COLE CREDIT PROPERTY TRUST, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2012
NOTE 1 — ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS
Cole Credit Property Trust, Inc. (the “Company”) is a Maryland corporation that was formed on March 29, 2004, which has elected to be taxed, and currently qualifies, as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) for federal income tax purposes. Substantially all of the Company’s business is conducted through Cole Operating Partnership I, LP (“Cole OP I”), a Delaware limited partnership. The Company is the sole general partner of and owns a 99.99% partnership interest in Cole OP I. Cole REIT Advisors, LLC (“Cole Advisors”), the advisor to the Company, is the sole limited partner and owner of an insignificant noncontrolling partnership interest of less than 0.01% of Cole OP I.
As of September 30, 2012, the Company owned 36 properties comprising 934,000 square feet of single-tenant retail and commercial space located in 17 states. As of September 30, 2012, these properties were 100% leased.
The Company’s stock is not currently listed on a national exchange. The Company may seek to list its shares of common stock for trading on a national securities exchange only if the board of directors of the Company believes listing would be in the best interest of its stockholders. The Company does not intend to list its shares of common stock at this time. The Company does not anticipate that there would be any market for its common stock until its shares are listed on a national securities exchange. In the event the Company does not obtain listing prior to February 1, 2016, its charter requires that it either: (1) seek stockholder approval of an extension or amendment of this listing deadline; or (2) seek stockholder approval to adopt a plan of liquidation.
NOTE 2 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC, including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X, and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the statements for the interim periods presented include all adjustments, which are of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for such periods. Results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of full year results. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011 and related notes thereto set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
The condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Investment in and Valuation of Real Estate and Related Assets
The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate that the carrying amounts of its real estate and related assets may not be recoverable. Impairment indicators that the Company considers include, but are not limited to, bankruptcy or other credit concerns of a property’s major tenant, such as a history of late payments, rental concessions and other factors, a significant decrease in a property’s revenues due to lease terminations, vacancies, co-tenancy clauses, reduced lease rates or other circumstances. When indicators of potential impairment are present, the Company assesses the recoverability of the assets by determining whether the carrying amount of the assets will be recovered through the undiscounted future cash flows expected from the use of the assets and their eventual disposition. In the event that such expected undiscounted future cash flows do not exceed the carrying amount, the Company will adjust the real estate and related assets to their respective fair values and recognize an impairment loss. Generally, fair value is determined using a discounted cash flow analysis and recent comparable sales transactions.

COLE CREDIT PROPERTY TRUST, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)
September 30, 2012


