Real Estate Investment Trust UpdateAs previously disclosed, we are actively considering an election to real estate investment trust (REIT) status. On November 16, 2012, in conjunction with our review regarding a potential REIT election, we submitted a private letter ruling request to the Internal Revenue Service. If we receive a favorable response and decide to proceed with a REIT election, we intend to make the election for the taxable year beginning January 1, 2014, subject to the approval of our board of directors. A favorable IRS ruling, if received, does not guarantee that we would succeed in qualifying as a REIT and there is no certainty as to the timing of a REIT election or whether we will ultimately decide to make a REIT election.
