Forward looking statements
This Microsite and the information contained in it contains certain statements which are, or may be deemed to be, forward looking statements with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of the Company and certain plans and objectives of the board of director of Offeree the Company.

Forward looking statements often use words such as “anticipate”, “target”, “expect”, “estimate”, “intend”, “plan”, “goal”, “believe”, “will”, “may”, “should”, “would”, “could” or other words of similar meaning. These statements are based on assumptions and assessments made by the board of directors of the Company in the light of their experience and their perception of historical trends, current conditions, expected future developments and other factors they believe appropriate. By their nature, forward looking statements involve risk and uncertainty and the factors described in the context of such forward looking statements could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward looking statements.
Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialise, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described in this Microsite and the information contained herein.
