Statements in this press release that are not strictly historical are
"forward-looking" statements.  Forward-looking statements involve known and
unknown risks, which may cause the Company's actual future results to differ
materially from expected results. For example, the fact that this offering has
priced may imply that this offering will close, but the closing is subject to
conditions customary in transactions of this type and may be delayed or may
not occur at all. No assurance can be given that the offering discussed above
will be completed on the terms described or at all, or that the net proceeds
of the offering will be used as indicated. Completion of the offering on the
terms described and the application of the net proceeds of the offering are
subject to numerous possible events, factors and conditions, many of which are
beyond the control of the Company and not all of which are known to us. These
risks include, among others, general economic conditions, local real estate
conditions, changes in interest rates, increases in operating costs, the
preferences and financial condition of our tenants, the availability of
capital, risks related to our status as a REIT, and the profitability of the
Company's taxable subsidiary.  Additional information concerning these and
other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those
forward-looking statements is contained from time to time in the Company's
Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") filings, including, but not limited
to, the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K. Copies of each filing may be
obtained from the Company or the SEC. Such forward-looking statements should
be regarded solely as reflections of the Company's current operating plans and
estimates. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly release the
results of any revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made
to reflect events or circumstances after the date these statements were made.
