CAUTIONARY STATEMENT CONCERNING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This communication contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements involve estimates, expectations, projections, goals, assumptions, known and unknown risks, and uncertainties and typically include words or variations of words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “intend,” “plan,” “seek,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “goal,” “guidance,” “outlook,” “objective,” “forecast,” “target,” “potential,” “continue,” “would,” “will,” “should,” “could,” or “may” or other comparable terms and phrases. All statements that address operating performance, events, or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will occur in the future are forward-looking statements. They may include estimates of expected cash available for distribution, earnings, revenues, capital expenditures, liquidity, capital structure, future growth, financing arrangements and other financial performance items (including future dividends per share), descriptions of management’s plans or objectives for future operations, products, or services, or descriptions of assumptions underlying any of the above. Forward-looking statements provide the Company’s current expectations or predictions of future conditions, events, or results and speak only as of the date they are made. Although the Company believes its expectations and assumptions are reasonable, it can give no assurance that these expectations and assumptions will prove to have been correct and actual results may vary materially.

Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations, or cautionary statements, are listed below and further disclosed under the section entitled Item 1A. Risk Factors:

risks related to our relationship with "SunEdison" (defined as SunEdison, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries, excluding TerraForm Power, Inc. and its subsidiaries and TerraForm, Global, Inc. and its subsidiaries);
risks related to SunEdison's bankruptcy filing, including our continuing transition away from reliance on SunEdison for management, corporate and accounting services, employees, critical systems and information technology infrastructure, and the operation, maintenance and asset management of our renewable energy facilities;
risks related to events of default and potential events of default arising under (i) our revolving credit facility (the “Revolver”), (ii) the indentures governing our Senior Notes due 2023 and Senior Notes due 2025 (the "Indentures"), and/or (iii) project-level financings and other agreements related to the SunEdison Bankruptcy, our failure to obtain corporate and/or project level audits, SunEdison’s failure to perform its obligations under project-level agreements, and/or related adverse effects on our business and operations (including the delay in our SEC filings) and other factors;
risks related to failure to timely file SEC reports and to satisfy the requirements of the NASDAQ, which could result in delisting of our common stock;
risks related to the merger and the sponsorship transaction with Brookfield Asset Management, Inc. and certain of its affiliates, including failure to satisfy conditions to consummation of the merger and the sponsorship transaction, our failure to realize the expected benefits of the transaction and the diminished likelihood that a third party would make a competing transaction proposal;
risks related to the pendency of the merger and the sponsorship transaction, including disruptions to our business, conflicts of interest and employee departures;
risks relating to the failure to consummate the merger and the sponsorship transaction, including a potential adverse impact on the trading price of our common stock, the potential termination of our settlement agreement with SunEdison and the likelihood we would need to operate without a sponsor indefinitely or until we were able to conclude a transaction with another party, if at all;
our ability to integrate the renewable energy facilities we acquire from third parties or otherwise and realize the anticipated benefits from such acquisitions;
the willingness and ability of the counterparties to our offtake agreements to fulfill their obligations under such agreements;
price fluctuations, termination provisions and buyout provisions related to our offtake agreements;
our ability to enter into contracts to sell power on acceptable prices and terms, including as our offtake agreements expire;
our ability to successfully identify, evaluate and consummate acquisitions;
government regulation, including compliance with regulatory and permit requirements and changes in market rules or regulations, rates, tariffs, environmental, tax or other laws, policies and incentives affecting the energy markets in general or renewable energy facilities in particular, including any such changes that may be implemented following the recent elections in the U.S. and changes to federal and state tax laws related to renewable energy and renewable energy portfolio standards or renewable energy credits;
