Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On December 7, 2012, Wells Mid-Horizon Value-Added Fund I, LLC (the “Registrant”) and Country Music Television, Inc. (“CMT”), an unrelated third party, entered into an eighth amendment to the lease agreement (the "Amendment") at the Commerce Street Building, a four-story office building containing approximately 115,000 rentable square feet and two floors of the parking deck located in Nashville, Tennessee. CMT currently leases approximately 75% of the Commerce Street Building. The Amendment extends CMT's lease term from May 31, 2013 to May 31, 2020. The Registrant owns 100% of the Commerce Street Building.
Effective June 1, 2013, CMT's annual base rent will decrease from approximately $18.70 per square foot to approximately $17.25 per square foot. CMT's annual base rent will then increase by approximately 2.25% annually beginning in the thirteenth month of the lease. In addition to annual base rent, effective June 1, 2014 upon the expiration of a 12-month reimbursement abatement period, CMT is also required to reimburse the Registrant for its pro rata share of all operating expenses and real estate taxes for the Commerce Street Building that exceed base year expenses. In connection with the Amendment, CMT will receive a credit in the amount of approximately $296,800 to be paid in a lump sum payment by December 31, 2012 or be applied against rental payments due over the remaining lease term of the current in-place lease. In addition, CMT is entitled to a landlord-funded tenant allowance of approximately $602,200. The landlord is also required to complete certain building improvements, as defined in the Amendment. The Amendment allows CMT to reduce its square footage leased by up to approximately 28,700 square feet, the second floor of the building, effective May 31, 2018, by providing at least 12 months written notice and funding a payment to the landlord up to approximately $150,000, dependent upon the total reduction in square footage leased. CMT has the right to extend the lease term for two additional five-year periods at 95% of 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.
