These forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations of the Fund and Starlight regarding future events, including statements concerning the use of the remaining proceeds of the Offering to acquire Landmark at Coventry Pointe and the timing of the acquisition. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by terms such as "may", "might", "will", "could", "should", "would", "occur", "expect", "plan", "anticipate", "believe", "intend", "seek", "aim", "estimate", "target", "project", "predict", "forecast", "potential", "continue", "likely", "schedule", or the negative thereof or other similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts.
