Also, whenever SEVN uses words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “estimate,” “will,” “may” and negatives or derivatives of these or similar expressions, SEVN is making forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon SEVN’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 SEVN’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 SEVN’s control. For example:

  • This press release references recent loans closed and future plans to further increase loan origination volume, further diversify our portfolio and continue to expand SEVN, which may imply that SEVN will close additional loans, that it will achieve increased portfolio diversification and that its business will continue to improve as a result. However, SEVN’s business and ability to execute loans and realize its investment objective are subject to various risks, including the competitive nature of the industry in which it operates, as well as other factors, many of which are outside its control, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. These risks and other factors may prevent SEVN from successfully closing additional loans and realizing its investment objective. Further, once SEVN invests or commits its remaining capital, its ability to continue to grow and fund loans will be subject to its ability to obtain additional cost-effective capital or its redeploying proceeds from repayments of its loan investments.

The information contained in SEVN’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, including under “Risk Factors” in SEVN’s periodic reports or incorporated therein, identifies other important factors that could cause SEVN’s actual results to differ materially from those stated in or implied by SEVN’s forward-looking statements.
