Forward-Looking Statements

The statements contained or referenced in this report include certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the relevant securities laws, including the expected closing of the offering of the Notes and the use of proceeds therefrom. These forward-looking statements are generally identified by words or phrases, such as “anticipate,” “are going to,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “foresee,” “forecast,” “will,” “may,” “should,” “outlook,” “continue,” “temporary,” “target,” “aim,” “potential,” “goal” and similar words or phrases. These statements are based on certain assumptions and estimates that the Company considers reasonable, but are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from such statements, including, without limitation, (i) the Company’s ability to consummate the offering of the Notes on a timely basis and on terms commercially acceptable to the Company and (ii) the other potential risks and uncertainties that could affect the Company’s business and financial results included under the heading “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in the Company’s latest Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2023, its subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and other documents it has filed and may file with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.
