Item 2.03. Creation of a Direct Financial Obligation or an Obligation under an

           Off- Balance Sheet Arrangement of a Registrant


On December 11, 2012, Griffin Capital Net Lease REIT, Inc. (the "Registrant"), through nine property-owning special purpose entities (the "Property SPEs") wholly-owned by the Registrant's operating partnership (the "Operating Partnership"), entered into that certain Bridge Credit Agreement in which KeyBank National Association ("KeyBank") serves as the initial lender (the "Bridge Credit Agreement") with total commitments of $15.0 million (the "Bridge Loan"). An additional lender, Fifth Third Bank, was added pursuant to the terms of the Bridge Credit Agreement on December 19, 2012, bringing the total commitments under the Bridge Loan to $25.0 million. The Property SPEs and any other entities that become a Borrower (as defined therein) pursuant to the terms of the Bridge Credit Agreement may request borrowings up to the total loan amount committed, subject to certain limitations as discussed in the Bridge Credit Agreement, attached to this report as Exhibit 10.1.

The Bridge Credit Agreement has a term of eleven months, maturing on November 18, 2013. Payments of interest are due monthly. The Bridge Loan requires weekly payments of 100% of the net equity proceeds of the Registrant's ongoing public offering (after deduction of certain fees and any portion of such proceeds required to pay distributions to the Registrant's stockholders, if any). The Bridge Loan may be prepaid at any time, without penalty, subject to the terms of the Bridge Credit Agreement.

Pursuant to the terms of the Bridge Credit Agreement, the Borrower may elect the applicable interest rate for each borrowing from either: (i) the LIBO Rate multiplied by the Statutory Reserve Rate (the "Adjusted LIBO Rate") or (ii) the greater of the Prime Rate, the Federal Funds Effective Rate plus 1/2%, and the then-applicable Adjusted LIBO Rate plus 1% (the "Alternate Base Rate"). The Borrower may also elect to change the applicable interest rate, subject to the terms of the Bridge Credit Agreement. In connection with the acquisition of the Health Net property, as described below in Item 8.01, the Health Net SPE (as defined below) borrowed $2.0 million under the Bridge Credit Agreement and elected to have the Adjusted LIBO Rate apply to such amount, which amounted to an initial interest rate of approximately 4.7%. The Health Net SPE may change this election from time to time, as provided by the Bridge Credit Agreement.

In connection with the Bridge Credit Agreement, the Borrower paid customary lender fees, including a commitment fee of 0.50% or $75,000, as well as an arrangement fee of 1.2% of the full commitment, or $300,000. The Borrower will be required to pay additional lender fees on any unused commitments on a quarterly basis.

The Bridge Loan is secured by a pledge of the net equity proceeds of the Registrant's ongoing public offering and a pledge by the Registrant of 100% of the ownership interests in the Property SPEs. In addition, the obligations of the Registrant under the Bridge Loan are guaranteed by the Registrant, Griffin Capital Corporation, the Registrant's sponsor, and Kevin A. Shields, the Registrant's Chief Executive Officer and Chairman.

In addition to customary representations, warranties, covenants and indemnities, the Bridge Credit Agreement requires the following:



     •   the Registrant must generate, during the term of the Bridge Loan, gross
         equity proceeds from its ongoing public offering of at least $5 million
         per month; and

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     •   with limited exceptions, the Registrant and the Operating Partnership are
         prohibited from obtaining any additional recourse debt without obtaining
         the prior written consent of the lender or lenders under the Bridge Loan.

Upon the occurrence of an Event of Default (as defined therein), the lender may accelerate the entire balance then outstanding under the loan and impose certain late fees and/or default penalties. The Registrant will also be prohibited from making distributions to its stockholders and prohibited from paying any management, property, asset or similar fees. Further, in the event of a default, any acquisition fees due to the Registrant's advisor, sponsor or any of their affiliates are subordinate to the Bridge Loan and may not be paid until the Bridge Loan has been terminated. An event of default under the revolving credit facility by and between the Operating Partnership and a syndicate of lenders whose lead administrative agent is KeyBank shall also constitute an Event of Default under the Bridge Credit Agreement.

This description of the Bridge Loan is qualified in its entirety by the Bridge Credit Agreement and the Guaranty of the Registrant, which are attached as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 hereto.

On December 18, 2012, the Registrant closed on the purchase of a three-story office facility consisting of approximately 146,000 rentable square feet located in Rancho Cordova, California (the "Health Net property"), from an unaffiliated third party. The Health Net property is 97% leased to Health Net of California, Inc. ("Health Net"), pursuant to a full-service gross lease which has a remaining term of 9.5 years, expiring in June 2022, with a one-time termination right exercisable any time during the calendar year 2018, subject to a $5 million penalty.

The implied initial capitalization rate for the Health Net property is approximately 9.08%. The estimated going-in capitalization rate is determined by dividing the projected net operating income for the first fiscal year the Registrant owns the property by the acquisition price (exclusive of closing and

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

offering costs). The net operating income is calculated by totaling the sum of all the revenues from the tenants including base rental revenue and expense reimbursement revenue then deducting the total of all the property expenses including utilities, insurance, real estate taxes, repairs and maintenance and all property operating expenses. The projected net operating income includes assumptions that may not be indicative of the actual future performance of a property, including the assumption that the tenants will perform its obligations under its lease agreements during the next 12 months.

The GC Net Lease REIT Property Management, LLC, an affiliate of the Registrant, will be responsible for managing the Health Net property and will be paid management fees in an amount of 3% of the gross monthly revenues collected from the Health Net property. The GC Net Lease REIT Property Management, LLC has hired an unaffiliated third party to manage the day-to-day operations and will pay such third party a portion of the management fees paid by the Registrant.
