“anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,”
“intend,” “may,” “plan,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” and “will” and
variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to
identify such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking

assumptions and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, our high
level of indebtedness and our ability to make interest and principal
payments on our debt and satisfy the other covenants contained in our
debt agreements, general economic, market and competitive conditions,
our ability to improve the operating performance of our stores in
accordance with our long term strategy, the continued efforts of private
and public third-party payers to reduce prescription drug reimbursements
and encourage mail order and limit access to payor networks, the ability
to realize anticipated results from capital expenditures and cost
reduction initiatives, outcomes of legal and regulatory matters and
changes in legislation or regulations, including healthcare reform.
These and other risks, assumptions and uncertainties are described in
Item 1A (Risk Factors) of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and
