This news release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act. Forward-looking statements include statements regarding the anticipated closing date of the transaction and anticipated future results.

They often include words like “believe”, “expect”, “anticipate”, “estimate” and “intend” or future or conditional verbs such as “will”, “would”, “should”, “could” or “may”. Certain factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from expected results include the ability to meet closing conditions to the merger on the expected terms and schedule, delays in completing the merger, difficulties in achieving cost savings from the merger or in achieving such cost savings within the expected time frame, difficulties in integrating Standard, increased competitive pressures, changes in the interest rate environment, changes in general economic conditions, legislative and regulatory changes that adversely affect the business in which Standard and Dollar are engaged, changes in the securities markets and other risks and uncertainties.

Given its ongoing and dynamic nature, it is difficult to predict the full impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the business of Standard, Dollar and other financial institutions. The extent of such impact will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain, including when the coronavirus can be controlled and abated and when and how the economy may be reopened or remain reopened.
