                            in Richmond, Virginia

WASHINGTON, D.C. - July 9, 2013 - HFF announced today that it has closed the
sale of the MeadWestvaco World Headquarters, a 310,950-square-foot, trophy
office building in Richmond, Virginia.

HFF marketed the property on behalf of the seller, NewMarket Corporation.
Select Income REIT purchased the asset for $143.6 million free and clear of
existing debt, excluding transaction costs.

The MeadWestvaco World Headquarters is located at 501 South 5th Street on the
banks of the James River close to Interstates 95 and 195, James River Park and
Richmond's River District. Completed in 2009 as a build-to-suit for the
global packing and packaging solutions firm, the nine-story property features
a conference and training center, cafeteria, coffee shop, fitness center with
locker rooms, and has a Four Globes rating from the Green Building Initiative,
which is the highest rating available.

The HFF investment sales team representing the seller was led by executive
managing director Stephen Conley, senior managing directors Dek Potts, Jim
Meisel and Andrew Weir and senior real estate analyst Jess Dickinson.

According to Dek Potts, "HFF was very pleased with the response from the
investment community for this trophy quality asset. Everyone who toured the
property recognized its irreplaceable location on the banks of the James River
and the intrinsic value of the asset, as well as MeadWestvaco's strong credit
and commitment to Richmond. These qualities led to highly competitive pricing
for the asset."

Ethyl Corporation, develops, manufactures, blends, and delivers chemical
additives that enhance the performance of petroleum products. From
