Item 2.01. Acquisition of Assets
     On May 18, 2006, Government Properties Trust, Inc. (GPT) completed its previously announced acquisition of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) property located at 1709 and 1717 Zoy Street, Harlingen, Texas (the Harlingen property) for approximately $27.1 million. The purchase price was determined through arms-length negotiations between GPT and U.S.I.N.S. – II, LLC, an unrelated party with an address at 1014 East Harrison Avenue, Harlingen, Texas. GPT funded the purchase price with cash on hand and a mortgage loan from a financial institution in the amount of approximately $19.9 million. The mortgage loan bears interest at a fixed rate of 6.266% with principal and interest payments due monthly and are amortized on a 30-year schedule, with a balloon payment due June 1, 2016.
     The Harlingen property consists of two conjoined buildings that are fully leased by the United States of America under modified gross leases. The first building (USCIS I) was completed in January 1998 and consists of a 19,000 square foot, single-story building. The USCIS I lease expires in January 2018 and has an optional early termination right in January 2013. The second building (USCIS II), was completed in 2002 and consists of a 107,000 square foot, two-story building. The USCIS II lease expires in October 2022 and has no early termination right. The USCIS utilizes these facilities, situated on approximately 10.0 acres of land, for administrative purposes and processing immigrants in south Texas.
