This press release contains certain forward-looking statements that can be identified by using words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “wait”, “project”, “intend”, “may” or similar expressions. Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans, strategies, anticipated events, trends and other matters that are not historical facts. These forward-looking statements reflect our current expectations and assumptions about our business, the economy and other future events and conditions and are based on the currently available financial, economic and competitive data and our current business plans. Actual results may vary materially depending on the risks, uncertainties and changes in circumstances that may affect our operations, markets, services, prices and other factors, as discussed in the Risk Factors section of our other files with the Securities and Exchange Commission. While we believe our assumptions to be reasonable, we caution you against relying on any forward-looking statements, as it is very difficult to predict the impact of known factors and it is impossible for us to predict all factors that could affect our actual results. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, our ability to achieve our projected revenue and pro forma leverage ratio and generate free cash flow to further reduce our indebtedness; our ability to manage our business through the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, a weakening of global economic and financial conditions, changes in government regulations and related compliance and litigation costs and other factors listed in our SEC filings. In addition, our business may be adversely and materially affected by changes in the retail and real estate sectors, including consolidation and closing of stores, especially among anchor tenants; current economic conditions, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken by government officials and other third parties to reduce its spread, and the corresponding effects on tenants’ business performance, prospects, solvency and lease decisions; our inability to collect rent due to tenants’ bankruptcy or insolvency or otherwise; our ability to maintain and increase property occupancy, sales and rental rates; increases in operating costs that cannot be passed on to tenants; the effects of online shopping and other uses of technology on our tenants; risks related to our development and redevelopment activities, including delays, cost overruns and our inability to meet projected occupancy or rent rates; acts of violence in shopping malls, including our properties, or other similar spaces, and the potential effect on traffic and sales; our ability to sell properties that we seek to dispose of or our ability to obtain the prices that we seek; our substantial debt and the preference to settle our preferred shares and our high leverage ratio and our ability to remain in compliance with our financial commitments under our credit lines; our ability to refinance our existing indebtedness when it matures, on favorable terms or under any condition; our ability to raise capital, including through the sale of properties or equity interests and through the issuance of shares or bonds linked to shares if market conditions are favorable; and potential dilution of any capital increase transactions or other share issues.
Additional factors that could cause future events, achievements or results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements include those discussed in this document and the sections entitled “Item 1A. Risk factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2020. We do not intend to update or revise any forward-looking statements to reflect new information, future events or otherwise.
