Forward-looking StatementsThe linked discussion (the “presentation”) contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by these statements. You can generally identify our forward-looking statements by the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “can,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “goal,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “objective,” “outlook,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “projection,” “seek,” “should,” “target,” “trend,” “will,” “would” or the negative version of these words or other comparable words. Any statements in this presentation regarding our business strategy and our ability to scale, the competitive landscape, margins, financial performance, our potential opportunities within existing enterprise customers, innovation and product offerings, the potential impact of COVID-19 and the success of our business following the resolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, future product or service offerings, expected customer growth or net retention, the anticipated benefits of previously announced or future acquisitions to us and our customers, our acquisition strategy, our ability to retain and attract new employees, and any other statements that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements. We have based our forward-looking statements on our management’s beliefs and assumptions based on information available to our management at the time the statements are made. We caution you that assumptions, beliefs, expectations, intentions and projections about future events may and often do vary materially from actual results. Therefore, actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements.
The following are some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements: (i) the COVID-19 pandemic, including the global economic uncertainty and measures taken in response, could materially impact our business and future results of operations; (ii) larger well-funded companies shifting their existing business models to become more competitive with us; (iii) our ability to provide or adapt our platform for changes in laws and regulations or public perception, or changes in the enforcement of such laws, relating to data privacy; (iv) the effects of companies more effectively catering to our customers by offering more tailored products or platforms at lower costs; (v) adverse general economic and market conditions reducing spending on sales and marketing; (vi) the effects of declining demand for sales and marketing subscription platforms; (vii) our ability to improve our technology and keep up with new processes for data collection, organization, and cleansing; (viii) our ability to provide a highly accurate, reliable, and comprehensive platform moving forward; (ix) our reliance on third-party systems that we do not control to integrate with our system and our potential inability to continue to support integration; (x) our ability to adequately fund research and development potentially limiting introduction of new features, integrations, and enhancements; (xi) our ability to attract new customers and expand existing subscriptions; (xii) a decrease in participation in our contributory network or increased opt-out rates impacting the depth, breadth, and accuracy of our platform; (xiii) our failure to protect and maintain our brand and our ability to attract and retain customers; (xiv) our failure to achieve and maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting; (xv) our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses, services, databases and technologies into our operations; (xvi) our ability to successfully forecast the future performance of acquired businesses, services, databases and technologies upon integration; (xvii) our substantial indebtedness, which could adversely affect our financial condition, our ability to raise additional capital to fund our operations, our ability to operate our business, our ability to react to changes in the economy or our industry, and our ability to meet our obligations under our outstanding indebtedness, and could divert our cash flow from operations for debt payments; (xviii) the parties to our stockholders agreement controlling us and their interests conflicting with ours or our other stockholders in the future; (xix) our being a “controlled company” within the meaning of the Nasdaq rules and, as a result, qualifying for exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements, as a result of which our stockholders will not have the same protections afforded to stockholders of companies that are subject to such requirements; and (xx) other factors described under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and in other reports we file from time to time with the SEC. These factors should not be construed as exhaustive. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, our actual results may differ materially from those projected in our forward-looking statements. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures, investments, or other strategic transactions we may make. Each forward-looking statement contained in this presentation speaks only as of the date of this presentation, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as required by law.
