CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This report contains forward-looking statements concerning ongoing offer
discussions made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private
Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements may generally, but
not always, be identified by the use of words such as “anticipates”, “intends”,
“expects”, “believes”, or similar expressions. By their nature, forward-looking
statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend
on circumstances that will occur in the future. There can be no assurance that
actual results will not differ materially from those expressed or implied by
these forward-looking statements due to many factors, many of which are outside
the control of PMI. Any such forward-looking statements speak only as of the
date on which they are made and PMI has no obligation (and undertakes no such
obligation) to update or revise any of them, whether as a result of new
information, future events or otherwise, except for in accordance with
