The Board of Trustees notes the unsatisfactory result received on the
non-binding advisory vote on executive compensation. The Board takes the views
of unitholders seriously and will continue to expand its engagement with
unitholders and take unitholder feedback into consideration for future
decisions. Consistent with our approach to say-on-pay, we will disclose to
unitholders as soon as practicable, and no later than six months from today, a
summary of feedback received and any changes to the executive compensation
programs made or anticipated.
