Forward-looking statements include statements regarding intentions, beliefs, projections, outlook, analyses or current expectations concerning, among other things, the Company’s restatement of its financial statements for the impacted periods, including the expected impact of such restatement on the Company’s financial statements; the Company’s plans to file amended financial statements and to report fourth quarter and year-end 2023 financial results on or before March 14, 2024; and the Company’s ability to develop and deliver readily available allogeneic CAR T products for cancer treatment on-demand, more reliably, and at greater scale to more patients.
