1.
ORGANIZATION
KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed on December 22, 2009 as a Maryland corporation that intends to qualify as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) beginning with the taxable year ended December 31, 2011. Substantially all of the Company’s business is expected to be conducted through KBS Limited Partnership III (the “Operating Partnership”), a Delaware limited partnership. The Company is the sole general partner of and owns a 0.1% partnership interest in the Operating Partnership. KBS REIT Holdings III LLC (“REIT Holdings III”), the limited partner of the Operating Partnership, owns the remaining 99.9% interest in the Operating Partnership and is its sole limited partner. The Company is the sole member and manager of REIT Holdings III.
Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, the business of the Company is externally managed by KBS Capital Advisors LLC (the “Advisor”), an affiliate of the Company, pursuant to an advisory agreement the Company entered into with the Advisor (the “Advisory Agreement”). On January 26, 2010, the Company issued 20,000 shares of its common stock to the Advisor at a purchase price of $10.00 per share. As of March 31, 2012, the Advisor owned 20,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.
The Company intends to invest in a diverse portfolio of real estate properties and real estate-related assets. The primary types of properties the Company expects to invest in include office, industrial and retail properties located throughout the United States. All such real estate assets may be acquired directly by the Company or the Operating Partnership, though the Company may invest in other entities that make similar investments. The Company also expects to invest in real estate-related assets such as mortgage, mezzanine, bridge and other loans; debt and derivative securities related to real estate assets, including mortgage-backed securities; and the equity securities of other REITs and real estate companies. As of March 31, 2012, the Company owned three office properties and one first mortgage loan secured by a deed of trust.
On February 4, 2010, the Company filed a registration statement on Form S-11 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to offer a minimum of 250,000 shares and a maximum of 280,000,000 shares of common stock for sale to the public (the “Offering”), of which 80,000,000 shares are being offered pursuant to the Company’s dividend reinvestment plan. The SEC declared the Company’s registration statement effective on October 26, 2010, and the Company retained KBS Capital Markets Group LLC (the “Dealer Manager”), an affiliate of the Company, to serve as the dealer manager of the Offering pursuant to a dealer manager agreement, as amended and restated (the “Dealer Manager Agreement”). The Dealer Manager is responsible for marketing the Company’s shares being offered pursuant to the Offering. As described above, the Company intends to use substantially all of the net proceeds from the Offering to invest in a diverse portfolio of real estate properties and real estate-related assets.
On March 24, 2011, the Company broke escrow in the Offering and through March 31, 2012, the Company had sold 15,338,869 shares of common stock for gross offering proceeds of $152.7 million, including 161,135 shares of common stock under its dividend reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $1.5 million. Also as of March 31, 2012, the Company had redeemed 15,000 shares sold in the Offering for $0.2 million.

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information as contained within the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) and the rules and regulations of the SEC, including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for audited financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements for the unaudited interim periods presented include all adjustments, which are of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair and consistent presentation of the results for such periods. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012.
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, REIT Holdings III, the Operating Partnership and their direct and indirect wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.
Per Share Data
Basic net income (loss) per share of common stock is calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock issued and outstanding during such period. Diluted net income (loss) per share of common stock equals basic net income (loss) per share of common stock as there were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2012.
Distributions declared per common share assumes each share was issued and outstanding each day during the period from January 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, distributions were based on daily record dates and calculated at a rate of $0.00178082 per share per day. Each day during the periods from January 1, 2012 through February 28, 2012 and March 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012 was a record date for distributions.
Segments
The Company’s segments are based on the Company’s method of internal reporting, which classifies its operations by investment types: real estate and real estate-related. For financial data by segment, see Note 9, “Segment Information.”
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Update
In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-10, Property, Plant and Equipment (Topic 360): Derecognition of in Substance Real Estate-a Scope Clarification (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force) (“ASU No. 2011-10”).  ASU No. 2011-10 clarifies when a parent (reporting entity) ceases to have a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary that is in substance real estate as a result of a default on the subsidiary’s nonrecourse debt, the reporting entity should apply the guidance for Real Estate Sale (Subtopic 360-20).  For public companies, the provisions of ASU No. 2011-10 are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning on or after June 15, 2012.  The Company does not expect that the adoption of ASU No. 2011-10 will have a material impact to its consolidated financial statements.

Recent Acquisition
On March 27, 2012, the Company, through an indirect wholly owned subsidiary (the “Town Center Owner”), acquired three office buildings containing 522,043 rentable square feet located on approximately 10.3 acres of land in Plano, Texas (“Town Center”). The contractual purchase price of Town Center was approximately $113.0 million plus closing costs. The Company allocated the purchase price of this property to the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The Company allocated $7.4 million to land, $95.8 million to building and improvements, $12.8 million to tenant origination and absorption costs and $3.4 million to below-market leases during the three months ended March 31, 2012. The intangible assets and liabilities acquired in connection with this acquisition have weighted-average amortization periods as of the date of acquisition of 6.2 years for tenant origination and absorption costs and 7.9 years for below-market leases.
The Company recorded the acquisition as a business combination and expensed $1.4 million of acquisition costs related to this property for the three months ended March 31, 2012. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized $0.2 million of total revenues and $0.1 million of operating expenses from this property.
Operating Leases
The Company’s real estate properties are leased to tenants under operating leases for which the terms and expirations vary. As of March 31, 2012, the leases had remaining terms, excluding options to extend, of up to 10.8 years with a weighted-average remaining term of 5.9 years. Some of the leases have provisions to extend the term of the leases, options for early termination after paying a specified penalty, rights of first refusal to purchase the property at competitive market rates, and other terms and conditions as negotiated. The Company retains substantially all of the risks and benefits of ownership of the real estate assets leased to tenants. Generally, upon the execution of a lease, the Company requires a security deposit from tenants in the form of a cash deposit and/or a letter of credit. The amount required as a security deposit varies depending upon the terms of the respective leases and the creditworthiness of the tenant, but generally are not significant amounts. Therefore, exposure to credit risk exists to the extent that a receivable from a tenant exceeds the amount of its security deposit. Security deposits received in cash related to tenant leases are included in other liabilities in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and totaled $0.9 million and $0.4 million as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.
During the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company recognized deferred rent from tenants of $0.3 million. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the cumulative deferred rent balance was $0.6 million and $0.3 million, respectively, and is included in rents and other receivables on the accompanying balance sheets.

Recent Financing Transaction
Town Center Mortgage Loan
On March 27, 2012, in connection with the Company's acquisition of Town Center, the Company, through the Town Center Owner, entered into a one-year secured mortgage loan with Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, an unaffiliated lender (the “Town Center Mortgage Lender”), for borrowings of up to $60.3 million secured by Town Center (the “Town Center Mortgage Loan”). The Company drew the entire $60.3 million at the closing of the loan. The Town Center Mortgage Loan matures on March 27, 2013.  The Town Center Mortgage Loan bears interest at a floating rate of 225 basis points over one-month LIBOR during the term of the loan and monthly payments are interest only with the entire balance and all outstanding interest and fees due at maturity, assuming no prior prepayment. On or after September 27, 2012, the Company will have the right to prepay all or a portion of the Town Center Mortgage Loan without penalty or fees.
KBS REIT Properties III, LLC (“REIT Properties III”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, is providing a limited guaranty of the Town Center Mortgage Loan with respect to certain potential costs, expenses, losses, damages and other sums which may result from certain intentional actions committed by the Company, the Town Center Owner, REIT Properties III, the Advisor and/or any of their affiliates in violation of the loan documents. REIT Properties III is also providing a guaranty of the principal balance and any interest or other sums outstanding under the Town Center Mortgage Loan in the event of certain bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings involving the Town Center Owner.
The Town Center Mortgage Loan is also cross-collateralized and, at the option of the Town Center Mortgage Lender, cross-defaulted with the Portfolio Bridge Loan, which is secured by Las Cimas IV and Domain Gateway. Additionally, on March 27, 2012 the deeds of trust for both of those assets were modified to provide that the Portfolio Bridge Loan is cross-collateralized and, at the option of the Town Center Mortgage Lender (which is also the lender under the Portfolio Bridge Loan), cross-defaulted with the Town Center Mortgage Loan.

