Gramercy Property Trust
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited, amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)
June 30, 2016


1. Business and Organization
Gramercy Property Trust, or the Company or Gramercy, a Maryland real estate investment trust, or REIT, is a leading global investor and asset manager of commercial real estate. Gramercy specializes in acquiring and managing single-tenant, net leased industrial, office, and specialty properties. The Company focuses on income producing properties leased to high quality tenants in major markets in the United States and Europe.
Gramercy earns revenues primarily through three sources: (i) rental revenues on properties that it owns in the United States, (ii) asset management revenues on properties owned by third parties in the United States and Europe and (iii) pro-rata rental revenues on its unconsolidated equity investments in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
On December 17, 2015, Chambers Street Properties, or Chambers, a Maryland REIT, completed a merger, or the Merger, with Gramercy Property Trust Inc., or Legacy Gramercy, a Maryland corporation, pursuant to which Legacy Gramercy stockholders received 3.1898 common shares of beneficial interest of Chambers for each share of common stock of Legacy Gramercy held. Following the Merger, Chambers changed its name to “Gramercy Property Trust” and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange, or NYSE, using the “GPT” stock symbol.
In the Merger, Chambers was the legal acquirer and Legacy Gramercy was the accounting acquirer for financial reporting purposes. Thus, the financial information set forth herein subsequent to the close of the Merger on December 17, 2015 reflects results of the combined company, and financial information prior to the close of the Merger reflects Legacy Gramercy results. For this reason, period to period comparisons may not be meaningful. Refer to Note 4 for additional information on the Merger.
Unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “Company,” “Gramercy,” “we,” “our,” and “us” mean Legacy Gramercy and one or more of the Company’s subsidiaries for the period prior to the Merger closing and Gramercy Property Trust and one or more of the Company’s subsidiaries for periods following the Merger closing.
As of June 30, 2016, the Company owns, either directly or in an unconsolidated equity investment, a portfolio of 327 industrial, office, and specialty properties with 98.5% occupancy. As of June 30, 2016, the Company’s asset management business, which operates under the name Gramercy Asset Management, manages for third-parties approximately $1,100,000 of commercial real estate assets, including approximately $837,000 of assets in Europe.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company acquired 22 properties aggregating 3,857,982 square feet in eight separate transactions for a total purchase price of approximately $296,059. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company acquired 25 properties aggregating 4,479,628 square feet in 10 separate transactions for a total purchase price of approximately $348,809. Additionally, on June 30, 2016, the Company received 100.0% ownership of seven properties previously held in its joint venture with Duke Realty Corporation through a distribution of real estate assets by the joint venture, which have an aggregate 4,189,630 square feet and total fair value of $276,100.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, the Company sold four properties aggregating 539,805 square feet for total gross proceeds of approximately $116,200. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company sold 10 properties aggregating 2,634,999 square feet for total gross proceeds of approximately $647,700. Additionally, on June 30, 2016, the Company sold 74.9% of its 80.0% interest in its European joint venture with the Goodman Group to its unconsolidated equity investment in Europe, Gramercy Property Europe plc, or the Gramercy European Property Fund, for gross proceeds of $148,884 (€134,336).
As of June 30, 2016, the Company’s wholly-owned portfolio of net leased properties is summarized as follows:

Gramercy Property Trust
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
(Unaudited, amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)
June 30, 2016

The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or the Internal Revenue Code or IRC, and generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income taxes to the extent it distributes its taxable income, if any, to its shareholders. The Company has in the past established, and may in the future establish taxable REIT subsidiaries, or TRSs, to effect various taxable transactions. Those TRSs would incur U.S. federal, state and local taxes on the taxable income from their activities.
The Company’s operating partnership, GPT Operating Partnership LP, or the Operating Partnership, indirectly owns (i) all of the Company’s consolidated real estate investments, (ii) the Company’s interests in unconsolidated investments and (iii) the entities, primarily a TRS, that conduct the Company’s third-party asset management operations. The Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership. In April 2016, the common units of limited partnership interest in the Legacy Gramercy’s operating partnership were exchanged for common units of limited partnership interest in GPT Operating Partnership LP, or OP Units. Additionally the Company’s partnership agreement was amended and restated to reflect the exchange, or the Fourth Amended and Restated Partnership Agreement. The Operating Partnership is the 100.0% owner of all of its direct and indirect subsidiaries, except that, as of June 30, 2016, third-party holders of limited partnership interests in the Operating Partnership owned approximately 0.27% of the beneficial interest of the Company. These interests are referred to as the noncontrolling interests in the Operating Partnership. See Note 12 for more information on the Company’s noncontrolling interests.

During the first quarter of 2016, the Company adopted ASU 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuances Costs, which requires the Company to reclassify debt financing costs, which were previously accounted for on the deferred costs line within the asset section, and present them in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of the corresponding debt liability, with the exception of deferred financing costs associated with the credit facility which remain in deferred costs in the asset section on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. Deferred financing costs totaling $6,389 have been reclassified in the December 31, 2015 Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet from the deferred costs line and netted against the corresponding debt liability. See “Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements” below for further discussion of the new accounting guidance for deferred financing costs.
Principles of Consolidation
The Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements include the Company’s accounts and those of the Company’s subsidiaries which are wholly-owned or controlled by the Company, or entities which are variable interest entities, or VIEs, in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. The primary beneficiary is the party that absorbs a majority of the VIE’s anticipated losses and/or a majority of the expected returns. The Company has evaluated its investments for potential classification as variable interests by evaluating the sufficiency of each entity’s equity investment at risk to absorb losses.

Entities which the Company does not control and are considered VIEs, but where the Company is not the primary beneficiary, are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated. The equity interests of other limited partners in the Company’s Operating Partnership are reflected as noncontrolling interests.
Real Estate Investments
The Company records acquired real estate investments as business combinations when the real estate is occupied, at least in part, at acquisition. Costs directly related to the acquisition of such investments are expensed as incurred. The Company allocates the purchase price of real estate to land, building, improvements and intangibles, such as the value of above- and below-market leases, and origination costs associated with the in-place leases at the acquisition date. The values of the above- and below-market leases are amortized and recorded as either an increase, in the case of below-market leases, or a decrease, in the case of above-market leases, to rental revenue over the remaining term of the associated lease. The values associated with in-place leases are amortized to depreciation and amortization expense over the remaining term of the associated lease.
The Company assesses the fair value of the leases at acquisition based upon estimated cash flow projections that utilize appropriate discount rates and available market information. Estimates of future cash flows are based on a number of factors including the historical operating results, known trends, and market/economic conditions that may affect the property. Additionally, for transactions that are business combinations, the Company evaluates the existence of goodwill or a gain from a bargain purchase at the time of acquisition.
Acquired real estate investments involving sale-leasebacks that have newly-originated leases are recorded as asset acquisitions and accordingly, transaction costs incurred in connection with the acquisition are capitalized. Acquired real estate investments which are under construction are considered build-to-suit transactions and other acquired real estate investments that do not meet the definition of a business combination are recorded at cost. In build-to-suit transactions, the Company engages a developer to construct a property or provides funds to a tenant to develop a property. The Company capitalizes the funds provided to the developer/tenant and real estate taxes, if applicable, during the construction period.
Certain improvements are capitalized when they are determined to increase the useful life of the building. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the shorter of the estimated useful life at acquisition of the capitalized item or 40 years for buildings, five to ten years for building equipment and fixtures, and the lesser of the useful life or the remaining lease term for tenant improvements and leasehold interests. Maintenance and repair expenditures are charged to expense as incurred.
In leasing space, the Company may provide funding to the lessee through a tenant allowance. If the Company is considered the owner of the leasehold improvements constructed using a tenant allowance, the Company capitalizes the amount of the allowance and depreciates it over the shorter of the useful life of the leasehold improvements or the lease term. If the tenant allowance represents a payment for a purpose other than funding leasehold improvements, or if the Company is not considered the owner of the improvements for accounting purposes, the allowance is considered to be a lease incentive and is recognized over the lease term as a reduction of rental revenue.
The Company also reviews the recoverability of the property’s carrying value when circumstances indicate a possible impairment of the value of a property, expected to result from the property’s use and eventual disposition. If management determines impairment exists due to the inability to recover the carrying value of a property, an impairment loss is recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations to the extent that the carrying value exceeds the estimated fair value of the property for properties to be held and used and for assets held for sale, an impairment loss is recorded to the extent that the carrying value exceeds the fair value less estimated cost of disposal. The estimated fair value of the asset becomes its new cost basis and if the asset is to be held and used, the new cost basis will be depreciated or amortized over its remaining useful life.

Intangible Assets and Liabilities
The Company follows the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations. The Company allocates the purchase price of acquired properties to tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired based on their respective fair values. Tangible assets include land, buildings and improvements on an as-if vacant basis and identifiable intangible assets include amounts allocated to acquired leases for above- and below-market lease rates, the value of in-place leases, and above-market and below-market ground rent intangibles.
The above- and below-market lease values are amortized as a reduction of and increase to rental revenue, respectively, over the remaining non-cancelable terms of the respective leases. The value of in-place leases is amortized to depreciation and amortization expense over the remaining non-cancelable term of the respective leases. To the extent acquired leases contain fixed rate renewal options that are below-market and determined to be material, the Company amortizes such below-market lease value into rental revenue over the renewal period. If a tenant terminates its lease prior to its contractual expiration and no future rental payments will be received, any unamortized balance of the market lease intangibles will be written off to rental revenue and any unamortized balance of the in-place lease intangibles will be written off to depreciation and amortization expense. The above- and below-market ground rent intangible values are amortized as a reduction of and increase to rent expense, respectively, over the remaining non-cancelable terms of the respective leases. If the Company terminates its lease prior to its contractual expiration and no future rent payments will be paid, any unamortized balance of the ground rent intangibles will be written off to rent expense.
Intangible assets and liabilities consist of the following:
 June 30, 2016 December 31, 2015

The Company recorded $29,615 and $10,142 of amortization of in-place lease intangible assets as part of depreciation and amortization for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded $57,175 and $18,139 of amortization of in-place lease intangible assets as part of depreciation and amortization for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded $5,629 and $2,105 of amortization of market lease intangible assets and liabilities as an increase to rental revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded $5,810 and $6,050 of amortization of market lease intangible assets and liabilities as an increase to rental revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded $8 and $0 of amortization of ground rent intangible assets and liabilities as part of other property operating expense for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The Company recorded $17 and $(40) of amortization of ground rent intangible assets and liabilities as part of other property operating expense for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.
Goodwill
Goodwill represents the fair value of the collaboration expected to be achieved upon consummation of a business combination and is measured as the excess of consideration transferred over the net assets acquired at acquisition date. The Company initially recognized goodwill of $3,887 related to the acquisition of Gramercy Europe Limited, or Gramercy Europe Asset Management, however during the second quarter of 2015, as a result of finalization of the purchase price allocation for the acquisition, the Company decreased the amount allocated to goodwill by $85 and thus the final purchase price allocation to goodwill as a result of the acquisition was $3,802. The adjustment to goodwill for the finalized purchase price was primarily related to a reduction in the contract intangible value as well as an increase in the accrued income recorded for incentive fees. The carrying value of goodwill is adjusted each reporting period for the effect of foreign currency translation adjustments. The carrying value of goodwill at June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 was $3,223 and $3,568, respectively. The Company’s goodwill has an indeterminate life and is not amortized, but is tested for impairment on an annual basis, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired. The Company takes a qualitative approach to consider whether an impairment of goodwill exists prior to quantitatively determining the fair value of the reporting unit in step one of the impairment test. The Company did not record any impairment on its goodwill during the six months ended June 30, 2016 or 2015.

Unconsolidated Equity Investments
The Company accounts for substantially all of its unconsolidated equity investments under the equity method of accounting since it exercises significant influence, but does not unilaterally control the entities, and is not considered to be the primary beneficiary. In unconsolidated equity investments, the rights of the other investors are protective and participating. Unless the Company is determined to be the primary beneficiary, these rights preclude it from consolidating the investments. The investments are recorded initially at cost as unconsolidated equity investments, as applicable, and subsequently are adjusted for equity interest in net income (loss) and cash contributions and distributions. The amount of the investments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets is evaluated for impairment at each reporting period. None of the unconsolidated equity investment debt is recourse to the Company. Transactions with unconsolidated equity method entities are eliminated to the extent of the Company’s ownership in each such entity. Accordingly, the Company’s share of net income (loss) of these equity method entities is included in consolidated net income (loss).
The Company’s 5.07% unconsolidated equity investment in CBRE Strategic Partners Asia, described more in Note 5, is presented in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at fair value. CBRE Strategic Partners Asia is an investment company that accounts for its investments at fair value with changes in the fair value of the investments recorded in the statement of operations. See the “Fair Value Measurements” section of this Note 2 as well as Note 9, “Fair Value Measurements,” for further discussion of the fair value accounting methodology used for CBRE Strategic Partners Asia.
Carrying values of the Company’s unconsolidated equity investments were $145,252 and $580,000 at June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.
Restricted Cash
The Company had restricted cash of $65,748 and $17,354 at June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, which primarily consists of proceeds from property sales held by qualified intermediaries to be used for tax-deferred, like-kind exchanges under IRC Section 1031, as well as reserves for certain capital improvements, leasing, interest and real estate tax and insurance payments as required by certain mortgage loan obligations.
Variable Interest Entities
During the first quarter of 2016, the Company adopted ASU 2015-02, Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis, which modified the analysis it must perform to determine whether it should consolidate certain types of legal entities. The Company’s operating partnerships, including both the GPT Operating Partnership, or the Operating Partnership, and Gramercy Operating Partnership, which is Legacy Gramercy’s operating partnership, are VIEs under the revised guidance and the Company is the primary beneficiary of each of them, because it holds majority ownership and exercises control over every aspect of the partnerships’ operations. Because the operating partnerships were already consolidated in the Company’s balance sheets, the revised guidance has no impact on the consolidated financial statements of the Company. The assets and liabilities of the Company and its operating partnerships are substantially the same, as the Company does not have any significant assets other than its investments in the operating partnerships. All of the Company's debt is also an obligation of the operating partnerships. There were no other legal entities qualifying under the scope of the revised guidance that were consolidated as a result of the adoption. In addition, there were no voting interest entities under prior existing guidance determined to be VIEs under the revised guidance.

Consolidated VIEs
Proportion Foods
In December 2015, the Company entered into a non-recourse financing arrangement with Big Proportion Austin LLC, or BIG, for a build-to-suit industrial property in Round Rock, Texas, or Proportion Foods. Concurrently, the Company entered into a forward purchase agreement with BIG, pursuant to which the Company will acquire the property, which is 100.0% leased to Proportion Foods, upon substantial completion of the facility’s development. The Company has determined that Proportion Foods is a VIE, as the equity holders of the entity do not have controlling financial interests and the obligation to absorb losses. The Company controls the activities that most significantly affect the economic outcome of Proportion Foods through its financing arrangement to fund the property’s development and its forward purchase agreement with BIG. As such, the Company has concluded that it is the entity’s primary beneficiary and has consolidated the VIE. The Company has a note receivable from BIG related to the financing arrangement, which is a note payable for BIG and thus eliminates upon consolidation of the VIE.
The construction of the facility on the property is expected to be complete in December 2016 and the Company has committed $24,950 in financing for the construction. BIG is responsible for funding in excess of the $24,950 mortgage note. As of June 30, 2016, the Company has funded $8,926 for the property.
Gramercy Europe Asset Management (European Fund Manager)
In connection with the Company’s December 2014 investment in the Gramercy European Property Fund, the Company acquired equity interests in the entity, hereinafter European Fund Manager, which provides investment and asset management services to the Gramercy European Property Fund. The Company has determined that European Fund Manager is a VIE, as the equity holders of that entity do not have controlling financial interests and the obligation to absorb losses. As Gramercy Europe Asset Management, through an investment advisory agreement with the VIE, controls the activities that most significantly affect the economic outcome of European Fund Manager, the Company has concluded that it is the entity’s primary beneficiary and has consolidated the VIE.
European Fund Manager is expected to generate net cash inflows for the Company in the form of management fees in the future, however, if the VIE’s cash inflows are not sufficient to cover its obligations, the Company may provide financial support for the VIE.
Unconsolidated VIEs
Gramercy Europe Asset Management (European Fund Carry Co.)
In connection with the Company’s December 2014 investment in the Gramercy European Property Fund, the Company acquired equity interests in the entity, hereinafter European Fund Carry Co., entitled to receive certain preferential distributions, if any, made from time-to-time by the Gramercy European Property Fund. The Company has determined that European Fund Carry Co. is a VIE, as the equity holders of that entity do not have controlling financial interests and the obligation to absorb losses. Decisions that most significantly affect the economic performance of European Fund Carry Co. are decided by a majority vote of that VIE’s shareholders. As such, the Company does not have a controlling financial interest in the VIE and has accounted for it as an equity investment.
As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, European Fund Carry Co. had net assets of $(19) and $(5).
Investment in Retained CDO Bonds
The Company holds non-investment grade subordinate bonds, preferred shares and ordinary shares of three collateralized debt obligations, or the Retained CDO Bonds, which it recognized subsequent to the disposal of its Gramercy Finance segment, or Gramercy Finance, and exit from the commercial real estate finance business in March 2013. The Company is not obligated to provide any financial support to these collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs. The Company’s maximum exposure to loss is limited to its interest in the Retained CDO Bonds and the Company does not control the activities that most significantly impact the VIE’s economic performance.

Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations
As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had one and six assets classified as held for sale, respectively. One and six of the assets held for sale as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, represent Chambers properties that qualified as held for sale as of the closing date of the Merger and are included within discontinued operations, in accordance with ASC 360, as these assets acquired in the Merger do not align with the Company’s investment strategy and therefore will be sold. Real estate investments to be disposed of are reported at the lower of carrying amount or estimated fair value, less costs to sell. Once an asset is classified as held for sale, depreciation and amortization expense is no longer recorded. Refer to Note 3 for further information on the Company’s assets held for sale and discontinued operations.
Tenant and Other Receivables
Tenant and other receivables are derived from management fees, rental revenue and tenant reimbursements.
Management fees, including incentive management fees, are recognized as earned in accordance with the terms of the management agreements. The management agreements may contain provisions for fees related to dispositions, administration of the assets including fees related to accounting, valuation and legal services, and management of capital improvements or projects on the underlying assets.
Rental revenue is recorded on a straight-line basis over the initial term of the lease. Since many leases provide for rental increases at specified intervals, straight-line basis accounting requires the Company to record a receivable, and include in revenues, unbilled rent receivables that will only be received if the tenant makes all rent payments required through the expiration of the initial term of the lease. Tenant and other receivables also include receivables related to tenant reimbursements for common area maintenance expenses and certain other recoverable expenses that are recognized as revenue in the period in which the related expenses are incurred.
Tenant and other receivables are recorded net of the allowances for doubtful accounts, which as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015 were $94 and $204, respectively. The Company continually reviews receivables related to rent, tenant reimbursements, and management fees, including incentive fees, and determines collectability by taking into consideration the tenant or asset management clients’ payment history, the financial condition of the tenant or asset management client, business conditions in the industry in which the tenant or asset management client operates and economic conditions in the area in which the property or asset management client is located. In the event that the collectability of a receivable is in doubt, the Company increases the allowance for doubtful accounts or records a direct write-off of the receivable.
Deferred Costs
Deferred costs consist of deferred financing costs, deferred acquisition costs, and deferred leasing costs. Deferred costs are presented net of accumulated amortization.
The Company’s deferred financing costs are comprised of costs associated with the Company’s unsecured credit facilities and include commitment fees, issuance costs, and legal and other third-party costs associated with obtaining the related financing. Deferred financing costs are amortized on a straight-line or effective interest basis over the contractual terms of the respective agreements and the amortization is reflected as interest expense. Unamortized deferred financing costs are expensed when the associated debt is refinanced or repaid before maturity. Costs incurred in seeking financing transactions that do not close are expensed in the period in which it is determined that the financing will not close. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company adopted accounting guidance related to the presentation of deferred financing costs on the balance sheet and reclassified amounts from the deferred costs line pertaining to debt arrangements other than its unsecured credit facilities, that were within the asset section, to instead be netted against the corresponding debt liability for all periods presented. See “Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements” below for further discussion of the new accounting guidance for deferred financing costs.
The Company’s deferred acquisition costs consist primarily of lease inducement fees paid to secure acquisitions and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the related lease term as a reduction from rental revenue.

June 30, 2016

The Company’s deferred leasing costs include direct costs, such as lease commissions, incurred to initiate and renew operating leases and are amortized on a straight-line basis over the related lease term as a reduction from rental revenue.
Fair Value Measurements
At June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company measured its Retained CDO Bonds, derivative instruments, and CBRE Strategic Partners Asia on a recurring basis and measured its real estate investments classified as held for sale at Merger closing on a non-recurring basis. ASC 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures,” among other things, establishes a hierarchical disclosure framework associated with the level of pricing observability utilized in measuring financial instruments and other assets and liabilities at fair value. Considerable judgment is necessary to interpret market data and develop estimated fair values. Accordingly, fair values are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize on disposition of these assets and liabilities. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date, or an exit price. The level of pricing observability generally correlates to the degree of judgment utilized in measuring the fair value of financial instruments and other assets and liabilities. The investment manager of CBRE Strategic Partners Asia applies valuation techniques for the Company’s investment carried at fair value based upon the application of the income approach, the direct market comparison approach, the replacement cost approach or third-party appraisals to the underlying assets held in the unconsolidated entity in determining the net asset value attributable to the Company’s ownership interest therein. The three broad levels defined are as follows:
Level I – This level is comprised of financial instruments and other assets and liabilities that have quoted prices that are available in liquid markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level II – This level is comprised of financial instruments and other assets and liabilities for which quoted prices are available but which are traded less frequently and instruments that are measured at fair value using management’s judgment, where the inputs into the determination of fair value can be directly observed.
Level III – This level is comprised of financial instruments and other assets and liabilities that have little to no pricing observability as of the reported date. These financial instruments do not have active markets and are measured using management’s best estimate of fair value, where the inputs into the determination of fair value require significant management judgment and assumptions.
For a further discussion regarding fair value measurements see Note 9, “Fair Value Measurements.”
Revenue Recognition
Real Estate Investments
Rental revenue from leases on real estate investments is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, regardless of when payments are contractually due. The excess of rental revenue recognized over the amounts contractually due according to the underlying leases are included in deferred revenue on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. For leases on properties that are under construction at the time of acquisition, the Company begins recognition of rental revenue upon completion of construction of the leased asset and delivery of the leased asset to the tenant.
The Company’s lease agreements with tenants also generally contain provisions that require tenants to reimburse the Company for real estate taxes, insurance costs, common area maintenance costs, and other property-related expenses. Under lease arrangements in which the Company is the primary obligor for these expenses, such amounts are recognized as both revenues and operating expenses for the Company. Under lease arrangements in which the tenant pays these expenses directly, such amounts are not included in revenues or expenses. These reimbursement amounts are recognized in the period in which the related expenses are incurred.

June 30, 2016

The Company recognizes sales of real estate properties only upon closing. Payments received from purchasers prior to closing are recorded as deposits. Profit on real estate sold is recognized using the full accrual method upon closing when the collectability of the sale price is reasonably assured and the Company is not obligated to perform significant activities after the sale. Profit may be deferred in whole or part until the sale meets the requirements of profit recognition on sale of real estate.
Asset Management Business
The Company’s asset and property management agreements may contain provisions for fees related to dispositions, administration of the assets including fees related to accounting, valuation and legal services, and management of capital improvements or projects on the underlying assets. The Company recognizes revenue for fees pursuant to its management agreements in the period in which they are earned. Management fees received prior to the date earned are included in deferred revenue on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Certain of the Company’s asset management contracts include provisions that may allow it to earn additional fees, generally described as incentive fees or profit participation interests, based on the achievement of a targeted valuation of the managed assets or the achievement of a certain internal rate of return on the managed assets. The Company recognizes incentive fees on its asset management contracts based upon the amount that would be due pursuant to the contract, if the contract were terminated at the reporting date. If the contract may be terminated at will, revenue will only be recognized for the amount that would be due pursuant to that termination. If the incentive fee is a fixed amount, only a proportionate share of revenue is recognized at the reporting date, with the remaining fees recognized on a straight-line basis over the measurement period. The values of incentive management fees are periodically evaluated by management. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized incentive fees of $14,217 and $15,190, respectively. For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded an adjustment of $(64) to incentive fees. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized incentive fees of $2,971.
Investment and Other Income
Investment income consists primarily of income accretion on the Company’s Retained CDO Bonds, which are measured at fair value on a quarterly basis using a discounted cash flow model. Other income primarily consists of interest income on servicing advances and realized foreign currency exchange gain (loss).
Share-Based Compensation Plans
The Company has share-based compensation plans, described more fully in Note 11. The Company accounts for share-based awards using the fair value recognition provisions. Awards of shares or restricted shares are expensed as compensation over the benefit period and may require inputs that are highly subjective and require significant management judgment and analysis to develop. The Company assumes a forfeiture rate which impacts the amount of aggregate compensation cost recognized. In accordance with the provisions of the Company’s share-based compensation plans, the Company accepts the return of shares of the Company’s common shares, at the current quoted market price to satisfy minimum statutory tax-withholding requirements related to shares that vested during the period. The Company also grants awards pursuant to its share-based compensation plans in the form of LTIP units, which are a class of limited partnership interests in the Company’s Operating Partnership.

Translation
The Company has interests in the European Union and Canada, for which the functional currencies are the euro, the British pound sterling and the Canadian dollar. The Company performs the translation from the euro, the British pound sterling or the Canadian dollar, to the U.S. dollar for assets and liabilities using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date and for revenue and expense accounts using a weighted-average exchange rate during the period. The Company reports the gains and losses resulting from such translation as a component of other comprehensive income (loss). The Company recorded net translation gains (losses) of $(8,686) and $(2,567) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. The Company recorded net translation gains (losses) of $269 and $51 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively. These translation gains and losses are reclassified to earnings when the Company has substantially exited from all investments in the related currency.
Transaction Gains or Losses
A transaction gain or loss realized upon settlement of a foreign currency transaction will be included in earnings for the period in which the transaction is settled. Foreign currency intercompany transactions that are scheduled for settlement are included in the determination of net income.
Intercompany foreign currency transactions of a long-term nature that do not have a planned or foreseeable future settlement date, in which the entities to the transactions are consolidated or accounted for by the equity method in the Company’s financial statements, are not included in net income but are reported as a component of other comprehensive income (loss).
Net realized gains (losses) are recognized on foreign currency transactions in connection with the transfer of cash from or to foreign operations of subsidiaries or equity investments to the parent company. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recognized net realized foreign currency transaction gains (losses) of $(186) and $(81), respectively, on such transactions. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recognized net realized foreign currency transaction losses of $4 and $10, respectively, on such transactions.
Derivatives and Non-Derivative Hedging Instruments
In the normal course of business, the Company is exposed to the effect of interest rate and foreign exchange rate changes. The Company limits these risks by following established risk management policies and procedures including the use of derivatives and non-derivative net investment hedges. The Company uses a variety of derivative instruments that are considered “plain vanilla” derivatives to manage, or hedge, interest rate risk. The Company enters into derivative and hedging instruments that will be maximally effective in reducing the interest rate risk and foreign currency exchange rate risk exposure that they are designated to hedge. This effectiveness is essential for qualifying for hedge accounting. Instruments that meet these hedging criteria are formally designated as hedges at the inception of the derivative contract. The Company’s derivatives and non-derivative hedging instruments typically include interest rate swaps, caps, collars and floors, foreign currency forward contracts, as well as non-derivative net investment hedges. The Company expressly prohibits the use of unconventional derivative instruments and using derivative instruments for trading or speculative purposes. Further, the Company has a policy of only entering into contracts with major financial institutions based upon their credit ratings and other factors.
The Company recognizes all derivatives on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets at fair value. Derivatives that are not hedges must be adjusted to fair value through income. If a derivative is a hedge, depending on the nature of the hedge, changes in the fair value of the derivative will either be offset against the change in fair value of the hedged asset, liability or firm commitment through earnings, or recognized in other comprehensive income until the hedged item is recognized in earnings. The ineffective portion of a hedging derivative’s change in fair value is immediately recognized in earnings. Derivative accounting may increase or decrease reported net income and shareholders’ equity prospectively, depending on future levels of the London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, swap spreads, foreign exchange rates, and other variables affecting the fair values of derivative instruments and hedged items, but will have no effect on cash flows, provided the contract is carried through to full term.

June 30, 2016

The Company’s non-derivative hedging instrument, the foreign currency denominated tranche of the Company’s 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, is reported at carrying value on its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. As the non-derivative net investment hedge is denominated in euros, the Company translates the carrying value in euros into its functional and reporting currency of U.S. dollars at the period-ending rate and reports this value in its financial statements, with the foreign currency translation adjustment associated with the hedged net investment reported in the cumulative translation adjustment within other comprehensive income (loss). Refer to Note 10 for more information on the Company’s derivatives and non-derivative hedging instruments.
Other Assets
The Company makes payments for certain expenses such as insurance and property taxes in advance of the period in which it receives the benefit. These payments are classified as other assets and amortized over the respective period of benefit relating to the contractual arrangement. Other assets also includes deposits related to pending acquisitions and financing arrangements, as required by a seller or lender, respectively. Costs prepaid in connection with securing financing for a property are reclassified into deferred financing costs at the time the transaction is completed. Additionally, other assets includes costs of software purchased for internal use and as well as the value of contracts assumed by the Company pursuant to a business combination, such as asset or property management contracts.
Servicing Advances Receivable
The Company’s servicing advances receivable consisted of its accrual for the reimbursement of servicing advances, including expenses such as legal fees and professional fees incurred while the Company was the collateral manager of the CDOs, which were recognized as part of the disposal of Gramercy Finance in March 2013. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company received reimbursements from servicing advances of $1,390. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company did not receive any reimbursements. As of June 30, 2016, there were no servicing advances receivable, and as of December 31, 2015, there were servicing advances receivable of $1,382. All servicing advances were received as of March 30, 2016, thus there will be no future activity related to servicing advances.
Retained CDO Bonds
The Company recognized its Retained CDO Bonds at fair value in March 2013 subsequent to the disposal of Gramercy Finance. Management estimated the timing and amount of cash flows expected to be collected and recognized an investment in the Retained CDO Bonds equal to the net present value of these discounted cash flows. There is no guarantee that the Company will realize any proceeds from this investment, or what the timing will be for the expected remaining life of the Retained CDO Bonds. The Company considers these investments to be not of high credit quality and does not expect a full recovery of interest and principal. Therefore, the Company has suspended interest income accruals on these investments. On a quarterly basis, the Company evaluates the Retained CDO Bonds to determine whether significant changes in estimated cash flows or unrealized losses on these investments, if any, reflect a decline in value which is other-than-temporary. If there is a decrease in estimated cash flows and the investment is in an unrealized loss position, the Company will record an other-than-temporary impairment, or OTTI, in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. To determine the component of the OTTI related to expected credit losses, the Company compares the amortized cost basis of the Retained CDO Bonds to the present value of the revised expected cash flows, discounted using the pre-impairment yield. Conversely, if the security is in an unrealized gain position and there is a decrease or significant increase in expected cash flows, the Company will prospectively adjust the yield using the effective yield method. Refer to Note 9 for further discussion regarding the fair value measurement of the Retained CDO Bonds. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company recognized no OTTI on its Retained CDO Bonds.

Income Taxes
The Company elected to be taxed as a REIT, under Sections 856 through 860 of the Internal Revenue Code, beginning with its taxable year ended December 31, 2004. To qualify as a REIT, the Company must meet certain organizational and operational requirements, including a requirement to distribute at least 90.0% of its ordinary taxable income, to shareholders. As a REIT, the Company generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income that the Company distributes to its shareholders. If the Company fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, it will then be subject to U.S. federal income taxes on taxable income at regular corporate rates and will not be permitted to qualify for treatment as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes for four years following the year during which qualification is lost unless the Internal Revenue Service grants the Company relief under certain statutory provisions. Such an event could materially adversely affect the Company’s net income and net cash available for distributions to shareholders. However, the Company believes that it will be organized and will operate in such a manner as to qualify for treatment as a REIT and the Company intends to operate in the foreseeable future in such a manner so that it will qualify as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The Company is subject to certain state and local taxes. The Company’s TRSs are subject to federal, state and local taxes.

