1. Forward-Looking Statements
This Website may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In addition, except for the historical information contained therein, the matters set forth in Polycom's press releases and announcements are also forward-looking statements, and these forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of the press release or announcement. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties. These statements relate to future periods, future events or our future operating or financial plans or performance. These statements can often be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "expects," "believes," "intends," "anticipates," "estimates," "plans," "may," or "will," or the negative of these terms, and other similar expressions. These forward-looking statements reflect our current views with respect to future events, are based on assumptions and are subject to risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. For a discussion of some of the factors that may cause results to differ, see Polycom's SEC reports, available via the Investor Relations section of this Website or at www.sec.gov. Polycom disclaims any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements as a result of new information or future events or developments.
