EXPLANATORY NOTE

Washington Real Estate Investment Trust (“WashREIT”) previously reported the acquisition of seven multifamily portfolio apartments, collectively referred to as the Assembly Portfolio, which was completed in two tranches.

Report of Independent Auditors
To the Shareholders and the Board of Trustees of
Washington Real Estate Investment Trust

We have audited the accompanying Statement of Revenues and Certain Expenses (the Statement) of the Assembly Portfolio (the Properties) for the year ended December 31, 2018, and the related notes to the Statement.

Management's Responsibility for the Statement

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of the Statement in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of the Statement that is free of material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditor's Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Statement based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the Statement is free of material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the Statement. The procedures selected depend on the auditor's judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the Statement, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity's preparation and fair presentation of the Statement in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity's internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the Statement.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the Statement referred to above presents fairly, in all material respects, the revenues and certain expenses described in Note 2 of the Properties for the year ended December 31, 2018, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Basis of Accounting

As described in Note 2 to the Statement, the Statement has been prepared for the purpose of complying with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for inclusion in the Form 8-K/A of Washington Real Estate Investment Trust, and is not intended to be a complete presentation of the Properties’ revenues and expenses. Our opinion is not modified with respect to this matter.

Revenue recognition

The Assembly Portfolio has operating leases with apartment residents with terms averaging 12 months. Rental income, net of any concessions, is recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Rental payments received in advance are deferred until earned.

Advertising costs

The Assembly Portfolio expenses advertising costs as incurred. Advertising expenses for the year ended December 31, 2018 and the quarter ended March 31, 2019 were $423,289 and $85,396, respectively.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from estimated amounts.

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The statements of revenues and certain expenses have been prepared for the purpose of complying with Rule 3-14 of Regulation S-X, promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, which requires certain information with respect to real estate operations acquired to be included with certain filings made by WashREIT with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, the statements of revenues and certain expenses are not representative of the actual operations of the Assembly Portfolio for the periods presented, nor indicative of future operations. However, WashREIT is not aware of any material factors relating to the Assembly Portfolio that would cause the reported financial information not to be necessarily indicative of future operating results.





In addition, the statements of revenues and certain expenses exclude items that may not be comparable to the proposed future operations of the Assembly Portfolio such as:

(a) Interest expense on existing mortgages and borrowings
(b) Depreciation of property and equipment
(c) Asset management fees and property management fees
(d) Amortization of initial leasing fees
(e) Certain corporate and administrative expenses


NOTE 3 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Commitments and contingencies include the usual obligations of real estate properties in the normal course of business. In management's opinion, these matters are not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Assembly Portfolio's future operating results.

NOTE 4 - SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

Management has evaluated the events and transactions that have occurred through July 11, 2019, the date on which the statements of revenue and certain expenses were available to be issued and noted no items requiring adjustment to the statements or additional disclosures.





WASHINGTON REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST
UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET AND
CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED STATEMENTS OF INCOME (LOSS)

The unaudited consolidated pro forma financial information should be read in conjunction with WashREIT's Form 8-Ks filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 1, 2019 and June 27, 2019, reporting the acquisition of the Assembly Portfolio and amended hereby; the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in WashREIT's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and WashREIT's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019; and the Statements of Revenues and Certain Expenses of the Assembly Portfolio included elsewhere in this Form 8-K/A. In management's opinion, all adjustments necessary to reflect these acquisitions and related transactions have been made.

The unaudited consolidated pro forma financial information is not necessarily indicative of what WashREIT's actual results of operations would have been had the transaction been consummated on the dates indicated, nor does it purport to represent WashREIT's results of operations or financial position for any future period. The pro forma results of operations for the periods ended December 31, 2018 and March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for these periods.

The Assembly Portfolio, which contains 2,113 units, consists of seven suburban Class B apartment communities in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County, Maryland. The seven assets in the portfolio are as follows:

Virginia Assets ($379,100,000 (aggregate contract price, exclusive of closing costs); purchased on April 30, 2019)
1.
205 Century Place, Alexandria
2.
13690 Legacy Circle, Herndon
3.
2511 Farmcrest Drive, Herndon
4.
10519 Lariat Lane, Manassas
5.
86 Heritage Way, NE, Leesburg

Maryland Assets ($82,070,000 (aggregate contract price, exclusive of closing costs); purchased on June 27, 2019)
1.
2 Observation Court, Germantown
2.
99 Watkins Mill Road, Gaithersburg

On April 30, 2019, WashREIT entered into a six month, $450.0 million unsecured term loan facility (“2019 Term Loan”), maturing on October 30, 2019 with an option to extend for an additional six month period. The 2019 Term Loan was used to fund the acquisition of the Assembly Portfolio.

The pro forma balance sheet as of March 31, 2019 presents consolidated financial information as if the acquisition of the Assembly Portfolio and the borrowings under the 2019 Term Loan had taken place on March 31, 2019. The pro forma condensed consolidated statements of income (loss) for the year ended December 31, 2018 and the quarter ended March 31, 2019 present the pro forma results of operations as if the acquisition had taken place as of January 1, 2018. The pro forma adjustments to record interest expense assume that the 2019 Term Loan was obtained on January 1, 2018 and was outstanding for the entire year ended December 31, 2018 and the entire quarter ended March 31, 2019. Explanations or details of the pro forma adjustments are in the notes to the financial statements.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED PRO FORMA CONSOLIDATED BALANCE SHEET

461,170

Credit from seller
(2,252
)
Capitalized acquisition costs
2,362

Total
$
461,280


WashREIT accounted for the acquisition as an asset acquisition. Accordingly, we capitalized the $2.4 million of costs directly associated with the acquisition. We measured the value of the acquired physical assets (land, building and improvements) and in-place leases (absorption costs) by allocating the total cost of the acquisition on a relative fair value basis.

WashREIT has recorded the total cost of the Assembly Portfolio as follows (in thousands):
Land
$
80,102

Buildings and improvements
367,427

Absorption costs

Total
$
461,280


The weighted average remaining life for the absorption costs is seven months.

The difference between cash paid ($458.2 million) and the total cost ($461.3 million) is comprised of the following:
Credit to seller for prepaid expenses

708

 
$
3,095


(2)     On April 30, 2019, WashREIT entered into the 2019 Term Loan. The 2019 Term Loan bears interest, at WashREIT's option, at a rate of either LIBOR plus a margin ranging from 0.75% to 1.65% or a base rate plus a margin ranging 0.0% to 0.65% (in each case depending upon WashREIT’s credit rating). The base rate is the highest of the administrative agent’s prime rate, the federal funds rate plus 0.50% and the daily one-month LIBOR rate plus 1.0%. The 2019 Term Loan currently has an interest rate based on the weekly LIBOR rate plus 100 basis points, based on WashREIT’s current unsecured debt rating. As of June 28, 2019, the all-in rate was 3.39%. The pro forma adjustments to record interest expense assume the 2019 Term Loan was obtained on January 1, 2018 and was outstanding for the entire year ended December 31, 2018 and the entire quarter ended March 31, 2019. The impact of a 1/8% increase in the interest rate on our pro forma financial statements would be higher interest expense for the quarter ended March 31, 2019 and year ended December 31, 2018 of approximately $0.1 million and $0.6 million, respectively.

The 2019 Term Loan was used to fund the acquisition of the Assembly Portfolio.
