This Current Report includes certain statements that are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as "believe," "may," "will," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," "should," "would," "plan," "predict," "potential," "seem," "seek," "future," "outlook," and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding projections, estimates and forecasts of revenue and other financial and performance metrics and projections of market opportunity and expectations, the expectation that the combined company’s Class A common stock will be listed on Nasdaq, and the anticipated closing date of the proposed Business Combination. These statements are based on various assumptions and on the current expectations of DFHT, CareMax management and IMC management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of DFHT, CareMax and IMC. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including the outcome of judicial and administrative proceedings to which CareMax or IMC may become a party or governmental investigations to which CareMax or IMC may become subject that could interrupt or limit CareMax’s or IMC’s operations, result in adverse judgments, settlements or fines and create negative publicity; changes in CareMax’s or IMC’s clients’ preferences, prospects and the competitive conditions prevailing in the healthcare sector; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the proposed Business Combination, including the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the proposed Business Combination or that the approval of the stockholders of DFHT and/or the equity holders of CareMax or IMC for the proposed Business Combination is not obtained; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed Business Combination, including as a result of a delay in consummating the proposed Business Combination or a delay or difficulty in integrating the businesses of DFHT, CareMax and IMC; the amount of redemption requests made by DFHT’s stockholders; those factors discussed in DFHT’s proxy statement filed relating to the Business Combination, including those under "Risk Factors" therein, and other documents of DFHT filed with the SEC. If the risks materialize or assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither DFHT, CareMax nor IMC presently know or that DFHT, CareMax and IMC currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements. In addition, forward-looking statements reflect DFHT’s, CareMax’s and IMC’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this Current Report. DFHT, CareMax and IMC anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause DFHT’s, CareMax’s and IMC’s assessments to change. However, while DFHT, CareMax and IMC may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, DFHT, CareMax and IMC specifically disclaim any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing DFHT’s, CareMax’s and IMC’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this Current Report. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
