This press release contains forward looking statements, including those related to sales levels to Comcast. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those set forth in these statements. Among other things, an increase in the fair value of the warrants prior to vesting will require us to reduce our GAAP revenues associated with sales to Comcast; we may not achieve the milestones or minimum sales levels necessary for the warrants to vest; the income from the sales covered by the warrants may not offset the cost of the warrants; the dilutive impact of the issuance of the warrants may cause greater volatility in the trading price of our ordinary shares; and we may face adverse customer reaction to the issuance of the warrants. These factors are not intended to be an all-encompassing list of risks and uncertainties that may affect the Company’s business. Additional information regarding these and other factors can be found in the Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended July 1, 2016. In providing forward-looking statements, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update publicly or otherwise these statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
