11.  Forward-Looking Statements and Securities Laws

a.  Certain information on this site or on sites linked to it contains forward-looking statements as defined in U.S. securities laws. All statements that address expectations or projections about the future, including but not limited to, statements about our strategies for growth and future financial results (such as revenue), are forward-looking statements. Some of the forward-looking statements can be identified by words like “anticipates,” “believes,” “expects,” “may,” “will,” “could,” “should,” “intends,” “plans,” “estimates,” and similar expressions. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve a number of risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Because these forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions that are subject to significant business, economic, and competitive uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control or are subject to change, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, weakness in general economic conditions and levels of capital spending by clients in the industries we serve; weakness or volatility in the financial and capital markets, which may result in the postponement or cancellation of our clients’ capital projects or the inability of our clients to pay our fees; the termination or non-renewal of a major client contract or project; delays or reductions in government spending; credit risks associated with our clients; competitive market pressures; the availability and cost of qualified personnel; our level of success in attracting, training, and retaining qualified management personnel and other staff employees; changes in tax laws and other government regulations; the possibility of incurring liability for our business activities, including the activities of our temporary employees; our performance on client contracts; negative outcome of pending and future claims and litigation; and government policies, legislation, or judicial decisions adverse to our businesses. More detailed information about these and other risks and uncertainties may be found in our filings with the SEC, particularly in the “Risk Factors” section of our Form 10-K and the “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” section of our Form 10-Ks and Form 10-Qs. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. We assume no obligation to update such statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

b.  This website and the information contained in it do not constitute an offer or a solicitation of an offer for sale of any securities. None of the information contained in the site is intended to be, and will not be deemed to be, incorporated into any of our securities filings or documents.
