Harris uses a value investment philosophy in selecting equity and equity-like securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers. The firm's investment philosophy spans across large, mid and small cap companies. In addition, Harris may hedge a client's exposure to direct or indirect foreign currencies. In constructing portfolios for their clients, the firm seeks out companies that they believe are trading in the market at significant discounts to their underlying value. Harris believes purchasing businesses at a discount to intrinsic value minimizes risk while providing substantial profit potential. The firm uses a bottom-up approach focused on individual companies, rather than focusing on specific economic factors or industries. Harris generates their research ideas from a variety of internal and external sources. The firm's research process seeks to identify companies selling at a discount to its estimate of intrinsic value.

PSCM is a concentrated, research-intensive, fundamental value investor in the public markets. Their funds' investment objectives are to preserve capital and to seek maximum, long-term capital appreciation commensurate with reasonable risk. The firm defines risk as the probability of a permanent loss of capital, rather than price volatility. In their value approach to investing, PSCM seeks to identify and invest in long and short investment opportunities they believe exhibit significant valuation discrepancies between current trading prices and intrinsic business (or net asset) value, often with a catalyst for value recognition. They focus on deeply undervalued or overvalued securities due to their belief that a well-priced purchase or short sale is often the most important determinant of the success of an investment. In addition, PSCM believes that the acquisition of a portfolio of investments, when acquired at a large discount to intrinsic value, provides a margin of safety that can mitigate the likelihood of an overall permanent loss of each fund's capital.

Venetian Macau Limited, our subsidiary, holds one of six concessions or subconcessions permitted by the Macao Government to operate casinos or gaming areas in Macao. We own The Venetian® Macao, Sands® Macao, The Plaza™ Macao and Sands® Cotai Central. We also own CotaiExpo™, one of the largest convention and exhibition halls in Asia; Macao’s largest entertainment venue, The CotaiArena™; the 1,800-seat luxury Venetian Theatre; and CotaiJet™, one of two major high-speed ferry companies operating between Hong Kong and Macao.

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

Blackstone's real estate investments are made in a variety of sectors, geographic locations and business climates. They make a significant number of investments in the lodging sector, major urban office buildings, residential properties, distribution and warehousing centers and a variety of real estate operating companies. Blackstone bases their investment strategy on identifying well-located institutional quality properties that suffer from temporary or correctable flaws in their tenancy, physical attributes, capital structures, market position or management.The firm's real estate philosophy is generally guided by the fundamental premise that future cash flow, not 'trophy status' or fashion, ultimately determines the value of an asset. Blackstone believes that rigorous due diligence, the use of conservative assumptions in projecting cash flows, and careful assessment of possible downside scenarios are the best methods for consistently achieving its objectives.In evaluating any investment opportunity, one of Blackstone's primary considerations is the potential exit strategy. To that end, the firm focuses on making investments in high quality, well-located assets. In addition, factors that reduce the value of an asset (such as ground leases, preemptive rights, long-term management contracts or other restrictions on the owner's control) are scrutinized during due diligence to determine the effects on value. Finally, the firm seeks investments with multiple exit strategies including private one-off sales, portfolio sales within common asset classes, mergers with existing public entities or initial public offerings of stand-alone operating companies.
