CLEAR CHANNEL OUTDOOR HOLDINGS, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

Note 1: BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Preparation of Interim Financial Statements

The accompanying consolidated financial statements were prepared by Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and adjustments necessary for adoption of new accounting standards) necessary to present fairly the results of the interim periods shown. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such SEC rules and regulations. Management believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. Due to seasonality and other factors, the results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The financial statements contained herein should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries and give effect to allocations of expenses from the Company’s indirect parent entity, Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“Clear Channel Communications”). These allocations were made on a specifically identifiable basis or using relative percentages of headcount or other methods management considered to be a reasonable reflection of the utilization of services provided. Investments in companies in which the Company owns 20 percent to 50 percent of the voting common stock or otherwise exercises significant influence over operating and financial policies of the company are accounted for under the equity method. All significant intercompany transactions are eliminated in the consolidation process.

Certain prior-period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the 2010 presentation.

Note 2: PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT, INTANGIBLE ASSETS AND GOODWILL

Restructuring Program

In the fourth quarter of 2008, the Company initiated a company-wide strategic review of its costs and organizational structure to identify opportunities to maximize efficiency and realign expenses with the Company’s current and long-term business outlook (the “restructuring program”). As of June 30, 2010, the Company had incurred a total of $104.5 million of costs in conjunction with this restructuring program.

No assurance can be given that the restructuring program will achieve all of the anticipated cost savings in the timeframe expected or at all, or that the cost savings will be sustainable. In addition, the Company may modify or terminate the restructuring program in response to economic conditions or otherwise.

Share-based Compensation Expense

The effective tax rate is the provision for income taxes as a percent of income from continuing operations before income taxes. The Company’s effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was 22.8% and 18.2%, respectively, compared to an effective rate of 16.2% and 12.6% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively. The 2010 effective rate was impacted primarily as a result of the Company’s inability to benefit from tax losses in certain foreign jurisdictions due to the uncertainty of the ability to utilize those losses in future years. The change in the effective rate compared to the same period of the prior year was impacted primarily as a result of a deferred tax valuation allowance recorded in 2009 due to the uncertainty of the Company’s ability to utilize Federal and foreign tax losses at that time and the impairment charge on goodwill recorded in 2009.

Note 5: FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company holds marketable equity securities classified in accordance with the provisions of ASC 320-10. These marketable equity securities are measured at fair value on each reporting date using quoted prices in active markets. Due to the fact that the inputs used to measure the marketable equity securities at fair value are observable, the Company has categorized the fair value measurements of the securities as Level 1. The Company records its investments in these marketable equity securities on the balance sheet as “Other Assets.”

The cost, unrealized holding gains or losses, and fair value of the Company’s marketable equity securities at June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, respectively, are as follows:

Note 6: COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company and its subsidiaries are currently involved in certain legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business and, as required, the Company has accrued its estimate of the probable costs for resolution of those claims for which the occurrence of loss is probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated. These estimates have been developed in consultation with counsel and are based upon an analysis of potential results, assuming a combination of litigation and settlement strategies. It is possible, however, that future results of operations for any particular period could be materially affected by changes in the Company’s assumptions or the effectiveness of its strategies related to these proceedings.

As of June 30, 2010, Clear Channel Communications had outstanding commercial standby letters of credit and surety bonds of $47.0 million and $42.8 million, respectively, held on behalf of the Company. These letters of credit and surety bonds relate to various operational matters, including insurance, bid and performance bonds, as well as other items.

Note 7: RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Company records net amounts due to or from Clear Channel Communications as “Due from/to Clear Channel Communications” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The accounts represent the revolving promissory note issued by the Company to Clear Channel Communications and the revolving promissory note issued by Clear Channel Communications to the Company, in the face amounts of $1.0 billion, or if more or less than such amounts, the aggregate unpaid principal amount of all advances. The accounts accrue interest pursuant to the terms of the promissory notes and are generally payable on demand.

Included in the accounts are the net activities resulting from day-to-day cash management services provided by Clear Channel Communications. As a part of these services, the Company maintains collection bank accounts swept daily into accounts of Clear Channel Communications. In return, Clear Channel Communications funds the Company’s controlled disbursement accounts as checks or electronic payments are presented for payment. The Company’s claim in relation to cash transferred from its concentration account is on an unsecured basis and is limited to the balance of the “Due from Clear Channel Communications” account. At June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, the asset recorded in “Due from Clear Channel Communications” on the condensed consolidated balance sheets was $147.0 million and $123.3 million, respectively. As June 30, 2010, we had no borrowings under the cash management note to Clear Channel Communications.

