All of these statements are made on the basis of estimates, assumptions and conjectures which the company and the Board of Directors believe to be reasonable at this time. However, such statements can still turn out to be incorrect or in error, which can lead to the business development or the profitability of the company developing differently than would have been assumed on the basis of these statements. Neither the company nor the Board of Directors undertakes any obligation to update or bring up to date such statements or the estimates, assumptions, suppositions and forecasts underlying such statements. Investors should also note that past trends are no guarantee of future developments.

Failure to comply with these restrictions may constitute a violation of the securities laws of those countries. The Company accepts no responsibility for any breach of these restrictions by any third party, whether or not they are prospective buyers.

Accordingly, the new registered shares may not be sold, directly or indirectly, in any other country or jurisdiction and the information provided on this website and any other documents and information relating to the new registered shares may not be sold in any other country or jurisdiction distributed or published unless in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations of such country or jurisdiction.

The public offering of the new registered shares and/or subscription rights to new registered shares is exclusively a public offering in Switzerland and under Swiss law; it does not constitute an offer or a solicitation to purchase or to submit an offer to purchase new registered shares and/or subscription rights to new registered shares in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or such a solicitation would not be legally permissible. Other than in Switzerland, the company and the Board of Directors have not taken any precautions in any other legal system that are necessary for a public offer.
