Except for historical information, all of the statements, expectations and assumptions, including expectations and assumptions about the payment of future cash dividends under the annual dividend policy, contained in this news release are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Although PPD attempts to be accurate in making these forward- looking statements, it is possible that future circumstances might differ from the assumptions on which such statements are based. In addition, other important factors which could cause results to differ materially include the following: risks that we may not continue our dividend policy; economic conditions and outsourcing trends in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device industries and government-sponsored research sector; continued success in sales growth; loss of large contracts; competition within the outsourcing industry; the ability to attract and retain key personnel; dependence on collaborative relationships; rapid technological advances that make our products and services less competitive; and the other risk factors set forth from time to time in the SEC filings for PPD, copies of which are available free of charge upon request from the PPD investor relations department.
