This Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto contain forward-looking statements of AVEO Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (AVEO or the Company) that involve substantial risks and uncertainties. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, contained in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto, are forward-looking statements. The words anticipate, believe, estimate, expect, intend, may, plan, predict, project, target, potential, will, would, could, should, continue, contemplate, or the negative of these terms or other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words. These forward-looking statements include, among others, statements about: AVEOs estimates for its definitive 2014 year-end cash balance; AVEOs goals and business strategy and its ability to optimize its resources; the timing and results of preclinical and clinical trials; AVEOs approach to treat cachexia; and AVEOs plans to leverage biomarkers and pursue strategic partnerships for certain of its assets.
Actual results or events could differ materially from the plans, intentions and expectations disclosed in the forward-looking statements that the Company makes due to a number of important factors, including risks and uncertainties inherent in pharmaceutical research and development, such as those related to: AVEOs ability to successfully implement its restructuring and strategic plans; AVEOs ability to successfully develop, test and gain regulatory approval of its product candidates; AVEOs ability to obtain necessary financing; AVEOs ability to establish and maintain new strategic partnerships; AVEOs ability to obtain, maintain and enforce intellectual property rights; competition; AVEOs dependence on its strategic partners and other third parties; adverse economic conditions; and those risk factors discussed in the Risk Factors and elsewhere in AVEOs Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, and other periodic filings AVEO makes with the SEC. The forward-looking statements in this Form 8-K and the exhibit attached hereto represent the Companys views as of the date of this Form 8-K. The Company anticipates that subsequent events and development will cause its views to change. However, while it may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, it has no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing the Companys views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Form 8-K.
