Forward Looking Statements and Accuracy of Information
Certain statements on the Website are forward looking statements. These forward looking statements are not based on historical facts but rather on management’s expectations regarding future growth, results of operations, performance, future capital and other expenditures (including the amount, nature and sources of funding thereof), competitive advantages, business prospects and opportunities. Statements on the Website about Silvercorp’s future plans and intentions, results, levels of activity, performance, goals or achievements or other future events constitute forward looking statements. Wherever possible, words such as “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “may”, “could”, “will”, “potential”, “intend”, “estimate”, “should”, “plan”, “predict” or the negative or other variations of these words, or similar words or phrases, have been used to identify these forward looking statements. Such forward looking statements reflect current beliefs and assumptions of Silvercorp’s management and are based on information currently available to management. Forward looking statements involve significant known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions and other factors that may cause Silvercorp’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from those implied by the forward looking statements. These factors should be considered carefully and prospective investors should not place undue reliance on the forward looking statements. Although the forward looking statements contained on the Website are based upon what management believes to be reasonable assumptions, Silvercorp cannot assure investors that actual results will be consistent with these forward looking statements.
Forward looking statements and other content on the Website are based on information that is no more current than the date the statements or information are posted on the Website and Silvercorp assumes no obligation to update or revise the information provided to reflect new events or circumstances. Information contained on the Website is provided on an “as is” basis and is subject to change without notice. This information may be inaccurate, out-of-date, or otherwise incorrect. Please contact Silvercorp to obtain current information.
