Trading in Securities involves risk and volatility. Past results are not necessarily indicative of future performance.
The Information represents an expression of our opinions, which we have based upon generally available information, field research, inferences and deductions through our due diligence and analytical processes. Due to the fact that opinions and market conditions change over time, opinions made available by and through the MS Microcaps LLC Offerings may differ from time-to-time, and varying opinions may also be included in the MS Microcaps LLC Offerings simultaneously.

The Information may include, or may be based upon, “Forward-Looking” statements as defined in the Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-Looking statements may convey our expectations or forecasts of future events, and you can identify such statements: (a) because they do not strictly relate to historical or current facts; (b) because they use such words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect(s),” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “anticipates” or the negative thereof or other similar terms; or (c) because of language used in discussions, broadcasts or trade ideas that involve risks and uncertainties, in connection with a description of potential earnings or financial performance. There exists a variety of risks/uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ from the Forward-Looking statements. We do not assume any obligation to update any Forward-Looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, and such statements are current only as of the date they are made.

21. Dispute Resolution, Class Action Waiver and Arbitration. The Agreement shall be treated as though it were executed and performed in New York, NY and shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of New York (without regard to conflict of law principles). Should a dispute arise concerning the MS Microcaps LLC Offerings, the terms and conditions of the Agreement or the breach of same by any party hereto: (a) the parties agree to submit their dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties; and (b) each User agrees to first commence a formal dispute proceeding by completing and submitting an Initial Dispute Notice which can be found Here. We may choose to provide petitioning Users with a final written settlement offer after receiving such User’s Initial Dispute Notice (“Final Settlement Offer”). If we provide a petitioning User with a Final Settlement Offer and that User does not accept it, or we cannot otherwise satisfactorily resolve that User’s dispute and that User wishes to proceed, that User must submit its dispute for resolution by arbitration before a reputable arbitration organization as mutually agreed upon by the parties, in that User’s county of residence, by filing a separate Demand for Arbitration, which is available Here. If the arbitrator awards a User relief that is greater than our Final Settlement Offer, then we will pay all filing, administration and arbitrator fees associated with the arbitration and, if that User retained an attorney to represent it in connection with the arbitration, we will reimburse any reasonable attorneys’ fees that such User’s attorney accrued for investigating, preparing and pursuing the claim in arbitration. Any award rendered shall be final and conclusive to the parties and a judgment thereon may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to preclude any party from: (i) seeking injunctive relief in order to protect its rights pending an outcome in arbitration; and/or (ii) pursuing the matter in small claims court rather than arbitration. Although we may have a right to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses if we prevail in arbitration, we will not seek such an award from any User unless the arbitrator determines that such User’s claim was frivolous.
To the extent permitted by law, each User agrees that it will not bring, join or participate in any class action lawsuit as to any claim, dispute or controversy that it may have against MS Microcaps LLC and/or its employees, officers, directors, members, representatives and/or assigns. Each User agrees to the entry of injunctive relief to stop such a lawsuit or to remove it as a participant in the suit. Each User agrees to pay the attorney’s fees and court costs that MS Microcaps LLC incurs in seeking such relief. This provision preventing Users from bringing, joining or participating in class action lawsuits: (A) does not constitute a waiver of any User’s rights or remedies to pursue a claim individually and not as a class action in binding arbitration as provided above; and (B) is an independent agreement. Any User may opt-out of these dispute resolution provisions by providing written notice of her/his decision within thirty (30) days of the date that it first accesses the Site.
