This communication contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. In this context, forward-looking statements often address expected future business and financial performance and financial condition, and often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “would,” “target,” similar expressions, and variations or negatives of these words.

We caution readers that these and other forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to risks and uncertainties related to (i) the ability to obtain Liquidia Technologies stockholder and regulatory approvals, or the possibility that they may delay the merger transaction or that such regulatory approval may result in the imposition of conditions that could cause the parties to abandon the merger transaction, (ii) the risk that a condition to closing of the merger transaction may not be satisfied; (iii) the ability of Liquidia Technologies and RareGen to integrate their businesses successfully and to achieve anticipated cost savings and other synergies, (iv) the possibility that other anticipated benefits of the proposed merger transaction will not be realized, including without limitation, anticipated revenues, expenses, earnings and other financial results, and growth and expansion of the new combined company’s operations, and the anticipated tax treatment, (v) potential litigation relating to the proposed merger transaction that could be instituted against Liquidia, RareGen or their respective officers or directors, (vi) possible disruptions from the proposed merger transaction that could harm Liquidia Technologies’ or RareGen’s business, including current plans and operations, (vii) the ability of Liquidia Technologies or RareGen to retain, attract and hire key personnel, (viii) potential adverse reactions or changes to relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, licensees, collaborators, business partners or other parties resulting from the announcement or completion of the merger transaction, (ix) potential business uncertainty, including changes to existing business relationships, during the pendency of the merger transaction that could affect Liquidia’s and/or RareGen’s financial performance, (x) certain restrictions during the pendency of the merger transaction that may impact Liquidia Technologies’ or RareGen’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions, (xi) continued availability of capital and financing and rating agency actions, (xii) legislative, regulatory and economic developments and (xiii) unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including, but not limited to, global pandemics such as coronavirus, acts of terrorism or outbreak of war or hostilities, as well as management’s response to any of the aforementioned factors. These risks, as well as other risks associated with the proposed merger transaction, will be more fully discussed in the proxy statement/prospectus that will be included in the registration statement on Form S-4 that will be filed with the SEC in connection with the proposed merger transaction. While the list of factors presented here is, and the list of factors to be presented in the registration statement on Form S-4 are, considered representative, no such list should be considered to be a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements.
