  • a new investment advisory contract between RAP and RMR Advisors, Inc.

In the reorganization, common shareholders of RIF will receive common shares of RAP.

The number of new common shares to be distributed will be determined as of the end of trading on the closing date of the reorganization. Pursuant to the reorganization, preferred shareholders of RIF will receive preferred shares of RAP, the aggregate liquidation preference of which will equal the aggregate liquidation preference of RIF’s preferred shares outstanding immediately prior to the reorganization. The terms of the preferred shares, including the auction dates, rate period and dividend payment dates of the preferred shares issued in the reorganization will be substantively identical to the terms of the RIF preferred shares.
