Forward-Looking Statements

This report includes forward-looking statements within the
meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to,
statements regarding the proposed Merger and the timing of the
closing of the acquisition. The words anticipates, believes,
expects, may, plans, predicts, will, potential, goal and similar
expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements,
although not all forward-looking statements contain these
identifying words. Readers should not place undue reliance on
these forward-looking statements. AMRIs actual results may differ
materially from such forward-looking statements as a result of
numerous factors, some of which AMRI may not be able to predict
and may not be within AMRIs control. Factors that could cause
such differences include, but are not limited to, (i) the risk
that the proposed merger may not be completed in a timely manner,
or at all, which may adversely affect AMRI’s business and the
price of its common stock, (ii) the failure to satisfy all of the
closing conditions of the proposed merger, including the adoption
of the Merger Agreement by AMRI’s stockholders and the receipt
of certain governmental and regulatory approvals in foreign
jurisdictions, (iii) the occurrence of any event, change or other
circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the
Merger Agreement, (iv) the effect of the announcement or pendency
of the proposed merger on AMRI’s business, operating results,
and relationships with customers, suppliers, competitors and
others, (v) risks that the proposed Merger may disrupt AMRI’s
current plans and business operations, (vi) potential
difficulties retaining employees as a result of the proposed
Merger, (vii) risks related to the diverting of management’s
attention from AMRI’s ongoing business operations, and (viii)
the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted
against AMRI related to the Merger Agreement or the proposed
Merger. In addition, AMRI’s actual performance and results may
differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a
number of risks including, without limitation: changes in
customers spending and demand and the trends in pharmaceutical
and biotechnology companies outsourcing of manufacturing services
and research and development; AMRIs ability to provide quality
and timely services and to compete with other companies providing
similar services; AMRIs ability to comply with strict regulatory
requirements; AMRIs ability to successfully integrate past and
future acquisitions and to realize the expected benefits of each;
disruptions in AMRIs ability to source raw materials; a change in
the AMRIs relationships with its largest customers; AMRIs ability
to service its indebtedness; AMRIs ability to protect its
technology and proprietary information and the confidential
information of its customers; AMRIs ability to develop products
of commercial value under its collaboration arrangements; the
risk of patent infringement and other litigation; as well as
those risks discussed in AMRIs Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
year ended December 31, 2016 as filed with the SEC on March 16,
2017, subsequent Quarterly Reports filed with the SEC and AMRIs
other SEC filings. Numerous factors, including those noted above,
may cause actual results to differ materially from current
expectations. AMRI expressly disclaims any current intention or
obligation to update any forward-looking statement in this report
to reflect future events or changes in facts affecting the
forward-looking statements contained in this report.