The Company continues to monitor one property with a book value of $4.0 million for which it has identified impairment indicators and assessed the recoverability of the carrying amount of the property. For this property, the undiscounted future cash flows expected as a result of the use of the real estate and related assets and the eventual disposition of the asset continued to exceed its carrying amount as of September 30, 2012. Should the conditions related to this property, or any of the Company’s other properties, change, the underlying assumptions used to determine the expected undiscounted future cash flows may change and adversely affect the recoverability of the respective real estate and related assets’ carrying amounts. No impairment losses related to continuing operations were recorded during each of the nine months ended September 30, 2012 or 2011.
When developing estimates of expected future cash flows, the Company makes certain assumptions regarding future market rental income amounts subsequent to the expiration of current lease agreements, property operating expenses, terminal capitalization and discount rates, the expected number of months it takes to re-lease the property, required tenant improvements and the number of years the property will be held for investment. The use of alternative assumptions in estimating expected future cash flows could result in a different determination of the property’s expected future cash flows and a different conclusion regarding the existence of an impairment, the extent of such loss, if any, as well as the fair value of the real estate and related assets.
When a real estate asset is identified by the Company as held for sale, the Company ceases depreciation and amortization of the assets related to the property and estimates the fair value, net of selling costs. If, in management’s opinion, the fair value, net of selling costs of the asset, is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an adjustment to the carrying amount would be recorded to reflect the estimated fair value of the property, net of selling costs. There were no assets identified as held for sale as of September 30, 2012 or December 31, 2011.
Discontinued Operations
Upon the disposal of a real estate asset or the determination of a real estate asset as being held for sale, the Company determines if the asset is considered a component of the Company. A component is comprised of operations and cash flows that can clearly be distinguished, operationally and for financial reporting purposes, from the rest of the Company. If the asset is considered a component of the Company, the results of operations and gains or losses on the sale of the component are required to be presented in discontinued operations if both of the following criteria are met: (1) the operations and cash flows of the asset have been (or will be) eliminated from the ongoing operations of the Company as a result of the disposal transaction and (2) the Company will not have any significant continuing involvement in the operations of the asset after the disposal transaction. Also, the prior period results of operations for the asset are reclassified and presented in discontinued operations in the prior consolidated statements of operations.
Restricted Cash
As of September 30, 2012, $1.6 million was included in restricted cash, which was held by lenders in escrow accounts primarily for tenant and capital improvements, leasing commissions and repairs and maintenance for certain properties, in accordance with the respective lender’s loan agreement. In addition, as of September 30, 2012, the Company had $63,000 in restricted cash held by lenders in a lockbox account. As part of certain debt agreements, rents from the encumbered properties are deposited directly into a lockbox account, from which the monthly debt service payment is disbursed to the lender and the excess funds are disbursed to the Company.
Redemptions of Common Stock
In accordance with the Company’s share redemption program, the purchase price paid for redeemed shares will equal the lesser of (1) the price actually paid for those shares or (2) either (i) $8.50 per share or (ii) 90.0% of the net asset value per share as determined by the Company’s board of directors. Therefore, the share redemption price would be $7.16 per share based on the most recently disclosed estimated value of $7.95 per share as determined by the Company’s board of directors, as of December 31, 2011. However, the Company’s share redemption program provides that the Company’s board of directors must determine at the beginning of each fiscal year the maximum amount of shares that the Company may redeem during that year. The Company’s board of directors determined that no amounts are to be made available for redemption during the year ending December 31, 2012.
Reclassifications
Certain prior year balances have been reclassified in the condensed consolidated unaudited statement of operations to conform with the current year presentation of general and administrative expenses, property operating expenses and discontinued operations.

New Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2011, the U.S. Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-05, Presentation of Comprehensive Income (“ASU 2011-05”), which requires the presentation of comprehensive income in either (1) a continuous statement of comprehensive income or (2) two separate but consecutive statements. ASU 2011-05 became effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2011-05 did not have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements or disclosures because the Company's net income equals its comprehensive income.
NOTE 3 — FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
GAAP defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and requires disclosures about fair value measurements. GAAP emphasizes that fair value is intended to be a market-based measurement, as opposed to a transaction-specific measurement.
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Depending on the nature of the asset or liability, various techniques and assumptions can be used to estimate the fair value. Assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from three levels of the fair value hierarchy, as follows:
Level 1 – Inputs are quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date. An active market is defined as a market in which transactions for the assets or liabilities occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
Level 2 – Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active (markets with few transactions), inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (i.e., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).
Level 3 – Unobservable inputs, which are only used to the extent that observable inputs are not available, reflect the Company’s assumptions about the pricing of an asset or liability.
The following describes the methods the Company uses to estimate the fair value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities:
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash – The Company considers the carrying values of these financial assets to approximate fair value because of the short period of time between their origination and their expected realization.
Notes payable and lines of credit – The fair value is estimated by discounting the expected cash flows based on estimated borrowing rates available to the Company as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011. The estimated fair value of the notes payable was $83.7 million as of September 30, 2012, as compared to the carrying value of $80.5 million. The estimated fair value of the notes payable and the lines of credit with an affiliate was $106.1 million and $2.0 million, respectively, as of December 31, 2011, as compared to the carrying value of $103.5 million and $1.9 million, respectively. The fair value of the Company’s notes payable and lines of credit is estimated using Level 2 inputs.
Considerable judgment is necessary to develop estimated fair values of financial assets and liabilities. Accordingly, the estimates presented herein are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize, or be liable for on disposition of the financial assets and liabilities.
NOTE 4 — DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS
During the three months ended September 30, 2012, the Company sold five properties (the "2012 Property Dispositions") for an aggregate sales price of $23.0 million. Upon completion of the sales, $14.9 million in loans collateralized by these properties were assumed by the respective buyers. No disposition fees were paid to Cole Advisors or its affiliates in connection with the 2012 Property Dispositions.
The 2012 Property Dispositions resulted in net cash proceeds of $7.3 million and a gain of $3.7 million. Revenue related to the 2012 Property Dispositions was $177,000 and $997,000, respectively, for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. Revenue related to the 2012 Property Dispositions was $410,000 and $1.2 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively. Results of the 2012 Property Dispositions have been presented as discontinued operations in the Company's condensed consolidated unaudited statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30,

