Liberty Property Trust
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
September 30, 2007
Note 1: Organization and Basis of Presentation
Organization
Liberty Property Trust (the “Trust”) is a self-administered and self-managed Maryland real estate investment trust (a “REIT”). Substantially all of the Trust’s assets are owned directly or indirectly, and substantially all of the Trust’s operations are conducted directly or indirectly, by Liberty Property Limited Partnership (the “Operating Partnership” and, together with the Trust and their consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”). The Trust is the sole general partner and also a limited partner of the Operating Partnership, owning 95.6% of the common equity of the Operating Partnership at September 30, 2007. The Company provides leasing, property management, development, acquisition and other tenant-related services for a portfolio of industrial and office properties that are located within the United States and the United Kingdom. See a description of the Company’s markets in Note 2 to the Company’s financial statements.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Trust and its subsidiaries, including the Operating Partnership, have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of the Trust and the Operating Partnership for the year ended December 31, 2006. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements for these interim periods have been included. The results of interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be obtained for a full fiscal year. Certain amounts from prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.
Income per Common Share
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted income per common share (in thousands except per share amounts):

Share-Based Compensation
At September 30, 2007, the Company had a share-based employee compensation plan (the “Plan”). The Plan provides that grants may be made in various forms including options and restricted shares. The Company accounts for share-based compensation in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 123(R), “Share-Based Payment” (“SFAS No. 123(R)”).
The Company has authorized the grant of options under the Plan to executive officers, other key employees, non-employee trustees and consultants. All options granted have 10-year terms and most options vest over a three-year period, with options to purchase up to 20% of the shares exercisable after the first anniversary, up to 50% after the second anniversary and up to 100% after the third anniversary of the date of grant.
Restricted share grants made under the Plan are valued at the grant date fair value, which is the market price of the underlying common shares, and vest ratably over a five-year period beginning with the first anniversary of the date of grant.
During the three months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006, the Company recognized $1.3 million and $1.1 million of share-based compensation expense, respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006, the Company recognized $6.7 million and $5.2 million of share-based compensation expense, respectively.
Foreign Currency Translation
The functional currency of the Company’s United Kingdom operations is pounds sterling. The Company translates the financial statements for the United Kingdom operations into US dollars. Gains and losses resulting from this translation do not impact the results of operations and are included in accumulated other comprehensive income as a separate component of shareholders’ equity. Accumulated other comprehensive income consists solely of the translation adjustments described. Other comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 was $1.8 million and $4.0 million, respectively, as compared to $1.3 million and $6.9 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2006. Upon sale or upon complete or substantially complete liquidation of a foreign investment, the gain or loss on the sale will include the cumulative translation adjustments that have been previously recorded in accumulated other comprehensive income.

Note 2: Segment Information
The Company operates its portfolio of properties within the United States and the United Kingdom as fully detailed below. The Company reviews the performance of the portfolio on a geographical basis. As such, the following regions are considered the Company’s reportable segments:
     
Reportable Segments   Markets
Delaware Valley
  Southeastern Pennsylvania; New Jersey
Midwest
  Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania; Michigan; Minnesota; Milwaukee; Chicago
Mid-Atlantic
  Maryland; Piedmont Triad, NC; Greenville, SC; Richmond; Virginia Beach
Florida
  Jacksonville; Orlando; Boca Raton; Tampa; Texas
Arizona
  Phoenix
United Kingdom
  County of Kent
The Company began to report the results of the Arizona segment during the three months ended March 31, 2007. As required by SFAS No. 131 (“SFAS No. 131”) “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information,” consolidated financial statements issued by the Company in the future will reflect modifications to the Company’s reportable segments resulting from the change described above, including reclassification of all comparative prior period segment information.
Gross investment in operating real estate for the Arizona segment increased from $31.7 million at December 31, 2006 to $182.3 million at September 30, 2007 due to acquisitions throughout 2007.
The Company’s reportable segments are distinct business units which are each managed separately in order to concentrate market knowledge within a geographic area. Within these reportable segments, the Company derives its revenues from its two product types: industrial properties and office properties.
The Company evaluates the performance of the reportable segments based on property level operating income, which is calculated as rental revenue and operating expense reimbursement less rental property expenses and real estate taxes. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those for the Company on a consolidated basis. The operating information by segment is as follows (in thousands):

Twenty-five properties totaling 925,000 square feet located in the Company’s Midwest segment were considered to be held for sale as of September 30, 2007.
Interest expense is allocated to discontinued operations as permitted under Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) Issue 87-24, “Allocation of Interest to Discontinued Operations,” and such interest expense has been included in computing income from discontinued operations. The allocation of interest expense to discontinued operations was based on the ratio of net assets sold (without continuing involvement) or held for sale to the sum of total net assets plus consolidated debt.

Note 4: Joint Ventures
Liberty/Commerz 1701 JFK Boulevard, LP
On April 13, 2006, the Company entered into a joint venture pursuant to which it sold an 80% interest in the equity of Comcast Center, a 1.25 million square foot office tower the Company is developing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The transaction valued the property at $512 million. In connection with the transaction, the joint venture obtained a $324 million forward loan commitment at a rate of 6.15% assuming the loan closes in March 2008. The Company can extend the funding for a period of up to six months. In addition to retaining a 20% interest, the Company will receive leasing and property management fees and may receive a promoted interest if certain return thresholds are met.
Under the terms of the joint venture arrangement, the Company is obligated to complete development of the building, the estimated cost of which is approximately $495 million, and is also obligated to complete the initial lease up of the property. Based upon the updated leasing schedule as of September 30, 2007, the Company may have to fund $3.5 million in rent support. The criteria for sale recognition in accordance with SFAS No. 66 “Accounting for the Sale of Real Estate” have not been met and this transaction is accounted for as a financing arrangement.
Liberty Illinois, LP
On April 25, 2006, the Company entered into a joint venture selling a 75% equity interest in six distribution buildings totaling 2.1 million square feet and 104 acres of developable land.