June 30, 2016

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded $2,700 and $3,403 of income tax expense, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded $17 and $1,131 of income tax expense, respectively. Tax expense for each year is comprised of federal, state, local, and foreign taxes. Income taxes, primarily related to the Company’s TRSs, are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the estimated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis and operating loss carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. A valuation allowance is provided if the Company believes it is more likely than not that all or a portion of a deferred tax asset will not be realized. Any increase or decrease in a valuation allowance is included in the tax provision when such a change occurs.
The Company’s policy for interest and penalties, if any, on material uncertain tax positions recognized in the financial statements is to classify these as interest expense and operating expense, respectively.
Earnings Per Share
The Company presents both basic and diluted earnings per share, or EPS. Basic EPS excludes dilution and is computed by dividing net income available to vested common shareholders by the weighted average number of vested common shares outstanding during the period. The Company has adopted the two-class computation method, and thus includes all participating securities in the computation of basic shares for the periods in which the Company has net income available to vested common shares outstanding. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common shares were exercised or converted into common shares, as long as their inclusion would not be anti-dilutive. Refer to Note 11 for further discussion of the computation of EPS.
Concentrations of Credit Risk
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash investments, debt investments and accounts receivable. The Company places its cash investments in excess of insured amounts with high quality financial institutions.
Concentrations of credit risk also arise when a number of the Company’s tenants or asset management clients are engaged in similar business activities or are subject to similar economic risks or conditions that could cause their inability to meet contractual obligations to the Company. The Company regularly monitors its portfolio to assess potential concentrations of credit risk. Management believes the current credit risk portfolio is reasonably well diversified. One asset management client, KBS Real Estate Investment Trust, Inc., or KBS, accounted for 95% and 93% of the Company’s management fee income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. KBS also accounted for 95% and 85% of the Company’s management fee income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively. Gramercy Europe Asset Management accounted for 5% and 7% of the Company’s management fee income, including European asset management fee income, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. One tenant, Bank of America, N.A., accounted for 15% and 13% of the Company’s rental revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. Bank of America, N.A. also accounted for 24% and 30% of the Company’s rental revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively. Additionally, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, there were three states, California, Florida, and Texas, that each accounted for 10% or more of the Company’s rental revenue.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board, or FASB, issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, which creates a new Topic ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers. The core principle of the new guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. Additionally, the guidance requires increased disclosures related to revenue recognition. Pursuant to ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, issued in August 2015, ASU 2014-09 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption only permitted for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods therein. In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, and in May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-11 and ASU 2016-12, which are clarification updates related to the revenue recognition guidance in ASU 2014-09 and have the same effective date and transition requirements as ASU 2014-09. The Company will appropriately adopt and apply the guidance retrospectively for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 and the interim periods within that year. The Company is currently evaluating the guidance to determine the impact it may have on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
In February 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-02, Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis, which amends the current consolidation guidance, including introducing a separate consolidation analysis specific to limited partnerships and other similar entities. Under this analysis, limited partnerships and other similar entities will be considered a VIE unless the limited partners hold substantive kick-out rights or participating rights. The guidance is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this guidance during the first quarter of 2016, which did not result in changes to the Company’s conclusions regarding consolidation of applicable entities.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-03, Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs, which serves to simplify the presentation of debt issuance costs in a company’s financial statements. The amendments in the update require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that liability. The update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-15, Interest – Imputation of Interest, which allows an entity to present the debt issuance costs from a line-of-credit arrangement as an asset. The Company adopted this guidance during the first quarter of 2016 and reclassified amounts in each period presented. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements as the update relates only to changes in financial statement presentation. See the “Reclassification” section above for further details on the adoption of this guidance.
In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-05, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - Internal-Use Software: Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement. The update requires companies to account for the software license element of a cloud computing arrangement consistent with the acquisition of other software licenses and other licenses of intangible assets. The update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted. The Company adopted this guidance during the first quarter of 2016. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases, which amends the existing accounting standards for lease accounting, including requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets and making targeted changes to lessor accounting. The update will be effective beginning in the first quarter of 2019 and early adoption is permitted. The new standard requires a modified retrospective transition approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after, the date of initial application, with an option to use certain transition relief. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new leases standard on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.

June 30, 2016

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation: Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The update serves to simplify the accounting for share-based payment award transactions, including income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification of awards on the statement of cash flows. The guidance in the ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted for any interim or annual period. The Company has not elected early adoption of the amendments in the updates and expects that the new guidance will not have a material impact on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses, which amends the existing accounting guidance related to credit losses on financial instruments. The amendments in the update replace the incurred loss impairment methodology in the current accounting standards with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss estimates. The update is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2019, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the update on its Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
3. Dispositions, Assets Held for Sale, and Discontinued Operations
Real Estate Dispositions
During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company sold four and 10 properties, respectively. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company sold three properties. The 10 property sales in 2016 consisted of all office properties that comprised an aggregate 2,634,999 square feet and generated gross proceeds of $647,700. The three properties sold in three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were office properties from the Company’s 67 property portfolio leased primarily to Bank of America N.A., the Bank of America Portfolio, which comprised an aggregate 85,866 square feet and generated gross proceeds of $8,619. The Company did not recognize any gains or impairments on disposals during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. The Company recognized $350 in gains on disposals and an impairment of $149 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. Six of the property sales in 2016 were structured as like-kind exchanges within the meaning of Section 1031 of the IRC. As a result of the sales, the Company deposited $270,508 of the total sales proceeds into an IRC Section 1031 exchange escrow account with a qualified intermediary. The Company then used $227,521 of these funds as consideration for 21 property acquisitions during the six months ended June 30, 2016. Five of the properties sold during the six months ended June 30, 2016, which were sold for gross proceeds of $386,000, represent properties assumed in the Merger that were designated as held for sale at the time of Merger closing, and are thus included in discontinued operations for all periods presented. Five of the properties sold during the six months ended June 30, 2016, which were sold for gross proceeds of $261,700, were also assumed in the Merger and were classified as held for sale at the time of disposition, however they are not included in discontinued operations as they did not meet the definition of discontinued operations.
Assets Held for Sale
The Company separately classifies properties held for sale in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company had one and six assets classified as held for sale as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively. In the normal course of business the Company identifies non-strategic assets for sale. Changes in the market may compel the Company to decide to classify a property held for sale or classify a property that was designated as held for sale back to held for investment. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company did not reclassify any properties previously identified as held for sale to held for investment.

Merger with Chambers
As described in Note 1, on December 17, 2015, the Company completed a merger transaction in which Legacy Gramercy merged with and into a subsidiary of Chambers. In accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations, the Merger was accounted for as a reverse acquisition, with Chambers as the legal acquirer and Legacy Gramercy as the accounting acquirer for financial reporting purposes. At Merger closing, each share of Legacy Gramercy common stock, par value $0.001 per share, that was issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the Merger, was canceled and converted into the right to receive 3.1898 common shares, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company. Because the Merger is accounted for as a reverse acquisition, consideration for the Merger is computed as if Legacy Gramercy had issued its equity interests to Chambers shareholders. Consideration for the Merger was $1,829,241, based on Legacy Gramercy’s closing stock price of $24.63 on December 17, 2015, the number of Chambers common shares outstanding at the close of the Merger, and the Merger Agreement exchange ratio of 3.1898 set forth in the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of July 1, 2015, related to the Merger, or the Merger Agreement.

The Company is in the process of completing the allocation of the purchase price for the Merger, which the Company expects to finalize later this year. The following table summarizes the preliminary purchase price allocation, which represents the current best estimate of acquisition date fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed:

Liabilities related to assets held for sale293,276
Total liabilities$1,498,057
Estimated fair value of net assets acquired$1,829,241
The final allocation of the purchase price will be based on the Company’s assessment of the fair value of the acquired assets and liabilities and may differ significantly from the estimated preliminary allocation. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded adjustments to the preliminary purchase price allocation for Chambers as a result of further evaluation of the fair value of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The adjustments recorded resulted in a decrease to the allocation to assets acquired by $2,095 and a decrease to the allocation to liabilities assumed by $2,095. The preliminary purchase price allocation adjustments also resulted in an increase in net income of $1,666 and $1,673 to record adjustments to depreciation and amortization expense related to the adjustments on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.

Acquisition of Gramercy Europe Asset Management
On December 19, 2014, the Company acquired ThreadGreen Europe Limited, a United Kingdom based property and asset management platform, which the Company subsequently renamed Gramercy Europe Limited, or Gramercy Europe Asset Management, for $3,755 and the issuance of 96,535 shares of the Company’s common stock, valued at $652 as of the date of closing. The Company accounted for the acquisition utilizing the acquisition method of accounting for business combinations. The Company initially recognized assets of $902, liabilities of $398, and goodwill of $3,887, as well as a $16 realized foreign currency transaction loss related to the acquisition and during the second quarter of 2015, the Company finalized the purchase price allocation, which resulted in an increase to the allocation to assets by $190, an increase to the allocation to liabilities by $105, a decrease to goodwill by $85, and a decrease to net income of $80 to record adjustments to amortization and incentive fees. The final allocation of the purchase price included assets of $1,092, liabilities of $503, and goodwill of $3,802. Goodwill represents the fair value of the collaboration expected to be achieved upon consummation of a business combination and is measured as the excess of consideration transferred over the net assets acquired at acquisition date. For more information on Gramercy Europe Asset Management, refer to Note 5.
5. Unconsolidated Equity Investments
The Company has investments in a variety of ventures. The Company will co-invest in entities that own multiple properties with various investors or with one partner. The Company may manage the ventures and collect asset and property management fees as well as incentive fees, otherwise known as profit participation, from its investment partners, or one of the other partners will manage the ventures for asset and property management fees as well as incentive fees. Depending on the structure of the venture, the Company’s voting interest may be different than its economic interest. As the Company does not control these ventures, the Company accounts for these investments under the equity method of accounting.
As a result of the Merger, the Company acquired an interest in four unconsolidated entities, the Duke JV, Goodman Europe JV, Goodman UK JV, and the CBRE Strategic Partners Asia, a real estate investment fund. The Company’s equity investment in the entities was fair valued on the Merger closing date, and the difference between the historical carrying value of the net assets and the fair value has been recorded as a basis difference. The basis difference will be amortized to equity in net income from joint ventures and equity investments over the remaining weighted-average useful life of the underlying assets of each entity.

Pursuant to the Goodman UK JV shareholder agreement, if a deadlock arises pertaining to a major decision regarding a specific property, either shareholder may exercise a buy-sell option in relation to the relevant property for the Goodman UK JV. Additionally, after the initial investment period, either shareholder wishing to exit the Goodman UK JV may exercise a buy-sell option with respect to its entire interest. The Goodman UK JV pays certain fees to certain Goodman Group subsidiaries in connection with the services they provide to the Goodman UK JV, including but not limited to investment advisory, development management and property management services. The Goodman Group is also entitled to a promoted interest in the Goodman UK JV.
As a result of the Gramercy European Property Fund’s acquisition of the Goodman Group’s 20.0% interest in the Goodman Europe JV, the Goodman Europe JV shareholder agreement, which previously had the same terms as that of the Goodman UK JV, was amended. In the amended Goodman Europe JV shareholder agreement, control is shared among joint venture partners based on ownership interest.

Due to its continuing equity interest, the Company maintains significant influence in the Goodman Europe JV, and as a result of both of these factors, the Company continues to account for its outstanding interest in the joint venture using the equity method. Pursuant to the amended Goodman Europe JV shareholder agreement, the Goodman Europe JV pays accounting and property management fees to certain Goodman Group subsidiaries and pays investment advisory and other management-related fees to the Gramercy European Property Fund in connection with the services these entities provide to the Goodman Europe JV.

(1)Represents the current interest rate as of June 30, 2016, including the swapped interest rate for loans that have interest rate swaps. The current interest rate is not adjusted to include the amortization of fair market value premiums or discounts.
(2)As of June 30, 2016, due to non-renewal of the tenant leases at these properties, the lenders have imposed a “cash trap” on the properties. As a result, cash flows from the properties will automatically be directed to the lenders to satisfy required debt service payments, fund reserves required by the mortgages, and fund additional cash reserves for future required payments, including final payments, until the properties’ leasing conditions are cured.
(3)These five mortgage loans are cross-collateralized.
(4)In accordance with the provisions of this loan, the property’s excess cash proceeds after the payment of debt service, impounds and budgeted operating expenses were held by the lender. In January 2016, this loan was paid in full.
(5)These mortgage loans were related to properties that were classified as held for sale as of December 31, 2015, and accordingly the mortgage loans were included within liabilities related to assets held for sale on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of December 31, 2015. These properties were sold and their loans were paid off during the six months ended June 30, 2016.
(6)During the first quarter of 2016, the Company adopted accounting guidance related to the presentation of deferred financing costs on the balance sheet and reclassified amounts from the deferred costs line to net against the liability for all periods presented, including for mortgage notes payable, as shown here. See Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” for further information.

Unsecured Debt
2015 Credit Facility and Term Loans
In December 2015, the Company entered into an agreement, or the Credit Agreement, for a new $1,900,000 credit facility, or the 2015 Credit Facility, consisting of an $850,000 senior unsecured revolving credit facility, or the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, and $1,050,000 term loan facility, or the 2015 Term Loan, with JPMorgan Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith Incorporated, and terminated Legacy Gramercy’s 2014 Credit Facility. The 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, consists of a $750,000 U.S. dollar revolving credit facility and a $100,000 multicurrency revolving credit facility. The 2015 Revolving Credit Facility matures in January 2020, but may be extended for two additional six-month periods upon the payment of applicable fees and satisfaction of certain customary conditions. Borrowings under the multicurrency loan denominated in euros are designated as a non-derivative net investment hedge to mitigate the risk from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Refer to Note 10, “Derivatives and Non-Derivative Hedging Instruments,” for further information on the hedge. The 2015 Term Loan consists of a $300,000 term loan facility that matures in January 2019 with one 12-month extension option, or the 3-Year Term Loan, and a $750,000 term loan facility that matures in January 2021, or the 5-Year Term Loan.
Outstanding borrowings under the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility incur interest at a floating rate based upon, at the Company’s option, either (i) adjusted LIBOR plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.875% to 1.55%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings, or (ii) the alternate base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.00% to 0.55%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings. The Company is also required to pay quarterly in arrears a 0.125% to 0.30% facility fee, depending on the Company’s credit ratings, on the total commitments under the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility. Outstanding borrowings under the 2015 Term Loan incur interest at a floating rate based upon, at the Company’s option, either (i) adjusted LIBOR plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.90% to 1.75%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings, or (ii) the alternate base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.00% to 0.75%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings. The alternate base rate is the greater of (x) the prime rate announced by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., (y) 0.50% above the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (z) the adjusted LIBOR for a one-month interest period plus 1.00%.
In December 2015, the Company also entered into a new $175,000 seven-year unsecured term loan with Capital One, N.A., or the 7-Year Term Loan, which matures in January 2023. Outstanding borrowings under the 7-Year Term Loan incur interest at a floating rate based upon, at the Company’s option, either (i) adjusted LIBOR plus an applicable margin ranging from 1.30% to 2.10%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings, or (iii) the alternate base rate plus an applicable margin ranging from 0.30% to 1.10%, depending on the Company’s credit ratings. The alternate base rate is the greatest of (x) the prime rate announced by Capital One, N.A., (y) 0.50% above the Federal Funds Effective Rate and (z) the adjusted LIBOR for a one-month interest period plus 1.00%.
During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company amended its 5-Year Term Loan and its 7-Year Term Loan in order to remove the 0.00% rate floor on the applicable LIBOR that existed in the original loan agreements. These unsecured borrowing facilities include a series of financial and other covenants that the Company has to comply with in order to borrow under the facilities. The Company was in compliance with the covenants under the facilities as of June 30, 2016. During the first quarter of 2016, the Company adopted accounting guidance related to the presentation of deferred financing costs on the balance sheet and reclassified amounts from the deferred costs line to net against the liability for all periods presented. Deferred financing costs associated with the Company’s credit facility remain in deferred costs on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. See Note 2, “Significant Accounting Policies,” for further information.

Senior Unsecured Notes
On December 17, 2015, the Company issued and sold $100,000 aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes, or the Senior Unsecured Notes, and on January 12, 2016, the Company issued and sold an additional $50,000 aggregate principal amount of the Senior Unsecured Notes in private placements. The Senior Unsecured Notes are guaranteed by the Company and bear interest at a rate of 4.97% per annum, with interest payable in arrears on June 17 and December 17 of each year until maturity. Payments commenced on June 17, 2016.
Exchangeable Senior Notes
On March 18, 2014, the Company issued $115,000 of 3.75% exchangeable senior notes, or the Exchangeable Senior Notes. The Exchangeable Senior Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Company’s operating partnerships and are guaranteed by the Company on a senior unsecured basis. The Exchangeable Senior Notes mature on March 15, 2019, unless redeemed, repurchased or exchanged in accordance with their terms prior to such date and will be exchangeable, under certain circumstances, for cash, for common shares or for a combination of cash and common shares, at the election of the Company’s operating partnerships. The Exchangeable Senior Notes will also be exchangeable prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the stated maturity date, at any time beginning on December 15, 2018, and also upon the occurrence of certain events. On or after March 20, 2017, in certain circumstances, the Company’s operating partnership may redeem all or part of the Exchangeable Senior Notes for cash at a price equal to 100.0% of the principal amount of the Exchangeable Senior Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the redemption date.
As of June 30, 2016, the Exchangeable Senior Notes have a current exchange rate of 41.5897 Units of Merger Consideration, or approximately 132.6628 of the Company’s common shares for each $1.0 principal amount of the Exchangeable Senior Notes, representing an exchange price of $7.54 per share of the Company’s common shares. The fair value of the Exchangeable Senior Notes was determined at issuance to be $106,689. The discount is being amortized to interest expense over the expected life of the Exchangeable Senior Notes. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Exchangeable Senior Notes were recorded as a liability at carrying value of $107,550 and $106,581, respectively, net of unamortized discount and deferred financing costs of $7,450 and $8,419, respectively. The fair value of the embedded exchange option of the Exchangeable Senior Notes was recorded in additional paid-in-capital within shareholders’ equity of $11,726 as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

8. Transactions with Trustee Related Entities and Related Parties
On June 30, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement to sell 74.9% of its outstanding 80.0% interest in the Goodman Europe JV to the Gramercy European Property Fund, in which the Company has a 14.2% as of June 30, 2016, has committed and funded total capital of $55,892 (€50,000), and for which the Company’s CEO is on the board of directors and also has capital commitments, as noted below. The Company sold 74.9% of its interest in the Goodman Europe JV to the Gramercy European Property Fund for gross proceeds of $148,884 (€134,336). The Company’s sale of 74.9% of its interest in the Goodman Europe JV resulted in the Company recording a gain of $5,341 primarily related to depreciation and amortization recorded since Merger closing date. This gain amount is recorded as a gain on sale of unconsolidated equity investment interests held with a related party on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. Following the sale transaction, the Company has a cumulative continuing 5.1% interest in the Goodman Europe JV. The transaction was entered into in order to achieve efficiencies from the combination of the two European platforms.

