These forward-looking statements are based upon SNH’s present intent, beliefs or expectations, but forward-looking statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur.

Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond SNH's control. For example:

  • This press release states that the asset sales announced today were part of SNH’s previously approved disposition plan to sell up to $900 million of assets. SNH cannot be sure that it will be able to sell additional assets or that any additional assets it may sell, when combined with proceeds from previous sales, will aggregate $900 million.

If SNH does not complete its disposition plan, its credit ratings may be adversely impacted and it may be limited in pursuing its business strategies.
  • This press release states that SNH expects to use the net proceeds from the sale of assets announced today to repay debt and for general business purposes. However, SNH may elect to use these proceeds for other reasons. Further, any reduction in SNH’s debt that may result from any repayment of its debt with these proceeds may be offset by future borrowings that SNH may incur.
