These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause the actual results to differ materially from the expected results. Most of these factors are outside Legacy’s and the Blue Impact business’ control and are difficult to predict. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to: (1) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to the termination of the share exchange agreement, (2) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Legacy and other transaction parties following the announcement of the share exchange agreement and the transactions contemplated therein; (3) the inability to complete the proposed transaction, including due to failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of Legacy or other conditions to closing in the share exchange agreement; (4) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could otherwise cause the transaction to fail to close; (5) the receipt of an unsolicited offer from another party for an alternative business transaction that could interfere with the proposed transaction; (6) the inability to obtain or maintain the listing of the post-acquisition company’s common stock on the New York Stock Exchange following the proposed transaction; (7) the risk that the proposed transaction disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the proposed transaction; (8) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of the combined company to operate cohesively as a standalone group, grow and manage growth profitably and retain its key employees; (9) costs related to the proposed transaction; (10) changes in applicable laws or regulations; (11) the possibility that the Blue Impact business or the combined company may be adversely affected by other economic business, and/or competitive factors; (12) the aggregate number of Legacy shares requested to be redeemed by Legacy’s stockholders in connection with the proposed transaction and the Extension; (13) the risk that current trends in digital media and marketing decelerate or do not continue; (14) the ability of the Blue Impact business to ameliorate or otherwise mitigate its existing material weaknesses and any material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting or significant deficiencies that may be identified in the future; (15) estimates for the financial performance of the Blue Impact business may prove to be incorrect or materially different from actual results; and (16) other risks and uncertainties indicated from time to time in the proxy statement relating to the proposed transaction, including those under “Risk Factors” therein, and in Legacy’s other filings with the SEC.
