixed initially at and may not exceed 0.50% of the contract purchase price of each property and 0.50% of the amount advanced for each loan or other investment, which is paid at the closing of each such investment. The Advisor is also reimbursed for legal expenses incurred in the process of acquiring properties, in an amount not to exceed 0.10% of the contract purchase price. In addition, the Company also pays third parties, or reimburses the Advisor for any investment-related expenses due to third parties. In no event will the total of all acquisition fees, acquisition expenses and any financing coordination fees (as described below) payable with respect to the Company's portfolio of investments exceed 4.5% of the contract purchase price or 4.5% of the amount advanced for all loans or other investments. Once the proceeds from the primary offering have been fully invested, the aggregate amount of acquisition fees and any financing coordination fees may not exceed 4.5% of the contract purchase price and the amount advanced for a loan or other investment, as applicable, for all the assets acquired.
If the Advisor provides services in connection with the origination or refinancing of any debt that the Company obtains and uses to acquire properties or to make other permitted investments, or that is assumed, directly or indirectly, in connection with the acquisition of properties, the Company pays the Advisor a financing coordination fee equal to 0.75% of the amount made available or outstanding under such financing, subject to certain limitations.
Until September 30, 2015, for its asset management services, the Company issued to the Advisor an asset management subordinated participation by causing the OP to issue (subject to periodic approval by the board of directors) to the Advisor performance-based, restricted, forfeitable partnership units in the OP designated as “Class B Units” on a quarterly basis in an amount equal to: (i) the product of (y) 0.1875% multiplied by (z) the cost of the Company's assets (until the NAV pricing date, then the lower of the cost of assets and the fair value of the Company's assets); divided by (ii) the value of one share of common stock as of the last day of such calendar quarter, which is equal initially to $22.50 (the primary offering price minus selling commissions and dealer manager fees) and, at such time as the Company calculates NAV, to per share NAV. The Class B Units are intended to be profits interests and will vest, and no longer be subject to forfeiture, at such time as: (a) the value of the OP's assets plus all distributions made by the Company to its stockholders equals or exceeds the total amount of capital contributed by investors plus a 6.0% cumulative, pretax, non-compounded annual return thereon, or the "economic hurdle;" (b) any one of the following events occurs concurrently with or subsequently to the achievement of the economic hurdle described above: (i) a listing of the Company's common stock on a national securities exchange; (ii) a transaction to which the Company or the OP is a party, as a result of which OP units or the Company's common stock are or will be exchanged for or converted into the right, or the holders of such securities will otherwise be entitled, to receive cash, securities or other property or any combination thereof; or (iii) the termination of the advisory agreement without cause by an affirmative vote of a majority of the Company's independent directors after the economic hurdle has been met; and (c) the Advisor pursuant to the advisory agreement is providing services to the Company immediately prior to the occurrence of an event of the type described in clause (b) above, unless the failure to provide such services is attributable to the termination without cause of the advisory agreement by an affirmative vote of the majority of the Company's independent directors after the economic hurdle has been met (the "performance condition"). The value of issued Class B Units will be determined and expensed when the Company deems the achievement of the performance condition to be probable. As of September 30, 2015, the Company cannot determine the probability of achieving the performance condition. The Advisor receives distributions on its vested and unvested Class B Units at the same rate as distributions received on the Company's common stock. Such distributions on issued Class B Units are expensed in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss until the performance condition is considered probable to occur. As of September 30, 2015, the Company's board of directors has approved the issuance of 115,798 Class B Units in connection with the arrangement. Beginning on October 1, 2015, the Company began paying asset management fees in cash, in shares, or a combination of both, the form of payment to be determined at the sole discretion of the Advisor. See Note 13 — Subsequent Events.

Unless the Company contracts with a third party, the Company pays the Property Manager a property management fee equal to: (i) for non-hotel properties, 4.0% of gross revenues from the properties managed, plus market-based leasing commissions; and (ii) for hotel properties, a market-based fee based on a percentage of gross revenues. The Company also reimburses the Property Manager for property-level expenses. The Property Manager may subcontract the performance of its property management and leasing services duties to third parties and pay all or a portion of its property management fee to the third parties with whom it contracts for these services.
The Company reimburses the Advisor’s costs of providing administrative services, subject to the limitation that the Company will not reimburse the Advisor for any amount by which the Company’s operating expenses at the end of the four preceding fiscal quarters exceeds the greater of (a) 2.0% of average invested assets and (b) 25.0% of net income other than any additions to reserves for depreciation, bad debt, impairments or other similar non-cash expenses and excluding any gain from the sale of assets for that period, unless the Company's independent directors determine that such excess was justified based on unusual and nonrecurring factors which they deem sufficient, in which case the excess amount may be reimbursed to the Advisor in subsequent periods. Additionally, the Company reimburses the Advisor for personnel costs in connection with other services; however, the Company may not reimburse the Advisor for personnel costs in connection with services for which the Advisor receives acquisition fees or real estate commissions. No reimbursement was incurred from the Advisor for providing administrative services during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.
The Dealer Manager and its affiliates also provide other general professional services. The Advisor pays general and administrative expenses on behalf of the Company, for which the Company subsequently reimburses the Advisor.

(Unaudited)

Fees and Participations Paid in Connection with Liquidation or Listing
The Company will pay to the Advisor an annual subordinated performance fee calculated on the basis of the Company’s return to stockholders, payable annually in arrears, such that for any year in which investors receive payment of 6.0% per annum, the Advisor will be entitled to 15.0% of the excess return, provided that the amount paid to the Advisor does not exceed 10.0% of the aggregate return for such year, and that the amount paid to the Advisor will not be paid unless investors receive a return of capital contributions. This fee will be paid only upon the sale of assets, distributions or other event which results in the return on stockholders’ capital exceeding 6.0% per annum. No subordinated performance fees were incurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.
The Company will pay a brokerage commission to the Advisor or its affiliates on the sale of properties, not to exceed the lesser of 2.0% of the contract sale price of the property and 50.0% of the total brokerage commission paid if a third party broker is also involved; provided, however, that in no event may the real estate commissions paid to the Advisor, its affiliates and unaffiliated third parties exceed the lesser of 6.0% of the contract sales price and a reasonable, customary and competitive real estate commission, in each case, payable to the Advisor if the Advisor or its affiliates, as determined by a majority of the independent directors, provided a substantial amount of services in connection with the sale. No such fees were incurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.
Upon a sale of all or substantially all assets, the Special Limited Partner will receive a subordinated distribution from the OP equal to 15.0% of remaining net sale proceeds after return of capital contributions to investors plus payment to investors of an annual 6.0% cumulative, pre-tax non-compounded return on the capital contributed by investors. The Special Limited Partner will not be entitled to the subordinated participation in net sale proceeds unless the Company’s investors have received a return of their capital plus a 6.0% cumulative non-compounded annual return on their capital contributions. No such participation in net sales proceeds became due and payable during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.
If the Company’s shares of common stock are listed on a national exchange, the Special Limited Partner will receive a subordinated incentive listing distribution from the OP equal to 15.0% of the amount by which the Company’s market value plus distributions exceeds the aggregate capital contributed by investors plus an amount equal to a 6.0% cumulative, pre-tax non-compounded annual return to investors. The Special Limited Partner will not be entitled to the subordinated incentive listing distribution unless investors have received a 6.0% cumulative, pre-tax non-compounded annual return on their capital contributions. No such distributions were incurred during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014. Neither the Special Limited Partner nor any of its affiliates can earn both the subordinated participation in net sales proceeds and the subordinated incentive listing distribution.
Upon termination or non-renewal of the advisory agreement with or without cause, the Special Limited Partner will be entitled to receive distributions from the OP equal to 15.0% of the amount by which the sum of the Company’s market value plus distributions exceeds the sum of the aggregate capital contributed by investors plus an amount equal to an annual 6.0% cumulative, pre-tax, non-compounded annual return to investors. The Special Limited Partner may elect to defer its right to receive a subordinated distribution upon termination until either a listing on a national securities exchange or other liquidity event occurs.
Note 10 — Economic Dependency
Under various agreements, the Company has engaged or will engage the Advisor, its affiliates and entities under common control with the Advisor to provide certain services that are essential to the Company, including asset management services, supervision of the management and leasing of properties owned by the Company, asset acquisition and disposition decisions, the sale of shares of the Company's common stock available for issue, transfer agency services, as well as other administrative responsibilities for the Company including accounting services, transaction management services and investor relations.
As a result of these relationships, the Company is dependent upon the Advisor and its affiliates. In the event that the Advisor and its affiliates are unable to provide the Company with the respective services, the Company will be required to find alternative providers of these services.

