KBS REIT III’s charter permits it to pay distributions from any source, including offering proceeds or borrowings (which may constitute a return of capital), and does not limit the amount of funds it may use from any source to pay such distributions. If KBS REIT III pays distributions from sources other than cash flows from operating activities, it will have less funds available to make real estate investments and the overall return to its stockholders may be reduced.