The Company’s CEO, Gordon F. DuGan, is on the board of directors of the Gramercy European Property Fund and has invested approximately $1,388 (€1,250) in capital to the Gramercy European Property Fund. The two Managing Directors of Gramercy Europe Asset Management have collectively invested approximately $1,388 (€1,250) in capital to the Gramercy European Property Fund. Foreign currency commitments have been converted into U.S. dollars based on (i) the foreign exchange rate at the closing date for completed transactions and (ii) the exchange rate that prevailed on June 30, 2016, in the case of unfunded commitments.
One of the properties acquired in December 2015 as part of the Merger was partially leased to Duke Realty, the Company’s partner in the Duke JV. Duke Realty acts as the managing member of the Duke JV and provides asset management, construction, development, leasing and property management services, for which it is entitled to receive fees as well as a promoted interest. From the Merger date through lease expiration in May 2016, Duke Realty leased 30,777 square feet of one of the Company’s office properties located in Minnesota which had an aggregate 324,296 rentable square feet. Duke Realty paid the Company $156 and $333 under the lease for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively. See Note 5 for more information on the Company’s transactions with the Duke JV.
The Company acquired three properties in January 2015 in an arms-length transaction from affiliates of KTR Capital Partners, a private industrial real estate investment company, for which one of the Company’s trustees, Jeffrey Kelter, served as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. The properties are located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, comprise an aggregate 450,000 square feet and were acquired for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $19,750.
9. Fair Value Measurements
The Company discloses fair value information, whether or not recognized in the financial statements, for which it is practicable to estimate that value. In cases where quoted market prices are not available, fair values are based upon the application of discount rates to estimated future cash flows based upon market yields or by using other valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is necessary to interpret market data and develop estimated fair value. Accordingly, fair values are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize on disposition of the financial instruments and other assets and liabilities measured at fair value. The use of different market assumptions and/or estimation methodologies may have a material effect on estimated fair value amounts.

(1)Retained CDO Bonds represent the CDOs’ subordinate bonds, preferred shares, and ordinary shares, which were retained subsequent to the disposal of Gramercy Finance and were previously eliminated in consolidation.
(2)Amounts include one and six real estate investments as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, classified as held for sale at Merger closing, which are included in discontinued operations.
(3)Long-term debt instruments are classified as Level III due to the significance of unobservable inputs which are based upon management assumptions.
(4)Amounts include mortgage notes payable on assets held for sale as of December 31, 2015, which had total carrying value of $260,704 and total fair value of $263,308 as of December 31, 2015. There were no mortgage notes payable on assets held for sale as of June 30, 2016.
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of assets and liabilities for which it is practicable to estimate the value:
Cash and cash equivalents, accrued interest, and accounts payable: These balances in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements reasonably approximate their fair values due to the short maturities of these items.
Retained CDO Bonds: Non-investment grade, subordinate CDO bonds, preferred shares and ordinary shares are presented on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at fair value. The fair value is determined by an internally developed discounted cash flow model. Refer to Note 2 for more information on these instruments.
Interest rate swaps: The Company’s interest rate swap agreements are carried at fair value in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements based upon third-party valuations. Refer to Note 10 for more information on these derivative instruments.

Forward currency forward contract: The Company’s forward currency forward contract is carried at fair value in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements based upon third-party valuations, which utilize quoted market prices of the same or similar instruments, adjusted for counterparty risk. Refer to Note 10 for more information on these derivative instruments.
Mortgage notes payable, unsecured term loans, unsecured revolving credit facilities and senior unsecured notes: These instruments are presented in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at amortized cost and not at fair value. The fair value of each instrument is estimated by a discounted cash flows model, using discount rates that best reflect current market rates for financings with similar characteristics and credit quality. Mortgage premiums and discounts are amortized to interest expense on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations using the effective interest method over the terms of the related notes. Refer to Note 6 for more information on these instruments.
Exchangeable Senior Notes: The Exchangeable Senior Notes are presented at amortized cost on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The fair value is determined based upon a discounted cash-flow methodology using discount rates that best reflect current market rates for instruments with similar with characteristics and credit quality. Refer to Note 6 for more information on these instruments.
CBRE Strategic Partners Asia: The Company’s unconsolidated equity investment, CBRE Strategic Partners Asia, is presented in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements at fair value. The investment manager of CBRE Strategic Partners Asia applies valuation techniques for the Company’s investment carried at fair value based upon the application of the income approach, the direct market comparison approach, the replacement cost approach or third-party appraisals to the underlying assets held in the unconsolidated entity in determining the net asset value attributable to the Company’s ownership interest therein. Refer to Note 2 and Note 5 for more information on these instruments.
Real estate investments designated as held for sale at Merger closing: The Company designated six properties as held for sale at the closing of the Merger on December 17, 2015. There was one property in this classification as of June 30, 2016 and six properties as of December 31, 2015. These properties are reported at estimated fair value, less costs to sell and are included in discontinued operations. Refer to Note 2 and Note 3 for more information on these instruments.
Disclosure about fair value measurements is based on pertinent information available to the Company at the reporting date. Although the Company is not aware of any factors that would significantly affect the reasonable fair value amounts, such amounts have not been comprehensively revalued for the purpose of these financial statements since June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, and current estimates of fair value may differ significantly from the amounts presented herein.
The following discussion of fair value was determined by the Company using available market information and appropriate valuation methodologies. Considerable judgment is necessary to interpret market data and develop estimated fair value. Accordingly, fair values are not necessarily indicative of the amounts the Company could realize on disposition of the assets or liabilities. Determining which category an asset or liability falls within the hierarchy requires significant judgment and the Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter.

Valuation of Level III Instruments
Derivative instruments: Interest rate swaps are valued with the assistance of a third-party derivative specialist, who uses a combination of observable market-based inputs, such as interest rate curves, and unobservable inputs which require significant judgment such as the credit valuation adjustments due to the risk of non-performance by both the Company and its counterparties. The most significant unobservable input in the fair valuation of derivative instruments is the credit valuation adjustment as it requires significant management judgment regarding changes in the credit risk of the Company or its counterparties, however the primary driver of the fair value of the interest rate swaps is the forward interest rate curve. Fair values of the Company’s derivative instruments were valued using a Black-Scholes model. Fair value of the Company’s embedded exchange option was determined using a probabilistic valuation model with the assistance of third-party valuation specialists.

Total unrealized gains (losses) from derivatives for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 were $(11,460) and $(33,649), respectively, in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Total unrealized gains (losses) from derivatives for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 were $1,468 and $(664), respectively, in accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).
Retained CDO Bonds: Retained CDO Bonds are valued on a recurring basis using an internally developed discounted cash flow model. Management estimates the timing and amount of cash flows expected to be collected and applies a discount rate equal to the yield that the Company would expect to pay for similar securities with similar risks at the valuation date. Future expected cash flows generated by management require significant assumptions and judgment regarding the expected resolution of the underlying collateral, which includes loans and other lending investments, real estate investments, and collateralized mortgage backed securities. The resolution of the underlying collateral requires further management assumptions regarding capitalization rates, lease-up periods, future occupancy rates, market rental rates, holding periods, capital improvements, net property operating income, timing of workouts and recoveries, loan loss severities and other factors. The models are most sensitive to the unobservable inputs such as the timing of a loan default or property sale and the severity of loan losses. Significant increases (decreases) in any of those inputs in isolation as well as any change in the expected timing of those inputs would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement. Due to the inherent uncertainty in the determination of fair value, the Company has designated its Retained CDO Bonds as Level III.
Investment in CBRE Strategic Partners Asia: The Company’s investment in CBRE Strategic Partners Asia is based on the Level III valuation inputs applied by the investment manager of CBRE Strategic Partners Asia, utilizing a mix of different approaches for valuing the underlying real estate related investments within the investment company. The approaches include the income approach, direct market comparison approach and the replacement cost approach for newer properties. For investments owned more than one year, except for investments under construction or incurring significant renovation, CBRE Strategic Partners Asia obtains a third-party appraisal. For investments in real estate under construction or incurring significant renovation, the valuation analysis is prepared by the investment manager of CBRE Strategic Partners Asia. The valuations are most sensitive to the unobservable inputs of discount rates, as well as capitalization rates an expected future cash flows, and significant increases (decreases) in these inputs would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement. On a quarterly basis, the Company obtains the financial results of CBRE Strategic Partners Asia and on an annual basis the Company receives audited financial statements.
Real estate investments classified as held for sale at Merger closing: Real estate investments classified as held for sale at the time of the Merger are reported at estimated fair value, less costs to sell. The fair value of real estate investments and their related lease intangibles is determined by an independent valuation firm using valuation techniques including the market approach, income approach, and cost approach. Key assumptions in the valuations, to which the fair value determinations are most sensitive, include discount and capitalization rates as well as expected future cash flows. Significant increases (decreases) in these inputs would result in a significantly lower (higher) fair value measurement. As the inputs are unobservable, the Company determined the inputs used to value this liability falls within Level III for fair value reporting.
Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

These assets were recorded at fair value, less costs to sell of $9,752 and $393,984 as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, and are included in discontinued operations. Refer to Note 3 for further information on these assets.
10. Derivatives and Non-Derivative Hedging Instruments
In June 2016, the Company entered into a foreign currency forward contract to mitigate its exposure to foreign currency exchange rate movements in the euro, specifically in relation to funds received on its sale of 74.9% of its 80.0% interest in the Goodman Europe JV in June 2016. The foreign currency forward is a derivative contract, through which the Company is committed to deliver a certain amount of currency at a set price on a specific date in the future, or the settlement date. The forward contract locked in the Company’s future currency exchange rate for the term of the contract, thus minimizing the Company’s exposure to rate fluctuations during this period. The contract is not designated as a hedging instrument.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company’s derivative instruments consist of interest rate swaps, which are cash flow hedges, and a foreign currency forward contract, which is not designated as a hedging instrument. Changes in the effective portion of fair value of derivatives designated as hedging instruments are recognized in other comprehensive income (loss) until the hedged item expires or is recognized in earnings. The ineffective portion of a hedging derivative’s change in fair value and the change in value of a non-hedging derivative instrument are immediately recognized in earnings. Changes in the fair value of the Company’s foreign currency forward contract are recognized in other income on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Derivative accounting may increase or decrease reported net income and shareholders’ equity, depending on future levels of LIBOR interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and other variables affecting the fair values of derivative instruments and hedged items, but will have no effect on cash flows, provided the contract is carried through to full term.
Borrowings on the Company’s foreign currency denominated tranche of the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility , which are designated as non-derivative net investment hedges, are recognized at par value based on the exchange rate in effect on the date of the draw. Subsequent changes in the exchange rate of the Company’s non-derivative net investment hedge are recognized as part of the cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment within other comprehensive income (loss). Refer to Note 2 and Note 9 for additional information on the Company’s derivatives and non-derivative hedging instruments, including the fair value measurement of these instruments, as applicable.
The following table summarizes the notional and fair value of the Company’s derivatives and hedging instruments at June 30, 2016. The fair value of the all of the Company’s derivatives is presented on its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets in derivative instruments, at fair value and the carrying value of the non-derivative net investment hedge is included in the balance of the Company’s 2015 Revolving Credit Facility. The notional value is an indication of the extent of the Company’s involvement in this instrument at that time, but does not represent exposure to credit, interest rate or market risks:

(1)Represents the exchange rate locked in by the Company for the term of the foreign currency forward contract. The Company settled the contract on July 6, 2016.
Through its interest rate swaps, the Company is hedging exposure to variability in future interest payments on its debt facilities. At June 30, 2016, the interest rate swap derivative instruments were reported at their fair value as a net liability of $36,357. Swap (gain) loss of $(2,564) and $(734) was recognized as interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations with respect to interest rate swap hedge ineffectiveness, or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness, which relates to the off-market

financing element associated with certain derivatives. As discussed in Note 6, during the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company amended its 5-Year Term Loan and its 7-Year Term Loan in order to remove the 0.00% rate floor on the applicable LIBOR that existed in the original loan agreements, and as a result, during the three months ended June 30, 2016 the Company reversed previously recorded hedge ineffectiveness of $2,564. No gain or loss was recognized with respect to hedge ineffectiveness or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company reclassified $271 and $631, respectively, from accumulated other comprehensive income into interest expense related to a derivative terminated in 2015. Over time, the realized and unrealized gains and losses held in accumulated other comprehensive income will be reclassified into earnings in the same periods in which the hedged interest payments affect earnings. During the next 12 months, the Company expects that $10,882 will be reclassified from other comprehensive income as an increase in interest expense for the Company’s interest rate swaps as of June 30, 2016. Additionally, the Company will recognize $3,197 in interest expense on a straight-line basis over the remaining original term of terminated swaps through June 2019, representing amortization of the remaining accumulated other comprehensive income balance related to the swap, and of this amount $1,087 will be recognized in interest expense during the next 12 months.
Through its foreign currency forward contract, the Company is mitigating its foreign exchange rate exposure to variability in the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate, specifically in relation to funds received on its sale of 74.9% of its interest in the Goodman Europe JV in June 2016, which are in euro-denominated funds as of June 30, 2016. At June 30, 2016, the foreign currency forward contract was reported at its fair value as a liability of $378 in derivative instruments on the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and because it is not designated as a hedging instrument, this value, which also represents its change in value during the period, was recognized as a reduction of other income on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The change in value of the euro-denominated asset underlying the contract was an increase of $228, thus the net impact recognized within other income on the Company’s the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations was a net loss of $150.
Through its non-derivative net investment hedge, which was entered into in September 2015, the Company is hedging exposure to changes in the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate of its net equity investment in the Gramercy European Property Fund, which has euros as its functional currency. At June 30, 2016, the non-derivative net investment hedge was reported at its carrying value as a net liability of $49,950, which is included in the balance of the senior unsecured revolving credit facility on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded net gain (loss) of $970 and $(66), respectively, in other comprehensive income (loss) from the impact of exchange rates related to the non-derivative net investment hedge. No gain or loss was recognized with respect to non-derivative net investment hedge ineffectiveness, or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness, in interest expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. When the non-derivative net investment is sold or substantially liquidated, the balance of the translation adjustment accumulated in other comprehensive income will be reclassified into earnings.
11. Shareholders’ Equity (Deficit)
The equity structure in the condensed consolidated financial statements following the reverse merger reflects the equity structure of the Company. As a result, the Company’s common shares outstanding have been adjusted retroactively for all prior periods presented computed on the basis of the number of shares outstanding multiplied by the exchange ratio of 3.1898 established in the Merger Agreement. As of June 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company’s authorized capital shares consist of 1,000,000,000 shares of beneficial interest, $0.01 par value per share, of which the Company is authorized to issue up to 990,000,000 common shares of beneficial interest, par value $0.01 per share, or common shares, and 10,000,000 preferred shares of beneficial interest, par value of $0.01, or preferred shares. As of June 30, 2016, 421,696,772 common shares and 3,500,000 preferred shares were issued and outstanding, respectively. All share, share price, and per share data has been updated retroactively to reflect the Merger exchange ratio of 3.1898.
During the three and six months ended June 2016, the Company’s common dividends are as follows:
Quarter Ended Record Date Payment Date Common dividend per share
March 31, 2016 March 31, 2016 April 15, 2016 $0.110
June 30, 2016 June 30, 2016 July 15, 2016 $0.110

In February 2016, the Company’s board of trustees approved a share repurchase program authorizing the Company to repurchase up to $100,000 of the Company’s outstanding common shares. Purchases under the program will be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined by the Company in its discretion and will be subject to economic and market conditions, stock price, applicable legal requirements and other factors. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company did not repurchase any shares.
In February 2015, Legacy Gramercy’s board of directors approved a 1-for-4 reverse stock split of its common stock and outstanding OP Units. The reverse stock split was effective after the close of trading on March 20, 2015, and the Company’s common stock began trading on a reverse split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange on March 23, 2015.
Preferred Shares
At June 30, 2016, the Company has 3,500,000 of its Series A Preferred Shares outstanding with a mandatory liquidation preference of $25.00 per share. Holders of the Series A Preferred Shares are entitled to receive annual dividends of $1.78125 per share on a quarterly basis and dividends are cumulative, subject to certain provisions. On or after August 15, 2019, the Company can, at its option, redeem the Series A Preferred Shares at par for cash.
Equity Plan Activities
In June 2016, the Company instituted its 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, which was approved by the Company’s board of trustees and shareholders. The 2016 Equity Incentive Plan allows for the following awards to be made: (i) stock options that qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code, (ii) stock options that do not qualify, (iii) stock appreciation rights, (iv) share awards, (v) restricted share units, and (vi) dividend equivalents and other equity awards, including LTIP Units. The aggregate number of common shares of the Company that may be issued or transferred under the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan is 12,000,000 shares, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The Company’s common shares that are issued or transferred under the 2016 Equity Plan may be authorized but unissued common shares of the Company or reacquired common shares of the Company, including common shares of the Company purchased by it on the open market for purposes of the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan. The 2016 Equity Incentive Plan became effective on June 23, 2016 and will terminate on the day immediately preceding the tenth anniversary of its effective date, unless sooner terminated by the board of trustees. As of June 30, 2016, there were 12,000,000 shares available for grant under the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan.
Following the Merger until the adoption of the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan in June 2016, the Company’s active equity incentive plan, from which share awards were issued, was the Chambers equity incentive plan, or the 2013 Equity Incentive Plan. The 2013 Equity Incentive Plan allowed for the following awards to be made: (i) stock options that qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code, (ii) stock options that do not qualify, (iii) stock appreciation rights, (iv) share awards, (v) phantom shares, and (vi) dividend equivalents and other equity awards. The Company’s 2004 Equity Incentive Plan, 2012 Inducement Plan, 2012 Outperformance Plan, and 2015 Equity Incentive Plan continued to exist following the Merger, however they became inactive and thus no new share awards will be issued out of any of those plans.
In connection with the adoption of the 2015 Equity Incentive Plan, seven senior officers were issued a total of 308,444 restricted shares in June 2015, 50.0% of which will vest on each of the fourth and fifth anniversaries of the grant date, subject to continued employment.
Effective at the closing of the Merger, the change in accelerated vesting control provisions of the 2012 Outperformance Plan were waived by all plan participants, and as a result the LTIP units will continue on, subject to the original service and performance conditions.

June 30, 2016

Through June 30, 2016, 2,908,116 restricted shares had been issued under the Company’s Equity Incentive Plans, of which 59.5% have vested. Except for certain performance based awards, the vested and unvested shares are currently entitled to receive distributions on common shares if declared by the Company. Holders of restricted shares are prohibited from selling such shares until they vest but are provided the ability to vote such shares beginning on the date of grant. Compensation expense of $604 and $1,087 was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, related to the issuance of restricted shares. Compensation expense of $253 and $498 was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, related to the issuance of restricted shares. Compensation expense of $6,270 will be recorded over the course of the next 39 months representing the remaining weighted average vesting period of equity awards issued under the Equity Incentive Plans as of June 30, 2016. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had 979,166 and 684,199 weighted-average unvested restricted shares outstanding, respectively.
Compensation expense of $488 and $976 was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively, for the 2012 Outperformance Plan. Compensation expense of $488 and $976 was recorded for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively, for the 2012 Outperformance Plan. Compensation expense of $1,950 will be recorded over the course of the next 12 months, representing the remaining weighted average vesting period of the awards issued under the 2012 Outperformance Plan as of June 30, 2016.
Deferred Stock Compensation Plan for Directors
The Legacy Gramercy’s Directors’ Deferral Program terminated upon consummation of the Merger. In connection with the closing of the Merger, on December 17, 2015 each outstanding phantom share granted under Legacy Gramercy’s Directors’ Deferral Program, was vested and, on the first business day of the month following the Merger closing, converted into the right to receive a number of the Company’s common shares, rounded to the nearest whole share, determined by multiplying the number of subject phantom shares by the Exchange Ratio of the Merger. As a result, the directors received an aggregate of $916 in cash and 410,713 in shares in January 2016. The portion paid out in cash was classified as a liability on the Consolidated Balance Sheets as of December 31, 2015.
Earnings per Share
The Company has adopted the two-class computation method, and thus includes all participating securities in the computation of basic shares for the periods in which the Company has net income available to vested common shares outstanding. A participating security is defined as an unvested share-based payment award containing non-forfeitable rights to dividends regardless of whether or not the awards ultimately vest or expire. Net losses are not allocated to participating securities unless the holder has a contractual obligation to share in the losses.

(1)As a result of the Merger, each outstanding share of common stock of Legacy Gramercy was converted into 3.1898 of a newly issued common share of the Company. Therefore, the historical data related to quarterly earnings per common share for the periods ended before December 31, 2015 have been adjusted by the Merger exchange ratio of 3.1898.
Diluted income (loss) per share assumes the conversion of all common share equivalents into an equivalent number of common shares if the effect is not anti-dilutive. Options were computed using the treasury share method. The Company only includes the effect of the excess conversion premium on its Exchangeable Senior Notes in the calculation of diluted earnings per share, as the Company has the intent and ability to settle the debt component of the Exchangeable Senior Notes in cash and the excess conversion premium in shares.
The weighted average price of the Company’s common shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 was above the exchange price of $7.54 for the periods and the Company had net income available to vested common shares outstanding during the periods, therefore, the potential dilutive effect of the excess conversion premium was included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. The weighted average price of the Company’s common shares for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015 was above the exchange price of $7.76 for the periods, however due to the net loss available to vested common shares outstanding during the periods, the excess conversion premium was excluded from the calculation of earnings per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015.

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, the Company excluded from its number of diluted shares used for EPS 48,051 share options, 2,209,912 unvested share based payment awards, 493,124 phantom share units, 1,548,246 OP Units, and 1,107,809 Exchangeable Senior Notes, because, due to the net loss from continuing operations excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest and adjusted for preferred dividends declared during the period, these shares were anti-dilutive during the period. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company excluded from its number of diluted shares used for EPS 49,062 share options, 2,198,126 unvested share based payment awards, 493,124 phantom share units, 1,624,396 OP Units, and 1,425,092 Exchangeable Senior Notes, because, due to the net loss from continuing operations excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest and adjusted for preferred dividends declared during the period, these shares were anti-dilutive during the period. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company excluded unvested restricted share awards of 544,288 and 532,502, respectively, from its weighted average basic shares outstanding due to the net loss from continuing operations excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interest and adjusted for preferred dividends declared during the period.

12. Noncontrolling Interest
Noncontrolling interests represent the common units of limited partnership interest in the Company’s Operating Partnership, or OP Units, not held by the Company as well as third-party equity interests in the Company’s other consolidated subsidiaries. OP Units are able to be redeemed at the election of the holder for cash equal to the then fair market value of one of the Company’s common shares, par value $0.01 per share, except that the Company may, at its election, acquire each OP Unit for one of its common shares. The OP Unit holders do not have any obligation to provide additional contributions to the partnership, nor do they have any decision making powers or control over the business of the Operating Partnership. The OP Unit holders do not have voting rights; however, they are entitled to receive dividends. The OP Unit redemption rights are outside of the Company’s control, and thus the OP Units are classified as a component of temporary equity and are shown in the mezzanine equity section of the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements. The Company is party by assumption to a registration rights agreement with the holders of the OP Units that requires the Company, subject to the terms and conditions and certain exceptions set forth therein, to file and maintain a registration statement relating to the issuance of shares of its common shares upon redemption of OP Units.

June 30, 2016

In April 2016, each of the outstanding common units of limited partnership interest not held by the Company or its subsidiaries, which represented interests in Legacy Gramercy’s operating partnership and were redeemable for 3.1898 of the Company’s common shares following the Merger, were exchanged for 3.1898 OP units, which are each redeemable for one of the Company’s common shares as described above. All references to OP Units in the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements refer to common units of limited partnership interest in Legacy Gramercy’s operating partnership prior to the exchange and to common units of limited partnership interest in GPT Operating Partnership LP following the exchange, and reflect the updated exchange ratio of one OP Unit redeemable for one of the Company’s common shares.
As of June 30, 2016, the noncontrolling interest unit holders owned 1,145,220 OP Units, which can be redeemed for 1,145,220 of the Company’s common shares. The outstanding OP Units as of June 30, 2016 represent an interest of approximately 0.27% in the Company. During the six months ended June 30, 2016 and the year ended December 31, 2015, 265,689 and 453,129 OP Units, respectively, were converted into common shares of the Company. At June 30, 2016, 1,145,220 common shares of the Company were reserved for issuance upon redemption of OP Units.
OP Units are recorded at the greater of cost basis or fair market value based on the closing share price of the Company’s common shares at the end of the reporting period. As of June 30, 2016, the value of the OP units was $10,559. The Company attributes a portion of its net income (loss) during each reporting period to noncontrolling interest based on the percentage ownership of OP Unit holders relative to the Company’s total outstanding common shares and OP Units. The Company recognizes changes in fair value in the OP Units through accumulated deficit, however decreases in fair value are recognized only to the extent that increases to the amount in temporary equity were previously recorded. The Company’s diluted earnings per share includes the effect of any potential shares outstanding from redemption of the OP Units.

a forward purchase contract. The Company’s remaining future commitment for the property at June 30, 2016 is approximately $20,182.
As of June 30, 2016, the Company has funded $55,892 (€50,000) to the Gramercy European Property Fund, representing its total funding commitment to the Gramercy European Property Fund. As of December 31, 2015, the Company had funded $25,663 (€23,160) to the Gramercy European Property Fund. See Note 5, “Unconsolidated Equity Investments,” for further information on the Gramercy European Property Fund. Foreign currency commitments have been converted into U.S. dollars based on (i) the foreign exchange rate at the closing date for completed transactions and (ii) the exchange rate that prevailed on December 31, 2015, in the case of unfunded commitments.
Legal Proceedings
The Company evaluates litigation contingencies based on information currently available, including the advice of counsel and the assessment of available insurance coverage. The Company will establish accruals for litigation and claims when a loss contingency is considered probable and the related amount is reasonably estimable. The Company will periodically review these contingencies which may be adjusted if circumstances change. The outcome of a litigation matter and the amount or range of potential losses at particular points may be difficult to ascertain. If a range of loss is estimated and an amount within such range appears to be a better estimate than any other amount within that range, then that amount is accrued.
Legacy Gramercy, its board of directors, Chambers and/or Merger Sub are named as defendants in two pending putative class action lawsuits brought by purported Legacy Gramercy stockholders challenging the Merger. Two suits that were separately filed in New York Supreme Court, New York County, captioned (i) Berliner v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Index No. 652424/2015 (filed July 9, 2015) and (ii) Gensler v. Baum, et al., Index No. 157432/2015 (filed July 22, 2015), have been consolidated into a single action under the caption In re Gramercy Property Trust Stockholder Litigation, Index No. 652424/2015 (the “New York Action”). In addition, four suits that were separately filed in Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Maryland, captioned (i) Jobin v. DuGan, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-003942 (filed July 27, 2015); (ii) Vojik v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004412 (filed August 25, 2015); (iii) Hoffbauer et al. v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., 24-C-15-004904 (filed September 24, 2015) (originally filed as two separate suits in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Maryland, captioned Plemons v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., Case No. 03-C-15-007943 (filed July 24, 2015) and Hoffbauer et al. v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., Case No. 03-C-15-008639 (filed August 12, 2015), and refiled as a single action in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County on September 24, 2015); and (iv) Morris v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004972 (filed September 28, 2015) have been consolidated into a single action under the caption Glenn W. Morris v. Gramercy Property Trust Inc. et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004972 (the “Maryland Action,” and together with the New York Action, the “Actions”). The complaints allege, among other things, that the directors of Legacy Gramercy breached their fiduciary duties to Legacy Gramercy stockholders by agreeing to sell the Company for inadequate consideration and agreeing to improper deal protection terms in the merger agreement, and that the preliminary joint proxy statement/prospectus filed with the SEC on Form S-4 on September 11, 2015 was materially incomplete and misleading. The complaints also allege that Chambers, Merger Sub and/or Legacy Gramercy aided and abetted these purported breaches of fiduciary duty. The amended complaint in the Morris consolidated action also asserts derivative claims on behalf of Legacy Gramercy for breach of fiduciary duty against the directors of Legacy Gramercy. Plaintiffs seek, among other things, an injunction barring the Merger, rescission of the Merger to the extent it is already implemented, declaratory relief, an award of damages and/or costs/attorney fees.
On December 7, 2015, the parties to the Actions entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”), which provides for the settlement of the Actions. While the defendants in the Actions continue to vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability or damage to any of the plaintiffs or the class of stockholders of Legacy Gramercy, and believe that no supplemental disclosure is required under the applicable law, in order to (i) avoid the burden, inconvenience, expense and distraction of further litigation in connection with the Actions, (ii) finally put to rest and terminate all of the claims that were or could have been asserted against the defendants in the Actions and (iii) permit the Merger to proceed without risk of the courts in New York or Maryland ordering an injunction or damages in connection with the Actions, Chambers and Legacy Gramercy agreed, without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, pursuant to the terms of the MOU, to make certain supplemental disclosures related to the proposed Merger, which were set forth in Legacy Gramercy’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with on December 7, 2015.

The MOU contemplates that the parties will enter into a stipulation of settlement. The stipulation of settlement will be subject to customary conditions, including, among other things, confirmatory discovery and court approval following notice to Legacy Gramercy stockholders. In the event that the parties enter into a stipulation of settlement, a hearing will be scheduled at which a court will consider the fairness, reasonableness and adequacy of the settlement. If the settlement is finally approved by the court, it will resolve and release all claims by stockholders of Legacy Gramercy challenging any aspect of the proposed Merger, the Merger Agreement and any disclosure made in connection therewith, pursuant to terms that will be set forth in the notice sent to Legacy Gramercy stockholders prior to final approval of the settlement. In addition, in connection with the settlement, the parties contemplate that plaintiffs’ counsel will file a petition for an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to be paid by Gramercy or its successor. There can be no assurance that the court will approve the settlement. In the event that the settlement is not approved or that the conditions are not satisfied, the settlement may be terminated.
On October 1, 2015, a putative class action lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Mercer County by a purported shareholder of Chambers. The action, captioned Elstein v. Chambers Street Properties et al., Docket No. L-002254-15 (the “New Jersey Action”), names as defendants Chambers, its board of trustees and Legacy Gramercy. The complaint alleges, among other things, that the trustees of Chambers breached their fiduciary duties to Chambers’ shareholders by agreeing to the Merger after a flawed sales process and by approving improper deal protection terms in the merger agreement, and that Legacy Gramercy aided and abetted these purported breaches of fiduciary duty. The complaint also alleges that the preliminary joint proxy statement/prospectus was materially misleading and incomplete. Plaintiffs seek, among other things, an injunction barring the Merger, rescission of the Merger to the extent it is already implemented, declaratory relief and an award of damages.
On December 3, 2015, the parties to the New Jersey Action entered into a Stipulation of Settlement providing for the settlement of the New Jersey Action. While the defendants in the New Jersey Action continue to vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability or damage to any of the plaintiffs or the class of shareholders of Chambers, and believe that no supplemental disclosure is required under the applicable law, in order to (i) avoid the burden, inconvenience, expense and distraction of further litigation in connection with the New Jersey Action, (ii) finally put to rest and terminate all of the claims that were or could have been asserted against the defendants in the New Jersey Action and (iii) permit the Merger to proceed without risk of the Superior Court of New Jersey ordering an injunction or damages in connection with the New Jersey Action, Chambers and Legacy Gramercy agreed, without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, pursuant to the terms of the Stipulation of Settlement, to make certain supplemental disclosures related to the proposed Merger, all of which were set forth in Legacy Gramercy’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with on December 7, 2015. The Stipulation of Settlement is subject to customary conditions, including court approval following notice to the Chambers shareholders. On April 4, 2016, the court granted preliminary approval of the settlement. On July 1, 2016 the court issued a final order approving the settlement.
The defendants believe the lawsuits are without merit.
In December 2010, the Company sold its 45.0% joint venture interest in the leased fee of the 2 Herald Square property in New York, New York, for approximately $25,600 plus assumed mortgage debt of approximately $86,100, or the 2 Herald Sale Transaction. Subsequent to the closing of the transaction, the New York City Department of Finance, or the NYC DOF, and New York State Department of Taxation, or the NYS DOT, issued notices of determination assessing, in the case of the NYC DOF notice, approximately $2,924 of real property transfer tax, plus interest, and, in the case of the NYS DOT notice, approximately $446 of real property transfer tax, plus interest, collectively, the Transfer Tax Assessments, against the Company in connection with the 2 Herald Sale Transaction.
In September 2013, the Company filed a petition challenging the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment with the New York City Tax Appeal Tribunal. In July 2014, the Company filed a similar petition challenging the NYS DOT Transfer Tax Assessment. Trial of the Company’s NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment appeal was completed in December 2014.
In April 2015, the New York City Tax Appeals Tribunal, or the NYC Tribunal, rendered an opinion denying the Company’s petition challenging the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment and ruled that the Company is liable for the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment. In July 2015, the Company appealed the adverse decision of the NYC Tribunal. In July 2016, the Company’s appeal of the adverse NYC Tribunal decision was denied. The Company has until November 2016 to elect to file a further appeal of the adverse NYC Tribunal decision.

