This Site and documents or other information linked to this Site, including without limitation press releases and webcasts, contain forward-looking statements that are based upon current expectations and that involve risks and uncertainties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, words such as "may," "will," "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "intend," "could," "estimate" or "continue" or the negative or other variations thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. In addition, any statements that refer to expectations, projections or other characterizations of future events or circumstances are forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results may differ materially from those stated in any forward-looking statements based on a number of factors and other risks more specifically identified in Newport's most recent Form 10-K and other SEC filings. Although Newport believes that the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could prove inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance that the results contemplated in the forward-looking statements will be realized.

CHOICE OF LAW AND FORUM

If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is found to be invalid by any court having competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such provision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of these Terms and Conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect. No waiver of these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or any other term or condition. Unless otherwise specified herein, these Terms and Conditions constitute the entire agreement between you and Newport with respect to the Site and the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions and supersede all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals (whether oral, written or electronic) between you and Newport with respect to the Site and the subject matter of these Terms and Conditions.
