The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K and accompanying exhibit is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for the purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of such section, nor shall such information be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.


Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Statements contained or incorporated by reference into this Current Report on Form 8-K that refer to estimated or anticipated future results, including estimated synergies, or other non-historical expressions of fact are forward-looking statements that reflect current perspective of existing trends and information as of the date of this communication. Forward looking statements generally will be accompanied by words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “plan,” “could,” “should,” “estimate,” “expect,” “forecast,” “outlook,” “guidance,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “will,” “possible,” “goal,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” or other similar words, phrases or expressions. Such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements about the benefits of the acquisition of Inuvo by ConversionPoint Holdings, Inc. including future financial and operating results, Inuvo’s or ConversionPoint Technologies Inc.’s plans, objectives, expectations and intentions and the expected timing of completion of the transaction. It is important to note that Inuvo’s, ConversionPoint Technologies’ and/or ConversionPoint Holdings’ goals and expectations are not predictions of actual performance. Actual results may differ materially from Inuvo’s, ConversionPoint Technologies’ and ConversionPoint Holdings’ current expectations depending upon a number of factors affecting Inuvo’s business, ConversionPoint Technologies’ business, and ConversionPoint Holdings’ business and risks associated with acquisition transactions generally. These factors include, among others, the inherent uncertainty associated with financial projections; restructuring in connection with, and successful closing of, the merger transaction among Inuvo, ConversionPoint Technologies and ConversionPoint Holdings; subsequent integration of the business of Inuvo and the business of ConversionPoint Technologies upon the closing of the merger transaction and the ability to recognize the anticipated synergies and benefits of the merger transaction; the ability of ConversionPoint Holdings to obtain the required $36 million in financing upon commercially reasonable terms, including risks that the financing values the equity of ConversionPoint Holdings less than the estimates of equity valuation set forth herein; the ability to obtain the requisite Inuvo and ConversionPoint Technologies stockholder approvals; the risk that a condition to closing of the merger transaction may not be satisfied on a timely basis or at all; the failure of the proposed merger transaction to close for any other reason; risks relating to the value of the ConversionPoint Holdings shares to be issued in the transaction; risks relating to the ability of ConversionPoint Holdings to list its shares on The NASDAQ Capital Market and the Toronto Stock Exchange; the anticipated size of the markets and continued demand for Inuvo’s and ConversionPoint Technologies’ products; the impact of competitive products and pricing; the risks and uncertainties normally incident to the ecommerce industry; the difficulty of predicting the timing or outcome of pending or future litigation or government investigations; changes in generally accepted accounting principles; costs and efforts to defend or enforce intellectual property rights; the loss of key senior management or staff; and such other risks and uncertainties detailed





in Inuvo’s periodic public filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including but not limited to Inuvo’s “Risk Factors” section contained in Inuvo’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017, and Form 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2018, and the Form S-4 filed by ConversionPoint Holdings with the SEC on December 17, 2018 and from time to time in Inuvo’s other investor communications. Except as expressly required by law, Inuvo disclaims any intent or obligation to update or revise these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this press release.
