AMBASE CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Note 1 - Organization

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of AmBase Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (the "Company") are unaudited and subject to year-end adjustments. All material intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, the interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments unless otherwise disclosed, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions, that it deems reasonable, that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from such estimates and assumptions. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements presented herein are condensed and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements filed in its Annual Report on Form 10‑K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

The Company's assets currently consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, investment securities, and real estate.  The Company currently earns non-operating revenue principally consisting of earnings on investment securities and cash equivalents.  The Company continues to evaluate a number of possible acquisitions, and is engaged in the management of its assets and liabilities, including the contingent assets, as described in Notes 8 and 9.  From time to time, the Company and its subsidiaries may be named as a defendant in various lawsuits or proceedings.  The Company intends to aggressively contest all litigation and contingencies, as well as pursue all sources for contributions to settlements.

The Company's management believes that operating cash needs for the next twelve months will be met principally by the Company's current financial resources and to a lesser extent the receipt of earnings on investment securities and cash equivalents.

Note 2 – Recent Accounting Pronouncements

There are no new accounting pronouncements that would materially affect the Company's consolidated financial statements.

Note 4 –Real Estate Owned

The Company owns one commercial office building in Greenwich, Connecticut that contains approximately 14,500 square feet.  The Company utilizes approximately 3,500 square feet for its executive offices; the remaining space is currently unoccupied and available for lease.  Depreciation expense for the building is calculated on a straight-line basis over 39 years. Tenant improvements, if any, would be depreciated over the lesser of the remaining life of the tenants' lease or the estimated useful lives of the improvements.  The building is carried at cost, net of accumulated depreciation.

Although the portion of the building not being utilized by the Company is currently unoccupied and available for lease, based on the Company's analysis, the Company believes the property's fair value exceeds the property's current carrying value.  The Company's impairment analysis includes a comprehensive range of factors including but not limited to:  the location of the property; property condition; current market conditions; comparable sales; current market rents in the area; new building zoning restrictions; raw land values; new building construction costs; building operating costs; leasing values; and cap rates for comparable buildings in the area.  Varying degrees of weight are given each factor.  Based on the Company's analysis these factors taken together and/or considered individually form the basis for the Company's analysis that no impairment condition exists.

The Company performs impairment tests if events or circumstances indicate that the property's carrying value may not be recoverable.  As noted above, based on the Company's analysis the Company believes the carrying value of the property as of September 30, 2012, has not been impaired and; therefore, the carrying value of the asset is fully recoverable by the Company.

Note 5 - Savings Plan

The Company sponsors the AmBase 401(k) Savings Plan (the "Savings Plan"), which is a "Section 401(k) Plan" within the meaning of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code").  The Savings Plan permits eligible employees to make contributions of up to a percentage of their compensation, which are matched by the Company at a percentage of the employees' elected deferral.  Employee contributions to the Savings Plan are invested at the employee's discretion, in various investment funds.  The Company's matching contributions are invested in the same manner as the compensation reduction contributions.  All contributions are subject to maximum limitations contained in the Code.

The Company's matching contributions to the Savings Plan, charged to expense, were as follows:

Note 6 – Common Stock Repurchase Plan

In January 2002, the Company announced a common stock repurchase plan (the "Repurchase Plan") which allows for the repurchase by the Company of up to 10,000,000 shares of its common stock in the open market.

The Repurchase Plan is conditioned upon favorable business conditions and acceptable prices for the common stock.  Purchases under the Repurchase Plan may be made, from time to time, in the open market, through block trades or otherwise.  Depending on market conditions and other factors, purchases may be commenced or suspended any time or from time to time without prior notice.

No shares have been purchased pursuant to the Repurchase Plan in the year-to-date period ended September 30, 2012.  As of September 30, 2012, the Company has purchased 3,208,109 common shares through the Repurchase Plan leaving 6,791,891 common shares that may still be purchased pursuant to the Repurchase Plan.

Note 7 – Incentive Plans

Under the Company's 1993 Stock Incentive Plan (the "1993 Plan"), the Company may grant to officers and employees of the Company and its subsidiaries, stock options ("Options"), stock appreciation rights ("SARs"), restricted stock awards ("Restricted Stock"), merit awards ("Merit Awards") and performance share awards ("Performance Shares"), through May 28, 2018.  A predetermined number of shares the Company's Common Stock are reserved for issuance under the 1993 Plan (upon the exercise of Options and Stock Appreciation Rights, upon awards of Restricted Stock and Performance Shares); however, only a portion of such shares are available for issuance for Restricted Stock Awards and Merit Awards.  Shares issued pursuant to the 1993 Plan shall be authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock.  Options may be granted as incentive stock options ("ISOs") intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment under Federal tax law or as nonqualified stock options ("NQSOs"). SARs may be granted with respect to any Options granted under the 1993 Plan and may be exercised only when the underlying Option is exercisable. The 1993 Plan requires that the exercise price of all Options and SARs be equal to or greater than the fair value of the Company's Common Stock on the date of grant of that Option. The term of any ISO or related SAR cannot exceed ten years from the date of grant, and the term of any NQSO cannot exceed ten years and one month from the date of grant. Subject to the terms of the 1993 Plan and any additional restrictions imposed at the time of grant, Options and any related SARs ordinarily will become exercisable commencing one year after the date of grant. Options granted generally have a ten year contractual life and generally have vesting terms of two years from the date of grant. In the case of a "Change of Control" of the Company (as defined in the 1993 Plan), Options granted pursuant to the 1993 Plan may become fully exercisable as to all optioned shares from and after the date of such Change of Control in the discretion of the Committee or as may otherwise be provided in the grantee's Option agreement. Death, retirement, or absence for disability will not result in the cancellation of any Options.

