The Financial Statements contain and reflect adequate provision or allowance for all reasonably anticipated liabilities, expenses and losses of the Company and the Subsidiary. Except as set forth in the Financial Statements, neither the Company nor the Subsidiary has no material liabilities or obligations, contingent or otherwise, other than (i) liabilities incurred in the ordinary course of business subsequent to the Financial Statement Date; (ii) obligations under contracts and commitments incurred in the ordinary course of business; and (iii) liabilities and obligations of a type or nature not required under U.S. GAAP to be reflected in the Financial Statements, which, in all such cases, individually and in the aggregate would not have a Material Adverse Effect.