FAIR VALUE DISCLOSURES
Under GAAP, the Company is required to measure certain financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis. In addition, the Company is required to measure other financial instruments and balances at fair value on a non-recurring basis (e.g., carrying value of impaired real estate loans receivable and long-lived assets). Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The GAAP fair value framework uses a three-tiered approach. Fair value measurements are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:
Level 1: unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2: quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model‑derived valuations in which significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and
Level 3: prices or valuation techniques where little or no market data is available that requires inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.

The fair value for certain financial instruments is derived using a combination of market quotes, pricing models and other valuation techniques that involve significant management judgment. The price transparency of financial instruments is a key determinant of the degree of judgment involved in determining the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments. Financial instruments for which actively quoted prices or pricing parameters are available and for which markets contain orderly transactions will generally have a higher degree of price transparency than financial instruments for which markets are inactive or consist of non-orderly trades. The Company evaluates several factors when determining if a market is inactive or when market transactions are not orderly. The following is a summary of the methods and assumptions used by management in estimating the fair value of each class of financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate the fair value:
Cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, rent and other receivables, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities: These balances approximate their fair values due to the short maturities of these items.
Real estate loan receivable: The Company’s real estate loan receivable is presented in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets at its amortized cost net of recorded loan loss reserves and not at fair value. The fair value of the real estate loan receivable was estimated using an internal valuation model that considered the expected cash flows for the loan, underlying collateral values (for collateral-dependent loans) and estimated yield requirements of institutional investors for loans with similar characteristics, including remaining loan term, loan-to-value, type of collateral and other credit enhancements. The Company classifies these inputs as Level 3 inputs.
Notes payable: The fair values of the Company’s notes payable are estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis based on management’s estimates of current market interest rates for instruments with similar characteristics, including remaining loan term, loan-to-value ratio, type of collateral and other credit enhancements. Additionally, when determining the fair value of a liability in circumstances in which a quoted price in an active market for an identical liability is not available, the Company measures fair value using (i) a valuation technique that uses the quoted price of the identical liability when traded as an asset or quoted prices for similar liabilities when traded as assets or (ii) another valuation technique that is consistent with the principles of fair value measurement, such as the income approach or the market approach. The Company classifies these inputs as Level 3 inputs.
The following were the face values, carrying amounts and fair values of the Company’s real estate loan receivable and notes payable as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, which carrying amounts generally do not approximate the fair values (in thousands):

Disclosure of the fair values of financial instruments is based on pertinent information available to the Company as of March 31, 2012 and requires a significant amount of judgment. Despite increased capital market and credit market activity, transaction volume for certain financial instruments remains relatively low. This has made the estimation of fair values difficult and, therefore, both the actual results and the Company’s estimate of value at a future date could be materially different.

SEGMENT INFORMATION
The Company presently operates in two reportable business segments based on its investment types: real estate and real estate-related. Under the real estate segment, the Company has invested in office properties. Under the real estate-related segment, the Company has originated a mortgage loan. All revenues earned from the Company’s two operating segments were from external customers and there were no intersegment sales or transfers. The Company does not allocate corporate-level accounts to its operating segments. Corporate-level accounts include corporate general and administrative expenses, non-operating interest income, non-operating interest expense and other corporate-level expenses. The accounting policies of the segments are consistent with those described in Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.”
The Company evaluates the performance of its segments based upon net operating income (“NOI”), which is a non‑GAAP supplemental financial measure. The Company defines NOI for its real estate segment as operating revenues (rental income, tenant reimbursements and other operating income) less property and related expenses (property operating expenses, real estate taxes, insurance, asset management fees and provision for bad debt) less interest expense. The Company defines NOI for its real estate-related segment as interest income less loan servicing costs and asset management fees. NOI excludes certain items that are not considered to be controllable in connection with the management of an asset such as non‑property income and expenses, depreciation and amortization, and corporate general and administrative expenses. The Company uses NOI to evaluate the operating performance of the Company’s real estate and real estate-related investments and to make decisions about resource allocations. The Company believes that net income is the GAAP measure that is most directly comparable to NOI; however, NOI should not be considered as an alternative to net income as the primary indicator of operating performance, as it excludes the items described above. Additionally, NOI as defined above may not be comparable to other REITs or companies as their definitions of NOI may differ from the Company’s definition.

