NEW YORK & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comrit Investments 1, LP (together with its affiliates, “Comrit” or “we”), a long-term stockholder of New York City REIT, Inc. (NYSE: NYC) (“NYC REIT” or the “Company”), today issued a comprehensive presentation that details the urgent case for change in NYC REIT's boardroom and summarizes the qualifications of its highly skilled and experienced nominee, Sharon Stern. As a reminder, Comrit is calling on stockholders to vote on the WHITE proxy card to elect Ms. Stern at the Company's 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the "Annual Meeting").

Ziv Sapir, Comrit's Managing Partner, commented:
"Following its public listing in August 2020, NYC REIT has continued to significantly underperform while the Board has initiated stockholder-unfriendly maneuvers, including the adoption of a defensive poison pill, serious conflicts of interest and the approval of an egregious advisory agreement that provides for excessive compensation and prioritizes management and the Company's advisor's interests over those of stockholders. In our view, leadership's repeated failure to create value for stockholders stems from a lack of independence, financial acumen and governance expertise across the current Board and management team. We believe stockholders deserve a highly qualified, independent director who is unhindered by legacy biases and conflicts of interest and who is laser-focused on unlocking value for stockholders.
At this year's Annual Meeting, stockholders have an opportunity to add a public company governance expert to the Board who can help objectively evaluate the Company's performance, governance and go-forward strategy. If elected, Sharon Stern will bring fresh perspectives and much-needed skills to help the Board improve NYC REIT's abysmal governance and create long-term value. We urge stockholders to vote to reverse the dismal status quo and begin rebuilding NYC REIT today."
