The Company is currently in the process of finalizing its full financial results for the quarter that ended September 30, 2023, and applying its standard closing procedures, therefore the estimated revenue presented above reflects various assumptions and estimates based only upon information available to the Company as of the date hereof. As a result, while the Company considers the preliminary revenue figure to be a reasonable estimate, it remains subject to change, and actual results may differ due to developments or other information that may arise between now and the time the full financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, are finalized.
This press release includes "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1996.