2012 and 2011. Subsequent to the 2012 Property Dispositions, the Company had no continuing involvement with the properties.
As of the respective closing dates of the 2012 Property Dispositions, the major classes of assets and liabilities of these properties included net total investment in real estate assets of $18.5 million and mortgage notes payable of $14.9 million. In connection with the 2012 Property Dispositions, $90,000 of deferred financing costs were written off as a reduction in the gain on sale.
On December 15, 2011, the Company sold a property for a gross sales price of $19.1 million, resulting in net cash proceeds of $4.5 million and a gain of $1.6 million. Therefore, no revenue related to this property was recorded for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. Revenue related to this property for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $397,000 and $1.2 million, respectively. The property’s results have been presented as discontinued operations on the Company’s condensed consolidated unaudited statements of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011. Subsequent to the sale of the property, the Company had no continuing involvement with the property.
NOTE 5 — NOTES PAYABLE AND LINES OF CREDIT
As of September 30, 2012, the Company had $80.5 million outstanding in mortgage notes payable, with fixed interest rates ranging from 5.27% to 6.96% and a weighted average interest rate of 6.54%. These borrowings mature on various dates from March 2013 through September 2017, and have a weighted average remaining term of 2.8 years. In addition, as of September 30, 2012, the Company had no amounts outstanding on its two lines of credit with affiliates of Cole Advisors, which had total available borrowings of $2.9 million. Each of the lines of credit matures on March 31, 2013 and bears a fixed rate of 5.75%. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company repaid $8.1 million of mortgage notes payable, including monthly payments, and $1.9 million of lines of credit with affiliates. In addition, the mortgage notes payable secured by the 2012 Property Dispositions, totaling $14.9 million, were assumed by the respective buyers.
Each of the mortgage notes payable and lines of credit are secured by the respective properties and their related leases on which the debt was placed. The mortgage notes and lines of credit are generally non-recourse to the Company and Cole OP I, but both are liable for customary non-recourse carve-outs. The mortgage notes payable and lines of credit contain customary default provisions. Generally, upon the occurrence of an event of default, interest on the mortgage notes will accrue at an annual default interest rate equal to the lesser of (1) the maximum rate permitted by applicable law, or (2) the then-current interest rate plus a percentage specified in the respective loan agreement. Certain mortgage notes payable contain customary affirmative, negative and financial covenants, such as requirements for minimum net worth, debt service coverage ratios, limitations on leverage ratios and variable rate debt. Based on the Company’s analysis and review of its results and related requirements, the Company believes it was in compliance with the covenants of such mortgage notes payable as of September 30, 2012.
During 2011, the Company elected to extend the maturity date of one mortgage note from June 2011 to June 2031, in accordance with the hyper-amortization provisions of the mortgage note. The Company repaid in full, without premium or penalty, the remaining $4.3 million outstanding balance of this mortgage note during the three months ended September 30, 2012. During the hyper-amortization period, the lender applied 100% of the rents collected from the property collateralizing the note to the following items in the order indicated: (1) payment of accrued interest at the original fixed interest rate, (2) all payments for escrow or reserve accounts, (3) any operating expenses of the property pursuant to an approved annual budget and (4) any extraordinary operating or capital expenses. The balance of the rents collected were applied to the following items in such order as the lender may determine: (1) any other amounts due in accordance with the loan document, (2) the reduction of the principal balance of the mortgage note, and (3) interest accrued at the “Revised Interest Rate” but not previously paid. As used herein, the Revised Interest Rate means an interest rate equal to the greater of (i) the initial fixed interest rate as stated in the loan agreement plus 2.0% per annum or (ii) the then current Treasury Constant Maturity Yield Index plus 2.0% per annum. The Revised Interest Rate on the mortgage note discussed above during the extended maturity period was 8.68%. Certain other mortgage notes of the Company allow for the maturity date to be extended by 20 years and have similar hyper-amortization provisions that would apply in the event of an extension of their maturity dates.

