This Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements reflect management's current knowledge, assumptions, judgment and expectations regarding future performance or events. Although management believes that the expectations reflected in such statements are reasonable, they give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct and you should be aware that actual events or results may differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements. Words such as “will,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “potential,” “possible,” “goals,” “accelerate,” “continue,” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Company’s request for and receipt of an Emergency Use Authorization from U.S. Food and Drug Administration for lenzilumab in COVID-19; the Company’s request and receipt of Marketing Authorization or Conditional Marketing Authorization for lenzilumab in COVID-19 by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency; and the Company’s other plans relating to lenzilumab as a result of the release of the topline results. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties including, but not limited to, the risks inherent in the Company’s lack of profitability and need for additional capital to grow its business; the Company’s dependence on partners to further the development of its product candidates; the uncertainties inherent in the development, attainment of the requisite regulatory authorization and approvals and launch of any new pharmaceutical product; the outcome of pending or future litigation; and the various risks and uncertainties described in the “Risk Factors” sections and elsewhere in the Humanigen's periodic and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

All forward-looking statements are expressly qualified in their entirety by this cautionary notice. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this filing.
