FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS Certain items in this press release may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including, but not limited to, statements relating to the offering and intended use of proceeds. These statements are based on management's current expectations and beliefs and are subject to a number of trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements, many of which are beyond our control. Newcastle can give no assurance that its expectations will be attained. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from Newcastle's expectations include, but are not limited to, the risk that market conditions cause downgrades of a significant number of our securities or the recording of additional impairment charges or reductions in shareholders’ equity; the risk that we cannot find additional suitably priced investments; the risk that investments made or committed to be made cannot be financed on the basis and for the term at which we expect; the relationship between yields on assets which are paid off and yields on assets in which such monies can be reinvested; and the relative spreads between the yield on the assets we invest in and the cost and availability of debt and equity financing. Additional risks that are directly related to investments in senior housing include, but are not limited to, the risk that we are dependent on the performance of our operators, the risk that a downturn in the housing market or an overall economic downturn could cause our occupancy rates, revenues and results of operations to decline, the risk that increases in labor costs at our senior housing facilities may have a material adverse effect on us.
