Safe Harbor

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe harbor" to encourage companies to provide prospective information, so long as those informational statements are identified as forward-looking and are accompanied by meaningful, cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those discussed. The Company desires to take advantage of these provisions. This report contains cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected in this discussion and analysis, and in any other statements made by officers of the Company in oral discussions with analysts and contained in documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC). Forward-looking statements are not based on historical information and relate to future operations, strategies, financial results or other developments. In particular, statements containing words such as "expect," "anticipate," "believe," "goal," "objective" or similar words generally qualify as forward-looking. The Company undertakes no obligation to update such forward-looking statements. The Company cautions that the following factors, in addition to other factors mentioned from time to time in the Company's reports filed with the SEC, could cause the Company's actual results to differ materially: regulatory developments, competitive conditions, new products, Japanese Ministry of Finance approval of profit repatriations to the United States, general economic conditions in the United States and Japan, changes in U.S. and/or Japan tax laws, adequacy of reserves, credit and other risks associated with the Company's investment activities, significant changes in interest rates and fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates.