Note 11 — Share-Based Compensation
Restricted Share Plan
The Company has an employee and director incentive restricted share plan (the “RSP”), which provides for the automatic grant of 1,333 restricted shares of common stock to each of the independent directors, without any further approval by the Company’s board of directors or the stockholders, after initial election to the board of directors and after each annual stockholder meeting, with such shares vesting annually beginning with the one year anniversary of initial election to the board of directors and the date of the next annual meeting, respectively. Restricted stock issued to independent directors will vest over a five-year period in increments of 20.0% per annum. The RSP provides the Company with the ability to grant awards of restricted shares to the Company's directors, officers and employees (if the Company ever has employees), employees of the Advisor and its affiliates, employees of entities that provide services to the Company, directors of the Advisor or of entities that provide services to the Company, certain consultants to the Company and the Advisor and its affiliates or to entities that provide services to the Company. The total number of common shares granted under the RSP shall not exceed 5.0% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock on a fully diluted basis at any time and in any event will not exceed 1.5 million shares (as such number may be adjusted for stock splits, stock dividends, combinations and similar events).
Restricted share awards entitle the recipient to receive shares of common stock from the Company under terms that provide for vesting over a specified period of time. For restricted share awards granted prior to July 1, 2015, such awards would typically be forfeited with respect to the unvested shares upon the termination of the recipient's employment or other relationship with the Company. For restricted share awards granted on or after July 1, 2015, such awards provide for accelerated vesting of the portion of the unvested shares scheduled to vest in the year of the recipient's voluntary termination or the failure to be re-elected to the board. Restricted shares may not, in general, be sold or otherwise transferred until restrictions are removed and the shares have vested. Holders of restricted shares may receive cash distributions prior to the time that the restrictions on the restricted shares have lapsed. Any distributions payable in shares of common stock shall be subject to the same restrictions as the underlying restricted shares.
The following table displays restricted share award activity during the nine months ended September 30, 2015:

As of September 30, 2015, the Company had $0.1 million of unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested restricted share awards granted under the Company's RSP. That cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period of 4.4 years. Restricted share awards are expensed in accordance with the service period required. Compensation expense related to restricted stock was approximately $18,000 and $19,000, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. Compensation expense related to restricted stock was approximately $4,000 and $8,000, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014. Compensation expense related to restricted stock is recorded as general and administrative expense in the accompanying consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss.
Other Share-Based Compensation
The Company may issue common stock in lieu of cash to pay fees earned by the Company's directors at the respective director's election. There are no restrictions on the shares issued. There were no shares of common stock issued in lieu of cash during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 or 2014.

Note 13 — Subsequent Events
The Company has evaluated subsequent events through the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and determined that there have not been any events that have occurred that would require adjustments to disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, except for the following:
On October 1, 2015, the Company announced that it intends to enter into joint venture agreements with NYRT, which is intended to better align interests between the Company and NYRT and to facilitate the continued growth and diversification of both portfolios with reduced need to raise additional equity capital. Any joint venture agreement will require approval by the boards of the Company and NYRT.
On November 5, 2015, the Company, the OP and the Advisor entered into an amendment to the advisory agreement, which, among other things, provides that the Company will cease causing the OP to issue Class B Units in the OP to the Advisor or its assignees related to any period ending after September 30, 2015. Effective October 1, 2015, the Company began paying an asset management fee to the Advisor or its assignees as compensation for services rendered in connection with the management of the Company’s assets. The asset management fee is payable on the first business day of each month in the amount of 0.0625% multiplied by the cost of assets for the preceding monthly period. The asset management fee is payable to the Advisor or its assignees in cash, in shares, or a combination of both, the form of payment to be determined in the sole discretion of the Advisor. See Note 9 — Related Party Transactions and Arrangements. Concurrent with amending the advisory agreement, the Company made conforming amendments to the limited partnership agreement of the OP.
On November 9, 2015, ARC advised the Company that ARC and Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Apollo”) have mutually agreed to terminate an agreement, dated as of August 6, 2015, pursuant to which Apollo would have purchased a controlling interest in a newly formed company that would have owned a majority of the ongoing asset management business of ARC, including the Advisor and the Property Manager. The termination has no effect on the Company’s current management team.

On November 12, 2015, the Enforcement Section of the Massachusetts Securities Division filed an administrative complaint against the Dealer Manager. Neither the Company nor the Advisor is a named party in the administrative complaint. The Dealer Manager served as the dealer manager of the Company's IPO, which was completed in May 2015, and, together with its affiliates, has continued to provide certain services to the Company and the Advisor. The administrative complaint alleges fraudulent behavior in connection with proxy services provided by the Dealer Manager to another program sponsored by ARC. The Dealer Manager has previously solicited proxies on behalf of the Company, although the Advisor has determined at this time that the Dealer Manager will no longer provide such services to the Company. The administrative complaint alleges that employees of the Dealer Manager fabricated numerous shareholder proxy votes across multiple entities sponsored by ARC but does not specifically refer to any actions taken in connection with any of the Company's proxy solicitations.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are forward-looking statements. Those statements include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of American Realty Capital New York City REIT, Inc. (including, as required by context, New York City Operating Partnership, L.P. and its subsidiaries, the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") and members of our management team, as well as the assumptions on which such statements are based, and generally are identified by the use of words such as "may," "will," "seeks," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "expects," "plans," "intends," "should" or similar expressions. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes to future operating results over time, unless required by law.
The following are some of the risks and uncertainties, although not all risks and uncertainties, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those presented in our forward-looking statements:
All of our executive officers are also officers, managers or holders of a direct or indirect controlling interest in our advisor, New York City Advisors, LLC (the "Advisor"), our dealer manager, Realty Capital Securities, LLC (the "Dealer Manager") or other entities affiliated with the parent of our sponsor, AR Capital, LLC ("ARC"). As a result, our executive officers, our Advisor and its affiliates face conflicts of interest, including significant conflicts created by our Advisor's compensation arrangements with us and other investment programs advised by affiliates of ARC and conflicts in allocating time among these investment programs and us. These conflicts could result in unanticipated actions.
Because investment opportunities that are suitable for us may also be suitable for other investment programs advised by affiliates of ARC, our Advisor and its affiliates face conflicts of interest relating to the purchase of properties and other investments and such conflicts may not be resolved in our favor, meaning that we could invest in less attractive assets, which could reduce the investment return to our stockholders.
We are party to an investment opportunity allocation agreement with two other programs that are sponsored by American Realty Capital III, LLC (our "Sponsor"), pursuant to which we may not have the first opportunity to acquire all properties identified by our Advisor and its affiliates.
No public market currently exists, or may ever exist, for shares of our common stock and our shares are, and may continue to be, illiquid.
If we and our Advisor are unable to find suitable investments, then we may not be able to achieve our investment objectives, or pay distributions with cash flows from operations.
We may be unable to maintain cash distributions or increase distributions over time.
We are obligated to pay fees which may be substantial to our Advisor and its affiliates.
We depend on tenants for our revenue and, accordingly, our revenue is dependent upon the success and economic viability of our tenants.
Increases in interest rates could increase the amount of our debt payments and limit our ability to pay distributions.
We are permitted to pay distributions from unlimited amounts of any source. Until substantially all of the proceeds from our IPO are invested, we may use proceeds from our IPO and financings to fund distributions until we have sufficient cash flows from operations. There are no established limits on the amount of net proceeds and borrowings that we may use to fund distribution payments, except in accordance with our organizational documents and Maryland law.
Any distributions may reduce the amount of capital we ultimately invest in properties and other permitted investments and negatively impact the value of your investment.
We have not generated and may not generate cash flows from operations sufficient to cover distributions paid to stockholders; as such, we may be forced to source distributions from borrowings, which may be at higher rates or depend on our Advisor or our property manager, New York City Properties, LLC (the "Property Manager") to waive fees or reimbursement of certain expenses and fees to fund our operations. There is no assurance that these entities will waive such amounts.
We are subject to risks associated with any dislocations or liquidity disruptions that may exist or occur in the credit markets of the United States from time to time.

