This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company’s representatives may also make forward-looking statements orally from time to time. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.  

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties.  A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Such risk factors include, but are not limited to, the following:  

  • risks associated with effects of national and regional economic conditions;
  • the Company’s ability to attract new clients and retain existing clients;
  • the financial success of the Company’s clients;
  • the Company’s ability to remain in compliance with its credit facility;
  • risks arising from material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting;
  • the Company’s ability to retain and attract key employees;
  • the successful completion and integration of acquisitions which complement and expand the Company’s business capabilities;
  • foreign currency fluctuations; and
  • risks associated with the delisting procedure initiated by the Nasdaq Stock Market Listing Qualifications Department, due to the fact that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq’s Marketplace Rule 4310(c)(14) because the Company has not yet filed with the SEC its management report on the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Investors should carefully consider these risk factors and the additional risk factors outlined in more detail in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K under the caption “Risk Factors” and in the Company’s other SEC filings.
