The effective Registration Statement will be sent to the Company's stockholders seeking their approval of the Merger Agreement. BEFORE MAKING ANY VOTING DECISION, THE COMPANY'S STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT (AND THE COMPANY'S PROXY STATEMENT CONTAINED THEREIN) IN ITS ENTIRETY WHEN IT BECOMES AVAILABLE AND ANY OTHER DOCUMENTS TO BE FILED WITH THE SEC IN CONNECTION WITH THE PROPOSED MERGER OR INCORPORATED BY REFERENCE IN THE REGISTRATION STATEMENT BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROPOSED MERGER AND THE PARTIES TO THE MERGER.

Forward-looking Statements

Statements in this Current Report on Form 8-K and the exhibits filed herewith that relate to future results and events are not facts and constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements are based on the Company's current expectations, estimates and assumptions and, as such, involve certain risks and uncertainties. The ability of the Company to predict results or the actual effects of its plans and strategies, or those of the combined company, is subject to inherent uncertainty. Actual results and events in future periods may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements because of a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors. All statements other than statements of historical fact, including statements containing the words "intends," "believes," "expects," "will," and similar expressions, are statements that could be deemed to be forward-looking statements. Risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to: (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement; (2) the inability to complete the proposed merger due to the failure to obtain stockholder approval for the proposed merger or the failure to satisfy other conditions to completion of the proposed merger, including that a governmental entity may prohibit, delay or refuse to grant approval for the consummation of the transaction; (3) risks related to disruption of management's attention from the Company's ongoing business operations due to the transaction; and (4) the effect of the announcement of the proposed merger on the Company's relationships with its customers, suppliers, employees, operating results and business generally. In addition, the forward-looking statements represent the Company's views as of the date as of which they were made. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and developments may cause its views to change. However, although the Company may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, it specifically disclaims any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing the Company's views as of any date subsequent to the date hereof. Additional factors that may cause results to differ materially from those described in the forward- looking statements are set forth in the Registration Statement and Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, which was filed with the SEC on March 7, 2013, under the heading "Item 1-A Risk Factors," and in prior reports on Forms 10-Q and 8-K filed with the SEC by the Company.
