Forward Looking Statements

The statements herein regarding the Company’s plan to bring the Company into compliance with the listing standards of the NYSE American constitute "forward-looking statements" as defined by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on projections and assumptions made by management of the Company, are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict or control. For example, the Company’s ability to regain compliance with the stockholders’ equity listing standards of the NYSE American depends upon the Company's ability to raise additional capital through the issuance of additional shares of stock, which in turn depends upon market conditions that are beyond the Company’s control. Because such statements involve risks and uncertainties, the actual results and performance of the Company may differ materially from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Additional information concerning certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or suggested can be found in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, copies of which are available from the SEC or may be obtained upon request from the Company.
