Information set forth in this news release includes forward-looking statements that are based on management’s current estimates, beliefs, intentions, and expectations, and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. In particular, there is no assurance that Batory will decide to maintain its exclusivity by purchasing the required amounts under the agreement. Additionally, projected revenue depends on our ability to complete and bring on-line our planned manufacturing facility within the timelines and budget projected. Delays and cost overruns may result in delays in achieving projected revenues and require additional financing which may not be available on acceptable terms. Projected sales of CBD from hemp will require the company to obtain production and / or export licensing which cannot be assured.
All forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain and actual results may be affected by a number of material factors beyond our control. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. BHSC does not intend to update forward-looking statement disclosures other than through our regular management discussion and analysis disclosures.