U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan
On April 30, 2012, in connection with the Company's acquisition of the McEwen Building, the Company, through indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, entered into a two-year portfolio loan with U.S. Bank National Association (the “Lender”), an unaffiliated lender, for an amount up to $100.0 million (the “U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan”), of which $40 million is term debt and $60 million is revolving debt. During the term of the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, the Company has an option to increase the loan amount by up to an additional $100.0 million, 60% of which additional amount would be revolving debt and 40% would be term debt, with the addition of one or more additional properties to secure the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. At the closing of the McEwen Building, the Company drew $80.7 million, of which $42.5 million was used to repay in full the principal balance outstanding under a one-year bridge loan secured by Domain Gateway and Las Cimas IV. As of April 30, 2012, $19.3 million of revolving debt was available for disbursement under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. On May 9, 2012, in connection with the acquisition of Gateway Tech Center, the Gateway Tech Center Owner became a borrower under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan by adding Gateway Tech Center as additional collateral for the loan. The Company drew an additional $19.3 million on the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan bringing the total funded amount to $100.0 million as of May 9, 2012. The U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan matures on May 1, 2014, with two one-year extension options, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. From April 30, 2012 through June 30, 2012, the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan bears interest at a floating rate of 300 basis points over one-month LIBOR. For each subsequent calendar quarter, the interest rate on the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan will be determined by the borrowing base leverage ratio as defined in the loan agreement and will range from 2.0% to 3.0% over one-month LIBOR. Monthly payments are interest only with the entire unpaid principal balance and all outstanding interest and fees due at maturity. The Company will have the right to prepay all or a portion of the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain fees and conditions contained in the agreement.
The U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan is secured by Domain Gateway, Las Cimas IV, the McEwen Building and Gateway Tech Center. The Company and KBS REIT Properties III, LLC, the Company's wholly owned subsidiary (together, the “Guarantors”), are providing a guaranty of up to 50% of the amount outstanding under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan. Additionally, the Guarantors are providing a guaranty of any deficiency, loss or damage suffered by the Lender that may result from certain intentional acts committed by the borrowers under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, or that may result from certain bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings involving the borrowers under the loan, pursuant to the terms of the repayment guaranty.
AIP Fee Reimbursement Agreement
On April 19, 2012, the Company entered into a fee reimbursement agreement with the Dealer Manager pursuant to which the Company agreed to reimburse the Dealer Manager for certain fees and expenses it incurs for administering the Company's participation in the DTCC Alternative Investment Product Platform (the “AIP Platform”) with respect to certain accounts of the Company's investors serviced through the AIP Platform.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the accompanying financial statements of KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, Inc. and the notes thereto. As used herein, the terms “we,” “our” and “us” refer to KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, Inc., a Maryland corporation, and, as required by context, KBS Limited Partnership III, a Delaware limited partnership, which we refer to as the “Operating Partnership,” and to their subsidiaries.
Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are forward-looking statements. Those statements include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of KBS Real Estate Investment Trust III, Inc. and members of our management team, as well as the assumptions on which such statements are based, and generally are identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “seeks,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “plans,” “intends,” “should” or similar expressions. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes to future operating results over time, unless required by law.
The following are some of the risks and uncertainties, although not all of the risks and uncertainties, that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those presented in our forward-looking statements:
We have a limited operating history and as of March 31, 2012, our total assets were $234.8 million. We are dependent on KBS Capital Advisors LLC (“KBS Capital Advisors”), our advisor, to identify suitable investments and to manage our investments.
All of our executive officers and some of our directors and other key real estate and debt finance professionals are also officers, directors, managers, key professionals and/or holders of a direct or indirect controlling interest in our advisor, our dealer manager and/or other KBS-affiliated entities. As a result, they face conflicts of interest, including significant conflicts created by our advisor’s compensation arrangements with us and other KBS-advised programs and investors and conflicts in allocating time among us and these other programs and investors. These conflicts could result in unanticipated actions. Fees paid to our advisor in connection with transactions involving the origination, acquisition and management of our investments are based on the cost of the investment, not on the quality of the investment or services rendered to us. This arrangement could influence our advisor to recommend riskier transactions to us.
Because investment opportunities that are suitable for us may also be suitable for other KBS-advised programs or investors, our advisor and its affiliates face conflicts of interest relating to the purchase of properties and other investments and such conflicts may not be resolved in our favor, meaning that we could invest in less attractive assets, which could reduce the investment return to our stockholders.
There is no assurance that we will raise the maximum offering amount in our initial public offering. If we raise substantially less than the maximum offering amount, we may not be able to invest in as diverse a portfolio of real estate properties and real estate-related assets as we otherwise would and the value of an investment in us may vary more widely with the performance of specific assets. There is a greater risk that stockholders will lose money in their investment in us if we have less diversity in our portfolio.
We pay substantial fees to and expenses of our advisor and its affiliates and, in connection with our initial public offering, to participating broker-dealers. These payments increase the risk that our stockholders will not earn a profit on their investment in us and increase our stockholders’ risk of loss.
Our charter permits us to pay distributions from any source, including offering proceeds or borrowings (both of which may constitute a return of capital), and our charter does not limit the amount of funds we may use from any source to pay such distributions. During our offering stage and from time to time during our operational stage, we have used and expect to continue to use proceeds from financings to fund distributions. We may also fund such distributions from the sale of assets or from the maturity, payoff or settlement of debt investments. To the extent that we pay distributions from sources other than our cash flow from operations, we will have less funds available for investment in properties and other assets.

20

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

Our policies do not limit us from incurring debt until our total liabilities would exceed 75% of the cost of our tangible assets (before deducting depreciation or other non-cash reserves), and we may exceed this limit with the approval of the conflicts committee of our board of directors. During the early stages of our initial public offering, and to the extent financing in excess of this limit is available on attractive terms, our conflicts committee may approve debt such that our total liabilities would exceed this limit. High debt levels could limit the amount of cash we have available to distribute and could result in a decline in the value of an investment in us.
We depend on our tenants for revenue and, accordingly, our revenue is dependent upon the success and economic viability of our tenants. Revenues from our properties could decrease due to a reduction in occupancy (caused by factors including, but not limited to, tenant defaults, tenant insolvency, early termination of tenant leases and non‑renewal of existing tenant leases) and/or lower rental rates, making it more difficult for us to meet our debt service obligations and limiting our ability to pay distributions to our stockholders.  
Our current and future investments in real estate, mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, bridge loans, mortgage-backed securities, collateralized debt obligations and other debt may be affected by unfavorable real estate market and general economic conditions, which could decrease the value of those assets and reduce the investment return to our stockholders. Revenues from our properties and the properties and other assets directly securing our loan investments could decrease. Such events would make it more difficult for the borrowers under our loan investments to meet their payment obligations to us. It could also make it more difficult for us to meet our debt service obligations and limit our ability to pay distributions to our stockholders.
If we are unable to locate investments with attractive yields while we are investing the proceeds of our initial public offering, our distributions and the long-term returns of our investors may be lower than they otherwise would.
We cannot predict with any certainty how much, if any, of our dividend reinvestment plan proceeds will be available for general corporate purposes including, but not limited to, the redemption of shares under our share redemption program, the funding of capital expenditures on our real estate investments, or the repayment of debt. If such funds are not available from the dividend reinvestment plan offering, then we may have to use a greater proportion of our cash flow from operations to meet these cash requirements, which would reduce cash available for distributions and could limit our ability to redeem shares under our share redemption program.
Continued disruptions in the financial markets and uncertain economic conditions could adversely affect our ability to implement our business strategy and generate returns to stockholders.
All forward-looking statements should be read in light of the risks identified in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and Part II, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
Overview
We were formed on December 22, 2009 as a Maryland corporation that intends to qualify as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) beginning with the taxable year ended December 31, 2011. On February 4, 2010, we filed a registration statement on Form S-11 with the SEC to offer a minimum of 250,000 shares and a maximum of 280,000,000 shares of common stock for sale to the public, of which 200,000,000 shares were registered in our primary offering and 80,000,000 shares were registered under our dividend reinvestment plan. The SEC declared our registration statement effective on October 26, 2010 and we retained KBS Capital Markets Group LLC (“KBS Capital Markets Group”), an affiliate of our advisor, to serve as the dealer manager of our initial public offering pursuant to a dealer manager agreement. The dealer manager is responsible for marketing our shares in our ongoing initial public offering.
We intend to invest in a diverse portfolio of real estate investments. The types of properties that we may invest in include office, industrial and retail properties located throughout the United States. Although we may invest in any of these types of properties, we expect to invest primarily in office and industrial properties. All such real estate assets may be acquired directly by us or the Operating Partnership, though we may invest in other entities that make similar investments. We also expect to invest in real estate-related investments, including mortgage, mezzanine, bridge and other loans; debt and derivative securities related to real estate assets, including mortgage-backed securities; and the equity securities of other REITs and real estate companies. As of March 31, 2012, we owned three office properties and had originated one first mortgage loan.
On March 24, 2011, we broke escrow in our initial public offering and through March 31, 2012, we had sold 15,338,869 shares of common stock for gross offering proceeds of $152.7 million, including 161,135 shares of common stock under our dividend reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $1.5 million. Also as of March 31, 2012, we had redeemed 15,000 shares sold in the offering for $0.2 million.

