In March, the Company acquired, in four individual transactions, four
warehouse and distribution facilities consisting of a total of 986,766 square
feet for approximately $38 million. The acquired properties are located in
DeKalb, Illinois; Ocala, Florida; Marion, Iowa and Londonderry, New

In total, the Company has acquired seven industrial facilities consisting of
approximately 1.8 million square feet in the first quarter of 2013 for
approximately $61 million. On a square foot basis, the first quarter's
acquisitions increased the Company's asset base by 6% over the prior quarter.
These properties were purchased at an average cap rate of 9+% based on
in-place income.

The Company has entered into contracts to acquire six additional properties
for a combined purchase price of approximately $45 million. These contracts
are subject to various closing conditions which have not yet been satisfied,
so there can be no assurance that these transactions will be consummated.

The Company also signed two new leases in March consisting of approximately
86,000 square feet and one renewal of an existing lease consisting of
approximately 211,000 square feet.

rate for the leases expiring in the first quarter of 2013 was 100%. The
