Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements in this communication, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Company’s compliance with the NPA and any enforcement action or investigation against the Company, and management’s beliefs, expectations or opinions, are forward-looking statements, and as such, the Company desires to take advantage of the “safe harbor” which is afforded such statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are those that predict or describe future events or trends and that do not relate solely to historical matters. Forward-looking statements can generally be identified as statements containing the words “believe,” “expect,” “may,” “could,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “estimate,” “project,” “will,” “plan,” “assume,” “seek to” or other similar expressions, or the negative of these expressions, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. In addition, actual results may differ materially from those discussed in forward-looking statements as a result of factors, risks and uncertainties over many of which the Company has no control.
These factors, risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to,
uncertainties as to the Company’s compliance with foreign and U.S. laws
and regulations, including the FCPAý, and other factors discussed from
time to time in the Company’s reports filed with the
Forward-looking statements reflect the views and assumptions of management as of the date of this communication with respect to future events. The Company does not undertake, and hereby disclaims, any obligation, unless required to do so by applicable securities laws, to update any forward-looking statements as a result of new information, future events or other factors. The inclusion of any statement in this communication does not constitute an admission by the Company or any other person that the events or circumstances described in such statement are material.
