Scopus may seek to reduce risk through a variety of risk management practices, including adjusting market and sector exposure, reviewing investment liquidity and performing regular portfolio monitoring and review. In addition, Scopus may employ leverage, to varying degrees, on behalf of the funds. ^^Scopus' investment approach combines value analysis with anticipation of improving fundamentals and growth opportunities that are typically overlooked or not fully understood and appreciated by the market, including prospects for accelerating revenue and earnings growth, cyclical improvements in the company’s industry or product cycle and opportunities for turnaround and restructuring. Scopus looks for specific catalysts that will lead the market toward what they perceive as the company’s true value and seek to identify compelling reasons for each investment to perform within the objective of superior returns. Scopus uses earnings models to further analyze investments and combines the model results with analysis of industry projections.^^Portfolios generally consists of long and short positions in common stocks of US companies and derivative instruments linked to US equity markets, such as options, warrants, convertible securities, forward contracts and swaps. Investments may also include preferred stocks, hybrid securities, fixed-income securities (corporate and governmental), debt securities, indices, REITs and other real estate related securities, and other instruments deemed appropriate for the client’s objectives, including hedging strategies.

RLJ Lodging Trust is a self-advised, publicly traded real estate investment trust focused on acquiring premium-branded, focused-service and compact full-service hotels. The Company's portfolio consists of 145 hotels in 21 states and the District of Columbia, with a total of more than 21,600 rooms. Our hotels are geographically diverse and concentrated in major urban areas and dense suburban markets that provide multiple demand generators from business, leisure and other travelers. At the same time, as a result of high construction costs and the density of these urban and suburban markets, these locales provide significant barriers to entry. We believe that our investment strategy and the current market environment present attractive opportunities for us to acquire additional hotels with significant upside potential. The company is a self-advised and self-administered Maryland real estate investment trust and is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the stock symbol "RLJ". Our strategy is to invest in focused service and compact full-service hotels, which typically generate most of their revenue from room rentals, have limited food and beverage outlets and meeting space, and require fewer employees than larger hotels. We believe that such premium-branded, focused-service hotels have the potential to provide attractive returns relative to other hotel types due to their ability to generate revenue per room comparable to that of full-service hotels, while providing higher profit margins as a result of a more efficient operating model and less volatile cash flows. Our hotels operate under well-recognized global brands, including Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn by Marriott, Hilton Garden Inn, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Hyatt Place and Embassy Suites and we maintain strong relationships with these leading franchisors. The company became publicly-traded in May 2011 and was formed to succeed to the hotel investment and ownership platform of RLJ Development and its two remaining lodging-focused private equity funds, RLJ Lodging Fund II, LP and RLJ Real Estate Fund III, LP. RLJ Development was co-founded in 2000 by Robert L. Johnson, our Executive Chairman, and Thomas J. Baltimore, Jr., our President and Chief Executive Officer, and, over more than 10 years of operations, the company has developed significant expertise in acquiring and asset managing focused service and compact full-service hotels. Our experienced senior management team, which operated the company's predecessor, is comprised of seasoned professionals with extensive industry relationships and asset management experience that will allow us to continue to compete effectively for acquisition activities and generate strong internal growth. In addition, we plan to enhance the value of this platform by being open and transparent in our investor communications and following sound corporate governance practices

To provide instant electronic gaming fun, our Company offers Mocha Clubs. With ten Mocha Clubs already in operation throughout Macau and Taipa, Mocha Clubs offer machine-based gaming entertainment in a cafe-style setting. As recently announced, our Company has successfully completed the acquisition of a 60% interest in the Studio City project on Cotai. This project is another significant milestone for our Company, and we believe its completion will complement our current portfolio of assets in Macau and will meaningfully increase our presence on Cotai, further driving long-term growth for our Company
