Forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including, without limitation, the factors described in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference in this prospectus, including the Annual Report. Many of the forward-looking statements contained in this prospectus may be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “planned,” “will,” “may,” “intend,” “estimated,” “aim,” “on track,” “target,” “opportunity,” “tentative,” “positioning,” “designed,” “create,” “predict,” “project,” “initiatives,” “seek,” “would,” “could,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “upside,” “increases” and “potential,” among others.
