We believe that it is important to communicate future expectations to investors. However, there may be events in the future that we are not able to accurately predict or control. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to, the uncertainties associated with our limited operating history, product development, the regulatory approval process of the FDA, the market for our product candidates, the success of BXCL501 and BXCL701, the risks associated with dependence upon key personnel and the need for additional financing. Except as required by law, we do not assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements as circumstances change.
