Houston, Texas, March 12, 2013 - Whitestone REIT (NYSE: WSR - “Whitestone” or the “Company”), a fully integrated real estate company that owns, operates and re-develops Community Centered PropertiesTM, which are visibly located in established or developing culturally diverse neighborhoods, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.
 
James C. Mastandrea, Whitestone's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, “For the third consecutive year, the pace of growth for Whitestone accelerated as we acquired five additional Community Centered Property properties for an aggregate purchase price of $107.6 million in 2012. Furthermore, we again delivered on our internal growth initiatives of adding tenants to increase occupancy rates while executing on select redevelopments to increase the value our assets. We continue to benefit from our commitment to our small space business model, which is helping drive improvement in our leasing efforts and margins. As we look to 2013 with a strengthened balance sheet and additional financial flexibility, we expect to add additional accretive acquisitions from our deep and growing pipeline of off-market opportunities in high growth markets.”