In June 2016, the NY State Division of Tax Appeals ruled in the Company’s favor in connection with the NYS DOT Transfer Tax Assessment. The Company anticipates that the NYC DOF will appeal this adverse ruling and that the matter will be set for trial by late 2016 or early 2017.
In April 2015, to stop the accrual of additional interest while the Company’s appeals are pending, the Company paid the NYC DOF $4,025 in full satisfaction of the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment and the NYS DOT $617 in full satisfaction of the NYS DOF Transfer Tax Assessment. There was no additional interest recorded for the matter for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. There was $$0 and $68 of additional interest recorded in discontinued operations for the matter for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively.
In connection with the Company’s property acquisitions and the Merger, the Company has determined that there is a risk it will have to pay future amounts to tenants related to continuing operating expense reimbursement audits. The Company has estimated a range of loss and determined that its best estimate of total loss is $8,000, including $1,000 related to the Merger, which has been accrued and recorded in other liabilities as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015. The Company has determined that there is a reasonable possibility that a loss may be incurred in excess of $8,000 and estimates this range to be $8,000 to $13,000.
In addition, the Company and/or one or more of its subsidiaries is party to various litigation matters that are considered routine litigation incidental to its business, none of which are considered material.
Office Leases
The Company has several office locations, which are each subject to operating lease agreements. These office locations include the Company’s corporate office at 521 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York, and the Company’s regional offices located in Horsham, Pennsylvania, Clayton, Missouri, Chicago, Illinois, Dallas, Texas and London, United Kingdom. Additionally, in April 2016, the Company entered into a lease for a new corporate office location at 90 Park Avenue, New York, New York. The Company will relocate to the new office upon completion of improvements to the space, which is projected to be in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Capital and Operating Ground Leases
Certain properties acquired are subject to ground leases, which are accounted for as operating and capital leases. The ground leases have varying ending dates, renewal options and rental rate escalations, with the latest leases extending to June 2053. Future minimum rental payments to be made by the Company under these noncancelable ground leases, excluding increases resulting from increases in the consumer price index, are as follows:

14. Income Taxes
The Company has elected to be taxed as a REIT, and as such, generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income that it distributes to its stockholders in accordance with REIT requirements. If the Company fails to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, it will then be subject to U.S. federal income taxes until it is able to qualify for REIT status again, however, the Company believes that it is organized and will operate in such a manner as to qualify for treatment as a REIT and the Company intends to operate in the foreseeable future in such a manner so that it will qualify as a REIT for U.S. federal income tax purposes. The Company may, however, be subject to certain state and local taxes. Additionally, the Company’s TRSs are subject to federal, state and local taxes. The Company’s asset and property management business, Gramercy Asset Management, partially conducts its business through a wholly-owned TRS. In addition to the limitation on the Company’s use of its net operating losses under Section 382, since the Company uses separate subsidiary REITs and taxable REIT subsidiaries to conduct different aspects of its business, losses incurred by the individual subsidiary REITs and TRSs are only available to offset taxable income derived by each respective subsidiary REIT or TRS.
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 the Company recorded $2,700 and $3,403 of income tax expense, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded $17 and $1,131 of income tax expense, respectively. Tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 in continuing operations is comprised of federal, state and local taxes primarily attributable to Gramercy Asset Management.
To the extent the Company incurs any interest or penalties on its material uncertain tax positions, these amounts will be recognized in the financial statements as interest expense and operating expense, respectively. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company did not incur any material interest or penalties. 
15. Segment Reporting
As of June 30, 2016, the Company has determined that it has two reportable operating segments: Asset Management and Investments/Corporate. The reportable segments are determined based upon the management approach, which looks to the Company’s internal organizational structure. The Company’s lines of business require different support infrastructures. All significant inter-segment balances and transactions have been eliminated.
The Asset Management segment includes substantially all of the Company’s activities related to asset and property management of commercial properties located throughout the United States and Europe. The Asset Management segment generates revenues from fee income related to the management agreements for properties owned by third parties throughout the United States and Europe.
The Investments/Corporate segment includes all of the Company’s activities related to the investment and ownership of commercial properties located throughout the United States and Europe. The Investments/Corporate segment generates revenues from rental revenues from properties owned by the Company, either directly or in unconsolidated equity investments.
The Company evaluates performance based on the following financial measures for each segment:

ITEM 2.MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
(Unaudited, amounts in thousands, except share and per share data)
Overview
Gramercy Property Trust, or the Company or Gramercy, a Maryland real estate investment trust, or REIT, is a leading global investor and asset manager of commercial real estate. We specialize in acquiring and managing single-tenant, net leased industrial, office, and specialty properties. We focus on income producing properties leased to high quality tenants in major markets in the United States and Europe.
We earn revenues primarily through three sources: (i) rental revenues on properties that we own in the United States, (ii) asset management revenues on properties owned by third parties in the United States and Europe and (iii) pro-rata rental revenues on our unconsolidated equity investments in the United States, Europe, and Asia.
On December 17, 2015, Chambers Street Properties, or Chambers, a Maryland REIT, completed a merger, or the Merger, with Gramercy Property Trust Inc., or Legacy Gramercy, a Maryland corporation, pursuant to which Legacy Gramercy shareholders received 3.1898 common shares of beneficial interest of Chambers for each share of common stock of Legacy Gramercy held. Following the Merger, Chambers changed its name to Gramercy Property Trust and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange, or NYSE, using the “GPT” stock symbol. Legacy Gramercy’s executive management team manages the combined company.
In the Merger, Chambers was the legal acquirer and Legacy Gramercy was the “accounting acquirer” for financial reporting purposes. Thus, the financial information set forth herein subsequent to the close of the Merger on December 17, 2015 reflects results of the combined company, and financial information prior to the close of the Merger reflects Legacy Gramercy results. For this reason, period to period comparisons may not be meaningful.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we acquired 22 properties aggregating 3,857,982 square feet for a total purchase price of $296,059. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, we acquired 25 properties aggregating 8,669,258 square feet for a total purchase price of $348,809. Additionally, on June 30, 2016, we received 100.0% ownership of seven properties from our joint venture with Duke Realty through a distribution of real estate assets by the joint venture, which have an aggregate 4,189,630 square feet and total fair value of $276,100.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we sold four properties aggregating 539,805 square feet for total gross proceeds of $116,200. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, we sold 10 properties aggregating 2,634,999 square feet for total gross proceeds of $647,700. Additionally, on June 30, 2016, we sold 74.9% of our 80.0% interest in our European joint venture with the Goodman Group to our unconsolidated equity investment in Europe, the Gramercy European Property Fund, for gross proceeds of $148,884 (€134,336).
As of June 30, 2016, our asset management business, which operates under the name Gramercy Asset Management, managed approximately $1,100,000 of commercial properties for third parties, including approximately $837,000 of assets in Europe.
As of June 30, 2016, we owned interests (either directly or in an unconsolidated equity investment) in 327 properties containing an aggregate of approximately 65,240,943 rentable square feet.
As of June 30, 2016, our wholly-owned portfolio of net leased properties is summarized as follows:
Properties Number of Properties Rentable Square Feet Occupancy
Industrial 172
 42,216,785

Office 108

We have elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or the Internal Revenue Code, and generally will not be subject to U.S. federal income taxes to the extent we distribute our taxable income, if any, to our shareholders. We have in the past established, and may in the future establish TRSs to effect various taxable transactions. Those TRSs would incur U.S. federal, state and local taxes on the taxable income from their activities.
We were formed as a Maryland REIT in March 2004 and commenced operations in July 2004 following an initial private placement of our common shares. In May 2013, we listed our common shares on the NYSE under the symbol “CSG.” Following the Merger in December 2015, we changed our NYSE trading symbol to “GPT.” We conduct all of our operations through GPT Operating Partnership LP, our Operating Partnership. We are the sole general partner of our Operating Partnership. Our Operating Partnership conducts our commercial real estate investment business through various wholly-owned entities and our realty management business through a wholly-owned TRS.
Unless the context requires otherwise, all references to “Company,” “Gramercy,” “we,” “our,” and “us” mean Legacy Gramercy and one or more of our subsidiaries for the period prior to the Merger closing and Gramercy Property Trust and one or more of our subsidiaries for periods following the Merger closing.

We manage properties for companies including KBS and the Gramercy European Property Fund.
We have an integrated asset management platform within Gramercy Asset Management to consolidate responsibility for, and control over, leasing, lease administration, property management, operations, construction management, tenant relationship management and property accounting. To the extent that we provide asset management services for third-party property owners, we provide such services in consultation with and at the direction of such owners.

The increase of $58,952 in rental revenue is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
The increase of $14,078 in third-party management fees is primarily attributable to the increase of $13,940 in incentive fees earned from KBS during the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015.
The increase of $12,167 in operating expense reimbursements is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
The decrease of $22 in investment income is primarily attributable to changes in expected cash flows on our Retained CDO Bonds.
For the three months ended June 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015, other income is primarily comprised of realized foreign currency exchange gain (loss) and miscellaneous property related income.
The equity in net income (loss) of unconsolidated equity investments of $(168) and $123 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, represents our proportionate share of the income (loss) generated by our unconsolidated equity investments.

Property operating expenses are comprised of expenses directly attributable to our real estate portfolio. Property operating expenses include property related costs which we are responsible for during the lease term but can be passed through to the tenant as operating expense reimbursement revenue. The increase of $13,938 is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
Property management expenses are comprised of costs related to our asset and property management business. The increase of $980 in property management expenses is primarily related to increased fees resulting from operating expense refunds given this year.
The increase of $35,822 in depreciation and amortization expense is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
The increase of $3,227 in general and administrative expense is primarily related to increased legal and professional fees and as well as increased compensation costs related to the growth of the Company.
The increase of $857 in acquisition and merger-related expenses is attributable to the acquisition of 22 properties in the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the acquisition of 16 properties and $2,353 in merger-related costs in the three months ended June 30, 2015.
The increase of $9,181 in interest expense is primarily due to increased borrowings on our unsecured revolving credit facility and term loans, our Unsecured Senior Notes and the mortgages we assumed on our real estate acquisitions subsequent to December 31, 2014.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded a gain of $7,229 related to the non-cash distribution of seven properties from our Duke JV during the period.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded loss on extinguishment of debt of $1,356 related to the early termination fees on the two mortgage loans that were paid off during the period.
The provision for taxes was $2,700 and $17 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The increase is primarily attributable to an increase in incentive fees recognized during the three months ended June 30, 2016.
During the three months ended June 30, 2015, we realized net gains on disposal of $(201) related to the disposal of three properties.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded a gain of $(5,341) related to the sale of our 74.9% interest in the Goodman Europe JV during the period.

The increase of $119,857 in rental revenue is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
The increase of $10,938 in third-party management fees is primarily attributable to an increase of $12,435 in incentive fees earned from KBS during the six months ended June 30, 2016. This increase is partially offset by a decrease in disposition, property management, asset management, and accounting fees earned from our contracts with KBS and other third parties primarily due to property sales from the KBS portfolio subsequent to June 30, 2015 and the cessation of one of our third-party management contracts following the sale of nearly all of its properties as of December 31, 2015.
The increase of $26,611 in operating expense reimbursements is due to our wholly-owned property portfolio of 289 properties as of June 30, 2016 compared to 166 properties as of June 30, 2015.
The increase of $183 in investment income is primarily attributable to changes in expected cash flows on our Retained CDO Bonds.
For the six months ended June 30, 2016 and June 30, 2015, other income is primarily comprised of and realized foreign currency exchange gain (loss) and miscellaneous property related income.
The equity in net income (loss) of unconsolidated equity investments of $(2,923) and $122 for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, represents our proportionate share of the income (loss) generated by our unconsolidated equity investments.

The increase in net income of the same store properties for the three months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the three months ended June 30, 2015 is primarily due to an increase in rental revenue related to the hyper-amortization of below market lease liabilities for leases which were terminated prior to expiration. The increase in rental revenue is partially offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization related to the hyper-amortization of in-place lease intangible assets associated with the same leases.

The decrease in net income of the same-store properties for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to the six months ended June 30, 2015 is primarily due to an increase in rental revenue related to the hyper-amortization of below market lease liabilities for leases which were terminated prior to expiration. The increase in rental revenue is partially offset by an increase in depreciation and amortization related to the hyper-amortization of in-place lease intangible assets associated with the same leases.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Liquidity is a measurement of our ability to meet cash requirements, including ongoing commitments to fund acquisitions of real estate assets, repay borrowings, pay dividends and other general business needs. In addition to cash on hand, our primary sources of funds for short-term and long-term liquidity requirements, including working capital, distributions, debt service and additional investments, consist of: (i) cash flow from operations; (ii) borrowings under our unsecured revolving credit facility and term loans; (iii) proceeds from our common equity, preferred equity and debt offerings; and, (iv) new financings. We believe these sources of financing will be sufficient to meet our short-term and long-term liquidity requirements.
Our cash flow from operations primarily consists of rental revenue, expense reimbursements from tenants, and third-party management fees. Our cash flow from operations is our principal source of funds that we use to pay operating expenses, debt service, general and administrative expenses, operating capital expenditures, dividends, and acquisition and merger-related expenses. Our ability to fund our short-term liquidity needs, including debt service and general operations (including employment related benefit expenses), through cash flow from operations can be evaluated through the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows included in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
Our ability to borrow under our Unsecured Credit Facility and Term Loan facilities is subject to our ongoing compliance with a number of customary financial covenants including our maximum secured and unsecured leverage ratios, minimum fixed charge coverage ratios, consolidated adjusted net worth values, unencumbered asset values, occupancy rates, and portfolio lease terms.
We have several unconsolidated equity investments with partners who we consider to be financially stable. Our unconsolidated equity investments are financed with non-recourse debt or equity. We believe that cash flows from the underlying real estate investments and capital commitments will be sufficient to fund the capital needs of our unconsolidated equity investments.
To maintain our qualification as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code, we must distribute annually at least 90.0% of our taxable income. This distribution requirement limits our ability to retain earnings and thereby replenish or increase capital for operations. As of the date of this filing, we expect that our cash on hand and cash flow from operations will be sufficient to satisfy our anticipated short-term and long-term liquidity needs as well as our recourse liabilities, if any.
Cash Flows
Net cash provided by operating activities increased $40,522 to $78,095 for the six months ended June 30, 2016 compared to $37,573 for the same period in 2015. Operating cash flow was generated primarily by net rental revenue from our real estate investments, management fees, and distributions from unconsolidated equity investments.
Net cash provided by investing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $337,250 compared to net cash used by investing activities of $794,120 during the same period in 2015. The increase in cash flow provided by investing activities in 2016 is primarily attributable to proceeds received from the disposition of 10 properties during the six months ended June 30, 2016, net of any assumed mortgages.
Net cash used by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2016 was $358,366 as compared to net cash provided by financing activities of $600,040 during the same period in 2015. The decrease in cash flow is primarily attributable to payoffs of certain mortgage loans, paydowns made on the unsecured revolving credit facility, and increased payment of dividends in 2016, which is offset by proceeds from the sale of common shares in 2015.

