SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION
Our disclosure and analysis in this press release contain some forward-looking statements. Forward-looking
statements give our current expectations or forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements
because they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use words such as "anticipate,"
"estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," and other words and terms of similar meaning.
They also appear in any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include
statements relating to future actions, future performance of our products, expenses, the outcome of any legal
proceedings, and financial results. Although we believe that we are basing our expectations and beliefs on
reasonable assumptions within the bounds of what we currently know about our business and operations, there
can be no assurance that our actual results will not differ materially from what we expect or believe. Some
of the factors that could cause our actual results to differ from our expectations or beliefs include, without
limitation: the adverse effect from a decline in the securities markets; a decline in the performance of our
products; a general downturn in the economy; changes in government policy or regulation; changes in our
ability to attract or retain key employees; and unforeseen costs and other effects related to legal proceedings
or investigations of governmental and self-regulatory organizations. We also direct your attention to any more
specific discussions of risk contained in our Form 10-K and other public filings. We are providing these
statements as permitted by the Private Litigation Reform Act of 1995. We do not undertake to update publicly
any forward-looking statements if we subsequently learn that we are unlikely to achieve our expectations or if
we receive any additional information relating to the subject matters of our forward-looking statements.