Pursuant to a waiver of the fee by Cole Advisors, no asset management fees were incurred by the Company during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 or 2011. The Company is not obligated to pay any amounts for such periods. However, Cole Advisors may elect to charge asset management fees in future periods up to the 0.25% fee.
If Cole Advisors, or its affiliates, provides a substantial amount of services, as determined by the Company, in connection with the sale of one or more properties, the Company will pay Cole Advisors an amount up to 3% of the contract price of each asset sold.

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. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, among others, changes in general economic conditions, changes in real estate conditions, construction costs that may exceed estimates, construction delays, increases in interest rates, lease-up risks, rent relief, inability to obtain new tenants upon the expiration or termination of existing leases, inability to obtain financing or refinance existing debt and the potential need to fund tenant improvements or other capital expenditures out of operating cash flows.
Management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires our management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On a regular basis, we evaluate these estimates. These estimates are based on management’s historical industry experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates.
Overview
We were formed on March 29, 2004, to acquire and operate commercial real estate primarily consisting of net leased, freestanding, single tenant, income-generating retail and commercial properties located throughout the United States. We have no paid employees and are externally advised and managed by our advisor. We elected to be taxed, and currently qualify, as a REIT for federal income tax purposes.
As of September 30, 2012, we owned 36 properties, which were 100% leased, comprising 934,000 square feet of single-tenant retail and commercial space located in 17 states. We may dispose of properties and reinvest the net sales proceeds from property dispositions in additional properties, or use net sales proceeds to pay down existing debt, or distribute the net proceeds to our stockholders.
Our operating results and cash flows are primarily influenced by rental income from our commercial properties and interest expense on our property secured indebtedness. Rental and other property income accounted for 97% of total revenue during each of the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. As 100% of our properties are under lease, with a weighted average remaining lease term of 7.0 years, we believe our exposure to changes in commercial rental rates on our portfolio is substantially mitigated, except for vacancies caused by tenant bankruptcies or other factors. Our advisor regularly monitors the creditworthiness of our tenants by reviewing the tenant’s financial results, credit rating agency reports (if any) on the tenant or guarantor, the operating history of the property with such tenant, the tenant’s market share and track record within its industry segment, the general health and outlook of the tenant’s industry segment, and other information for changes and