22


We may fail to continue to qualify to be treated as a real estate investment trust for United States federal income tax purposes ("REIT"), which would result in higher taxes, may adversely affect our operations and would reduce the value of an investment in our common stock and cash available for distributions.
We may be deemed to be an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "Investment Company Act"), and thus subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act.
As of September 30, 2015, we owned only five properties and therefore have limited diversification.
Overview
We were incorporated on December 19, 2013 as a Maryland corporation and elected and qualified to be taxed as a REIT beginning with our taxable year ended December 31, 2014. On April 24, 2014, we commenced our IPO on a "reasonable best efforts" basis of up to 30.0 million shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, at a price of $25.00 per share, subject to certain volume and other discounts, for total gross proceeds of up to $750.0 million, pursuant to our registration statement on Form S-11, as amended (File No. 333-194135) (the "Registration Statement") filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The Registration Statement also covered up to 10.5 million shares available pursuant to a distribution reinvestment plan (the "DRIP") under which our common stockholders may elect to have their distributions reinvested in additional shares of our common stock at a price of $23.75 per share, which is equal to 95% of the offering price in the IPO.
On May 29, 2014, we received and accepted subscriptions in excess of the minimum offering amount for the IPO of $2.0 million in shares, broke general escrow and issued shares of common stock to initial investors who were admitted as stockholders. In February 2015, as permitted, we reallocated the remaining 10.0 million DRIP shares available under the Registration Statement to the primary offering. On May 22, 2015, we registered an additional 25.0 million shares to be issued pursuant to the DRIP pursuant to a registration statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-204433). We closed our IPO on May 31, 2015, and continued to accept subscriptions in process as of that date. As of September 30, 2015, we had 30.2 million shares of common stock outstanding, including unvested restricted shares and shares issued pursuant to the DRIP, and had received total gross proceeds from the IPO of $750.5 million, inclusive of $19.2 million from the DRIP. The per share purchase price in the IPO was up to $25.00 per share (including the maximum allowed to be charged for commissions and fees) and shares issued under the DRIP is equal to $23.75 per share, which is equal to 95% of the offering price in the primary offering. Beginning with the net asset value ("NAV") pricing date, the per share price for shares under the DRIP will vary quarterly and will be equal to the NAV per share, as determined by our Advisor. The NAV pricing date means the date we first publish an estimated per share NAV, which will be on or prior to October 26, 2016, which is 150 days following the second anniversary from the date we broke escrow in the IPO.
We were formed to invest our assets in properties in the five boroughs of New York City, with a focus on Manhattan. We may also purchase certain real estate assets that accompany office properties, including retail spaces and amenities, as well as hospitality assets, residential assets and other property types exclusively in New York City. All such properties may be acquired and owned by us alone or jointly with another party. As of September 30, 2015, we owned five properties consisting of 841,868 rentable square feet, which were 86.2% leased, with a weighted average remaining lease term of 8.3 years. Our five properties include one commercial property, one property consisting of three condominium units (one retail unit, a parking garage and one office unit), one parking garage and two institutional-quality office buildings.
Substantially all of our business is conducted through New York City Operating Partnership, L.P. (the “OP”), a Delaware limited partnership. We are the sole general partner and hold substantially all of the units of limited partner interests in the OP (“OP units”). The Advisor contributed $2,020 to the OP in exchange for 90 OP units, which represents a nominal percentage of the aggregate OP ownership. A holder of OP units has the right to convert OP units for the cash value of a corresponding number of shares of our common stock or, at the option of the OP, a corresponding number of shares of our common stock, in accordance with the limited partnership agreement of the OP, provided, however, that such OP units must have been outstanding for at least one year. The remaining rights of the limited partners in the OP are limited, however, and do not include the ability to replace the general partner or to approve the sale, purchase or refinancing of the OP's assets.
We have no direct employees. We have retained our Advisor to manage our affairs on a day-to-day basis. We have retained our Property Manager to serve as our property manager. The Dealer Manager served as the dealer manager of the IPO and continues to provide us with various services. The Advisor, Property Manager and Dealer Manager are under common control with ARC, the parent of our sponsor, as a result of which they are related parties, and each of which has received or will receive compensation, fees and expense reimbursements for services related to the IPO and the investment and management of our assets. The Advisor, New York City Special Limited Partner, LLC (the "Special Limited Partner"), Property Manager and Dealer Manager have also received or will also receive fees, distributions and other compensation during our offering, acquisition, operational and liquidation stages.

