Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains statements relating to Pivotal’s expectations, projections, beliefs, and prospects (including statements regarding Pivotal’s expected growth in the demand for its products and services), which are "forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the federal securities laws and by their nature are uncertain. Words such as "believe," "may," "will," "estimate," "continue," "anticipate," "intend," "expect," "plans," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance, and you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including but not limited to: (i) Pivotal’s limited operating history as an independent company, which makes it difficult to evaluate Pivotal’s prospects; (ii) the substantial losses Pivotal has incurred and the risks of not being able to generate sufficient revenue to achieve and sustain profitability; (iii) Pivotal’s future success depending in large part on the growth of Pivotal’s target markets; (iv) Pivotal’s future growth depending largely on Pivotal Cloud Foundry and Pivotal’s platform-related services; (v) Pivotal’s subscription revenue growth rate not being indicative of Pivotal’s future performance or ability to grow; (vi) Pivotal’s business and prospects being harmed if customers do not renew their subscriptions or expand their use of Pivotal’s platform; (vii) any failure by Pivotal to compete effectively; (viii) Pivotal’s long and unpredictable sales cycles that vary seasonally and which can cause significant variation in the number and size of transactions that can close in a particular quarter; (ix) Pivotal’s lack of control of and inability to predict the future course of open-source technologies, including those used in Pivotal Cloud Foundry; and (x) any security or privacy breaches. All information set forth in this release is current as of the date of this release. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and are subject to uncertainties, risks, assumptions, and changes in condition, significance, value and effect as well as other risks disclosed previously and from time to time in documents filed by us with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including Pivotal’s prospectus dated April 19, 2018, and filed pursuant to Rule 424(b) under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Additional information will be made available in Pivotal’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other future reports that Pivotal may file with the SEC, which could cause actual results to vary from expectations. Pivotal disclaims any obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time except as required by law.
