By its own admission, Kerrisdale Capital does not stand by the accuracy, timeliness, or completeness of its misleading report. At the time of the misleading report's publication, Kerrisdale Capital declared that it held short positions and put options on Lightwave Logic's common stock. The misleading report is not an independent and disinterested report, its primary purpose is to devalue the Company's stock price in order for the short selling firm to profit at the expense of Lightwave Logic's shareholders.

Lightwave Logic stands by all past statements contained in its press releases, investor presentations and filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as it continues on its path to revenue. Lightwave Logic continues to expand its activities and operations with the objective of commercializing its electro-optic polymer technology, and it continues to focus on creating value for its shareholders.