The fair values of option awards are estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model ("Black-Scholes") that uses certain assumptions at the time of valuation. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company's stock. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercises and employee terminations within the valuation model. The expected term of options granted is estimated based on the contractual lives of option grants, option vesting period and historical data and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The risk-free interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury bond yield in effect at the time of grant.

The Black-Scholes option valuation model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected life of the stock-based award and stock price volatility. The assumptions utilized represent management's best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management's judgment. As a result, if other assumptions had been used, our recorded stock-based compensation expense could have been materially different from the amounts previously recorded. In addition, the Company is required to estimate the expected forfeiture rate and only recognize expense for those shares expected to vest. If our actual forfeiture rate is materially different from our estimate, the share-based compensation expense could be materially different.  The Company believes that the use of the Black-Scholes model meets the fair value measurement objectives of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and reflects all substantive characteristics of the instruments being valued.

The Black-Scholes option valuation model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of traded options, which have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions including the expected stock price volatility. Because the Company's employee stock options have characteristics significantly different from those of traded options, and because changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate, and given the substantial changes in the price per share of the Company's Common Stock, in management's opinion, the existing models do not necessarily provide a reliable single measure of the fair value of its employee stock options.

Note 8 - Income Taxes

The Company and its domestic subsidiaries file a consolidated federal income tax return.  The Company recognizes both the current and deferred tax consequences of all transactions that have been recognized in the consolidated financial statements, calculated based on the provisions of enacted tax laws, including the tax rates in effect for current and future years.  Net deferred tax assets are recognized immediately when a more likely than not criterion is met; that is, greater than 50% probability exists that the tax benefits will actually be realized sometime in the future.

There were no unrecognized tax benefits at January 1, 2012 or September 30, 2012.  Further, no significant changes in unrecognized income tax benefits are currently expected to occur over the next year.  Interest and/or penalties related to underpayments of income taxes, if applicable, would be included in interest expense and operating expenses, respectively. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any amounts for any such interest and/or penalties.  The Company's federal income tax returns for the years subsequent to 1992 have not been reviewed by the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") or state authorities except for tax year 2007, which was reviewed by the IRS and has been concluded.  The Company has not been notified of any other potential tax audits by any federal, state or local tax authorities.  As such, the Company believes the statutes of limitations for the assessment of additional federal and state tax liabilities are generally closed for tax years prior to 2009.  State income tax amounts for 2012 and 2011 are primarily attributable to a provision for a minimum tax on capital imposed by the State of Connecticut.


Based upon the Company's federal income tax returns through 2011 (filed or to be filed and/or subject to IRS audit adjustments), excluding all effects of the inclusion of Carteret/Carteret FSB from December 4, 1992 forward, as further discussed herein, the Company has federal NOL carryforwards available to reduce future federal taxable income, which expire if unused in the tax years as indicated below.  The utilization of certain carryforwards and carrybacks is subject to limitations under U.S. federal income tax laws. The amounts are as follows:

The net deferred tax asset amounts noted above do not include the anticipated tax effects of the NOL's which could be generated from the Company's investment in Carteret, resulting from the Election Decision, as more fully described above. A valuation allowance has been established for the entire net deferred tax asset, as management, at the current time, has no basis to conclude that realization is more likely than not.

As a result of the Office of Thrift Supervision's December 4, 1992 placement of Carteret in receivership, under the management of the Resolution Trust Corporation ("RTC")/Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC"), and then proposed Treasury Reg. §1.597-4(g), the Company had previously filed its 1992 and subsequent federal income tax returns with Carteret disaffiliated from the Company's consolidated federal income tax return. Based upon the impact of Treasury Reg. §1.597-4(g), which was issued in final form on December 20, 1995, a continuing review of the Company's tax basis in Carteret, and the impact of prior year tax return adjustments on the Company's 1992 federal income tax return as filed, the Company decided not to make an election pursuant to final Treasury Reg. §1.597-4(g) to disaffiliate Carteret from the Company's consolidated federal income tax return effective as of December 4, 1992 (the "Election Decision").

The Company has made numerous requests to the RTC/FDIC for tax information pertaining to Carteret and the resulting successor institution, Carteret Federal Savings Bank ("Carteret FSB"); however, all of the information still has not been received. The Company believes, as a result of remaining consolidated with Carteret FSB for federal income tax return purposes, that the Company's tax basis in its investment in Carteret/Carteret FSB can be converted into NOL's, as tax losses are incurred, which could be available to carryforward/carryback into various federal income tax return years. However, because all of the Carteret FSB tax information has not been received, the Company is unable to determine with certainty the amount of or the years in which any NOL's may ultimately be generated; if the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks will be utilized in prior federal income tax return years; or the final expiration dates of any of the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks ultimately generated.

