Forward-Looking Statements:

This news release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 as contained in Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which reflect management’s current views and estimates regarding our industry, business strategy, goals and expectations concerning our market position, future operations, margins, profitability, capital expenditures, liquidity and capital resources and other financial and operating information. You can identify these statements by the fact that they use words such as “anticipate,” “assume,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “future” and similar terms and phrases. We cannot assure you that future developments affecting us will be those that we have anticipated. Actual results may differ materially from these expectations due to risks relating to our strategy and expansion plans, the availability of suitable new store locations, risks that consumer spending may decline and that U.S., Canadian and global macroeconomic conditions may worsen, risks related to our continued retention of our senior management and other key personnel, risks relating to changes in consumer preferences and economic conditions, risks relating to our distribution center, quality or health concerns about our teas and tea-related merchandise, events that may affect our vendors, increased competition from other tea and beverage retailers, risks relating to trade restrictions, risks associated with leasing substantial amounts of space, risks relating to our pending acquisition by Starbucks, including uncertainties as to the timing of the merger, the possibility that various closing conditions for the transaction may not be satisfied or waived, and the effects of disruption from the transaction on relationships with employees, customers and business partners, and other factors that are set forth in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including risk factors in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC and available at and in all filings with the SEC made by us subsequent to the filing of the Form 10-K. Other factors that could change expected outcomes include our ability to integrate Teaopia’s operations as planned and the continued performance of its locations as planned. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or if any of our assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this news release speaks only as of the date on which we make it. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by any applicable securities laws.
