Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-looking Statements

This website includes 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, and forward-looking information within the meaning of Canadian securities laws (collectively, “forward-looking statements”). 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. Such forward-looking statements include statements about, among other things, Arbutus’ future development plans for its product candidates, the expected cost, timing and results of its clinical development plans and clinical trials, Arbutus’ expectations and goals for its collaborations with third parties and any potential benefits related thereto; the potential for Arbutus’ product candidates to achieve success in clinical trials; and Arbutus’ expected financial condition, including the anticipated duration of its cash and timing regarding needs for additional capital.  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 and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ from current expectations include, without limitation, anticipated pre-clinical studies and clinical trials my be more costly or might take longer to complete than anticipated, and/or may never be initiated or completed, or may not generate results that warrant future development of the tested product candidate.  Arbutus may elect to change its strategy regarding its product candidates and clinical development activities.  Arbutus may not receive the necessary regulatory approvals for the clinical development of Arbutus’ products, economic and market conditions may worsen; risks and uncertainties associated with ongoing or potential litigation matters; Arbutus and its collaborators may never realize the expected benefits of the collaborations; market shifts may require a change in strategic focus; and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic could significantly disrupt Arbutus’ clinical development programs.

The forward-looking statements 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’ Annual Report on Form 10-K, Arbutus’ Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Arbutus’ continuous and periodic disclosure filings, which are available at www.sedar.com or at www.sec.gov. 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.
