WARNING REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This press release contains forward looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. These forward looking statements are based upon TRMT’s present beliefs and expectations, but these statements and the implications of these statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur for various reasons, some of which are beyond TRMT’s control. For example, this press release states that TRMT’s dividend rate will be $0.22/share per quarter or $0.88/share per year. A possible implication of this statement is that TRMT will continuously pay quarterly dividends of $0.22/share per quarter or $0.88/share per year in the future. The TRMT Board considers many factors when determining whether to declare dividends, including TRMT's historical and projected income, core earnings, the then current and expected needs and availability of cash to pay TRMT's obligations and fund its investments, distributions which may be required to be paid by TRMT to qualify for taxation as a real estate investment trust and other factors deemed relevant by TRMT's Board of Trustees in its discretion. Accordingly, future dividends may be increased or decreased and there is no assurance as to the rate at which future dividends will be paid, and they could decline in amount or be suspended or discontinued. For these reasons, among others, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward looking statements in this press release. Except as required by law, TRMT does not intend to update or change any forward looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