We have no paid employees.
Market Outlook – Real Estate and Real Estate Finance Markets
The following discussion is based on management's beliefs, observations and expectations with respect to the real estate and real estate finance markets.
During the past four years, there have been significant and widespread concerns about credit risk, both corporate and sovereign, and access to capital in the U.S. and global financial markets. Economies throughout the world have experienced lingering levels of high unemployment and low levels of consumer and business confidence due to a global downturn in economic activity. While some markets have shown some signs of recovery, concerns remain regarding job growth, income growth and the overall health of consumers and businesses. Recent global economic events remain centered on the potential for the default of European sovereign debt and the impact that such an event would have on the rest of the world’s financial markets. During 2011, Standard and Poor’s downgraded the credit rating of the United States to AA+ from AAA. Moody’s recently downgraded Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece and placed the UK and France on negative watch. These events have led to increased volatility in the capital markets.
In this environment, the health of the global capital markets remains a concern. The banking industry has been experiencing improved earnings, but the relatively low growth economic environment has caused the markets to question whether financial institutions are adequately capitalized. The credit downgrade of the United States has increased these concerns, especially for the larger, money center banks. Smaller financial institutions have continued to work with borrowers to amend and extend existing loans; however, as these loans reach maturity, there is the potential for future credit losses.
In Europe, the unresolved sovereign debt crisis remains a concern. Some European banks hold material quantities of sovereign debt on their balance sheets. The possible default or restructuring of the sovereign debt obligations of certain European Union countries and the resulting negative impact on the global banking system is a significant concern. The uncertainty surrounding the size of the problem and how regulators and governments intend to deal with the situation has caused many investors to reassess their pricing of risks. In response to the growing crisis the global credit markets have tightened, and the cost of capital, in general, has begun to increase.
Throughout the financial crisis and economic downturn, U.S. commercial real estate transactions experienced a sharp decline in volume. Very little market activity (buying or selling) took place in 2009 and the first half of 2010. In the second half of 2010 and the first half of 2011, the markets experienced a rebound in transaction activity. High-quality assets in primary (top-tier) markets experienced the largest increase in transaction volume. The second half of 2011, however, witnessed a significant slowdown in the level of market activity. Uncertainty in areas such as the cost of capital, and the ability to hedge asset risks, produced enough friction to bring transaction volumes down. However, toward the end of December and the beginning of the first quarter of 2012, the U.S. commercial real estate markets showed signs of recovery and increased transaction volumes.
While there are signs of improvement for commercial real estate, the outstanding economic, credit and regulatory issues remain. Certain markets will continue to benefit from employment gains specific to the location and regionally based growth industries such as technology, energy and health care. The capital markets also have an impact on these trends. Lending activity increased in 2011, but market volatility has increased caution among lenders and can affect capital supply. Commercial mortgage-backed securities lending, which was largely shut down in the second half of 2011, began again during the first quarter of 2012.
Despite improved access to capital for some companies, the aforementioned economic conditions have continued to impact the capital markets. Global government interventions in the banking system and the persistence of a highly expansionary monetary policy by the U.S. Treasury have introduced additional complexity and uncertainty to the markets. The U.S. government’s recent introduction of additional regulation to the financial markets, including the banking, insurance and brokerage sectors, has resulted in general uncertainty as to the long-term impact on these markets and on the economy as a whole. Adding to this uncertainty are increased disclosure requirements and changes to accounting principles involving the valuation of investments. These conditions are expected to continue, and combined with a challenging macro-economic environment, may interfere with the implementation of our business strategy and/or force us to modify it.

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

Impact on Our Real Estate Investments
These market conditions may have a significant impact on our real estate investments and will likely create a highly competitive leasing environment. In addition, these market conditions have impacted or may impact our tenants’ businesses, making it more difficult for them to meet current lease obligations and placing pressure on them to negotiate more favorable lease terms upon renewal in order for their businesses to remain viable. Possible future declines in rental rates, slower or potentially negative net absorption of leased space and expectations of future rental concessions, including free rent to retain tenants who are up for renewal or to sign new tenants, may result in decreases in cash flow. Historically low interest rates could help offset some of the impact of decreases in operating cash flow for properties financed with variable rate mortgages; however, interest rates may not remain at these historically low levels for the life of many of our investments.
Impact on Our Real Estate‑Related Investment
Our real estate‑related investment is directly secured by commercial real estate. As a result, our real estate‑related investment may be impacted to some degree by the same factors that may impact our real estate investments.
As of March 31, 2012, we had a fixed rate real estate loan receivable with a principal balance of $11.3 million and a carrying value of $11.4 million that matures in 2016.
Impact on Our Financing Activities
In light of the risks associated with possible declines of operating cash flows on our properties and the current underwriting environment for commercial real estate mortgages, we may have difficulty refinancing some of our mortgage notes at maturity or may not be able to refinance our obligations at terms as favorable as the terms of our existing indebtedness. As of March 31, 2012, we had variable rate notes payable with an aggregate principal amount outstanding of $102.5 million, all of which mature within 12 months of that date.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
We are dependent upon the net proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering to conduct our proposed operations. We will obtain the capital required to purchase real estate and real estate-related investments and conduct our operations from: the proceeds of our ongoing initial public offering, including our dividend reinvestment plan, and any future follow-on offerings we may conduct; secured or unsecured financings from banks and other lenders; and any undistributed funds from our operations.
On March 24, 2011, we broke escrow in our offering and through March 31, 2012, we had sold 15,338,869 shares for gross offering proceeds of $152.7 million, including 161,135 shares of common stock under our dividend reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $1.5 million. Also as of March 31, 2012, we had redeemed 15,000 shares sold in our offering for $0.2 million. If we are unable to raise substantial funds in our ongoing initial public offering, we will make fewer investments resulting in less diversification in terms of the type, number, size and geographic region of investments we make and the value of an investment in us will be tied more closely to the performance of the specific assets we acquire. Further, we will have certain fixed operating expenses, including certain expenses as a publicly offered REIT, regardless of whether we are able to raise substantial funds in our initial public offering. Our inability to raise substantial funds would increase our fixed operating expenses as a percentage of gross income, reducing our net income and limiting our ability to make distributions.
During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we acquired one office property. Our cash needs for this investment were met with the proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering and debt financing. Operating cash needs during the same period were met through cash flow generated by our real estate properties and real-estate related investment and with proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering.
Our investments in real estate generate cash flow in the form of rental revenues and tenant reimbursements, which are reduced by operating expenditures, debt service payments and corporate general and administrative expenses. Cash flow from operations from real estate investments will be primarily dependent upon the occupancy level of our portfolio, the net effective rental rates on our leases, the collectibility of rent and operating recoveries from our tenants and how well we manage our expenditures. As of March 31, 2012, we owned three office properties that were collectively 90% occupied.
Our real estate-related investment generates cash flow in the form of interest income, which is reduced by loan servicing fees and corporate general and administrative expenses. Cash flows from operations from our real estate-related investment are primarily dependent on the operating performance of the underlying collateral and the borrower’s ability to make its debt service payments. As of March 31, 2012, the borrower under our real estate loan receivable was current on all contractual debt service payments to us.