Significant Accounting Estimates and Critical Accounting Policies
Set forth below is a summary of the significant accounting estimates and critical accounting policies that management believes are important to the preparation of our financial statements. Certain of our accounting estimates are particularly important for an understanding of our financial position and results of operations and require the application of significant judgment by our management. As a result, these estimates are subject to a degree of uncertainty. These significant accounting estimates and critical accounting policies include:
Offering and Related Costs
Offering and related costs include all expenses incurred in connection with our IPO. Offering and related costs are recorded as a reduction to additional paid-in capital on the consolidated balance sheets. Offering costs (other than selling commissions and the dealer manager fees) include costs that may be paid by the Advisor, the Dealer Manager or their affiliates on our behalf. These costs include but are not limited to (i) legal, accounting, printing, mailing, and filing fees; (ii) escrow service related fees; (iii) reimbursement of the Dealer Manager for amounts it may pay to reimburse itemized and detailed due diligence expenses of broker-dealers; and (iv) reimbursement to the Advisor for a portion of the costs of its employees and other costs in connection with preparing supplemental sales materials and related offering activities. We are obligated to reimburse the Advisor or its affiliates, as applicable, for organization and offering costs paid by them on our behalf, provided that the Advisor is obligated to reimburse us to the extent organization and offering costs (excluding selling commissions and the dealer manager fee) incurred by us in our IPO exceed 2.0% of gross offering proceeds in the IPO. As a result, these costs are our liability to the extent aggregate selling commissions, the dealer manager fee and other organization and offering costs are less than 12.0% of the gross proceeds determined at the end of the IPO. All offering costs incurred by us, the Advisor and its affiliated entities on our behalf are charged to additional paid-in capital on the consolidated balance sheets.
Revenue Recognition
Our revenues, which are derived primarily from rental income, include rents that each tenant pays in accordance with the terms of each lease reported on a straight-line basis over the initial term of the lease. Since many of our leases provide for rental increases at specified intervals, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") require us to record a receivable, and include in revenues on a straight-line basis, unbilled rent receivables that we will only receive if the tenant makes all rent payments required through the expiration of the initial term of the lease. We defer the revenue related to lease payments received from tenants in advance of their due dates. When we acquire a property, the terms of existing leases are considered to commence as of the acquisition date for the purposes of this calculation.
Rental revenue recognition commences when the tenant takes possession of or controls the physical use of the leased space. For the tenant to take possession, the leased space must be substantially ready for its intended use. To determine whether the leased space is substantially ready for its intended use, we evaluate whether we own or if the tenant owns the tenant improvements. When we conclude that we are the owner of tenant improvements, rental revenue recognition begins when the tenant takes possession of the finished space, which is when such improvements are substantially complete. When we conclude that we are not the owner (as the tenant is the owner) of tenant improvements, rental revenue recognition begins when the tenant takes possession of or controls the space.
When we conclude that we are the owner of tenant improvements, we record the cost to construct the tenant improvements, including costs paid for or reimbursed by the tenants, as a capital asset. When we conclude that the tenant is the owner of tenant improvements for accounting purposes, we record our contribution towards those improvements as a lease incentive, which is included in deferred leasing costs, net on the consolidated balance sheets and amortized as a reduction to rental income on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease.
We will continually review receivables related to rent and unbilled rent receivables and determine collectability by taking into consideration the tenant's payment history, the financial condition of the tenant, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant operates and economic conditions in the area in which the property is located. In the event that the collectability of a receivable is in doubt, we will record an increase in our allowance for uncollectible accounts or record a direct write-off of the receivable in our consolidated statements of operations.
Cost recoveries from tenants are included in operating expense reimbursement in the period the related costs are incurred, as applicable.
We may own certain properties with leases that include provisions for the tenant to pay contingent rental income based on a percent of the tenant's sales upon the achievement of certain sales thresholds or other targets which may be monthly, quarterly or annual targets. As the lessor to the aforementioned leases, we defer the recognition of contingent rental income until the specified target that triggered the contingent rental income is achieved, or until such sales upon which percentage rent is based are known. If we own certain properties with leases that include provisions for the tenant to pay contingent rental income, contingent rental income will be included in rental income on the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss.

24


Investments in Real Estate
We evaluate the inputs, processes and outputs of each asset acquired to determine if the transaction is a business combination or asset acquisition. If an acquisition qualifies as a business combination, the related transaction costs are recorded as an expense in the consolidated statement of operations. If an acquisition qualifies as an asset acquisition, the related transaction costs are generally capitalized and subsequently amortized over the useful life of the acquired assets.
In business combinations, we allocate the purchase price of acquired properties to tangible and identifiable intangible assets or liabilities based on their respective fair values. Tangible assets may include land, land improvements, buildings and fixtures. Intangible assets or liabilities may include the value of in-place leases, above- and below-market leases and other identifiable intangible assets or liabilities based on lease or property specific characteristics.
The fair value of the tangible assets of an acquired property with an in-place operating lease is determined by valuing the property as if it were vacant, and the “as-if-vacant” value is then allocated to the tangible assets based on the fair value of the tangible assets. The fair value of in-place leases is determined by considering estimates of carrying costs during the expected lease-up periods, current market conditions, as well as costs to execute similar leases. The fair value of above-market or below-market leases is recorded based on the present value of the difference between the contractual amount to be paid pursuant to the in-place lease and our estimate of fair market lease rate for the corresponding in-place lease, measured over the remaining term of the lease. The fair value of other intangible assets, such as real estate tax abatements and signage rights, are recorded based on the present value of the expected benefit and amortized over the expected useful life including any below-market fixed rate renewal options for below-market leases.
In allocating the fair value to assumed mortgages, if applicable, amounts are recorded to debt premiums or discounts based on the present value of the estimated cash flows, which is calculated to account for either above- or below-market interest rates.
In allocating non-controlling interests, if applicable, amounts are recorded based on the fair value of units issued at the date of acquisition, as determined by the terms of the applicable agreement.
In making estimates of fair values for purposes of allocating purchase price, we utilize a number of sources, including real estate valuations prepared by independent valuation firms. We also consider information and other factors including: market conditions, the industry in which the tenant operates, characteristics of the real estate such as location, size, demographics, value and comparative rental rates, tenant credit profile and the importance of the location of the real estate to the operations of the tenant’s business.
We are required to present the operations related to properties that have been sold or properties that are intended to be sold as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss for all periods presented to the extent the disposal of a component represents a strategic shift that has had or will have a major effect on our operations and financial results. Properties that are intended to be sold will be designated as "held for sale" on the consolidated balance sheets at the lesser of carrying amount or fair value less estimated selling costs when they meet specific criteria to be presented as held for sale. Properties are no longer depreciated when they are classified as held for sale.
Depreciation and Amortization
We are required to make subjective assessments as to the useful lives of the components of our real estate investments for purposes of determining the amount of depreciation to record on an annual basis. These assessments have a direct impact on our net income because if we were to shorten the expected useful lives of our real estate investments, we would depreciate these investments over fewer years, resulting in more depreciation expense and lower net income on an annual basis.
Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of up to 40 years for buildings, 15 years for land improvements, five to seven years for fixtures and improvements, and the shorter of the useful life or the remaining lease term for tenant improvements and leasehold interests.
Capitalized above-market lease values are amortized as a reduction of rental income over the remaining terms of the respective leases. Capitalized below-market lease values are amortized as an increase to rental income over the remaining terms of the respective leases and expected below-market renewal option periods.
The value of in-place leases, exclusive of the value of above-market and below-market in-place leases, is amortized to expense over the remaining periods of the respective leases.
Assumed mortgage premiums or discounts, if applicable, are amortized as an increase or reduction to interest expense over the remaining term of the respective mortgages.

25


Impairment of Long Lived Assets
When circumstances indicate the carrying value of a property may not be recoverable, we review the asset for impairment. This review is based on an estimate of the future undiscounted cash flows, excluding interest charges, expected to result from the property’s use and eventual disposition. These estimates consider factors such as expected future operating income, market and other applicable trends and residual value, as well as the effects of leasing demand, competition and other factors. If impairment exists due to the inability to recover the carrying value of a property, an impairment loss is recorded to the extent that the carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value of the property for properties to be held and used. For properties held for sale, the impairment loss is the adjustment to fair value less estimated cost to dispose of the asset. These assessments have a direct impact on net income because recording an impairment loss results in an immediate negative adjustment to net income.

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued revised guidance relating to revenue recognition. Under the revised guidance, an entity is required to recognize revenue when it transfers promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The revised guidance allows entities to apply either a full retrospective or modified retrospective transition method upon adoption. In July 2015, the FASB deferred the effective date of the revised guidance by one year to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, although entities will be allowed to early adopt the guidance as of the original effective date. We have not yet selected a transition method and are currently evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In January 2015, the FASB issued updated guidance that eliminates extraordinary item classification from GAAP, which was the concept of an event or transaction that is unusual in nature and occurs infrequently being treated as an extraordinary item. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Any amendments may be applied either prospectively or retrospectively to all prior periods presented in the financial statements. Early adoption is permitted provided that the guidance is applied from the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. We have opted to adopt this revised guidance early and have determined that there has been no impact to our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.
In February 2015, the FASB amended the accounting for consolidation of certain legal entities. The amendments modify the evaluation of whether certain legal entities are variable interest entities ("VIEs") or voting interest entities, eliminate the presumption that a general partner should consolidate a limited partnership and affect the consolidation analysis of reporting entities that are involved with VIEs (particularly those that have fee arrangements and related party relationships). The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted for financial statements that have not previously been issued. We currently have no VIEs and are evaluating the impact of the new guidance.
In April 2015, the FASB amended the presentation of debt issuance costs on the balance sheet. The amendment requires that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented on the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability. In August 2015, the FASB added that, for line of credit arrangements, the SEC staff would not object to an entity deferring and presenting debt issuance costs as an asset and subsequently amortizing the deferred debt issuance costs ratably over the term of the line, regardless of whether or not there are any outstanding borrowings. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted for financial statements that have not previously been issued. The revised guidance is not expected to have a significant impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In September 2015, the FASB issued an update that eliminates the requirement to adjust provisional amounts from a business combination and the related impact on earnings by restating prior period financial statements for measurement period adjustments. The new guidance requires that the cumulative impact of measurement period adjustments on current and prior periods, including the prior period impact on depreciation, amortization and other income statement items and their related tax effects, shall be recognized in the period the adjustment amount is determined. The cumulative adjustment would be reflected within the respective financial statement line items affected. The revised guidance is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. We have elected to adopt the new guidance as of September 30, 2015. The adoption of this guidance had no impact on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

