Forward Looking Statements

This web site contains certain "forward-looking statements", within the meaning of the Federal securities laws. These include statements about expected revenues, earnings, expenses or other financial performance, future product performance or development, expected regulatory filings and approvals, planned business transactions, views of future industry or market conditions, other factors that could affect future operations or financial position, and statements that include the words "believes", "expects", "anticipates", "intends", "plans", "estimates", "may", "will", "should", "could" or similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance or results. Known and unknown factors could cause actual performance or results to be materially different from those expressed or implied in these statements. Some of these factors are: ability to market products; impact of competitors, competing products and technology changes; ability to develop, commercialize and market new products; market acceptance of oral fluid testing products and up-converting phosphor technology products; ability to fund research and development and other projects and operations; ability to obtain and timing of obtaining necessary regulatory approvals; ability to develop product distribution channels; uncertainty relating to patent protection and potential patent infringement claims; ability to enter into international manufacturing agreements; obstacles to international marketing and manufacturing of products; ability to sell products internationally; loss or impairment of sources of capital; exposure to product liability and other types of litigation; changes in international, federal or state laws and regulations; changes in relationships with strategic partners and reliance on strategic partners for the performance of critical activities under collaborate arrangements; changes in accounting practices or interpretation of accounting requirements; equipment failures and ability to obtain needed raw materials and components; the impact of terrorist attacks and civil unrest; and general political, business and economic conditions. These and other factors are discussed more fully in the latest Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings of OraSure Technologies, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Although forward-looking statements help to provide complete information about future prospects, you should keep in mind that forward-looking statements may not be reliable. The forward-looking statements are made as of the dates indicated in the web site and OraSure Technologies undertakes no duty to update these statements.
