This Current Report on Form 8-K, including the exhibits filed herewith, contains forward-looking statements (including, without limitation, statements concerning the use of financing provided to borrowers and the expected repayment of financing extended to the borrowers) that are based on TGIF’s current expectations, plans, estimates, assumptions, and beliefs that involve numerous risks and uncertainties, including, without limitation, the future operating performance of the borrower and those risks set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of TGIF’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended or supplemented by TGIF’s other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
