meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating, economic or financial
performance. This equally applies to all statements relating to an industry, city, country, region,
economic variable or company financial situation. Icon Group recommends that the reader
follow the advice of Nancy M. Smith, Director of SEC's Office of Investor Education and
Assistance, who has been quoted to say, "Never, ever, make an investment based solely on what
you read in an online newsletter or Internet bulletin board, especially if the investment involves a
small, thinly-traded company that isn't well known … Assume that the information about these
companies is not trustworthy unless you can prove otherwise through your own independent
research." Similar recommendations apply to decisions relating to industry studies, product
category studies, corporate strategies discussions and country evaluations. In the case of Icon
Group reports, many factors can affect the actual outcome of the period discussed, including
exchange rate volatility, changes in accounting standards, the lack of oversight or comparability
in accounting standards, changes in economic conditions, changes in competition, changes in the
global economy, changes in source data quality, changes in reported data quality, changes in
methodology and similar factors.
Information Accuracy. Although the statements in this report are derived from or based upon
various information sources and/or econometric models that Icon Group believes to be reliable,
we do not guarantee their accuracy, reliability, quality, and any such information, or resulting
analyses, may be incomplete, rounded, inaccurate or condensed. All estimates included in this
report are subject to change without notice. This report is for informational purposes only and is
not intended as a recommendation to invest in a city, country, industry or product area, or an offer
or solicitation with respect to the purchase or sale of a security, stock, or financial instrument.
This report does not take into account the investment objectives, financial situation or particular
needs of any particular person or legal entity. With respect to any specific company, city,
country, region, or industry that might be discussed in this report, investors should obtain
individual financial advice based on their own particular circumstances before making an
investment decision on the basis of the information in this report. Investing in either U.S. or non-
U.S. securities or markets entails inherent risks. In addition, exchange rate movements may have
an effect on the reliability of the estimates provided in this report. Icon Group is not a registered