Equity Structure
Our equity structure following the reverse merger transaction reflects the equity structure of Chambers, the surviving corporation. As a result, our common shares outstanding have been adjusted retroactively for all prior periods presented computed on the basis of the number of shares outstanding multiplied by the Exchange Ratio of 3.1898 established in the Merger Agreement. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, our authorized capital shares consists of 1,000,000,000 shares of beneficial interest, $0.01 par value per share, of which we are authorized to issue up to 990,000,000 common shares of beneficial interest, par value $0.01 per share of our common shares and 10,000,000 preferred shares of beneficial interest, par value of $0.01, or preferred shares. There were 236,710,763 common shares issued at the closing of the Merger, representing the number of Legacy Gramercy’s outstanding shares multiplied by the Exchange Ratio of 3.1898, and there were 3,500,000 shares of 7.125% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Shares issued, which were exchanged from Legacy Gramercy’s outstanding 7.125% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Preferred Stock at Merger closing. As of June 30, 2016, 421,696,772 common shares and 3,500,000 preferred shares were issued and outstanding, respectively.
In June 2016, we instituted our 2016 Equity Incentive Plan, which was approved by our board of trustees and shareholders. The 2016 Equity Incentive Plan allows for the following awards to be made: (i) stock options that qualify as incentive stock options under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code, (ii) stock options that do not qualify, (iii) stock appreciation rights, (iv) share awards, (v) restricted share units, and (vi) dividend equivalents and other equity awards, including LTIP Units. The aggregate number of our common shares that may be issued or transferred under the 2016 Equity Incentive Plan is 12,000,000 shares, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The 2016 Equity Incentive Plan became effective on June 23, 2016 and will terminate on the day immediately preceding the tenth anniversary of its effective date, unless sooner terminated by the board of trustees.
In February 2015, the board of directors of legacy Gramercy approved a 1-for-4 reverse stock split of our common stock and outstanding OP Units. The reverse stock split was effective after the close of trading on March 20, 2015, and our common stock began trading on a reverse split-adjusted basis on the New York Stock Exchange on March 23, 2015.
Share Repurchase Program
In February 2016, our board of trustees approved a share repurchase program authorizing us to repurchase up to $100,000 of our outstanding common shares. Purchases under the program will be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The timing, manner, price and amount of any repurchases will be determined at our discretion and will be subject to economic and market conditions, stock price, applicable legal requirements and other factors. The program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. For the six months ended June 30, 2016, we did not repurchase any shares.
Market Capitalization
At June 30, 2016, our consolidated market capitalization was $6,159,978 based on a common share price of $9.22 per share and the closing price of our common shares on the New York Stock Exchange on June 30, 2016. Market capitalization includes consolidated debt and common and preferred shares.
Indebtedness
Mortgage Loans     
Certain of our real estate assets are subject to mortgage loans. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, we assumed $45,958 of non-recourse mortgages in connection with 32 real estate acquisitions and two properties we were distributed from the Duke JV, and also entered into one non-recourse mortgage for $9,550 related to a prior-period real estate acquisition. During the year ended December 31, 2015, we assumed $618,169 of non-recourse mortgages in connection with 42 real estate acquisitions, of which $464,292 related to mortgages on 29 properties acquired in connection with the Merger.
During the three months ended June 30, 2016, we paid off the debt on 2 properties encumbered by mortgage loans and during the six months ended June 30, 2016, we paid off the debt on eight properties encumbered by mortgage loans and transferred one property encumbered by a mortgage loan. As a result of the loan payoffs and transfer, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded net losses on early extinguishment of debt of $(1,356) and $(7,113), including net gains on extinguishment of debt of $0 and $1,930 within discontinued operations, respectively, related to unamortized deferred financing costs and mortgage premiums and discounts that were immediately expensed

71


upon termination as well as early termination fees incurred for the extinguishments. We did not pay off any mortgage loans during the three and six months ended June 30, 2015. Our mortgage loans include a series of financial and other covenants that we have to comply with in order to borrow under them. We were in compliance with the covenants under the mortgage loan facilities as of June 30, 2016.
2015 Credit Facility and Term Loans
At the close of the Merger on December 17, 2015, both Legacy Gramercy and Chambers terminated the Legacy Gramercy unsecured credit facilities and entered into an agreement, or the Credit Agreement, for a new $850,000 senior unsecured revolving credit facility and $1,050,000 term loan facility, or the 2015 Term Loan with JPMorgan Chase Securities LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner and Smith Incorporated. The $850,000 senior unsecured revolving credit facility, or the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, consists of a $750,000 U.S. dollar revolving credit facility and a $100,000 multicurrency revolving credit facility. The 2015 Term Loan consists of a $300,000 term loan facility that matures in January 2019 with one 12-month extension, or the 3-Year Term Loan, and a $750,000 term loan facility that matures in January 2021, or the 5-Year Term Loan. The 2015 Revolving Credit Facility matures in January 2020, but may be extended for two additional six month periods upon the payment of applicable fees and satisfaction of certain customary conditions. Net proceeds from the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility were used to repay Legacy Gramercy’s unsecured credit facilities consisting of a $200,000 senior term loan and a $200,000 senior revolving credit facility, as well as for general corporate purposes. Borrowings under the multicurrency loan denominated in euros are designated as a non-derivative net investment hedge to mitigate the risk from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Refer to Note 10 of the accompanying financial statements for further information on the hedge. At the close of the Merger on December 17, 2015, we also entered into a new $175,000 seven-year unsecured term loan with Capital One, N.A., or the 7-Year Term Loan, which matures in January 2023.
During the six months ended June 30, 2016, we amended our 5-Year Term Loan and our 7-Year Term Loan in order to remove the 0.00% rate floor on the applicable LIBOR that existed in the original loan agreements. Our unsecured borrowing facilities include a series of financial and other covenants that we have to comply with in order to borrow under the facilities. We were in compliance with the covenants under the facilities as of June 30, 2016. As of June 30, 2016, there were borrowings of $169,950 outstanding under the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, including $49,950 (€20,000) on the multicurrency tranche, borrowings of $1,050,000 outstanding under the 2015 Term Loan, and borrowings of $175,000 outstanding under the 7-Year Term Loan.
Senior Unsecured Notes
On December 17, 2015, we issued and sold $100,000 aggregate principal amount of senior unsecured notes, or the Senior Unsecured Notes, and on January 12, 2016 we issued and sold an additional $50,000 aggregate principal amount of the Senior Unsecured Notes in private placements. The Senior Unsecured Notes are guaranteed by us and bear interest at a rate of 4.97% per annum, with interest payable in arrears on June 17 and December 17 of each year, commencing June 17, 2016, until the maturity date of December 17, 2024.
Exchangeable Senior Notes
On March 18, 2014, we issued $115,000 of 3.75% Exchangeable Senior Notes. The Exchangeable Senior Notes are senior unsecured obligations of the Legacy Gramercy operating partnership and are guaranteed by us on a senior unsecured basis. The Exchangeable Senior Notes mature on March 15, 2019, unless redeemed, repurchased or exchanged in accordance with their terms prior to such date and will be exchangeable, under certain circumstances, for cash, for common shares or for a combination of cash and common shares, at the Legacy Gramercy operating partnership’s election. The Exchangeable Senior Notes will also be exchangeable prior to the close of business on the second scheduled trading day immediately preceding the stated maturity date, at any time beginning on December 15, 2018, and also upon the occurrence of certain events. On or after March 20, 2017, in certain circumstances, the Legacy Gramercy operating partnership may redeem all or part of the Exchangeable Senior Notes for cash at a price equal to 100% of the principal amount of the Exchangeable Senior Notes to be redeemed, plus accrued and unpaid interest up to, but excluding, the redemption date.
As of June 30, 2016, the Exchangeable Senior Notes have a current exchange rate of 41.5897 units of Merger consideration, or Units of Merger Consideration, where one Unit of Merger Consideration represents 3.1898 of our common shares, or approximately 132.6628 of our common shares for each $1.0 principal amount of the Exchangeable Senior Notes. The fair value of the Exchangeable Senior Notes was determined at issuance to be $106,689. The discount is being amortized to interest expense over the expected life of the Exchangeable Senior Notes. As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Exchangeable Senior Notes were recorded as a liability at carrying value of $107,550 and $106,581, respectively, net of unamortized discount and deferred financing costs of $7,450 and $8,419, respectively. The fair value of the embedded exchange option of the Exchangeable Senior Notes was recorded in additional paid-in-capital within shareholders’ equity of $11,726 as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

72


Derivatives and Non-Derivative Hedging Instruments
In June 2016, we entered into a foreign currency forward contract to mitigate our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate movements in the euro, specifically in relation to funds received on the sale of 74.9% of our 80.0% interest in the Goodman Europe JV in June 2016, which are in euro-denominated funds as of June 30, 2016. The foreign currency forward is a derivative contract, through which we are committed to deliver a specific amount of currency at a certain price on a specified date in the future, or the settlement date. The forward contract locked in our future currency exchange rate for the term of the contract, thus minimizing our exposure to rate fluctuations during this period. The contract is not designated as a hedging instrument.
As of June 30, 2016, our derivative instruments consist of interest rate swaps, which are cash flow hedges, and a foreign currency forward contract, which is not designated as a hedging instrument. Changes in the effective portion of fair value of the derivatives are recognized in other comprehensive income (loss) until the hedged item expires or is recognized in earnings. The ineffective portion of a hedging derivative’s change in fair value and the change in value of a non-hedging derivative instrument are immediately recognized in earnings. Changes in the fair value of our foreign currency forward contract are recognized in other income on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. Derivative accounting may increase or decrease reported net income and shareholders’ equity, depending on future levels of LIBOR interest rates, foreign exchange rates, and other variables affecting the fair values of derivative instruments and hedged items, but will have no effect on cash flows, provided the contract is carried through to full term. Borrowings on our foreign currency denominated tranche of the 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, which are designated as non-derivative net investment hedges, are recognized at par value based on the exchange rate in effect on the date of the draw. Subsequent changes in the exchange rate of our non-derivative net investment hedge are recognized as part of the cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment within other comprehensive income (loss). Refer to Note 2 and Note 9 of the accompanying financial statements for additional information on our derivatives and non-derivative hedging instruments, including the fair value measurement of these instruments, as applicable.

The following table summarizes the notional and fair value of our derivatives and hedging instruments at June 30, 2016. The fair value of the derivatives is presented in our balance sheet in derivative instruments, at fair value and the carrying value of the non-derivative net investment hedge is included in the balance of our 2015 Revolving Credit Facility. The notional value is an indication of the extent of our involvement in this instrument at that time, but does not represent exposure to credit, interest rate or market risks.

(1)Represents the exchange rate we locked in for the term of the foreign currency forward contract. We settled the contract on July 6, 2016.
Through our interest rate swaps, we are hedging exposure to variability in future interest payments on our debt facilities. At June 30, 2016, the interest rate swap derivative instruments were reported at their fair value as a net liability of $36,357. Swap loss of $(2,564) was recognized as interest expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations with respect to interest rate swap hedge ineffectiveness, or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness, which relates to the off-market financing element associated with certain derivatives. As discussed in the Unsecured Debt section above, during the six months ended June 30, 2016, we amended our 5-Year Term Loan and our 7-Year Term Loan in order to remove the 0.00% rate floor on the applicable LIBOR that existed in the original loan agreements, and as a result, we reversed previously recorded hedge ineffectiveness of $2,564 during the three months ended June 30, 2016. No gain or loss was recognized with respect to hedge ineffectiveness or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015.
No gain or loss was recognized with respect to hedge ineffectiveness or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, we reclassified $271 and $631, respectively, from accumulated other comprehensive income into interest expense related to a derivative terminated in 2015. Over time, the realized and unrealized gains and losses held in accumulated other comprehensive income will be reclassified into earnings in the same periods in which the hedged interest payments affect earnings. During the next 12 months, we expect that $10,882 will be reclassified from other comprehensive income as an increase in interest expense for our interest rate swaps as of June 30, 2016. Additionally, we will recognize $3,197 in interest expense on a straight-line basis over the remaining original term of terminated swaps through June 2019, representing amortization of the remaining accumulated other comprehensive income balance related to the swap, and of this amount, $1,087 will be recognized in interest expense during the next 12 months.
Through our foreign currency forward contract, we are mitigating our foreign exchange rate exposure to variability in the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate, specifically in relation to funds received on the sale of 74.9% of our interest in

74


the Goodman Europe JV in June 2016. At June 30, 2016, the foreign currency forward contract was reported at its fair value as a liability of $378 in derivative instruments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and because it is not designated as a hedging instrument, this value, which also represents its change in value during the period, was recognized as a reduction of other income on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The change in value of the euro-denominated asset underlying the contract was an increase of $228, thus the net impact recognized within other income on the Company’s the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations was a net loss of $150.
Through our non-derivative net investment hedge, which was entered into in September 2015, we are hedging exposure to changes in the euro-U.S. dollar exchange rate of our net equity investment in the Gramercy European Property Fund, which has euros as its functional currency. At June 30, 2016, the non-derivative net investment hedge was reported at our carrying value as a net liability of $49,950, which is included in the balance of the senior unsecured revolving credit facility on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets. During the six months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded a net loss of $970 in other comprehensive income (loss) from the impact of exchange rates related to the non-derivative net investment hedge. No gain or loss was recognized with respect to non-derivative net investment hedge ineffectiveness, or to amounts excluded from ineffectiveness, in interest expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the six months ended June 30, 2016. When the non-derivative net investment is sold or substantially liquidated, the balance of the translation adjustment accumulated in other comprehensive income will be reclassified into earnings.

75


Contractual Obligations
We are obligated to fund capital expenditures related to our real estate investments, which primarily consist of expenditures to maintain assets, tenant improvement allowances and other construction or expansion obligations under tenant leases, and leasing commissions. As of June 30, 2016, we had commitments relating to tenant improvement allowances and funding obligations under leases totaling approximately $21,500 that are expected to be funded over the next five years. Additionally, we are obligated to fund the development of Proportion Foods, a build-to-suit property in Round Rock, Texas, which is a consolidated VIE, and upon substantial completion of the development to acquire the property through a forward purchase contract. Our remaining future commitment for the property at June 30, 2016 is approximately $20,182.
As of June 30, 2016, we have funded $55,892 (€50,000) to the Gramercy European Property Fund, representing our total funding commitment to the Gramercy European Property Fund. As of December 31, 2015, we had funded $25,663 (€23,160) to the Gramercy European Property Fund. Since inception, all equity investors, including Gramercy, have collectively committed and funded $395,213 (€352,500) in equity capital to the Gramercy European Property Fund. As of June 30, 2016, the commitments of all equity investors to the Gramercy European Property Fund have been fully funded. See Note 5, “Unconsolidated Equity Investments,” in the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for further information on the Gramercy European Property Fund. Foreign currency commitments have been converted into U.S. dollars based on (i) the foreign exchange rate at the closing date for completed transactions and (ii) the exchange rate that prevailed on June 30, 2016, in the case of unfunded commitments.
Combined aggregate principal maturities and future minimum payments of our unsecured debt obligations, non-recourse mortgages, Senior Unsecured Notes, Exchangeable Senior Notes, and ground leases, in addition to associated interest payments, as of June 30, 2016 are as follows:

Off-Balance-Sheet Arrangements
We have off-balance-sheet investments, including joint ventures and equity investments. These investments all have varying ownership structures. Substantially all of our joint venture and equity investment arrangements are accounted for under the equity method of accounting as we have the ability to exercise significant influence, but not control over the operating and financial decisions of these joint venture and equity investment arrangements. Our off-balance-sheet arrangements and financial results are discussed in detail in Note 5 in the accompanying financial statements.

