Statements in this press release concerning our expectations
regarding the payment of future quarterly dividends are
"forward-looking" statements as defined in Section 21 of the Exchange
Act. These statements are based upon our current expectations and
various underlying assumptions. Although we believe there is a
reasonable basis for these statements and assumptions, and these
statements are expressed in good faith, these statements are subject to
a number of additional factors and uncertainties. Factors that could
affect the determination as to whether we declare cash dividends in any
future quarter include, but are not limited to, the loss of key employee
consultants or non-employee experts; their failure to generate
engagements for us; our inability to attract, hire or retain qualified
consultants, or to integrate and utilize existing consultants and
personnel; the unpredictable nature and risk of litigation-related
projects; dependence on the growth of our management consulting
practice; the change in demand for our services; the potential loss of
clients; changes in the law that affect our practice areas; global
economic conditions including less stable political and economic
environments; civil disturbances or other catastrophic events that
reduce business activity; foreign exchange rate fluctuations; intense
competition; changes in our effective tax rate; integration and
generation of existing and new clients; unanticipated expenses and
liabilities; risks associated with acquisitions (past, present, and
future); risks inherent in international operations; integration and
management of new and existing offices; the ability of clients to
terminate engagements with us on short notice; our ability to collect on
forgivable loans should any become due; general economic conditions; and
professional and other legal liability. Further information on these and
other potential factors that could affect our future business, operating
results, and financial condition is included in our periodic filings
with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including risks under the
heading "Risk Factors." We cannot guarantee any future results, levels
of activity, performance, or achievement. We undertake no obligation to
update any forward-looking statements after the date of this press
release, and we do not intend to do so.
