Forward Looking Statement

Certain statements in this press release that are not in the present or past
tense or that discuss the Company's expectations (including any use of the
words "anticipate," "assume," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "forecast,"
"guidance," "intend," "may," "might," "project", "should" or similar
expressions) are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal
securities laws and as such are based upon the Company's current beliefs as to
the outcome and timing of future events. There can be no assurance that actual
future developments affecting the Company will be those anticipated by the
Company. Examples of forward-looking statements include intended use of net
proceeds from the offering, projected net operating income, cap rates,
internal rates of return, future dividend payment rates, forecasts of FFO
accretion, projected capital improvements, expected sources of financing,
expectations as to the timing of closing of acquisitions, dispositions and
other potential transactions and descriptions relating to these expectations.
These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties (some of
which are beyond the control of the Company) and are subject to change based
upon various factors, including but not limited to the following risks and
uncertainties: changes in the real estate industry and in performance of the
financial markets; the demand for and market acceptance of the Company's
properties for rental purposes; the ability of the Company to enter into new
leases or renew leases on favorable terms; the amount and growth of the
Company's expenses; tenant financial difficulties and general economic
conditions, including interest rates, as well as economic conditions in those
areas where the Company owns properties; risks associated with joint venture
partners; risks associated with the ownership and development of real
property; termination of property management contracts; the bankruptcy or
insolvency of companies for which Parkway provides property management
services or the sale of these properties; the outcome of claims and litigation
involving or affecting the Company; the ability to satisfy conditions
necessary to close pending transactions and the ability to successfully
integrate pending transactions; applicable regulatory changes; and other risks
and uncertainties detailed from time to time in the Company's SEC filings.
Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should underlying
assumptions prove incorrect, the Company's business, financial condition,
liquidity, cash flows and financial results could differ materially from those
expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking
statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and
uncertainties arise over time, and it is not possible for us to predict the
occurrence of those matters or the manner in which they may affect us. The
Company does not undertake to update forward-looking statements except as may
be required by law.
