Lexington Realty Trust Announces Revised Estimated Taxable Gain.

NEW YORK, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lexington Realty Trust ("Lexington") , a real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on single-tenant real estate investments, announces that it is today revising downward its previous estimated taxable gain of approximately $4.75 to $5.50 to approximately $1.60 to $3.29 per share. To date, the taxable gain in 2007 from its completed disposition activity is approximately $1.09 per share. The revised estimated range results from: (i) the deferral of the sale of all or a portion of the 53 assets under contract with its previously announced new co-investment program until the first quarter of 2008; and (ii) the deferral of other expected dispositions until the first quarter of 2008 which were expected to close in 2007.

Lexington anticipates announcing the special distribution related to taxable gain, if and when declared, by December 24, 2007.

The sale of any of the 53 assets by Lexington and its subsidiaries, the purchase by the co-investment program, and the funding by Lexington's co-investment partner remain subject to satisfaction of conditions precedent to closing, including the assumption of existing financing, obtaining certain consents and waivers, the continuing solvency of the tenants and certain other customary conditions. Similarly, the other expected dispositions are subject to satisfaction of conditions precedent to closing, including, in certain cases, the assumption of existing financing, obtaining certain consents and waivers, the continuing solvency of the tenants and other customary conditions.

Accordingly, Lexington cannot provide assurances that the sale of any of the 53 assets, the funding by its co-investment partner, or the other expected dispositions will be completed. Furthermore, the determination of any distribution is subject to approval by Lexington's Board of Trustees.
