Forward Looking Statements

The information presented herein may contain forward looking
statements. These forward looking statements, which are based on
current expectations, estimates and projections about the
industry and markets in which RLJ and FelCor operate and beliefs
of and assumptions made by RLJ management and FelCor management,
involve significant risks and uncertainties, which are difficult
to predict and are not guarantees of future performances, that
could significantly affect the financial results of RLJ or FelCor
or the combined company. Words such as projects, will, could,
continue, expects, anticipates, intends, plans, believes, seeks,
estimates, forecast, guidance, outlook, may, and might and
variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to
identify such forward looking statements, which generally are not
historical in nature. Such forward-looking statements may
include, but are not limited to, statements about the anticipated
benefits of the proposed merger between FelCor and RLJ, including
future financial and operating results, the attractiveness of the

predict results or the actual effect of future events, actions,
