SUMMARY OF RISK FACTORS (click here to view a complete set of risk factors)
An investment in our shares is speculative, illiquid and involves a high degree of risk and there is no guarantee that investors will receive any return or that they will not lose their entire investment. No public market exists for our shares; a stockholders’ ability to dispose of their shares will likely be limited to repurchase by us; our share repurchase program is subject to restrictions and our board of directors may modify or suspend our share repurchase program at any time; purchases and repurchases of shares of our common stock are made based on the most recently disclosed NAV per share at such time, NAV does not currently represent our enterprise value and may not accurately reflect the actual prices at which our assets could be liquidated on any given day, the value a third party would pay for all or substantially all of our shares, or the price that our shares would trade at on a national stock exchange; our board of directors may amend our NAV procedures from time to time; distributions are not guaranteed and have in the past and may in the future be funded with offering proceeds, we have no limit on the amounts we may pay from such sources; we depend on our advisor to select investments and to manage our business; we pay substantial compensation to our advisor and its affiliates, which increase the risk that our stockholders will not earn a profit on their investment; certain of our officers and our directors are also officers and directors of our sponsor, advisor and their affiliates and, as a result, are subject to conflicts of interest, including conflicts arising from time constraints and the fact that the fees our advisor receives for services rendered to us are based on our NAV, which our advisor is responsible for determining; stockholders’ interest in us will be diluted if we issue additional shares; stockholders’ interest in our assets will also be diluted if our operating partnership issues additional units; there are restrictions on the ownership and transferability of our shares of common stock; if we fail to qualify as a REIT and no relief provisions apply, our NAV and cash available for distribution to our stockholders could materially decrease; we will be subject to risks generally associated with the development and operation of real estate including, but not limited to, economic risks, legislative risks, tax risks, environmental risks, financing risks, liquidity risks and lack of diversification; the outbreak of widespread contagious disease, such as the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, could adversely impact our operations and the value of our investments.