In addition to having a 20% interest, the Company will receive leasing and property management fees and may receive a promoted interest if certain return thresholds are met.
Note 5: Unsecured Notes
In August 2007, the Company repaid $100 million of 7.25% senior unsecured notes.
In September 2007, the Company issued $300 million of 6.625% senior unsecured notes maturing on October 1, 2017. The proceeds from this issuance were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s unsecured credit facility and for general corporate purposes. Amounts repaid under the credit facility were subsequently drawn to pay a portion of the cash merger consideration for the purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership – See Note 9: Subsequent Events.
Note 6: Preferred Units
On June 15, 2007, the Company redeemed for $23.7 million its outstanding 7.625% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Units. The redemption resulted in a $0.7 million write off of Series D issuance costs which is reflected in minority interest in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.
On August 21, 2007, the Company raised $100.0 million through the issuance in a private placement of 7.40% Series H Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Units. The proceeds from this offering were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s unsecured credit facility and for general corporate purposes. Amounts repaid under the credit facility were subsequently drawn to pay a portion of the cash merger consideration for the purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership –See Note 9: Subsequent Events.
Note 7: Accelerated Share Repurchase
On June 25, 2007, the Company initiated a $50.0 million accelerated share repurchase program. Purchases of 776,000, 301,000 and 114,000 shares were made on June 27, 2007, July 12, 2007, and August 20, 2007, respectively.

Note 8: Recently Issued Accounting Standards
SFAS No. 157
In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS No. 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for consistently measuring fair value under US GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2008, and the provisions of SFAS No. 157 will be applied prospectively as of that date. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this statement will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.
SFAS No. 159
In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (“SFAS No. 159”). SFAS No. 159 provides companies with an option to report selected financial assets and liabilities at fair value and establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between companies that choose different measurement attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. SFAS No. 159 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this statement will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.
FIN 48
In July 2006, the FASB issued FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” (“FIN 48”). FIN 48 is an interpretation of SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes,” and it seeks to reduce the diversity in practice associated with certain aspects of measurement and recognition in accounting for income taxes. In addition, FIN 48 provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, and accounting in interim periods and requires expanded disclosure with respect to the uncertainty in income taxes.
The Company adopted the provisions of FIN 48 on January 1, 2007. As a result of the implementation of FIN 48, no uncertain tax positions were identified which would result in the recording of a liability for unrecognized tax benefits, and correspondingly no benefit recognition was identified that would affect the effective tax rate. Additionally, there are no possibly significant unrecognized tax benefits which are reasonably expected to occur within the next 12 months. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest accrued related to unrecognized benefits in interest expense and penalties in other expense. There are no interest and penalties deducted in the current period and no interest and penalties accrued at September 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively.
The Company and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various states and the United Kingdom. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state, and local, or United Kingdom examinations by tax authorities for years before 2002.
Note 9: Subsequent Events
On October 4, 2007, the Company completed its purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership, (together, “Republic”). The acquisition of Republic was completed through the merger of Republic with a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the merger of Republic’s operating partnership with the Operating Partnership. In the mergers, each holder of the former common shares of Republic and partnership units of its operating partnership was paid $14.70 in cash, without interest.
Concurrently, the Company formed a joint venture with New York State Common Retirement Fund to own and manage the Republic portfolio. The joint venture, in which the Company holds a 25% interest, purchased the Republic assets for $900 million, which includes the assumption of $287.8 million in debt. The joint venture owns 2.6 million square feet of office properties in the Greater Washington, DC area. The Republic portfolio consists of 13 operating properties consisting of 24 office buildings and a redevelopment property which, upon completion, is expected to comprise 176,000 square feet of office space. The joint venture is eventually expected to grow to approximately $2.2 billion through the acquisition and development of additional properties in the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia markets.
The cost of the Republic transaction to the Company, including the merger consideration and related transaction expenses, is expected to exceed the purchase price of $900 million that the joint venture paid for the Republic properties by an amount in the range of $20 million to $25 million.

Organization
Liberty Property Trust (“the Trust”) is a self-administered and self-managed Maryland real estate investment trust (a “REIT”). Substantially all of the Trust’s assets are owned directly or indirectly, and substantially all of the Trust’s operations are conducted directly or indirectly, by its subsidiary, Liberty Property Limited Partnership, a Pennsylvania limited partnership, (the “Operating Partnership” and, together with the Trust and their consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”). The Trust is the sole general partner and also a limited partner of the Operating Partnership, owning 95.6% of the common equity of the Operating Partnership at September 30, 2007. The Company provides leasing, property management, development, acquisition and other tenant-related services for a portfolio of industrial and office properties that are located within the United States and the United Kingdom. See a description of the Company’s markets in Note 2 to the Company’s financial statements.
Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of the Operating Partnership and its subsidiaries have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Annual Report on Form 10-K of the Trust and the Operating Partnership for the year ended December 31, 2006. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the financial statements for these interim periods have been included. The results of interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be obtained for a full fiscal year. Certain amounts from prior periods have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation.

Foreign Currency Translation
The functional currency of the Company’s United Kingdom operations is pounds sterling. The Company translates the financial statements for the United Kingdom operations into US dollars. Gains and losses resulting from this translation do not impact the results of operations and are included in general partner’s equity – common units. Other comprehensive income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 was $1.8 million and $4.0 million, respectively, as compared to $1.3 million and $6.9 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2006. Upon sale or upon complete or substantially complete liquidation of a foreign investment, the gain or loss on the sale will include the cumulative translation adjustments, which equaled $24.3 million and $20.3 million at September 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively, that have been previously recorded in general partner’s equity – common units.

Note 2: Segment Information
The Company operates its portfolio of properties within the United States and the United Kingdom as fully detailed below. The Company reviews the performance of the portfolio on a geographical basis. As such, the following regions are considered the Company’s reportable segments:
     
Reportable Segments   Markets
Delaware Valley
  Southeastern Pennsylvania; New Jersey
Midwest
  Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania; Michigan; Minnesota; Milwaukee; Chicago
Mid-Atlantic
  Maryland; Piedmont Triad, NC; Greenville, SC; Richmond; Virginia Beach
Florida
  Jacksonville; Orlando; Boca Raton; Tampa; Texas
Arizona
  Phoenix
United Kingdom
  County of Kent
The Company began to report the results of the Arizona segment during the three months ended March 31, 2007. As required by SFAS No. 131 (“SFAS No. 131”) “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information,” consolidated financial statements issued by the Company in the future will reflect modifications to the Company’s reportable segments resulting from the change described above including reclassification of all comparative prior period segment information.
Gross investment in operating real estate for the Arizona segment increased from $31.7 million at December 31, 2006 to $182.3 million at September 30, 2007 due to acquisitions throughout 2007.
The Company’s reportable segments are distinct business units which are each managed separately in order to concentrate market knowledge within a geographic area. Within these reportable segments, the Company derives its revenues from its two product types: industrial properties and office properties.
The Company evaluates the performance of the reportable segments based on property level operating income, which is calculated as rental revenue and operating expense reimbursement less rental property expenses and real estate taxes. The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those for the Company on a consolidated basis. The operating information for the Operating Partnership by segment is as follows (in thousands):

