and uncertainties include, without limitation: the possibility that the
company's merger with Wexford Science & Technology may not occur on the terms

expansion into new markets, or to complete or integrate acquisitions and
developments successfully, including the company's merger with Wexford Science

without limitation, the inability to enter into or renew leases, dependence on
tenants' financial condition, and competition from other developers, owners
and operators of real estate); adverse economic or real estate developments in
the life science industry or the company's target markets; risks associated

indebtedness as it comes due; failure to maintain the company's investment
grade credit ratings with the ratings agencies; reductions in asset valuations
and related impairment charges; risks and uncertainties affecting property
development and construction; risks associated with downturns in foreign,
domestic and local economies, changes in interest rates and foreign currency

including borrower defaults and potential principal losses; potential
liability for uninsured losses and environmental contamination; risks
associated with the company's potential failure to qualify as a REIT under the
