Some of the risks related to investing in commercial real estate generally and retail real estate specifically include, but are not limited to: the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; increasing competition for customers from internet retailers; market risks such as local property supply and demand conditions; tenants’ inability to pay rent; tenant turnover; inflation and other increases in operating costs; adverse changes in laws and regulations; relative illiquidity of real estate investments; changing market demographics; acts of God such as earthquakes, floods or other uninsured losses; interest rate fluctuations; and availability of financing.
An investment in Inland Income Trust’s shares involves significant risks. If Inland Income Trust is unable to effectively manage these risks, it may not meet its investment objectives and investors may lose some or all of their investment. Some of the risks related to investing in Inland Income Trust include, but are not limited to: the board of directors, rather than the trading market, determines the offering price of shares; there is limited liquidity because shares are not listed on an exchange or actively traded on a market; our share repurchase program may be modified or terminated, and the repurchase program has been suspended in the wake of the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and surrounding uncertainty; even if the repurchase program is restarted, it may be suspended again in the future; despite the company’s strategic plan, there is no guarantee that a liquidity event will occur or when it will occur, particularly given the economic uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic; distributions cannot be guaranteed and have been suspended in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic; distributions when paid may be paid from sources other than cash flow from operations, including borrowings and net offering proceeds; and failure to continue to qualify as a REIT and thus being required to pay federal, state and local taxes. Please consult the “Risk Factors” section of Inland Income Trust’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for more information on the specific risks.
