American Strategic Investment Co. to Accelerate Evolution of Business Model

– Expects to Accelerate Efforts to Diversify Through the Divestiture of Properties –

– Company Secures Loan Extension –

American Strategic Investment Co. (NYSE: NYC) (“ASIC” or the “Company”) announced today that it intends to accelerate its efforts to evolve and diversify its business. The Company has started the process to market for sale its 9 Times Square Midtown Manhattan asset (“9 Times Square”). In addition, the Company intends to market for sale its properties located at 123 William Street and 196 Orchard Street. These strategic dispositions are in furtherance of the Company’s previously announced repositioning of the Company’s investment portfolio and expanded business plan to invest in assets beyond Manhattan real estate.

The Company has also secured an amendment of the loan on 9 Times Square, which extends the maturity date to October 2024, with the option of an additional extension to year-end 2024 subject to certain conditions, to facilitate the proposed sale of the property.

“As part of our revenue diversification efforts, we believe it is an opportune time to explore opportunities to monetize certain of our portfolio of commercial real estate properties located primarily in Manhattan. We have commenced the 9 Times Square sales process and intend to market additional assets for sale in furtherance of this plan,” said Michael Anderson, Chief Executive Officer of American Strategic Investment Co. “If completed, we expect these strategic dispositions will meaningfully reduce leverage on our balance sheet and generate significant cash proceeds, which we intend to use to pursue the expanded asset acquisition and diversification strategy into higher yielding assets that was announced last year.”
