A. The Company, formerly known as Federal Realty Investment Trust, a Maryland real estate investment trust, has undertaken a reorganization (the “Reorganization”) pursuant to which:

Effective as of 12:00 a.m. on January 1, 2022, Merger Sub merged with and into the Company, with the Company being the surviving entity (the “Merger”), and the Company changed its name to Federal Realty Interim Real Estate Investment Trust.



Following the Merger, Holdco changed its name to “Federal Realty Investment Trust” (the former name of the Company), and the Company converted to a Delaware limited partnership named “Federal Realty OP LP” (the “Conversion”).



Holdco will be the sole initial limited partner of the Company following the Conversion. Federal Realty GP LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and wholly-owned subsidiary of Holdco, will be the initial general partner of the Company.
