the ability to complete the proposed merger, and other statements containing
the words “estimates,” “believes,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “expects,” “will,”
and similar expressions, other than historical facts, constitute
forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Factors or risks that
could cause our actual results to differ materially from the results we
anticipate include, but are not limited to: (1) the occurrence of any event,
change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the
merger agreement; (2) the inability to complete the proposed merger due to the
failure to obtain stockholder approval for the proposed merger or the failure
to satisfy other conditions to completion of the proposed merger, including
that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay or refuse to grant approval for
the consummation of the transaction; (3) the failure to obtain the necessary
financing arrangements set forth in the debt and equity commitment letters
delivered pursuant to the merger agreement; (4) risks related to disruption of
management’s attention from the Company’s ongoing business operations due to
the transaction; and (5) the effect of the announcement of the proposed merger
on the Company’s relationships with its customers, operating results and
business generally.

Actual results may differ materially from those indicated by such
forward-looking statements. In addition, the forward-looking statements
included in these materials represent our views as of the date hereof. We
anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to
change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements
at some point in the future, we specifically disclaim any obligation to do so.
These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing our
views as of any date subsequent to the date hereof. Additional factors that
