CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
Certain statements contained in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q of Columbia Property Trust, Inc. ("Columbia Property Trust," "we," "our," or "us"), other than historical facts may constitute "forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (set forth in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934). Columbia Property Trust intends for all such forward-looking statements presented in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q ("Form 10-Q"), or that management may make orally or in writing from time to time, to be covered by the applicable safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in those acts.
Such statements in this current Form 10-Q include, among other things, information about possible or assumed future results of the business and our financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, plans, strategies, prospects, and objectives. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as "may," "will," "expect," "intend," "anticipate," "estimate," "believe," "continue," or other similar words. As forward-looking statements, these statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including known and unknown risks, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or anticipated. These risks, uncertainties, and other factors include, without limitation:
risks affecting the real estate industry (such as the inability to enter into new leases, dependence on tenants' financial condition, and competition from other owners of real estate);
risks relating to our ability to maintain and increase property occupancy rates and rental rates;
adverse economic or real estate market developments in our target markets;
risks relating to the use of debt to fund acquisitions;
availability and terms of financing;
ability to refinance indebtedness as it comes due;
sensitivity of our operations and financing arrangements to fluctuations in interest rates;
reductions in asset valuations and related impairment charges;
risks associated with joint ventures;
risks relating to repositioning our portfolio;
risks relating to construction and redevelopment activities;
risks relating to acquisition and disposition activities;
risks associated with our ability to continue to qualify as a real estate investment trust ("REIT");
potential liability for uninsured losses and environmental contamination;
potential adverse impact of market interest rates on the market price for our securities; and
risks associated with our dependence on key personnel whose continued service is not guaranteed.
For further discussion of these and additional risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ from expectation, see Item 1A, Risk Factors, in our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we can give no assurances that our expectations will be achieved. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date this Form 10-Q is filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). We do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

The consolidated financial statements of Columbia Property Trust have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X, and do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the statements for the unaudited interim periods presented include all adjustments, which are of a normal and recurring nature, necessary for a fair and consistent presentation of the results for such periods. Results for these interim periods are not necessarily indicative of a full year's results. For additional information on Columbia Property Trust's unconsolidated joint ventures, which are accounted for using the equity method of accounting, see Note 4, Unconsolidated Joint Ventures. Columbia Property Trust's consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Columbia Property Trust, Columbia Property Trust OP, and any variable-interest entity in which Columbia Property Trust or Columbia Property Trust OP was deemed the primary beneficiary. With respect to entities that are not variable interest entities, Columbia Property Trust's consolidated financial statements also include the accounts of any entity in which Columbia Property Trust, Columbia Property Trust OP, or their subsidiaries own a controlling financial interest and any limited partnership in which Columbia Property Trust, Columbia Property Trust OP, or their subsidiaries own a controlling general partnership interest. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes included in Columbia Property Trust's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 (the "2017 Form 10-K").
Fair Value Measurements
Columbia Property Trust estimates the fair value of its assets and liabilities (where currently required under GAAP) consistent with the provisions of Accounting Standard Codification 820, Fair Value Measurements ("ASC 820"). Under this standard, fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid upon transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date, under current market conditions. While various techniques and assumptions can be used to estimate fair value depending on the nature of the asset or liability, the accounting standard for fair value measurements and disclosures provides the following fair value technique parameters and hierarchy, depending upon availability:
Level 1 – Assets or liabilities for which the identical term is traded on an active exchange, such as publicly traded instruments or futures contracts.
Level 2 – Assets or liabilities valued based on observable market data for similar instruments.
Level 3 – Assets or liabilities for which significant valuation assumptions are not readily observable in the market. Such assets or liabilities are valued based on the best available data, some of which may be internally developed. Significant assumptions may include risk premiums that a market participant would consider.

