For example, Medigus uses forward looking statements when it discusses the non-binding MOU signed with Automax that the on-demand autonomous charging system is intended to be used anywhere and anytime, that the WPT technology is intended to seamlessly and efficiently charge the vehicle upon demand, and it will carry the WPT from charging station or charging truck, to a customer's vehicle that needs electric charging, as well as the planned features and functionality of the Wireless Power Transfer Technology. These forward-looking statements represent Medigus' expectations or beliefs concerning future events, and it is possible that the results described in this press release will not be achieved, due to inter alia the spread of COVID-19 as well as the restriction deriving therefrom and difficulties arising from the development and manufacture of wireless charging products. The MOU described herein is non-binding and the definitive agreement may not be signed.
