WARNING REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and other securities laws. Also, whenever DHC uses words such as "believe", "expect", "anticipate", "intend", "plan", "estimate", "will", "may" and negatives or derivatives of these or similar expressions, DHC is making forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon DHC’s present intent, beliefs or expectations, but forward-looking statements are not guaranteed to occur and may not occur. Actual results may differ materially from those contained in or implied by DHC’s forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond DHC's control. For example, this press release states that DHC’s dividend rate will be $0.01/share per quarter or $0.04/share per year. A possible implication of this statement is that DHC will continuously pay quarterly dividends of $0.01/share per quarter or $0.04/share per year in the future. DHC’s dividend rates are set and reset from time to time by DHC’s Board of Trustees. The DHC Board considers many factors when setting dividend rates including DHC’s historical and projected income, normalized funds from operations attributable to common shareholders, the then current and expected needs and availability of cash to pay DHC’s obligations and fund DHC’s investments, restrictions contained in DHC’s credit agreement, distributions which may be required to be paid to maintain DHC’s tax status as a real estate investment trust and other factors deemed relevant by DHC’s Board of Trustees in its discretion. Accordingly, future dividend rates may be increased or decreased and there is no assurance as to the rate at which future dividends will be declared and paid. For these reasons, among others, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance upon any forward looking statements in this press release. Except as required by law, DHC does not intend to update or change any forward looking statements as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
