Inland must deliver a written response by September 17, 2012 of its intention to either buy Lexington's interest in NLS or sell its interest in NLS to Lexington.

Lexington believes FFO is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of REITs, many of which present FFO when reporting their results. FFO is intended to exclude generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") historical cost depreciation and amortization of real estate and related assets, which assumes that the value of real estate diminishes ratably over time. Historically, however, real estate values have risen or fallen with market conditions. As a result, FFO provides a performance measure that, when compared year over year, reflects the impact to operations from trends in occupancy rates, rental rates, operating costs, development activities, interest costs and other matters without the inclusion of depreciation and amortization, providing perspective that may not necessarily be apparent from net income. The National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Inc. ("NAREIT") defines FFO as "net income (or loss) computed in accordance with GAAP, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of property, plus real estate depreciation and amortization and after adjustments for unconsolidated partnerships and joint ventures." NAREIT recently clarified its computation of FFO to exclude impairment charges on depreciable real estate owned directly or indirectly. FFO does not represent cash generated from operating activities in accordance with GAAP and is not indicative of cash available to fund cash needs. Lexington presents "Reported Company funds from operations" or "Reported Company FFO," which differs from FFO because it includes Lexington's operating partnership units, Lexington's 6.50% Series C Cumulative Convertible Preferred Shares, and Lexington's 6.00% Convertible Notes because these securities are convertible, at the holder's option, into Lexington's common shares. Management believes this is appropriate and relevant to securities analysts, investors and other interested parties because Lexington presents Reported Company FFO on a company-wide basis as if all securities that are convertible, at the holder's option, into Lexington's common shares, are converted. Lexington also presents "Company funds from operations, as adjusted" or "Company FFO, as adjusted," which adjusts Reported Company FFO for certain items which Management believes are not indicative of the operating results of its real estate portfolio. Management believes this is an appropriate presentation as it is frequently requested by security analysts, investors and other interested parties. Since others do not calculate funds from operations in a similar fashion, Reported Company FFO and Company FFO, as adjusted, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures as reported by others. Reported Company FFO and Company FFO, as adjusted, should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of our operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity.2 Reported Company Funds Available for Distribution ("FAD") is calculated by making adjustments to Company FFO, as adjusted, for (1) straight-line rent revenue, (2) lease incentive amortization, (3) amortization of above/below market leases, (4) cash paid for tenant improvements, (5) cash paid for lease costs, (6) non-cash general and administrative expenses, and (7) non-cash interest, net. Although FAD may not be comparable to that of other REITs, Lexington believes it provides a meaningful indication of its ability to fund cash needs. FAD is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be viewed as an alternative measurement of operating performance to net income, as an alternative to net cash flows from operating activities or as a measure of liquidity.CONTACT: Investor or Media Inquiries, T.
