This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities. The notes have not been, and will not be, registered under the Securities Act or the securities laws of any other jurisdiction and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. The notes are being offered only to qualified institutional buyers pursuant to Rule 144A under the Securities Act.
Certain statements contained herein may constitute "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts and are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company's industry, management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by management, many of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and beyond our control. Accordingly, readers are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict including, without limitation, whether or not the Company will offer the notes or consummate the offering, the anticipated terms of the notes and the offering, the anticipated use of proceeds of the offering, whether and in what amount the Company may repurchase shares of its common stock, whether the cash convertible note hedge transaction and the warrant transactions (including the additional cash convertible note hedge transactions and the additional warrant transactions that the Company may enter into if the initial purchasers exercise their option to purchase additional notes) will become effective, and such other factors as are set forth in the risk factors detailed from time to time in the Company’s periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including, without limitation, the risk factors detailed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. Since such statements involve risks and uncertainties, the actual results and performance of the Company may turn out to be materially different from the results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. Unless otherwise required by law, the Company also disclaims any obligation to update its view of any such risks or uncertainties or to announce publicly the result of any revisions to the forward-looking statements made herein. Readers should carefully review the risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company's reports with the SEC, including, without limitation, those detailed under the heading "Risk Factors" in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2011, and in other reports or documents the Company files with, or furnishes to, the SEC from time to time. This information should also be read in conjunction with the Company's Consolidated Financial Statements and the Notes thereto contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year-ended December 31, 2011, and in other reports or documents the Company files with, or furnishes to, the SEC from time to time.
