NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 4, 2013) - The KBS Real Estate Investment Trust II, Inc. (KBS REIT II) Board of Directors has authorized a special distribution of 5.4 cents1 per share of common stock to stockholders of record as of the close of business today -- Monday, February 4, 2013.
The distribution, scheduled to be paid on Friday, February 15, 2013, will be the thirteenth distribution payment related to operations from the 2012 calendar year. The amount is based on one-twelfth of the same annualized rate of 6.5% on the $10 purchase price that was paid out monthly throughout last year.
This distribution is possible due to excess modified funds from operations (MFFO)2 generated by the REIT for the 2012 calendar year above the amount of previously declared distributions.
"KBS REIT II continues to generate positive performance and create value for stockholders," said Charles Schreiber, Jr., CEO, KBS REIT II. "I believe the portfolio remains well positioned and we continue to strive to identify additional opportunities for improvement in cash flow and values."
