The company continues to make progress on a number of fronts during the second quarter.

We extended the $109 million mortgage loan, secured by our Brea assets in Orange County, the final maturity day of this loan is now May, 2012 and there are no remaining extension options. We repaid a $15 million unsecured term loan and we refinanced one California Plaza, a joint venture property within up to $160 million mortgage loan. 140 million of the mortgage loan was funded at closing and we have the ability to make future draws up to $20 million in the aggregate for certain future leasing and releasing related capital expenditures.

The first mortgage is for $33.75 million, in addition, 11.25 million of mezzanine financing is permitted.
