CAUTIONARY LANGUAGE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This site may contain statements, estimates or projections that constitute "forward-looking statements" as defined under U.S. federal securities laws. These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the context of the statement or the use of forward-looking terminology, such as “believes,” “estimates,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “expects,” “plans,” “is confident that” or words of similar meaning. Similarly, statements that describe STI’s future operating performance, financial results, financial position, plans, objectives, strategies or goals are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on STI’s current expectations. Known and unknown internal and external risks and uncertainties may cause the actual results to be materially different from those expressed in or implied by the forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date they are made. STI undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements.
