In this context, forward-looking statements often address our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," or "will." Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain.

For a description of some of the risks and uncertainties that may affect our future results, you should see the risk factors described from time to time in the reports we file with the
