Cautionary Statement Regarding the Initial Operating Report
The Company cautions investors and potential investors not to place undue reliance upon the information contained in the Initial Operating Report, which was not prepared for the purpose of providing the basis for an investment decision relating to any of the securities of the Company. The Initial Operating Report is limited in scope and has been prepared solely for the purpose of complying with requirements of the Bankruptcy Court. The Initial Operating Report was not reviewed by independent accountants, is in a format prescribed by applicable bankruptcy laws, and is subject to future adjustment. The Initial Operating Report also contains information for periods which are shorter or otherwise different from those required in the Companys reports pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and such information might not be indicative of the Companys financial condition or operating results for a period that would be reflected in the Companys financial statements or in its reports pursuant to the Exchange Act. Information set forth in the Initial Operating Report should not be viewed as indicative of future results.
Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K and Exhibit 99.1 hereto may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are those involving future events and future results that are based on current expectations, estimates, forecasts, and projections as well as the current beliefs and assumptions of the Companys management. Words such as guidance, outlook, believes, expects, appears, may, will, should, intend, target, projects, estimates, plans, forecast, is likely to, anticipates, or the negative thereof or comparable terminology, are intended to identify such forward looking statements. Any statement that is not a historical fact and other estimates, projections, future trends and the outcome of events that have not yet occurred referenced in this press release, is a forward-looking statement. Forward-looking statements are only predictions and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, factors discussed under the section entitled Risk Factors in the Companys reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the ability to conclude the transaction with Lowes or another bidder in the Court-supervised auction process under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code and the challenges and risks associated with operating the business under Chapter 11 protection. Many of such factors relate to events and circumstances that are beyond the Companys control. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. The Company does not assume any obligation to update the information contained in this press release.
