1 Digital Farms, Inc. Investor Presentation Subsidiary of DPW Holdings, Inc. (NYSE : American symbol : SAFE HARBOR STATEMENT This presentation and other written or oral statements made from time to time by representatives of DPW Holdings, Inc. (sometime s referred to as “DPW”) contain “forward looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21 E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Forward looking statements reflect the current view about future events. Statements that are not historical in nature re, such as forecasts for the industry in which we operate, and which may be identified by the use of words like “expects,” “assumes,” “projects,” “anticipate ate s,” “estimates,” “we believe,” “could be,” "future" or the negative of these terms and other words of similar meaning, are forward looking statements Such statements include, but are not limited to, statements contained in this presentation relating to our business, business strategy, expansion, growth, products and services we may offer in the future and the timing of their development, sales and marketing strategy and capital outlook. Forward looking statements are based on management’s current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions and are subject to inherent risks, uncertainties and changes of circumstances that are difficult to predict and may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated or expressed. We caution you therefore against relying on any of these forward looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include those risk factors d discussed in Part I, “Item 1A. Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10 K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Annual Report”) and other information contained in subsequently filed current and periodic reports, each of which is available on our website and on the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website www.sec.gov Any forward looking statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to the factors discussed in the 2018 Annual Report. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize (or in certain cases fail to materialize), or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may differ significantly from those anticipated, believed, estimated, expected, intended or planned. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward looking statements include: a decline in general economic conditions nationally and internationally; decreased demand for our products and services; market acceptance of our products; the ability to protect our intellectual property rights; impact of any litigation or infringement actions brought against us; competition from other pro vid ers and products; risks in product development; inability to raise capital to fund continuing operations; changes in government regulation, the ability to complete customer transactions and capital raising transactions. Factors or events that could cause our actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us t o predict all of them. We cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, we do not intend to update any of the forward looking statements to conform these statements to actual results. All forecasts are provided by management in this presentation and are based on information available to us at this time and management expects that internal projections and expectations may change over time. In addition, the forecasts are entirely on management’s best estimate of our future financial performance given our current contracts, current backlog of opportunities and conversations with new and existing customers about our products.
