This prospectus supplement should be read in conjunction with the Prospectus, is qualified by reference to the Prospectus, and may not be delivered without the Prospectus. Except as expressly stated below as supplementing or superseding the information contained in the Prospectus, all other information set forth in the Prospectus is unchanged. Capitalized terms used in this prospectus supplement but not defined herein will have the same meanings as specified in the Prospectus.

The following information supplements and updates the information contained in the Prospectus.

 

(1)All references in the Prospectus to our address are replaced with references to our current address of 4040 Wilson Blvd., Suite 1000, Arlington, Virginia 22203.

 

(2)All references in the Prospectus to “two business days” are replaced with references to “three business days” for purposes of optional cash investments. Accordingly, if a participant in the Plan elects to make optional cash payments, the participant must send funds to the Plan administrator at least three business days prior to the related investment date. This updates the current requirement that funds be received at least two business days prior to the related investment date. Additionally, if a participant changes their mind, the Plan administrator will return their optional cash investment of less than $100,000 to them if the Plan administrator receives a request from the participant at least three business days before the next investment date. Funds for optional cash investments of not more than $100,000 received less than three business days before the next investment date will be invested on the investment date in the next quarter.

 

See the risk factor titled “You will not know the price at which you will be purchasing shares under the Plan until several days after you have made an investment decision” on page 8 of the Prospectus; Question 13 on page 15 of the Prospectus; Question 16 on page 17 of the Prospectus; and Question 26 on page 20 of the Prospectus.

 

(3)The $15 service fee referred to in Question 27 on page 20 of the Prospectus is updated to reflect a $25 fee.
