Forward-Looking Language

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and businesses of HTA, the Acquisitions as described in this press release and the financial performance and business of HTA after completion of the Acquisitions.

These forward-looking statements, which can be identified by the use of words such as “expects,” “plans,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “projects,” “intends,” “believes,” outlook,” and similar expressions that do not relate to historical matters, are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions which may not be realized and involve risks and uncertainties, many of which cannot be predicted with accuracy and some of which might not even be anticipated, that could cause actual outcomes and results, financial and otherwise, to differ materially, including statements related to the closing of the Acquisitions.

Risks and other factors related to HTA that might cause such differences include, among others, the following: we may abandon development or redevelopment opportunities for which we have already incurred costs; adverse capital market conditions may affect our access to various sources of capital and/or cost of capital, which may affect our business activities, earnings and common stock price, among other things; we may not be able to effectively deploy the net proceeds of offerings of securities; changes in economic conditions affecting the healthcare property sector, the commercial real estate market and the credit market may affect our performance and financial condition; competition for acquisition of medical office buildings and other facilities that serve the healthcare industry could increase; economic fluctuations in certain states in which our property investments are geographically concentrated could affect our results of operations; and we may not be able to retain our senior management team.

Any forward-looking statements or forecasts relating to the business, prospects, operating statistics or financial results relating to the Acquisitions are based on assumptions and are inherently speculative, are subject to substantial uncertainty, and the actual operating statistics and financial results may differ materially from HTA’s forecasts. Risks and other factors related to the Acquisitions that might cause such differences include, among other things, the following: we may not be able to consummate the Acquisitions on time or on the terms currently expected or at all; we may not be able to effectively integrate the assets acquired in the Acquisitions into our portfolio and/or we may fail to achieve expected efficiencies and synergies; our assumptions concerning the availability and/or terms of financing related to the Acquisitions may not be realized; we may encounter liabilities for which we are responsible that were unknown at the time we agreed to the Acquisitions; and our assumptions concerning risks relating to our lack of control of joint ventures may prove incorrect.

In addition, HTA’s forecasts are subject to a variety of additional factors and risks, including the risks set forth under “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in HTA’s Form 10-K, and in HTA’s other periodic and Form 8-K filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. HTA undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or the occurrence of unanticipated events except as required by applicable law.”
