This press release contains forward-looking statements. Statements that are predictive in nature, that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions, or that include words such as expects, anticipates, intends, plans, believes, estimates, projects, forecasts, may, should and similar expressions are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, our management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections. These forward-looking statements, which include, among other things, the entry into the proposed senior secured credit facility, involve risks and uncertainties that could cause the outcome to be materially different, including Dynagas Partners not completing the Acquisition. Please see our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a more complete discussion of these and other risks and uncertainties.
