MERGER WITH CHAMBERS STREET

On July 1, 2015, the Company announced with Chambers Street a definitive agreement to merge, with the combined company having an expected enterprise value of approximately $5.7 billion. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company’s shareholders will receive 3.1898 shares of Chambers Street common stock for each share of the Company’s common stock they own. Upon closing, Chambers Street’s shareholders will own approximately 56% and the Company’s shareholders will own approximately 44% of the combined company. The merged company will be renamed Gramercy Property Trust and trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “GPT.” The stock-for-stock transaction is expected to be tax-free to shareholders. The merger is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2015.

This combination brings together two complementary portfolios focused on industrial and office real estate, comprising 288 properties and approximately 52 million square feet in major markets throughout the U.S. and Europe. The combined company is expected to have larger size and scale, broader tenant diversification, increased financial flexibility, and a more efficient operating platform to drive growth.

Following the close of the transaction, the combined company also intends to pursue the disposition of certain suburban office properties in order to reduce the level of these holdings to approximately 25% of its total portfolio over the long term. In addition, the combined company expects to continue to be an active acquirer of single-tenant net leases and properties.

COMMON STOCK OFFERING

On April 14, 2015, the Company completed an underwritten public offering of 9,775,000 shares of its common stock, which includes the exercise in full by the underwriters of their option to purchase 1,275,000 additional shares of common stock. The shares of common stock were issued at a public offering price of $27.75 per share and the net proceeds from the offering were approximately $259.3 million. The Company used the net proceeds from the offering to repay outstanding borrowings under its revolving credit facility, which is generally used to fund real estate acquisitions.

PROPERTY ACQUISITIONS & SALES

In the second quarter of 2015, the Company acquired 16 properties in four separate transactions for a total purchase price of approximately $368.6 million (6.6% initial cap rate; 7.6% annualized straight-line cap rate) with a weighted average lease term of approximately 17.6 years. These acquisitions included a sale leaseback transaction with Life Time Fitness for a portfolio of 10 single-tenant net lease assets (“Life Time Fitness Portfolio”) totaling approximately 1.3 million square feet for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $300.5 million.

Subsequent to quarter end, the Company acquired three additional properties for a total purchase price of approximately $100.4 million (7.1% initial cap rate; 7.9% annualized straight-line cap rate) with a weighted average lease term of approximately 11.7 years and assumed existing secured debt totaling approximately $12.8 million with a remaining term of 3.4 years until maturity. The properties consist of an 106,631 square foot cold storage facility located in Vernon, California (Los Angeles MSA) which is 100% leased to a producer of frozen desserts through June 2030; a 255,336 square foot headquarters warehouse located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania leased to a distributor of packaging, paper, equipment and janitorial supplies through April 2026; and a 585,225 square foot bulk warehouse located in Fridley, Minnesota (Minneapolis MSA) leased to a global defense, security and aerospace company through October 2025.

GRAMERCY EUROPEAN PROPERTY FUND

For the second quarter of 2015, the Company contributed $2.0 million to the Gramercy European Property Fund (“the Fund”). In April 2015, the Fund closed its first acquisition, the purchase and sale leaseback of an approximately 430,000 square foot industrial warehouse located in Neuwied, Germany.

GRAMERCY ASSET MANAGEMENT

The Company’s asset and property management business, which operates under the name Gramercy Asset Management, currently manages for third parties approximately $800.0 million of commercial properties throughout the United States and Europe.

In the second quarter 2015, Gramercy Asset Management recognized fee revenues of $4.2 million in property management, asset management, incentive, and administrative fees, as compared to $8.2 million at the end of the prior quarter. The decrease in fees is primarily attributable to additional incentive and disposition fees recognized in the first quarter of 2015 on properties sold in the managed portfolio. The Gramercy Asset Management business generates most of its fee revenues from an asset management agreement with KBS.

As of June 30, 2015, the Company maintained approximately $93.6 million of liquidity at quarter end, as compared to approximately $188.7 million of liquidity reported the prior quarter.

As of June 30, 2015, there were borrowings of $200.0 million outstanding under the term loan (“Term Loan”) and $350.0 million outstanding under the unsecured credit facility (“Credit Facility”).

In May 2015, the Company amended the Credit Facility to bifurcate the revolving loan portion into a $350.0 million U.S. dollar-denominated tranche and a $50.0 million foreign currency-denominated tranche. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company exercised the accordion feature to expand the Term Loan from $200.0 million to $300.0 million and increased the Credit Facility from $400.0 million to $500.0 million.

(1) For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the diluted weighted average calculation, which is the denominator
in diluted earnings per share excludes potentially dilutive securities because they would have been anti-dilutive
during those periods. The denominator for diluted earnings per share, Core FFO per diluted share and AFFO per diluted share
for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 are the same. However, FFO per diluted share for the three months
ended June 30, 2014 does not include potentially dilutive securities, while FFO per diluted share for the six months
ended June 30, 2014, includes potentially dilutive securities.

DISCLAIMERS

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company has used non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC Regulation G in this press release. A reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure can be found on page 11 of this release.

Fund from operations (“FFO”): The revised White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, defines FFO as net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP), excluding impairment write-downs of investments in depreciable real estate and investments in in-substance real estate investments, gains or losses from debt restructurings and sales of depreciable operating properties, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), less distributions to non-controlling interests and gains/losses from discontinued operations and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.

Core FFO and adjusted funds from operations (“AFFO”): Core FFO and AFFO are presented excluding property acquisition costs, other-than-temporary impairments on retained bonds and other one-time charges. AFFO of the Company also excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expense, amortization of above and below market leases, amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of lease inducement costs, non-real estate depreciation and amortization, amortization of free rent received at property acquisition and straight-line rent. The Company believes that Core FFO and AFFO are useful supplemental measures regarding the Company’s operating performances as they provide a more meaningful and consistent comparison of the Company’s operating performance and allows investors to more easily compare the Company’s operating results.

FFO, Core FFO and AFFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), as an indication of our financial performance, or to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it entirely indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. Our calculation of FFO may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.
