These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on 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 Shapeways and Galileo. These forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political, and legal conditions; the inability of the parties to successfully or timely consummate the proposed transaction, including the risk that any 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 transaction or that the approval of the stockholders of Galileo or Shapeways is not obtained; a default by one or more of the investors in the PIPE on its commitment, and Galileo's failure to retain sufficient cash in its trust account or find replacement financing in order to meet the $100 million minimum cash condition in the Merger Agreement; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed transaction; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to Shapeways; risks related to the rollout of Shapeways’ business and the timing of expected business milestones; the effects of competition on Shapeways’ business; the amount of redemption requests made by Galileo’s stockholders; the ability of Galileo or Shapeways to issue equity or equity-linked securities or obtain debt financing in connection with the proposed transaction or in the future, and those factors discussed in Galileo’s final prospectus dated October 17, 2019 under the heading "Risk Factors," and other documents Galileo has filed, or will file, with the SEC. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither Galileo nor Shapeways presently know, or that Galileo nor Shapeways 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 Galileo’s and Shapeways’ expectations, plans, or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this press release.

These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing Galileo’s and Shapeways’ assessments of any date subsequent to the date of this press release. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
