Safe Harbor Statement

This press release may contain certain "forward-looking statements" relating to the business of Imperial Holdings, Inc. and its subsidiary companies. All statements, other than statements of historical fact included herein are "forward-looking statements." These forward-looking statements are often identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "believes," "expects" or similar expressions, and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Although Imperial believes that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, they do involve assumptions, risks and uncertainties, and these expectations may prove to be incorrect. Investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this press release. Imperial's actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors, unanticipated issues that prevent or delay the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm from concluding its procedures for the year ended December 31, 2012 or that require additional efforts, procedures or review; the investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and potential adverse outcomes associated with the investigation, including payments or fines the Company may be required to make, restrictions placed upon the Company and legal proceedings that may relate to these matters; the possibility that payments due to the Company under certain policies may be delayed; the Company’s ongoing compliance with the coverage ratios and other covenants in the bridge facility; the Company's ability to repay the bridge facility and to raise other sources of capital; unanticipated issues that prevent or delay the Company from entering into the previously announced settlements of certain shareholder related matters and the amount of legal and indemnification expenses associated with those matters and the investigation into the Company's premium finance business; and the accuracy of actuarial assumptions underlying the Company’s models. All forward-looking statements attributable to Imperial or persons acting on its behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these factors. Other than as required under the securities laws, Imperial does not assume a duty to update these forward-looking statements.
