The percentage of shares of common stock beneficially owned by each Reporting Person set forth on the cover pages of this Schedule 13D is calculated based on 9,100,548 shares of common stock outstanding, as reported in the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended March 31, 2021 of ACRES Commercial Realty Corp., Inc. as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 9, 2022.

Neither the filing of this Schedule 13D nor any of its contents shall be deemed to constitute an admission that any of the Reporting Persons (other than ACRES Share Holdings, LLC which directly holds the shares of common stock reported on this Schedule 13D) is the beneficial owner of the common stock referred to herein for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or for any other purpose, and such beneficial ownership is expressly disclaimed.
