Terms of Use and Privacy Policy

(Revised January 1, 2018)

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS OF USE AND PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY:

You have reached a website owned and operated by American Assets Trust, Inc. (collectively, including its affiliates and subsidiaries, “AAT”, or “we”, or “us”, or “our”). By accessing and using our website and related links (“Website”), you agree to be bound to the following terms of use and privacy policy (“Terms of Use”).

Securities of American Assets Trust, Inc.

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

Forward Looking Statements

AAT cautions you that this Website may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws, which are based on current expectations, forecasts and assumptions that involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially.  Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts.  In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “"expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” or “potential” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical matters.  While forward-looking statements reflect AAT’s good faith beliefs, assumptions and expectations, they are not guarantees of future performance.  For a further discussion of these and other factors that could cause the AAT's future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, see the section entitled “Risk Factors” in the AAT’s annual report and other risks described in documents subsequently filed by the AAT from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  AAT disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or factors, of new information, data or methods, future events or other changes.

                     a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
