 SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT  Certain statements in this presentation and responses to various questions include forward-looking statements including statements regarding our opportunities and expectations from the nursing education sector, the future federal regulatory impact on Aspen, the impact of our increased marketing spend, future liquidity, and our strategic plans and financial forecasts and projections. The words “believe,” “may,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “should,” “plan,” “could,” “target,” “potential,” “is likely,” “will,” “expect” and similar expressions, as they relate to us, are intended to identify forward-looking statements. We have based these forward-looking statements largely on our current expectations and projections about future events and financial trends that we believe may affect our financial condition, results of operations, business strategy and financial needs. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ from those in the forward-looking statements include competition, difficulties the new Trump administration may encounter changing existing regulations including delays and litigation, ineffective media and/or marketing, changes in the nursing industry which make having a degree less attractive, failure to maintain growth in degree seeking students, our assumptions that we base our projections/forecasts on turn out to be inaccurate, failure to close acquisition of regionally accredited university and failure to generate sufficient revenue. Further information on our risk factors is contained in our filings with the SEC, including the 10-K dated July 27, 2016. Any forward-looking statement made by us herein speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of them. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise, except as may be required by law.Regulation G - Non-GAAP Financial Measures  This presentation includes a discussion of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Gross Margins, non-GAAP financial measures.
