Forward Looking Statements and Other Disclosures
This presentation may contain forward-looking statements that are within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and such statements are intended to be covered by the safe harbor provided by the same. Forward-looking statements are subject to substantial risks and uncertainties, many of which are difficult to predict and are generally beyond management's control. These forward-looking statements may include information about possible or assumed future results of Apollo Commercial Real Estate Finance, Inc.'s ("ARI" or the "Company") business, financial condition, liquidity, results of operations, plans and objectives. When used in this presentation, the words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "plan," "continue," "intend," "should," "may" or similar expressions, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Statements regarding the following subjects, among others, may be forward-looking: the macro- and micro-economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic; the severity and duration of the COVID-19 pandemic; actions taken by governmental authorities to contain the COVID-19 pandemic or treat its impact; the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our financial condition, results operations, liquidity and capital resources; ARI's business and investment strategy; ARI's operating results; ARI's ability to obtain and maintain financing arrangements; the timing and amounts of expected future fundings of unfunded commitments; and the return on equity, the yield on investments and risks associated with investing in real estate assets including changes in business conditions and the general economy.
The forward-looking statements are based on management's beliefs, assumptions and expectations of future performance, taking into account all information currently available to ARI. Forward-looking statements are not predictions of future events. These beliefs, assumptions and expectations can change as a result of many possible events or factors, not all of which are known to ARI. Some of these factors are described under "Risk Factors," and "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" included in
ARI's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2020 and other filings, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2020 and other filings filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), which are accessible on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov. If a change occurs, ARI's business, financial condition, liquidity and results of operations may vary materially from those expressed in ARI's forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New risks and uncertainties arise over time, and it is not possible for management to predict those events or how they may affect ARI. Except as required by law, ARI is not obligated to, and does not intend to, update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
This presentation contains information regarding ARI's financial results that is calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), including Operating Earnings and Operating Earnings per share. Please refer to footnote 12 on page 20 for a definition of "Operating Earnings" and the reconciliation of the applicable GAAP financial measure to "Operating Earnings" set forth on page 16.