Results of Operations
We were incorporated on December 19, 2013. We purchased our first property and commenced our real estate operations in June 2014. As of July 1, 2014, we owned one property. From July 1, 2014 through September 2015, we acquired four properties (our "Acquisitions") and therefore owned five properties as of September 30, 2015. Accordingly, due to our Acquisitions, our results of operations for three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 as compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 reflect significant increases in most categories.
Comparison of Three Months Ended September 30, 2015 to Three Months Ended September 30, 2014
Rental Income
Rental income increased $6.8 million to $7.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, primarily due to our Acquisitions.
Operating Expense Reimbursements
Operating expense reimbursements were $0.6 million and approximately $24,000, respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014. The increase in operating expense reimbursements was due to our Acquisitions.
Pursuant to many of our lease agreements, tenants are required to pay their pro rata share of certain property operating expenses, in addition to base rent, whereas under certain other lease agreements, the tenants are directly responsible for most operating costs of the respective properties. Therefore, operating expense reimbursements are directly affected by changes in property operating expenses, although not all increases in property operating expenses may be reimbursed by our tenants.
Property Operating Expenses
Property operating expenses increased $3.4 million to $3.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, primarily due to our Acquisitions. Property operating expenses related to the costs of maintaining our five properties including real estate taxes, condominium fees, utilities, maintenance, repairs and property insurance.
Operating fees incurred from the Property Manager
We incurred $0.1 million in fees for property management services from our Property Manager for the three months ended September 30, 2015. Property management fees increase in direct correlation with gross revenue. The Property Manager elected to waive all property management fees for the three months ended September 30, 2014. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, we would have incurred property management fees of approximately $19,000 had these fees not been waived.
Acquisition and Transaction Related Expenses
We incurred no acquisition and transaction related expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2015. For the three months ended September 30, 2014, acquisition and transaction related expenses were $2.0 million which related to the acquisitions of two condominium units, which included an office unit and a parking garage, purchased in September 2015.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses increased $0.4 million to $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 from $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, primarily due to increased professional fees, insurance and board member compensation to support our larger real estate portfolio.

27


Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization expenses increased $4.3 million to $4.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $0.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014, primarily related to our Acquisitions.
Interest Expense
Interest expense of $1.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 related to our mortgage note payable, the proceeds of which funded a portion of the acquisition of 123 William Street in March 2015. As of September 30, 2015, the loan had a balance of $96.0 million and an effective interest rate of 2.48%. We did not have any debt and therefore incurred no interest expense during the three months ended September 30, 2014.
Income from Investment Securities and Interest
Income from investment securities and interest of $0.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 primarily related to dividends earned on our investment in a mutual fund as well as interest earned on cash deposits. We did not earn any interest or dividend income for the three months ended September 30, 2014.
Comparison of Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015 to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014
Rental Income
Rental income increased $16.3 million to $16.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily related to our Acquisitions.
Operating Expense Reimbursements
Operating expense reimbursements were $1.2 million and approximately $24,000, respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, primarily related to our Acquisitions.
Pursuant to many of our lease agreements, tenants are required to pay their pro rata share of certain property operating expenses, in addition to base rent, whereas under certain other lease agreements, the tenants are directly responsible for most operating costs of the respective properties. Therefore, operating expense reimbursements are directly affected by changes in property operating expenses, although not all increases in property operating expenses may be reimbursed by our tenants.
Property Operating Expenses
Property operating expenses increased $7.5 million to $7.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 from $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily related to our Acquisitions. The property operating expenses related to the costs of maintaining our five properties including real estate taxes, condominium fees, utilities, maintenance, repairs and property insurance.
Operating fees incurred from the Property Manager
We incurred $0.1 million in fees for property management services from our Property Manager for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. Property management fees increase in direct correlation with gross revenues. The Property Manager elected to waive a portion of property management fees for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and all property management fees for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we would have incurred additional property management fees of $0.2 million and approximately $20,000, respectively, had these fees not been waived.
Acquisition and Transaction Related Expenses
Acquisition and transaction related expenses of $6.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 primarily related to our acquisition of 123 William Street in March 2015. Acquisition and transaction related expenses of $2.2 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 related to our acquisitions of two condominium units, which included an office unit and a parking garage, purchased during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.
General and Administrative Expenses
General and administrative expenses increased $2.0 million to $2.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, from $0.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily due to increased audit fees, professional fees, insurance and board member compensation to support our larger real estate portfolio.
Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization expense increased $11.1 million to $11.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $0.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, primarily related to our Acquisitions.

28


Interest Expense
Interest expense of $2.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 related to our mortgage note payable, the proceeds of which funded a portion of the acquisition of 123 William Street in March 2015. As of September 30, 2015, the loan had a balance of $96.0 million and an effective interest rate of 2.48%. We did not have any debt and therefore incurred no interest expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.
Income from Investment Securities and Interest
Income from investment securities and interest of $0.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 related to dividends earned on our investment in an equity security as well as interest earned on cash deposits. We did not earn any interest income during the nine months ended September 30, 2014.
Cash Flows for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015
During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, net cash used in operating activities was $8.2 million. The level of cash flows used in or provided by operating activities is affected by recent acquisition activity, the timing of interest payments and the amount of borrowings outstanding during the period, as well as the receipt of scheduled rent payments. Cash flows used in operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 included $6.0 million of acquisition and transaction costs. Cash flows used in operating activities included a net loss adjusted for non-cash items of $0.5 million (net loss of $11.7 million adjusted for non-cash items consisting of depreciation and amortization of tangible and intangible real estate assets, share based compensation, and deferred financing costs of $11.3 million) and an increase in prepaid expenses, other assets and deferred costs of $10.3 million related to tenant and other accounts receivable, unbilled rent receivables recorded in accordance with accounting for rental income on a straight-line basis and leasing costs. These cash outflows were partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1.9 million, primarily related to accrued property operating costs and professional fees and an increase in deferred rent and other liabilities of $0.6 million.
The net cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $162.9 million, primarily related to our acquisition of one property for $157.0 million, with an aggregate purchase price of $253.0 million, partially funded with a mortgage note payable of $96.0 million, as well as capital expenditures of $7.9 million relating to building and tenant improvements at 9 Times Square and 123 William Street. These cash outflows were partially offset by funds released from escrow of $2.1 million related to a prior period acquisition.
Net cash provided by financing activities of $179.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 consisted of proceeds from the issuance of common stock of $230.6 million, partially offset by payments of offering costs of $30.4 million, distributions to stockholders of $14.3 million, payments of financing costs of $4.6 million relating to our mortgage note and payments for repurchases of common stock of $1.6 million.
Cash Flows for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014
During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, net cash used in operating activities was $1.4 million. The level of cash flows used in or provided by operating activities is affected by the volume of acquisition activity and the receipt of scheduled rent payments. Cash flows used in operating activities includes $2.2 million of acquisition and transaction related costs. Cash outflows included a net loss adjusted for non-cash items of $2.0 million (net loss of $2.5 million adjusted for non-cash items including depreciation and amortization of tangible and identifiable intangible real estate assets and share based compensation of approximately $0.5 million) and an increase in prepaid expenses and other assets of $0.2 million related to insurance and real estate taxes and other unpaid receivables. These cash outflows were partially offset by an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $0.6 million and an increase in deferred revenue of $0.2 million.
Net cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 of $92.6 million related to the acquisition of three properties with a purchase price of $92.3 million and purchases of investment securities of $0.5 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 net cash used in investing activities was offset by an assumed liability related to a tenant security deposit of $0.2 million.
Net cash provided by financing activities of approximately $301.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2014 consisted of proceeds, net of receivables, from the issuance of common stock of $337.4 million, partially offset by payments related to offering costs of $35.0 million and distributions to stockholders of $0.7 million.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2015, we had cash of $192.9 million. Our principal demands for cash will be for acquisition costs, including the purchase price of any properties, loans and securities we acquire, improvement costs, the payment of our operating and administrative expenses, continuing debt service obligations, distributions to our stockholders and repurchases under our Share Repurchase Program ("SRP"). Generally, we will fund our acquisitions from the net proceeds of our offering. We intend to acquire our assets with cash and mortgage or other debt, but we also may acquire assets free and clear of mortgage or other indebtedness by paying the entire purchase price for the asset in cash or in OP units.

