Statements on this website and of the management or representatives of Vape Holdings Inc. (the “Company”) in connection therewith that relate to beliefs, plans, objectives, goals, expectations, anticipations, intentions and future financial condition, results of operations or business performance constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations about future events.  These statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts, and by words such as “may,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “believe,” “expect,” “project,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “intend,” “plan” or other similar words or expressions.

Any or all of the forward-looking statements on this website or made by management may turn out to be in accurate or wrong.  This can occur as a result of inaccurate assumptions or as a consequence of significant known or unknown risks and uncertainties.  The Company addresses these risks in the “Risk Factors” section of its filings with the SEC.  Because of these risks and uncertainties, the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those that might be anticipated from its forward-looking statements.  Therefore, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.  The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

Also, in presenting this material and responding to inquiries in connection to future performance of the company, management may refer to results, projections, or performance measures that are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) as reported in the company’s SEC filings.  You are advised that these results, projections, or performance measures are non-GAAP measures and are not intended to replace or as a substitute for results measured under GAAP but rather as a supplement to the GAAP reported results.
