Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.
On September 17, 2021, we held a special meeting of our shareholders at which our shareholders were asked to consider and vote upon the following proposals:
|1.||Approval of the merger, or the Merger, of the Company with and into RMR Mortgage Trust, a Maryland statutory trust, or RMRM, with RMRM continuing as the surviving entity in the Merger, pursuant to the terms and subject to the conditions of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of April 26, 2021, as it may be amended from time to time, or the Merger Agreement, by and between us and RMRM and the other transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement to which the Company is a party (which proposal we refer to as the TRMT Merger Proposal); and|
|2.||Approval of the adjournment of our special meeting of shareholders from time to time, if necessary or appropriate, including to solicit additional proxies in favor of the TRMT Merger Proposal if there are insufficient votes at the time of such adjournment to approve such proposal (which proposal we refer to as the TRMT Adjournment Proposal).|
Each of the foregoing proposals is described in detail in the definitive joint proxy statement/prospectus, or the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus, we filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, on July 26, 2021, and the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus has been supplemented by supplements to the Joint Proxy Statement/Prospectus we filed with the SEC.
For each of the proposals, a quorum was present. According to the report of the Inspector of Elections, the TRMT Merger Proposal was approved by the requisite vote of the holders of our common shares. The voting results for the TRMT Merger Proposal are as follows:
The results reported above are final voting results.
We did not call the vote on the TRMT Adjournment Proposal as there were sufficient votes to approve the TRMT Merger Proposal.
