    Revenues were up in the quarter and on a year-to-date basis versus similar
periods in 2008 on increased property rent revenue, partially offset by lower
property management revenue. Property Net Operating Income was up for both the
quarter and year-to-date on increased rental revenue. With the inclusion of
interest, depreciation and amortization, Overland incurred a Net Loss of
$190,004 for the quarter ending April 30, 2009 and $869,881 year-to-date,
versus a Net Loss of $1,478,900 in the same period of fiscal 2008. Total
assets declined slightly from $66,413,709 at July 31, 2008 to 66,192,342 at
the current quarter end, reflecting depreciation and amortization of the real
estate assets offset by cash flow generation and other working capital items.
Total assets included $3.92 million in cash and restricted cash (net of
operating lines), up $1.07 million from the start of the fiscal year.
    Overland's stable, long-term tenant roster is predominately leased to
governments or credit quality covenants, with an average lease expiration of
5.25 years. The Company's long term mortgage portfolio is equally as stable,
with only one mortgage of $1.9 million maturing in the next 3.25 years.
