Because the company cannot provide reassurances, estimates on the final award or, for that matter, a date on when an award may be received cannot be made at this time. “The company, together with its external advisors, continues to take appropriate measures to safeguard the Company’s interests in relation to the legal proceedings of Supervisory Goodwill.”
