The LCIF II units owned by the Trust will be converted into the Unit Consideration. Each of LCIF and LCIF II have each made limited representations, warranties and covenants in the Merger Agreement and the merger is subject to customary conditions described in the Merger Agreement. No objectors' or appraisal rights are available with respect to the merger or the other transactions contemplated thereby.

At the Effective Time, the Fifth Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of LCIF, as amended to date, or the Existing LCIF Agreement, will be amended and restated to, among other things, reflect the merger and include provisions related to the admission of the partners in LCIF II as partners in LCIF and update, amend and consolidate into the A&R LCIF Agreement the provisions of the Existing LCIF Agreement, the Second Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of LCIF II, as amended to date, or the Existing LCIF II Agreement. The form of the A&R LCIF Partnership Agreement that is expected to become effective at the Effective Time is attached as Exhibit A to the Merger Agreement.

2 In accordance with the terms of the Existing LCIF Agreement and the Existing LCIF II Agreement, the Trust, the general partner of each of LCIF and LCIF II and the holders of a majority of the outstanding LCIF units and LCIF II units held by the special limited partner of each of LCIF and LCIF II have consented to the merger and the A&R LCIF Agreement.