Real Estate Assets
Columbia Property Trust is required to make subjective assessments as to the useful lives of its depreciable assets. To determine the appropriate useful life of an asset, Columbia Property Trust considers the period of future benefit of the asset. These assessments have a direct impact on net income. The estimated useful lives of its assets by class are as follows:
Buildings
  
40 years
Building and site improvements
  
5-25 years
Tenant improvements
  
Shorter of economic life or lease term
Intangible lease assets
  
Lease term
Assets Held for Sale
Columbia Property Trust classifies properties as held for sale according to Accounting Standard Codification 360, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets ("ASC 360"). According to ASC 360, properties having separately identifiable operations and cash flows are considered held for sale when all of the following criteria are met:
Management, having the authority to approve the action, commits to a plan to sell the property.
The property is available for immediate sale in its present condition subject only to terms that are usual and customary for sales of such property.
An active program to locate a buyer and other actions required to complete the plan to sell the property have been initiated.
The property is being actively marketed for sale at a price that is reasonable in relation to its current fair value.
Actions required to complete the plan indicate that it is unlikely that significant changes to the plan will be made or that the plan will be withdrawn.
The sale of the property is probable (i.e., typically subject to a binding sale contract with a non-refundable deposit), and transfer of the property is expected to qualify for recognition as a completed sale within one year.
As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, none of Columbia Property Trust's properties met the criteria to be classified as held for sale in the accompanying balance sheet.
Evaluating the Recoverability of Real Estate Assets
Columbia Property Trust continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate that the carrying amounts of its real estate and related intangible assets, of both operating properties and properties under redevelopment, may not be recoverable. When indicators of potential impairment are present that suggest that the carrying amounts of real estate assets and related intangible assets and liabilities may not be recoverable, Columbia Property Trust assesses the recoverability of these assets and liabilities by determining whether the respective carrying values will be recovered through the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected from the use of the assets and their eventual disposition. In the event that such expected undiscounted future cash flows do not exceed the carrying values, Columbia Property Trust adjusts the carrying value of the real estate assets and related intangible assets and liabilities to the estimated fair values, pursuant to the property, plant, and equipment accounting standard for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets, and recognizes an impairment loss. At such time that a property is required to be classified as held for sale, its carrying amount is adjusted to the lower of its depreciated book value or its estimated fair value, less costs to sell, and depreciation is no longer recognized.
Estimated fair values are calculated based on the following hierarchy of information: (i) recently quoted market prices, (ii) market prices for comparable properties, or (iii) the present value of future cash flows, including estimated residual value. Projections of expected future operating cash flows require that Columbia Property Trust estimate future market rental income amounts subsequent to the expiration of current lease agreements, property operating expenses, the number of months it takes to re-lease the property, and the number of years the property is held for investment, among other factors. Due to the inherent subjectivity of the assumptions used to project future cash flows, estimated fair values may differ from the values that would be realized in market transactions. Certain of Columbia Property Trust's assets may be carried at an amount that exceeds that which could be realized in a current disposition transaction.
In the second quarter of 2018, Columbia Property Trust recognized an impairment loss of $30.8 million in connection with changing the holding period expectations for 222 East 41st Street in New York. Columbia Property Trust widely marketed this property for sale during the second quarter and, as a result, entered into an agreement to sell this property on May 25, 2018 and closed on the sale on May 29, 2018. Upon entering into the sale agreement, Columbia Property Trust reduced 222 East 41st Street’s carrying

Page 11


value to reflect its fair value, estimated based on the net contract price of $284.6 million (Level 1), by recording an impairment loss of $30.8 million in the second quarter of 2018.
Intangible Assets and Liabilities Arising From In-Place Leases Where Columbia Property Trust Is the Lessor
Upon the acquisition of real properties, Columbia Property Trust allocates the purchase price of the properties to tangible assets, consisting of land, building, site improvements, and identified intangible assets and liabilities, including the value of in-place leases, based in each case on Columbia Property Trust's estimate of their fair values in accordance with ASC 820 (see Fair Value Measurements section above for additional detail). As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, Columbia Property Trust had the following intangible assets and liabilities, arising from in-place leases, excluding amounts held for sale, if applicable (in thousands):

Intangible Assets and Liabilities Arising From In-Place Leases Where Columbia Property Trust Is the Lessee
Columbia Property Trust is the lessee on certain in-place ground leases. Intangible above-market and below-market in-place lease values are recorded as intangible lease liabilities and assets, respectively, and are amortized as an adjustment to property operating cost over the remaining term of the respective leases. Columbia Property Trust had gross below-market lease assets of approximately

