investment positions, and any such change could be material. There can
be no assurance that the Company's estimated book value per common share
as of August 31, 2018 is indicative of what the Company's results are
likely to be for the three or nine month period ending September 30,
2018 or in future periods, and the Company undertakes no obligation to
update or revise its estimated book value per common share prior to
