Securities of COPT

COPT is not providing investment advice through this website, and the material on the website should not be regarded as an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities of COPT. If you decide to use any material available on this website in assessing whether to buy or sell securities of  COPT, please be aware that the material on the website reflects past performance and historical information only, and that such performance and information is not necessarily an indication of future performance.

Forward-Looking Information

This website may contain "forward-looking" statements, as defined in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, that are based on COPT's current expectations, estimates and projections about future events and financial trends affecting COPT. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "may", "will", "should", "expect", "estimate" or other comparable terminology. Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which COPT cannot predict with accuracy and some of which COPT might not even anticipate. Accordingly, COPT can give no assurance that these expectations, estimates and projections will be achieved. Future events and actual results may differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements.

Important factors that may affect these expectations, estimates, and projections include, but are not limited to:

  • the Company's ability to borrow on favorable terms;
  • general economic and business conditions, which will, among other things, affect office property demand and rents, tenant creditworthiness, interest rates and financing availability;
  • adverse changes in the real estate markets including, among other things, increased competition with other companies;
  • risk of real estate acquisition and development, including, among other things, risks that development projects may not be completed on schedule, that tenants may not take occupancy or pay rent or that development or operating costs may be greater than anticipated;
  • risks of investing through joint venture structures, including risks that the Company's joint venture partners may not fulfill their financial obligations as investors or may take actions that are inconsistent with the Company's objectives;
  • our ability to satisfy and operate effectively under federal income tax rules relating to real estate investment trusts and partnerships; governmental actions and initiatives; and environmental requirements.

COPT undertakes no obligation to update or supplement any forward-looking statements. For further information, please refer to the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly the section entitled "Risk Factors" in Item 1 of COPT's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Limitation of Liability

COPT shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential or exemplary damages, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses (even if COPT has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from: (i) your use or inability to use the website; (ii) unauthorized access to or alteration of your transmissions or data; (iii) statement or conduct or any third party on the website; or (iv) any other matter relating to the website.


If any provision of these Terms of Use is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity, legality and enforceability of such provision in every other respect, and the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions contained in these Terms of Use, will not be impaired in any way by such holding.
