Moreover, information concerning the subject matter of the representations, warranties and covenants may change after the date of the Purchase Agreement, which subsequent information may or may not be fully reflected in public disclosures by the Company. Accordingly, investors should read the representations and warranties in the Purchase Agreement not in isolation but only in conjunction with the other information about the Company, the Acquisition Subsidiary or Sellers that the respective companies include in reports, statements and other filings the Company makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