Page 12


$31.7 million and $140.9 million as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively, and recognized amortization of these assets of approximately $0.5 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and approximately $1.1 million and $1.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Interest Rate Swap Agreements
Columbia Property Trust enters into interest rate swap contracts to mitigate its interest rate risk on the related financial instruments. Columbia Property Trust does not enter into derivative or interest rate swap transactions for speculative purposes; however, certain of its derivatives may not qualify for hedge accounting treatment. Columbia Property Trust records the fair value of its interest rate swaps on its consolidated balance sheet either as prepaid expenses and other assets or as accounts payable, accrued expenses, and accrued capital expenditures. Changes in the fair value of interest rate swaps that are designated as cash flow hedges are recorded as other comprehensive income. All changes in the fair value of interest rate swaps that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment are recorded as gain or loss on interest rate swaps. Amounts received or paid under interest rate swap agreements are recorded as interest expense for contracts that qualify for hedge accounting treatment and as gain or loss on interest rate swaps for contracts that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment. The following tables provide additional information related to Columbia Property Trust's interest rate swaps (in thousands):

Columbia Property Trust applied the provisions of ASC 820 in recording its interest rate swaps at fair value. The fair values of the interest rate swaps, classified under Level 2, were determined using a third-party proprietary model that is based on prevailing market data for contracts with matching durations, current and anticipated London Interbank Offered Rate ("LIBOR") information, and reasonable estimates about relevant future market conditions. Columbia Property Trust has determined that the fair value, as determined by the third party, is reasonable.

Income Taxes
Columbia Property Trust has elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") and has operated as such beginning with its taxable year ended December 31, 2003. To qualify as a REIT, Columbia Property Trust must meet certain organizational and operational requirements, including a requirement to distribute at least 90% of its REIT taxable income, as defined by the Code, to its stockholders. As a REIT, Columbia Property Trust generally is not subject to income

Page 13


tax on income it distributes to stockholders. Columbia Property Trust's stockholder distributions typically exceed its taxable income due to the inclusion of noncash expenses, such as depreciation, in taxable income. As a result, Columbia Property Trust typically does not incur federal income taxes other than as described in the following paragraph. Columbia Property Trust is, however, subject to certain state and local taxes related to the operations of properties in certain locations, which have been provided for in the accompanying consolidated financial statements.
Columbia Property Trust TRS, LLC, Columbia KCP TRS, LLC, and Columbia Energy TRS, LLC (collectively, the "TRS Entities") are wholly owned subsidiaries of Columbia Property Trust and are organized as Delaware limited liability companies. The TRS Entities, among other things, provide tenant services that Columbia Property Trust, as a REIT, cannot otherwise provide. Columbia Property Trust has elected to treat the TRS Entities as taxable REIT subsidiaries. Columbia Property Trust may perform certain additional, noncustomary services for tenants of its buildings through the TRS Entities; however, any earnings related to such services are subject to federal and state income taxes. In addition, for Columbia Property Trust to continue to qualify as a REIT, Columbia Property Trust must limit its investments in taxable REIT subsidiaries to 20% of the value of the total assets. The TRS Entities' deferred tax assets and liabilities represent temporary differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of assets and liabilities based on the enacted rates expected to be in effect when the temporary differences reverse. If applicable, Columbia Property Trust records interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions as general and administrative expense in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
Reclassification
Certain prior period amounts may be reclassified to conform to the current-period financial statement presentation. Within revenues on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations, management fees earned from unconsolidated joint ventures have been reclassified from other property income to a dedicated line item, asset and property management fee income, for all periods presented.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2017, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update 2017-05, Clarifying the Scope of Asset Derecognition Guidance and Accounting for Partial Sales of Non-Financial Assets ("ASU 2017-05"), which applies to the partial sale of non-financial assets, including real estate assets, to unconsolidated joint ventures. ASU 2017-05 requires Columbia Property Trust to measure its residual joint venture interest in properties transferred to unconsolidated joint ventures at fair value as of the transaction date by recognizing a gain or loss on 100% of the asset transferred (i.e., to fully step-up the basis of the residual investment in the joint venture). Columbia Property Trust adopted the new rule effective January 1, 2018 on a modified retrospective basis by recording a cumulative-effect adjustment to equity equal to the total gain on residual joint venture interests as of the transaction dates for the partial sales of Market Square, 333 Market Street, and University Circle, adjusted to reflect the impact of depreciating the additional step-ups through January 1, 2018. The adoption of this standard resulted in an increase to investments in unconsolidated joint ventures and equity of $357.8 million.
In February 2016, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2016-02, Leases ("ASU 2016-02"), which amends the existing standards for lease accounting by requiring lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheets and by making targeted changes to lessor accounting and reporting. The new standard will require lessees to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than 12 months, and classify such leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase of the leased asset by the lessee, or not. This classification will determine whether the lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method (finance leases) or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease (operating leases). Leases with a term of 12 months or less will be accounted for using an approach that is similar to existing guidance for operating leases today. The new standard requires lessors to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to existing guidance as applies to sales-type leases, direct financing leases, and operating leases. The new standard also requires lessors to capitalize and amortize only incremental direct leasing costs. Columbia Property Trust anticipates adopting ASU 2016-02 as of January 1, 2019 (the effective date for large accelerated filers), using a modified retrospective implementation approach, and is in the process of evaluating the financial impact of this accounting change.
In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASU 2014-09"), which establishes a comprehensive model to account for revenues arising from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 applies to all contracts with customers, except those that are within the scope of other topics in the FASB's Accounting Standards Codification, such as real estate leases. ASU 2014-09 requires companies to perform a five-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. For Columbia Property Trust, the new standard applies primarily to fees earned from managing properties owned by its unconsolidated joint ventures and parking agreements with tenants. Given the structure of these agreements, the adoption of ASU 2014-09 has not materially impacted the timing or amount of Columbia Property Trust's revenues; however, Columbia Property Trust has included more extensive disclosures about its revenue streams and contracts with customers,

