Forward-looking Statements
This presentation includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of the United States Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to our expected future financial and operating performance,
growth in the markets in which our products are sold, our market share for our products, and our significant
customers. We may use words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “could,” “seeks,”
“estimates,” and variations of such words and similar expressions in identifying forward-looking statements. In
addition, any statements which refer to expectations, projections, our stock value multiple, the value of Golden-i
products, or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. These
statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions which
are difficult to predict. Actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in
such forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. We refer you to
the documents the Company files from time to time with Securities and Exchange Commission, and specifically the
“Risk Factors” section of the Company’s Form 10-K for the period ended December 31,2011 and Form 10-Q for the
three month period ended March 31, 2012. We do not undertake to update or revise any forward-looking
statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
