6. Limits on Accuracy

The website was developed as a service by Hologic to provide information about its products and services. Information is believed to be accurate at the time it is created. However, like any printed material, information may become outdated over time. Information on the website may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. Information may be changed or updated without notice. There may also be improvements or changes in the products and services described in the website at any time without notice. It is important that you rely on the advice of an appropriate professional. Nothing contained in any presentation is to be construed as medical, legal, investment, financial, or other advice. This information is not intended to be a substitute for such advice. Hologic does not endorse any specific surgical techniques or methods of treatment. It is up to the individual health care professional to use their best medical judgment when determining appropriate patient care or surgical techniques. Individuals are advised to consult their health care professionals for full information about the potential adverse reactions from use of the medical technologies discussed in this site. Hologic will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information on the website, but Hologic makes no warranties or representations as to its accuracy. All users agree that all access to and use of the website is at their own risk.

7. Forward Looking Statements

 From time to time, Hologic or its representatives may have made or may make forward-looking statements, orally or in writing. Such forward-looking statements may be included in, but, not limited to, press releases, oral statements made by or with the approval of an authorized executive officer, or in this report or other filings made by Hologic with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The words or phrases ''trend,'' ''expect,'' ''grow,'' ''will,'' ''could,'' ''likely result,'' ''planned,'' ''continued,'' ''anticipated,'' ''estimated,'' ''projected,'' ''scheduled,'' ''could have,'' ''intended,'' ''believes,'' ''continuing,'' ''considers,'' ''may be,'' ''assessed,'' ''contingency,'' or similar expressions are intended to identify ''forward-looking statements'' within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Hologic wishes to ensure that such statements are accompanied by meaningful cautionary statements, so as to maximize to the fullest extent possible the protections of the safe harbor established in said Act. Accordingly, such statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to and are accompanied by the following discussion of certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements. Investors should also be aware of factors that could have an impact on Hologic's business or financial position or performance. Reference is also made to other parts of this report and the Hologic's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, available from Hologic upon request, that includes additional information concerning factors that could adversely impact Hologic's business or financial position or performance. Moreover, Hologic operates in a changing and very competitive business environment. New risks may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all risk factors, nor can it necessarily identify or assess the impact of all such factors on Hologic or the extent to which any factor or combination of factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results.
