SEG offers a long-only equity management program that utilizes fundamental analysis to select stocks they believe will provide better than market returns over a complete market cycle. Money market reserves may comprise 0 to 50 percent of the account, but generally range from 0 to 20 percent, depending on market conditions. SEG generally limits their portfolio of securities to less than 40 than stocks in each account. SEG employs eight primary investment strategies. Their investment strategies are generally driven by a research-intensive, fundamental bottom-up process and draw upon a centralized research department. These strategies include: Small-Mid Cap /Long-Only, US Core, Concentrated Opportunistic, US Long/Short, International Long/Short, International Long-Only, Global Long-Only, and Private Equity. SEG obtains exposure to particular issuers or securities for their private funds (and may for individual clients) through various types of derivatives transactions, including swaps and contracts for differences. In addition, they may hedge exposure to currency fluctuations for foreign securities owned by the private funds by entering into currency forward or option transactions.

BAMCO's investment strategy is to invest in growth businesses for capital appreciation potential. Each portfolio manager's ability to choose appropriate investments for an account has a significant impact on their ability to achieve an account's investment objective. The firm's investment professionals are focused on fundamental analyses of businesses. Their primary objective is to understand the key drivers of growth and profitability of each company in which they invest. They analyze the following financial information: income statement, cash flow statement, balance sheet, turnover and ROE metrics, unit economics, and other company-specific data. This information is filtered through their valuation models, which they use to extrapolate long-term trends. They have meetings with the management which is a critical element of the firm's research process.

Long Pond Capital focuses on identifying asymmetry, a material disconnect between stock price and intrinsic value, at the company level across a broad investable universe of real estate and real-estate-related securities. The firm's strategy is value-oriented, fundamentally-driven and maintains a private equity approach to public equity investing. In managing the funds' accounts, Long Pond implements a rigorous bottom-up research process and seeks to identify asymmetry in securities with significant downside protection.Long Pond's investments may include, but are not limited to: (i) assets trading at a discount to their underlying value; (ii) companies undergoing a change in capital structure, business plan, management or any other \"overhang\" that creates dislocation; (iii) well-capitalized companies that will profit from the current industry distress; (iv) attractively priced, high return on invested capital opportunities where growth is driven by real estate and real estate-related fundamentals; (vi) relative value opportunities, including REITS, where a static asset base combined with market volatility provides for low-risk trading between similar companies when market prices diverge; and (vi) catalyst-driven short opportunities including dividend cuts, projected earnings misses, overvalued companies with the potential to miss clinical targets and/or where management has publicized unrealistic expectations for future events. Finally, Long Pond employs an intense focus on liquidity, leverage and capital structure in order to maximize downside protection in volatile markets. ^

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

On December 19, 2006, our Company listed on NASDAQ under the ticker symbol "MPEL", successfully raising in excess of US$1.14 billion in the process.

Through the implementation of innovative products and services and by working hand-in-hand with globally renowned brands, our Company intends to offer the best entertainment experience that aims to appeal to a broad spectrum of customers and thereby become the leader of Macau's gaming industry. In this endeavor, we have a number of projects currently underway or planned in the region.

It also held exclusive events including Asia's First Madonna Exhibition featuring over 50 iconic show accessories and costumes; and the 11th Chinese Film Media Awards, which has made its appearance in Macau for the very first time at the resort's Dancing Water Theater. 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
