Forward Looking Statements

This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of
the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The Company generally
identifies forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,”
“should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “could,” “intends,” “target,”
“projects,” “contemplates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or
“continue” or the negative of these terms or other similar words. These
statements are only predictions. The Company has based these forward-looking
statements largely on its then-current expectations and projections about future
events and financial trends as well as the beliefs and assumptions of
management. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and
uncertainties, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond
the Company’s control. The Company’s actual results could differ materially from
those stated or implied in forward-looking statements due to a number of
factors, including but not limited to: (i) risks associated with the Company’s
ability to obtain the stockholder approval required to consummate the proposed
Merger and the timing of the closing of the proposed Merger, including the risks
that a condition to closing would not be satisfied within the expected timeframe
or at all or that the closing of the proposed Merger will not occur; (ii) the
outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against the parties and
others related to the Merger Agreement; (iii) the occurrence of any event,
change or other circumstance or condition that could give rise to the
termination of the Merger Agreement; (iv) unanticipated difficulties or
expenditures relating to the proposed Merger, the response of business partners
and competitors to the announcement of the proposed Merger, and/or potential
difficulties in employee retention as a result of the announcement and pendency
of the proposed Merger; (v) the response of Company stockholders to the Merger
Agreement; and (vi) those risks detailed in the Company’s most recent Annual
Report on Form 10-K (as amended by the Amendment No. 1 to such Form 10-K) and
subsequent reports filed with the SEC, as well as other documents that may be
filed by the Company from time to time with the SEC. Accordingly, you should not
rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The
Company cannot assure you that the events and circumstances reflected in the
forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur, and actual results could
differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. The
forward-looking statements made in this communications relate only to events as
of the date on which the statements are made. Except as required by applicable
law or regulation, the Company undertakes no obligation to update any
forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on
which the statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated
events.
