Certain statements in this Annual Report relating to a future period of time (including inter alia concerning our future business plans or growth prospects) are forwardlooking statements intended to qualify for the 'safe harbour' under applicable securities laws including the US Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in such forward-looking statements.