Based on information received to date, and prior to the recognition of the 1992 tax losses reflected on the Company's 1992 amended federal income tax return, as further described below, the Company estimated that as of December 1992 it had a remaining tax basis related to its investment in Carteret/Carteret FSB of approximately $158 million. Based on the Company's Election Decision, described above, and the receipt of some of the requested information from the RTC/FDIC, the Company amended its 1992 consolidated federal income tax return to include the federal income tax effects of Carteret and Carteret FSB, (the "1992 Amended Return"). The Company is still in the process of reviewing its consolidated federal income tax returns for 1993 and subsequent years.


AMBASE CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

The Company expects that the 1992 Amended Return will generate approximately $56 million of NOL's for tax year 1992, which the Company is seeking to carryback to prior tax years to produce refunds of tax previously paid. The 1992 Amended Return has not yet been accepted by the IRS. See "Carryback Claims," herein for further information. As part of the 1992 Amended Return, approximately $56 million (of the $158 million) of Carteret/Carteret FSB tax basis is expected to be converted into NOL's, (as tax losses are incurred) in tax year 1992, and will have expired in the 2007 tax year, unless they are utilized as part of the "Carryback Claims," or absorbed in earlier years based on inclusion of certain items in the consolidated group.

The Carteret/Carteret FSB tax basis of approximately $102 million remaining after recognition of the 1992 Amended Return, may be converted into NOL carryforwards/carrybacks as additional tax losses are incurred by Carteret/Carteret FSB and may be carried back or carried forward to other tax years; may be utilized in other tax years; or could begin to expire no earlier than the 2008 tax year based upon the year any NOL's are ultimately generated. The Company can give no assurances with regard to the 1992 Amended Return, subsequent year returns, or the final amount or expiration of NOL carryforwards/carrybacks ultimately generated, if any, from the Company's tax basis in Carteret/Carteret FSB. Any NOL's ultimately generated from the Company's tax basis in Carteret/Carteret FSB, would be in addition to the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks generated based on the Company's federal income tax returns as previously filed, as further detailed above.

In March 2000, the Company filed with the IRS several carryback claims and amendments to previously filed carryback claims (the "Carryback Claims") seeking refunds from the IRS of alternative minimum tax and other federal income taxes paid by the Company in prior years plus applicable IRS interest, based on the filing of the 1992 Amended Return.  The Company can give no assurances as to the final amount of refunds, if any, or when they might be received.  The accompanying financial statements include no legal fees in connection with the Carryback Claims proceedings as these legal fees are payable pursuant to a contingent fee arrangement with the attorneys upon a final recovery received.  For additional information, see Note 9 – Legal Proceedings.
The FDIC has previously filed a federal income tax return for Carteret FSB for 1995 (as well as other years), which indicates that Carteret FSB allegedly could owe a 1995 federal income tax liability of $32 million, which including interest and penalty thereon, is alleged to be in excess of $139 million. The FDIC has stated to the United States Court of Federal Claims ("Court of Claims") that the tax amounts are only estimates and are highly contingent.  However, it is possible that the IRS may try to collect the alleged Carteret FSB federal income taxes from the Carteret FSB receivership.
The Company believes the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns filed by the FDIC were improperly filed and are neither accurate nor valid.  Based on the information received to date, if the correct Carteret FSB federal income tax results were included with the Company's originally filed federal income tax returns, the Company, based upon consultation with its legal and tax advisors, believes that no additional material federal income tax would be owed by the Company, although this cannot be assured because a contrary result is possible, given the uncertainty with various legal and factual assumptions underlying the Company's beliefs. This assessment included among other items a review of the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns as prepared by the FDIC and the correction of errors originally reported therein, the proper application of federal NOL carryforwards and carrybacks, and the adherence to statute of limitation provisions contained in the Internal Revenue Code, as amended.

As explained above, although the Company does not believe that Carteret FSB or the Company will have a material federal income tax liability related to Carteret FSB for tax year 1995 (or any other tax year), the Company can give no assurances of the final amounts, if any, of federal income taxes owed by the Carteret FSB receivership or by the Company as a result of the Carteret FSB receivership operations.  The Company is pursuing the Carryback Claims, as further described above, which could have an impact on the analysis of the prior year tax information. For further information on the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings, see Note 9 herein. The discussion of the Carteret FSB federal income tax results is intended to provide details as to the potential inter-relationship of the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns with the Company's federal income tax positions. It is not a reflection of any federal income tax liability of the Company arising from the Carteret receivership operations.

Note 9 - Legal Proceedings

The information contained in Item 8 - Note 10 in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, is incorporated by reference herein and the defined terms set forth below have the same meaning ascribed to them in that report.  There have been no material developments in such legal proceedings, except as set forth below.

The Company is or has been a party in a number of lawsuits or proceedings, including the following:

Supervisory Goodwill Litigation - A Settlement Agreement in the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings between AmBase, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation–Receiver ("FDIC-R") and the Department of Justice ("DOJ") on behalf of the United States of America (the "United States"), was executed on August 31, 2012,  (the "Settlement Agreement").  The Settlement Agreement was subject to approval by the United States Court of Federal Claims (the "Court of Federal Claims").  On October 11, 2012, the Court of Federal Claims issued an order approving the Settlement Agreement, and on October 19, 2012, the United States paid $180,650,000 (one hundred-eighty million, six hundred-fifty thousand dollars) directly to AmBase.  As part of the Settlement Agreement, the Company is also entitled to a tax gross-up in an amount to be determined if and when any federal taxes should be imposed on the settlement amount and includes other terms as set forth in the Settlement Agreement.  A copy of the Settlement Agreement was included as an exhibit to the Company's Form 8-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 22, 2012.  The Company has no contingent fee agreements in place with its attorneys or any outside advisor in connection with the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings or award.

