This Internet site contains "forward-looking statements" as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. The user is cautioned not to rely on these forward-looking statements. These statements, at the time they were made, were based on then-current expectations of future events.
If underlying assumptions prove or have proven to be inaccurate or unknown or if risks or uncertainties materialize or have materialized, actual results could vary or already may have varied materially from the company's expectations and projections contained or reflected in these statements.
These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, economic factors, such as interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; competition, including technological advances, new products and patents attained by competitors; challenges inherent in product research and development, including uncertainty of clinical success and obtaining regulatory approvals; challenges to patents; the impact of patent expirations; significant adverse litigation or government action, including related to product liability claims; the ability of the company to successfully execute strategic plans including restructuring plans; market conditions and the possibility that the on-going share repurchase program may be delayed, suspended or discontinued; the impact of business combinations and divestitures; changes to applicable laws and regulations including tax laws and global health care reforms; trends toward health care cost containment; changes in behavior and spending patterns or financial distress of purchasers of health care products and services; financial instability of international economies and legal systems and sovereign risk; manufacturing difficulties or delays, internally or within the supply chain; increased scrutiny of the health care industry by government agencies; product efficacy or safety concerns resulting in product recalls or regulatory action; and the potential failure to meet obligations in compliance agreements with government bodies.
