The Company's office portfolio was 93.0% occupied as of June 30, 2007 compared to 93.8% occupied as of March 31, 2007. The occupied percentage represents the leased portion of the Company's office portfolio less those leases where the rent commencement date has yet to occur. During the second quarter, the Company signed 156 new and renewal leases, totaling approximately 570,405 square feet, resulting in overall positive net absorption of 51,945 square feet.

The building is approximately 50,000 rental square feet and is currently 100% leased through December 2019.

FFO represents net income (loss), computed in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of depreciable operating property, real estate depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs) and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. The Company uses FFO as a supplemental performance measure because, in excluding real estate depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions, it provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, captures trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs. We also believe that, as a widely recognized measure of the performance of REITs, FFO will be used by investors as a basis to compare our operating performance with that of other REITs. However, because FFO excludes depreciation and amortization and captures neither the changes in the value of our properties that results from use or market conditions nor the level of capital expenditures and leasing commissions necessary to maintain the operating performance of our properties, all of which have real economic effect and could materially impact our results from operations, the utility of FFO as a measure of our performance is limited. Other equity REITs may not calculate FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition and, accordingly, our FFO may not be comparable to such other REITs' FFO. Accordingly, FFO should be considered only as a supplement to net income as a measure of our performance. FFO should not be used as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to pay dividends. FFO should not be used as a supplement to or substitute for cash flow from operating activities computed in accordance with GAAP. FFO per share - diluted is calculated by dividing FFO by the average number of fully diluted shares outstanding during the quarter ended June 30, 2007.