Pursuant to the 2007 Employment Agreement, as amended between the Company and Richard A.

Federal income tax refund suit on Carryback Claims. In March 2000, the Company filed with the IRS several carryback claims and amendments to previously filed carryback claims (the "Carryback Claims") seeking refunds from the IRS of alternative minimum tax and other federal income taxes paid by the Company in prior years plus applicable IRS interest, based on the filing of the 1992 Amended Return. In April 2003, IRS examiners issued a letter to the Company proposing to disallow the Carryback Claims. The Company sought administrative review of the letter by protesting to the Appeals Division of the IRS. In February 2005, IRS appeals officials completed their review of the Carryback Claims and disallowed them. On April 29, 2008, the Company filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (the "Court") for the tax refunds it seeks, plus interest, with respect to the Carryback Claims.  On September 29, 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice, representing defendant United States in the suit, filed a Motion to Dismiss.  In response, on October 19, 2009, the Company filed its opposition to the Government's Motion to Dismiss, as well as the Company's own Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  In June 2010, the Court issued a Memorandum Decision conditionally granting the United States' Motion to Dismiss the case but allowing the Company to conduct limited discovery to establish whether the Court has jurisdiction.  On August 30, 2010, the Company filed a Motion to Set Aside the Court's Conditional Order of Dismissal.  On February 28, 2011, the Court granted the Company's motion and issued a Memorandum of Decision concluding that the Company had timely filed a refund claim for tax year 1992 seeking to adjust the amount of bad debt deduction and that the case should not be dismissed.  In March 2011, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment based on the Court's ruling that the Company's refund claims were timely filed.  In May 2011, the Government filed a Cross Motion for Summary Judgment and an opposition to the Company's Summary Judgment Motion.  In June 2011, the Company filed a Memorandum in Opposition to the Government's Cross Motion for Summary Judgment and a Reply to the Governments Opposition to the Company's Summary Judgment Motion, and the Government in June 2011, subsequently filed a response brief.  The Court granted the Company's motion in part and denied it in part, in a Memorandum Decision dated November 30, 2011.  On January 26, 2012, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment as to the amount of additional bad debt deduction that should be allowed.  On February 16, 2012, the Government filed an Opposition to the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  On February 28, 2012, the Company filed a Reply to the Government's Opposition to the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  On May 23, 2012, the Court issued an order denying the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment.  Under the Court's rulings, the Company would not be entitled to recover a tax refund.  On July 5, 2012, the Court entered its final judgment and order determining that the Company is not entitled to a refund.  The Company has appealed the adverse judgment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where the matter is pending.  The Company can give no assurances as to the final amount of refunds, if any, or when they might be received.  The accompanying financial statements exclude legal fees in connection with the Carryback Claims proceedings as these legal fees are payable pursuant to a contingency fee arrangement with the attorneys upon a final recovery received. See Note 8 – Income Taxes for further information.

Note 10 - Subsequent Events

The Company has performed a review of events subsequent to the balance sheet dated September 30, 2012, through the report issuance date.

As a result of the receipt of the Supervisory Goodwill settlement proceeds received and after various economic, financial, business, tax, accounting, regulatory, legal and administrative considerations, on October 22, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $2.00 per common share to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 21, 2012, payable on December 10, 2012.

Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, which follows, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes, which are contained in Part I - Item 1, herein and the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.




BUSINESS OVERVIEW

AmBase Corporation (the "Company") is a holding company which, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, owns a commercial office building in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Company previously owned an insurance company and a savings bank.

In February 1991, the Company sold its ownership interest in The Home Insurance Company and its subsidiaries. On December 4, 1992, Carteret Savings Bank, FA ("Carteret") was placed in receivership by the Office of Thrift Supervision ("OTS").

The Company's assets currently consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents, investment securities, and real estate owned. The Company earns non-operating revenue consisting principally of investment earnings on investment securities and cash equivalents. The Company continues to evaluate a number of possible acquisitions and is engaged in the management of its assets and liabilities, including the contingent assets associated with its legal claims, as described in Part I – Item 1. Discussions and negotiations are ongoing with respect to certain of these matters.  From time to time, the Company and its subsidiaries may be named as a defendant in various lawsuits or proceedings.  The Company intends to aggressively contest all litigation and contingencies, as well as pursue all sources for contributions to settlements.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company's assets at September 30, 2012, aggregated $9,028,000, consisting principally of cash and cash equivalents of $1,690,000, investment securities of $5,199,000, and real estate owned, net of $1,885,000.  At September 30, 2012, the Company's liabilities aggregated $200,000.  Total stockholders' equity was $8,828,000.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, cash of $1,541,000 was used by operations, due to the payment of operating expenses and prior year accruals.  The cash needs of the Company for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, were satisfied by the Company's financial resources and to a lesser extent the receipt of investment earnings received on investment securities and cash equivalents.  Management believes that the Company's liquid assets are sufficient to continue operations for the next twelve months.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2011, cash of $1,810,000 was used by operations, primarily due to the payment of operating expenses and to a lesser extent the payment of prior year accruals, partially offset by the receipt of interest income and investment earnings.  The cash needs of the Company for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were satisfied by the Company's financial resources and to a lesser extent receipt of investment earnings received on investment securities and cash equivalents.

