Forward-looking statements herein generally relate to future events or the future financial or operating performance of Relativity, SVES or the combined company expected to result from the Business Combination (the “Combined Company”). Relativity’s and SVES’ actual results may differ from their expectations, estimates and projections and consequently, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as predictions of future events.

These forward-looking statements are based upon beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management of Relativity or SVES and that, while considered reasonable by Relativity, SVES or their respective managements, as the case may be, are subject to risks, uncertainties, and other factors that are inherently uncertain and subject to material change.

These forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results. Most of these factors are outside the control of Relativity and are difficult to predict, including general economic conditions and other risks, uncertainties and factors set forth in Relativity’s SEC filings. 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 Transaction Agreement; (2) the failure of SVES to find financing in connection with the Transaction; (3) the inability to consummate the Transaction in a timely manner or at all, including due to failure to obtain approval of the stockholders of Relativity or other conditions to the closing in the Transaction Agreement, which may adversely affect the price of Relativity’s securities; (4) delays in obtaining or the inability to obtain any necessary regulatory approvals required to complete the Transaction; (5) the risk that the Transaction may not be completed by Relativity’s business combination deadline and the potential failure to obtain an extension of the business combination deadline if sought by Relativity; (6) the ability to maintain the listing of Relativity’s securities on a national securities exchange; (7) the inability to obtain or maintain the listing of the combined company’s securities on The Nasdaq Stock Market following the Transaction; (8) the risk that the Transaction disrupts current plans and operations as a result of the announcement and consummation of the Transaction; (9) the ability to recognize the anticipated benefits of the Transaction and to achieve its commercialization and development plans, and to identify and realize additional opportunities, which may be affected by, among other things, competition, the ability of SVES to grow and manage growth economically and to hire and retain key employees; (10) costs related to the Transaction; (11) changes in applicable laws or regulations and SVES’ ability to comply with such laws and regulations; (12) the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against SVES or against Relativity related to the Transaction Agreement or the Transaction; (13) the enforceability of SVES’ intellectual property, including its patents and the potential infringement on the intellectual property rights of others, (14) the risk of downturns in the highly competitive industry in which SVES operates; (15) the possibility that Relativity or SVES may be adversely affected by other economic, business, and/or competitive factors; and (16) other risks and uncertainties to be identified in the Registration/Proxy Statement (when available) relating to the Transaction, including those under “Risk Factors” therein, and in other filings with the SEC made by Relativity or SVES.
