Winthrop Realty Trust Acquires Interests In Four Loans

BOSTON, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Winthrop Realty Trust (NYSE: FUR) announced that it has acquired for a gross price of $15.6 million junior participations or rake bonds in three first mortgage loans as well as a mezzanine loan together which have an aggregate outstanding balance of $34.8 million.  Each loan or bond is secured by either a class A office building located in New York city, a class A office building located in the greater Los Angeles metro market, the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel or a retail condominium building located in New York city.

Michael L. Ashner, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated "in each instance we targeted a debt position in the underlying collateral's capital stack which we believe may be the fulcrum position in connection with a recapitalization of such asset."
