Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
     On March 5, 2007, Crescent Real Estate Equities Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the “Partnership”), and certain of its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Sellers” and, collectively with the Partnership, “Crescent”), and Walton TCC Hotel Investors V, L.L.C., a Delaware limited liability company (the “Purchaser”), entered into a series of Purchase and Sale Agreements (collectively, the “Purchase Agreement”) pursuant to which, among other things, (a) the Sellers agreed to sell to the Purchaser all of the Sellers’ rights, title and interest in the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spaâ, the Sonoma Golf Club, the Ventana Inn & Spaâ, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa, the Omni Austin hotel, the Denver Marriott hotel and the Renaissance Houston hotel and (b) the Partnership agreed to guaranty certain obligations of the Sellers under the Purchase Agreement. The total gross purchase price under all the Purchase and Sale Agreements, which was determined through arm’s length negotiations between the parties, is approximately $550,000,000 and is to be paid at closing. Crescent’s share of the gross purchase price, determined after taking into account the interests of its partners in the sales and incentive payments due as a result of the sales, is approximately $510,000,000. The Purchase Agreement became effective on March 10, 2007 upon the approval of the Purchase Agreement by the Board of Trust Managers of Crescent Real Estate Equities Company (the “Company”), the sole shareholder of the general partner and majority limited partner of the Partnership.
     The Purchaser has paid an earnest money deposit of approximately $11,000,000. The Purchaser has the right to terminate the Purchase Agreement and receive a refund of the earnest money deposit until the expiration of a due diligence period on March 26, 2007. If the Purchaser has not terminated the Purchase Agreement by the expiration of the due diligence period, the earnest money deposit becomes nonrefundable.
     The closing of the transactions contemplated by the Purchase Agreement is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions. There are no assurances that the conditions will be met or that the transaction will be consummated. The parties to the Purchase Agreement presently anticipate that the closing will occur during the second quarter of 2007. Neither the Company, nor the Partnership, nor any of the Sellers or any of the affiliates of the foregoing, has a material relationship with Purchaser, other than pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.
