Real estate fundamentals in all of our key markets remain positive, with some markets like London and
New York City particularly strong through the majority of 2015 on both fundamentals and attractiveness to
investors. In our commodity-driven markets, the price of oil and other commodities is beginning to have
some impact on tenant demand, however in the near-term we are insulated with high occupancy and an
average of over seven years remaining before lease expiry in our office portfolio in these markets. And
while results of our real estate activities outside of the U.S. were strong in local currencies, headwinds
created by the strength of the U.S. dollar over the past 12 months have offset some of these gains in our
results.

Staley Point Capital and Bain Capital Real Estate Purchased Orange County Industrial Property for $21 Million

Staley Point Capital | May 05, 2021

Staley Point Capital ("Staley Point"), a value-add investor focusing on commercial assets in Southern California, and Bain Capital Real Estate, Bain Capital's real estate investing division, announced today the off-market purchase of a 100,000 square-foot industrial property in Brea, California, for approximately $21 million. "Given the supply barriers to entry and the solid demographics, we hope that this is only the first of many transactions in Orange County," said Eric Staley, Managing Director of Staley Point. "By providing closing assurance on a short timeline, we were able to differentiate ourselves as a buyer." The property is located at 331 Cliffwood in North Orange County, with easy access to the rest of the county via the 57 freeway. The asset has a clear height of 22 feet, four dock-high positions, and is completely leased for five years. This is the fourth sale done by Staley Point and Bain Capital Real Estate. It comes on the back of the newly announced acquisition of a 58,000 square-foot industrial property in Santa Fe Springs, as well as the purchasing of Freeway Point, an 83,000 square-foot industrial property, and a land site in the San Fernando Valley. "This investment represents both our partnership's continued success and our emphasis on investing locally in industrial properties with solid underlying growth fundamentals," said Andrew Terris, Managing Director at Bain Capital Real Estate. "We established North County as an appealing and high-performing submarket, and we look forward to capitalizing on additional prospects in the area that fit with our thematic and value-added investment strategy." Staley Point Capital and Bain Capital Real Estate have formed a joint venture to reposition and redevelop existing infill industrial sites near dense urban centers, mainly in Southern California. Staley Point Capital's legal counsel on the deal was Greenberg Traurig, LLP. Pacific Partners advised both the buyer and the seller, while JLL Capital Markets will handle the loan financing.

Kevin Staley founded the firm in 2019 to acquire value-add and opportunistic real estate investments, mainly in the industrial sector.