Note 3: SFAS No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”
In accordance with SFAS No. 144, the operating results and gain/(loss) on the disposition of operating real estate for properties sold and held for sale are reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of operations as discontinued operations. Prior period financial statements have been adjusted for discontinued operations. The proceeds from dispositions of operating properties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 were $93.1 million and $275.0 million, respectively, as compared to $31.1 million and $289.3 million, respectively, for the same periods in 2006.
Below is a summary of the results of operations for the properties held for sale and disposed of through the respective disposition dates (in thousands):

Note 4: Joint Ventures
Liberty/Commerz 1701 JFK Boulevard, LP
On April 13, 2006, the Company entered into a joint venture pursuant to which it sold an 80% interest in the equity of Comcast Center, a 1.25 million square foot office tower the Company is developing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The transaction valued the property at $512 million. In connection with the transaction, the joint venture obtained a $324 million forward loan commitment at a rate of 6.15% assuming the loan closes in March 2008. The Company can extend the funding for a period of up to six months. In addition to retaining a 20% interest, the Company will receive leasing and property management fees and may receive a promoted interest if certain return thresholds are met.
Under the terms of the joint venture arrangement, the Company is obligated to complete development of the building, the estimated cost of which is approximately $495 million, and is also obligated to complete the initial lease up of the property. Based upon the updated leasing schedule as of September 30, 2007, the Company may have to fund $3.5 million in rent support. The criteria for sale recognition in accordance with SFAS No. 66 “Accounting for the Sale of Real Estate” have not been met and this transaction is accounted for a financing arrangement.
Liberty Illinois, LP
On April 25, 2006, the Company entered into a joint venture selling a 75% equity interest in six distribution buildings totaling 2.1 million square feet and 104 acres of developable land. The joint venture valued the buildings and land at $125 million. The Company retained a 25% ownership interest in the joint venture, receives development, leasing and property management fees, and may receive a promoted interest if certain return thresholds are met.
Blythe Valley JV Sarl
On September 10, 2007, the Company entered into a joint venture to acquire Blythe Valley Park, West Midlands, UK for $325 million. The park consists of 491,000 square feet of office space in 14 buildings and 98 acres of developable land. In addition to having a 20% interest, the Company will receive leasing and property management fees and may receive a promoted interest if certain return thresholds are met.
Note 5: Unsecured Notes
In August 2007, the Company repaid $100 million of 7.25% senior unsecured notes.
In September 2007, the Company issued $300 million of 6.625% senior unsecured notes maturing on October 1, 2017. The proceeds from this issuance were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s unsecured credit facility and for general corporate purposes. Amounts repaid under the credit facility were subsequently drawn to pay a portion of the cash merger consideration for the purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership – See Note 9: Subsequent Events.
Note 6: Preferred Units
On June 15, 2007, the Company redeemed for $23.7 million its outstanding 7.625% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Units. The redemption resulted in a $0.7 million write off of Series D issuance costs.
On August 21, 2007, the Company raised $100.0 million through the issuance in a private placement of 7.40% Series H Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Units. The proceeds from this offering were used to repay borrowings under the Company’s unsecured credit facility and for general corporate purposes. Amounts repaid under the credit facility were subsequently drawn to pay a portion of the cash merger consideration for the purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership –See Note 8: Subsequent Events.
Note 7: Recently Issued Accounting Standards
SFAS No. 157
In September 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS No. 157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for consistently measuring fair value under US GAAP and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS No. 157 is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2008, and the provisions of SFAS No. 157 will be applied prospectively as of that date. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this statement will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.

