Winthrop expects that the closing of the purchase of the Properties will take place in September/October, 2013, subject to the customary closing conditions for transactions of this type. Winthrop provided a $25.5 million non-refundable (except in limited circumstances) deposit and the balance of the purchase price is expected to be provided from a combination of cash reserves and new secured financing. In this regard, based on a term sheet provided by a third party lender to Winthrop, it is anticipated that Winthrop will receive mortgage financing in connection with the acquisition of the Properties of $150 million at a rate of LIBOR plus 200 basis points, requiring payments of interest only and with a term of three years with two one-year extensions, which loan is subject to the lender's completion of its due diligence review and credit committee approval.


1 As of July 31, 2013. Highgrove is presently in initial lease-up phase. 2 Purchase Price divided by total apartment and retail rentable square footage.