Real estate owned consists of one commercial office building in Greenwich, Connecticut which the Company owns and manages.  The building is approximately 14,500 square feet; approximately 3,500 square feet is utilized by the Company for its executive offices; the remaining space is currently unoccupied and available for lease.  Although the portion of the building not being utilized by the Company is currently unoccupied and available for lease, based on the Company's analysis, including but not limited to current market rents in the area, leasing values, and comparable property sales, the Company believes the property's fair value exceeds the property's current carrying value.  Therefore, the Company believes the carrying value of the property as of September 30, 2012, has not been impaired.

Accounts payable and accrued liabilities as of September 30, 2012, decreased from December 31, 2011, principally as a result of the payment of prior year accruals.

Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, executed on August 31, 2012, in the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings between AmBase, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation–Receiver ("FDIC-R") and the Department of Justice ("DOJ") on behalf of the United States of America (the "United States") (the "Settlement Agreement").  The Settlement Agreement was subject to approval by the United States Court of Federal Claims (the "Court of Federal Claims").  On October 11, 2012, the Court of Federal Claims issued an order approving the Settlement Agreement, and on October 19, 2012, the United States paid $180,650,000 (one hundred-eighty million, six hundred-fifty thousand dollars) directly to AmBase.  As part of the Settlement Agreement, the Company is also entitled to a tax gross-up in an amount to be determined if and when any federal taxes should be imposed on the settlement amount and includes other terms as set forth in the Settlement Agreement.  A copy of the Settlement Agreement was included as an exhibit to the Company's Form 8-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 22, 2012.  The Company has no contingent fee agreements in place with its attorneys or any outside advisor in connection with the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings or award.  For additional information, see Note 9 – Legal Proceedings.

Pursuant to the 2007 Employment Agreement, as amended between the Company and Richard A. Bianco, the Company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer ("Mr. Bianco") (the "2007 Employment Agreement"), Mr. Bianco is to be paid an incentive payment of approximately $13.6 million based on the receipt by the Company of the $180,650,000 Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings settlement award, plus federal tax gross-up. An additional amount, to be determined, could be due to Mr. Bianco pursuant to the 2007 Employment Agreement, based on value realized by the Company with respect to the gross-up for federal taxes on the settlement amount.

As a result of the receipt of the Supervisory Goodwill settlement proceeds received and after various economic, financial, business, tax, accounting, regulatory, legal and administrative considerations, on October 22, 2012, the Company's Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $2.00 per common share to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 21, 2012, payable on December 10, 2012, which will result in the cash distribution to the Company's shareholders of an aggregate of approximately $87.5 million.

Other than as noted above, there are no other material commitments for capital expenditures as of September 30, 2012.  See Part I – Item I – Notes 9 and 10 for information relating to the Company's Supervisory Goodwill settlement, the Board of Director's dividend declaration and the incentive payment payable.  Inflation has had no material impact on the business and operations of the Company.

The Company continues to evaluate a number of possible acquisitions and is engaged in the management of its assets and liabilities, including the contingent assets associated with its legal claims. Discussions and negotiations are ongoing with respect to certain of these matters. The Company intends to aggressively contest all litigation and contingencies, as well as pursue all sources for contributions to settlements. For a discussion of lawsuits and proceedings, including the Supervisory Goodwill litigation and Carryback Claims see Part I - Item 1 - Note 9.

Results of Operations for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012 vs. the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2011

The Company earns non-operating revenue consisting principally of investment earnings on investment securities and cash equivalents.  The Company's management believes that operating cash needs for the next twelve months will be met principally by the Company's financial resources and to a lesser extent, the receipt of investment earnings on investment securities and cash equivalents.

Compensation and benefits decreased to $309,000 and $964,000 in the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $314,000 and $982,000 in the respective 2011 periods.  The decrease in the 2012 third quarter and nine month periods is due to lower compensation expenses due to reduced staffing levels as well as a lower level of benefit costs in the 2012 periods versus the same 2011 periods. No stock based compensation expense was recorded in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 or September 30, 2011.

Professional and outside services increased to $128,000 and $333,000 in the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $58,000 and $195,000 in the respective 2011 periods.  The increase in the 2012 third quarter and nine month periods as compared to the 2011 respective periods is principally the result of a higher level of legal and professional fees principally relating to the Supervisory Goodwill litigation settlement.  The Company has no contingent fee agreements in place with its attorneys or any outside advisor in connection with the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings or award.

Property operating and maintenance expenses were $22,000 and $66,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared to $17,000 and $67,000 in the respective 2011 periods.  The increased expenses in 2012 third quarter compared to the 2011 third quarter period is due to an increase in the overall level of repairs and maintenance expenses

Insurance expenses of $20,000 and $38,000 in the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively increased from prior year levels of $6,000 and $25,000 in the respective 2011 periods due to the timing of certain insurance policies.

Other operating expenses increased to $42,000 and $92,000 in the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, compared with $29,000 and $76,000 in the respective 2011 periods due to general price increases.




