Name of Person Filing:

 

This Schedule 13G is being filed jointly by TPG Group Holdings (SBS) Advisors, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Group Advisors”), TPG Real Estate GenPar Advisors, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“TPG Real Estate Advisors”), David Bonderman and James G. Coulter (each, a “Reporting Person” and, together, the “Reporting Persons”), pursuant to an Agreement of Joint Filing, a copy of which is filed with this Schedule 13G as Exhibit 1, in accordance with Rule 13d-1(k)(1) under the Act.

 

Group Advisors is the sole member of TPG Group Holdings (SBS) Advisors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG Group Holdings (SBS), L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the (i) sole shareholder of TPG Holdings III-A, Inc., a Cayman corporation, and (ii) sole member of TPG Holdings II-A, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. TPG Holdings III-A, Inc. is the general partner of TPG Holdings III-A, L.P., a Cayman limited partnership, which is the general partner of TPG Holdings III, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG Holdings III”), which (i) directly holds 1,811,251 shares of Common Stock and (ii) is the sole member of TPG DASA Advisors (RE) II, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG NJ DASA GenPar C, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the general partner of TPG/NJ (RE) Partnership, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG/NJ RE Partnership”), which directly holds 4,693,916 shares of Common Stock.

 

TPG Holdings II-A, LLC is the general partner of TPG Holdings II, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is general partner of TPG Holdings II Sub, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which is the sole member of TPG Real Estate Advisors, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company, which is the general partner of TPG RE Finance Trust Management, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG RE Finance Trust Management”), which directly holds 32,745 shares of Class A common stock (“Class A Common Stock”) of the Issuer. TPG Real Estate Advisors is the general partner of TPG RE Finance Trust Equity, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“TPG RE Finance Trust Equity” and, together with TPG Holdings III, TPG/NJ RE Partnership and TPG RE Finance Trust Management, the “TPG Funds”), which directly holds 926,951 shares of Class A Common Stock. Pursuant to the Articles of Amendment and Restatement of the Issuer, each share of Class A Common Stock is convertible at any time or from time to time, at the option of the holder, for one share of Common Stock.

 

Because of Group Advisors’ relationship to TPG Holdings III and TPG/NJ RE Partnership, Group Advisors may be deemed to beneficially own the shares of Common Stock held by TPG Holdings III and TPG/NJ RE Partnership, respectively. Because of Group Advisors’ relationship to TPG RE Finance Trust Management, Group Advisors may be deemed to beneficially own the shares of Class A Common Stock held by TPG RE Finance Trust Management. Because of TPG Real Estate Advisors’ relationship to TPG RE Finance Trust Equity, TPG Real Estate Advisors may be deemed to beneficially own the shares of Class A Common Stock held by TPG RE Finance Trust Equity.

 

David Bonderman and James G. Coulter are sole shareholders of each of Group Advisors and TPG Real Estate Advisors, and may therefore be deemed to beneficially own the shares of Common Stock and Class A Common Stock held by the TPG Funds. Messrs. Bonderman and Coulter disclaim beneficial ownership of the shares of Common Stock and Class A Common Stock held by the TPG Funds except to the extent of their pecuniary interest therein.