29


We expect to fund our future short-term operating liquidity requirements through a combination of net cash provided by our current property operations and the operations of properties to be acquired in the future, the remaining proceeds from the sale of common stock and proceeds from secured mortgage financings. Management expects that in the future, as our portfolio matures, cash flow from our properties will be sufficient to fund operating expenses and the payment of our monthly distributions. Other potential future sources of capital include proceeds from secured and unsecured financings from banks or other lenders, proceeds from public and private offerings, proceeds from the sale of properties and undistributed funds from operations.
We expect to use debt financing as a source of capital. Under our charter, the maximum amount of our total indebtedness may not exceed 300% of our total "net assets" (as defined in our charter) as of the date of any borrowing, which is equal to 75% of the cost of our investments. We may exceed that limit if approved by a majority of our independent directors and disclosed to stockholders in our next quarterly report following such borrowing along with justification for exceeding such limit. This charter limitation, however, does not apply to individual real estate assets or investments. In addition, it is currently our intention to limit our aggregate borrowings to 40% to 50% of the aggregate fair market value of our assets unless borrowing a greater amount is approved by a majority of our independent directors and disclosed to stockholders in our next quarterly report following such borrowing along with justification for borrowing such a greater amount. This limitation will be calculated after the close of our IPO and once we have invested substantially all the proceeds of our IPO and will not apply to individual real estate assets or investments. At the date of acquisition of each asset, we anticipate that the cost of investment for such asset will be substantially similar to its fair market value, which will enable us to satisfy our requirements under our charter. However, subsequent events, including changes in the fair market value of our assets, could result in our exceeding these limits.
Once we begin calculating NAV and our NAV exceeds $1.0 billion, we intend to maintain 5% of our NAV in liquid assets that can be liquidated more readily than properties. However, our stockholders should not expect that we will maintain liquid assets at or above this level. To the extent that we maintain borrowing capacity under a line of credit, such available amount will be included in calculating our liquid assets. Our Advisor will consider various factors in determining the amount of liquid assets we should maintain, including, but not limited to, our receipt of proceeds from sales of additional shares, our cash flow from operations, available borrowing capacity under a line of credit, if any, our receipt of proceeds from any asset sale, and the use of cash to fund repurchases. The board of directors will review the amount and sources of liquid assets on a quarterly basis.
Our board of directors has adopted the SRP, which enables our stockholders to sell their shares to us under limited circumstances. At the time a stockholder requests a repurchase, we may, subject to certain conditions, repurchase the shares presented for repurchase for cash to the extent we have sufficient funds available to fund such purchase. Repurchases of shares of our common stock, when requested, are at our sole discretion and generally will be made quarterly. There are limits on the number of shares we may repurchase under this program during any 12-month period. Further, we are only authorized to repurchase shares using proceeds secured from our DRIP in any given quarter.

Acquisitions
Our Advisor evaluates potential acquisitions of real estate and real estate-related assets and engages in negotiations with sellers and borrowers on our behalf. Investors should be aware that after a purchase contract is executed that contains specific terms, the property will not be purchased until the successful completion of due diligence and fully negotiated binding agreements. During this period, we may decide to temporarily invest any unused proceeds from common stock offerings in certain investments that could yield lower returns than the properties. These lower returns may affect our ability to make distributions.

Funds from Operations and Modified Funds from Operations
The historical accounting convention used for real estate assets requires straight-line depreciation of buildings, improvements, and straight-line amortization of intangibles, which implies that the value of a real estate asset diminishes predictably over time. We believe that, because real estate values historically rise and fall with market conditions, including, but not limited to, inflation, interest rates, the business cycle, unemployment and consumer spending, presentations of operating results for a REIT using the historical accounting convention for depreciation and certain other items may be less informative.
Because of these factors, the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”), an industry trade group, has published a standardized measure of performance known as funds from operations (“FFO”), which is used in the REIT industry as a supplemental performance measure. We believe FFO, which excludes certain items such as real estate-related depreciation and amortization, is an appropriate supplemental measure of a REIT’s operating performance. FFO is not equivalent to our net income or loss as determined under GAAP.
We define FFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the standards set forth in the White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of NAREIT, as revised in February 2004 (the “White Paper”). The White Paper defines FFO as net income or loss computed in accordance with GAAP, but excluding gains or losses from sales of property and real estate related impairments, plus real estate related depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
We believe that the use of FFO provides a more complete understanding of our performance to investors and to management, and, when compared year over year, reflects the impact on our operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, general and administrative expenses, and interest costs, which may not be immediately apparent from net income.
Changes in the accounting and reporting promulgations under GAAP that were put into effect in 2009 subsequent to the establishment of NAREIT’s definition of FFO, such as the change to expense as incurred rather than capitalize and depreciate acquisition fees and expenses incurred for business combinations, have prompted an increase in cash-settled expenses, specifically acquisition fees and expenses, as items that are expensed under GAAP across all industries. These changes had a particularly significant impact on publicly registered, non-listed REITs, which typically have a significant amount of acquisition activity in the early part of their existence, particularly during the period when they are raising capital through ongoing initial public offerings.
Because of these factors, the Investment Program Association (the “IPA”), an industry trade group, has published a standardized measure of performance known as modified funds from operations (“MFFO”), which the IPA has recommended as a supplemental measure for publicly registered, non-listed REITs. MFFO is designed to be reflective of the ongoing operating performance of publicly registered, non-listed REITs by adjusting for those costs that are more reflective of acquisitions and investment activity, along with other items the IPA believes are not indicative of the ongoing operating performance of a publicly registered, non-listed REIT, such as straight-lining of rents as required by GAAP. We believe it is appropriate to use MFFO as a supplemental measure of operating performance because we believe that, when compared year over year, both before and after we have deployed all of our offering proceeds and are no longer incurring a significant amount acquisitions fees or other related costs, it reflects the impact on our operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, general and administrative expenses, and interest costs, which may not be immediately apparent from net income. MFFO is not equivalent to our net income or loss as determined under GAAP.
We define MFFO, a non-GAAP measure, consistent with the IPA’s Guideline 2010-01, Supplemental Performance Measure for Publicly Registered, Non-Listed REITs: Modified Funds from Operations (the “Practice Guideline”) issued by the IPA in November 2010. The Practice Guideline defines MFFO as FFO further adjusted for acquisition and transaction related fees and expenses and other items. In calculating MFFO, we follow the Practice Guideline and exclude acquisition and transaction-related fees and expenses, amounts relating to deferred rent receivables and amortization of above and below market leases and liabilities (which are adjusted in order to reflect such payments from a GAAP accrual basis to a cash basis of disclosing the rent and lease payments), accretion of discounts and amortization of premiums on debt investments, mark-to-market adjustments included in net income, gains or losses included in net income from the extinguishment or sale of debt, hedges, foreign exchange, derivatives or securities holdings where trading of such holdings is not a fundamental attribute of the business plan, unrealized gains or losses resulting from consolidation from, or deconsolidation to, equity accounting, and after adjustments for consolidated and unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures, with such adjustments calculated to reflect MFFO on the same basis.
We believe that, because MFFO excludes costs that we consider more reflective of acquisition activities and other non-operating items, MFFO can provide, on a going-forward basis, an indication of the sustainability (that is, the capacity to continue to be maintained) of our operating performance after the period in which we are acquiring properties and once our portfolio is stabilized. We also believe that MFFO is a recognized measure of sustainable operating performance by the non-listed REIT industry and allows for an evaluation of our performance against other publicly registered, non-listed REITs.

