To the extent that statements contained in this press release are not descriptions of historical facts regarding Unified Signal, they are forward-looking statements reflecting the current beliefs and expectations of management made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “believe,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “objectives” and similar expressions (as well as other words or expressions referencing future events, conditions or circumstances) are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this release involve substantial risks and uncertainties that could cause the development and monetization of our mobile games, future results, performance or achievements to differ significantly from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Unified Signal undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements. The quoting and trading of the company’s common stock on the OTC Bulletin Board and the OTC Market Group’s OTC Link quotation system is often thin and characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices, due to many factors that may have little to do with the company’s operations or business prospects. As a result, there may be volatility in the market price of the shares of the company’s common stock for reasons unrelated to operating performance. Moreover, the OTC Bulletin Board and the OTC Market Group’s OTC Link quotation system are not stock exchanges, and trading of securities on them is often more sporadic than trading of securities listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market or another securities exchange. Accordingly, stockholders may have difficulty reselling any of their shares. For a further description of the risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed in these forward-looking statements, as well as risks relating to the business of the company in general, see Unified Signal’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available through http://www.sec.gov.
