Some of the information on this website contains forward-looking statements. Such statements include, in particular, statements about Horizon’s plans, strategies and prospects for success. You can generally identify forward-looking statements by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “believe,” “continue” or other similar words. You should not rely on any forward-looking statements because the matters they describe are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other unpredictable factors that are beyond Horizon’s control, which could cause our actual results to differ materially from those projected in any forward-looking statement we make. Actual results may vary from these projections, and the variations may be material.
