All statements other than statements of historical fact, are or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and projections about future events and are therefore subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results, performance or events to differ materially from the future results, performance or events expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements.  Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “is subject to”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “believes”, “targets”, “aims”, “projects”, “goal”, “objective”, “outlook”, “risks”, “seeks” or words or terms of similar substance or the negative thereof, as well as variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “should”, “would”, “might”, “probably” or “will” be taken, occur or be achieved.  Such statements are qualified in their entirety by the inherent risks and uncertainties surrounding future expectations.

Such forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect expected results and are based on certain key assumptions.  Many factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied in any forward-looking statements.  Due to such uncertainties and risks, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the specified dates of the documents included in this part of the website.  Any forward-looking statements made in the documents included in this part of the website issued or published by MURGITROYD are made as of the specified date of the relevant document containing such forward-looking statement based on the opinions and estimates of the directors of MURGITROYD.  MURGITROYD and its respective members, directors, officers, employees, advisers and any person acting on behalf of one or more of them, expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking or other statements contained in the documents included in this part of the website, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.  Neither MURGITROYD, nor its respective members, directors, officers or employees, advisers or any person acting on its behalf, provides any representation, assurance or guarantee that the occurrence of the events expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements in the documents included in this part of the website will actually occur.
