FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

The content of our Site may contain forward-looking statements that are based on management’s beliefs, assumptions, current expectations, estimates and projections about the grocery wholesale distribution, grocery retail and pharmacy industries, the economy, and about our company and its subsidiaries. Words such as “anticipates,” “believes,” estimates,” “expects,” “forecasts,” “intends,” “is likely,” “plans,” “predicts,” “projects,” or variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions (“Risk Factors”) that are difficult to predict with regard to timing, extent, likelihood and degree of occurrence. Therefore, actual results and outcomes may materially differ from what may be expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking statements. Furthermore, We undertake no obligation to update, amend or clarify forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Risk Factors include, but are not limited to, uncertainties relating to changes in demand for our products; changes in consumer preferences or spending patterns; the cost and availability of inventories, services, labor and equipment furnished to the Company; the degree of competition by our competitors; changes in government and regulatory policies; changes in trading policies or import and export regulations; changes in interest rates, tax laws, duties or applicable assessments; technological developments; and changes in domestic or international economic conditions. These matters are representative of the Risk Factors that could cause a difference between an ultimate actual outcome and a forward-looking statement. Other Risk Factors are discussed in the periodic reports we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. In particular, please refer to the discussion of “Risk Factors” in Item 1A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, which is available under the “Investor Relations” section of our website.
