Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Section 21E of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements provide the
Company's current expectations or forecasts of future events. Forward-looking
statements include statements about the Company's expectations, beliefs,
intentions, plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events, performance
and underlying assumptions and other statements that are not historical facts,
including with regard to the Company's securities offering or the anticipated
use of proceeds. You can identify forward-looking statements by their use of
forward-looking words, such as "may," "will," "anticipate," "expect,"
"believe," "intend," "plan," "should," "seek" or comparable terms, or the
negative use of those words, but the absence of these words does not
necessarily mean that a statement is not forward-looking. The forward-looking
statements are based on the Company's beliefs, assumptions and expectations of
its future performance, taking into account all information currently
available to it. Forward-looking statements are not predictions of future
events. These beliefs, assumptions and expectations can change as a result of
many possible events or factors, not all of which are known to the Company.
Some of these factors are described under the headings "Risk Factors" and
"Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations" as included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 and its other periodic reports filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are accessible on the Securities
and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov. These factors should not be
construed as exhaustive and should be read in conjunction with other
cautionary statements that are included in the filings. These and other risks,
uncertainties and factors could cause the Company's actual results to differ
materially from those included in any forward-looking statements it makes. Any
forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which it is made. New
risks and uncertainties arise over time, and it is not possible for the
Company to predict those events or how they may affect it. Except as required
by law, the Company is not obligated to, and does not intend to, update or
revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information,
future events or otherwise. You should not place undue reliance on these
forward-looking statements, as events described or implied in such statements
may not occur.
