The tender offer will be open to all FVE stockholders.


ABP Acquisition LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of ABP Trust. Barry M. Portnoy and Adam D. Portnoy beneficially own ABP Trust and through ABP Trust they are the controlling stockholders of The RMR Group Inc. (Nasdaq: RMR). The RMR Group Inc., acting through its subsidiary The RMR Group LLC, provides management services to FVE. Barry Portnoy is a Managing Director of FVE. The Independent Directors of FVE approved the waiver of certain ownership restrictions in FVE’s governing documents to permit ABP Acquisition LLC to commence and complete the contemplated tender offer, and ABP Acquisition LLC and the shares it acquires in the tender offer will be subject to standstill and lockup restrictions for extended periods.

Once the tender offer is commenced, offering materials will be mailed to FVE stockholders and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). FVE shareholders should read the offering materials when they become available, because they will contain important information.
