Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund Announces Strong Leasing Activity

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - May 3, 2013) - Dividend Capital Diversified Property Fund Inc. ("DPF" or "the Company"), a diversified public REIT, announced today leasing activity metrics. For the quarter ending March 31, 2013, excluding the Company's interest in Comerica Tower in Dallas, TX, the Company's portfolio is approximately 96.1% leased compared to 92.0% as of December 31, 2012.

"We are very pleased with our portfolio operating metrics. Leasing activity is strong across our office, retail and industrial properties," said Austin Lehr, Chief Operating Officer of DPF. "This significant positive increase in occupancy is a result of approximately 710,000 square feet of net absorption in the portfolio, with leases to a variety of leading tenants."

"Obtaining this level of occupancy is a team effort," said Jeff Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of DPF. "Our asset managers select and manage high quality leasing agents and property managers. These results reflect our strategy of acquiring buildings that exhibit long term demand in supply constrained markets."
