This press release contains both historical and forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the Private Offering and plans, projections and estimates regarding the use of proceeds from the Private Offering. All statements other than statements of historical fact are, or may be deemed to be, forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of statements that include phrases such as “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “foresee,” “likely,” “may,” “will,” “would” or other words or phrases with similar meanings. Similarly, statements that describe Catalent’s objectives, plans or goals are, or may be, forward-looking statements. These statements are based on current expectations of future events. If underlying assumptions prove inaccurate or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, actual results could vary materially from Catalent’s expectations and projections. Some of the factors that could cause actual results to differ include, but are not limited to, the following: Catalent’s integration of Paragon Bioservices, Inc. into its overall operations or realizing on the anticipated business from the acquisition; changes to Catalent’s business, its industry or the overall economic climate, general industry conditions and competition; product or other liability risk inherent in the design, development, manufacture and marketing of its offerings; inability to enhance Catalent’s existing or introduce new technology or services in a timely manner; economic conditions, such as interest rate and currency exchange rate fluctuations; technological advances and patents attained by competitors; and Catalent’s substantial debt and debt service requirements that restrict its operating and financial flexibility and impose significant interest and financial costs; or difficulty in integrating other acquisitions into Catalent’s existing business, thereby reducing or eliminating the anticipated benefits of the acquisition. For a more detailed discussion of these and other factors, see the information under the caption “Risk Factors” in Exhibit 99.2 of Catalent’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on June 24, 2019 and Catalent’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018 filed with the SEC.
