[1] Yield on the assumption/issuance date, including the effects of any premiums, discounts or fair value adjustments on the notes.
[2] The mortgage bears a set interest rate through June 30, 2012, at which time the rate will be reset based on the Moody's Long-term Corporate Bond Yield Average, but never lower than 5.0% per annum. The interest rate will be reset annually thereafter for the duration of the note. Principal and interest are payable monthly until July 1, 2028, at which time all unpaid principal and interest are payable in full. During the first 90 days of 2013, the lender has the option to elect to accelerate the maturity date of the note to July 1, 2013. For the remainder of 2013, we have the right to prepay the note without any prepayment penalties.
[3] Interest only is payable monthly until the maturity date, which can be extended for one year upon which the interest rate is reset on June 1, 2016. At maturity on June 1, 2017, all unpaid principal and interest are payable in full.
[4] Interest only is payable monthly until the maturity date upon which all unpaid principal and interest are payable in full.
