The Company has a policy of not providing quarterly or annual guidance.
The Company was formed through a May 2007 merger between Private Reis and Wellsford. Reis carries on the businesses of Private Reis and Wellsford.
Private Reis was founded in 1980 as a provider of commercial real estate market information. Reis maintains a proprietary database containing detailed information on commercial real properties in metropolitan markets and neighborhoods throughout the U.S. The database contains information on apartment, office, retail and industrial properties and is used by real estate investors, lenders and other professionals to make informed buying, selling and financing decisions. In addition, Reis data is used by debt and equity investors to assess, quantify and manage the risks of default and loss associated with individual mortgages, properties, portfolios and real estate backed securities. Reis currently provides its information services to many of the nation's leading lending institutions, equity investors, brokers and appraisers.
Reis's flagship product is Reis SE, which provides web-browser based online access to information and analytical tools designed to facilitate both debt and equity transactions and ongoing evaluations. In addition to trend and forecast analysis at metropolitan and neighborhood levels, the product offers detailed building-specific information such as rents, vacancy rates, lease terms, property sales, new construction listings and property valuation estimates. Reis SE is designed to meet the demand for timely and accurate information to support the decision-making of property owners, developers and builders, banks and non-bank lenders, and equity investors, all of whom require access to information on both the performance and pricing of assets, including detailed data on market transactions, supply, absorption, rents and prices. This information is critical to all aspects of valuing assets and financing their acquisition, development and construction.

Prior to the Merger, Wellsford was a public company operating as a real estate merchant banking firm which acquired, developed, financed and operated real properties and invested in private real estate companies. The Company's primary operating activities immediately prior to the Merger were the development, construction and sale of its three residential projects and its approximate 23% ownership interest in Private Reis. The Company is seeking to exit the residential development business in order to focus solely on the Reis Services business.