14


possible trends. If our advisor identifies significant changes or trends that may adversely affect the creditworthiness of a tenant, it will gather a more in-depth knowledge of the tenant’s financial condition and, if necessary, attempt to mitigate the tenant credit risk by evaluating the possible sale of the property, or identifying a possible replacement tenant should the current tenant fail to perform on the lease.
As of September 30, 2012, the debt leverage ratio of our portfolio, which is the ratio of debt to total gross real estate assets net of gross intangible lease liabilities, was 50.5%. All of our debt is subject to fixed interest rates, ranging from 5.27% to 6.96%, with a weighted average interest rate of 6.54% and a weighted average remaining term of 2.8 years. As we have no outstanding variable rate debt, our exposure to short-term changes in interest rates is limited. However, we will be subject to changes in interest rates as we refinance our debt when it matures. See our contractual obligations table in the section captioned “Liquidity and Capital Resources—Long-term Liquidity and Capital Resources.”
Recent Market Conditions
Beginning in late 2007, domestic and international financial markets experienced significant disruptions that were brought about in large part by challenges in the world-wide banking system. These disruptions severely impacted the availability of credit and contributed to rising costs associated with obtaining credit. Since 2010, the volume of mortgage lending for commercial real estate has been increasing and lending terms have improved and they continue to improve; however, such lending activity continues to be significantly less than previous levels. Although lending market conditions have improved, certain factors continue to negatively affect the lending environment, including the sovereign credit issues of certain countries in the European Union. We have experienced, and may continue to experience more stringent lending criteria, which may affect our ability to finance certain property acquisitions or refinance our debt at maturity. For properties for which we are able to obtain financing, the interest rates and other terms on such loans may be unacceptable. Additionally, if we are able to refinance our existing debt as it matures, it may be at lower leverage levels or at rates and terms which are less favorable than our existing debt or, if we elect to extend the maturity dates of the mortgage notes in accordance with the hyper-amortization provisions, the interest rates charged to us will be higher, each of which may adversely affect our results of operations and the distribution rate we are able to pay to our investors. If we are required to sell any of our properties to meet our liquidity requirements or for any reason, such sale will result in lower rental revenue and may be at a price less than our acquisition price for the property, each of which would adversely impact our results of operations and the distributions we are able to pay our investors.
The economic downturn led to high unemployment rates and a decline in consumer spending. These economic trends have adversely impacted the retail and real estate markets by causing higher tenant vacancies, declining rental rates and declining property values. In 2011 and through September 30, 2012, the economy improved and continues to show signs of recovery. Additionally, the real estate markets have experienced an improvement in property values, occupancy and rental rates; however, in many markets property values, occupancy and rental rates continue to be below those previously experienced before the economic downturn. As of September 30, 2012, 100% of our rentable square feet was leased. However, if the recent improvements in economic conditions do not continue, we may experience significant vacancies or be required to reduce rental rates on occupied space. If we do experience significant vacancies, our advisor will actively seek to lease our vacant space, however, such space may be leased at lower rental rates and for shorter lease terms than previously experienced. In addition, as many retailers and other tenants have been delaying or eliminating their store expansion plans, the amount of time required to re-lease a property may increase as a result.
Results of Operations
Three Months Ended September 30, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2011
Revenue - Revenue remained constant at $3.2 million for each of the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

The increase was primarily due to an increase in license and other fees for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Our primary general and administrative expense items are insurance, legal and accounting fees, transfer agent fees and license and other fees.
Property Operating Expenses - Property operating expenses remained relatively constant at $182,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $178,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

See further discussion in Note 5 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements.
Income from Discontinued Operations - Income from discontinued operations increased $3.6 million to $3.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $68,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was due to the gain on the sale of five properties during the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to no property sales during the three months ended September 30, 2011. See further discussion in Note 4 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements.

See further discussion in Note 4 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements.
Funds From Operations
Funds from Operations (“FFO”) is a non-GAAP financial performance measure defined by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts (“NAREIT”) and widely recognized by investors and analysts as one measure of operating performance of a real estate company. The FFO calculation excludes items such as real estate depreciation and amortization, gains and losses on the sale of depreciable real estate and impairment of depreciable real estate. Depreciation and amortization as applied 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, it is management’s view, and we believe the view of many industry investors and analysts, that the presentation of operating results for real estate companies by using the cost accounting method alone is insufficient. In addition, FFO excludes gains and losses from the sale of depreciable real estate and impairment charges on depreciable real estate, which we believe provides management and investors with a helpful additional measure of the performance of our real estate portfolio, as it allows for comparisons, year to year, that reflect the impact on operations from trends in items such as occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, general and administrative