SFAS No. 159
In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities” (“SFAS No. 159”). SFAS No. 159 provides companies with an option to report selected financial assets and liabilities at fair value and establishes presentation and disclosure requirements designed to facilitate comparisons between companies that choose different measurements attributes for similar types of assets and liabilities. SFAS No. 159 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this statement will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.
FIN 48
In July 2006, the FASB issued FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” (“FIN 48”). FIN 48 is an interpretation of SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes,” and it seeks to reduce the diversity in practice associated with certain aspects of measurement and recognition in accounting for income taxes. In addition, FIN 48 provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, and accounting in interim periods and requires expanded disclosure with respect to the uncertainty in income taxes.
The Company adopted the provisions of FIN 48 on January 1, 2007. As a result of the implementation of FIN 48, no uncertain tax positions were identified which would result in the recording of a liability for unrecognized tax benefits, and correspondingly no benefit recognition was identified that would affect the effective tax rate. Additionally, there are no possibly significant unrecognized tax benefits which are reasonably expected to occur within the next 12 months. The Company’s policy is to recognize interest accrued related to unrecognized benefits in interest expense and penalties in other expense. There are no interest and penalties deducted in the current period and no interest and penalties accrued at September 30, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively.
The Company and its subsidiaries file income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, various states and the United Kingdom. With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state, and local, or United Kingdom examinations by tax authorities for years before 2002.
Note 8: Subsequent Events
On October 4, 2007, the Company completed its purchase of Republic Property Trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership, (together, “Republic”). The acquisition of Republic was completed through the merger of Republic with a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the merger of Republic’s operating partnership with the Operating Partnership. In the mergers, each holder of the former common shares of Republic and partnership units of its operating partnership was paid $14.70 in cash, without interest.
Concurrently, the Company formed a joint venture with New York State Common Retirement Fund to own and manage the Republic portfolio. The joint venture, in which the Company holds a 25% interest, purchased the Republic assets for $900 million, which includes the assumption of $287.8 million in debt. The joint venture owns 2.6 million square feet of office properties in the Greater Washington, DC area. The Republic portfolio consists of 13 operating properties consisting of 24 office buildings and a redevelopment property which, upon completion, is expected to comprise 176,000 square feet of office space. The joint venture is eventually expected to grow to approximately $2.2 billion through the acquisition and development of additional properties in the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia markets.
The cost of the Republic transaction to the Company, including the merger consideration and related transaction expenses, is expected to exceed the purchase price of $900 million that the joint venture paid for the Republic properties by an amount in the range of $20 million to $25 million.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
OVERVIEW
Liberty Property Trust (the “Trust”) is a self-administered and self-managed Maryland real estate investment trust (“REIT”). Substantially all of the Trust’s assets are owned directly or indirectly, and substantially all of the Trust’s operations are conducted directly or indirectly, by its subsidiary, Liberty Property Limited Partnership, a Pennsylvania limited partnership (the “Operating Partnership” and, collectively with the Trust and their consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company”).
As of September 30, 2007, the Company owned and operated 371 industrial and 302 office properties (the “Wholly Owned Properties in Operation”) totaling 61.5 million square feet. In addition, as of September 30, 2007, the Company owned 27 properties under development which when completed will comprise 5.2 million square feet (the “Wholly Owned Properties under Development”) and 1,300 acres of developable land, substantially all of which is zoned for commercial use. Additionally, the Company had an ownership interest, through unconsolidated joint ventures, in 44 industrial and 23 office properties comprising 8.7 million square feet, (the “JV Properties in Operation” and, together with the Wholly Owned Properties in Operation, the “Properties in Operation”), four development properties comprising 690,000 square feet (the “JV Properties under Development” and together with the Wholly Owned Properties under Development, the “Properties under Development”) and 478 acres of developable land, substantially all of which is zoned for commercial use.
The Company focuses on creating value for shareholders and increasing profitability and cash flow. With respect to its Properties in Operation, the Company endeavors to maintain high occupancy levels while increasing rental rates. The Company pursues development opportunities that it believes will create value and yield acceptable returns. The Company also acquires properties that it believes will create long-term value, and disposes of properties that no longer fit within the Company’s strategic objectives or in situations where it can optimize cash proceeds. The Company’s operating results depend primarily upon income from rental operations and are substantially influenced by rental demand for the Properties in Operation.
Rental demand for the Properties in Operation generally improved during the nine months ended September 30, 2007, as compared to 2006. Although in some markets the Company continues to experience market conditions characterized by an oversupply of leaseable space and/or soft demand, the Company believes that the majority of its markets are recovering from several years of a generally slow real estate economy. Rental rates in many of the Company’s markets have stabilized or improved. The Company successfully leased 3.5 million square feet during the three months ended September 30, 2007 and attained occupancy of 92.9% for the Wholly Owned Properties in Operation and 93.0% for the Joint Venture Properties in Operation for a combined occupancy of 92.9% for the Properties in Operation as of that date. The Company believes that straight line rents on renewal and replacement leases for 2008 will on average be 0% to 2% greater than rents on expiring leases, notwithstanding selected decreases. Furthermore, the Company believes that the average occupancy for its Properties in Operation will not decrease or increase by more than 1% for 2008 compared to 2007.
WHOLLY OWNED CAPITAL ACTIVITY
Acquisitions
During the third quarter market conditions for acquisitions have been unsettled because of adverse events in the housing and CMBS markets. However, in the first half of 2007 conditions for the acquisition of properties were very competitive. For 2007, the Company believes that wholly owned property acquisitions will be in the $300 million to $400 million range. During the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company acquired five properties representing 428,000 square feet for a Total Investment, as defined below, of $88.9 million. From January 1, 2007 to September 30, 2007, the Company acquired 19 properties representing 2.4 million square feet for a Total Investment of $289.9 million. These acquisitions generally served to increase the Company’s presence or balance the product mix in markets the Company believes to have significant potential. The properties acquired in the nine months ended September 30, 2007 were primarily located in Phoenix (970,000 square feet) and Houston (900,000 square feet). “Total Investment” for a property is defined as the property’s purchase price plus closing costs and management’s estimate, as determined at the time of acquisition, of the cost of necessary building improvements in the case of acquisitions, or land costs and land and building improvement costs in the case of development projects, and, where appropriate, other development costs and carrying costs. For 2008, the Company believes that wholly owned property acquisitions will be in the $100 million to $200 million range and that, similar to 2007, certain of the acquired properties will be either vacant or underleased.

Dispositions
During the third quarter market conditions for dispositions have been unsettled because of adverse events in the housing and CMBS markets. However, in the first half of 2007 the real estate disposition market was very strong. The Company anticipates that wholly owned disposition activity will be in the $350 million to $450 million range for 2007. Disposition activity allows the Company to (1) reduce its holdings in certain markets and product types within a market; (2) lower the average age of the portfolio; and (3) take advantage of favorable market conditions to optimize the cash proceeds from the sale of certain assets. During the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company realized proceeds of $94.6 million from the sale of eight operating properties representing 1.1 million square feet and two acres of land. From January 1, 2007 to September 30, 2007, the Company realized proceeds of $289.9 million from the sale of 37 operating properties representing 3.8 million square feet and 151 acres of land. A substantial portion of the properties sold during these periods were in the Michigan market. For 2008, the Company believes that it will dispose of $250 million to $350 million of operating properties.
Development
The Company continues to pursue development opportunities and the Company believes that during 2007 it will bring into service from its development pipeline (excluding the Comcast Center, discussed below) approximately $380 million of Total Investment in operating real estate. During the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company brought into service four Wholly Owned Properties under Development representing 878,000 square feet and a Total Investment of $73.0 million, and initiated $87.8 million in real estate development. During the nine months ended September 30, 2007, the Company brought into service 18 Wholly Owned Properties under Development representing 3.3 million square feet and a Total Investment of $262.1 million, and initiated $204.2 million in real estate development. As of September 30, 2007, the projected Total Investment of the Wholly Owned Properties under Development (excluding the Comcast Center) was $404.5 million. For 2008, the Company believes that it will bring into service from its development pipeline (excluding the Comcast Center) approximately $200 million to $300 million of Total Investment in operating real estate.
Comcast Center Activity
During the three months ended September 30, 2007, the Company brought into service 351,000 square feet of the Comcast Center equaling $137.7 million of Total Investment. The balance of the Comcast Center is scheduled to be brought into service during the fourth quarter of 2007 and the first and second quarters of 2008. The projected Total Investment at September 30, 2007 for the remainder of the Comcast Center to be brought into service is $357.3 million. In April 2006, the Company entered into a joint venture, whereby the Company sold an 80% interest in the equity of the Comcast Center. The terms of the joint venture obligate the Company to complete the development of the building and consequently this development is treated as a Wholly Owned Property under Development. In 2008, the Company expects to effectuate sale treatment of the Comcast Center to the unconsolidated joint venture –See Note 4 to the Company’s financial statements.
JOINT VENTURE CAPITAL ACTIVITY
The Company periodically enters into joint venture relationships in connection with the execution of its real estate operating strategy.
Acquisitions
During the three months ended September 30, 2007, joint ventures in which the Company held an ownership interest acquired two properties representing 745,000 square feet for a Total Investment of $44.2 million. During the nine months ended September 30, 2007, joint ventures in which the Company held an ownership interest acquired four properties representing 1.2 million square feet for a Total Investment of $70.6 million. The Company believes that joint ventures in which it holds an ownership interest will acquire properties in the $1.2 billion to $1.3 billion range in 2007. Such acquisitions include the recent formation of two joint ventures, the Blythe Valley JV Sarl and the Liberty Washington, LP. For 2008, the Company believes that joint venture property acquisitions will be in the $200 million to $250 million range.
Dispositions
During 2007, the joint ventures in which the Company held an interest did not dispose of any properties and does not anticipate doing so for the remainder of 2007.

