Federal Income Tax Considerations

Welltower Inc. (the “Company”) is filing as Exhibit 99.1 (incorporated by reference herein) a discussion of certain U.S. federal income tax considerations relating to the Company’s qualification and taxation as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, and federal income taxation of holders of the Company’s common stock, depositary shares, debt securities, and warrants. The description contained in Exhibit 99.1 to this Form 8-K replaces and supersedes prior descriptions of the U.S. federal income tax treatment of the Company and its security holders to the extent that they are inconsistent with the description contained in this Form 8-K.

Certain statements contain in Exhibit 99.1 constitute “forward-looking statements,” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. When we use words such as “may,” “will,” “intend,” “should,” “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “estimate” or similar expressions that do not relate solely to historical matters, we are making forward-looking statements. In particular, these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those relating to our opportunities to acquire, develop or sell properties; our ability to close our anticipated acquisitions, investments or dispositions on currently anticipated terms, or within currently anticipated timeframes; the expected performance of our operators/tenants and properties; our expected occupancy rates; our ability to declare and to make distributions to stockholders; our investment and financing opportunities and plans; our continued qualification as a REIT; and our ability to access capital markets or other sources of funds. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that may cause our actual results to differ materially from our expectations discussed in the forward-looking statements. This may be a result of various factors, including, but not limited to:

· key management personnel recruitment and retention; and

· the risks described under “Item 1A — Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017.

The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether because of new information, future events, or otherwise.
