Certain statements contained in this press release that are not historical information contain forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and actual results may differ materially from those projected or implied. Further, certain forward-looking statements are based on assumptions of future events that may not prove to be accurate. These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology, including the terms “believe,” “estimate,” “project,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “seek,” “predict,” “contemplate,” “continue,” “possible,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “forecast,” or “assume” or, in each case, the negative of such terms and other variations or comparable terminology. The Company derives many of its forward-looking statements from its operating budgets and forecasts, which are based on many detailed assumptions. While the Company believes that its assumptions are reasonable, it is difficult to predict the impact of known factors and, of course, it is impossible to anticipate all factors that could affect actual results.
You should keep in mind that any forward-looking statement made by the Company herein, or elsewhere, speaks only as of the date on which it was made. New risks and uncertainties arise from time to time and current immaterial risks may become material in the future. It is impossible for the Company to predict these events or how they may affect the Company and its business. The Company has no obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date hereof, except as required by federal securities laws.
