In this context, forward-looking statements may address matters such as our expected future business and financial performance, and often contain words such as "guidance," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "should," or "will." Forward-looking statements by their nature address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. For Fortress, particular uncertainties that could adversely or positively affect the Company's future results include: the Company's reliance on a significant portion of its revenues from a limited number of customers; the uncertainty as to whether the Company can replace its declining backlog; risks involved in properly managing complex projects; risks relating to revenues under customer contracts, many of which can be canceled on short notice; risks related to the implementation of the Company's strategic plan, including the ability to make acquisitions and the performance and future integration of acquired businesses; and other risks and uncertainties disclosed in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. These uncertainties may cause the Company's actual future results to be materially different than those expressed in the Company's forward-looking statements.
