EBITDA represents “Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization.” Management considers EBITDA a supplemental measure for making decisions and assessing the unlevered performance of its segments as it relates to the total return on assets as opposed to the levered return on equity. EBITDA should not be considered a substitute for net income. EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.

|(Amounts in thousands)||For the Quarter Ended|
|January 28, 2012||January 29, 2011|
|Reconciliation of Vornado's net income from its investment in Toys to FFO (1):|
|Depreciation and amortization of real property||17,288||17,729|
|Real estate impairment losses||7,026||-|
|Income tax effect of above adjustments||(8,497||)||(6,205||)|
|Vornado's share of Toys’ FFO (1)||$||132,288||$||124,468|
FFO is computed in accordance with the definition adopted by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”). NAREIT defines FFO as GAAP net income or loss adjusted to exclude net gains from sales of depreciated real estate assets, real estate impairment losses, depreciation and amortization expense from real estate assets, extraordinary items and other specified non-cash items, including the pro rata share of such adjustments of unconsolidated subsidiaries. FFO and FFO per diluted share are used by management, investors and analysts to facilitate meaningful comparisons of operating performance between periods and among our peers because it excludes the effect of real estate depreciation and amortization and net gains on sales, which are based on historical costs and implicitly assume that the value of real estate diminishes predictably over time, rather than fluctuating based on existing market conditions. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities and is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund cash requirements and should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a performance measure or cash flows as a liquidity measure. FFO may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
