FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS AND DISCLAIMERS
Certain matters discussed in this press release, including the attachments, contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) that are subject to risks and uncertainties. For these statements, we claim the protections of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in such Sections. These forward-looking statements include information about possible or assumed future results of our business, financial condition, liquidity, capital expenditures, results of operations, plans and objectives, macroeconomic conditions and our proposed transaction with EQT and PSP. In some cases, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “outlook,” “plan,” “continue,” “intend,” “should,” “may”, “will,” or similar expressions, their negative or other variations or comparable terminology.
Forward-looking statements are subject to significant risks and uncertainties and are based on beliefs, assumptions and expectations based upon our historical performance and on our current plans, estimates and expectations in light of information available to us. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by law, we are not obligated to, and do not intend to, update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Forward-looking statements are subject to various risks and uncertainties and assumptions relating to our operations, financial results, financial condition, business, prospects, growth strategy and liquidity. Actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results.
Certain important factors that we think could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or contemplated by the forward-looking statements are summarized below. Other factors besides those summarized could also adversely affect us. We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time and it is not possible for management to predict all such risks and uncertainties or how they may affect us. In addition, we cannot assess the impact of each factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.
Important other factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or contemplated by the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: our proposed transaction with EQT and PSP may not be completed in a timely manner or at all, including the risk that any required antitrust and foreign direct investment approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect us or the expected benefits of the proposed transaction or that the approval of our shareholders is not obtained; the failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction; the possibility that any or all of the various conditions to the consummation of the proposed transaction may not be satisfied or waived, including the failure to receive any required antitrust and foreign direct investment approvals from any applicable governmental entities (or any conditions, limitations or restrictions placed on such approvals) and to satisfy conditions related to there being no event of default under certain of Radius’s existing debt facilities and Radius having a specified minimum cash balance at closing; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the proposed transaction, including in circumstances that would require us to pay a termination fee or other expenses; the effect of the announcement or pendency of the proposed transaction on our ability to retain and hire key personnel, our ability to maintain the relationships with its customers, suppliers and others with whom it does business, or its operating results and business generally; risks related to diverting management’s attention from our ongoing business operations; the risk that shareholder litigation in connection with the proposed transaction may result in significant costs of defense, indemnification and liability; the extent that wireless carriers (mobile network operators, or “MNOs”) or tower companies consolidate their operations, exit the wireless communications business or share site infrastructure to a significant degree; the extent that new technologies reduce demand for wireless infrastructure; competition for assets; whether the tenant leases for the wireless communication tower, antennae or other digital communications infrastructure located on our real property interests are renewed with similar rates or at all; the extent of unexpected lease cancellations, given that most of the tenant leases associated with our assets may be terminated upon limited notice by the MNO or tower company and unexpected lease cancellations could materially impact cash flow from operations; economic, political, cultural, and regulatory risks and other risks to our operations outside the
