4. Quiet Periods
In order to prevent leaks of financial information before announcement and ensure fairness, SG Holdings observes a quiet period prior to the announcement of business results. During this period, we do not comment on or answer questions concerning business results or forecasts. However, in the event that results are expected to differ substantially from forecasts, SG Holdings will disclose such information as appropriate under the Rules for Disclosure.
5. Forward-Looking Statements
Statements made by SG Holdings with respect to plans, forecasts and strategies that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements involving reasonable assumptions based on information available at the time of disclosure. These forward-looking statements include risks and other uncertainties related to economic trends, market demand and various other factors.
