BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- September 12, 2012

International real estate investment and services firm Kennedy Wilson (NYSE:
KW) today announced that the company and its partners acquired a 209,329
square foot multi-tenant retail center in Orem, Utah. This investment follows
two recent retail real estate purchases by the company and its investment
partners, including 15,118 square feet of retail and office space in Malibu,
California and a 114,404 square foot retail center in Boise, Idaho. Partners
in these acquisitions include, among others, The LeFrak Organization and
Kennedy Wilson Fund IV.

“These retail investments provide the company with a predictable and steady
income stream through credit tenants such as Burlington Coat Factory, In-N-Out
Burger, Outback Steakhouse and Staples,” said John Prabhu, president of KW
Commercial Investment Group.

The combined purchase price of the acquisitions was $37.3 million. The company
contributed $9.9 million of equity in the deals, with $23.1 million of debt
outstanding and the balance from partner equity. The trailing 12-month net
operating income of the properties is $2.9 million. Kennedy Wilson plans to
reposition all of the properties to capture further income potential.

Kennedy Wilson, together with its institutional partners, has acquired
approximately $6.6 billion of real estate and real estate related debt since
the beginning of 2010.