Page 14


which are presented in Note 11, Revenues. ASU 2014-09 was effective for Columbia Property Trust on January 1, 2018. Columbia Property Trust has applied the modified retrospective approach of adoption, which resulted in the recognition of a cumulative effect adjustment to equity of $0.3 million, with no retrospective adjustments to prior periods.

On May 29, 2018, Columbia Property Trust closed on the sale of 222 East 41st Street in New York, for $332.5 million, exclusive of transaction costs. Columbia Property Trust recognized an impairment loss of $30.8 million related to this property in the second quarter of 2018, as further described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies.
The proceeds from this transaction were used to fully repay the $180 million remaining balance on the $300 Million Bridge Loan, as described in Note 5, Line of Credit and Notes Payable.
(3) 
On April 13, 2018, Columbia Property Trust transferred 263 Shuman Boulevard to the lender in extinguishment of the loan principal of $49.0 million, accrued interest expense, and accrued property operating costs, which resulted in a gain on extinguishment of debt of $24.0 million in the second quarter of 2018.
(4) 
Sales price is for the partial interests in the unconsolidated joint ventures that were sold. As previously agreed, Columbia Property Trust sold an additional 22.5% interest in the University Circle property and 333 Market Street building to its joint venture partner, Allianz, for $235.3 million, which resulted in a $0.8 million gain on sale of unconsolidated joint venture interests (the "February 2018 Allianz Transaction"). The gain on sale is calculated as the net sales price over the adjusted carrying value of the joint venture interest sold. In connection with implementing ASU 2017-05, effective January 1, 2018, the joint venture carrying value was increased to its estimated fair value as of the joint venture formation date, July 6, 2017, less depreciation through January 1, 2018.
The proceeds from this transaction were used to reduce the balance on the $300 Million Bridge Loan and the Revolving Credit Facility, as described in Note 5, Line of Credit and Notes Payable.
(5) 
Sales price is for the partial interests in the properties that were sold. Columbia Property Trust contributed the 333 Market Street building and the University Circle property to unconsolidated joint ventures, and simultaneously sold a 22.5% interest in those joint ventures to Allianz, an unrelated third party, for $234.0 million, which resulted in a $102.4 million gain on sale of real estate assets (collectively, the "San Francisco Joint Ventures"). The gain on sale is calculated as the net sales price over the depreciated net book value of the assets sold.
(6) 
Key Center Tower & Marriott were sold in one transaction for $254.5 million of gross proceeds and a $13.0 million, 10-year accruing note receivable from the principal of the buyer. As a result, Columbia Property Trust has applied the installment method to account for this transaction, and deferred $13.0 million of the total $22.5 million gain on sale. The Key Center Tower and Key Center Marriott generated a net loss of $1.9 million for the first 31 days of 2017, excluding the gain on sale.
(7) 
5 Houston Center, Energy Center I, and 515 Post Oak were sold in one transaction. These properties generated a net loss of $14,900 for the first six days of 2017, excluding the gain on sale.

