Prospective investors are requested to inform themselves comprehensively and, in particular, to verify the Definitive Documents which are expected to be provided in the future.

Real Estate Related Risks

Investments in real estate funds such as those described herein, are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including risks inherent in private, closed end real estate funds, such as lack of liquidity, lack of diversification and dependence on key personnel of the fund sponsor, as well as risks inherent in the types of investments such funds make, competition for investment opportunities, changes in market conditions, regulatory and environmental risks, entitlement and development risks and risks of tenant, purchaser or seller defaults on contractual obligations. Investors in real estate funds must be able to evaluate and bear the potential consequences of these and other risks, including the potential loss of their entire investment. The characteristics of investments to be made by the Fund may vary from the characteristics of those shown herein and may not have comparable risks and returns. An investment in the Fund is speculative and involves significant risks, including loss of the entire investment and is suitable only for sophisticated investors who fully understand and are capable of bearing the risks of an investment in the Fund. The Fund will be illiquid, as there is limited to no secondary market for interests in the Fund and there are significant restrictions to transfers of interests in the Fund. A recipient who has preliminary interest in the Fund should understand these risks and have the financial ability and willingness to accept such risks for an extended period of time before considering making an investment in the Fund.

Prior or Targeted Performance

Any investment entails a risk of loss, including loss of the entire investment. In considering any performance data contained herein, each recipient should bear in mind that past performance is not indicative of future results, and there can be no assurance that an investment program will achieve comparable results or will achieve any target or estimated results.

The Fund will make investments in different economic conditions than those prevailing in the past. Thus, no guarantee is made that the Fund will have the same types or diversity of investment opportunities as prior vehicles. While Hines believes all performance targets and estimates to be reasonable and sound under the current circumstances, actual returns will depend on, among other factors, future operating results, the value of the assets and market conditions at the time of disposition, legal and contractual restrictions on transfer that may limit liquidity, any related transaction costs and the timing and manner of sale, all of which may differ materially from the assumptions and circumstances on which the estimated future cash flows and exit values used in the performance estimates and targets contained herein are based. Accordingly, nothing herein should be deemed to be a prediction or projection of future performance of the Fund and actual realized returns on unrealized investments may be materially different from the returns indicated herein. Additional information on the performance and other numbers presented herein is available from Hines upon request. Please refer to the Definitive Documents for detailed information on Fund performance.

Track Record

The Hines property investments and investment programs referred to herein were made at different times, with materially different terms and in materially different market conditions than those contemplated for the Fund. The results of the investment programs presented illustrate results that could be achieved in certain conditions if the underlying assumptions prove to be correct. In considering all of the track record and performance information contained herein, prospective investors should bear in mind that past performance is not indicative of future results, and there can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve comparable results to historical transactions or that the Fund will be able to implement its investment strategy and investment approach or achieve its investment objective.
