The Company cautions that forward-looking statements are subject to

including its Annual Report on Form 10-K, the following factors, among
others, could cause results to differ materially from forward-looking

consistently generate operating profits; fluctuations in the Company's
revenues and operating results; the Company's competitive environment
and its competitive position; ExOne's ability to enhance its current
three-dimensional ("3D") printing machines and technology and develop
new 3D printing machines; the Company's ability to qualify more
industrial materials in which it can print; demand for ExOne's products;
the availability of skilled personnel; the impact of loss of key
management; the impact of market conditions and other factors on the
carrying value of long-lived assets; the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern; the impact of customer specific terms in machine
sale agreements on the period in which the Company recognizes revenue;
risks related to global operations including effects of foreign
currency; the adequacy of sources of liquidity; the amount and
sufficiency of funds for required capital expenditures, working capital,
and debt service; dependency on certain critical suppliers; nature or
impact of alliances and strategic investments; reliance on critical
information technology systems; the effect of litigation, contingencies
and warranty claims; liabilities under laws and regulations protecting
the environment; the impact of governmental laws and regulations;
operating hazards, war, terrorism and cancellation or unavailability of
insurance coverage; the impact of disruption of the Company's
manufacturing facilities or EACs; the adequacy of ExOne's protection of
its intellectual property; and expectations regarding demand for the
Company's industrial products, operating revenues, operating and
maintenance expenses, insurance expenses and deductibles, interest
expenses, debt levels, and other matters with regard to outlook.

These and other important factors, including those discussed in the
Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, may cause the Company's actual
results of operations to differ materially from any future results of
operations expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements
contained therein. Before making a decision to purchase ExOne common
