Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on
these forward-looking statements. Some of the factors that could

developing any HAE drug candidate may take longer or may be more
expensive than planned; ongoing and future preclinical and
clinical development of HAE second generation drug candidates
(including APeX-1) may not have positive results; that BioCryst
may not be able to enroll the required number of subjects in
planned clinical trials of product candidates; that the Company
may not advance human clinical trials with product candidates as
expected; that the FDA may require additional studies beyond the
studies planned for product candidates, or may not provide
regulatory clearances which may result in delay of planned
clinical trials, or may impose a clinical hold with respect to
such product candidate, or withhold market approval for product
candidates; that BioCryst may not receive additional government
funding to further support the development of galidesivir; that
galidesivir development may not be successful; that BARDA and/or
NIAID may further condition, reduce or eliminate future funding;
that revenue from peramivir is unpredictable and
commercialization of peramivir may never result in significant
revenue for the Company; that the Company may not be able to
continue development of ongoing and future development programs;
that such development programs may never result in future
products; that actual financial results may not be consistent
with expectations, including that 2017 operating expenses and
cash usage may not be within managements expected ranges. Please
