SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

Our disclosure and analysis in this press release contain some forward-looking
statements. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations or
forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements because 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. They also appear in any
discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these
include statements relating to future actions, future performance of our
products, expenses, the outcome of any legal proceedings, and financial
results. Although we believe that we are basing our expectations and beliefs
on reasonable assumptions within the bounds of what we currently know about
our business and operations, there can be no assurance that our actual results
will not differ materially from what we expect or believe. Some of the factors
that could cause our actual results to differ from our expectations or beliefs
include, without limitation: the adverse effect from a decline in the
securities markets; a decline in the performance of our products; a general
downturn in the economy; changes in government policy or regulation; changes
in our ability to attract or retain key employees; and unforeseen costs and
other effects related to legal proceedings or investigations of governmental
and self-regulatory organizations. We also direct your attention to any more
specific discussions of risk contained in our Form 10-K and other public
filings. We are providing these statements as permitted by the Private
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We do not undertake to update publicly any
forward-looking statements if we subsequently learn that we are unlikely to
achieve our expectations or if we receive any additional information relating
to the subject matters of our forward-looking statements.
