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.

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.