16


expenses and interest costs. Impairment charges are items that management believes that the impact of these items will be reflected over time through changes in rental income or other related costs. We compute FFO in accordance with NAREIT’s definition.
For all of these reasons, we believe FFO, in addition to net income and cash flows from operating activities, as defined by GAAP, are helpful supplemental performance measures and useful in understanding the various ways in which our management evaluates the performance of our real estate portfolio over time. However, not all REITs calculate FFO the same way, so comparisons with other REITs may not be meaningful. FFO should not be considered an alternative to net income or to cash flows from operating activities, and is not intended to be used as a liquidity measure indicative of cash flow available to fund our cash needs.
Our calculation of FFO and reconciliation to net income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is presented in the table below for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 (in thousands):

Set forth below is additional information that may be helpful in assessing our operating results:

In order to recognize revenues on a straight-line basis over the terms of the respective leases, we recorded reductions to rental income of $13,000 and $38,000 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, we recorded additional rental income of $25,000 and $110,000, respectively.

Amortization of deferred financing costs totaled $127,000 and $388,000 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively, and $137,000 and $415,000 during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively.
Distributions
Our board of directors authorized a daily distribution, based on 366 days in the calendar year, of $0.0013663180 per share (which equates to an annualized rate of 5% based on an assumed share price of $10 per share, or 6.29% based on the most recent estimated value of $7.95 per share), for stockholders of record as of the close of business on each day of the period, commencing on January 1, 2012 and ending on December 31, 2012.
During each of the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, we paid distributions of $3.8 million. Our distributions for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 were funded with net cash provided by operations of $3.3 million and excess cash provided by operations from previous periods of $500,000. Our distributions for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 were fully funded with net cash provided by operations of $4.2 million.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Short-term Liquidity and Capital Resources
On a short-term basis, our principal demands for funds will be for operating expenses, distributions to stockholders and interest and principal on current and any future debt financings. We expect to meet our short-term liquidity requirements through net cash provided by operations. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we elected to extend the maturity date on one of our lines of credit with affiliates of our advisor with available borrowings of $1.9 million from March 2012 to March 2013.


17


Long-term Liquidity and Capital Resources
We expect to meet our long-term liquidity requirements through proceeds from available borrowings under our revolving lines of credit, secured or unsecured financing or refinancings from banks and other lenders, the selective and strategic sale of properties and net cash flows from operations. We expect that our primary uses of capital will be for the payment of operating expenses, including debt service payments and debt maturities on our outstanding indebtedness, for the payment of tenant improvements, leasing commissions and repairs and maintenance, for the possible reinvestment of proceeds from the strategic sale of properties in replacement properties and for the payment of distributions to our stockholders, including special distributions of the net proceeds from the sale of properties. We did not have any material commitments for capital or leasing expenditures outstanding as of September 30, 2012.
We expect that substantially all cash flows from operations will be used to pay distributions to our stockholders after payments of principal and interest on our outstanding indebtedness and certain capital or leasing expenditures are paid; however, we may use other sources to fund distributions, as necessary, such as proceeds from available borrowings under our revolving lines of credit. To the extent that cash flows from operations are lower than our current expectations due to lower returns on the properties, distributions paid to our stockholders may be reduced.
As of September 30, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $2.1 million, which we expect to be used primarily to pay operating expenses, interest on our indebtedness and stockholder distributions. In addition, we had restricted cash of $1.7 million held by lenders in escrow accounts for tenant and capital improvements, leasing commissions, repairs and maintenance and other lender reserves for certain properties.
As of September 30, 2012, we had $80.5 million of fixed rate debt outstanding. The outstanding debt is subject to fixed interest rates ranging from 5.27% to 6.96%, with a weighted average interest rate of 6.54%, and matures on various dates from March 31, 2013 through September 1, 2017. Our debt leverage ratio, which is the ratio of debt to total gross real estate assets, net of gross intangible lease liabilities, was 50.5%, with a weighted average remaining term to maturity of 2.8 years.

