Terms & Conditions
NOTICE TO OUR READERS
1. Accuracy of Information
The information on our Web site is provided to you for information purposes only and does not constitute investment advice. We attempt to be as accurate as possible when providing you with information about us on the Web site; however, to the extent permitted by applicable law, we do not warrant that the content available on the Web site is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. We reserve the right to add, modify, correct or delete any information to or from the Web site at any time without any notice. We make no commitment, however, to update or correct such information.
a. SEC Filings and News Releases
The reports filed by us with the Securities and Exchange Commission and the news releases issued by us and posted on the Web site speak only as of the respective dates on which they are filed or issued by us. The contents of these reports and releases can become out-of-date. We make no commitment, and disclaim any duty, to update any of these reports and releases. We do not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the materials or the reliability of any advice, opinion, statement or other information displayed or distributed through the Web site. You acknowledge that any reliance on any such opinion, advice, statement, memorandum, report or information shall be at your sole risk.
b. Marketing Content
The marketing contents of our Web site are for informational purposes only and do not constitute an offer of securities. Nothing herein is intended as an offer or solicitation in any jurisdiction or to any potential investor where such offer or sale is not qualified or exempt from regulation.
c. Medical Advice
The Web site provides selected information about a range of disease topics. Like any printed material, it may become out of date over time. The Web site is not designed to give specific medical advice and should not be relied on as doing so. Regeneron recommends that any user requiring medical advice should consult a physician or other medical professional.
Product information contained in the Web site is intended for residents of the United States, unless otherwise specified. Product labeling for Regeneron products approved for marketing outside of the United States may be different from the product labeling for such products approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
d. Information for the "Educated" Investor
There are "ups" and "downs" in practically every business and stock. Although there are no guarantees about the stock market or our stock or other securities, before you invest in any security, you can help protect yourself by being an educated investor. If you are interested in our stock, we recommend that, at a minimum, you read our latest annual report and our reports on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and 8-K filed with the SEC over the past year. Our recent proxy statements for shareholder meetings also contain important information. It is also advisable to learn more about us and our industry through a variety of public materials. Certain materials, including our filings with the SEC, are available through this web site or the SEC's web site at http://www.sec.gov.
e. Forward-Looking Statements
We and our representatives from time to time make written or oral forward-looking statements, including statements contained in the Web site, in press releases and in filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and in our reports to stockholders. The words and phrases "will likely result," "expects," "believes," "will continue," "is anticipated," "estimates," "projects" or similar expressions are intended to identify "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements include, without limitation, our expectations regarding sales, earnings or other future financial performance and liquidity, product introductions, entry into new geographic regions, new methods of sale and future operations or operating results. Although we believe that our expectations are based on reasonable assumptions within the bounds of our knowledge of our business and operations, there can be no assurance that actual results will not differ materially from our expectations. Factors that could cause actual results to differ from expectations include risks associated with product discovery and development as well as risks detailed from time to time in Regeneron's public disclosure filings with the SEC, including its most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. There can be no assurance that such development efforts will succeed, that such products will receive required regulatory clearance or that, even if such regulatory clearance were received, such products would ultimately achieve commercial success. Copies of Regeneron's public disclosure filings are available on this web site or through the SEC's web site at http://www.sec.gov.
