(“K2”) has informed the REIT that K2 will not put forward any director nominees for election at the upcoming annual and special meeting of unitholders of the REIT (“Unitholders”), which is currently scheduled for May 24, 2018.

Certain statements in this news release may constitute “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable securities laws. Forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, and it may cause actual results, performance or achievements or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements or industry results expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Forward-looking information generally can be identified by the use of terms and phrases such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “could”, “estimate”, “expect”, “feel”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “predict”, “project”, “subject to”, “will”, “would”, and similar terms and phrases, including references to assumptions. Some of the specific forward-looking information referred to in this news release includes, but is not limited to, a statement that the REIT’s annual and special meeting is currently scheduled for May 24, 2018.
The forward-looking information contained in this news release are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Pure Multi-Family, including: the existence of highly credible parties willing and capable of participating in the sale process; and reasonably stable economies in the markets in which Pure Multi-Family operates.
Although Pure Multi-Family believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking information are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking information because Pure Multi-Family can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking information addresses future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, without limitation, the risk that the strategic review process may not result in a transaction and those factors that can be found under “Risk Factors” in Pure Multi-Family’s Annual Information Form dated March 21, 2018 and under “Risks and Uncertainties” in Pure Multi-Family’s Management’s Discussion and Analysis dated March 7, 2018, both of which are available on SEDAR at sedar.com.