23

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

As of March 31, 2012, we had mortgage debt obligations in the aggregate principal amount of $102.5 million, which mature within 12 months of that date.
We made distributions to our stockholders during the three months ended March 31, 2012 with debt financing. We believe that our cash flow from operations, cash on hand, proceeds from our dividend reinvestment plan and anticipated financing activities are sufficient to meet our liquidity needs for the foreseeable future.
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
We commenced operations in connection with the acquisition of our first investment on June 24, 2011. As of March 31, 2012, we owned three office properties and one real estate loan receivable. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, net cash used in operating activities was $0.4 million. We expect that our cash flows from operating activities will increase in future periods as a result of owning investments acquired in 2012 for an entire period and anticipated future acquisitions of real estate and real estate‑related investments.
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
Net cash used in investing activities was $116.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and primarily consisted of the following:
$112.6 million for the acquisition of one real estate property;
$2.5 million of escrow deposits for probable real estate acquisitions; and
$1.1 million of funding obligations under our real estate loan receivable.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
Our cash flows from financing activities consist primarily of proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering, debt financings and distributions paid to our stockholders. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, net cash provided by financing activities was $101.5 million and primarily consisted of the following:
$59.8 million of net cash provided by debt financing as a result of proceeds from notes payable of $60.2 million, partially offset by payments of deferred financing costs of $0.4 million;
$42.8 million of net cash provided by offering proceeds related to our initial public offering, net of payments of commissions, dealer manager fees and other organization and offering expenses of $5.2 million; and
$1.0 million of net cash distributions, after giving effect to dividends reinvested by stockholders of $0.8 million.
Once we have fully invested the proceeds of our ongoing initial public offering, we expect that our debt financing and other liabilities will be between 35% and 65% of the cost of our tangible assets (before deducting depreciation or other non-cash reserves). We expect our debt financing related to the acquisition of core properties to be between 45% and 65% of the aggregate cost of all such assets. We expect our debt financing related to the acquisition of real estate-related investments to be between 0% and 65% of the aggregate cost of all such assets, depending upon the market's appetite for such financings. Though this is our target leverage, our charter does not limit our leverage until our total liabilities would exceed 75% of the cost of our tangible assets (before deducting depreciation or other non-cash reserves), and we may exceed this limit with the approval of the conflicts committee of our board of directors. During the early stages of our initial public offering, and to the extent financing in excess of this limit is available on attractive terms, our conflicts committee may approve debt in excess of this limit. As of March 31, 2012, our borrowings and other liabilities were approximately 47% of both the cost (before depreciation and other noncash reserves) and book value (before depreciation) of our tangible assets, respectively.

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

In addition to making investments in accordance with our investment objectives, we expect to use our capital resources to make certain payments to our advisor and the dealer manager. Pursuant to the advisory agreement and the dealer manager agreement, we are obligated to reimburse our advisor, the dealer manager or their affiliates, as applicable, for organization and other offering costs paid by them on our behalf.  However, at the termination of our primary offering and at the termination of the offering under our dividend reinvestment plan, our advisor has agreed to reimburse us to the extent that selling commissions, dealer manager fees and other organization and offering expenses incurred by us exceed 15% of the gross offering proceeds of the respective offering. In addition, at the end of the primary offering and again at the end of the offering pursuant to our dividend reinvestment plan, our advisor has agreed to reimburse us to the extent that organization and offering expenses excluding underwriting compensation (which includes selling commissions, dealer manager fees and any other items viewed as underwriting compensation by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) exceed 2% of the gross proceeds we raised in the respective offering. We reimburse the dealer manager for underwriting compensation as discussed in the prospectus for our ongoing initial public offering, provided that within 30 days after the end of the month in which the primary initial public offering terminates, the dealer manager must reimburse us to the extent that our reimbursements cause total underwriting compensation for the primary initial public offering to exceed 10% of the gross offering proceeds from such offering. We also pay directly or reimburse the dealer manager for bona fide invoiced due diligence expenses of broker dealers. However, no reimbursements made by us to our advisor or the dealer manager may cause total organization and offering expenses incurred by us (including selling commissions, dealer manager fees and all other items of organization and offering expenses) to exceed 15% of the aggregate gross proceeds from our primary offering and the offering under our dividend reinvestment plan as of the date of reimbursement. During our acquisition and development stage, we expect to make payments to our advisor in connection with the selection and origination or purchase of investments, the management of our assets and costs incurred by our advisor in providing services to us. The advisory agreement has a one-year term but may be renewed for an unlimited number of successive one-year periods upon the mutual consent of our advisor and our conflicts committee.

Results of Operations
The SEC declared the registration statement for our ongoing initial public offering effective on October 26, 2010, and we retained KBS Capital Markets Group LLC, an affiliate of our advisor, to serve as the dealer manager of the offering. Our results of operations as of March 31, 2012 are not indicative of those expected in future periods as we broke escrow in our initial public offering on March 24, 2011 and commenced operations on June 24, 2011 in connection with our first investment. During the three months ended March 31, 2011, we had been formed but had not yet commenced any significant operations. As a result, we had no material results of operations for that period.
As of March 31, 2012, we owned three office properties and one real estate loan receivable. In general, we expect that our income and expenses related to our portfolio will increase in future periods as a result of owning investments acquired in 2012 for an entire period and anticipated future acquisitions of real estate and real estate-related investments.
Rental income and tenant reimbursements from our three real estate properties were $1.8 million and $0.9 million, respectively, for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Interest income from our real estate loan receivable, recognized using the interest method, was $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Property operating, maintenance and management costs totaled $0.5 million and real estate taxes and insurance totaled $0.4 million. Real estate acquisition fees totaled $1.4 million, of which $1.1 million was paid to affiliates. We recorded depreciation and amortization expense of $1.5 million. We incurred asset management fees with respect to three real estate properties and one real estate loan receivable of $0.2 million. All asset management fees incurred as of March 31, 2012 have been paid. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we incurred interest expense of $0.4 million, including amortization of deferred financing costs of $0.1 million.
General and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 totaled $0.6 million and consisted primarily of insurance expense, professional fees and independent director fees. We expect general and administrative costs to increase in the future as a result of anticipated future acquisitions of real estate and real estate-related investments.
Organization and Offering Costs
Our organization and offering costs (other than selling commissions and dealer manager fees) may be paid by our advisor, the dealer manager or their affiliates on our behalf. Other offering costs include all expenses incurred or to be incurred by us in connection with our ongoing initial public offering. Organization costs include all expenses incurred by us in connection with our formation, including but not limited to legal fees and other costs to incorporate. Organization costs are expensed as incurred and offering costs, which include selling commissions and dealer manager fees, are charged as incurred as a reduction to stockholders’ equity.
Pursuant to the advisory agreement and the dealer manager agreement, we are obligated to reimburse our advisor, the dealer manager or their affiliates, as applicable, for organization and other offering costs paid by them on our behalf.  However, at the termination of our primary offering and at the termination of the offering under our dividend reinvestment plan, our advisor has agreed to reimburse us to the extent that selling commissions, dealer manager fees and other organization and offering expenses incurred by us exceed 15% of the gross offering proceeds of the respective offering. In addition, at the end of our primary offering and again at the end of the offering under our dividend reinvestment plan, our advisor has agreed to reimburse us to the extent that organization and offering expenses excluding underwriting compensation (which includes selling commissions, dealer manager fees and any other items viewed as underwriting compensation by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) exceed 2% of the gross proceeds we raised in the respective offering. We reimburse the dealer manager for underwriting compensation as discussed in the prospectus for our ongoing initial public offering, provided that within 30 days after the end of the month in which our primary initial public offering terminates, the dealer manager must reimburse us to the extent that our reimbursements cause total underwriting compensation for our primary initial public offering to exceed 10% of the gross offering proceeds from such offering. We also pay directly or reimburse the dealer manager for bona fide invoiced due diligence expenses of broker dealers. However, no reimbursements made by us to our advisor or the dealer manager may cause total organization and offering expenses incurred by us (including selling commissions, dealer manager fees and all other items of organization and offering expenses) to exceed 15% of the aggregate gross proceeds from our primary offering and the offering under our dividend reinvestment plan as of the date of reimbursement. As of March 31, 2012, selling commissions, dealer manager fees, and organization and other offering costs did not exceed 15% of the gross offering proceeds. Through March 31, 2012, including shares issued through our dividend reinvestment plan, we had sold 15,338,869 shares in our offering for gross offering proceeds of $152.7 million and recorded selling commissions and dealer manager fees of $13.8 million and organization and other offering costs of $6.2 million.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