Interest income in the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, decreased to $1,000 and $5,000, respectively from $1,000 and $6,000 in the respective 2011 periods.  The decreased interest income for the 2012 nine month period is principally due to a decreased investment yield in 2012, compared with 2011, and a lower level of cash equivalents and investment securities.

Realized gains on sales of investment securities were $6,000 and $31,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively and $3,000 and $18,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively.  The gains are the result of the realization of gains on sales of securities due to market appreciation.

Other income of $17,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, is attributable to recovery of funds by the Company from items previously written off. Other income of $14,000 and $119,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively, is attributable to recovery of funds by the Company from items previously written off.

The Company recognized income tax provisions of $11,000 and $33,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, as compared with income tax provisions of $9,000 and $39,000 for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively.  The income tax provision for the 2012 and 2011 periods are primarily attributable to a provision for a minimum tax on capital imposed by the state of Connecticut. Income taxes applicable to operating income (loss) are generally determined by applying the estimated effective annual income tax rates to pretax income (loss) for the year-to-date interim period.  Income taxes applicable to unusual or infrequently occurring items are provided in the period in which such items occur.

only a portion of such shares are available for issuance for Restricted Stock Awards and Merit Awards. &#160;Shares issued pursuant to the 1993 Plan shall be authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock. &#160;Options may be granted as incentive stock options ("ISOs") intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment under Federal tax law or as nonqualified stock options ("NQSOs"). SARs may be granted with respect to any Options granted under the 1993 Plan and may be exercised only when the underlying Option is exercisable. The 1993 Plan requires that the exercise price of all Options and SARs be equal to or greater than the fair value of the Company's Common Stock on the date of grant of that Option. The term of any ISO or related SAR cannot exceed ten years from the date of grant, and the term of any NQSO cannot exceed ten years and one month from the date of grant. Subject to the terms of the 1993 Plan and any additional restrictions imposed at the time of grant, Options and any related SARs ordinarily will become exercisable commencing one year after the date of grant. Options granted generally have a ten year contractual life and generally have vesting terms of two years from the date of grant. In the case of a "Change of Control" of the Company (as defined in the 1993 Plan), Options granted pursuant to the 1993 Plan may become fully exercisable as to all optioned shares from and after the date of such Change of Control in the discretion of the Committee or as may otherwise be provided in the grantee's Option agreement. Death, retirement, or absence for disability will not result in the cancellation of any Options.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The fair values of option awards are estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes-Merton option valuation model ("Black-Scholes") that uses certain assumptions at the time of valuation. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company's stock. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercises and employee terminations within the valuation model. The expected term of options granted is estimated based on the contractual lives of option grants, option vesting period and historical data and represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding. The risk-free interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury bond yield in effect at the time of grant.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Black-Scholes option valuation model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected life of the stock-based award and stock price volatility. The assumptions utilized represent management's best estimates, but these estimates involve inherent uncertainties and the application of management's judgment. As a result, if other assumptions had been used, our recorded stock-based compensation expense could have been materially different from the amounts previously recorded. In addition, the Company is required to estimate the expected forfeiture rate and only recognize expense for those shares expected to vest. If our actual forfeiture rate is materially different from our estimate, the share-based compensation expense could be materially different. &#160;The Company believes that the use of the Black-Scholes model meets the fair value measurement objectives of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and reflects all substantive characteristics of the instruments being valued.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Black-Scholes option valuation model was developed for use in estimating the fair value of traded options, which have no vesting restrictions and are fully transferable. In addition, option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions including the expected stock price volatility. Because the Company's employee stock options have characteristics significantly different from those of traded options, and because changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimate, and given the substantial changes in the price per share of the Company's Common Stock, in management's opinion, the existing models do not necessarily provide a reliable single measure of the fair value of its employee stock options.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;

that is, greater than 50% probability exists that the tax benefits will actually be realized sometime in the future.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">There were no unrecognized tax benefits at January 1, 2012 or September 30, 2012. &#160;Further, no significant changes in unrecognized income tax benefits are currently expected to occur over the next year. &#160;Interest and/or penalties related to underpayments of income taxes, if applicable, would be included in interest expense and operating expenses, respectively. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any amounts for any such interest and/or penalties. &#160;The Company's federal income tax returns for the years subsequent to 1992 have not been reviewed by the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") or state authorities except for tax year 2007, which was reviewed by the IRS and has been concluded. &#160;The Company has not been notified of any other potential tax audits by any federal, state or local tax authorities. &#160;As such, the Company believes the statutes of limitations for the assessment of additional federal and state tax liabilities are generally closed for tax years prior to 2009. &#160;State income tax amounts for 2012 and 2011 are primarily attributable to a provision for a minimum tax on capital imposed by the State of Connecticut.</div><div><br /></div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">Based upon the Company's federal income tax returns through 2011 (filed or to be filed and/or subject to IRS audit adjustments), excluding all effects of the inclusion of Carteret/Carteret FSB from December 4, 1992 forward, as further discussed herein, the Company has federal NOL carryforwards available to reduce future federal taxable income, which expire if unused in the tax years as indicated below. &#160;The utilization of certain carryforwards and carrybacks is subject to limitations under U.S. federal income tax laws.