Dividends 
To maintain our qualification as a REIT, we must pay annual dividends to our shareholders of at least 90% of our REIT taxable income, determined before taking into consideration the dividends paid deduction and net capital gains. Before we pay any dividend, whether for U.S. federal income tax purposes or otherwise, which would only be paid out of available cash, we must first meet both our operating requirements and scheduled debt service on our mortgages and loans payable. Dividends declared by the Company during 2015 and 2016 are as follows:

Transactions with Trustee Related Entities and Related Parties
On June 30, 2016, we entered into an agreement to sell 74.9% of our outstanding 80% interest in the Goodman Europe JV to the Gramercy European Property Fund, which we own 14.2% as of June 30, 2016, have committed capital of $55,892 (€50,000), and for which our CEO is on the board of directors and also has capital commitments, as noted below. We sold 74.9% of our interest in the Goodman Europe JV to the Gramercy European Property Fund for gross proceeds of $148,884 (€134,336). The sale of 74.9% of our interest in the Goodman Europe JV resulted in us recording a gain of $5,341 primarily related to depreciation and amortization recorded since merger closing date. This gain amount is recorded as a gain on sale of unconsolidated equity investment interests held with a related party on our Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. Following the sale transaction, we have a continuing 5.1% interest in the Goodman Europe JV. The transaction was entered into in order to achieve efficiencies from the combination of the two European platforms.
Our CEO, Gordon F. DuGan, is on the board of directors of the Gramercy European Property Fund and has invested approximately $1,388 (€1,250) in capital to the Gramercy European Property Fund. The two Managing Directors of Gramercy Europe Asset Management have collectively invested approximately $1,388 (€1,250) in capital to the Gramercy European Property Fund. Foreign currency commitments have been converted into U.S. dollars based on (i) the foreign exchange rate at the closing date for completed transactions and (ii) the exchange rate that prevailed on June 30, 2016, in the case of unfunded commitments.
One of the properties acquired in December 2015 as part of the Merger was partially leased to Duke Realty, our partner in the Duke JV. Duke Realty acts as the managing member of the Duke JV and provides asset management, construction, development, leasing and property management services, for which it is entitled to receive fees as well as a promoted interest. From the Merger date through lease expiration in May 2016, Duke Realty leased 30,777 square feet of one of our office properties located in Minnesota which had an aggregate 324,296 rentable square feet. Duke Realty paid us $156,000 and $333,000 under the lease for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, respectively.
Three of the properties we acquired in January 2015 for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $19,750, which comprised an aggregate 450,000 square feet and are located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were acquired from affiliates of KTR Capital Partners, a private industrial real estate investment company, for which one of our trustees served as Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures 
We use the following non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are useful to investors as a key supplemental measure of our operating performance: funds from operations attributable to common shareholders and unitholders, or

78


FFO, core funds from operations attributable to common shareholders and unitholders, or Core FFO, and adjusted funds from operations attributable to common shareholders and unitholders, or AFFO. We present FFO because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our operating performance and believe that it is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs. We also use FFO as one of several criteria to determine performance-based incentive compensation for members of our senior management, which may be payable in cash or equity awards. The revised White Paper on FFO approved by the Board of Governors of the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, defines FFO as net income (loss) (determined in accordance with GAAP), excluding impairment write-downs of investments in depreciable real estate and investments in in-substance real estate investments and sales of depreciable operating properties, plus real estate-related depreciation and amortization (excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), less distributions to noncontrolling interests and gains/losses from discontinued operations and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
(excluding amortization of deferred financing costs), less distributions to noncontrolling interests and gains/losses from discontinued operations and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures.
Core FFO and AFFO are presented excluding property acquisition costs, loss on extinguishment of debt, other-than-temporary impairments on retained bonds, and other one-time charges. Our AFFO also excludes non-cash share-based compensation expense, amortization of above- and below-market leases, amortization of deferred financing costs, amortization of lease inducement costs, non-real estate depreciation and amortization, amortization of free rent received at property acquisition, straight-line rent, and these AFFO adjustments as they pertain to unconsolidated equity investments. We believe that Core FFO and AFFO are useful supplemental measures regarding our operating performances as they provide a more meaningful and consistent comparison of our operating performance.
FFO, Core FFO and AFFO do not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income (determined in accordance with GAAP), as an indication of our financial performance, or to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity, nor is it entirely indicative of funds available to fund our cash needs, including our ability to make cash distributions. Our calculation of FFO may be different from the calculation used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

ITEM 3A.    QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURE ABOUT MARKET RISK
(dollar amounts in thousands)
Market Risk
Market risk includes risks that arise from changes in interest rates, credit, commodity prices, equity prices, foreign currency exchange rates, and other market changes that affect market sensitive instruments. In pursuing our business plan, we expect that the primary market risks to which we will be exposed are real estate, interest rate, credit, and foreign currency exchange risks. These risks are highly sensitive to many factors, including governmental monetary and tax policies, domestic and international economic and political considerations and other factors that are beyond our control.
Generally, we do not use derivative instruments to hedge credit/market risks or for speculative purposes. However, from time to time, we may enter into foreign currency forward contracts to hedge our foreign currency cash flow exposures.
Real Estate Risk
Commercial property values and net operating income derived from such properties are subject to volatility and may be affected adversely by a number of factors, including, but not limited to, national, regional and local economic conditions, local real estate conditions (such as an oversupply of retail, industrial, office or other commercial or multi-family space), changes or continued weakness in specific industry segments, construction quality, age and design, demographic factors, retroactive changes to building or similar codes, and increases in operating expenses (such as energy costs). We may seek to mitigate these risks by employing careful business selection, rigorous underwriting and credit approval processes and attentive asset management.
Interest Rate Risk
Interest rate risk is highly sensitive to many factors, including governmental monetary and tax policies, domestic and international economic and political considerations and other factors beyond our control. Our operating results will depend in large part on differences between the income from our assets and our borrowing costs. Our real estate assets generate income principally from fixed long-term leases and we are exposed to changes in interest rates primarily from floating rate borrowing arrangements. We expect that we will primarily finance our investment in commercial real estate with fixed rate, non-recourse mortgage financing, however, to the extent that we use floating rate borrowing arrangements, our net income from our real estate investments will generally decrease if LIBOR increases. We have used, and may continue to use, interest rate caps or swaps to manage our exposure to interest rate changes. We currently have a 2015 Revolving Credit Facility, several term loans and several mortgage notes payable which are based upon a floating rate which have an aggregate outstanding balance of $1,446,691 at June 30, 2016, of which $976,741 is hedged effectively by interest rate swaps which we believe will mitigate the interest rate risk related to these borrowings.

Base case  
+100 bps $(1,201)
+200 bps $(2,402)
+300 bps $(3,603)
Credit Risk
Credit risk refers to the ability of each tenant in our portfolio of real estate investments to make contractual lease payments on the scheduled due dates. We seek to reduce credit risk of our real estate investments by entering into long-term leases with tenants after a careful evaluation of credit worthiness as part of our property acquisition process. If defaults occur, we employ our asset management resources to mitigate the severity of any losses and seek to relet the property. In the event of a significant rising interest rate environment and/or economic downturn, tenant delinquencies and defaults may increase and result in credit losses that would materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

85


Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk
We have investments, either directly or in an unconsolidated equity investment, in Europe and Canada and we operate an asset management business and have capital commitments to an equity investment in Europe. As a result, we are subject to risk from the effects of exchange rate risk from the effects of exchange rate movements in the euro, the British pound sterling, and the Canadian dollar, which may affect future costs and cash flows. We hedge our foreign currency exposure related to our foreign investments primarily by financing our investments in the local currency denominations and through the use of net investment hedge instruments on these financings. Additionally, we may enter into foreign currency forward contracts to manage our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate movements in the euro. We are generally a net payer of various foreign currencies (we pay out more cash than we receive), and therefore our foreign operations benefit from a weaker U.S. dollar, and are adversely affected by a stronger U.S. dollar, relative to the foreign currency.
As of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we had outstanding borrowings of $49,950 (€45,000) and $21,724 (€20,000), respectively, under the foreign currency denominated tranche of our Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility, which we designated as a non-derivative net investment hedge, beginning in September 2015, to mitigate our risk from fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. Our unhedged net investment in foreign currencies was $2,095 and $1,661 as of June 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, based on the period ending U.S. dollar values of the hedge of $49,950 and $21,724, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, we recorded net losses of $8,686 and $2,567, respectively, in other comprehensive income (loss) as the portion of the foreign currency net investment non-derivative hedging instrument used to hedge the currency exposure of our unconsolidated equity investment in the Gramercy European Property Fund which qualifies as a non-derivative net investment hedge under ASC Topic 815. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2016, we recognized realized foreign currency transaction gains (losses) of $(186) and $(81), respectively, and no unrealized foreign currency transaction gains or losses. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, we recognized net realized foreign currency transaction gains (losses) of $4 and $10, respectively, and no unrealized foreign currency transaction gains or losses. Foreign currency transaction gains and losses are included in other income on the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations.
In June 2016, we entered into a foreign currency forward contract to mitigate our exposure to foreign currency exchange rate movements in the euro, specifically in relation to funds received on the sale of 74.9% of our interest in the Goodman Europe JV in June 2016, which are in euro-denominated funds as of June 30, 2016. The foreign currency forward is a derivative contract, through which we are committed to deliver a specific amount of currency at a certain price on a specified date in the future. The forward contract locked in our future currency exchange rate for the term of the contract, thus minimizing our exposure to rate fluctuations during this period. The contract is not designated as a hedging instrument because there is no difference in the timing of gain or loss recognition on the hedging instrument and the hedged item. At June 30, 2016, the foreign currency forward contract was reported at its fair value as a liability of $378 in derivative instruments on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and because it is not designated as a hedging instrument, this value, which also represents its change in value during the period, was recognized as a reduction of other income on the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations. The change in value of the euro-denominated asset underlying the contract was an increase of $228, thus the net impact recognized within other income on the Company’s the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations was a net loss of $150.

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time frame specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure based closely on the definition of “disclosure controls and procedures” in Rule 13a-15(e). Notwithstanding the foregoing, a control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that it will detect or uncover failures within our company to disclose material information otherwise required to be set forth in our periodic reports. Also, we may have investments in certain unconsolidated entities. As we do not control these entities, our disclosure controls and procedures with respect to such entities are necessarily substantially more limited than those we maintain with respect to our consolidated subsidiaries.
As of the end of the period covered by this report, we carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation of such internal control that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART IIOTHER INFORMATION
ITEM 1.LEGAL PROCEDINGS
Legacy Gramercy, its board of directors, Chambers and/or Merger Sub are named as defendants in two pending putative class action lawsuits brought by purported Legacy Gramercy stockholders challenging the Merger. Two suits that were separately filed in New York Supreme Court, New York County, captioned (i) Berliner v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Index No. 652424/2015 (filed July 9, 2015) and (ii) Gensler v. Baum, et al., Index No. 157432/2015 (filed July 22, 2015), have been consolidated into a single action under the caption In re Gramercy Property Trust Stockholder Litigation, Index No. 652424/2015 (the “New York Action”). In addition, four suits that were separately filed in Circuit Court for Baltimore City, Maryland, captioned (i) Jobin v. DuGan, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-003942 (filed July 27, 2015); (ii) Vojik v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004412 (filed August 25, 2015); (iii) Hoffbauer et al. v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., 24-C-15-004904 (filed September 24, 2015) (originally filed as two separate suits in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County, Maryland, captioned Plemons v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., Case No. 03-C-15-007943 (filed July 24, 2015) and Hoffbauer et al. v. Chambers Street Properties, et al., Case No. 03-C-15-008639 (filed August 12, 2015), and refiled as a single action in the Circuit Court for Baltimore County on September 24, 2015); and (iv) Morris v. Gramercy Property Trust, et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004972 (filed September 28, 2015) have been consolidated into a single action under the caption Glenn W. Morris v. Gramercy Property Trust Inc. et al., Case No. 24-C-15-004972 (the “Maryland Action,” and together with the New York Action, the “Actions”). The complaints allege, among other things, that the directors of Legacy Gramercy breached their fiduciary duties to Legacy Gramercy stockholders by agreeing to sell the Company for inadequate consideration and agreeing to improper deal protection terms in the merger agreement, and that the preliminary joint proxy statement/prospectus filed with the SEC on Form S-4 on September 11, 2015 was materially incomplete and misleading. The complaints also allege that Chambers, Merger Sub and/or Legacy Gramercy aided and abetted these purported breaches of fiduciary duty. The amended complaint in the Morris consolidated action also asserts derivative claims on behalf of Legacy Gramercy for breach of fiduciary duty against the directors of Legacy Gramercy. Plaintiffs seek, among other things, an injunction barring the Merger, rescission of the Merger to the extent it is already implemented, declaratory relief, an award of damages and/or costs/attorney fees.
On December 7, 2015, the parties to the Actions entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”), which provides for the settlement of the Actions. While the defendants in the Actions continue to vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability or damage to any of the plaintiffs or the class of stockholders of Legacy Gramercy, and believe that no supplemental disclosure is required under the applicable law, in order to (i) avoid the burden, inconvenience, expense and distraction of further litigation in connection with the Actions, (ii) finally put to rest and terminate all of the claims that were or could have been asserted against the defendants in the Actions and (iii) permit the Merger to proceed without risk of the courts in New York or Maryland ordering an injunction or damages in connection with the Actions, Chambers and Legacy Gramercy agreed, without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, pursuant to the terms of the MOU, to make certain supplemental disclosures related to the proposed Merger, which were set forth in Legacy Gramercy’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with on December 7, 2015.
The MOU contemplates that the parties will enter into a stipulation of settlement. The stipulation of settlement will be subject to customary conditions, including, among other things, confirmatory discovery and court approval following notice to Legacy Gramercy stockholders. In the event that the parties enter into a stipulation of settlement, a hearing will be scheduled at which a court will consider the fairness, reasonableness and adequacy of the settlement. If the settlement is finally approved by the court, it will resolve and release all claims by stockholders of Legacy Gramercy challenging any aspect of the proposed Merger, the Merger Agreement and any disclosure made in connection therewith, pursuant to terms that will be set forth in the notice sent to Legacy Gramercy stockholders prior to final approval of the settlement. In addition, in connection with the settlement, the parties contemplate that plaintiffs’ counsel will file a petition for an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to be paid by Gramercy or its successor. There can be no assurance that the court will approve the settlement. In the event that the settlement is not approved or that the conditions are not satisfied, the settlement may be terminated.
On October 1, 2015, a putative class action lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Mercer County by a purported shareholder of Chambers. The action, captioned Elstein v. Chambers Street Properties et al., Docket No. L-002254-15 (the “New Jersey Action”), names as defendants Chambers, its board of trustees and Legacy Gramercy. The complaint alleges, among other things, that the trustees of Chambers breached their fiduciary duties to Chambers’ shareholders by agreeing to the Merger after a flawed sales process and by approving improper deal protection terms in the merger agreement, and that Legacy Gramercy aided and abetted these purported breaches of fiduciary duty. The complaint also alleges that the preliminary joint proxy statement/prospectus was materially misleading and incomplete. Plaintiffs seek,

88


among other things, an injunction barring the Merger, rescission of the Merger to the extent it is already implemented, declaratory relief and an award of damages.
On December 3, 2015, the parties to the New Jersey Action entered into a Stipulation of Settlement providing for the settlement of the New Jersey Action. While the defendants in the New Jersey Action continue to vigorously deny all allegations of wrongdoing, fault, liability or damage to any of the plaintiffs or the class of shareholders of Chambers, and believe that no supplemental disclosure is required under the applicable law, in order to (i) avoid the burden, inconvenience, expense and distraction of further litigation in connection with the New Jersey Action, (ii) finally put to rest and terminate all of the claims that were or could have been asserted against the defendants in the New Jersey Action and (iii) permit the Merger to proceed without risk of the Superior Court of New Jersey ordering an injunction or damages in connection with the New Jersey Action, Chambers and Legacy Gramercy agreed, without admitting any liability or wrongdoing, pursuant to the terms of the Stipulation of Settlement, to make certain supplemental disclosures related to the proposed Merger, all of which were set forth in Legacy Gramercy’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with on December 7, 2015. The Stipulation of Settlement is subject to customary conditions, including court approval following notice to the Chambers shareholders. On April 4, 2016, the court granted preliminary approval of the settlement. On July 1, 2016 the court issued a final order approving the settlement.
The defendants believe the lawsuits are without merit.    
In December 2010, we sold our 45% joint venture interest in the leased fee of the 2 Herald Square property in New York, New York, for approximately $25,600 plus assumed mortgage debt of approximately $86,100, or the 2 Herald Sale Transaction. Subsequent to the closing of the transaction, the New York City Department of Finance, or the NYC DOF, and New York State Department of Taxation, or the NYS DOT, issued notices of determination assessing, in the case of the NYC DOF notice, approximately $2,924 of real property transfer tax, plus interest, and, in the case of the NYS DOT notice, approximately $446 of real property transfer tax, plus interest, collectively, the Transfer Tax Assessments, against us in connection with the 2 Herald Sale Transaction.
In September 2013, we filed a petition challenging the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment with the New York City Tax Appeal Tribunal. In July 2014, we filed a similar petition challenging the NYS DOT Transfer Tax Assessment. Trial of our NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment appeal was completed in December 2014.
In April 2015, the New York City Tax Appeals Tribunal, or the NYC Tribunal, rendered an opinion denying our petition challenging the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment and ruled that we are liable for the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment. In July 2015, we appealed the adverse decision of the NYC Tribunal. In July 2016, our appeal of the adverse NYC Tribunal decision was denied. We have until November 2016 to elect to file a further appeal of the adverse NYC Tribunal decision.
In June 2016, the NY State Division of Tax Appeals ruled in our favor in connection with the NYS DOT Transfer Tax Assessment. We anticipate that the NYC DOF will appeal this adverse ruling and that the matter will be set for trial by late 2016 or early 2017.
In April 2015, to stop the accrual of additional interest while our appeal is pending, we paid the NYC DOF $4,025 in full satisfaction of the NYC DOF Transfer Tax Assessment and the NYS DOT $617 in full satisfaction of the NYS DOF Transfer Tax Assessment. There was no additional interest recorded in discontinued operations for the matter for the three and six months ended June 30, 2016. There was $0 and $68 of additional interest recorded in discontinued operations for the matter for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively.
In connection with our property acquisitions and the Merger, we determined that there is a risk we will have to pay future amounts to tenants related to continuing operating expense reimbursement audits. We have estimated a range of loss and determined that its best estimate of total loss is $8,000, including $1,000 related to the Merger, which has been accrued and recorded in other liabilities as of June 30, 2016. We have determined that there is a reasonable possibility that a loss may be incurred in excess of $8,000 and estimates this range to be $8,000 to $13,000.
In addition, we and/or one or more of our subsidiaries are party to various litigation matters that are considered routine litigation incidental to its business, none of which are considered material.