Includes basis differences. Columbia Property Trust adopted ASU 2017-05 effective January 1, 2018, which requires Columbia Property Trust to measure its residual joint venture interest in the properties transferred to unconsolidated joint ventures at fair value as of the transaction date (i.e., to fully step-up the basis of the residual investment in the joint venture). The new rule was adopted on a modified retrospective basis by recording a cumulative-effect adjustment to equity equal to the original gain or loss as of the respective transaction dates, adjusted to reflect the impact of depreciating the additional step-ups through January 1, 2018. The adoption of this standard resulted in an increase to investments in unconsolidated joint ventures and equity by $357.8 million on January 1, 2018, for the previous partial sales of interest in the Market Square, 333 Market Street, and University Circle properties.
(2) 
On February 1, 2018, Allianz acquired from Columbia Property Trust an additional 22.5% interest in each of the University Circle Joint Venture and the 333 Market Street Joint Venture, thereby reducing Columbia Property Trust's equity interest in each joint venture to 55.0%. See the Dispositions section of Note 3, Real Estate Transactions, for more information.
Columbia Property Trust has determined that none of the joint ventures qualify as variable interest entities. However, Columbia Property Trust and its partners have substantive participation rights in the joint ventures, including management selection and termination, and the approval of operating and capital decisions. As such, Columbia Property Trust uses the equity method of accounting to record its investment in these joint ventures. Under the equity method, the investment in the joint venture is recorded at cost and adjusted for cash contributions and distributions, and allocations of income or loss.
Columbia Property Trust evaluates the recoverability of its investments in unconsolidated joint ventures in accordance with accounting standards for equity investments by first reviewing the investment for any indicators of impairment. If indicators are present, Columbia Property Trust estimates the fair value of the investment. If the carrying value of the investment is greater than the estimated fair value, management makes an assessment of whether the impairment is "temporary" or "other-than-temporary." In making this assessment, management considers the following: (1) the length of time and the extent to which fair value has been less than cost and (2) Columbia Property Trust's intent and ability to retain its interest long enough for a recovery in market value. Based on the assessment as described above, Columbia Property Trust has determined that none of its investments in joint ventures are other than temporarily impaired as of June 30, 2018.
Mortgage Debt and Related Guaranty
The Market Square joint venture is the only joint venture with mortgage debt. As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the outstanding balance on the interest-only Market Square mortgage note is $325.0 million, bearing interest at 5.07%. The Market Square mortgage note matures on July 1, 2023. Columbia Property Trust guarantees a portion of the Market Square mortgage note, the amount of which has been reduced to $9.4 million as of June 30, 2018 from $11.2 million as of December 31, 2017, as a result of leasing at Market Square. The amount of the guaranty will continue to be reduced as space is leased.

Excludes basis differences. There is an aggregate net basis difference of $283.4 million and $32.0 million as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, respectively, between the historical costs recorded at the joint venture level, and Columbia Property Trust's investment in the joint ventures. The differences result from the basis step-up in accordance with ASU 2017-05, as described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, and the differences in the timing of each partner's interest acquisition and formation costs incurred by Columbia Property Trust. The basis differences are being amortized to income (loss) from unconsolidated joint ventures over the lives of the underlying assets or liabilities.

Fair Value of Debt
The estimated fair value of Columbia Property Trust's line of credit and notes payable as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, was approximately $550.3 million and $975.3 million, respectively. The related carrying value of the line of credit and notes payable as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, was $549.5 million and $974.2 million, respectively. Columbia Property Trust estimated the fair value of the $300 Million Term Loan (the "$300 Million Term Loan"), the $300 Million Bridge Loan (the $300 Million Bridge Loan"), and the Revolving Credit Facility (the "Revolving Credit Facility") by obtaining estimates for similar facilities from multiple market participants as of the respective reporting dates. Therefore, the fair values determined are considered to be based on observable market data for similar instruments (Level 2). The fair values of all other debt instruments were estimated based on discounted cash flow analyses using the current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowing arrangements as of the respective reporting dates. The discounted cash flow method of assessing fair value results in a general approximation of value, and such value may never actually be realized.
Interest Paid and Capitalized and Debt Covenants
During the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust made interest payments totaling approximately $12.0 million and $11.2 million, respectively, of which approximately $1.9 million and $0.3 million, respectively, were capitalized.

