8. INVESTOR RELATIONS
Forward Looking Statements: Some of the information on this Site or that is available by accessing hyperlinks included on this Site may contain "forward-looking statements," as that term is defined within the meaning of the Federal securities laws. These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historic or current facts. They use such words as "anticipate", "estimate", "expect", "project", "intend", "plan", "believe", and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. These forward-looking statements are based on currently available information, but are subject to a variety of uncertainties, unknown risks and other factors concerning our operations and business environment, which are difficult to predict and may be beyond our control. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors, including those described in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC").
The risks and uncertainties that we identify from time to time, including those identified in our filings with the SEC, are not the only risks AGC faces. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we believe to be immaterial also may adversely affect AGC. Should any known or unknown risks or uncertainties develop into actual events, or underlying assumptions prove inaccurate, these developments could have material adverse effects on our business, financial condition and results of operations. We undertake no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent events or changed assumptions or circumstances.
Stock Quote Disclaimer: The AGC stock price is delayed a minimum of twenty minutes. The stock price is provided merely for your information and is not intended for trading purposes. Neither AGC nor its stock information provider will be liable for any inaccuracies or delays in the quote or for any actions taken by you in reliance on the quote.
9. UNSOLICITED IDEAS
AGC does not accept or consider unsolicited ideas, including ideas for new advertising campaigns, new products or technologies, or new product names. Please do not send any such unsolicited ideas. If you send any such information, the information will be deemed, and shall remain, the property of AGC. None of the information will be treated as confidential or proprietary, and AGC shall not be liable for any use or disclosure of such information. AGC shall be entitled to unrestricted use of such information for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or otherwise, without compensation to the provider of the information.
