ITEM 9.01         FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND EXHIBITS

 
 

 Forward Looking Statements

This document contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Generally, the words “believe,” “estimate,” “intend,” “expect,” “project,” “anticipate,” “will” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which generally are not historical in nature. However, the absence of these words or similar expressions does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. All statements that address operating performance, events or developments that we expect or anticipate will occur in the future — including statements relating to revenues growth and statements expressing general views about future operating results — are forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements include statements in connection with the ability to successfully integrate the businesses, risks related to disruption of management time from ongoing business operations due to the acquisition of Gyros, the risk that any announcements relating to the transaction could have adverse effects on the market price of Mesa Labs’ securities, the risk of any unexpected costs or expenses resulting from the transaction, the risk of any litigation relating to the transaction, the risk that the transaction and its announcement could have an adverse effect on the ability of Mesa Labs and Gyros to retain customers and retain and hire key personnel and maintain relationships with their suppliers and customers and on their operating results and businesses generally, the risk that the combined company may not operate as effectively and efficiently as expected, the risk that the combined company may be unable to achieve synergies or other anticipated benefits of the transaction or that it may take longer than expected to achieve those synergies or benefits and other important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Management believes that these forward-looking statements are reasonable as and when made. However, caution should be taken not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements because such statements speak only as of the date when made. These forward-looking statements are as of the date hereof and should not be relied upon as representing our views as of any subsequent date, and we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law. In addition, forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our historical experience and present expectations or projections. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2019, and those described from time to time in our subsequent reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
