Highlight of Business Operations:

We were incorporated under the General Corporation Law of the State of Maryland on February 14, 2003, primarily for the purpose of investing in and owning net leased industrial and commercial real property and selectively making long-term industrial and commercial mortgage loans. Most of the portfolio of real estate that we currently own is leased to a wide cross section of tenants ranging from small businesses to large public companies, many of which are corporations that do not have publicly-rated debt. We have historically entered into, and intend in the future to enter into, purchase agreements for real estate having triple net leases with terms of approximately 10 to 15 years and built in rental rate increases. Under a triple net lease, the tenant is required to pay all operating, maintenance and insurance costs and real estate taxes with respect to the leased property. We are actively communicating with buyout funds, real estate brokers and other third parties to locate properties for potential acquisition or to provide mortgage financing in an effort to build our portfolio. At June 30, 2010, we owned 64 properties totaling approximately 6.3 million square feet, and had one mortgage loan outstanding. The total gross investment in these acquisitions, including the $10.0 million mortgage loan investment, was approximately $444.5 million at June 30, 2010.

During the six months ended June 30, 2010, we had net borrowings under our line of credit of approximately $3.1 million, with a $36.3 million outstanding principal balance at June 30, 2010. The

On November 19, 2009, we entered into a dealer manager agreement, or the Dealer Manager Agreement, with Halcyon Capital Markets, LLC, or Halcyon, pursuant to which Halcyon will act as our dealer manager in connection with our continuous private offering of up to 3,333,333 shares of our newly designated senior common stock at $15.00 per share. To date, we have issued 10,287 shares of senior common stock. Net proceeds from these sales, after selling commissions and dealer manager fees, were approximately $138,000. The net proceeds from future sales of senior common stock will be used for investment in additional properties and mortgage loans, to repay indebtedness, to potentially purchase shares of our preferred stock on the open market, or other general corporate purposes.