Page 20

Table of Contents


As of June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust believes it is in compliance with the restrictive financial covenants on its term loans, the Revolving Credit Facility, and notes payable obligations.
Debt Repayments & Extinguishment
On May 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust repaid the remaining $180.0 million outstanding balance on the $300 Million Bridge Loan, using a portion of the proceeds from the sale of 222 East 41st Street, as described in Note 3, Real Estate Transactions. As a result, Columbia Property Trust recognized a loss on extinguishment of debt of $0.3 million related to unamortized deferred financing costs.
On April 13, 2018, Columbia Property Trust transferred 263 Shuman Boulevard to the lender in extinguishment of the $49.0 million loan principal, accrued interest expense, and accrued property operating expenses, which resulted in a gain on extinguishment of debt of $24.0 million in the second quarter of 2018. In 2018, Columbia Property Trust accrued related interest expense of $1.5 million at the default rate of 10.55% and property operating expenses of $0.6 million, primarily related to property taxes and repairs and maintenance.
On February 2, 2018, Columbia Property Trust repaid $120.0 million of the outstanding balance on the $300 Million Bridge Loan, using a portion of the proceeds from the February 2018 Allianz Transaction, as described in Note 3, Real Estate Transactions.
6.    Bonds Payable
Columbia Property Trust has two series of bonds outstanding as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017: $350.0 million of 10-year, unsecured 3.650% senior notes issued at 99.626% of their face value (the "2026 Bonds Payable"); and $350.0 million of 10-year, unsecured 4.150% senior notes issued at 99.859% of their face value (the "2025 Bonds Payable"). Both series of bonds require semi-annual interest payments. The principal amount of the 2026 Bonds Payable is due and payable on August 15, 2026, and the principal amount of the 2025 Bonds Payable is due and payable on April 1, 2025.
Interest payments of $13.7 million and $13.8 million were made on the bonds payable during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Columbia Property Trust is subject to substantially similar covenants under the 2026 Bonds Payable and the 2025 Bonds Payable. As of June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust believes it was in compliance with the restrictive financial covenants on the 2026 Bonds Payable and the 2025 Bonds Payable.
As of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017, the estimated fair value of the bonds payable was approximately $667.6 million and $702.8 million, respectively. The related carrying value of the bonds payable, net of discounts, as of June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 was $698.6 million and $698.5 million, respectively. The fair value of the bonds payable was estimated based on discounted cash flow analyses using the current incremental borrowing rates for similar types of borrowings as the bonds as of the respective reporting dates (Level 2). The discounted cash flow method of assessing fair value results in a general approximation of value, which may differ from the price that could be achieved in a market transaction.
7.
Commitments and Contingencies
Commitments Under Existing Lease Agreements
Certain lease agreements include provisions that, at the option of the tenant, may obligate Columbia Property Trust to expend capital to expand an existing property or provide other expenditures for the benefit of the tenant. As of June 30, 2018, no tenants have exercised such options that have not been materially satisfied or recorded as a liability on the accompanying consolidated balance sheet.
Guaranty of Debt of Unconsolidated Joint Venture
Upon entering into the Market Square Joint Venture in October 2015, Columbia Property Trust entered into a guaranty of a $25.0 million portion of the Market Square mortgage note, the amount of which is reduced as space is leased. As a result of leasing, the guaranty has been reduced to $9.4 million as of June 30, 2018. Columbia Property Trust believes that the likelihood of making a payment under this guaranty is remote; therefore, no liability has been recorded related to this guaranty as of June 30, 2018.
Litigation
Columbia Property Trust is subject to various legal proceedings, claims, and administrative proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business, some of which are expected to be covered by liability insurance. Management makes assumptions and estimates concerning the likelihood and amount of any reasonably possible loss relating to these matters using the latest information available. Columbia Property Trust records a liability for litigation if an unfavorable outcome is probable and the amount of loss or range

