ALIMERA SCIENCES, INC. (NASDAQ:ALIM) Files An 8-K Results of Operations and Financial ConditionItem 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On February 28, 2018, Alimera Sciences, Inc. (“Alimera”) issued a press release regarding its results of operations and financial condition for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017. Alimera will be hosting a conference call, as well as a live webcast on the Investor Relations section of its corporate website at www.alimerasciences.com, on March 1, 2018 at 9:00 A.M. ET to discuss its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2017 financial results and to provide regulatory and commercial updates. The full text of the press release, which includes information regarding Alimera’s use of non-GAAP financial measures, is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
Various statements to be made during the conference call and webcast are “forward-looking statements,” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, regarding, among other things, the possible increase of end user demand based on the benefits of ILUVIEN and the possible outcome, and its effects, of Alimera’s submission of the Type II variation for ILUVIEN in 17 European countries, including the ability of physicians to treat recurrent and persistent non-infectious uveitis affecting the posterior segment in Europe. Words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “contemplate,” “predict,” “project,” “target,” “likely,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” or the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and involve inherent risks and uncertainties, including factors that could delay, divert or change any of them, and could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in its forward-looking statements. Meaningful factors which could cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to, (a) whether the use by Alimera’s sales force of USER data and other real-world results to emphasize ILUVIEN’s unique benefit will in fact increase end user demand and (b) continued market acceptance of ILUVIEN in the U.S. and Europe, as well as (c) other factors discussed in the “Risk Factors” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” sections of Alimera’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016 and Alimera’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2017, which are on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and available on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. Additional factors may also be set forth in those sections of Alimera’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, to be filed with the SEC in the near future. In addition to the risks described above and in Alimera’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, Current Reports on Form 8-K and other filings with the SEC, other unknown or unpredictable factors could affect Alimera’s results. There can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by Alimera will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, Alimera. Therefore, no assurance can be given that the outcomes stated in such forward-looking statements and estimates will be achieved.
All forward-looking statements made during the conference call and webcast are expressly qualified by the cautionary statements contained or referred to herein. Alimera cautions investors not to rely too heavily on the forward-looking statements Alimera makes or that are made on its behalf. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this press release (unless another date is indicated). Alimera undertakes no obligation, and specifically declines any obligation, to publicly update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
