American Spectrum Recognizes A $5.0 Million Gain Before Income Tax Expense On The Sale Of Three Assets In Houston, TX

American Spectrum Realty, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: AQQ) (“The Company”), a real estate investment, management and leasing company headquartered in Houston, Texas is pleased to announce the completed sale of three buildings, which have been pending for several months.

The cash proceeds enabled The Company to reduce its corporate bank debt by approximately $2 million, thus freeing up additional borrowing capabilities from its primary lender. American Spectrum used the proceeds to reduce their accounts payable by approximately $1 million.

The Company also procured a $2 million loan secured by various company assets. The loan will be used to further reduce corporate debt and for general working capital. These sales continue to implement American Spectrum Realty’s long term strategic plan of selling certain assets to reduce liabilities, increase liquidity and redirect assets to our third-party property management business.

American Spectrum acquired the two Park Ten buildings in May of 2002. Park Ten I and II are 73,210 SF and 68,599 SF multi-tenant office buildings located at 16350 and 16360 Park Ten. The third property sold was a 101,056 SF industrial property located at 9630 Clarewood Drive. All three buildings closed on March 30, 2012.