Page 21

Table of Contents


of loss can be reasonably estimated. If an unfavorable outcome is probable and a reasonable estimate of the loss is a range, Columbia Property Trust accrues the best estimate within the range. If no amount within the range is a better estimate than any other amount, Columbia Property Trust accrues the minimum amount within the range. If an unfavorable outcome is probable but the amount of the loss cannot be reasonably estimated, Columbia Property Trust discloses the nature of the litigation and indicates that an estimate of the loss or range of loss cannot be made. If an unfavorable outcome is reasonably possible and the estimated loss is material, Columbia Property Trust discloses the nature and estimate of the possible loss of the litigation. Columbia Property Trust does not disclose information with respect to litigation where the possibility of an unfavorable outcome is considered to be remote. Based on current expectations, such matters, both individually and in the aggregate, are not expected to have a material adverse effect on the liquidity, results of operations, business, or financial condition of Columbia Property Trust. Columbia Property Trust is not currently involved in any legal proceedings of which management would consider the outcome to be reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the results of operations, liquidity, or financial condition of Columbia Property Trust.
8.
Stockholders' Equity
Common Stock Repurchase Program
Columbia Property Trust's board of directors authorized a stock repurchase program to purchase up to an aggregate of $200.0 million of its common stock, par value $0.01 per share, from September 4, 2017 through September 4, 2019 (the "2017 Stock Repurchase Program"). During the six months ended June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust repurchased 2.0 million shares at an average price of $21.35 per share, for aggregate purchases of $41.8 million. As of June 30, 2018, $153.0 million remains available for repurchases under the 2017 Stock Repurchase Program. Common stock repurchases are charged against equity as incurred, and the repurchased shares are retired. Columbia Property Trust will continue to evaluate the purchase of shares, primarily through open market transactions, which are subject to market conditions and other factors.
Long-Term Incentive Compensation
Columbia Property Trust maintains a shareholder-approved, long-term incentive plan (the "LTI Plan") that provides for grants of up to 4.8 million shares of stock to be made to certain employees and independent directors of Columbia Property Trust.
Employee Awards
Under the LTI Plan, Columbia Property Trust grants time-based stock awards and performance-based restricted stock unit awards to its employees.
On January 1, 2018, Columbia Property Trust granted 128,486 shares of time-based stock awards to employees, which will vest ratably on each anniversary of the grant over the next four years. On January 1, 2018, Columbia Property Trust granted 176,702 performance-based restricted stock unit awards, of which 75% will vest at the conclusion of a three-year performance period, and the remaining 25% will vest one year later (the "Performance-Based RSUs"). Consistent with the 2017 plan, the payout of the 2018 Performance-Based RSUs will be determined based on Columbia Property Trust’s total shareholder return relative to the FTSE NAREIT Equity Office Index. Upon reaching a predefined performance threshold, the payout of Performance-Based RSUs will range from 50% to 150%. A rollforward of unvested employee stock awards and Performance-Based RSUs granted under the LTI Plan for the six months ended June 30, 2018 follows:

11.     Revenues
Columbia Property Trust derives most of its revenues, rental income, and tenant reimbursements from leases. All leases on real estate assets held by Columbia Property Trust are classified as operating leases, and the related base rental income is generally recognized on a straight-line basis over the terms of the respective leases. Tenant reimbursements are recognized as revenue in the period that the related operating costs are incurred and are billed to tenants pursuant to the terms of the underlying leases. Rental income and tenant reimbursements collected in advance are recorded as deferred income in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Lease termination fees are recorded as other income and recognized on a straight-line basis from when Columbia Property Trust receives notification of termination through the date the tenant loses the right to lease the space and Columbia Property Trust has satisfied all obligations under the related lease or lease termination agreement. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust earned lease termination revenues of $0.8 million; and for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust earned lease termination revenues of $1.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively.
On January 1, 2018, Columbia Property Trust adopted ASU 2014-09 using the modified retrospective approach. ASU 2014-09 applies to all open contracts with customers, except those that are within the scope of other topics in the FASB's Accounting Standards Codification, such as real estate leases. ASU 2014-09 requires companies to perform a five-step analysis of transactions to determine when and how revenue is recognized. For Columbia Property Trust, the new standard applies primarily to the following revenues:
Asset and Property Management Fee Income
Under asset and property management agreements in place with certain of its unconsolidated joint ventures, Columbia Property Trust earns revenue for performing asset and property management functions for properties owned through its joint ventures, as further described in Note 4, Unconsolidated Joint Ventures. For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust earned revenues of $1.8 million and $0.5 million, respectively, under these agreements; and for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust earned revenues of $3.6 million and $1.0 million, respectively, under these agreements. Asset and property management services are ongoing and routine, and are provided on a recurring basis. Therefore, under ASU 2014-09, such fees are recognized ratably over the service period, usually a period of three months, which is consistent with the