31


Not all REITs, including publicly registered, non-listed REITs, calculate FFO and MFFO the same way. Accordingly, comparisons with other REITs, including publicly registered, non-listed REITs, may not be meaningful. Furthermore, FFO and MFFO are not indicative of cash flow available to fund cash needs and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or income (loss) from continuing operations as determined under GAAP as an indication of our performance, as an alternative to cash flows from operations, as an indication of our liquidity, or indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs including our ability to make distributions to our stockholders. FFO and MFFO should be reviewed in conjunction with other GAAP measurements as an indication of our performance. FFO and MFFO should not be construed to be more relevant or accurate than the current GAAP methodology in calculating net income or in its applicability in evaluating our operating performance. The methods utilized to evaluate the performance of a publicly registered, non-listed REIT under GAAP should be construed as more relevant measures of operational performance and considered more prominently than the non-GAAP measures, FFO and MFFO, and the adjustments to GAAP in calculating FFO and MFFO.
Neither the SEC, NAREIT, the IPA nor any other regulatory body or industry trade group has passed judgment on the acceptability of the adjustments that we use to calculate FFO or MFFO. In the future, NAREIT, the IPA or another industry trade group may publish updates to the White Paper or the Practice Guideline or the SEC or another regulatory body could standardize the allowable adjustments across the publicly registered, non-listed REIT industry and we would have to adjust our calculation and characterization of FFO or MFFO accordingly.
The table below reflects the items deducted or added to net loss in our calculation of FFO and MFFO for the periods presented.

Distributions
On May 22, 2014, our board of directors authorized, and we declared, a distribution payable to stockholders of record each day during the applicable period equal to $0.0041438356 per day, which is equivalent to $1.5125 per annum, per share of common stock. The distributions began to accrue to record holders on June 13, 2014, which date represents the closing of our initial property acquisition, and were first paid in July 2014. Distributions to record holders are payable by the 5th day following each month end to stockholders of record at the close of business each day during the prior month.
The amount of distributions payable to our stockholders is determined by our board of directors and is dependent on a number of factors, including funds available for distribution, our financial condition, capital expenditure requirements, as applicable, requirements of Maryland law and annual distribution requirements needed to maintain our status as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). Distribution payments are dependent on the availability of funds. Our board of directors may reduce the amount of distributions paid or suspend distribution payments at any time and therefore distribution payments are not assured.
During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, distributions paid to common stockholders totaled $28.9 million. Of that amount, $14.7 million was reinvested in shares of our common stock pursuant to the DRIP. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, cash used to pay our distributions was generated from proceeds from the IPO and proceeds from the sale of our shares through the DRIP.

Election as a REIT 
We elected and qualified to be taxed as a REIT under Sections 856 through 860 of the Code, beginning with our taxable year ended December 31, 2014. We believe that, commencing with such taxable year, we are organized and operate in such a manner as to qualify for taxation as a REIT under the Code. We intend to continue to operate in such a manner to qualify for taxation as a REIT, but no assurance can be given that we will operate in a manner so as to remain qualified for taxation as a REIT. In order to qualify for taxation as a REIT we must, among other things, distribute annually at least 90% of our REIT taxable income (which does not equal net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP) determined without regard for the deduction for dividends paid and excluding net capital gains, and must comply with a number of other organizational and operational requirements. If we continue to qualify for taxation as a REIT, we generally will not be subject to federal corporate income tax on that portion of our REIT taxable income that we distribute to our stockholders. Even if we qualify for taxation as a REIT, we may be subject to certain state and local taxes on our income and properties as well as federal income and excise taxes on our undistributed income.
Inflation
We may be adversely impacted by inflation on any leases that do not contain indexed escalation provisions. In addition, we may be required to pay costs for maintenance and operation of properties which may adversely impact our results of operations due to potential increases in costs and operating expenses resulting from inflation.
Related-Party Transactions and Agreements
We have entered into agreements with related parties of our Sponsor, whereby we have paid or may in the future pay certain fees or reimbursements to our Advisor, its affiliates and entities under common control with our Advisor in connection with acquisition and financing activities, sales and maintenance of common stock under our offering, transfer agency services, asset and property management services and reimbursement of operating and offering related costs.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have had or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
The market risk associated with financial instruments and derivative financial instruments is the risk of loss from adverse changes in market prices or rates. Our long term debt, which consists of secured financing, bears interest at a variable rate. Our interest rate risk management objectives with respect to our debt will be to limit the impact of interest rate changes on earnings and cash flows and to lower our overall borrowing costs. To achieve these objectives, from time to time, we may enter into interest rate hedge contracts such as swaps and collars in order to mitigate our interest rate risk with respect to various debt instruments. We will not hold or issue these derivative contracts for trading or speculative purposes. We do not anticipate having any material foreign operations and we do not expect to be exposed to material foreign currency fluctuations.
As of September 30, 2015, our debt consisted of variable-rate debt. We had a variable rate secured mortgage note payable with an aggregate carrying value and fair value of $96.0 million. Interest rate volatility associated with this variable-rate mortgage note payable affects interest expense incurred and cash flow. The sensitivity analysis related to our variable-rate debt assumes an immediate 100 basis point move in interest rates from their September 30, 2015 levels, with all other variables held constant. A 100 basis point increase or decrease in variable interest rates on our variable-rate credit facility would increase or decrease our interest expense by $1.0 million annually.

