Although forward-looking statements are made based upon management’s present expectations and reasonable beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effect upon the Company, a number of factors could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Such factors may include: (1) the expected timing and likelihood of completion of the Company’s pending merger with the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, CTO NEWCO REIT, Inc. (the “Merger”); (2) risks related to disruption of management’s attention from ongoing business operations due to the Merger and REIT conversion; (3) the Company’s ability to remain qualified as a REIT; (4) the Company’s exposure to U.S. federal and state income tax law changes, including changes to the REIT requirements; (5) general adverse economic and real estate conditions; (6) the inability of major tenants to continue paying their rent or obligations due to bankruptcy, insolvency or a general downturn in their business; (7) the completion of 1031 exchange transactions; (8) the availability of investment properties that meet the Company’s investment goals and criteria; (9) the uncertainties associated with obtaining required governmental permits and satisfying other closing conditions for planned acquisitions and sales; and (10) an epidemic or pandemic (such as the outbreak and worldwide spread of the novel coronavirus (“COVID-19”)), and the measures that international, federal, state and local governments, agencies, law enforcement and/or health authorities implement to address it, which may (as with COVID-19) precipitate or exacerbate one or more of the above-mentioned and/or other risks, and significantly disrupt or prevent us from operating our business in the ordinary course for an extended period.
