Because such forward-looking statements contain risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include, but are not limited to: the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement and the possibility that Emageon could be required to pay a $3.0 million termination fee in connection therewith; the outcome of any legal proceedings that have been or may be instituted against Emageon and others related to the merger agreement; the failure to satisfy any conditions to the completion of the merger; the failure to obtain the necessary financing set forth in the debenture purchase agreement with SIBL to be received in connection with the merger; risks that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations and the potential difficulties in employee retention as a result of the merger; risks regarding a loss of or decrease in purchases by Emageon's major customers as a result of the merger; the ability to recognize the benefits of the merger; and the amount of the costs, fees, expenses and charges related to the merger and the actual terms of the financing that will be obtained for the merger.
