  1. Securities Law and Offerings

Investments in real estate investment trusts (“REITs”) are subject to substantial risks. You should consult your tax and financial advisors before using any information on this Website or making an investment in any product described on the Website. The risks involved in investing in NorthStar Income include, without limitation, the following:

  • We have no operating history. The prior performance of NorthStar Income does not guarantee similar future results. There is no assurance that we will achieve our investment objectives. 
  • NorthStar Income may face diverging interests from its stockholders as a result of compensation arrangements, time constraints and competition for investments and for tenants.
  • If we raise substantially less than the maximum offering, we may not be able to acquire an optimally diverse portfolio of investments, and the value of your shares could depend on the performance of specific assets. 
  • We may change our investment policies without stockholder consent, which could result in investments that may be different from those described on the Website.
  • If we pay distributions from sources other than our cash flow from operations, we may have less funds available for investment and overall return on any of our investment products may be reduced. NorthStar Income cannot guaranty that it will not undertake actions that may dilute the equity ownership of public stockholders. 
  • The offering price of our shares is set arbitrarily. This price may be unrelated to the book or net value of our assets or to our expected operating income.
  • No public market currently exists for our shares and we are not obligated to effectuate a liquidity event by a certain date.
  • If we fail to qualify as a REIT for federal income tax purposes and no relief provisions apply, our cash available for distribution to our stockholders and the value of our shares could materially decrease.
  • Our intended investments in any structured debt securities may be subject to risks relating to the volatility in the value of underlying collateral, default on underlying income streams, fluctuations in interests rates, and other risks associated with such securities which may be unknown and unaccounted for by issuers of the securities and by rating agencies. These investments may only be suitable for sophisticated investors with a high-risk investment profile.
