Forward-Looking Statements
This communication may include “forward-looking statements”. Forward-looking statements provide the Group’s current expectations, intentions or forecasts of future events. Forward-looking statements include statements about expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, intentions, assumptions and other statements that are not statements of historical fact. Words or phrases such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “continue”, “ongoing”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “plan”, “potential”, “predict”, “project”, “target”, “seek” or similar words or phrases, or the negatives of those words or phrases, may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not necessarily mean that a statement is not forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on potentially inaccurate assumptions that could cause future results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements.

In addition, even if future results are consistent with the forward-looking statements contained in this communication, those results may not be indicative of results in subsequent periods.
