          HONORABLE DALE S. FISCHER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

         I. INTRODUCTION

         1. Plaintiff United States of America (“United States” or “the government”) and claimants JW Hospitality (VHG Intl) Ltd. and JW Hospitality (VHG US) LLC (“Claimants”) (collectively, together with certain non-claimants who have agreed to be bound by this Judgment[1], the “Parties”) have made a stipulated request for the entry of this Consent Judgment, which entry disposes of the claims of Claimants in their entirety, but is not dispositive of the action.[2]

         2. During 2016 and 2017, the government commenced thirty related civil forfeiture cases in the Central District of California, against a wide variety of real and personal property located in the United States and abroad, including defendant assets owned personally by members of the Low Family or by the Claimant Entities (collectively, the "Defendant Assets")[3], as set forth in further detail below.

         3. The United States initiated this civil forfeiture action on June 15, 2017. (Docket Number (“DN”) 1). Notice was given and published according to law. On October 11, 2017, JW Hospitality (VHG Intl) Ltd. and JW Hospitality (VHG US) LLC filed a verified claim (DN 26). The government and potential claimant Mubadala Development Company PJSC (“Mubadala”) have made a stipulated request to extend Mubadala's time to file a response to the Complaint to November 25, 2019 (DN 93). JW Hospitality (VHG Intl) Ltd. and JW Hospitality (VHG US) LLC remain the sole claimants in this action, and the time for filing claims and answers has expired, except for potential claimant Mubadala.

         4. The Stipulations sought entry of Consent Judgments in each of the following Actions, which would be case dispositive due to the lack of presence of other claimants:
