In accordance with General Instruction B.2 to the Form 8-K, the information under this Item 7.01 and the press release exhibit to this Form 8-K shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section 18, nor shall such information and exhibit be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Exchange Act or the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), unless the registrant expressly states that such information and exhibit are to be considered “filed” under the Exchange Act or incorporates such information and exhibit by specific reference in an Exchange Act or Securities Act filing.
This Current Report on Form 8-K, as well as the investor materials provided by and the oral public statements made by any representative of the registrant during the conference presentation and webcast announced in this Form 8-K and the related press release, may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act and made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, as amended. Such forward-looking statements are based on information presently available to the registrant’s management and are current only as of the date made.