Funds from Operations
We believe that funds from operations (“FFO”) is a beneficial indicator of the performance of an equity REIT. We compute FFO in accordance with the current National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) definition. FFO represents net income, excluding gains and losses from sales of operating real estate assets (which can vary among owners of identical assets in similar conditions based on historical cost accounting and useful-life estimates), impairment losses on real estate assets, depreciation and amortization of real estate assets, and adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures. We believe FFO facilitates comparisons of operating performance between periods and among other REITs. However, our computation of FFO may not be comparable to other REITs that do not define FFO in accordance with the NAREIT definition or that interpret the current NAREIT definition differently than we do. Our management believes that historical cost accounting for real estate assets in accordance with GAAP implicitly assumes that the value of real estate assets diminishes predictably over time. Since real estate values have historically risen or fallen with market conditions, many industry investors and analysts have considered the presentation of operating results for real estate companies that use historical cost accounting to be insufficient by themselves. As a result, we believe that the use of FFO, together with the required GAAP presentations, provides a more complete understanding of our performance relative to our competitors and a more informed and appropriate basis on which to make decisions involving operating, financing, and investing activities.
FFO is a non-GAAP financial measure and does not represent net income as defined by GAAP. Net income as defined by GAAP is the most relevant measure in determining our operating performance because FFO includes adjustments that investors may deem subjective, such as adding back expenses such as depreciation and amortization. Accordingly, FFO should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance.
Our calculation of FFO, which we believe is consistent with the calculation of FFO as defined by NAREIT, is presented in the table below for the three months ended March 31, 2012 (in thousands):

Set forth below is additional information related to certain items included in net loss above, which may be helpful in assessing our operating results. Please see the accompanying consolidated statements of cash flows for details of our operating, investing, and financing cash activities.
Significant Items Included in Net Loss:
Revenues in excess of actual cash received of $0.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as a result of straight-line rent;
Acquisition fees and expenses related to the purchase of real estate of approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012, respectively; and
Interest expense from the amortization of deferred financing costs related to notes payable of approximately $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012.
FFO may also be used to fund all or a portion of certain capitalizable items that are excluded from FFO, such as tenant improvements, building improvements and deferred leasing costs. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, our negative FFO was due to limited operations, as we owned three real estate investments and one real estate-related investment, acquisition fees and expenses and certain fixed operating costs as a public company. We expect FFO to improve as we continue to grow.

Distributions
Until we have fully invested the proceeds of our primary initial public offering, and from time to time during our operational stage, we may not pay distributions solely from our cash flow from operations or FFO, in which case distributions may be paid in whole or in part from debt financing. Distributions declared, distributions paid and cash flows from operations were as follows for the first quarter of 2012 (in thousands, except per share amounts):

(1) 
Distributions for the periods from January 1, 2012 through February 28, 2012 and March 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012 were based on daily record dates and calculated at a rate of $0.00178082 per share per day.
(2) 
Assumes share was issued and outstanding each day during the periods presented.
(3) 
Distributions are paid on a monthly basis. Distributions for all record dates of a given month are paid approximately 15 days following month end.
For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we paid aggregate distributions of $1.8 million, including $1.0 million of distributions paid in cash and $0.8 million of distributions reinvested through our dividend reinvestment plan. FFO for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $(0.7) million and cash flow used in operations was $0.4 million. We funded our total distributions paid, which includes net cash distributions and dividends reinvested by stockholders, with debt financing. See the reconciliation of FFO to net loss above.  
From inception through March 31, 2012, we paid cumulative distributions of $3.5 million and our cumulative net loss during the same period was $4.6 million. To the extent that we pay distributions from sources other than our cash flow from operations, we will have less funds available for investment in properties and other assets, the overall return to our stockholders may be reduced and subsequent investors will experience dilution.
Over the long-term, we expect that a greater percentage of our distributions will be paid from cash flow from operations and FFO (except with respect to distributions related to sales of our assets and distributions related to the repayment of principal under investments we make in mortgage, mezzanine and other loans). However, we expect to have little, if any, cash flow from operations available for distribution until we make substantial investments. During our offering stage, when we may raise capital in our ongoing initial public offering (and possibly future offerings) more quickly than we acquire income-producing assets, and from time to time during our operational stage, we may not pay distributions solely from our cash flow from operations. Further, our operating performance cannot be accurately predicted and may deteriorate in the future due to numerous factors, including those discussed under “Forward-Looking Statements” and “Market Outlook - Real Estate and Real Estate Finance Markets” herein, and the risks discussed in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC and Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Those factors include: the future operating performance of investments we may make in the existing real estate and financial environment; our ability to identify investments that are suitable to execute our investment objectives; the success and economic viability of our tenants; the ability of our borrowers and their sponsors to continue to make their debt service payments and/or to repay their loans upon maturity; our ability to refinance existing indebtedness at comparable terms; changes in interest rates on any variable rate debt obligations we incur; and the level of participation in our dividend reinvestment plan. In the event our FFO and/or cash flow from operations decrease in the future, the level of our distributions may also decrease.  In addition, future distributions declared and paid may exceed FFO and/or cash flow from operations.
Critical Accounting Policies
Our consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with GAAP and in conjunction with the rules and regulations of the SEC. The preparation of our financial statements requires significant management judgments, assumptions and estimates about matters that are inherently uncertain. These judgments affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and our disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. With different estimates or assumptions, materially different amounts could be reported in our financial statements. Additionally, other companies may utilize different estimates that may impact the comparability of our results of operations to those of companies in similar businesses. A discussion of the accounting policies that management considers critical in that they involve significant management judgments, assumptions and estimates is included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the SEC. There have been no significant changes to our policies during 2012.

Subsequent Events
We evaluate subsequent events up until the date the consolidated financial statements are issued.
Status of the Offering
We commenced our ongoing initial public offering of 280,000,000 shares of common stock on October 26, 2010. As of May 4, 2012, we had sold 17,085,233 shares of common stock in our offering for gross offering proceeds of $170.2 million, including 198,267 shares of common stock under our dividend reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $1.9 million. Also as of May 4, 2012, we had redeemed 25,043 of the shares sold in our ongoing initial public offering for $0.3 million.
Distributions Paid
On April 13, 2012, we paid distributions of $0.8 million, which related to distributions declared for each day in the period from March 1, 2012 through March 31, 2012.
Distributions Declared
On May 9, 2012, our board of directors declared distributions based on daily record dates for the period from June 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012, which we expect to pay in July 2012, and distributions based on daily record dates for the period from July 1, 2012 through July 31, 2012, which we expect to pay in August 2012. Investors may choose to receive cash distributions or purchase additional shares through our dividend reinvestment plan.
Distributions for these periods will be calculated based on stockholders of record each day during these periods at a rate of $0.00178082 per share per day and if paid each day for a 365-day period, would equal a 6.5% annualized rate based on a purchase price of $10.00 per share.
Investments and Financings Subsequent to March 31, 2012
Recent Acquisitions and Related Financings
McEwen Building
On April 30, 2012, we, through an indirect wholly owned subsidiary, purchased an office building containing 175,262 rentable square feet located on approximately 10.7 acres of land in Franklin, Tennessee (the “McEwen Building”).  The seller is not affiliated with us or our advisor.  The contractual purchase price of the McEwen Building was approximately $40.0 million plus closing costs.  We funded the acquisition of the McEwen Building with proceeds from the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan (which is described below) and proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering.
The McEwen Building is located at 1550 West McEwen Drive in Franklin, Tennessee and, as of April 30, 2012, was 97% leased to 10 tenants.
Gateway Tech Center
On May 9, 2012, we, through an indirect wholly owned subsidiary (the “Gateway Tech Center Owner”), purchased an office building containing 198,565 rentable square feet located on approximately 9.0 acres of land in Salt Lake City, Utah (“Gateway Tech Center”).  The seller is not affiliated with us or our advisor.  The contractual purchase price of Gateway Tech Center is approximately $30.3 million plus closing costs. We funded the acquisition of Gateway Tech Center with proceeds from the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan (which is described below) and proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering.
Gateway Tech Center is located at 155 North 400 West in Salt Lake City, Utah and as of May 1, 2012, was 92% leased to 16 tenants.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (continued)

U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan
On April 30, 2012, in connection with our acquisition of the McEwen Building, we, through indirect wholly owned subsidiaries, entered into a two-year portfolio loan with U.S. Bank National Association (the “Lender”), an unaffiliated lender, for an amount up to $100.0 million (the “U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan”), of which $40 million is term debt and $60 million is revolving debt. During the term of the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, we have an option to increase the loan amount by up to an additional $100.0 million, 60% of which additional amount would be revolving debt and 40% would be term debt, with the addition of one or more additional properties to secure the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. At the closing of the McEwen Building, we drew $80.7 million, of which $42.5 million was used to repay in full the principal balance outstanding under a one-year bridge loan secured by Domain Gateway and Las Cimas IV. As of April 30, 2012, $19.3 million of revolving debt was available for disbursement under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. On May 9, 2012, in connection with the acquisition of Gateway Tech Center, the Gateway Tech Center Owner became a borrower under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan by adding Gateway Tech Center as additional collateral for the loan. We drew an additional $19.3 million on the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan bringing the total funded amount to $100.0 million as of May 9, 2012. The U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan matures on May 1, 2014, with two one-year extension options, subject to certain conditions contained in the loan agreement. From April 30, 2012 through June 30, 2012, the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan bears interest at a floating rate of 300 basis points over one-month LIBOR. For each subsequent calendar quarter, the interest rate on the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan will be determined by the borrowing base leverage ratio as defined in the loan agreement and will range from 2.0% to 3.0% over one-month LIBOR. Monthly payments are interest only with the entire unpaid principal balance and all outstanding interest and fees due at maturity. We will have the right to prepay all or a portion of the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, subject to certain fees and conditions contained in the loan agreement.
The U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan is secured by Domain Gateway, Las Cimas IV, the McEwen Building and Gateway Tech Center. We and KBS REIT Properties III, LLC, our wholly owned subsidiary (together, the “Guarantors”), are providing a guaranty of up to 50% of the amount outstanding under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan. Additionally, the Guarantors are providing a guaranty of any deficiency, loss or damage suffered by the Lender that may result from certain intentional acts committed by the borrowers under the U.S. Bank Portfolio Loan, or that may result from certain bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings involving the borrowers under the loan, pursuant to the terms of the repayment guaranty.
AIP Fee Reimbursement Agreement
On April 19, 2012, we entered into a fee reimbursement agreement with the dealer manager pursuant to which we agreed to reimburse the dealer manager for certain fees and expenses it incurs for administering our participation in the DTCC Alternative Investment Product Platform (the “AIP Platform”) with respect to certain accounts of our investors serviced through the AIP Platform.

PART I. FINANCIAL INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

We are exposed to the effects of interest rate changes as a result of borrowings used to maintain liquidity and to fund the acquisition, expansion and refinancing of our real estate investment portfolio and operations. We are also exposed to the effects of changes in interest rates as a result of the acquisition and origination of mortgage, mezzanine, bridge and other loans. Our profitability and the value of our investment portfolio may be adversely affected during any period as a result of interest rate changes. Our interest rate risk management objectives are to limit the impact of interest rate changes on earnings, prepayment penalties and cash flows and to lower overall borrowing costs. We may manage interest rate risk by maintaining a ratio of fixed rate, long-term debt such that floating rate exposure is kept at an acceptable level. In addition, we may utilize a variety of financial instruments, including interest rate caps, floors, and swap agreements, in order to limit the effects of changes in interest rates on our operations. When we use these types of derivatives to hedge the risk of interest-earning assets or interest-bearing liabilities, we may be subject to certain risks, including the risk that losses on a hedge position will reduce the funds available for payments to holders of our common stock and that the losses may exceed the amount we invested in the instruments.
We expect to borrow funds and make investments at a combination of fixed and variable rates. Interest rate fluctuations will generally not affect future earnings or cash flows on fixed rate debt or fixed rate real estate loans receivable unless such instruments mature or are otherwise terminated. However, interest rate changes will affect the fair value of fixed rate instruments. As of March 31, 2012, the fair value and carrying value of our fixed rate real estate loan receivable was $11.2 million and $11.4 million, respectively. The fair value estimate of our real estate loan receivable is estimated using an internal valuation model that considers the expected cash flows for the loan, underlying collateral value and the estimated yield requirements of institutional investors for loans with similar characteristics, including remaining loan term, loan-to-value, type of collateral and other credit enhancements. As we expect to hold our fixed rate instrument to maturity and the amounts due under such instrument would be limited to the outstanding principal balance and any accrued and unpaid interest, we do not expect that fluctuations in interest rates, and the resulting change in fair value of our fixed rate instrument, would have a significant impact on our operations. At March 31, 2012, we did not have any fixed rate debt outstanding.
Conversely, movements in interest rates on variable rate debt and loans receivable would change future earnings and cash flows, but not significantly affect the fair value of those instruments. However, changes in required risk premiums would result in changes in the fair value of floating rate instruments. As of March 31, 2012, we were exposed to market risks related to fluctuations in interest rates on $102.5 million of variable rate debt outstanding. Based on interest rates as of March 31, 2012, if interest rates were 100 basis points higher during the 12 months ending March 31, 2013, interest expense on our variable rate debt would increase by $1.0 million. As of March 31, 2012, one-month LIBOR was 0.24125% and if this index was reduced to 0% during the 12 months ending March 31, 2013, interest expense on our variable rate debt would decrease by $0.2 million. As of March 31, 2012, we did not own any variable rate real estate-related investments.
The annual effective interest rate of our fixed rate real estate loan receivable as of March 31, 2012 was 7.5%. The effective interest rate represents the effective interest rate as of March 31, 2012, using the interest method, that we use to recognize interest income on our real estate loan receivable. The interest rate of our variable rate debt as of March 31, 2012 was 2.5%.  The interest rate represents the actual interest rate in effect as of March 31, 2012 (consisting of the contractual interest rate), using interest rate indices as of March 31, 2012 where applicable.
Item 4. Controls and Procedures
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As of the end of the period covered by this report, management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon, and as of the date of, the evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that the disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file and submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported as and when required. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file and submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and our chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 1A. Risk Factors
Please see the risks discussed in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and the risks identified in Pre-Effective Amendment No.1 to Post-Effective Amendment No. 6 to our Registration Statement (file no. 333-164703), filed with the SEC on April 20, 2012.
The following risk factor supplements these previously disclosed risks.
We have paid distributions from financings and expect that in the future we may not pay distributions solely from our cash flow from operations. To the extent that we pay distributions from sources other than our cash flow from operations, we will have less funds available for investment in properties and other assets, the overall return to our stockholders may be reduced and subsequent investors will experience dilution.
Our organizational documents permit us to pay distributions from any source, including offering proceeds or borrowings (both of which may constitute a return of capital). We have paid distributions from financings and expect that in the future we may not pay distributions solely from our cash flow from operations, in which case distributions may be paid in whole or in part from debt financing. We may also fund such distributions from the sale of assets or from the maturity, payoff or settlement of debt investments. To the extent that we pay distributions from sources other than our cash flow from operations, we will have fewer funds available for investment in real estate properties and real estate-related investments, the overall return to our stockholders may be reduced and subsequent investors will experience dilution. We expect to have little, if any, cash flow from operations available for distribution until we make substantial investments. In addition, to the extent distributions exceed cash flow from operations, a stockholder's basis in our stock will be reduced and, to the extent distributions exceed a stockholder's basis, the stockholder may recognize capital gain. There is no limit on the amount of distributions we may fund from sources other than from cash flows from operations.
For the year ended December 31, 2011, we paid aggregate distributions of $1.7 million, including $0.9 million of distributions paid in cash and $0.7 million of distributions reinvested through our dividend reinvestment plan. We funded 100% of total distributions paid for the year ended December 31, 2011, which includes cash distributions and dividends reinvested by stockholders, with debt financing. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we paid aggregate distributions of $1.8 million, including $1.0 million of distributions paid in cash and $0.8 million of distributions reinvested through our dividend reinvestment plan. We funded 100% of total distributions paid for the three months ended March 31, 2012, which includes cash distributions and dividends reinvested by stockholders, with debt financing.
Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds
a)
During the period covered by this Form 10-Q, we did not sell any equity securities that were not registered under the Securities Act of 1933.
b)
On October 26, 2010, our Registration Statement on Form S-11 (File No. 333-164703), covering a public offering of up to 200,000,000 shares of common stock in our primary offering and 80,000,000 shares of common stock under our dividend reinvestment plan, was declared effective under the Securities Act of 1933. We commenced our initial public offering on October 26, 2010 upon retaining KBS Capital Markets Group, an affiliate of our advisor, as the dealer manager of our offering. We are offering 200,000,000 shares of common stock in our primary offering at an aggregate offering price of up to $2.0 billion, or $10.00 per share with discounts available to certain categories of purchasers. The 80,000,000 shares offered under our dividend reinvestment plan are initially being offered at an aggregate offering price of $760.0 million, or $9.50 per share. We expect to sell the shares registered in our primary offering over a two-year period. If we have not sold all of the shares within two years, we may continue our primary offering until October 26, 2013. Under rules promulgated by the SEC, in some circumstances we could continue our primary offering until as late as April 24, 2014. We may sell shares under our dividend reinvestment plan beyond the termination of the primary offering until we have sold all the shares under the plan.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION (CONTINUED)
Item 2.    Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds (continued)