Development
For 2007, the Company expects joint ventures in which it holds an ownership interest to bring into service from their development pipeline $55 million of Total Investment in operating properties. During the three months ended September 30, 2007, there were no development properties brought into service by unconsolidated joint ventures. During the nine months ended September 30, 2007, unconsolidated joint ventures brought into service two development properties representing 796,000 square feet and a Total Investment of $38.5 million and initiated $16.4 million in real estate development. As of September 30, 2007, the projected Total Investment of Joint Venture Properties under Development was $60.9 million. For 2008, the Company expects joint ventures in which it holds an ownership interest to bring into service $50 million to $70 million of Total Investment in operating properties.
Blythe Valley JV Sarl
In September 2007, a newly formed joint venture in which the Company holds a 20% interest acquired the Blythe Valley Park for $325 million. The park consists of 491,000 square feet of office space and 98 acres of developable land and is located in close proximity to the city of Birmingham, UK.
Liberty Washington, LP
On October 4, 2007, the Company completed its purchase of Republic Property Trust, a Maryland real estate investment trust and Republic Property Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership and Republic’s operating partnership (together, “Republic”). The acquisition of Republic was completed through the merger of Republic with a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the merger of Republic’s operating partnership with the Company’s operating partnership. In the mergers, each holder of the former common shares of Republic and partnership units of its operating partnership was paid $14.70 in cash, without interest.
Concurrently, the Company formed a joint venture with New York State Common Retirement Fund to own and manage the Republic portfolio. The joint venture, in which the Company holds a 25% interest, purchased the Republic assets for $900 million. The joint venture is eventually expected to grow to approximately $2.2 billion through the acquisition and development of additional properties in the Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia markets.

Forward-Looking Statements
When used throughout this report, the words “believes,” “anticipates” and “expects” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements indicate that assumptions have been used that are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual financial results or management plans and objectives to differ materially from those projected or expressed herein, including: the effect of national and regional economic conditions; rental demand; the Company’s ability to identify, and enter into agreements with suitable joint venture partners in situations where it believes such arrangements are advantageous; the Company’s ability to identify and secure additional properties and sites, both for itself and the joint ventures to which it is a party, that meet its criteria for acquisition or development; the availability and cost of capital; the effect of prevailing market interest rates; and other risks described from time to time in the Company’s filings with the SEC. Given these uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Refer to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006 for a discussion of critical accounting policies which include capitalized costs, revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts and impairment of real estate and intangibles. During the three months ended September 30, 2007, there were no material changes to these policies.
Results of Operations
The following discussion is based on the consolidated financial statements of the Company. It compares the results of operations of the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 with the results of operations of the Company for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006. As a result of the varying levels of development, acquisition and disposition activities by the Company in 2007 and 2006, the overall operating results of the Company during such periods are not directly comparable. However, certain data, including the Same Store comparison, do lend themselves to direct comparison.
This information should be read in conjunction with the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and notes included elsewhere in this report.
Comparison of Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2007 to Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2006
Overview
The Company’s average gross investment in operating real estate owned for the three months ended September 30, 2007 increased to $4,710.8 million from $3,913.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 increased to $4,476.4 million from $3,832.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. These increases in operating real estate resulted in increases in rental revenue, operating expense reimbursement, rental property operating expenses, real estate taxes, and depreciation and amortization expense.

Total operating revenue increased to $177.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $155.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and increased to $513.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $457.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The $22.1 million increase during the three months ended September 30, 2007 compared to the same period in 2006 was primarily due to the increase in investment in operating real estate, the increase in operating revenue from the Same Store group of properties, discussed below, and an increase in “Termination Fees,” which totaled $1.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to $0.5 million for the same period in 2006. The $55.6 million increase during the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared to the same period in 2006 was primarily due to the increase in investment in operating real estate and the increase in operating revenue from the Same Store group of properties, discussed below. This increase was partially offset by a decrease in “Termination Fees,” which totaled $3.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to $5.4 million for the same period in 2006. Termination Fees are fees that the Company agrees to accept in consideration for permitting certain tenants to terminate their leases prior to the contractual expiration date. Termination Fees are included in rental revenue.
Segments
The Company evaluates the performance of the Properties in Operation by reportable segment (see Note 2 to the Company’s financial statements for reconciliation to net income). The following table identifies changes in reportable segments (dollars in thousands):

(1)   Results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006 include a non-recurring bankruptcy settlement. The decrease related to the settlement in 2007 was partially offset in the three months ended September 2007 and completely offset in the nine months ending September 30, 2007 by an increase in average gross investment in operating real estate.
 
(2)   The increases for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 versus the three and nine months ended September 30, 2006 are primarily due to an increase in average gross investment in operating real estate and increased occupancy during 2007.

Same Store
Property level operating income, exclusive of Termination Fees, for the Same Store properties increased to $105.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $104.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 on a straight line basis (which recognizes rental revenue evenly over the life of the lease) and increased to $104.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $102.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 on a cash basis. These increases of 0.5% and 1.3%, respectively, are primarily due to an increase in average rent per square foot for the Same Store properties, partially offset by the recovery of a $2.0 million tenant bankruptcy settlement in 2006.

