DuPont Fabros Technology's CEO Discusses Q2 2011 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

A third lease is scheduled to expire in equal increments in 2017, 2018 and 2019. All of the Yahoo! space continues to be utilized. Facebook comprises approximately 21% of the company's annualized base rent as of June 30. Their lease expirations range from 2018 to 2022. As of today, we have no lease expirations in 2011.

Page 10 of our earnings release package includes a table that details our updates of lease expirations, incorporating our recent leasing and renewal activity. We have less than 10% of our annualized base rent expiring through the end of 2014. As of June 30, our top 3 tenants represent 58% of our annualized base rent.

The second lease, which was previously disclosed on our last earnings call, is with a technology tenant for 2.28 megawatts in Santa Clara. The third lease is with an existing tenant within our Ashburn Corporate Center and is for -- sorry, for 548 kilowatts in ACC6. This is our first lease within ACC6. Subsequent to the second quarter, we signed one lease with a new technology tenant for 569 kilowatts of critical load in New Jersey. This increases our lease critical load to 25%.