accounting method used prior to January 1, 2018. Columbia Property Trust receives payments quarterly for asset management fees and monthly for property management fees.
Leasing Override Fees
Under the asset management agreements for certain properties owned through unconsolidated joint ventures, Columbia Property Trust is eligible to earn leasing override fees equal to a percentage of the total rental payments to be made by the tenant over the term of the lease. ASU 2014-09 requires such fees to be recognized when Columbia Property Trust's obligation to perform is complete, typically upon execution of the lease. Prior to January 1, 2018, such fees were not recognized until billable to the applicable joint venture, typically upon commencement of the lease. Upon implementing ASU 2014-09 effective January 1, 2018, Columbia Property Trust accelerated the recognition of lease override fees related to a lease that had been executed but not yet commenced, by recording $0.3 million of lease override fees receivable as prepaid expenses and other assets and a cumulative-effect adjustment to increase equity by the same amount. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust earned leasing override fees of $38,000, which are included in asset and property management fee income on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, Columbia Property Trust did not earn any leasing override fees.
Salary and Other Reimbursement Revenue
Under the property management agreements for certain properties owned through unconsolidated joint ventures, Columbia Property Trust receives reimbursements for salaries and property operating costs for ongoing and routine services that are provided by Columbia Property Trust employees on a recurring basis. Under ASU 2014-09, such revenues are recognized ratably over the service period, usually a period of one month, three months, or one year, which is consistent with the accounting method used prior to January 1, 2018. For the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust earned salary and other reimbursement revenue of $1.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively; and for the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, Columbia Property Trust earned salary and other reimbursement revenue of $2.2 million and $0.4 million, respectively. These amounts are included in other property income on the accompanying consolidated statements of income.
Miscellaneous Revenue
Columbia Property Trust also receives revenues for services provided to its tenants through the TRS Entities, including fitness centers, shuttles, and cafeterias, which are included in other property income on the accompanying consolidated statements of income. Such services are ongoing and routine, and are provided on a recurring basis. Under ASU 2014-09, these revenues are recognized ratably over the service period, usually a period of one month or one quarter, which is consistent with the accounting method used prior to January 1, 2018.
12.    Segment Information
Columbia Property Trust establishes operating segments at the property level and aggregates individual properties into reportable segments for high-barrier-to-entry markets and for geographic locations in which Columbia Property Trust has significant investments. Columbia Property Trust considers geographic location when evaluating its portfolio composition and in assessing the ongoing operations and performance of its properties. As of June 30, 2018, Columbia Property Trust had the following reportable segments:  New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Boston, Los Angeles, and all other office markets. The all other office markets reportable segment consists of properties in similar low-barrier-to-entry geographic locations in which Columbia Property Trust does not have a substantial presence and does not plan to make further investments. During the periods presented, there have been no material intersegment transactions.
Net operating income ("NOI") is a non-GAAP financial measure. NOI is the primary performance measure reviewed by management to assess operating performance of properties and is calculated by deducting operating expenses from operating revenues. Operating revenues include rental income, tenant reimbursements, hotel income, and other property income; and operating expenses include property operating costs. The NOI performance metric consists only of revenues and expenses directly related to real estate rental operations. NOI reflects property acquisitions and dispositions, occupancy levels, rental rate increases or decreases, and the recoverability of operating expenses. NOI, as Columbia Property Trust calculates it, may not be directly comparable to similarly titled, but differently calculated, measures for other REITs.
Asset information and capital expenditures by segment are not reported because Columbia Property Trust does not use these measures to assess performance. Depreciation and amortization expense, along with other expense and income items, are not allocated among segments.
