Debt Transactions

In connection with the acquisition of the two properties in Oakland, California, we assumed a loan for $20 million. In connection with the acquisition of the 11 properties in Florida and Maryland, we borrowed $100 million on our amended credit facility with KeyBank and also borrowed $105 million on a term loan secured by the properties, and an additional $30 million on an unsecured loan, both with KeyBank.

Subsequent to June 30, 2016, on July 28, 2016, we entered into a CMBS loan agreement with KeyBank in which we borrowed $95 million. The CMBS loan has an initial term of ten years, maturing on August 1, 2026. Monthly payments due under the loan are interest-only for the first five years and payments reflecting a 30-year amortization schedule begin thereafter. The loan bears interest at 3.89%. The proceeds of the CMBS loan were primarily used to pay down the amended KeyBank credit facility.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING NOI

Net Operating Income ("NOI")

NOI is a non-GAAP measure that we define as net income (loss), computed in accordance with GAAP, generated from properties before corporate general and administrative expenses, asset management fees, interest expense, depreciation, amortization, acquisition expenses and other non-property related expenses. We believe that NOI is useful for investors as it provides a measure of the operating performance of our operating assets because NOI excludes certain items that are not associated with the operation of the properties. Additionally, we believe that NOI is a widely accepted measure of comparative operating performance in the real estate community. However, our use of the term NOI may not be comparable to that of other real estate companies as they may have different methodologies for computing this amount.
