Since the announcement of 2012 third quarter results on November 7, 2012, CWH has not acquired or entered into any agreements to purchase properties (excluding transactions by Select Income REIT, or SIR, CWH’s majority owned consolidated subsidiary).
During 2012, CWH sold three properties with a combined 298,762 square feet for a total of $11.7 million, excluding closing costs. In addition, as of December 31, 2012, 94 properties with a combined 6,673,851 square feet located throughout the United States were either listed or in the process of being listed for sale with third party brokers. After December 31, 2012, CWH sold 18 of these properties with a combined 1,060,026 square feet for a total of $10.3 million, excluding closing costs. As of today, CWH also has two properties with a combined 675,250 square feet under agreement to sell for a total of $5.1 million, excluding closing costs.

As of December 31, 2012, the 94 properties that were either listed or in the process of being listed for sale were reclassified to discontinued operations, and CWH recorded asset impairment charges totaling $168.6 million relating to these properties.
