Statements in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements, including those relating to Endocare's plans for regaining compliance with the NASDAQ rules, that involve risks and uncertainties. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those discussed in "Risk Factors" in Endocare's Registration Statement on Form S-4 relating to the merger, Forms 10-K, Forms 10-Q and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Such risk factors include, but are not limited to, the following items: uncertainty relating to HealthTronics' proposal to acquire Endocare and the effects of such proposal; failure to receive stockholder approval of the Galil merger or concurrent financing; the timing and receipt of regulatory approvals; the possibility that the anticipated benefits from the Galil merger cannot be fully realized, if at all, or may take longer to realize than expected; the possibility that costs or difficulties related to the integration of Galil's operations into Endocare will be greater than expected; the ability of the combined company to retain and hire key personnel; Endocare has a limited operating history with significant losses and losses may continue in the future; Endocare may require additional financing to sustain its operations and without it Endocare may not be able to continue operations; Endocare's ability to extend the maturity on its line of credit; Endocare's business may be materially and adversely impacted by the loss of Endocare's largest customer, which is an affiliate of HealthTronics, or the reduction, delay or cancellation of orders from this customer or if this customer delays payment or fails to make payment; Endocare may be required to make state and local tax payments that exceed Endocare's settlement estimates; uncertainty regarding the ability to convince health care professionals and third party payers of the medical and economic benefits of Endocare's products; uncertainty relating to third party reimbursement; the risk that intense competition and rapid technological and industry change may make it more difficult for Endocare to achieve significant market penetration; and uncertainty regarding the ability to secure and protect intellectual property rights relating to Endocare's technology. The actual results that Endocare achieves may differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to such risks and uncertainties. There can be no assurance that the proposed merger and financing will in fact be consummated, or that Endocare's board of directors will determine that HealthTronics' proposal constitutes a "Superior Proposal" under its merger agreement with Galil or, if it makes such a determination, that a transaction with HealthTronics will be consummated. Except as otherwise required by law, the Company undertakes no obligation to revise, or update publicly, any forward-looking statements for any reason.
