Compensation of Executive Officers
We currently have no paid employees. Day-to-day management activities are performed by our advisor and related affiliates.
Our executive officers are all employees of our advisor. We do not pay any of these individuals cash compensation for serving in their respective positions. See Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions for a discussion of fees paid to our advisor and other affiliates.
Our executive officers qualify for our Employee Option Plan. However, since the plans inception through December 31, 2005, no option grants have been made to executive officers.

Compensation of Directors
During 2005, we paid each of our independent directors $5,000 per quarter plus $1,000 for each meeting attended. All directors received reimbursement of reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with attendance at meetings of the board of directors. If a director also was an officer of Dividend Capital Trust, no separate compensation was paid for services rendered as a director.
We have also adopted the Independent Director Option Plan. We have reserved 300,000 shares of common stock for future issuance upon the exercise of stock options granted to the independent directors pursuant to our Independent Director Option Plan. As of December 31, 2005, there were 70,000 options outstanding under the Independent Director Option Plan.
During 2005, 2004 and 2003, our independent directors earned compensation in the aggregate amount of $138,000, $152,000 and $22,500, respectively. Approximately $36,000, $36,000 and $15,000 was accrued as of December 31, 2005, 2004 and 2003, respectively, related to compensation to the independent board of directors.
