12. FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Site and documents or other information linked to this Site, including without limitation press releases and webcasts, contain forward-looking statements that are based upon current expectations and that involve risks and uncertainties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “estimate” or “continue” or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those stated in any forward-looking statements based on a number of factors and other risks more specifically identified in Veritone’s most recent periodic reports and other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Although Veritone believes that the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could prove inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance that the results contemplated in the forward-looking statements will be realized.
