The seller is not affiliated with the Company or KBS Capital Advisors LLC, the Company's external advisor. The contractual purchase price of Anchor Centre was $85.1 million plus closing costs. Anchor Centre was built in 1984 and renovated between 2011 and 2012. As of May 22, 2014, Anchor Centre was approximately 79% leased to 27 tenants.

The current weighted-average remaining lease term for the tenants is approximately 5.9 years. The Company funded the purchase of Anchor Centre with proceeds from the Anchor Centre Mortgage Loan (defined below) and proceeds from its ongoing initial public offering. On May 22, 2014, in connection with the acquisition of Anchor Centre, the Buyer entered into a three-year secured mortgage loan with an unaffiliated lender for borrowings of up to $53.2 million secured by Anchor Centre (the "Anchor Centre Mortgage Loan"). At closing, $50.0 million of the loan was funded and the remaining $3.2 million is available for future disbursements to be used for tenant improvements and leasing commissions, subject to certain terms and conditions contained in the loan documents. The Anchor Centre Mortgage Loan matures on June 1, 2017, with three one-year extension options, subject to certain terms and conditions contained in the loan documents. The Anchor Centre Mortgage Loan bears interest at a floating rate of 150 basis points over one-month LIBOR. Monthly payments are initially interest-only. Monthly payments during the second and third extension periods would consist of principal and interest, with monthly principal payments of $50,365.

KBS REIT Properties III, LLC ("REIT Properties III"), the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, is providing a limited guaranty of the Anchor Centre Mortgage Loan with respect to certain potential fees, costs, expenses, losses or damages incurred or suffered by the lender as a result of certain intentional actions committed by the Buyer or REIT Properties III in violation of the loan documents.
