Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 14, 2012, The Wells Fund XI-Fund XII-REIT Joint Venture (the “Joint Venture”), a joint venture partnership between Wells Real Estate Fund XI, L.P., Wells Real Estate Fund XII, L.P. (the “Registrant”), and Piedmont Operating Partnership, LP, executed an agreement to lease 49% of an office building containing approximately 70,200 rentable square feet located in Leawood, Kansas (the "20/20 Building") to SelectQuote Insurance Services ("SelectQuote"), an unrelated party, for 69 months. The Registrant owns an equity interest of approximately 17.09% in the Joint Venture, which owns 100% of the 20/20 Building.
The commencement date of the aforementioned agreement is the earlier of the date on which (i) the tenant improvements are substantially complete or would have been complete without tenant delay days, or (ii) SelectQuote accepts possession and occupies the space. Based on an estimated commencement date of February 1, 2013, following a three-month base rental abatement period, annual base rent of $18.25 per square foot shall be payable through January 31, 2014. SelectQuote's annual base rent will increase by approximately 2% annually beginning on February 1, 2014. In addition to monthly base rent, SelectQuote is also required to reimburse the Joint Venture for its pro rata share of all operating costs and real estate taxes for the 20/20 Building that exceed base year expenses. In addition, SelectQuote is entitled to a landlord-funded tenant allowance of approximately $919,000. The Agreement allows SelectQuote to expand its square footage leased, subject to availability of space in the building, within first 45 months of the lease term, and gives SelectQuote the right of first refusal to lease additional space on the third floor of the building which is currently unoccupied. SelectQuote has the right to extend the lease term for an additional five-year period at the then fair market rental rate.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this Current Report on Form 8-K to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
