Language Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Materials in this
web site may contain information that includes or is based upon forwardlooking
statements within the meaning of the Securities Litigation Reform Act
of 1995. Forward-looking statements give our expectations or forecasts
of future events. You can identify these statements by the fact that
they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use
words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," " believe," and
other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with a discussion
of future operating or financial performance.
Any or all of our
forward-looking statements here or in other publications may turn out
to be wrong. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known
or unknown risks and uncertainties. Many such factors will be important
in determining our actual future results. Consequently, no forward-looking
statement can be guaranteed. Our actual results may vary materially,
and there are no guarantees about the performance of our stock.
We undertake no obligation
to correct or update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result
of new information, future events or otherwise. You are advised, however,
to consult any further disclosures we make on related subjects in our
reports to the SEC. In particular, you should read the discussion in
the section entitled "Cautionary Factors That May Affect Future
Results" in our most recent 10-K report to the SEC, as it may
be updated in our subsequent 10-Q and 8-K reports. That discussion
covers certain risks, uncertainties and possibly inaccurate assumptions
that could cause our actual results to differ materially from expected
and historical results. Other factors besides those listed there could
also adversely affect the Company. That discussion is provided as permitted
by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
