Safe Harbor Statement
This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, including statements regarding the expected impacts and results of our executive officer search and transition and independent director search, statements about our ability to identify and attract a qualified new chief executive officer and independent director and such individuals’ performance, statements about our current expectations and projections of future financial performance, statements about our short-term and long-term goals and our ability to achieve them, statements under the section labelled “Company Reaffirms Guidance”, and other statements regarding our strategies, market and product positions, performance, and results. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. There are a significant number of factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from statements made in this press release, including: failure to achieve our revenue and profitability objectives; failure to successfully identify or attract a qualified new chief executive officer or independent director; failure to successfully manage transitions to business models and markets, including the introduction of additional ratable revenue streams and our continuing efforts to attract customers to our cloud-based offerings and expenses related to the transition of our business model; difficulty in predicting revenue from new businesses and the potential impact on our financial results from changes in our business models; general market, political, economic and business conditions; any imposition of new tariffs or trade barriers; the impact of non-cash charges on our financial results; fluctuation in foreign currency exchange rates; the success of our foreign currency hedging program; failure to control our expenses; our performance in particular geographies, including emerging economies; the ability of governments around the world to meet their financial and debt obligations, and finance infrastructure projects; weak or negative growth in the industries we serve; slowing momentum in subscription billings or revenues; difficulties encountered in integrating new or acquired businesses and technologies; the inability to identify and realize the anticipated benefits of acquisitions; the financial and business condition of our reseller and distribution channels; dependence on and the timing of large transactions; failure to achieve sufficient sell-through in our channels for new or existing products; pricing pressure; unexpected fluctuations in our tax rate; the timing and degree of expected investments in growth and efficiency opportunities; changes in the timing of product releases and retirements; and any unanticipated accounting charges.  In addition, with respect to the affirmation of our financial guidance for the completed fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 and full fiscal year 2017, changes could result from the fact that we have not completed an accounting close for such periods and that our projected results have not undergone an audit by our independent accountants.  As a result, audit adjustments or the timing of revenue recognition could materially impact these projected results.
