This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the commercialization of JUXTAPID in the U.S.; the potential for JUXTAPID as a treatment for HoFH; forecasts as to the number of patients expected to be on therapy at the end of 2013; the potential and possible timeline and process of approval of JUXTAPID in the E.U.; and expectations as to future financial results, including operating expenses and net product sales. These forward-looking statements are neither promises nor guarantees of future performance, and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated in these forward-looking statements. In particular, the risks and uncertainties include, among other factors: the risk that market acceptance of JUXTAPID may be lower than expected; the risk that prescriptions for JUXTAPID may not result in shipments of product; the risk that the actual number of patients with HoFH may be lower than our estimates; the risk that the restrictions imposed by the regulatory authorities or the side effect profile or the impact of competitive products may limit the potential of JUXTAPID; the risk that payers impose restrictions that hinder reimbursement; the risk that regulatory authorities in the E.U. or other countries outside the U.S. may not be satisfied with the efficacy or safety profile of JUXTAPID or our proposed risk management plan; the risk that we do not receive approval of JUXTAPID in the E.U. or other countries outside the U.S. on a timely basis, or at all or that regulatory authorities impose significant restrictions on approval; the risk that we do not obtain requisite pricing approvals outside the U.S; the risk that we are not able to generate the level of named patient sales in countries outside the U.S. that we expect; the risk that technical hurdles may delay initiation of future clinical trials; the risk of unexpected results in use of our commercial product or during our additional nonclinical or clinical development work with JUXTAPID; the risk of unexpected manufacturing issues affecting future supply; the risk that any of the foregoing may cause product sales revenue to be lower than we expect, or that we may incur unanticipated expenses in connection with our activities; and the other risks inherent in commercialization, drug development and the regulatory approval process.
