Forward-looking statements caution

This website includes forward-looking statements and information (collectively, “forward-looking statements”), which reflect the current view of Arbutus Biopharma ("Arbutus") with respect to future events and financial performance. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "anticipate", "plan", "foresee", "believe" or “continue” or the negatives of such terms or variations of them or similar terminology. Any such forward-looking statements are based on Arbutus' current expectations, estimates, projections and assumptions made in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends. Any such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties and Arbutus’ actual results of operations could differ materially from historical results or current expectations.


Arbutus cautions readers that should certain risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary significantly from those expected. The risks that could cause actual results to differ from current expectations include, without limitation, risks associated with the inherent uncertainty of pharmaceutical research, product and clinical development, regulatory approvals and product commercialization, the impact of competitive products, patents, product liability and third-party reimbursement risks associated with the pharmaceutical industry.


The forward-looking statements and information contained on this Website represent Arbutus’ views as at the date thereof and are subject to change after such date. A more complete discussion of the risks and uncertainties facing Arbutus appears in Arbutus’ continuous disclosure filings, which are available at or at All forward-looking statements provided on this website are qualified in their entirety by this cautionary statement, and Arbutus disclaims any obligation to revise or update any such forward-looking statements or to publicly announce the result of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect future results, events or developments, except as required by law. You should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.
