This press release contains "forward-looking statements," as that term is defined under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (PSLRA), which statements may be identified by words such as "expects," "plans," "projects," "will," "may," "anticipates," "believes," "should," "intends," "estimates," and other words of similar meaning, including statements regarding expected financial performance, continued revenue growth and our ability to build a profitable business, whether we have sufficient liquidity to fund our research and development and operations, our product development effort and the expected benefits of our products, including whether the phase 3 clinical trials for RAYALDEE, hGH-CTP, and rolapitant will be completed on a timely basis or at all and whether the data will support approval, validation and/or reimbursement for our products, the expected timing for launch of our products in development, including RAYALDEE and hGH-CTP, the expected timing of our clinical trials, enrollment in clinical trials, and disclosure of results for the trials, our ability to market and sell any of our products in development, including RAYALDEE, the 4Kscore, and hGH-CTP, our ability to launch sales of the 4Kscore Test in Spain and through our other subsidiaries, the timing for submission of an NDA by us for RAYALDEE and by TESARO for rolapitant, whether TESARO will complete a dose study for its IV formulation and the timing thereof, whether the 4Kscore will provide substantial benefits to patients and doctors by informing them of the risk of a patient having a high-grade cancer and clarify the decision making process, whether the 4Kscore will reduce unnecessary biopsies, whether the Irish operation will manage, oversee and contribute to the manufacturing and sale of the 4Kscore, RAYALDEE, and other products in development, as well as other non-historical statements about our expectations, beliefs or intentions regarding our business, technologies and products, financial condition, strategies or prospects. Many factors could cause our actual activities or results to differ materially from the activities and results anticipated in forward-looking statements.

In addition, forward-looking statements may also be adversely affected by general market factors, competitive product development, product availability, federal and state regulations and legislation, the regulatory process for new products and indications, manufacturing issues that may arise, patent positions and litigation, among other factors.
