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 injection is unpredictable and 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 management’s

periodically with the Securities and Exchange Commission,
specifically BioCrysts most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K,
