Information set forth herein contains "forward-looking statements" (within the meaning of the federal securities laws, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), which reflect the Company's expectations and projections regarding future events and plans, including Mr. Rufrano’s expected recovery and the management of the business during his recovery.

These forward-looking statements are based on information currently available to the Company and involve a number of known and unknown assumptions, risks, uncertainties and other factors, which may be difficult to predict and beyond the control of the Company, which could cause actual events and plans or could cause the Company’s business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements: the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on our business and the business of our tenants and the economy generally and other risks and uncertainties detailed in the risks identified in Part I, Item 1A. Risk Factors within the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 26, 2020. The Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying assumptions or factors, new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by law.
