IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE INFORMATION
LIMITATIONS OF HCM OPTIMIZED TREND INDICATOR (OTI)
Please Note: The HCM Optimized Trend Indicator (“OTI”) is a tool developed by Howard Capital Management, Inc. (“Howard”) to help assist a subscriber to determine what portion, if any, of the subscriber’s company stock should be bought, sold or held in the subscriber’s retirement portfolio as of a particular date. Subscriber maintains absolute discretion as to whether or not to follow the OTI. It remains the subscriber’s exclusive responsibility to review and evaluate the OTI and his/her company stock and to determine whether to accept or reject any recommendation and to correspondingly determine whether any OTI recommendation is appropriate for his/her financial situation, or investment objective (for which Howard has and expresses no knowledge or opinion).
Howard does not offer or provide investment implementation services, nor does it offer or provide initial or ongoing individual personalized OTI advice (neither in person nor via the Internet) to Optimizer subscribers.. Howard will nothave and will not accept any trading authority for the subscriber’s retirement account. Thus, it shall always remain the subscriber’s exclusive responsibility to review and evaluate the OTI and to determine whether to accept or reject any OTI recommendation, and if accepted, to then subsequently implement such recommendation on his/her own without assistance from Howard.
The subscriber acknowledges and understands that the OTI is an opinion only, based upon Howard’s judgment as of a particular date. The OTI opinion could be wrong. No current or prospective subscriber should assume that investment in, or purchase and sale of, his/her company stock based upon the OTI will be profitable for his/her retirement portfolio. Unlike the mutual funds that are available for investment in the subscriber’s retirement portfolio, individual equities such as the subscriber’s company stock are not diversified positions, and may be subject to greater volatility and principal risk. Subscribers should be guided accordingly.
Subscribers do not receive investment supervisory or investment management services from Howard. The OTI is not tailored to any particular subscriber’s individual’s risk parameters, financial situation, or investment objective(s). It is the subscriber’s exclusive responsibility to determine what portion of company stock, if any, is suitable for his/her financial situation and/or investment objectives, both initially and on an ongoing basis. No subscriber should assume that his/her subscription serves as a substitute for individual personalized investment supervisory and/or management services from an investment professional of the subscriber’s choosing regarding the ownership of the subscriber’s company stock in the subscriber’s retirement portfolio.
Please Remember: Past performance may not be indicative of future results. Different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment will either be suitable or profitable for a subscriber or prospective subscriber’s investment portfolio. Therefore, no current or prospective subscriber should assume that investment in his company stock is appropriate for his/her financial situation or investment objective, or that the future performance of his/her company stock will be profitable or equal any specific performance level(s).
RELEASE: Each subscriber or prospective subscriber acknowledges and accepts the limitations of the OTI and agrees, as a condition precedent to his/her access to the OTI, to release and hold harmless Howard, its members, officers, directors, owners, employees, affiliates, and agents from any and all adverse consequences resulting from his/her/its use of OTI, including, but not limited to, investment losses resulting from the subscriber’s implementation of any of OTI recommendations.
