This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of such state or jurisdiction.
Some statements in this release may constitute forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Reform Act of 1995. Actual results and trends could differ materially from those set forth in such statements due to the following risks: The failure to qualify or maintain the requirements to be taxed as a REIT would reduce the amount of income available for distribution and limit the Company's ability to make distributions to its stockholders. No public market initially exists for the Company's shares of common stock, and one may never exist for this or any other such type of real estate program. Securities are being offered on a best efforts basis. These are speculative securities and as such involve a high degree of risk. There are substantial conflicts among the Company and its sponsor, advisor, dealer manager, property manager and other affiliates. There is no assurance that the value of the real estate will be sufficient to return any portion of investors' original capital. Operating results will be affected by economic and regulatory changes that have an adverse impact on the real estate market and the Company cannot assure you that there will be growth in the value of the properties.