As of March 31, 2012, we had sold 15,338,869 shares of common stock in our ongoing initial public offering for gross offering proceeds of $152.7 million, including 161,135 shares of common stock under our dividend reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $1.5 million. As of March 31, 2012, we had incurred selling commissions, dealer manager fees and organization and other offering costs in the amounts set forth below. We pay selling commissions and dealer manager fees to KBS Capital Markets Group, and KBS Capital Markets Group reallows all selling commissions and a portion of the dealer manager fees to participating broker-dealers. In addition, we reimburse KBS Capital Advisors and KBS Capital Markets Group for certain offering expenses as described in our prospectus, as amended and supplemented.

From the commencement of our ongoing initial public offering through March 31, 2012, the net offering proceeds to us, after deducting the total expenses incurred as described above, were approximately $132.7 million, including net offering proceeds from our dividend reinvestment plan of $1.5 million.
We expect to use substantially all of the net proceeds from our ongoing initial public offering to invest in and manage a diverse portfolio of real estate and real estate-related investments. We expect to use substantially all of the net proceeds from the sale of shares under our dividend reinvestment plan for general corporate purposes, including, but not limited to, the redemption of shares under our share redemption program; capital expenditures, tenant improvement costs and leasing costs related to our investments in real estate properties; reserves required by any financings of our investments in real estate properties; funding obligations under any of our real estate loans receivable; investments in real estate properties and real estate-related assets; and the repayment of debt.
As of March 31, 2012, we had used the net proceeds from our initial public offering and debt financing to invest $210.0 million in three real estate properties and one real estate-related investment, including $2.8 million of acquisition fees and closing costs and origination fees and expenses.
c)
We have adopted a share redemption program that may enable stockholders to sell their shares to us in limited circumstances.
Pursuant to the share redemption program, there are several limitations on our ability to redeem shares:
Unless the shares are being redeemed in connection with a stockholder’s death, “qualifying disability” or “determination of incompetence” (each as defined under the share redemption program), we may not redeem shares until the stockholder has held his or her shares for one year. 
During each calendar year, the share redemption program limits the number of shares we may redeem to those that we could purchase with the amount of the net proceeds from the issuance of shares under our dividend reinvestment plan during the prior calendar year.
During any calendar year, we may redeem no more than 5% of the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the prior calendar year.
We have no obligation to redeem shares if the redemption would violate the restrictions on distributions under Maryland law, which prohibits distributions that would cause a corporation to fail to meet statutory tests of solvency.
We may amend, suspend or terminate the program upon 30 days’ notice to our stockholders. We may provide this notice by including such information in a Current Report on Form 8-K or in our annual or quarterly reports, all publicly filed with the SEC, or by a separate mailing to our stockholders.

_____________________
(1) We announced the adoption and commencement of the program on October 14, 2010.
(2) Pursuant to the program, we will initially redeem shares as follows:
The lower of $9.25 or 92.5% of the price paid to acquire the shares from us for stockholders who have held their shares for at least one year;
The lower of $9.50 or 95.0% of the price paid to acquire the shares from us for stockholders who have held their shares for at least two years;
The lower of $9.75 or 97.5% of the price paid to acquire the shares from us for stockholders who have held their shares for at least three years; and
The lower of $10.00 or 100% of the price paid to acquire the shares from us for stockholders who have held their shares for at least four years.
Notwithstanding the above, the redemption price for redemptions sought upon a stockholder’s death, “qualifying disability” or “determination of incompetence” will initially be the amount paid to acquire the shares from us. Furthermore, once we establish an estimated value per share of our common stock that is not based on the price to acquire a share in our primary offering or follow-on public offerings, the redemption price per share for all stockholders will be equal to the estimated value per share, as determined by our advisor or another firm chosen for that purpose. We currently expect to establish an estimated value per share after the completion of our offering stage. We will consider our offering stage complete when we are no longer publicly offering equity securities - whether through our initial public offering or follow-on public offerings - and have not done so for up to 18 months. We currently expect to update the estimated value per share every 12 to 18 months thereafter and will report such estimated values to you in our annual report, our quarterly reports, or in a current report on Form 8-K, as appropriate. We will also provide information about our estimated value per share on our web site (such information may be provided by means of a link to our public filings on the SEC’s web site, http://www.sec.gov). “Public equity offering” for this purpose does not include offerings on behalf of selling stockholders or offerings related to a dividend reinvestment plan, employee benefit plan or the redemption of interests in the Operating Partnership.
(3) We limit the dollar value of shares that may be redeemed under the program as described above. During the three months ended March 31, 2012, we redeemed $0.2 million of shares of common stock, which represented all redemption requests received in good order and eligible for redemption through the March 2012 redemption date. Based on the amount of net proceeds raised from the sale of shares under our dividend reinvestment plan during 2011 and redemptions through March 31, 2012, we may redeem up to $0.6 million of shares for the remainder of 2012.
