    • 1. Forward Looking Statements This presentation contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“the ‘34 Act”). Forward-looking statements include statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, and are identified by words such as “believe”, “expect”, “plan”, “will”, “may”, “aim”, “target” and other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements, which reflect management’s current goals, objectives and expectations, are necessarily estimates based on the best judgment of the Company’s senior management. These statements relate to, among other things, elements needed to remain an industry leader, management’s vision for success, competitive marketplace advantages, strategic priorities and uses of cash flow. Achievement of the expressed goals, expectations and objectives is subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those goals, objectives or expectations.
