The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K is being furnished under Item 7.01 and shall not deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of such section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.

This Form 8-K, including the investor presentation, contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the federal securities laws. These statements are based on S&T’s expectations and involve risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those set forth in the statements.

Such forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and S&T undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement. If S&T does update any forward-looking statement, no inference should be drawn that it will make additional updates with respect to that statement or any other forward-looking statements.
