Statements including words such as “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “forecast,” “intend,” “view,” “hope,” “could,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “seek,” “target” or similar expressions should also be considered forward-looking statements. Because these statements reflect current views, expectations and beliefs concerning future events, these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties and assumptions as to future events that may not prove to be accurate. Pernix provides no assurances regarding its future performance, ability to realize future benefits, cost savings and synergies of the completed merger or future opportunities for the combined company. The following factors, among others, could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements: the challenges and costs of integrating, restructuring and achieving anticipated cost savings and synergies and other economic, business, competitive, and/or regulatory factors affecting the business of Pernix generally. In addition to these factors, investors should note the other factors described under the caption "Risk Factors" in Pernix’s Form 10-K, Form 10-Q and Form 8-K filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission and as otherwise enumerated herein or therein.
