Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

We caution you that this document may contain disclosures that are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 about the Company and the Merger. Forward-looking statements include statements in which we use words such as “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” or similar expressions. These forward-looking statements are based upon information presently available to the Company’s management and are inherently subjective, uncertain and subject to change, due to any number of risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause events not to occur as expressed in the forward-looking statements in this document include, but are not limited to, uncertainties as to the timing of the Merger, including delays; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the Merger Agreement; the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted with respect to the Merger; and the failure to satisfy other closing conditions, as well as other risk factors detailed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, on March 15, 2012 under the captions “Forward Looking Statements” and “Risk Factors” and otherwise in the Company’s reports and filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Many of these factors are beyond the Company’s ability to control or predict. You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, since those statements speak only as of the date that they are made. The Company assumes no obligation to update, revise or correct any forward-looking statements after the date of this document or after the respective dates on which such statements otherwise are made, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise may be required by law.