The net interest income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 was $3.8 million and $7.2 million, respectively. The net interest income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009 was $0.1 million and $0.2 million, respectively. At June 30, 2009, the interest rate on the “Due from Clear Channel Communications” account was 0.09%, which represented the average one-month generic treasury bill rate. At June 30, 2010, the interest rate on the “Due from Clear Channel Communications” account was 9.25%.

Clear Channel Communications has a $2.0 billion multi-currency revolving credit facility with a maturity in July 2014 which includes a $150.0 million sub-limit that certain of the Company’s International subsidiaries may borrow against to the extent Clear Channel Communications has not already borrowed against this capacity and is compliant with its covenants under the revolving credit facility.

The Company provides advertising space on its billboards for radio stations owned by Clear Channel Communications. For the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the Company recorded $0.8 million and $1.2 million, respectively, in revenue for these advertisements. For the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the Company recorded $1.8 million and $1.3 million, respectively, in revenue for these advertisements.

Under the Corporate Services Agreement between Clear Channel Communications and the Company, Clear Channel Communications provides management services to the Company, which include, among other things: (i) treasury, payroll and other financial related services; (ii) executive officer services; (iii) human resources and employee benefits services; (iv) legal and related services; (v) information systems, network and related services; (vi) investment services; (vii) procurement and sourcing support services; and (viii) other general corporate services. These services are charged to the Company based on actual direct costs incurred or allocated by Clear Channel Communications based on headcount, revenue or other factors on a pro rata basis. For the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the Company recorded $9.8 million and $7.9 million, respectively, as a component of corporate expenses for these services. For the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the Company recorded $18.6 million and $14.2 million, respectively, as a component of corporate expenses for these services.

Pursuant to the Tax Matters Agreement between Clear Channel Communications and the Company, the operations of the Company are included in a consolidated federal income tax return filed by Clear Channel Communications. The Company’s provision for income taxes has been computed on the basis that the Company files separate consolidated federal income tax returns with its subsidiaries. Tax payments are made to Clear Channel Communications on the basis of the Company’s separate taxable income. Tax benefits recognized on the Company’s employee stock option exercises are retained by the Company.

The Company computes its deferred income tax provision using the liability method in accordance with the provisions of ASC 740-10, as if the Company was a separate taxpayer. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting bases and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the periods in which the deferred tax asset or liability is expected to be realized or settled. Deferred tax assets are reduced by valuation allowances if the Company believes it is more likely than not some portion or all of the asset will not be realized.

Pursuant to the Employee Matters Agreement, the Company’s employees participate in Clear Channel Communications’ employee benefit plans, including employee medical insurance and a 401(k) retirement benefit plan. These costs are recorded as a component of selling, general and administrative expenses and were approximately $2.5 million and $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, the Company recorded approximately $5.1 million and $5.0 million, respectively, as a component of selling, general and administrative expenses for these services.

Item 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Introduction

Management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is provided as a supplement to the unaudited interim financial statements and accompanying notes thereto to help provide an understanding of our financial condition, changes in our financial condition and results of our operations. The information included herein should be read in conjunction with the quarterly and annual financial statements. Our reportable operating segments are Americas outdoor advertising (“Americas”) and International outdoor advertising (“International”).

We manage our operating segments primarily focusing on their operating income, while Corporate expenses, Other operating income (expense) – net, Interest expense, Equity in earnings (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliates, Other income (expense) – net and Income tax benefit (expense) are managed on a total company basis and are, therefore, included only in our discussion of consolidated results.

Executive Summary

The key highlights of our business for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 are summarized below:

 

   

Consolidated revenue increased $9.3 million and $35.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2009, including decreases of $6.6 million and increases of $20.4 million from movements in foreign exchange, respectively.

 

   

Americas revenue increased $8.2 million and $9.0 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared to the same periods of 2009, primarily driven by increases in revenue across our advertising inventory, particularly digital.

 

   

International revenue was relatively flat for the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, with growth across multiple markets being offset by decreases from movements in foreign exchange. Revenue increased $26.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily as a result of an increase from movements in foreign exchange.

