1.6. Forward Looking Statements
The Sites may include “forward-looking statements” intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Investors can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. These statements contain words such as “expect,” “reaffirm,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “believe,” “estimate,” “may,” “will,” “predict,” “project,” “might,” “intend,” “potential,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “estimate,” “seek,” “continue,” “pursue,” or “our future success depends,” or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology, are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. In particular, they include statements relating to, among other things, future actions, strategies, future performance, and future financial results of AngioDynamics. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events.
Investors are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results and involve risks and uncertainties that cannot be predicted or quantified and, consequently, the actual performance or results of AngioDynamics may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the factors described from time to time our reports filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including our most recently filed Form 10-K, financial community and rating agency perceptions of AngioDynamics; the effects of economic, credit and capital market conditions on the economy in general, and on medical device companies in particular; domestic and foreign health care reforms and governmental laws and regulations; third-party relations and approvals, technological advances and patents attained by competitors; and challenges inherent in new product development, including obtaining regulatory approvals. In addition to the matters described above, our ability to develop products, future actions by the United States Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) or other regulatory agencies, results of pending or future clinical trials, the outcome of pending patent litigation, overall economic conditions, general market conditions, market acceptance, foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, and the effects on pricing from group purchasing organizations and competition and our ability to integrate purchased businesses, may affect the actual results achieved by AngioDynamics.
Any forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and, as such, speak only as of the date made. AngioDynamics disclaims any obligation to update the forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date stated.
