CHICAGO -- January 31, 2013

Prudential Mortgage Capital Company provided a $105 million loan to
Multi-Employer Property Trust as advised by its real estate advisor, Bentall
Kennedy, to finance 200 West Madison, a 928,000-square-foot office tower in
Chicago. Prudential Mortgage Capital Company is the commercial mortgage
lending business of Prudential Financial, Inc. (NYSE:PRU).

The 10-year, fixed-rate loan is a first mortgage for MEPT on the property.
Originally constructed in 1983 and significantly renovated over the last
several years, the 45-story tower stands on the eastern border of Chicago’s
West Loop, with access to major commuter transportation lines and area
highways. The LEED^® Silver and Energy Star certified building is within
walking distance to the Ogilvie Transportation Center and Union Station. Dave
Hendrickson and Keith Largay, of Jones Lang LaSalle’s Chicago office, arranged
the transaction.

“This building’s quality and central location, combined with the quality of
the sponsorship, made this transaction extremely attractive,” said Sarah
Teunis, a director with Prudential Mortgage Capital Company’s New York City
office who led the transaction in partnership with Bryan McDonnell, a
principal with Prudential Mortgage Capital Company’s Arlington, Va., office.

The building, leased as a multi-tenant tower, offers floor-to-ceiling glass
perimeters that allow for unobstructed views from all floors on the east and
south sides. A sawtooth façade with a dramatic three-story glass atrium
provides maximum natural light and allows for up to eight corner offices or
conference rooms. The building also offers such amenities as a staffed fitness
center, tenants-only conference room, and a major coffee retailer on-site.
