The Prospectus delivered in connection with this offering describes some of these factors under the heading “Risk Factors.” Although we believe that our expectations are based on reasonable assumptions, actual results may differ materially from those in the forward looking statements as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to, those described under the heading “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in the Prospectus.