Table of Contents

Property level operating income, exclusive of Termination Fees, for the Same Store properties increased to $313.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $306.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 on a straight line basis and increased to $311.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $301.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006 on a cash basis. These increases of 2.3% and 3.2%, respectively, are primarily due to an increase in occupancy and an increase in average rent per square foot for the Same Store properties, partially offset by the recovery of a $2.0 million tenant bankruptcy settlement in 2006.
Management generally considers the performance of the Same Store properties to be a useful financial performance measure because the results are directly comparable from period to period. Management further believes that the performance comparison should exclude Termination Fees since they are more event specific and are not representative of ordinary performance results. In addition, Same Store property level operating income exclusive of Termination Fees is considered by management to be a more reliable indicator of the portfolio’s baseline performance. The Same Store properties consist of the 594 properties totaling approximately 51.7 million square feet owned since January 1, 2006.
Set forth below is a schedule comparing the property level operating income, on a straight line basis and on a cash basis, for the Same Store properties for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006. Same Store property level operating income is a non-GAAP measure and does not represent income before property dispositions, income taxes, minority interest and equity in (loss) earnings of unconsolidated joint ventures because it does not reflect the consolidated operations of the Company. Investors should review Same Store results, along with Funds from operations (see “Liquidity and Capital Resources” section), GAAP net income and cash flow from operating activities, investing activities and financing activities when trying to understand the Company’s operating performance. Also, set forth below is a reconciliation of Same Store property level operating income to net income (in thousands).

General and Administrative
General and administrative expenses increased to $13.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $12.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and increased to $38.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $33.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. These increases were primarily due to increases in costs related to cancelled projects and compensation expense for real estate personnel necessitated by the competitive real estate market and increases in personnel consistent with the size and complexity of the Company.
Depreciation and Amortization
Depreciation and amortization increased to $40.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $34.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and increased to $114.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $100.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. These increases were primarily due to the increase in gross investment in operating real estate during the respective periods and particularly the increased investment in tenant improvement costs, which are amortized over a shorter period than buildings.
Interest Expense
Interest expense increased to $33.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $28.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and increased to $89.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $83.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The average debt outstanding for the respective periods was $2,721.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to $2,232.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and $2,592.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 as compared to $2,232.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. Interest costs for the three months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 in the amount of $12.8 million and $7.6 million, respectively, and interest costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 in the amounts of $36.6 million and $21.0 million, respectively, were capitalized. The increase in capitalized interest costs was primarily due to the increased investment in Wholly Owned Properties under Development. The effect of the increase in the average debt outstanding was partially offset by the increase in capitalized interest costs and decreases in the weighted average interest rates for the periods to 6.49% for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from 6.70% for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and to 6.50% for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from 6.66% for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. Interest expense allocated to discontinued operations for the three months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 was $0.7 million and $2.6 million, respectively, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 and 2006 was $3.7 million and $9.9 million, respectively. The decrease in interest allocated to discontinued operations is due to the level of dispositions in 2007 versus 2006.
Other
Costs directly related to the development of Properties under Development and land being readied for development are capitalized. Capitalized development costs include interest, development-related salaries, property taxes, insurance and other directly identifiable costs incurred during the period of development. Capitalized development-related salaries and benefits historically represent approximately 1-2% of the cost of developed properties.
Gain on property dispositions increased to a gain of $190,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2007 compared to a loss of $104,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2006; and decreased to a gain of $1.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared to a gain of $17.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2006 was the result of the gain on sale of properties to a joint venture in which the Company has an ownership interest in the nine months ended September 30, 2006.

Income from discontinued operations decreased to $5.2 million from $14.0 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2007 compared to the three month period ended September 30, 2006 and decreased to $28.3 million from $95.2 million for the nine month period ended September 30, 2007 compared to the nine month period ended September 30, 2006. The decrease for the three month period ended September 30, 2007 is primarily due to lower operating income and the decrease in gains recognized on sales which were $4.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 compared to $11.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006. The decrease for the nine month period ended September 30, 2007 is primarily due to lower operating income and the decrease in gains recognized on sales which were $24.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared to $87.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006.
As a result of the foregoing, the Company’s net income decreased to $37.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 from $46.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2006 and decreased to $129.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $205.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
As of September 30, 2007, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $67.2 million, including $31.2 million in restricted cash.
Net cash flow provided by operating activities increased to $295.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $219.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. This $75.7 million increase was due to fluctuations in operating assets and liabilities during the respective periods. Net cash flow provided by operations is the primary source of liquidity to fund distributions to shareholders and for the recurring capital expenditures and leasing transaction costs for the Company’s Wholly Owned Properties in Operation.
Net cash used in investing activities increased to $517.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 from $170.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. This $347.2 million change primarily resulted from an increase in property acquisitions, a decrease in net proceeds from the disposition of properties/land and an increase in investment in development in progress and land held for development.
Net cash provided by financing activities was $203.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2007 compared to $86.5 million used in financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2006. This $289.5 million change was primarily due to the issuance of $100 million of preferred units, $300 million of senior unsecured notes and a $150 million term loan in 2007, partially offset by the purchase of $50 million of treasury shares, the redemption of $24 million of preferred units, the repayment of $100 million of senior unsecured notes and the repayment of the $150 million term loan in 2007. Net cash provided by or used in financing activities includes proceeds from the issuance of equity and debt, net of debt repayments and equity repurchases and shareholder distributions. Cash provided by financing activities is a source of capital utilized by the Company to fund investment activities.
The Company funds its development and acquisitions with long-term capital sources and proceeds from the disposition of properties. For the nine months ended September 30, 2007, a significant portion of these activities were funded through a $600 million Credit Facility (the “$600 million Credit Facility”). The interest rate on borrowings under the $600 million Credit Facility fluctuates based upon ratings from Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. (“Moody’s”), Standard and Poor’s Ratings Group (“S&P”) and Fitch, Inc. (“Fitch”). The current ratings for the Company’s senior unsecured debt are Baa2, BBB and BBB+ from Moody’s, S&P and Fitch, respectively. At these ratings, the interest rate for borrowings under the $600 million Credit Facility is 65 basis points over LIBOR. The $600 million Credit Facility contains an accordion feature whereby the Company may borrow an additional $200 million. The $600 million Credit Facility expires in January 2010, and has a one-year extension option.
Additionally, the Company has entered into an agreement to fund its planned improvements for the Kings Hill Phase 2 land development project. At September 30, 2007, a £5 million short term loan facility and a £7 million revolving credit facility are undrawn and available. The short term loan matures on November 22, 2007 and the revolving credit facility expires on November 22, 2011.