Based upon the impact of Treasury Reg. &#167;1.597-4(g), which was issued in final form on December 20, 1995, a continuing review of the Company's tax basis in Carteret, and the impact of prior year tax return adjustments on the Company's 1992 federal income tax return as filed, the Company decided not to make an election pursuant to final Treasury Reg. &#167;1.597-4(g) to disaffiliate Carteret from the Company's consolidated federal income tax return effective as of December 4, 1992 (the "Election Decision").</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Company has made numerous requests to the RTC/FDIC for tax information pertaining to Carteret and the resulting successor institution, Carteret Federal Savings Bank ("Carteret FSB"); however, all of the information still has not been received. The Company believes, as a result of remaining consolidated with Carteret FSB for federal income tax return purposes, that the Company's tax basis in its investment in Carteret/Carteret FSB can be converted into NOL's, as tax losses are incurred, which could be available to carryforward/carryback into various federal income tax return years. However, because all of the Carteret FSB tax information has not been received, the Company is unable to determine with certainty the amount of or the years in which any NOL's may ultimately be generated; if the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks will be utilized in prior federal income tax return years; or the final expiration dates of any of the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks ultimately generated.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">Based on information received to date, and prior to the recognition of the 1992 tax losses reflected on the Company's 1992 amended federal income tax return, as further described below, the Company estimated that as of December 1992 it had a remaining tax basis related to its investment in Carteret/Carteret FSB of approximately $158 million. Based on the Company's Election Decision, described above, and the receipt of some of the requested information from the RTC/FDIC, the Company amended its 1992 consolidated federal income tax return to include the federal income tax effects of Carteret and Carteret FSB, (the "1992 Amended Return").

As part of the 1992 Amended Return, approximately $56 million (of the $158 million) of Carteret/Carteret FSB tax basis is expected to be converted into NOL's, (as tax losses are incurred) in tax year 1992, and will have expired in the 2007 tax year, unless they are utilized as part of the "<font style="font-style: italic; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">Carryback Claims</font>," or absorbed in earlier years based on inclusion of certain items in the consolidated group.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Carteret/Carteret FSB tax basis of approximately $102 million remaining after recognition of the 1992 Amended Return, may be converted into NOL carryforwards/carrybacks as additional tax losses are incurred by Carteret/Carteret FSB and may be carried back or carried forward to other tax years; may be utilized in other tax years; or could begin to expire no earlier than the 2008 tax year based upon the year any NOL's are ultimately generated. The Company can give no assurances with regard to the 1992 Amended Return, subsequent year returns, or the final amount or expiration of NOL carryforwards/carrybacks ultimately generated, if any, from the Company's tax basis in Carteret/Carteret FSB. Any NOL's ultimately generated from the Company's tax basis in Carteret/Carteret FSB, would be in addition to the NOL carryforwards/carrybacks generated based on the Company's federal income tax returns as previously filed, as further detailed above.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">In March 2000, the Company filed with the IRS several carryback claims and amendments to previously filed carryback claims (the "Carryback Claims") seeking refunds from the IRS of alternative minimum tax and other federal income taxes paid by the Company in prior years plus applicable IRS interest, based on the filing of the 1992 Amended Return. &#160;The Company can give no assurances as to the final amount of refunds, if any, or when they might be received. &#160;The accompanying financial statements include no legal fees in connection with the Carryback Claims proceedings as these legal fees are payable pursuant to a contingent fee arrangement with the attorneys upon a final recovery received. &#160;For additional information, see<font style="font-style: italic; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;"> Note 9 &#8211; Legal Proceedings</font>.</div><div style="text-align: justify; margin-top: 12pt; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; margin-bottom: 12pt; font-size: 10pt;">The FDIC has previously filed a federal income tax return for Carteret FSB for 1995 (as well as other years), which indicates that Carteret FSB allegedly could owe a 1995 federal income tax liability of $32 million, which including interest and penalty thereon, is alleged to be in excess of $139 million. The FDIC has stated to the United States Court of Federal Claims ("Court of Claims") that the tax amounts are only estimates and are highly contingent. &#160;However, it is possible that the IRS may try to collect the alleged Carteret FSB federal income taxes from the Carteret FSB receivership.</div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Company believes the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns filed by the FDIC were improperly filed and are neither accurate nor valid. &#160;Based on the information received to date, if the correct Carteret FSB federal income tax results were included with the Company's originally filed federal income tax returns, the Company, based upon consultation with its legal and tax advisors, believes that no additional material federal income tax would be owed by the Company, although this cannot be assured because a contrary result is possible, given the uncertainty with various legal and factual assumptions underlying the Company's beliefs. This assessment included among other items a review of the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns as prepared by the FDIC and the correction of errors originally reported therein, the proper application of federal NOL carryforwards and carrybacks, and the adherence to statute of limitation provisions contained in the Internal Revenue Code, as amended.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">As explained above, although the Company does not believe that Carteret FSB or the Company will have a material federal income tax liability related to Carteret FSB for tax year 1995 (or any other tax year), the Company can give no assurances of the final amounts, if any, of federal income taxes owed by the Carteret FSB receivership or by the Company as a result of the Carteret FSB receivership operations. &#160;The Company is pursuing the Carryback Claims, as further described above, which could have an impact on the analysis of the prior year tax information. For further information on the Supervisory Goodwill legal proceedings, see <font style="font-style: italic; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">Note 9</font> herein. The discussion of the Carteret FSB federal income tax results is intended to provide details as to the potential inter-relationship of the Carteret FSB federal income tax returns with the Company's federal income tax positions. It is not a reflection of any federal income tax liability of the Company arising from the Carteret receivership operations.</div><div><br /></div></div> -520000 -448000 -1476000 -1268000 11000 9000 33000 39000 -27000 -41000 -27000 -27000 -8000 -522000 0 -2000 1000 1000 5000 6000 1900000 1900000 <div><div style="text-align: justify;

