Elements That Could Affect Our Working Outcomes
A whole dialogue of things which will affect our outcomes of operations might be present in our Annual Report on Kind 10-Okay for the yr ended December 31, 2020, filed with the
SECon February 5, 2021, which is accessible on the SEC'sweb site at www.sec.gov.
