During such IR Quiet Period, the Company will refrain from responding to any questions or making any comments concerning its financial results or earnings forecast; provided, however, that the Company will make announcements as appropriate and in a timely manner in the event of a material fact which the Company determines may affect investors' decisions, or if such information is required to be disclosed under applicable laws, regulations or Timely Disclosure Rules.
