Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements that involve
a number of risks and uncertainties. Important factors that could cause actual
results to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements
include risks and uncertainties relating to: the duration and severity of the
COVID-19 pandemic; the need to develop new products and adapt to significant
technological change; implementation of strategies for improving growth; general
economic conditions and related uncertainties; dependence on customers' capital
spending policies and government funding policies; the effect of economic and
political conditions and exchange rate fluctuations on international operations;
use and protection of intellectual property; the effect of changes in
governmental regulations; any natural disaster, public health crisis or other
catastrophic event; and the effect of laws and regulations governing government
contracts, as well as the possibility that expected benefits related to recent
or pending acquisitions, including our pending acquisition of PPD, Inc., may not
materialize as expected. Additional important factors that could cause actual
results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking
statements are set forth in our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and
subsequent quarterly report on Form 10-Q, which are on file with the SEC and
available in the "Investors" section of our website under the heading "SEC
Filings." While we may elect to update forward-looking statements at some point
in the future, we specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, even if
estimates change and, therefore, you should not rely on these forward-looking
statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to today.
