Forward-Looking Statements

This press release, together with other statements and information publicly
disseminated by the Company, contains certain forward-looking statements
within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended,
and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The
Company intends such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe
harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private

purposes of complying with these safe harbor provisions. Forward-looking
statements relate to expectations, beliefs, projections, future plans and
strategies, anticipated events or trends and similar expressions concerning
matters that are not historical facts. In some cases, you can identify
forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as
"may," "will," "should," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates,"
"believes," "estimates," "predicts" or "potential" or the negative of these
words and phrases or similar words or phrases which are predictions of or
indicate future events or trends and which do not relate solely to historical
matters. You should not rely on forward-looking statements since they involve
known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and contingencies, many of
which are beyond the Company's control, that may cause actual results to
differ significantly from those expressed in any forward-looking statement.
All forward-looking statements reflect the Company's good faith beliefs,
assumptions and expectations, but they are not guarantees of future
performance. Furthermore, except as otherwise required by federal securities
laws, the Company disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any
forward-looking statement to reflect changes in underlying assumptions or
factors, new information, data or methods, future events or other changes. For
a further discussion of these and other factors that could cause the Company's
future results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements, see
the risk factors discussed in the Company's most recent Annual Report on Form
10-K, as updated in the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q.