In March 2000, the Company filed with the IRS several carryback claims and amendments to previously filed carryback claims (the "Carryback Claims") seeking refunds from the IRS of alternative minimum tax and other federal income taxes paid by the Company in prior years plus applicable IRS interest, based on the filing of the 1992 Amended Return. In April 2003, IRS examiners issued a letter to the Company proposing to disallow the Carryback Claims. The Company sought administrative review of the letter by protesting to the Appeals Division of the IRS. In February 2005, IRS appeals officials completed their review of the Carryback Claims and disallowed them. On April 29, 2008, the Company filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut (the "Court") for the tax refunds it seeks, plus interest, with respect to the Carryback Claims. &#160;On September 29, 2009, the U.S. Department of Justice, representing defendant United States in the suit, filed a Motion to Dismiss. &#160;In response, on October 19, 2009, the Company filed its opposition to the Government's Motion to Dismiss, as well as the Company's own Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. &#160;In June 2010, the Court issued a Memorandum Decision conditionally granting the United States' Motion to Dismiss the case but allowing the Company to conduct limited discovery to establish whether the Court has jurisdiction. &#160;On August 30, 2010, the Company filed a Motion to Set Aside the Court's Conditional Order of Dismissal. &#160;On February 28, 2011, the Court granted the Company's motion and issued a Memorandum of Decision concluding that the Company had timely filed a refund claim for tax year 1992 seeking to adjust the amount of bad debt deduction and that the case should not be dismissed. &#160;In March 2011, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment based on the Court's ruling that the Company's refund claims were timely filed. &#160;In May 2011, the Government filed a Cross Motion for Summary Judgment and an opposition to the Company's Summary Judgment Motion. &#160;In June 2011, the Company filed a Memorandum in Opposition to the Government's Cross Motion for Summary Judgment and a Reply to the Governments Opposition to the Company's Summary Judgment Motion, and the Government in June 2011, subsequently filed a response brief. &#160;The Court granted the Company's motion in part and denied it in part, in a Memorandum Decision dated November 30, 2011. &#160;On January 26, 2012, the Company filed a Motion for Partial Summary Judgment as to the amount of additional bad debt deduction that should be allowed. &#160;On February 16, 2012, the Government filed an Opposition to the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. &#160;On February 28, 2012, the Company filed a Reply to the Government's Opposition to the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. &#160;On May 23, 2012, the Court issued an order denying the Company's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment. &#160;Under the Court's rulings, the Company would not be entitled to recover a tax refund. &#160;On July 5, 2012, the Court entered its final judgment and order determining that the Company is not entitled to a refund. &#160;The Company has appealed the adverse judgment to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, where the matter is pending. &#160;The Company can give no assurances as to the final amount of refunds, if any, or when they might be received. &#160;The accompanying financial statements exclude legal fees in connection with the Carryback Claims proceedings as these legal fees are payable pursuant to a contingency fee arrangement with the attorneys upon a final recovery received.

All material intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. In the opinion of management, the interim financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments unless otherwise disclosed, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company's financial position, results of operations and cash flows. Results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP") for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions, that it deems reasonable, that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. &#160;Actual results could differ from such estimates and assumptions. The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements presented herein are condensed and should be read in conjunction with the Company's consolidated financial statements filed in its Annual Report on Form 10&#8209;K for the year ended December 31, 2011.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;

font-weight: bold;">Note 4 &#8211;Real Estate Owned</div><div><br /></div><div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Company owns one commercial office building in Greenwich, Connecticut that contains approximately 14,500 square feet. &#160;The Company utilizes approximately 3,500 square feet for its executive offices; the remaining space is currently unoccupied and available for lease. &#160;Depreciation expense for the building is calculated on a straight-line basis over 39 years. Tenant improvements, if any, would be depreciated over the lesser of the remaining life of the tenants' lease or the estimated useful lives of the improvements. &#160;The building is carried at cost, net of accumulated depreciation.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">Although the portion of the building not being utilized by the Company is currently unoccupied and available for lease, based on the Company's analysis, the Company believes the property's fair value exceeds the property's current carrying value. &#160;The Company's impairment analysis includes a comprehensive range of factors including but not limited to: &#160;the location of the property; property condition; current market conditions; comparable sales; current market rents in the area; new building zoning restrictions; raw land values; new building construction costs; building operating costs; leasing values; and cap rates for comparable buildings in the area. &#160;Varying degrees of weight are given each factor. &#160;Based on the Company's analysis these factors taken together and/or considered individually form the basis for the Company's analysis that no impairment condition exists.</div><div><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Company performs impairment tests if events or circumstances indicate that the property's carrying value may not be recoverable. &#160;As noted above, based on the Company's analysis the Company believes the carrying value of the property as of September 30, 2012, has not been impaired and; therefore, the carrying value of the asset is fully recoverable by the Company.</div></div></div> 2454000 2454000 1885000 1921000 569000 533000 <div><div style="text-align: justify; font-family: 'Times New Roman', serif;