The Company uses debt financing to lower its overall cost of capital in an attempt to increase the return to shareholders. The Company staggers its debt maturities and maintains debt levels it considers to be prudent. In determining its debt levels, the Company considers various financial measures including the debt to gross assets ratio and the fixed charge coverage ratio. As of September 30, 2007 the Company’s debt to gross assets ratio was 44.4%, and for the nine months ended September 30, 2007, the fixed charge coverage ratio was 2.4. Debt to gross assets equals total long-term debt, borrowings under the $600 million Credit Facility, and borrowings under the Liberty/Commerz 1701 JFK Boulevard, LP financing arrangement divided by total assets plus accumulated depreciation. The fixed charge coverage ratio equals income from continuing operations before property dispositions and minority interest, including operating activity from discontinued operations, plus interest expense and depreciation and amortization, divided by interest expense, including capitalized interest, plus distributions on preferred units.
As of September 30, 2007, $232.0 million in mortgage loans and $2,155.0 million in unsecured notes were outstanding with a weighted average interest rate of 6.6%. The interest rates on $2,387.0 million of mortgage loans and unsecured notes are fixed and range from 5.125% to 9.75%. The weighted average remaining term for the mortgage loans and unsecured notes is 6.1 years.
The scheduled principal amortization and maturities of the Company’s mortgage loans, unsecured notes outstanding, the $600 million Credit Facility, the Liberty/Commerz 1701 JFK Boulevard, LP financing arrangement and the related weighted average interest rates as of September 30, 2007 are as follows (in thousands, except percentages):

The Company anticipates that it will refinance or retire these maturities through its available sources of capital.
General
The Company has continued to focus on the performance of the Same Store portfolio. In addition, the Company has continued to pursue development and acquisition opportunities and the strategic disposition of certain properties. The Company endeavors to maintain high occupancy levels while increasing rental rates.

The Company’s existing sources of capital include the public debt and equity markets, proceeds from dispositions of properties, equity contributions by joint venture partners and net cash provided from operating activities. Additionally, the Company expects to incur variable rate debt, including borrowings under the $600 million Credit Facility, from time to time.
The Company has an effective S-3 shelf registration statement on file with the SEC (the “Shelf Registration Statement”). As of November 1, 2007, pursuant to the Shelf Registration Statement, the Trust had the capacity to issue up to $586.1 million in equity securities and the Operating Partnership had the capacity to issue up to $210.2 million in debt securities.
Calculation of Funds from Operations
The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) has issued a standard definition for Funds from operations (as defined below). The SEC has agreed to the disclosure of this non-GAAP financial measure on a per share basis in its Release No. 34-47226, Conditions for Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures. The Company believes that the calculation of Funds from operations is helpful to investors and management as it is a measure of the Company’s operating performance that excludes depreciation and amortization and gains and losses from property dispositions. As a result, year over year comparison of Funds from operations reflects the impact on operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities, general and administrative expenses, and interest costs, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income. In addition, management believes that Funds from operations provides useful information to the investment community about the Company’s financial performance when compared to other REITs since Funds from operations is generally recognized as the standard for reporting the operating performance of a REIT. Funds from operations available to common shareholders is defined by NAREIT as net income (computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”)), excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus depreciation and amortization, and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. Funds from operations available to common shareholders does not represent net income as defined by GAAP and does not necessarily indicate that cash flows will be sufficient to fund cash needs. It should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance or to cash flows as a measure of liquidity.

Inflation
Inflation has remained relatively low during the last three years, and as a result, it has not had a significant impact on the Company during this period. The $600 million Credit Facility and the financing related to the Comcast Center (see footnote (1) to the debt maturity schedule in the Liquidity and Capital Resources Section) bear interest at variable rates; therefore, the amount of interest payable under the $600 million Credit Facility and the financing related to the Comcast Center is influenced by changes in short-term interest rates, which tend to be sensitive to inflation. To the extent an increase in inflation would result in increased operating costs, such as in insurance, real estate taxes and utilities, substantially all of the tenants’ leases require the tenants to absorb these costs as part of their rental obligations. In addition, inflation also may have the effect of increasing market rental rates.
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk
There have been no material changes to the Company’s exposure to market risk since its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company’s management, with the participation of its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that its disclosure controls and procedures, as of the end of the period covered by this report, are functioning effectively to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by the Company in its reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Changes in Internal Controls

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended September 30, 2007 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION
Item 1.   Legal Proceedings
    The Company has been substituted for Republic as a party to certain litigation as a result of the Company’s merger with Republic on October 4, 2007. The litigation is summarized below. The litigation arises out of a dispute between Republic and certain parties, two of whom were members of its Board of Trustees and “founders” of Republic. The dispute includes claims arising from the termination of a development arrangement in West Palm Beach, Florida and an attempt by Republic to acquire a certain office property from an entity controlled by the aforementioned related parties pursuant to an option agreement entered in to at the time of Republic’s formation.
 
    On November 17, 2006, Republic disclosed in a Form 8-K that Mr. Grigg, its President and Chief Development Officer, had notified it that he was terminating his employment, purportedly for “good reason,” as such term is defined in his employment agreement, dated December 20, 2005. Mr. Grigg also asserted that, as a result of such termination, he was entitled to the severance payments provided for under the terms of the employment agreement. The cash portion of such severance payments could be valued at up to approximately $1.8 million. The Company disagrees with Mr. Grigg that there is a basis for termination by Mr. Grigg for good reason; therefore, we believe that Mr. Grigg terminated his employment without good reason as of November 13, 2006, the date of his termination letter. Accordingly, we believe that no severance payments are due, and we have not remitted any such payments, to Mr. Grigg under the terms of his employment agreement.
 
    On December 22, 2006, Mr. Grigg filed a lawsuit against Republic in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. Mr. Grigg alleges, among other things, that (i) Republic breached his employment agreement, (ii) Republic breached its duties of good faith and fair dealing and (iii) the Noncompetition Agreement dated December 20, 2005 between Mr. Grigg and Republic is unenforceable and void. Mr. Grigg seeks, among other remedies, (i) the severance payment allegedly due under the employment agreement, (ii) other damages in an amount to be finally determined at trial and (iii) the voiding of the Noncompetition Agreement. The Company believes that Mr. Grigg’s lawsuit is without merit, generally denies the allegations in the complaint and denies that Mr. Grigg is entitled to any of the relief sought in his complaint. Republic originally asserted various counterclaims against Mr. Grigg, including claims for common law fraud, state securities fraud, breach of his employment agreement, breach of fiduciary duties and unjust enrichment. Republic subsequently voluntarily dismissed without prejudice its common law fraud, state securities fraud and unjust enrichment claims in order to pursue those claims in the below described litigation pending in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The Company’s counterclaims against Mr. Grigg for breach of his employment agreement and breach of his fiduciary duties remain pending in the District of Columbia Superior Court litigation. On March 30, 2007, the Court denied, in its entirety, Mr. Grigg’s motion to dismiss these counterclaims. The Company seeks damages and other appropriate relief on these counterclaims.
 
