Fourth Quarter 2012 Distributions
With the authorization of its board of directors, Hines Global REIT, Inc. ("Hines Global") declared distributions for the months of October - December 2012. These distributions will be calculated based on stockholders of record each day from October through December 2012 in an amount equal to $0.0017808 per share, per day. Distributions will be paid on the first business day following the completion of each month to which they relate. All distributions will be paid in cash or reinvested in stock for those participating in the distribution reinvestment plan.

Such statements are based on current expectations and assumptions with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions that may prove incorrect or inaccurate. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward looking statements include the risks associated with Hines Global's ability to pay distributions to its stockholders and the sources of such distribution payments, Hines Global's ability to locate and make suitable investments, and other risks described in the “Risk Factors” section of Hines Global’s Registration Statement on Form S-11, its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 and its other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
