Statements such as those regarding the anticipated development of the companies’ business, and the intent, belief or current expectations of the companies, their directors, or their officers, are “forward looking” statements (as such term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). Forward-looking statements are typically identified by words or phrases such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “target,” “plans,” “may increase,” “may fluctuate,” “may result in,” “are projected,” and similar expressions. Because such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.
