Forward-looking StatementsThis press release contains forward-looking statements about the introduction and commercialization of Augmatrix, the size of the bone graft substitute market, the results of preclinical studies and the Canadian Augment® Rotator Cuff Graft pilot clinical trial. The words “may,” “continue,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “believe,” “project,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “optimistic” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not necessarily mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties that are difficult to predict and could cause actual results and the timing and outcome of events to differ materially. There are many important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements, including that: (i) despite the Company’s future marketing and commercialization efforts, Augmatrix may not achieve broad market acceptance; (ii) the Augment Rotator Cuff pilot clinical results may not be representative of results that may be achieved in a larger study; and (iii) the preclinical data may not be indicative of the performance of Augment or other rhPDGF-BB formulations in humans. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or suggested in any forward-looking statement are contained in BioMimetic’s recent annual and quarterly reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the SEC on November 8, 2011, which are incorporated in this press release by this reference. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release, and BioMimetic undertakes no obligation to update or revise these statements, except as may be required by law.
