Certain statements in the press release are forward-looking statements and are prospective in nature. Forward-looking statements are not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and projections about future events, and are therefore subject to risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as "may", "should", "will", "could", "intend", "estimate", "plan", "anticipate", "expect", "believe" or "continue", or the negative thereof or similar variations. Such forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by Pala in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that the Pala believes is appropriate in the circumstances, including the timing, and the terms and benefits of the Offer. Many factors could cause the actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation, general business and economic conditions; the failure to meet certain conditions of the Offer; claims asserted against Pala; and legislative and/or regulatory changes or actions. Such forward looking statements should therefore be construed in light of such factors, and Pala is not under any obligation, and expressly disclaims any intention or obligation, to update or revise any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
