CCG intends such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and includes this statement for purposes of complying with these safe harbor provisions. Forward-looking statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning matters that are not historical facts. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “intends,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts” or “potential” or the negative of these words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical matters. You should not rely on forward-looking statements since they involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and contingencies, many of which are beyond CCG’s control that may cause actual results to differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statement, including risks and uncertainties related to the proposed transaction (including but not limited to (i) the occurrence of any effect, event, development, or change that could give rise to the termination of the purchase and sale agreement, (ii) the failure to complete the proposed transaction, and (iii) the failure of any party to satisfy the conditions to the closing of the transaction. All forward-looking statements reflect CCG’s good faith beliefs, assumptions and expectations, but they are not guarantees of future performance. Furthermore, except as otherwise required by federal securities laws, CCG disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or factors, new information, data or methods, future events or other changes. For a further discussion of these and other factors that could cause CCG’s future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, see the risk factors discussed in CCG’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and in the prospectus supplement relating to the offering referred to in this press release.
