KBS Real Estate Investment Trust II Declares 13th Distribution From 2012 Operations

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/04/13 -- The KBS Real Estate Investment Trust II, Inc. (KBS REIT II) Board of Directors has authorized a special distribution of 5.4 cents(1) per share of common stock to stockholders of record as of the close of business today -- Monday, February 4, 2013.

The distribution, scheduled to be paid on Friday, February 15, 2013, will be the thirteenth distribution payment related to operations from the 2012 calendar year. The amount is based on one-twelfth of the same annualized rate of 6.5% on the $10 purchase price that was paid out monthly throughout last year.

This distribution is possible due to excess modified funds from operations (MFFO)(2) generated by the REIT for the 2012 calendar year above the amount of previously declared distributions.

"KBS REIT II continues to generate positive performance and create value for stockholders," said Charles Schreiber, Jr., CEO, KBS REIT II. "I believe the portfolio remains well positioned and we continue to strive to identify additional opportunities for improvement in cash flow and values."

KBS REIT II is a public non-traded Real Estate Investment Trust that closed its initial public offering on December 31, 2010. KBS REIT II uses a "hybrid" real estate investment strategy by acting as both an owner of real property and as a lender. KBS REIT II has acquired a diversified blend of Class A office and industrial properties in major metropolitan markets, as well as real estate-related loans.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
