Potential risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the closing of the agreement for the acquisition of the Shanghai property, SouFun's limited operating history, the current global financial and credit markets crisis and its potential impact on the Chinese economy, measures taken or to be taken by the Chinese government to control real estate growth and prices and other events which could occur in the future, challenges in China's real estate market, the impact of competitive market conditions for SouFun's services and its ability to maintain and increase its leadership in China's home related internet sector, the uncertain regulatory landscape in China, fluctuations in SouFun's quarterly operating results, its ability to continue to expand in local markets, its reliance on online advertising sales and listing services for revenues, any failure to successfully develop and expand its content, service offerings and features, including the success of new features to meet evolving market needs, and the technologies that support them, and, should SouFun in the future makes acquisitions, any failure to successfully integrate acquired businesses.
Further information regarding these and other risks and uncertainties is included in SouFun's annual report on form 20-F and other documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. SouFun does not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statements in this release and elsewhere, which apply only as of the date of this press release.
