Forward-looking statements are statements that do not represent historical facts and may be based on underlying assumptions. The Company uses words and phrases such as “an agreement,” “subject to,” “would,” “expects,” “provides” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements in this report, including forward-looking statements regarding the Company’s ability to settle all claims for $3.75 million. Such forward-looking statements are based on information available to the Company as of the date of this report and involve a number of risks and uncertainties, some beyond the Company’s control, that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by these forward-looking statements, including risks and uncertainties such as: (i) the ability to finally document the settlement with the plaintiffs; (ii) the ability to secure final approval from the Court; (iii) the extent to which individual claimants opt out of the class and pursue individual claims; (iv) the ability to overcome any objections or appeals regarding the settlement; and (v) other risks described in the Company’s Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports, and future filings and reports by the Company. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company’s views as of any subsequent date, and the Company is under no obligation to, and expressly disclaims any responsibility to, update or alter its forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