    On March 6, 2007, Mr. Richard Kramer, Republic’s former Non-executive Chairman of the Board, filed a lawsuit against Republic in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland Southern Division, in which he seeks advancement for legal fees incurred by him purportedly in connection with an independent counsel’s investigation with respect to certain matters involving Republic’s course of dealing in a West Palm Beach development project, as well as those fees incurred in filing and prosecuting this lawsuit. On May 3, 2007, Mr. Kramer voluntarily dismissed this case, and filed an almost identical lawsuit against Republic in the Circuit Court of Baltimore County, Maryland. We believe that Mr. Richard Kramer’s lawsuit is without merit and have filed a motion to dismiss or, in the alternative, motion for summary judgment, seeking the dismissal of Mr. Richard Kramer’s lawsuit. Mr. Richard Kramer has filed a motion for summary judgment against the Company. On November 2, 2007 the Court denied Mr. Kramer’s motion for summary judgment and granted the Company’s motion to dismiss.
 
    On March 28, 2007, Republic filed a lawsuit against Messrs. Richard Kramer and Grigg and Republic Properties Corporation in the United States District Court of the District of Columbia. This lawsuit asserts, among other things, claims against (i) all three defendants for (a) federal and state securities fraud and (b) common law fraud; (ii) Messrs. Richard Kramer and Grigg for (a) federal and state control person liability and (b) unjust enrichment; and (iii) Republic Properties Corporation for (a) breach of contract and (b) indemnification. The Company seeks, among other remedies, (i) damages in an amount not less than

39


Table of Contents

    $1.2 million, the approximate value (at the time of issuance) of the partnership units issued by Republic Property Limited Partnership to Republic Properties Corporation in connection with the West Palm Beach City Center Development Contribution Agreement, (ii) additional damages incurred by us as a result of the termination of the West Palm Beach Professional Services Agreement, (iii) recovery of the costs, including attorneys fees, associated with the previously-disclosed independent investigation, (iv) reimbursement for Republic’s expenses in this litigation, including attorneys’ fees, and (v) other damages, including punitive damages, in an amount to be finally determined at trial. On April 27, 2007, Republic filed an Amended Complaint in the District of Columbia District Court action, adding to the claims set forth immediately above a claim for declaratory judgment that Mr. Kramer was not entitled to advancement or reimbursement of any of the fees sought in his Maryland litigation. Republic Properties Corporation, Mr. Richard Kramer and Mr. Grigg have filed motions to dismiss this lawsuit, which are currently pending.
 
    On May 21, 2007, Republic proffered a lease (the “Lease”) to 25 Massachusetts Avenue Property LLC (the “Owner”) for certain space in Republic Square I, an office building in Washington, D.C. (the “Option Property”). Based on information provided by the Owner, immediately prior to the proffer of the Lease, approximately 50% of the Option Property’s net rentable area was under lease and approximately 37% of the Option Property’s net rentable area was rent paying space. Had the Owner accepted the Lease, more than 85% of the space in the Option Property would have been rent paying space. The base rents and other material terms of the Lease proffer are based on the Owner’s lease up projections for the Property and the Lease is on the Owner’s form lease agreement.
 
    On May 22, 2007, the Owner rejected the proffer of the Lease, asserting, among other things, that it was “not a bona fide business proposal for Republic’s own occupancy and leasing of space”. On May 29, 2007, Republic (i) re-tendered the Lease to the Owner for certain space at the Option Property and (ii) exercised its exclusive option to purchase the fee interest in the Option Property pursuant to the Option Agreement among the Owner, 660 North Capitol Street Property LLC and Republic dated as of November 28, 2005 (the “Option Agreement”). On May 30, 2007, the Owner rejected the Lease and claimed that “there has been no effective exercise of the Option.” The Company believes that the Lease was properly tendered for an appropriate purpose and, accordingly, the Company re-proffered the Lease to the Owner. The Owner rejected the Lease proffer and disputed whether the Lease entitled Republic to purchase the Property, pursuant to its exercise of the option, at the Purchase Price (as defined in the Option Agreement).
 
    In response to the Owner’s rejection, on June 15, 2007, Republic filed a lawsuit against the Owner in the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware. This lawsuit asserts, among other things, that (i) by refusing to accept Republic’s option exercise the Owner has breached the Option Agreement and (ii) by deciding not to refinance a construction loan on the Property and rejecting the Lease, the Owner has breached the covenant of good faith and fair dealing implied in every contract governed by the laws of the District of Columbia. Republic sought, among other remedies, to obtain (I) an injunction against the Owner’s sale of the Option Property to any party other than Republic, (II) a declaration that the Lease and option exercise are effective and (III) an order that the Owner specifically perform its obligation to sell the Option Property to Republic pursuant to the Option Agreement. Also on June 15, 2007, Republic filed a Notice of Pendency of Action (Lis Pendens) in the Office of the Recorder of Deeds in the District of Columbia, in order to record Republic’s interest in the Option Property as reflected in the Delaware Chancery Court action. On July 2, 2007, the Owner answered the complaint and counterclaimed, seeking monetary damages related to the Owner’s purported attempts to sell the Option Property to a third party. The outcome of this lawsuit is uncertain. The Company cannot provide any assurance that the purchase and sale of the Option Property pursuant to the Option Agreement will occur. As previously disclosed, two of Republic’s founders and Trustees, Richard L. Kramer and Steven A. Grigg, currently control the Owner. As previously disclosed, Mark R. Keller, Republic’s former Chief Executive Officer, holds an ownership interest in the Owner.
 
    The outcome of the lawsuits described above could have an adverse effect on our results of operations, financial position and cash flow.

(1)   On June 25, 2007, the Company announced that the Board of Trustees had approved a $50 million accelerated share repurchase program (ASR) as part of an approval of an overall program to repurchase up to $100 million of the Trust’s common shares of beneficial interest over the period beginning on the date of the authorization and ending on March 13, 2012. The Company further announced that, upon completion of the ASR, the Company will consider repurchasing the balance of the $100 million overall share repurchase authorization in open market transactions, in privately negotiated transactions or through the use of derivatives. The specific timing and amount of repurchases will vary based on market conditions, securities law limitations and other factors. The repurchases will be made using the Company’s cash resources, and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time without prior notice. This table does not include shares tendered to satisfy the exercise price in connection with cashless exercises of employee stock options or shares tendered to satisfy tax withholding obligations in connection with employee equity awards.
