Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements in this communication regarding the proposed restructuring of the Company, including the formation of 180 Degree Capital Corp ("180") and HALE.life Corp. ("HALE"), including statements regarding the expected timetable for completing the referenced transactions, benefits of the transaction, statements regarding 180 or HALE, their respective investment plans, policies and expected results and any other statements regarding the Company's, 180's or HALE's expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, financial conditions, assumptions or future events or performance that are not historical facts are “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. These statements are often, but not always, made through the use of words or phrases such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “planned,” “will,” “may,” “intend,” “estimated,” “aim,” “target,” “opportunity,” “tentative,” “positioning,” “designed,” “create,” “seek,” “would,” “could”, “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “upside,” “increases,” and “potential,” and similar expressions. All such forward-looking statements involve estimates and assumptions that are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results expressed in the statements. Among the key factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements are the following: the timing to consummate the proposed transactions; the risk that a condition to closing the proposed transactions may not be satisfied; the failure to receive, on a timely basis or otherwise, the required approvals by the Company's stockholders, governmental or regulatory agencies and third parties; each of 180's and HALE's respective ability to achieve the synergies, recurring income and value creation contemplated by the proposed transactions; uncertainty as to the prospects, distributions and performance of each of 180 and HALE as separate entities; the ability of each company to retain its senior executives and maintain relationships with business partners following consummation of the restructuring; the impact of legislative, regulatory and competitive changes; and the diversion of management time on transaction-related issues. There can be no assurance that the restructuring and the transactions contemplated thereby will in fact be consummated. Additional information concerning these and other factors can be found in the Company’s registration statement and proxy statement/prospectus (when filed) as well as in the Company's other filings with the SEC. The Company assumes no obligation to, and expressly disclaim any duty to, update any forward-looking statements contained in this document or to conform prior statements to actual results or revised expectations except as required by law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements that speak only as of the date hereof.