34


These amounts were determined by considering the impact of hypothetical interest rate changes on our borrowing costs, and assuming no other changes in our capital structure. The information presented above includes only those exposures that existed as of September 30, 2015 and does not consider exposures or positions arising after that date. The information represented herein has limited predictive value. Future actual realized gains or losses with respect to interest rate fluctuations will depend on cumulative exposures, hedging strategies employed and the magnitude of the fluctuations.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
In accordance with Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), we, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and determined that the disclosure controls and procedures are effective.
No change occurred in our internal controls over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act) during the three months ended September 30, 2015 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II — OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we are not a party to any material pending legal proceedings.
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
Our potential risks and uncertainties are presented in the section entitled "Item 1A. Risk Factors," disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014. The following additional risk factors should be considered regarding our potential risks and uncertainties:
Distributions paid from sources other than our cash flows from operations, particularly from proceeds of our IPO, will result in us having fewer funds available for the acquisition of properties and other real estate-related investments and may dilute our stockholders’ interests in us, which may adversely affect our ability to fund future distributions with cash flows from operations and may adversely affect our stockholders’ overall return.
Our cash flows used in operations were $8.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, we paid distributions of $28.9 million, of which $13.1 million, or 45.1%, was funded from proceeds from the sale of shares through the DRIP and $15.9 million, or 54.9%, was funded from proceeds from our IPO. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, cash flow from operations included an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $1.9 million, as reflected on the statement of cash flows. Accordingly, if these accounts payable and accrued expenses had been paid during the nine months ended September 30, 2015, there would have been $1.9 million less in cash flow from operations available to pay distributions. Using offering proceeds to pay distributions, especially if the distributions are not reinvested through our DRIP, reduces cash available for investment in assets or other purposes, and reduces our per share stockholders' equity. We may continue to use net offering proceeds to fund distributions.
Until we are generating operating cash flow from properties or other real estate-related investments sufficient to pay distributions to our stockholders, we intend to pay all or a substantial portion of our distributions from the proceeds of our IPO or from borrowings, including possible borrowings from our Advisor or its affiliates, the sale of additional securities, advances from our Advisor, and our Advisor’s deferral, suspension or waiver of its fees and expense reimbursements. We may pay distributions that exceed our cash flows from operations as well as our FFO, a non-GAAP measure that we use as a performance measure. Distributions in excess of FFO may indicate that the level of distributions may not be sustainable going forward. Distributions funded from offering proceeds are a return of capital to stockholders, from which we will have already paid offering expenses in connection with our IPO. Moreover, our board of directors may change our distribution policy, in its sole discretion, at any time. We have not established any limit on the amount of proceeds from our IPO that may be used to fund distributions, except that, in accordance with our organizational documents and Maryland law, we may not make distributions that would: (1) cause us to be unable to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business; (2) cause our total assets to be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus senior liquidation preferences, if any; or (3) jeopardize our ability to qualify as a REIT.
Funding distributions from the proceeds of our IPO reduces the funds available for acquiring properties or other real estate-related investments. As a result, the return our stockholders realize on their investments may be reduced. Funding distributions from borrowings could restrict the amount we can borrow for investments, which may affect our profitability and also reduce the amount that we may invest. Funding distributions with the net proceeds from the sale of assets or the proceeds of our IPO may affect our ability to generate cash flows from operations. Funding distributions from the sale of additional securities could dilute our stockholders' interest in us if we sell shares of our common stock or securities convertible or exercisable into shares of our common stock to third-party investors. Using offering proceeds to pay distributions, especially if the distributions are not reinvested through our DRIP, reduces cash available for investment in assets or other purposes. Payment of distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations could also affect our profitability or affect the distributions payable to our stockholders upon a liquidity event, any or all of which may have an adverse effect on the value of our stockholders' investment.

36


We rely significantly on five major tenants (including, for this purpose, all related parties of such tenants) and therefore are subject to tenant credit concentration that make us more susceptible to adverse events with respect to such tenants.
As of September 30, 2015, the following major tenants represented 5% or more of our consolidated annualized rental income on a straight-line basis including, for this purpose, all related parties of each tenant:
Property
 
Tenant
 
Percentage of Straight-Line Rent
123 William Street
 
Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.
 
11.2%
123 William Street
 
The People of the State of New York

Cornell University
 
8.3%
123 William Street
 
The City of New York
 
8.0%
123 William Street
 
United States of America
 
6.5%
Therefore, the financial failure of these tenants could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations and our financial condition. In addition, the value of our investment is driven by the credit quality of the underlying tenants, and an adverse change in the tenants' financial condition or a decline in the credit rating of such tenants may result in a decline in the value of our investment.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds of Registered Securities.
Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities
On July 13, 2015, we granted 2,666 shares of restricted stock that vest over a period of five years to our independent directors, pursuant to our employee and director incentive restricted share plan. No selling commissions or other consideration were paid in connection with such issuances, which were made without registration under the Securities Act in reliance upon exemption from the registration in Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act as transactions not involving any public offering.
Use of Proceeds from Sales of Registered Securities
On April 24, 2014, we commenced our IPO on a "reasonable best efforts" basis of up to 30.0 million shares of common stock, $0.01 par value per share, at a price of $25.00 per share, subject to certain volume and other discounts, pursuant to the Registration Statement filed with the SEC under the Securities Act (File No. 333-194135), which became effective on April 24, 2014. The Registration Statement also covered 10.5 million shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the DRIP under which common stockholders may elect to have their distributions reinvested in additional shares of common stock. On May 29, 2014, we received and accepted subscriptions in excess of the minimum offering amount for the IPO of $2.0 million in shares, broke general escrow and issued shares of common stock to initial investors who were admitted as stockholders. On May 31, 2015, we closed our IPO after having sold substantially all of the shares registered in our IPO, and continued to accept subscriptions in process as of that date. As of September 30, 2015, we have issued 30.2 million shares of our common stock, including unvested restricted shares and shares issued pursuant to our DRIP, and received $750.5 million of offering proceeds, inclusive of proceeds from our DRIP.

As of September 30, 2015, we have incurred $84.1 million of cumulative offering costs in connection with the issuance and distribution of our registered securities. Cumulative offering proceeds from the sale of common stock exceeded cumulative offering costs by $666.4 million at September 30, 2015.
As of September 30, 2015, cumulative offering costs included $69.4 million of selling commissions and dealer manager fees and $11.9 million of offering costs reimbursements incurred from the Advisor and Dealer Manager. We are obligated to reimburse the Advisor or its affiliates, as applicable, for organization and offering costs paid by them on our behalf, provided that the Advisor is obligated to reimburse us to the extent organization and offering costs (excluding selling commissions and the dealer manager fee) incurred by us in our IPO exceed 2.0% of gross offering proceeds in the IPO. As a result, these costs were only our liability to the extent aggregate selling commissions, the dealer manager fee and other organization and offering costs did not exceed 12.0% of the gross proceeds determined at the end of the IPO. As of the end of the IPO, aggregate selling commissions, dealer manager fees and other offering costs did not exceed 12.0% of the gross proceeds received in the IPO.
We have used and expect to continue to use substantially all of the net proceeds from our IPO to primarily acquire office and retail properties in the five boroughs of New York City, with a focus on Manhattan. We may also originate or acquire first mortgage loans secured by real estate. As of September 30, 2015, we have used the net proceeds from our IPO to purchase five properties with an aggregate purchase price of $507.5 million.
Item 3. Defaults Upon Senior Securities.
None.
Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures.
Not applicable.
Item 5. Other Information.
On November 9, 2015, ARC advised us that ARC and Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, “Apollo”) have mutually agreed to terminate an agreement, dated as of August 6, 2015, pursuant to which Apollo would have purchased a controlling interest in a newly formed company that would have owned a majority of the ongoing asset management business of ARC, including the Advisor and the Property Manager. The termination has no effect on our current management team.
On November 12, 2015, the Enforcement Section of the Massachusetts Securities Division filed an administrative complaint against the Dealer Manager. Neither we nor the Advisor are a named party in the administrative complaint. The Dealer Manager served as the dealer manager of our IPO, which was completed in May 2015, and, together with its affiliates, has continued to provide certain services to us and our Advisor. The administrative complaint alleges fraudulent behavior in connection with proxy services provided by the Dealer Manager to another program sponsored by ARC. The Dealer Manager has previously solicited proxies on our behalf, although the Advisor has determined at this time that the Dealer Manager will no longer provide such services to us. The administrative complaint alleges employees of the Dealer Manager fabricated numerous shareholder proxy votes across multiple entities sponsored by ARC but does not specifically refer to any actions taken in connection with any of our proxy solicitations.
