INDUSTRY AND MARKET DATA
We obtained the industry, market and competitive position data used throughout this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference
herein from our own internal estimates and research, as well as from industry publications and research, surveys and studies conducted by third parties. Industry publications, studies and surveys
generally state that they have been obtained from sources believed to be reliable, although they do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information. While we believe that each of these
publications, studies and surveys is reliable, we have not independently verified industry, market and competitive position data from third-party sources. While we believe our internal business
research is reliable and the market definitions are appropriate, neither such research nor these definitions have been verified by any independent source.