Restructuring Program and Certain Indenture EBITDA Adjustments

The indenture governing the Series B Senior Notes issued by our subsidiary, Clear Channel Worldwide Holdings, Inc., allows us to adjust the calculation of our adjusted EBITDA (as calculated in accordance with the indenture) for certain charges. These charges include the restructuring costs discussed below. In addition, certain other charges, including costs related to the closure and/or consolidation of facilities, retention charges, systems establishment costs and consulting fees incurred in connection with any of the foregoing, among other items, are also adjustments to the calculation of our adjusted EBITDA. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, our adjusted EBITDA calculation included adjustments for an additional $1.1 million and $2.0 million, respectively. See “SOURCES OF CAPITAL” below for a description of the calculation of our adjusted EBITDA pursuant to the indenture.

In the fourth quarter of 2008, we initiated a company-wide strategic review of our costs and organizational structure to identify opportunities to maximize efficiency and realign expenses with our current and long-term business outlook (the “restructuring program”). As of June 30, 2010, we had incurred a total of $104.5 million of costs in conjunction with this restructuring program.

The following table shows the expenses related to our restructuring program, which are also adjustments to our adjusted EBITDA calculation, recognized as components of direct operating expenses, selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses and corporate expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively:

Total

   $ 12,712    $ 10,040    $ 15,796    $ 17,014
                           

No assurance can be given that the restructuring program will achieve all of the anticipated cost savings in the timeframe expected or at all, or that the cost savings will be sustainable. In addition, we may modify or terminate the restructuring program in response to economic conditions or otherwise.

Consolidated Revenue

Our consolidated revenue increased $9.3 million during the second quarter of 2010 as compared to the second quarter of 2009. Americas revenue increased $8.2 million, primarily from revenue increases across our advertising inventory, particularly digital. Our International revenue increased $1.1 million, primarily from a strong billboard performance in the U.K. and street furniture performance across most countries, partially offset by decreases from movements in foreign exchange.

- 22 -


Our direct operating expenses decreased $7.1 million during the first six months of 2010 as compared to the same period of 2009. Americas direct operating expenses decreased $10.0 million primarily as a result of the disposition of our taxi advertising business. Direct operating expenses in our International segment increased $2.9 million and included a $10.5 million increase from movements in foreign exchange.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses (“SG&A”)

Our SG&A expenses increased $9.4 million during the second quarter of 2010 as compared to the same period of 2009. SG&A expenses increased $12.7 million in our Americas segment primarily as a result of the unfavorable impact of litigation. Our SG&A expenses decreased $3.3 million in our International segment and included a $2.0 million decrease from movements in foreign exchange.

Our SG&A expenses increased $2.9 million during the first six months of 2010 as compared to the same period of 2009. SG&A expenses increased $8.3 million in our Americas segment, primarily as a result of the unfavorable impact of litigation, partially offset by the disposition of our taxi advertising business. Our International SG&A expenses decreased $5.4 million, including a $2.9 million increase from movements in foreign exchange, offset by a decrease in bad debt expense and business tax.

Corporate Expenses

Corporate expenses increased $8.1 million and $14.6 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, as compared to the same periods of 2009, primarily due to increases in bonus expense from improved operating performance. Also contributing to the increase were costs associated with centralizing corporate activities.

Depreciation and Amortization

Depreciation and amortization decreased $9.5 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily as a result of a decrease of $7.4 million in depreciation and amortization in our International segment in 2010 primarily related to assets that became fully amortized during 2009.

Depreciation and amortization decreased $9.7 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily as a result of a decrease of $10.4 million in depreciation and amortization in our International segment in 2010 primarily related to assets that became fully amortized during 2009.

Interest on Debt with Clear Channel Communications

Interest on debt with our indirect parent entity, Clear Channel Communications, Inc. (“Clear Channel Communications”), decreased $36.8 million and $73.8 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, as compared to the same periods of 2009. The decrease was attributable to the retirement of the $2.5 billion note to Clear Channel Communications in December 2009.

Interest Expense

Interest expense increased $59.0 million and $115.4 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, as compared to the same periods of 2009. The increase was primarily attributable to the issuance by our subsidiary, Clear Channel Worldwide Holdings, Inc., of $2.5 billion aggregate principal amount of senior notes in December 2009, which bear interest at a fixed rate of 9.25% per annum.

Income Tax Benefit

Our operations are included in a consolidated income tax return filed by CC Media Holdings, Inc. (“CC Media Holdings”). However, for our financial statements, our provision for income taxes was computed on the basis that we file separate consolidated Federal income tax returns with our subsidiaries.

