uncertainties that face the Company; such statements may contain such words as
"may", "would", "could", "will", "intend", "plan", "anticipate", "believe",

current assumptions and expectations related to all aspects of the automotive

benefits expected while under development, or on a timely basis or the Company
may not be able to successfully incorporate this technology into its current
or proposed products; steps taken by the Company to protect its proprietary
rights may not be adequate or third parties may infringe or misappropriate the
Company's proprietary rights; the Company has a history of losses from
operations and may not be able to obtain financing, if and when required, to
fund future expenditures for general administrative activities, including
sales and marketing and research and development, expansion, strategic
acquisitions or investment opportunities or to respond to competitive
pressures; competitors may develop products which offer greater benefits to
consumers, have greater market appeal or are more competitively priced than
those offered by the Company; the Company may be exposed to product liability
claims which exceed insurance policy limits; the Company is dependent on the
ability and experience of a relatively small number of key personnel; new
products introduced by the Company may not be accepted in the market or to the
extent projected; new laws and regulations may be enacted or existing ones may
be applied or governmental action may be taken in a manner which could limit
or curtail the production or sale of the Company's products; and the Company
may be negatively affected by reduced consumer spending due to the uncertainty
of economic and geopolitical conditions. These risks and uncertainties may
cause actual results to differ from information contained in this release,
when estimates and assumptions have been used to measure and report results.

contained in this release will prove to be accurate. Actual results and future
