We invested $295 million in new investments, negotiated long term leases at two of our large single tenant properties, leased up properties that had been acquired with significant vacancy and harvested value through the sale of certain assets. We look forward to 2013 as we continue to realize gains through select asset sales and redeploy that capital, along with $97 million in existing cash reserves, to new investment opportunities which we expect will continue through 2013.”