Income tax benefits of $0.7 million and $11.4 million were recorded for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, resulting in effective tax rates of 22.8% and 18.2% for those periods, respectively. The 2010 effective rates were impacted primarily as a result of the Company’s inability to benefit from tax losses in certain foreign jurisdictions due to the uncertainty of the ability to utilize those losses in future years.

Income tax benefits of $133.1 million and $112.7 million were recorded for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2009, respectively, resulting in effective tax rates of 16.2% and 12.6% for those periods, respectively. The 2009 effective tax rates were primarily impacted by the impairment charge on goodwill. In addition, the Company recorded deferred tax valuation allowances due the uncertainty of the Company’s ability to utilize Federal and foreign tax losses at that time.

Three Months

Americas revenue increased $8.2 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 as a result of increased revenue across our advertising inventory, particularly digital. The increase was driven by an increase in both occupancy and rate. Partially offsetting the revenue increase was the decrease in revenue related to Taxis.

Direct operating expenses decreased $4.5 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily as a result of the disposition of Taxis. Partially offsetting the decrease was a $6.4 million increase in site-lease expenses associated with the increase in revenue. SG&A expenses increased $12.7 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 primarily as a result of a $9.5 million increase related to the unfavorable impact of litigation, in addition to a $5.7 million increase primarily related to selling and marketing costs associated with the increase in revenue, partially offset by the disposition of Taxis.

Six Months

Americas revenue increased $9.0 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 as a result of increased revenue across our advertising inventory, particularly digital. The increase was driven by an increase in both occupancy and rate. Partially offsetting the revenue increase was the decrease in revenue related to Taxis.

Direct operating expenses decreased $10.0 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009. The decline in direct operating expenses was primarily as a result of the disposition of Taxis, partially offset by an $11.1 million increase in site-lease expenses associated with the increase in revenue. SG&A expenses increased $8.3 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 primarily as a result of a $5.7 million increase related to the unfavorable impact of litigation, in addition to a $3.5 million increase in selling and marketing costs associated with the increase in revenue, partially offset by the disposition of Taxis.

Three Months

International revenue increased $1.1 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009. Strong revenue performance from billboards in the U.K. as well as street furniture across most countries was partially offset by the exit from transit contracts in Spain and from businesses in Greece and India, as well as a $9.1 million decrease from movements in foreign exchange.

Direct operating expenses decreased $2.0 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily from a $7.1 million decrease from movements in foreign exchange and a $4.0 million decline in site-lease expenses as a result of cost savings from our restructuring program. Partially offsetting the decrease was an increase of $7.2 million primarily related to severance costs associated with our restructuring program. SG&A expenses decreased $3.3 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 primarily from a $2.0 million decrease from movements in foreign exchange.

Depreciation and amortization decreased $7.4 million during the second quarter of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 primarily as a result of assets that became fully amortized during 2009.

Six Months

International revenue increased $26.8 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009, primarily as a result of a $15.9 million increase in foreign exchange. Strong revenue performance from billboards in the U.K. as well as street furniture across most countries was partially offset by the exit from transit contracts in Spain and from businesses in Greece, India and the U.K. taxi business.

Direct operating expenses increased $2.9 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009. A $10.5 million increase from movements in foreign exchange along with a $3.5 million increase primarily related to severance costs associated with our restructuring program were partially offset by an $11.9 million decline in site-lease expenses associated with cost savings from our restructuring program. SG&A expenses decreased $5.4 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009. A $2.4 million decline in bad debt expense and a $3.2 million decrease in business tax were partially offset by a $2.9 million increase from movements in foreign exchange.

Depreciation and amortization decreased $10.4 million during the first six months of 2010 compared to the same period of 2009 primarily as a result of assets that became fully amortized during 2009.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Clear Channel Communications’ Merger

Clear Channel Communications’ capitalization, liquidity and capital resources substantially changed due to the consummation of its merger on July 30, 2008 with entities formed by private equity funds sponsored by Bain Capital, LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. Upon the closing of the merger, Clear Channel Communications incurred additional debt and became highly leveraged.

Also, so long as Clear Channel Communications maintains a significant interest in us, pursuant to the Master Agreement between Clear Channel Communications and us, Clear Channel Communications will have the option to limit our ability to incur debt or issue equity securities, among other limitations, which could adversely affect our ability to meet our liquidity needs.

