Forward Looking Statements

Some of the statements made in this Form 10-Q constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are subject to the safe harbor provisions of the reform act. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of the terminology such as may, will, expect, anticipate, intend, believe, estimate, should or continue or the negatives of these terms or other variations on these words or comparable terminology. To the extent that this report contains forward-looking statements regarding the financial condition, operating results, business prospects or any other aspect of our business, you should be aware that our actual financial condition, operating results and business performance may differ materially from that projected or estimated by us in the forward-looking statements. We have attempted to identify, in context, some of the factors that we currently believe may cause actual future experience and results to differ from their current expectations. These differences may be caused by a variety of factors including, but not limited to, adverse economic conditions, intense competition, including entry of new competitors, inability to obtain sufficient financing to support our operations, progress in research and development activities, variations in costs, fluctuations in foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar in countries where we source products, adverse federal, state and local government regulation, unexpected costs, lower sales and net income (or higher net losses, than forecasted), price increases for equipment, inability to raise prices, failure to obtain new customers, the possible fluctuation and volatility of our operating results and financial condition, inability to carry out marketing and sales plans, loss of key executives and other specific risks that may be alluded to in this report.

The following discussion and analysis of financial condition, results of operations, liquidity and capital resources should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report, which have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern, and in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. As discussed in Note 1 to the condensed consolidated financial statements, our recurring net losses and inability to generate sufficient cash flows to meet our obligations and sustain our operations raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans concerning these matters are also discussed in Note 1 to the condensed consolidated financial statements. This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including information with respect to our plans, intentions and strategies for our businesses. Our actual results may differ materially from those estimated or projected in any of these forward-looking statements.