Cash Flow Analysis
Operating Activities. Net cash provided by operating activities decreased $926,000 to $3.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $4.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The change was primarily due to a decrease in the change in accounts payable and accrued expenses and deferred rent of $643,000 and a decrease in depreciation and amortization expense of $442,000 related to the 2012 Property Dispositions, offset by an increase in income from continuing operations of $203,000. See “—Results of Operations” for a more complete discussion of the factors impacting our operating performance.
Investing Activities. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, net cash provided by investing activities was $7.1 million compared to net cash used in investing activities of $445,000, resulting in a change of $7.5 million. The change was primarily due to the proceeds from sale of real estate assets of $7.4 million, related to the 2012 Property Dispositions, compared to no dispositions in the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
Financing Activities. Net cash used in financing activities increased $9.5 million to $13.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $4.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to the repayment of notes payable and a line of credit with an affiliate of $10.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to $521,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Election as a REIT
We are taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. To maintain our qualification as a REIT, we must continue to meet certain requirements relating to our organization, sources of income, nature of assets, distributions of income to our stockholders and recordkeeping. As a REIT, we generally are not subject to federal income tax on taxable income that we distribute to our stockholders so long as we distribute at least 90% of our annual taxable income (computed without regard to the dividends paid deduction and excluding net capital gains).
If we fail to maintain our qualification as a REIT for any reason in a taxable year and applicable relief provisions do not apply, we will be subject to tax, including any applicable alternative minimum tax, on our taxable income at regular corporate rates. We will not be able to deduct distributions paid to our stockholders in any year in which we fail to maintain our qualification as a REIT. We also will be disqualified for the four taxable years following the year during which qualification was lost unless we are entitled to relief under specific statutory provisions. Such an event could materially adversely affect our net income and net cash available for distribution to stockholders. However, we believe that we are organized and operate in such a manner as to maintain our qualification as a REIT for federal income tax purposes. No provision for federal income taxes has been made in our accompanying condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements. We are subject to certain state and local taxes related to the operations of properties in certain locations, which have been provided for in our accompanying condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Our accounting policies have been established to conform to GAAP. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires us to use judgment in the application of accounting policies, including making estimates and assumptions. These judgments affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. If our judgment or interpretation of the facts and circumstances relating to the various transactions had been different, it is possible that different accounting policies would have been applied, thus, resulting in a different presentation of the financial statements. Additionally, other companies may utilize different estimates that may impact comparability of our results of operations to those of companies in similar businesses. We consider our critical accounting policies to be the following:

Investment in and Valuation of Real Estate and Related Assets;
Allocation of Purchase Price of Real Estate and Related Assets;
Discontinued Operations;
Sale of Real Estate Assets;
Revenue Recognition; and
Income Taxes.
A complete description of such policies and our considerations is contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, and our critical accounting policies have not changed during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011, and related notes thereto.
Commitments and Contingencies
We may be subject to certain commitments and contingencies with regard to certain transactions. Refer to Note 6 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further explanations.
Related-Party Transactions and Agreements
We have entered into agreements with Cole Advisors and its affiliates, whereby we have incurred debt, or have paid, and may continue to pay, certain fees to, or reimburse certain expenses of, Cole Advisors or its affiliates for acquisition and advisory fees and expenses, financing coordination fees, asset and property management fees, disposition fees, interest expense on affiliate lines of credit and reimbursement of certain operating costs. See Note 7 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for a further explanation of the various related-party transactions, agreements, and fees.
Reclassifications
Certain prior year balances have been reclassified in the condensed consolidated unaudited statement of operations to conform with the current year presentation of general and administrative expenses, property operating expenses and discontinued operations.

New Accounting Pronouncements
Refer to Note 2 to our condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for further explanation. There have been no accounting pronouncements issued, but not yet applied by us, that will significantly impact our financial statements.
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
As of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we had no material off-balance sheet arrangements that had or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, or capital resources.

Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
As required by Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), we, under the supervision and with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Based on that evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures, as of September 30, 2012, were effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the rules and forms promulgated under the Exchange Act, and is accumulated and communicated to management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
No change occurred in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d -15(f) of the Exchange Act) in connection with the foregoing evaluations that occurred during the three months ended September 30, 2012 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