The following discussion highlights our cash flow activities during the six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 respectively.

Cash Flows

Investing activities

Financing activities

   $ (71,470   $ (64,391

Operating Activities

The increase in cash flow from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to the same period of the prior year was primarily driven by improved profitability, including a 3% increase in revenues. Cash flows from operations increased as a result of a $35.3 million increase in deferred revenue and an $18.5 million increase in accrued income taxes, partially offset by a $25.9 million increase in accounts receivable.

Investing Activities

Net cash used for investing activities of $85.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 primarily reflects capital expenditures of $86.7 million. We spent $39.9 million in our Americas segment primarily related to the construction of new billboards and $46.8 million in our International segment primarily related to new billboard and street furniture contracts and renewals of existing contracts.

Net cash used for investing activities of $61.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 primarily reflects capital expenditures of $34.3 million related to the construction of new billboards in our Americas segment and $32.5 million related to new billboard and street furniture contracts and renewals of existing contracts in our International segment.

Financing Activities

Net cash used for financing activities of $71.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 reflects payments on credit facilities and long-term debt of $43.5 million and $7.8 million, respectively, and net transfers to Clear Channel Communications of $23.7 million.

Net cash used for financing activities of $64.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009 primarily reflects payments on credit facilities of $5.9 million and net transfers of cash to Clear Channel Communications of $45.5 million. In addition, we purchased the remaining 15% interest in our fully consolidated subsidiary, Paneles Napsa S.A., for $13.0 million.

Anticipated Cash Requirements

Our primary source of liquidity is cash flow from operations. Based on our current and anticipated levels of operations and conditions in our markets, we believe that cash on hand, cash flows from operations and borrowings under the revolving promissory note with Clear Channel Communications will enable us to meet our working capital, capital expenditure, debt service and other funding requirements for at least the next 12 months.

We expect to be in compliance with the covenants governing our indebtedness in 2010. However, our anticipated results are subject to significant uncertainty and there can be no assurance that we will be able to maintain compliance with these covenants. In addition, our ability to comply with these covenants may be affected by events beyond our control, including prevailing economic, financial and industry conditions.

Furthermore, in its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 9, 2010, CC Media Holdings, our indirect parent, stated that it expects to be in compliance with the covenants under Clear Channel Communications’ material financing agreements in 2010, including the financial covenant contained in its senior credit facilities that limits the ratio of its consolidated senior secured debt, net of cash and cash equivalents, to its consolidated adjusted EBITDA for the preceding four quarters. CC Media Holdings similarly stated in its Quarterly Report that its anticipated results are also subject to significant uncertainty and there can be no assurance that actual results will be in compliance with the covenants. Moreover, CC Media Holdings stated in its Quarterly Report that its ability to comply with the covenants in Clear Channel Communications’ material financing agreements may be affected by events beyond CC Media Holdings’ control, including prevailing economic, financial and industry conditions. As discussed therein, the breach of any covenants set forth in Clear Channel Communications’ financing agreements would result in a default thereunder, and an event of default would permit the lenders under a defaulted financing agreement to declare all indebtedness thereunder to be due and payable prior to maturity. Moreover, as discussed therein, the lenders under the revolving credit facility under Clear Channel Communications’ senior secured credit facilities would have the option to terminate their commitments to make further extensions of revolving credit thereunder. In addition, CC Media Holdings stated in its Quarterly Report that if CC Media Holdings is unable to repay Clear Channel Communications’ obligations under any secured credit facility, the lenders under such secured credit facility could proceed against any assets that were pledged to secure such facility. Finally, CC Media Holdings stated in its Quarterly Report that a default or acceleration under any of Clear Channel Communications’ material financing agreements, including the Notes, could cause a default under other obligations that are subject to cross-default and cross-acceleration provisions.

For so long as Clear Channel Communications maintains significant control over us, a deterioration in the financial condition of Clear Channel Communications could have the effect of increasing our borrowing costs or impairing our access to capital markets. As of June 30, 2010, Clear Channel Communications had $1.5 billion recorded as “Cash and cash equivalents” on its condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Our ability to fund our working capital needs, debt service and other obligations depends on our future operating performance and cash flow. If our future operating performance does not meet our expectations or our plans materially change in an adverse manner or prove to be materially inaccurate, we may need additional financing. We may not be able to secure any such additional financing on terms favorable to us or at all.
