  • Forward Looking Statements This presentation contains “forward-looking” statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. If the risks or uncertainties ever materialize or the assumptions prove incorrect, our results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. All statements other than statements of historical fact could be deemed forward-looking, including, but not limited to, any projections of financial information; any statements about historical results that may suggest trends for our business and results of operations; any statements of the plans, strategies and objectives of management for future operations; any statements of expectation or belief regarding future events, technology developments, or enforceability of our intellectual property rights; and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. These statements are based on estimates and information available to us at the time of this presentation and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially from our current expectations as a result of many factors, including but not limited to: quarterly fluctuations in our business and results of operations; our ability to address market needs and sell our applications and services successfully; and the effects of competition. These and other risks and uncertainties associated with our business are described on Form S-1/A filed with the SEC on December 19, 2008, and available via www.sec.gov. We assume no obligation and do not intend to update these forward-looking statements. © Copyright NetSuite Inc., All Rights Reserved. 3 View slide
