Forward-Looking Statements

 

This report, the press releases and the presentation may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. The forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, our expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions, strategies, estimates and assumptions concerning events and financial trends that may affect our future results of operations or financial condition. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “contemplate,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intends,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. The forward-looking statements are based on information available as of the date of this report and our management’s current expectations, forecasts and assumptions, and involve a number of judgments, risks and uncertainties. As a result of a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties, our actual results and the timing of events may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements due to a number of factors. Applicable risks and uncertainties include those related to the possibility that any results of operations and financial condition or the Company are preliminary and subject to final audit, and the risks listed under the heading “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 29, 2021, and our subsequent filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any subsequent date. We disclaim any obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as specifically required under applicable securities laws.
